Laundry Teddy Scene 4
SCENE 4: ROGER BULLIES TEDDY
Teddy waits outside as the class finishes, he looks around as the students exits the classroom. He finally found his customer, Teddy hands the laundry bag to her, she immediately paid him. Two students from the same class, had their laundry bags with them, they gave it to Teddy and that's when he felt Roger's arm around his shoulder.
You missed picking up my laundry
last week, are you by any chance
I've just been busy. Roger, you
see....I just have a lot of laundry
Right, but not my laundry. Come on
Teddy, who are you fooling? Why did
you not picked up my laundry? I
don't have clothes to wear. They're
all waiting for you. So why are you
not washing them?
Because....I need the money and
you've never really paid me. I
mean, that's not fair.
Teddy dropped the two laundry bag he's carrying, this distracted Roger as his eyes looks down towards those bags, Teddy takes this opportunity to dash out, away from Roger. He bumps into couple of students as he runs through the hallway, panicking he found his way at the school's mens restroom. He hid at the last stall. Roger, meanwhile follows, runs towards Teddy, straight towards the mens restroom at the end of the hallway. As soon as he got inside the restroom, he started kicking every door of the toilet stalls until he found Teddy standing scared stiffed at the last cubicle. He kicked Teddy's stomach and legs. He pinned him by the stall wall, tugging both arms from behind to immobilize him.
Don't hurt me please. I'll do your
laundry. Please don't hurt me.
Roger...please don't hurt me.
From now on, I'll never miss
picking up your laundry. It will be
free...free forever. It will be my
priority. I promise. I'm sorry Roger,
I'm really sorry.
That's good to know. Why do you
have to run like an ugly coward,
when you're gonna easily give in?
Rumor has it that you don't know
how to read, if I wrote something
in your back, will you be able to
tell me what I wrote?
Roger splits Teddy's shirt in half from his back, fishing the pen from his pocket, he wrote the word "L O S E R" at Teddy's back. He then pulled Teddy out of the stall towards the restroom sink. Teddy stares at the sink mirror. Roger pushed him to turn towards his side.
Go on, don't just stand and stare.
What did I wrote? Prove to me that
those rumors are not true.
I don't know Roger. I can't
read what you wrote.
How old are you, 40? And you can't
read a single simple word? How about
this, (push Teddy to his back again
and writes the word Stupid on top of the
word loser )
What did I wrote
Teddy you can’t say
it right, because…..
because you are really a stu...
Before Roger can finish his sentence, Drew punched him on his face which knocked him down at the floor. He was instantly unconscious. Teddy looks at Drew.
What did he wrote on my back?
That's not you Teddy. Come on,
let's go, I'll take you home. (Drew takes
off his jacket and wrapped it
What did he wrote Drew, tell me,
why can't you just tell me?
Because that's not you.
Drew moves closer to Teddy. He noticed that Teddy's legs are weak. He can barely stand.
Are you ok? Did he hurt your legs?
(Nods at Drew)
Yes Teddy (Moves much closer to
Teddy, their faces are just an inch
away from each other)
You can't move right now.
Because...we're very close. If you move,
something will happen
You mean this will happen?
Drew kissed Teddy who responded at first but exhaustion took over, his head lands on Drew's shoulders. Drew kissed Teddy's head. Drew slowly sits down by the floor, sliding his back against the restroom wall while supporting Teddy's body from falling. Few minutes later Teddy moves, Drew smiled. He helps Teddy on his feet and piggyback carried him towards the waiting car outside the school. As he help Teddy inside his car, Teddy woke up.
Drew....the laundry bags.
I got them. (Apparently while
passing through the hallway, Drew
saw the laundry bags that Teddy
dropped to distract Roger)
Did we... what, do this?
Drew kissed Teddy who responded willingly.
