SCENE 22: PEERAPAT DRUNK

EXT. OUTSIDE HOTEL-NIGHT

As Carlos walk back to his hotel after getting off from the cab, he passed by Peerapat who’s very drunk, sitting alone by the street side kiosk next to the hotel. He taps, Peerapat’s shoulder.

CARLOS

Peerapat…Peerapat…

PEERAPAT

Huh?

CARLOS

Are you ok? It’s me

Carlos

PEERAPAT

Carlos? The Carlos

who was dumped by

his boyfriend and in love

with Adisak?

CARLOS

(Sat by the plastic stool

in front of Peerapat, he drinks

his beer)

You can say that.

I guess that’s true.

But why are you acting

like this?

PEERAPAT

Acting? Like what?

CARLOS

A jealous drunk.

PEERAPAT

So that’s who I am

to you, I’m just a jealous

drunk?

Do you think Adisak

will meet you, if not

for me? I might be drunk

right now, and everything

I say may not make sense,

but I’m right….right?

I like you Carlos, but

right now, I’m the love that

will never be. And that really

sucks.

Suddenly it starts to rain, the kiosk owner gave Carlos a clear umbrella, so he and Peerapat won’t get wet. Carlos opens the umbrella.

PEERAPAT

Tell me, why it’s not me.

What’s wrong with me Carlos?

I have a six packs like

Adisak. (Lifts his shirt)

I may not be Mister Thailand,

but I don’t think I’m ugly.

With me, you won’t have

a trouble called Fai.

And don’t even brought up

your son of a nothing surgeon

boyfriend. He’s nothing but a

selfish coward who can’t

recognize love even if it’s

screaming right at his face.

CARLOS

I know his girlfriend is

trouble but it goes beyond

his abs and title as Mister Thailand.

If you’ve been with someone

for three years,

it’s not something that

you can shove away and

forget. You see Peerapat

I’m standing between two

forces on opposite poles

forcing me to choose.

PEERAPAT

Then choose me. I chose you

back at the airport over

that pageant coach.

Because I don’t have to

think twice to like you.

Carlos, you’re the love

that’s easy to love.

CARLOS

Peerapat, I know it’s

cruel to say this right

now. But I’m sorry, it has

to be said. You have to hear it

because this will take you

forward. I’m sorry, Peerapat,

I don’t…. love you.

PEERAPAT

Wow. That does not only

sucks but that really hurts.

CARLOS

I’m sorry.

PEERAPAT

Kiss me.

CARLOS

Huh?

PEERAPAT

That’s the least you can

do. Don’t let me kneel

and beg. Kiss me Carlos.

Adisak was at his car, he was watching everything from the distance. Carlos slowly moves his face towards Peerapat, he kissed Peerapat. Adisak cries and drives off thinking that Carlos chose Peerapat.
