Scene 1: The Bowtin's house
(The phone rings and Silas answers the phone)
Silas: Hello, who is this?
Nurse: I am a nurse that is calling from the hospital
Silas: How may I help you today, ma'am?
Nurse: Is your name Silas Bowtin?
Silas: Yes, my name is indeed Silas Bowtin
Nurse: A prisoner by the name of Zoey Broderick was admitted into the hospital. Zoey had been complaining of having extreme painful contractions. She gave me your phone number hoping I could get in touch with you.
Silas: I thank you for the update
Nurse: I will talk to you later, goodbye
Silas(hanging up the phone): goodbye
Nancy(walking into the kitchen): Who was on the phone?
Silas(putting on his jacket): A nurse from the hospital called me
Nancy: So what?
Silas: I have to go to the hospital right now because Zoe is in labor
Nancy: It is very possible for Zoe to get raped in jail. Are you sure that the baby is yours and not another man's baby?
Silas: The baby was definitely a surprise, it just happen. I am definitely the baby's father, trust me.
Nancy: I am surprised that they would allow you to be at the hospital for the birth.
Silas: Zoey is black and I know that we are going to have ourselves a biracial baby. I am still going to be apart of my son's life no matter what.
Nancy: You are only eighteen, remember?
Silas: I share a special connection with Zoey because I met her in rehab
Nancy: I give you permission to be with Zoey
Silas(walking out of the front door): Goodbye, mom
Scene 2: The Hospital
(Silas encounters two guards standing out of Zoey's hospital room)
Guard One: Mister, who are you?
Silas: I am Zoey's baby daddy
Guard Two: You better get to Zoey because she is about to drop a baby at any moment
Silas(walking into the room): I thank you for the update
Scene 3: Inside Zoey's hospital room-Zoey is giving birth
Zoey(in the mist of having a contraction): I thank you so much for coming to the hospital
Silas (squeezing Zoey's hand): No problem
Zoey(having another contraction, she screams as she grabs hold of Silas): AHA..AHA..AHA
Silas(holding Zoey very tightly): I'm here for you, Zoe, I am going nowhere
The Obgyn(to Zoey): Zoey, don't push too hard
Zoey: Why not?
The Obgyn: The baby's shoulders are stuck
Zoey(panicky): Will my son be alright?
The Obgyn(trying to pull the baby out of Zoe): Your son will be alright, trust me
Zoey(overcome with pain and pressure, she screams as she begins to cry): AHA..AHA..AHA
The Obgyn(giving the baby to Zoe to hold): Here is your beautiful son, Zoey
Zoey(sobbing as she holds her son): I love you, my sweet Noel
Silas(crying, he kisses Zoey): I love you
Scene 4: The next day Silas pays a visit to Zoey and baby Noel in jail.
Scene: The Fellowship Room
Zoey(giving Noel to Silas to hold): Do you want to hold the baby?
Silas(holding Noel): Yes of course
Zoey: I wonder who in the world knew that I would be in jail and have a baby
Silas: By the way, how are you holding up?
Zoey: I have enrolled myself in a parenting program
Silas: I am so very proud of you
Zoey: I have very so limited resources here in jail. I don't know how long I can raise Noel on my own.
Silas: You can allow me to keep Noel for once
Zoey: I don't know
Silas: You need to take into consideration Noel's best interest at heart.
Zoey: I already do that sort of thing
Silas: So what is the problem?
Zoey: I don't want Noel to grow up to be a criminal just like me by selling illegal drugs.
Silas: So what is your game plan?
Zoey: I love Noel and yet I know I can't keep him forever. He is better off living with you instead of living with me here in jail. I have terminated my paternal rights if it will make you happy.
(Baby Noel then cooes making Silas and Zoey to laugh for once in their lives)
Scene 5: Six months later-The Bowtin's house-the nursery
(Silas is changing Noel's dirty diaper when a crying Nancy enters the nursery bearing bad news)
Silas(choked up): Whats wrong, mom?
Nancy(crying): I have received word from the jail that Zoey is dead. She had died earlier this morning and she sends her love.
Silas(doubtful): No way
Nancy(still crying): She had breast cancer
Silas(shocked): I never knew that she had breast cancer
Nancy(sobbing): Zoey Ginger Broderick was truly an angel although I didn't like her very much
Silas(crying): I don't know what I am going to do without her
Nancy(embracing Silas): I am sorry for your loss
(Baby Noel then cooes making Silas and Nancy smile for once)
