Ivan: (silent for a few seconds) You're... (tries not to laugh) you're kidding, right?
Chloe: I'm serious, Ivan. I am afraid to play basketball. Why else do you think I got this gap in my upper teeth?
Ivan: What?! I thought you told us from time to time that you got that gap because you took a bite out of a file hiding from inside your fifth birthday cake which was accidentally mixed up from a prisoner's cake.
Chloe: (sigh) I lied. I was afraid to tell the real truth about my gap. It all started way back in kindergarten.
(flashback to a five year old Chloe in kidnergarden; young Chloe making a huge and proud smile shown that she didn't get her gap yet)
Chloe: (voice) Being the confident, cheerful young lady that I still am now, I had a lot of confidence to play basketball and I never felt more proud of myself than ever.
(young Chloe playing basketball like a pro and the score was at 99 to 0)
Chloe: But all that changed when the rival team decided to play rough.
(the opposite team was angered and started to make things hard as they got more serious and started making scores crazy fast until it was a tie)
Chloe: It felt like as if they were trying to play nice for a little while until we antagonize them. And in that moment... (one of the players from the opposite team swing his arm and threw the ball and it was bouncing around the gym like crazy) ...the moment that that became one of the most tragic days of my life...
(the bouncing basketball was still bouncing around until in slow motion it was flying towards one of Chloe's teammates' face)
Young Chloe: (jumps in the way taking the hit) Noooo!!
(that his from Chloe's face made the basketball flew through the opposing team's goal scoring the team to 100, but no one in the audience was cheering as they were more concerned about the injured Chloe who gets up and uncovers her hands out of her mouth as it was open showing a crack in her upper teeth then the cracked upper teeth turned into a gap; everyone gasped, Clark and Connie stand up shocked, Connie panicked and dials the emergency number on her phone; Chloe sees her reflection in the shiny gym floor and noticed she now has a gap and was in tears)
(end of flashback)
Chloe: I didn't have any other option. I couldn't bear to see someone get hurt like that.
Ivan: Look, Chloe, sometimes bad things happen and sometimes there's nothing you can do to change that.
Chloe: I suppose.
Ivan: You don't have to play basketball if you don't want to. But the least you can do is support us.
Ivan: We'll be fine. Trust me. (kisses Chloe in the cheek and walks off)
