(Emily's Aunt, Ella, and her cousins Maddy and Carmine arrive home.)
Ella: Emily! We’re home! Maddy: Netball was cancelled; the coach was sick. Carmine: Did you see the car crash?! Maddy:: It’s in our street! Carmine: There was a truck smashed right into a car! Emily: I know. I saw it happen. Carmine: Really? Was it huge? Emily: Pretty big, yeah. Ella: Go get changed, girls. You saw it? Do you know if anyone was very badly hurt? Emily: The truck driver was fine, I think. The driver of the car died. Ella: Oh my god! Are you sure? I only heard both drivers were taken to hospital. Emily: He definitely died. I... I was holding his hand. Ella: Oh my god! You were? Are you ok? Emily: I’m fine. It’s nothing new, is it? Ella: Oh, Emily, are you sure? Emily: Yeah. Honestly. Ella: ... Well, don’t forget to talk to me if you need to, ok? Emily: Ok. Ella: And now you’d better get out of your school uniform. Emily: Ok. ...Ella? Ella: Yes? Emily: Thank you.
