Scene shifts back to the cave.
MICHAELA: What do you mean you killed her?
ZEKE: I was 15. I thought I was too old to come camping with my family. Chloe wasn’t allowed to go to the ravine, so I said I would take her. But then then I got a phone call from some girl I barely knew. I should’ve said, “I’ll call you back in an hour,” but I was stupid and selfish. And I told my little sister, “Stop bugging me. I’m on the phone.” Those were the last words I ever said to her. Less than an hour later, they pulled her dead body up. There’s a memorial in her honor where she died, but I’ve never had the guts to go see it let alone tell my parents what I did. I destroyed my entire family. I’ve never told anyone. [SNIFFLES] And it is eating me alive with guilt.
ZEKE: No. P-Please, don’t don’t do that. Don’t try to tell me it wasn’t my fault.
MICHAELA: No, it was. It was your fault. My best friend was killed in a car accident. I was driving, and I had I’d been drinking. So, yeah, no matter what the world wants to tell me, it was my fault.
ZEKE: So, how do you move forward?
MICHAELA: Step 5.
ZEKE: I think I might know what this voice wants. Maybe I’m supposed to go back to Chloe’s memorial, to where she died.
