Parent(s) tells the story of Molly and her mother exploring the options a single mother has before giving birth.

But her mom, a single mother herself, tries to convince her that being a single parent has more rewards than trials.

 

Character BIOS

[MOLLY] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 19-26] [ATTRIBUTES: FREE SPIRITED, RECKLESS, PROMISCUOUS, WISECRACKING ] Molly likes to get around. She has always been the kind of girl to go after what she wants, and more often than not, what she wants is a guy. She hardly ever thinks about the consequences of her actions and often doesn’t realize how serious a situation can be before it’s too late. However, deep down she is good-natured and compassionate, even if she tries to hide it.

[MOLLY’S MOM] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 35-55] [ATTRIBUTES: FIERCE, CARING, WISE, ANALYTIC,]

Molly’s mom shares a bond with her daughter that few parents do.

Although all children go through a rebellious phase, Molly’s was rather brief. It was mostly because Molly’s mom Allowed her daughter to explore her interests instead of forbidding them. She always allowed her daughter all the freedom she needed as long as they were honest with each other. She is hurt by Molly’s decision to give her child away but ultimately respects it.

 

[SCOOTER DRIVER] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 20-99] [ATTRIBUTES:

SHORT-TEMPERED, GREEDY, SELF-SERVING]

Scooter drivers only care about two things. Making money and positive reviews, which earn them more money. This driver is no different. He has been driving Molly around for years and yet doesn’t even know her name. All he cares about is getting his clients from point A to point B and making money while he’s at it. He is particularly wary of people with dirty feet, and always threatens them with a cleanup fee if they spread their filth in his precious car.

[ADOPTIVE COUPLE] [GENDER: ANY] [AGE: 25-99] [ATTRIBUTES: POLITE, CLEAN, PLAIN, BORING ]

The couple that catches Molly’s attention is financially stable, well-mannered, and have their lives put together. Nothing at all like Molly herself. She finds them a bit plain, but she still thinks they’re her child would be better off with them than with her.
