A little over a day late on this page, day jobs have been rough for both of us, but the page is worth the wait!
LEON is about to enter the noisy room. He’s carrying a piano lesson book.
Did not. Did too. That’s crazy.
LEON enters. They all fall silent. This unnerves LEON.
Just passing through ladies. Don’t mind me.
LEON has left. LiBERTY breaks the silence.
I’d retire from crime fighting too if I had that to come home to. Mmm hmm.
They are all laughing.
LIZA is a bit serious.
We’ve been over this. I’ve done my time. Ten years I was on the Defense Force. I helped a lot of people.
You saved the world.
Couple of times.
And I loved running with you gals, but now my family needs me. I still help out on occasion, but I’m retired. This is who I am now.
