Storyboard Text

  • She shakes her head and starts to turn away. Oh, no! We’ve come this far over the bridge. She can blow it up if she wants to. But not without telling me everything. I grab her, turn her to face me.
  • She looks at me, square in the eye. Taking aim. And then she pulls the trigger.
  • Why not? Tell me. You owe me this!
  • The wind, the noise, it all just goes quiet for a second, and I’m left with a dull ringing in my ear, like after a show, like after a heart monitor goes to flatline.
  • Because I hated you.
  • She says it quietly, and it almost gets lost in the wind and the traffic and I’m not sure I heard her. But then she repeats it louder this time
  • Hated me? Why?
  • And there it is. A hollow blown through my heart, confirming what some part of me has always known. She knows.
  • You made me stay... You made me stay!
  • That was my vow. And it’s been my secret. My burden. My shame. That I asked her to stay. That she lis-tened. Because after I promised her what I promised.
  • Flashback
  • If you stay, I’ll do whatever you want. I’ll quit the band, go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I’ll do that, too. Maybe coming back to your old life would just be too painful, maybe it’d be easier for you to erase us. And that would suck, but I’d do it. I can lose you like that if I don’t lose you today. I’ll let you go. If you stay.
