Pam and Mendusa

Pam and Mendusa share an apartment on the East side of Everland Under the Sea. Rumor has it Mendusa has never been kissed (maybe because she just can’t quite keep from turning young men into stone). Oh she beautiful, what with her golden cat eyes, translucent fangs and her dreads . . . exquisite . . .still . . .
And Pam Dora . . . she has . . . she has issues. Maybe Pam would throw Mendusa out, but she pays the rent and besides where would Mendusa go? Pam is, after all, kind of a slob and Mendusa doesn’t complain about cleaning up
Picture two in the darkness of the living room, Mendusa and a young man that shall remain un-named.

We hear his voice first, “Why’s it so dark in here?”
She says, “Trust me, you wouldn’t want it any other way.”
“Where’s Pam?”
“She’ll be back in an hour or so . . .”
Silence . . .
He says, “Dreads? Hey, one of those bit me . . .”
“Don’t be a baby, They’re not poisonous”
And wouldn’t you know it, Pam opens the door . . . “What the . . . ?”
Mendusa says, “Don’t turn on the light!”
Click, the light comes on . . . ZZZZzzzit
“Damnit Mendusa! What the fu . . .”
“Great, simply freakin great.”
“How am I going to explain this to his mother . . . ?”
“Pam , he was coming on to me. And don’t blame me, you’re the one that turned on the lights.”
“Gods you are such a bitch.”
“Don’t be mad . . .”
“Mad? Why would I be mad? You’re making out with the only guy who has spoken to me since the Flood and then you turn him into stone . . . Why would I be mad? Gods, look at his expression.”
Mendusa chuckles, “He was looking at you.”
“Very funny, he was just upset that I caught you two . . .”
“What are we going to do?”
“Friends will help you hide. Good friends will help you hide the bodies.” Pam moves to grasp the statued man.
“He’s kinda cute. . .”
“What, you want to leave him here?’
“He kinda adds something to the room . . .”
“I can’t believe we’re having this conversation. Help me, he’s heavy.”
