Life is Long

A bliss in proof, a very woe. A 100W microplay closing the extended season.

An elderly man and woman in school uniforms, smoking outside.

MAN: Just one tit.
&&
WOMAN: I told you.
&&
&&
Not yet.
&&
MAN: Dunno why I bother.
&&
&&
You let Grimmo.
&&
&&
WOMAN: Have you done that report for Southall.
&&
MAN: No.
&&
WOMAN: Gonna get fucked up.
&&
MAN: Doubt it.
&&
Southall’s half my age.
&&
WOMAN: He’s got nice arms.
&&
MAN: He’s a baby.
&&
WOMAN: Like to see you say that to his face.
&&
MAN: You done yours?
&&
WOMAN: Maybe.
&& 
MAN: Fucking Hell. I’m gonna get so much shit.
&& 
WOMAN: Parents or..?
&&
MAN: Nah, they’re dead. Kids. Son’s just gone into Year 41.
&&
&&
WOMAN: Aw.
&&
&&
MAN: I can’t get held back another year.
 &&
&& 
WOMAN: (Unbuttoning) All right. But quick.
&&

MAN extinguishes his cigarette.
