SENENCA
Why are you so interested
MEMPHIS
It reminds me of something..
SENENCA
Who does it remind you you
Turns and smiles. Memphis sits next to him.
MEMEPHIS
It just feel reposible and im just a responble person… im just nown for being a hard worke rit what made me shaped and modeled me I have to do thing s the hard way because I cant manage to work witbh short cut in life.. People who use short cut get what they ask afor shorts answetrs and fall short to soulutio n to me the truth in solutions is determined by all the qualty put into solving the problem
SENENCA
Ugh!
MEMPHIS
It an old sulan proverb like many of them.
Senenca looks at him and sees his father. She gets up to bed sitting up straight and then gets up and walk over to him.
MEMPHIS (CONT’D)
my dad used to have this older phlsohy of heloing other to benefit yourslef I feel it alosmt the same way but never got uit until he started to make me do corse for our neighbours.. There was this building we owenb and stay and the neigherb who lived there would always rent the property and never clean up there yard.
With his fist on hers chins not looking at him
MEMPHIS (CONT’D)
my dad would always force me the clean them
MEMPHIS (CONT’D)
((STUDING ARTICFACT)
HMMHM
He looks at her.
SENENCA
I was always pissed he made us clean up those yard I felt for no reason but later I understood when I asked on why we were cleaning them he said it beack of this olde metaphpt that if you keep your yard clean athat you should ekeep your neighbor or else the snakes would come over to yours. The idela behind it was that if you help other you would get a benifith.. Is that what you do
MEMPHIS
I feel like when I lied to you tat day when my father died.. I snapped something… when manpilating you… it wasn’t because I was scared it because I wanted my very own short cut.. And like you aid before
SENENCA
That's what I meant
MEMPHIS
I'm sorry about that theat situtation would have been must difffetrnt wastned stubborn Nbo you where scared to I should have invloved you.. Plese don’t tell me that why you feel responile for everything
SENENCA
No no it not there a lot of that
Rubs his hand and face
SENECA
It all comes from axeinty
MEMPHIS
You remind me of my dad
SENENCA
((looks at her))
Is that good thing
MEMPHIS
I don’t know what your opoiion son love
SENENCA
(rubs his hands and losk around)
we custom to love where used to knowing… but sorry to say im not your father and by all means im grantedfigde
Memphis looks down
SENENCA (CONT’D)
But I don’t believe in things like love.. In fac ti don’t believ it exist
MEMPHIS
(giggles)
Hmm
SENECA
HUH
MEMPHIS

(rubs his face)
Go to bed
MEMPHIS
And bossy… explain to me why you dotn believ in love all that peacve knuight rehortic that no one welse takrs seruoisuly other than you…
SENECA

SENENCA
ALike creature like that could exist as I couldn’t be one for someone else
MEMPHI
But yur cant just bekeive you should be alone
SENENCA
ABUT WHERE ACTUALLY IMMEDELGY ALONE
Gets up walk to over to different side of the room.
MEMPHIS
Why do you put all that stuff in your head
SENENCA
The same reason you have the idea of love in yours it just something we all have a right o believ in or not…
MEMPHIS
I don’t understand
SENENCA
Exactly I've really actually seen a person who been perfectly understood.
MEMPHIS
Well why don’t you tell me.. Im sure jada undrstands and has a love
SENENCA
All of those where just illusin ther meries nothing
(hand on his hips)
I just gotta stay focused
MEMPHIS
Seneca why do pretend that ther something wrong
SENENCA
Because im not pretending there is allways something wrong.. It never enough not even when I make perfect priogree sthings some hw could be better.. There is something wrong woith me(hand on his eyes( ugh
MEMPHIS
Well if that true I gues there must be something wrong with every one else to.. Even me Isnt that the pitn…just be have relation on understanding anothr faults
SENECA
No that not he piont t he idea of love or having it.. It only meant as a distraction from existail lonleiliess…
MEMPHIS
You cant jut put a diefintion on something like that.
SENENCA
Well I do
MEMPHIS
How do you know or beleive your right…
SENECA
I know im right(turns around to her smiles)go to bed.
MEMPHIS

sits down with her on the ground as he looks at the artifact)
ROUXJADAMEMPHIS

SENECA
Bad idea for this subject
MEMPHIS
Please go easy on me
SENENC
Go ahead..
MEMPHIS
I can ask any question?
SENENCA
Go ahead im have nothing to be ashamed of…
MEMPHIS
Is that true…
He stop mocve in the artfact in his hand. Dogs howl.
NAS AND DAMOEN
Ow ooiw oow owwo owwo owow ah aha ahaha !
They both lay down sleeping as the dog sleeps next to them.
He sees white flashes. A blured vision of him and his mother comes to fore but he can't see her face.
SENENCA
Mom!
He streches out his arm reaching out for her.
MEMPHIS
Whats wrong?
SENENCA
Nothing… ive just noticed something… that I've been caught up with so much resposiblity… I havn't really found any true happinesss in my life… I spent so much time fiddling with others motives for me, I feel that I've lost in touch on what was important, or something that I wanted at a younger age.
(looks at jada sleeping)
I remember being so young, and very vindictive towards everyone else had these wonderful families, and these nice mothers and fathers that wouldn’t leave or abandon you… I didnt even know mine and mine never really new me… you have a father…
MEMPHIS
I remember him a little… I grew up alittle vindictive aswell… thinking if I became stronger than everybody that maybe they would respect me more. Know that I've been through hell… and i still feel it wasn’t worth it.. You not alone on feeling you’ve wasted time… for me is that i really just don’t care about that anymore… In this world your lucky enough to have someone who cares… until there gone… then theres no time trying to wait for another… youtlak about being afriad of being not enough Its not ass scary as forgetting what some you love sounds like… forgeting there voice and sometime there image… I don’t know what my father sounded like after he died… ten years ago.. Sometimes I think I can imagine it but then I believ im wrong And that’s just one of the awful things about missing someone … forgeting the things that whre imortant
(wipe tears)
…just the mind is an awfull thing … I can read memories to… I read yours im sorry.. Not about well I am but your memeoris as a kid.. You grew up a slave… I look at yours and all I saw was just nobody.. I think there a part of you that missing… or something that hasn’t been found and that why your afriad… you just not ready…and im sorry I took over your mind…
(wipes tears)
I wont do it again
SENENCA
That a lie…
Memphis smiles.
SENENCA (CONT’D)
I'm fine with that...
MEMPHIS
How can you be fine with that?
SENENCA
I don’t know….
MEMPHIS:
(lauhghs)
Do you even know who your father is?
SENENCA
I don’t know my father… or anyone other than my brother in my family. Were where born into slavery when the Blue faction demand settle and power over ours and then they made labor of it… as I got older soon was allowed to be a soldier.. It was either that remain with the grubble.. Why those kids my age where chosen I wont ever know… they just as cabpable … me and my brother swore one day that if we grew to be the best warrois we bretry the creedd and free our friend.. He was the only one to leave.. That was after he found out they killed them all when ending th settle ment
MEMPHIS
Oh god.. Why did'nt you leave..
SENENCA
i… ws the only chance of us surviciving … they sent me to kill him because iw as just as mathced to him and I knew more about.. They wanted to test my loyaltl, I happlye voultered… just to protect my brother… what senes out of this is I ifont know.. Its not corrct ansewr. While none of it.. Why those kids and my peoplke where cabale of having a voice… ill never understand to accept, just as much as I believe you cant bring luck to the eyes of a self made man
MEMPHIS
Is that why you where crying in the forrest…when you heard he died?
SENENCA
Us Areneanins.. Have a faith in believing if you fail you commit suiced .. An awull idea dnand horrible culture… icant tell if the peace knight saqved or ruined my life at that moment… I know I felt I was responoble.. And afte that I know wasn’t doing the right thing
MEMPHIS
I'M SORRY
SENENCA
Seeing someone like that die.. you just want to be with them… I don’t know why.. But I forgot everything I stood for in those mere seconds… I just want to get away from what everyone exspected me to be out it… everyone exptects so much out of you to be perfect and what you seems… when you have so may flaws… im the greatest soldier but kind and that logic doesn’t even speak to a sole… they.. Like I have to be sole or opessimitc dark danty.. Just becoause of the color of my skin.. They belive be agrressive.. I fell all that hates what made me this way….
MEMPHIS
That’s one if my biggest fears… Just being alone by myself and having no purpose. Or just having nothing… die…3 and have nothing
SENENCA
That’s your fear, being afraid and alone… That’s pretty brave sharing that with a stranger…
MEMPHIS
You not a stranger.. You’re a good friend. A good person a wonderful person. I can't imagine all the pain you went through being on your own.
SENECA
I think me and you both know what its like. Just be scared even though being soldiers and not attemping it. Even I get scared… my biggest fear is also being alone.. Be just dieing and being forgetton and to die without a reason like never existed or matter
MEMPHIS
You matter now…
(hugs him)
SENENCA
I am being afraid… just to forget what the people who love you look like, that vision always suddenly changes. I felt everyone I loved as they changed disappeared and turned into people I hated… I didnt know why… I just felt neglected Memphis:I don’t think that’s a problem… Some times fear just blinds us into believing in what we need to know.
SENENCA (CONT’D)
And anger.. Anger is just another expression of love…
MEMPHIS
(giggles)
Says the monk who said love doesn exist
SENENCA:
(Chuckles)
what are you? Stone cold killer with emotion..
MEMPHIS
Truth be told… I do feel bad when kill another human being.. Its trefing ever time I fight …
SENENCA
It is…
He fights the black faction soldier in a vision
SENENCA (CONT’D)
Its nothing personal and I don’t hate anything.. That person may have family hes fighting for its just when your fighting for something you llove you could lose it all… and then you just think no… you don’t think your just moves its just like saving a another person.. You would do anything.
A vision of him saving a little girl with a scared face flashes
SENENCA (CONT’D)
(but you could lose everything…)
MEMPHIS
And?
SENENCA
You've gotten addicted to it
(Smirks)
… that solley is why I become a peace knight. just to become a savouri and defend any fear that harms anyone.. Only I walyas have to remember there comes a price to that force.. Im sope of things I can do and inspite of things I cant do… I am the one in control in that point
He kills the enemy in a vision
SENENCA (CONT’D)
In every action. In every movement for compassion.. With all the anger and fear inside of it… ts just disappears like tears in the reason.. That fear just become nonexistancet and behidn me…
HAS
hasytein listeing from a window)
I don’t know why but.. My body just moves…
He kills black faction soldier.
SENENCA
It makes you think… does compassion hold us back from great things?
MEMPHIS
No…
SENENCA
Its good to hear another person say that and the sound of someone still being human. Do you think I don’t love my family because I chose to be a peace knight?
MEMPHIS
I think you still love those people who left you… I bet you just wanted things to be different that’s why.. But most of all I believe… you make choices that are important all the time and the ones that are different just seems to more
SENENCA
You remind me of my father.
MEMPHIS
I think you keep him alive.
SenencA:Oh really, how?
MEMPHIS (CONT’D)
Just by memory
Quick Flashback:AGUSUTUS
It's okay baby… Will always be alive forever… Especially in memory.
End of FlashMEMPHIS
Tell me… If you believe that? Why would you attempt suicide. And end legacy of your brother and you.
SENECA
At a young age we made a bond that said we'd always be immortal together as slaves… That was a dream, but as we grew, he told me something else, that as long as theres one of usMEMPHIS
Then we will be immortal! If the other one keeps are spirit alive!
SENENCA
I guess my fear got the best of me. And showed me the truth… I forgot that I would be fine right adter his death… But sometimes the fear is to blinding, it trix me
MEMPHI
Then I suppose you where wrong about fear
SENECA
No… I still need that type of lie to keep me moving. Just like fear.. It resembles the same power as love… Both fake true… But what if we forgot about that? And then use them to only guide our attention to what's important.
MEMPHIS
Like something we need to care about. Or remember something that’s important to us.
SENECA
Your life's important. So why be afraid about it? You thought nobody did care about it
MEMPHIS
No… I was just impatient.. I just didnt find out what was important have in it.
SENECA
(simles)
Thank you
MEMPHIS
I'm not talking about you… I'm talking about the dog and the kids
SENENCA
Laughs
even the cat?
MEMPHIS
No not the cat…
SENENCA:
(Laughs)
Why do you do that? Be so despondent?
MEMPHIS
Why don’t you ever smile you have a nice smile
Cato watches
SENENCA
I try not focus on being happy to much
MEMPHIS
Why? Its good to be happy?
SENNECA
Well I think it not healthy for your mentality, see if you always happy and keep trying to make yourself… There be an over exertion.. Youlll espext it.. Which when you always be expected to be happy and when your not your crash the hardest. I say never expect to be happy… Other wise you'd be fooling yourself and expecting nothing new but the same… my problem here is if you always espect to be happy. Youll always be expecting it… Until things are the same and then you just dont feell it anymore.. The best thing about pessimism or noticing the truth of things and how how negative our issue are at hand, things or parts of them that are the really importn information. Like things we could lose and see how important things are to us when they could be gone, is the same thing, your always especting that reaction, untilyou becone calm and you get used to it, and cant recognize fear anymore. That’s when you realize after escpeting it so much things will always be fine
MEMPHIS
But, why? why not be happy all the time like in heaven.
SENENCA
See that’s the problem, it self being a heaven, and why its too true to be an expectation where life is always pleasuruabe its just so imaginary and unleikely, plus I feell like if there was a heaven there would be no true purpose in the afterlife, just like there wouldn’t be one if we where alive.. I feel is nessacry to be pessimitc it just one of those things that keeps us alive
MEMPHIS
Yeah just like a love for heaven
SENECA
Okay… that being said a person has a right believ another persons imagination…
MEMPHIS
I was thinking didn’t see the afterlife when you died
SENECA
No… I didn’t die when I was shot, i passed out… If you really want to know what life is like after death… I say Just simply close your eyes. Then open them its just like waking up to the truth?… We all want to be happy for the rest of our lives but truth is we really need to realize whats true and important in reality than just an expectation for some prize, we do need to be pessimistic sometimes… Just in order to see the truth of things and not walk in paths so blindly… I say never expect everything to be certain or to be too true and when you do. Don’t let it hurt you… It just the honest truth.
Cato tears up.
MEMPHIS
I still want there to be a heaven…
SENECA
What if I said you made me happy but if I did it would be bad for me? Would I be foolish feel something Memphis::No.., that’s not what I ment… I just mean don’t expect everything thing to be certain… Especially your love for some stranger
SENENCA
Your not a stranger
MEMPHIS
Thank you
SENENC
For what?
MEMPHIS
Being kind…. You don’t find things like that these days….you have no idea how hard it is to even a find person that even human… someone like you, that could say something very nice
He touches his hand
Seneca looks at her. Memphis moves in to kiss him.
SENECA
UH!
rolls off in wheel chair
MEMPHIS:
(dodges her)
I'm sorry… I cant do that…
SENENCA
Im Sorry… Its fine..its just ,, you may not hear this frm a from someone or believe this… but sometimes its just gets lonely when your by self for solong…
He holds her hand hard.
MEMPHIS
I'm still here as a friend
Seneca looks at him hacking his minds.
SENECA
I'm too honest sometimes… gues this is why this the best part of me…I bet you get lonely being a monk. But sometime sits just fun to hav a company of a friend…Yeah.. Yeah… your so sweet.. Why are you a monk who also a fighter I don’t get that… why don’t you ever wanna leave
MEMPHI

Senenca gets up next her.
MEMPHI (CONT’D)
It must be lucky to know that… you have all the power in your hand…You can be better than other people you don’t have to agree to them. your are blessed, to be so modest.. God must have made you better with knowledge than others Senenca
Your just lucky… but then again…

Senenca kisses her.
MEMPHIS (CONT’D)

SENENCA (CONT’D)

ROUX

Senenca gets in bed with jada. Jada pulls the flower hat under his pillow.
SENENCA
Why is that right there?
JADA
Its for you to give you the powers to bring here back
SENECA:
(takes it)
Here maybe if I cgive it to you an say it has deeper purose it can bring you mom back.
MEMPHISSENENCA
Like what? That maybe you don’t need here to save you or your dad but you realize with you own power you can get out of anysitutaion and not relaiy on other to save you but yourse
JADA
Always when I have it on?
SENENCA
Well if you ust put it one at least once… then you have the power when you take it off it will all be ther
Jada grabs it from him and fast sits up in bed putting it on her head and then takes it off immediately right in front of her.
SENENCA (CONT’D)
Well that's good you have the power know fg to bed
JADA

Tears fall off her face.

(smiles)
That’s fine pray… It wont do any good you have to work and earn for it…
She comes to the door way, Ammerick looks
AMMEIRKC
Master seneca is such a nice person I wish I cpuld be like him…SENECA
AMMERICK
AMMEIRKC
Why?! Why is it that your stronger than me! Not evrryone us birn like you capable all those great things… You walk ariund everyday better than everybody and don’t even becone greatfull of who you are your just clown a cliwn who walks around believeing nothing! But so stupid fariy tale(gasping) that just not real no one can do anything out support from themselves… It's impossible I cant bring my mom back from the dead and I cant evn tell her I love her! And your trying to say I don’t have that power because I adk god for it… Well screw you I don’t bel in myself cause not capable(tears)And I know it more likely to not be real… But why believe in anything when don’t have nothing
SENENCA
You always have something.. More than just some nonexistent fantasy believe ing in a place that muchs better than this one…is impossible to consive and is a waste of time trying to fathom. Imagining your way out of situation will not unsettlie them… And belief in panicibg isnt an option either but when you need find the truth to solutions you have to search in deep within your own means into finding it. Not letting something guide you to it. Mothing ever granted to you even if you beg the stars to believe you. Its always wise to never to be reluctant off of luck…
AMMEIRKC
UGH..
SENECA
Besides you cant bring luck in the eyes of self made man
AMMEIRKC
What does that mean?
SENECA
Believe in nothing else but yourself
She hits him on his head, he falls back and grabs his forhead
SENECA (CONT’D)
eh… Ugh(Smiles)
SENENCA
Goodnight…
AMMEIRKC
Good night sir
