back around.

As ​BILL​ begins to walk to the ​DEALER 3​, he runs into the Principle
A nervous look sweeps ​BILL’s​ face. ​BILL ​speaks with a shaky voice.

BILL
Oh, hello Principal Harper.

PRINCIPAL HARPER​ looks down at the soda and puts her hand out. ​BILL
understands and hands over the soda. She gives ​BILL ​a water bottle
from her bag in return.
PRINCIPAL HARPER
Hello Bill, Make sure you're eating healthy now!

BILL

DEALER 3​. ​BILL​ immediately takes a seat at the nearest table.
Principal​ proceeds to take out candy from her bag along side the soda
taken from ​BILL​ and hands it over to ​DEALER 3. BILL ​overhears
