The sun had long since set behind the mountain, leaving the sky a deep indigo. The stars sparkled like diamonds as they twinkled in the night sky. Below, two figures moved through the darkness with silent effort, their shadows dancing in the moonlight.
Tommy and Jenna were on a mission of the utmost importance. As brothers, they had promised their father they would venture upon this dangerous journey to find the lost artifact and fulfil his dying wish.
The two had been walking for days and the journey was beginning to take its toll on the adventurers, but neither let their exhaustion dampen their determination. They trudged onward, pushing their tired feet to take one more step and one more until, finally, they could see the destination in sight.
The ancient temple was shrouded in darkness. Its stone walls were covered in a thick layer of vines and brush, but the two knew this was their final destination. Taking a deep breath, they ventured forward and pushed the entrance open.
The inside of the temple was filled with statues and ancient symbols. In the centre of the room was a large altar with a deep blue stone at its centre. Upon closer inspection, they realised it was the lost artifact, the magical stone of power.
Tommy and Jenna exchanged a look of delight. After days of hard work and dedication, their mission was complete. Now, the real adventure was about to begin.
The two explored the temple, discovering secret passageways and strange artifacts. They soon realised the power of the artifact lay in its ability to grant one wish—but it would come with a heavy price.
After much deliberation, Tommy and Jenna decided on a wish—to give their father a miracle and bring him back from the dead. With a heavy heart and a silent prayer, Tommy placed the stone on the altar and uttered the words “I wish my father were alive.”
Suddenly, the temple filled with a bright light and the two heard a voice whisper, “Your wish has been granted.” They were filled with a joy they had never experienced before, and it was in that moment they knew the power of the artifact was real.
Tommy and Jenna wanted to share their newfound joy with the world, so they decided to share their story with others and spread the power of the artifact. Over the years, the tales of the magical stone of power spread far and wide, and many people sought out the artifact for their own wishes.
And so, the story of Tommy and Jenna’s adventure became a classic tale of adventure, of courage and of faith—a reminder to people of all ages that, with a little bit of determination and courage, anything is possible.

The sky is a clear blue as the house sits peacefully against the sunny background.

INT. HOUSE – DAY
GABE (17), a shy but kind boy, is standing alone in an empty house. He looks around with hesitation, trying to find something.
Where is it…?
Suddenly, GABE hears a door open. He turns around to see a middle-aged couple entering the house.
Gabe! Is that you?
Oh, hi Mom, Dad.
Gabe and his parents embrace in a warm hug.
What are you doing here, son?
I was looking for a place to hide…
Why? What did you do?
Nothing! I swear.
Come on, tell us.
Okay, fine. So… this morning I was in the park and I saw a little girl crying. Her balloon had gotten stuck in a tree and she couldn’t get it down. So… I tried to help her get it out.
That’s very nice of you, son.
Yeah, I guess…
But what happened?
Well, I couldn’t get the balloon down. So I climbed the tree and tried to grab it, but it wouldn’t budge. So I kind of… got stuck up there.
MOM and DAD exchange glances and burst into laughter.
I’m proud of you, son. That was very brave of you.
Oh, I bet the little girl was so relieved to have her balloon back.
Yeah, she was really happy.
The scene fades out as the family stands there, smiling at each other.
