It's going around...

EXT.  WALKING HOME FROM SCHOOL - AFTERNOON

ME
How was your day?  How are you feeling Sark?

SARK
Good.

ME
Henry is sick today too.  Both your buds out sick today, Henry and Lilli.

SARK
Yeah.

SASHA
Yeah... it’s going around.  But I already had it.

I look at Sasha in surprise.

ME
You already had it?

SASHA
(matter of fact)
Yeah.  I already had it.

ME
In August?

SASHA
Yeah.  You know, five people in my class were out sick with it today.

She holds up her mini hand with five fingers outstretched.

ME
But you already had it.  Three months ago?

SASHA
Yeah.  I think I’m safe, but Sark better watch out.  It’s going through the whole school.
