Scene 2

(Lights up. Setting is TOFFEE's bedroom. TOFFEE is doing homework, but is obviously distracted. There's a knock at her door.)

TOFFEE
Come in! (CANDY, COCO and GINGER enter and go to her.)

GIRLS
Hi Toffee.

TOFFEE
What are you all doing here?

COCO
We just came to see you. The four of us haven't hung out together in a long time.

CANDY
We just want to talk.

TOFFEE
(Closing her school book...) Okay, what about?

GINGER
Why have you been acting so weird lately? (CANDY and COCO scold her for being so blunt. TOFFEE shifts nervously.)

TOFFEE
O-oh, um...ha-have I? I'm sorry. I-I didn't mean to, I guess-

CANDY
Toffee, we're your best friends. Whatever's troubling you, you can tell us.

(TOFFEE looks at all three of them and they give her encouraging looks.)

TOFFEE
(Takes a deep breath then says...) I have a secret. And if I tell you, you need to swear, swear on Dick Clark himself, that you won't tell anyone! It could ruin my reputation forever if word got out.

GINGER
(A little freaked) What is it?

TOFFEE
Swear!

GIRLS
We swear!

TOFFEE
And most important, you absolutely cannot utter a single syllable to Jonny. (The girls exchange glances.) If he found out, he might leave me for good and I cannot let that happen!

GIRLS
What are you talking about Toffee?

[Jonny Don't Go]
TOFFEE
THREE WEEKS AGO I FOUND OUT SOME NEWS
AND THIS NEWS REALLY GAVE ME THE BLUES
I SAID NO WAY, THIS CAN'T BE TRUE
THIS IS A DREAM THAT SCARES ME THROUGH AND THROUGH

THREE WEEKS AGO I BROKE DOWN AND CRIED
FOR THREE WEEKS TO JONNY NOW I'VE LIED
DEEP DOWN I PRAY THAT HE WON'T HATE ME
WHEN THE TRUTH COMES OUT, JUST WHAT'S GOING ON WITH ME

BUT FOR NOW-
DON'T SAY A WORD TO MY BOYFRIEND GIRLS!
DON'T SAY A WORD TO MY BOYFRIEND GIRLS!
I KNOW HE'S WORRIED BUT YOU PROMISED ME
SWEAR ON YOUR SOULS THAT YOU WON'T SAY A WORD

COCO
But Toff, whatever this secret of yours is, it can't be bad enough to make Jonny leave you.

CANDY
He loves you too much. He came back from the grave for you!

TOFFEE
You girls don't understand. There's no way he'd be able to handle it and I know he'd be done with me in a second. I lost him once and there's no way it's happening again. So you need to promise!

TOFFEE
THREE WEEKS AGO THERE'S SOMETHING THAT CHANGED
AND TRUST ME IT'S WAY BEYOND STRANGE
AND NOW IT'S TIME, I START TO TALK
BUT IF JONNY FINDS OUT, I KNOW HE WILL WALK

DON'T SAY A WORD TO MY BOYFRIEND GIRLS!
DON'T SAY A WORD TO MY BOYFRIEND GIRLS!
I KNOW HE'S WORRIED BUT YOU PROMISED ME
SWEAR ON YOUR SOULS THAT YOU WON'T SAY-

DON'T SAY A WORD TO MY BOYFRIEND GIRLS!
DON'T SAY A WORD TO MY BOYFRIEND GIRLS!
I KNOW HE'S WORRIED BUT YOU PROMISED ME
SWEAR ON YOUR SOULS THAT YOU WON'T SAY A WORD

DON'T SAY (3X)

DON'T SAY A WORD (3X)

TOFFEE
So, will you promise not to tell him? (The girls nod. TOFFEE takes another deep breath and says...) Okay...Girls, there's something important I need to tell you. (Blackout.)
