Lily: I don't even recognize myself.

Ian: Strange isn't it?

Lily: Very... Is it safe?  Seeing myself like this?  I mean if she sees me will it change something... Will it change me?

Ian: Isn't that what you want?

Lily: What?

Ian: Isn't that why we are here?

Lily: Is it?  I can't remember how we got here.

Ian: You made a wish.

Lily: You like my fairy godfather of something?

Ian: Something like that ... Remember your wish?

Lily: Something happened to me as a child... Something terrible...

Ian: And it's about to happen to her...

Lily: (Upset) This is that time?

Ian: To the day.

(Girl exits)

Lily: We have to get her out of here... We have to keep her safe... We can't let it happen again.

Ian: That's why we are here.

Lily: I'm trying to remember... Trying to remember how it happened... I don't know how I can stop it ...

Ian: Calm down... Think.

Lily: Right... It's so hard... The memories still haunt me... They frighten me as badly as they did back then... Back now... Can I really change this?  Is it possible?

Ian: That's why we are here ... Go save her... Save yourself.

(She starts to go... Runs a little then stops. She turns)

Lily: Who are you?

Ian: Your fairy godfather.

Lily: No... That's what I said... Who are you really?

Ian: Does it matter?  

Lily: Yes

Ian: Why? If I can grant you your most secret wish ... Does it really matter who I am?  As long I can help?

Lily: Is this a trick?  

Ian: How can fixing the one thing... The one moment that hurt you the most... Be a trick?

Lily: I don't know...

Ian: You're wasting time... It's going happen again... It's going to happen to that innocent little girl again ... And hurt her... So badly... Take her away... Save her...

Lily: It's you... It's you, isn't it?!

Ian: Please take her!  Take her before it happens again!

(He exits)

Lily: No!

(She runs out)
