INT. BEDROOM - EVENING! DANNY, A 16 year old teenager reaches back from the lens after clicking the record button.! DANNY! *clears throat* Hi there, my name’s Danny. Danny Lyman, and this is a love story. More importantly, this is my love story. Well, a teenager’s love story. So! Where to begin, that’s a good question. Ok. Let’s start here.! CUT TO.! EXT. WOODS - DAY! DANNY and JOSH are sitting on a bench, it seems to be a sunny after school afternoon. The two boys are in dressed down school uniform and throwing stones at a can.! DANNY (V.O)! It was a relaxed after school afternoon and, Oh by the way:! The shot freezes on a shot of JOSH throwing a stone.! That’s Josh, he’s my best friend and, well, we may be similar on a physical level. But when it comes to intellect… yeah… he’s not a rocket scientist.! The stone Josh threw hits the can and knocks it over.! JOSH! Yes! I knocked the can over. So you owe me a tenner.! DANNY! (confused)! When did we bet on this?! JOSH! like, literally before we started throwing the rocks.!
! DANNY! *laughs* no, we didn’t bet.! JOSH! I swear we did?! DANNY! No, we didn’t.! JOSH! *pause* well, ok then.! CUT TO.! INT. BEDROOM - EVENING! DANNY! Yeah we did.! CUT TO.! EXT. WOODS - DAY! DANNY! Anyway, Josh, how’s things with Janet?!

DANNY puts down his collection of stones in an attempt to get into a serious conversation with JOSH.! JOSH! Who? Oh Janet, she’s great. Best relationship I’ve ever been in.! DANNY! You’ve only been in one.! JOSH! (getting defensive)! Oh I’m sorry how’s it going with Christina?! DANNY! *pause* That was mean Josh. Real Mean.! The shot pauses on DANNY.! DANNY (V.O)!
! Ok, this needs an explanation.! CUT TO.! INT. BEDROOM - EVENING! DANNY! Christina was a girl, well to me at the time she was more than just a girl. She was a smile that never failed to brighten my day. She always made me feel good, even if she was on the other side of the room. She was *sudden change in tone* Blah Blah Blah the point was she wasn’t my girlfriend. And I was on a non stop mission to change that.!

(During DANNY’s romantic paragraph above, there will be a montage of CHRISTINA.)! INT. SCHOOL ROOM - MORNING! DANNY is sitting across the room from CHRISTINA. DANNY continues to stare straight at her as she looks up at him. After a few seconds, DANNY realises what is happening, and instantly looks away. DANNY looks embarrassed as he walks off to go join another group of friends.! INT. BEDROOM - EVENING! DANNY! CHRISTINA and Me were meant to be. See, it even rhymes. Although the grammar in that sentence is appalling.*sips energy drink* So if you’ve interested, sit back and relax, because, if I can say so myself, this is a great story. So good that I even came up with a title and everything.! DANNY lifts up a board with Meant To Be hand-written on it. The title moves out of the board as the background fades and we are left with Meant To Be on a black background.! TITLE
