The Life of Crystal White
Scene Twenty five
Nat: A few hours later Crystal makes her way to the beach bar to wait for Kelly. When she gets there she sits down on a bar stool as a waiter came over to her.
Crystal: Just a glass of water please.
(The waiter nods his head and walks away as Crystal looks behind her at the scenic around her)
Guy: You're my kind of girl!
(Crystal turns around to see a guy sitting next to her)
Guy: That's my kind of girl, who orders water!
(The waiter come back over and puts her drink down on the bar and walks away again)
Crystal: Is it now?
(Crystal looks down at her drink and takes a slip)
Guy: Don't mind me; I just thought that might work.
(Crystal puts her glass down and looks towards the guy who was now leaning on the bar right next to her)
Crystal: What might work?
Guy: My chat up line!
Crystal: That was a chat up line! I think you need to try a little harder than that.
(The guy smiles at Crystal)
Guy: Does that mean I have a chance with you?
(Crystal starts to go red)
Crystal: No, I meant…..
Guy: You look so cute when you go red like that. Hot and cute as an angel!
(Crystal smiles a little)
Crystal: No, you still need to try harder.
Guy: Than why are you smiling?
Crystal: It was just really sweet of you to say that.
Guy: You think I'm sweet, do you?
Crystal: Yes, but it still doesn't give you a chance with me.
(The guy leans back on his stool facing Crystal)
Guy: How about this then?
(The guy smiles even more at Crystal and she turns to face him)
Guy: You look so hot sitting there…..
(The guy looks Crystal up and down)
Guy: …. May I help cool you down?
(Crystal laughs a little)
Crystal: That sounded really cheesy!
(The guy leans forward on his stood towards Crystal)
Guy: Did you like it thought?
Crystal: I admit it was better, but it still doesn't work on me.
(The guy leans back on his stool again)
Guy: What does work on you?
Crystal: Chat up lines certainly doesn't!
Guy: What's a guy to do than, to get you to notice them?
Crystal: Just be yourself!
Guy: I am being myself!
Crystal: You don't need to use chat up lines, to be yourself.
Guy: I like chat up lines! Have you got a good chat up line then?
Crystal: I just chat normally!
(Rich leans over the bar again but still facing Crystal)
Guy: Let's chat normally then.
Crystal: Hi I'm Crystal, what's your name?
Guy: Crystal! That's a lovely name; it goes with your Crystal blue eyes!
Crystal: Do you ever give up?
Guy: I like chatting you up.
(Crystal leans on the bar beside him)
Crystal: So what do I call you? Mr Chat up line!
(Crystal smiles at him)
Guy: You can call me whatever you like honey.
(Crystal leans back on her stool again)
Crystal: What's your real name?
Guy: It's Rich!
Crystal: What's that short for?
Rich: It isn't short for anything. My name is Martin, but everyone calls me Rich.
Crystal: Why's that?
Rich: It's my middle name and I like being called Rich.
Crystal: Rich it is then!
(Crystal takes another slip of her drink)
Rich: I really like your voice Crystal.
(Crystal puts her glass back down)
Crystal: Stop with the chat up lines and let's have a normal conversation.
Rich: That was a compliment! You can't take compliments either. My, what a weird girl you are.
Crystal: Very funny, it just sounded like your chat up lines again.
Rich: We can go back to my chat up lines again, if you want?
(Rich grins at Crystal)
Crystal: Do you ever give up?
Rich: Not when there is a pretty girl like you sitting next to me.
Crystal: Let's just have a normal conversation.
(Rich leans back on his stool again)
Rich: What about?
Crystal: Why don't you tell me a little about yourself?
Rich: I'd rather hear more about you.
Crystal: What do you want to know?
Rich: Where do you come from?
(Rich laughs a little)
Rich: I kind of guessed that. You speak English!
Crystal: So do you!
Rich: Yes I'm from England too; I moved here about 12 years ago, but we're supposed to be talking about you.
Crystal: We can talk about you too.
Rich: I'm more interested to hear about you. Where in England do you come from?
Crystal: Have you ever heard ofNorthamptonshire?
Rich: Yes, I came from there too. My parents live in Northampton!
Crystal: What a small world!
Rich: Oh I forgot to mention….
(Rich leans forward on his stool)
Rich: …. I own a boat!
Crystal: What sort of boat?
Rich: Not a big boat, but it can go really fast.
Crystal: How fast?
Rich: I could make it to England in a couple of hours.
Crystal: Really, that is fast!
Rich: You must come and see one time; it's so romantic at night with just the moonlight and the stars.
Crystal: It sounds really nice.
Rich: You wouldn't believe how nice, until you see it for yourself.
Kelly: What sounds really nice?
(Crystal turns to see Kelly standing beside her)
Crystal: Rich says he owns a really fast boat.
(Kelly looks at Rich and stares at him)
Kelly: Did he also tell you, it's very romantic at night?
Crystal: Yes he did. Have you been on it?
Kelly: Many of times! Are you still feeding out the same old chat up lines?
Rich: They still seem to work, so why not.
(Crystal watched the conversation between Kelly and Rich)
Kelly: Does it look like they are still working?
(Rich looks at Crystal)
Rich: You like them, don't you Crystal?
(Crystal looks at Rich then turns back to face Kelly)
Crystal: Does he do this to every girl?
(Kelly looks at Crystal)
Kelly: Always! He fed me the same lines 5 months ago.
(Rich looks at Kelly)
Rich: They worked on you.
(Kelly looks back at Rich)
Kelly: Who said they worked on me?
(Rich stands up in front of Kelly)
Rich: We wouldn't where we are now if they didn't.
(Rich places his hand on Kelly's shoulder and stepped closer to her)
Kelly: Don't even think about it.
(Kelly places her hand on Rich's chest and pushed him back)
Rich: Why not?
Kelly: You have bad beer breathe!
Rich: That's never bothered you before.
Kelly: Well it does today!
(Kelly moved to sit on the stool that Rich had been sitting on)
Rich: You still can't deny that my chat up lines worked on you.
(Crystal reaches for her drink again)
Kelly: Even if they did, they certainly don't work now.
Rich: They do!
(Rich crosses his arms in front on him)
Kelly: I don't see Crystal about to jump you any minute.
(Crystal starts to choke on her drink)
Rich: How do you know?
(Rich starts patting Crystal's back)
Kelly: Are you alright Crystal?
Crystal: Yeah I'm fine.
Kelly: Is Rich making you all hot and bothered by his chat up lines?
(Crystal looks at Rich)
Crystal: No he isn't!
(Rich slowly removes his hand)
Rich: Well she isn't going to admit it with you sitting there.
(Crystal looks at Kelly)
Crystal: Are you two going out?
(Kelly smiles at Crystal)
Kelly: Yes, my boyfriend Rich!
Rich: My girlfriend Kelly!
(Kelly and Rich smile at each other)
