Scene 1


Isang limousine na mahaba kulay itim na super kintab…pumarada sa harap ng building..humarang ito sa entrance…maraming nag busina..dahil bawal pumarada dun

“oh tabi tabi”…background noise…”wow gara ng kotse” backgrounder..”wow vip”…”sino kaya yan..alika na nga late na tayo”…”teka” “putsa naman oh”

Lalapit ang gwardia sa kotse para buksan…tunog ng pinto na bumubukas…lalabas si Monica naka all black…naka damit na hanggang tuhod..high heels na may signature na tatak na Gucci ….

Bababa si Monica at titingin pataas sa building…

“Guard ditto lang to…wag alisin” sabi ni monica na may pagka taray.

“Pero mom bawal yan” sabi ng guard

“ ah ah ah..eto” at inabutan ni monica ng $100 at biglang tameme ang gwardya.

“Gud” English accent sa Good sabi ni monica.

Focus ang camera sa pag lakad nya papasok sa building..then cut.


Scene II


Naglalakad na si monica sa lobby ng building na puros marble floorings at huge paintings sa walls. Yung mga gwardya eh parang pipigilan sya pero walang magagawa at matatakot. Titignan lang ni monica na parang kakainin nya at hindi na kumibo ang mga gwardya. Sabay pindot sa up button at titigan ni monica ang iba na nag aabang sa elevator…tingin na “ poor creatures ang expression” or “get lost”

Background voices:

“inay sino yan”

“mukang may ballroom ata”

Monica: “excuse me deary..I heard that..at walang ballroom..meron lang busabos party at ikaw ata ang guess of honor…damned!”

“hoy sino yan”

“sosyal”
“baka may ari ng building”

“talbog ang Gretchen ha”

“shet ayoko sumabay dyan”

Unang sumakay si Monica sa elevator na maraming nag aabang sa umaga papasok ang mga trahabador. Sabay pindot ng close button ng elevator. Papasok sana ang iba at biglang sinenyasan nya lang na hindi pwede..

“ get the next one …Thank you”

Tulala ang mga tao at walang magawa.

“taray ng putah”

“siguro bakla yun”

“leche late nako”

“hayop ayaw pasabay…gretchen nga “

“pare sino yun…sabik siguro yun pre”


Scene III


Isang boardroom ng isang malaking company. Naghihintay lahat ng mga tao na naka upo…sila sila nag uusap sa kanilang mga katabi na halos lahat eh naka itim.

Si attorney Ysmael baromeda ang naka upo sa kabisera na naka coat and tie na formal. Katabi nya si Dona Nayda Santos asawa ni Don Jaime na naka luksa na umi iyak pa din na itinatago lang at pina panood ang lahat ng mga katabi.

“Quiet please ladies and gentlemen” sabi ni attorney

tatahimik ang lahat at titingin kay attorney.

“We are gathered here today for the last will and testament of our beloved Don Jaime Don Jaime Santos. As all of you know, he had just died yesterday. Indeed it is so sudden and we are all caught unaware of the situation. There are many things that has to be done..like transfer of titles, election in the board, etc. Marami po…Kung sana eh kailangan ko ang inyong cooperation sa lahat ng ito..

I am sending my deepest condolence to the family of Don Jaime who are here today and the board of directors and close friends.”

Richard: (anak ni Don Juan na lalake..only son..aggressive..and sitting in the board of directors of the corporation. He’s 25 years old..smart…matipuno at gwapo. Wala pang asawa at ma engage na next month kay Sofia…ang matagal nya ng girlfriend na anak mayaman din. Naka suot din ito ng coat and tie na Armani…naka gel ang buhok..very neat looking at naka salamin na nag babasa ng mga papeles>

“Attorney why don’t we start?” sabi ni Richard.

Attoney: sir, hinihintay lang natin si Miss Monica.

Richard: attorney, excuse me? What does she has to do with my father’s will and testament?

Attorney: she is a vital part of the will…It is stated here that she will present a video which she will carry for us to watch…and yes..she is the executor…

Richard: Gosh, am I hearing this right?

Attorney: Yes, I am afraid so Richard

Mag bubulungan ang lahat..at habang busy ang lahat sa tanong eh biglang bubukas ang pinto ng boardroom at lahat sila mapapa tingin.

Papasok si monica naka taas ang nuo at naka sunglasses pa din at sumbrero…very smart at elegant sya…ma aamoy mo ang pabango nya hanggang sa dulo ng boardroom….

Lahat sila ay ma shock pag tingin kay monica..

Monica : Attorney we can start. I have a very limited time…so if we can fast track the entire proceedings then, that will help.

Si Richard at ang lahat ay parang naka open lang ang bungaga sa pag taka, pagka shock at pagka inis lahat combined.

Attorney: Since andito na lahat..grace (secretary) okay na lahat ha?

Grace: yes attorney…okay napo

Attorney: Miss Monica..asan na yung video?

Kukunin ni monica sa bag nyang itim sa mamahalinng bag nya…at bigla nyang i-slide padulas sa mesa na salamin papunta kay attorney…ma shock nanaman lahat lalo na si attorney na halos hindi nasalo….

Attorney: ehemm…ah..grace..paki saksak at paandarin na yung projector…

Biglang tatayo si Monica at magsasalita.

“you all don’t know me , but I extremely know all of you. I am a close friend and con-fi-dan-te of Don Juan Don Jaime Santos…never heard of me…pwes..I’m Monica…just Monica…I’m here to implement the burial ceremony of Don Jaime…continue please attorney”

Mag slide ang screen ng projector..at lahat titingin sa harap ng boardroom kung san lalabas ang video.

Video show:

Lalabas ang muka ni don Juan naka Americana…sa office table nya ito ginawa sa America.

Don Juan: First of all, by this time, all of you watching here..this is my last will and testament…as witness by Monica..and with my attorney here besides me….


Han (pertaining to wife)…patawarin nyo ko at sa mga anak ko.

Don juan will try to compose himself up and talk to the video camera again.

Ok down to the business. Na kay attorney na ang last will and testament ko. Itong video na ito ang katibayan na ito ang mga gusto ko mangyari sa aking libing at huling mga kahilingan ko.

Again..sori sa sa aking mahal na asawa at mga anak.

First, I want you to know na nagging mabait akong ama at asawa sa inyo. Pero tao lang ako at meron akong mga bagay na hindi pina alam sa inyo.

Brief Pause….

Ang una ay…para sa mahal kong asawa…minahal kita..ngunit..meron pa akong minahal na iba..siguro mahirap paliwanag…but, these people made me as a whole in my being..…(yuyuko sya)….ayoko n asana ilabas ito pero hindi ko kaya na ang mga taong nag mahal at nag buo ng aking mga pagkatao ay hindi mapasama sa aking mga kayamanan.

…magkakagulo ang boardroom at mag uusap at bulongan ang lahat….

Background voices:

Jesus Christ…
Oh my god..
Sabi ko na nga…si sir nung..etc
Richard: Fuck! At iiyak si Richard…
Isabelle: kuya…trying to please kuya

Attorney: PAUSE…PAUSE THE VIDEO! Ladies and gentleme..please…calm yourself…this is the last will and testament of don Juan and it should be respected.

Richard: Respected my ass! Fuck..at ha ha gulgol ng iyak

Attorney: Richard are you okay?

Dona Dona Nayda: Anak are you okay?

Richard: okay attorney..(composing himself)

Attorney: okay let’s continue with the video…grace..go…

Back to video:

I know I had lived a double life, proably triple life, or multiple lives that I had never shown to my family…again …..(pause) I’m sorry….

Simula bata pako, ito na ang paraan ng gusto ko na babasahin ni attorney kapag ako ay namatay. Si Monica ay andyan sa inyo to implement my last will and testament…specially my creamtion part..and my burial party….

Hindi ko kaya kayong harapin kaya si monica nalang at attorney ang mag babasa ng aking last will and testament.
Si attorney…sa last will and testament..and Monica..for my burial and creamation proceedings.

Again…patawarin nyo ko dahil…ako ay tao din tulad nyo na may pangagailangan….end of video.


Nagkaka gulo pa din sa boardroom…daming nag uusap na nakaka bingi sa tenga…

Attorney: quiet please…quiet….let us respect the old man…right? (tatahimik)…okay monica…can I inspect the document? (lalapit si monica at ibibigay kay attorney…mag nod si attorney at bibigay uli ni attorney kay monica ang document..at babalik si monica sa upuan….

Monica: I’m don Juan Don Jaime Santos. I will make this short and simple. My body will be cremated as soon as possible after I die. My ashes will be bless by a catholic priest. After that, there will be a big party in my house and everybody who is a part of my life will be invited.
I want happy music and atmosphere…
Whispering:

“jesus”
“nyek”
“ha ano daw”

I want everyone to wear a costume. Invite clowns, dancers ..so everyone will be merry and happy…and at the end of the party…that is where my final last will and testament will be announce…
