*Mike stomps away from the carnival into the darkened park, still scowling. Daisy chases after him, distraught.*
Daisy: Mikie! Wait! Stop! Mikie!!
*Daisy yells at Mike, upset.*
Daisy: Why are you being so difficult?!
*Mike glares over his shoulder at her.*
Mike: Isn’t it OBVIOUS?! Haven’t you gotten the point after all these years?
*Daisy frowns at him, raising a hand to gesture.*
Daisy: You’ve never even given me a chance, Mikie!
*Daisy smiles coquettishly at Mike, putting a hand on his chest as he frowns disapprovingly.*
Daisy: C’mon, Mikie.. You know I love you.. What have you got to lose..?
*Mike smacks Daisy’s hand off him and turns away, glaring.*
*Daisy scowls petulantly, tucking the bear under her arm.*
Daisy: Oh, c’mon! Sandy, Lucy.. you always sacrificed so much for so little.. You know NEITHER of them deserve you. You need someone who’s HERE for you!
*Mike glowers at her.*
*Daisy smiles meanly, looking down.*
Daisy: Besides, I’m sure Sandy has her honey at home for the times she’s feeling lonely.
*Mike barks angrily in response.*
Mike: WHAT?! Stop talking crap!! You don’t know her!!
*Daisy holds her bear to her chest and looks at Mike with disdain.*
Daisy: Don’t I?
*Daisy recalls her days as Sandy’s friend. A young Sandy and Daisy sit together, smiling, as Daisy holds a paper.*
Daisy (narrating): I was her best friend before you two ever talked.. and she’s exactly the type to look for outside help..
Daisy (narrating): That used to be my role, right up until you came along.
*Continuing her recollection, Daisy recalls Sandy talking to Mike in class. Sandy rests a hand on Mike’s desk, smiling as Mike looks up at her, flustered and anxious. Daisy watches them interact from a distance, confused and dismayed.*
*Mike scowls, exasperated.*
Mike: I OFFERED my help!
*Daisy looks away from Mike and waves a hand dismissively.*
Daisy: So did I.
Mike: So why am I the one she’s still talking to?!
Daisy: She must love the attention!
*Daisy frowns coldly, looking over her shoulder at Mike.*
Daisy: Mikie, she doesn’t deserve you..
*Mike leans forward in irritation.*
Mike: Look, even AFTER I helped her with her work, she spent all her time with me! You’re WRONG!
Daisy: Oh, that’s all so far in the past, now..
*Daisy gazes up at Mike, smiling invitingly. Mike stares at her with wide eyes, scandalized.*
Daisy: Why don’t you embrace what you have here, tonight?
*Daisy smiles sweetly. Her eyes are large and luminous.*
Daisy: I know I’m ready to..
*Mike pulls his wrist out of Daisy’s grip and turns from her. Daisy freezes up and looks irritated.*
*Daisy cries after Mike, holding a fist up as she despairs.*
*Mike spins around. He glares at Daisy furiously, ears down and shoulders tense.*
Mike: Do I have to tell you a MILLION TIMES?!?
