Two Shots Can Change The World [Part 5]

Charlie (yelling at her): SHOOT HIM!

(After a short tussle, Charlie’s got Peter in a headlock. Still, the gun is in Peter’s hand, pressed against Charlie’s side. Rosaline stands up slowly, the other gun in her hands.)

Charlie: I SAID SHOOT HIM! DAMN IT!

(Rosaline looks back and forth between the two guys, trying to decide what to do. Pressure. Pressure. Pressure.)

Charlie: DAMN IT ROSE! SHOOT!

(Peter takes advantage of her hesitation and breaks free of Charlie, standing in front of Rosaline. He holds out his hand for the other gun but Rosaline shakes her head quickly, tears forming in her eyes.)

Peter (whispering to Rosaline): He hits you, doesn’t he?

Rosaline: No.

(She is obviously lying; it’s very difficult to hide the truth when all you want to do is blurt it out to the world.)

Peter: Rosaline, don’t lie to me. Pretend like he’s not standing right there.

The End
