Lawrence! Why, you nearly startled me son.

 

LAWRENCE
I’m sorry Mrs. James. How you doing today?

 

MRS. JAMES
Oh, I’m just fine, son. Is it four o’clock already? You boys going down to the center?

 

LAWRENCE
Yes ma’am.

 

MRS. JAMES
(waving goodbye)

 

Well bless you. Your mama would have been so proud.

LAWRENCE
We’ll see you next week Mrs. James.

Anthony and Lawrence continue walking. Anthony is visibly not as comfortable as Lawrence, as he is not from these streets like Lawrence is.

INT. TUTORING CENTER INSIDE A CHURCH DAY

Anthony, Lawrence and Company are each at folding card tables across neighborhood youth, ranging in age and demeanor, but not color. It is apparent that things are wrapping up as mentors are standing by their mentees saying goodbyes. Anthony is still finishing up with Isiah, his mentee of 11 years.

ANTHONY
I agree, but Dre is the man behind the man. The dawg behind the dawg, you know what I’m sayin?

 

ISIAH
True that.

 

ANTHONY
Anyway, we should probably wrap it up. Yo, next week bring your homework. I’m here to help so use me, you know what I’m sayin? Math, Science, whatever…
