Haley walked into the theatre. It took her nearly three times to convince herself that she should. She took a seat in the front row and sighed. The quiet of the auditorium was a welcome presence.

Dean stood at the wings of the stage and prepared himself to look out over yet another empty auditorium. He was a bit early, true, and Mischa would get here on time like always, but odds were Anita wouldn't show up. And they didn't have people clamoring to audition...

He walked out onto the stage and saw the girl sitting there. "Hello," he said with a grin as he moved to sit on the edge. "Haley, right?"

Haley nodded, "Yeah. That's me. I hope it's okay that I'm in here. I just wanted some place where I could think without having Serena asking if I was okay every 15 seconds."

"Not at all," he said, shaking his head. "Would you like me to leave you alone then?"

Haley shook her head, "No, it's cool, unless you're going to ask me if I'm okay with everything. To save you the trouble, the answer is no."

He held up his hands with a small laugh. "I wasn't going to ask and I won't ask any further. So how about we talk about something else. Mischa said that you seemed interested in joining Drama Club," he prompted.

Haley nodded, "Yeah. Serena says I need to do something other than mope around and cheerleading will make me miss home too much. I figured it was a win win."

"All right," he said, pushing himself to his feet. "But I have to warn you," he said with a playful edge, "you're going to have to try out. And if you ask Mischa, we're kind of selective."

Haley laughed, "I think I can live with that. I used to be student body president at my old school and I had to give a daily speech."

"So you're good at public speaking," he conceded. He gestured for her to come join him on the stage. "And you're good at saying the words on the page. But can you put any emotion into them? Can you come up with the next line of the story at the drop of a hat?"

Haley walked onto the stage and channeled very bit of what she was feeling in to her recitation. "Newland. You couldn't be happy if it meant being cruel. If we act any other way I'll be making you act against what I love in you most. And I can't go back to that way of thinking. Don't you see? I can't love you unless I give you up."

He nodded. "Age of Innocence. Good choice," he said honestly. "And a good read. I'm going to assume that Mischa told you that's the play we're doing this spring?"

Haley nodded, "Yeah. She may have mentioned it and I may have agreed to it because I can relate to the Countess."

"Do you relate to because of her compassion towards Regina Beaufort, a fellow victim of social censure," he asked. "Or her benevolent nature in her tolerance for the mavericks of society? Or her lack of concern for social rules and etiquette while a mind of her own and using it well and with concern for others?" He shoved his papers beneath one arm before sticking his hands in his pockets. "She's a symbol to Newland. A symbol of his imagined life of the soul. Think about that for a few minutes and then say the line again. As that symbol."

Haley took a second to regain her composure and recited the words again. A symbol. Sometimes that's all Haley felt as though she was. The symbol of what Jack wanted in his dream girl, the symbol of what a good and moral person should be. While she knew she should be all of those things, deep down, she wasn't and it was driving her crazy trying to be. When she was done with her monologue she looked at him. "Was there a difference?"

He nodded, the smile on his face widening. "Better. Much better." He walked over to hop off the edge of the stage. "It's not just about relating to the character. It's not even about getting inside their head. It's about realizing what they are. If you can't be what they are, then there's no way that you can be who they are effectively."

Haley nodded, "I'm so sick of everyone defining me. I've listened to everyone for so long, I don't even know who I am anymore." She paused and added, "I think that's why I came here. It wasn't to escape what happened, it was to find the real me."

"What better place to find who you are than a theater," he asked with a knowing grin, "where you can be anyone?" He gave a small laugh, shaking his head. "On a lighter note, welcome to the Drama Club. We meet every Monday, Wednesday, Friday here after classes let out."

Haley smiled, "I'll be there. And thanks for listening, I think you're the first person that actually has listened."

"My pleasure. Please let me know whenever you need an open ear," he said, giving her a slight bow. "But let me tell you a secret." He rapped on the edge of the stage with his knuckles. "This is one of the best places to work out whatever you're dealing with and no one will know unless you tell them. To the audience," he threw his arm out to the side with a wide smile, "it's all an act."

Haley smiled and nodded, "I'm starting to see that. Thanks Mr. Lennox. I'll see you in class tomorrow."
