LUCY

I bet you were wondering what I’m doing here in the middle of the night. Well, I thought I should introduce myself. My name is Lucy. Lucy Elenore Moderatz. I think you should know that your family thinks we’re engaged. I’ve never been engaged before. This is very sudden for me. What I really came here to tell was that I didn’t mean for this to happen. I don’t know what to do. If you were awake, I wouldn’t be in this mess. Oh God, not that I’m blaming you. I’m sorry. It’s just that when I was a kid, I always imagined what I would be like or what I would have when I got older. And you know, it was normal stuff. I’d have a house and a family and things like that. It’s not that I’m complaining or anything, because I do have a cat. I have an apartment. I have a sole possession of a remote control. That’s very important. It’s just that I’ve never met anybody that I could laugh with. Do you believe in love at first site? I bet you don’t. You’re probably too sensible for that. Or have you ever seen somebody and you know, that if that person really knew you, they’d dump the perfect model that they were with and realize that you were the one that they wanted to grow old with? Have you ever fallen in love with somebody that you haven’t even talked to? Have you ever been so alone that you spend the night confusing a man in a coma?
