MAGGIE

Did you know that scientists believe that life on Earth began in the ocean, approximately 4 billion years ago.

BILL

And in fact, it was only about 500 million years ago that life emerged from the ocean onto the land.

Bill continues to smile with the biggest smile as Jared and Lynn stare with confused looks.

JARED

Bill about Maggie, are you sure she's your type?

BILL

I'm not sure what you mean?

JARED

Do you think you can handle someone like that?

BILL

Just because she's a model doesn't mean she couldn't possibly be in to me.

If your saying she's more your type, think again because she's not.

Bill walks away.

To the left of her television she has an aquarium filled with many colorful fish swimming around. He sits on Maggie's couch and picks up a paper with the score of an A.

MAGGIE

So what is it that you needed to stop by like this?

JARED

It's about Bill.

Maggie crosses her arms as she stares at Jared.

MAGGIE

What about Bill? Is he okay?

BILL

Well sort of... You know how Bill is my best friend. I take care of him all the time, that's my guy and I don't want to see him get hurt.

MAGGIE

Well you, you're not different. I've talked to guys like you before.

Jared goes to grab Maggie's hand. Maggie pulls away quickly and stands up.

BILL

To tell me again that a model could never be attracted to me? She likes me Jared.

Bill's phone begins to ring. Bill takes his phone out of his pocket and looks at it. The phone reads Maggie's name.

JARED

BILL

A model Maggie?

Maggie stares at Bill.

Bill takes a step away from Maggie.

MAGGIE

I wanted to tell you, I was going to tell you.

BILL

Yeah, sure you were. I don't have time for lies.


MAGGIE

You want to accuse me of being a liar? I bet Jared didn't tell you about last night?

BILL

Yea how he saw you with another guy last night.

Maggie turns to Jared and laughs.

MAGGIE

I'm guessing you left out that the guy you saw me with was yourself.


Bill looks at Jared speechless then looks back at Maggie then looks back at Jared as he shakes his head motioning that it's not true.


MAGGIE

Tell the truth Jared. Tell him how you came over and then made your move.

JARED

It didn't happen like that. Come on Bill believe me. Your my guy I wouldn't do that to you, I take care of you.

Bill looks at Jared in disbelief. Bill shakes his head.

BILL

Truth is both of you are liars.

Jared looks at Bill. He takes a step towards him.

JARED

Bill, please...

Bill takes a step towards the exit of the strip club then turns around.

BILL

But you were right about one thing. You two were made for each other.

Bill walks out the strip club leaving Jared and Maggie.

BILL

What are you doing here?


MAGGIE

I was hoping to find you here . Look Bill let me just apologize please.

Bill stares at Maggie.

Bill

So who really are you then?

MAGGIE

My name is Maggie and I think that studying marine organisms is fascinating.

Maggie puts her hand out to shake Bill's hand as if they're meeting for the first time.

MAGGIE

School is expensive okay. I need a good way to pay so that's why I took up stripping.

Bill shakes Maggie's hand back and smiles.

Maggie

This is the real me. I didn't mean to lie to you. I didn't want to at least.

BILL

I should have been more understanding. I shouldn't have walked out on a girl that I love.

Maggie stares then tilts her head in confusion.


BILL

I've never met a girl like you before Maggie. There is something special about you. I've never felt this way before.

Maggie walks up to Bill and kisses him.

MAGGIE

I've never felt this way about someone either.

She kisses him again.

MAGGIE

And for your friend Jared, you can do better than him.

BILL

Yea, I finally realized that. All I need is you.

The little girl comes back with a book and hands it to Maggie. Bill and Maggie sit down next to each other and read the book out loud to the little girl.
