Wild Eyes


A young man in his late twenties desperately wants something that belongs to his best friend. He feels that if he had this one thing, his life would be better. Without it, his life is miserable.

David Collins a professional basketball player is not happy in his life. He and Roger has been best friends since high school. They did everything together from going out drinking too much, to double dating. Now David wants something that belongs to Roger, and he is planning a way to get it for himself. In high school, David had many girlfriends, and now it seems he cannot hold on to anyone.

Roger work as a mechanic, and he is a friendly, generous person; he would just about do anything for his family and friends. He has dark hair, striking sapphire eyes and a flirty smile. He is 6 feet 2 inches tall and has a slight limp when he walks. Almita, his long time girlfriend is very hard working and loyal; they plan to be married in the fall. She has long auburn hair with brown eyes. Her smile is inviting and she is average height and weight.

Because David makes so much money-playing ball, he thinks he could get anything and anyone he wants. He is secretly in love with Almita, he has been every since high school, now he wants to meet with her so he could tell her how he feels. However, Almita has refused meeting him and David explains he will not give up until she hears him out.

David got in touch with Almita again. Now she is pondering whether to let Roger know what David has said to her, she decided to meet with David once and for all so he will know that she loves Roger, and nothing can change that. She met David in the park.

“Hi David, how long have you been here in Albany?” asked Almita.

“Since yesterday, how are you?” David asks.

“We are good, why do you want to talk to me?” Almita asked curiously.

“I miss you and Roger but mostly you,” David said nervously.

“Look Almita, I am not going to beat around the bush, you know I have always loved you.

“Well David, you know I always loved Roger so this will be a waste of time, I want betray Roger, not under any circumstances.” Almita said.

David was so blown over by Almita’s respond he knew she was serious. Then they went their separate ways. He was hurt and he realize you just cannot show up in someone’s life expecting to get what you want because you want it. In addition, he betrayed his friend and did not give him a second thought. The only way David will be happy is to find his own way in life, not by stealing someone else’s girl.

Almita is feeling guilty that she did not tell Roger about this until after the fact. He was very upset with her and David. He stormed out of the house with the door slamming behind him. He has not returned in the last forty-eight hours.

  1. You should be a script writer,your mind is so wonderfully alive with so many gems, when I reach the end I want more, but all you share express what many go through in life…it would make a lot of people think! Though I have shared some poems I am not on the computer long, I tire quickly, but I am so happy you visited me…it reminded me of how much I love your writing! You made my day…have a beautiful weekend!


  2. I am so glad you liked it Wendell, but I have to admit, I was rushing that day and I wanted to make sure I posted something so next time I will give it a little more thought. Thank you very much! and have a great weekend.
