Anna is already on stage and sitting alone at a two-seat table at a local shop. Entering stage right is Anna's boyfriend, Tyler. The two had been a couple for four months and their relationship had turned into one of those say hi, hug, and go on. The time takes place in modern day of 2006 in a shop much like Starbucks. Tyler is about 16 and Anna is slightly younger at the age of 16. Appearing later on is Kayla, another 16 year old who goes to Tyler's school. Once three best friends, Kayla and Anna got into a fight and no longer remained friends.
Hey Anna… Sorry I'm late.
Its okay Tyler, at least you're here.
He hugs Anna before taking a seat across from her
I would have been here earlier, but… I had to talk… to… Coach Johnson...
I told you, Tyler, its okay!
An uneasy silence falls between the two for a few moments; Tyler is looking off out a window and Anna is watching Tyler, who is also thinking of something to say.Tyler
Anna… we need to talk.
He looks back over at Anna for a second then looks down at the empty tableAnna
Is… is something… wrong?
I'm not sure how to say it…
Tears filling her eyes
Just… just… just say! whatever… it is…
I don't want to hurt you, Anna, but things are just…
Enters ice cream shop happily and skipping
Tyler looks over at Kayla with a smile and Anna has a shocked look on her face, she is beginning to figure out things.Tyler
We're…. We're going to have to… break… up.
She begins to cryTyler
I'm so sorry…
You haven't told her yet?
Kayla stands behind Tyler, wrapping her arms around his shoulders and smiling, unaware of much of what was going onTyler
We just… grew apart… We used to be so close, Anna, long before we became a couple. Now, things just aren't the same.
Looks at Kayla then back to Tyler
It's because of her, isn't it? You're so… so…
Stands up and throws water into Tyler's faceTyler
I said I was sorry, Anna!
Anna, still in tears, drops the glass and goes to run off, but Tyler grabbed her by the arm as he stands up to talk and she tries to run stage left.Anna
Let go of me, Tyler! Just go and… and… love that… girl!
Anna, he said he was sorry. And I do have a name, thank you very much. When I told Tyler that I've loved him since we first met, he was in complete shock. Before I came along… you two were so close. You're just going to let that die?
Yes! Now let go of me!
She gets away from Tyler and runs off left stage, exiting the ice cream shopTyler
I feel bad now… but it's better that I broke it to her, right?
She sits where Anna formerly sat
It could have been much worse… You could have not told her at all.
Sighs and shakes his head a little
I'm just not sure…
The lights fade out as the last two seen on stage is Tyler and Kayla. Tyler's head is left remain downward, hanging in sadness. Kayla just watched Tyler in silence.
