A huge man (20s) in a hoodie paces nervously outside of a house. The hood covers his face, hiding his identity.

Max Smith (20s) opens the front door. He's a rich, flashy bully who loves the spotlight. The huge man sticks a handgun in his face.

Max thinks the huge man wants money, but he doesn't. The huge man takes off his hood, revealing his identity: Jaxson Cook; a kind man who’s been bullied too much. He has a black eye and a busted lip that Max gave him at a party the night before.

Max apologizes for giving Jaxson the black eye and busted lip. Max also apologizes for bullying him since elementary school. Max begs Jaxson not to shoot him. Will Jaxson shoot him? Or will he let it go (stop being angry about what happened at the party and about what happened all those years)? End of Synopsis.
