SCENE 10 – INT Jasmine’s House
(Image flashes to the outside of a large house then inside – JASMINE’s party is about to start.)
JASMINE: Why is it not ready yet?
JASMINE’S MOTHER: Sorry darling but we simply haven’t had time.
JASMINE: Not good enough.
JASMINE’S MOTHER: Don’t talk to me like that! We have done so much for you today!
JASMINE: But not enough!
(CALLUM enters, holding his present.)
JASMINE: (to JASMINE’S MOTHER) We’ll finish this later. (to CALLUM) Hey babe! Great to see you!
(JASMINE goes to kiss CALLUM but he turns his head and so she kisses him on the cheek.)
CALLUM: Good to see you too. I got you this.
JASMINE: Wow. Thanks!
(JASMINE opens it quickly and lifts out the necklace.)
CALLUM: I hope you like it.
JASMINE (putting it on): I love it! Best present yet!
JASMINE: Well only one.
CALLUM: What? No-one else got you anything? I suppose it is early.
JASMINE: No. From you.
CALLUM: I don’t understand.
JASMINE: You’ve never got me anything before Cal.
CALLUM: I’m sorry Jasmine.
JASMINE: But I think you’ve more than made up for it with this!
CALLUM: You look really nice tonight.
JASMINE: Even you don’t look too bad!
CALLUM: I never really noticed how beautiful you are until now.
JASMINE: Umm… Is that a compliment?
CALLUM: Yes Jasmine it is.
JASMINE: Thank you Cal. You know we’ve got some time…
CALLUM: Need any help with anything?
JASMINE: That’s what Mum’s here for.
CALLUM: Right. So…
(CALLUM follows JASMINE up the stairs.)
JASMINE: You know the way silly!
(CALLUM cautiously walks down the corridor)
