The Restless Reconcile
While shopping in the Not So Supermarket, Esmé and Jerome Squalor cross paths with some old acquaintances from the past.
Jenny: Jerome, Fernald, and Colette.
Emma Squalor: Esmé, Emma, and Faust.
Both will be playing Carmelita and Nero.
Esmé hadn’t said much when she heard about the accident at the In Supermarket involving her son-in-law. She had never liked Nero much, but she would never wish any harm upon him. But she did find it rather funny that he had driven his car through the front doors of the store— though she doubted that he would see any humor in the situation when the time came to pay for the damages.
However, Esmé’s laughter had faded the instant Jerome had informed her that they would be doing their grocery shopping at the Not So Supermarket that Sunday morning.
With a pronounced pout, Esmé trailed slowly down the isles of the store; her husband pushing the cart, while their daughter walked beside him, her hand draped over the side.
“I wonder what Carmy’s going to say when she finds out about what Nero did?” Emma said, a little too cheerfully for her mother’s tastes. Didn’t her daughter realize that they would be forced to eat discount food for the next week on account of Nero’s stupidity?
“Well, the important thing is that he’s alright,” replied Esmé, who wanted to add “But I’ll kill him later.”
Jerome paused so he could take a can of peaches off the shelf and drop them into the cart.
“We need parsley soda,” Emma announced.
“They don’t sell it here, darling,” Esmé told her. “We’ll have to stop at the Beverage District on the way home and pick some up.”
“Why don’t you go grab some bottled water? We can still make your father’s aqueous martinis. I saw some cases a couple of isles down.”
“Okay,” Emma said, and dashed off.
