Jason and Sasha are high school sweethearts. One day Jason notices something about his girlfriend that concerns him and when he decides to investigate further he discovers that Sasha is keeping a secret from him.
Ext. Sasha’s HOUSE – AFTER SCHOOL
Jason is standing at Sasha’s door with hot chicken and rice soup and crackers he got from a local diner. He rings the doorbell. Moments later Sasha answers the door. She’s wearing a jacket and a tank top. Jason can see the hint of bruising on the shoulder of her tank strap.
Hey I got you some soup.
Why aren’t you at practice? Dad will be furious that his star player isn’t at practice.
Yeah, well my sick girlfriend is far more important than some measly basketball practice. There’ll be others.
Jason hands her the bag of soup.
Sasha takes the soup and closes the door.
Jason stops the door with his hand again.
I thought since I did a noble deed that I could come in.
No! You can’t come in while dad isn’t here.
Jason looks confused.
Since when? We use to hang out all the time while your ol’ man was away. What’s going on? You’ve been acting really strange lately. First the text, acting distant and missing school. You don’t even look remotely sick by the way.
I’m acting the same as I always have. You’re the one acting weird. Questioning my every move and trying to get me in trouble.
I’m not trying to get you in trouble. I just want to see you. I’m sorry.
Yeah well. Thank you for the soup, but I gotta go.
Sasha shuts the door in his face again. Jason steps away.
Something’s going on here.
