SCENE 9 – INT Classroom
WILL: Yeah you’re pretty but is there anything else?
JASMINE: What are you saying?
MITCH: He’s calling you stupid. I don’t think you’re helping your case either.
JASMINE: So what are you saying Mitch?
WILL: I think he’s telling you that you’re acting stupid now.
JASMINE: I’m smarter than you William.
WILL: It’s Will. Only my grandparents call me William. And in response to your other comment – ha.
MITCH: Don’t do this Jasmine.
CALLUM: Break it up you lot! Is it that hard to get along? I doubt it. You don’t see anyone else struggling to manage it do you? No. So put the sexual tension away and shut up. Thanks.
WILL: Bad morning?
CALLUM: No. I’m just not happy about you ruining my afternoon.
WILL: And the sexual tension remark?
CALLUM: Between you and Mitch.
CALLUM: I’ve been watching for a while and I know you well.
CALLUM: Oh I know. You aren’t. But he is and you don’t help matters.
WILL: Oh well. So why such a good morning?
CALLUM: Been out. Had some peace and quiet.
WILL: And the date with Linda?
CALLUM: Oh let me guess. You saw us leave?
CALLUM: Saw us together?
CALLUM: Overheard her talking about it?
WILL: She’s been as quiet as you on the matter.
CALLUM: Then what?
WILL: I was nosy. I saw a text she was sending to, presumably her friend, about it.
CALLUM: I’m sure that crosses boundaries.
WILL: And not telling me doesn’t?
CALLUM: I trust you. It’s just that it’s not really official yet and I don’t want to spook her.
WILL: I shouldn’t have told Beth then?
CALLUM: I hate you sometimes.
WILL: I love you too!
