Aaron (and Rachael)
Aaron sits at the window. Rachael takes the seat beside him.
Rachael: (combing her wet hair back with her fingers) Whew, is it ever raining out there!
Aaron: Great day, isn’t it?
Rachael: Sure, if you’re a duck.
Aaron: Or if you’re me. I’m going to see my kids.
Rachael: Been a while?
Aaron: Yeah. My ex has been keeping them away from me. The whole lawyer thing, you know. I’m finally seeing them for the first time in a year.
Rachael: You must be excited.
Aaron: I am. One of them just had an operation.
Rachael: Oh dear. Nothing too serious I hope.
Aaron: Nah. He was just neutered.
Rachael: Wait… I thought you said they were your kids…
Aaron: They are.
Rachael: Oookaaay… (nods slowly and looks away)
