SCENE 11: PETAL DEMONSTRATES

INT. OLIVE’S NURSING HOME ROOM-NIGHT

Petals rushed inside Olive’s room, at that time Olive was in bed kissing her boyfriend, Mike.

PETALS

Olive!

OLIVE

Petals? What’s going on?

What’s the rush?

PETALS

(Tries to catch her breath)

Olive, do you know that

there’s a shirtless hottie

next to you, or is that just

me seeing weird things?

OLIVE

He’s my boyfriend

Mike. And don’t you dare

report me for sneaking

someone here.

Or I’ll tell everyone that

you don’t have a boyfriend.

PETALS

But I don’t have a boyfriend?

Big deal, everyone knows

that. Olive, am I losing it?

(Sat by the bed and starts

feeling Mike’s thighs up)

MIKE

Hey, go easy on my

thighs, you haven’t paid

yet.

PETALS

Olive, for the past

four days, I’ve been

taking these pills meant

to reduce my smile wrinkles…

OLIVE

Why would you want

to reduce your smile

wrinkles? Those wrinkles

are holes that makes a

person cute.

PETALS

I thought those holes

are called dimples?

Anyway, I’m suppose to

take only one pill, but

I got greedy. I took

five at a time in the past

four days.

OLIVE

And why did you

that?

PETALS

Because with each pill,

I popped into my 20

year old self for a minute,

and not a second more.

OLIVE

I don’t get it. I thought

those pills are for

smile wrinkles?

PETALS

I can’t explain either

why that thingy

happened.

(To Mike) How about

you sweetie,

do I look like 20 and

I mean like right now?

MIKE

With cash, I couldn’t agree

more, I’ll say anything

you wanna hear.

PETALS

Weird, I thought the gym

fries the brain muscles.

Apparently not.

(Stares at Olive)

The years can’t lie.

It can’t cover the truth.

Of course I could have

taken more per day but

I got scared of the side

effects.

But you see Olive,

those five pills gave me

five minutes to stare at

my 20 year old self.

After that I pop back to

92. Time is truly cruel.

MIKE

Ok, those stuffs that you

mentioned are totally

hard core. But is there a

chance that you’ll be interested

for some gym actions in front

of you, like sits ups and push ups,

of course that will be extra.

OLIVE

So essentially what you’re

saying is, if you pop a pill,

you’ll turn 20?

PETALS

Yeah, that’s just what

I said, do you have amnesia

or something?

Petals takes the pill bottle from her pocket, and she popped a pill. Mike screams, Olive was shocked, Petals popped into her 20 year old self.

PETALS

After a minute.

reality bites back.

Mike screams again, Petals popped back to her 92 year old self after a minute. Olive grab the pill bottle from Petals.

OLIVE

What do you want me

to do with this pill

bottle Petals? Do you want

me to ditch it or sell it

online for quick cash?

PETALS

Do what you want.

I don’t care.

I don’t want to be 20

again. I can’t lie to

myself, I’m old Olive.

Petals hugs Olive and left her room. Olive looks at Mike who just shrug his shoulder.

OLIVE

Ok, there’s only one way

to find out if this is working

or it’s just Petals having her

drama moments.

(Pops one pill)

Mike screams.

OLIVE

What happened?

Do I look 20 now?

MIKE

No, you look the

same.

OLIVE

Then why did you

screamed?

MIKE

I don’t know.

I just got carried away

because all of these

are getting to be too much.

OLIVE

It doesn’t work for me.

MIKE

Disappointed?

OLIVE

Nope. Because I have

cash. I can buy love.
