"Yeah it's funny cuz you're looking-" Mary is interrupted by the TV
"I love you so much Joey and you are totally kissable," the 11 year old Mary on TV kisses the magazine. "This is for you" she starts dancing.
"This can't be happening," says Mary
"Is that you?" asks Joey
Mary goes to run past him.
"It's ok," says Joey
"How can it be ok I just been humiliated in front the whole school," says Mary
Mary runs off.
Tami and Dustin come over and the party carries on with Natalie looking at Joey as she makes her way over to him.
"Go after her," says Tami "Door round the side of the house," she adds
Joey runs out just as Natalie gets up to them.
Joey knocks on the door.
"Go away," cries Mary from inside her room
"Mary," says Joey knocking again
"Go away Joey," cries Mary
He keeps knocking until she opens the door.
"Go away," she says the tears still steaming down her face.
Joey cautiously moves his hand up to her cheek and slowly brushes the tears away with the pad of his thumb. However when the tears continue to stream Joey pulls her against his chest wrapping his arms around her waist and she cries against him.
"Let go," Mary mumbles against Joey's chest
"Not until I know your going to be ok," says Joey
"I'm fine I've been humiliated before," says Mary
"They've done that before?" asks Joey
Mary looks up at him.
"Not that exactly but they have had drinks poured on me at school or me tripped over name calling oh and once that got the guy to ask me out and then stand me up," recalls Mary
"There jealous you're a better dancer they are," says Joey
"I don't dance," says Mary
"Pull the other one," says Joey
Mary still feigns the looks of innocent, "I don't," she argues
"You danced with at the ball and you were wearing that dress," says Joey pointing at the red dress hanging on Mary's wardrobe door.
"You tried to tell me at school to and I blew you off," says Joey
"It's ok, that was um what I was going to tell the twins found and said if I told you they'd show that to the school," says Mary
"So do you really think I'm totally kissable?" asks Joey
Mary blushes. "I was 11 I didn't no," stutters Mary
"Well let's see if you do think that," whispers Joey
Joey slides one arm around Mary's waist, pulls her closer and with his free arm tilts her chin up. He ducks his head to hers. Mary closes her eyes waiting for the impact of Joey soft lips on hers and…..
"MARY," shouts Dominique
"I have to get back in there if I don't I'm dead," says Mary
Joey nods. "I'll follow you in, in a minute," says Joey
Mary nods and goes back to the party to finish serving crab cakes.
