EXT. A BUSY STREET – DAY

Debby is walking down a very busy and noisy street, while Tina hurries after her.

TINA
Debby! Debby! Is this not Debby!

She catches up with Debby, taps her shoulder and Debby stops and turns

TINA
Debby! Didn’t you hear me calling you?


DEBBY

(indifferently)
It’s a noisy street, Tina


TINA
What’s up ? I have been calling your phone and you
haven’t been answering. I even came to your house twice last week,
knocked but you didn’t open up. Or maybe you were not
home.


DEBBY
I was at home, Tina, but I just didn’t want to see
you.


TINA

(stunned)
Are you for real? You didn’t want to see me? why is that?


DEBBY
Because I don’t need people who always talk down on me
around me. If you don’t believe in me, then what
exactly are we doing staying friends?


TINA
Debby! Why are you talking like this? Is this
because of that movie audition thing?


DEBBY
It’s about everything you stand for. I don’t expect
anything different from you, I mean you lack self
confidence yourself, but I won’t let you rub that off
me. We should stay away from each other.

She starts walking away


TINA
Come on, Debby! It’s not that serious.
Why do you sound as if we’re fighting?

Debby ignores her and continues on her way.
