by 2020-01-12)- (
George and Elizabeth are talking in the living room, while little Tracy is playing with a stuffed animal on the carpet. Suddenly Sophie comes into the living room without taking her eyes off her mobile and without paying any attention to anyone.
George: “Hi Sophie, you sound speechless! We haven't seen each other all day and you don't even say hello!”.
With an annoyed air she says: "Hi", keeping her eyes on her mobile.
Tracy says: “Look mom, she’s always on her mobile phone!”.
Sophie kicks Tracy nervously.
Elizabeth getting up says: “Don’t treat badly your sister! Tell her sorry!”.
Sophie shrugs but says: “Sorry Tracy....Are you happy now, mum? Anyway, some of my friends are having a party tonight....Can I go there?”.
Elizabeth and George say together: “Who, where, when, why?”.
George: “Who would accompany you? I work till late and I don’t want to take the car out to drive you to the party!”.
Tracy: “It’s better, so dad and I could spend time together tonight!”.
Sophie says: “Emily’s cousin would take me and the party will take place in the Jacob’s basement.”.
Elizabeth glancing her husband says: “George, what do you think?”.
George: “I don’t trust Jacob.”.
Elizabeth: “Me too....”.
Sophie: “But Jacob is a friend!”.
Tracy: “Oh Sophie has a boyfriend *laughs*”.
Sophie: “Shut up Tracy! It’s not true.”.
George: “No, I’m sorry Sophie, but I’ve decided you can’t go to the party.”.
Sophie annoyed, sits on the table and says: “Mum, dad....I remember you I’m sixteen. Times have changed. They aren’t the same when you were young! I have the right to go there and you should know and trust me.”.
Elizabeth: “We trust you, but we don’t trust the other people!”.
Tracy: “I wouldn’t even trust you.”.
Elizabeth: “If you watch the news, you could understanding the world where we live!”.
George: “Your mother is right! We don’t know anything about the guys at the party, we can’t imagine their intentions.”.
Sophie: “Always the same excuses! I’ve never got home drunk or too late”.
Elizabeth: “Yes, but we have to ensure that you fell good!”.
Sophie: “I’ll be careful, I promise.”
George: “OK, you can go. Please, remember what we told you, just a mistake is enough to betray our trust.”.
Sophie with a satisfied air hugs, kisses and thanks her parents.
Tracy: “If I were you, I wouldn’t let her go, she doesn’t deserve it, you must also notice the way she treated me!!”.
Before getting out the door, Sophie catches Tracy’s stuffed animal and throws it away.
