One wonderful thing about having an audience for your blog is that you can receive great feedback about something you’ve posted. Remember that “A good boyfriend but a great buddy” post I put up last week? Well I got to thinking about it and decided that it wasn’t at all real, so I did a revision for that scene. Let’s see what you think of it this time around.
[Shane’s sitting on Kelsey’s bed and Kelsey is sitting on her computer chair, looking down at the floor nervously.]
Shane: So what’s up you wanted to talk to about something important I’m guessing?
Kelsey: Yes, um you see I- I don’t really where to begin.
Shane: Oh boy it’s one of those talks, so why do you want to break up with me?
Kelsey: Well it’s certainly not what you’re more than likely thinking I’m sure. You see I like girls.
Shane: So I picked a lesbian out of the bunch, great.
Kelsey: Oh no, no, no I’m not a lesbian.
Shane: Didn’t you just tell me that you like girls?
Kelsey: Yes, but I’m not a lesbian.
Shane: So your bi? Or you think your bi?
Kelsey: No I’m not a lesbian and I’m not bi.
[Kelsey takes a breath.]
Kelsey: I’m transgender.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOUR TRANS?!
[Shane’s eyes darted back and forth as he began to get angry.]
Shane: Are you kidding me right now is this some sort of joke?
Kelsey: Oh yeah Shane I just thought that I would invite you over and jokingly tell you that hey I’m Trans.
Shane: You must be fucking insane. WHO THE HELL WOULD WANT TO CHANGE THEIR SEX.
[Kelsey is looking angry, but trying not to yell at Shane.]
Kelsey: Shane, please try to understand how hard this is for me to tell this, this isn’t easy for me.
Shane: WELL THIS ISN’T EXACTLY EASY FOR ME EITHER. I DID JUST FIND OUT THAT MY GIRLFRIEND WANTS TO BE A MAN.
Kelsey: I had to tell you, I couldn’t keep lying to you.
[Shane looking as though he wanted to hit Kelsey.]
Shane: Just exactly how long have you felt this way?
Kelsey: For years.
Shane: How many? Before you met me or after?
[Kelsey explodes with anger.]
Kelsey: WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING?
Shane: BECAUSE IF THIS STARTED TO DEVELOP AFTER I STARTED DATING YOU THEN IT’S MY FAULT.
[Kelsey showing a little sympathy.]
Kelsey: Shane it wouldn’t be your fault if I did start to feel this way after I met you.
Shane: Actually yes it would.
Kelsey: why what makes you think so?
[Shane looking as though he was about to rant and rave.]
Shane: BECAUSE THEN THAT WOULD MEAN I PICKED A TRANSGENDER FREAK AND THAT, THAT I ALMOST HAD SEX WITH YOU. AHH!
[Kelsey gets up from her computer chair and gets up in Shane’s face.]
Kelsey: OKAY FIRST OF ALL YOU DIDN’T ALMOST HAVE SEX WITH ME AND SECOND I’M GLAD THAT I FOUND OUT WHO YOU REALLY ARE; BECAUSE I DON’T ASOCATE WITH DICKS LIKE YOU.
Shane: YEAH WELL AT LEAST I HAVE MY HEAD ON STRAIGHT YOUR SICK AND GAY. YOU PROBABLY WANTED TO FUCK ME. WELL FUCK YOU I DON’T PLAY FOR THAT TEAM.
Kelsey: WHAT?! I’M NOT GAY ASSHOLE.
Shane: YOU’RE STRAIGHT AS A GIRL SO THAT WOULD MEAN THAT ONCE YOU TURN INTO A GUY THAT WOULD MEAN THAT YOU LIKE GUYS.
Kelsey: That doesn’t mean that, I’m going to be gay.
Shane: Yeah sure it doesn’t.
[Kelsey ready to explode in a burst of anger.]
Kelsey: WELL I’VE GOT SOME GOOD NEWS FOR YOU I’M NOT INTO GUYS, I’M INTO GIRLS. YEAH THAT’S RIGHT THAT’S ANOTHER THING THAT I WAS GOING TO DISCUSS WITH YOU.
Shane: IT DOESN’T MATTER ANYWAY I WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU; IT’S OVER!
Kelsey: YEAH NO SHIT.
Shane: I’m out of here. Have a nice life FAG!
[Shane leaves without another word, and Kelsey slams her bedroom door shut. She collapses onto her bed and begins to cry.]
