Drama scene from one-act eplay, “Cartwheel Leaf”, Filipina admits that she likes a guy that everyone always makes fun of.
FILIPINA: …How’d you end off with Goldilocks?
RIZA: Me and Goldy are cool. Who knows? (Beat.) What about you?
FILIPINA: What about me?
RIZA: You never talk about guys.
RIZA: You into guys?
RIZA: Brian was feeling you.
FILIPINA: Eh, I wasn’t…don’t know. He’s not my type.
RIZA: You’ve been close with a guy before?
FILIPINA: …I don’t know…
RIZA: You ain’t ever kissed before?
FILIPINA: Yeah, I’ve kissed.
FILIPINA: Before I moved here.
RIZA: (Letting it go.)
FILIPINA: I like Cricket.
FILIPNA: Yeah, Cricket’s cute.
RIZA: CRICKET??!! For real?!
RIZA: That’s mad.
FILIPINA: So, what?
RIZA: Cricket…he’s like the last…everybody beats on him though…why you feelin’ Cricket?
FILIPINA: He’s kind to me. I like how he doesn’t act confident around me…he’s himself…awkward…I like that there’s no hidden agenda..and I like that he’s, I don’t know, he’s weird, unusual, shy, but smart..really smart..even though he doesn’t look smart. I like that about him. He’s soft-spoken, which I also like, ’cause I come from a loud family. Everyone shouting all of the time, so his voice is soothing. He likes comics and graphic novels and he’s got me into some cool Anime. I just like that he’s himself.
RIZA: He’s a bit odd though.
FILIPINA: What do you find odd about him?
RIZA: He tags along, never participates.
FILIPINA: He’s…he’s a bit in his own world, I guess.
