        (The woman is in her 30s, a little drunk, with a baseball cap and clothing slightly askew.  She is bewildered, but getting angry, holding a drink)

Now the four of us....we been friends a long time.....since we met on the team, how old were we? Eight, nine?  and here we are, together again, for a weekend....we try to do this every year, to catch up, almost as good as batter up.....but now, no jokes, because.....this is serious....

        (She looks at the others, takes a drink)

Okay, so here it is, our friend is dead, and ...the way I see of us is.....I'm sorry, I have trouble saying it.....(takes a deep breath) one of us killed her.

There, that actually sounded worse than I thought it would!

          (She takes a big drink and shakes her head)

Whooo, remind me not to mix kahlua and vodka......not pretty.....not pretty at all....

And we have to wait until the police come tomorrow, when the roads clear.....but which of us did it?  I know I didn't.....

          (The others protest neither did they)

But everyone is innocent in prison.....I found that out when I interned at the Public Defender's this is really of you is a killer, my best friends forever, and I don't know if I can trust's like everything I believed, isn't true......the only thing scarier would be if my mother walked in and told me I was adopted, but that's not gonna happen, because, one,

        (She counts on her fingers, but very sloppy)

....the roads are closed, two, even if the roads were open, my mother wouldn't be caught dead in the mountains, and three, my mother is dead....

        (She holds up her fingers and looks at them)

Three strikes.....we're out......

        (Lights down.  End of scene)
