JUSTINE and SARAH getting ready for bed.
SARAH: You promise?
SARAH: You promise, promise?
JUSTINE: Promise, promise?
SARAH: Do you!?
JUSTINE: Yes, yes. Sure. I promise, promise.
SARAH: You promise, promise to do what?
SARAH: Say it!
JUSTINE: How old are we?
SARAH: If you’re really committing to this, I want to hear you say it out loud.
JUSTINE: Fine… fine… I promise to –
SARAH: Promise, promise@
JUSTINE: Oh my god. I promise, promise to… wake up in time to see the sunrise with you tomorrow.
JUSTINE: Are you happy now?
SARAH: Yes! But I take it back if you don’t wake up in time.
JUSTINE: I will!
SARAH: Good. We better sleep then.
In one swift and impressive motion, JUSTINE and SARAH yawn and fall into bed.
Some time passes.
Then – earlier than anyone wants it to – SARAH’s alarm goes off.
After some shifting around, SARAH wakes up and turns off the alarm.
SARAH looks at JUSTINE.
JUSTINE is still fast asleep.
SARAH (Shaking JUSTINE): Babe.
JUSTINE (Turning away from SARAH): Mmm…
SARAH: It’s time to wake up.
SARAH: Babe! Come on! We have to go out and see the sunrise!
JUSTINE: In a little bit…
SARAH: No. Not in a little bit. There’s no time for a little bit! The sunrise doesn’t wait for a little bit!
JUSTINE: How do you know the sun is rising.
SARAH: The app says so!
JUSTINE: Maybe the app is wrong.
SARAH: The app is never wrong!
JUSTINE (Turning away from SARAH): Mmmmm, let me sleep…
SARAH: You promised!
JUSTINE: No, I didn’t
SARAH is stunned.
SARAH: What? Are you saying you DID NOT promise to wake up to see the sunrise with me?
JUSTINE: I promise, promised.
SARAH (Shaking Justine harder, kind of amused): Then come on! We’re gonna miss it!
JUSTINE: I’m still sleepy.
SARAH: I know but you promise, promised!
JUSTINE reaches over and starts tapping SARAH on the forehead.
SARAH: What are you doing?
JUSTINE (continuing to tap SARAH on the forehead): Snoozing you.
After a few more taps to the forehead.
JUSTINE rolls herself further into the blankets and falls deeper into sleep.
SARAH laughs to herself.
SARAH gives up.
SARAH gets up and leaves the room to watch the sunrise.
END OF PLAY.
