Two sisters who haven’t seen one another try to patch up their relationship in this drama scene taken from one-act eplay, Four Summers Ago.
EVANDRA: Who’s drunk? I’m not drunk. Where am I drunk?
SALENE: I’m going to—
EVANDRA: No! Stay outside here with me and let’s talk calmly. K?
SALENE: I don’t want another dumb argument.
EVANDRA: Fine. No dumb arguments…deal. (pause.) Why did you call me a failure?
SALENE: I don’t even remember.
EVANDRA: I do. Clear as day, I do.
SALENE: We call each other names all the time.
EVANDRA: This was different. This was extra.
EVANDRA: This was seasoned. You added some spice on top of what was served.
SALENE: Like I said, I’m sure you—
EVANDRA: Think back and tell me the truth. Please, please, someone in this family needs to speak some Goddamn truth before I melt away and die.
SALENE: Whenever anyone ever tries to tell you something openly and honestly, you can’t handle it.
EVANDRA: Because it’s always with a vengeance.
SALENE: Whoever said truth was easy?
EVANDRA: Why did you sucker punch me on the phone, four summers ago?
SALENE: Was it four summers ago?
SALENE: …Damn you, Evandra…you weren’t there for me when I needed you most.
EVANDRA: When did you need me most?
