ONE:
Closer on GISELLE and DRUM, as DRAKE reaches down and plucks the book from GISELLE’S grasp.

We can see the TITLE of the book – and yes, it’s unquestionably a bodice-ripper, if we are to be so generous in appellation – “Esmerelda Beneath the Red Sail” by “Quill.”

1. GISELLE: “…nor the unmistakable passion smoldering in his gaze. She felt within her, then, an awakening of a most curious sort, one she could not yet name—“

TWO:
GISELLE looking up from beneath the brim of DRUM’S hat. She’s smirking.

DRUM has opened one eye.

2. GISELLE: That’s my personal copy, if you doesn’t mind, sir.

THREE:
Wider, DRAKE with the BOOK in his hand, snapping it closed. He’s grumpy.

GISELLE is teasing him gently, grinning. DRUM is still watching with one eye.

3. GISELLE: If’n you’re in search of a similar tale for yerself, Cap’n’s got several she’d lend you, I’m sure.
4. GISELLE: I can recommend “Wrapped in the Red Sail” if’n you wish your passions suitably stirred.

FOUR:
On DRAKE. Scowling as he hands the book back to GISELLE.

5. DRAKE: Read quiet.
