'Where's he gone now?'
'Abba! We're already late. Interval must have finished by now.'
'It's not as if there's anything exciting happening in the movie. And anyway-'
'And anyway what?'
'Dude. Ok, don't turn around, but look right next to the popcorn cart thing.'
'Dude! There, right next to-'
'Almighty flying fuck. Underground torpedo fuck even.'
'Dude, you do not know how to swear. Please stop trying. But yeah, fuck.'
'Hey, I'm back, what did I miss?'
'Next to the popcorn.'
'What did I do in my life to be treated in this horrible way? I mean, there has got to be some sort of fairness in this world.'
'Ummm, you went out with her.'
'Then you dumped her.'
'And then went out with her best friend.'
'Who you also dumped.'
'Dude, whom you also dumped.'
'Whatever. And now she's here, watching, this is actually quite funny, watching a film where the hero breaks the hearts of two of the heroines. So I'd say this is quite fair.'
'This is, in fact, hilarious. We should make our lives into a TV serial.'
'Yeah, like Friends. We'll call this episode "The One Where Pranita Returns!'
'OH SHIT! She's seen me.'
'OK, dude, if anything happens, we don't know you.'
'Fuck you. Do something.'
'HAHAHAHA. She's coming towards us.'
'Ok Ok, I'll talk to her.'
'But you don't even know her!'
'Well, since you don't want to talk to her, and the last girl this fellow talked to is still recovering in a mental hospital, I'm the only person here to do this.'
'OK, how about, SHE DOESN'T KNOW YOU!'
'Who cares? Let him talk to her, and if she gets totally creeped out, then she definitely won't talk to you. And the last girl I talked was perfectly fine. In fact, I'm going to watch a movie with her on Thursday.'
'WHAT!? Y-y-yyyyou're going on a date?'
'Ok, we'll talk about this later. Operation: Distract Pranita happens now.'
what i'm hoping to do is just create snapshots of these three nameless peoples lives. verbal images, that sort of thing. i also didn't realise this until oh, say three minutes ago? anyway, i had a lot of fun writing this. i could so see this happening in my head. I wanted to introduce a fourth character, but then i decided that this was already too long. next time, maybe. what i really like about the conversations is that they never take me more than ten twelve minutes to write, unlike this other story im working on, which ive been writing for the last month, and ive got about an eighth of the way in
