Cutting Roses

By Christine G

07-

[Black Screen. The starting credits are rolling]

Anna (Voice Over)

I can still close my eyes and see those summer days, smell and feel everything. It's so real sometimes I have to open my eyes to prove I'm really not there. So careless we all were, reckless with responsibilities, so capable of falling in love... love strong but true, real. I was innocently in love with a boy that loved me back. That summer I thought I needed him to escape, to forget, to start dreaming - start living, and maybe he needed me to in those ways or others but whatever it was though it worked, we fit. I lived that summer unlike any other. I smiled and laughed and screamed and cried harder than I ever have! And I loved him... it was who i was then that made me who I am today and it's those choices i made that are now making me choose. Forget those feelings of love or accept the fact that the feeling that were created in the summer of 1997 were only one of a kind.

[Fading from black screen to Scene 1- Summer of 1997 sky view of a bridge in Springfield. three girls standing on it]

Rachel

For God sakes Anna, jump already!

Amanda

I think shes too afraid

Anna

Its too black there are rocks and I don't want to hit any of them. You both are insane!

Rachel

Did someone put giant rocks down there? Cause there wasn't any this morning.

Anna

Well I don't want to die. Sorry for wanting life.

Rachel

You are not going to die! Don't be so dramatic It's like super tiny!

Amanda

Yeah! You can step off the edge with one foot and touch the bottom

Anna

(looking down) What bridge do you think were on?

Amanda

Rachel just get her to drink some more and then we can just push her in.

Anna

Jesus Amanda - this is why I don't drink with you!

(Amanda takes her top off - Anna and Rachel just look at her)

Rachel

Why the hell are you taking off your shirt?

Anna

(laughing and pretending to look around) Is there a guy I missed or is she so horny we're in trouble

(Amanda gives Rachel and Anna the finger as she runs and jumps off the bridge)

Rachel

Well... I think it's safe to say that she's cut off

(Both Rachel and Anna look over the side of the bridge)

Rachel

Are you ok?

Anna

Isn't that the understatement of the night

Rachel

(directs a sour look towards Anna and then peers over the bridge)

AMANDA!

Amanda

WHAT! YOU GUYS ARE SO STUPID THROW ME A BEER!

Rachel

(facing the road talking to Anna) I can't believe that just happened

Anna

(sitting on the wall with her back to the water and watches an upcoming car) And you get mad at me for not doing that.

Rachel

I could push you in right now if I wanted to

Anna

Do it and die.

(As the girls fight the car comes pulling up on the other side of the road, Tom opens the door and slams it into the wall.)

Mike

Watch it!

Tom

(laughing like its the funniest thing he has ever done) Im soo sorry dude ill buy you a new one promise.

Anna

(nudging Rachel) look Rache, its your drunk boyfriend

Rachel

(turning around) Drunk EX boyfriend (walks toward Tom) I thought we agreed on taking some space from each other?

Tom

(looks around and laughs) I thought this bridge was for the public? Or are you the troll that lives under it?

Rachel

Your such a douchebag! God I don't even know why I put up with you for 7 months!

Mike

Tom we should probably go

Tom

(to Mike) Mike! I got this (turning to Rachel and smiling) you knew I would be here tonight and you just couldn't stay away (puts his arms around her waist)

Anna&Mike

Hey!

Rachel

(slaps Tom in the face) SCREW YOU, YOU BASTARD!

Tom

ANYTIME ANYWHERES BABY!

(Rachel slaps him again and the two start yelling back and fourth at each other)

Amanda

Is that Tom?

Anna

What gave it away?

(Tom gets sidetracked from the fight and goes to lean over the bridge)

Tom

Amanda?

Amanda

What are you doing here?

Tom

Did you hear? Me and Rachel are back together!

Rachel

(goes over beside Tom and leans down) NO! (looks at Tom) were NOT!

Tom

(ignoring Rachel) So I guess its true, you can lead a whore to water and make her jump in it too!

Amanda

I don't know about that, your not in the water yet (laughs)

Tom

(to Anna and Rachel) Shes drunk right?

Rachel

Why? Wanna sleep with her?

Tom

(ignoring the comment Talking to Anna) Why don't we join her?

Anna

No.

Mike

Tom you can barely stand

Tom

All the more I should be swimming

Rachel

Can you just go?

Tom

Ladies first.

(Tom goes towards Rachel who pushes him off her. Mike tries to grab Tom but Tom stumbles into Anna and knocks her backwards. Anna screams and tries to stop herself from falling but can't, Mike sees this and pushes Tom out of his way and grabs one of Anna's arms and pulls her off the bridge wall where she tumbles on the ground shaking. Rachel rushes over to her.)

Rachel

Oh my god! Anna are you all right?

(Anna can't speak shes so stunned)

(to Tom) see you jackass see why everyone hates you! You are such a tool when you drink!

Tom

Anna i'm sorry. I-

(Anna waves her hand to stop him from saying anything else)

Mike

(helps Tom up to his feet) We should probably get going before people start trashing the house

Rachel

Yes Tom go back to your party where you can just drink your face off and sleep with all those girls who you couldn't sleep with before! Go live your life and leave me alone!

(Tom looks back at Rachel with a sad look and then stumbles into the car and the boys drive away. Anna and Rachel sit with their backs on the wall. Anna seems to be able to talk now.)

Anna

He didn't mean to hit me

Rachel

But he did.

Anna

That doesn't really matter though, you two really need to stop fighting and either be together or move on.

(Rachel looks away almost as if she didn't hear Anna)

Amanda

Hey guys! I don't mean to bitch but i'm really cold.

(the girls look over to see Amanda sitting on a rock by shore)

Rachel

Were coming to get you now (Rachel and Anna stand up and walk towards the parked car just off the bridge) (To Anna) Your right you know, that's why I hate it.

(the shot goes back to sky view and the words CUTTING ROSES come onto the screen)

[End of Scene 1]
