INT. MUSIC PRACTICE STUDIO - DAY
Asian A level student [SWEETAH] nervously stands leaning
against the wall of a practice room, holding a jumble of
papers. The door to the room is partially open. YOUNG ADULT
MALE BAND MEMBERS are tinkering around with their
Sweetah is engrossed as she listens with enthusiasm to the
unidentified miss-mash of music. Suddenly without warning, a
YOUNG ADULT MALE [BRANDON] bursts through the door, making
Sweetah jump. The unexpected encounter forces Sweetah to
drop her papers into a scattered pile on the floor.
Embarrassed Sweetah, nervously smiles at Brandon.
Brandom slowly runs his eyes down Sweetah’s body.
Oh, I am so sorry
Brandon bends down to gather up the loose scattered paper,
staring at Sweetah’s ankles.
Why? Don’t be
Brandon slowly gets back up and hands the pile of paper to a
Er thanks. Er have you had a chance
to view the song I wrote?
Brandan tenderly smiles at her.
Sort of, I’m off for a smoke, join
Brandan heads in the direction of the main door and Sweetah
eagerly follows him.
EXT. MUSIC PRACTICE STUDIO COURTYARD - DAY
Brandon walks briskly towards the bench and then immediately
halts. He stares at Sweetah who is now in front of him.
Continuing to admiringly stare at her, he draws a lighter
and a packet of cigarettes out from his jacket pocket. Takes
one cigarette out of the packet and holds it to his mouth,
whilst replacing the packet back into his pocket. He then
lights the cigarette and draws in his first puff. Smoothly,
he blows the smoke out and offers the cigarette to Sweetah.
She looks intensively at the cigarette and then hesitantly
back to Brandon.
I don’t smoke, thanks.
Try it, you may even enjoy it.
Gingerly Sweetah holds out her hand to receive the
cigarette. She takes it to her mouth and tries to draw it
in, but the smoke is choking and she coughs with
embarrassment and offers the cigarette back. She observes
Brandon’s slight grin as he retrieves it back. With his
other hand he gently touches her arm, in an attempt to

My song, what do you think?
Yeah, OK, needs some work though.
You free now?
Yes, but we can’t go back to mine,
my dad wouldn’t understand.
Brandon eyes Sweetah up and down and gestures her to follow
him, as he stumps out the cigarette with his foot.
I know somewhere, come.
Star stuck and spell bound she accompanies him.
EXT. DESERTED ALLEYWAY - DAY
Walking down some stairs leading to a deserted alleyway,
Brandon stops and discreetly removes a small, unidentified
package out from his jacket pocket. He takes one of the
pills out of the package and offers the other to Sweetah.
Astonished and unprepared, Sweetah takes a huge breath of
fresh air. She steps back and shakes her head, whilst
looking deep into Brandon’s widening eyes as he alluringly
licks his lips. Sweetah becomes confused and bewildered at
the very suggestion.
Brandon re-offers the pill to her with an intimidating and
hard stare, almost suggesting it is not an option to refuse.
She slowly and hesitantly obliges and swallows it whole in
an attempt to get rid of it immediately.
EXT. CAR YARD GATES = DAY
The couple happily walk along a rough alley road, until
Brandon halts at a large purple gate. He becomes furious and
violently rattles the door.
Hey, what’s the problem?
It’s locked, it’s never locked.
Who’s lockup is it?
Just a mates.
Feeling his anguish Sweetah removes a hairpin from her hair
and twiddles it into the padlock.
A delighted and amazed Sweetah looks directly at Brandan as
the padlock comes away in her hand.
Brandon opens the door to the yard and silently beckons
Sweetah to follow him.
Frightfully hesitant Sweetah delicately places her hand in
Brandon’s and allows him to lead her into the yard.
INT. CAR YARD - DAY
Brandon leads Sweetah through a maze of classic cars. She
observes with caution as he eagerly attempts to open varies
cars. She begins to feel content that this venture will be

jumps into the car, urging her to join him. For a brief
moment, she hesitates, but complies with his request.

sink back into the seat sharing a loving kiss.
Preoccupied the female does not notice or hear the MALE
OWNER of the yard turn up.

his padlock on the floor and the door to his yard open.
Hastily he enters his yard.
INT. CAR YARD - DAY
The owner scans his yard, looking for signs of disturbance.
He sighs with relief and then rushes to his CCTV Station.
Curiously, and observantly he scans the CCTV status,
noticing that nothing has been disturbed. He then begins to
make a cup of tea in the kitchen area.
Brandan becomes more sexually persistent towards Sweetah.
She becomes stressed and pushes him off of her and emerges
to a sitting position.
Have you got a...
No, do I need one?
Sweetah observes as Brandon becomes anxious and
inconsiderate, as he starts to pull her towards him.
Well yeah. otherwise I want to go
An extremely annoyed, but silent Brandon unwraps his arms
from around her and quietly exits the car.
Alright I’ll be right back.
He rushes out of the yard. Neither, the owner of the yard or
the young male notice one another.
Sweetah, restfully sinks back into the seat to await the

conversation. He then proceeds to exit the yard.

There is complete silence all around.
