Scene One: The Fight
Amelia and Gavin sit in Gavin's Car listening to music while the rain pours down hard. They are both in Amelia's driveway after returning from their date. Amelia is nervous and anxious as her hands are shaking while her breath is becoming short. She takes deep breaths inhaling and exhaling as she tries to works up the courage to say what's on her mind to Gavin. Her mind is racing back and forth. She can feel her heart rate. In her head, she’s playing out all of the scenarios of what could happen. Amelia is too busy focusing on her own thoughts that she blanks out until Gavins calls out to her.
Gavin: Hey, are you okay?
Amelia: Huh.. wait, what?
Gavin: Im asking if you are okay. You're just starting the window.
Amelia: Um.. yeah I'm fine ( her voice is cracking )
Gavin looks down and sees that Amelia is shaking.
Gavin: Are you cold? I can turn on the heat.
Amelia: No, I'm not cold
Gavin: Are you sure because you are shaking really bad .. here ( he hands Amelia his jacket )
Amelia: No, Gavin, I'm fine
Gavin: No, you are not just taking the jacket
Amelia: No, seriously, I'm fine
Gavin: No, you’re not; you're cold so take the jacket
Amelia: Gavin, I said I'm fine, okay I don’t need the jacket
Gavin rolled his eyes and sighs
Why do you have to be so stubborn all the time?
Amelia: Excuse me ( her voice gets higher )
Gavin: You heard what I said. Do you need a hearing aid or something
Amelia: Im just going to pretend that I didn’t hear that
Gavin: You know, the whole day today, you have been super bitchy for no reason. You give me an attitude for no reason when I'm simply just trying to help. What's your deal?
Amelia: My deal is with you. That's what's my deal is. ( this is where Amelia's frustration and anger come out . She fully lashes out at Gavin). I cant deal with your shit anymore! For the past four months, I had to sit and deal with your overbearing clingy, grumpy, moody ass! you became too much for me to deal with
Gavin takes a deep breath, trying to analyze what Amelia had said to him. He is confused and shocked. Amelia's words hit him like a deer jumping into traffic. After a moment of silence that feels like an eternity for Amelia, she sees the hurt on his face along with loss and confusion. She didn't except for her to blur out those words, but the pressure inside of her couldn't take it anymore.
Gavin: You say that I'm moody when really you're the one who has been moody ever since you finish school. All you talk about is how much you miss your friends and that you haven't found a job. You take out all your anger on me when it's not my fault. You can't blame me for your friends abandoning you. I told you you didn't need them anyway.
Amelia: You haven't been supported by me at all! You're part of the reason why my friends left because they couldn't deal with you anymore. When I was middle of doing something that you claim, you'll call me such an imprint, but it wasn't. You'll be banging on my door in the middle of the night asking where I'm waking up my roommates. At times, you'll constantly be blowing up my phone in a thirty-minute span; you'll call me like eight times and send me over ten text messages like what the fuck! you need to chill
Gavin: I'm sorry I was trying to be a good boyfriend ! ( this is where Gavin screams, causing Amelia to jump ) I need to know where you are to keep you safe.
Amelia: Safe from what? I can protect myself. I'm not a child, Gavin; this is what I'm talking about. You are suffocating me like a bag around the face that keeps getting pulled tighter and tighter until I can't even gasp for air.
Gavin: All I did was gave you what you expected from me, like affection
Amelia: Yes, I want affection, but I don't want a boyfriend to smother me all the time, Gavin. Do you remember the time when we're out on a double date? You were so clingy that I couldn't eat my food; you just kept touching me and trying to kiss the whole time.
Gavin: You gave me nothing at all; you wouldn't want to kiss me in front of your friends, sometimes I'll have to beg to hold your damn hand. You're acting like a baby cause you complain about the littlest thing. What about me, Amelia? When you join your fraternity, I felt abandoned by you barely hang out with or talk me. You'll always say you're too busy studying or hanging out with friends like I'm your boyfriend. I should be your number priority in the first place; nothing should ever come before me, do you understand!
Gavin slams his fist on the dashboard screaming at Amelia, and the two continue going back and forth, both of them screaming at each other their voices are like a teapot on a hot stove that's about to explode. The rain starts to pour down harder as all you can hear are the muffle sounds of screaming. Both of their faces are red as tears pour down from their eyes, mainly from Amelia, who continues to sob while Gavin screams at her. Her head is burry down in her lap. Gavin's words become too painful to bear until a loud thunderclap in the air, and Amelia screams enough.
Amelia " just stop it Im done! it's over Gavin I mean it's over I'm so just so don- " ( before she could finish that sentence, Gavin smacks her across the cheek hits head her against the car window. She looks back at him with a mixture of anger but mainly sadness as the Gavin she knew before is no longer there. Gavin stares at her, then he looks at his hand, realizing what he has done. He tries to apologize, but it's too late. Amelia grabs her stuff and runs straight into her house in-dash, and slams the front door close. Gavin chases after her begging her to come back outside to fix things.
Gavin: Amelia, please come. I'm sorry we can fix this, please come out. ( Gavin is crying, slamming his fist against the door ) I didn't mean to do that. I swear Amelia, please just come out!
Amelia leans her head against the door, still crying as she hears Gavin pleading for her to come out while he continues to bang his fist against the door.
Gavin: you can't do this to me, Amelia; you need me, and I need you. I swear to god you can't do this to me, Amelia!
Amelia finally manages to get off the floor; she turns to face the door with her hand on the door. She hesitates to open, debating if she should walk away or stay with Gavin. He continues screaming out her name at the top of his lungs. Amelia takes a deep breath and walks away from the door, and heads upstairs to her room. The scene fades out with Gavin screaming out her name.

Claire: Oh ( surprise while also sarcastic ) look who is finally back from their trip after abandoning me for two weeks ( both girls starts to walk to their desk station)
Amelia: Seriously, I told you I would visit my dad for two weeks, and I returned.
Claire: Yeah, I know, but still, I was miserable without you. I had no idea how bored I was. I had to deal with annoying Angie, who wouldn’t catch me a break ( rolls her eyes while saying this ). Oh, by the way, did you hear about what happened to Gavin?
Amelia: Well, your suffering ends, so now we both suffer together. No, I haven’t heard about Gavin, what about him? ( seems a little surprised by this )
Amelia sits at her desk and turns around to look at Claire with a worried look on her face.
Claire: He vanished when you went away after you broke up with him. Everybody has been trying to contact him, but he doesn’t answer his phone. His dad hasn’t seen him ether him since he left the house.
