Charlie and Jody are at Jody's apartment. They are not dating anymore because of the hectic schedule.

"Charlie. I, uh..:" Jody spoke, tears welling up in her eyes. "I, I.."

"Jody? What's the matter?' he said rushing to hold her.

"Charlie please don't."

"What, I can't hold you? Since when?"

"I don't deserve it Charlie, I don't deserve you."

"Jody I-"

"I have to go." Jody runs out of the room crying. Charlie is confused and rises to leave as

well, but when getting up he sees something on the table. He walks over to it. Picks it up.

"A pregnancy test..."

Later-

Jody has just returned from rehearsals and discovers Charlie is still there, holding

her secret.

"I thought you'd gone."

"Why didn't you tell me."

"Because it's not your responsibility, and I understand. I understand if you don't want to

see me anymore."

"Jody I wouldn't just..just."

"It's all right Charlie. You don't have to say anything. Just leave. I need to be alone" she said gently. Charlie walked to the door and opened it.

"This doesn't make me love you any less you know." And the door shut.

"How am I gonna tell Cooper?"

THE NEXT DAY:

Walking into the rehearsal hall Jody caught Cooper's eye.

"Jody!"

"Hi. um, Cooper, do you have a minute?"

"For you, of course." The walked outside of the room into the hall. Jody bit her lip in fear.

"What's up?" he asked.

"Well, uh.I'm, I'm late and-"

"Oh don't worry about it , we were running behind anyway."

"No, I mean, I'm LATE." She whispered Silence. Cooper stared at her intently.

"Oh." He said quietly. The tears that had been rising in Jody's eyes began to trickle down her cheeks.

"Oh Jody." Cooper said, going to hold her. "Jody, it's all right."

"What?" she replied looking up at him.

"It's okay." he brushed hair out of her eyes.

"Your not mad, you-"

"This doesn't make me love you any less"

"What?" she said in shock.

"Do you really feel like rehearsing today? You could uh.. take the day off if you want." "Really" "I really should work on music and background today anyway."

"All right." Cooper turned to return to the rehearsal room. "I love you. Ya know?" he said staring at the floor. Silence.

He walked in the room the door closing behind him. "Yeah... I know."
