TOM WRITES HIS FIRST MOVIE: The big confrontation.

I am still at it, writing my first movie script which I collect HERE.

Here's today's entry. We're pushing towards the big finale, from here things will be moving at a really quick pace. I have a hell of an ending coming.




EXT - DOUGLAS' HOUSE

Bryce pulls into a the driveway of a small, one level house in a dingy part of town. Bryce sits for a second collecting his thoughts, he pulls the gun out of his waistband and looks hard at it. Bryce has a moment of clarity and decides to put the gun away into his glove compartment. Bryce steps out of car door, heads to the back door of his u-haul and opens it. He starts pulling Douglas' things out of the truck and putting them on the font lawn, hoping to just leave Douglas his things and without confrontation. That's wishful thinking, Douglas comes bursting out of the front door.


DOUGLAS
HEY! 

Bryce doesn't answer him, he keeps pulling Douglas' things out of the truck.

DOUGLAS
You want to tell me what that the fuck you're doing?

BRYCE
Douglas, I am just giving you your things back.

DOUGLAS
Why are YOU giving me my things back?

BRYCE
Would you rather have Abby's dad do this?

DOUGLAS
Where's Abby?

BRYCE
Douglas...I don't want to get into this.

DOUGLAS
 Stay away from her.

BRYCE
Are you kidding me?

DOUGLAS
It's funny how this worked out isn't it? I am out of the picture and no less than a month later you move right in.

Bryce doesn't answer him, he stares a hole through Douglas.

DOUGLAS
I know it was you Bryce.

BRYCE
What?

DOUGLAS
I know it was you. The note. The dolls. I know it was you. How did you do it? Did you have a key all along? Did Abby give you a house key?

Douglas' teeth grit, his hands ball into a fist. Bryce takes notice, he glances towards the truck, gauging how much distance is between him and the glove compartment. 

DOUGLAS
When I caught you in that house...what were you doing there? Why did you come back? 

Douglas is getting more and more animated.

DOUGLAS
Abby turned you away, I was there. I saw you leave! I saw her send you away.

BRYCE
You were watching us?

DOUGLAS
What were you doing sneaking back into her house? What were you going to do to her?

Bryce sees how angry Douglas is getting, he starts to back his way towards the truck. Douglas follows him.

BRYCE
I wasn't IN her house. I went home that night. YOU were the one who snuck into her house.

DOUGLAS
Yeah I did, after I saw someone climb through her window.

BRYCE
Oh yeah? You saw that while you were stalking us?

DOUGLAS
YES!

BRYCE
You really are sick.

DOUGLAS
I am getting real tired of hearing that.

Bryce backs right up to his truck and reaches for the door.

DOUGLAS
You're running away?

BRYCE
No.

Bryce dashes into his car, Douglas follows him. Douglas grabs a hold of Bryce and forcibly pulls him out of the car.

DOUGLAS
We're not done talking!

Bryce responds with gun pointed right at Douglas, Douglas takes a step back.

BRYCE
You're crazy and you're dangerous and you're going to leave Abby alone. I swear to god I'll kill you.

DOUGLAS
Shoot.

BRYCE
Take your shit, never come back. If you do I'll be there waiting to put a bullet in you. I won't let you hurt her.

DOUGLAS
Hurt her? All I've ever done is protect her. I've taken it on the CHIN for that girl. I've been arrested, shot at, beat up and arrested again all because some psycho wouldn't leave us alone. You know what the worst part is? I didn't believe her. I thought she was making it all up. She wasn't was she?

BRYCE
No. She wasn't.

DOUGLAS
You're going to have to kill me.

Bryce is genuinely temped to do it, instead he backs up to his truck. Never lowering his gun. He makes it to his truck and gets in.

DOUGLAS
You ruined my life. This won't ever be over.

Bryce doesn't respond, he pulls out of the driveway and speeds off. Douglas' things spill out of his truck as he leaves.

Cont'd...
