SCENE OPENS on Diana (Sovereign Syre) quietly walking into her 18-year-old step-son Joshua’s bedroom. The air is melancholy as she slowly walks around the room, touching items that belong to Joshua in a loving way. Her gazes are longing, wistful, and she seems sad. We hear Joshua call out, ‘Mom! I’m home!’ Diana instantly perks up, her mood lightened, as she calls back to him and leaves the room. Diana then greets Joshua (Nathan Bronson), though her greeting seems a bit seductive.
Diana insists that she doesn’t want to date and that raising Joshua was the most important thing in her life. She expresses how she’ll miss him when he goes to college, and that she has an idea on how to make the transition easier. Diana leads Joshua back to his bedroom where they can talk.
CUT TO TITLE
Diana admits that she wants Joshua to impregnate her so that she can raise another child, believing that it’ll help keep Joshua close. Joshua is shocked and reluctant, refusing.
Diana breaks down, begging him for his help and guilt-tripping him. Does he WANT to break his mother’s heart?? Joshua is stopped in his tracks by this argument, seemingly torn between logic and family obligation. Diana latches onto this moment of weakness, tearfully telling him that she won’t ever tell anyone it’s HIS child, if he doesn’t want anyone to know. She knows guys his age are a bit young for so much responsibility…
Joshua is torn but he clearly cares about how distressed Diana is. Finally, he slowly agrees that he will give her what she wants as long as it stays between them. He just wants her to be happy and he hates seeing her like this.
Diana wants to keep a piece of Joshua, but how much is she REALLY going to take from him?
