Amber ONE

Amber is walking around campus, and she sees a girl from behind. She jogs up and…

AMBER: Melissa!

 

MELISSA: (surprised, turns around quickly) Oh, Amber. Hi. What’s up?

 

AMBER: (looks embarrassed and looks down) I just wanted to talk to you for a minute.

 

MELISSA: Okay. Go for it.

 

AMBER: Well, I want you to know that I became a Christian last week.

 

MELISSA: That’s great! I am, too.

 

AMBER: Really?

 

MELISSA: Yep! And I have been for over ten years now.

 

AMBER: Oh, that’s awesome. But I want to apologize to you for something I did…

 

MELISSA: What?

 

AMBER: (nervous) Well… I… (in a rush) was the one who wrote that bad comment about you on the paper!

 

MELISSA: (recoils in surprise) YOU? But… why? None of that stuff was actually true!

 

AMBER: I feel I have been competing with you for years.

 

MELISSA: Really? That’s news to me! True, we haven’t been the best of friends, but I never knew you were COMPETING with me.

 

AMBER: Well ever since you got Zack Clifton to date you…

 

MELISSA: Zack Clifton?! What was that, like in the eighth grade? Wow!

 

AMBER: I guess that just made me resentful and then I always knew your grades were always just a little better than mine. It festered inside me and that’s why I posted that comment and said all those nasty things about you. You might find it hard to believe, but I am sorry I did that to you.

 

MELISSA: Uhh, I really wish you HADN’T written those things. But I’ve talked with the dean, and a couple of teachers, and they know I didn’t do what I was accused of. This will all blow over. I do forgive you. Just… please don’t do that again!

 

AMBER: I won’t! I don’t know what came over me to do that. So, how are you able to just forgive me like that?

 

MELISSA: I know how much God has forgiven me. Who am I to then not forgive others? This situation is very much like the parable that Jesus told in Matthew 18:23-35.

 

AMBER: I’m still new at this… I haven’t read that yet.

 

MELISSA: Well I had class in a few minutes, but spiritual matters always take precedence. Do you want to go to the student union with me and discuss that parable and some more of the Bible?

 

AMBER: I would LOVE to… friend.

They change the direction they were walking and the scene fades out.
