COLLIDING MEMORIES

INT. ATLAS'S LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Atlas sits up on the couch from her nap, shocked at another
memory of Levi. She stretches and gets up.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
I should get started on that
paperwork.
                                                            
Atlas climbs the stairs to her room where her computer is to
work on the paperwork.
                                                            
 
INT. ATLAS'S BEDROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Atlas finishes up her paperwork for the night, exshausted
                                                            
                       ATLAS
Okay now that that's done, I
should head to bed. I hope I don't
have another memory.
                                                            
Switching off the computer, Atlas changes for bed and climbs
under the covers. But she doesn't fall asleep, she lays
awake, thinking.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
      (Whispers)
Why can't I get you out of my
head? It's been 10 years since I
saw you but you still cloud my
mind.
                                                            
She closes her eyes, finally falling into sleeps arms with
him on her mind.
                                                            
 
EXT. ATLANTIS - DAY
                                                            
Atlas stands behind the register, helping Mary with the
customers.
                                                            
                       MARY
Thanks for coming to help, Atlas,
I don't know what I would have
done with that rush of people
earlier.
                                                            

2.

                       ATLAS
No problem! I may own this place
but I love to help out when I can.
How's the kiddos?
                                                            
                       MARY
      (Smiles)
Their a handful, Brian just
started middle school so that's
interesting.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
      (Laughs)
I bet, I miss the little buggers.
When are they going to come back
in?
                                                            
Atlas rings up the customer in front of her while looking
around.
                                                            
                       MARY
We can all go out for lunch
tomorrow if you want? It's a
weekend so they don't have school.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
      (Excited)
Sure! I cant wait to see them! Its
almost 3 now, I can finish up here
so you can get home to them.
                                                            
                       MARY
Thanks, I'll see you tomorrow at 1
by the café?
                                                            
                       ATLAS
      (Nods)
Yeah, see you tomorrow. Bye Mary!
                                                            
Mary grabs her bag and leaves, the door clicking shut behind
her.
                                                            
After Mary leaves, a guy walks in behind her.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
      (thinks)
Wow, his blue eyes are striking.
And his brown hair makes them look
brighter.
                                                            
The mysterious guy walks around for a bit before grabbing
something and heads towards her.
                                                            

3.

                       ATLAS
Is that all?
                                                            
                       
Yes.
                                                            
                       
      (thinks)
Is it really her? After all this
time could it really be her?
                                                            
                       ATLAS
Okay, that will be $14.78.
                                                            
He pays and his hand brushes hers when he reaches.
                                                            
                       
Um. I was wondering if you'd like
to get coffee after your shift?
                                                            
                       ATLAS
      (raises eyebrow)
Like a date?
                                                            
                       
No! Uh I mean more like to hang
out?
                                                            
                       ATLAS
      (Laughs)
Alright, well this place is pretty
dead right now so let me close up
and we can go.
                                                            
                       
Sweet! Need help?
                                                            
                       ATLAS
No I think I can manage. You wait
here.
                                                            
Atlas moves from behind the counter and moves towards the
door to switch the sign to closed.
                                                            
Atlas heads back to the unknown guy and smiles.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
Okay I'm ready.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
      (thinks)
For some reason I feel like I can
trust him.
                                                            

4.

                       
Great, let's go.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
Lead the way.
                                                            
They leave together, heading towards the nearby café.
                                                            
 
EXT. CAFE - EVENING
                                                            
                       
So what made you move out here?
                                                            
                       ATLAS
How did you know I didn't grow up
here?
                                                            
                       
Uhhh, just a hunch.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
You know there's something
familiar about you...
                                                            
                       
There is?
                                                            
                       ATLAS
Yeah, but I can't figure out why.
                                                            
                       
Maybe I have one of those faces?
                                                            
                       ATLAS
Maybe...
                                                            
                       
      (thinks)
Oh no, she might figure it out. I
knew I should have stayed away...
                                                            
                       ATLAS
It's getting pretty late, I think
we've been here for like 2 hours.
                                                            
                       
Oh wow, I didn't even realize. Can
I walk you home?
                                                            
                       ATLAS
Sure, let's go.
                                                            

5.

They get up and head out again, the sun just setting.
                                                            
Atlas takes his hand in hers, smiling to herself
                                                            
 
EXT. OUTSIDE ATLAS'S HOUSE - EVENING
                                                            
They walk in silence and eventually end up at her door.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
Well goodnight I suppose.
                                                            
                       
Goodnight
                                                            
                       
Noah.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
What?
                                                            
                       NOAH
My name. It's Noah.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
I'm Atlas.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
Do you want to come in? I have
movies and popcorn?
                                                            
                       NOAH
That sounds nice, yeah.
                                                            
Noah climbs the steps beside her and they go inside.
                                                            
 
INT. ATLAS'S LIVING ROOM - NIGHT
                                                            
Noah sits on the couch while Atlas makes popcorn.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
Hope you like yours with a lot of
butter.
                                                            
                       NOAH
Yeah, yeah I do.
                                                            
                       NOAH
      (thinks)
She still likes butter on her
popcorn. Same old Atlas.
                                                            

6.

Atlas comes back in and puts the popcorn on the table,
sitting on the couch.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
Oooo I love this movie! Star Trek
is amazing!
                                                            
                       NOAH
Haha, still your favorite huh?
                                                            
                       ATLAS
What? Still my favorite?
                                                            
                       NOAH
Oh I mean!
                                                            
                       ATLAS
No, stop lying. That's not the
first time you've said something
like that today. I want answers,
who are you?
                                                            
                       NOAH
We went to high school together,
you didn't talk to me but I
sometime heard you talking about
this movie.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
Okay...Let's just watch the movie.
                                                            
 
INT. ATLAS'S LIVING ROOM - MORNING
                                                            
Atlas wakes up in Noah's arms and wonders how she got there.
                                                            
                       NOAH
Morning sleeping beauty.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
I must have fell asleep last
night. Sorry about falling asleep
on you.
                                                            
                       NOAH
It's fine.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
Well since you're already here, do
you want some breakfast?
                                                            
                       NOAH
Sure, I can help?
                                                            

7.

                       ATLAS
Noah it's fine, I can handle
cooking.
                                                            
                       NOAH
Yes ma'am
                                                            
                       ATLAS
      (Laughs)
                                                            
Atlas gets up to cook.
                                                            
                       NOAH
Hey Atlas, can I take a shower?
                                                            
                       ATLAS
Yeah sure, the bathroom is through
that door there.
                                                            
Noah heads to the bathroom and shuts the door behind him.
                                                            
Atlas cooks breakfast and sets out the food.
                                                            
Noah comes out of the bathroom with the same clothes from
yesterday on.
                                                            
                       ATLAS
Food's ready.
                                                            


FADE OUT.
