This short play is about Ned going over to his friend, Ryan's place to tell him that he proposed to his lover, but things get awkward shortly after Ned proposes Ryan to do a reenactment of his proposal.



(RYAN is sitting down. NED knocks on the
door. RYAN gets up and opens it. NED has
a ridiculously large smile on his face.)


NED
Hey Ryan!

RYAN
Hey Ned.


(NED sticks his hand out for a hi-five, still

NED

RYAN looks very nervous.)


RYAN
Thanks. They're just shoes.

NED
I know, but chic. I like chic.

RYAN
Want a drink?

NED
No, but thank you for offering.

RYAN

(RYAN walks away, but NED follows.)


RYAN

NED
What do you mean?

RYAN
I'm just getting a soda.

NED

(RYAN stops.)
