Pure Taboo – Jaye Summers – The Cookie Jar
SCENE opens on Travis and Amy, two college students, as they park their car in the driveway of a nice suburban house. The pair have been dating for months, but this will be the first time that Amy meets Travis’ parents and she’s anxious. She’s so anxious, in fact, that Travis has been giving her pep talks throughout the entire drive. ‘You shouldn’t be so worried,’ he says, handing her a bag from the truck. ‘My parents are very accepting people. They’re going to love you, no matter what!’ Amy doesn’t want to admit it, but she comes from a less affluent family and is very insecure about being welcomed into Travis’ upper middle-class life. Even her luggage looks shabby.
