VIC:

I have a store. Let's go to the store.

They stand up. VIC takes DIANA'S hand. RANDY and SHARON

follow.

Cut to:

INTERIOR:
VIC'S STORE. NIGHT.

VIC leads the others in, turning on lights and slow dance

music (Little Richard singing "Directly from My Heart"). We

move through the store to a far corner, to a model bedroom.

SHARON reaches out to RANDY and pulls him to her. RANDY lets

go of DIANA and dances with SHARON. They dance to be watched.

They are moving toward a bed. DIANA takes VIC'S hand. They

dance. A blues song plays.

RANDY:

Come here. Come here and have a seat.

SHARON:

Come on, let's fool around.

RANDY lifts SHARON into his arms.

SHARON:

Ohh. What a man.

RANDY:

Nice store you got here, Vic. Nice.

SHARON dances slowly with RANDY; they grind into each other,

putting on a show. SHARON and VIC watch each other.

DIANA:

Come on. Show me what you mean by

fun.

VIC:

Unnh-uhh.

SHARON sees this and shakes her head. DIANA goes to RANDY

and SHARON.

SHARON:

Vic likes to watch.

RANDY:

Watch this.

And we stay with Vic's face as the other three fall on the

bed.

Dissolve to:

INTERIOR:
VIC'S STORE. NIGHT.

SHARON, RANDY, and DIANA on a bed. Their sex is a ritual,

and the surprise here is their need. SHARON is the subject.

They finish. They are still for a moment. SHARON gets up. We

watch RANDY watching her.

SHARON sits on the arm of a leather couch, smoking. RANDY

comes over to her. Behind them, Vic begins fucking DIANA.

SHARON looks grim. RANDY studies her.

RANDY:

Was that far enough?

SHARON turns to look at him.

SHARON:

Randy, right?

RANDY:

Hey, you remembered my name.

SHARON:

Hi, Randy.

RANDY:

Was it enough?

SHARON:

That was ... interesting.

The camera pulls back. We hear DIANA as VIC tries to come.
