A High School Love Story
Act I Scene IV- “That’s Exactly What I Mean”- The Park(Alicia is sitting by the fountain of the park. Chloe comes in running and sits next to Alicia. Emily hides behind a bush that is close by and overhears their conversation.)
Alicia- What took you so long?
Chloe- Why do you want to break up Diana and Sebastian? This morning you told Diana to go become friends with Sebastian now you don’t want them to talk to each other at all?
Alicia- I thought that if Diana became friends with Sebastian me and him would become friends too. I told her to do that so that he could like ME, not Diana.
Chloe- Girl, he likes Diana, your sister. Okay, just find another guy. There’s plenty of them out there.
Alicia- STEP-sister and that’s exactly what I mean. There’s so many out there, so Diana better get another one or else.
Chloe- Or else what? Wait- I don’t want to know, and I ain’t going to let you break them apart.
Alicia- You really think YOU can stop me? Look, if you even think about going against me at all, I swear, I ain’t going down alone. Got that?
Alicia- Don’t worry. You won’t be the only one helping me. I’ll get more people to help us. Two for now, but then more and more. I don’t care if I have to get the whole school to do this with me. No matter what, I won’t let them be together.
(Alicia and Chloe exit offstage in separate ways. Emily texts Diana but the text can’t be sent. She decides to wait until tomorrow. Emily runs offstage.)
Act I Scene V- “Would You Rather…” On The Way To Riley’s House
(Alicia walks to Riley’s house. Alicia waits by a bush on the way to Riley’s house until Riley and Xavier walk by. When they pass by, Alicia pulls Riley behind the bush to talk to him. Xavier continues to walk, not realizing that Riley isn’t next to him.)
Riley- Hey what the- oh… hey Alicia. How come you left earl-
Alicia- I have a proposition for you.
Riley- Umm…What kind of proposition?
Alicia- I know how none of us cheerleaders want to go out with you right.
Riley- Thanks for rubbing it in.
Alicia- Wait. What if I could get a cheerleader to be your girlfriend?
Riley- I’m listening.
Alicia- If you help me with one little thing, I’ll go out with you.
Riley- Whoa what?
Alicia- Yeah, you heard me. Would you rather waste your time trying to get the cheerleaders or would you rather do one small thing and have the cheer captain be your girlfriend?
Riley- What do I have to do?
Alicia- Just help me break Diana and Sebastian and you’ll be my boyfriend.
Riley- Well I don’t know. I mean it’s a pretty good deal but Sebastian is my friend and he’s finally happy and I-
(Alicia puts her arms around Riley and kisses him.)
Alicia- So yes or no?
Riley- Yes! Definitely yes!
Alicia- Okay. I’ll text you later. And one more thing, let’s just keep this our little secret alright?
Riley- Sure, whatever you want.
Alicia- Okay, bye new boyfriend.
(Alicia walks offstage.)
Riley- Wow… I have a cheerleader girlfriend! Man I can’t wait ‘til I tell Xavier! He’s gonna be SO jealous!
