Scene 3/ Part 1
Narrator 2: Della has the money now, what about Jim? Does he have enough money to buy Della a gift?
Della 3 & Jim are in the middle of the stage, not facing each other.
In the background, a song is played “Believe again.” Della & Jim turn and dance together. The song fades away.
Della & Jim walk in two different directions…
Shop-keeper 1: Good evening, madam. How can I help you?
Della 3: I want to buy a gift for my husband and I saw a platinum watch chain two weeks ago. Do you still have it?
Shop-keeper: You mean the one that the young man is holding.
Della 3 (turns around and looks at him): Yes, it is.
Della 3 (walks towards the young man): Excuse me, sir. Can I have the chain, please?
Young man 1: Sorry, lady. I saw it first and I want to give it to my grandfather on Christmas. It really suits him.
Della 3: Please, sir. It’s so important to me… Please.
(She starts crying.)
Shop-keeper 1: Sir, give it to her please. I have other collections. I will show them to you.
The young man hesitantly gives the watch chain to Della.
She holds it and runs happily in the street.
