The Mystery of Sharpe Enterprises

Scene two

Nat: The lift continued to move downwards and Kelly grabbed hold of the handrail and started to try and slow her breathing down.

Kelly: Oh how I hate you sometimes mother!

(Kelly started to close her eyes)

Kelly: Oh how much further?

Susie: Patients!

(Kelly opened her eyes and looked around the empty lift)

Kelly: Mum!

Susie: Yes it's me.

Kelly: Where are you?

(Kelly saw a small a small camera in one corner of the lift)

Susie: At my desk, waiting for you.

(Kelly looks back at the lift doors)

Kelly: How far down does this lift go?

Susie: 30ft!

(Kelly closes her eyes tightly shut again)

Kelly: Feels more like 50ft.

(Kelly heard her mother giggling and starts to look angry)

Kelly: Not funny mother; you know I hate going underground.

Susie: That's why I didn't tell you.

(Kelly slowly opens her eyes and looks up at the camera)

Kelly: I'm so not working underground.

(Just then the lift stopped)

Kelly: Oh at long last!

(The lift doors slowly opened up and Kelly grazed out to see what looked like another reception area)

Susie: So what do you think?

(Kelly looked over at a mother who was behind the desk smiling at her)

Kelly: Are we really underground?

(Kelly slowly walked out the lift and over to her mother's desk)

Susie: Hard to believe isn't it?

(Kelly grazed over at the windows and started to approach one of them)

Kelly: Looks like we're 30ft up not down.

(Susie got up and approached her daughter at the window)

Susie: Yeah it may look like a real window, but it's not.

(Susie tries to open one of the windows)

Susie: See what I mean….Not even the windows open.

Kelly: It still looks pretty cool.

Susie: Mr Sharpe prefers it that way.

(Kelly looks at her mother)

Kelly: Mr Sharpe works down here?

(Susie nods her head)

Kelly: But why underground, why not at the top of the building?

Mr Sharpe: You ask a lot of questions for someone so young.

(Kelly turns around quite quickly to see a man standing in the doorway of another door as Susie steps up besides Kelly)

Susie: Mr Sharpe, let me introduce my daughter Kelly.

(Kelly raises her eyebrows and smiled as Susie looks across at her)

Susie: Aren't you going to say hello?

(Susie gives her a nudge with her arm and Kelly walks over to Mr Sharpe and stood in front of him)

Kelly: Pleased to meet you Mr Sharpe.

Mr Sharpe: So your 16?

(Mr Sharpe lends back against the doorframe and crosses his arms over his chest)

Kelly: Yes I am.

(Kelly continues to smile at Mr Sharpe)

Mr Sharpe: Well I hope you like hard work.

Kelly: I'll do the best I can.

(Mr Sharpe slowly moves his eyes down Kelly's body and back up again)

Mr Sharpe: Well we'll see about that won't we?

(Mr Sharpe walks backwards her few steps and slowly started to close the door)

Mr Sharpe: Oh one word of advice for you… You are never to come past these doors.

Kelly: Why what's back there?

(Kelly starts to stand on tiptoes and tries to look over Mr Sharpe's head)

Susie: Kelly!

(Mr Sharpe stared back at Kelly)

Mr Sharpe: Well let's put it this way, you won't live to see the next day.

(Kelly stared back at Mr Sharpe)

Kelly: What's so dangerous that could possible do that?

Mr Sharpe: Me!

(Kelly looks confused)

Kelly: Are you saying what I think your saying?

Mr Sharpe: Wow you catch on fast don't you?

(Kelly starts to giggle)

Mr Sharpe: Oh you think it's funny do you?

Susie: Kelly, come over here, right now!

Kelly: Yes I do actually.

Mr Sharpe: You won't think it's funny after I kill you.

(Kelly stops laughing and looks seriously at Mr Sharpe)

Kelly: You're joking, right.

Mr Sharpe: I never joke about anything.

(Mr Sharpe continued to shut the door)

Kelly: You wouldn't dare.

(Mr Shape opens the door a little to see Kelly had stepped right up to the door)

Mr Sharpe: This isn't a game; I could kill you in an instant.

(Susie walked up to her daughter and turns her around to face the other way)

Susie: I'm sorry about that Mr Sharpe.

(Mr Sharpe looked at Susie and slowly shakes his head)

Kelly: Oh and one thing…

(Kelly turns back around to face Mr Sharpe)

Kelly: …. I should tell you.

(Mr Sharpe grins back at Kelly)

Susie: Kelly, just let it be.

Mr Sharpe: And what would that be Miss Cartwright?

Kelly: I'm not afraid of you.

Mr Sharpe: Is that so!

Kelly: And by the way, the name is Kelly!

(Kelly smiles at Mr Sharpe)

Mr Sharpe: And you're stepping on thin ice young lady.

Kelly: Owww that hurts!

Mr Sharpe: It will do if you over step the line again.

(Mr Sharpe slams the door shut and Susie places her hands on her hips and stares at her daughter)

Susie: What do you think you're doing?

(Kelly looks at her mother)

Kelly: Letting him know he can't walk all over me.

Susie: Well you're in this building; he can do whatever he wants.

Kelly: He may let him walk all over you mother, but he is must certainly not doing that with me.

Susie: I don't want to lose my job over this Kelly. I told him you would work hard for him. Please don't let me down; my job could be on the line here.

Kelly: How can he talk to people like that?

Susie: When you have a big company and a lot of money, you can do just about anything.

Kelly: Leave him with me for two weeks; I'll give him a piece of my mind.

(Kelly smiles at her mother as Susie placed her hands on Kelly's shoulders)

Susie: Promise me you won't do that again.

Kelly: Do what?

Susie: Mr Sharpe will be your boss from Monday, so please just do whatever he says?

Kelly: Mr Sharpe doesn't have a first name.

(Susie let's go off Kelly's shoulders)

Susie: Don't change the subject.

Kelly: I'm only asking…. Oh it doesn't matter.

(Kelly turns around and Susie steps in front of her)

Susie: Promise me Kelly!

Kelly: Okay I promise.

(Kelly moves her hand slowly behind her back and crosses her fingers)

Susie: Good!

(Susie turns around and starts to walk back to her desk)

Kelly: Not!

Susie: What was that?

(Susie continued to walk to her desk)

Kelly: Nothing mother, just mumbling to myself.

Susie: Well stop that and follow me…. I'll show you around.

(Kelly takes one last look back at the door behind her and then turned about to follow her mother)
