One Month

(It’s a rainy night as GABE drives his red jeep to LINDSAY’S house to pick her up for a date celebrating their “1 Month Anniversary”)

INT CAR

Gabe: “Hey “Kidd” I’m on my way to pick you up, see you in a minute.”

INT LINDSAY’S HOUSE

Lindsay: “Ok, see you then.”

INT CAR

Gabe: “You ready?”

INT LINDSAY’S HOUSE

Lindsay: “Putting on my make up.”

INT CAR

Gabe: “Ok, see you in a minute.”

INT LINDSAY’S HOUSE

Lindsay: “Bye.”

EXT LINDSAY’S HOUSE

(Gabe pulls up to Lindsay’s house and walks to the door)

INT LINDSAY’S HOUSE

(Doorbell rings)

(Lindsay opens the door and Gabe is standing their with a single red rose)

Lindsay: “Hey honey.”

(Gabe leans in for a kiss)

Gabe: “Happy one month.”

Lindsay: “You too.”

(Turning around and shutting the door behind her)

Lindsay: “Bye Mom, love you.”

DARCY: “Love you too, have fun!”

(The two walk to the car and Gabe opens the door to help Lindsay in. He shuts the door, walks around the car and gets in the driver seat)

INT CAR

(“Save Tonight” by Eagle Eye Cherry plays on the radio)

Gabe: “You hungry?”

Lindsay: “Of course.”

Gabe: “Ok, I forgot something at home, so we have to stop there first, then we can go. Sorry.”

Lindsay: “What did you forget?”

Gabe: “My money.”

EXT GABE’S HOUSE

(Gabe pulls into the driveway)

Gabe: “Come in with me.”

Lindsay: “Why?”

Gabe: “Just come in, it will be a minute.”

(Lindsay reluctantly gets out of the car)

INT GABE’S HOUSE

Gabe: “Come up stairs with me.”

Lindsay: “What is going on?”

Gabe: “Nothing, just come on.”

(Lindsay becomes more weary, she and Gabe climb the stairs to his room)

(Gabe opens the door)

(Lindsay sees a dark room lit by a single candle that is burning between two plates on a blanket laid out in the middle of the room)

Lindsay: “What is this?”

Gabe: “Happy 1 month.”

(Lindsay just has a confused look on her face)

Gabe: “This is our picnic. Its raining so we had to do it inside.”

Lindsay: “Are we not going out to dinner?”

(Gabe laughs)

Gabe: “This is dinner. I made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with mac and cheese.”

Lindsay: “Who did this?”

Gabe: “Me with a little help. Sit down, it’s ok.”

(The two sit on the blanket in the middle of the room)

Lindsay: “I am so confused.”

(Gabe laughs)

Gabe: “I wanted to make it special and just the two of us.”

Lindsay: “Are we still going to the movie?”

Gabe: “Yes, we are just eating here.”

(Lindsay still trying to figure things out is quiet and a little nervous)

Gabe: “I hope this is ok.”

Lindsay: “Its great.”

(The two sit in the candle lit room laughing and talking. Lindsay becomes less nervous as the time goes by. After a dinner spent as two, they finally made it to the movie)

This was the first of 155 “1 months” Gabe and Lindsay would enjoy together. They continued on their date and neither one of them ever forgot that night.

Lindsay, I miss you, I love you, and I will never forget our special love. You gave me so many amazing memories and make looking back on my life enjoyable.

Hugs

Gabe
