Desiree goes over to Angel. They are both still laughing.
I guess I just talked myself out of that promotion.
I guess so.
Closer. Angel and Desiree both still laugh.
And all that about “I’ll buy you out.” That was great. That will shut him up.
I can’t wait!
They go to the counter, each standing on different side. Both are more serious.
It’s true. I do want my own salon. And I want you with me.
Angel looks away.
I don’t know. Antony and I are making all these plans….
Close up of their hands on the counter. Desiree puts her hands over Angel’s.
Just think about it, will you?
No promises now. Just think about it.
Wider shot. PAUL, the book store owner, enters. He is a good-spirited white man in his early 50s. He’s balding, but what little hair he has hangs ragged over his ears. Desiree walks away from the counter, past Paul, on her way outside.
¡Ai! Lo tomas. Necesito un cigarrillo.
