*Lucy strolls outside with Yashy in her arms. She’s singing something and smiling while Yashy has her eyes closed in contentment.*
*The angry mob of generic neglected characters suddenly appears behind Lucy, who opens her eyes wide in surprise.*
*The group approaches her like an unstoppable wave.*
Everyone: LUCY, BE MY FRIEND LUCY! I WANNA HANG OUT! ME TOO! HEY!!
*Lucy reels back, angrily blushing.*
Lucy: What the hell do you guys want?!
*Yashy bares her teeth, furious.*
Yashy: SHE’S NOT FOR SALE, ASSHOLES!!
*Five separate hands all point directly at Lucy, who clutches Yashy close. She looks startled.*
*The group closes in on Lucy as she shivers and sweats in fear, still shielding Yashy.*
Lucy: Am I missing something? What could I possibly..
*Lucy glances behind her as Sue comes running up, waving frantically.*
*Lucy turns to Sue and snarls.*
Lucy: GOD WHAT THE HELL IS IT NOW
*Yashy looks quizzical.*
Yashy: Your milkshake brings all the boys to the yard..
*Sue, finally caught up, bends over panting and trying to catch her breath.*
Sue: (gasp) (gasp) P-please.. please just listen.. I’m sorry..
*Lucy looks confused.*
Lucy: For what?
*Sue looks embarrassed.*
Sue: I just.. I’ve been so jealous of your group at lunchtime.. so I made a club to vent about it and it just totally got out of hand..
*Sue looks down.*
Sue: I’m really sorry.. I should have just asked. I’m sorry if I’ve ruined everything.
*Sue looks nervously at Lucy, who looks back at her. Both Lucy and Yashy have blank expressions.*
*Lucy frowns at Sue.*
Lucy: Is that ALL? Geez, nobody cares if you wanna sit at our table. We don’t discriminate or anything.
*Yashy smiles in satisfaction. Sue stares in disbelief.*
Sue: .. Really?!
*Sue looks thrilled and smiles. Lucy walks off in the background, glancing at Sue over her shoulder.*
Lucy: So, um. See you at lunch, I guess?
*Yashy glares back at Sue.*
*Sue spins around to confront the group, who watch on in astonishment. She throws up a victory sign.*
Sue: SO LONG SUCKERS!! HAHAHA
*Sue dashes off after Lucy and Yashy. Girl 1 looks horrified. She puts her hands up to her face.*
Girl 1: So it was that easy for her to stab us in the back?
*Girl 2 looks just as surprised.*
Girl 2: Apparently, yes!
*Girl 3 side-eyes both of them.*
Girl 3: Wow, she’s mean..
*Sue smiles triumphantly as she runs. Sparkles appear around her.*
Sue (thinking): Perhaps I’m mean..
Sue (thinking): .. but now I’ll finally get some time in the spotlight!
*Sue now sits at the lunch table and sips on her juice box while Daisy and Tess look morosely down at the table. Augustus grins nefariously from the background and Abbey frowns in frustration. The words “DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA” fill the panel.*
