SCENE 31: FINDING LEM

INT. INTERIOR POOL-NIGHT

Lem was drunk, he sat by the abandoned pool with empty beer bottle next to him.

LEM

So I guess you’ve won

he took the ring and

just left.

TAWAT

(Suddenly sat next to

Lem, grab one of the

beer bottles and drinks)

He’s not here and I don’t

have the ring.

LEM

Why do you like him

Tawat?

TAWAT

Just as, why do you

like him Lem?

LEM

I’m not scared of you

I saw you before that

rainy evening.

TAWAT

I know.

LEM

What do you have that

I don’t? We’re both swimmers.

We’re both handsome.

So what makes you special?

TAWAT

I’m dead. You’re not.

LEM

So is that what it

will take for Chai

to love me?

TAWAT

Probably. (Looks at the dirty

dark pool)

LEM

I’m a swimmer, you know.

I won’t drown.

You can’t make me

swim.

CHAI

(Suddenly shows up)

But I can.

LEM

Chai?

CHAI

Why did you left?

LEM

Because you said no.

CHAI

I did not say no, I said

I have to go.

LEM

You took the ring

and just left, what am

I suppose to think?

CHAI

That I’ll come back?

LEM

(Looks at Chai’s hands)

Where’s the ring?

CHAI

I gave it to someone.

LEM

You gave the ring that

I gave you to someone?

CHAI

Yes, because that’s

hers.

LEM

Ok, what you did is

really weird, I won’t argue

about the ring for now.

How did you knew I

was here?

CHAI

I followed my heart.

And listened to Tawat.

He showed up and told

me that you’re here.

And then he left

just like that.

LEM

(Turns around, Tawat was

gone)

Are you saying, yes?

CHAI

Yes, I want to be

your boyfriend.

Lem walks towards Chai and slowly kissed him, Chai responded more passionately.

CHAI

So should we go home

now?

LEM

Is there a way that

we can get the ring

back, because my dad

said that ring will make you

happy, will make us happy?

CHAI

(Notices that Lem was

tipsy. he motioned

for Lem to ride at his back,

he then tookLem

out of the abandoned pool

towards the waiting bike)

We don’t need a ring to

be happy, all we need is

each other.

Lem kissed Chai again.
