#373: The price of being the best - 2015-06-23
Eliana: Mom! I need to ask you for a big favor!
Clara: What's going on, Eliana? And why the backpack? Are you going somewhere?
Eliana: I need to flee from this place! Andrea has to repeat the year! I don't want her dad to come pester me because of his daughter!
Clara: Well, you wanted to play teacher with your classmates! Now face the consequences!
Eliana: But you don't know Andrea! She's a slowpoke and a dimwit!
Eliana: Neither María, nor Mr. Salinas, nor Ms. Pizarro could take a perfect grade out of the stone she has for a brain! Only I could!
BUT I DON'T WANT!
Clara: Now you don't want, after doing substitutions at like five schools.
Eliana: But it's not the same! I teach the same things to the whole class, but this is a personal issue! I don't want to have to explain things to that retard like she was five!
Clara: You know, I don't care any more. Go away, if you want! You have been able to take care of yourself since forever anyway!
Eliana: So... you're letting me go!? Thank you, Mom! You're taking an immense burden off my shoulders!
Clara: Yeah! You already took that decision anyway, and I can't stop you even if I wanted. Bye.
Clara: You too, Pedro? Go if you wish, you have my permission! Everyone has my permission! Just leave me alone!
Pedro: But I didn't want to leave...!
Pedro: ...I wanted to invite my friends to the house!
Clara: BUT YOU LOOK AFTER THEM!
Ximena: ELIANA! WE NEED YOU HELP WITH UTMOST URGENCY!
Eliana: Oh, no!
Ximena: YOU ARE OUR ONLY HOPE!
