After the Fact

EXT. WALDEN’S FARM – NIGHT

A party is currently in full swing. Teenagers are drinking, smoking, and passing out all over the lawn. Off to the side by a large fire drum is MITCH, 17, king of the school. He talks and laughs with TWO GUYS. FIONA, 17, opinionated, grunge girl, not one of the cool kids but undeniably pretty, storms over to them. She turns to the two guys standing with Mitch.

FIONA
Go. Now.

OTHER GUY #1
Whatever bitch.

FIONA
NOW!

The two guys walk off, grumbling. Fiona turns her scorn to Mitch.

FIONA (CONT’D)
What the fuck!

MITCH
What?

FIONA
What! What do you think?

MITCH
I think you need a drink.

FIONA
So we can repeat what happened last time? I don’t fucking think so!

MITCH
Woah. Chill out.

FIONA
Don’t tell me to chill out. You don’t get to say that after what happened. After you just left me like that!

MITCH
What’d you want me to do? Give you a cuddle?

FIONA
FUCK YOU!

A few people look over towards them.

MITCH
(lowering his voice)
Seriously, cool it, we don’t need to make some big scene here.

FIONA
What if I want to make a scene huh?

MITCH
Alright, alright, you got me okay? I’m listening.

FIONA
Good, because not only were you a complete arse that night but you haven’t spoken to me since it happened. What the fuck?

MITCH
Look I just needed to get my head around it okay? Figure my shit out. What’s the big deal?

FIONA
The big deal! The big deal is aliens gave us fucking superpowers!

MITCH
Lower your voice! Fuck!

FIONA
I don’t want to lower my voice. I want everyone to know what a piece of chicken shit you are. How you fucking left me to die with fucking aliens!

Mitch pushes Fiona away from the crowd of people into a nearby paddock.

MITCH
Look, I’m sorry okay! I, I freaked out. Aliens had you floating in a sack of goo for Christ’s sake. What’d you want me to do?

FIONA
Not fucking run away that’s for sure! Fuck!

MITCH
You’re right. You’re right, I’m an arsehole, okay?

FIONA
Damn straight you are.

Beat.

MITCH
So what can you do?

Fiona looks around.

FIONA
I’ll show you, but not here. Come with me.

Fiona walks into a nearby area of bush. Mitch looks over his shoulder, then follows.
