Int, Gilbert House. Kitchen.
Jeremy sits at the counter reading as Alaric enters.
Alaric: Any eggs left?
Jeremy: Think so.
[Alaric goes to the fridge and piers in.]
Alaric: Whatcha readin?
Jeremy: Some book on Buddhism.
[Alaric pulls out a carton of eggs, and some OJ. He crosses to the counter and sets them down.]
Alaric: Buddhism huh?
Jeremy: Yeah. You know much about it?
Alaric: A little bit.
Jeremy: It’s pretty far out, don’t you think?
[Alaric smiles at this.]
Alaric: I guess so.
Jeremy: Can I ask you a question?
Jeremy: Do you believe in reincarnation?
Alaric: With, or without the ring?
Alaric: Yes I do.
Jeremy: So if you believe in reincarnation without the ring, why do you wear it?
Jeremy: What do you mean, karma?
Alaric: You haven’t gotten to that part yet?
Jeremy: It’s when what you do comes back to you. Good, or Bad.
Alaric: Thats right. And so what do you do when you have bad karma?
Jeremy: I don’t know. What?
Alaric: You have to burn it off.
Jeremy: What do you mean, burn it off?
Alaric: As you learn to become a man, Jeremy; you’ll be faced with increasing challenges. Your ability to meet these challenges with courage and grace determines the rate at which you convert bad karma into good.
Jeremy: So why does it burn?
Alaric: Because courage and grace are always forged in a fire.
[Jeremy takes this in a moment.]
Jeremy: So, you’re saying that ring is your bad Karma?
Alaric: That’s right.
Jeremy: Do Vampires have karma?
Alaric: You bet your ass they do.
Jeremy: How do they burn it off?
Alaric: That’s where I come in.
[There’s a still moment between them.]
Alaric: I want you to think about a question and give me an answer tonight.
Jeremy: What is it?
Alaric: What’s the difference between being Eternal and being Immortal?
Jeremy: I don’t know.
Alaric: Well now you have the day to think about it…
To be continued…..I
