Let me go, of Leave me be (2009)

A Play by Tiaba F.

CHARACTERS: Bubbles the Chihuahua, Girl, 1 year old in dog years Sweetie the Blue Nose Pit, 8 months in dog years
SETTING: In a medium sized tree house on a ranch in Brazil, 25 minutes away from main land, with a barn in the back, with horses, peacocks, pigs roosters and cows back there.
TIME: 7am in the beautiful morning and it’s about 75 degrees outside.
AT RISE: Bubbles is practicing in the mirror, with Sweetie right on her side doing back flips.  Bubbles is telling Sweetie that she can’t go because of her safety, and Bubbles figures her mom is going to get mad if she leaves the ranch, especially with Sweetie.

   

BUBBLES

What do you think you’re doing?

SWEETIE

I’m practicing to get ready for the competition.  Why are you so worried right now?

BUBBLES

No!  Sweetie!  I told you I can’t allow myself to take you with me out this ranch just to go to this competition.

SWEETIE

[Whining] But why?

BUBBLES

Because mom is not going to be ok with this.  What if something happens to you?

SWEETIE

[Whining] But nothing’s going to happen.

BUBBLES

Can you stop!  Now you know I’ll do anything with and for you, but this is not the time, Sweetie!

SWEETIE

Why?  I can go out there with you.

BUBBLES

[Aggressively] No!

SWEETIE

See you’re not even looking at it on the bright side.

BUBBLES

What are you talking about?

SWEETIE

See, that’s what I’m saying.  If you just let me go with you we can do this!

BUBBLES

No!

SWEETIE

But I’m smart, cute and talented.  I can do this for you, Mom, family, all of us.

BUBBLES

And I never said you wasn’t.  You just have to understand, if something was to happen to you I’m going to be the one to be blamed on.  Then I’m just going to be dis-owned.

SWEETIE

[Crying] But why?  Nothing’s going to happen.

BUBBLES

Sweetie, Right now you’re worried about yourself.  You’re not looking it on both sides.  You are younger than me, so if anything was to go wrong with you in my presence, I will be held responsible for that.

SWEETIE

You don’t have to worry about that!  I’ll be fine!

BUBBLES

[Laughing] You’re crazy!

SWEETIE

I’m serious!  I really want to go!  I feel I can really help by going.  I want what would be best for all of us too.

BUBBLES

Do you really want to help?!

SWEETIE

Yes!

BUBBLES

Well how about you agree with what I said.  By just waiting here and trusting me on my word that I will be back.

SWEETIE

But don’t you think Mom would be happy for me, you, us!

BUBBLES

Listen!  Sweetie, I love you, and you’re my little sister, but I also want best for me, you, Mom and our brothers P-World, Nickles.  I have to look over you!  So if anything was to go wrong with you, don’t you believe I’m going to get blame for it.

SWEETIE

But?

BUBBLES

And do you know that mom will be very mad, and will hate me forever?

SWEETIE

But don’t you think Mom wants best for me?

BUBBLES

Yes?

SWEETIE

Well then don’t you think she’ll be happy of me.  Too be happy be going.

BUBBLES

No!  But now remember how we used to be out back, having playhouse time with Mom, P-world, and Nickles.

SWEETIE

Yes.

BUBBLES

Well don’t you think, from how much you were getting all the attention and love along with me!?

SWEETIE

Yes.

BUBBLES

Well don’t you still want it to be that way.

SWEETIE

Yes.  What are you trying to say?

BUBBLES

I’m saying if I let you go with me, I’ll be settling myself for less by taking you with me.  And if something goes on, I’ll be having to deal with the consequences.  And it really won’t be like those days.

SWEETIE

Well then, what’s really going on?  Are you trying to hide something from me!?  Why is it that much of a bigger problem?!  Why don’t we just go ask mom about going?  Since you’re so worried about what mom thinks.

BUBBLES

Because!  I want to feel that I’m doing something for us at least just this one time.  You get all the attention and eyes!  And I been jealous and been feeling pretty left out!  So me going to this contest can really mean the world and life for us.

SWEETIE

But?

BUBBLES

But?  Nothing.  I have to get to this contest by tomorrow!  And I want you to do me a favor.

SWEETIE

But?

BUBBLES

Just listen and promise me you’re not going to tell mom.  See I need to be there so we can be out of here.  And if I go to get this over with, I promise we will have many other contests to attend.   Just trust me on this one and let me go by myself!  I will be back.

SWEETIE

Well, can you just please be about your word and promise me you will come back.

BUBBLES

I promise…

SWEETIE

And Bubbles, I’m sorry you were feeling left out!  I always looked up to you!  So I couldn’t really notice that.  And if you think that what’s would be best then, you can go ahead and go for it!

BUBBLES

Thanks for understanding.  No matter how much we might have our disagreements, I will always be here for you, mom, P-World and Nickles.

SWEETIE

Ok, good luck!  Bubbles!

SWEETIE & BUBBLES

I love you!

[They both shake hands and hug.]

THE END.
