INT. APARTMENT LOBBY - NIGHT
Lester sleepily walks towards the elevator. As he reaches out to hit the elevator, he catches Alyssa in the corner of his eye. He turns away from her and sighs angrily. They wait for the elevator.
I didn’t think I’d see you coming in this late.
What, you were waiting for me?
Honestly.. I was...
(Turns to her annoyed)
What are you doing? You went off with another man two weeks after you dumped me. You've been nothing but selfish the entire time that I've known you. I gave you all of me and you just dropped me for a dude who was never gonna love you like I would’ve loved you. So what happened? You get cheated on again, or something, or he ran out of money? Or is it that you saw me out here finally doing what I always knew I would do and now you want to be a part of my life now that I might get money?
I don't want to talk to you. I don't why you keep stalking me like that's gonna change my mind. Just stop. You had your chance. Live with your decisions. I'm not some guy you can pick up when you're bored or lonely until the next rich guy comes for you. I don't do stupid crap like that. Leave me alone.
Lester walks away from her and halfheartedly checks his phone. Alyssa breathes slowly, holding tears. The elevator arrives to the lobby. Two get out; they get in. Lester is uncomfortable, angry, confused, and slightly ashamed for how he treated her.
I’m sorry for what I did to you...
They glance at each other. They push their buttons and head up the elevator.
INT. HALLWAY - NIGHT
Lester gets off on his floor. He stops (as if having an epiphany), turns around, and catches the door before it closes. He sees Alyssa preparing to cry, but she stops when she sees him.
Do you really love me?
Yes. I love you. I love you so much...
Well... I can’t say that right now. In fact, I still loathe the very sight of you.
I know. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. It was the worst decision I ever made. Lester-.
Don’t wait for me. Just... just don’t.
He shakes his head and walks off. Alyssa lets the door close as she begins to cry.
