Laundry Teddy Scene 1
SCENE 1: LOVING HIS MOM
EXT. ROOFTOP LAUNDRY AREA-AFTERNOON
Teddy looks up blinded by the afternoon sun, he wiped the sweat from his forehead and detergent suds from his arms, he's washing his customers laundry at that moment. He looks around as he took a deep breath, surrounded by wet laundry and dry clothes hanging from the line that runs across the rooftop, he's far from finishing his wash that afternoon. Suddenly, Miguel shows up in front of him.
(In mocking tone)
My Dear Teddy, why so surprised?
What are you doing up here?
(whispers) My mom's downstairs, we
had an agreement.
What? That I won't show up
unannounced? I'm here to pick your
mom up as agreed.
Then why are you up here talking to
me? You should be downstairs with
her. We don't know each other as
far as my mom is concerned. You're
just gonna arouse her curiosity.
she might suspect that I'm behind
all of this.
Dear Teddy why act so innocent? So
what? Isn't that the truth? This
was all your idea. You created me.
This divine situation is your
immaculate conception. Tell me,
Teddy, do you enjoy sleeping with
other guys so they'll date your mom
or you just pay and ditch them like
what you're doing to me?
Teddy was about to throw the laundry that he's washing at Miguel's face, but he stopped him by pinning him on the wall behind him. Miguel's face closes in as Teddy protested, but Miguel is stronger, he kissed the resisting Teddy.
Do I need a laundry appointment to
see you? I've been calling you and
you're not answering my call.
Seeing you here right now with all
these dirty laundry makes me
wonder, what kind of dirt does
Teddy hides besides me? I'm
curious, how does Laundry Teddy
wash his laundry?
Separate the whites from
everything, rinse, soap, scrub and
rinse again before hanging them
dry, fold, pack, deliver, get paid.
The cycle starts again with a new
I'm not really talking about the
laundry. I have no intention of
becoming a human laundromat like
you. You know what I meant Teddy.
What do you want Miguel?
Good question, what do I want?
I don't have much money today. I
thought what I gave you is enough.
I want more.
If you want more, you have to wait
until this wet laundry dries up and
I get paid. Maybe by Tuesday,
probably at the end of the week.
I'm hurt. You think this is all
about money? What about my
feelings? Maybe I should just come
clean, Dear pretty Sylvia, guess
what, I think, you're not all that
pretty, but rather, you're a loser.
It takes your son's laundry blood
money to fund what's going on
between us. Because...guess what
Teddy has to find you a date
because you can't find one on your
own. You can have all the screaming
tweenage friends in the world, but
you'll never be like them. Why?
Because guess what Sylvia, you're
not like them, you're decades old
Scared? (moves closer towards
Teddy, pushing him more against the
wall, his hand touched Teddy's
cheeks, he kissed Teddy who
protested at first but he also gave
in, thinking that this is the only
way out of this situation. Miguel
runs his hands down, he slowly
gripped and released Teddy's neck
as his other hand continues to
unbutton Teddy's shirt.)
Sylvia, suddenly showed up and hugged Miguel from behind, who released Teddy as she caught them off guard. Teddy quickly turned around and buttons his shirt up.
I thought you just left? Sorry, it
took me sometime to find this
skirt. How do I look? (spins
Like Paris. French stylish.
Why are you up here? (To Teddy)
Teddy....this is Miguel, my
boyfriend. I know this may come as
a surprise to you. I'm not blind,
he's younger than me..but
But you’re beautiful mom, you're
always going to attract anyone just
as you’ve attracted Miguel.
I told you, my son will like you.
Teddy quickly hands his mom some cash, she kissed him and waved bye as Miguel gave Teddy an intense stare. Meanwhile, Drew saw everything, he was standing by his room window on another building directly across the laundry roof top building where Teddy's at. Drew had been observing Teddy for some time now. He felt weird, how can he feel something for someone he had never really met?
