SCENE 19: CAR JEALOUS

INT. PETE’S CAR-NIGHT

Pete looks over at his car’s dashboard mirror, he smirks as Will wipes the sweat off Mike’s face and neck.

PETE

(Talks to himself)

What’s this? Acting all

babyish and all that, if you can’t

control yourself, then don’t drink

at all.

Pete notices that Mike was actually awake as Will continues to wipe his face. He winks at Pete, as Pete quickly hits the brakes, pushing Mike’s face towards Will, their lips almost kissed.

PETE

Sorry.

WILL

It’s ok. Thanks for

doing this.

Sorry that Mike is

a mess right now.

PETE

When did he not

become a mess?

WILL

He can hear you,

you know.

PETE

I don’t care.

So you said, he

lives by the next block, right?

WILL

Yes. (Looks at the window)

Just right there.

MIKE

Don’t take me home.

Just drive. I don’t want

to see her.

WILL

Just knock and talk

to her. If she refused to

let you in, then you can stay

with me.

PETE

Seriously?

MIKE

Then let me just stay

with you.

WILL

You can’t.

MIKE

And why not?

PETE

Because you have

a girlfriend?

MIKE

(To Pete)

I’m not talking to you.

PETE

I’m not talking to you

either. I’m talking to myself.

WILL

Pete, can you

park the car here?

PETE

I thought you wouldn’t ask.

Pete parked the car, got out and helps Will walk Mike towards his girlfriend’s place. Will knocks, the door opens, the crying girlfriend quickly hugs Mike, and pulled him inside, closing the door right by Will’s face.

PETE

She must have hated you that

much. You have a talent for

causing troubles.

Will slightly smiled at Pete, they walked slowly towards the car.

WILL

It sucks to be me,

don’t you think so?

PETE

You like him.

What’s wrong with that?

WILL

Am I that obvious?

(blushes)

Pete touched Will’s face, which made him more conscious of the current situation that he’s in.

PETE

You’re blushing.

WILL

Am I?

PETE

Is it because of him?

Or is it because of me?

WILL

Why do you always

help me?

PETE

Why are you asking

that question when

you know the answer.

WILL

It’s just that, you’re going

to spoil me and I’ll end up

relying on you even more.

PETE

Then do so. You have my

full permission to depend on me.

WILL

That’s not fair.

PETE

Why? Because we’re not

dating yet?

WILL

That. And also, I’m not…

PETE

You’re not in love with me?

I know.

WILL

You know?

PETE

Can I ask you something?

WILL

Yes

PETE

(Touches Will’s face, and slowly

rubs his cheeks, Will closed his eyes)

If I do this, do you feel something?

Anything at all? (His finger stops at Will’s

lips) How about this? Does this

make your heart skip an extra beat?

WILL

Pete, don’t. ‘cause you’re just

going to give me hope like Mike.

PETE

I’m not Mike. What I will give

you is not hope but certainty.

Let’s date. Give me a

chance to date you.

WILL

Why?

PETE

Does everything needs

a reason?

WILL

Forgive me for asking

but I just can’t help it,

you’re a CEO and I’m a janitor.

Does all of this makes sense

to you? The bridge that leads

to your world only exist in dreams.

I can’t afford to dream, I need

to pay my rent.

PETE

Get in the car.

WILL

No.

PETE

I said, get in the car.

I will not ask again.

Pete stares at Will who stares back at him. Few seconds later he got in the car and drove off, as Will sat by the sidewalk and starts to cry.
