The Screenplay: Scene 9

Posted by Dave Bull on December 26, 2022 [Permalink]

John had been feeling the tension in the household ever since he arrived. Mayu was always cold and distant to him, and he knew that she was uncomfortable with him being there. But he couldn't help the way he felt about her.

He had been slowly gathering the courage to tell her how he felt, but every time he got close to her, he could feel her icy glare, and it would cause his courage to dissipate.

But this time, he was determined. He had to tell her how he felt.

John slowly approached Mayu, his heart pounding in his chest. She seemed to sense his presence, and she turned to face him. He could feel her eyes boring into him, but he forced himself to look at her.

"Mayu," he began, his voice shaking. "I know that you don't like me being here, and I understand why. But I wanted to tell you something. I...I love you. I know it's wrong and that your father would never approve, but I can't help the way I feel about you."

He waited for her to respond, but she just stared at him in silence. He was about to turn away, when he felt her hand on his arm. He looked up, and saw a faint smile on her lips.

"John," she said softly. "I feel the same way."
