An excerpt …

(the girls are on an adventure)

LYDIA: Look, it’s just one night. Jo-Ellen dared us to spend just one night in her grandma’s old abandoned house. She said we’d be chicken if we didn’t do it. It’s not going to kill us.

JODI: If my folks find out, I’m dead anyway. We told them we’d be staying at your house tonight.

LYDIA: They’ll never know. We’ll just go to sleep, then creep back in my bedroom window in the morning.

OPAL: (running in with Paula) I wanna go home!

LYDIA: Go ahead.

OPAL: By myself?

LYDIA: Sure. It’s midnight, the streets are dark, the wind’s howling and I just heard a vampire on the roof. What could possibly stop you?

(what was that sound?)

NADENE: Opal, would you stop moaning!

OPAL: That wasn’t me that time.

PAULA: It wasn’t?

OPAL: I’m not even breathing. How could I moan?

NADENE: There is goes again!

JODI: (moving to the door) I’m getting out of here. (stops) It’s stuck. The door’s stuck. We’re locked in!

(will they make it out?)

PAULA: We’ve gotta find another way out.

LYDIA: Go ahead.


LYDIA: It was your idea.

PAULA: (standing) What if I don’t come back?

LYDIA: Then I get your locker at school. It’s closer to the lunchroom.

PAULA: Funny. (begins to move to another area) I don’t like this.
