ACT 1 SCENE 1
It’s nighttime on the street outside of my apartment building. The cherry trees have just blossomed and hang like clustering sprites overtop of us in the moonlight.
Enter WOMAN 1, WOMAN 2 and ME.
WOMAN 1: (slurring words) Hey! You know this car?
WOMAN 1: You like this car?
ME: I’m not really a Subaru fan––is something going to happen to that car?
WOMAN 1: I can’t see into the future, I’m no wizard. Do I look like a wizard?
WOMAN 2: (snickers behind the car)
ME: (looks closely to confirm that she is not in fact a wizard) No.
WOMAN 1: (yelling) Then get outta here! We’re just a couple of muggles out on a Tuesday!
ME: (skates off to the entrance of the apartment building)
I hear a loud crunch, followed by a booming second impact––this one accompanied by a tinkling of glass shards on the pavement that sounds like a rush of radio static.
