The Best Friend in Life

Act II

Narrator: While Tiffany shares with Grace about the problems encountered, Paul wanders in the park alone and tries to calm himself down. Seemingly alright, his heart is filled with anger and disappointment. Paul bumps into Steve, who is walking his dog happily in the park. Steve greets Paul; the two chat under a big tree.

Steve:

Dude, are you ok? You look awful!

Paul:

[Low in spirit] Do I? I thought I look fine...

Steve:

Your eyes show, Paul. What's happened?

Paul:

Tiffany and I just had an argument and I have not slept well for about one week.

Steve:

Sorry to hear that. What was the argument about? [Pause.]
Wait, are you still busy with the Shakespeare assignment? Look at the dark circles under your eyes!

Paul:

She made a few changes on my paper without asking me first.

Steve:

Intro to Shakespeare?

Paul:

Yep.

Steve:

Oh..., you must be angry.

Paul:

Yeah… I am so tired and frustrated after the argument.

Steve:

I know. Arguments are exhausting.

Narrator: Paul does not reply. Instead, he sits back and leans on the trunk quietly. Steve accompanies Paul without saying too much; he also sits there with him. Paul lies on the green grass and looks into the blue sky. Steve, on the other hand, plays with his dog, Talky, not far from Paul. The tranquil interaction lasts for a while; there isn't too much conversation between the two until Paul starts talking again.

Paul:

What about you? Ever argued with Grace?

Steve:

Of course, but not about Shakespeare, though. She reads Harry Potter and talks about Calculus. Hamlet does not exist in her world.

Paul:

[Laugh out loud.]

Steve:

Feeling better?

Paul:

Yeah. Thanks, man. That's funny. [Pause.]
Steve, why is it so hard for Tiffany to understand how I feel and what I am going through?

Steve:

What do you mean?

Paul:

We both major in English. It's a plain fact that it's not easy to handle this course. But she doesn't seem to understand or be very supportive at all.

Steve:

I think Tiffany was trying to show her concern for you.

Paul:

Are you sure? But what kind of support is this?! I really don't get it.

Steve:

I mean it's more about how guys and girls think and act; our majors don't really lead to problems.

Paul:

Like Tiffany crying and me slamming the door?

Steve:

You didn't slam the door, Paul.

Paul:

Yeah, I know I shouldn't have done that; I was really mad.

Steve:

Well … it's one kind of difference. But slamming the door… That hurts.

Paul:

I know. I'll apologize. Well, I'll try. [Pause.] What about you and Grace? You two always seem so peaceful.

Steve:

It doesn't happen overnight, dude. She used to complain that I never told her how I felt while I thought it was obvious enough for her to understand.

Paul:

Tiffany said the same thing, too! But my face always shows how I feel!

Steve:

But your face doesn't tell her what you need.

Paul:

Tell her? You mean with my own lips and tongue?

Steve:

Yeah! Well, there are also other means: e-mail, a short note or something. You know what I mean.

Paul:

No, no, no. It's just not me. I don't "tell" a person how I feel with words.

Steve:

Odd. Aren't you doing so right now?

Paul:

It's different!

Steve:

How?

Paul:

She's my girlfriend. If I tell her, it's like bowing down to her! Besides, she's the one who made me angry.

Steve:

Well, if that's how you perceive the case, I can offer another solution. Actually, it's my favorite one.

Paul:

What? Oh, I know what you are going to say. [Mocking.] Pray?

Steve:

I know you don't believe that, but...

Paul:

How is that a solution? You just talk to someone whom you can't and never will be able to see.

Steve:

You've never wondered why I pray so often? Never wondered about whom I am "talking" to?

Paul:

Jesus?

Steve:

Yep.

Paul:

He's dead.

Steve:

You believe that he's dead.

Paul:

[A bit loud in tone; impatiently.] Yeah, and you believe he's alive!

Steve:

Not alive. He was crucified and raised from the dead. Dude, you won't believe or experience his comfort and might unless you give him a chance!

Paul:

Steve, please. I've had enough lectures today. Don't preach now, alright? Even though I know you care about me.

Steve:

OK. I'll zip it up.

Paul:

Thanks. [Pause.] Basketball?

Steve:

Sure.

[To be continued.]
