INT. HOSPITAL WAITING ROOM

AARON sits in his chair, drawing in a sketchbook. There's a quick glimpse of the sketch, and all that shows is what looks like a boy standing in the middle of a room, a dark shadow looming behind him. He suddenly winces, feeling a pain in his head. He begins to rubs his temples right as BEN appears with a can of soda. AARON slyly closes his sketchbook, trying not to draw BEN'S attention to it. BEN doesn't notice and hands him the drink.

BEN

You okay?

AARON (lies)

Yeah. Yeah, I'm good.

He takes the soda from BEN.

BEN

Hear anything?

AARON opens the lid and takes a swig.

AARON

Nothing so far.

AARON pulls his phone out, checking his messages. The screen shows a sent message to someone , reading "Meet me at the hospital". There's no reply. BEN looks over.

BEN

Waiting for that girl to text you back?

AARON (confused)

What girl?

BEN

Uh, the one you were gawking over in the hallway. The new one.

AARON

Who? Natalie?

BEN

Yeah, you waiting for her to text you back ?

AARON (slightly embarrassed)

I uh...I didn't get her number.

BEN

Really? How long were you talking to her?

AARON

Look, we can't all be like you, Ben. Not everyone gets it as easily as you do, especially with women.

BEN

It's not that hard—

AARON

For you, maybe. Other guys aren't as confident, or as rich, or as handsome. You can literally get any girl you want.

BEN (jokingly)
You think I'm handsome?

AARON shakes his head trying to hold back a smile.

AARON (chuckling)
Fuck you. You know what I mean...
