Jenny and Luke play with their toys throughout the entire conversation.
Jenny: Hey, Luke. I’m glad you could come over and play. I can share my dolly with you.
Luke: No thanks, Jenny. Do you have any trucks I can play with?
Jenny: Yeah, I have this one that I used to play with in my sandbox. Hands truck to Luke.
Luke: Gee, thanks!
Jenny: So, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Luke: I don’t know. Maybe a police.
Jenny: Did you say a priest?
Luke: No! I said a po-lice. Make a police car siren noise.
Jenny: Oh, well maybe God wants you to be priest someday, just like Father Peter. I think you’d be a cool priest. You’re lots of fun and you’d make the people in church laugh.
Luke: I don’t know. Maybe.
Jenny: Can you guess what I wanna be when I grow up?
Luke: A teacher?
Jenny: No, I wanna be a mom, just like my mom. She’s awesome! And I wanna marry someone just like my daddy. You know, my mom and dad love each other.
Luke: They do?
Jenny: Yeah, they kiss each other a lot, and they go out on dates, and my daddy buys my mom flowers, and they hold hands and they pray together, too.
Luke: That’s cool. I’ve never seen my mom and dad pray.
Jenny: Well, you should tell them to pray because it will help them love each other more. And, you should pray for your mom and dad, too.
Luke: Ya, that’s a good idea Jenny.
Luke’s mom: Voice in background. Luke! Luke! It’s time to go now! Say bye to Jenny.
Luke: Bye, Jenny.
Jenny: Bye, Luke.
Someone carries a sign across the stage and reads it out loud for the audience: “25 years later.”
Older Jenny (dressed in a nun costume) walks across the stage, while Older Luke walks across stage from opposite side and accidentally bumps into Jenny.
Jenny: Oh, I’m so sorry. Stops and pauses. Luke, is that you?
Luke: Jenny Anderson? Is that really you?
Jenny: It’s been so long? What have you been up to these past 25 years?
Luke: Well, I’m happily married with a lovely wife, 2 children and 1 more baby on the way. And what about you?
Jenny: Well, you never know what God can do when you’re open to His plan for your life. It’s a long story, but here I am. People now call me Sr. Teresa. I’ve never been so happy in all my life. I leave for Mexico next week to help teach some of the poor people who live there.
Luke: Wow Sr. Teresa! That’s great! So good to see you again. My family will be sure to pray for you in your mission and vocation.
Jenny: And, I’ll be sure to lift up your family in prayer. Say hi to your wife and kids for me. May God bless you! Both Jenny (Sr. Teresa) and Luke exit scene.
