ISIS ISABEL

(speaking to Juliet as she steps out of the World Lit class) You writing stories like that is not going to garnish you any popularity prizes, Miss Black, particularly with the pure bloods.

JULIET

It is my choice.

SONNET SAUNDERS

(stepping in between Isis and Juliet snapping bubble gum) Well, whether it is your choice or not, girl, you are making the rest of us half-breeds look bad!


     The three halt in front of their street lockers.


JULIET

(opening her locker and shoving her books in) "Half-breed" is such a harsh term. I mean, I thought we were sticking to the term "impure"?

SONNET

(slamming her locker shut) Half-breed. Impure. . .It is all the damn same, damn!

ISIS

(also slamming her locker to pry) So, what is with the uber Gods? Since when did they take an interest in you?

JULIET

(shrugging her shoulders) I do not know?

ISIS

(mimicking) You do not know? What the hell does that mean?

JULIET

It means. . .I-DO-NOT-KNOW! Geesh!

SONNET

Oh, come now, Juliet. You were talking to them for almost five minutes!

JULIET

(remaining true to her word) It is nothing. I mean. . .they were just inquiring about my story. That is all. I mean. . .I mean. . .they are not that bad.


     Isis and Sonnet scrunch their faces in total confusion.


SONNET

(snorkeling) Not that bad? They are all creepy, if you ask me. I mean. . .especially with the way they look. . .like they were all genetically cloned-

ISIS

I agree! I mean, they all got that Splash hair thing going on. Not to mention they all have the exact same eye color, the same fair skin. And they all tend to talk and move the same way, too-

JULIET

(tone pitching, affronted) Oh, that is BS! Romeo is way taller than Petal and Flower!

SONNET

Of course he is! I mean, aside from his drop-dead gorgeous looks, it is the only thing that sets him apart. I mean. . .can you imagine if they were all the same height. . .I mean Romeo's like how tall?. . .6'0 feet or something? I mean, can you imagine all three being 6'0 feet?  Any taller they would all be freaking amazons!

ISIS

CLONED. . .amazons.
