Melanie Sides

The blinds are closed, and some light is seeping between them. A man, HISAO, is sleeping when the phone starts ringing. HISAO doesn’t wake up, but does move in the bed. The ringing ends, and a message is heard.
MELANIE
Hisao??? I know you’re there. I
don’t know why you’re doing this to me. I really don’t. Please call me back, make me feel wanted... just a little bit. Don’t run away again. I love you.
____________
He gets no answer, so he turns around and tries to get up. He is too weak to walk, so he starts crawling toward MELANIE. HISAO is feeling much worse than a few moments ago, but he is unusually happy. As he is crawling, he starts falling in and out of consciousness. Finally he is by her side.
HISAO (CONT’D) Melanie... why? How?
MELANIE
Hisao, you know why I am here...
how doesn’t matter
HISAO
You are right.. Everything is
falling apart, I can’t keep it together.
MELANIE Hisao...
HISAO
No, listen. This doesn’t matter
anymore. The heist, the honor, Howard, Larry. None of it matters. But I couldn’t keep us together. Forgive me.
MELANIE
I am not here to give you my
forgivness. I’m here so you can forgive yourself and move on.
