THOMAS-You want to break up… sure… no problem… yeah, I wanted to break up too. I’ve been thinking about it from the day we met. This is a person I will need to break up with. But hey… you beat me to it. No hard feelings.
(shrugs and turns away)
JASEY – NO HARD FEELINGS. CAN WE BE FRIENDS? I THINK ITS BETTER OF THAT WAY.
THOMAS- Be friends? (turns with a huge smile). Sure! I’d love to be friends. That’s the natural evolution of most relationships. Have a fling and then boom… friends. I’m sure some of the best friendships started that way. (overly enthusiastic) I look forward to hanging out with you, buddy. (yells) That would be GREAT!
JASEY- PLEASE DON’T BE UPSET THIS IS FOR GREATER GOOD. My feelings Aren’t there for you, please understand.
THOMAS- What? Upset? No, I’m not upset. Why would I be… upset…
(starts to cry)
JASEY- PLEASE DON’T CRY, DON’T MAKE THIS HARD FOR ME.
THOMAS- No, I’m not crying. And how is this hard for you? You’re not the one in misery, pain!
(bursts in to tears)
JASEY-THIS IS HARD FOR ME, BECAUSE I HAVE TO BREAK UP WITH YOU. PLAESE I DON’T WANT TO SEE YOU IN PAIN, THINK OF THIS AS NEW BEGGINING ,DON’ BE SAD.
THOMAS-I don’t want your pity. I don’t want a shoulder to cry on. I want… to be left…
(yells) …ALONE! Don’t you get it. I want to be alone!
(pauses… sadly reflects)
I’ve always wanted to be alone. I never wanted to get close to anyone. I never wanted us to get close. And I guess I was closer to you than you were to me.
JASEY-I LOVED YOU, YOU WERE MY EVERYTHING, BUT I COULDN’T HANDLE THE PRESSURE OF… loving you I was not ready for commitment.
THOMAS – Don’t lie to me. I know you don’t mean it. I don’t want to hear any more lies! I don’t want you to make something up so you can get out of this. Fuck the commitment, you told me you loved, then cheat, I want it all laid out on the table.
I want to know the truth!
(long pause… cries… then manages to say)
I want to know why you are breaking my heart.
