Int - school - morning
The bell rings, signaling the start of class. The halls are empty. Suddenly, Jason, a 17 year old boy runs around the corner carrying his backpack. He turns and enters a classroom.
(Out of breath)
Sorry I'm late Ms. Hansen. I missed the bus.
Easy there Jason, it's alright. Take your seat, we are just getting started.
Jason takes his seat next to his best friend Amanda. She doesn't look up when Jason sits down.
Your late, again.
I miss the bus, what's the big deal?
(Continues to whisper)
The big deal is that you always miss the bus.
I do not!
Ms. Hansen turns and looks at Jason and Amanda.
I'm sorry, am I interrupting your conversation?
The class begins to snicker.
That's enough class! Amanda, Jason, this is your last warning. I do not tolerate talking during my class.
The class falls quiet and the lesson continues.
Ext - schoolyard - afternoon
The final bell rings. Kids begin to pour out the front doors. Jason exits the building closely followed by Amanda.
Want to come over? I'm going to be working on the firebird some more.
Again? You've been working on that thing for months!
There's still a lot more to be done.
What needs to be done still?
Well, The suspension needs to be put in, brakes, turbo radi-
Okay! I get it! Your making my head hurt!
Remind me next time not to. Well, as much as I would love to help, but I just remembered, my parents want me to do some chores when I get home.
Your a terrible lier.
Amanda cracks a smile.
Yeah, I know. I'll see you later.
Amanda walks off to her car. Jason watches her walk off for a second then turns and walks over to his parents silver Honda. He starts up the car and pulls out of the parking lot.
