[Kallo and Holly walk to the swings]

Kallo: Here i’ll push you.

Holly: You're so predictable (she says with a smirk)

Kallo: What do you mean “i’m predictable?”

Holly: Remember when we were children, you would always push me even when I told you not to.

Kallo: Yeah, I remember and I also remember that whenever we played tag you’d always push me down instead of tap me and i’d chase you for a while, then i’d get tired.

Holly: You couldn't catch me no matter how hard you tried (she says as she laughs).

Kallo: Yeah and remember when your dog leroy got caught by the dog catcher?

Holly: (sad tone) yeah, I was so angry at him for doing that, but we got him back. Leroy was a good dog.

Kallo: Hey, it’s alright; the things you love will always be in your heart.

Holly: (wiping her eyes) That's just like you Kallo.

Kallo: What do you mean?

Holly: Making me feel better even when i’m sad, you know… you did the same thing when we were little.

HollY: (thinks) Kallo sometimes I wish we could go back to when we were kids, me and you just had so much fun together. When did you change.

Kallo: Yeah I know.

HollY: (sprints off towards the pond).

Kallo: Holly!

[Kallo tries to catch her]

Holly: Oh, sorry.

Kallo: It's ok we all can get lost in our own thoughts, so what did you want to ask me?

Holly: How come you never come and play with me and our friends like we used to?

Kallo: (Thinks)...Well Holly to tell you the truth, I…

Holly: (Tearing up) Yeah?

Kallo: I miss those days, but we’re getting to the point in our lives where we must choose what we want to do with the rest of our lives, and i’ve been looking at possible careers that i might want to do in the near future and i’ve just been bookmarking them and studying up on them.

Holly: Cool, glad your thinking of the future Kallo.

Kallo: Thanks Holly.

Yashi: Well we’re here.

Lucy: Wow this clocktower is larger than the one back home.

Holly: So you said earlier that you were planning for the future, and I know you want a good job, but what would the job you want require?

Kallo: I want to be a chemist and that requires me to go to college and get my bachelors degree, and I was thinking about going to this real nice college, but there's just one thing.

Holly: What?

Kallo: I would have to move.

Holly: (Thinks) Why Kallo, why would you leave I need you. You don't care for me you just care about your own stupid future well what about my future, you’d leave me here alone and not give a care in the world. (In tears) Fine go ahead and leave see if I care.

Holly: (Cries)

Kallo: I'm with you to the end.

Holly: (gasps)(Thinks) He remembers.

Holly: (In tears) But I thought you wanted to go to that nice college you were talking about, I thought you were gonna leave me here alone.

Kallo: It's ok i'm here for you.

{Kallo looks at the stars and started singing a song his mother sang to him before bed}

{When you wish upon a star

It makes no difference who you are

Anything your heart desires

Will come to you

If you're heart is in your dream

No request is too extreme

When you wish upon a star

Your true love will find where you are}

Holly: (Shocked) Kallo?

Kallo: Yes Holly?

Holly: That was beautiful.

Kallo: Thank you, my mother used to sing it to me.

Kallo: It gave me hope that id find someone to be with.

Holly: It gives me hope too.

Kallo: I'm sorry.

Holly: For what?

Kallo: For putting you through this I didn't mean to make you upset.
