Ext. Day

GypsyValedor7 - on 12/28/2010

Zoey walks down a snowy city street. She is cold and looks depressed. A woman appears in front of her. She is dressed in plain clothing and does not notice the cold.

(Sternly) Young lady, what are you doing walking about in this weather? You'll catch your death!

If I sit I'll be colder. Have to move. Keep the blood flowing.

Cynthia

The moving isn't my problem. It's the being outside in the first place!

zoey

I am NOT going to a shelter. No way. I can do this myself. All I need is a few more days to...to...

She looks down, confused and ashamed that she doesn't have a plan.

Cynthia

To what? Continue walking around hoping someone takes pity on you? Did I really raise you to be a free-loading bum? I thought you we're better than that Tabitha.

zoey (CONT'D)

Anyway, where else am I supposed to go?

GypsyValedor7 - on 12/28/2010

Cynthia

Really Tabitha, must I do everything?

GypsyValedor7 - on 12/28/2010

Zoey looks ashamed.

GypsyValedor7 - on 12/28/2010

Cynthia (CONT'D)

Look, there is a hospital right up the street. They have food and empty beds I'm sure. Just say you're waiting for some relative to come out of surgery or something.

Zoey nods, wiping away her tears.

zoey

Okay. I will.

Cynthia

Now I don' want to have to do this again young lady. You need to grow up and solve your own problems sooner or later.

GypsyValedor7 - on 12/28/2010

zoey

I know mom. And I try, I do but it's hard sometimes with you and dad gone and Anthony...
