Rosaline: So you did all of this just so you could prove Charlie’s … beating me?
Peter (angrily): I wanted to save you.
Rosaline (screaming in his face): WHY?! Why would you possibly want to save me?!
Narrator-Student: Secrets can’t always be kept.
(Peter sighs sadly, staring into Rosaline’s eyes. His voice comes out in a whisper, almost inaudible.)
Peter: Because … I love you. I always have and … I always will.
Rosaline (sobbing again): No, no. No! You can’t. You can’t! I’m with Charlie!
Peter: It wouldn’t matter for much longer.
Rosaline: Don’t you dare! I would hate you for the rest of your life.
Peter: Then answer one simple question. Do you love me?
Rosaline: That’s not exactly simple.
Peter: Answer it. Tell me.
(Rosaline looks on toward Charlie’s outraged expression. It frightens her. She lies, not looking either guy in the eye.)
Rosaline: No. I don’t … love you.
Peter: You liar!
(Peter places the gun on her cheek and she flinches, her whole body trembling.)
Peter: You’re lying to me because he is standing right there.
Rosaline: No! No! I swear!
Peter: My original plan was to kill him, but things can change.
Rosaline: Peter, please. Just wait two seconds.
