There they all go. I,err… I should leave too. Maybe I’ll just lie down for a little while.


Sol

Wait. Before you go... What was all that?


Marcia

Huh? E-err… I don’t really know what you’re talking about. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m tired, so I think I’ll-


Sol

No, no, look. I… I need to know. Was it something I did? The two of us were talking, and all of a sudden it was like you became a whole different person, and… it was kind of scary… Did I upset you?


Marcia

No... No, of course you didn’t upset me. I just…


Marcia

*sigh* Look… This is really hard to talk about for me...


Marcia

I... Do things I’m not proud of sometimes. Not always. I mean, usually I’m just me, right? Happy-go-lucky Marcia, I guess...

Marcia

Well, yeah, but… It’s not as if I can just snap out of it with no issue. It’s… a lot more complicated than you’re making it out to be… I just need you, and everyone else to work with me here. If everyone’s just happy and being normal, then I’ll be fine. I don’t want to be making you all miserable, so it’s… It’s up to you guys.


Sol

That’s… How can we be expected to take responsibility for your actions if you can’t!? Marcia, shouldn’t you-


Marcia

It can’t be done, alright!? You don’t think I’ve TRIED to fix my shitty self!? If it could be done, I would have had it solved a long time ago. I’m not an idiot.


Sol

I never said you were, I-
