Mike: Wow. You're finally here. You must feel so thrilled. I'm so happy for you.
Maria: I wouldn't have been here if wasn't for you.
Mike: What did I do? It was all you Maria.
Maria: No, you don't understand. You supported me with your love and care.
Mike: Save your tears dear. You're going to ruin your make up.
Maria: I'm sorry. I'm just so emotional right now.
Mike: It's a very special day for you. Come and hug me.
(Mike and Maria hug and held on to each other for a few minutes. Maria then leaves to her meeting area but not before kissing Mike goodbye. Two hours later the ceremony commences.)
Maria's Peer: Could you believe we're about to graduate?
Maria: I know, it's unbelievable! Congratulations by the way.
Maria's Peer: Thank you. Same to you.
Maria: I wonder how long the ceremony is going to be.
Maria's Peer: According to the pamphlet, about four hours.
Maria: I'm going to cherish every minute of this event.
Maria's Peer: That's the spirit. So what are your plans after this?
Maria: I think I might take a short vacation. After, I plan on going to Library school.
Maria's Peer: You want to be a Librarian? That is so awesome. Best of luck to you.
Maria: How about you?
Maria's Peer: I'm going to apply to Medical School.
Maria: Wow, that's impressive. I'm sure you'll get in.
Maria's Peer: They're calling out our names. Listen!
Maria: It was nice talking to you by the way.
Maria's Peer: Same here! I'll see you up on stage.
(A man over the speaker phone begins to call out everybody's names one at a time. Maria soon hears her name over the speaker and rises to the brightly lid stage to receive her degree. She spots Mike in the audience smiling and waving at her. She smiles and waves back.)
