INT./EXT. CAR/DRIVE THRU WINDOW - DAY
Two strawberry shakes. One Neopolitan. And a
large fry. That'll be $16.92
Tia puts her nail polish brush back in its bottle.
Times have changed Tia, cough it up.
Tia pulls down her top a little and pushes up the twins. She leans over Vanessa toward the drive-thru window, laying the accent on thick.
Escuse me hansom youn man- it's my daughter's
birthday right here.
She blinks flirtatiously. Vanessa fake smiles.
No. It isn't. And she isn't my mom.
She's a shy. Plis. She jus' turn seventeen.
Vanessa pushes Tia's face away. She digs in her backpack.
I actually don't even know her.
She needs a date to the dance!
Just take the free shake, kid.
The worker dude puts Vanessa's credit card into a Square reader and hands her a bag of fries.
Careful they're hot.
Vanessa grabs the fries and quickly plops them in Tia's lap. They catch on fire. Tia smacks them to snub them out.
She throws the smoking bag of fries back out the window. It hits the worker dude's face as he holds out the shakes.
Bainesa that was young and hormonal and tonto.
Have you been taking your pills?
He said they were hot.
Are you cereal?
They look at each other, then both crack up. The worker dude clears his throat. Vanessa reaches for the shakes.
Just the shakes, thanks.
