Fallen by the Wayside: Chapter 6

Fade in:

Int. A pizza restaurant. Day

Lena sits on the counter next to Jonathan, both are wearing aprons. Lena is reading a magazine and Jonathan is staring at the clock on the wall. The Pizza Restaurant is empty. They don't speak to each other. Jonathan jumps off the counter.

Jonathan
That's it.

Lena
But the boss isn't here yet.

Jonathan
Oh, yeah. well my shift is up.

Lena
Well so is mine.

Jonathan
Well there only needs to be one person to stay until the boss comes. I was totally off the counter first.

Lena
So.

Jonathan
Well, i don't know what to tell you i'm leaving.

Lena
I'm supposed to go over to my friend's house.

Jonathan
Well i'm supposed to go pick up my sister. We both have things to do. That's why planned them directly after our shifts.

Lena
Well, roshambo for it.

Jonathan
Roshambo like rock, paper, scissors, or Roshambo like kick each other in the nuts.

Lena
I don't have any nuts, so clearly rock, paper, scissors.

Jonathan
Okay. One, Two, Three, SHOOT. Best 2 out of 3. If we do this, we do this the Right way.

Lena
Okay.

They put their fists in their hand. 1,2,3 SHOOT. Lena wins. 1,2,3 SHOOT. Jonathan wins. 1,2,3 SHOOT. Tie. 1,2,3 SHOOT. Tie. 1,2,3 SHOOT Jonathan wins.

Jonathan
That's it. I'll see you later.

Lena
Whatever. I guess i'll call her and tell her i can't come.

Jonathan
That would be a good idea.

Jonathan puts on a jacket and exits the restaurant.

Ext. Pizza Restaurant. Day

Jonathan steps outside the restaurant. He pulls out his cell. Dials. Presses send.

Jonathan
Hey, kid./ I'm on my way./ To pick you up./ You said you needed a ride./ Ugh, whatever. that's actually better. I can go the easy way instead of going all the way over there to get you./ Alright, later.

Jonathan looks back at the restaurant wondering if he should go back in, seeing as he doesn't have anywhere to be now. He smiles, shakes his head and walks around the corner towards his car. A man is standing in the parking lot with a big sign that says "THE END IS NEAR!" Jonathan gets in his car backs up and almost hits the man. He drives away.
