SCENE 5: OLIVE ESCAPES

EXT. NURSING HOME GARDEN-DAY

Ashton sat next to Olive by the Nursing home gardens. Olive was smoking.

ASHTON

Why don’t you just file

a request to go to the

mall, you can take the

service bus or hire a cab?

It will be much more easier

than waiting for Mike.

OLIVE

And be stuck with all

those losers like Petals?

The Nursing home bus

moves like a turtle

as its carrying a bunch of

brittle bones.

The bus will only

take you once a week to

certain parts of the city

like parks, zoos and

cheap cafes. Besides, while

will I hire a cab when I

have my own sports car?

ASHTON

Driven by your 20

year old boyfriend Mike.

OLIVE

Why? What’s wrong

with him being 20.

It’s just numbers.

ASHTON

Nothing. I’m just saying,

he’s way too young

for you.

OLIVE

Well, I’m 60, what’s

wrong with a 40 year old

gap?

ASHTON

You mean 60 year

old gap?

OLIVE

Well, Mike says he

loves me.

ASHTON

Your car and cash

you mean.

OLIVE

I can’t keep my car

here. I declared myself

poor. And with no

assets to milk from me,

the Nursing home is

technically stuck with me.

ASHTON

That’s why they’re

popping all those weird pills at us,

Probably so they can

unstuck themselves on us.

OLIVE

Somebody is in a bad

mood today. Your Nursing

student will be back Monday.

They have exams today.

ASHTON

Who? Caleb?

OLIVE

Who else but him?

ASHTON

He’s just 20.

OLIVE

Right, that’s exactly

what I said when I

mall bumped into Mike.

He’s just 20.

Twenty minutes later

he grabs my car key,

and we’re officially a couple.

Mike beeps Olive’s car. He parked it in front of the concrete wall. Olive quickly gave her cigarette to Ashton, jumps from the wall, seconds later she’s sitting next to Mike who waves at Ashton and drove off. Petal sat next to Ashton, she saw everything. She grab the cigarette from Ashon’s hand and smoked it.

PETALS

Pinch me Ashton.

Did Olive just jump

from that wall and

drove off with a hot boyfriend?
