The Big Day
SCENE 1. EXT. HOME – DAY
(Lisa and Lily are best friends and it would take a lot of fight to separate them – until Mona came.)
LISA: Hey, wait up.
(She runs to Lily)
LILY: Hey, how is your mum?
LISA: Good. She wanted to know if you could come over.
LILY: Sure, you know I would love too.
NARRATOR: The bell ring and they go to class…. at home
LILY: Hi, Mrs Machin. Hi, Mr Machin.
MR AND MRS MACHIN: Hi, Lily.
LISA: Hi, mum. Hi, dad.
MUM AND DAD: Hi, sweetie pie.
LISA: Stop, not in front of my BFF!
SCENE 2. EXT. GARDEN – DAY
NARRATOR: In the garden when they stopped arguing…
LISA: Let’s build a den in the woods. LILY: Great idea.
NARRATOR: They built a den when a girl named Mona appeared.
MONA: Can I join in? LILY: We’re finished.
LISA: Sure, we can find something new like tag.
LISA: You’re welcome.
NARRATOR: Lily doesn’t like Mona, but Lisa has a strong feeling about her.
NARRATOR: They play until Mona wants to show them something. [CACKLE] Little did they know it will… send them to the underworld.
LISA: (AMAZED) Wow.
LILY: We should be going now, your mum will be worried.
LISA: Rubbish. Let’s stay a little longer!
LILY: (SCARED) Can I go home now?
LISA: (BEGS) Please stay.
LILY: (WORRIED) Fine.
MONA: Enough! Who is going in?
NARRATOR: They played a game. Lisa lost and had to go in… Lily felt she had lost her brain and she didn’t know what to do.
LILY: Don’t do it, please, Lisa! LISA: I’m sorry I have to. (Lisa slowly walks to the door)
LISA: Bye, Lily.
LILY: No, no, no. Lisa, you left me!
(She falls to the ground in tears.)
NARRATOR: With Lisa gone, the portal closed and Mona had disappeared. Lily couldn’t move.
SCENE 3. INT. UNDERWORLD – NIGHT
LISA: Where am I? (REALISES) Welcome to the Underworld. Mona, you sly dog, I hate you. I hate you!
(Lisa drops to the ground in tears.)
LISA: Oh, no, I should’ve listened to you, Lily.
NARRATOR: With both best friends in tears on the ground and Mona disappeared – what had happened and why was Mona missing?
