Alice: Mum? How long are you gonna be?
Mum: Another hour or so, why?
Alice: Someone's dropped a box off outside our house.
Mum: Oh. I haven't ordered anything. Is their a name on it?
Alice: Yeah. It has our address and your name on it.
Mum: Odd. Does it have a return address on it? Does it have another name on it, maybe on the bottom?
Alice: OH MY LORD THE BOX HAS STARTED SCREAMING! THERE'S SOMETHING IN THERE
Mum: Geez. Is there any name on it?
Alice: No! Nothing except our address and name.
Mum: That's peculiar.
Alice: The screaming is getting louder! It isn't even human! What the hell is it?
Mum: I don't know honey. But leave it alone until I get there. Go to your room.
Alice: How?! This is making me mad! 😨
Mum: Alice, run out of the house if you need to.
Alice: I can't. There's something alive in there and it's hurt.
Mum: GET OUT THE HOUSE ALICE. DO NOT TOUCH IT
Alice: Mum, tell me what this is.
Mum: I don't even know. 😯
Alice: Then I'm opening it. I can't wait two hours. This is torture. 😡
Mum: I'll be there in 5 mins. Just don't touch the box.
Alice: HELL NO! I'M OPENING IT
Mum: Alice! Don't touch the damn box! I'm warning you 😠
Alice: I don't give a crap Mum. I'm opening it.
Mum: ALICE
Alice: Ew wtf is this?
Mum: What?
Alice: IS THIS A BODY?! MUM WHAT ON EARTH DID YOU ORDER?
Mum: It's a fake. You don't understand.
Alice: I think I do. It's a dead body. This is NOT fake! It stinks! And why is there a loud ringing noise?
Mum: Leave the house.
Alice: Mum why can I now hear a baby screaming? This doesn't make sense!! 😨😨
Mum: GET OUT THE HOUSE
Alice: WHERE IS THERE A BABY CRYING AND WHY IS THERE A ROTTING BODY IN A BOX IN THE HOUSE?
Mum: It's doesn't matter.
Alice: I won't leave the house until you tell me what's going on.
Mum: And I won't say what's going on until you get out the house.
Alice: You've always been a liar Mum.
Mum: What do you mean?
Alice: The baby is now screaming French words. Good thing I study French at school, isn't it?
Mum: Al, this is all happening inside your head. I know who sent this and why they're doing this.
Alice: IT'S CALLING YOU A LIAR. TELL ME THE TRUTH MUM.
Mum: I'll be there in 10 mins. Need to go somewhere.
Alice: Where? WHY IS THIS MORE IMPORTANT THAN ME?
Mum: I need to fetch something for Mrs Shimone.
Alice: Liar.
Mum: Fine. You're just like your father.
Alice: Huh?
Mum: He always suspected me. All the way up to his death. Is the baby screaming liar at you now?
Alice: No. It's muttering stuff. Where is this baby? Why can I hear it but not see it? And you told me that Dad left you when you... had miscarriage. You said that he left you for some sexy French woman.
Mum: I can't believe you believed me. And that body? I thought I'd rid of it forever.
Alice: THAT BODY IS DAD?!
Mum: Yes you stupid child.
Alice: How could you?!
Mum: I sent the body to this strange woman who said she was the Devil. If she was allowed a body, I would be allowed to have another baby. I had a miscarriage, and I exposed her. She put a curse on me. And she's sent the body back.
Alice: You're the fool.
Mum: You'll regret that.
Alice: The baby. It's coming from the box. It's coming from Dad's body.
Mum: Wait... is it my baby?! She's alive?
Alice: Mum, you're mad.
Mum: SHUT UP. I WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER OFF IF YOU HAD DIED. YOU WERE JUST LIKE YOUR DAD.
Alice: Well. I searched the box. There's a baby in there. Right under the body. How has she survived?
Mum: MY BABY!
Alice: She's still speaking French.
Mum: She just wants Mummy!
Alice: 'Take me away'
Mum: WHAT?!
Alice: The police are here. The neighbours could smell the body. The baby can't speak French anymore.
Alice: Come home Mum. You can't hide.
