The Screenplay: Scene 15

Posted by Dave Bull on January 2, 2023 [Permalink]

John and Mayu were sitting in the breakfast nook of their little apartment, the morning sun streaming in through the window. The letter from her father lay on the table in front of them.

"I don't understand why you won't accept his help," Mayu said, her voice slightly trembling. "It's been so hard with the media scrutiny, and his offer could really help us."

John sighed and took her hands in his. "I know, but I don't want to owe him anything. I want to prove I'm capable of making it without his help. I want to do this on my own."

Mayu looked down, her lip trembling. "I know, but I can't help feeling like we could use his help. We could make it easier on ourselves."

John shook his head. "No, we can't. We have to prove to everyone that we can make it. We just have to keep going and not give up. We can do this." He smiled at her and squeezed her hands.

Mayu looked up at him, her eyes brightening. She smiled back at him and nodded. "Okay, we can do this. Together."
