FADE IN:

INT. KITCHEN - EVENING
                                                            
The kitchen is dim from the evening light coming from the
window - the blind is half drawn down. There are lights in
the kitchen coming from above the oven and the other side of
the kitchen.
Amy approaches John. She is clearly upset and slightly
aggrievated. As the scene goes on, Amy starts crying and
shaking - she wants to find out why her husband is acting
oddly.
                                                            
Amy is standing in front of John. She looks straight at him
with an upset look in her eyes.
                                                            
                       AMY
(Her voice is clam, but the
audience can tell she is upset)
Why have you been acting so
different, is there something
wrong?
                                                            
John Remains silent. He clearly wants to explain but he does
not. He looks hurt.
                                                            
Amy remains persistent
                                                            
                       AMY
(she is getting impatient)
Just tell me
                                                            
Amy moves closer to John - he remains silent and motionless,
he closes his looks down and closes his eyes. He cannot look
at Amy as he can see that she is really upset. He eventually
opens his eyes.
                                                            
Amy grabs John's shoulders and looks extremely upset and
aggravated. She shakes John's shoulders occasionally as she
speaks.
                                                            
                       AMY
(There is desperation in Amy's
voice)
Why can't you be honest with me?!
(Amy's voice becomes more hurt and
upset)
Are you cheating on me?
                                                            
John's eyes look glossy, he is clearly stopping his tears.
He remains silent.
                                                            

2.

                       AMY
(Amy is getting more aggrievated
with John, as he continues to
remain silent)
John!
                                                            
Amy grabs a cup that is placed on the counter next to her.
As she speaks she picks the cup up and throws it.
                                                            
                       AMY
(Amy's voice is raised)
Why can't you just respond to me?!
                                                            
The glass shatters on the floor and makes a loud sound. Amy
raises her hands to her face and covers her mouth - her
hands are shaking.
                                                            
John moves his hand towards Amy's face in attempt to wipe
her tears away from her face. Amy chaotically moves back and
pushed John's hand away.

John still attempts to hug Amy - she refuses his gestures
                                                            
                       JOHN
Amy...please
                                                            
Amy takes a step back
                                                            
                       JOHN
(John tries to calm amy down)
Please, shh..
                                                            
Amy gives in and lets John hug her, she hides her face in
John's shoulder.
John closes his eyes and places his face near Amy's ear.
                                                            
                       JOHN
(John whispers something into
Amy's ear but the audience cannot
make out what he is saying)

INT. LIVING ROOM - EVENING

coffee table. There is music silently playing in the
background but the scene seems silent. There is a wedding
dress and a suit laying neatly on the sofa.

leans on the doorframe and looks at the room for a second.
