*Mike attempts to open his locker.*
Mike: I heard they have bigger lockers in high school.
Lucy: You don’t say?
Mike: Yeah! I think you can fit a whole body in them!
Lucy: Bullies rejoice.
Mike: How anyone managed to find THAT out is beyond me!
*Mike continues to fiddle with the lock.*
Lucy: Anything is beyond you if you can’t open a stinkin’ locker.
Mike: I’m almost done, shut up.
Mike: There we go!
*Lucy blankly looks at her watch.*
Lucy: Just past 3 minutes. A new record.
*Mike opens his locker, several letters fall out.*
Mike: Ughh. More love letters.
Lucy: Mmm. They smell nice.
Lucy: Open them!
*Mike scowls at Lucy.*
Mike: What?! No! Not in front of you!
Lucy: Why not?
*Mike imagines a faceless, long-haired girl writing.*
Mike: The intent of the letter is for the admired to read it alone..
Mike: This girl’s feelings are very fragile.
*Lucy shrugs dismissively.*
Lucy: Sounds like she’s a real wuss.
Lucy: C’mon, she won’t talk to your stupid face? What a baby.
Mike: I feel bad for her. I’ll have to put these away to read lat--
*Mike notices one of the letters is missing.*
*Lucy begins reading a letter, as Mike angrily turns to her.*
Lucy: Ahaha!! Oh man, get a load of this!
Lucy: ♥ My dear prince. I’ve always admired you from afar.. Resplendent with your gorgeous gaze.. ♥
Lucy: ♥ Those eyes.. the most beautiful eyes I’ve ever seen.. that luminous, emerald green.. priceless jewels my heart aches to peer into, if only.. ♥
Mike: Lucy! Don’t read it out and laugh! What if she’s listening?!
*Lucy waves him off.*
Lucy: Oh, c’mon!
Lucy: What’s even the point of it, then?
*Stacy peeks from around the corner, upset.*
Lucy: She’s probably some kind of basement-dwelling freak. I bet she’s secretive for good reason!
Mike: You’re so mean!
*Stacy begins to tear up.*
