Divisions and Desperations
Written by Sydney Edwards and Alyssa Krehbiel
Akasha starts on stage, winded, taking a moment to recover from a previous fight. Indi bursts in,
Indi: Where’s Tyren?
Akasha: Relax, he’s in custody inside the Citadel.
Indi: He’s what?
Indi: No, no! You were supposed to kill him, not capture him!
Akasha: I never promised to do that. Listen to me-
Akasha: You know I can’t do that.
Indi: I’m not asking.
Fight begins as Indi launches herself towards Akasha.
Akasha: Calm down! Remember, we’re on the same side here!
Indi: He wasn’t supposed to live Akasha! Not after everything he’s done!
Akasha: We need information from him. Like how he infiltrated the Citadel and how he
gathered such a large force to do it.
Indi: I don’t give a shit about how he did it! Tyren took everything from me. You should know
better than anyone why I need him dead.
Akasha: I know, but Indi we have to approach this with a clear head-
Indi: My head is clear.
Akasha: It’s not. It’s clouded with vengeance and rage. We won’t get anywhere with you like this.
Indi: You’re right. We won’t get anywhere.
Fight resumes as Indi attacks again.
Indi: Why are you trying so hard to protect him?
Akasha: Because this is bigger than us!
Akasha: Please, there’s been enough blood spilled today.
Indi: Not the right blood.
Akasha: Look at yourself, you’re losing it.
Indi: I have nothing left to lose.
Akasha: You were my friend. I don’t want to do this.
Indi: Of course, you don’t. You’ve always lacked the spine to do what’s necessary.
Akasha: You’re wrong.
Akasha begins to walk away.
Indi: Am I? You let others fight for you, take the fall. All because you’re too much of a coward to
dirty your own hands. But guess what Akasha, they’re just as bloodstained as the rest of ours.
You’re just like me.
Akasha: No, I’m not!
Akasha: I can’t let you kill him-
Indi: I can’t let him live.
