SCENE 7: BREAKFAST CHAT WITH THE TOURIST

EXT. OUTSIDE CAFE-DAY

The tourist slowly eats his salad, and drinks his morning cafe at an outside table of a sidewalk cafe when Axel just sat in front of him. Axel almost knocked the coffee from the startled tourist’s hand who looks up to see his beaming face.

AXEL

That’s your breakfast?

Coffee and salad? No

eggs and toast?

That looks kinda

boring.

TOURIST

Well, this is healthy.

AXEL

I can see that

it’s working.

(Looks at the overweight

tourist from head to foot,

finally landing his gaze

at the unbutton shirt

slightly showing the

protruding belly of the

tourist)

So aren’t you curious

on what happened last

night between me and

Apiwat?

TOURIST

No, I’m certainly not.

I’m straight.

I don’t want to hear

anything. Thank you.

I’ll just finish my

salad and I’ll be out

of your way.

AXEL

He came to the

hotel room, so super drunk.

He fell on top of me,

and then OMG

he asked me who I

was and then he kissed me

and do you know

what happened next?

TOURIST

No, I seriously don’t want

to know. Not interested.

WAITER

(Went to their table and

hands Axel the menu)

So…what happened (To Axel)

TOURIST

Just the check please.

AXEL

Nothing really happened

after that kiss. (Looks at the

waiter and back to the Tourist)

He rolled over to the farthest

corner of the bed, and slept.

Next morning, I was

like talking to myself,

and there he was

standing behind me,

he overheard everything.

And he was like

I’m not gonna give

you a full refund.

TOURIST

I can’t believe,

I’m still here,

sitting listening to

all the fine details.

WAITER

And then, please continue.

I’m totally hooked to you

now. So what happens next?

AXEL

And we did it. I don’t know

how it happened. I lost track

of how long. Everything

just seems so random

backed with perfect

timing.

WAITER

Wow, I wish my girlfriend

will be that random.

TOURIST

Can I ask you

something (To Axel)

AXEL

That’s exactly what

he said before he left.

and then he went

like dinner sometime

after 7.

The two customers at the nearby table joins in at the conversation

CUSTOMER 1

And did you say yes?

CUSTOMER 2

Of course he said

yes (To Customer 1)

WAITER

Did you?

TOURIST

(Eyes wide shocked

he can’t believe

that everybody’s in

at the conversation

right now, he was about

to ask Axel something

but he decided to just

keep quiet)

AXEL

Well, I said yes, what

do you think guys?

The first meet up

with him was like

a transaction, he could

have just left this

morning, but instead

he asked me out.

The last time I check

I did not swipe any

credit card.

WAITER

I think he likes you.

TOURIST

Of course he likes

your money. I can’t

believe I just said

that. I can’t believe

I joined this silly

conversation. I had my

breakfast (To the waiter)

Keep the change.

(Leaves couple of Bahts,

stands up and left)

CUSTOMER 1

(To Axel) Don’t listen to

him. He’s just jealous,

probably he’s not getting

any.

CUSTOMER 2

Just go for it. Fighting!

That’s what a second

date is for, so you

both can figure out

whether there’s

attraction or just

fleeting temporary chemistry.

WAITER

So what does he

looks like? Judging from

your exquisite look, I’m

sure he’s very cute like me.

AXEL

(To Waiter)

Well, he’s very tall,

sort of like your height,

he’s very good looking.

I’m not saying you’re

not equally hot,

Actually to be more

precise, he looks like that…guy.

The two customers and the waiter turns around, as they follow Axel’s gaze. Axel got up, to further check the huge billboard at the other side of the street, it was a poster of Apiwat promoting his upcoming concert.

WAITER

He looks like Apiwat?

AXEL

Weird. That’s also his name.

WAITER

So you’re doing Apiwat?

You’ve done Apiwat.

Are you sure that’s him?

AXEL

Probably yes, or probably no.

What do you think?

WAITER

Are you asking me like

I was there in the same

room as you’re both at?

Secretly perverting behind

the curtains?

AXEL

Impossible. That couldn’t

be him. I mean, they always

say, we all have look alikes.

WAITER

Did you asked him

if he was a celebrity?

AXEL

I didn’t even asked him

what he does in life.

We didn’t get to that

part yet. In fact, we did

not really talked.

WAITER

Why?

AXEL

Because we’re both

busy doing the deed

right there

at the bathroom floor.

WAITER

You know right that

you just nailed the

hottest guy in the whole

Thailand?

AXEL

Oh No! I forgot,

I treated him like

a bar guy for sale.

(Worriedly looks at the

waiter)
