SCENE 18: WILL WALKS MIKE

EXT. SOPHIE’S KIOSK-AFTERNOON

Sophie sighed upon seeing Will as he got off the cab, she went back to grilling as Will rushed to Mike who’s lying by the sidewalk, next to Sophie’s barbecue kiosk.

MIKE

You came.

WILL

Obviously. I don’t have

much cash to bail you

out of jail or emergency room

and chances are, you’re

gonna end up there tonight.

SOPHIE

I drag him here.

He’s standing facing

the traffic and people

don’t care whether they

hit him or not.

(Sighed and went back to

the barbecue orders that

she’s grilling)

WILL

(Taps Mike’s face who by

now had fallen asleep again)

Mike…Mike, can you get

on your feet?

I’ll walk you home.

MIKE

(stands up with Will’s help.

He leaned his arm around Will’s

shoulder, they walk towards

his place)

Will…

WILL

Yes?

MIKE

She dumped me.

And it really sucks.

WILL

Don’t worry about it.

We’ll talk tomorrow.

Right now, let’s just

head home.

MIKE

Sophie’s crazy.

You should dump her.

WILL

She yanked you out

of the traffic. How can I

dump someone who saved

the life of my best buddy?

If I do that, the crazy one

will be me.

MIKE

Best buddy? I thought you

like me? I thought you see me

as your boyfriend?

WILL

You’re drunk.

Besides, you’ll never be

my boyfriend, because you’ll

dump me. It’s nice to hear

that coming from you though.

MIKE

I will not dump you.

I love you.

WILL

There you go again,

the alcohol at the driver seat.

Tell you what,

why don’t you ride me?

That will make things

much easier.

Will piggyback carried Mike as Sophie rush towards them.

SOPHIE

(Gave Will the paper bag with

the watch which Pete got for Will)

Your mom left this. She wants

you to call her. I need to get

back to work.

WILL

Ok, Thanks. I’ll text you later.

Sophie smiled and went back to her barbecue kiosk.

MIKE

What did she gave you?

WILL

Nothing. My mom just

left something for me.

MIKE

Sorry. I’m just drunk

tonight. Am I heavy?

WILL

You’re light as a feather.

And that’s a lie.

MIKE

Where are you taking

me to?

WILL

To your girlfriend’s

apartment.

MIKE

She’s not gonna open

the door. She kicked me out

remember?

WILL

There’s a big difference

between being kicked out

and being dumped.

Besides, she knew that you have no

other place to go to other than hers.

MIKE

(Whispers)

Why can’t I just stay

at your place?

WILL

You can. But it’s

better this way, so

you can talk to her

when your sober tomorrow.

This is not the first time

that she kicked you out you know,

and you always manage to get back.

Pete’s car slowly drove by, jealousy written all over his eyes. Mike notices the car and in his drunken state, he saw Pete staring back at them, Mike tickles Will’s ears with his lips while staring back at Pete. Pete pulled his car to the sides and quickly rush towards Will and Mike.

PETE

Get in.

WILL

Pete?

MIKE

Hello Mister CEO.

Pete pulled Mike off Will’s back.

WILL

Pete, what are you doing?

(Rushes to Mike’s sides to make

sure that he’s ok.)

PETE

Are you deaf Will? I said,

get in the car, I’ll take you

home, and this guy to

wherever crappy place

he lives at.
