The directions spring to mind fully formed. He feels -- strange, as if he's looking from above and following a predefined path.

"You've brought her with you, down here. She has real potential, you know. To attain the Stage."

"You don't have to call him that. It's rude, and not accurate. Besides, if anyone should be taking their place on the stage, it's me, I've worked so very hard for this."

Her face is as inscrutable as his own, but there's a tremble of emotion in her voice. "I'll prove myself. You'll see, that this is my rightful stage!" She turns and storms after Zero.

"I see you here all the time, you just never hear me."

"That seems unlikely."

"I literally yell your name and you just don't even look up."

"What do you want."

Permalink

"I thought you wanted a script."

Permalink

"I do."

Permalink

"I brought you one."

Permalink

"Oh. Okay."

"Aren't you going to thank me?"

Permalink

"... Thank you."

Permalink

"Wait!"

He gives it a try.

Permalink

"I have a cue, make it quick."

Permalink

"Who are you?"

Permalink

"Seriously? I'm Nana!" She turns to walk away.
