Homesick for The Valley of The Damned

Home Sick for The Valley of The Dammed

A Poem by Brett Butler

All was quiet as cars and buses came to a halt. People froze and turned into statues.

There was no wind, and far in the distance, very far, two month's three days away, he

faintly heard the oriental flute and gypsy tambourine.

He pictured the cool zombies dancing around the golden horse, laughing at the straights

that would hide their children behind paper shields. He was sixteen when they pushed

him into The Valley of The Dammed and periodically his mother and his distant

telephone father threw him a rope of thorns. Then they went off cleaning their fingernails,

always saying, "Why doesn't he come home?"

He died two times only to be reborn. He could not die again. He walked on his

fingernails, two months, three days, to the land of the straights. He was only to find that

everyone was away on vacation, and his mother had forgotten his name. He went in

sixteen, spent a thousand years and came out three quarters past eighteen.

Now he is nineteen, wishing he was twelve. Three years means so much. He knew

pawing and lust, and stood naked for a golden vein.

He did not know love. Is their love?

Where are my three years?

The straights mistrusted him and hid their jewelry out of his sight.

The cool zombies call to him at all hours of the night, and he is so incredibly alone.

Is their no love?

No love at all...

A Webisode Script

Webisode Script Synopsis: The Star Football Player has a big secret.

His girlfriend wants to stay Queen Bee at Clarkstown North High School.

She will do anything to keep the student body from finding out what is

really going on in the boy's locker room. This time she may have been

out-smarted and the secret could be exposed.


INT. CLARKSTOWN NORTH HIGH SCHOOL, HALLWAY - DAY

Lucas (17) stands at his locker in his football jersey. He

has a wooden rosary around his neck with a silver cross on

it. He has a tattoo on his right arm of Jesus on the cross.

Nadine (17) leans against the locker across from him in her

cheerleader outfit. She has a gold cross around her neck.

NADINE

Where were you last night, babe?

You know I needed to talk to you.

Lucas closes his locker.

LUCAS

You know my folks wouldn’t let me

out. My mother did one of her home

Bible study classes for my brothers

and me.

NADINE

I really need to talk to you.

LUCAS

We can hang later, babe. What did

you think of my winning run?

NADINE

That’s why everyone loves you.

Lucas looks at his watch.

LUCAS

I’ve got to motor, babe. Some of

the guys want to talk to me about

the upcoming game. We’ve got to

keep the winning streak going.

Lucas kisses Nadine.

Lucas runs off.

NADINE

We really need to talk. I went to

the doctor and...

LUCAS

Not now. I’ve got to go.

Nadine puts her right hand on her stomach.

FADE OUT.

INT. BOY’S LOCKER ROOM - DAY

Lucas enters and runs towards the back to see Tommy who sits

on the bench.

Tommy pushes the send button on his phone and stands. Tommy

puts the phone in his pocket. Tommy is a lean young man with

thick blond hair.

LUCAS

Tom-tom I missed you. You look hot!

The two boys kiss. Lucas pulls Tommy's body close to his and

squeezes him. Lucas’ hand grabs Tommy's crotch. Tommy pushes

Lucas away.

TOMMY

Are you crazy? This is dangerous.

LUCAS

You're all I think about. I jerked

off reliving what we did last night

in the shower. Speaking of showers.

Lucas points to the shower room.

TOMMY

Are you fucking nuts? We can get

caught.

LUCAS

No way dude, there’s no gym class

until the third period.

Lucas pushes Tommy up against the lockers as they kiss. Tommy

pulls Lucas’ shirt off and kisses his neck. Lucas undoes

Tommy's pants. Tommy pushes Lucas away from him.

TOMMY

No, this can’t happen again, you

have a fucking girlfriend.

LUCAS

So, she doesn’t suspect anything.

You don’t know her anyway.

Tommy has a confused look on his face.

TOMMY

You’re gay like me. Why can’t you

admit you’re gay?


3.

Lucas is angry as he shoves Tommy into the lockers. Tommy

falls to the floor. Lucas balls up his fist and punches the

lockers.

LUCAS

I am not gay. I am nothing like

you. I like pussy too. Say that

again and I will beat the shit out

of you.

Lucas helps Tommy up.

Lucas smiles.

TOMMY

Last night you told me that you

loved me.

LUCAS

I do love you. You don’t

understand.

Tommy walks over to Lucas and hugs him.

LUCAS (CONT’D)

I have an image to protect.

Tommy steps backwards. Tommy has a confused look on his face.

TOMMY

So where do I fit in?

LUCAS

We can hook up on the side, like

last week and last night. No one

has to know our little secret.

Tommy runs his right hand through his blond hair.

TOMMY

You mean your dirty little secret.

Lucas shakes his head no.

TOMMY (CONT’D)

I am your little fuck buddy on the

side. When Nadine won’t blow you,

you coming running to me.

Lucas’ face turns red.


4.

LUCAS

Don’t mention her name! You’re not

my fuck buddy. I never loved

someone like you.

TOMMY

Why? You don’t want to think about

what this would do to her?

Lucas grabs Tommy and starts to kiss him.

LUCAS

We are wasting time. I am so horny.

Lucas pulls Tommy’s shirt off. Tommy undoes Lucas’ pants.

Tommy kisses Lucas’ chest and then sucks his nipples.

NADINE

He doesn’t like his nipples sucked,

just his cock.

Tommy is in horror as Nadine stands there with her hands on

her hips. Tommy picks up his shirt and puts it on.

NADINE (CONT’D)

I warned you about this happening

again.

Lucas looks down at the grey cement floor.

TOMMY

Again? What the fuck does that

mean?

NADINE

You think you’re the first boy I

caught him with.

Lucas looks at Nadine. Tommy looks at Lucas.

TOMMY

You told me I was the first.

NADINE

You’re just one of ten boys he’s

stuck his dick into.

LUCAS

SHUT UP BITCH!

TOMMY

You lied to me. There have been

others?


5.

LUCAS

Yes, they meant nothing to me. It

was just sex.

Lucas walks over to Tommy and strokes his cheek. Tommy pulls

away from him.

NADINE

Please! He tells all of them that

line. You’re just a player Lucas;

the last boy was from South High.

LUCAS

Maybe we need to break up then. So

I can do what I want.

NADINE

You do that and I’ll tell Mommy and

Daddy what you really do in the

shower room after the big game.

LUCAS

You wouldn’t.

Nadine laughs with a big smile on her face.

NADINE

I’ve had enough of these boy sluts

of yours.

Tommy stands between Lucas and Nadine.

TOMMY

Are you calling me a slut? He lied.

He used me. I did not go after him.

He made a play for me.

NADINE

Whatever! You queers can’t seem to

keep it in your pants anyway.

You’re all going to hell in the

end.

Nadine walks over to Tommy and spits in his face.

Nadine looks at Lucas.

LUCAS

You jealous little bitch. He’s ten

times better than you ever were.

Tommy wipes the spit from his face.


6.

LUCAS (CONT’D)

If you tell my parents, you know

they’ll send me away to Sheep Hill.

NADINE

Maybe that’s what you need to be

cured. It worked for Ronnie,

remember him?

TOMMY

You’re both fucking crazy. This is

over Lucas. I never would have done

this if I knew about the other

guys.

NADINE

Hello? I am his girlfriend.

TOMMY

No! You both are too fucked up. I

am out of here. You used me like

the others.

NADINE

Before you go.

Nadine points her finger at Tommy.

NADINE (CONT’D)

You must never speak of this. Got

it? You see him and you turn your

queer eyes the other way. Or else!

TOMMY

Or else what?

NADINE

Or else, I will make sure; you get

beaten up every day until

graduation by the football team.

Furthermore, you will become a

social outcast and no one, not even

the freaks, will talk to you. Got

it?

Too late!

What?

TOMMY

NADINE

Lucas buttons his pants and buckles his belt. He then puts

his shirt on.


7.

LUCAS

What do mean? What did you do?

TOMMY

I knew you were playing me. I sent

out a video of us doing it, and a

picture of your dick showing your

face too to the whole student body.

Lucas punches Tommy in the face. Tommy falls to the floor.

Lucas kicks him in the gut. Tommy wipes the blood from his

nose with his hand.

TOMMY (CONT’D)

You feel like a man now!

NADINE

I am going to be sick.

Nadine runs out of the locker room.

LUCAS

Why, did you do this? I will end up

at Sheep Hill.

Tommy stands. He uses a tissue in his pocket to wipe more

blood from his nose.

TOMMY

Because that last guy you fucked

from South High was my exboyfriend.

Lucas falls to his knees. He holds his cross.

TOMMY (CONT’D)

No God is going to save your image

now.

LUCAS

You used me? I loved you.

TOMMY

You only love your precious image.

Nadine walks in and helps Lucas up and hugs him. Lucas sobs.

Nadine looks at Tommy.

NADINE

Get out of here queer boy! I can

fix this, babe. Don’t worry.

Tommy walks out of the locker room. Nadine puts Lucas’ hand

on her stomach. The class bell rings.
