THE GUM TREE
By
MANDY BOTTRELL & EMMA CHAPMAN
EXT. ALLEYWAY. NIGHT.

Open on a dark alleyway in downtown Springfield, MO.
Although we see no one, we hear the distant voices of people
enjoying themselves as well as live music. From around the
corner appears Dallas, a 22 year old with a tough exterior.
She\u2019s mysterious and guarded. Her clothes offer a
provocative assumption. She lights up a cigarette. She seems
deep in thought. Dallas finishes her cigarette and heads out
around the corner where we see small groups of people
socializing on the sidewalk.

INT. CAFE. NIGHT.
Dallas walks into a cafe. The girl in front of her, June, is
paying for her drink. June puts a $5.00 on the counter.
CASHIER
I\u2019m sorry, the total is $5.95 Miss.
JUNE
Oh, OK.
June grabs into her purse and pulls out a quarter and a
penny and slaps it on the counter.
JUNE
OK?
CASHIER
No. $5.95

June dumps her purse over the counter and tampons, pads, bubblegum (used and unused), a couple old photographs and some pennies fall out.

CASHIER (EMBARRASSED)
Do you not have the change?
JUNE
I do not have the change?
DALLAS
Here.
Dallas slaps down a dollar bill.

DALLAS (CONT.)
Keep the change- or better yet,
give it to her.

Dallas nods towards June. June looks at Dallas in silence,
taking her in.
2.
DALLAS
You\u2019re welcome.
June takes her drink and walks to a table in the back.
CASHIER
You forgot your change!
June doesn\u2019t respond.DALLAS
I\u2019ll take it. I want a small
coffee- black.

The Cashier pours it while Dallas takes a moment to study
June. The cashier hands Dallas her drink and Dallas walks
over to a table across from June. June awkwardly looks at
Dallas as if she would like to talk to her but is too
afraid. Dallas notices this and walks over to her table,
knowing she needs a place to stay for the night and this
might be an opportunity.

DALLAS
Do you want your change?
Dallas sets June\u2019s change down in front of her and then sits
down at the table with her. June looks a bit startled and
confused.
DALLAS
What\u2019s a matter? You saving this
seat for someone?
June is silently frantic trying to figure out what to say.
DALLAS
What? You act as though no one has
ever spoken to you before.
JUNE
No.
DALLAS
OK... So, what\u2019s your name, kid?
JUNE
June Simon.DALLAS
June. That\u2019s cute. I\u2019m Dallas. So,
June...
