LINDA


Of course it was an accident.


KYLE


No.


LINDA


Kyle --


 


Kyle's hands shake. He's been hanging on to this for a very long time.


 


KYLE


No. I was with these two guys and we were doing drugs. I had a fight with them and I realised, I didn't even know these clowns names!


He GIGGLES, hysterical.


Linda keeps her back to him, but she's listening.



KYLE


I thought: I'm probably gonna die one day surrounded by these cunts whose names I don't know, because I'd driven all my real friends and -- and all the people I loved...and I remembered what you said to me.


LINDA


Don't...


KYLE


It's okay, L. It's okay because you know what? I made me sick too. So I took all these pills -- I think they were Percocet -- 'cause I'd already done so much coke I figured that would work.


(beat)


And none of this shit would matter anymore.



Linda finally turns around.


Kyle is tired and seems much younger than his years. A teenager who never really grew up
