Metatron and a Woman emerge from the church. The Woman stares at Bartleby. Bartleby cowers.
The Woman lays Her hand on his shoulder, helping him to his feet. He stands in awe. She embraces him. He weeps, sorrowfully. She steps back and looks at Metatron. Metatron nods and addresses Jay, Rufus, and Serendipity.
Anyone who isn’t dead or from another plane of existence would do well to cover their ears, right about now.
What the fuck?
Serendipity and Rufus tackle Jay and hug his head, covering his ears as tightly as they can.
The Woman turns back to Bartleby. Her expression hardens. His eyes widen, and then he nods in understanding. He manages a half-smile.
The Woman opens her mouth and emits a loud ear-shattering explosion of noise, in one single note that builds in intensity.
Bartleby’s head explodes, as does his chest. His body drops to his knees and falls forward. The Woman closes her mouth and the noise stops.
METATRON (noticing blood stains on his shirt)
It never ends!
He grabs the Woman’s skirt, spitting on it, and using it to try and clean the stain on his shirt.
The Woman looks distastefully at him, their eyes meet, and he lets go of her skirt.
She looks down at her skirt, sighs with annoyance, thrusting her sprig of flowers over to him, she peels off the garment to reveal a smart silvery jacket and waistcoat, with a pretty white tutu skirt.
She steps away purposefully.
Get off of me! I wanna see what’s up.
What the fuck is this shit?!
(The Woman is taken aback at his outburst)
Who the fuck are you lady?!
(Jay looks to Serendipity and Rufus, who are still prostrated in bowing positions on the ground)
Why the fuck did you hug my head?!
Metatron joins the Woman at her side.
Quite a little mouth on him, isn’t there?
The Woman nods.
What the fuck is this – ‘The Piano’?
Why ain’t this broad talking?!
I believe the answers you seek lie within my companion’s eyes.
The Woman demonstrates by pointing to her eye and pulling down on her cheek.
What the fuck does that mean?!
Has everyone just gone nuts?!
What the fuck happened to that guy’s head?! I want some…
The Woman steps forward and puts her finger to his lips, whispering ‘Shhhh’.
Jay freezes. His expression softens.
The Woman slowly smiles at him, leans forward, and kisses his cheek.
She smiles cheesily at him, and leaves Jay standing there, speechless.
Metatron walks by, patting him on the shoulder, as he dreamily faints to the ground.
