EXT. THE LARSON DECK - SATURDAY MORNING
Mid June, 1971
Kyle saunters up the steps of the deck and joins David at
the patio table. There is a carafe of coffee and a plate of
freshly baked muffins. There are several clean mugs, and
Kyle helps himself to the coffee.
I see you're deep into the Police
Procedures manual. What's up?
I have to give testimony in a car
Lucky you. I don't have to deal
with that crap, at least not
until they open a night court.
What exactly do you do on the
You're friendly, what bear bit
Sorry, it's just that I hate
taking the stand. The defence
lawyers make me feel like I'm the
criminal, and not just a witness
for the Crown.
Emily cuts across the lawn from her place and climbs the
deck to take a seat at the patio table. She places her
folded arms on the table, and blurts out.
I need a date for the graduation
Don't look at me, I have better taste in girls!

pester you till you give in.
Fine. I'll go, but you really will
have to teach me to dance. I get
to lead, though.
Laughing happily, Emily calls back over her shoulder as she
hops down the steps.
We'll see! I'll come over with the
record player tomorrow, David.
She skips across the lawn singing.
Now you're in for it. You're not
going to get any peace for the
next two weeks.
Now you're concerned? You're the
one who helped her talk me into
I know. I did that because I'd rather see
her go to the prom with you than that creep,
She broke up with him.
I know, but he's been lurking
around the girls' locker at
school. I went to pick them up
the other day, and of course they
weren't where they were supposed
to be, so I went to their locker.
Joanie was talking to him. She was
probably trying to get rid of him.
I'm just speculating, but what if
Joanie's seeing him?
Joanie? Nah, she has way too much
sense. Emily only went out with
him to make you jealous, and we
both know how well that worked
