INT. - ALBERT HOUSE - JESSICA’S BEDROOM - DAY Flicking through a fashion magazine on her bed is... JESSICA ALBERT, 16 Golden shoulder length hair, curled with every strand. We hear a car pull up on the drive from the open framework. Jessica jumps up from her bed and runs to the window. A man and a woman come from the car. Jessica pulls herself away from the window and leaves her room.

INT. - ALBERT HOUSE - FOYER - DAY As Jessica hits the last step on the staircase, the man and woman, TREVOR, 34 and GLORIA ALBERT, 30 enter through the front door. GLORIA Hey sleepy head. Gloria walks up to her daughter, and gives her a kiss on her forehead. TREVOUR Did you make a start on your history paper? Jessica rolls her eyes in guilt. JESSICA No. But, I’ll do it after I come back from the mall. TREVOUR (Intimidating) And who is accompanying you to the “mall”. JESSICA Megan and Matthew. Why?

TREVOUR You know how I feel about them. They are a bad influence on you. JESSICA Bad influence? Wow, you’re are such a hypocrite. GLORIA Jessica. Jessica What? You’re defending him? All he is doing is causing problems for us. GLORIA You’re father is going through a tough patch lately andJESISCA That’s what you’re calling it? “A tough patch?” Oh my god, you’re just as bad as him. Jessica grabs her coat off a hat stand and walks past her father when he grabs her arm. TREVOUR (Loosing temper) Listen you’re not going anywhere. Now get up them stairs orJESSICA What? What more could you possible do to cause me more pain? Jessica stares into her fathers eyes. They freeze for a second until he loosens his grip and walks away sulking. Gloria follows her husband, leaving Jessica alone. Biting her lip, Jessica exits through the front door slamming it shut.
