Where have you been?


You lost your boot.

It's my only pair.

Your turn.

No way.


Forget it.

Are you afraid?

Come on. I won't laugh.

I got to go.

Who cares about|a stupid rope swing anyway?

What's your real name?

I like Ivy.

It sort of gives me the chance|to start over.

It's so beautiful.

Where did you get it?

From my dad.

He must really love you.

He also feels guilty.

I was adopted.

My biological father was black.|You can tell by my hair.

My mom is my real mom...

but when Darryl married her...

he adopted me.

I'm pretty sure|it was to make her happy.

I think|he really cares about you.

My dad didn't want me|anywhere around.

He'd get pissed if you|tried to talk to him.

He'd throw stuff at me,|like food or spitballs.

Your dad read "Hustler"?

I don't think so.

One day I went through his room,|and I found all this stuff.

He had, like,|five hundred magazines...

of the kind with the chicks|and the high heels...

like they look like|they're ready for a... exam.

Sordid. Come on.

I bet that's why|you look so sexy...

so that your dad|would notice you.

Thank you, Doctor.

Did it work?

He left anyway.

I tried to commit suicide once.|See?

- Where?|- There.

Used to be a lot worse.

Is my hair thing covered up?

Yeah. Why?

My parents.

I tried to convince them|it was female pattern balding...

that my hair fell out|in the shape of an eye...

but I don't think|they really bought it.

It's too big.|You can never find anyone.

How you getting home?


Not everybody gets to go home|in a Mercedes.

Maybe I'll see you around.

I don't really have|many friends.

Me, neither.

Well, yeah, any friends.

Yeah. Everybody hates me.

Everybody hates me, too.

Do you want to come over?
