INT. ENGLISH LIBRARY- AFTERNOON

Wanur
(Read Oscar Wilde`s works. Put it on the table. Stand and go to circulation counter. There is the Shakespeare`s picture near it. Take off Moenjoel Menu from wall and place it on the table)
What shall we order?

Irfan
(Read a book. Look at right)
Omelet is a good idea I think.
(Counting)
Let’s offer five, my treat.

Rizky
Wow, really, it is not like you, actually.

Irfan
Come on, this is a good day actually (showing Good Day coffee) and maybe the last day we see kang Wanur again.

Wanur
Screw you too. I’m leaving for good.
(Turn around and place the menu back to its previous position)

Dika
Let us wish him good luck. You know how hard it is to get a job.

Rizky
It is a good idea. What you really wanna wish Wanur?

Wanur
(Pick up a glass of coffee)
What I want? The world and everything in it.

Irfan
Probably, you will not because we will have a different world later.

Dika
Exactly, lets enjoy our last moment together

Showing the screen of smartphone

Wanur
Okay. So we will order five omelettes.
(Text the order on the phone)
Please deliver them to the English library. Don`t forget the spoons. Thank you.

Irfan
Sadly, it is the last time you order Moenjoel.

Rizky
Yes, moenjoel is our savior.

Dika
Only Moenjoel can deliver our food in the middle of the night.

Rizky
Yes, Moenjoel is the only one.

Irfan
Fortunately, we will not lose Moenjoel at this time like Kang Wanur.

(Pointing Irfan)
You, Pay the guy and grab the stuffs

Irfan
Wait, mang!
(exit the library)
How much it costs, mang?

Mang Moenjoel
Fifty thousand rupiah

Irfan
(Give fifty thousand Rupiah to him)
Okay, thank you.

Mang Moenjoel
You`re welcome.
(Leave)

INT. ENGLISH LIBRARY- NIGHT

Yesterday

Two librarians are playing cards while reading books.

Wanur
You know dude, the chief of RC should have been me. That’s who.

Irfan
Why?

Wanur
I am the most suitable for the job and one of the senior librarians here anyway.

Irfan
Yeah, I think it makes sense.

Wanur
I know it does. Well, differences and importance did occur.

Irfan
So this is why you are not selected as the head of librarians?

Wanur
Yes, probably. However, I think Dika did cheat.

Irfan
What do you mean?

Wanur
70% of librarians vote him? Explain that.

Irfan
I think he has some charm

Wanur
He might posses it, but still… How could experiences be defeated by charm? The world becomes crazier than usual. One day, I’ll say the revenge is mine.

Irfan
I think I can solve that problem, by the way, checkmate!

EXT. ENGLISH LIBRARY- AFTERNOON

Irfan walks to right and stops at a table in front of him. It is very quiet today.

Irfan
(Opening one of the omelettes)
It will give him a stomachache.
(Fill one of the omelettes with poison)
Filling it more will not kill him anyway.
(Wrap the omelette back and go back to the library).

Irfan
The food is here

People
Horay!

(Rizky and Dika are playing games)

Rizky
How odd, Moenjoel come so early.

Dika
How odd indeed.

Irfan
(Walk towards the table)
Come on guys, the food is already here.

Wanur
(Close in Irfan and shout to Dika and Rizky)
To play or to devour. That is the question.

Dika
We`ve almost done. Speed the thing up!

Rizky:
Okay, okay, man, I`m doing my best.

Lia
Oh my God, really? Why didn`t tell us? I really want to order some too.

Adit

Wanur
Well done, just order some! Moenjoel has the sonic and the flash.

Lia
Oh, really?
