11. INSIDE- HOUSE-SALON-DAY- 11

Dina is standing up wearing a satin red dress. Her hair is up and her face has make-up on.

                           SUSANNA

                Wow! Some are going to be jealous tonight! I’m so proud of you!

Dina Smiles!

                            DINA

                Finally! Prom night!

                           SUSANNA

                With Patrick…

Dina looks at her mother

                           DINA           

We are just friends!

                           SUSANNA

                Yeah… mmm… I forgot about that!

The doorbell rings. Dina is looking at herself before stepping out and looks at the reflection of another Jesus cross hanging on the wall.

                           DINA

It’s him! Please mom don’t be extra!

                           SUSANNA

                Me never…

Dina looks at her mother and starts laughing while walking toward the door. She takes a deep breath and open the door. She can’t believe her eyes.

                           DINA

                What the hell are you doing here Benjamin? What do you want?

He looks at her a while before answering.

                           BENJAMIN

                You look really beautiful! I’m…

Benjamin ears a baby cries coming closer to the door and sees Susanna with his son in her arms. Susanna is behind her daughter and eye-rolling Benjamin.

                                                               DINA

Listen! I’m happy that you’re out of jail, I’m sorry that it’s only today that you’re meeting your son for the first time but you haven’t show any sign of life for more than a year! I didn’t know you were in jail until a few weeks ago.

Benjamin gets a gift out of his pocket. Dina opens the little box and sees her gold chain. She looks behind him and sees the limousine coming in front of her house.

                                                                    DINA

You got it back… thanks! We’ll figure something out for Jordan’s sake. I’ve got to go, it’s my prom night and I just want to have fun with my friends.   

                                                                   BENJAMIN

                                   I get it!... have fun

Benjamin is looking at his son and walks towards and cross pass Patrick walking towards Dina’s house. They both look at each other. Dina notice Marco’s face in the car and shakes her head. Susanna gets back inside with Jordan. Patrick gets in front of the house with a corsage in his hands.

                                                                    PATRICK

                                     You look great! Are you ready?

                                                                     DINA

Are you kidding me! I’ve been waiting for this for so long. I didn’t even think that I would graduate.

                                                                     PATRICK

                                      Told you that you would make it! This is for you.

Dina takes the corsage and put it on her wrist.

                                                                     DINA

                                        Thank you so much! Let’s go have fun!

                                                                       PATRICK

                                           Yep let’s go!

Dina ears her mother behind her.

                                                                        SUSANNA

                                             Wait wait! Let’s take pictures while Jordan sleeps

Dina smile and get inside the limo. She gets the window down and puts her hands on her gold chain hanging on her neck.

               Well! Let’s go pick up the others! It’s going to be unforgettable.

Dina shakes it off and take a deep breath from the summer breeze. The driver plays some music and Patrick start dancing a little bit. Dina looks at her mother outside. She smiles at her while the limo is driving away! The sun is shining on Dina’s gold chain.
