*Daisy beams excitedly, throwing her hands in the air.*
Daisy: Today’s the last field day of the entire year!
Daisy: I’m gonna do my very best to beat all my personal records! Onwards, to a better me!
*Daisy gives a thumbs up to the viewer and winks.*
*Lucy stares blankly ahead, Yashy in her arms.*
Mike: Shuttup, Yashy.
*Mike glares at Yashy. David pumps a fist in the air.*
*Paulo grins with confidence.*
Paulo: Man, I’m gonna kick so much ass today!
*Sue looks weary.*
Sue: You always beat me, Paulo.. You’re merciless.
*Paulo smugly folds his arms.*
Paulo: Hey, s’not my fault I’m so athletic and you’re so--
*Daisy appears in the distance.*
*Paulo senses Daisy overhearing their conversation and freezes.*
*Paulo puts an arm around Sue and points to the sky.*
Paulo: Err.. I mean.. I’m sure if you try your best, you can achieve anything! Just believe in yourself!
*Sue looks irritated.*
*Daisy clasps her hands together, sparkles surrounding her.*
Daisy: So kind~!
*Lucy shrugs, waving a hand in the air.*
Lucy: What’s the point of running with you anyway? You always come first.
Mike: Hey, don’t say that!
*Mike gives an encouraging smile.*
Mike: You always catch up to me! We’ve never had a race where it wasn’t close.
*Lucy is genuinely heartened.*
Lucy: I guess you’re right about that!
Mike: Of course!
Lucy: We’re just as good as each other!
*Mike and Lucy smile pleasantly at each other.*
*The pair continue to placidly smile.*
Mike and Lucy: …
*Mike slyly turns to Lucy.*
Mike: Except.. I always WIN the race.
*Lucy squints at Mike.*
Lucy: .. excuse me?
Mike: .. So we’re not exactly equal competitors..
*Lucy, irked, points at herself.*
Lucy: HEY, I can beat you in ANYTHING you can do!!
*Mike raises an eyebrow and crosses his arms.*
Mike: Even in a sprint?
Lucy: Remember back in fourth grade? I won! And it wasn’t even a challenge!
*Lucy, raising her fists in the air, recalls her younger self who cheers, victorious, as younger Mike looks surprised behind her.*
*Mike, smirking, interrupts Lucy’s recollection.*
Mike: The one where I WALKED the whole way? I let you win that race, Lucy.
*Lucy pauses, shocked and disgusted.*
*Mike and Lucy lean toward each other and begin squabbling.*
Lucy: Why you obnoxious little--
Mike: Obnoxious? Just because I’m faster?
Lucy: I hate you!
Mike: Well I hate you too!
*Yashy appears with a grin.*
Yashy: So you won’t be accepting his seed, Mom?
*Mike and Lucy turn to Yashy, appalled.*
*Mike and Lucy shoot lasers from their eyes, blasting Yashy to the ground.*
Mike and Lucy: AYU BEEM!!
