4. Scene four

Int. DORM ROOM, NIGHT
Fox is lying on her bed, staring up at the plain ceiling. Her face is expressionless.
There's a soft whisper, and Fox looks over to see the girl across from her (MACKENZIE) smiling shyly. The girl has bright scarlet feathers.
 

MACKENZIE
Hey, I'm Mackenzie. You can call me Kenzie if you want.
Fox stars at her, face expressionless.

 

MACKENZIE
You should get some sleep. Tomorrow is a big day, after all.

 

Fox closes her eyes, and starts to shake, the reality of where she is finally hitting her. Mackenzie's expression instantly becomes concerned.
 

MACKENZIE
Hey, did I upset you? God I'm such an idiot!

 

Fox begins to cry softly. A moment later, Mackenzie stands, coming and sitting on the bed next to her.
 

MACKENZIE
Hey, hey, don't cry! I'm sorry! God I'm so stupid... I must sound like the worst jerk in the world! Here I am, being all positive, and you just got taken out of wherever you were...

 

Fox sits up, still shaking. She wraps her arms around herself, and Mackenzie looks at her worriedly. Finally, Mackenzie puts her arm around Fox, who leans on her like a child.
 

MACKENZIE

Fox interrupts her, her voice barely above a whisper.
 

FOX
No... it's... it's okay. You were just trying to help.

 

Mackenzie begins to pet Fox's head, running her fingers through Fox's hair and over her ears
 

FOX
What are you doing?

 

Mackenzie blushes and stops


MACKENZIE
I'm sorry, it's just... it's something that used to calm Jala when she was upset. We were bunkmates for a while, and I thought since you were a similar kind of animal I might-

 

Fox interrupts Mackenzie's frantic rambling, smiling weakly.
 

FOX
Hey, no, it's okay. I was just surprised. It... it feels nice. You can keep going.

 

Mackenzie goes back to stroking Fox's hair, and begins to hum a wordless lullaby. Fox leans her head against Mackenzie's shoulder, eyes drooping closed.
