Mike stand by the door. He sees Alice holds a cutting
pliers. He stands there sadly.
ALICE
Mike walks to Alice.
ALICE
Put there.
Mike puts the plate on the drawer.
MIKE
Why?
ALICE
Why are you here?
MIKE
I’m just leftovers. Like the
pajamas in the corner.
While they talk, Alice keep putting cutter together.
ALICE
You never go outside?
MIKE
No. Are there other people in the
world? People who don’t want it to
stop?
ALICE
They all don’t want it to stop.
Some pretend it will go on forever.
Some just buy things to... avoid
the void. And some accept their
fate... Like me. I’m just accepting
my fate. That’s why I’m here.
Come.

MIKE
What about his fate?
Mike points to the belly.
ALICE
He’ll be born just to die. Besides
he could be a monster. Or he could
learn to pretend it goes on
forever.I’d rather him die then to
be obsessed with the latest fashion
wave, the latest movie... The
latest thing being sold.
Alice opens the mini fridge. In it every poison jars
imaginable... All with price tags
MIKE
They want you to spend all of it
before you leave, you know that?
Alice grabs scissors and a rope and closes the fridge
MIKE
... those other people... Can I
meet them?
Alice goes over to the kid.
Alice raise the cutting pliers. CU OF THE CUTTING PLIERS TO
THE NECK. ADJUST THE ANGEL. PUT IT DOWN TO THE COLLAR. CUT
THE COLLAR.
ALARM BLARES.
Run.
ALICE
The collar on Mike’s neck breaks apart. Mike looks
surprised.
Alice holds Mike’s hand and stands up.
LOW ANGEL FROM THE COLLAR: Alice and Mike walk out of the
door.
