AFTER THE STORM

WRITTEN BY WARREN SAGER

The scene begins with a couple sitting in a boat and acting as though they had just been through a storm that is now calm.

HE
Are you okay?
SHE
I guess so. Wow…that was quite a storm! I was getting kind of worried.
HE
Yeah, me too. Pretty scary, wasn’t it?
SHE
You seemed so “in control”, though! You really handled the boat well, I thought!
HE
I didn’t want you to be more upset than you already were. I tried to be confident and stay calm.
SHE
Well, it worked. I never for a minute doubted your ability. You’re right, if I thought you were not in control of the situation, I would have been far more frightened.
HE
There is just only so much you can do. I put all my boating skills to work and tried hard to keep the boat afloat and just survive that thing. But it could have really done us harm. The last thing you want is a capsized boat out on the lake in the middle of a storm.
SHE
That storm came up so fast, too! It didn’t look that bad when we started out.
HE
I’m surprised there’s not more water in here. It was sure splashing in.
SHE
Let’s head back in, okay? Just in case another storm comes through, and it’s worse than the last one.
HE
Even if it wasn’t worse than that one…I don’t want to deal with it anymore. I’ve had enough boating for one day!
SHE
I’m with you there! We were really lucky this time. We could have ended up a lot worse! We could have drowned!
HE
I know. Why do you suppose we survived it?
SHE
What do you mean?
HE
You know…the reason behind it.
SHE
What…are you getting all spiritual now? Trying to make something of this?
HE
Why not? Don’t you think everything happens for a reason?
SHE
I guess I think that sometimes…but then sometimes I just think it’s part of life.

(To be continued…)
