SCENE 12: CONFUSING CALEB

INT. BAR- NIGHT

Ashton was very nervous. Olive was a little bit drunk. They’re sitting by the bar area.

ASHTON

Olive, it’s getting late,

don’t you think we should

head back now?

OLIVE

Few more minutes,

I know Mike will show up

with his girl.

ASHTON

Who told you he’ll be here?

OLIVE

Petals. She saw it at

Mike’s social media.

This is where they

usually hang out on weekends.

ASHTON

He’s a young guy. And you’re

92. What is there to

be jealous of? Give him the

dignity of space and freedom.

OLIVE

I gave him everything

from cash to car. All I’ve

asked is for him to tell

me, if he’s seeing someone.

ASHTON

But you’re not sure yet

who that girl is. She can be

his sister or just his friend.

OLIVE

That’s why we’re here

so I’ll find out everything

in real time.

ASHTON

I need my oxygen tank.

We have to leave soon.

OLIVE

Speaking of oxygen tank, look

who’s wearing one.

Caleb enters the bar wearing a white tank. A guy immediately approached him, they head to the dance floor and starts to dance.

ASHTON

Caleb? Is that him?

OLIVE

Look at his sexy moves.

Let me tell you those

moves are meant for the

bedroom. (Looks at Ashton)

Yours perhaps?

ASHTON

Don’t be silly. Why

will he dance at my

bedroom? Maybe just

in my wildest dreams.

Let’s go home before

Caleb sees me here.

I’ll look pathetic.

OLIVE

Do you want to dance

with Caleb?

ASHTON

I’m 90. Why will he

dance with an old guy

like me?

OLIVE

But I will come on.

Let’s dance.

Ashton checks Caleb out, he’s at the dance floor dancing with a new guy. Meanwhile, Olive quickly crushed five pills at her drink and offer her drink to Ashton.

OLIVE

Here. (Offers her drink)

ASHTON

I don’t drink.

OLIVE

Come on, just a sip.

Then we’ll quickly dance,

and head out of here.

We’re in the bar

Ashton, we’re suppose to

drink and dance.

ASHTON

I don’t want Caleb to

see me.

OLIVE

He won’t. It’s dark here,

there’s tons of people,

what are the chances that

he will see you? Plus as you

can see, he’s pretty busy

with guys vying for his attention.

Ashton hesitates. He shrugs his shoulder and drinks everything. Olive pulled him to the dance floor, nobody notices that he pops into his 20 year old self. Olive smiled, Ashton was indeed very handsome. Ashton felt a little bit weird when he starts to get people’s attention, suddenly to his shock, guys starts to dance around him. Caleb noticed him, he left his dancing partner. He heads straight to Ashton.

CALEB

Hello hottie.

ASHTON

Caleb, I can explain.

CALEB

You know me?

ASHTON

I’m not blind. I’m just

old. Of course I know you.

CALEB

Have we met before?

ASHTON

Are you drunk? It’s me,

Ashton.

CALEB

You got that right,

I’m Caleb. Say, you want

to head out here?

Before Ashton can even react, Caleb grabs his hand and pulled him straight to the mens room. He locks him to the cubicle wall with his arms.

CALEB

So, it’s just us now.

What are you into?

ASHTON

Caleb, how many beer

did you drink?

CALEB

Doesn’t matter. Right now

what matters is that I can’t

hold it anymore, I want to kiss

you. Can I?

ASHTON

Caleb, you’re forgetting

something. Why would

you want to kiss an old man

like me? I know you kissed

me before, but we’re in a

different situation right now.

CALEB

What exactly is the situation

that we’re in right now?

(Grabs Ashton’s hands

and puts it in front of

his pants, Ashton quickly

withdraw his hands)

ASHTON

Caleb, you’re drunk.

You don’t know what

you’re doing.

CALEB

One more word and

I will definitely kiss you.

ASHTON

Caleb…

Caleb just kissed Ashton, roughly at first and more intimately few seconds later. Ashton responded to the kiss. Suddenly Olive pushed the door open.

CALEB

Miss Olive?

OLIVE

We gotta go.

Come on.

Olive pulled Ashton out of the men’s room, into the hallway and straight to the taxi waiting outside the bar. It happened so fast, Caleb follows but it was too late, Ashton and Olive was gone.
