6. ALONG A TREE-LINED AVENUE
He rolls in the wheelchair like a madman around the area, up and down the street, between the trees, and along the sidewalk. He rides/drives into the opposite lane, which, at the time, is free of traffic, sets his watch and then starts feverishly propelling the wheelchair.
The previous scene is replayed.
As Thomas regains consciousness, and sees the beautiful Sandra, he canâ€™t believe his eyes. On the one hand, he is in pain, but on the other hand, he revels in the compassionate look from Sandra.
Are you all right?
She attempts to help him into the wheelchair, and he tries to make himself comfortable.
Yes, I think so.
Do you need to see a doctor?
The driver attempts to get out of the car, reconsiders and speeds away, fleeing the scene.
No, I think Iâ€™ll be alright.
Iâ€™m Thomas, and you are?
As she notices an abrasion on his arm, she decides to push him in the wheelchair.
How did the accident happen?
You know, drivers see us as an interference and an obstacle. They donâ€™t watch out for us.
7. IN SANDRAâ€™S APARTMENT
They are in an old, luxurious and bright apartment with high-ceilings. Thomas, in the wheelchair, looks around amazed at the apartment, while Sandra attends to his wound.
Pretty nice place. Do you have it all to yourself?
My father pays for it. He owns the casino in Kleinbach. He said I can stay here for as long as I like.
Not bad. So, what do you do when youâ€™re not shopping?
In three weeks, Iâ€™ll be finishing my studies in marketing, after which, Iâ€™ll be spending three months in Marseille to improve my French.
Thomas starts to flirt with her
Are you seeing anyone?
Somewhat surprised, Sandra turns toward him.
Iâ€™d be envious of him.
Sandra, somewhat confidentially.
Iâ€™m not seeing anyone. Itâ€™s been quite a while since Iâ€™ve had a decent boyfriend. I guess I got fed up with the â€śdating sceneâ€ť. You canâ€™t even have a normal conversation with a guy. In my opinion, they always want the same thing
Sandra, realizes that sheâ€™s talking with a guy.
Sorry, I didnâ€™t mean every guy...
Thomas looks around at his wheelchair.
Thereâ€™s no danger of that with me . . .
There is a knock at the door. Sandra enters the hallway to the front door to the apartment, which Thomas is in full view of.
