AZUMI opens the door.
AZUMI: I hate your guts.
BILLY: I hate my guts, too. Least we hate the same guy, right?
AZUMI: Why do you do this to me?
BILLY: I just went on a whole rant about it.
AZUMI: It’s all true?
BILLY: It’s worse than that but I figured I’d give you the “stuck on the other side of the door” version.
AZUMI: Not funny.
BILLY: Not trying to be funny.
AZUMI: Why is your face so bad?
BILLY: I told ya I got the sh’t kicked out of me but escaped. You have no idea. I have some glass stuck in my side here…
BILLY lifts his shirt to reveal a sharp piece of glass sticking in his side.
Need help pulling it out.
AZUMI: How did you—
BILLY: I dove through a second floor window, landed on a pile of garbage pails and got away, but the glass caught me in my side.
AZUMI: Come inside.
AZUMI widens the gap of the door.
BILLY enters her apartment.
BILLY: Place hasn’t changed, but, (pointing) what happened to the couch I bought you?
AZUMI: I set it on fire.
AZUMI: Now it looks like an art piece.
BILLY inspects couch.
BILLY: It really does. Yeah…ha, ha!
AZUMI: Shut up.
AZUMI: Take off your shirt.
BILLY takes off his shirt.
AZUMI goes into another room.
BILLY: Do you have some of my clothes and sh’t still here or did you burn those, too?
AZUMI: I burned everything.
