SCENE 19: FAI HAPPENS

EXT. BANGKOK SIDE STREET-AFTERNOON

Peerapat was drinking a beer and eating a chicken intestine at a street kiosk. Fai, Adisak’s girlfriend sat in front of him and grab his beer. She drinks the beer straight from the bottle.

FAI

So? Speak up. Where’s

my boyfriend?

PEERAPAT

He’s with Carlos.

FAI

That’s it? You just gave in,

you did not even gave

me the chance to interrogate you?

What’s going on Peerapat?

Who’s Carlos?

PEERAPAT

His pageant coach.

FAI

I might be super pretty

but I’m not air head stupid.

I knew everything.

Adisak’s secretary spilled

all the details,

you picked up the wrong

guy at the airport, and

my boyfriend now was caught

by his charms.

PEERAPAT

He’s not the only victim

of his charms.

FAI

I see…anything else

you want to add?

PEERAPAT

They’re taking the boat

right now. Adisak told me

that he’ll take Carlos

for dinner at the restaurant

by the pier.

FAI

Why are you telling

me all of these?

(Gives Peerapat his beer

bottle)

PEERAPAT

Why does love sucks?

FAI

Everyone laughs at me

because I’m putting up

with all of Adisak’s

scandals. Pierre, Thompson,

and now Carlos.

What choice do I have?

I love my boyfriend.

Love just naturally sucks.

Right now, I’m focused

on Adisak’s competition,

I want him to win

because I know that will

make him happy.

Carlos becomes a dangerous

distraction.

PEERAPAT

So how do you do it?

No, don’t tell me. I don’t

wanna know.

(Drinks his beer)

FAI

I’m an actress. I’m trained

to smile even if it hurts.

I need Adisak because

he’s rich, he has all the right

connections and also because

I thrived from his scandals.

I become relevant.

People talk about me.

I become the victim that

people feels sorry for as

As Adisak jumps from one

scandal to another.

PEERAPAT

I like him. I like that

dangerous distraction.
