Which way does the horse thingy move again?
The knight moves two squares one way, one square another way.
OK. So there?
-Go on. Do your teacher's voice again.
Found this on the doorstep.
Is it from a secret admirer?
Eh, I'm going out.
-(What was it?)
Kinda looked like a snake.
Elektra's old gang, the Cobras,
-they're not supposed to know she's here, right?
Someone left her a package, with an earring inside, like a snake.
-Where is she?
-She ran out. Look, I'll just go find her.
Tracy, we should... Tracy!
-You do know I'm in charge?!
-Hi, have you seen Elektra?
She's heading into town. Why?
No, no, no. I don't want to move her, she's settled here.
I just thought I ought to warn you.
Fine, fine. I'll ring you later.
OK. Right, right. Bye.
Is everything OK with Elektra?
Her old gang might have found her. I was warning her social worker.
-Anything we can do?
-I dunno yet.
Dazzle them into submission.
It's the Rotary Club dinner dance tonight and Greg's the President,
so we have to lead the first dance.
It's going to be a disaster.
-Why's that a disaster?
-Well, I've just had my last lesson
and the teacher was wearing shin pads.
-We'll have to get you a new teacher.
So what happened?
I'm banged up for six months and you don't even call?
I just didn't think you'd want to hear from me again.
Not want to hear from you?!
-So, when d'you get out?
-A couple of weeks ago.
I wish I'd gone after Tracy.
That's it, very good.
You've read the file. Those Cobras are a nasty lot.
You don't know it's them that she's met.
Yes, but what about the earring?
No, it's not that.
I can't really concentrate.
-Could we do this later?
-If you're man enough.
So you seen any of the others?
No, the old gang's history now.
-That's good to know.
-What are you doing here?
Just passing. I'm Tracy and you are?
None of your business... She works at my care home.
So, in a way it IS my business.
Oh, nice earring.
Matching pair. Snakes, aren't they?
I'm Kali...old friend of Lex.
Lex. Ooh, I like it.
-Can I call you Lex?
-No. Go away.
Or am I going to be sanctioned for having friends?
Depends on who they are.
-Didn't you use to be in a gang called the Cobras, Lex?
She's only doing her job.
We were room-mates in our old care home. Best mates, too.
That was before all the gang stuff.
That was my fault.
I got Lex into a lot of trouble.
I've just done six months in Youth Detention.
I came to tell Lex that I've changed.
She doesn't have to worry about me any more.
I'm sorry, causing you grief. I shouldn't have come.
Nice meeting you, Tracy.
One, Two... Thank you, I'm enjoying it very much.
Er, what are you doing?
-It was a waltz.
-Is it meant to be done with a broom?
Um, no. You're meant to use people, but...
My mum did ballroom. Want me to show you how to do it properly?
I think I know how to dance.
Just get out! Go on!
Actually, she doesn't seem that bad.
You met her for, what, five minutes? How can you possibly tell?
Well, you don't need to take my word for it. She's outside.
Tracy, what were you thinking?
That I'd never seen Elektra so happy.
And I don't want us to drive her away. Look, I'm not stupid.
Isn't it better to have them here, so we can keep an eye on them?
Hi, I'm Kali.
Hi... Come in.
It's true. I was bad for Lex back in the Cobra days.
Got her into shoplifting and worse,
but being in that Secure Unit really changed me.
I'm trying my best to be a better person,
cos there's no way I'm going back there.
It's good to hear that you're making a fresh start, Kali,
-but I'm afraid you're still going to have to leave.
I have a duty of care.
It's my responsibility to make sure that you're safe.
-But I am safe with Kali!
But if you don't want to be moved again, Kali has to go.
This is not fair.
She's been punished. She's done her time.
It's OK, Lex. I'll go.
Come on, Mike. She's my best friend and you always say,
everybody deserves a second chance. Please! It's just a visit. Please?!
-Go on, Kali can stay for a while.
We'll see how you get on.
Thank you, Mike!
What d'you reckon? She seems genuine?
Could just be a really good liar.
And don't ever do something like this again! You've read the file.
Elektra was moved here for a reason.
Hang on! You're the one that said she could stay.
Yes, because as well as being extremely annoying,
you also made a point about not driving Elektra away.
-What would you do without me, Mike?
-Don't push it.
Elektra can stay for a bit,
but I want you to stick to them like glue.
Let me know the first time there's any trouble, right?
Like glue, Tracy.
Your room's bigger than my whole gaff!
Yeah, but must be great living on your own.
You can do what you want, without anyone bothering you.
-Stuck with me, I'm afraid. Orders.
So, no hanging out on your own.
Oh, fine by me. How about showing me round?
Great. Follow me.
Gus, this is a waltz.
I know it's a waltz.
OK, so play really loudly, OK?
HE PLAYS WALTZ EXPERTLY
You've got a piano?
They'd have burnt it down in our old place. Right, Lex?
-Gus, this is Elektra's friend, Kali.
-No talking, whilst I'm playing.
Sorry. Come on.
But kind of sweet.
And this is the kitchen.
-What, no padlock on the fridge?
Or the food cupboard?
You landed on your feet here, girl.
In our old place, you only got biscuits on Mondays.
-There were fights over them.
-Fights over everything.
That's how the Cobras started. Two of us defending ourselves.
Looking out for each other. Other kids felt safer around us.
It just kinda grew from there.
-Sounded like you were living in a zoo.
Wish they'd sent me somewhere like this.
I might not have ended up doing time.
May I have the pleasure of this dance, Miss Gina?
I'd like to sweep you off your feet!
Why, Mr Broom! I thought you'd never ask.
That's it. I'm not dancing.
Why? You were doing really well.
Oh, really? Is that why the children are out there, laughing at me?
I'm just gong to tell Greg I've hurt my knee.
I mean...work to do.
Hey guys, having a good time?
Listen, Gina is supposed
to start the dance at a big do tonight, with her fella,
-and now she's saying that she doesn't want to dance.
Cos you lot have been taking the micky.
We didn't realise it was important.
I thought she was mucking about.
So, I tell you what...
I want you to convince her to dance by the end of the day.
Hey, Sapphire, this is Kali.
-She was my room-mate, about four dumping grounds back.
-All right, so you're doing that whole gang thing again?
No. I'm done with gangs and so is Kali.
-Oh, right. So you're a completely different person now?
Right. Um, the Cobras, wasn't it?
-No, look you don't have to live here and I do.
I don't want anyone bringing trouble to my door, all right?
-I'm sorry, Kali.
-Nah, it's OK. I get it.
I have that effect on people, sometimes.
-Why don't you take those up to your room?
-On our own?
Yeah, it's about time someone gave you two a break.
Must be nice not having your stuff nicked.
-But this place so ain't you.
-It's not that bad.
Come on, you must miss the old days.
Oh, being half-starved and locked in at night? The fights?
-You ought to be running this place, man.
-Nah, it's not like that here.
-You should meet my new mates.
-Yeah, I'd like that.
I tell you, we have way more laughs than this lot.
-I thought you were on your own?
-I never said that.
What about Tracy?
Urgh! Can't believe you've forgotten how to sneak out of a care home.
Hear anything you like?
I was just lending a book to Elektra.
-A chess book.
It doesn't matter.
Think I got here just in time.
PIANO CONTINUES TO PLAY
I'm just going to have to stop him,
because if I don't, my head's going to explode!
# Gina, you're fantastical
# Your style's inter-galactical
# Gina, you dance just like a dream
-# You do!
# Gina, you dance just like a dream
-# You do!
-You do! #
We had a laugh. Now you've had a laugh at us. Feel better?
Do you know, I feel great, you know. Thanks for cheering me up.
I'm still not dancing, though.
-Kali, they're Cobras.
-It's not the same as before.
Look, this is really important to me... Please.
I really want them to meet you.
This is the famous Lex.
Siggy, Dutch and...
Zazel. Kali's best mate.
So where have you been? Kali was in for six months.
-You didn't phone her once.
-What would you know about it?
I'm just saying, you weren't there for her.
Oh, you're just saying? Is that what you do? Just say things?
-No, I don't.
-Cos I don't have to "say things" to Kali.
I'm there when it matters. Get it?
-I said. Do. You. Get it?
You still got it, girl!
Admit it. Lex. You got the buzz, didn't you?
See, I knew it.
STRANGE CHILDREN'S RACKET
What are you..?
Ha-ha. Gina's too chicken to dance!
Yeah, OK. I am chicken.
So you'll dance, then?
I am loving the outfits, though.
And it's chicken nuggets for tea, yeah? Ha-ha!
-Come back with us.
-Kali, I can't just walk out.
I've got nowhere to live.
-Stay with me.
-OK, that's the first place that they'd look.
So you sofa surf with us lot.
You can just get filed as another runaway.
I need to think about it.
What's to think about?
Life in care with a bunch of losers?
Or splashing the cash with your mates.
You said I was like your sister.
It's the same for me, too.
We're family, Lex. Come on.
It's not the same without you.
I'll meet you in an hour.
-Have you been out?
We tried to find you to ask, but...
-That's the thing, she had to catch a train.
-We didn't realise how late it was.
-But you still had time to shop?
On the way back from the station.
-I trusted you, Elektra.
-I know, I'm sorry.
Kali said to say goodbye.
Tee... Can you not sneak up on people?
I'll try not to. It's just, well, I'm quite small,
so sometimes I do it without meaning to.
-Will you help me with something?
-What do you need help with?
You know this whole dancing thing? Carmen's going on about the ballroom.
-We want you to show us how to do it properly?
No bwuk-bwuk, chickens?
Where's Liam? No camera?
-I am not dancing!
-You don't have to.
Just come with me a minute. I want to show you something.
And then we turn like that.
Start again, Gus. Three, two one...
This is harder than it looks, you know, Gina.
We're all really sorry we laughed at you.
I bet you don't dance bad - for a big girl.
What's happening now?
We all need help with our waltzing.
What are you doing?
You can't tell anyone about this.
It's that girl, isn't it?
That girl is like family to me.
What about us?
I don't fit in here. Kali gets me.
I'd rather be with her. I'm sorry, but I'm going.
Forward, two, three...
Turn, two, three...
Turn two, three. That's good.
Turn, two, three. Hi, Tracy. Where are the girls?
Elektra's upstairs. Kali's gone.
Oh, well, why don't you join in?
-Gus would love to have a go.
Go on, have a go.
-Turn, two, three...
-I've been watching.
Turn, two, three.
Bow to your partner.
-Thank you very much. Don't tell me that you can't dance.
-Toby, have you seen Elektra?
-I'll catch you guys up.
-What are you doing?
You're being stupid. Don't go with them.
You'll end up in prison. Like Kali.
-You're wrong. Just leave it.
Get off me and forget about me. It's not like we're friends or anything.
Just, go home.
Sorry. He won't be a problem.
Yeah, you're right about that.
-Where are the others?
-They'll catch us up.
Come on, give us all you got.
Come on. What else you got, then, eh? What's that?
You wanna give us your watch, too? Isn't that nice?
What else you got?! Take his trainers.
Oi! Want to pick on someone? Try me!
Give him his stuff back! Now!
-Toby, go home. Go!
He was your friend. I get it. Won't happen again.
It shouldn't have happened in the first place.
Don't get worked up.
-They picked the wrong kid. It's just business.
You seemed pretty happy splashing the cash earlier.
-Where d'you think we got it?
-Maybe I didn't want to think about that.
Maybe I missed my old friend so much, I didn't want to think
-that she was conning me!
-You've still got your old friend.
I'm still here. I ain't changed.
Maybe you haven't changed. But I have.
Don't make me look bad, Lex.
Toby, what's happened?! What is it?
What you waiting for? Come on!
Who's first? You? You?
Or how about you?
Yeah, some friend you turned out to be(!)
SOBBING: Elektra's gang. They tried to take my stuff.
-Where is she?
Elektra did this?!
No, she stopped them.
-I'm calling the police.
-I have to.
-No, you don't.
-They're gone now. Look, Toby, I am so sorry.
-Get off me!
They're the sort of friends you want? You'd choose them over us?!
-You don't understand. Kali's like family to me.
What kind of family treat people like that!?
I understand I got it wrong and I am so, so sorry.
I just didn't want to be on my own.
You're not on your own!
Not a problem, take care. Thank you. Bye now.
Don't blame Tracy. It was my fault.
No, Kali was pretty convincing.
-You weren't the only one taken in.
-I've put a note on your file
and your social worker will be here in the morning.
-What, you're moving me?
-I don't know yet.
I will if it's necessary for your safety.
Bet you wish you hadn't given me a second chance now.
Wow, look at you, lady!
Cinderella, your coach and four awaits you.
Oh, thank you, thank you.
Hey, and thanks, guys, for our dancing lessons.
I'm going to put it to good use.
-Didn't think anyone was up.
Is that you and Kali?
I used to think Kali was such a great person.
I used to have curly hair. People change.
You did the right thing.
So, how did the dance go last night?
Oh, yeah, how was it? Did you knock 'em for six?
Greg said that he'd hurt his knee.
And, ah, I think, in truth, he was actually more nervous than I was.
So you didn't get to dance after all?
SHOUTING: Gina Conway! Michael Milligan!
Gina Conway and Michael Milligan!
Quick, get in your places. Turn the music on.
