                                          SHINY                   

 

You won’t believe me!!!

 

                                                                                                      MOON

 

Because every time I do believe you I always end up being lied to!

 

                                                                                                      SHINY

 

No the last time was a big mistake Mom and I apologized about it . . . Well I know I lied about dating him but now I moved on I’m not even seeing him anymore.

 

                                                                                                     MOON

 

It doesn’t matter Shiny when you lied to me I lost trust in you!  What do you mean your dating someone I told you before Shiny your to young!

 

SHINY

 

Your saying I’m to young when I’m 18 now I’m not a little star anymore . . . Mom I know me and you are not always going to come to an agreement.  This Light is like my night and day – he’s perfect for me.         

 

                                                                                                     MOON

 

 

 

You don’t know what perfect is Shiny until you get married and have an happy family. You understand!

 

                                                                                                     SHINY

 

I understand!  Mom he’s perfect I tell you!  PERFECT!!!  I don’t want no other light but him (begging) pleeeeassee                                                                                                                                                        MOON

 

Say Shiny, what is it that Light does for you?

 

                                                                                                    SHINY

 

He teaches me how to reach higher for earth (reaching up). He can show me how to shine brighter in the sky.

 

                                                                                                  MOON

 

Shiny if you go to the middle of earth how is that going to make me feel  (Sad) You’re my protection at night in the sky.

 

                                                                                                   SHINY

 

Mom you’re the moon you are brighter then the atmosphere.  You are like the Giant can’t nobody put you down.  I promise!

 

                                                                                                 MOON

 

Shiny how do you think that’s not going to affect our family?  We love you!  You’re my only daughter.

 

                                                                                                SHINY

 

Don’t you think if you get married to Thunder your not going to have any more stars moving around earth like me.  Of course you will Mom . . . Trust and believe

 

                                                                                                MOON

 

Yea, they will but you’re my first.  If I let you go its going to be sad but the time will get better I guess (shoulders shrug).                                                                                                                                         SHINY

 

Mom I’m older let me just make my decisions and whats best for me.  Light would not hurt me in any type of way but teach me how to shine brighter.  He could never hurt me.

 

                                                                       

 

 MOON

 

I feel you should stay on my planet until I have your little starzey’s.  At night I need you you’re my only protection.  Shiny you know when it gets dark at night who’s going to be around me to protect me from the heat?

 

                                                                        SHINY

 

If I don’t date Light then I would never shine bright.  Its only a matter of time before Light has to go back down to earth and burn and I don’t want that – Mama Moon please.

 

                                                                        MOON

 

And if I say NO then he would still have to burn because your to young to date him Shiny stay with me (control)

 

                                                                        SHINY

 

Mom the clock is ticking he needs me and I need him.  Before its to late

 

                                                                        MOON

 

How does a star and light need each other Shiny? Please explain Shiny

 

                                                                        SHINY

 

He’s the light that’s going to make me be brighter and I’m the star that’s going to make him shine.

 

                                                                        MOON

 

What do you mean brighter?

 

                                                                        SHINY

 

He’s going to help me grow and shine outta all stars around me.  I’m the only purple star that stands out.

 

                                                                        MOON

 

Okay Shiny! (softer, calmer) You bring him at middle night and let me meet him and discuss this situation about star and light being together.

 

SHINY

 

Okay Mom I will but please don’t bring up the time he has to be back down to earth before he burns.

 

                                                                        MOON

 

Why not he doesn’t want anybody to know that he’s a light that getting used on earth to burn

 

                                                                        SHINY

 

Its not that.  Its just his secret that he doesn’t want nobody to know Light burns on earth every time he gets used.

 

                                                                        MOON

 

Well if he comes with us how isn’t he going to get used?

 

                                                                        SHINY

 

He can be up here with the family and never have to go back to earth again and get burned.

 

                                                                        MOON

 

(Confused face)  Sayyyy What are you saying now Shiny about the family situation?  You want to become one

 

                                                                        SHINY

 

Mom instead of me leaving going to the middle of the atmosphere I can stay up top with you and the family and Light can be in the family.

 

                                                                        MOON

 

So now you don’t want to be away you want to stay even if I become a family with Thunder

 

                                                                        SHINY

 

You can become a family with Thunder Mom and have my little starzeys I will still be here up top with you

 

                                                                       

 

 

 

MOON

 

Still be here as my protector at night?  How are you going to work things out with you and Light, Shiny?  I don’t want to cause any problems . . .

 

                                                                        SHINY

 

Problems?  Mom (sweet-talk) I can talk to Light about us becoming a bigger family and me protecting you at night I know he’ll understand how I can and need to protect you.

 

                                                                        MOON

 

Okay Shiny we came to an agreement, you don’t leave, stay and bring Light with you and you can discuss with him about you being my protector at night.

 

                                                                       

 

SHINY

 

OKAY!  (Spins around 2 times)

 

                                                                        MOON

 

(Tilt to the right and turn head forward – this means “Okay!”)
