One More Present: A Short Play

Dramatis Personae
Our Hero (A cute (but modest) man recovering from a staggeringly good Christmas day)
Kid Flash (Handsome, tall, runner type, boyfriend to our Hero)

The Scene
After a holiday party, in a dark apartment with the Christmas tree in the background, and a few wrapping paper scraps still scattered about.

Act 1, Scene 1
Kid Flash: There's one more present to unwrap.
Our Hero: Really? How is that possible?

Kid Flash retrieves a small Altoids tin wrapped in pink ribbon from a nearby bookshelf and hands it to Our Hero.

OH: What's this?

KF smiles slightly mysteriously as OH unwraps to discover two shiny new keys to KF's apartment.

KF: I'm not sure what it means, or if it means anything, or if it even needs to mean anything, but I thought it was time.
OH: Thank you. All it has to mean is that you're tired of waiting by the buzzer to let me in.
KF: Well... let's say it means more than that.

They kiss as the lights fade.
