SCENE ONE: Man smiling at his desk, speaking to his phone, holding it walkie-talkie style.
“Hey babe, where’re you? Voicemail again, huh. Someone’s busy.
“Listen, I just…I don’t have much, actually. Just wanted to talk to you, tell you I’m thinking of you. I was walking in the quad, and I saw a bright red flower, and the colour of the petals reminded me of you. Remember that dress you were wearing the first time we met?
“Yeah. I’ve never told you this, but I was in love from that moment we met — or at least, I saw you. You, just sitting there, haughty pout and upturned nose stuck in your book, red dress by the fountain, legs crossed and oh so sexy… You know I love you, right?
“Anyway, that’s all, I gotta go back to work. Talk to you again, soon.”
SCENE TWO: Flickering between screens of a phone/mobile text client and a Facebook chat.
- Hey babe
- The new movie looks good
- Cool special effects, interesting storyline
- There’s that actor you like, the one with the square jaw
- Yes, there’s some hot chick too
- We should go check that one out.

SCENE THREE: The man from before lying on his half of a double-bed. One side is neat and tidy; his side is crinkled and ruffled. He’s wearing clothes which suggest he’s dressed to go out, but he’s lying with a ladies’ sleeveless top across his face and he’s chortling somewhat, to himself.
Peter: No, no. Why would I? Maybe later. Today, I just want to lie here and stay with you.
SCENE: The camera pulls back, zooming out to show the empty bed and the phone (with IM screen). Beside the bed is a laptop, the screen showing Julia blowing a kiss in a still. The camera pulls back, showing the room is empty, rolling backwards through the empty apartment, which once had two people living in it.
FADE TO BLACK.
Based on a story:
yeah. my fiancee committed suicide last July, and her account was still logged in. It’s actually still logged in on one of my computers, since she had “remember me” checked.
That’s what I was thinking. I talk to her constantly. I still message her facebook account frequently. Or I just talk to some of her things. We’d lived together for years. Best years of my life, too.
