MUBBA: "Um, you guys look upset. Did I do something?"
TASLI: "We had this---why'd you have to get a grown-up involved!?"
MUBBA: "I-I'm sorry; I was afraid!"
GENE: "Still not cool, Mubba"
MUBBA: "Are we still friends?"
TASLI (to Gene): "What say you?"
GENE (to Mubba): "Where there is no trust, there is no friendship"
MIMI: "If that's true, we broke friendship first---none of us went back to help after he fell from the basket"
TASLI: "If we had, our attack would've been spoiled!"
MIMI: "Was the skateboard more important?"
MUBBA (sobbing): "I'm sorry I messed everything up. If you like the skateboard, you can have it. We don't even have to be friends---just maybe, please, play with me once in a while, or not make fun of me so much. Would that be ok?"
GENE: "Keep the skateboard---we offered our friendship before we knew about it"
TASLI: "And if you want someone to play with you, go back to the wolves---they like chew toys!"
MIMI: "Shut up, Tasli! How could you say something like that!?"
MUBBA: "It's ok. I should go home now"
MIMI: "Let's go; I'll walk with you"
MUBBA (wiping away tear): "Really? Why?"
MIMI: "Because I'd like to be your friend..."
MIMI (continuing; to Gene): "You know, Gene, I expect such rudeness from Tasli, but not from you. I'm surprised, and I don't like it!"
(Tasli looks at Gene; Gene glances back at Tasli, then to Mimi/Mubba)
GENE (unsure how to reply; to Mubba): "I guess we had a bad start?"
TASLI (walking away): "Yeah. See you 'round, Mubba"
*Mimi and Mubba walk away together, as Gene follows Tasli*
...Well, that was ambiguous, and not what I'd call a cheerful resolution ...but at least the comic's over! :D
Mubba, perhaps, should toughen up a bit? I'm sure, either way, he will meet Gene and Tasli again ...some day. :3
