Jason arrives at his workplace.
He opens his briefcase and takes out a couple of folders, his glasses and a pen. The Pen.
He leaves his office and goes to a business meeting.
Petey, the head-security´s dog, enters the room and goes straight for the plant next to the window.
As he lifts his leg, about to pee on the plant…
Pen: I wouldn´t do that if I were you.
Petey: who said that?
Pen: I did.
Petey: God, is that you?
Pen: yes my child. It is I, the mighty God and I am telling not to pee on that plant!
Petey: Has anyone ever told you, you have kind of a girly voice?
Pen: I do not!
Petey: yeah, you kind of do. So, where are you hiding?
Pen: I´m not hiding, I´m right here.
Petey: Here where?
Pen: Right here on the desk!
Petey looks at the desk but doesn´t see anyone.
Petey: why are you hiding under the desk?
Pen: I´m not hiding. I´m right here.
Petey: are you invisible or something?
Pen: are you blind?
Petey: No… maybe. I don´t know. All I know is that I can hear you but I can´t see you.
Pen: Look at the desk.
Petey: I´m looking.
Pen: what do you see?
Petey: Books, papers, a computer, an odd looking Pen…
Pen: you´re the one who´s odd!
Petey: Ha! I got it!
Pen: About time!
Petey: you´re on the phone!
Petey: the computer?
Petey: cell phone?
Pen: Oh good lord! No! Right here! The Pen.
Petey: what about the pen?
Pen: I´m Pen.
Petey: your name is Pen?
Petey: Is that short for Penny?
Pen: Agh! No!
Petey: I don´t understand.
Pen: Don´t understand what?
Petey: you´re an invisible creature named Pen. Are you some kind of lost soul? Do you have some unfinished business here?
Pen: Oh for heaven´s sake!
Petey: what? Did I say something wrong?
Pen: See the Pen on the desk.
Petey jumps on the chair near the desk and looks straight at the Pen.
Petey, the dog falls backwards and of the chair landing on his face on the floor.
Petey: what the…?
Petey jumps on the chair once more and looks straight at the Pen.
Petey: what are you?
Pen: a Pen…
Petey: I can see that you´re a pen!
Pen: then… why did you ask?
Petey: am I hallucinating?
Pen (under its “breath”): probably.
Petey: you´re a Pen!
Petey: and you´re alive!
Pen: Alive, no. Possessed!
Petey: possessed by what?
Pen: It depends on the day.
Petey: why are you here?
Pen: Jason brought me.
Pen: I´m a Pen. He needed a pen.
Petey: does he know?
Pen: know what?
Petey: that you´re possessed.
Petey: so when he leaves, he´s going to take you with him, right?
Pen: Most likely, yes.
Petey: oh thank God!
Petey: No reason, no reason what so ever.
Petey starts to walk backwards, forgetting he´s on a chair. He falls to the floor, again.
Pen: are you okay?
Petey: yeah, I´m good. Look it was nice meeting you and all but ah… I have to go.
Petey: how do you know my name?
Pen: I know everything.
Petey: okay. Good to know. I have to go.
Pen: are you going to leave me here all alone?
Petey: Oh, yeah. Sorry about that. Official dog police business.
Petey keeps walking backwards.
Petey (screaming): Ah!
Petey runs out of the room.
Pen: HA! HA! HA! That was fun! Francis has been such a bore lately. I don´t even bother him anymore.
Petey comes back and jumps on the chair and then on the table.
Pen: what´re you doing?
Petey: It´s okay. I got you.
Petey walks over to the pen, lifts his leg and starts to pee on it.
Pen (screaming): You stupid mutt! What the hell! Why did you just do that?
Petey: holy water. Now rest in peace you… you demonic soul!
Pen: what the freck? Holy water?
Petey: yeah. I went next door, to Mary´s office. She always has a flask with holy water on her. Tastes good, I had gone there earlier and drank some. Went there again and drank some more. And now you´ve been cleansed. You´re exorcised. You may rest in peace.
Pen: You ret…
Jason comes into the room.
Jason: what the hell Petey?
Petey: Oh Mr. Jason I was just…
Jason: did you just pee on my desk?
Petey: It appears so. I can explain. You´ll thank me latter.
Jason: you dam dog!
Petey: Oh dear! Time to go!
Petey runs out of the room before Jason has the chance to catch him.
Jason: what is it with animals and this pen?
Pen: rot in hell, you stupid mutt!
Jason nears his desk and finds the pen on his desk, covered in pee.
Jason: Ah hell!
Jason grabs some tissues and picks up the pen.
Jason: maybe it smells like Francis.
He sys in annoyance.
Jason (cont.): if you weren´t Francis favorite toy, I´d toss you.
