Waiting for the Bus

EXT. BUS STOP – DAY

Three boys wait at the bus stop dressed for school. They are TOBY (14), GLEN (14), and SPENCER (14).

TOBY
Just hangin’ with my boys at the bus stop. Monday morning and I’m hangin’ with my bros. Aww, I missed you guys over the weekend.

Toby puts an arm around each of the guys.

GLEN
That’s good dude, now let us go.

Toby squeezes them harder.

TOBY
I just missed you guys!

Toby lets them go.

TOBY (CONT’D)
You know who sucks? My Mum. I was stuck with her all weekend. She wouldn’t know what fun is if it hit her in the face with a water balloon. I actually did hit her in the face with a water balloon, it was pretty awesome. So what did you guys do on the weekend?

SPENCER
We went to-

GLEN
We didn’t do anything. Pretty boring.

SPENCER
But-

Glen gives Spencer a hard glance.

SPENCER (CONT’D)
Oh, yeah, we didn’t do anything.

TOBY
What’s going on here? What are my bros up to?

SPENCER
(panicked)
We hung out without you!

GLEN
Spencer!

TOBY
You what? Hung out without me? Why? Is it because you didn’t want to see my Mum? She is the worst!

GLEN
No, Toby, it’s not that.

SPENCER
Yeah, I like your Mum.

TOBY
(confused)
Is it because you were planning a surprise for me?

GLEN
Why would we be planning a surprise for you?

TOBY
I don’t know. Sometimes bros just plan really sweet surprises for their bros.

GLEN
No they don’t. See this is part of the problem. You’re too needy! You want our attention all the time.

TOBY
Not all the time. Just whenever we’re together, and maybe sometimes when we’re not. You know, just be thinking of me, when I’m away.

GLEN
Don’t you see how exhausting that would be for us!

Toby thinks.

TOBY
No.

GLEN
Argh! You’re impossible!

TOBY
Okay, okay, I get it. You’re pissed and, although I don’t really get why, let me make it up to you. What can I do?

GLEN
Okay, well…for the rest of the day you can’t talk about yourself or anything to do with you.

TOBY
Okay, deal.

GLEN
Good.

The bus pulls up. Toby turns to Spencer.

TOBY
Wait, you really like my Mum?

GLEN
Well, that took about five seconds.

Glen gets on the bus.

TOBY
Wait! Let me try again! Dammit, Mum! Why do you ruin everything?
