Does This Outfit Make Me Look Dead? (version #2)

(A teenage girl comes onstage. And she is clearly worried. She speaks quietly.)
I was wondering if you could help me.
I'm...looking for a dress. A prom dress. This is going to be my first prom.....it's very special.
(She looks around)
Do you have anything in.....black?
I know, black is a bit different, but you, see, I'm different. My boyfriend - he's a very sweet guy. He asked me to in such a nice way....right in front of the whole cafeteria, he and his friends sang me this song.'Will You Go With Me?...(Smiling) I'll never forget that. And I helped with the prom - the decorations, and the band is my friend's group, so this is going to be a special night.
(She listens, takes a dress and holds it to herself, twirls around.)
This one looks good, I think I'll try it on!
(She whirls away, walks back in, she has the dress on now, walks with a regal air, then listens and laughs)
No, I'm not into that goth stuff!
Why do I want a black dress?
Well, that's an interesting story.
You see, my boyfriend and I have been going together for a about a year, and I never figured another guy would ask me out.....but then Zachary did, and he's just a friend, and it was a total surprise! I never thought he would do anything like that, but he did, and he looked so cute, but then I reminded him about my boyfriend, who he knows, so that couldn't have news to him...
(She is quiet)
And then when I had to say no, he looked so sad. I gave him a hug and told him another girl would be happy to go.
And then......(takes a deep breath)
Then he said, well, you're the only girl for me.....and if I can't have you.....
(She gasps, remembering)
And he took out this knife and stabbed me.....
(She grabs her stomach)
And it was the strangest sensation! And I could see the blood and then he slit his wrist and grabbed me and we fell down, and I.....we......died.
So.......I guess, maybe it's not what I expected, but I am going to the prom after all......I'm just wondering if .......
(She is quiet)
If this dress makes me look dead?
(She whirls around, then out the door. The end.)
