- What Matters
(A school picnic table area. A group of boys chuckle, pushing a guy from the group to the direction of a girl sitting on a bench)
I double dog dare you!
(Takes out Five dollars)
(In a loud whisper)
You really think I’m going to go for give bucks!
(He plants his feet firm on the floor as they pushed him)
(Boy 2 groans and takes out twenty dollars)
(The boys give a cheer. Luis walks towards the girl with hands in his pockets.)
(His voice cracks)
(Girl looks up from her book lifting a brow)
(Luis looks around and then shows her his phone. Emma looks at the blank phone and sees nothing. Emma looks back at Luis with a questioning look. Luis then shakes his phone.)
(Crosses her arms)
There’s something missing inside.
(Clears his throat)
(C***s her head)
Somebody’s number? Not like I want your number or anything! I think I lost my mom’s number.
(Looks at his phone)
(Group of boys chuckle in the background)
He’s messing up so bad.
(Distance sound of endless chuckles)
(Puts phone away)
Are you done?
(Luis shakes his head)
Here I am, now what are your other two wishes?
Can I have your number?
(Chuckles in the background get louder)
I’m missing my number so can I have yours?
Is this some kind of joke?
Uh…um. Oh! Are you a library card? Because I’m checking you out?
(Burst of boys laughter comes from far behind the two)
Are you just thinking of random pick up lines?
Well if that’s how you want to play it then fine!
(Emma cuts him off)
Did it hurt when you fell from heaven? Because it sure looked like it did.
(Luis steps back)
(Emma cuts him off again)
I think I’ve fallen in puppy love. Oh, I thought you were a dog, never mind.
(Boys “ooh” on the background)
Oh dear lord. You are proof that god has a sense of humor.
(Boys scream in laughter)
Let me ask you something. Are you always so dumb, or just when I’m around?
It was a dare! I was just kidding!
Well that explains the laughter.
(Crosses her arms and looks behind him)
I was just kidding.
(Emma takes out a notepad from her bad and writes something on it.
This is the closest you’ll get to a women’s number.
(Rips out a sheet of paper and hands it to Luis)
(Luis grabs paper and Emma walks away. Luis walks to group of boys with paper in his hands.)
Tell us what she put!
(Luis opens paper)
“Write down your mom’s number and there you go! The farthest you’ll get to a women’s number.”
(The boys screamed with laughter and patted Luis on the back)
