BACKSTORY

DJ a black wolf baby blue eyes 6 years old.   3 years ago DJ’s dad committed suicide after drowning pearl (DJ’s sister) and eating DJ’s mom, cause his dad got bit by a rival wolf that had rabies, which made his dad sick in the head.   DJ’s mom hid DJ in a tree hole before dad killed her.   Pearl 35 who is a spirit that lies within and lives in the water.   Pearl really wants to come back to life but fears coming back to life would scare DJ because he saw her die.   DJ wants pearl to give him knowledge so he can take a journey but Pearl wants him to learn on his own.

Settings: Volcano erupting, their on the shore of the water, wind blowing.

Time: Early in the morning.

At Rise: DJ is pacing back and forth.   Pearl is on the water.

 


DJ:

I’m not feeling coo today sis, and you being dead ain’t making it any better.

Pearl:

What’s wrong?   Are you still mad because I won’t give you any knowledge for your journey around the world?

DJ:

Yes, I’ve been thinking about it all night.   Can’t you at least give me something?

Pearl:

Nope!

DJ:

O.K. well then I’m going on my own.

Pearl:

Good that’s what I want you to do.

DJ:

How about I die and you be resurrected? That way you fin to get what you want off top.

Pearl:

Don’t you know that you my lil Brah and I love you too much to do that any way.   You can try to run game on me all day long but it aint’ bout to work.

DJ:

Fuck it then I’m fin to go 51-50.   Which means that I’m fin to kill myself.

Pearl:

That’s bout to even better cause then we bout to be together forever.   Then I can watch over you and make sho you don’t do anything stupid.

DJ:

What about mom and dad, they both died, you died and I’m the only one standing out of the whole family.   You want me to just die and not leave any thing for your future generation?   Won’t that affect you emotionally?   You won’t be able to see my family and a smile on my face the same time, if I die you ain’t fin to see none of that you can kiss that shit good bye.

Pearl:

You got a point.

Toby:

And on top of that ain’t you wish to come back to life so you can be seen. I’m not gone to be able to see you ain’t nobody else fin to be able to see.

Pearl:

Why it got to be put all like that?

DJ:

I thought you knew ain’t you supposed to be the queen to many worlds?   A volcano fin to erupt and everybody’s fin to die including me.

Pearl:

All right! All right! But this is the only favor I’m bout to do for you ever again, everything else you bout to have to do on your own.

Pearl:

As for me I got my wish but it was only for an hour.   During my hour I didn’t really feel any different.   I felt the same as before.   So my lesson in life was to learn how to be more patient, take things as they come and not as I want, so I’ve become more wiser…… It was a lesson to be learned.

DJ:

And I finally got to see things I ain’t never seen before like snow on the trees in Alaska that looked like a bunch of zig zagged stars put together, or like seeing the bottom of an ocean through the surface of the water in Hawii that looked like the sky on a bright and sunny day and it felt like I was floating in mid air.   On my journey I met many different things like seals with big teeth and these fish that look like they finna blow up, they were bright yellowish orange and as big as a hot air balloon.    I also got to scuba dive in New Mexico.   Down there I got to see the wonderful world of the ocean life.   I saw these funny looking worms that light up at night, and I got to see some energetic ass dolphins, I swear they looked like a bunch of wild gorillas chasing each other thru the trees… the water world was better then the land world….. at least I thought so.

The End.
