LESBIAN MOM USES STEP-SON AS BAIT TO SEDUCE COLLEGE GIRL
SCENE opens on an elegant couple as they are driven home one afternoon from a speaking engagement. Senator Gregory, the husband, is on the phone with one of his constituents discussing the event, a 'family comes first' charity put on by one of their biggest donors. As he speaks, Mrs. Gregory stares out the window. She hates having to accompany her husband to such conservative affairs. It is so irritating. But, they live a privileged life and, with her husband away so much, Mrs. Gregory has a lot of freedom to explore her own interests.
The Senator ends his call and asks the driver how long it will take to get to the airport. 'I'm expecting my son to be home when we return,' he says proudly. Mrs. Gregory smirks. 'Oh, I didn't realize William was coming down. It's a shame you'll only see him for the weekend before you fly out again.' Squeezing his wife's knee, the Senator says not to worry. The boy's going to stay all week, so she'll have plenty of time to catch up with her step-son too. Her smile slowly fading, Mrs. Gregory looks back out the window.
CUT TO TITLE PLATE
The camera pans across a well-appointed bathroom. Mrs. Gregory sits on the edge of the tub, secretly looking at candid photos of girls on her phone. Her hand slips between her dressing gown as she gets excited, but she is rudely interrupted by her husband calling her from down the stairs. He wants her to come and say goodbye. The woman closes the phone in a huff and exits.
The Senator is waiting by the door. He tries to kiss his wife, but she makes an excuse and hugs him instead. Meanwhile, William strolls into the room, still in pajamas and eating cereal. He says bye to his dad and plops on the couch, ignoring his step-mother. Mrs. Gregory, aware of the slight, urges her husband to leave before he misses his flight. She kisses his cheek and pushes him out of the door, closing it in a silent victory. She hates having to touch him.
The woman walks into the living room and stares at her step-son in silence. He continues to ignore her. You can feel the tension growing between them. Finally, Mrs. Gregory takes the bowl from his hands. 'You haven't been answering my emails,' she says coldly. He looks up at her in disgust. 'And you stopped funding my account,' he replies, taking the bowl back and continuing to eat. Exasperated, the woman sits down and tries to reason with her step-son. 'I thought our agreement was clear,' she continues. 'I pay you for every qualified lead you deliver to me!' William shakes his head. 'You're a psycho,' he says standing up. 'Just come out of the closet already, mom! I don't want to be your fucking wingman anymore!' In a tracking shot, he walks to the kitchen while his mother follows desperately. She pleads with him to not be difficult. He knows what kind of situation she is in with his father and the public. If anyone found out about her hobbies, it would be the end of his political career. And their wealth. And their status. And his trust fund, which she has been generously topping up for years! William turns to cut her off. 'Your hobbies?' He argues. 'You mean, bribing me to bring girls over so you can take advantage of them?' Mrs. Gregory purses her lips, trying to remain calm. 'I mean, helping your mother out.' She whimpers. William sees his mother start to crack and backs down. After all, he does love her. Even though their relationship is highly dysfunctional, the pair still have an emotional bond. Mrs. Gregory is the only mother figure that William has eve
