BEAST X Chapter 5 Pt 1
FADE IN:
A week passes since the badminton game and Nina tells us what happened during that time.
NINA (V.O)
It’s been a week since we played badminton. A lot of things happened: some have noticed Aaron is not looking good lately. Even small activities tire him out, or he has to leave suddenly if he’s not feeling well. But, when we ask what’s wrong or suggest that he see Rafe’s dad, who’s a doctor, Aaron insists that he’s fine. Rafe insists on keeping an eye on him, since Aaron always says he’s fine even when he doesn’t look like he is. Although it’s not my business, I can’t help but to worry.
Oh yeah, since the game, Ashley and Kate no longer blackmail people of their secrets. Most people seem at ease but still not comfortable to be around them since Kate can’t control her power. And speaking of them...
A scene shows everyone in class, and Ms. M. introducing two new students. As she got their attention,

BEAST X Chapter 4
FADE IN:
It has been two weeks since Nina has settled in the academy. She narrates her experiences as the scenes go on.
NINA (V.O)
(shows campus, students, hallways, and the class) It’s been two weeks since I arrived. Surprisingly, I’m settling in well. Aside from Ms. M., the class likes me, for the most part. (shift to Hideki) Blonde guy still doesn’t like me after our argument, but he hasn’t said or done anything since. Guessing he’s keeping his guard up.
(shifts to the girls) Oh yeah, I found out the girls’ names: Ashley and Kate. Ashley is the one with a ponytail, and Kate is the one with a blank stare. They’re both in Class 3-C (shows Nina and Sid helping Yuki) Yuki said I should be careful with them, since one of them can read people’s minds. Oh, speaking of, I found myself hanging out mostly with the guys and Yuki. I got to know them a little.
(points to the group in order) So, Aaron wasn’t lying when he compare

FADE IN:
It’s the next morning and Nina gets up from bed. She goes to brush her teeth and notices some girls staring at her, but they look away when she turns. She pays no mind and goes back to her room to put on her ribbon and uniform. She looks at herself in the mirror.
NINA
[Okay, maybe it doesn’t look so bad.] (remembers how the girls looked at her before) [It’s already my first morning and already I made a not-so-good impression... can’t imagine how class will be.] (gets her school bag with her ID, class schedule, and keys) Let’s get this over with.
Nina then leaves the room and locks the door. She takes a deep breath and heads down the hallway. Nina is outside the dormitory and sees other students walking around and about.
NINA
[Here we go.]
She then starts walking as the leaves begin to fall in her direction.
TRANSITION: Students are heading to class and Nina is seen trying to find her classroom. She checks her

FADE IN:
A week passes since the badminton game and Nina tells us what happened during that time.

NINA (V.O)
It’s been a week since we played badminton. A lot of things happened: some have noticed Aaron is not looking good lately. Even small activities tire him out, or he has to leave suddenly if he’s not feeling well. But, when we ask what’s wrong or suggest that he see Rafe’s dad, who’s a doctor, Aaron insists that he’s fine. Rafe insists on keeping an eye on him, since Aaron always says he’s fine even when he doesn’t look like he is. Although it’s not my business, I can’t help but to worry.

Oh yeah, since the game, Ashley and Kate no longer blackmail people of their secrets. Most people seem at ease but still not comfortable to be around them since Kate can’t control her power. And speaking of them...

A scene shows everyone in class, and Ms. M. introducing two new students. As she got their attention, everyone sees a familiar face as she popped into the classroom.

KATE
Two new students? I wonder who it could be? What? It’s really -

EVERYONE
(shocked) KATE???

SERENA
Wait, then...

JAMIE
(worried) That means -

ASHLEY
(pops into the classroom) Well, hi guys! (smug) Looks we’ll be spending more time together for the rest of the year.

Everyone except Kira, Toma, and Hideki shrieks after realizing that both Ashley and Kate are now enrolled in their class.

NINA (V.O)
Yeaahh... Apparently their class is full and needed to transfer some students out... but, it doesn’t seem like they had no choice since they’re settling in okay... (shows Ashley being smug with some of the guys) well, for the most part anyway. Kate seems to be doing well... (shows her being around Nina too much) would be better if she didn’t cling to me too often. I can understand why, but... it’s just weird for me.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but Hideki seems a little more... friendly? He’s still kind of brash, but not as much as usual. I do notice that he talks to Yuki here and there, which is... unexpected, if you look at their personalities. But they seem to get along okay, which is good.

Since I’ve been here, I’ve tried leaving the school alone, but the RA’s and teachers are very stern about the rules: I can go only if it’s a ‘school trip’ or I’m with someone. No exceptions. That’s kind of a pain, but there is a trip this weekend. Maybe I’ll be able to find the guys who killed Rei. Hopefully I’ll be able to go. (screen turns black)

TRANSITION: The screen remains black until we see a younger Aaron, surrounded by many people. They are criticizing him for his weakness and that he’s not worthy of anything. He covers his ears as he crouches down.

Tears start to run down his face as he begs them to stop. Light starts to emerge and a sound can be heard from afar. Aaron wakes up to his alarm clock and slowly turns it off. He covers his face as he lays facing up, seemingly groggy.


AARON
[A dream?... I wonder how long it’s been since I left home...]

He slowly gets up, clutching to his chest. He gets ready as he gathers his thoughts.

AARON (CONT’D)
[It’s been almost a week.. I’ve been taking the meds, but nothing’s changed.. I keep telling everyone I’m fine. But they still worry, especially Rafe. No one can know... they’ll just get more worried...]

Aaron is seen fully clothed and looks at himself in the mirror. He notices his face and looks more groggy.

AARON (CONT’D)
[Damn, I look like crap. But I missed class twice this week... I can’t miss any more or people will worry even more.] (pause) [I feel a little better now. I should be fine.]

He leaves the dorm and gets distracted by a green butterfly fluttering nearby. As he looks at it, Aaron bumps into an older boy with long hair. He was irritated but soon recognizes Aaron.

BOY WITH LONG HAIR
Hey! Watch where you’re - Aaron?

AARON
(silly pain face) Sorry, I didn’t mean to - (looks at the boy, surprised) L-Leo?? Ohmygod, I am so sorry. Please don’t burn me.

LEO
What? No, why would I - (sighs, then looks at him) Anyway, you’re okay?

AARON
Huh? Yeah, I didn’t bump into you too hard, did I?

LEO
(crosses his arms) You know what I mean.

AARON
(realizes what he’s talking about) Oh... I’m fine, really, I am. I’m just tired, you know?

LEO
When was the last you saw the doctor? You look like you’re getting worse by the day. Are you taking your meds?

AARON
What? Of course I am. Leo, I’m fine, honestly. I -

LEO
Come on, I’ll take you.

AARON
W-wha?

LEO
You’re not a good liar, and God knows how long you’ll put this off. You’ll get a note if anything.

AARON
But, Leo -

LEO
No buts, let’s go.

Feeling defeated, Aaron reluctantly goes with Leo to the infirmary. Leo tries to make conversation as they walk on the way.

LEO (CONT’D)
So, I heard about the girl who transferred here a few weeks ago. (this catches Aaron’s attention) She cool?

AARON
Oh, you mean Nina? (Leo nods) Yeah, she’s cool. A bit blunt, but.. I think she’s getting comfortable being here. (blushes) Besides that, I think she’s a good person.

LEO
(gives him a smug look) ... You have a crush on her, do you?

AARON
(embarrassed) Huh?? N-no I don’t! I just think she’s nice is all!

LEO
Mhmm. (pause) Listen, be careful around her.

AARON
(confused) Huh? Why?

LEO
I don’t know... She seems to have an agenda of her own.. or there’s more to her that you guys don’t know. (looks at Aaron) You know what I mean?

AARON
(aware of what he means, doesn’t look happy) I’m sure she has her reasons... but she’s really trying. And she’s helped us with badminton, so that says a lot about her, right?

LEO
Don’t let your emotions cloud your judgment. That’s what got you here in the first - (sees Aaron not happy with that statement) Look, I’m not saying she’s bad news or anything. Just... be wary, okay? Sorry if it came out wrong.

AARON
... It’s fine.

They both arrive at the doctor’s office. Before they realize it, Rafe is in there at the back with his father, talking about something.

LEO
Okay, here we are -

RAFE
Do you have to go? Who’s gonna watch Kota while you’re gone and Aiko in the hospital?

RAFE’S FATHER
I already have a babysitter who’ll take care of him. You don’t have to worry.

RAFE
(annoyed, crosses arms) I don’t trust other people with my brother.

RAFE’S FATHER
Rafe...

RAFE
Just bring him here and I’ll take care of him till you come back.

RAFE’S FATHER
You know better than to ask that. (Rafe looks away annoyed) Please, believe me. I know the sitter’s parents, Kota’ll be fine.

RAFE
... Yeah, sure. (sarcastic) I’ll try to have faith. Let’s have a drink and some crackers while we relax.

RAFE’S FATHER
...Stop it.

Both Leo and Aaron head over, calling out to Rafe’s father.

LEO
Hey doc. You’re busy?

RAFE’S FATHER
Ah, Leo. No, we’re just about finished.

Rafe crosses his arms and looks away from his father.

RAFE’S FATHER (CONT’D)
Is something wrong?

LEO
Oh no, it’s not me. (Aaron comes over) I’m just escorting my cousin.

AARON
(pouts his lips) More like dragged over.

RAFE
(notices Aaron, worried) Oh jeez, did you -

AARON
(tries to be reassuring) Nothing happened, I swear. Just my cousin being on my case.

LEO
Can it. (to Rafe's dad) Anyway, I just want you to give him a quick check up, just in case. I’m just a little worried. (to Aaron) And don’t lie, or I’ll set your pants on fire.

AARON
You wouldn’t do that.

LEO
(small flame on his index finger) Wanna bet?

AARON + RAFE
(sweatdrop) Don’t do that here!!

RAFE’S FATHER
(sweatdrop while coughing) Yeahh, not a good idea. But I’ll take a look, if Aaron doesn’t mind.

LEO
(puts away his flame) My bad. And okay. I’m leaving him in your hands, doc. (waves) See you guys later.

AARON
See ya.

Leo leaves the office.

RAFE
You have a very suggestive cousin, don’t you?

AARON
(broods) You have no idea...

RAFE’S FATHER
He’s just a worried cousin like he should be. (to Aaron) Aaron, I can give you an exam right now but it may be a while, if that’s okay.

RAFE
Uh, yeah. This is overdue.

RAFE’S FATHER
Rafe.

RAFE
What?

AARON
(to both) It’s fine. I’ll do it now, sir. (brood) [I don’t want to get burned after all this, so I don’t wanna put this off.]

RANDALL
Please, call me Randall. You can sit right over there, I’ll be there in a bit. (points to the exam table behind the curtain)

AARON
Okay. (goes to the exam table)

RAFE
Seriously, are you okay?

AARON
Yes. I’m doing this now, so don’t worry. I’ll see you after this, cool?

RAFE
.. Yeah. See you later.

Just before Rafe leaves, Aaron speaks in a reassuring manner.

AARON
Try to take it easy on him. He’s trying.

RAFE
(sullen) I know. It’s just... you know.

AARON
I know. (pause) Give him some time.

RAFE
(sighs) I’ll try. Better? (Aaron nods) I’ll see you later. (heads out, to Randall) Later, dad.

RANDALL
Okay. Have a good day, son.

Rafe waves as he leaves. Aaron seems worried while Randall sighs and is gathering his supplies. Aaron then thinks about Leo’s words about Nina.

AARON
[I don’t know why he said it like he did. I’m sure there’s more to Nina than we may know... but I don’t think she’s bad at all. When I can... I’ll talk to her. I just have a feeling...]

Randall comes over and begins to do the checkup. A shot of the same butterfly he saw earlier fluttering outside the window.

TRANSITION: We see the class having their 4 minute break before their next class. People are worried about Aaron as he missed the first one after being unwell for a week. Kira keeps to herself while Yuki appears to be studying.

TOMA
Hey, you don’t think something happened to Tanashi, right? I mean, he didn’t look good this past week.

HIDEKI
(sitting back) Who knows? Not my business, but hope nothin’ happened.

TOMA
Since when you’re the worrying type?

HIDEKI
(annoyed) Like hell I am! But I’m not evil either.. Let’s just drop it.

TOMA
Okay, jeez. I’m just saying.

JAMIE
But it’s true, right? Aaron hasn’t looked well lately. And it’s been a week.

ASHLEY
Don’t you think you guys are overthinking this? Sure he’s sick, but maaaaybe there’s more to it. (puts hands up) Just my observation.

SERENA
That does make sense. We knew he’s been seeing the doctor since he came here. I just really hope it’s not too serious.

TOMA
I really, we all hope nothing is serious, too. But like Kobayashi said, if the sh*t hits the fan, we know that something that we didn’t see may definitely pop up.

While the group is talking, Nina can’t help but to think the same thing.

NINA
[As crazy as it sounds, but maybe they’re right. What if there’s more to Aaron being sick?] (puts her hand on her head) [Dammit, I said I’d stay out of it, it shouldn’t be my concern, right? But it does sound kind of scary... I just -]

KATE
What’s on your mind?

NINA
(startled) KYA! How long have you been there?!

KATE
... Just now.

NINA
(brood) Of course...

KATE
Sorry. You seemed like you were in deep thought, so I was curious.

NINA
Oh? Oh that’s right, you can’t tell what I’m thinking. (Kate shakes her head) I guess I was. It’s about Aaron, actually...

KATE
Oh I see... You like him?

NINA
(flustered) Ehh?? No! That’s not I mean!

RAFE
(smug) So it is true...

NINA
(annoyed) You stay out of this! Or should I remind you of you-know-who?

RAFE
Now that’s not fair.

NINA
Oh yeah, didn’t you see Aaron earlier?

RAFE
Huh? Oh yeah, at my dad’s office. To be honest, I didn’t think he’d go. Then again, Leo dragged him over to go. Guess he’s worried too.

SID
Leo Delgado?

RAFE
Yeah.

NINA
Who?

SID
Oh yeah, Aaron didn’t mention him to you. He’s Aaron’s cousin. A junior, actually. Kind of scary looking.

NINA
Really? How?

SID
I don’t know. From what I’ve seen of him, he has that look that tells people to stay away. I could be totally wrong, since he took Aaron to the docs and all -

RAFE
He kind of threatened that he’ll set Aaron on fire if he didn’t go through with it. So, the scary part is on point.

SID + NINA
(shocked) He actually did??

RAFE
I’m sure it’s just a bad joke. But seriously, if something is happening to Aaron and we don’t know anything...

SID
Dude, c’mon. If it was at all serious, Aaron’d tell us. This happened before and he’s turned out a-okay.

NINA
You think so?

SID
(reassuring) I know so. I have full confidence that he’ll be back to his old self before we know it. And he’s not a good liar, so I’m sure he doesn’t have anything that he’s keeping from us.

RAFE
That’s what you say... I don’t know, don’t you think it’s a bit far-fetched? Whatever it is, it’s getting worse and he’s just.. (worried)  Brushing it off like it’s not a big deal. I think there’s more to what he’s saying but it hasn’t been admitted yet.

SID
Oh man..

RAFE
(slightly annoyed) What? You’re gonna tell me to just “drop it” and “believe?”

SID
Dude, that’s not - oyy.

NINA
What?

SID
(to Nina) Rafe thinks Aaron could be lying about his... condition. But like I said, he’d tell us if -

RAFE
(upset) He might as well be! We’ve asked him, multiple times, and he keeps denying it. Even using his powers makes him tired. (sighs, then rubs his head) ... Sorry.

SID
It’s cool.

RAFE
(solemn) I just hate when people lie or... keep secrets.

SID
I know.

NINA
[Man, I don’t blame him. But... “using his powers makes him tired?” That’s... unusual. Does Aaron being sick have to do with it? But how is that even connected?] Listen, should I -

Yuki then comes over with Hideki behind her. They notice the two coming over.

YUKI
H-hi guys.

SID
Oh! Hey Yuki! (notices Hideki) Uhh.. Hideki?

HIDEKI
(slightly annoyed) What, it’s a problem that I’m here?

SID
(sweatdrop) No, just.. Didn’t think you’d come and talk to us. Sorry.

YUKI
(slightly blushes) H-Hideki...

HIDEKI
Oh, right. (to Sid) My bad, dude.

SID
Oh! It’s cool.

HIDEKI
... So I take it you guys are wondering, too? About Aaron? Since you guys are friends and all...

RAFE
Huh, didn’t take you as the caring type.

HIDEKI
Don’t push it. Anyway, I know it ain’t my business, but... I think you should try a little harder.

NINA
Try a little harder?

HIDEKI
Approaching him. But, in a different way. Cuz it looks like whatever you’re doing isn’t enough.

The group, minus Kate, is curious.

RAFE
... What are you suggesting?

HIDEKI
I don’t know. Maybe find a way that will shed some light from him in a way? Catch him off guard a little? (a little embarrassed) God, I sound like Toma just then..

NINA
... Maybe that could work.

RAFE AND SID
(shocked) What???

KATE
.... I agree.

RAFE AND SID
You’re in on this, too??

NINA
I mean, think about it. If talking isn’t gonna work, maybe something else can. I don’t know what or how exactly, but we can give it a try.

YUKI
B-but we don’t have to do it n-now, right?

NINA
Nah, it’d be too soon, and he’s just recovering so we’ll have to give some time.

RAFE
Huh... that actually doesn’t sound too bad. (to Hideki) I didn’t think you were that smart, Hideki.

SID
Yeah. I knew you were a good guy, just don’t wanna admit it.

HIDEKI
(flustered + mad) W-what, you thought I was stupid or something?! (to Sid) And don’t you get the wrong idea!

Sid gets startled while Nina and Rafe sweatdrop.

YUKI
(blush, nervous) U-umm, I think it’s a good idea, Hideki. It’s original. A-and I know you care about our c-classmates, so it’s okay if that’s the c-case. That’s what they’re t-trying to say.

A brief silence before Hideki calms down and speaks.

HIDEKI
(looks away slightly, little blush) ...Well, if you put it that way.. Thanks.

THE GROUP
That was a whole 180!

HIDEKI
So that settles it then?

NINA
Looks like it.

RAFE
Buut we’re not gonna spy on him or anything, right? That’d be excessive.

NINA
Not like that, no. (pause) It has to be like.. Ugh what’s the word? Making it not intentional or direct?

KATE
Subtle?

NINA
There we go.

RAFE
Okaay, but how?

HIDEKI
You’ll come up with something. You’re a smart guy after all.

Just as he says this, Aaron returns to class. Everyone stops what they’re doing and looks at him. When he notices them, they look away. He goes over to the gang.

AARON
Hey guys.

SID
Hey! Welcome back.

AARON
Thanks.

YUKI
Are you feeling b-better?

AARON
Yeah. It was just a bad cold, so I have meds for it. (a little embarrassed) I’m clumsy and feeble. Not a good combo, right?

Rafe looks skeptical but doesn’t try to push it any further. Nina notices and talks.

NINA
That’s cool. So that means you’re back to normal, right?

AARON
Oh, y-yeah, totally.

RAFE
... That’s good. Worst case scenario would’ve been having you in the hospital if you didn’t get better. So... glad to hear you’re okay.

Everyone except Kate had a look of shame.

NINA
[This kid really can’t hold back, can he?]

AARON
(sweatdrop) Umm... Yeah, I guess.

HIDEKI
Well, back to my chair then.

SID
Why? You don’t have to leave.

RAFE
Um, Sid, check the time.

Sid, Nina, and Yuki check the clock, and before they notice, everyone else is getting back to their original seats and Ms. M. arrives on the dot.

MS. M.
Alright, alright, let’s get settled, shall we? I have an announcement to make.

SID
(sweatdrop).. Oh.

The gang goes to their seats as Ms. M. talks.

MS. M.
So as you all know, we will be going to Circle Avenue this weekend as our trip. (a lot of people are excited) I know you’re all excited and can’t wait. But remember that we’ll only be within safety bounds, meaning only within the area and not outside. Those who break that rule will be reprimanded immediately.

NINA
[Damn. This could be an opportunity for me, but I’ll have to try to leave the area without getting caught. I’ll have to figure that out.]

MS. M.
And because we are going as a whole class, it is appropriate that everyone will be in groups of 3. All groups have been assigned, so don’t even think about pairing with friends cuz you’re not. (some people groaned) Each group is assigned a group leader to ensure your safety. (pause) Speaking of, they should be here right now -  

A sudden flash appears and 4 people appear before the class. Genji, Naomi, Leo, and another girl, who Nina doesn’t recognize.

GENJI
Sorry Miss. One of us was fashionably late.

GIRL C
Oh Gennnnnn. I wanted look my very best!~ Especially since it’s my first time co-hosting a trip!

NAOMI
Trish... You can save that for Saturday.

TRISH
Aw, but I couldn’t help it!

LEO
(annoyed, ignites fire) Save the excitement for later.

EVERYONE EXCEPT KATE, KIRA and GENJI
(scared) You’re not serious, are you????

MS. M.
(glasses glowing) While I appreciate the excitement, I think it’s best to save all of this after class. (slightly mad face) Right?

Everyone is terrified and remained silent for the rest of the time being. Ms. M. announces the assigned groups and group leaders: Yuki, Hideki, and Jamie with Naomi; Serena, Toma, and Rafe with Leo; Sid, Ashley, and Kira with Genji; and Nina, Aaron, and Kate with Trish. Everyone was given brochures of the location and trip information of where to meet for departure. Once classes are over, people are talking about their assigned group leaders. Rafe broods about Leo being their group leader while Toma teases him.

TOMA
At least a certain someone will be with us to keep the peace, right?

RAFE
Shut. Up.

SID
Man. But luckily it’s only for one day, so it’ll won’t be for long.

TOMA
That’s if that guy doesn’t burn us first.

AARON
He won’t. That’s just what he does to get us to stop acting up. Trust me, he’s not as bad as he seems.

RAFE
(sarcastic) I feel so reassured.

AARON
Stop.

Serena and Jamie are at the other side, talking as well.

SERENA
At least you have Naomi as your leader. (sweatdrop) I’m stuck with Toma.

JAMIE
At least you have Rafe. I have... (peers over at Hideki sitting alone, sweatdrop) I’m kind of scared.

SERENA
Oh hush. Hideki’s not that bad. And Yuki’ll be there, so it’s good balance.

JAMIE
True.

SERENA
(somewhat pout, to Jamie quietly) I just wish I was with Kira though... she has that mysterious aura around her..

JAMIE
(smug) I wonder why...

SERENA
(kinda red) Oh hush, you know what I mean!

JAMIE
Suuuuurree.

At the other side, Nina and Kira are talking while Ashley and Kate are together.

NINA
So... this will be a interesting one, right?

KIRA
Seems so. Good thing it’s only for one day.

NINA
You seem pretty calm about this, considering you’re with... you know.. (shifts to Ashley)

KIRA
Oh. I’m not worried. I don’t think we’ll be buddy-buddy on the trip. I’m not much of a people-person nor into chatty gossip.

NINA
(sweatdrop) No kidding...

KIRA
Sorry. Well, at least she doesn’t threaten blackmail anymore. You did that.

NINA
Oh, um... Yeah. Thanks. [Didn’t think she’d bring it up.]

KIRA
I think your friends are calling for you. (points to Sid calling and waving her over) See you tomorrow.

NINA
Cool. See ya.

The gang hundles up and leaves the classroom. Kate waves bye to Nina, who waves back. Kira glances at her before looking down.

TRANSITION: The crew is playing a card game in the boy’s dorm lounge, and Rafe receives a video call.

SID
Yeah! Got cha!

RAFE
Ugh. That was bullsh*t. You cheated.

SID
Sorry, but in this game, we don’t play fair.

AARON
It’s okay, Rafe. We have all night.

RAFE
Psh... I gotchu for the next one.

SID
Haha, we’ll see.

NINA
This may be a long night, all right.. (puts down a +4 card) Sorry, Aaron, had to.

Aaron looked and is depressed. Sid laughs while someone’s phone is ringing.

AARON
(brood) Now that’s just wrong.

SID
Someone picks up the game real fast.

RAFE
(picks up his phone, and sees his brother) Oh man, I have to take this. You guys don’t mind?

SID
Go for it. We’ll wait for you.

Rafe gets up to go to a corner to take the video call. His younger brother, Kota, is seen on the screen.

KOTA
(excited) Hi Rafe!

RAFE
(happy) Hey kiddo. How you’re doing?

KOTA
I’m okay. I finished my homework and now playing some games.

RAFE
That’s cool. Is the babysitter treating you okay?

KOTA
Yeah, she’s really nice. We had pizza and I got the robo figure that I wanted.

RAFE
That’s cool. I’m glad you’re doing okay. (pause) How’s.. Mom? I know dad’s busy.

KOTA
She’s okay. Mom should be home soon from her appointment. I think the baby will be born soon.

RAFE
Oh yeah, that’s right... [it’s that time, huh?] You think the baby’s gonna be a boy or a girl?

KOTA
Kinda want it to be a girl. There’s too many... boys.

RAFE
(laughs) Yeah there is.. I hope so, too.

KOTA
Yeah. (kind of sad) When can I see you?

RAFE
... I don’t know, kiddo. (crooked smile) Hopefully soon.

KOTA
Okay... I just miss you, that’s all. And I want you here to see the baby, too.

RAFE
Me too, buddy. (looks at the time) I don’t wanna keep you for too long. I’ll let you get back to your games, okay?  

KOTA
Okay.

RAFE
Tell mom I said hi.

KOTA
I will. Bye!

RAFE
Bye.

The video call ends and Rafe locks his phone. He looks sullen and rubs his face. He heads back to the group and is back to his old self. While playing the card game, a shot of a picture frame in Rafe’s room and the part ends with his thoughts.

RAFE
[I hope he doesn’t ever find out... and keeps doing what I can’t do anymore... Being a normal kid.]
