Cold War

"We have bean stalk since forever and you haven't done jack about it"... A year on, and now I can freely write about it. Enjoy

FADE IN:

INT. HOME – CRYSTAL ESTATE – EVENING

The house features a hall with a wardrobe which leads to the bedroom and the bathroom. The room has a king-sized bed. The room features a kitchenette and a table with chairs. The room faces south and has a splendid view of the green garden, basketball court and surrounding sea.

HER:


Honey! you’re back

Goes to hug him,


How did your day go? Hope you didn’t have much fun, well I know that no matter how much fun you have you will always come back to me,

BOTH:

A leopard can’t change its spots

HIM:

All day I stay preoccupied trying not to think of you, but after the dust settles, like a lost tourist I retrace my steps and find my way back… here… to you

HER:

You mean you don’t like coming back to me? You don’t love me?? After all we’ve been through together?

HIM:

Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t mean it like that, all I meant to say that was that sometimes I think

BOTH:

There is more to life than this, and there should be something else out there

HER:

Listen up mister, we have bean stalk here since forever and you haven’t done jack about it, since you realized that everything and everyone dies, that life ultimately has no purpose I have been with you, I fed you my thoughts, tilled the grounds of your mind, sowed seeds into your confidence, I found you crawling and taught you how to stand and walk, and now that you’re all grown you can’t stand me? and want to walk out on me?

HIM:

But aren’t you tired of me? Cos, I can say I am of you, hasn’t it occurred to you that we are wired differently and this bad connection and will cause our relationship to keep sparking, It is dangerous and will endanger us if we continue so I suggest we cut our losses or risk having a blackout in a power tussle

HER:

What power? Do you have any? don’t you know are nothing without me? I made you who you are, I taught you your first thoughts and now everyone calls you a genius, I made you focus on only your art as an outlet, I gave you the opportunity to hone your skills turning you to the superstar you are now. Girls drool over you, guys wish to be you, because of me! I made you try to work but your lazy self couldn’t see the larger picture because of your vantage, you lazy son of a bi…

HIM:

I know I know! I know I’m not hardworking but it is hard working when I know in the end there is no meaning to everything on the grand scheme of life, so why bother?!. Yes: everyone loves me and they see me as a success, No: I don’t know what that word means and feels like but I’m not it is not this, Yes: i try my best daily to make sense of things and be happy but if feels like the more I try to get out of this rabbit hole you keep forcing those pills into me making my life smaller.

HER:

Oh spare me the fairytale, you are no Alice this is no wonderland.


HIM:

… I want a breakup

HER:

That’s not possible, you know it isn’t. And trust me, you don’t want to see what comes after Jekyll… hide

HIM:

I’m done hiding, I don’t care anymore, I no longer want to see you

HER:

That’s also not possible love, you see me because you want to. I’m not real remember, this is all in your head

HIM:

Yes I know. I know I created you to have someone to talk to when I’ve had it up to my teeth, when the music stops and when the crowd is done throwing roses at my feet, you crept into my head, added your touch to the walls of my mind, now you’ve gotten comfortable, sitting on a table watching me sofa while you cheer, and I know you won’t leave me even if I go seek asylum in an asylum, so before things get out of hands I will

HER:


You will do nothing because nothing can separate you from my love, there is no escaping me, I will climb and dig through any barrier you put up. So long as you are breathing I will always be here, ticking and talking to you, timing your time outs, season in, season out,

HIM:

As long as I’m breathing you will always be here… now I’ve figured out how to beat you, kaka ki ile ku, ile a la.

He reaches into his pocket and brings out pills


HER:

What are you doing?


HIM:

Defeating you

HER:

No, Wait! Wait!!

He swallows the pills and smiles at her.

She keeps shaking him until he passes out on her


HER:

If you only you had listened… I tried to tell you but your heart and ears were locked from within and not even my kiss would have opened it. Death can’t take you away from me. Nothing can

She wraps her hands around him



HER:

I will be here for you, I was here in the beginning and I will be here even after the end. You belong to me. You are mine. You will always be mine.

FADE OUT
