KRYSTYL (CONT’D)

You’re off to bigger and better things

at Penn State! I should be depressed...

School’s not going to be as much fun

without you- I mean, you and the

others around.

ERIC:

Okay, so I’m off to Penn State, but

then what? Krystyl, college is just

four years of limbo between having

fun when you’re young and being thrown

into the corporate world.

Krystyl playfully PUNCHES Eric on his shoulder.

ERIC (CONT’D)

I’m serious! No more senior pranks,

no more playing hooky... no more

adventure.

KRYSTYL:

Eric, you can find adventure anywhere

as long as you still want to!

Eric nods, but does not seem entirely convinced.

ERIC:

I guess so.

KRYSTYL:

God, for a senior, you are so grim.

ERIC:

For a sophomore, you’re way too

enthusiastic.

Krystyl giggles.

A slight pause follows. Krystyl looks uncomfortable.

KRYSTYL:

So, um... any plans for the weekend?

ERIC:

(shrugs)

Yeah, I might work on my car a little.

KRYSTYL:

(let down)

...Oh.

ERIC:

Why?

KRYSTYL:

Well, I don’t know; I figured...

maybe if you weren’t busy or anything,

we could hang out.

ERIC:

Just us, you mean?

KRYSTYL:

Why not? I mean, we only see each

other in our little group of friends.

Let’s get together; just the two of

us. I think you could use the company.

What do you say?

She SMILES, hopeful. Eric thinks it over.

ERIC:

Sure. That does sound like fun.

Why don’t you come over tomorrow?

KRYSTYL:

Yeah! I- I mean, I have lacrosse

practice at ten, so how about I

come by around two or three? You

know, after I make myself a little

prettier-

She catches herself and stops short.

KRYSTYL (CONT’D)

I- I mean, presentable.

Eric smiles and nods.
