Over shoulder view of Canvas flipping through mail. He sees a letter from harvard university. he pauses, and immediately drops it into the trash next to a newspaper reading April 2nd, 2012.
Clock reads 5:00. Calender reads October 26, 2011. Canvas starts to collect painting supplies. Hear mom in distance, yelling downstairs
I called you here because I've been talking to some of your other teachers and they've all been saying the same thing, apparently your not doing too well. So what's up? Is everything OK at home or are you just getting lazy or what? I know things have been tough for you since your brother passed away, but that doesn't mean you can just let yourself go. You were a great student Canvas, hard working, and such a natural. It would be a shame to let what you've worked for all these years to slip through your fingers especially now at the very end. So listen, whatever the issue is that's your business and we don't have to talk about it if you don't want to, you've got friends for that. All I'm gonna see is that you have to start putting in the work and I'll try my best to take care of you. Start coming in for extra help and get your grades up because if grades were due tomorrow it would take a miracle on my part to find a way to pass you. So that's all, I'm not gonna lecture you, now get out of my hair.
As Canvas walks away he stares at a mural on the wall of outer space seeming to lose himself in the immensity of it all.
