Paint My Heart. Act Eight.



Jane: Good morning Naomi, why are you so extraordinarily happy this morning? Oh wait let me guess, today is Thursday and my father will be coming back tomorrow.

JANET: She deserves to be happy Jane, she has waited for a whole week for Felix.

NAOMI: Aren't you going to school today?

JANE: Nope we are on mid term break, Thursday and Friday. I am so happy we can torment you today and tomorrow before father comes back.

JANET: Hey look at snake!

NAOMI: (screams and jump) oh my God where!

JANE: (laughing) scary cat.

NAOMI: What did I do to you kids, why can't you just stop giving me heartache?

JANET: Watch your back Naomi. (walks out with Jane)

NAOMI: Oh these monsters! Felix baby please come back quickly.


JANE: Wow Naomi where are your colleagues? Gone to eat? Why don't you come prepare toast again in the kitchen? (Mocking her)

NAOMI: No, no, I brought food.

JANET: Wow so you can bring food and you decided to disturb our father the other day?

JANE: Why did you hide your food flask under the empty paint bucket?

NAOMI: Oh my God!!! How did you know it's there? Did you put something in my food?

JANE: Ask Google.

NAOMI: What did you put in my food you monsters?

JANE: Hey stop accusing us, why not open the paint bucket and take your food flask.

NAOMI: (opens the paint bucket and sees a black cat staring at her) God!!! (She screens)

NAOMI: Oh God!!! (runs and hits a paint plastic and the whole paint wastes) oh God not again!

JANE: But what is wrong with you Naomi? You see a portrait of a snake you scream, now you see a black cat you still scream, so you are afraid of both wild and domestic animals? (Laughing)

NAOMI: Oh no no ,this monsters won't kill me. (grasping for breath)

JANET: (calls the cat) Come here kitty, kitty. Naomi your food is in the drawer, that's where it is supposed to be not under a paint plastic.

JANE: Stay away from Felix! Bye for now. (walks out with Janet)



BOSS: (walks in) oh God what happened here Naomi! Who wasted the paint again? Mr Felix isn't here?

NAOMI: I did again.

BOSS: What do you mean again?

NAOMI: I wasted the first one and put the blame on Felix, now his kids are making me pay for it, please boss I will replace it tomorrow.

BOSS: Okay crazy doctor. But you look pale, didn't you eat your food?

NAOMI. No i don't want to.

BOSS: Naomi please it's high time you confide in me. What really is going on? Why are you here? Talk to me. (Looking tired and puzzled )

BOB: (cuts in) This really is funny, are u scared of eating to? Please bring the food let me eat it for you.

NAOMI: Its in the drawer. Boss please not today. Let's talk some other time. (Looking tired)

Bob: Oh thanks hon, (brings the food out of the drawer) the food i ate outside was just to small (takes a full spoon of rice) hmm, hmm, what on earth is this? (spits it out) is this not Cantor I just cracked with my teeth! Why did you put Cantor in your food?

NAOMI: Now you see why I didn't want to eat it, I knew those monsters must have dropped something inside since they know where i kept the food.

BOB: But this is serious o! (Annoyed )

BOSS: Please lets hurry up and finish up for today I'm not comfortable with those two monsters around, why didn't they go to school?
