Two Blue Lines

by Takiyah Douglas

Becky: (Screams) Mom!



(Two figures exit a brick building and head towards the parking lot. They get into a 2003 Volvo and drive off.)

Jay: That assembly was just a waste of time for us all today.

Becky: I agree. That guest speaker went on and on. Pretty boring if you ask me.


Jay: So…Are you okay with going back to my place?

Becky: (Nods) Yeah.

Jay: (Pause) Cool.

They arrive to Jay’s house and get out of the car. Jay takes Becky by the hand and leads her through the front door.

Becky: (Looks around) I like your home Mr. Chairman. It’s-

Jay: Please. We aren’t in school Becky. Plus. (Pause) It’s a bit…

Becky: Oh yeah. Totally. Sorry.

(Awkward silence)

Jay: You looked really cute in that skirt the other day. I really wanted to give you a detention. (Moves closer to Becky)

Becky: (Nervously) Ha ha. I see.

Jay: (Strokes Becky’s hair) I love you.

Becky: (Mumbles) I love you too.

Jay starts kissing Becky gently before things move towards a steamy makeout session. A small noise is heard behind them and they both turn around.

Jay: Janet!

Becky: Mom?!

Janet: Becky!

Jay: Mom?!

Janet: What the hell is this sick shit?! (Crying) What the fuck?! I’m calling the police!

Becky: No! I love him!

Janet: (Slaps Becky) Shut your mouth! I don’t want to hear a word from you!

Jay: Baby, I can explain!

Janet: No you can’t you fucking scumbag! You were about to fuck a child! My daughter at that!

Jay: But Janet- (Moves forward and steps on something) Jay bends down and picks up the object in front of him. His eyes widen.

Janet: I can’t believe you Jay! (Sobs) My own daughter!

Becky: Mom! He really loves me though! Please understand!

Janet: No Becky! I don’t even think I can love you, my daughter, anymore! (Runs out the door and into the street)

Becky: Mom!


Both Jay and Becky bolt out the house, the slim white object forgotten on the floor. Two blue lines, faint at first, start appearing on the stick.
