Kathleen: Oh there you are, I been looking for you. *hugs kim* 

Kim: *fakes a smile* Hi mom. 

Kathleen: I can't believe you graduated. It was just like yesterday when you first went to head start. 

Kim: *chuckles* Time sure has flown by a lot mom.  

Kathleen: So, where do you want to go? 

Kim: I actually was gonna hang out with Harry and his mom. 

Kathleen: Oh? Well... *fakes a smile* That's fine too. 

Harry: Oh actually, my mom wanted to talk to me alone when we get home. 

Kim: Oh, that's fine. Mom, let's go grab something to eat.

Harry: Ok. *leaves with anne* 

Kathleen: So, what do you plan on doing in the fall? 

Kim: Mom, Harry and I both got accepted to UCLA. 

Kathleen: I heard, congrats. 

Kim: Thanks.  

Kathleen: So I guess you won't need me anymore huh? 

Kim: Mom, you're always here and there. I don't blame you because of your career. I understand that what you work for is a big thing. I would love to be an assistant for the governor someday just like you mom. I bet getting out of it to come to my graduation was not easy, but here or not, I know you're proud of me mom.  

Kathleen: It's just that you're all I have left and I'm always away from you. I feel bad and... I just wish I could have gotten the chance to see you grow up.  

Kim: *tries not to cry* Mom, I'm more grown than you ever think. I can cook for myself, I can clean, I can take care of myself. Mom, I been alone for almost my whole life! 

Kathleen: *cries* I'm so sorry honey. 

Kim: *holds in her tears* Please don't cry. 

Kathleen: I'm sorry. *wipes her tears* 

Harry: So what is it that you wanted to talk to me about? 

Anne: *stands in silence* 

Harry: *chuckles* What mom? 

Anne: I made an arrange marriage for you. 

Harry: *shocked* I'm... What? I'm sorry, I didn't hear you clear, what'd you say? 

Anne: Harry, I arranged a wedding for you. 

Harry: *chuckles* Mom, I'm not marrying anyone, but Kim, only after college. 

Anne: You're getting married this Summer to one of my friends daughter. 

Harry: *kinda upset* Mom, I'm not marrying no one, especially someone I don't know. 

Anne: You know her, her name is Daphne. 

Harry: *angry* Mom! I haven't talked to Daphne since I was in the fourth grade! You can't just make me marry someone without talking it out with them! 

Anne: Her mom approved and so did she. You're gonna marry her Harry. 

Harry: I don't want to marry Daphne mom! I'm gonna marry Kim and that's it!  

Anne: Harry... 

Harry: I love Kim mom! You know how much she means to me! Don't you love her too mom? 

Anne: *sighs big* Yes, I love her dearly Harry. 

Harry: Then mom. Let me marry Kim. 

Anne: I promised Vickie that I'll make it happen. 

Harry: Mom! 

Anne: I know, I should have talked with you, but I didn't and it's happening this summer already, so you can't back out now. 

Harry: Mom! No! I'm not gonna marry Daphne, I don't want to and I'm not going to marry her. I don't love her. 

Anne: You use to have a crush on her. 

Harry: Yeah like seven years ago! I'm in love mom; I'm in love with Kim. For five years I've been in love with her. No one's gonna stop that, not you, not Daphne, or her mom! 

Anne: You know what, just go do whatever you want, tomorrow we'll talk more. 

Harry: *walks out the house mad* 

Kim: *getting out the car* Babe? 

Harry: *hugs kim tightly* 

Kim: Babe, what happened? 

Harry: I, I just need to be away from home right now.  

Kim: Here, I'll drive you, where do you want to go? 

Harry: Just somewhere away from here. 

Kim: Mom, give me the keys. 

Kathleen: *gives the keys to kim* 

Kim: *unlocks the door* 

Harry: *opens the passenger side and sits down* 

Kim: *starts the engine and drives off* What happened babe? 

Harry: My mom and I just had a talk. 

Kim: About what? 

Harry: I can't tell you right now, I have to straighten it out with her first. 

Kim: Well just know that I'm here ok babe. 

Harry: Just park right here. 

Kim: *pulls over and takes off her seat belt and faces harry* So? 

Harry: I can't tell you yet until it's clear. 

Kim: Why? Did you do something wrong? 

Harry: *takes off his seat belt and faces kim* I love you Kim and I want to be with you forever. 

Kim: I do too Harry. 

Harry: *holds in his tears* I don't want you to ever leave my side you hear me.  

Kim: I'll never leave you babe, why are you talking nonsense? 

Harry: *cries* You have to promise me that you won't ever! 

Kim: *starts to get worry* Babe, I'm right here, I'll never leave you. I don't plan to neither, so why worry? 

Harry: Because we're about to lose eachother. 

Kim: *confused* Wait? Did your mom tell me something that I didn't know of? Like am I leaving with her? 

Harry: No Kim. I'm getting married. 

Kim: *shocked* What? 

Harry: My mom, she... 

Kim: *faces the front* Get out. 

Harry: I beg your pardon? 

Kim: Get out of the car! 

Harry: Excuse me? 

Kim: *cries* Get out now! 

Harry: *gets out of the car* 

Kim: *starts the engine* 

Harry: Kim. 

Kim: *drives off* 

Harry: *stands in silence* 

Kathleen: Kim? 

Kim: *crying/runs to her room* 

Kathleen: Honey? *knocks on the door* Is everything ok? 

Kim: Leave me alone! 

Kathleen: *walks to the kitchen* 

Kim: *rips up her pictures of her and harry* 

Harry: *looks at kims house* I'm sorry babe. 

Kim: *stares out the window crying and sees harry* 

Harry: *walking into his house* 

Kim: *wipes her tears crying* 

Anne: I'm sorry I didn't ask you first Harry. I know you love Kim, but you're gonna have to love her a little different now. 

Harry: Can we not talk about this anymore. I'm done with it. *walks off to his room* 

Kim: *staring out her window* 

Harry: *opens his blinds and sees kim* 

Kim: *tries not to cry* 

Harry: *gives a sad look* 

Kim: *opens her window* 

Harry: *opens his window* I'm sorry. 

Kim: *cries* Why? Why didn't you tell me before Harry? 

Harry: I didn't know until my mom told me now.  

Kim: Why would she? 

Harry: I don't know, but I'm marrying her friends daughter Daphne. 

Kim: *wants to cry, but holds it in* 

Anne: Honey, I *sees kim* 

Kim: *looks at anne upset* 

Anne: Kim? 

Kim: *mad* Goodnight. *closes her window and blinds* 

Harry: *closes his window and looks at anne upset crossing his arms* 

Anne: She hates me now doesn't she? 

Harry: She has a reason to be doesn't she? 

Anne: *sighs* I really did hope that you and Kim were gonna get married. 

Harry: Oh really? But then what happened?! 

Anne: Harry, please. 

Harry: No! You must not like her that's why you approved with Vickie and Daphne! Just because she's your friend's daughter doesn't mean you can't say no! You have the right to reject it mom! 

Anne: *stands in silent* I'm sorry. *walks out the room* 

Harry: *sits on his bed and looks at the picture frame of him and kim kissing and then faces it down* 

Kathleen: *knocks on kims door* 

Kim: Come in. 

Kathleen: Is everything ok? 

Kim: Yeah. 

Kathleen: What happened?  

Kim: Nothing mom. 

Kathleen: You know you can tell me anything honey. I may not be here all the time, but I am your mother. So? 

Kim: *cries* Anne set up an arrange marriage for Harry and her friend's daughter. 

Kathleen: Aw. *sits on the bed next to kim and hugs her* I'm sorry. 

Kim: *cries on kathleen's shoulder*  

Kathleen: I'm very sorry baby, get some sleep and tomorrow will be a better day. 

Kim: I can't mom; nothing will ever be the same again.  

Kathleen: I love you baby. *kisses kims forehead* 

Kim: *sobbing* 

Kathleen: Get some sleep, I'll see you in the morning. 

Kim: *lays on her bed crying* 

Kathleen: *leaves the room* 

(The Next Day) 

Kim: *phone rings/wakes up* Hello? 

Anne: Hi Kim, it's Anne, do you have a minute to talk? Or would you rather go grab something to eat and talk? 

Kim: *sits up* I insist that we talk face to face in person right now. Forget about eating together because we won't be anymore. 

Anne: Ok, did you want to come over or do you want me to... 

Kim: I'm not going anywhere, you can come here. 

Anne: Ok, I'll be right over. *hangs up* 

Harry: So you're gonna to talk to her? 

Anne: She said she doesn't want to go anywhere, so I guess I am. 

Harry: Just please try to make her understand you again.  

Anne: I know son. 

Harry: She really did love you too mom. You screwed her over and I don't think she will really... want your trust back. 

Anne: I know, I'll tell her everything. *walks out the house* 

Kim: *puts her hair up in a bun and washes her face* 

Kathleen: *opens the door* Oh hey Anne, I wasn't expecting you to come over. 

Anne: Kim invited me over. 

Kathleen: Kim? My daughter invited you over? 

Anne: Yes. 

Kathleen: Well welcome in. *smiles* 

Anne: *smiles* 

Kim: *walks out her room*  

Anne: *smiles* You look beautiful Kim. 

Kim: *upset* Thanks. 

Anne: Listen, I'm sure Harry told you and I'm sure you told your mom right? 

Kathleen: Is this about the arrange marriage thing? 

Anne: Yes. 

Kathleen: Why?  

Anne: I know, that's why I'm here to explain and apologize. 

Kathleen: You know my daughter and your son are in love. How could you do this to them? 

Anne: Kim, Kathleen, I'm really sorry that I did this behind your guys back and Harry's. 

Kim: *crosses her arm* How long has this been? 

Anne: Recently. 

Kim: Like last week? What. 

Anne: Two months ago Kim. 

Kim: And you didn't bother to ask me or Harry?! 

Anne: She's my friend and yes, I could have said no, but I don't know why I didn't. Harry loves you and I know you love Harry back to, but it's too late. Everything is set, everyone's already been invited, I can't stop it now. 

Kim: When is it? 

Anne: Two weeks. 

Kim: *closes her eyes* 

Anne: *hugs kim*  

Kim: *wipes her tears* 

Kathleen: I can't believe you Anne! I come home one time every three months and you never said anything?  

Anne: You were busy Kathleen.  

Kathleen: So?! You could have called me or something! 

Anne: Everytime you came home, it was only for a day or two the most. How was I supposed to tell you when really you should be spending time with your daughter?! The one who needs you the most! The one who awaits and lingers for your touch and love! 

Kathleen: *looks at kim* 

Kim: *tries not to cry* 

Anne: You're a mother to one Kathleen! You should cherish, adore, and be with her 24/7. You left her on her own for six years. *cries* How do you expect her to love you when you're never here! 

Kim: *cries* 

Kathleen: Kim, you know I love you, but you also know how much this job meant to me. 

Kim: Anne's right mom. You're never here for me. Even when you were for a day or two, you were always doing your own things. I need a mom in my life! I need a mom to love me as their own and not be loved by her boyfriend's mom! 

Kathleen: *cries and hugs kim*  

Harry: *rings the doorbell* 

Anne: *opens the door* 

Harry: Sorry, I couldn't help, but overhear your guys' argument. 

Anne: Why are you here? 

Harry: Because I need to hear this if I'm gonna be getting married. 

Anne: Kim. 

Kim: Can we not talk about this right now. I need to clear my head and breath. *walks off to her room* 

Anne: *looks around* It seems like you're leaving huh? 

Kathleen: Yes, my ride will be here any minute and I'll be leaving from the LAX.  

Anne: Good luck and be safe. 

Kathleen: Thanks. 

Harry: Excuse me for a minute; I have to talk to Kim. *walks off* 

Kim: *fixing her hair* 

Harry: *opens the door* Hey. 

Kim: *look at harry through her mirror* Why are you here. *sits on her bed* 

Harry: I'm sorry for whatever just happened. 

Kim: No, I needed my mom to hear that actually. *crosses her arms* 

Harry: *sits next to kim on the bed* Yeah, but... about my mom, do you forgive her or? 

Kim: *stands up* It's whatever Harry. She already planned it, it's set, there's nothing I can do about it, but be happy and supportive of you.  

Harry: *grabs kims hand* Why are you acting like this? 

Kim: Like what? 

Harry: Calm? I know you're hurt, I know you're upset, you must be jealous right now too right? 

Kim: *takes a deep breath* Yes, yes I am Harry. I'm very jealous right now because you're gonna be marrying someone who isn't me! *cries* 

Harry: *stands up and hugs kim* 

Kim: *crying and hugs harry* I don't want you to get married Harry. 

Harry: *hugs kim tighter* I don't neither, but like you said, there's nothing we can do because it's already set and dated. 

Kim: I just wish it was me. 

Harry: *stares at kim*  

Kim: *closes her eyes* 

Harry: *kisses kims forehead* I'll call you tonight. *walks out the room* 

Kathleen: Your mom just left. 

Harry: Thanks. *leaves the house*
