Embark on a journey of self-discovery, love and adventure with Y Tu Mamá También.
The sand was warm and soft beneath their bare feet as they stood at the edge of the endless blue ocean. The sun was setting, casting a warm orange glow over the horizon, and the sound of the waves crashing against the shore was mesmerizing. Julio and Tenoch had always loved the ocean, finding solace in its vastness and tranquility. Today was no different, as they stood on the beach, exchanging friendly banter and teasing each other as they admired the view. But their peaceful moment was soon interrupted when they saw a woman walking towards them, her stunning beauty leaving them awestruck.
Chapter 1 – The Invitation:
The wedding was a typical Mexican affair, with family members dancing, drinking, and enjoying each other’s company. Julio and Tenoch were happy to be there, enjoying the festivities and the food. They were both seventeen and inseparable, with a shared love for soccer, music, and exploring the world around them. As the party continued, Tenoch’s cousin, Jano, introduced them to his beautiful cousin from Spain, Luisa. She was twenty-eight, elegant, and confident, her magnetic aura capturing their attention immediately.
Luisa was different from any woman they had ever met, and they couldn’t help but be enchanted by her. Her laughter was contagious, her wit quick, and her eyes sparkled with intelligence as she shared stories of her travels and adventures. Julio and Tenoch were smitten, and they could tell that she enjoyed their company as well.
As the night wore on, the party began to die down, and Luisa made her goodbyes. But before she left, she turned to the boys and said, “I’m staying in Mexico for a few more weeks, and I’ve heard about this beautiful beach that’s waiting to be discovered. Would you two care to join me on a road trip to find it?”
Julio and Tenoch were stunned. They had never been on a road trip before, let alone with a woman as beautiful and sophisticated as Luisa. But they couldn’t resist the temptation, and without a second thought, they said yes.
The following morning, they met up with Luisa, and they set off on their adventure, eager to explore the unknown. The journey was long, but they passed the time by sharing stories, singing along to the radio, and stopping at roadside stands to sample local food.
As they drove along the dusty roads, they began to realize that this road trip was going to be unlike any other. Luisa was not only stunningly beautiful, but she was also intelligent and wise beyond her years. She challenged their perspectives on life, love, and relationships, and they were fascinated by her wisdom.
The boys were also surprised at how comfortable they felt around Luisa. She wasn’t like any other woman they had met, and they could sense that she was attracted to both of them. As they got to know her better, they began to understand their own feelings towards her.
The road trip was just getting started, and they had no idea of the life-changing experiences that lay ahead of them.
Chapter 2 – “The Road Trip Begins”:
Julio and Tenoch spent the entire day getting ready for the wedding. Excitement buzzed through the air as they dressed up in their finest suits and made their way to the church. As they mingled with family and friends, they stumbled upon Luisa, their friend’s cousin, who had just come back to Mexico after living in Spain for years.
She was just as attractive as they remembered. With her long brown hair, piercing green eyes, and curvy figure, she had a presence that drew them in. They chatted for a while, and she revealed that she was recently separated from her husband.
As the wedding ended, Julio and Tenoch bid their goodbyes and began to walk away. When Luisa caught up with them, she made a surprising declaration. “I’m going to the beach, and I’m driving myself. Why don’t you guys come with me?”
Julio and Tenoch were taken aback by the invitation. They knew it was an opportunity they couldn’t pass up. With wide grins and a sense of adventure, they eagerly agreed.
The next morning, they met up with Luisa at a local gas station and loaded up her car with supplies for the road trip. As they drove, they took in the sights of Mexico’s countryside, stopping at roadside stands to eat local food and drink cervezas.
The atmosphere was light and carefree as they laughed and shared stories of their childhood. Julio and Tenoch were amazed by Luisa’s carefree spirit and worldly wisdom. Despite the age difference, there was a sense of camaraderie and mutual respect between the three.
As the sun began to set, they found themselves on a deserted stretch of road with nothing but a vast expanse of sand on either side. Luisa brought the car to a stop and announced that they should set up camp and spend the night under the stars.
The boys eagerly agreed as they helped her pitch a tent and started a fire. Once the fire was roaring, they sat around it, talking and drinking more cervezas. The conversation roamed from their hopes and fears to their darkest secrets and unfulfilled desires.
Julio was surprised at how open and honest they were being with Luisa. He felt a sense of intimacy and comfort around her that he had never experienced before. Tenoch, on the other hand, felt a growing attraction to Luisa. He couldn’t keep his eyes off of her as they talked, and he found himself hoping that she felt the same way.
As the night grew darker, the conversation turned more flirtatious, and Luisa suggested they take a walk on the beach. The boys eagerly agreed, and they set out towards the ocean.
They walked in silence for a while, taking in the beauty of the moonlit beach. Luisa suddenly turned towards them, “This might sound crazy, but I feel like we have something special here. Something that’s hard to describe.” She paused for a moment and continued, “I hope we can explore this further. I feel alive with you guys.”
The boys were surprised by her confession. They had never felt so close to someone before, especially someone they had just met. As they continued walking, they felt a newfound sense of excitement and anticipation. They weren’t sure what was in store for them, but they knew this was an adventure they wouldn’t soon forget.
Chapter 3 – “The Beach House”:
As the sun rises on their second day of the trip, the trio packs up the car and hits the road. Luisa navigates through winding roads and lush greenery, pointing out various sights along the way. The drive is a mix of laughter, music, and idle chatter.
As they approach Luisa’s beach house, the boys can’t help but gawk at the stunning ocean view. The house is small but charming, with a rustic feel that adds to its allure. Luisa shows them around the property, drawing their attention to the outdoor shower, the large deck, and the hammocks hanging between palm trees.
After dropping off their bags, the trio heads out to explore the nearby town. They wander through markets and sample local street food, soaking up the vibrant atmosphere. Luisa takes them to her favorite art gallery, where she introduces them to the owner and chats about her love for painting.
Back at the beach house, the boys offer to cook dinner, and Luisa happily accepts. They raid the kitchen, pulling out various ingredients and getting to work. The music is turned up, and the wine flows freely as they cook and joke around.
As they sit down to eat, the conversation takes a more serious turn. Luisa shares her thoughts on life, art, and her own struggles. The boys listen intently, amazed by her depth and wisdom. They open up about their own insecurities and dreams, and the conversation becomes more intimate.
After dinner, they move to the deck, where they continue to talk and drink under the stars. Eventually, the topic shifts to relationships and sex. The boys are intrigued by Luisa’s experience and knowledge, and they pepper her with questions. She answers honestly and openly, not shying away from any topic.
As the night wears on, the mood becomes more sensual. Luisa suggests they all skinny-dip in the ocean, and the boys eagerly agree. They exchange glances, their attraction to each other palpable but unspoken.
As they wade into the warm water, the boys can’t help but stare at Luisa’s curves and glowing skin. She laughs and splashes them, encouraging them to let loose and enjoy the moment. They swim and joke around, but the tension between them continues to build.
When they return to the beach house, the boys offer to give Luisa a massage. She lies down on the deck, her body glistening with water and moonlight. The boys work in tandem, their hands gliding over her skin in perfect harmony. They avoid any inappropriate touches, but the energy between them is electric.
As the massage comes to an end, Luisa thanks the boys, her voice low and sultry. They exchange a charged look, unsure of what the night will bring. They retreat to their respective rooms, but sleep eludes them. The boys toss and turn, their minds consumed by thoughts of Luisa. They know they shouldn’t act on their desires, but the temptation is too strong. Luisa, too, lies awake, her body humming with need. The consequences of their actions are far from their minds as they drift off to sleep, dreaming of what the next day will bring.
Chapter 4 – “Revelations”
As the night went on, the trio found themselves more relaxed and comfortable around each other. They shared more personal stories and secrets that they had never talked about before. It was as if their connection deepened beyond their initial attraction.
Luisa started to feel more comfortable around the boys, and she found herself opening up to them about her past. She revealed that she had been married before and that she had lost her husband in a tragic accident. She had been struggling to find her place in the world since his death. Tenoch and Julio listened intently, both feeling empathy for her loss.
As the conversation continued, Luisa started to feel the sexual tension between the boys and her. She knew that she was older than them, but she found herself attracted to their youthfulness. She decided to push the limits and see how far they were willing to go.
She got up from the table and walked over to where the boys were sitting. She sat down next to Julio and ran her hand over his shoulder. He looked at her, surprised, but didn’t push her away. She then turned to Tenoch and did the same thing. He looked at her with a smile and laid his head on her shoulder.
The boys were both feeling a rush of excitement and fear. They knew that they were attracted to Luisa, but they also knew that they were just teenagers. They had never been with an older woman before, and the thought of it was both exhilarating and terrifying.
Luisa leaned in and kissed Julio. He was taken aback at first, but he quickly responded. As they kissed, Tenoch watched, feeling a mixture of jealousy and excitement. He didn’t want to be left out, so he leaned in and kissed Luisa too. The three of them were now involved in a passionate kiss, exploring each other’s bodies with their hands.
The moment was intense, but it was also short-lived. They all pulled away, feeling a sudden sense of guilt. They knew that what they were doing was wrong, but they couldn’t help themselves. They were caught up in the moment.
As the night went on, they all decided to go for a walk on the beach. The moon was full, and the waves were crashing against the shore. They walked in silence, each of them lost in their own thoughts.
Finally, Luisa spoke up. “I think we need to talk about what just happened,” she said.
Tenoch and Julio both looked at her, unsure of what she was going to say.
“I know that what we just did was wrong,” she continued. “But I also know that we are all attracted to each other. We can’t deny our feelings.”
Julio and Tenoch both nodded, feeling relieved that she had brought it up.
Luisa looked at both of them and said, “I know that this is complicated, but I want to explore this further. But we have to be careful. We can’t let anyone else know about this. It could ruin all of our lives.”
The boys both agreed, feeling excited but also nervous. They had never been in a situation like this before. They knew that it was risky, but they also knew that they wanted to explore their feelings for each other.
As they walked back to the house, they all felt a sense of anticipation and excitement. They knew that they were about to embark on a new journey, one that would challenge them in ways they had never imagined. They had no idea where this journey would take them, but they were willing to take the risk. They were ready for whatever lay ahead.
Chapter 5 – “The Beach”
The sun was shining brightly on the sandy beach, and the ocean waves were crashing against the shore as the trio enjoyed their first full day at the beach. Tenoch couldn’t help but steal glances at Luisa, who was sunbathing in a skimpy bikini, while Julio took in the beauty of the ocean. They had spent the last few days enjoying each other’s company, and they were slowly getting to know each other more deeply.
As they sat under the shade of a palm tree, they discussed their favorite films, music, and books. Luisa was impressed by the boys’ artistic tastes and maturity, and she was slowly letting her guard down around them. Tenoch and Julio were enjoying the attention, but they were also drawn to Luisa’s intelligence and wit.
After eating lunch at a local seafood restaurant, they returned to the beach, and Luisa suggested they take a swim. Tenoch and Julio stripped down to their swim trunks and ran into the water, laughing and splashing each other. Luisa watched them from the shore, admiring their carefree spirit and youthful energy.
As the afternoon wore on, the trio started to feel the effects of the blazing sun, and they retreated under the shade of the palm tree. Luisa suggested they play a drinking game, and they eagerly agreed. They downed shots of tequila and rum, and before long, they were all feeling the effects of the alcohol.
As the sun began to set, they took a stroll along the beach, their arms interlocked. Tenoch and Julio were feeling bold, and they began to make moves on Luisa, kissing her neck and whispering sweet nothings in her ear. Luisa didn’t resist, and she enjoyed the attention, but she also knew she was playing with fire.
As the night fell, they returned to the beach house, and Luisa cooked a delicious meal of grilled fish and vegetables. They ate and drank wine, enjoying their evening together. Tenoch and Julio were becoming bolder, and they began to touch Luisa more intimately, running their fingers along her thigh and kissing her passionately. Luisa couldn’t resist their advances, and she found herself caught up in the moment.
As the night progressed, they retreated to Luisa’s bedroom, their passion ignited. They undressed each other slowly, taking in every inch of skin, and their bodies intertwined in a frenzy of desire. They explored each other’s bodies, giving and receiving pleasure, and the night turned into a blur of ecstasy.
As the sun rose the next morning, they lay entwined in Luisa’s bed, their bodies still humming with desire. They knew they had crossed a line, and they were filled with a mixture of guilt and excitement. They cuddled and talked, sharing their deepest thoughts and emotions, and they felt a deeper connection than ever before.
But as the day wore on, the reality of their situation began to sink in. They knew they couldn’t keep up their secret affair forever, and they were faced with the difficult decision of how to proceed. They knew that their friendship and trust had been forever altered, but they also knew that they couldn’t go back to the way things were before.
As they returned to the beach, they tried to act as if nothing had happened, but the tension between them was palpable. They tried to enjoy the beauty of the ocean and the sand, but they were each lost in their own thoughts. They knew that their lives would never be the same, and they were uncertain about what the future held.
As the sun set, they retreated to the beach house, and they sat silently, lost in their thoughts. They knew that they had to talk about what had happened, but they were afraid of what the other might say. Finally, Luisa broke the silence, and she expressed her deep love and admiration for both Julio and Tenoch. She knew that they had a special bond, and she hoped they could find a way to preserve their friendship.
Tenoch and Julio listened to Luisa’s words, and they knew that they couldn’t deny their feelings for her. They expressed their love and gratitude for her, but they also knew that they couldn’t go back to the way things were before. They knew that they needed time to figure things out, and they promised each other that they would always be there for each other, no matter what.
As the night wore on, they retreated to their separate rooms, their hearts heavy with emotion. They knew that they had crossed a line, and they were uncertain about what lay ahead. But despite their fears and doubts, they knew that they had shared a special and unforgettable experience that would stay with them for the rest of their lives.
Chapter 6 – “Jealousy and Betrayal”
The hot Mexican sun beat down on the trio as they lounged on the beach, recovering from a night of partying. Julio and Tenoch wore sunglasses to hide their blood-shot eyes while Luisa sipped on a mimosa. The peaceful silence was interrupted by the sound of a car engine.
A man emerged from the vehicle, introducing himself as Jano, Luisa’s husband. Jano was a successful writer, and the boys were in awe of him. They all sat down together, chatting and sharing stories. The atmosphere was friendly at first, but it soon turned awkward when Jano’s possessive nature became evident.
As the day went on, Julio noticed that Luisa was acting differently. She was no longer flirty and playful as she had been before. Julio sensed that something was wrong, but he couldn’t put his finger on it.
That evening, they all sat down for dinner, but the mood was tense. They discussed the previous night’s events, and Jano made it clear that he was not happy with his wife’s behavior. Things got worse when Jano accused Luisa of sleeping with one of the boys.
Tenoch, who was already on edge, snapped. He revealed that it was he who had slept with Luisa and declared that he didn’t regret it. Julio was stunned, and Luisa was visibly upset. Jano was livid, and he stormed out of the house. The once-idyllic vacation had turned into a warzone.
The air was thick with tension, and the trio retreated into their separate rooms. Julio lay on his bed, lost in thought. He was angry at Tenoch for betraying their newfound bond, but he was also attracted to Luisa. He knew he should back off, but he couldn’t ignore his feelings.
The next day, the boys decided to take a hike, leaving Luisa behind to deal with her husband. Julio was still reeling from Tenoch’s confession, but he tried to put on a brave face. As they walked, Tenoch revealed that he was jealous of Julio’s relationship with Luisa. He couldn’t bear the thought of losing her to someone else.
Julio was taken aback. He hadn’t realized that Tenoch had feelings for Luisa. They had both been so caught up in the moment that they hadn’t seen the bigger picture. Julio felt guilty for his attraction to Luisa and knew he needed to step back.
Back at the house, Jano had packed his bags and left without a word. Luisa was devastated, but she knew she had to face the consequences of her actions. She and the boys sat down to talk things through. They apologized for their mistakes and promised to stay true to their friendship.
The trip may have been ruined, but the lessons they had learned were invaluable. They had discovered the dangers of jealousy and betrayal, but they had also learned the importance of honesty and communication. They left the beach house changed people, with a newfound appreciation for the fragility of relationships.
Chapter 7 – “Desire, Heartbreak, and Regret”:
The morning after their passionate night together, the trio awakens to a tense and awkward atmosphere. Julio and Tenoch avoid eye contact with each other, while Luisa remains distant and aloof. The unspoken tension between the three is palpable, and they all know that their carefree adventure has taken a dark turn.
Luisa retreats to her room, leaving the boys alone to deal with their emotions. Julio feels guilty about betraying his best friend, while Tenoch is struggling to come to terms with his own feelings. They spend the day in silence, avoiding each other’s company, and wandering aimlessly around the beach.
As the sun sets, the trio reunites at the beach house, where Luisa confronts them both about their behavior. She expresses her disappointment in their actions and warns them about the consequences of their recklessness. Her words hit Julio and Tenoch hard, and they realize the gravity of their actions.
The tension between Tenoch and Julio reaches a boiling point, and they erupt in a heated argument. Accusations and insults fly between them, revealing their deep-seated insecurities and fears. Luisa intervenes, reminding them of the bond they share and the importance of their friendship.
As the night wears on, Luisa confides in the boys about her own tragic past, and they listen intently, empathizing with her pain. Their honesty and vulnerability bring them closer together, and they find solace in each other’s company.
However, their moment of peace is short-lived when they discover the truth about Luisa’s relationship with Tenoch’s father. Shock and betrayal ripple through the group, shattering the fragile trust they had rebuilt. Tenoch lashes out, accusing Luisa of using him and disrespecting his family.
Luisa breaks down in tears, overwhelmed with regret and heartbreak. She explains her own turmoil, her love for the boys, and her fear of facing the reality of her own life. The trio sits in silence, grappling with the weight of their emotions and the consequences of their actions.
As the night draws to a close, Julio and Tenoch apologize to Luisa, and they embrace in a tearful reconciliation. They promise to remain true to each other and to cherish the memories they have shared. With heavy hearts, they prepare to return to reality, knowing that their carefree adventure has come to an end.
Chapter 7 is a turning point in the novel, where the characters’ desires and actions come to a head, resulting in heartbreak and regret. The tension and conflict between Tenoch and Julio represent the struggle to balance their own desires with their loyalty to each other. Luisa’s own secrets and past add another layer of complexity and turmoil to the story, forcing the trio to confront their own fears and regrets. The unpredictable twists and turns in this chapter keep the reader engaged and invested in the characters’ journey, building to a climax that sets the stage for the rest of the novel.
Chapter 8 – “Lessons Learned”
The drive back to Mexico City was silent, with each of them lost in their thoughts. The reality of their choices had hit them hard, and they were all struggling to come to terms with the consequences of their actions. Luisa, who had been the most affected, sat in the backseat, staring out the window, deep in thought.
Julio and Tenoch glanced at each other, feeling the guilt and regret that had settled in their hearts. They both knew what they had done had hurt Luisa and the guilt of their actions weighed heavily on their conscience.
The car pulled up outside Luisa’s apartment, and she stepped out, her eyes cast down. Before she closed the door, she turned to look at the boys. “Thanks for the trip,” she said, her voice almost a whisper.
They watched her as she walked away, feeling a sense of emptiness and loss. They knew that the trip had changed them all and that things would never be the same again.
The boys drove back to Tenoch’s house, and as they sat on the couch, they reflected on the lessons they had learned during their journey. They had learned about love, friendship, and the consequences of their actions. They had learned that sometimes, even the strongest relationships can be shattered by one selfish act.
Julio spoke up, breaking the silence. “I messed up, man. I’m sorry for what I did.”
Tenoch nodded, “Me too. I should have known better.”
They sat in silence for a few minutes, their thoughts swirling around in their heads. Finally, Julio spoke up again. “You know, I realized something on this trip.”
“What’s that?” Tenoch asked.
“I realized that I’m not ready for a serious relationship. I need to focus on myself and figure out who I am before I can commit to anyone else.”
Tenoch nodded in agreement. “Yeah, me too. I don’t want to hurt anyone else like we hurt Luisa.”
The boys spent the rest of the night talking about their future plans, their dreams, and their fears. They talked about what they had learned from their mistakes and how they could use that knowledge to become better people.
As the night drew to a close, they hugged each other tightly, realizing that their friendship had survived the worst of times. They promised to stay true to each other and their newfound knowledge, vowing to never hurt anyone else the way they had hurt Luisa.
The next morning, they woke up early, ready to face whatever the future held. They knew that their journey had been a turning point in their lives, and they were determined to make the best of it. They hugged each other one last time and parted ways, ready to start a new chapter in their lives.
As they walked away, they knew that the lessons they had learned on their journey would stay with them forever. They had learned about the fragility of relationships, the power of love, and the importance of being true to oneself. They knew that they would make mistakes in the future, but they also knew that they had the strength to face them head-on, armed with the knowledge they had gained.
The trip had been a rollercoaster ride of emotions, but in the end, it had taught them the most valuable lesson of all: that life is a journey, and the only way to navigate it successfully is to stay true to oneself, to learn from one’s mistakes, and to never lose sight of what is truly important – love, friendship, and the pursuit of happiness.
Chapter 9 – “A New Beginning”:
As the journey to the beach house came to an end, so did the boys’ and Luisa’s trip. They looked out of the car windows, taking one last glance at the beautiful scenery. The sun was setting, painting the sky in shades of pink, orange, and gold. The boys sat in silence, still processing everything that happened during their journey. Luisa, sensing their mood, broke the silence.
“I’m going to miss you guys,” she said, her voice barely above a whisper.
“We’re going to miss you too,” Tenoch said, his voice full of emotion.
“We learned a lot from you,” Julio said, his voice shaky.
“I learned a lot from you too,” Luisa said, a small smile appearing on her lips. “You guys are wise beyond your years.”
They arrived back in Mexico City, and the boys dropped Luisa off at her cousin’s house. They hugged each other tightly, promising to keep in touch. As the car pulled away, Tenoch looked at Julio.
“What are we going to do now?” he asked.
“I don’t know,” Julio replied honestly. “But we’ll figure it out together.”
They returned to their homes, but things were different now. They couldn’t go back to who they were before the trip. They had seen and experienced too much. They had grown up. They had learned that life was more complicated than they thought, that love and friendship were messy and unpredictable.
The first few weeks were the hardest. They couldn’t stop thinking about Luisa and the trip. They missed the feeling of freedom and the excitement of the unknown. They missed each other’s company. But slowly, they started to adjust to their lives again. Tenoch went back to school, and Julio started working at a local restaurant.
One night, they decided to meet up at their favorite spot, the rooftop of Julio’s building. They sat in silence for a while, watching the city lights.
“I don’t want to lose what we had,” Tenoch said suddenly.
Julio looked at him, surprised. “What do you mean?”
“I mean us. Our friendship. I don’t want us to drift apart.”
Julio nodded. “I don’t want that either.”
They sat in silence again, thinking.
“Do you remember what Luisa said about not worrying about the future?” Tenoch asked.
Julio smiled. “Yeah, she said we should live in the moment.”
“Well, let’s do that. Let’s make the most of now,” Tenoch said, his eyes shining.
Julio grinned. “What do you have in mind?”
Tenoch stood up, extending his hand. “Let’s dance.”
Julio laughed, taking his hand. They danced on the rooftop, under the stars, the music blasting from Julio’s phone. They didn’t care who saw them or what anyone thought. All that mattered was this moment, this friendship, this love.
As the night went on, they made more plans for the future. They wanted to travel, to experience more of life. But for now, they were content with this moment, this friendship, this love. They promised to always be there for each other, to never forget this trip and what they learned.
As they parted ways that night, Tenoch hugged Julio tightly. “I love you, man,” he said.
“I love you too,” Julio replied, his voice filled with emotion.
They walked away, smiling, knowing that they had each other and that anything was possible.
And so, a new beginning had started for them. They didn’t know what the future held, but they were ready to face it together, to live in the moment, to embrace the uncertainty, and to never forget the lessons they learned on their journey.

EXT. MEXICAN TOWN – DAY
We see JULIO and TENOCH, two teenage boys, walking down a vibrant street filled with colorful buildings and people.
I can’t wait for this wedding, man! It’s going to be so lit!
Yeah, it’s going to be wild. But have you seen Luisa?
She’s our friend’s cousin. She’s gorgeous!
So, you have a thing for her?
Don’t we both?
Suddenly, a woman walking towards them catches their attention. She’s older, beautiful and confident.
Luisa walks up to them, clearly knowing who they are.
You must be Julio and Tenoch. I’m Luisa, your friend’s cousin.
The boys are speechless, but they manage to compose themselves quickly.
Um, yeah, that’s us. Hi.
You’re coming to the wedding too?
Yes, I am. But, I was thinking of doing something different after the wedding. Would you guys be interested?
What do you have in mind?
How about a road trip to the beach?
The boys are thrilled. They can’t believe their luck.
Yes! Let’s do it!
Count us in!
EXT. MEXICAN HIGHWAY – DAY
JULIO and TENOCH, two young Mexican teenagers, drive their car on the highway. They sing along to the radio, enjoying their summer freedom.
(pointing to a car)
Hey, look who’s there.
It’s Manuel, our rich friend.
Manuel pulls up beside them in his fancy sports car. The boys wave at each other.
Hey, guys. Where are you off to?
Nowhere special. Just enjoying the sun.
Well, I’m heading to my cousin’s wedding at this beach town. You guys should come with me.
(whispering to Tenoch)
We don’t have to tell our parents.
Sounds good. We’re in.
Great. Follow me.
The boys follow Manuel’s car and soon arrive at a beautiful and secluded beach town. They see MANUEL’s cousin, LUISA, standing on the beach alone.
Yeah, but she’s way out of our league.
Luisa greets them warmly, intrigued by their youthful energy.
So, what brings you boys to this beach town?
Manuel invited us to his cousin’s wedding.
But we decided to take a detour and enjoy the sun.
Well, why don’t you boys join me for a drink at my beach house? Some of my friends are coming over later, and it’ll be a nice change of pace.
JULIO and TENOCH exchange glances before accepting her invitation and following her to her secluded beach house.

Scene 3 – “The Beach House”:
EXT. A secluded beach house – DAY
The camera shows a stunning beach house surrounded by lush palm trees and crystal-clear waters. Julio, Tenoch, and Luisa pull up in a rusty car.
“Wow, this is even better than I imagined!”
“Not bad for a broke-ass beach house, huh?”
“Thanks for the compliment, boys. I’ll take it as a compliment, but this place is more than just a house. It’s a sanctuary, a temple of inspiration, a place where anything is possible.”
The trio walks toward the entrance, and Luisa unlocks the door.
“Welcome to my humble abode. Feel free to explore and make yourselves at home.”
The camera shows a beautiful interior design, filled with art, books, and exotic souvenirs.
“Whoa, you’re an artist too? I had no idea!”
“Yep, I’m a jack-of-all-trades, a master of none. But seriously, Julio, you’re quite talented yourself. I saw some of your drawings in your room.”
(whispering to Julio)
“Are you trying to impress her or what?”
“No, I’m just saying. She’s cool, that’s all.”
“Guys, let’s not argue. We’re here to have fun, remember?”
The camera shows the trio sitting on a couch, sipping drinks, and staring at the ocean view.

The camera shows the trio enjoying a lavish dinner, laughing, and sharing stories.
LATER THAT NIGHT:
The camera shows Julio and Tenoch sharing a bedroom, while Luisa sleeps in another room.
(turning off the lights)
“Good night, Tenoch. Thanks for inviting me on this trip.”
“You’re welcome, Julio. Just don’t snore too loud, okay?”
“I won’t. But hey, Tenoch, can I ask you something?”
“Sure, what’s up?”
“Have you ever…you know…been with a girl before?”
“Why are you asking me that, Julio? Are you trying to imply something?”
“No, no, I’m sorry. I just had a weird dream, and I feel confused sometimes, you know?”
“I understand. Look, Julio, it’s normal to feel that way. But you have to trust yourself, your instincts, your desires. Don’t let anyone else tell you what to feel or who to be.”
“Thanks, Tenoch. I really appreciate your advice. You’re a true friend.”
(slapping his shoulder)
“Anytime, bro. Now let’s get some sleep. We have a lot of things to do tomorrow!”
INT. BEACH HOUSE – NIGHT
Julio, Tenoch, and Luisa sit around the table, drinks in hand. The air is thick with tension, each of them awaiting the other to speak first.
LUISA: (breaking the silence) I have something to admit.
TENCOH: (nervously) What is it?
LUISA: (takes a deep breath) I’m married.
Julio and Tenoch exchange a surprised glance.
LUISA: Yes. But my husband and I have an open marriage.
TENCOH: (processing the information) So, you’re not cheating on him?
LUISA: No, but I do feel guilty for being here with you two. It’s complicated.
JULIO: (placing his hand on Luisa’s) We don’t judge you, Luisa.
TENCOH: (nodding in agreement) We’re all just figuring things out.
LUISA: (smiling, grateful for their understanding) Thank you.
JULIO: (taking a sip of his drink) I have something to confess too.
TENCOH: (leaning in) What is it?
JULIO: (nervously) I’m in love with you, Luisa.
Luisa’s eyes widen in surprise. Tenoch looks stunned.
TENCOH: (stunned) Julio, what the hell?
JULIO: (defeated) I know, I’m sorry. I just had to tell you.
LUISA: (putting her hand on Julio’s) I appreciate your honesty, Julio. But I think we all need to take a step back and figure out what we want.
TENCOH: (angrily stands) I want to go home.
Julio tries to stop him, but Tenoch quickly exits the house.
Luisa and Julio sit in silence, both deep in thought.
JULIO: (breaking the silence) I’m sorry, Luisa. I didn’t mean to ruin everything.
LUISA: (smiling softly) You didn’t ruin anything, Julio. We’re just figuring things out, like you said.
They continue to converse late into the night, with newfound honesty and understanding.

INT. BEACH HOUSE – MORNING
Julio, Tenoch, and Luisa are sitting on the patio outside their beach house, sipping on coffee, and admiring the ocean view.
Luisa: “This place has a calming effect, doesn’t it? It makes you forget all your worries and just enjoy life.”
Tenoch: “I never realized how much I needed this break until now. It’s like a reset button for the mind.”
Julio: “I’m glad we came here together. It’s amazing how much we’ve learned about each other in such a short time.”
Luisa: “Speaking of which, I have a surprise for you both.”
Julio and Tenoch exchange puzzled looks.
Luisa: “I’ve organized a boat ride for us this evening. It’s the perfect way to explore the sea and watch the sunset.”
Tenoch: “That sounds amazing! I’ve never been on a boat before.”
Julio: “Thank you, Luisa. That’s so thoughtful of you.”
Luisa: “Anything for my two favorite boys.”
Julio and Tenoch smile, charmed by Luisa’s words.
Julio: “This trip has been incredible. I never imagined that we’d have so much fun and learn so much about ourselves and each other.”
Tenoch: “Yeah, man. I agree. It’s been one hell of a journey!”
A warm and poignant moment shared by the three, as they bask in the beauty of their surroundings and the lasting bond they’ve created.
