Alex & Beverly

EXT. CLUB - NIGHT.
Alex catches up to Beverly on the corner. He grabs her by her arm and swings her around to face him.
ALEX
Beverly where are you going?
Beverly pulls her arm away.
BEVERLY
Alex I can’t do this...
Alex is a little confused.
ALEX
Can’t do what? What are you afraid of? Beverly what’s the problem?
BEVERLY
The problem is you Alex... It’s you... Out of all the women in the city, why me? Why’d you choose me? Why me?
ALEX
If you would just let me explain...
BEVERLY
No... I don’t want to hear it!!!! You lied to me.
ALEX What!?
BEVERLY
You lied to me. You knew I had issues with trust since I left my husband... And knowing this, why would you hide this from me? What else are you hiding?
ALEX
I never hid anything. You were with me whenever I got calls from my company.
BEVERLY
You never told me it was your COMPANY!
ALEX Yes I did!

BEVERLY
Well..... Yes... But you never told me it was YOUR company. You know what I mean!
Alex starts to get angry.
ALEX
Let me get this straight! You are mad at me.... Because I did not tell you that I was...
Alex turns and walks in a circle in amazement and looks at her.
BEVERLY
This is a big thing Alex, I had no idea who you were, I feel so stupid now. And you were playing me for a fool.
ALEX
What are you talking about? I was there for you during the worst days of your life and I saw you pull yourself out of it! I was proud of you. You reminded me of when I had nobody, nothing.
BEVERLY
Alex I don’t want to hear--
Alex cut her off.
ALEX
No you’re gonna listen... You know why you? I’ll tell you... I liked you for the fact that you didn’t know who I was. You treated me like a human being. You were my friend! Since I became well off, women treat me like I’m some big game animal they have got to hunt down. They don’t see me! All they see is a big paycheck, a big wedding, a big house, big alimony... They see everything but the big picture. All the money in the world without love... is the loneliest place to be. Do you know how many times a day I get lied to ’cause they want my money! And you think I lied to you... please!

Beverly stunned, has no words. Alex walks off.

ALEX (CONT’D)
You know what’s funny? You women always say you want a good man..... The reality is, there are good men all around you... You just have to learn to see them. They don’t always look the way you would expect.
Beverly watches as Alex walks back to the club.
