SCENE 26: ROOFTOP WITH MILI

EXT. MILI’S ROOFTOP-NIGHT

Chai and Mili hangs out by the rooftop, throwing popcorns at each other, counting the night stars and just watching the evening sky.

MILI

Chai do you believe

there’s other earth like

planets out there?

CHAI

Why are you from

there? (Jokingly throws

some popcorn at Mili)

MILI

Do you believe in

ghost?

CHAI

Depends if she’s

my best friend, I guess,

I’ll believe because

she’s ok.

MILI

(Throws some popcorn at

Chai)

I’m serious. Do you believe

if they exist, they can connect in

real time with us?

CHAI

You mean like your

real time social media

updates?

MILI

I mean….like

Tawat?

CHAI

Tawat? What about him?

MILI

Is he a ghost?

CHAI

How did you know?

MILI

I pieced everything

together.

What I observed,

what you said,

what Lem told me.

CHAI

Mili, I’m really

confused right now.

At first I felt something

for him, and then

Lem happens.

And now I think

I’m more sure.

MILI

That you like Lem?

CHAI

Do you think

I’m making a mistake?

MILI

We all make mistakes

in love. But it’s never

a mistake to choose

someone who will

make us happy.

If let us say Tawat is a ghost,

then he’s from a different

dimension, a level of time

we don’t understand yet,

probably because,

it’s not meant to be

understood.

Because it’s just too

complex for our mortal minds

to figure out.

CHAI

I think I’m in love

with Lem. I’ve always been

in love with him.

It’s just that it took

me sometime to

process everything.

MILI

Did you tell Tawat?

CHAI

I had not seen him

for more than a week

now. I met his mom

few days ago.

I think that’s primarily

why he contacted me

to tell his mom

that he’s ok.

MILI

Chai you know I

can read your mind.

There’s still something

that’s troubling you.

CHAI

I don’t think I can

help him anymore.

MILI

But you said, you

already met his mom,

what else does he

wants you to do?

CHAI

Find the missing

ring he stole from

his mom, and return it

back to her. I don’t know.

But that’s the only thing

I can think of.

MILI

Where the heck

will you find that

ring, at the pawnshop?

CHAI

Probably, I should

start checking the pawnshops

around, or maybe it was

sold, or the ring is

still there, back at that

pool where he drowned.

MILI

He drowned?

Is that how he died?

If that’s the case, then

he’s really a ghost

who figured out how

to connect to our dimension.

I’m gifted Chai.

I’m really sensitive to spirits.

CHAI

I can’t

drag this anymore.

I need to tell Tawat

the truth. I’m in love

with Lem. But I will still

help him find the ring,

if that’s what will give him

peace. Do you have

your car with you?

MILI

I don’t, my brother

got it. But I have a bike?
