Now this is how things should go down between Kelsey and Shane.
[Fifteen minutes goes by and Kelsey is sitting in the living room waiting nervously for Shane’s arrival.
Shane knocks at the front door and Kelsey lets him in.]
[Kelsey greets him and then they go upstairs to her room.]
[Shane’s sitting on Kelsey’s bed and Kelsey is sitting on her computer chair, looking down at the floor nervously.]
Shane: So what’s up you wanted to talk to about something important I’m guessing?
Kelsey: Yeah I have something I want to tell you.
Shane: Kels say no more, you’re finally coming out this is wonderful. So is there a girl you like or something?
[Shane smiles and winks.]
Kelsey: No, I’m not a lesbian, but I am coming out to you though.
[Shane looking confused.]
Kelsey: I’m transgender.
[Shane examines Kelsey for a moment and then smiles a large smile.]
[Shane points his finger at her and wags it.]
Shane: I knew that there was something you were having trouble coming to terms with. So how long have you known?
Kelsey: A few years now.
Shane: Cool, cool, so is that why you broke up with me? Or are you into girls as I’ve suspected all along?
Kelsey that is part of the reason I broke up with you in junior high, and yes I do like girls.
[Shane leaps up from her bed and jumps up and down with excitement.]
Shane: Yes! I knew it! I knew that you were attracted to girls. So you got any lined eh?
Kelsey: Well there is this one girl.
[Shane smiles even wider than before.]
Shane: Oh who is it?
Kelsey: Greta Rucksford.
[Shane looks excited.]
Shane: Does she know?
[Kelsey suddenly looking very shy and nervous says…]
Kelsey: No are you crazy.
[Shane puts his hands up.]
Shane: Whoa hey sorry, I saw you getting into her car after school and I just thought.
Kelsey: Nope there’s nothing going on between us, she was just giving me a lift.
[Shane looking a little disappointed.]
Shane: Dang really?
Shane: Okay, well I have some questions for you about this transgender thing.
[Kelsey rolls her eyes and smiles.]
Kelsey: Of course you do, well go on.
Shane: Okay, so would you get a sex change?
Kelsey: Yes whenever I can get the money together.
Shane: Okay, would you where those binders, packers, and use the those little medicine spoons to learn how to pee like a dude?
Kelsey: Yes, yes, and yes.
[Shane lets out an obnoxiously long, Ooh.]
[Shane getting even more excited as he thinks of more questions to ask.]
Shane: I’ve got a good question for you.
[Kelsey shakes her head and rolls her eyes.]
Shane: Do you have a name for yourself?
[Shane wide-eyed with excitement.]
Shane: What is it? What is it? Tell me, tell me.
Kelsey: Alright down boy down. It’s Chester.
Shane: Shane Marcus how’s it going Chester Beckman?
[Chester shakes Shane’s hand.]
[Chester in a more masculine voice.]
Chester: It’s going well and yourself my fellow guy?
Shane: Quite well, it’s a great day to be a man eh?
Chester: Yes wonderful.
[Shane and Chester laugh.]
Chester: I can’t believe you’re so cool with this. I just came out to my grandparents and they freaked.
Shane: You’re my best friend naturally I would support you.
Chester: I’m glad, thanks.
[Shane smacks a hand to Chester’s shoulder.]
Shane: Of course buddy.
[Shane: Looks at the time on his phone.]
Shane: Shoot I’ve got to get going.
Shane: But don’t worry buddy I got your back and I’ll always be here for you.
Chester: Thanks man.
[Shane and Chester give each other a one-armed hug and fist bump. Afterward Shane exits the room and leaves for home.]
