Ashley life changes
Chapter 1 - Just another day
Michael - I totally understand that could be hard on anyone.
Ashley - It's just I'm tired of doing the same thing every day. I've been staying home doing absolutely nothing for 3 years now. I don't have a job or even any friends anymore.... I don't know sometimes it just seems like killing myself would solve it all...
Michael - How would you like your life to be?
Ashley - I guess I want to be more like other people.
Michael - What do you mean other people?
Ashley - Like go out every other night, have friends, have a job...idk...
Michael - The good thing is that everything you just said is doable, it's just going to take time.
Ashley - It's just hard to do anything like that with my social anxiety...
Michael - Your at a crosswalk right now you can either go right or left. Right leads to change and Left leads to the same, you decide which path to take.
Michael - And with that our times up, see again tomorrow.
Ashley - You know it's not that easy...
Michael - It doesn't matter how slow you walk, as long as you don't stop.
Ashley - [Walks out of the room]
(The car ride home)
Mom - Did you have fun in your counseling session?
Ashley - Sure if you count talking about my s****y life fun.
Mom - Sorry I asked.
Ashley - .....
Mom - You know you can tell me anything.
Ashley - I know...
Mom - You know Katy moving out tomorrow to her college dorm. You want to tag along?
Ashley - No not really.
Mom - .....
Mom - Before you lock yourself in your room, why don't we all eat dinner together.
Ashley - I'm not hungry...
Katy - Come on sis eat dinner with us, all you ever do is stay in your room all day.
Ashley - No thanks [Walks into her room]
Katy - Do you think these counseling session are working?
Mom - I don't know anymore..
Ashley - I really don't understand why I'm even alive...I'm nothing but a burden to my family... Why can't I just be normal...
(Knocks on the door)
Mom - Hey there's some leftovers if you get hungry later. [Walks away]
Ashley - ......
(The next day)
(On the kitchen table there's a note)
Note - Ashley, your sister and me went to her dorm to get her stuff arranged.
Ashley - ....
Ashley - [Lays on the grass looking into the sky, listening to Animal Collective - Fireworks] Just another boring day...
(Some girl blocks Ashley vision with her head)
??? - Hi
Ashley - [Surprised, slams her head into the stranger]
??? - F**K!! That f*****g hurt...
Ashley - Ah...
??? - Why did you do that for?
Ashley - .....
??? - Huh?
Ashley - .....
??? - Do you talk?
Ashley - Yeah...
??? - Your freaking weird..[Stands up] well anyways I just came to invite you to our club. [Hands Ashley a card] My name is Cam and if you make fun of me like i don't know suggest my name is in Camera. I'll rip your tongue out and feed it to my dogs. [Smiling] The club is for people to hangout and have fun simple as that. If you do decide to join us just answer the question on the back.
Ashley - uh okay?..
Cam - Good! Well I'm off there's a lot more people to invite. [Walks away]
Ashley - What just happened?...
(Later in the day - Counseling Session)
Michael - She was a odd one.
Ashley - She couldn't have been more than 14 years old.
Michael - A bit young to be giving you treats, maybe if she was 16 then it would be fine.
Ashley - Your not helping.
Michael - Sorry. [Looking at the card] It says they meet every day at 5 to 8pm, but it doesn't have an address anywhere...
Ashley - If you look at the back of the card it asks you if you want to join, then a line for your answer.
Michael - Do you wish to join The Club?
Ashley - All of this just seems like a joke to me.
Michael - Well it looks like our time has run out.
(Back home - Ashley Room)
Ashley - [Looking at the card] Do I want to join The Club?....[Grabs a pen and writes down yes] Now what? [Puts the card on her desk and goes to bed] Who I'm I kidding, who wants a person like me in their club. [Falls asleep]
