Chapter 3 - Situations Subchapter: Parties & festivals

Scenario: safe sleeping

A row of tents at night.

 

Katie and Grace have had a massive festival - brilliant bands, brilliant everything.

Katie’s got no clean clothes and only a little cash left for food. She hadn’t budgeted on everything being so expensive!

It’s the last night and Grace has gone to check out an artist playing on one of the smaller stages while Katie watches the band on the main stage. The crowd is pumped and there is a cute guy wanting to buy her beers.

The set finishes and everyone stumbles around, reluctant to acknowledge the festival is over.

Katie and the cute guy have spent the last hour making out. Her tent is close by, so she suggests they head back there.

 

CAN CUTE GUY GO BACK TO KATIE'S TENT?

Katie’s into it and the guy seems nice – not some random weirdo.

She doesn’t hear the zipper on the tent flap open and she doesn’t see the look on Grace’s face when she realises she’s going to have to find somewhere else to sleep.

Grace is furious!

She can’t believe that Katie has brought a guy back to their tent without checking in with her. She hasn’t arranged to sleep somewhere else. They had a safety plan!

 

KATE CAN BRING A GUY BACK TO THE TEND WITHOUT CHECKING IN WITH GRACE?

Grace and Katie have a long drive home tomorrow and Grace just wants to go to sleep. She knows it’s not safe for her to sleep out of a tent and hopes that Sam and Becka will be cool with her crashing with them.

The next day.

Grace challenges Katie about what happened.

Katie apologises. She knows that the tent is their shared space and not hers to use how she pleases.

Next time she will check in with Grace and make sure Grace has somewhere to sleep and be safe.

Remember the plan!
