Vicky: Ethan! When I passed your bedroom door, I heard you talking to yourself. What's up?
Ethan: Well... I was practicing for the club play.
Vicky: A play! What's it about?
Ethan: It's a story about friendship. A giant dragon saves a lovely princess.
Vicky: It sounds interesting. What's your part in the play?
Ethan: Why don't you come with Mom this weekend and see it for yourself?
Vicky: Sure! I can't wait!
(After the play)
Vicky: Wasn't Ethan amazing? After he placed the princess on his back, he flew high into the sky. He looked like a real dragon.
Mom: Yeah! The evil prince was amazing, too. When he attacked the dragon, he looked so mean!
Vicky: I think so too. When he bowed on the stage, everyone clapped for him loudly. Mom, how did you like the last part?
Mom: It touched my heart. I cried when the dragon died in front of the princess.
Vicky: Me, too. Look! Ethan's coming this way. Let's talk to him before his fans come.
