PAINT THE SILENCE

INT. GRANGER MANSION – LIVING ROOM – NIGHT

Ruston runs his fingers along books on a bookshelf and sees a slew of them on slave history and religion.  Thunder pounds through the old house and the door opens.  LOGAN GRANGER, (26) a tall All-American athletic young guy walks in with a black hoodie sweatshirt thrown over his head.  He pulls it down revealing a brutally handsome, built man. He’s got exotic looks with stunning features and deep green eyes.  Not of this world.

CHARLES (O.S.)
Where the hell you been boy?  We got guests!

Isabelle rushes from the dining room and into the foyer that leads to the living room. Logan doesn’t move, just focuses on Ruston.

ISABELLE
Ruston.  My son Logan.

RUSTON
Hi.

Ruston sets the book down on the chair and walks over with a polite smile.

Ruston puts his hand out.  Logan doesn’t smile, just stares him down and nods.  He turns and walks away into the dining room.  Ruston watches him seeing more in his mind’s eye.

CHARLES (O.S.)
Clean up my plate boy.

RUSTON
(to himself)
You’re fucking kidding me.

Ruston walks into the dining room.  Charles is sitting at the table barking orders at Logan who is complying and doing as he’s told.  Ruston moves in slow.

CHARLES
And take that trash out.  There’s no way I’m going out there in the rain.

Ruston looks at Charles appalled.  The trash rips open in the kitchen.  Charles slams his hand on the table.

CHARLES
Goddamn it!

Ruston jumps and hustles to the trash.  Logan is picking it up and shuffling it back into the bag.

RUSTON
I got this.

CHARLES (O.S.)
Don’t let the guest pick up your mess!

Ruston grabs everything and throws it in the bag.  Logan looks into him, but says nothing.  He’s unaffected by Charles behavior or anything.  Ruston reads his thanks telepathically.

RUSTON
No sweat.  I’ve been known to pick up a piece of trash or two.  Have you met my girlfriend?
