*Mike sits on his couch changing TV channels. He looks bored.*
Mike (thinking): One last weekend before school on Monday.. I really should be making the most of it.
*Blur triumphantly holds an Uno card up.*
Blur: And with this card..
*Blur places the card on a pile. Yashy and Lily are playing as well.*
Blur: I change the color to red and say “UNO!”
*Yashy is upset. Lily is unimpressed.*
Yashy: Screw you, Blur!!
*Lily smiles innocently and holds out a card.*
Lily: You didn’t account for my final card, Blurry-dear. Wild, draw four!
Lily: Haha! Better luck next time!
*Lily begins walking away from an angry Blur and Yashy.*
Blur: GO AWAY HEDGEHOG!!
Yashy: YOU SUCK!!
*Lily leans over the couch to talk to Mike. She has a sly smile.*
Lily: They’re so funny.
Mike: Ahh, hi, Lily.
Lily: Anything good on?
*Mike looks back to the TV, bored.*
Mike: Just the news.
*Lily smiles, mocking him.*
Lily: The depths you’ve sunk to!
*Mike looks offended.*
Mike: For your information, they’re broadcasting a parade!
*Lily maintains a sarcastic smile.*
Lily: How exciting.
*On the TV, a reporter is standing in front of a crowd.*
Reporter: We’re here LIVE at the annual Pan-European Hospitality Workers’ Parade on this lovely day in Maraschino!
*The reporter turns to a group of young girls.*
Reporter: Tell us! Enjoying the day so far?
Interviewee: Oh! We’re here for something else! An important audition!
Reporter: Ah! I hope you can channel some of this energy!
Interviewee: Thanks! It’s great that our friend who flew all the way out from Rickter can see this kinda thing!
Reporter: Wow! Will your friend be here for tomorrow’s pizza festival?
Interviewee: Oh, I wish!
*Mike stares blankly.*
Lily: She’s pretty.
Interviewee: She’s going back tonight so I guess this is all she’ll have time to see, but we’ll make the most of it!
*Mike leans forward, focusing on the TV.*
Mike: Rickter.. could it..
*Mike’s eyes widens in shock.*
*A girl with black hair is on the TV, smiling.*
Reporter: Enjoy your time in Maraschino! You girls nail that audition, okay?
Mike: T-that was.. That was her, wasn’t it?
Mike: She looked like Sandy!
Lily: .. Are you sure, Michael?
Mike: I know it!
*The broadcast changes over to a news desk.*
Newscaster: Back to you, Ken!
*Mike begins standing up as a worried Lily grips his scarf.*
Mike: Maraschino’s at least an hour away..
Lily: What do you mean?
*Mike stands determined.*
Mike: This is my chance. I have to find her.
