“MY PRIVATE NOTE

TEASER

FADE IN:

EXT. SCHOOL PARK, LAKEVILLE SOUTH HIGH SCHOOL (LSHS) – DAY

On a break hour, every student has their own favorite spot to hang out.
Some of ‘em are chillin’ out at a cafeteria, some of ‘em are still crowding
the hallway, and some of ‘em are enjoying a sunny day at a park on a back
of school.

Just like sweet MEAGHAN, who’s having a good time reading her favorite
magazine, sitting on a bench park, alone.

But one thing she doesn’t know, there’s someone watching over her, adoring
her, collecting her photos, considering her as the most perfect creature
that God ever sent to the world. That someone is:

JESSICA CARTER
He won’t do it.--

SHAWN FOSTER
(shocked!)
God!

It turns out that JESSICA has been quietly standing behind SHAWN who’s
stalking over Meaghan over a big tree, NATALIE is also there, smirking.

NATALIE MCLANE
Yes, he will. You’re gonna ask her right?-

SHAWN
(cut off; chastising)
How long did you guys in here?!

JESSICA
That doesn’t matter. What matter is How
long will you be her secret admirer? Oh I
know! Forever!
(dramatically undertone)

NAT
Oh come on Jess. Support your best-friend
over here. And as your cousin, I always
believe that you have that courage inside
of you. You’re gonna step up and do it!

JESSICA
Ha! ‘yes, he will’.
(scoffing)

Shawn is again staring at Meaghan, wondering if he really has that gut to


finally ask her out.
2 | P a g e  

 
 

SHAWN
(a beat)
…she’s right, Nat. I’m a coward.--

NAT
(disappointed)
Oh Shawn!

Jessica is laughing.

NAT
(snubbed)
Jessica, stop teasing him, okay?! Help
him!
(mouths)

JESSICA
(reluctantly; sigh)
…Seriously Shawn, just go there and ask
her! It’s only 50-50, if she said Yes,
your happy, if she said No, you are
nothing but a missarab--

NAT
(cut off)
Then you’ll still have us to back you up.
Okay?
(glares at Jess)

JESSICA
(roll her eyes)
Yeah… she’s right…

Shawn seems preoccupied, still gazing Meaghan.

SHAWN
(after a beat)
I -- I don’t know guys…--

JESSICA
(impatient)
ah come on! Would you step up already?!
She’s alone now! This’s such a good
opportunity! Or you wanna wait till the
other 2 bitches arrive, huh?--

NAT
(impatient too!)
Come on! Just go there!--

SHAWN
Ok-ok! I-I just need a moment first!
Okay?!

3 | P a g e  

 
 

JESSICA
You have a moment for about a year!--

SHAWN
But what should I have to say?!--

JESSICA
just GO!

Jessica pushes Shawn over to finally make him walking toward Meaghan.

NAT
(bit shouting)
You’ll find your words after you meet her!

So there, he walks. Jessica and Nat are still waiting behind that big tree,
chaperoning Shawn in action.

He tries to turn back, but he stops it because of the ‘forceful stares’ of


his 2 girlfriends. So he keeps trudging toward Meaghan. And there he is,
standing un-normally beside Meaghan.

SHAWN
(gulps; collect his guts)
H’-- hi Meaghan.

MEAGHAN JETTA GELLAR


(turn to him)
Hi Shawn!
(sweet smile)
what’s up?

He flutters and gagging. Meaghan looks puzzled.

SHAWN
(“finally”)
C’ can I ask you out?

A beat.
MEAGHAN
Where?

He obviously surprised.

SHAWN
…Ya I haven’t thought that far…
(a beat)
You know what? Just forget about it! Have
fun reading your magazine! Bye!
(immediately turn around)

MEAGHAN
w…hey!
(call him back)

4 | P a g e  

 
 

Shawn looks back to her, embarrassed.

MEAGHAN
You can take me to the mall.

His heart just stops beating. Good surprised.

SHAWN
R’really? I love Mall! I can go to the
Mall.
(walks toward her again)

MEAGHAN
Okay!
(giggling)
We’ll go tomorrow then.

SHAWN
Okay!
(smile anxiously)

A silent. He doesn’t know another word to say.

SHAWN
Well bye.

He tries to escape.

MEAGHAN
Hey where’re you going??--

SHAWN
(immediate turn back)
No-no where, why?

MEAGHAN
Well do you wanna sit here and accompany
me reading this magazine?

She smiles at him. Genuine sweet smile.

SHAWN
(impressed smile)
…I’d love to…

He sits beside her right away. Meaghan is just giggling.

MEAGHAN
(look at Magazine)
… hey look at this dress, d’ you like it?

SHAWN
Sure, you’ll look even prettier wearing
that color.

5 | P a g e  

 
 

And then, Shawn secretly looks at Jess and Nat, and giving them a thumb up!
Jess and Nat are just smiling relieve.

NAT
Aww… just look how happy he is.

JESSICA
I know, …such a moron.

♫In the night, I hear them talk


the coldest story ever told… ♫

From a distance, right at the park down there, Nat hears some familiar
voice SINGING with his guitar. She turns back and there she sees, KRIS,
hanging out with his band pals singing Kanye West – Heartless song with his
beloved guitar. She smiles.

♫To a Woman so Heartless…♫

KRIS WOOD
Go.

And then the band guys start to make their music, 2 guitars and a Cajon,
making most of the heads at the park turn around at them and listening to
their cool music at their own place.

Jessica also turns her head around them, following Nat who has already
enjoyed them.

JESSICA
They’re so stupid.

NAT
Huh? Why?

JESSICA
For playing and not being paid! Seriously,
a dollar from 1 student, they’ll be rich.

NAT
Oh, such capitalism minded. They’re
playing from their heart. They don’t care
if they were not getting paid whatsoever…

JESSICA
But they won’t refuse money, right?

NAT
No one will.

They’re just chuckling. They enjoy them playing. But Nat doesn’t stop
there. Unaware, she seems also enjoying watching the singer intently.
Absorbed by his charmed.

6 | P a g e  

 
 

NAT
He’s adorable.

Jessica immediately turns her head over Nat. Really surprised hearing Nat’s
last line. And Nat starts to notice the suspicious look of Jessica.

NAT
(look at her)
…what?

JESSICA
Nothing.
(a beat)
Just having a thought that you start to
like him.

Nat stricken.

NAT
What??
(weird chuckle; flustered)
Th’That’s ridiculous. I only said he’s
adorable so that means I am sooo in looove
with him??

JESSICA
You’re not in looove with him -- You just
like him.
(taunting smile)

NAT
Oh come on, I don’t like him. I was just
saying that as a friend. No special
feeling. I mean -- I never really noticed
him before, you know… pro’lly because I
was with Gabriel back then. And now, as a
friend,
(firmly)
I started to understand why most of the
girls here are idolizing him.

JESSICA
Because…?

NAT
Well you know… because he’s got that
charming look, sweet attitude, brainy, --
really nice vocal…
(gazing him)
…so caring, …very low profile… humble…

Nat falls deep into her amusement. While Jessica’s smirk gets even wider.
But after a beat, Nat comes to her senses.

7 | P a g e  

 
 

NAT
Er’ you know, he’s just cool.

JESSICA
…You’re saying that as a friend?

NAT
As – a friend.

A beat, then:

JESSICA
I believe you.

NAT
(resistant)
W’ I am!...

JESSICA
Sure, I know. It’s been like a month since
his love confession. Is there any chance
for you to finally reconsider your answer?
Not a chance.
(teasing)

NAT
Ah, whatever. I’m the one who actually
feels it, so I know what the truth is. /
Hey! He’s looking over here!
(sudden react)

Kris sees Nat and Jessica up there, and gives them a nodding with a sincere
smile while still playing.

NAT
Hi…
(mouths)

Nat’s waving at him and giggling cutely, even blushing a little bit.
Jessica scrutinizes her entire shameless acts. And Nat herself also just
realized how she acted. A long pause, then:

JESSICA
Yeah you like him.

Nat’s eyes just dart about, looking for a place to hide.

FADE OUT

ACT ONE

FADE IN:

INT. SCHOOL PAPER CLUB, LSHS – DAY

Jessica watches Nat editing her article for the next LS Times (Lakeville
South Times) printed in the notebook. And then, the door’s open, Kris and
Shawn come into the room.

KRIS
Hey girls.

The girls look up. Nat’s heart beats a little faster as she sees Kris.

JESSICA
Hey. Got any news?

KRIS
Good news actually, still remember Mr.
James Klerk, one of the school funder?

Shawn directly heads to a photocopy machine, and copying some papers.

JESSICA
A busy guy who always never had time for
us?

KRIS
(smile proudly)
Now, he has.

JESSICA
(happy shock)
Seriously?!

She gets closer to Kris.

KRIS
Yeah, he got us an appointment this
afternoon at his office. So, prepare for
the questions, okay?--

JESSICA
(cut off)
Wowow’ wait, what did you say? ‘this
afternoon’??

KRIS
Yeah, why?

JESSICA
W’ this afternoon I got a schedule to
train Bob’s brother!

9 | P a g e  

 
 

KRIS
And you can’t cancel it, because…?

JESSICA
Because I’ve done it twice to him! Last
Monday: Interviewing the Principle.
Yesterday: working on Earth Day Jargon! So
I move it today! I can’t turn him down
once again, I just feel bad about that.

SHAWN
(smirks; not facing Jess)
Sure… because you’re starting to like him.

JESSICA
Not a right reason! Thank you for joining
our conversation.
(nipping)

KRIS
(sigh)
Well you gotta set your own priority. Pick
what’s more important. Remember, this busy
guy won’t have another time for us.

Jessica confused. So, she tries to compare those 2 options by raising both
of her hand.

JESSICA
(raising left palm)
Training Bob’s brother, I got paid.
(raising right palm)
Interviewing the school funder, I got
grade.

KRIS
Lower the left one, just lower the left
one.

SHAWN
Well I’ll help you to consider it.
(turn over them)
Would you rather to hang out with your
‘hunk lover’ Bob or just got stuck with
this ‘solid Kris’?

KRIS
(chuckles)
Dude, you’re not helping me.--

NAT
(raising her hand)
I’ll do it.
10 | P a g e  

 
 

The others look over Nat right away. Jessica puts her suspicious look,
while Natalie herself seems not realizing her sudden act and just takes her
hand down slowly.

NAT
O’ or not whatever… I’m just the editor
here, journalism is a whole lot different
world for me. ‘Hahaha…’
(awkward chuckles)

KRIS
Oh, well if Nat can replace your position,
I think we have no problem here. You don’t
have to cancel your date with bob then.

JESSICA
He’s not my date! – And actually, Natalie,
I was a bit surprised by your nice thought
for replacing my duty here with Kris.
(investigate look)
That’s quite a candor of you, since you
always refuse this interviewing job
before.

NAT
Well…
(gagging a bit)
I’m just being nice now. But, if you mind
with that, you can always ask Shawn to--

SHAWN
Pass.—

NAT
I guess not.--

KRIS
No-no! There has to be a girl here. Cuz
some says that old guy is kinda odd, he
could never avoid answering questions from
a cute girl, like you for instance.

And Nat just starts to blush.

NAT
…Oh Wood, that’s flattering… hihi…
(giggling)

Jessica winces. Seeing Nat’s odd behavior really makes her feel sick.

KRIS
Well, some people says that I’m the
“master of the Flatter”. --

11 | P a g e  

 
 

NAT
Ah – Haha!!
(overacting laugh)
Master of Flatter! That’s a good one!

Jessica winces even more.

KRIS
(chuckles)
Well okay then, it’s a deal now. Jess, you
help her making the questions, okay. Nat,
I’ll see you after school.

NAT
Okay!

Kris just smiles and leaves. While Nat still can’t rid her happy face. And
now, Jessica’s suspicious look is the one for her to be concerned of.

NAT
…what?

SHAWN
So now it’s your turn to like him?

Nat is completely shocked with Shawn’s sudden accusation! So is Jessica.

JESSICA
Oh Thank God you realize that too!

SHAWN
Well who doesn’t? She’s blushing when Kris
flattered her, and she’s laughing at
Kris’s joke, which was not funny.

NAT
W’haha…
(nervous laugh)
okay that is a premature accusation.
First, you know me from a child my skin is
easily blushing Not only because I’m
ashamed. And second, I -- kinda thought it
was funny! You know, some people have
their own level of jokes, maybe you didn’t
understand that one. --

JESSICA
It was not funny. And your laughing was
hideous! Kris is never good at making
jokes, for God sake!

NAT
Ah, you guys are just exaggerating.
(gets up)
(MORE)
12 | P a g e  

 
 

NAT (CONT’D)
I don’t – like him. I’m just trying to be
a nice person here, but I guess you just
didn’t see that. I’m-offended here. So,
bye-bye. I’m off to class.
(trots off)

SHAWN & JESSICA


Bye-bye, Mrs. Wood.
(holding their laugh)

NAT
(from a bit distance)
Oh stop it!

Shawn and Jessica are just laughing at her.

INT. LITERATURE CLASS, LSHS – CON’T

MR. CROCKER
Alright, Just open the page 15th,kids.

Jessica sits at the front, while Bob and Chace are in the same class,
sitting in a back row. They open up the page.

MR. CROCKER
Okay, now you’ll see, there’s a piece of
Sonnet here from William Shakespeare. You
know what that means?

Students’re whining. Aww…

MR. CROKER
Yes, aww… I heard from your whining that
you already know what this mean. So, who
wants to read this sonnet?

Someone raises the hand, and it turns out:

MR. CROCKER
Ah, Mr. Klein! That’s unlikely. You wanna
read it?

BOB
Oh not me, Sir. But I know the one who can
read something like that so… beautifully.
Probably she’s some kind of a poetry I
guess.

MR. CROCKER
Really? Whom?

BOB
Jessica.

13 | P a g e  

 
 

Jessica’s startled, and the stares of everyone immediately turn to her.

MR. CROCKER
Miss. Carter! I never knew that you like
poems.--

JESSICA
W’well I don’t!
(panicking)
He’s lying! He’s just fooling around with
me, Sir! He hates me!
(strong whispering)

She glares at him, but Bob seems don’t even care and just holding her
laugh. Chace, who sits beside Bob, also seems enjoying her panicking.

MR. CROCKER
Oh, so you don’t like poems.--

JESSICA
NO.
(straight answer)

Mr. Crocker looks a bit offended. Jessica notices it.

JESSICA
I-I mean, I like it, but not a big fan,
(smile awkwardly)

MR. CROCKER
Well, Miss. Carter. You still must read
it. If you’re good, you’ll get some point.
If you’re bad, you and Mr. Klein will lost
some of the points.

BOB
What? Why am I included?!--

MR. CROCKER
Because you’re the one who gave the
recommendation to choose her. So, let’s
see. Miss. Carter.

BOB
Oh great…

With a heavy heart, Jessica looks at Bob cynically and starts to stand up
slowly. And turns around facing the students.

JESSICA
Ehm-ehm….

Everyone chuckles a bit, prepares to laugh at Jessica. Jessica steals a


peek at Chace who’s still smiling at her. She feels more embarrassed.

14 | P a g e  

 
 

JESSICA
(sigh – breath in)
….”O FATHER” --
(Yelling!)

And everyone just shocked hearing Jessica’s thunder voice!

JESSICA
“what a Hell of witchcraft Lies!”

Everyone starts to chuckle watching her ‘strong reading performance’.


Including Chace, especially Bob.

JESSICA
“In the small orb of…”

And their chuckling noises starts to rise up gradually making Jessica


realize that she is the object of their laugh, Of Course!

JESSICA
“of one particular tear!”
(take a look at them)
“But… but with the inun, inundation” umm…
“of - of the eyes/” Sir, they’re laughing
at me!

She complains at Mr. Crocker, but finding him ALSO holding his laugh.

JESSICA
And You are too!!

Bwahahahaha…!
And they just blow their laugh out!.. Even Mr. Crocker holds his stomach to
make the noises not too loud! The jokes really on Her!

JESSICA
W’ Okay this’s totally uncool guys! Not
Funny!!

But they are still laughing.

JESSICA
Argh… whatever.
(grunting)

And now she just let them.

CUT TO:

SFX: The Bell RINGS

Finally, the class is over. All students prepare to leave the class right
away. Jessica puts her books to her bag, still with an upset feeling.

15 | P a g e  

 
 

BOB
O Father!..
(mocking Jessica)

Jessica just rolls her eyes hearing that taunting voice of Bob.

BOB
Me Ears are hurt by Thy Strong Voices!
Haha…

People who still in the room is laughing hearing Bob’s mock toward Jessica.

BOB
Seriously, How many mega volt your voice
is?--

JESSICA
Seriously, you’re gonna have your turn
later. Just wait.

BOB
Oh Ok, I’m scared. I think I’m gonna run
now. Bye-bye!!
(shouting and leaving)

JESSICA
(sigh…)
Jerk… --

CHACE
(cutting)
Well at least you made us laugh here.

Jessica turns around and a little bit shocked seeing Chace behind her. And
she starts to blush.

JESSICA
Er’ yeah by humiliating me.

CHACE
(chuckles)
Well I don’t think you’re humiliated.

They walk out of class together.

JESSICA
Well did you not see, even Mr. Crocker
took out of his tears for laughing out so
loud.

CHACE
Yes, you’re funny, yet you were not
totally embarrassed. You suck up the
situation, and try to be cool with it.

16 | P a g e  

 
 

JESSICA
W’he… what, d’you think I would run away
and start to cry? Hell No. that’s just
gonna make it worst.

CHACE
I know, …you’re a tough girl. That’s cool.
I like it,
(smiling)

JESSICA
(blushing a bit)
well I am a tough girl, that’s why I took
tae kwon do class. Ahaha…
(weird laugh)

CHACE
Yeah… well keep it up…

He smiles and starts leaving her with a happy smile as she walks toward
another class, which is Chemistry. And before she reaches the front door,
on the other way, there’s Nat walking toward the same direction, frowning.

JESSICA
Oh look at us, meeting in a middle road.

NAT
(sigh)
I hate this road.

JESSICA
Huh?

But by the time they finally turn right and get in to the Chemistry Class,
Jessica understands the situation.

JESSICA
Oh, I see what you’re point.

NAT
What?

It turns out that Kris and Mary are also in it, already sitting down side
by side in the right corner, holding each other’s hand with a smile on
their face.

JESSICA
Someone is in jealous now…

NAT
Oh shut up…

Then Kris sees them come in.

17 | P a g e  

 
 

KRIS
Hey Jess, Nat!

JESSICA
Hey!
(friendly face)

NAT
Hey.
(Lazy face)

MARY E. DUNST
Hey guys!
(sincere smile)
C’mon, sit over here.

JESSICA
Allri--

But Nat immediately hold Jessica for not being able to walk toward them.

NAT
Oh no thank’s, we’ll just sit over there,
hehe…

JESSICA
w’ Why’re we--

NAT
(cutting)
Well you haven’t finished your story,
right?

She makes some face signal for Jessica to understand her.

JESSICA
What story?--

NAT (CONT’D)
--Well we just don’t wanna interrupt you
guys with our… loudy voice! Haha… So, just
enjoy your quality time there. Ok? Bye!

KRIS
Well as long as you’re not talking about
us.
(teasing them)

NAT
W’ oops! Busted! Hahahaha…
(really fake laugh)

Nat pushes ‘confuse’ Jessica to the direction she wanted. Kris and Mary
just chuckling watching their behavior. While Nat and Jessica finally sit
in the corner left across Kris and Mary.
18 | P a g e  

 
 

JESSICA
(sigh)
You are soo jealous now.

NAT
I’m not, okay? I really don’t want us to
interrupt them talking like that.

JESSICA
“I really don’t want us to interrupt them
talking like that.” –
(impersonate Nat)
whatever, you are jealous and you know it.

NAT
“No, I don’t know it.”
(impersonate Jess; sigh)
CUT TO:

Mr. Burk, the Chemistry teacher, writes something on a whiteboard, while


the student are slightly paying attention to him, most of them are just
chitchatting around, sleeping, etc… unlike this perfect couple, who
seriously pays attention to the white board. The Smart Couple, Mary and
Kris.

MR. BURK
Okay, who wants to give it a try to solve
this formula?

As always, Mary raises her hand immediately.

MR. BURK
Oh hoho… No dear, we know that you are
good on this subject.

Mary just smiles blushingly while Nat just rolls her eyes.

MR. BURK
Or probably, you’d like someone to take an
attempt on this one?

MARY
Er’ you mean I’m the one who has to
choose?

MR. BURK
Yes, please.

MARY
Umm… you know, I have no one in my mind
except, …

Mary put her hand on Kris’s shoulder.

19 | P a g e  

 
 

MARY
Mr. Wood.

KRIS
Oh c’mon…
(smiling)

MARY
(speak softly; teasing)
Like you can’t do that…

MR. BURK
Mr. Wood, would you mind to step up and
grab the chalk?

KRIS
Ahmm… of course, Sir.
(get up; teasing Mary)
You’re gonna pay for this…

MARY
I’ll take that chance…
(giggling)

And Nat just sticks her finger to her throat as she’s seeing that ‘romantic
action’ between Kris and Mary. So then, Kris walks to the front class, and
taking the chalk to try answering the formula. Miraculously, most of the
student, especially all the girls, are more paying attention to watch Kris
rather than when Mr. Burk explained the lesson.

GIRL 1
(whispering)
Oh he is so cute…

Suddenly, two girls that sit in front of Nat and Jessica start to make
conversation concerning the cute boy who’s standing in front of them, which
making Nat wanted to ease drop at them.

GIRL 2
Tell me about it… he’s a musician but just
look at his arms…

GIRL 1
So sexy…

GIRL 2
He could hug me whenever he wants…
(giggling)

Nat just shakes her head listening to their opinion, and pro’ly feel a
little bit proud for having Kris ever liked her, so she just smiles alone.

GIRL 1
But you know what? I really Thank God he’s
back with Mary now…
20 | P a g e  

 
 

And Nat just loses her smile in a sudden.

GIRL 2
Oh totally agree, they’re just like, a
perfect couple ever. No one can compare
with his charms except her. --

NAT
(cutting)
SSSHHHHHH!!!!.....

All at once, everyone starts to look over Nat, stealing all the attention.
Including Kris. Yes, she’s shushing too loud.

NAT
Er’… … They’re talking all the time! I
can’t concentrate!
(a little too freak out)

GIRL 1 & 2
(Gaps!)
What?!

MR. BURK
Well both of you should be quiet, okay?
Just look at the front.

GIRL 1
(look over Nat; cynically)
Tattler…

NAT
Whatever…

But then, Nat looks around Jessica, and seeing her watching Nat with a
‘really?!’ look puts on her face. Nat doesn’t mind about that,…or does she.

FADE OUT

END OF ACT ONE

ACT TWO

FADE IN:

INT. AROUND SCHOOL – DAY

SFX: SCHOOL BELL RINGS

The school is over for today! All students start to get out of the class
immediately, ready to meet their own group of friends. Just like, Natalie
group which content herself, Jessica, and Kris are already in their base-
camp, School Paper Club, having some preparation for the next interview.

JESSICA
Okay, here are some questions list. And
this is a recorder. See, first you click
this button over here and then--

NAT
(cutting)
I know how to use a recorder. Thank you.
(offended)

The door’s open, and Kris gets into the room.

KRIS
Wrap up the questions?

JESSICA
All done!

NAT
And I know how to work this.
(showing the recorder)
Oh! This’s gonna be my first interview!
Yiay!..

JESSICA
Yippie…
(unexcited)

KRIS
(chuckles)
Okay, we’re going now.--

All of a sudden, the door is PUSHED by someone till it open so widely!

SHAWN
(shouting)
I’m gonna have a Date with Meaghan! Right
Now! Woohoow!!...

And then he runs again, like a wind blow, leaving them a bit confuse, and
don’t really care.

22 | P a g e  

 
 

CUT TO:

At the school corridor thru a way out, Kris is giving some advices for Nat,
who looks really excited, by the interview and probably by something
‘else’.

NAT
So, do I have to raise my voice in a
middle part, or just keep it low for
having mysterious act?

KRIS
Just, try to talk like normal people if
you can.

NAT
… … right. I’m not nervous.

KRIS
(chuckling)
Oh, you look fine. --

MARY
Kris!...

As they’re walking to the outside, Mary’s voice is heard from behind them.
So, they turn around and see her.

KRIS
Hey!.. finish helping Mr. Norman’s
project?

Nat’s face seems a bit unwanted seeing Mary there.

MARY
Umm… not yet. Just got out from the
toilet, I saw you guys walking, he…
where’re you going?

KRIS
Well, going to the interview. I’ve told
you before, right?

Nat just smiles along.

MARY
…Oh.
(pause)
I… thought you always do that with
Jessica, …right?

NAT
Well, she got something else to do. So I
come to the rescue! Woow! Hehe…

23 | P a g e  

 
 

Kris’s also joining the chuckles, but not Mary who’s still in a ‘need some
explanation’ mode.

NAT
I’ll… wait you at the front then. Bye-bye.

Nat immediately leaves them first, avoiding the awkward atmosphere between
them.

KRIS
…what’s the matter?

MARY
Er’ he… nothing, just… a bit surprised
knowing that you do this with… Natalie.

Kris moves a bit closer to her.

KRIS
…so?

Without talking, Mary gives ‘You know…’ look to Kris.

KRIS
(smile)
Mary, there’s nothing left for her. It’s
been a month ago, for God sake.

MARY
I know… Just, … have a little worry for
that. --

KRIS
(cutting)
Well being with you all over again, …makes
me realize that I’m not worth it for
losing you, one more time.

Mary blushes as she’s hearing those romantic words from Kris. So then, Kris
holds both her hands, softly.

KRIS
Mary, you help me to erase my feeling from
her. And believe me, …it works.

MARY
… really?

KRIS
Yeah, …Things are going so fine now. We’re
friends again, nothing awkward between us.
And what matter is… I’m back with you now.

Bit by bit, Mary starts to give him her sweetest smile.

24 | P a g e  

 
 

KRIS
…So, trust me alright?..

MARY
(smile…)
…Alright.

KRIS
Alright…

And then, they start smooching in the middle of the corridor. Be seen by
Natalie who’s waiting Kris in front of the school entrance. She just looks
around seeing something else’s funnier.

KRIS
Wish me luck,

MARY
Good Luck…

KRIS
(chuckle)
Bye…

So, Kris starts leaving Mary who’s still watching him walking toward
Natalie. And they go.

INT. MALL OF AMERICA, LAKEVILLE – DAY

Shawn is having so much fun accompanying Meaghan spending out her cash for
something worthless. They try some dresses, accessories, even Shawn is told
by Meaghan to try some of T-shirts, scarf or pants she picks out for him.
From a silly outfit to a cool outfit. And Meaghan could never look ugly
even though she’s wearing the silliest costume you’ve ever thought. They’re
just laughing all the way.

And they don’t stop till there. Meaghan takes him to see one shop to
another shop till they drop! But it never takes away Shawn’s widest smile
from his face. And then, they stop at the ice cream counter, Baskin and
Robin, and they pick out their favorite flavor. They’re just having a
goodtime!... Shawn is extremely happy to have this moment with his most
favorite female on earth.

And finally, they’re walking to the front gate, with lots of shopping bags
of Meaghan. And they’re waiting for the worker to get Meaghan’s car up
there.

MEAGHAN
Gosh!... I never had this so much fun
doing shopping with a guy.

SHAWN
Really? W’what’s it like with the other
guys then?

25 | P a g e  

 
 

MEAGHAN
Well, they are so boring! Just waiting for
me to finish picking out some dresses. But
you? You really enjoy this moment! I ♥ it!

SHAWN
W’he… well I did enjoy it. I ♥ it too!

MEAGHAN
I know you do! Ha… Thank you!

And Meaghan just hugs him in a sudden. Making Shawn’s heart stops beating
for a moment, and enjoying her breast gluing to his chest. But the car is
already there, makes Meaghan letting off her hug.

MEAGHAN
C’mon!

The worker helps them to put their shopping bags to the car. While Meaghan
and Shawn are getting in to her open Cap Car. Shawn sits beside her who’s
driving the car.

SHAWN
So umm… I’ll… I’ll just stop at the right
corner after the red-light then. It’s near
to my house.

MEAGHAN
What? You’re just gonna go home now?
(sad face)

SHAWN
Not if you have somewhere else in mind.
(straight answer)

MEAGHAN
Well I’m thinking we could go to my house,
trying all of our new dresses. Chit-
chatting, and maybe… I don’t know… just
doing something else fun!

Shawn just can’t say other words except,

SHAWN
Yes, let’s go to your house.

MEAGHAN
Okay! Let’s go now!

Shawn just can’t say anything but mouths “Oh My God!”. And they go!

INT. LOBBY, FUNDING OFFICE – AFTERNOON

Kris and Natalie still wait for him to show up in a lobby. Nat just sitS,
watching the room situation, while Kris readS some music magazine.
26 | P a g e  

 
 

NAT
…God, this’s excruciating. This’s too
much, he’s never gonna see us.

KRIS
Hehe… Relax. It’s only been an hour.
(still reading)

NAT
Only?? It feels like a century for me!
Seriously, are you always waiting like
this with Jessica?

KRIS
We’ve ever waited a senator for almost 3
hours.

NAT
Three??--… You’re kidding me.

KRIS
He said he got something else more
important to do first, we didn’t mind. And
the interview just went over 10 minutes.

NAT
Oh I hope Jessica’s beating him out after
that.

KRIS
(laughing a bit)
She would. But thank God I was there.

NAT
Ha… I could imagine that.
(breath-out)
…So what’re you guys usually doing in this
waiting situation?

KRIS
Umm… nothing much. Just reading like this.
Or suddenly, she starts punching my arms
just to transfer her stress not knowing
that I bruised easily.

NAT
(laughing a bit)
Aaw… Poor you.

KRIS
He… Yeah,

NAT
You mean like this?
27 | P a g e  

 
 

Bug!
Nat is just punching Kris’s left arm. And Kris just looks over her with a
straight face, no laughing.

NAT
… … I’m not stronger like her. She’s a
monster, I’m just a little girl.

Then Kris just slowly slides over to a far place from Nat, and start to
read again. Nat just sigh…

INT. BOB’S GARAGE HOUSE – AFTERNOON

A BREAKING WOOD is heard from Bob’s garage. That because Jessica is


teaching Bob’s brother, Tom, to do the ‘wood breaking’ with a fist.

JESSICA
Use the pressure of your elbow! Not from
the wrist! Get that?!

THOMAS KLEIN
Okay-okay!..

So, Tom tries to do it one more time. He takes a deep breath, and…

TOM
Haaayyaa!

The wood is BREAKING!

JESSICA
Yes! That’s it!

TOM
Aaw!!...

And It looks like Tom also broke his hand.

JESSICA
Still hurt on your fist? Ya, that means
you lack of techniques! You should pay
more attention on those terms! Ya hear
that?!

TOM
I heard that…

Wow, Jessica seems to be the fiercest coach ever, makes Tom a little bit,
scared, or maybe even more. Uninvited, as always, Bob joins them at a
garage, with a chopstick and a pack of noodle on his hands, prepare to mock
his little brother up.

28 | P a g e  

 
 

BOB
Hehey, so, what has Not been doing my
brother? Does he finally can do ‘the
kick’?
(teasing)

JESSICA
Oh don’t undermine your brother… Look, he
finally can break a wood now!

BOB
Wow, 1 month and you already broke 1 tiny
piece of wood. Score!
(still mocking)

TOM
Hey it’s harder than it looks like, okay?
Besides,
(bit whispering)
She may be Hot, but she’s scary… makes my
guts moving ups and downs..

BOB
Haha… really.

JESSICA
Hey I still can hear you! And don’t listen
to your brother. Someone who just yick-
yacking is never able to proof his bluff.

BOB
What? So you think I can’t break that
piece of wood?

JESSICA
No, I think you can even break a piece of
Styrofoam.

BOB
Oh, okay.
(feel challenged)
“Miss. I wanna see some proof”, I’ll proof
it to ya. Take this.

Bob is handing the noodle to his brother, and moving forward in front of
Jessica, prepare to do the breaking.

BOB
Ready to be wowed?
(confidently)

JESSICA
Whatever you say, Mr.

She holds on to a piece of wood.


29 | P a g e  

 
 

TOM
Ha… Just don’t forget to pray first, bro.
Or you can say goodbye to your quarterback
position, because of your hand’s bleeding.

Jessica slightly paid attention to Tom’s crap which probably has a point.

BOB
Naah… just pray that you can be more
awesome like your brother, okay? You
ready?

Bob is breathing in, try collecting all of his power down to his fist. And
then, he prepares to punch that wood, and…

BOB
One… two… / Haayyaa!--

JESSICA
(cutting)
Undo it.

All of a sudden, Jessica’s just evading the wood from his fist.

BOB
Wha/ hey why’d you do that?!

JESSICA
Seriously, I don’t wanna see you crying
like a baby because of your hand’s
hurting.

BOB
Oh c’mon! That’s like a thin wood! I can
easily break it down in two! Or maybe
four! You’ll never know.--

JESSICA
(cutting)
Hey it is not about just breaking stuffs,
okay?! If you would – you can even break
it with your ‘bone-head’. But the lesson
you must learn here is ‘are you able not
to feel the pain after that?’ Do you even
know the technique for doing that!? Your
brother’s here, finally understood about
how the technique works, so his fist won’t
feel the pain afterward.--

TOM
Er’ but I kinda feel a little bit hurt..--

JESSICA
Shut up, I’m trying to compliment you now.
30 | P a g e  

 
 

BOB
Hey, it’s just breaking that piece of
crap, for God sake! There’s no need to
know the techniques, that’s unimportant.

JESSICA
Oh, okay. But don’t make me responsible if
your hand is really hurting then it makes
you can never feel the grass of a football
field ever again! Okay?!

BOB
What?! What’re you--…

But then, Bob realizes something from the last lines she throws at him.

BOB
Oh…

Here comes the taunting smile from Robert to Jessica, making Jessica a bit
suspicious, while Thomas is on the side watching them having argument.

BOB
(move closer to her)
…are you worrying me now?

JESSICA
(stunned face)
What?

BOB
Aww… that is so sweet… It turns out a
masculine girl like you is not that evil
after all. You still cared about me!

JESSICA
Tom, are you willing Not to be the witness
while I beat the crap out of your brother?

TOM
I see nothing!

JESSICA
Good!

TOM
Except about you worrying my brother.

JESSICA
W’ I wasn’t!--

BOB
See?! My stupid brother even can realize--
(MORE)
31 | P a g e  

 
 

BOB (CONT’D)
--that you’re trying to watch my back. Oh
come on… just say it, you start to like
me, don’t you?

JESSICA
Ah would you get a break!
(bit blushing)
I’d rather boil myself up than making you
my ‘boyfriend’! Ewwgh!—

BOB
W’ hey what makes you think that I wanna
be your boyfriend anyway?!
(chuckling)
I never imagine that I would have such
barbaric girlfriend like you are!

JESSICA
Oh – oh really?! Then don’t feel like
you’ve been worried by me! Because I
already have someone to be worried at! Get
that?!

BOB
Owhow ya seriously…I … I…--

Suddenly Bob just can’t find other words to get back at her.

JESSICA
(sigh)
You know what, get over it! You’re wasting
your brother’s rehearsal time now. Why
don’t you finish that cold noodle and
thinking for another word to mock me off,
okay? Tom, get me more woods here, now
you’re gonna learn to break it with your
kick.

Thomas brings the woods over Jessica, while Bob still stands there,
thinking about something that bother his mind. Jessica feels his weird act.

JESSICA
Hey are you just gonna stand over there
and interrupting our practice? Or are you
just gonna back off?

Bob then starts to realize and just take his cold noodle again.

BOB
I’ll back off.
(smile properly)

Then he just leaves the fighting room.

32 | P a g e  

 
 

JESSICA
…weirdo…

INT. LOBBY, FUNDING OFFICE – AFTERNOON – CONT’D

It’s almost 2 hours, Natalie and Kris are still waiting for that Mr. Busy
to show up. And they look like running out of conversation. But Natalie
seems don’t wanna wait in silent. So, she starts to find some conversation.

NAT
So… Let’s chitchatting!...
(thinking first)
… How’s things going on between you and
Mary?

KRIS
Oh,

He closes his magazine and sits directly toward Nat, very fascinated.

KRIS
well you know, it’s good actually. Thing’s
are going better than before we got back--

NAT
(cutting)
Ya you don’t have to explain it – it’s
just chitchat.

Kris looks offended for being cut off of his talking, but Nat seems don’t
mind about it.

KRIS
… … …Ok, Fine.

Nat just sigh… The office is filled with silent again.

KRIS
So,
(look at her)
how’s the Script you’ve been writing on
lately?

NAT
Oh,
(interested)
you know it’s getting really exciting
after the last scene I--

KRIS
(cutting)
You don’t have to explain it, it’s just
chitchat.
(reading again)

33 | P a g e  

 
 

Yes, Kris gets back at her, making Nat feels a little bit upset. Grr…

NAT
Just wanna get even, huh?

KRIS
You started it.

NAT
“You started it.”
(impersonate him)
whatever…

KRIS
“whatever.”
(impersonate her)

And this is what it looks like when things are getting bored around them.
But finally, the front door is open!

MR. JAMES KLERK


(on his cellphone)
Ya, we’re not gonna sign that. It doesn’t
have a solid background. Get that?

Mr. James Klerk with his busy act is walking through the front door, making
Kris and Nat are getting up of their seats, so is the hot secretary,
immediately walking toward him and get even with his steps.

SECRETARY
Mr. Clerk, there’re some students from the
Lakeville South High School. They said
they already had an appointment to
interview you this afternoon.

Mr. Klerk sees them, Kris and Nat who are also walking closer to him.

MR. KLERK
Oh yes, from the LS TIMES. The children of
Principal Connery, huh? Sorry for the
tardiness, I gotta take care something
else important first.--

He’s shaking their both hand, one at a time.

KRIS
Well that’s okay, Sir. At least, we’re
still able to finally see you now. I’m
Kris, by the way. And this is my partner,
Natalie.
(smile properly)

NAT
Sir.

34 | P a g e  

 
 

MR. KLERK
Alright, so come in to my office now.
Hurry.

Mr. Klerk hurriedly comes in to his office, followed right away by Kris and
Nat. And they get in to his main office.

MR. KLERK
Okay then, start giving me questions,
kids.

Mr. Klerk still looks so busy by organizing some paper works he brings to
his sideboard.

KRIS
Record it.

In a rush, Nat takes out her recorder from her shoulder bag and ready to
play it, while Kris’s taking out his notes, still standing.

KRIS
Okay thank you, Sir. As you already knew,
we wanted to ask you about the early
Budget for senior students.--

MR. CLERK
Go on.

KRIS
Well, just like how many additional
dollars spent during the senior year can
be applied. Including the expense of
tuition, books or room and board for the
following freshman year.

MR. KLERK
Well, Parents need to get their pens ready
and their checkbooks open for their
child’s last year of high school. On the
low end, a parent can spend $1500 on a
child's senior year. However, parents can
spend thousands of dollars. So we come to
the solution, for allocating some of the
school budget to help them.

KRIS
Could you give us the details for that
$1500?

MR. KLERK
ACT registration fee is $30 with a $19
late charge for late registrations. SAT
registration fee is $43 with a $22 late
charge for late registrations.--
(MORE)
35 | P a g e  

 
 

MR. KLERK (CONT’D)


--Additional costs of the test, study
guide is $30-45 and ACT or SAT preparation
classes are $100-200. And don’t forget
about the overnight expenses, this can
range from $150-$500.

Nat is soo… impressed watching Kris in action, so calm yet confident! But
she seems really couldn’t keep up with Mr. Klerk explanation.

KRIS
So, before students decide on a college to
attend, they should really visit the
campus.
(chuckling)

MR. KLERK
(chuckling)
Yes, that’s correct.

KRIS
Okay,

He writes it down on his note.

MR. FUND
Okay, next question?

KRIS
(whispering)
Nat, next question.
(still writing)

NAT
Huh? What?
(murmuring)

KRIS
(look over her)
…w’ take off your note and see the Qs.

NAT
Oh, right. Sure..

Nat really looks nervous, as she takes out her notes so recklessly and
caught by Mr. Klerk’s attention.

MR. KLERK
…Okay, I don’t have much time right now.
Just spill out the questions and get it
done quickly.

NAT
O-oh I’m sorry, sir. It’s just that we --
(MORE)
36 | P a g e  

 
 

NAT (CONT’D)
--already wasted our time for almost two
hours just to wait for you before – so I’m
guessing you could just sit down first and
relax a little bit – and then we can start
the interview again.

That statement from Natalie really makes Mr. Klerk takes off of his own
business and stares at Natalie right away, and making Kris widening his
eyes for not believing what he just heard from his partner.

KRIS
Ahaha..ha!
(awkward laugh)
Although – we really didn’t mind for the
waiting because it was worth to see you
now, right Natalie?

NAT
(just got realized)
Riiight… Hahahahaha…

She just realizes her flaws! And a bit panicking! Mr. Klerk is still
looking at her, but seems like he is a little bit offended yet kind of
agree by what she’s saying.

MR. KLERK
Well okay then. We’ll sit down first.

Mr. Klerk sits prudently, immediately followed by frightened Kris and Nat.

MR. KLERK
So, now you may start the questions, Miss.
Swagger.

NAT
Haha… Swagger, I like that. Okay… …

And Kris just can breathe out for that near-accident.

CASSIE

They slowly raise up their shirt again to close up their front part. And

SHAWN

And stop calling me that!

Jessica puts her stuffs into her bag, prepare to leave, and then walking
into the front yard. But then, she sees Bob is sitting at a front porch,
with an earphone plugging into his cell-phone. So, Jessica is walking
toward him first.

JESSICA
You know, it’s really comfortable tutoring
(MORE)
43 | P a g e  

 
 

JESSICA (CONT’D)
--without you bugging me and your brother
all the time. Making the condition feel
less-…bugger. You know what I mean?

Bob just looks at her, and smile properly, and looking at his cell-phone
back. Jessica feels the difference on his act.

JESSICA
Heh?... what’s wrong with you?

BOB
Nothing.

She feels a little weird by his sullenness. So, without making it look more
uncomfortable, she thinks she might be leaving sooner.

JESSICA
…Okay. …See ya.

And Jessica just start walking to the front yard, but before she even reach
her 5th steps, Bob is throwing some question.

BOB
So, who’s the guy?

And it makes Jessica turning back at him all over again.

JESSICA
…what?

BOB
…The guy. That you’ve been worried about.

Jessica tries to figure out his question first. And then, she starts to
realize something. And there it is, the taunting smile comes from Jessica.

JESSICA
Oh…
(taunting smile)
so you’ve been thinking about that this
whole time, huh?…
(slowly move closer)

Bob just looks around, try to avoid her tease. But it’s not stopping
Jessica thou.

JESSICA
…Are you being jealous now?..
(Teasing)
… You start to looove me… you wanna huuug
me… and then you kiiiss… me.

Bob is just watching her silly behavior.

44 | P a g e  

 
 

JESSICA
…but you still shut up so I’ll just stop
now… …

BOB
…he… you’re just un-believable.

JESSICA
(chuckling)
I am?.. Because….?

BOB
Because you just don’t look like a girl!
(chuckling)
Not even closer – with your muscular body,
studness, and that silliness! --

JESSICA
And now you’re back to mocking me…--

BOB (CONT’D)
But somehow you always got me curious.
(smile)

Jessica’s heartbeat starts a little faster after hearing Bob’s last line.

JESSICA
Er’… curious of what?...
(a bit blushing)

BOB
…curious of…

Jessica really waits for his answer. A long pause, then:

BOB
…of how will I get to trick you even
funnier than the last time.

And it just makes Jessica’s vein in her forehead grows a bit bigger.

JESSICA
Ah you are just annoying, you know that?

BOB
Haha… what? You think I would wanna say
something else to you?

Jessica just turns her body around all over again.

BOB
Probably you waited a line like I looove
you… I wanna kiiiiss you.
45 | P a g e  

 
 

JESSICA
What-ever!!

BOB
(laughing)
Be careful Sweetheart! Don’t let the bad
bugs!

Jessica just keeps walking further him while Bob is having his winning
laughing for making Jessica annoyed again. He just loves it..

INT. MR. KLERK’S OFFICE – AFTERNOON – CONT’D

Seems like things going on so well on the interview. They’re laughing


together!

MR. KLERK
You got that right! What’s the point of
volunteering some cash – for someone who
doesn’t even care to get paid?!

NAT
I know! Like – “oh please – pay me No
More!”

Hahahaha…!...

MR. KLERK
Well okay-okay, what’d you got in that
silly note again? Huh?
(cheery)

NAT
(looking at her note)
W’ oh there’s nothing silly anymore!

KRIS
He… I’m afraid that was the last question
Mr. Klerk.

MR. KLERK
Aww… when it’s just getting interesting??
Bummer!

NAT
I know! Haha…

MR. KLERK
Oh this has been the most fun interview
I’ve ever had. She’s a comedian!

NAT
Oh! Haha… well let me do my own stand up
comic, then.
46 | P a g e  

 
 

KRIS
She’s just brighten up our day, isn’t she?

MR. KLERK
Yes, she is!

NAT
Aww… You guys are too much.

MR. KLERK
Well I’m telling you, You gotta keep her,
Son. She’s gonna make a great reporter
someday.

NAT
You think?

KRIS
Well, she’s incredible.
(smiling at Nat)

NAT
(smiling back)
…thank’s.

MR. KLERK
Well okay then, it’s almost night. I gotta
get home faster to taste my wife’s
lasagna.
(rise up)

KRIS
Oh yes, Sir.
(get up)
really, it’s been a great time
interviewing you. Thank you for your time.

MR. KLERK
Oh, Thank you both.

They’re shaking hand together, one by one.

MR. KLERK
You definitely refresh my brain in this
busy afternoon. And say Hi to your
principle, okay? And study hard, you kids
have shining future.

KRIS & NAT


Thank You, Mr. Klerk!

CUT TO:

47 | P a g e  

 
 

Nat and Kris are walking at the front park, on their way to Kris’s
motorcycle, “Juppe”, that’s what he calls.

NAT
Gosh! It was so excited!.. He loved us!
(cheery)

KRIS
(chuckling)
He loved you.

NAT
What? No..! He loved you too.

KRIS
No, he… you completely stole the thunder.
And I’m not mad, because that tells us
that you were great at doing this.

NAT
Really?

KRIS
Yeah!.. You totally lighten up that
‘gloomy room’. You did a good job.
(smile)

NAT
Aww… Thank’s.
(smile happily)
I love interviewing!.. I wanna do it
again.

KRIS
(chuckles)
Well then, let’s do it again.

NAT
But that means I’m taking 2 jobs now,
editor and journalist. I should be paid
double then.

KRIS
You should! If, we got paid.

NAT
Ah, stupid school administration.

Kris just chuckles seeing Natalie’s spirit. And finally, they arrive at
Juppe’s parking lot.

KRIS
Wait a minute.

48 | P a g e  

 
 

Kris takes out his cell-phone, checking it out, and start dialing a number.

NAT
Who are you calling?

KRIS
Umm… Mary. She’s been miscalled me on the
interview. I gotta check her first.

Nat surely doesn’t like what she’s hearing, so she just looks around
avoiding him to see her frown face. So then, Kris calls up Mary now,
waiting for her to answer. And she’s answering.

KRIS
(on the phone)
Hey baby, I’ve just finished.. yeah.. we
had to wait for a couple hours…

Kris walks away bit, just to make sure that he doesn’t want to be heard.
But “super earring” Natalie, keep trying to hear that conversation.

KRIS
(on the phone)
…so you want me to be there with you?..
(flirty smile)
…Oh no, I completely agree, hehe…

Nat just rolls her eyes hearing that lame romantic conversation.

KRIS
(on the phone)
…well okay… bye-bye… wait for me…

So he turns off his phone connection, and starts to walk over Nat again.

KRIS
So, we’re going home now?
(taking his helmet)

NAT
Where else would we be?
(a little sound upset)

Kris looks over her, but she just gives him her corky smile just to make
sure that he doesn’t find out her displease. So, they’re just getting up a
motorcycle, and Kris started to turn on the machine. Natalie, who sits
behind him, is watching his back, wondering whether if Jessica really said
the right thing. Only one thing that she sure knows now, she doesn’t like
Mary at all.

FADE OUT

END OF ACT TWO

49 | P a g e  

 
 

ACT THREE

FADE IN:

INT. SCHOOL PAPER CLUB, LSHS – MORNING

SHAWN
She is thinking that I’m – GAY!!.. I’m
Gay!.. I’m all Gay!!..

Natalie, Jessica, and Kris are just looking at Shawn, a little bit shocked
and a little bit expected.

JESSICA
I knew it.

SHAWN
I’m Not confessing now!.. This is serious!
Is there any part of me that really tells,
“Gay alert”?! - Is it?!

JESSICA
Well… you could take off that vest.--

NAT
And scarf.--

KRIS
And the hat.--

SHAWN
W’ okay! I’m stylist! I’m in to fashion! I
know it! But that doesn’t mean that I’m –
Gay! Straight people do love fashion too!

JESSICA
Straight people do. Straight Guy, not
much!

SHAWN
Hey see me do the ‘rolling eyes’, which
means I do not care what you’re saying.

And Shawn gives his rolling eyes in slow-motion just to make sure Jessica
really gets it. The three of them are just chuckling seeing their friend
freaking out.
JESSICA
So why didn’t you just tell her?

SHAWN
Did you not listen to the story? Naked
Ladies – Confessing?! Which one did I have
to choose – As a straight guy! It’s like…
“Sophie’s Choice”! Kris?!

50 | P a g e  

 
 

KRIS
W’he… --
(thinking;a beat)
…well maybe confessing – I don’t wanna
make a bad name of myself.

SHAWN
W’ha… Th’that’s easy for you to say. You
just stare some chick so deeply in her
eyes and she’ll just throw all her clothes
right away!

KRIS
Owhow ya like that’s ever gonna happen.

Kris turns to Nat to get some agreement, doesn’t notice that Nat has
already been staring at him all the time. But luckily, Nat immediately
comes to her senses!

NAT
(conscious!)
… oh bbrrzz! Ha…

She acts weird, tell that she agrees. And Jessica notices Nat’s silly act
upon Kris. Nat also realizes that she’s being weird now… …

KRIS
Look,
(walking closer to Shawn)
(MORE)
KRIS (CONT’D)
--okay so you were lucky seeing them naked
yesterday, but anyway –
(whisper)
is Kellie really Double-D?

SHAWN
(whisper)
If the designer can create a Triple-D…--

KRIS
Wow, Seriously…--

JESSICA
Okay! Stay on a Main topic line Guys!

KRIS
Ehm, Ya anyway, just tell the truth to her
today, dude. You know… Meaghan’s such a
sweet girl, she’ll understand it and
forgive you right away.--

JESSICA
Yeah and she’s kinda dumb too…--

51 | P a g e  

 
 

SHAWN
Hey!!

Jessica is shocked with the yelling.

SHAWN
She may be dumb but she’s still the cutest
girl I’ve ever known.

And Jessica just rolls her eyes.

SHAWN
And how am I gonna tell her?!

KRIS
Well…
(walking to the doorway)
just true to your heart, man. Be honest.
She’ll know that you’re genuinely felt
sorry about the whole thing.

SHAWN
Yeah-yeah, you’re giving me an advice but
you’re walking away now. Where’re you
going?!

KRIS
(chuckling)
Lunch with Mary. See ya.

And Kris is just walking out of the door, leaving them three.

SHAWN
(sigh)
He sure has nothing to worry about chasing
after girl… they’re just drooling over him
like crazy…

JESSICA
You’re right. Just like the girl beside
me.
(pointing at Nat)

NAT
W’hh… okay would you stop that?
(get up from her chair)

JESSICA
Well you stared at him all the time!
You’re acting so silly in front of him,
for the love of God!
(chuckles)
Seriously Shawn, back me up here?

52 | P a g e  

 
 

SHAWN
Well I got enough problems in my life
right now. So I don’t really wanna play
along with this ‘Avoiding true feeling’
you girls are doing now.

JESSICA
What’d you mean ‘you girls’?!

SHAWN
You and Bob.

JESSICA
I’m not -- … Okay it’s not about me now!
This’s the time for teasing Nat. So aim
your mockery over her, okay?!

Nat just chuckles while photocopying something.

SHAWN
Well your girls’ problems are easy. Just
say it out loud, Nat! It’s really not a
bad thing that you start to like him. --

NAT
(turn around)
I do not like him! Can you just deal with
that?!

SHAWN & JESSICA


No!

NAT
Ah,
(rolling eyes)
well okay – IF I do start to like him –
then it’s too late! He’s already back with
Mary – and they seem really happier now
then ever. Did you even listen to him?
“lunch with Mary, Seya!”
(impersonate Kris)

And Nat start photocopying again, while Jessica and Shawn are waiting for
her to get realized.

After a beat, then:

NAT
…I do like him!

JESSICA & SHAWN


There you are!

And Natalie has come to her senses.

53 | P a g e  

 
 

NAT
Oh…

She lays back on a photocopy machine, frowning…

NAT
Well Okay!... I like him now but still!
It’s too late already!.. He’s back with
Mary now and they seem really happier ever
than before!.. Did I just retell that all
over again?

JESSICA
(chuckling)
Well, we’re just happy that you already
true to your heart.
(beat)
But yeah, you’re right. It is too late,
sorry.

SHAWN
You know, you’ll get over him. Just hoping
that it’ll come sooner. Okay?

JESSICA
Be strong.

Jessica and Shawn just get back to their activity, not even caring that
Nat’s still confusing her problem that have just been told to them.

NAT
(confuse)
W’Excuse me!? So that’s it??

Jessica and Shawn are turning over her again.

NAT
You just wanna hear me confessing that I
like him – that’s all?? Nothing more??

JESSICA
(thinking)
…yeah, why?

NAT
W’ well I thought that you could come up
with a solution! How do I have to deal
with this! Instead – you just, blow me off
and-and.. burying my desire!

JESSICA
Burying your desire?

54 | P a g e  

 
 

SHAWN
Well we did come up with a solution. “Just
get over it!”

NAT
Oh, okay – I’ve just confessed something
that-that probably huge for my love life –
and I have to get over it immediately!
That’s genius!
(sarcastic)

SHAWN
Well what’d you want us to do then??

NAT
Well I… I don’t know!..
(long pause)
…Maybe you should tell me to confess with
him forwardly. --

JESSICA & SHAWN


Oh No – no – no!...

JESSICA
You can’t do that.--

SHAWN
That’s forbidden.

NAT
What?! Why?!...

JESSICA
Because – like what you’ve said earlier!
He is with Mary now and the things are
really going so well between them! You
can’t just wreck them up by confessing to
Kris.

SHAWN
Yeah, and think about Mary. She has been
like, let down by Kris one time and I
don’t think she wanted to feel that again.

NAT
W’well…
(gagging)
…what about my feeling?!

JESSICA
What about it?

SHAWN
It’s just a crush, you’ll get over it as
soon as possible.--
55 | P a g e  

 
 

JESSICA
Yeah you just found out about it like, a
second ago. It really doesn’t mean that
much.--

NAT
(cutting)
Ah, you know what? You are not a very good
friend! Good friends are supposed to
support each other.

JESSICA
And good friends are supposed to remind
you what’s good or not.

SHAWN
Yep!--

JESSICA
And after all, you had your chance back
then. You should take it when you had it.

NAT
Oh ya How fool was I – not knowing that I
haven’t liked him at the time!--

SHAWN
(cutting)
Well what if Kris doesn’t feel the same
way with you now?

And that sentence make Natalie think about it for a while. Making Jessica
and Shawn wonder if she has thought all the advices that they said.

NAT
I’m gonna tell him.
(start leaving)

JESSICA
Oh no wait, Nat! --

NAT
Look I don’t care about his reaction
later, whether he’ll accept me or not…--

SHAWN
Seriously, that’s not a good idea--

NAT
(turn around)
Hey you’re the one who has woken up this
‘romantic feeling’ inside me – and you
just have to stay silently and take
responsibility for this, okay?!
56 | P a g e  

 
 

And she’s leaving the room.

JESSICA
(yelling)
W’ well we’ll make sure that you won’t do
that!

She after her to the doorway and seeing her walking.

JESSICA
Right?!
(look over Shawn)

SHAWN
(thinking)
…Yeah I have to tell Meaghan that I’m not
gay today. So, you’re on your own.
(walking)
Bye.

JESSICA
w’Hey!...

Shawn is also leaving Jessica, alone, and confuse, just sighing…

INT. SCHOOL CAFETERIA, LSHS – DAY – CONT’D

Kris is in the line to bring his lunch, alone. Nat sees that good
opportunity, and go right over him immediately.

NAT
Hey Wood, what’s up?

Kris’s a bit shocked as he looks over her.

KRIS
Hey.

NAT
Where’s Mary? I thought you said you wanna
have lunch with her. / does she cancel you
up?

KRIS
(chuckles)
No, she’s waiting in a Musical Room,
practicing her piano lesson. I’m bringing
her lunch there.

NAT
Oh howkay…
(rolling eyes)
er’ look I euh… I kinda have something to
tell to you. Now.
57 | P a g e  

 
 

KRIS
Yeah? What is it?

NAT
W’ here? What are we? Caveman?

KRIS
Well we can talk after lunch then. --

NAT
No – it can’t wait that long. --

JESSICA
(cut line between them)
Hey you guys! What are the chances –
meeting you up in here. Hahaha…

Jessica comes and tries to stop Natalie’s action.

NAT
Yeah, we’re not best-friend anymore.

JESSICA
I know, just try to help someone from
‘crazy people’ talking.

NAT
“hahaha” funny.

KRIS
Er’… … well anyway, girls. I really gotta
go now, Mary’s been waiting for me.--

JESSICA
Of course! Mary! Your Nice Girlfriend!
Soul-mate!
(exaggerating)

KRIS
(confuse look)
…I think you girls have to go out
sometime. You know, refreshing your mind..
Well Nat, I’ll catch you up later, okay?
See ya girls.

Kris is leaving them.

NAT
What? So you are the ‘Love Inspector’ now?
Trying to hold up people from screwing
their “Relationship”??

58 | P a g e  

 
 

JESSICA
Nat, seriously, you really have to think
this thru. Don’t you feel a little bit
sorry for Mary?

NAT
W’hey I told you – all I’m gonna do is
just confessing – we never know if Wood’s
gonna accept me or just blow me off. It’s
a fair competition.

They already bring their lunch, and start to walk.

JESSICA
Yeah except we know that he’s gonna accept
you.

NAT
He is?

JESSICA
Well you have been the love of his life,
it’s really a 50% chances that he could
fall for you all over again.

NAT
Really?

JESSICA
And I just realize that my last statement
is not making you even stepping back,
right?

It actually becomes more interesting to Nat.

JESSICA
And what is this place?! A refugee Camp?!
This place is like, flooded with hunger
people!

Yes, if you’re coming a little too late to cafeteria. Then you won’t ever
get the chance to find a place to sit. But luckily, the fortune still comes
to these ‘problem ladies’.

BOB
Hey Jessica! And her friend! Over here!

Bob is calling Jessica and Nat to have a seat with him and his sexy
friends, Matt, Evan, and Chace.

JESSICA
Ah, are you kidding me? I am so… boring
just to see him all the time yesterday. I
don’t think I wanna spend a time with him
today.
59 | P a g e  

 
 

NAT
(look at them)
Yeah but there’s also Chace in there, and
cute Matt, and Evan! They’re Hot! C’mon
let’s sit with them.
(wanna start walking)--

JESSICA
W’ hey,
(hold her)
okay - You just wanna sit with them just
because they’re Hot? How superficial are
you!--

NAT
Well I don’t care! I just wanna sit and
finish my lunch first before I get to my
confession time to Wood! Okay?!
(and she’s walking)

JESSICA
Ah, ego – bee-aatch.

And they arrive at a ‘Hot Guys table’.

JESSICA
Hello Guys.

BOB
Hello ladies. C’mon, let’s make some space
for these cute ladies.

They slide their seats to make Natalie and Jessica sit right in the middle
of them, surrounded by flat-chested tall guys.

EVAN ROSS DAVID


Looking good, Natalie…

Nat is smiling properly at them, and so are they. Then, she starts eating
her lunch.

BOB
So, how are you doing today?

JESSICA
Fine before I see you.

GUYS
Ohow-how…
(laughing)

MATT KUTCHER
Jessica, you always tell the truth in your
heart. I dig it.
60 | P a g e  

 
 

JESSICA
Thank you.

BOB
(a bit offended)
That’s just swell, isn’t it.

JESSICA
Well why don’t you ask my girl over here –
who’s by the way, looking for a guy and
not planning to do some confession to
someone.

GUYS
Ooh…

NAT
Oh great. So now you advertise me. Why
don’t you just write me on a board:
Natalie, Single, Cat Lovers.

EVAN
Well I’m a cat lover too, you know?

NAT
Evan you got 2 bulldogs in your house.

EVAN
I forgot we were in the same junior high
school back then.

Nat just smiles, cynically.

BOB
Well okay, why don’t you just pick one of
us? We don’t mind to sign up…

Bob is intentionally looking at Jessica, see if she was jealous. Jessica is


just staring back at him indifferently.

NAT
Oh, haha… no… you guys… are like, not my
type.
(low voice)

MATT
W’ Hot – is not your type? Are you a
lesbian? Cuz I do them too.--

NAT
W’ hey No!... I’m just…
(gagging)
… I’m more in to a kinda nerdy guy--
(MORE)
61 | P a g e  

 
 

NAT (CONT’D)
--you know… big glasses… wearing a school
sweater…

Unknowingly, some nerd guy who does wear a school sweater and sits in a
next table closer to her is listening to her.

NAT
Big words… love puzzle…
(giggling)
… with a tie on his neck…--

NERDY GUY
Ehm…ehm…

And everyone at the hot table are looking at him right away, who’s smiling
widely to Natalie…

NAT
… … er’ but still, …have a muscle and
always take care of his body…

And that nerdy just tries to show off his un-muscle arms…--

NAT
Ok, not you.

And Nat just wrecks that Nerdy Guy dreams in a second.

BOB
Well, if you’re talking about a smart guy.
Chace is the smartest among us.

Chace just gives his charming smile…

NAT
Oh no-no, he’s too pretty for me.

CHACE
Huh?

NAT
You know you don’t want people around you
saying, “Oh Natalie, you got a charming
boyfriend – How lucky you are.” Ah, I
don’t wanna be the one who’s lucky
(to Jess)
It should be the guy who’s lucky to be
with me…

JESSICA
Yeah you got the point…--

NERDY GUY
W’well.. I would be so lucky to have--
62 | P a g e  

 
 

NAT
(cutting)
Seriously – Not You!

NERDY GUY
… …

CHACE
W’he… I confuse, but I’m flaterred… But
you know what? You are also pretty, both
of you, so if there’s any guy who can be
with you, pretty or not, …he would be so
very lucky to have you…

JESSICA & NAT


(starring at him)
…Aww…
(blushing)

EVAN
Well how about me? Not too pretty but
still shabby, huh?...--

NAT
Evan you’re a player. You were taking most
of the girls’ virginity back in Junior
High School. And I don’t wanna be your
next victim.

EVAN
Damn it! It’s not easy to be with a person
who knows our record.

MATT
Well…
(flirty smile)
I’m not much of a “Player”--

NAT
Matt you’re worst than Evan! Did you know
that every girls here are calling you,
“Mr. Sleepover”? You’re sleeping over the
night and you’re just gone in the next
morning! Seriously, we work in a media, we
know all the dirty gossip inside you
“football guys”.

MATT
Oh Media… always meddling up our personal
life… But I kinda like that nick-name…
(imagining looks)

63 | P a g e  

 
 

BOB
(chuckling)
Well… so it all comes to me at the end. I
assume that I don’t really have much dirty
gossip around me, huh sweetie pie?...

NAT
Oh Robert… I’m never gonna choose you.

BOB
Huh? Why?

NAT
Because you’re Mrs. Carter now!--

JESSICA
What?--

BOB
What?--

3 GUYS
Oh!!.. Hahahaha…!...
(laughing)
she got that right – you are busted!...

BOB
Okay why Mrs?? Why shouldn’t she be the
one who’s called Mr. Klein?!--

JESSICA
Hey who wants that?!--

BOB
Relax it’s just hypothetically.--

JESSICA
Well hypothetically –I don’t want that
either!

BOB
Geez – what’s wrong with you being so
‘hotheaded’ like this?!--

JESSICA
Well what’s wrong with you being so
annoying like this?!--

BOB
Ah I just can’t believe with your
‘barbaric attitude’.--

JESSICA
Well who’s asking you to believe in it,
idiot!--
64 | P a g e  

 
 

While Jessica and Bob are still arguing each other, Nat just gets off of
her bench.

NAT
Ah, my lunch’s done. I think I’m gonna do
my plan now. Bye guys.

And Natalie just leaves, while those 3 other guys are just staring at Nat’s
walking away.

CHACE
She is strange…
(chuckling)

EVAN
But still got a nice ass…

MATT
I’m gonna be her “Mr. Sleepover.”

INT. CORRIDOR HALL, LSHS – DAY – CONT’D

Shawn walks thru the corridor hall looking for his little Miss. Perfect,
Meaghan. Unaware, people starts to notice him while he’s passing them off,
some girls are just smiling at him, but some guys are like avoiding bumping
with him. Shawn’s a little bit aware of it but he doesn’t really mind about
that. And by the time he’s walking and turning to the right hall, he’s got
his luck.

MEAGHAN
Shawn, Hey!

There she is, walking so perky with her two BFF, Kellie and Cassie.

SHAWN
Oh, Meaghan!
(cheery)

KELLIE & CASSIE


Hi Shawn!!...

SHAWN
Oh you two…
(unexcited)

The three of them are immediately grouping Shawn, holding him and making
him walk side by side with them.

CASSIE
Gosh, Shawn! We’ve been looking for you,
everywhere!

65 | P a g e  

 
 

KELLIE
There’s something we wanted to show you,
You’re gonna be like, freakin’ excited!...

SHAWN
Oh am I?... b’but Hey Meaghan, Meaghan?
Where are you?

MEAGHAN

Little Meaghan is walking behind them.

SHAWN
Why are you/ …
(turn around immediately)
er’ look I really gotta talk to you now.

MEAGHAN
Well okay, what is it?--

KELLIE
(cutting)
Talk later, we’re really got to change
now, we got cheerleading coming up. And
you’re coming too now.

SHAWN
Change? Change to what? What’d you mean
‘change’?
(start panicking)

CASSIE
What else do we mean? Hihi…

And them girls are slamming some door in front of them and showing some
room full of lockers.

SHAWN
Oh No.

Yes, it’s a locker Girl’s room.

CHEERLEADER
Hi Shawn!...

And most of them are almost naked.

SHAWN
Oh ya I think I’m gonna pass. --
(turn back again)

CASSIE
Hey? Where’re you going?
66 | P a g e  

 
 

SHAWN
Out.--

Meaghan is coming in already.

KELLIE
Well chill out in here, we’re totally cool
with it!

GIRL
(just wearing underwear)
Yeah Shawn, Gay guys are like our best
Buddies, they totally can compliment us
without wanting for sex after that.

Hahahahihihi… The girls are just giggling so sexy…

SHAWN
w‘Haha’
(freakin out)
Yeah but I really don’t feel good with
everyone moreover guys --
(making gay attitude)
--out there, they’re like gonna be soo
jealous with me if they found out that I’m
sticking here with the naked ladies.
Hahaha… So, Bye.
(start turning again)--

CASSIE
Oh that’s absurd (giggle), no one’s gonna
think that. C’mon.--
(pull him in)

And now Shawn is looking at Meaghan who’s ready to un-button her dress.

SHAWN
(panicking)
Owkaay!
(close his eyes)
I’m really gonna leave - Bye-bye girls!
(pulling the door knob)--

KELLIE
Shawn would you relax? Everyone already
knows that you’re Gay!

Shawn’s immediately SLAMMING off the door, making most of the girls turn at
him right away, including Meaghan who’s stopping to unbutton her dress.

SHAWN
What did you say?
(confront Kellie)
everyone? Everyone knows what??
67 | P a g e  

 
 

KELLIE
(bit scared)
Er’ ya you know… I - I know that you
wanted to make it a secret… but--

CASSIE
(cutting out)
She spilled it out at a lunch break,
everyone heard it.

SHAWN
What?!!

Shawn is freakishly shocking. Making all the girls wondering why…

SHAWN
So you mean everyone – Everyone – at
school knows that I’m Gay?!!

KELLIE
(long pause)
…I guess.

SHAWN
You guess??
(high-pitch tone)

KELLIE
W’well what’s wrong with that?! Look you
really need to come clean about your
sexuality sooner or later! Then you’re
gonna set yourself free..!

CASSIE
W’ ya! Just relax, nowadays everyone are
like so open minded. They’ll be like
totally cool and accept you being Gay Guy!

SOME GIRL
We’re totally support you, Shawn!

Meaghan is just watching at him, confusedly.

KELLIE
Yeah and you know what? Being gay is
actually Hot! They’ll be like a celebrity
– everywhere!

SHAWN
“A celebrity”?! Wow – wouldn’t want
anything more!
(sarcastic)

68 | P a g e  

 
 

KELLIE
Yeah! Right? you’re gonna be like so
awesome in this lamow school!

Girls are started to giggle again. Hahahihi…

CASSIE
Yeah you’re gonna love it! It’s like a
‘special privilege’ for you! --
(giggling)

SHAWN
Oh ya I totally will love it! IF I WERE
REALLY GAY!

Shawn is shouting at the top of his lung. The girls are slowly stopping
their giggles, and slowly start processing the last sentence that Shawn
deliberated.

CASSIE
…what?

SHAWN
(sigh)
I’m not Gay, I’m sorry.

The girls still quiet and try to think.

KELLIE
Ahaha… that’s a joke, right? Funny!...
hahaha…

The girls are confusedly chuckling.

SHAWN
A joke?? W’he… okay well let me ask you
girls something – What would a guy react
when he sees a bunch of Hot Ladies getting
naked in front of him?

GIRLS
…ahmm…
(a bunch of idiotic girls)

SHAWN
Ah for Heaven Sake, just see this.

And Shawn just open down his pants.

GIRLS
Huh?

And the girls look at the ‘thingy’ that stuck up inside Shawn’s underwear,
like a tower.

69 | P a g e  

 
 

Yes, “it” is on.

GIRLS
(breathing in)
… AAAAAaaaaaahh!!……

They start covering their body.

SHAWN
Now you get it… --
(put on his pants)

KELLIE
You – LIAR!!...
(outrageous)

CASSIE
Girls – Go Get Him!!
(Furious)

SHAWN
What? W’w’w’wait No--

GIRLS
AAAaaaaAAAAhhh!!!....!!!...

They start running after Shawn.

SHAWN
Oh Boy.

Brag!
Shawn SLAMS on a door and start running out of the room right away.

KELLIE
Don’t you Run Away!!...

GIRLS
AAAaaaaaAAAaaahh!!...

SHAWN
HeLP!!...

And Shawn is chased by bunch of sexy ladies around the corridor, making all
the heads turn around him immediately, probably stunned with many Hot girls
running behind him so furiously!

KELLIE
Stop that Pervert!!

And Shawn officially makes everyone pays attention to him being chased by
Hotties around the corridor!

Even Natalie who’s walking at a corridor is pushed away by them to the side
of the wall.
70 | P a g e  

 
 

NAT
Wow!... Shawn?...

And that weird parade has passed Natalie to the open sky.

Natalie just sigh looking at their ridiculous act, so she starts walking
again looking for some room that she wanted to bust in. She turns to the
right, still looking, and she finds it! Musical Room! So she starts to walk
to the front door, but…

At the tiny window door, she’s seeing Kris and Mary are kissing in front of
Piano, so smooth… very romantic… and peaceful. So she pulls back… and
starts lying back on the wall between the door and a locker. Re thinking
all the things that Jessica and Shawn told to her about not wrecking their
relationship… So she puts her head on a wall, exhaling so heavily…
wondering what has to do now… until:
The door’s open!

NAT
(shocked)
Oh no, --
(turning right away)

Brag!!
And… she’s BANGING the locker beside her.

PEOPLE
Ooh!!... --
(scrunching!)

MARY
Aah! --
(shocking;just got out)

KRIS
Wha…?!...
(follow her)

NAT
…that hurts.

And she FALLS down.

PEOPLE
Ow!...

KRIS
W’ Natalie?!!

FADE OUT

END OF ACT THREE

71 | P a g e  

 
 

ACT FOUR

FADE IN:

INT. HEALTH ROOM, LSHS – DAY – CONT’D

Natalie is conscious after her forehead got some bandage in a bump. She
already lays down in a health room’ bed.

NAT
…oh my God…

She moans and tries to get up.

MARY
Feeling better now?

Nat is a little bit shocking hearing that voice, so she looks over and
finds Mary is preparing some ice on a towel.

NAT
Mary??...
(mystified)

MARY
Yeah.

NAT
Why are you… where’s everyone?.. where’s
Wood?

Mary looks a bit unhappy when she calls her boyfriend, Wood. But she just
keeps that in mind.

MARY
…well he’s got a class now. And Jessica is
absenting you. While I suppose to train
some cheerleader in this period. But, it
doesn’t really matter, no one’s here to
watch you, so… I did.
(smile)

And Mary gives the ice-towel for Nat to use.

NAT
…you’re watching me?...
(take the ice-towel)
wow, isn’t that sweet…
(muttering - bit cynical)

She sigh and put the ice on her forehead. Mary knows that Natalie doesn’t
really appreciate her being there. So there comes an awkward moment…

72 | P a g e  

 
 

MARY
So umm, what were you doing anyway?
Standing in front of musical room? Why
didn’t you just… come in?

NAT
Oh. Umm…
(thinking)
… well I did wanna come, but I saw you
guys were.. smooching around, so I just
didn’t wanna bother you and… waiting for
you guys to stop in there.

MARY
Oh,
(giggling)
… well we actually didn’t mind if you just
cut our “act”, we were too often doing
that ‘thing’ anyway…

NAT
(jealous)
…of course you are.
(act cold)

Mary realizes that Natalie isn’t always being friendly with her.

MARY
Ehm, Look, Natalie. …I know that we always
didn’t come at the right term, you know…
always have something to fuss about, he…
But, …that doesn’t mean that I stop trying
to make friends with you.

NAT
(look at her)
…what?

MARY
Kris, …Wood I mean, is as just important
to you as I do. …So if he thought of you
as being his close-friend, just like to
Jessica and Shawn, …So I probably would
like to have the same opportunity… be
close with you guys …cuz that’s just gonna
make me feel so… happy and, more connected
with him in another level.

Nat is thinking about it, and she kinda finds that ridiculous.

NAT
Owkay,
(chuckling)
I’m sorry but I’m imagining us walking--
(MORE)
73 | P a g e  

 
 

NAT (CONT’D)
--together hand in hand right now – and my
other imagination starts shouting,
“Really??” haha…

MARY
(offended - sigh)
… sure--

NAT
Sorry-sorry,
(chuckles)
I don’t mean to… tease you up but… Look,
if Woo/ Kris really have… ‘strong feeling’
to you, despite all evil friends he has,
…trust me he won’t stop caring for you.

Mary just looks at her straight.

NAT
Look, all I’m saying is, you don’t have to
push it too hard try to make friends with
us, cuz no matter how, ..we’ll still
respect you for being his… girlfriend…
(look down)
… anyway…

Mary is now the one who do the thinking.

MARY
Ah You’re right…
(smile)
… you’re totally right! Gosh I’m so afraid
I have to call you a ‘patch-sister’ if we
really try to get along so hard.
(chuckling)--

NAT
Oh no way --

MARY
So freakishly weird, haha… --

NAT
Will never come up in my mouth, he…--

MARY
Ya – hello?? We never even have some
likeliness to each other! Haha… no
offence.--

NAT
Non taken, that’s True. Haha…--

74 | P a g e  

 
 

MARY
Ha… I knew that it was ridiculous, but I
said it anyway, he… I mean we would do
anything for a guy we love to make him
closer to us, right?

NAT
Er’he… ya…--
(realize)
what?..

And so does Mary, who just realizes that she spilled out the ‘L’ word.

NAT
…you love him?

MARY
(embarrassed ; close her
eyes)
Ah it just spilled out of my mouth –
anyway I haven’t told him directly that I…
(make a signal)
…So I’ll appreciate if you don’t tell him
first, okay?

Natalie now is torn in between, she really wanted to confess her growing
feeling to Kris, but in the other way, she knows that her feeling is still
not stronger than Mary’s.

NAT
…Okay.
(smile slightly) …

MARY
(smile)
… thank’s. …And now we’re ‘sharing each
other’.--

NAT
I know – stop it. Ha…

Nat is just confused right now.

INT. SCHOOL PAPER CLUB, LSHS – DAY

Jessica tries to take care of Shawn’s wound for getting beat down by the
Hot Cheerleaders, while Kris lays back on a desk, crossing his hands, and
watching them.

JESSICA
Seriously, this’s hilarious…
(chuckling)
You’re totally gonna be in our headline
news. “GAY GUY is punished for not being
GAY.”
75 | P a g e  

 
 

KRIS
(laughing)
Haha… that’s a good line, we’ll use that.

SHAWN
Yeah just making fun of me, while I’m
soaking up with my misery right now…
(sigh)

JESSICA
Well it’s your own fault, so God is
punished you thru those ladies. Just Thank
God that they didn’t kill you after all.
(chuckles)

And then the door’s open, and Natalie comes in with handling the ice on her
forehead.

KRIS
(stand straight
immediately)
Nat! You’re okay now?

NAT
(look at Kris)
…Ya – No problem.

KRIS
Well we were about to visit you there
after she’s done nurturing him.

Shawn is rolling his eyes, Jessica just chuckles.

NAT
Oh ya – what was that all about? “Hot
Girls chasing Gay Guy Parade”?
(sitting down)

Hahaha… Jessica and Kris are laughing.

JESSICA
That’s a good line too!

NAT
So they were like, mad at you for being
honest?

JESSICA
Well they wouldn’t be that mad if he
wasn’t confessing it in a Locker Girl’s
Room.--

KRIS
Literally. --
76 | P a g e  

 
 

JESSICA
And “physically”.

Nat is just processing their assertion…

NAT
… … oh Shawn I’m so happy for you… You
Gone Wild!

Jessica and Kris are just laughing to hear Nat’s mockery.

SHAWN
(sigh)
Well serious Guys, how am I gonna deal
with this? ‘Enlighten’ me! Meaghan
definitely won’t ever talk to me anymore…
I can see her face so disappointed…

JESSICA
Well you really gave her some emotional
damage to remind of
(chuckles)

SHAWN stares her straight …

JESSICA
Stop joking. Done.

KRIS
(chuckles)
Well, what else can you do? Just go, talk
to her. / Just the two of you without… her
friends to bother around. She’ll
understand.

SHAWN
You think she’s gonna forgive me?

KRIS
Not sure for that.

SHAWN
Gee… thank’s for the honesty.
(cynical; sigh)
well what’d you think Nat? Should I talk
to her?

NAT
(thinking)
…well you already spill it all out. So why
stopping there? You might as well
explaining to her.

77 | P a g e  

 
 

SHAWN
…well yeah I’m already embarrassed… so why
don’t I just complete the day off.

NAT
You’re gonna be fine…
(smile)

SHAWN
(teary)
…you are the greatest cousin ever…
(too touchy)

JESSICA
Over…
(un-trust face)

NAT
I know.
(smile proudly)

Kris chuckles.

SHAWN
And she’s not good at taking care of
people. --

JESSICA
You ungrateful son of a gun.
(poke him)--

SHAWN
Ouch!

NAT
(chuckling)
Well let’s just go home now, I really need
to rest my forehead right away.
(get up)

JESSICA
Foreheads, plural. You got two now.
(mocking)

NAT
“haha” Funny.

KRIS
Oh ya Nat, what was the thing you wanna
talk about earlier?

NAT
Oh, …

Shawn and Jessica are just prepared for their ears to listen to her.
78 | P a g e  

 
 

NAT
(pause)
…nothing, actually. Somehow I just forgot
about that,
(nervous chuckle)
…mostly because my memories have been
transferred to that ‘damn’ locker…

Shawn and Jessica are a bit surprised hearing her answer.

KRIS
Oh,
(chuckles)
well you really gotta take a rest then. So
Alrite guys, I’m off to my band rehearsal
now. See ya on Monday!

NAT, JESS, SHAWN


Bye…

Kris has left the room.

JESSICA
Well…
(get up)
I guess we have learned our lesson now. We
really need to be banging your head off
for making you a better person!

Nat just gives her an indifferent smile.

SHAWN
(smile & get up)
Well I’m gonna be off too. Gotta fix all
the chaotic I’ve made today. So, lock the
door and… see ya ladies.

Shawn also leaves the room.

JESSICA
(shakes head ; chuckling)
Come on.

And the girls also start to walk out.

JESSICA
So, what’s with the sudden change of heart
then?

NAT
(locking the door)
Well… just embracing the fact.

79 | P a g e  

 
 

JESSICA
What fact?

They start to walk each other.

NAT
…the fact that My feeling to him is not
even big enough… compare to Mary’s.

JESSICA
Oh, you both talked?

NAT
Yeah. Why did you leave her and make her
stay with me at the health room?

JESSICA
(chuckles)
Well you know what? It’s really for the
best. You’ll find out that it’s only a
crush you got now to him.

NAT
Yeah I guess… --
(lazy chuckles)

BOB
Well here comes the barbaric lady.

By the time the girls walk out of the doorway, Bob and his ‘football gang’
are just hanging out in there at the porch.

JESSICA
(upset)
Uurgh, I’m not gonna deal with this
anymore…
(low voice to Nat)

So they just keep walking, but Bob can’t just let her go away like that.
So, Bob block her off of the front.

BOB
Hey I guess someone already thinks as a
loser now.

JESSICA
(sigh)
You know what? I’ve had enough with your
childish game, alright? So just, buck off
now.

FOOTBALL GUYS
Ooh…
(watching them)

80 | P a g e  

 
 

BOB
Well I never thought of it as a “childish
game”. It’s a “teenage game” actually.
We’re teenager.—
(cynical)

JESSICA
Whatever… --
(wanna start walking)

BOB
(block her)
What? You don’t have anything to make fun
of me anymore?

Nat just follows Jessica’s movement.

JESSICA
Bob –
(hold her upset)
just – cut it off, okay?

BOB
Aww… so what? You’re gonna beat me up if I
don’t stop it? “Barbaric Girl”?

JESSICA
HEY!!!

Jessica is yelling at him at the sudden. Making people all around them are
just staring, even Nat is shocking listen to her shout at the nearest
place. And Bob just shut up.

JESSICA
(yelling)
I told you that I don’t wanna be your
Girl-Friend!! Enough with the stalking!! I
can even hear you breathing on a phone for
God Sake!! So stop Bugging my life – and
find Other Girl to be stalked - You
Pathetic creepy Jerk!! I am soo blowing

Everyone GAPS immediately!!

Bob is just widening his eyes, can’t believe what he’s been heard of,
Natalie and the football guys are just holding their laugh. Jessica really
gets him off now.

EVERYONE
What a loser… so lame…

Bob starts gagging, feel really confused – embarrassed and upset at the
same time.

81 | P a g e  

 
 

JESSICA
(make a winning smile)
…so would you excuse me.
(start walking again)

NAT
Be tough, Bob.

following Jess)

MEAGHAN
A pervert?--

SHAWN
No! I like you!

A beat. Meaghan actually didn’t thought about that.

SHAWN
(sigh)
…I Like You.

Meaghan is looking down.

SHAWN
…that’s why I, I always acted so silly in
front of you… complimenting you but but..
always afraid to think what’s the next
word I have to tell to you… I’ I’m just
too nervous to be around you… Cuz I really
think you’re the sweetest person I’ve ever
known in my life…

Meaghan is a bit flattered by that, she’s blushing a little bit.

SHAWN
…look I’m just saying that… I’m really
sorry cuz I… I don’t wanna stop hanging
around just to be near you. …I really like
you.

MEAGHAN
(thinking)
…well… … I like you too.

How about that?

MEAGHAN
(giggling)

SHAWN
It is, It’s gonna be fun! Although you’re
gonna be walking with a straight guy now,
haha…

And now, Meaghan can start smiling again.

SHAWN
…so umm… you forgive me now?

Meaghan looks at him, and then gives him her sweetest smile.

MEAGHAN
…of course I do…

SHAWN
(smile relieve)
…well I’m glad.

And then Meaghan is holding his hand. Making Shawn a little more nervous.

MEAGHAN
Thank you, Shawn. ..for liking me…

SHAWN
…you’re… welcome?

MEAGHAN
(smile)
See ya…

So, Meaghan is leaving him. Even thou Shawn is a little bit disappointed
for being rejected but, he is just glad that Meaghan is not hating her.

FADE TO:

INT. NATALIE’S BEDROOM – NIGHT

Natalie, as usual, sits on her sofa at her tiny balcony in front of her
room. Already in her pajamas and wearing her glasses, she’s listening to
some music on her iPod. But suddenly, someone is flicking her cheek. Making
her shocked and turn her head around. And there she finds…

KRIS
So serious.
84 | P a g e  

 
 

Natalie is totally shocking to see Kris is standing in her window (also a


way to the balcony).

NAT
Wood, what are you doing here??
(take off the ear-phone)

KRIS
(climb up the window)
Well, I was from the county market, but
then I’m passing your house, so…
(sitting beside her)
as a good friend, I wanna visit you to see
how you doin’ right now.

NAT
Oh isn’t that sweet?...

KRIS
Everyone calls me that.

Nat just chuckles. A silent first, then:

NAT
So where’s the drawing book?--

KRIS
(cutting off)
You know me too well.

Kris is searching to his bag, and taking out some drawing book to Nat.

NAT
So what’s the task now?
(sitting directly at him)

KRIS
Making some cubicles painting, I don’t
know… I always suck at this.

NAT
Haha… You know, people must know that you-
(MORE)
NAT (CONT’D)
-have some slackness. Trust me, if girls
find out that you never draw by yourself –
they’re just gonna be like so devastated..

KRIS
Haha… Oh come on, I’m not that likeable.

NAT
No, you’re ‘loveable’.
(act cynical)
85 | P a g e  

 
 

KRIS
(laughing)
Yeah sure, they just don’t know me well.
Just look at you and Jessica, you’re not
joining in to ‘Kris-aholic’.

NAT
(laughing)
Yeah Jessica definitely won’t be
interested.

KRIS
I know, he… I mean, why would they like me
anyway?

NAT
er’he… Well…

Natalie knows that Kris is really not making some question there, but she
kinda like wanted to answer it, so Kris is waiting for her to speak.

NAT
Well I actually don’t know. Haha…
(nervous laughing)

KRIS
I knew it, hehe… well anyway,
(take out some book)
so this’s the example of the draws, you
can--

NAT
(cutting)
Maybe because you’re sweet…

KRIS
(not very listening)
What?

NAT
You’re so… friendly and… kind… and..
.charming.

KRIS
…er’he… you think?

NAT
And humble too…

KRIS
Haha… well, thank you I guess,

NAT
Yeah… that’s just why I like you. He…
86 | P a g e  

 
 

A beat.

Natalie is shocking. Kris is even shocking. They just look at each other.
