Scene 1. The First Day
INT. HOUSE, BEDROOM- EARLY MORNING
A boy is rushing around a house in the bedroom. He is about the age of 12. A voice comes in and the boy is still rushing. The voice is JOHN.
Yep. That’s me rushing for the first day in Junior High. It’s a new school and a new year. I’m hoping this year will be different than the last years of my life. Because I mean we are in junior high now! We are practically teenagers. Teenagers don’t mock each other for being different. Right? My mom called me from downstairs.
JOHN’S MOTHER calls from downstairs.
That was my nickname for my mom. My name is John. I hate that nickname.
Hurry up before you’re late! You don’t want to be late for your first day. Do you?
Yes but I couldn’t tell her that.
No mom. I’m on my way as we speak.
Good! Now hurry up and don’t be late! I’m going to start the car up.
Whoop-de-do for you! Now I’m going to brush my teeth really slow so you know how I feel.
INT. A SCHOOL- DAY
First day and the first step to a new life as a mature teen.
