Int. Bedroom – night

SARAH is lying on her bed. Her laptop is open. She is chatting with RAYAN whom she met on Tinder a month ago. She is smiling as she writes to him.

It might sound crazy but I feel we have a strong connection. We have so much in common. I think its time we met in person. What do you say Rayan?

 

INT. living room – Evening

RAYAN is sitting on the sofa. The moment he reads the new message. He jumps up in excitement. He also feel the same connection. They connect on a greater level.

RAYAN

(types)

I feel the same way. We have only talked for a month but I feel like we are meant to be…

OK! Its decided then! We shall meet tomorrow at 5 in the park.

 

RAYAN puts his PHONE down with a peaceful smile on his face.

 

EXT. Park – Evening

RAYAN enters the park. There are so many people there today.

RAYAN

(mumbles)

Its like the whole world wants to celebrate my love.

He walks towards the place they had decided to meet. He can see SARAH from far away. He recognizes her instantly. SARAH is looking expectantly all around her.

RAYAN laughs a little.

He is now 10 meters away. SARAH has still not looked at him.

RAYAN

Shit! I should have styled my hair the same way. My DP is so old. No wonder she cant recgnize me. So unromantic!

RAYAN reaches SARAH.

RAYAN

Hi!

Sarah smiles.

SARAH

Hello!

I am sorry. The bench is occupied. I am waiting for soembody.

RAYAN

(laughs)

Seriously?
Do I look that different?

SARAH

Excuse me?

RAYAN

I am Rayan yaar!!

SARAH

Is this some sort of a joke?

RAYAN

C’mon yaar! Its me!

SARAH

What is going on?
Was this a prank. Who the fuck are you?

RAYAN

I am RAYAN. Your Rayan! We met a month ago. Remember?

SARAH

I know my RAYAN! Or were you playing with me all this time! Oh My God, I am so stupid.

RAYAN

No Sarah. Why would I play with you? I didnt play with you. I love you

RAYAN is trying to get near her. But SARAH keeps pushing him away. SARAH yells at RAYAN.

SARAH

Get away from me, you sicko! I don’t want to see your face ever again, you need help!

She has tears in her eyes. RAYAN is also crying.

SARAH hurriedly walks towards the park gate.

RAYAN follows her.

RAYAN

Please sarah. Tell me whats wrong.
I’ll work it out. Talk to me!

RAYAN

You have to talk to me

SARAH stops. She turns around.

SARAH

You want to know whats wrong.

SARAH opens her bag, tears rolling down her face, and fishes out her compact mirror. She jams it in RAYAN’s face.

RAYAN’s face mirrors disbelief. He raises his hand to hold the mirror.

He hears all the noise fade away. Even Sarah! Everything just quiets down. He is unable to understand the situation.

A girl is looking back at him from the mirror. A girl with big brown eyes.

SARAH looks at RAYAN’s shocked face and walks away leaving her mirror behind.

RAYAN sinks to the ground with the mirror still in his hand.
