♫ Suggested Soundtrack: Taylor Swift – Tied Together With a Smile
Scarlett: It’s so sunny today…
Sam: It’s always sunny in here. You should be used to it, Scarlett! You’ve lived here for a lot longer. *laughs* This is the sunniest part of the country after all.
Scarlett: I know, but today feels even sunnier… Anyway, you ready?
Sam: I am, but are you? *laughs* That’s a better question…
Scarlett: Yeah, completely!
Sam: You sure? Last week’s been pretty tough.
Scarlett: I’ve been taking my fluoxetine pills and I’ve also been talking with Mrs. Simmons almost every day. We’re taking it slow but I really don’t think I should be staying out of school for a lot longer. I’ve been through this before, Sam, and last time I didn’t have you to help me out.
Sam: Then I agree! It’s going to be hard at school today, I’m sure, but I’ll be there right beside you. If those dumb girls just try to do anything…
Scarlett: I don’t need you to fight that fight for me, Sam. You’ve done more than enough.
Sam: Oh, I’ve done nothing. I just listened.
Scarlett: Don’t… You were the only one who didn’t give up on me that night, no matter how hard I tried to make you leave. You saw that I wasn’t okay and it didn’t matter to you that we weren’t friends or anything really, you just didn’t let me push you away. I was in a really bad place and I just needed someone to help me pull through even though I couldn’t admit it then. Who would have guessed you would be the one to do it, though… *laughs*
Sam: It’s all behind us now, Scarlett. I understand you a lot more now, especially since you really, really opened up to me that night and I can’t really hold any of your old behavior against you. Everyone deserves a second chance. I would probably be somewhere in a ditch now if grandma didn’t do the similar thing for me. She helped me out so much when she organized for me to live here with you guys. I became a new person in this city.
Scarlett: Thank you, Sam! I’m really glad we’re okay now. *sniffles*
Sam: We’re more than okay, Scarlett.
♫ Suggested Soundtrack: The Dandy Warhols – We Used to be Friends
Sam: You okay?
Scarlett: I’m fine, Sam. I used to rule this school, there was always someone talking behind my back. Are you okay?
Sam: Why wouldn’t I be?
Scarlett: Because of Michael? You guys are still ignoring each other, I see?
Sam: It’s… complicated.
Scarlett: It’s really not. You just have to…
Jennifer: Oh, look who we have here. I heard you died.
Scarlett: Interrupting is rude, Jennifer. And nope, I’m still alive.
Scarlett: The only unfortunate thing in here, Jennifer, is that hilariously awful nose job. If that accident can even be called a nose job. I always wondered how much they charged you for it.
Jennifer: I never had a…
Scarlett: Oh come on, you’re going to pull that one on me? A little respect, please. Everybody knows, or at least suspects about your nose job. *laughs* We’ve been so-called friends for way too long, Jennifer. And honestly, since I don’t care about your opinion anymore and you can’t scare me, I don’t have to worry about hurting your feelings.
Jennifer: Well, fine. If you want to know, it was done by the best surgeon in the country. So, there you have it.
Scarlett: I would’ve sued him. But then again, maybe you wanted to go for that clownish look. Anyway, I really shouldn’t and don’t care. Move, I have to get to class.
Sam: Daaamn. What was that?! *laughs*
Scarlett: I still have a lot of b*tch left in me, Sam. I’m just going to be a b*tch to the people who deserve it from now on. And I’ve told you, you can leave the mean girls to me. I know how to fight those fights. *laughs*
Sam: I’m just happy you didn’t get slapped. *laughs*
Scarlett: I was walking on a thin line, weren’t I?
Sam: Definitely! *laughs* She was as red as you can get.
Scarlett: Excellent. *laughs*
Jennifer: I know I told you to f*ck off last week, but meet me after school tonight. I’m only giving you one more shot because I want her ruined, Hannah. *yells* I want her ruined and you better have something worthy for me!
Dylan: You, gorgeous ladies, owe me sooo much! *laughs*
Scarlett: What are you going on about, nitwit?
Dylan: Oh, a nitwit? You wouldn’t talk like that to me if you know what I just did!
Scarlett: Fine, spill.
Dylan: Well, Hannah somehow managed to tape your sister and that moron who lives in my house having sex last week…
Sam: Wait what?!
Dylan: Wait, that’s not all. She edited the video with pictures of Scarlett and him when they were kids and she also put pictures of Chris and Scarlett in there and pictures of Sam and Chris too… Basically it was a slideshow video with bits of that sex tape included. And it was all made as something which was supposed to show how every guy Scarlett likes ends up falling for someone else or something…
Scarlett: I don’t understand…
Dylan: Jennifer called Hannah today and told her to give her the thing she has on you. Hannah made the video a while ago but Jennifer didn’t want to talk to her then. Anyway, I didn’t want to do anything about it then since Hannah wouldn’t release it without Jenn’s consent. However, she was all hyped up about it today after our quickie during the lunch break and told me how Jenn called her and how she hopes the video will ruin Scarlett and get her on Jenn’s good side again.
Sam: What an awful thing to do!? And why put Jade and Michael’s video in there?
Dylan: Well, Jade was like the most popular girl in here when we were freshmen. She basically made Jennifer. This way Jennifer would both ruin Jade’s legacy and Scarlett too. Or so she thought…
Dylan: I did manage to steal her phone and delete the video from the phone and also from her cloud storage, though. *laughs*
Scarlett: Oh my god, really?!
Dylan: Yeah, of course, my little angels! I know, I know… I’m the best. It has Chris in there too and anything that might hurt Chris, or his girl or girls or whatever the deal with you guys is now, is not something I want to see. Even if it means I have to break things off with my sex muse and betray her like this.
Sam: Okay you just went back from savior Dylan to disgusting Dylan.
Dylan: Say what you want, but you girls love me and you know it! *laughs*
Scarlett: Thank you, Dylan! How can we ever pay you back for this?
Dylan: Well, I am looking for a new sex muse…
Sam and Scarlett: Forget it! *laughs*
Dylan: I had to give it a shot! *laughs* You can treat me to a bottle of Jack on Saturday and we’re even. Deal?
Dylan: I just wish I could see Hannah’s face when she shows up without a phone and Jenn loses it! *laughs*
