It Felt Like Love

Synopsis: Fourteen year old Lila envies the ease with which her best friend Chiara, on the cusp of her sixteenth birthday, deals with boys. Chiara has been sexually active, although she has only gone to third base with her current boyfriend, Patrick. With no experience whatsoever on the sexual front, Lila has no adult guidance with her mother having passed, and she and her father often being at odds with each other. Lila's primary exposure to sex or sexual foreplay is being the third wheel in Chiara and Patrick's outings. In her naivety, Lila believes that what she sees between Chiara and Patrick has the potential to last forever. Regardless of her total inexperience, Lila likes to portray herself as having at least gone to third base, she doing so by mimicking what she hears from Chiara and other sexually active teens. In her own mind, Lila wants to lose her virginity, despite, if she was honest with herself, being more closely emotionally mature to her twelve year old neighbor, Nate, than Chia

call me when you get home.

All right.

Like the second you walk

through the door. Okay.

Please exit through the rear door.

He's too cute.


He, uh, went down on me

for the first time last week.

He did?

Yeah. It was good, but he

definitely needs practice.

Yeah. I hate it

when they need practice.

If you're not gonna feed

the dog, neither am I.

We don't even have dog food.

You know where the money is.

You go to the store, you

buy things for yourself.

What's in there, coffee?

Anything good?

Should we euthanize her?

Let's do it. For fun.

Much easier than fighting.

Why are you still wearing

your bathing suit?

It's summer. It's hot.

Let's play a game.

I thought you wanted to watch TV.

I did, but now I'm bored.


Like truth or dare?

Like what?

It could be anything.

Come on.

Use your imagination.

It's just not the kind of game

you play with two people.

It's just more fun

with a group, you know?

How 'bout checkers?

Come on.

Come on.

Come on. Please.

Please. Please.

Come on. Come on.

I love how dark I get

during the summer.

Sometimes I get so dark people

actually think I'm black.

Shut up.

It's true.

Do you have any tampons?



I'm kind of irregular, so I

don't need them that much.

That's gonna be a big problem

once you start having sex.

Hey, Chiara!

Oh, hey, Sammy.

How's your summer been?

- It's going good. You?

- Fine.

Do you still work at hall of fame?

Yeah. You should stop by

sometime and say hi.

Okay. All right.

See ya.

No. He's just some guy I

know from my neighborhood.

You sure you never dated him?

No. He's a douche.

He'd f*** anything.

Who was that?

Just some girl I was hanging out with.


Just some girl.

What's her name?


Is she in your grade?

She's in sixth, going into seventh.

We made out.

You did?


It was all her idea.

I met a guy.

Cool. Where?

At the beach.

He went down on me.

All right.

It was good, but he needs practice.

So, what are you doing later?

Probably going out.

All right. So, I'll just

come over after dinner.

Wanna help?


What else do you have to do today?




You used to like to help.

Please exit through the rear door.

You can't get her or whatever.

I was, like, "all right. Watch me."

I walk over to introduce myself.

Bro, this girl is 35 years old.



How'd that go?

I didn't think I was gonna get it.

Talked to her about five minutes.

Next thing you know, boom, got

her number, and that was it.

Maybe that's cause there

was no more alcohol left.

I took a walk to mobil.

And, like, this guy is

standing at the window,

and he's taking mad long.

And I'm, like, "hurry the f*** up.

I'm trying to get my beer."

He's like,

"oh, shut up."

Did you hit him?

Yeah. This hand is killing me.


Yeah. I knocked him out.



How's it going?


Cool, uh, I was just in the

neighborhood. Shopping.

Where do you live?


And you were shopping around here?



How do I know you again?

The beach.

That's right.

You look different.


So, do you go to murrow with Chiara?


That's a nerdy school, right?

Like, it is and it isn't.


What school do you go to?
