Scene: 4

(INT. SCHOOL CLASSROOM - AFTERNOON)

SOUND: MUTED CLASSROOM CHATTER AND LAUGHTER.

TRISH:

Chris Brown's choong, and he's our age. Where's the problem?

DANIELLE:

He just looks a little too immature for me.

MIKI:

What are you on about? He's older than you.

DANIELLE:

He looks younger to be honest.

TRISH:

Alright so he's got a baby face. I'd still go out with him.

MIKI:

Yeah, for the money money.

TRISH:

Obviously. What else for?

DANIELLE:

For the personality?

MIKI:

Nah, mate.

SOUND: GIRLS VOICES CAN BE HEARD TALKING QUIETLY.

TRISH:

I don't know him. How can I go on personality if I've never met the bruddah.

DANIELLE:

True. (Pause) Oh shit, have you been listening to anything Miss Bennett's been saying?

TRISH:

Yeah, I done the exercises from time.

MIKI:

Me too. Question 8 what hard though, not gonna lie. Vectors still piss me off.

DANIELLE:

Vectors? What the fuck are those?

MIKI:

You don't know what Vectors are? How are you even in this set?

SOUND: DANIELLE LAUGHS.

DANIELLE:

I dunno. Good behaviour?

SOUND: ALL THREE GIRLS LAUGH

TRISH:

You are so getting a D mate, trus'.

SOUND: TALKING GIRLS GET LOUDER.

SHANNON:

Apparently she fucked a year 12 boy as well.

JANICE:

Shit!

AMY:

Bloody hell!

TRISH:

Hold up, hold up. What? Who fucked a year 12 boy, Shan?

SHANNON:

Haven't you heard? Some year 9 sket got pregnant.

MIKI:

What the fuck?

DANIELLE:

Eugh. That's nasty man.

TRISH:

Wait, a girl in year 9? Year 9? Are you sure?

JANICE:

Yeah, man that's what everyone's saying, innit.

SOUND: HIGH HEELED FOOTSTEPS.

TRISH:

Fucking hell. That is beyond dutty. What little girl aspires to be some pregnant bitch by year 9? What the fuck is this world coming to?

MISS BENNETT:

Excuse me. Get on with your work, ladies, and stop swearing in my classroom.

TRISH:

Sorry Miss. But some dutty year 9 girl got pregnant, and if that aint cause to swear then I don't know what is.

MISS BENNETT:

I don't want to hear any excuses as to why you're not doing your work. If you've finished, I suggest you do the extension page. Get on with it.

SOUND: MISS BENNETT WALKING AWAY. MUTTERED CONVERSATION ENSUES, GRADUALLY GETTING LOUDER AS MISS BENNER WALKS FURTHER AWAY.

SHANNON:

Jheez, tight bitch.

MIKI:

She wears the ugliest clothes, swear down.

AMY:

Who dresses like that, really though? Have you seen anyone on the street looking like that?

DANIELLE:

Nah, man that's a one-time thing.

JANICE:

And allow the lipstick on the teeth. Doesn't this woman carry a mirror?

TRISH:

I feel sorry for her, man. She probably doesn't have a husband.

(PAUSE)

TRISH:

Anyway. This year 9 bitch... what was her name?

SHANNON:

Riah

JANICE:

Nah wasn't it Louise?

AMY:

No, no. I heard it was Maddie.

SOUND: SUDDEN OUTBURSTS OF FEMALE VOICES.

GIRL 1:

Nah mate, I was that girl Tamoy.

GIRL 2:

It was Nishi.

GIRL 3:

I swear down, I heard someone say her name was Daisy.

GIRL 4:

Imogen!

IMOGEN 2:

What?

GIRL 4:

No not you. That pregnant year 9 girl!

GIRL 5:

I heard it was actually a girl in our year!

SOUND: MISS BENNETT SIGHS AND SLAMS DOWN HER BOOK, INTERRUPTING THE OUTBURSTS OF VOICES.

MISS BENNETT:

It was Layla, alright. Now get back to work - all of you!

FIN.
