The story so far

Chapter 24: Relaxation Time

written by Joie

added on: 21 Feb 2002 - based on characters created by Winnie Holzman

ANGELA looks at BRIAN, studying his face. BRIAN squirms a little under the scrutiny. But ANGELA isn't really thinking about BRIAN. She sighs.

ANGELA: I ... don't know. (Beat) I have to think about it. (ANGELA looks around) Um... do you, like, have anything to eat or anything?

BRIAN's face relaxes, he smiles, and nods, starting towards the kitchen.

BRIAN: Yeah.

ANGELA follows him.

ANGELA: Ugh, I'm sorry to ask, that's like, so *pushy* of me, but I just... (ANGELA looks sheepish) I'm a bit hungry.


ANGELA and BRIAN sit in front of the TV. They're half-watching some show. Several snacks lie around them. They seem relaxed, for once.

BRIAN:... I don't know. It seems like she doesn't even know how to control the class or something, I mean...

ANGELA: I know. What about when James Calvares just walked out of the room, when his mobile went off, and never came back? And she just let him go!

BRIAN: (chuckles) I think she's losing it.

ANGELA nods, drains her glass.

BRIAN: Uh, you want more soda?

ANGELA: Do you mind?

BRIAN: (joking) Yeah. How dare you ask for more soda.

ANGELA hands her glass to BRIAN. He goes into the KITCHEN.

ANGELA (VO): It's nice... just being relaxed, with Brian. I think, in this weird way, finding out... made things easier. It made me see Brian for who he really is. Instead of someone who was always... trying to hide.
