Excerpt (Sample)

(Will and Nate enter.  Will is jumping around yelling and screaming in his excitement

 Will:                  I’m so excited!  I can’t stand it!  We’re finally getting to go to Falcon’s Lair—the best amusement park ever! Roller coasters, water rides, bumper cars...I can’t wait! 

Nate:                Calm down, Will.  You’re giving me a headache. 

Will:                  Why aren’t you excited too?  You’ve been looking forward to this since the beginning of football season.   

Nate:                I know. 

Will:                  Coach said that if we won the state championship he’d take us all to Falcon’s Lair.  And guess what?  We won!   

Nate:                I know. 

Will:                  Then why aren’t you excited? (he jumps up and down again) 

Nate:                I think you’re excited enough for the both of us. 

Will:                  Don’t you want to ride the fastest roller coaster in the world: 0 to 100 in 2.5 seconds?  

Nate:                Yes. 

Will:                  Don’t you want to drop down 15 stories on Terror Tower? 

Nate:                Yes. 

Will:                  What about Raven’s Cradle? 

Nate:                (getting irritated) Yes, I want to fly through the air on Raven’s Cradle! I want to do all those things, but... 

Will:                  But what? 

(Millie enters) 

Millie:                Hey guys, what’s going on? 

Will:                  Hi Millie.  We were just talking about our trip to Falcon’s Lair. 

Millie:                You guys are so lucky!  

Will:                  You got that right! 

Millie:                I wish I was on the football team! 

Will:                  (laughs) I’d like to see that! 

Millie:                What’s that supposed to mean? 

Will:                  (in a mocking, high pitched voice)Oh Mr. Linebacker please don’t tackle me, I just had my nails done!”  (laughs) You wouldn’t last a day!  

Millie:                You’re probably right.  But I still wish I could go to Falcon’s Lair.  You’re gonna have a blast!

Will:                  Terror Tower, here I come! 

Millie:                Are you looking forward to your trip, Nate? 

Nate:                I guess so. 

Millie:                (to Will) What’s the matter with him? 

Will:                  I don’t know.  He’s been moping around ever since the championship. 

Millie:                Nate, is something wrong? 

Nate:                I’ve been thinking about what happened to Jack.
