Alexia- She is tall with think brown hair. She has hazel eyes, and soft peach skin. She is sweet and sarcastic and she is in love with Levi.
Levi- a few inches taller that Alexia, he has short black hair and dark peach colored skin. He is nice, and really smart.
Scene- Alexia and Levi are saying goodbye in Alexia’s yard after a fun night at the community fair. Its night time, and its cold and windy outside.
Alexia: So… what did you want to talk to me about?
Levi: (Silence)
Alexia: Is it something bad? Why won’t you talk to me?
Levi: (changing the subject) did you have a good time at the fair?
Alexia: It was fine, but you seemed like you weren’t having a good time.
Levi: Oh, I was.
Alexia: Then why wouldn’t you ride any of the rides with me?
Levi: Come on Alex, you know me better. I don’t like those kinds of things.
Alexia: You could have at least been excited for me. I mean, it is my birthday and all.
Levi: Yes, I know.
Alexia: I really don’t understand you right now. You’re acting…
Levi: Different?
Alexia: Yeah.
Levi: I’ve just been thinking about a lot of different things and I’m confused.
Alexia: What are you talking about?
Levi: I don’t know.
Alexia: Yes you do, you’re just nor telling me.
Levi: (Changing the subject again) you had a good time tonight right?
Alexia: Yes! But stop trying to get out of this conversation; I know something is up with you.
Levi: Fine. (Looks to the ground with disappointment)
Alexia: (Stares at him confused).
Levi: My parents.
Alexia: Huh?
Levi: My parents are moving.
Alexia: (sighs with relief) Oh, thank God. I thought something really serious was going on. We can still make it work long distance.
Levi: No. You don’t get it do you?
Alexia: Get what?
Levi: I’m going to collage really soon and…
Alexia: And what? (Impatient and confused)
Levi: I just don’t think this is going to work out anymore.
Alexia: Yes it will! If you love me, it can work out.
Levi: (doesn’t respond)
Alexia: Do you not want us to work out?
Levi: Look, we had a good time tonight did we not? I just want you to be happy.
Alexia: But…, I’m not happy without you. (Stares to the ground)
Levi: You are so much better off without me.
Alexia: But…
Levi: What?
Alexia: You said you loved me.
Levi: I just wanted you to be happy.
Alexia: So, you’re saying you never did love me... you lied…
Levi: Don’t say that. I’ve had some great times with you.
Alexia: (goes to hug him with tears forming in her eyes)
Levi: (doesn’t react to hug)
Alexia: Will I ever see you again?
Levi: Probably not. (Pushes her away from him)
Alexia: (holds back her tears)
Levi: (heads towards his care) well, I guess I’ll see y’ ‘round.
Alexia: (watches him drive off, and then walks inside to let her tears out)

I made this into a play, and I changed the names, but this actually happened to me; so I thought I'd make it into a play.
