This has been really hard. The main character is a repressed individual. He managed to get more money than he can handle illegally somehow and ends up spending it on an exotic dancer. They get hooked to each other. She has seduced him in the past. He ended up having sex with her and then resented her for doing this to him. As he condemns her, she mocks his moral inhibitions and enjoys doing that. Here she is seducing him and she is doing a classy job of it. However, in this instant an unknown blackmailer is also blackmailing him. The blackmailer has revealed his secret (of the money) to his father (and threatens to reveal it to his boss and then statutory authorities) and has already claimed a third of his money. So, he is stressed out as well. He wants to get out of the situation and doesn't know how to. He cannot talk about it to anyone but the exotic dancer as it is an illegal thing. But she has eyes on him as a prize for herself. If she can just push him over the edge, she can keep him for ever. There are just so many possibilities of doing this and I cannot seem to be able to put my head around it. I want this to be a fun thing. She is making fun of him. He is a prude. He enjoyed himself but cannot accept it. She asks him in double entendres if he didn't enjoy intimacy with her. He tries to talk about his blackmailing situation. But she only partially entertains him on that. One thing I need to establish is that his angry outbursts do not phase her down. She really enjoys them. Ultimately, he falls in despair and reveals the amount of money he earned illegally. Now her interest and attention are doubled. She tells him to figure out the blackmailer and not how he has got caught. The rest of the scene is them figuring out the blackmailer. There will be enough information in his initial rants on the situation to figure who is the blackmailer. She helps him do that. I think the femme fatale playing the detective could be a sexy thing to write. This is a play I am writing. This is like a movie but more dialogue intensive. There will have to be a rhythm in the conversation. She speaks to tantalize him and he speaks his worries about the blackmail and all that is at stake for him. She mocks that as well. Maybe I have too much expectations from myself built here. His character is such that he is extremely reactive to anything that comes his way. He is the rebel archetype. How to approach this? When I think about this scene I cannot even seem to be able to pick up the pen. Do I need a list of sexual double entendres? I think seduction goes into the very heart of a character. What provokes him? What is it that he cannot control a reaction to? He is already very reactive. So, she controls him rather masterfully. How do I show this? Like, she is playing with him. At least, until he reveals the money he is being blackmailed for?
