SCENE 16: CLARISSE KNOWS

EXT. OUTSIDE PARK-NIGHT

Lauren walks alone at the park’s walkway, she just got off from school. Her phone rings, it was Teddy.

LAUREN (On the Phone)

Hello?

TEDDY (V.O.)

Lauren! Girl what happened

to you? I’ve been calling

you for days, and you’re

not like answering, is everything

ok?

LAUREN (On the Phone)

Hey, just been busy

with the cheer practice,

sorry, I was planning

to stop by your house,

the other day, but for

one reason or another,

I just got caught up.

TEDDY (V.O.)

You know you can

always stop anytime

you want, my doors

are open, even from

midnight and beyond.

Hey, did you see

Drew’s latest online post?

LAUREN (On the Phone)

I did.

TEDDY (V.O.)

Well…what do you

think? Is that too much?

LAUREN (On the Phone)

Teddy, I’m happy for

you. That’s what I

really think and feel.

He won’t post that

photo if he’s not

serious with you.

Basically, that’s his

way of officially going

public with you.

TEDDY (V.O.)

I’m just worried

about what people

will say, from his

teammates, to school

mates, his close friends,

his college rivals…

LAUREN (On the Phone)

Don’t be. If they react,

they’re just jealous.

Lauren suddenly stops walking. Clarisse was literally standing in front of her, blocking her next step.

LAUREN (On the Phone)

I’ll call you later tonight

Teddy. I have to go.

TEDDY (V.O.)

Ok, hope it’s not a

month’s time. Call me anytime (hangs up)

LAUREN

Clarisse?

CLARISSE

Does Teddy knows?

LAUREN

About what?

CLARISSE

Lauren…Lauren, you might

be the most talented

cheerleader in the entire

College, but when it

comes to practical stuffs

in life like lying, you’re

certainly dumb pretty.

LAUREN

I don’t know what

you’re talking about

Clarisse, just say it

directly. I have nothing

to hide.

CLARISSE

A month or two?

LAUREN

Huh?

CLARISSE

Does Teddy knows

that Drew’s your baby daddy?

I can’t believe you

didn’t tell him. How long

will you wait before you come clean?

You’re Teddy’s best friend,

you’re suppose to be

playing on Teddy’s team,

not sneaking behind

him and secretly backstabbing

him.

LAUREN

If I’m pregnant right now

that’s none of your business,

I can tell you right now,

it’s certainly not Drew’s.

CLARISSE

Are you sure about that

Lauren? You can drop the

“ifs” now, we’re far beyond

that, ‘cause I know you are.

INTERCUT BETWEEN CLARISSE AND LAUREN

INT. DOCTOR’S OFFICE-DAY

Clarisse is working as an intern at the doctor’s office where Lauren and Drew went for Lauren’s pregnancy test. She printed the result of the test, Lauren’s pregnant. She knocks at the doctor’s office where Drew and Lauren are currently sitting, holding hands waiting for the pregnancy test results. The doctor stood up from his table and took the results from Clarisse, Lauren and Drew did not see her as she’s standing just at the edge of the doctor’s office, blocked by the door and the doctor’s back. Clarisse went back to her front office desk and cried.

LAUREN

So you knew all along?

CLARISSE

I’m doing my course

internship at your doctor’s

office. When you came in

with Drew, I knew exactly

what you’re both there for.

LAUREN

Sorry.

CLARISSE

For what? For getting

pregnant or for the

fact that Drew doesn’t

really love me?

LAUREN

Is that what he said?

CLARISSE

I love my boyfriend Lauren.

I will do anything

in the world to win

Drew back, but I can

only go this far.

I can’t force him to

love me. But certainly,

I can force you to

do this.

Clarisse hands Lauren two big plastic containers of bleach.

LAUREN

What’s this?

CLARISSE

Obviously, it’s a bleach.

I want you to bleach

Teddy’s laundry. Or my

pretty cup cake lips

will start talking.

Teddy’s just a

speed dial away.

LAUREN

It’s just a one time

thing Clarisse.

CLARISSE

I know you went

to one of those

weekend

parties that Drew and

his teammates go to.

Knowing you, I would

say you seduce my

boyfriend. And that

brings us to where we

are tonight. Fact check,

I’m not the one with

bleach on hand. Do it

Lauren, bleach Teddy’s

laundry, post it online

and tag me. I’m not ashamed

to be behind all of these.

I’m just that desperate

girlfriend, who wants to

have the last laugh.

But I’m not worst like you,

I’m not pretending to be

Teddy’s best friend.

You stole my man

Lauren, now you’re about

to break Teddy’s heart.
