Scene 2

(The scene opens on Aiden, Burke, and Rachael hanging out in the hallway of their school. There is a set of lockers up stage left. There are five beanbags upstage. Aiden lays of three of the beanbags, Burke sits on one, and Rachael sits on one. The beanbags are of various colors. The fact that there are beanbags in the hallway are meant to show that the school is laid back. The light spreads across the back of the stage to shine on all three characters.  The only place the light does not hit is up stage right. This is where the three have set their backpacks.)

Burke
Come on, let’s go to the store.

Rachael
Aiden, go, and get me something to eat. Please! I have to go back to class and I haven’t eaten all day.

Aiden
I have English class. I can’t skip again. My grade is gonna drop if I keep skipping class.

Burke
What! Are you scared? Come on Pop Pop, let’s go!


Aiden
I don’t even have any money. Besides, I’m so tired. I stayed up all night finishing a project. I’ve only gotten like an hour of sleep in three days.

Rachael
I have Ms. Paskapa. She gave us project yesterday and it’s due tomorrow. I hate her so much.

Aiden
Tell the principal that you can’t be in her class anymore.

Rachael
I already tried talking to him. He doesn’t care. Yesterday he was taking a nap in the office for like the entire day. He’s so lazy.

Aiden
Then stop complaining.

(pauses)

Aiden
Fine, let’s go Burke. What do you want Rachael?

Rachael
Really? Um, get me doritos….and a soda.

Aiden
Fine. Let’s go.

(Aiden and Burke start walking away. The lights dim and Rachael leaves stage. The lights open on Aiden and Burke sitting on the stage in center stage. They both have black bags with food and cans of soda in them.)

Burke
Dude I’m gonna fail History. I skip his class like everyday.

(laughs)

Burke
I didn’t even finish my semester project.

Aiden
How! That counts for so much of your grade. What are you gonna do?
Burke
I don’t know. I’ll figure it out.

Aiden
Well, I’m not even gonna have to worry about these stupid classes.

Burke
Why not?

Aiden
Um, I’m moving to Ohio in a couple days.

Burke
Good one. What’s in Ohio?

Aiden
My step grandparents

Burke
Okay...so what are you gonna do about English?

(Aiden just looks blankly at Burke before the lights fade out.)
