Dream Boy


Dream Boy

Bedroom. NINA sleeps next to CHRISTIAN. She stirs.

CHRISTIAN
Good morning beautiful.

She wakes up with a start.

NINA
Who are you?

CHRISTIAN
I’m Christian.

NINA
Why are you here?

CHRISTIAN
Well…

NINA
Oh god. Last night. Tequila. Oh no. Was I good?

CHRISTIAN
Oh, we didn’t…

NINA
We didn’t?

CHRISTIAN
Nah.

NINA
Damnit!

CHRISTIAM
Just cuddled. Wouldn’t want to rush into things too quick.
I don’t know if this is too forward of me, but, could I possibly take you out to dinner tonight? My treat. We can see a play and get cocktails after.

NINA
You are too good to be true.

CHRISTIAN
I am your dream boy.

NINA
Pardon?

CHRISTIAN
Every girl has a dream boy. And I’m yours.

NINA
Am I asleep?

CHRISTIAN
You conjured me in your dreams and made me your reality.

NINA
So you’re… real?

CHRISTIAN
Does this feel real?

He kisses her.

NINA
Dinner sounds great!

CHRISTIAN
I’ll pick you up at six.



The plot will thicken.

Some Inception Shit


(I was dreaming of him)


Some Inception Shit

GIRL
I just had the best nap of my life.

BOY
Really.

GIRL
I dreamt that I was asleep.

BOY
Really?

GIRL
I could hear music in the background. And ambient sound from the outdoors. And I was dreaming and I’d wake up from the dream but I’d still be asleep. I was perfectly calm for the full twenty minutes of that nap – best sleep ever.

BOY
Cool story bro.

Dumb Mute


Fuck it. Let's try for another year. Ish.
Dumb Mute

Party.

ALLISON
I’m not supposed to talk to you.

JAMES
Why?

ALLISON
Because I am wasted. And when I’m wasted, I say stupid things. And I don’t want to say stupid things to you. Because they wouldn’t be very nice.

JAMES
That’s good.

ALLISON slaps JAMES.

JAMES
What was that for?

ALLISON
They say pain sobers you up.

JAMES
I’m not that drunk.

ALLISON
You’re drunk off your own stupidity.

JAMES
I thought you weren’t talking to me?

ALLISON
I slapped you. That doesn’t involve words. Except I guess I’m talking to you right now with words that aren’t slapping so maybe that kinda counts?

JAMES
Then stop talking.

ALLISON slaps him.

JAMES
Hey! Why do you keep—

ALLISON indicates that her lips are sealed.

JAMES
Really?

She shrugs. She giggles.

JAMES
I’m gonna leave.

He starts to walk away. She grabs him. She leans in as if to kiss him – the stops.

ALLISON
Slap me.

JAMES
Go drink some water.

ALLISON
Slap me!

JAMES
You’re not talking.

ALLISON
I guess I’m too drunk off my own stupidity.

JAMES
I’ll see you later.

He exits. She slaps herself.
