“We`re Done!”

By

INT. KITCHEN- DAY

Charley is sitting across the table, arms crossed, pouting.

Her leg shakes.

She gets up and strides the kitchen, back and forth.

CHARLY stops and looks ahead.

       CHARLEY

       I want a break.

       (pause)

I just can`t take this anymore. Do you know what you do to me? What others are saying about me?

Silence.

Fed-up, she rests both her hands on the nearby sink. Head fallen.

                     CHARLEY (cont.)

       I wanted to make this work. Physically, I tried, soooo hard.

              (head rises)

       But after a while… one gets tired of trying.

CHARLEY moves from the sink back to her seat. She looks straight ahead, more intensely.

                     CHARLEY (cont.)

The funny thing is, is that you don`t have anything to say. While I`m out here busting my ass to achieve something, you pull me right back in. Every time I tell myself `Enough` you always pop out of nowhere.

              (leaning towards the table, finger pointed)

Well, I`m here to tell it straight to your face: `Enough is finally damn enough”.

She pulls back. Arms refolding.

                     CHARLEY (cont.)

Now….only if you had legs I would tell you to get the hell outta here.

CUT to the other side of the table and JUNK FOOD sprawled all over the table.

                     CHARLEY (cont.)

       You know what? If you won`t leave, I will!

She marches out of the kitchen. A door slams.

JUNK FOOD lays on the table, alone.
