TIFFANY(18) a tall thin girl with long black hair and green
eyes. Her bohemian dress makes her look like a 1960’s
hippie. She walks up to Macy(unnoticed by Macy) stops,
giggles before tapping on the locker door.

hours, Tiffany in the passenger’s seat. 1960’s music playing
in the background. Macy is in the back of the van sandwiched
between the driver’s seat and the bags and landscaping
equipment, on a little crib mattress on the floor. She
starts to look around. She notices a shovel, a pick axe and
a roll of burlap, all stained with an odd red color. Macy
starts bouncing up and down along with the van, things start
sliding into her.
MACY:
Ouch!
She looks up to see David looking at her through the rear
view mirror.
DAVID:
Sorry this stretch of road is a bit
bumpy. Just buckle down. Cousin why
not offer her something.

her eyebrow.
TIFFANY:
What? You think is laced?
The vans swerves.
Macy laughs.
MACY:
Nooo, just didn’t think you would
have a thermos, you, I always
thought you were the Starbucks
type.
TIFFANY:
True, I am. This is Moore’s.
MACY:
Oh, OK understood. Hey by the way
where is he? (Laughs) I remember
him always trying to get me alone
with him.
David shoots an angry glance toward Tiffany.
(CONTINUED)

TIFFANY:
(Nervously)
Yeah I think he had a crush on you.
She laughs as she takes the thermos, taking a large gulp.
Tomato soup dribbles down her chin.
MACY:
Can you believe Mrs. Style tried to
give me a F because I would not do
a push up. Like I was going to
break a nail!
TIFFANY:
Shut Up! How did your rents take
that?
MACY:
Easy, daddy took care of that. I
mean the whole library is named
after my family. I can’t fail a
class. Seriously her name may but
Style, but she has none.
Tiffany laughs.
TIFFANY:
What did your daddy say about you
"ruffing it?"
Macy crosses her arms and huffs.
MACY:
He laughed, he says I can’t go a
day without the staff. But, I
explained what you said. That it is
good to lower yourself to the
unfortunates. So that will listen
to you more.

definitely stays and I guess we can
keep him too.

MOORE:
You don’t understand! My mom,
though a great woman in my eyes,
has always been sick. She can’t
help it. She kept her mouth shut to
protect me. She knew if she took
the fall, they wouldn’t hurt me.
MACY:
What about Tiffany?
MOORE:
Tiffany, is one of them, flesh and
blood. I on the other hand, was(
Moore does air quotes) "brought
in".
