Modern Romeo&Juliet Story: Fav Scene

I`ve started a new screenplay and I plan on making it into a movie (eventually). As I re-read over it the other day, a particular scene that resonated with me so strongly, it resonated with me when I wrote it as well. It is a powerful scene and it quickly became my favorite.

So here it is!

Enjoy!!

INT. HOUSE-NIGHT

A man opens a bottle of whiskey and pours it into a glass. He grabs the glass, turns toward the window and takes a slip.

INT. HOUSE- NIGHT

Tatsuya enters his home. He passes a room and stops. He notices the light on in the neighboring room and enters.

 

Tatsuya

                 二度ともどらないよ。(I`m not going back there again)

     Tsumiya

        Welcome home, son.

 

Tatsuya`s father, late 40`s, menacing, turns around with a glass of whiskey in his hands. His knuckles are bloodied.

                      Tatsuya

                 I`m not going back.

                      Tsumiya

                 Yes you are.

Tsumiya takes a swig of is glass and slams it down on the table.

                      Tsumiya

I`m soon going global and I want you at the forefront. And no one speaks Japanese outside of Japan.

      Tatsuya

You forget that I can already speak English.

      Tsumiya

           (pours himself another glass)

Like a 2 year old. Ever since we came back from America 10 years ago you don’t speak it anymore. And we live in Tokyo of all places. The city of countless opportunity. You let your ability to go to waste and I wonder why.

Tatsuya

                 Is that so.

Tsumiya stops mid-way from sipping his glass.

Thudding sounds comes from the room behind them.

Tsumiya finishes his glass.

                      Tsumiya

Japan is falling and I`m not going to let everything that I`ve built fall with it. Kids these days think they can do whatever they want without being checked. They`re going get checked today.

Tsumiya straightens his suit jacket and cracks his knuckles. More thudding sounds are heard.

 

                      Tsumiya(cont.)

I have a plan and you`re a part of that, whether you like it or not.

Crying sounds.

                      Tsumiya (cont,)

                 I`ve got some business to attend to.

He puts his hand on Tatsuya`s shoulder.

                      Tsumiya (cont)

You can join if you like. Get a taste of your future.

Tatsuya steps out from under his father`s hand. Tsumiya walks out.

                      Man (V.O.)

                 No, no, no. Please! I sorry! NO-!

The sound of crushing bone stifles the screaming until it stops all together.

*************************************************************************

 

This is a story about a girl that loves to be happy despite the cruelties thrown her way. She enjoys walks in dark alleys and ordering large pizzas and finishing them by herself. She`s used to being alone and has become comfortable with it; however, that all changes when she met a man during her first full-time job. They both hung out a few times taking turns in asking each other out. As they hung out she would became more and more comfortable with having someone around–something she wasn`t used to before. One day, they meet up after work for dinner. It was like all the other times that they hung out. They laughed, learned and lingered. She likes him and he likes her. They both were walking towards the station and once they got to the ticket gate, he turned to her and said:

 

Guy

Well… this is my gate.

 

Girl

Yea…

 

Both want to stay longer but don`t want to cause the other to miss their train.

 

Guy

When you`re free next let me know. We still gotta do that Star Wars night.

 

Girl

Yea definitely! It won`t be for another two weeks though…

 

Guy

No problem! It`ll make the night all that more exciting.

 

Girl

(laugh)

Yea.

 

Guy

Well, I gotta catch the train.

 

The girl gives him a look that any man would know the intent.

 

Girl

Come here.

 

The girl walks off and begs for him to follow. She tries to find a nook in the open-spaced train station. She finds a pillar that shuts them off from most of the human traffic.

 

Girl

Kiss me.

 

Guy

I think you`re forgetting something. PDA isn`t something I`m comfortable with.

 

The girl steps close towards them—noses almost touching.

 

Girl

Being with people wasn`t something I was comfortable with…. Until you came along.

 

Guy

(smirks)

Really?

 

Girl

Yea. Now kiss me.

 

The guy kisses her. They hold for a second then release.

 

Guy

Now I really got to go.

 

Girl

Wait a second. You`ve got a little…

 

She reaches out with her fingers and tries to remove the lipstick staining his lips.

 

Girl

There. (smiles) Go! You don`t want to miss your train don`t you?

Guy

Yea.

 

He starts to leave still facing her.

 

Guy

Don`t forget to let me know when your free, okay?

 

Girl

Yea.

 

They wave goodbye to each other. She watched him leave then she heads to the station exit.
