What’s going on Samir? How you been? It’s been a little minute since I’ve seen you.
I’ve been pretty good brother. Good business this way. What about you?
Same. Can’t really complain. You mind if I ask you something? Just a few things that’s been on
my mind lately.
Yeah sure. Go ahead. I’m sure it’s religious questions.
Of course. So how do you feel about how the media and society tries to downplay and mainly

guy’s I have other places to get to. I’ll catch you fellas tomorr 
 Narrator walks out of store and heads toward home.
Curtain closes.)
(Intermission)Act II:
 In this Act the Narrator is walking up his driveway and drinking a soda. He’s been thinking 
about what Samir and Hamid told him back at the store. He hears

Hey, how are you Mr. Frank?
I’m well. Trying to stay God’s path. How is school? I heard you was doing your thing there.
School is great. I can’t really complain. I do what’s required of me plus some. Do you mind if I
ask you something?
