TICK, TOCK, ARA, and CHLOE are at a diner, waiting to be served.
CHLOE: We are just throw away characters! We have no story!
ARA: Except Mellow Yellow, I guess. I was in Outside In for a very short period of time.
TICK and TOCK: So… are we here to organize your next debut?
CHLOE (nodding): Yes.
ARA: But I’m dead!
CHLOE: I could bring you back to life with true love’s kiss! And it’ll be with a sunset and flamingos and gummy worms and dramatic lighting.
ARA (Catching on): OOoooh with stars too! (bumping TOCK’s shoulder) I’ve heard that you make a great star.
TOCK: I guess I am
CHLOE: And since the sun IS a star, you can be the sun too!
TOCK: Wait. That won’t fit into the story… It’ll be too cheesy.
TICK: Not to mention the mouth to mouth tension.
ARA: We don’t have to debut in Downside Up. I mean, we can always go to Ned the Narwhal, right?
CHLOE: NEIGH! WE’LL BECOME HORSES!
ARA: So… not Ned the Narwhal. How about SOSP?
CHLOE: I do approve, but did you like my pun? It was hilarious! (Laughing at own joke)
ARA: What pun?
CHLOE smashes ARA into a conveniently placed brick wall
CHLOE (ugly crying): ARA! WHY DIDN’T YOU GET MY JOKE? HOW COULD YOU?
(starts eating Tic Tacs)
TICK and TOCK look at each other with questionable faces.
RUE walks up to the table sporting a suit and tie.
RUE (In a silent French accent): Hello, good madames! Here is what you ordered! (Puts down plates and plates of shrimp sticks, red velvet wall cake, and little pieces of LENA’s rotten baloney)
TICK: Thank you, waiter. As you see our guests are a bit… emotional no— (Goes to sleep) ZZZZZ
RUE shrugs and walks away.
Suddenly JAY rushes up to the table.
JAY: Sorry, I’m late! (gobbles up some shrimp) So… when and where is the new debut of ours?
TOCK: Haven’t decided. (Rolls eyes at ARA and CHLOE) And you actually have working emotions!
JAY: Yeah. I got them fixed by MANAGER OPPA. So when is the debut?
TOCK: They said they wanted it in Ned the Narwhal with a sunset, flamingos, gummy worms, dramatic lighting, and stars. Ara will come back to life with a true love’s kiss and you will probably just be awkwardly standing there, censoring the mouth to mouth tension.
JAY: What part of the story? How long are we in it?
TOCK: Maybe just a sentence. In the middle. I’ll type it up once I get home.
JAY, CHLOE, and ARA: JUST A SENTENCE!?
TOCK: It’s important to be a necessity to the plot.
CHLOE: What if we are the judge’s three children? And Ara is from Earth so she can’t marry me legally. But the judge wants me to be happy, but he cannot break the law, so he sends me to Earth! And then on Earth, we kiss in front of a sunset once finding each other on the vast land!
TICK (awake from her slumber): GREAT IDEA!
TOCK: That will definitely be written into the story!
CHLOE and ARA: Hooray!
JAY: What about me?
TICK (ignoring JAY): I guess it’s settled.
JAY: WHAT ABOUT MEEEEE?
*THis is AN Epilogue, oh WoW im sMarT*
TICK: So, Author, will Chloe, Ara, and Jay make a comeback?
LICORICE: (running away) AAAAAH! SOME EARTHLINGS ARE KISSING IN FRONT OF THE SUNSET! THEY ARE CAUSING A SCENE! UNICORNIA IS BREAKING!
TICK: Really? WHOA!
TOCK: (Taking TICK’s chin in her hand) I wonder if we kiss now if the whole world would implode!
LICORICE: DON’T DO IT!
The world becomes a black hole
AUTHOR: THE SHIP HAS FINALLY SAILED! (ship sails in distance)
JAY: They’re sisters remember!? The line that you put on that family tree was a mistake!
AUTHOR (with dread): What have I done?
