Jordan: How’s the new girl working out?

Brandon: Thanks. You should come by sometime. Got a lot of good looking women working there.

Jordan: Any of them single?

Brandon: Only the ones I’m not dating.

Jordan (and Brandon)

 

Jordan sits at the window. Brandon takes the seat beside him.

Brandon: Hey, man, haven’t seen you around. What you been up to?

Jordan: Oh, this and that.

Brandon: Yeah? How’d Valentine’s go with Marissa?

Jordan: It didn’t.

Brandon: It … what?

Jordan: It didn’t. I changed my mind.

Brandon: So, what did Marissa do?

Jordan: (shakes head) It’s over. She called me a pussy.

Brandon: That’s tough, bro.

Jordan: Yeah, whatever.

Brandon: Hey, you wanna go for a beer?

Jordan: May as well. Nothin’ better to do.

Brandon: ‘At’s my bro.

Brandon: So tomorrow’s the big day?

Jordan: Yeah. What are you planning to do for Valentine’s?

Brandon: I’m going to have a seizure.

Jordan: (stares) A … what?

Brandon: A seizure. There’s this really hot nurse at the hospital.

Jordan: You’re mocking me for breaking my ankle to get Marissa’s attention, aren’t you.

Brandon: Who me? Nah.

Jordan: Ass.

Brandon: How goes it with Marissa?

Jordan: I’ve decided to get back together with her.

Brandon: Does that mean …?

Jordan: (nods) I’ve got it all planned out for Valentine’s Day. Hotel room, flowers, chocolate, champagne; the whole nine yards.

Brandon: Scruples be damned?

Jordan: I just can’t live without her, ya know?

Brandon: You know, she’s not the only girl out there.

Jordan: She is for me.

Brandon: Do you know if she’s a virgin too?

Jordan: She’s not.

Brandon snorts.

Jordan: What?

Brandon: I’m afraid she’s just using you. What if she has her way with you and then just forgets about you?

Jordan: What if I punch you in the head?

Brandon: Hey man, I’m just looking out for your best interests.

Jordan: Yeah, well, she’d never do that. She loves me.

Brandon: Not enough to stay with you if you don’t have sex with her.

Jordan: You’re an asshole, you know that?

Brandon: (turns to the window, mumbling) Yeah, the asshole who’ll be here to pick up the pieces.

Brandon: Why you so down today?

Jordan: What do you think?

Brandon waits quietly.

Jordan: Marissa broke up with me.

Brandon: No way!

Jordan nods and bites his nails.

Brandon: Did she say why?

Jordan shakes his head slightly but says nothing.

Brandon: Is it the sex thing?

Jordan nods.

Brandon: She doesn’t deserve you, man.

Jordan: I dunno.

Brandon: No, seriously. Stick to your guns. If sex is all she wants, she’s not worth it.

Jordan: I broke my fuckin’ ankle for her.

Brandon: Exactly.

Brandon: Did Marissa accept your proposal?

Jordan: She wants to wait. See whether or not I get the scholarship. Obviously I didn’t tell her I already got it.

Brandon: Told ya.

Jordan: I don’t know what to fuckin’ do. On one hand I have this opportunity, and on the other …

Brandon: Wouldn’t she go with you?

Jordan: She wants to go to school up here.

Brandon: You could have a long distance relationship.

Jordan: That’s what I said. She still wants to wait.

Brandon: Sorry man.

Jordan: She also wants …

Brandon: What?

Jordan: To sleep together.

Brandon: Right on.

Jordan: But I said no.

Brandon: (stares) You said what? Are you crazy?

Jordan: No. I want to wait until we’re married.

Brandon: (after a moment of stunned silence) Might be a deal breaker man.

Jordan: Yeah, well. Too bad.

Brandon: (snorts) Good luck.

Brandon: What did you get Marissa for Christmas?

Jordan: (pulls a small box out of a bag) I got her a ring. Wanna see it?

Brandon: Sure.

Jordan opens the box.

Brandon: Holy shit, man, is that an engagement ring?

Jordan: Yep.

Brandon: It’s been what, two months since you started dating?

Jordan: Yep.

Brandon: And you’re that sure you want to, like, settle down and shit?

Jordan: Yep.

Brandon: Is she pregnant?

Jordan: (frowns) No. We haven’t even gone all the way.

Brandon: You’re nuts, man.

Jordan: Whadda you mean?

Brandon: Isn’t that like putting the cart before the horse? Buyin’ the goods before they’re tested or something like that?

Jordan: And what’s wrong with that?

Brandon: I dunno… (shakes head) I always said you were a bit loose in the head.

Jordan: (smiles) At least I might not have to break anything else.

Brandon: Fuck, yeah. I forgot who I was talking to for a minute.
