21.
INT. LIVING ROOM, JASON’S HOUSE – DAY

JASON’S DOPPELGANGER and ZOE are standing in the middle of the room having a row.

EMILY is sat on a large leather sofa, watching ZOE scream at JASON’S DOPPELGANGER. JASON stands by the archway into the living room and watches the proceedings in shock.

ZOE

You fucking waste of good air. How could you forget? Fuck! One thing. I asked you to get one damn, bastard thing!

ZOE punches JASON’S DOPPELGANGER in the face, resulting in a trickle of blood from his nose.

JASON’S DOPPELGANGER

Jesus, Zoe. It’s just garlic. Calm down.

ZOE

Calm down… Just garlic… How the bastering fuck am I going to make bolognese without garlic? Well? How? You stupid shit.

EMILY holds out the buttercup bracelet, as an offering for ZOE.

EMILY

(tentatively)

Mum, look. I made this for you. I used buttercups because they match my dress.

LILITH (O.S.)

Don’t try to interfere, JASON. They can’t hear or see you, and you can do nothing to change the past.

ZOE snatches the flower bracelet from EMILY’S hand, and throws it at JASON’S DOPPELGANGER.

ZOE

Maybe I’ll use that instead of garlic.

JASON’S DOPPELGANGER

Okay, that’s enough.

JASON quickly moves out of the way as JASON’S DOPPELGANGER grabs ZOE by her arm and drags her from the room.

22.
INT. HALLWAY, JASON’S HOUSE – DAY

ZOE pulls herself free from JASON’S DOPPELGANGER.

ZOE

What are you going to do now, fuckwit, hit me? Now you’re out of earshot of your precious little Angel.

JASON’S DOPPELGANGER

No! No, of course I’m not. What the hell, Zoe?

ZOE

No, of course you won’t. Because you’re too much of a fucking wuss. I will, though. I’ll cut your motherfucking throat when you’re asleep.

JASON’S DOPPELGANGER

Shit, Zoe. You don’t know what you’re saying. Look, just try to relax. I’ll go to the shop and get garlic, and a bottle of wine. I’ll get that really good one, you know, the same one we had at the restaurant on your birthday. Can’t pronounce the name, but I remember what the label looks like. Please, Zoe, we’ll sort this out.

ZOE has a blank expression for a moment.

ZOE

Okay, that would be nice. Don’t be too long though.

ZOE walks into the kitchen, leaving JASON’S DOPPELGANGER looking perplexed.

JASON watches from the archway into the living room.

JASON

Don’t leave. Don’t you fucking leave Emily alone with that evil bitch. Not again.

JASON’S DOPPELGANGER

I’ll be as quick as possible, Zo’.

JASON’S DOPPELGANGER walks back into the living room.

INT. LIVING ROOM, JASON’S HOUSE – DAY

EMILY

What’s wrong with mummy?

JASON’S DOPPELGANGER leans over and picks up the scattered petals from the floor, then kneels down in front of EMILY.

JASON’S DOPPELGANGER

It was a lovely gift. I’ll give it to mummy later, when she’s feeling better.

EMILY

It’s broken now.

JASON’S DOPPELGANGER

I’ll fix it, don’t worry.

EMILY

Okay, Dad. Was it me? Did I do something wrong?

JASON’S DOPPELGANGER

No, Angel. Mummy just needs lots of love at the moment, that’s all. Lots of cuddles from her little miss, too. But it wasn’t anything you did. Don’t ever think that.

JASON

(tearful)

No, not again.

EMILY enthusiastically gets to her feet.

EMILY

Can I come with you?

Without hesitation, JASON’S DOPPELGANGER picks EMILY up.

JASON’S DOPPELGANGER

Okay, Angel. Why not.

EMILY

Can I buy some sweets too, Dad?

JASON’S DOPPELGANGER

(Jokingly)

Well, I don’t know about that. Have you got any money?

EMILY

Dad?

JASON’S DOPPELGANGER

Sure, Angel. We’ll get some sweets.

JASON’S DOPPELGANGER carries EMILY out of the living room.
