ANNE – ACT TWO: THE ESCAPE
SCENE opens inside Mr. Hands‘ closet. Anne is seated, curled up in a ball, when she hears the knob slowly turn. The door opens, as Sally crawls in towards her friend, her bad leg dragging behind her. In a hushed tone, she tells Anne to stay quiet and they slowly crawl out together. Mr. Hands is passed out on his desk. As soon as the girls get out of the office, they quickly tip-toe through the common areas to the front door. Anne turns to thank her friend and Sally hands her Mr. Westfield’s address. ‚I copied it off the letter on Hands‘ desk while he was sleeping,‘ she says triumphantly. Anne hugs her friend. Sally smiles, reaching into her pocket and retrieving the necklace. ‚Thought you might need this too,‘ she adds. Anne kisses her, before running off the property and into the night.
A car pulls up outside a large estate and Anne steps out, thanking the driver for letting her hitch a ride. It drives off leaving her to take in Mr. Westfield’s mansion for the first time. It’s the biggest, most luxurious house she has ever seen! But, as Anne looks down at her shabby outfit and dirty hands, she has a moment of self-doubt and starts to walk away when a gardener notices her. He calls out, asking who she is and Anne mumbles that she is here to see Ms. Farling. She is the orphan. Another gardener comes around the corner and notices her. He gives the girl a long look before using his intercom to call someone. ‚Right this way,‘ he tells her, as both workers accompany the girl to the front steps.
A butler opens the door. He is very polished and handsome, dressed in a tuxedo. ‚She is the girl that Ms. Farling told us about,‘ one of the gardeners says. The butler dismisses them before turning his eyes to the girl. ‚You are the prettiest orphan I have ever seen!‘ He says. ‚What is your name and how old are you?‘ Anne replies, and the butler extends his hand, inviting her inside.
The Foyer. As the butler starts to explain the layout, Ms. Farling rushes into the room. She is still in her dressing gown and seems surprised that Anne is here alone. ‚Sweetheart,‘ she says. ‚I wasn’t expecting you so soon. Is Hands still here? I have some papers for him to sign.‘ Not wanting to reveal what happened, Anne lies that he dropped her off at the gate but had to leave. Slightly agitated, as if expecting to have more time to prepare for the girl’s arrival, Ms. Farling accepts her story. ‚I see you’ve met Bruno, our butler,‘ she says, placing a warm hand on the butler’s chest. He bows slightly. ‚He will be at your service, morning, noon and night. But, let me show you the rest of the house. We have a lot to do today to get you prepared!‘
In a long tracking shot, the trio walk into the kitchen, where a CHEF is busy whisking in a bowl. She stops and stares at the girl. ‚This is our personal chef, Mrs. Orchard,‘ Ms. Farling says before lowering her voice to a whisper. ‚She is a little eccentric, but her food is delicious, I promise!‘ Anne laughs. They move to the living area, where a beautiful maid is extending herself to dust the tall corners of the room. Her stature is accentuated by a somewhat revealing outfit. ‚This is Hilda, our housekeeper,‘ Ms. Farling says. The maid rushes over and gives Anne a warm hug, kissing her on each cheek. ‚You are so perfect,‘ she says softly. ‚daddy is sure to love you!‘ Anne looks up at Ms. Farling in confusion and the assistant grips her shoulders tightly. ‚That’s just what we call Mr. Westfield in this house,‘ she tells Anne. ‚He is such a role model that I like to think of him as a father figure. It is very important to treat him with respect.‘ They keep walking, with the maid joining the group. Ms. Farling and the staff knowingly exchange glances, as Anne walks ahead of them innocently. They pass a darkened wing of the house, where a GAURD is standing watch. ‚Who is that?‘ Anne whispers. Ms. Farling quickens her pace, explaining that this is daddy’s office. He is inside right now, having a very important meeting and cannot be disturbed. That’s why he has protection. Anne looks at the guard nervously. ‚Come quickly,‘ Ms. Farling says. ‚You are supposed to be a surprise for daddy … and I don’t want to ruin it.‘ They turn a corner and spot another well-dressed man. ‚This is Michael, our driver,‘ Ms. Farling continues. ‚He will take you wherever you wish to go. We have 12 different cars on the property.‘ Anne says hello shyly while the handsome driver kisses her hand and introduces himself. He joins them, and they move the tour upstairs.
The second floor. As Ms. Farling explains the house’s various features and rules, Anne looks around at the staff following them. They are all smiling at her intently. It makes her a little uncomfortable, mostly because she has never had so much attention focused on herself. She sticks close to Ms. Farling and asks the assistant if she really thinks that Mr. Westfield can help her find her real parents. The assistant stops and curtly reminds the orphan that, in this house, he is not Mr. Westfield. He is daddy. She must not forget that. It is a very important rule. Anne apologies but Ms. Farling cuts her off. ‚There is no need to apologize, my darling. We are all here to help make sure you give off the best possible first impression tonight when you meet him,‘ she says. ‚I know he is going to be so surprised when he sees that I’ve brought him a beautiful girl!‘ Anne looks down at herself again and mutters about not feeling very beautiful. Ms. Farling assures her that it is their responsibility during her stay to ensure she is treated like a princess. Anne should enjoy all the spoils of being at home here — just as if she were daddy’s real daughter. ‚And then we can look for my parents?‘ Anne asks. Ms. Farling nods, adding that if anyone has the right connections to find them, it will be daddy. The staff eye each other and the girl lustfully.
‚What would you like us to do first, Anne?‘ the butler asks, putting his arms on Anne’s waist. ‚We will do anything you want!‘ adds the driver. Ms. Farling smiles as the maid grabs Anne’s shoulders from behind. ‚How about we get you cleaned up?‘ She says, whispering in her ear. Anne gulps before slowly nodding and telling them that a shower would be nice. ‚I think you’re really going to like it here!‘ The assistant says warmly, leaning in to kiss the young orphan on the cheek.
The bathroom. Anne is naked in the shower, being washed by Ms. Farling and the maid who have taken off their clothes to join her. She seems very awkward at their touch but is trying to fit in — she wants to like it here. She needs to like it here. As they sensually scrub her body, Ms. Farling tells the orphan all about their boss. He is such a high-profile, busy man that he has never settled down or had a family of his own. When she began planning this charity event, she knew it was a perfect opportunity to change that. She wants to give daddy a feeling he’s never been able to enjoy, despite his success. Ms. Farling seems so proud of her plan that Anne doesn’t want to bring up her parents again. It might seem rude. But, that’s all that she can think about. The women continue to stress the point of making a good first impression to daddy, so much so that Anne becomes very visibly anxious about it. The maid asks the orphan if she is OK and, after some coaxing, Anne admits that she’s nervous to meet him. She’s never been given so much before and she doesn’t want to screw it up. Ms. Farling starts to steer the conversation towards how she and her staff deal with stress. They help each other relax, in every possible way. Taking a cue from the assistant, the maid chimes in to ask if Anne has ever enjoyed an orgasm. Anne confesses that she’s never had one — she won’t admit what happened with Mr. Hands, but she alludes to having had a past negative experience. The women are surprised and insist that they help her — especially if she wants to be relaxed for this evening. After a bit of coaxing, Anne agrees. She trusts the women. The maid and Ms. Farling work together to make Anne cum before leading the overwhelmed girl out of the shower where the butler and driver are waiting. They dry her off and then ask permission to make her orgasm too. Anne hesitates again but Ms. Farling reiterates the importance of what they are doing. They are only trying to help her prepare for tonight. ‚And you really think that daddy will be able to find my parents?‘ Ms. Farling says yes, and Anne ultimately agrees. She has come so far already, she can’t stop now. The staff take turns having sex and pleasuring her.
After they have finished, Ms. Farling dismisses the others, so she can help get Anne dressed. Excited at the prospect of giving daddy his surprise, the assistant proclaims she has the perfect outfit set aside!
The dining room. Anne sits at a beautifully appointed table, wearing a stylish red dress and looking like the opposite of the orphan who arrived just hours earlier. The entire staff is also seated but the head of the table remains empty. After a long, awkward pause, daddy bursts into the room flagged by his guard. He is on his phone with his lawyer, clearly in a very bad mood, and pays no attention to the girl sitting beside him. The staff look at each other anxiously. Slamming his phone down, he demands to know what’s being served as the CHEF ladles some soup into his bowl. ‚Roasted carrot with crème fraiche,‘ she replies. daddy makes a face and starts eating, as he tells Ms. Farling to go over his itinerary for the rest of the week. His assistant pulls out her tablet and starts to break it down for him while Anne twitches in anticipation. At a certain point, daddy looks over and notices her. ‚Who the hell is this kid?‘ He asks his assistant gruffly. Ms. Farling reminds him about the upcoming charity event he’s hosting and how she was tasked to bring in an orphan to spend the week with him as part of the publicity campaign. daddy looks Anne up and down before replying that he thought she was going to get a child. ‚How old are you?‘ He asks. Anne replies meekly that she is eighteen. daddy grunts and tells Ms. Farling that a teenage girl is the last thing he needs in his house. Ms. Farling protests, advising him that it would be a nice idea to have him spend some quality time with a nice young woman, since he isn’t married and never had a daughter. He stares at her coldly without responding. ‚Besides …‘ she nervously adds. ‚It will look very good for your image, daddy. It will show the public a softer side to the Westfield empire and, hopefully, downplay some of the recent rumors…‘ daddy mulls this over before finally agreeing and asking for the next course.
While everyone eats their meal, Ms. Farling keeps encouraging Anne to talk about herself. She tells the businessman all about her life in the orphanage, the other girls she grew up with, and how happy she is to have been chosen to represent him as his daughter for the week. daddy remains cold despite all her efforts to charm him and the staff are so preoccupied with making sure the pair get along that is causes a lot of tension around the table. Finally, daddy excuses himself for bed and leaves abruptly, accompanied by his guard. Anne is crestfallen.
‚He hates me, I just know it!‘ She says pitifully. ‚Please don’t send me back Ms. Farling … I’ll do anything to stay!‘ Hugging her tightly as the rest of the staff solemnly clear the table, Ms. Farling tells her not to give up. She will make sure Anne is not sent back to the orphanage. But, she needs her to be a little more convincing. daddy has a hard shell, but he is soft on the inside. All he needs is to feel like he is in control of the situation. That’s how he runs his business. Anne asks what else she can do and, helping her to her feet, Ms. Farling suggests she go and say goodnight to the man – alone. If she can prove what a good girl she is, daddy will surely want her to stay and help her find her parents. As Ms. Farling accompanies Anne to the stairwell, she reminds her of how good the staff made her feel earlier. Anne nods nervously. ‚That is how daddy likes it too,‘ the assistant adds. ‚Remember that!‘ They walk to daddy’s door, where the guard is standing. Ms. Farling tells him that Anne is going in to say goodnight and he lets her pass. She glances back at Ms. Farling, who shoos her in with a final look of encouragement. When she disappears, the assistant turns back to the guard and tells him to take a break. She needs to monitor this herself. The guard flashes her a quick smile and speaks for the first time. ‚Bringing him a teenage orphan … that’s low even for you, Farling!‘ he jokes. ‚Yes,‘ Ms. Farling replies curtly ‚I know. But anything is better than the hookers at this point!‘ The guard walks off, leaving the assistant alone at the door.
daddy’s bedroom. The man is under the covers, in his pajamas, and on his phone when Anne enters timidly. ‚What are you doing in here?‘ He demands, shocked to see her. ‚Nobody comes in my room without my permission!‘ Anne, putting on a brave face, marches over to the bed and tells him that she wants to say goodnight. They may have got off to the wrong foot downstairs, but she wants him to know that she is the best possible orphan for his charity event. daddy is not amused. He asks if his assistant put her up to this. ‚That woman is always meddling in my private affairs,‘ he grumbles. Anne bites her lip and sits down on the bed boldly. ‚Now listen daddy,‘ she says. ‚You are rich, powerful, and very intimidating. When I walked into your house today, I knew I had walked in to somewhere special. And I’m going to be the greatest daughter you’ve ever dreamed of — even if it is only for pretend!‘ daddy cuts Anne off and gets right into her face. ‚I don’t need a daughter,‘ he replies. ‚I just need a photo op!‘ Anne shrinks back. She mumbles something about being a good girl. daddy laughs. ‚When I want a girl, I hire one. I don’t want to be your fucking parent!‘ He barks, turning back to his phone. ‚Now get out of here before I call security.‘
Anne slowly gets off the bed and starts towards the door, crying. She knows that daddy is the key to her future, to finding her real parents. If she leaves now, she leaves with nothing. Like Ms. Farling said, she just needs to convince him. Something inside her snaps and Anne spins around. ‚You’re wrong!‘ she screams, storming back to his bedside. ‚You do need someone to love. Not someone you have to pay for; someone who will worship you and respect you!‘ She breaks down before him, twitching in her red dress. ‚I have spent eighteen years searching for my parents. They abandoned me. But you won’t!‘ daddy doesn’t know what to do. He tells the frazzled girl to away from him. She’s a god-damn kid, what will the press think? Anne starts to cry in a panic. ‚They will think I am going to be your new daughter. I promise to be a good girl for you. I promise you will come to love me … if you just give it a chance. I will do anything you ask, daddy! BUT I’M NOT LEAVING THIS ROOM!‘ She starts to climb on the bed towards him as he shrinks back, yelling for Ms. Farling. ‚She only wants what’s best for you too,‘ Anne continues pleading. ‚Just give me a try, daddy… I need your help!‘ daddy gets very angry and leaps out of bed to physically escort Anne out. She kicks and screams as he struggles to carry her to the door. In desperation, she starts to kiss and grab at him too. They struggle before he throws her back on the bed. ‚Are you making a pass at me, little girl?‘ He growls, towering over her. ‚Because I will tear you up!‘ Not knowing what to do, the tear-streaked orphan tells him yes, if that’s what he wants. He can do whatever he wants to her if he will just let her stay and help her afterwards. Her constant advances awaken something inside of daddy and the icy, distant man rips her dress off. Staring down at the naked girl, he reveals himself and tells her to suck it. It’s been days since he could hire a girl anyway.
The harder he pounds; the more Anne calls him daddy and begs for him to accept her. She slowly breaks the man down. His hate fucking slowly turns into passionate sex, with the pair kissing and acting lovingly by the time daddy cums inside of her. Their sex is INTERCUT with shots of Ms. Farling watching and masturbating from outside the door.
After they have finished, Anne kisses daddy and they share a tender moment. Ms. Farling enters and, giving her boss a knowing look, informs Anne that it is time for bed. ‚You see, I always have your best interests at heart, don’t I daddy?‘ She says and leads the naked orphan out of the room, holding her hand. The man falls back on his bed and a smile crosses his face.
Anne’s new bedroom. Ms. Farling tucks Anne in and kisses her on the forehead, telling her how proud she is of everything the young orphan did to prove herself. She knew Anne was special! Once alone, Anne says a short prayer to her parents. She tells them that she is doing everything she can so that one day they will be reunited. Hopefully. She falls asleep happily, holding on to her broken heart.
