Adeeva is standing at the front of the stage to stage right fixing her clothes. Vikki, Emma and Jackie are all still at the back of stage left.

Vikki, Emma and Jackie start moving, whispering to each other.

Jackie- said while giggling- She looks like she couldn't get her shirt all the way over her head.

Adeeva looks over to where girls exited and shakes her head.
