SCENE: Atkins-Grimshaw house, Lindsay, day.

Angie is sitting on the grass in the backyard. Tim comes out of the house and sits beside her.

Tim: "Hey."

Angie: "Hey."

A very long pause ensues.

Tim: "I'm sorry."

Angie: "S'okay."

Tim: "It isn't. I shouldn't have said it."

Angie shrugs.

Angie: "At least now I know how you really feel."

Tim: "I don't really feel that way. I only said it because I was angry."

Angie: "You wouldn't have said it if you didn't think it was true."

Tim: "No."

Tim sighs and slumps forward slightly.

Tim: "I said it because I wanted to hurt you."

Angie: "You did."

Angie looks over at him, then, finally. Their eyes meet.

Tim: "I am sorry."

Angie: "I know."

Angie looks away again. After a while, she laughs quietly.

Angie: "Timmy."

Tim: "Yeah."

Tim looks away from her.

Tim: "I'm sorry I wasn't there. When Junko died."

Angie: "You're sorry for a lot of things."

Tim: "Not without reason."

Angie: "No, I guess not."

Angie looks back at him, her expression sad.

Angie: "Why'd you leave?"

Tim: "Chickened out, I guess."

Angie: "Why didn't you just say that?"

Tim: "Because it's a stupid reason."

Tim picks nervously at the grass.

Tim: "Why'd you come here?"

Angie: "I wanted to see you. Maybe bring you back."

Angie smiles.

Angie: "Won't catch me doing that again."

Tim laughs.

Angie: "Where's Colin?"

Tim: "With Anna."

Angie: "She's nice."

Tim: "She is, yeah."

Angie looks away again.

Tim: "Do you have anywhere to stay?"

Angie: "Colin's sister's place."

Tim: "Do you want to stay here?"

Angie: "No."

They sit in silence for a long time.

Angie: "Are you coming back?"

Tim: "I don't know."
