Sawyer

Okay, I'm ready.

Lydia.

You know you really should get your own car, and then you can be as late as you want.

Sawyer.

Yes, but I've already mastered the art of bumming rides off of everyone else. You look very cute by the way cous very lady like.

Lydia.

Tina (V.O.)

Boys! Your breakfast is ready.

Tina stood at her kitchen counter as she placed two plates of bacon and eggs side by side, and then poured two glasses of orange juice. Her twin boys quickly descended the stairs. Two non-identical twin’s walks down stairs they both are very good looking think Luke Perry and Jason Priestley in 90210.

Jude opens the fridge door. Studies its contents. Jude is not domestic. He never will be.

 

Jude.

This is great mom.

Tina.

She’s talking to Dylan who just walked in. Goes straight for

The fridge. Pours a cup of milk.

Dylan.

Jude.

Realizing) shouldn’t you boys be getting to school?

The boy’s gives there mother an odd look. A look of concern.

Dylan.

Dylan snatches the keys off the counter and runs out the door. Jude grabbed his own backpack and quickly followed after him.

Dylan and Jude exit the back door.

Purse, finds some cash on the table with letter that reads: "here are some money for lunch DAD” jenny is very sad that none here parent’s are here but she used to it by now, she has been ignored by here dad since he got divorced from jenny’s mother. As jenny is reading the letter she hears the sound of car and runs out. 

 

EXT. FAIRVIEW/INT. CAR - MORNING

A small North Carolina town. Quaint, picturesque. A place you’d

Like to raise a family. Southern in its hospitality, northern in its attitude. A car makes its way past Main Street. Mom and Pop. A

Couple restaurants. A hardware store. A church.

Jenny rides beside boyfriend Johnny

Johnny.

How you doing beautiful?

(As he leaned over and gave her a quick kiss)

Jenny.

Good morning handsome.

Johnny.

How was your night?

Jenny.

Pretty boring, I spent most of the night making flyers for cheers tryouts later this week.

(She pulls out a stack of papers from her backpack and shows Johnny)

Johnny.

Those are really good babe, but how many more cheerleaders do you need?

Jenny.

At least two, Becky and Jules quit because they didn't want to work with Casey. She can be a piece of work sometimes.

Johnny.

Then why not just kick her off the team, I mean you are the captain, right?"

Jenny.

Believe me, I've thought about it, but if we want to win the tournaments we need her, and besides, she is my best friend.

Johnny.

Whatever you say babe, I just can't wait to see you jump around in your little uniform. (While he smirking)

Jenny.

God Johnny, you are such a boy.

Johnny.

Guilty?

Jenny laughs and smacks him lightly on the arm and pulls here in and gives here a long kiss.

Johnny turns the radio on. HITS the gas and they’re off.

The End
