Moulin Rouge 2: Lady Marmalade

"Can't get you outta my head"

To Velvette and Damien, as well as Christian and Satine, it seemed as if time ceased to exist. There was no beginning to the day and no end tothe night. It was only them. FOr nearly four weeks the two couples lived in this haze. Velvette continued to work at the Moulin, wioth Damien's constant attention. Satine continued to improve, Christian at her side every step.

And he lay in wait for them. He watch Creole Marmalade leave stage, her entourage following and he decided to make his move. He followed her backstage to her dressing room. He knocked, and was given access. Velvette started when she saw him.

"Excuse me, monsuer, but i was expecting someone else. Forgive me."

"No need, my dear, I have a propositon for you." he said oily, just as he had to the Diamond.

He outlined his proposal, giving in details and watched as her face fell drastically.

"My dear Duke, you flatter me with your attention but i am soory, i must decline. I want nothing to do with you." THe fabulous star said evenly to him with a vengeful look in her eye.

"La La La LaLaLaLaLa La La LaLaLaLaLa

La La La LaLaLaLaLa La La LaLaLaLaLa

I just can't get you outta my head

girl, your lovin' is all think about,

I just can't get you outta my head,

girl it's more than I dare to think about"

Damien sang with a lift inhis heart. THe bouquet he held in his hand for Velvette contained her favorite tulips and roses, just waiting to be admired. They were to dine with Satine and Christian tonight. Damien had learned much from the now not so penniless poet, whose book was becoming vastly popular. Love truly was the greatest of all things, Damien thought as he approached Velvette's dressing room door.

"Excuse me? the Duke said 'Could she not have heard me correctly?' he wondered to himself

"I said I can not and will not return your affection. Duke, if you would please leave now, I would appreciate it." she replied coldly with a satifactory gleam in her eye.

"It isn't that easy you foolish girl! Don't you understand?" He seethed to her, walking up to her and looking dead-on into her face, a mere inch or two from it.

"I just can't get you outta my head

girl your lovin is all think about,

I just cant get you outta my head,

Girl its more than I dare to think about

Every night, every day, just to be there in your arms!" he sang off-key to her.

"Please, leave now or I will be forced to call the doormen." she said stiffly, her nerves beginning to become jumpy.

"I will have you! YOU ARE MINE!!!!" he bellowed, grabbing her by the neck.

Velvette screamed once as his hands pulled her down to the ground, and ripped her costume from her body. Satine's description or that night in the Tower, suddenly ran through her mind. 'Is this how you felt?' she wondered as she fought with all her might against the crazed man.

The door to her dressing room opened, and Damien stepped through the door, an angel in Velvette's eyes.

Damien gasped at the situation at hand and before he could control it his temper quickly got the better of him. In one fluid motion he pulled the Duke up from the floor, and hit him so hard, his nose broke on contact, gushing blood. VElvette screamed and fell to the ground.

"Chocolat!!!" he bellowed.

The Duke struggled free, and kicked DAmien in th shins, taking to his feet and running for his life. CHocolat, and the Argentian arrived seconds later and assesing the situation, took off after him. Damien pulled Velvette into his arms as she sobbed into his chest her heard her muffled voice



"Won't you stay? Won't you stay?

Stay for ever and ever and ever and ever?

La La La LaLaLaLaLa La La LaLaLaLaLa

La La La LaLaLaLaLa La La LaLaLaLaLa

I just can't get you outta my head

boy your lovin is all think about,

I just cant get you outta my head,

boy its more than I dare to think about..."

He stood, carrying her in his arms to the carriage, determined to take her home to her sister.

"Don't worry, darlin' I'll get ye home to Satine..." he started

"No!" VElvette said nervously "I don't want to go home! I feel so dirty, so dirty!!"

He pulled her into his arms as she broke into sobs and told the driver to go to his own address.

He began to sing to her

"There's a dark secret in me,

dont leave me locked in your heart

set me free, feel the need in me,

She looked deep into his eyes and replied with all her heart

"Set me free, stay for ever and ever and ever and ever..."

Then heads bowed together their lips almost touching, their passions flaring, their need for each other growing, the wind carried their tune.

"La La La LaLaLaLaLa La La LaLaLaLaLa

La La La LaLaLaLaLa La La LaLaLaLaLa

I just can't get you outta my head

I just cant get you outta my head,

I just can't get you outta my head

I just cant get you outta my head."

The carriage stoped at Damien's small apartment building, the two never took their eyes from each other as they left the carriage and walked up the stairs to Damien's apartment and finally in to Damien's bed.

The Duke was furious. Not only at losing Marmalade, but at being bloody. HE made his way down the dark street, not paying attention to where her was until a familiar voice said to him

"Hey Dukie"

He looked up and recognized the face.

"What are you doing here?"

"WHat should have been done a long time ago." came the snarling answer.

He saw the gun and heard the crack of the shot being fired, but did not feel the burning pain that killed him.
