Drama. By David S. Raine.
Cast: 1m., 2w. Siblings discover more than they expect in an attic.
(Lights up on an attic. BRIAN, JESS and AMY enter.)
JESS This is too wierd.
BRIAN Tell me about it.
AMY I swear to God, one rat...a mouse even, and I'm out of here.
BRIAN There aren't any rats up here.
JESS We shouldn't be up here either.
BRIAN Oh, yes, we should. We have to.
JESS Let me see that again. (BRIAN hands her a legal document, which she examines)
BRIAN You can read it as much as you like—it's not going to change.
JESS I mean, what are we supposed to be looking for?
AMY Hey, you guys, what do rat droppings look like?
BRIAN (to JESS). He doesn't say. Why do you keep asking me? You've got the will right there.
JESS This is just too wierd.
AMY Are they bigger than mouse droppings?
BRIAN Amy, I promise you there are no rats up here.
JESS So we're supposed to, what, just look around for a while?
AMY 'Til we find it.
JESS Find what?
BRIAN Don't get her started again.
JESS Well, is this the dumbest thing, or what? Look 'til you find something, but we don't even know what we're looking for.
AMY Dad's as mysterious in death as he was in life.
