SCENE 32: TAWAT HANGS OUT WITH MILI

EXT. MILI’S ROOFTOP-NIGHT

Mili and Tawat eats their popcorn while staring at the night’s sky.

MILI

So what do you plan

to do now, find the

light at the end of the tunnel?

TAWAT

That’s fiction. There’s

no light, and certainly

no tunnel.

MILI

Are you saying, you’re

just gonna hang out

here?

TAWAT

Chai gave me peace

by finding the missing

ring, but he also broke

my heart by choosing Lem.

MILI

I see…so you still

love Chai?

TAWAT

Yes

MILI

So he’s the one that’s

holding you back?

TAWAT

I really don’t know

Mili. All I know is that

I love him.

MILI

But don’t you think you

should set him free?

If he’s for you, he will

be for you.

TAWAT

Life is a perfect puzzle.

Everything are sized to

fit. I know that Chai

is that perfect fit, it’s just that

right now…

MILI

He’s not the perfect fit.

TAWAT

Mili, I think you’re too…

MILI

Direct?

TAWAT

Honest.

MILI

Ok, I’ll give you the

benefit of the doubt, let us

say you were able to turn

things around, but it doesn’t

change the fact that you’re

still a ghost.

TAWAT

Why what’s wrong that

I’m a ghost?

MILI

I didn’t say that’s

wrong. I just said, you’re

a ghost. That’s all.

Tawat stares at Mili, and then he smiles and throws a popcorn at Mili, who also throws a popcorn at him. Both ended up in a popcorn war. Mili screams as Tawat laughs.
