An unpopular guy bonds with the popular girl at her going away party when it's revealed they're the only two people who showed up.
EXT. CONDO - NIGHT
RICHARD approaches the front door. He's holding a VERY LARGE PACKAGE, GIFT WRAPPED AND RIBBONED.
He rings the DOORBELL and waits.
He rings the BELL again. Waits. Still no answer.
He tries looking through the PEEPHOLE but it's DARK inside.
Finally he tries the DOOR HANDLE. The door's UNLOCKED. He enters.
INT. CONDO - CONTINUOUS
STROBING LIGHTS paint colors through out the atmosphere. LOUND music is PLAYING.
All this exits Richard who begins to make his way upstairs.
His excitement is cut short as he reaches the main floor and discovers NO ONE!
MORE CLEAR, ABSOLUTELY NO ONE.
INT. CONDO - MAIN FLOOR - CONTINUOUS
Richard slowly makes his way through the room. He notices The banners, balloons and other party accessories that decorate the room.
On COUNTER outside of Kitchen there are tons of snacks.
INT. CONDO - KITCHEN - CONTINUOUS
He makes his way into the kitchen, there’s tons of food laid out on the stove and counters. He wrestles through containers and pots but doesn’t partake.
He looks at the fridge and sees photos, a GIRL in particular catches his eye.
He finally opens fridge and BINGO! BEER BOTTLES.
He takes a bottle. Opens up a drawer and removes a bottle opener. He opens the bottle and takes a sip, immediately spitting it out in the SINK.
As he looks up he can see a reflection coming from the outside Balcony. He can’t make out the reflection but it peeks his interest.
He goes back to the FRIDGE and pulls out two BEERS.
He makes his way toward the Balcony.
EXT. CONDO - BALCONY - CONTINUOUS
Richard enters Balcony . He notices ANNALESE sitting alone on a bench as he approaches.
Hi. I was waiting out front for minutes trying to get someone to answer the door. The door was unlocked so I just let myself in. Didn’t look like anyone was here.
Makes sense why no one answered the door.
Richard brushes off her words and her tone.
He extends the beer toward her.
I don’t drink.
But there’s a fridge full of alcohol.
Its for the people who do....
Was for the people who do.
Richard spies a chair opposite from Annalese.
You mind if I?
She shoots him a look.
Richard grabs the chair and sits down.
I’m surprised I’m the first one to show up.
You’re not the first.
What you mean? Is someone else here.
You’re not the first. You’re the only person showing up.
I don’t understand.
Everyone else has decided to go to Bellas’ party instead.
Bella decided to have a party the same day as your party?
But weren’t you all...
Friends? I thought so.
That’s so messed up. I wonder why everyone decided to go to her party instead of yours?
There were some people who were on the fence but she used the fact that everyone was going off to college so it made sense to spend the last party with the faces that were going in separate directions.
And you? You’re not going away for College?
No. I’m staying local. Juco. That was the point I think she won them with.
She brought that up?
Damn. What a bitch. I wonder where she’s going?
