PAY BACK SCENE 1 – #Gointothestory competition

EXT. COFFEE SHOP – AFTERNOON

A quiet coffee shop peppered with a small crowd of people. Smart suited prim Jane walks in as loafy long haired Max cradles his latte.

JANE
Why here?

MAX
You’re kidding me.

JANE
Your idea of a date?

MAX
Where we first met?

JANE
And the rest.

MAX
What’s that supposed to mean?

JANE pulls out MAX’s phone.

MAX
All this time. Hand it over.

JANE
Any particular reason?

MAX
I want to play you…something.

JANE
…Figures.

MAX
Listen. I’m here to make up.

JANE
Which story?

Jane glances at the phone.

MAX
What is wrong with you?

Jane slams the phone into Max’s face

MAX
You’ve got to learn to communicate.

JANE
…It is your phone isn’t it?

MAX
I love your legal stuff but let’s skip the interrogation.

Max presses his phone. It starts to play ‘It had to be you’. He looks to Jane.

JANE
‘GREAT TIME, BY THE WAY, MY NAME IS LISA’.

Jane stands up and grabs the phone back.

JANE
Look there’s even a photo. NOT ME EVERYONE. SOME OTHER GIRL.

People in the coffee shop look embarrassed and turn away. A lone woman cheers.

COFFEE SHOP GUY
This has got nothing to do with any of us. Carry on.

MAX
Thanks dude. I can explain.

JANE
Let me guess, you deny, everything?

MAX
A rogue text from a girl I don’t know. I’VE NEVER CHEATED, NEVER WILL.

The music suddenly stops as Jane smashes the phone to pieces.

JANE
HE’S PAYING.

Old woman cheers.

EXT. OUTSIDE PAVEMENT

An agitated Jane walks a block. She makes a call.

JANE
It’s over. Nothing to salvage, satisfied.
