SCENE OPENS with Kylie (Maya Kendrick) pacing around the bathroom. She looks truly frazzled and distraught, a cell phone clutched tightly in her hand. As Kylie paces, she experiences jarring flashbacks to an event that is clearly traumatic for her. Between the flashes, Kylie looks more and more upset, holding her head and cursing to herself. She keeps looking at something in her hand. Her world is clearly falling apart. She finally brings the phone to her ear, making a phone call.’Something happened. W-we need to talk,’ Kylie says, anguished.
Back in the present day, Kylie tells her father about being pregnant. He insists on calling a friend to ‘set up an appointment.’ It takes a few moments for Kylie to realize what he’s implying. She protectively puts her arms over her stomach, refusing. Furious, he rages at her and kicks her out, saying that she’s 18, so she can make her own way…but not in HIS house!
Later that day, a desperate Kylie goes to the home of Austin’s father, Mr. Grayson (Eric Masterson), looking for Austin, but is told that he ran away. Kylie is scared again, nervously eyeing Mr. Grayson. She tentatively tells Mr. Grayson that she’s pregnant, flinching away as if she’s afraid Mr. Grayson will react as harshly as her father. Mr. Grayson is shocked by the news, though the shock quickly passes, as though he expected nothing less from Austin. Mr. Grayson gently hugs Kylie, trying to comfort her in a genuine way.
Kylie reveals that she’s been kicked out of her house and has nowhere else to go. Mr. Grayson offers to take her in, sympathetic to her plight and feeling as though he failed as a father. Kylie is suspicious of Mr. Grayson’s offer, though is tempted. Mr. Grayson insists that he’s attracted to her, and that he’ll take care of her in exchange for having sex with him.
Kylie is very reluctant to have sex, but Mr. Grayson continues to convince her until she finally decides to go ahead with it, intent on providing a secure future for her little one.
Mr. Grayson is going to take care of Kylie from now on, but first she has to take care of HIM.
