Not Gangsta

EXT. CITY STREET – NIGHT

AMY (22) and SIMONE (22) both dressed in going out attire walk tipsily down a well lit city street, the occasional car goes past them.

AMY
That was a killer night. Did you see my moves on that d-floor? I owned that thing.

SIMONE
Amy, your moves were ridonculous, but keep it down alright. I would like to get home without us being attacked.

AMY
Sim, we’re not going to get attacked out here, and if we do I’ll just take care of business, if you know what I mean.

Amy gives Simone an exaggerated wink.

AMY
I mean I’ll punch them with my fists in case that wasn’t clear.

SIMONE
Ames I love you, and you’re beautiful, but you’re an idiot. You would be useless if we were attacked.

AMY
Hey look at this.

Amy flexes one of her skinny arms

AMY (CONT’D)
I did ten push ups the other day.

SIMONE
Girl push ups?

AMY
Well yeah. But people know me, you know. They know not to mess with me.

SIMONE
Ames, I feel like I have to tell you this but you’re not gangsta.

AMY
What? How can you say that? I’m totally gangsta. My education came from the school of hard knocks… and Melbourne girls grammer and TAFE. But I’m hard. You know I’m hard.

SIMONE
No you’re not. You’re incredibly soft. I think even I could beat you up.

AMY
No way. I’m from the streets alright. I know things you don’t.

SIMONE
We literally grew up on the same street.

AMY
Sure, but I feel like I spent more time kicking around the streets. I was basically a hooligan.

SIMONE
The only street you hung around was Thomsons Street, and that’s because the bakery there would sometimes give you free pastries.

AMY
Oh my god yes, those pastries were amazing. I would totally gun a fool down to get my hands on one of those pastries.

SIMONE
See now that I believe. You do get weirdly gangsta when food is involved.

From an alleyway behind them a noise is heard, like a can being kicked. The two girls looks at each other in fright.

AMY
RUN!

Amy sprints down the street, Simone a step behind her.
