“This Is Everybody’s Air, Sir!”

 

FADE IN

DUDE

Mam, can you put your cigarette in your left hand?

LADY

What?

DUDE

The wind is blowing the smoke this way, getting it all in my nose.

LADY

Why don’t you stand on the left of me, then?

DUDE

Because the sidewalk is clear here. There’s still a lot of ice on that side. I don’t wanna *simultaneously pretends to slip while saying dialogue* whoa whoa whoaaaaaa!

LADY

*takes puff of cigarette and blows kiss that leaves smoke circle in air* Are you gonna catch it?

DUDE

What, the kiss or the lung cancer? No, thank you, to both. It doesn’t matter. Here comes the bus!

The LADY flicks the cigarette. The two board the bus. As they head to the back, DUDE accidentally steps on a passenger’s shoes. 

DUDE

My bad!

BOYFRIEND

It’s okay.

GIRLFRIEND

Your feet too big, baby.

BOYFRIEND

And your head too big to be laying on my bad shoulder.

GIRLFRIEND

No, no, stop, let me lay my head down. You know I need my power nap before work, now.

BOYFRIEND

Nope, nope, nope.

GIRLFRIEND

You know, I can’t lay my head in your lap. How would that look?

BOYFRIEND

Ughhh! Heeahh *bounces shoulder*

GIRLFRIEND

You love your Gina!

GIRLFRIEND lays head on BOYFRIEND’s shoulder and closes her eyes. A man wearing a hoodie boards the bus with a backpack. He sits backpack down and pays fare.

BOYFRIEND

*thinks to self* Did he forget he left his backpack right there? Why would he sit his backpack at the front and go to the back? He gone have to move it if somebody come on with bags of groceries. Why is he standing up? Plenty of seats.

The mystery man pulls the cord. 

BOYFRIEND

*thinks to self* He getting off already? He could have walked here!

The mystery man gets off the bus where he was standing, at the back doors. The BOYFRIEND looks in the front, at the backpack. 

BOYFRIEND

*thinks to self* He left his …

The BOYFRIEND turns around, looks out window and sees the mystery man running. 

BOYFRIEND

Whoa, bus-driver, this our stop, too!

GIRLFRIEND

*opens eyes* We here, already?

BOYFRIEND

Come on, baby!

GIRLFRIEND

This not our stop!

BOYFRIEND

Baby, come on!

GIRLFRIEND

What you doing?

BOYFRIEND

We getting off! Come on!

GIRLFRIEND

I gotta be at work in 20 minutes!

BOYFRIEND

You not going today.

GIRLFRIEND

What you mean I’m not going? I can’t miss no more days or be late for the next 8 weeks or I’m gone be fired!

BUS DRIVER

Is this y’all stop?

BOYFRIEND

Yeah, I’m sorry! Come on, baby!

GIRLFRIEND

I’m not coming nowhere!

The BOYFRIEND grabs her by the waist and carries her off on his shoulder. He holds her in a hugging position as the bus takes off. 

GIRLFRIEND

Wait! Let me go, Sean! Stop! You gone make me late! Stop! You gone get me fired!

She accidentally sticks him in the eye with a nail while she is hitting him upside the head. The BOYFRIEND hunches over in pain, rubbing his eye. As she is running after the bus, it explodes. She falls to her knees and breaks down crying. The BOYFRIEND runs to her, falls to his knees and hugs her. 

FADE TO BLACK

Why you think the BOYFRIEND didn’t wanna alert everyone on the bus something might be wrong?

“Oooh Girl They All At The Park With This!”

Based on actual events

Roman – I’m gone kill her!
Nubrisco – Calm down, Rome! She not worth your freedom.
Roman – I don’t care. I don’t care. I’m going to jail.
Nubrisco – Man, will you slow down and breathe. Talk to me!
Roman – I’m done talking.
Nubrisco – I can’t let you do this. You not thinking straight. *wraps Roman’s arms up with his and holds him in a standstill*
Roman – Let me go!
Nubrisco – No!

*2 girls walk by*

Chanita – Oooh girl they all at the park with this!
Nubrisco – *lets Roman go*
Roman – *runs off*
Nubrisco – Rome …

*the 2 girls look at Nubrisco with an anticipating stare*

*Nubrisco looks at their curious faces*

Nubrisco – Rome … uhhh how you BEAUTIFUL PRETTY SEXY GORGEOUS HOT ladies doing?
Chanita – Hmmhmm.
Kim – Boy, whatever! *snaps fingers*

*the 2 girls walk off*

Nubrisco – *softly utters* Damn, Rome!

The next day …

Kim – Oh my God, girl. Come here. Look who on the news!
Chanita – Who?
Kim – That’s that guy we saw in the park yesterday who ran off when we caught him hugging the dude who tried to flirt with us. News saying he killed his girlfriend.
Chanita – Damn. I guess he was bi.
Kim – You know what, I don’t think he is. I think he was straight. They probably wasn’t hugging. His friend probably was holding him. I don’t know. But I don’t think we should go to that park again. We should cancel our morning walk.
Chanita – Why? The news said they caught him, though.
Kim – Yeahhhh but what about his friend???
Chanita – Surely you can’t believe his friend would hold us responsible for him letting his friend go ’cause he didn’t want us to think he was gay?
Kim – He just might! I’m not willing to find out. I say we find another park to workout at.
Chanita – Girl, you worry too much. I’m going for my walk.
Kim – Let’s just go to another park.
Chanita – I like that park. How can he blame us for not being strong in his sexuality??? He should’ve kept hugging him. Or holding him, whatever. Plus, we didn’t drive his friend crazy. We not his girlfriend. Look. I’m going to the park in 30 minutes. You coming or not?
Kim – … I can’t. I just can’t. Got a bad feeling about that park. I’m sorry. Let’s just go to another one, ‘Nita.
Chanita – You worry too much!
Kim – *sigh* Well at least talk to me on the phone the whole time you’re there.
Chanita – … ok then. Well I’m mad you got me going alone. But ok. I’ll call you when I get there.

37 minutes later …

Chanita – Girl, I’m 10 minutes into my walk. Nobody out here! You should’ve came! Ugh!
Kim – I apologize. I just couldn’t. I just had these gut feelings when we was watching the news. But you know I would have if you went to another park. It’s one not too far from that one. You too stubborn.
Chanita – No, you worry too much. But anywayyyyys girl, did you see that Vine video of this girl getting hit in the head with a shovel???
Kim – Hahaha. Oh my God! That was the most awkward fight I EVER seen. They up there getting to know each other before the fight, petting animals and shit.
Chanita – The girl in black like what’s your birthday. Haha.
Kim – She was like, “don’t hit me in the face.” You in a fight, dumb ass!
Chanita – You saw when her fat ass friend tried to help her and ran up to the house then her mama came out with that lil’ ass dog? Haha. Girl, I was dying … *breathing hard*
Kim – Girl, you must be having an awesome ass workout? You suddenly started breathing hard as hell. Haha.
Chanita – *drops phone* KIM!!!!!!!!
Kim – Hello? Hello? Hello? Chanita, what’s wrong? Hello? Chanita? Hello? HELLOOOOOOOOOO. SAY SOMETHING! I CAN’T HEAR YOU. CHANITA, YOU THERE? OH MY GOD! HELLOOOOOOO!
Nubrisco – *picks up phone* Well hello there!
Kim – *gasps and drops phone, shattering the glass screen*
