*Abbey, seated at the lunch table, notices Lucy sipping her drink.*
Abbey: What’s your name?
*Lucy looks at Abbey with a blank expression.*
Lucy: Lucy. Why do you wanna know?
Abbey: Are you feeling alright over there?
*Lucy resumes sipping her drink.*
Lucy: Sure, why wouldn’t I be?
Abbey: You tell me!
*Lucy narrows her eyes.*
Lucy: I did.. and I said I was fine.
Abbey: Doesn’t look like it to me.
Lucy: How would you know?
*Abbey looks troubled.*
Abbey: Goodness, are these girls gloomy or what..
Abbey: Surely I can say something?
*Abbey pats Lucy on the head.*
Abbey: Lucy.. are you also a little insecure?
*Abbey smiles at Lucy while continuing to pet her.*
Abbey: Hiding your feelings won’t solve any problems in the long run, you know. Please, let others take on your burdens.
*Lucy blushes, her eyes wide and cute.*
Lucy: Y-you’re right. I should say something..
*Lucy smacks Abbey and scowls.*
Lucy: Don’t friggin’ touch me.
*Paulo angrily looks down at Abbey, who has collapsed on the ground.*
Paulo: Serves ya right! Only I’M allowed to feel her up!!
*Abbey’s legs twitch in the air.*
Abbey: .. but I wasn’t trying to..
*Abbey, lying on the floor, looks weary.*
Abbey: Oh, never mind..
Abbey: What’s the point..
*Abbey notices Daisy laugh.*
Daisy: Hee hee..
*Abbey stands back up, his eyes lighting up.*
Abbey: Daisy? You’re smiling?
*Daisy puts a hand to her mouth as she laughs.*
Daisy: I’m sorry..
Daisy: I haven’t seen anyone approach Lucy like that in a long while. Don’t take it to heart. That’s just how she is.
Abbey: Well, okay.. but are you alright?
*Daisy waves her hand.*
Daisy: I’m feeling a bit better now, yeah..
*Abbey and Daisy smile at each other.*
Daisy: Thanks for all your concern, Abbey..
Abbey: Oh, it was my pleasure!
David: Pshwhoo! Pshwhoo!
*Abbey looks irritated.*
*Abbey, furious, turns towards David.*
Abbey: GO AWAY!!
*David points another finger gun at Abbey.*
David: But I’m John Wilkes Booth, Mr. President!
David: With a laser gun!
