THE LAST HOLLYWOOD VIKING (scene 10) — Sistah and the “muchkins” feed our HERO

Carrying on from scene 4

EXT.  DUSK.  HOLLYWOOD SIGN.  St. FRANCES’ CAMP

Sistah begins to riffle through some boxes for pots and pans.

Mistah can you fetch me some of that firewood

HERO

Hungover and wobbly, smoothes his new Viking outfit, which looks a lot like this:

His steed is tied to a clump of chapparral.  He wanders off to collect bits of wood for Sistah.

Sistah pulls out a collection of battered tin and enamel cups, some plates, and her few cooking implements.  She has an old grate placed over a small firering for her stove.

The muchkins begin to arrive one by one.  Each has something to contribute to the meal.  They are smiling shyly at Sistah as they drop off the bounty they scavenged.

SISTAH

Land sake’s, what have we here?

HERO

Arrives at edge of camp and drops the sticks in surprise when he sees the meal.  The kid’s have brought cans of things and whatever they could find — all this is in a heap before Sistah.  They stand close to her, watching him, heads cocked.

SISTAH

Fetch me some of those blankets my muchkins

They spread the blankets out on the ground, and Sistah gets the fire going as she empties a little bit of everything into a large pot.  She’s making a kind of mystery stew…

C’mon Viking, sit down.

You look like you’ve been through the mill.

HERO

Moves near the little fire and takes his place on the blanket.

I guess so.

Smiles at Sistah and the kids.

MUCHKIN

Mistah can I pet your horse

HERO

Sure

The kids move off to where the horse is tied, amazed by the mane and tail.  Sistah slowly stirs the pot, smiling at him.  Hee begins to sniff the air.  It smells good.
