Setting: The news station
Ok we're here! (Opens the door) Wow! This place is filled with technology! Ok, lets see... There! (Points at a camera and computer) We should be able to use that camera to send a broadcast to everyone in the USA! So if I do this and turn this it should... Yes, perfect! We should be going live in ten seconds! (Begins to fix hair and take a deep breath)
SEBASTIAN (Facing the camera)
Hello all! Before I begin talking I just want to apologize for interrupting your show! Especially if it was Fun With Jellybeans! But this is very important. Anyways my name is Sebastian White and just like all of you. My family has gone a littl- No. A lot coo-coo! And for those of you who don't know this is because of two very bad brothers. They have made them like this with their cookies. Anyways we need to stop them! To do this we need t- (The camera dies) What!
(A few seconds pass and the other kids start to mutter anxiously as they fiddle with the camera)
SEBASTIAN (A couple minutes later, broadcasting again)
Sorry! The camera died... But it is good now! But as I was saying to stop them we need to band together and make a team! If you are interested, which I will give you several reason why you should in a minute. You need to get to one of these three locations. Um... (Looks down at a piece of paper) Pittsburgh, Dallas, or Salt Lake City.
(The other children mess with the computer and a weather map pops up behind SEBASTIAN)
(shouts enthusiastically) Look at the map behind Seb! Pittsburgh is, um, in the upper right-ish corner, Dallas is...uh... (consults with another kid) in Teexas! Oops, Texas. And Salt Lake City is in that pointy-looking state on the left! (hops in front of the camera and points to the map) You guys can use your parents' cars to get to those places, and you should also have a map or uh.. gips? gups? (whispers to another kid) Yeah! A GPS! (grins at the camera and gives two thumbs ups) Hope you all get there! Also please don't crash your cars! (runs behind the camera again) (faintly) All yours, Seb!
Thank you! And as for those reasons there are three fantastic ones! Number 1! There is a chance that you might be able to control some heavy-duty military equipment! Doesn't that sound fun! (Waves arms around to enhance the effect, excited pew-pew noises come from off-screen) Number two! If you come there will be a even bigger chance of success! Resulting in a bigger chance of your family getting back to normal! (someone shouts, "and getting home-cooked food again!", followed by mmms and sighs) Number three! (Pauses and looks at the same paper from earlier) Oh ya! Number three! On the drive to one of these places you will get the once in a life time chance of seeing the world! (oohs and ahhs from off-screen) And you have to admit driving a car sounds fun! But make sure you are safe! No injuries! Anyways I hope you decide to come. We will give you two and a half weeks to arrive! Good luck! (Signals the camera boy to stop it.)
Whew! That was exhausting! But fun too! I should probably let Kit and Gus know how it went! (Turns on walkie talkie) Hey guys! We did it.
