*Paulo and Mike sit at the lunch table. Paulo stares at Mike, horrified.*
Paulo: A DATE?! WITH DAISY?!
*Mike takes a bite of his sandwich. Paulo tweaks Mike’s ear, growling.*
Mike: It’s not a real date! And what do YOU care?!
Paulo: You goddamn cheater!
*Mike glares angrily at Paulo, ears back.*
Mike: I am NOT cheating!
*Paulo glares furiously in return.*
Paulo: I should get you neutered! You’ll RUIN her!
*Mike snickers. He glances back and puts a hand up to his mouth.*
Mike: Ruin her for who..? I wonder if Tess would be interested in your concern..
*Paulo’s eyes go wide.*
*Paulo slams Mike’s head into the table.*
*Daisy appears, worried for Mike.*
*Daisy attends to Mike, who is stunned and foaming at the mouth.*
Daisy: Oh no.. are you okay?
*Paulo keeps yelling, angrily glaring at Mike.*
Paulo: HE shouldn’t be taking you out on a date!
*Daisy glares back, her ears down.*
Daisy: Oh, put a sock in it! You never cared about me before, you don’t have to pretend now!
*Paulo stares at Daisy in shock.*
*Daisy goes back to cradling Mike. She looks at him worriedly.*
*Tess walks up to the lunch table and nudges Paulo in the back. She smiles mischievously at him.*
Tess: Heeey cutie! ♥
*Paulo glances backward, blushing.*
*Tess smiles at Paulo and touches his face. Sparkles and hearts float around the pair.*
Tess: Ready for tonight?
*Paulo grins happily, clenching his fists in anticipation.*
Paulo: Am I ever! ♥
*Paulo looks away, puts his hands behind his head and pouts.*
Paulo: Suits are so dinky, though..
*Tess grins enthusiastically, her hands clasped together.*
Tess: You can be my penguin!
*Abbey and Lucy sit at the lunch table, watching everything unfold. Abbey slumps against the table, resting his head on his hand. Lucy glances at him.*
Lucy: At least one of us has to be depressed at any given time, huh?
Abbey: I’m sorry.
*Abbey looks down, wearily.*
Abbey: How can I criticize others when I couldn’t even cheer Daisy up myself? It’s like she didn’t even need my help..
*Lucy looks away.*
Lucy: I wouldn’t be so sure about that.
*Abbey turns to her in surprise.*
*Lucy tilts her head and looks at Abbey, raising an eyebrow.*
Lucy: I saw her at the mall yesterday. She was talking with that weird older kid. Maybe it’s no coincidence she’s gone and planned some big night with Mike.
*Abbey stares at Lucy, frozen in horror. Beyond him, the bell rings.*
*Abbey spins around to look for Daisy but only sees empty chairs. Students chatter in the background.*
*Abbey gazes into the distance, terrified.*
*Lucy looks thoughtful.*
Lucy: Then again, coulda just been another coat-wearin’ weirdo.
