FLOWERS IN THE DESERT
Part 20


ACT II


Scene 1


(JAMIE and SAM are watching the sunrise - they never went to sleep - been up all night talking)


PAULA
What a beautiful morning. Oh thank you, God for making sure I didn't miss this.
SAM
I hate morning people.
PAULA
Look at that sun rising out of the mountains. You know, I think I'm getting a little peek at God.
(Rooster crows)
Oh, I'm coming Colonel Sanders. I haven't forgotten about you.
(Exits R)
SAM
That girl is so weird.
JAMIE
I wish I could be that happy in the morning. The only thing I like to see this early is my pillow.
SARGE
(Appears at window)
There you are. What are you girls doing?
SAM
We got up early to see the sunset.


JAMIE
Sunrise.
SAM
Sunrise. I've been bragging to Jamie so much about it she just had to see it.
SARGE
And how would you know how nice they are? You're never up this early.
SAM
How would you know?
SARGE
Because I'm always up this early.
SAM
Oh.
SARGE
Since you’re up, I need your help.


SAM
Oh, no. Really?


SARGE
Come on.


(SAM sighs and goes inside. JAMIE takes out a journal and looks at a picture. PAULA enters and goes up to JAMIE)


PAULA
Hi, Jamie. Whatcha doin’?


JAMIE
Just looking at my journal. Sometimes I write in it. And I collect pictures.


(PAULA sits by JAMIE and looks at the picture she is holding)


PAULA
Who is that? He’s cute.


JAMIE
My ex-boyfriend.


PAULA
Ex?


JAMIE
Yeah, he broke up with me.


PAULA
I’m sorry.


JAMIE
It’s okay. I wish I knew why. He just stopped talking to me one day. Not that he liked to talk much anyway. Guys never do. They always have something else in mind.
PAULA
You know, I've never even been on a date. I mean being single was fine for Jesus and all, but I got special needs. Is that bad of me to think that way?
JAMIE
Well, no...
PAULA
I'd really like to get to know a boy. Hold his hand.
(Embarrassed)
Kiss him...
JAMIE
Don’t you know any boys?
PAULA
Not many boys around here. That’s on purpose I’m sure. They’re trying to keep us safe I suppose.
JAMIE
You go to church don't you?
PAULA
Yeah.
JAMIE
Don't you like any guys there?
PAULA
They all think I'm weird. Heck, they think all of us are weird. The only one of us they'll have anything to do with is Shelly and we all know why they like her.
JAMIE
Why's that?
PAULA
'Cause she's pretty.
JAMIE
You're pretty.
PAULA
Not like that.
JAMIE
No, but in your own special way.
PAULA
But guys don't want special.
JAMIE
Some do.
PAULA
I haven't met any.
JAMIE
One will come along.
PAULA
You think so?
JAMIE
Yes. Tell you what. Why don't we go up to your room and I'll show you just how pretty you are. We'll put some make-up on you, do your hair, and find a dress that compliments your better qualities.
PAULA
I don't know.
JAMIE
Come on. It'll be fun. And if you don't like it, you can wash it all off.
PAULA
(Smiles)
Jamie?
JAMIE
Yeah?
PAULA
Why are you being so nice to me?
JAMIE
What do you mean?
PAULA
Nobody else here cares. At least not any of the girls.
JAMIE
I'll have to tell you, Paula. Not everybody is like the girls you live with here. There are some pretty nice people out there. Sometimes they're hard to find, but they're there.
PAULA
I'm sure glad I found one of them.


JAMIE
I am too. Let's go.
(They go inside arm in arm)
