Apple Night When he woke up, he realized that his wife has left. He was so sad because nothing with him in this empty room. He felt so terrible and he remembered that he drunk last night then he hit his wife. He felt very guilty because he can’t control himself when he drunk and hit his lover. He loves his wife so much. But now his wife has already left. Maybe he will keep lonely and have sexless for many years, maybe in one day. He didn’t know. He knew that men regards the love is a part of life, while women regard the love is a whole life. He knew he lied to his wife when he said he loves her. At that time, love is nothing to him. However, after some hours, he felt better and thought that this incident is nothing to him because he didn’t care about the love now. He thought that he should solve the problem of the lunch. And he must do the laundry. The room was so massy. He took a photo from the refrigerator. The smell of the kitchen was so bad. He wanted to dicing the photo on the balcony. He thought that the balcony is a good place. You can drink a lot and have many cigarettes here. You can have the fresh air here. You can also water the wizened flower here. At that time, there was a man in the next balcony and was smoking. He wears a blue shirt and a pair of glasses. He looked so haggard. The distance between the buildings was so closed so he can talk with this stranger. He asked him why he was cutting the photos in the balcony. He said that he was so boring .He was waiting for his wife coming back. The stranger noticed that the man was so stupid when he was cutting the photos. He told this neighbor that he used to drunk and lost the control. So he used to hit his wife after drunk. His wife can bear anymore so she left the home. After a short chart, the man turned back to the room and made the dishes. He wanted to make a bacon photos .But he was so stupid so the dishes are the shit. He didn’t want to work anymore because he should face the boring work and the strict boss. The customers haggled over every ounce so he hated everything about this job. He lost the enthusiastic about this work so he won’t go to the office. He played a CD about Debussy who is his favorite musician. Then he had a sweet sleep after the launch. In the evening, he went to the balcony again. This time he saw that strange neighbor again. He was still smoking. The stranger stretched himself and felt very relaxing. So the man fetched out a lighter and smoked with the stranger together. The stranger told him that he drunk so much last night, too. He didn’t want to go to work because the boss was so acrid and deducted the employees’ salary mostly by many kinds of reasons. The man was so happy because he met someone that similar with him. They watched the sky and a crow flied past the sky. The man turned back to his home and felt so tired. He threw himself by the bed and can’t help himself to sleep. When he woke up, it was 10 p.m. at night. He took two apples then went to


the balcony. To surprised, the stranger still smoked in the next balcony. The man felt so happy and gave an apple to the neighbor. They ate the apples together and talked nothing. The man missed his wife so much because he felt so lonely. When he ate a half of apple, he didn’t want to ear anymore so he put the misshapen apple on the balcony. He smiled to the stranger felt so hopeless. Next day, the morning newspaper reported that there was an idioctonia issue that a man jumped out from 14th floor in an uptown. The decedent wearied a blue shirt and a pair of glasses. From the police, the man had a heavy schizophrenic and smoked a lot. In this decedent’s balcony, the police found a half of apple and some cigarette ash. The strangest thing is that in the 15 floor’s balcony, there was also a half of apple. But the 15th floor’s room was discarded for a half of year. The reason for this case of suicide is still unclear. .

S

Actually, I am lonely for many years And I don’t have any girlfriend,

Even friend.

I had drunk last night, too.

I had a bottle of vodka.


The profit of my company is so bad

and the boss is so awful.

He always deducted our salary by

many reasons.

He was so strict to us. I can’t get any benefit from this job. I don’t want to go to the work anymore.

M

Who want to go to the work? I didn’t go to the office, either.

I hate them, especially my boss.

S

Wow, we are the fellow sufferers!

The man smiled to the stranger. Then he ashed the cigarette.

M


Look! The crows in the sky are more

freedom than us. So funny.

S

So desperate!

The man was accustomed to be distracted by unknown power forever. Animals are much more freedom. M

I am sadder than you.

I am waiting for my wife.

Wait. I am taking an apple to you.

The man turned back to his home and felt so tired. He threw himself by the bed and can’t help himself to sleep. When he woke up, it was 10 p.m. at night. He took two apples then went to the balcony. To surprised, the stranger still smoked in the next balcony.

4. INT. IN THE BALCONY------ AT NIGHT

M

Did you smoke here for a whole afternoon?

S


Yeah. I am so bored.

I have nothing to do without smoking.

M

Come on!

An apple

The man gave an apple to the stranger.

S

Thank you.

M I don’t know why my wife left me.

My home is empty without her. I even can’t make the bacon potato. Damn it. I shouldn’t hit her. It’s my fault.


The man only ate a half of the apple. Then he putted the apple on the balcony.

S

Nothing in the sky.

Even a little star.

The city is too crowded and dirty.

The man looked down and saw an old man walked on crutches away. The man felt so lonely. Like something impaled his heart. He can’t find any reason to live. He smiled to the neighbor sadly.

Next day, the morning newspaper reported that there was an idioctonia issue that a man jumped out from 14th floor in an uptown. The decedent wearied a blue shirt and a pair of glasses. From the police, the man had a heavy schizophrenic and smoked a lot. In this decedent’s balcony, the police found a half of apple and some cigarette ash. The strangest thing is that in the 15 floor’s balcony, there was also a half of apple. But the room of 15th floor was discarded for a half of year. The reason for this case of suicide is still unclear. .


Reflection

This story is about the man who has the schizophrenia. He always has the illusion and phonism. The man who saw in the next balcony is his illusion. The stranger is the mirror of himself. He talked to himself. He can’t help himself to be desperate. His wife did not cause his suicide. The thing that his wife left him is the wick of his suicide. His was tormented by the daily stress: the work is meaningless, the life is boring and everyone around him cannot understand him. His thought he can’t find any happiness in the life, so he used to drunk. When he drunk, he can find the happiness in the unclear world. Unlucky, his relatives cannot bear him anyone and left him. He told himself he didn’t care about the love, which is the lie to himself. Actually, he felt so desperate when he was alone. He found that he even couldn’t make bacon potato. So he had the illusion that someone in the next balcony that is similar with him. In his illusion, he was not alone and found someone who had a same destiny with him.

I wrote this story when I was in high school. At that time, I suffered something that I can’t control myself to be calm. At that time, I was very desperate to everything, to everyone around me. I think the relationship between everyone and me was tested. I wrote another me in the story and I hope I can find someone stay with me forever in this story. When I see this story again, I don’t think I am laughable at that time. To be contract, I know that I find some ways to save myself---- writing something, writing the stories.

Actually, writing a script is very difficult to me because this is the first time for me to write the script. Also, due to I am an international student, I am not accustomed to the dialogue


between American. Maybe the dialogue in my story is not very native. However, this is my own story, the reflection of my thought and life. I think writing stories is a never-ending process for me.
