Harper:  “Oh yeah I forgot about that one.”

Dalton:  “Is this story for real?

Wilson:  “Yeah.”

Harper:  “I guess you want to start hanging out with us now don’t you?”

Dalton:  “Yeah. I guess so. If that’s okay with you guys.”

Harper:  “You see, there are rules that have to be followed. If I could break them I might…no probably not, but to get into the group there are some things that you just have to do.”

Harper:  “It may be unpleasant, but we all did it when we were young.”

Harper:  “You don’t have to do anything, we like you, but your faggy brother…not so much.”

Dalton:  “What do I have to do?”

Wilson:  “Your brother has to spend the night at the creek alone.”

Dalton:  “No I wont let you do that to him. He may be a little bit different, but he’s still my brother.”

Dalton:  “If he goes, we all go.”

Oliver:  “What story? What are you talking about Dalton?”

Logan:  “Are you sure you want to hear it?” I don’t want you to have to go home to your mommy.”

Dalton:  “Yeah man. I need to know what we’re up against.”

They All Laugh

Logan:  “Well, a long time ago, there was a family that lived down here at the creek.  Then weird things started happening.”

Wilson:  “They heard weird noises at night, and sometimes dead animals would be on their doorstep when they woke up in the morning.”

Harper:  “Then one night, the dad was fed up with it. He went outside with a shotgun. He was gone for an hour or two, and then they heard his gun fire.”

Logan:  “They never saw him again.”

Wilson:  “Then the family moved away and no one has spent the night down here since.”

Dalton:  “This is really funny guys. I totally believe your story.”

Harper:  “Believe what you want, but you probably wont live to see tomorrow.”

Logan:  “Both of you just shut up. We’re going back to camp.”
