SCENE opens on a shot of Jenny, an 18-year-old girl, as she leans up against the kitchen counter, arms crossed, while her parents get ready to leave for the day. As they weave around her collecting their things, her father reiterates the house rules: no friends over, no boys over, just a quiet day alone. They will be back before midnight. Jenny rolls her eyes and reminds them that she’s eighteen, fully capable of being left on her own. Her mother hugs her and tells her that she can always call her older brother if she needs something. Jenny rolls her eyes again and mutters ‘step-brother’ under her breath. The parents say goodbye and Jenny watches them leave, a fake smile on her face. As soon as she hears the door close, her smile turns into a smirk and she struts over to the fridge. She leans in and starts pulling out various food items including a cucumber, a bag of carrots, and a pickle jar. She picks each one up and studies them before settling on a carrot. Biting her lip, she collects the rest of the food and walks back to her bedroom, closing the door.
Gary, Jenny’s older step-brother, has a cocktail with his buddy at a local bar when his phone starts blowing up. It’s Jenny calling. At first, Gary ignores her but when she calls repeatedly, he excuses himself and answers the phone. She is hysterical, begging her brother to come to the family house because of an emergency. Gary tries to calm her down and understand what’s happening, but the sister is in such a panic that he agrees to come right away, believing there has been a serious accident. He gets off the phone and rushes out of the bar.
CUT to Gary running into the family house. Everything is quiet. He yells for his sister and, after a moment, hears her moaning from the back bedroom. The worried brother storms down the hall and bursts open the door, to discover his younger step-sister squatting in a corner … wearing only a bra. A carrot is sticking out of her ass. Shocked, he covers his eyes and demands to know what’s going on. Jenny begs him to close the door and come in. She doesn’t want anyone to know what’s happened, but she needs his help. Gary, his hand still over his eyes, asks where their parents are. Jenny explains that they have gone out for the day and left her in charge of the house. She thought it might be fun to … experiment … while she was alone. Gary slowly removes his hands from his face and stares at his sister, as she hobbles and crawls towards him. ‘What the hell did you do, sis?’ He asks. She explains that she wanted to know what anal sex felt like because all her friends are doing it. She thought if she tried to practice herself then she wouldn’t be scared for the real thing. She heard about girls using cucumbers, so she tried to work herself up to that … but now they’re stuck. Gary looks horrified and awkward, trying to avoid looking at his sister in such a state. There is a long silence. ‘What exactly did you put up inside of you?’ He mutters. Jenny buckles over and groans, begging her step-brother to just help her get them out and then he can lecture her afterwards.
