SCENE OPENS on a teen, Nancy (Elena Koshka), taking a home pregnancy test. She's impatiently holding the stick in her hand. She taps her fingers against it with nervous anticipation as she mutters to it to come on and work faster. Her breathing is quick, panicked and shallow, and she even starts hyperventilating for several seconds and has to calm herself down by taking deep, controlled breaths. Once she's calmed herself down, she looks back down at the stick and sees two lines appear on the small display.
Suddenly she's interrupted by a knock on the door, and the voice of her step-father, Frank (Steve Holmes). He asks if anyone's in there. Nancy's eyes widen and she quickly tries to hide the evidence of the test as she says that yes, she's in here -- she grabs the stick and the small cardboard box it came in and hides them behind her back, and flushes the toilet. It's just in the nick of time, as Frank tells her that he's late for an interview and he hopes she's done in there because he's coming in.
The door opens, and Nancy tries to act like everything's normal. She and Frank awkwardly brush past each other, his hands accidentally grazing against her body, as he moves towards the sink and she moves to get out of the bathroom without him seeing the test in her hands. He fidgets with his hair in front of the mirror and asks Nancy how he looks. Nancy looks away from him, the question clearly bothering her, and she mutters 'You look fine.' He tells her he has a good feeling about today, this is his first 2nd interview for a company. This could be the end of their troubles. Nancy sneaks a look at the pregnancy test in her hand. 'Yeah, Frank,' she says flatly, 'sure it could...' Frank gives his step-daughter a quick kiss, then exits the bathroom -- he's off to get this job.
Once he's gone, she has flashbacks to when she had sex with both her step-father and her step-father's ex-boss. She clutches the pregnancy box test in her hand so hard it starts to crumple in her hand as she sinks down along the wall and starts crying.
