Jack and Kenneth
Jack and Kenneth stare at each other in a room. Jack looks at his father-in-law with confusion as to why he dislikes his own son-in-law so much. Kenneth still can't stand the sight of Jack.
"I can't believe Kazmina married without telling me," Kenneth said, standing next to a wall with a look of disdain on his face. "Also, I can't believe she married a loser like you."
Jack, starting to look up at him more and then takes off his knight helmet. "Mr. Walsh, Kenneth, I love your daughter so much and I can't imagine my life without her. I had never felt this way about anybody and I can't imagine being with anybody else except her. I just want you to accept that we love each other."
"Forget this, fatty!" Kenneth yelled. "My Kazmina had a much better man before you came along. She was with this guy who was an all around athlete. Really good shape, treated her right, I don't know why they broke up. She would have been better off with him than with your pansy ass!"
"Who, Justin?" Jack replied. "Kazmina told me a lot about him. She told him that he treated her like shit for the most part, cheated on her, abused her. Yes, they were together for a long time and they were together in high school and in their college years, but she even told me that she hated being with him."
"I know Kazmina well," said Kenneth, with a look of disbelief. "She seemed very happy with Justin. Shit, 'son-in-law,' Justin even talked to me about the concept of marriage. Me and that kid got along well."
"Maybe you two did," Jack said, not backing down from this argument. "But I had gotten to know Kazmina for the years that we've been together. She hated being abused and cheated on, before she broke up with him, that is when I met the most beautiful woman that I have ever seen. My wife, your daughter, she thought that my nerdiness was the cutest thing ever. She dumped Justin like the trash that he is."
"Okay, I can see where you are coming from now," Kenneth said, starting to calm down a bit. "But she still could have picked someone a lot better than you. What kind of loser wears a knight helmet?"
"I just so happen to be a fan of video games," Jack says, knowing that it's not good enough to try to get Kenneth to accept him. "I happen to also be a fan of Capcom video games and this helmet has to do with Arthur, the main character of 'Ghosts and Goblins' and it's collector's item."
Kenneth still isn't changing his views on Jack. "Whatever, geek. I wanted my baby to be happy and I want to be happy for her, but I am not happy for her because she deserves way better than you, you pansy. You didn't even bother trying to fight off those zombies in the Palisades Mall. I was doing most of the fight before that one guy came in and saved us. That boy Chuck seems like more of a man than you."
Jack can't believe what he's hearing and sighs in derision. "Don't bring that guy in this. Chuck saved you, too. He even gave me something to defend myself with. I still held my own on our way here. You'd be dead too if it wasn't for him."
"At least I tried fighting them zombies," Kenneth responded. "I am an old man, I've seen a lot of things and I have lived a full life and I wasn't afraid to fight all them zombies and what did you do? Cower in the corner like the pantywaist that you are."
Though Jack is being verbally abused by his father-in-law, he is taking all of it very well. "I was scared. It's only natural to be scared. I'm sure that a lot of the other people I see around here were scared of the zombies. Like I said, I still fought some of the zombies on our way here."
Jack was not giving up trying to get Kenneth to warm up to him a little. Kenneth just sits on a chair with his arms crossed, still trying to fight off Jack's attempts to try to bond with him or to try to get him to stop disliking him.
Jack added, "Look, I know that you said that you don't care if you die and all that stuff, but Kazmina would be crushed if you died. She loves you very much. She knows that you don't like me. I know that you don't like me, but all I want from you is to accept that we love each other. We don't have to be friends, you don't have to like me, but what I really want is for you to have some kind of respect for me. I have a lot of respect for you. I have never said anything bad about you. Your wife loves me, I know that. She thinks that I am good for Kazmina and she had never seen her daughter so happy after months of us dating each other."
Kenneth is trying to hold back any kind of response because he still doesn't want to listen to Jack.
"Forget this," Jack said, tired of trying to reason with Kenneth. "I tried my best. I'm going to find someone to play poker with. I think I noticed that some poker pros are here as well. Maybe I can try playing with them to help get my mind off of this."
As Jack walks out of the door to the room that both he and Kenneth are in, Kenneth looks up and starts thinking about what his son-in-law was saying.
