Location: Dexter McCarty Middle School, Gresham, Oregon
Leading Lady: Heidi - shy, a little awkward, 7th grade (don't judge me for not being sweet 16)
Leading Man: Kelly - cute, big blue eyes, curly dark blond hair, popular, 8th grade
Scene One: After choir practice in the commons area of the middle school.
Kelly approaches Heidi and boldly asks, "whodda ya like?"
Heidi shyly responds, "I dunno."
Kelly replies (dejectedly), "oh."
Scene Two: After school waiting for the bus Heidi's friends all inform her that Kelly was about to ask her to "go" but then she didn't proclaim her interest in him when asked and so abandoned his true desire and he was feeling sad. Heidi can't believe she missed her chance with the older, more popular boy.
Scene Three: That evening in Heidi's front yard. The sun has just set and the stars are just beginning to show themselves. Heidi looks up to see the first star and thinks, "star light, star bright, first star I see tonight. I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight. I wish that Kelly would ask me who I like again." (this is absolutely 100% true and this is the first time I've ever told anyone about it but now you know, I wish on stars!)
Scene Four: The next day, after choir practice in the commons area again.
Kelly once again approaches Heidi and a little more timidly inquires, "whodda ya like?"
Heidi responds with great confidence and assurance, "YOU!"
Kelly, regaining his confidence blurts out, "you wanna go?"
Heidi (not really knowing what this all means but thrilled at the prospects) proclaims, "YES!"
Scene Five: A few days later after watching a football game Heidi and Kelly are approaching the after-school buses. She will ride one to her home and he will ride another to his. As they approach Heidi's bus (holding hands because, you know, they are "going together), Kelly grabs Heidi's shoulders, turns her around, and kisses her. Right on the lips! Right there in front of two bus loads of 7th and 8th graders! Heidi gets on the bus, sits down, and asks the girl next to her, "did he just kiss me?" and upon receiving an answer in the affirmative whispers airily, "I thought so."
Fade to black
(until a week and a half later when Heidi breaks up with Kelly and ends up "going" with Curtis the brown eyed, dark haired star of the Stake musical.)
