    By

    Nilanda Sutoummalee

  • EXT. PARIS STREET VENDOR SHOPPING STRIP - DAY

    LUCY, early 20s, relatively quiet but sarcastic,

    pretty, strolls through the street, browsing each stand.

    The things that catch her eye are a sketchpad that has "one

    is not born a woman, one becomes one," a string of beads and

    sequins and a glass necklace.

    LUCY

    Wow, these are gorgeous.

    VENDOR 1

    For a gorgeous young lady.

    LUCY

    Youre too kind. Look at the

    markings on this necklace.

    VENDOR

    Its hand carved. I did it myself.

    LUCY

    No way! Wow, thats awesome. My

    friend back in New York will adore

    this! Is anything else handmade?

    VENDOR 2

    Sweetie, all of the stuff we sell

    is hand crafted. The journal you

    have in your hands, was dyed and

    bound by my daughter. Shell be

    very happy to know it sold.

    LUCY

    Thats incredible. There really are

    some amazing pieces here.

    VENDOR 2

    Thats because they have heart. I

    put a little bit of my soul into

    everything I make. Staying in Paris

    long?

    LUCY

    No, actually its my last day. I

    fly home tomorrow.

    VENDOR 1

    But the city is so beautiful. Stay

    longer. Theres more to France than

    Paris.

    (CONTINUED)

  • CONTINUED: 2.

    LUCY

    I would love to, but I have

    something waiting for me in

    America.

    VENDOR 1

    A boyfriend?

    LUCY

    No, a business.

    VENDOR 1

    If thats where your heart lies. Be

    safe, and come back to France very

    soon.

    EXT. AIRPORT TERMINAL - DAY

    LUCY stands on the sidewalk, flipping through a magazine,

    designer luggage by her side. Dressed to impress - big

    sunglasses, heels, a flowing sundress.

    LUCY

    That would look pretty, if only the

    pattern was on both sides... and

    that dress would be perfect, if it

    was a different color.

    LUCY rips out a page and puts it in her purse. On a stand

    close by, Lucy sees a magazine with her parents name on it.

    LUCY grabs the magazine and flips to the page about The

    Blakes Real Estate Company. It made the Top 10 List of most

    successful businesses in New York and Lucy is expected to

    take over.

    LUCY

    Of course. So excited.

    DRIVER arrives in a black luxury car.

    DRIVER

    Good morning and welcome back Miss

    Blake. Let me take your things.

    LUCY

    Its okay, I got it.

    LUCY puts her luggage in the trunk and opens the passenger

    door before DRIVER is able to do it for her.

  • 3.

    BLAKES HOUSE - SAME DAY

    The car enters a gated community and parks in front of an

    all-white mansion. Inside the house are tall ceilings,

    marble counters, big rooms, glass chandeliers - clearly the

    Blakes are filthy rich.

    INT. BLAKES DEN - SAME DAY

    IAN is in the den, playing a violent video game on a big

    screen TV.

    IAN

    Oh look, the princess of Blake Real

    Estate is home; too soon if you ask

    me.

    LUCY

    But no one did. Its so great

    seeing you too.

    INT. LUCYS ROOM - SAME DAY

    LUCY reads the note on her desk that reads: "So close to

    closing a deal on a beach house in Miami. We had to leave on

    short notice. Cant wait to see you. Soon youll be going to

    these meetings, and well be on vacation! Love Mom and Dad"

    LUCY opens the door to her closet, and drops her bags

    inside. Her closet is the size of a luxurious one bedroom

    apartment. From the ceiling to the floor are shelves of

    shoes, purses, dresses and jewelry. In the closets sitting

    area, LUCY lays down on the couch, and takes a deep breath.

    LUCY

    Home sweet home.

    A text message appears on Lucys phone from JASMINE: Welcome

    back babe! Partying at Manhattan Melt this weekend! Then the

    Blake Real Estate fashion show and gala! Just like old

    times!

    LUCY

    Just like old times. Just like

    always.

    LUCY calls CAMILLE, but gets her voice mail.

  • 4.

    INT. LUCYS CLOSET - THE NEXT DAY

    JASMINE ORTIA, early 20s, talkative and bubbly, sweet girl

    next door, almost annoying, browses the racks in LUCYs

    closet, pulling out possible dresses wrapped in plastic and

    throwing them onto the couch. LUCY sits on the ground, a big

    box of chocolates nearby.

    JASMINE

    Wow, this dress is amazing! Ive

    never seen you wear it.

    LUCY

    Yeah, I had it custom made a couple

    months ago, but I wasnt here, so I

    havent worn it yet. Im about to

    eat all the Belgian chocolates I

    got you.

    JASMINE

    Well its gorgeous. Lucy, you

    should wear it to the melt!

    LUCY

    Jas, why dont you wear it?

    LUCY gets up and goes to a jewelry display, picking up a

    necklace.

    LUCY

    Here. I made this necklace

    specifically for the dress. Try it

    on. Itll look amazing on you!

    At the triple mirror, on a platform reminiscent of a bridal

    stores dressing room, JASMINE looks at her reflection in

    awe.

    JASMINE

    Wow, I love it! Youre like McQueen

    in the making!

    LUCY

    McQueen? Ha, not even close! Just

    put your hair down in a waterfall

    of curls, or pull half of it back

    loosely and wear diamond stud

    earrings.

    JASMINE

    Youre more like Rachel Zoe. You

    have the vision. Wait, what are you

    gonna wear?

    (CONTINUED)

  • CONTINUED: 5.

    LUCY

    Rachel Zoe? If only! I dont know,

    Im not that worried. Im sure Ill

    find something. Have you seen

    Camille lately? I called her

    yesterday, but nothing.

    LUCY grabs the glass necklace from the jewelry display.

    LUCY

    I saw this necklace in Paris and

    thought shed love it.

    Sunlight shines through the window and the glass beads

    twinkle.

    JASMINE

    Yeah, she would. So many cuts!

    LUCY

    Yup, 500 total. I mean it doesnt

    sparkle like diamonds, but it was

    hand carved by a woman in France.

    Have you heard from Cam?

    JASMINE

    I mean, shes around but I dont

    think shes as happy to see you as

    Chase. Cams probably worried that

    youll bat your eyelashes and hell

    come crawling back to you.

    LUCY

    I doubt it. We broke up a year ago.

    It was mutual. I went to Europe for

    a year, theres no way a 6 month

    relationship would survive that.

    JASMINE

    Maybe, but he sure spent a lot of

    time missing you.

    ORTIA BEACH HOUSE, MANHATTAN BEACH - A FEW DAYS LATER, NIGHT

    Extravagant house on the shore of the beach, distant from

    other houses. Open yard with tables and chairs, huge bar,

    loud music, fire on the beach. Adults, both young and middle

    aged parents are in attendance. In the center of the yard is

    a huge ice sculpture - melting away in the summer heat.

    IAN is at the bar alone, observing everyone.

    (CONTINUED)

  • CONTINUED: 6.

    A circle of 5 FRIENDS, all a little tipsy, take a shot of

    tequila together. One FRIEND- CHASE FITZPATRICK, early 20s,

    toned and tanned body, the guy everyone wants to be friends

    with and parents love, takes a lime wedge out of his mouth.

    His girlfriend CAMILLE COOKE, early 20s, blond with an

    attitude, gives him a quick peck on the lips. She tries to

    put her arms around his waist but he resists.

    CHASE

    Oh man, love me some Mexican water.

    LUCY walks by and Chase grabs her arm.

    CHASE

    Come on Lucy, take one with us!

    Lucy sees her parents nearby in conversation with 3 other

    ADULTS. She pulls away from CHASE.

    LUCY

    You guys take one, and Ill catch

    up later.

    LUCY walks by CAMILLEs MOM - KENDRA COOKE, a tall, blond

    woman in her late 50s, all business demeanor in mid

    conversation with 2 PARENTS.

    KENDRA

    ... exactly. So the magazines

    second headquarters will be right

    here in the city. Smaller, but Ill

    have more control. Im even doing

    some of the job interviews! I moved

    a couple writers here, but Im

    still looking for another

    photographer and another stylist!

    LUCY catches KENDRAs eye. She waves and smiles brightly.

    KENDRA returns the gesture with a half smile and a half

    wave, as she sips from her glass of wine.

    LUCY

    Stylist. Like Rachel Zoe. Me?

    ORTIA BEACH HOUSE - BY THE BAR

    LUCY catches up to HER PARENTS - MEREDITH and JONATHAN BLAKE

    a couple yards away from the bar where IAN is seated. The

    BLAKES are in conversation with 2 other PARENTS.

    (CONTINUED)

  • CONTINUED: 7.

    LUCY

    Mom, Dad, when did you guys get

    home? I didnt think youd be here.

    JONATHAN

    Just about an hour ago. We were

    gonna go right home, but your

    mother loves the Melt.

    MEREDITH

    Its tradition, and I know how much

    you love tradition! And the Ortias

    always have the best champagne and

    horderves! Who can say no to that?

    JONATHAN

    Lucy, I was just telling the

    Scotts that youre ready to start

    training for the real estate

    company.

    PARENT #1 - MR. SCOTT

    It truly is amazing, darling.

    Youre definitely going to have a

    lot on your plate!

    PARENT #2 - MRS. SCOTT

    Maybe you can cut us a deal after

    we retire and need somewhere

    smaller to stay!

    MEREDITH

    She wont if we teach her right!

    Shes very very excited to be a

    part of the family business. Its a

    dream come true for her.

    MRS. SCOTT
