KID BUNTAL'S SON CONVERSING WITH KILAWEN'S DAUGHTER INSIDE THE MORMON CHURCH AT 2 PM

KILAWEN’S DAUGHTER : “I know you wrote their letters”.

KID BUNTAL’S SON: “They are my friends”.

KILAWEN’S DAUGHTER : “Why don’t you write for yourself?”.

KID BUNTAL’S SON: “For whom?”.

KILAWEN’S DAUGHTER: “For me…”.

Silence. The lizard watching them from the ceiling suddenly darted towards an idling mosquito. The mosquito vanished.

KID BUNTAL’S SON: “Your brother will kill me”.

KILAWEN’S DAUGHTER: “This is about us not him”.

KID BUNTAL’S SON: “He’s my best friend. You know that”.

KILAWEN’S DAUGHTER: “I am his sister. He will understand”.

KID BUNTAL’S SON: “I will be a traitor. I slept in your house, ate from your table.”

She looked away to the window. Her eyes gleamed. The lizard looked at them intently.

KID BUNTAL’S SON: “We will be tormented”.

He reached for her hand. She moved closer and leaned on his shoulder. Their hearts are racing fast. He kissed her. The lizard fell to the floor.
