SCENE 39: SUNSET WITH KOVIT

EXT. BEACH-LATE AFTERNOON

Kovit covers Axel with a beach blanket. They’re watching the sunset.

KOVIT

Everything ok?

AXEL

I was just thinking.

KOVIT

Thinking of what you

like to do to me

or what you like me to

do to you?

AXEL

Do you think we should

leave Bangkok?

KOVIT

Why?

AXEL

Memories. There’s

just too much memories.

KOVIT

You still love him

then?

AXEL

I never stopped

loving him.

KOVIT

And me?

AXEL

You?

KOVIT

Am I going to be

always the second

best?

AXEL

(Leans his head at

Kovit’s shoulder)

I love you Kovit.

That’s all that matters.

KOVIT

You’re not tied down

to me. You can always

leave if you want to.

Bangkok is my home

Axel. I can’t just pick up

everything, grab a ticket

and leave.

AXEL

Why not? Am I not your

world?

KOVIT

Is this about you

missing your mom?

AXEL

I miss everything

that’s home familiar.

KOVIT

Do you like to

visit? We can start

saving for your

ticket?

AXEL

Kovit are you happy

here at Bangkok?

KOVIT

I’m happy when

I’m with you.

I’m happy when they

paid me and I closed

the door behind me,

forgetting everything that just

happened because I’ll be

going home to your bed.

To our bed.

AXEL

It’s just that sometimes I

feel that we’re barely getting

there. After we pay all our bills

and our rent. There’s just nothing

left, we have to do everything all over again.

KOVIT

Do you want us to stop

at what we’re doing?

AXEL

Did I made a mistake

giving the money that

Apiwat left me to all the

charities he support and

to his family? Do you think I

should have kept something

for us?

KOVIT

No, you did the right thing

This is our chapter,

you’re with me, and I’m with

you. This is us. We don’t have much.

But this is bloody us.

AXEL

I don’t think people

understand what we do.

In their eyes, we’re

just the morning’s trash, but what

they don’t know is that

evening we made somebody

happy.

We sell happiness.

I don’t feel anything

when I’m with them.

When I look at their eyes,

all I see is bitterness staring

back at me.

Telling me that I’m lucky

I’m not them.

I don’t have to ask, I don’t need to beg

and I don’t have to buy love.

Because I have you.

KOVIT

And Apiwat, if he’s

alive, where will I be in

your life?

AXEL

Love is tricky. It changes

without a moments notice.

Like an afternoon wind

that you barely felt but

it was there. Like the morning

leaves destined to be forgotten

swept under the

evening’s waves.

KOVIT

Axel, what are you really

trying to say?

AXEL

If I can go back to

that night at the bridge,

I will still let you walk

away. Because I’m a

magnet for disaster from

Tony to Apiwat.

I know it might suck that night

because I did not chose you,

but I also know the next

morning when you wake

up, you’ll still love me.

Kovit, you’re the love

that’s so rare, because

you are the love

that’s hard to find.

The love that will keep

on loving even if I stopped.

The love that will keep on

knocking no matter how many

doors I closed.

That love will find an open window.

Lucky me, I found my

Good Luck Bangkok.

Kovit, the sun had set,

the morning leaves

are now forgotten.

I’ve said a lot.

But still, it has to be said.

Still it has to be asked.

Because that’s the only thing

that we forgot to do.

Axel starts to sing, “You are the love”

AXEL (SINGS)

MUSIC CUE: “YOU ARE THE LOVE”

You are the love

The love that’s hard to find

The love so rare

It stays behind

How many doors to lock

Windows to close

I’m not afraid

You see

I know, you’ll always be there

You are the love

The love that’s hard to find

The love so rare

It stays behind

Let me be that love

The love that’s hard to find

The love so rare

Let’s end it here

And be my love

You are the love

The love that’s hard to find

The love so rare

It stays behind

Let me be that love

The love that’s hard to find

The love so rare

Let’s end it here

And be my love

KOVIT

(Cries)

Axel, will you be my boyfriend?

AXEL

Oh yes, Oh bloody yes.

(Tears flow from his

eyes)

Kovit stares at Axel, slowly he wipes the tears from Axel’s eyes, he slowly kissed Axel with smile in his eyes.
