Hot Pursuit — Page 2



*Mike remains standing with a determined look.*
Mike: I can take the bus.. the terminal isn’t too far away..
*Lily holds his scarf, looking concerned.*
Lily: Michael..

*Lily frowns.*
Lily: Is this really what you want to be doing? You said yourself that it feels like you’re living separate lives.. Now might be the time to move on..

Mike: Maybe I could really surprise her.. I never knew she’d be anywhere near here again!

*Mike turns back to look at Lily, smiling softly.*
Mike: I have to try! It’s been so long since we’ve been together in person, and there’s so much more we can talk about, you know?

Mike: It’s a test..
*Lily scrunches up her face.*

*The two stand in silhouette.*
Lily: Did you just forget everything we talked about?
Mike: What do you mean?
Lily: Oh.. Never mind. I just thought..

Lily: … It’s already noon.. You better be quick.
*Lily lets go of Mike’s scarf, looking disappointed.*

*Mike smiles earnestly.*
Mike: I can make the 12:30 bus! It’ll be fine! Please, watch over Blur, okay?

*Mike runs off, leaving Lily behind.*

*Lily furrows her brow and pouts.*
Lily (thinking): He’s so hung up on this promise he made as a child.. I hope she remembers her side of that promise.. for Michael’s sake.

*Mike runs out of the house.*

*The wind picks up as Mike runs down the sidewalk.*
Mike (thinking): Sandy.. I know this is what we’ve been waiting for.. We’ll finally be together again..

Mike (thinking): As it was meant to be..

*The wind unravels Mike’s scarf and takes it out of his reach.*

*Mike looks longingly towards his scarf.*

Mike: My scarf! It’s..

*Mike continues running down the sidewalk.*
Mike: There’s no time! I need to go!

Author commentary

Veronica: Isn’t it funny how Mike has gone back to his original stance in terms of Sandy? Hence why Lily asks if he’s got amnesia. This shows how much of an effect Sandy has on Mike.. the sight of her inspires hopeless yearning, forcing him blindly try his best to find her again.

I guess we’ll see if it pays off this time!
