Act II Scene III- “A Dozen Roses”- School Lunchroom
(Diana is sitting alone eating breakfast. Sebastian walks in carrying a dozen red roses. He kisses Diana to distract her while he puts the roses down next to her bag. Diana puts her arms around Sebastian’s neck to pull him closer. Sebastian runs 1 of his hands through her hair. The bell rings and they stop kissing. Diana reaches for her bag.)
Diana- Well we need to go to cla- oh my gosh. These roses are so beautiful!
Sebastian- I picked them out for you. You love them?
Diana- Hell yea!
(Diana jumps to Sebastian and they both fall on the floor kissing for 5 seconds)
Diana- We’re going to be late.
Sebastian- That doesn’t matter right now. All that matters is that we are so much in love with each other.
Diana- Aww. But still, we have to go.
Sebastian- Fine. Let’s go.
(They both get up from the floor)
Diana- I love you so much.
Sebastian- I love you too. Now let’s go to class before they send the teacher in after us.
(Drama teacher walks in)
Drama Teacher- Too late Romeo and Juliet. Let’s go to class before I mark you both tardy.
Diana- Told you.
Sebastian- Well I’m sorry I didn’t listen.
Drama Teacher- Let’s go.
(Everyone starts walking into the halls. Diana grabs Sebastian’s hand and pulls him all the way to the drama class. They sit down and the Drama teacher begins teaching. Diana turns to Emily.)
Diana- Hey Emily. Why didn’t you go to my house yesterday?
Emily- Alicia said that you weren’t home.
Diana- I was home all afternoon. Why would she say that?
Emily- I need to talk to you about Alicia. It’s really important.
Diana- Well tell me.
(Alicia [right next to Diana] turns and looks at them)
Alicia- What you 2 talking about?
Emily- Umm, nothing.
Alicia- That’s what I thought. (Alicia turns back around and whispers to herself.) That’s exactly what I thought.
(Diana and Emily begin whispering to each other)
Diana- Alicia’s acting a little strange today isn’t she?
Emily- Diana, listen to me. Take my phone and listen to this recording I got yesterday from Chloe.
Diana- Hey, where is Chloe anyways?
Emily- Just listen to the recording. You’ll find out everything you need to know.
Diana- (Takes the phone) Uh, alright then.
Drama Teacher- Emily, Diana? Anything you need to share with the rest of us?
Drama Teacher- Okay then. Pay attention to the lecture.
(Alicia laughs. Sebastian turns to her.)
Sebastian- I don’t see how that’s funny at all.
Alicia- Of course you don’t. Because you’re blind.
Sebastian- Why you say that?
Alicia- ‘Cause you’re going out with her.
Sebastian- You got a prob with me dating your sister?
(Alicia gets up angrily and yells at Sebastian)
Alicia- Why doesn’t anyone in this school understand that me and Diana are STEP sisters! STEP sisters! Got that!
(Alicia grabs her things angrily and storms out of the classroom and slams the door.)
Drama Teacher- Well let me just call security to find her and take her to the counselor.
(The Drama Teacher walks to her phone and dials)
Sebastian- Damn. She’s angry.
Diana- Just let her cool off. I’ll talk to her later.
Emily- You sure that’ll be the best thing to do?
Diana- Umm... not really. But what else can I do?
Sebastian- Leave it to me. I’ll talk to her later.
Diana- You sure? You don’t have to.
Sebastian- Don’t worry. I can handle anything she has to throw at me.
Diana- Okay. Be careful alright?
Sebastian- What could possibly happen?
Diana- You never know.
(Everyone turns back to the teacher. Fade out.)
