Rachel: Tim... I have to tell you something.
Tim: *looks up at a butterfly* Is it something nice?
Rachel: *forlorn* Not exactly...
Tim: *walks after the butterfly* Then it can wait.
Rachel: *surprised* Wait? For how long??
Tim: *running after the butterfly now* Forever, and ever.
Rachel: *sigh* Forever, and ever is a very long time, Tim.
Tim: *laughing* Forever, isn't long at all, when I'm with you. *pause* I wanna call your name, Forever. And you will always answer, Forever. And we will always be, Forever you and me. Forever, and ever.
Rachel: Forever, and ever. Is a very long time, Tim.
Tim: Forever, isn't long at all! When I'm with you!
Rachel: *tackles Tim, and rolls down a grassy hill* I wanna stay like this, Forever. If only I could promise, Forever. Then we could just be we, Forever you and me.
Both: Forever, and ever.
Tim: I wanna be with you, Forever. I want you right beside me, Forever.
Rachel: One thing you should know, no matter where I go, we'll always be together!
Both: Forever, and ever.
Rachel: *lays on grass, watching the sun set over a purple and pink sky* ... Tim.
Tim: *eyes closed* Hm?Rachel: I'm moving away.
Tim: *eyes shoot open, sits up* WHAT?
Rachel: *tears well up in eyes* I have to move away. Daddy says we can't afford our house here anymore, and we have to go move in with my gramma.
Tim: No, no, no! You promised we'd always be together!
Rachel: I know I did. And we will. Daddy says maybe if we get enough money, we can come back here for vacations.
Tim: *tears streaming down face* You could live with me.
Rachel: *sad smile* Where would I sleep?
Tim: *desperately* On the floor, or in my bed! You don't have to leave!
Rachel: *sniffles, watching the fireflies come out* Tim.
Tim: *wipes eyes* What?
Rachel: Remember the movie we used to watch together? 'Charlotte's Web'?
Rachel: Well, take Charlotte's advice; Chin up. *holds out hand, which a firefly lands on*
Tim: How much longer til you move?
Rachel: Daddy says we'll be moving on Sunday.
Tim: But, it's Wednesday now. You only have four days left here. Then you'll be gone.
Rachel: No, Mommy says that when you love someone a lot, they stay in your heart forever.
Rachel: *takes Tim's hand and runs finger over the creases*
Tim: Hey... *giggles and sniffles* That tickles...
Rachel: *points* That line means you're shy. And that one means you're big-hearted. The last one means you're good.
Tim: That's cool... *sniffles* But I still can't believe you're leaving.
Rachel: But know that... *places firefly in Tim's hand, and gently closes it round it so the hand doesn't crush the firefly* I'll always be with you.
Always be with you.
Masky: Ohh... *is now wearing an orange hoody and a white mask with blacked out eyes and lips with raised eyebrows penciled on them and sighs as the flashback fades away* Rachel...

Hoody: *alarmed* What are you doing?!
Masky: If we want to get around unnoticed, we must blend in. *takes off mask*

Hoody: Let's stop here to refresh.
Tim: Good, 'cause I'm thirsty.
Hoody: *firmly* The closest you'll get to alcoholic is soda.
Tim: *rolls eyes* Fine. *starts to walk in*
Hoody: Wait. *steps in front of Tim* We are here on business. NOT to party and goof off!

Hoody: Dang it. Here we go...
Tim: *onstage* Darn, that was sudden...
Rachel: *sympathetic smile* Nervous?
Tim: A little, yeah.
Rachel: Well, don't be. Like Charlotte said in 'Charlotte's Web', chin up.
Tim: *looks at Rachel, then smiles*
Announcer: Let it begin. Let it begin! LET IT BEGIN!!music starts*

Announcer: And give it up for Rachel, and her very special guest!
Tim: *laughs with pride as the crowd cheers*

Rachel: I'm sorry, I didn't introduce myself. I'm-
Tim: Rachel. I know.
Rachel: Oh, yeah, I forgot, the announcer boomed out my name to the whole audience. *laughs*
Tim: Yeah, that, but something else.
Rachel: Hm? *confused*
Tim: It's me. Tim.
Rachel: *eyes widen* T-Tim?
Tim: Hi, Rachel.
Rachel: *sighs and hugs* I've missed you so much.
Tim: *tears well up in eyes* You have no idea.
Rachel: What's been going on with you?
Tim: Well, I-
Tim: *turns around* Hoody, not now!
Hoody: You have to take care of something. *taps head suggestively*
Tim: Not yet, I still-
Hoody: Mm! *sternly*

Rachel: Let me see your palm.
Rachel: Let me see your palm. *urgently, and grabs it*
Tim: Rachel, what are you-
Rachel: *runs finger over creases in Tim's hand, and eyes widen in fear* Oh, God...
Tim: What's wrong?
Rachel: *lets go of hand, and backs up* Get away from me.
Tim: Rachel, what's wrong?
Rachel: I said get away from me! *throws the soda, and pushes way out the door*
