It’s the smell of hard work.
The top comes off. The smell isn’t stopping her.
6 INT. HOLLY’S FLAT. BEDROOM - DAY 9 6 *
Post sex. Holly lying in her bed, satisfied smile. She grabsher phone and scrolls to her status, types...
FEELING HAPPY ;-)
NEIL enters, towel round him, out of the shower.
On your phone, that makes a change HOLLY
(puts it down, peels outof bed)
I’d better make you some lunch NEIL
Sandwich to go -
(off her look)
Gotta get back, we’re crazy busy As
she pulls on her clothes she asks -
Shall we do something tonight?
and see a film or...
Oh, I’m out with the footy lot - I
can come after...
I’ll text you...
7 INT/EXT. HOLLY’S FLAT - DAY 9 7 *
Neil, sandwich in hand (or gob) dashes out. Quick kiss.
See you back there He’s
away. She watches him go, with a smile. She doublesback inside and as she reaches the kitchen she sees...
Ordinary Lies 2 Ep 2 HOLLY 10.03.16 5.
HIS WORK JACKET.
Realising he’s left it, she quickly grabs it and rushes to
the door, but HIS CAR PULLS AWAY.
She tuts, but never mind, she’ll take it back in for him -
but then she sniffs it - Jesus.
8 INT. HOLLY’S FLAT. KITCHEN -DAY 9 8 *
Kitchen. Her healthy soup simmers in the pan. We find her at
the washing machine... she stuffs a few of her own things -
towels and whatever - and then is about to cram in his work
jacket, but she does what she always does and first checks
Left side, full of sweet wrappers, work dockets, crap. Sheputs them on the counter.
Right side, she pulls out TORN PIECES OF PAPER, like a coupleof A4 sheets that have been torn into hundreds of pieces.
She slams them on the work surface. Doesn’t give them anythought.
Jacket into the washing machine. LOADS of fabric conditioner.
Door slammed. Start.
She stirs her soup. In this moment, all is well in her world.
And then... she does a half turn as she reaches for a bowl
and notices... on one of the jagged pieces of torn up paper,
the word HOLLY.
She moves to the pieces and starts to sift them slightly andfinds other sections, some are benign, but others less so.
They are half words/phrases that need piecing together likean elaborate jigsaw puzzle. Some words/sentences are crossed
Her anxiety increases as she starts to sift with more
urgency. And as she pieces phrases together - ‘tooemotionally needy’, ‘lack spontaneity’, ‘not successful/work -
so average’, ‘stuck in routine’, ‘plays safe/boringsometimes???’ what becomes clear to her, with shocking
clarity, is that this is the draft of a break up note.
And then the sinker... she finds the underlined heading whichsimply reads, Me and Holly.
She stares at them in horror. The soup boils over.
