Chapter 9: that wallpaper keeps walkin' by.

written by ?

added on: 10 Nov 1999 - based on characters created by Winnie Holzman

Angela stops in her tracks. For some reason she is embarrassed, as if she doubts the security of his feelings. She lifts her hand to her forehead, as if she could hide, and walks diagonally across them, diverting her intended direction. But because she was already in motion, she is too close for Brian not to see that she is there. Angela kind of lifts her hand to wave, as she moves past Delia's back, kind of smiles and raises her eyes in a silent hello. She pretends to be using her locker.

Brian (doing his Brian stare)watches her, enrapt.

Delia: Brian? Hello? I said 'yes'.

Brian: (attention back)Yes? what? oh ... oh, right,
yeah.(silence) Actually, I was thinking of this great film, it's called 'The Bicycle Thief'. It's showing again at this little film-house near Pike Street.(rambles on about the film) VO: I like her, I really do. I mean me asking her, has like, absolutely nothing to do with Angela Chase. And the fact that I suggested 'Bicycle Thief', was like coincidence. I mean, I have no ulterior motive. just because *she's* nearby is not why I said it. God, who I am I kidding. God, I didn't even have the decency to destroy a different person. God. Even I hate me.

(drops his voice embarrassed at what he is doing) so,yeah, uh, maybe we can like, uh,um, invite Rickie and uh, Sharon. I mean, because, you know, we're all friends now, right? I, uh, (snatches a glance at Angela) I mean. Isn't it great we can all go out together now, that, uh, we're all, uh, friends.

Delia: (confused, and caught off guard)oh, okay. I guess so. I kind of thought, that you, you were, uh asking me out?

Brian: oh, yeah, I guess we can go, you know, just the two of us, you know, as *friends*. Now that you, uh, don't hate me. 'cause, you know, I was sorry then, and you know, I still am. I mean, I never did really apologise *properly*. I mean, I was pretty lame. I always thought we'd be good *friends*. I think I really ruined what could of been a good *friendship*. so in conclusion, yeah it could be really good, you know two *friends* seeing a movie.

Delia: *okay*, I got it! We're *friends* seeing a movie.

Brian: well, great. I'll see you this friday?(she nods)

Delia leaves for a class, and Brian is standing in the corridor, looking at Ms. Chase.
