SCENE 13 EXT. Callum’s House
MIRANDA: Good day?
CALLUM: The usual. Yours? I’m guessing short at least.
MIRANDA: You are clever aren’t you!
CALLUM: I’d say observant but go on.
MIRANDA: Not a lot to do today. Same track over and over.
CALLUM: Music or running?
CALLUM: What kind of track? I know it makes practically no difference to your metaphor but it’s the little things that mean something.
MIRANDA: What is the difference?
CALLUM: Running is where it’s boring from day one and you just get tired as you go on. Music starts off good and you’re hooked but after a while you know it off by heart and can repeat it without even thinking about it.
CALLUM: I think too much. Miranda, I need to talk to you.
MIRANDA: Music track. What about Cal?
CALLUM: Me and you.
MIRANDA: I’m assuming it’s still a no. So why are you bringing it up?
CALLUM: Closure. I’m trying to help. I’ve got a girlfriend.
MIRANDA: Right. Am I supposed to congratulate you?
CALLUM: That’s not the point.
MIRANDA: Then why?
CALLUM: Because I know you. I’ve known you for long enough to know that every time you ask me, you think I’ll say yes. You hope with all of your heart and I don’t want to hurt you anymore. I’m doing the right thing. I’m freeing you.
MIRANDA: You’re freeing me from you? Isn’t that a bit self-centred? The world doesn’t revolve around you Cal! I don’t think it’s me that needs to get over you – you do!
CALLUM: This was a mistake.
