Scene: Silence, sort of. The car’s air conditioning hums steadily in the background. The occasional fiddling with the location of the mic (phone) is annoying. It’s probably take 2 (or 3). The transgressor’s deep breaths manifest irregularly. Birds… Are the windows lowered? Not fully, right? A simple rhythmic tapping of the steering wheel fades in-and-out. The car door opens and, finally… finally: Alone.

T: “You actually came?”

V: “Yea.”

T: “My goodness.”

V: “Yea.. My mom’s all worried – she’s like: ‘Oh my god, you’re the only one – ahhahah’ "

T: “Oh well.”

V: “Yea.. ridiculous.”

T: “Well I mean if you stil– if you don’t wanna go… Say the word..”

V: “I want to go.”

T: “–I’ll turn you around.”

T laughs.

V: “Noo.”

T laughs.

V: “You woke up like at, what? Like 6:30 to come here.”

T laughs.

T: “I had to wake up anyways to go to L so..”

V: “Huh? What do you mean?”

T: “Cause.. I had to wake up early, cause otherwise if I didn’t wait for you I had to go over there. Help out.”

V: “Are you going to [REDACTED].”

T: “No.”

V: “̴͚̎͆̄T̴͓͈̖̓h̷̙̱̙̍ě̷͕̎̅n̶̮͎͓̋̿̆?̷̛͍̝̋̚"̶̢̰̏͘ͅ

V: “Oh god.”

T: “I mean, there were [REDACTED].. but, the one’s who didn’t. Pfft.”

V: “Good god”

T: “Yes, yes.”

V: “Can you put your happy music?”

T: “My music?– Yea, of course.. I mean we can put the radio?”

T: “Yeah, go ahead.”

V flips through radio stations.

V: “Oh… How do you change it?”

T laughs.

V: “No!”

T: “Oh you want– here.”

V: “Ah.”

T: “Around now?”

V: “Yeah, around now.. Cause one of M’s slaves picked us up; and he would always put that and it was soo funny.”

T laughs

V: “Yea honestly! They have to like– you have to owe her like a favor or something. Like, why are you here?”

T laugh

V: “R has a theory… Did she like, save your life as a child? She financed a surgery or something, right?”

T laug

V: “It’s probably accurate, cause.. i– it just doesn’t add up.”

T lau

T: “Well I have nothing better to do. Why not– why not spend it being useful?”

V: “You have nothing better to do?”

T: “No, no, I can’t [REDACTED].”

V: “Oh, that’s kinda sad.”

T: “So…”

V: “Mmm… Good for you.”

The radio plays…

FIII

T: “Ok…”

V: “–Why is he letting us pass if it’s red? What a terrible..”

T: “To minimize traffic.”

V: “–person.”

T: “Traffic always arises as a result of that light.”

V: “Oh my god… I think that the cops that just stand there to tell you where to go, I think– I think they’re so useless.”

T: “Yeah, there should be– there should be N’s grandfather, um A, S..”

V: “But not like every single parent?”

T: “There should be a couple more parents than we’re– than you’re used to.”

V: “Ok.”

Music plays in the background.

T: “Everyone canceled. I was like– I was like: ‘Oh, ok. So at least like 4 are going.’ And then one–by–one: ‘No.’ ‘Nope.’ ‘I’m out–’ "

V: “–Like the same excuse: ‘I hope you have fun!’, ‘I hope you have fun!’.”

V: “Yeah, I was like: Uhhhggghh, ok. But then C was going and then she cancelled this morning and I was already up. Like, ok, you know what? Whatever. Let’s just do this…”

T: “You know, once C bailed, I was thinking: I’ll just wait for V to say no and, off I’d go.”

V: “Yeah…”

I hope they put it because if not, I’m changing this terrible music.”

V: “Ok. Oh, well. I’m done waiting.”

V flips through radio stations.

V: “Radios suck.”

Less terrible music plays in the background.

T: “Umm, I don’t know who’s picking you up..”

V: “My mother.”

T: “Oh, ok.”

V: “Cause, I told her– "
