Dialogue Introduction - I'm STILL Hearing Voices!!

Hello!! Here today I have Piper and Todd to introduce one another through dialogue.

"I still don't understand why we have to have night games over here."

"Face it, Pipes. Your house is weird. And people kind of think you're weird because you never show them otherwise."

"Gee, thanks. Your new friends told you I'm weird?"

"They didn't have to."

"If I'm so weird, maybe you should just hang out with them instead."

"Don't be like that. You know I've always wanted to be on the team. You just have to put yourself out there. Talk to them instead of waiting for them to talk to you."

"Talk to them, sure. The kids who spend every second of their lives putting me down."

"I think they want to know if it's all true. The secret passageways. The floating door."

"But they can already see that. I mean, it's only on the side of my house."

"Come on, let them know who you really are. They think you're some closet freak."

"I don't know."

"They'll be nice. They're really cool."

"If you say so."

Ta dum! There's a glimpse of Todd and Piper!!

I'm hearing British accents, but I'm thinking that's because I just watched part of Mansfield Park.

It's perfect! Love the dialogue, and love the relationship. It's so "spot on" with how high school is too. Love this!

Floating door, huh? Great concept. High school is a bit of a jungle, isn't it? Roland

Kelley said...

Ooo, sounds like one of the characters in one of the manuscripts I'm writing. A good person that people just don't understand.

Very cool!

They sound like really young characters. Are they young? If so, you've got a great voice for young ones.
