Jordan striding purposefully down the hallway. " so much more. Than a letter can even say." Jordan slides a folded piece of paper through one of the slats in Angela's locker. Brian watches from around a corner, worried and excited at the same time.
Angela coming down the hall. "If you wanna hate me, go ahead. If you wanna burn this letter do it." Angela dials her combo and opens her locker; the letter tumbles out in slo-mo.
Angela's bedroom at dusk. "You can burn the whole world down." Pan down Angela's legs, propped up on the window jamb -- "You can tell me to go to hell. I'd go." -- to Angela as she reads the letter and sniffles. "If you wanted me to. And I'd send you a letter from there." Angela smiles, thrilled and moved, and presses her hand to her chest, then smoothes her hair. BVO finishes flatly, "Sincerely, Jordan Catalano."
The next day, on the bus, other kids file off; Angela, rereading the letter, snaps to and gets up, smiling happily. Brian jumps up to follow her. They greet each other warmly, and when he asks casually what she's reading, she asks him in turn, "Have you ever just, like, completely given up on someone, and then something happens and you go oh my God, there's so much more to this person than I ever dreamed." She stares off, lost in thought, then makes her way off the bus; typically, the kid behind Brian shoves him forward.
Outside, Brian prompts Angela to continue, and she tells him it's "the most incredible letter I've ever gotten," although I have to wonder how many letters a fifteen-year-old would have received over the course of her life in the first place, but I suppose that isn't the point. Anyway, Angela comments that Brian really must have worked hard; Brian gulps, but Angela only meant that he worked hard at tutoring Jordan, and she should thank Brian: "It's obviously made a real difference." She rubs Brian's arm gratefully. He smiles to himself, then asks clumsily if she had a favorite part in the letter. Heh. Angela tells him regretfully that "it's too personal" for her to share, and just then she sees Jordan getting out of his car, and she grins, "Oh my God," and tells Brian she has to go. Brian nods.
