SCENE 10: THE PAGEANT COACH

INT. AIRPORT LOUNGE AREA- NIGHT

Carlos woke up. He stretched his hands. Carlos hands bumps into a guys abs, he feels his abs up. And that’s when he realized that his head is on the lap of another guy. He quickly got up. He’s at the airport’s lounge area.

PAGEANT COACH

(Offers Carlos the cup of

Pink milk that he’s drinking)

CARLOS

(Declines the Pink Milk)

Hi. Sorry.

PAGEANT COACH

You know what’s really weird?

the flight attendant just

hauled you out here,

and dropped you right at

my lap. I tried to wake you

up, but you’re totally knocked out.

Long night?

CARLOS

Sorry, I get air sick

most of the time.

PAGEANT COACH

First time in Bangkok?

CARLOS

Yes, you?

PAGEANT COACH

I’ve been here couple

of times. I’m a pageant

coach. Are you waiting

for someone?

CARLOS

Not really. You?

PAGEANT COACH

I don’t know what’s

happening, they’re suppose

to pick me up two hours

ago. But they’re still

not here. I’m about to

give up and just go back.

I’m tired and I’m hungry.

So what do you plan to do?

CARLOS

I don’t know yet, really.

You see, I have this cute

boyfriend, I mean he’s

super cute, he’s like a surgeon.

PAGEANT COACH

A surgeon? (Raises his eyebrow

doubting Carlos)

CARLOS

Yes, he’s a surgeon. I

know, I don’t look like the

the type who can nail a

surgeon. So I went down

on my knees and proposed to

him. He said no.

And so, I got here,

hoping to calm my heart

and change my luck.

PAGEANT COACH

Interesting. So you’re

saying you’re here to

fix your bad lucks?

CARLOS

Do you think bad lucks

can be fix?

PAGEANT COACH

I think I know a way,

do you have cash?

CARLOS

I’m kinda broke right

now.

PAGEANT COACH

Do you want to earn some

cash, like right now?

Since it seems no one’s

picking me up, I can get a

room at a hotel, you can stay

with me if you want.

CARLOS

Stay with you?

PAGEANT COACH

Yes, what’s wrong with

that? We’re both men.

And I’ll pay you.

CARLOS

Doing what?

Suddenly, Peerapat got up from where he was seating, he quickly grab Carlos hand and pulled him out of the lounge area, Carlos tries to catch up with him.

CARLOS

Excuse me? Do you speak

English? I don’t know what

just happened and why

you’re pulling me?

PEERAPAT

Going to a stranger’s

room just because you’re

broke.

CARLOS

Excuse me?

PEERAPAT

Don’t you have any

respect for yourself?

You don’t even know

that person.

CARLOS

Like I know you?

PEERAPAT

I’m Peerapat.

CARLOS

Carlos. And I’m not sure

why I just said my name.

Can you let go of my hand

now, please? You’re hurting me.

Where are we going?

PEERAPAT

To your hotel room.

CARLOS

You mean your hotel room?

I wish my mom was here

right now. She always said

I got lucky with Gabriel.

And suddenly Bangkok happens.

Two guys are fighting over me.

They both want me in

their hotel rooms.

Peerapat let go of Carlos hand. He rolled his eyes. Carlos took this chance to run away from Peerapat, but it was too late, Peerapat sense this, so he just grab Carlos and lift him up his arms. Carlos was so shocked. Peerapat then carried him straight to his car, where he buckled him up.

CARLOS

Since it seems I’m headed

to your hotel room.

I just wanna make sure

that I’ll still get paid right?
