Opening Scene

-STAIRCASE-

JADE (running down the stairs after Shane)

Shane!!!

Jade grabs Shane by shoulder. "Loo-" she says as she is interrupted by Shane. Shane turns around and starts talking to Jade. Jade slightly jumps back and has a frightened look in her eyes.

SHANE (upset and angry)

You know. I liked you so much, so much, Jade. You were my perfect girl, really. But I just can't believe that you didn't tell me. I told you everything about me...I trusted you with so much! I never let my guard down, but for some reason, I wanted to with you. Man, was I wrong... (SHAKING HEAD) (VOICE CRACKING ALMOST CRYING) I just...just can't shake it off, not this time.

Jade looks as if she did something horribly wrong and knows this. She takes the blame, but she is still so hurt by Shane's words. Almost crying.

SHANE (now frustrated and angry)

Everytime I look into (GRABS HER FACE) your eyes, I see the girl who just...fits! Who fits perfectly (LETS GO) I just wish...(SIGHS OUT OF FRUSTRATION; VOICE CRACKING TO CRY) I'm weak for you. I'm weak.

Shane sighs and runs down the stairs.

JADE

Shan- ! (HELD BACK BY HER TEARS)

Jade's face contracts into sobbing, and she leans against the wall crying. She slowly falls down the wall and holds her knees crying. Shane leaves the building and enters the dark night running away.
