Narrator: This story is about a young boy name Johnny who meets Rab, but this is what REALLY happened. Johnny, the young fellow, was looking for a job after he had burnt his hand. Johnny has been having a hard time finding a place that will accept him, with his maimed hand. He decided to walk into the Lorne's workshop.
The Lorne's workshop was a printing press. In there, a young man was interviewing a lady, who seems to have lost her pig.
Johnny: *Walks in*
Rab: So, you claim your pig missing?
Pet owner: Yes! Myra, my pet pig is missing! Here's her picture.*Hands Rab pic.*
Rab: That's a pig? *camera zooms in on picture*
Owner: Yes, She does tricks too!
Rab: You don't say? Never thought it was possible… you know, teach a pig tricks.
Pet owner: Well, yes, she is a VERY smart pig. I must be on my way now. Please put this article in your paper. And thank you, Rab. *Turns away and exits stage*
Rab: Hello there.
Johnny: *Mouth gaping*
STAGE CREW: (PUT HEARTS ON JOHNNY!)
Johnny: Uhh… Hello…
Rab: So…*looks awkwardly with one eye brow raised at Johnny* Uhh… Can I help you?
Johnny: Oh! Yes! Sorry! Uh, can you tell me anything about the job offerings here?
Rab: *Gestures toward the table where the cheese and bread are* Sure. Sit down and have something to eat.
Narrator: Johnny was delighted of the offering and sat down extremely close to Rab.
Rab: *Moves his chair to the other side of where Johnny is sitting* Anyway, we have one job offering. But, first, why don't you tell me a little about yourself?
Johnny: Oh my! Sure thing!
Narrator: Johnny tells Rab the story of his life. Rab was looking at Johnny like he was insane.
STAGE CREW: (HOLDS UP A SIGN SAYING 10 MINUTES LATER)
Johnny: And that's my story!
Rab: Uhh… cheese and bread? *Holds out cheese and bread* Would you like some? Anyway we do have a job. You have to deliver the papers I make. But, I don't think that it is a job you would want…
Narrator: Johnny was thinking "There's someone else isn't there?"
Johnny: Why wouldn't I want it?
Rab: Well, you have to ride a horse. A very… jumpy horse. *Looks at Johnny's hand*
Johnny: *Shoves his hand in his pocket and slams his other hand on the table* I'LL TAKE IT!
Rab: I had a very strange feeling that you were going to say that…
Narrator: Just then, Cilla cartwheels into the room.
Cilla, a very beautiful young lady, is in love with Johnny.
Cilla: Hello Johnny.
Narrator: Johnny is too busy staring at Rab to notice her
Rab: hello, who are you
Narrator: But Cilla sees the way Johnny is looking at Rab and burst into tears.
Thinking he hears a dying cow, Johnny turns to see what's going on.
Once Johnny looks at her, Cilla stops crying immediately.
Johnny: Oh Hi, Rab this is Cilla, Cilla this is Rab.
Rab: Oh hello there. What do you need?
Cilla: I was just on my way home and saw Johnny in here, and thought I'd stop in to say hi.
Rab: If you want I could walk you home.
Narrator: As they start to leave Johnny abruptly screams:
Johnny: NO DON'T LEAVE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*cilla and rab stare at Johnny*
Johnny: Sorry, lost my cool there
Rab: Can't lose what you never had
Cilla: *after laughing* I really have to go now
Rab: Okay let's go. *rab and Cilla leave*
Johnny: *Falls to his knees* WWWHHHYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Narrator: And that's how the story of Johnny Tremain REALLY went.
