A week after Linaly's lttle illness, shes up and running again and is up and about, still unpacking boxes. Strider has been living his life like a regular guy, and now it Saturday morning. Cut to Linaly. Shes cooking breakfast, huming a tune to herself.
Linaly: Mmmm......mmmm.....mmmmm.....mmm.........mmmm.....(snifffffff) Ah! It feels so great to breathe again! (chuckle) I think it was his fish!
She finishes cooking, brings her meal into the living room, kneels down in front of the table, and begins to eat while reading a magazine. Then Striders little offer that he made a week ago pops into her head.
Linaly: Well, he diddnt cancel it.........I have a way to make it better.
Cut to Striders house, just next door. He is sleeping, with his body strewn about all over gis bed, arms strecthing out, blanket all messed up and wirnkly, and snoring heavily. Fio tiptoes in.
Fio: Pit pat pit pat pit pat.........
Fio: OOOO, look at him sleep.........(inching towards Striders mouth)kissy time.....Mmmmmmmmmmmmm
Centimeters before Fio locks lips, Strider wakes up and freaks out.
Strider:aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaHHHH!!! What are you doing?!?!?!?
Fio: Why, kissing you of course!
Strider: But....BUT.............you know, forget it. Ill just faint from yelling. (sigh) Whats for breakfast?
Fio: Come and see, sleepyhead(giggles)!
Fio prances out of the room.
Strider: What nosy little annoyance. (grumble) Better freshen up
Strider hops out of bed, and walks to his bathroom. He takes his clothes off and gets into the shower. He turns on the water.
Strider: Ahhhhhh.........a shower is just what I needed! Now, shampoo......huh?
Strider notices his shampoo is missing, and walks to the bathroom door.
Strider(shouting): Hey!! Anyone have my shampoo?
Eriya: Got it right here
Strider: I need it!!!
Eriya: Hold your horses!!
Eriya gets an idea.
Sriya creeps towards Striders bathroom door, and forcefully swings it open.
Strider quicly covers himself up with his large hair.
Strider: Get out!!! Out!! OUT!!!!!
Eriya: Well, I guess all that hair is good for something!! Heres your shampoo!(tosses it)
Strider: Oh, just go!!!!
Eriya: (laughs) Bye!
Cut to Linaly. Shes on the phone with Sherry.
Sherry: So lemme get this straight. Instead of a private "date", you wanna take Strider, Me, Ankei, and of Strider friends? Are you nuts? Your passing up a great moment!!
Linaly: Well, yeah, but, I just wanna be friends, you know. I really like him, im just starting out nice and easy. He just cool to hang around with, and yeah, I like him enough to get close to him.

Eriya: Hey guys........where ya off to.
Strider: Were gonna see some friends. Lay off.
Eriya: Can I come?

Linaly: Hi! Hey, whos this guy with ya?
Strider: Oh! His name is Rion. Were pretty tight!
Linaly: Nice to meet ya!!
Rion: Same here! (Damn, shes cute.)
Ankei pulls into the driveway, and Sherry is with her. Lianly loks a bit puzzled.
Lianly: Whats with the car?
Ankei: I thought i'd drive you kids.
Lianly: Kids? Please!!!
Ankei: Ha ha! Ok, enough hanging around! Weve got an arcade to tear up!!
Lianly: Yeah. lets go!!
Everyone jumps into the car. Linaly makes sure she's snugly sitting next to Strider, who is flish with red. They drive off.
