one of our long time employees
[ He pauses for effect & the camera
zooms in on his smiling co-star. ]
MONICA: Nice day, isn't it?
[ She states presenting the drink
that is currently chilling her hands. ]
LANDYN: Yes. Brisk falls are common
here in Magic Springs. Monica is
indulging in one of TA's new
chilled breakfast drinks.

tango. Awakening and refreshing.
[ Landyn gazes straight into the camera. ]
LANDYN: Find these at an Aisle's deli.
See you back soon.
[ Later inside, Monica is joined by Hahn
& Kristyn in the break room. ]
KRISTYN: So how'd did it go?
HAHN: Yeah, I'm interested too. Con-
sidering I wasn't even asked.
[ They smirk it off but he is deadly
MONICA: I was nervous but Landyn
made things so easy. He even joked
about the writing between takes.
Well I have to get going but I can't
wait for you all to see it.
[ She walks out of the room. Trying to
contain the strange energy that is
pulsating inside her. ]

Across town at LeeVigh's.
[ Tessa, LeeVigh, Joh, & Weis
are sitting on the lone sofa in
an otherwise empty living'
"You know we moved in here
exactly two years ago."
TESSA: I was starting to think
I would never see the day. You
three have been stuck like glue
ever since. And after the tour.
[ She stands up, noticing how close
the three are seated. LeeVigh is
playfully slamming into Joh from
the side trying to knock him over. ]
LEEVIGH: You missed it babe. Zain
killed it last night.
WEIS: Yeah he won his first challenge.
I knew he had it when I seen it

TRAILYN: Oh yeah, it worked.
MONICA: I told you. See I'm smart-
er than you may want to believe
[ Her daughter rolls her eyes. ]
MONICA: Who all made it?
TRAILYN: Jai, Chais, Billy,
some girl he likes, Jai's
friend Tom, & Little H.
MONICA: You decided not to
TRAILYN: Mairya was giving me
clues that she didn't want to
see him. I had no other
[ Her phone starts to play a
familar alternative tune. ]
"He's calling me."
MONICA: Remember he is
still your friend and that
means you should take
time for him. Just keep
that in mind.
[ She watches her daughter
leave the room. ]

after him. ]
"You know that car has fleas

feline flutters off. ]
LEEVIGH: Sorry kitty.
WEIS: Don't even tell me you
were out here crying.
LEEVIGH: No you little fucker.
But you're moving in with your
boyfriend (and Joh temporarily).
It's a little different for me.
WEIS: How so? You and Tessa
are in a good place.
LEEVIGH: Once it's just me and
her then the expectations will
WEIS: I know what you mean
but you don't have to live
any certain way. It's what-
ever works, look at me &

TRAILYN: No, it's just quiet here.
Most people have already left.
[ Little H stifles a laugh at
her quickness. ]
CALEB: What is Mairya's issue
with me? She acts like we're
friends when we're in class
then she bans me from her
TRAILYN: You know how she
feels about your relationship
with H. It's only a matter of
time blah, blah, blah.
CALEB: Just because me and
her didn't last that's pretty
LITTLE H: Who cares. Just worry
about the friends you do have.
[ After they hang up. Caleb is
shown laying still across his bed.
Sitting up he removes a picture
frame from his wall. He writes
quickly a six letter word & re
-places the cover up. ]
SCENE SIX :
[ LeeVigh is driving with Tessa
in the passenger seat. ]
"You seem excited. It's not like
I've never stayed at your place

We're like a married couple
[ She is so contained in herself
that she doesn't noticed the
worried look growing on Lee-
He chooses to keep silent,
relaxing into the radio &
passing scenery instead. ]
LEEVIGH: Yeah no rush.
[ He let's out, testing the
TESSA: Of course not.
