Sometimes the best Christmas gifts aren't under the Christmas tree.  Sometimes it lies within our hearts.


Excerpt

Act Three
Scene One

Candy is sleeping on the sofa. Tracy and Penny are sitting next to her. Toby, Amy, and Janet enter through the front door. The telephone is on the arm of the sofa, next to Penny.

Amy
We were on our way home from the dance center. We heard about the car accident over the radio. Itís all over the news.

Toby
We were scared because the location they described was right in front of your house.

Janet
The news said that a young, teen-age, male was driving and he only received minor injuries. They couldnít release his name, because of his age. They couldnít release the name of the critically injured teen-age girl either until her family was notified. What happened?

Tracy
Allison left Willy in her car with the car keys; listening to the radio. Willy decided to go for a joy ride. Tammy, not knowing that Willy took off in the car, went out side to wait with him.

Tracy becomes too emotional to continue. She covers her face with both hands. Penny puts her arm around Tracyís shoulder.




Excerpt:

Penny slowly places the phone on the receiver. Her thoughts are far away. She just sits there, not bothering to look at the other girls; who are anxiously waiting to find out about Tammyís condition.

Amy
(speaking to Penny)
What?

Penny
(snaps out of her trance)
Oh, that was Allison.

Tracy
We know that.

Penny
There is no change. Tammy is still unconscious. Sheís in surgery. Her condition is still critical but stable.
(pause)
Willy collapsed in the waiting room. He has a serious concussion and heís very upset about the accident. The doctor is keeping him over night for observations.

Toby
I canít believe this is happening. Itís so creepy. Itís like a bad dream.





Candy
(crying)
But itís not a bad dream. Tammy was on the ground bleeding. Iím scared!

Tracy holds Candy in her arm and tries to comfort her. All of the girls are teary eyed. There is not a dry eye in the room. Toby takes the lead singing and all the other girls join in the chorus.

All
(singing)

Oh, Tammy
Tammy, Tammy, Tammy
Donít leave us
Donít leave us, please, donít leave us
We need you
We need you, how we need you
And love you
Oh, Tammy, how we love you

Oh, Tammy, hold on; hold on to life
Please, donít go away
Oh, Tammy, hold on, hold on to life
Please, please, try to stay
Give your mommy and daddy
Another happy day

Youíve got to be strong
Youíve got to hold on
Youíve got to keep faith
when all else has gone
Here take my hand; my strength
is your strength
Hold on to hope, for you Iíll be strong
I will be strong

Tammy, hold on, Tammy, be strong
I pray for you now, tonight, tomorrow

Youíve got to be strong
Youíve got to hold on
Please, lean on me




Excerpt:

Willy, I donít think dad wanted you to say as much as you just did.

Willy
I know, but, Iím glad dad got them to take the check. It wonít help Tammy walk again, but it makes me feel better knowing that we can help; and Tammy would be taken care of for the rest of her life.
(pause)
I feel so terrible about what I did to her. The judge only gave me probation and community services. Tammy gets to pay for the rest of her life.

Allison
We know you feel terrible about what happened, Willy, but it was an accident. You have been paying for that accident every day since it happened. Little brother, itís time you stop beating yourself up.

Candy
Allison, are you and Willy still seeing that shrink?

Penny
Candy, that is not a nice way to put it; itís called a psychiatrist.

Candy
Well, if he gets inside your head and shrinks out all the bad stuff, heís a shrink.

Penny
What?

Candy
The shrink. He gets inside your head and shrinks out all the bad stuff. Then, he pushes it in this tiny little room in your brain and locks it there so it canít get out. Thatís why heís called a shrink.
