When a Woman Cries…

M: (Situation: Phone rings. Waking up, in a sleepy voice) Um…hello?

W: Hey, are you still sleeping? Unbelievable! You've changed nothing.

(She hangs up the phone.)

M: Hey, wait! …Please!... Oh dear, she's mad at me again.

Scene: At the cafeteria

W: (Speaking to herself) (Sigh…) He's so careless! And he's always late for dates. He always drinks too much. He's.... But he's... always kind to me. He's always kind to everyone! He always tries to make me smile. And... he always… loves me. That's why... That's why… I love... (Jack arrives breathlessly)

M: Hey, Sarah, I must apologize to you! I just remembered it was your precious 20th birthday yesterday! I'm so sorry, I wish I could take it back.

W: Hmm… you're always saying you're sorry, Jack. I don't want to hear that anymore! What I really want to hear is... (crying a bit)

M: Oh, don't cry…

W: You need to think about our future, Jack.

M: I do!

W: No, you don't! Then why don't you say anything to me?

M: Here! I just happen to have… this! Go ahead. Open it.

(He gives her a small box with a ring in it.)

W: Oh… a ring?

M: I'm sorry to have kept you waiting so long. I'm afraid I can't be a reliable person for you, but I promise I'm always on your side. The man who loves you the most in the world is…me! Sarah… Sarah… would you marry me?

W: (Surprisingly)……Yes!

M: Do you forgive me?

W: Yeah. Nobody's perfect.

M: Sarah!!

W: But don't drink too much, OK?
