Kyle meets Scarlet during detention and the two take an instant liking of one another in this teen drama one-act play, Thin Ice.
KYLE: You ever listen to blues?
SCARLET: I’ve heard of it but I’ve never really listened to it before.
KYLE: You should come with me one night and check it out.
SCARLET: I’m down.
KYLE: Maybe this Friday if you want. We can take that lousy train in.
SCARLET: The train isn’t that bad.
KYLE: Maybe it’ll be better when I’m not by myself.
SCARLET: You’ll have someone to talk to.
KYLE: Sounds good.
SCARLET: And what else?
KYLE: What else what?
SCARLET: What else does a Queens boy like yourself do for fun?
KYLE: I read.
KYLE: Yeah, does that make me a nerd or something?
SCARLET: Quite the opposite actually. What do you read, comic books?
KYLE: Not really…I have a collection of them but I’ve never read one before…I read literature.
SCARLET: Literature…fancy word.
KYLE: Well, novels, short stories, plays, travel guides, anything that kinda gets my mind thinking.
SCARLET: You surprise me.
KYLE: Do I?
SCARLET: Never took you for a reader.
SCARLET: I don’t know…the guys who read either seem too loud or too quiet…
KYLE: Yeah, well, you can’t really judge someone you don’t really know.
SCARLET: I’m not. I won’t.
KYLE: Do you?
SCARLET: Oh- No, Not much. Not for my own pleasure…Maybe you could recommend something to me?
KYLE: I have a little library of stuff, I can lend you something if you want.
