Pure Taboo – Once He’s Out Of The Way – Lily Larimar, Romeo Mancini
Beth (Lily Larimar) is just about to head out when her parent, Leonard (Clarke Kent), stops her. She’s been going out a lot lately and Leonard is concerned about her. Beth is hesitant to tell him anything, but after some coaxing, she nervously admits that she has a new boyfriend. Leonard is pleased and insists on meeting the boyfriend.
A few days later, Beth’s boyfriend Jake (Romeo Mancini) comes over to meet Leonard. But to Leonard’s shock and disgust, it turns out that Jake is a much older man. Leonard is furious with Beth for dating someone so much older, and he also angrily confronts Jake for dating an 18-year-old. Tensions are high, and Jake leaves before the argument can get even worse. Beth, still shocked, says she needs time to think and leaves, with Leonard warning her she’s not welcome back home if she chooses to be with Jake.
Later that same day, Beth is in Jake’s bedroom. She is heartbroken, while Jake tries to comfort her. Leonard is the only family that Beth has, so she doesn’t know what to do about Leonard’s ultimatum. But Jake seems to become inspired. He starts trying to convince Beth that they need Leonard out of the picture in order to be happy together. Beth is shocked and conflicted, as Jake suggests that they could get Leonard out of the way by getting him into serious trouble. Beth isn’t sure she wants to go that far, but Jake is very persuasive…
