FULL COURSE DIVORCE: Act Four, (Final) Scene Four

Note: In this short, final scene, things are looking better, so I searched my photos for the prettiest flowers.

ACT FOUR

Scene Four


Bekka

How did it go in court, Mom? Does Dad have to pay the premium?

Kate

Yes, and he also has to pay for the court fees, even though I took him to court. The judge was going to fine him, but ordered that he pay the court fees instead. Now the policy is secure for your education.

Bekka

I’m sorry you had to go back in court. I know how much you hated it when you and Dad were divorcing.

Kate

Yes, but I felt much more confident this time, because I knew your Dad had violated the terms of the divorce.

Bekka

He has a hard time keeping his promises, I think. He always tells me we’ll do all these terrific things and then he backs out.

Kate

Yes, he did that during the separation and divorce proceedings. I think he has grand ideas and then can’t live up to them. I am sorry he disappoints you.

Bekka

It’s okay. I’m old enough now to know that parents aren’t perfect.  But today was a good day for you. Let’s celebrate!

Kate

I got an idea! How about if we both get a manicure and then go out to eat?

Bekka

Wow! I’ve never had a manicure. But I’m starving. Can we eat first, please?

Kate

Absolutely. First dinner— and then a manicure.

Bekka

Can I have my nails painted orange? It’s my favorite color.

Kate

Orange? (She shrugs) Why not? I’m gonna get me a full set of nails and I may just paint mine green!

The two walk off stage, Kate’s arm around Bekka’s shoulders, and Bekka’’s arm around her mother’s waist. Both of them are looking at their free hand in anticipation of their manicures and a full set of nails!
