Tuesday, July 3rd, 5:00pm
Morag (and Zoey)

 

Morag sits at the window. Zoey takes the seat beside her.

Morag: (pulls headphones out of her ears) Man, that was a good book.

Zoey: Cool. Which one were you listening to?

Morag: Oh, I was listening to music.

Zoey stares at her.

Morag: I was just reading the last Harry Potter book to myself. I have them all memorized.

Zoey: Wow. You must have read them a lot of times.

Morag: Oh yeah. Did you know Dumbledore killed Snape in the last book?

Zoey: No …

Morag: Oh, I’m sorry. I should have said “spoiler alert.”

Zoey: But even if it were true, it’s not in the last book.

Morag: (frowns) Look, lady, do you have the books memorized?

Zoey: No, but …

Morag: I rest my case.

Oliver (and Zoey)

 

Oliver sits at the window. Zoey takes the seat beside him.

Oliver: Forty-three, forty-four, forty-five.

The bus stops at a traffic light and Oliver stops counting.

Oliver: (to Zoey) I’m counting street lights.

Zoey: Oh.

Oliver: (as the bus starts again) Forty-six, forty-seven, forty-eight, forty-nine, fifty, fifty-one, fifty-two.

The bus stops to pick up a passenger and Oliver stops counting.

Zoey: Why are you counting street lights?

Oliver: Because I have to go back the other way when it’s dark, and I need to know when to get off.

Zoey: What if one of the street lights is out?

Oliver stares at her.

Zoey: You might not see it.

The bus starts up again.

Oliver: (panicked) Where was I? Quick!

Zoey: You counted fifty-two.

Oliver: Fifty-three, fifty-four, fifty-five …
