SETTING 😦 JOSH’S KITCHEN)

JOSH: (Fingering his fishing rod.)
Mum can I go fishing with August today?
MUM: (Now an alien accomplice)
Have you done your homework?
JOSH:
Yes Mum. August has been helping me; I don’t know how I would have got through the math test without her. She’s a genius!
MUM:
Yes, Josh, she is clever, but she’s no genius.

JOSH:
Well, I think she is. August is the smartest student the school has ever had! Mr. Taylor the headmaster, said she is a phenomenon, what does it mean Mum?
MUM:
It means she is quite good that’s all.
JOSH:
Are you sure? Mr. Lane the Science teacher said August is the best student he’s ever seen!
She told me she can figure out the ‘Hodge Conjecture.’ What does it mean Mum?
MUM:
Yes dear, it’s a pity that Brandy can’t take a shine to her.
JOSH:
I know. I hate to leave him at home when we go fishing.
MUM:
Don’t forget to take your rucksack with your waterproofs, it could rain.
JOSH:
You know Mum; it has never rained while August and I have been out together. It is as though she can control the weather!
MUM:
Don’t be silly Josh, and don’t be too long.
JOSH:
Where’s Dad, Mum?
MUM:
He had to go to the station to help them with something urgent. (Josh’s Dad is actually in the garage under sedation brought on by the micro needle inserted by August’s Dad, Martin Johnson.)

JOSH:
You know Mum, I don’t say this very often, but I think you and Dad are the best parents anyone could ever wish for. (Josh expects his Mum to come over and hug him as usual. But she looks on expressionless.)
JOSH: (Looks at his mum.)
Are you OK Mum? You look different.
MUM:
Yes, I am alright, I am tired; I will have a sit down for a few hours.
JOSH:
Do you mean a lie down?
MUM:
No. Yes. Please go. My neck aches.
JOSH:
OK Mum. Bye. ‘Love you.’
MUM: (No response.)

SETTING: AUGUST’S GARDEN:
JOSH: (Leaning on a garden post holding the fishing rod and trying to look cool.)
Hi August, are you ready?
AUGUST:
Hello Josh, did you manage to do the homework?
JOSH:
Yes, thanks to you higher math isn’t a problem anymore.
AUGUST:
Shut the gate quick, Brandy is coming!
BRANDY: (barking and snarling behind fence.)
JOSH: (slams the gate while still trying to be cool.)
Wow! I’ve never seen him this bad.
AUGUST:
Please tie him up next time. I’m frightened.

JOSH:
I’m sorry August; I don’t know why he doesn’t like you?
AUGUST:
He is an animal and animals don’t recognize higher-consciousness.
JOSH:
What do you mean?
AUGUST:
It is time I told you about myself and my parents.
JOSH: (Joking.)
Why are you Aliens?
AUGUST:
Let us walk to the river and I will explain.
SETTING: THE RIVERBANK.
JOSH:
This is my favorite spot, look you can see the fish just over there!

AUGUST:
Josh, please put the rod down, I want to talk to you seriously.
JOSH:
Please August. You know I get nervous when you say things like that. Let’s just enjoy the fishing.
AUGUST:
Do you want to be someone important when you grow up?
JOSH:
Of course, but I want to enjoy fishing too. I really like fishing August, you know that.

AUGUST:
I know you do, but I want to show you something that will interest you more than fishing.
JOSH:
Nothing will ever take the place of fishing, August.
AUGUST: (Looks up.)
JOSH: (Looks up open mouthed.)
SCENE CHANGES TO SKY: (Giant UFO appears directly above them.)
