--IMPORTANT UPDATE AS OF JULY, 2016--
The opening of "Skinned Knees," the rewrite of "Lost Boys" and subsequently "Time is Never Planned":
It falls apart that winter, when OCD and Briarwood finally cave and reinstate that co-ed camping trip—which, in hindsight, is a super bad idea no matter which way it’s spun. Entitled, cocky, rich teenagers huddling together in the wilderness? Please.
The counselors can’t get anyone to move even a muscle. Okay, so maybe they can get the guys to, but eventually the week long itinerary is balled up and tossed aside; there’s nothing more appealing than sexual innuendos and fluttering eyelashes, whispered promises and sneak peeks of barely-there silk lingerie. Hiking and backpacking pales in comparison.
It unravels slowly but surely:
She does not want to take it that far.
He wants to tell her he loves her, but trips up, listens to the mocking jeers of his friends.
She kisses the wrong boy.
He sees her kiss the wrong boy, heart shattering into a million pieces.
She sees it, too, and devises a plan, makes sure the other two see her kiss someone else’s boyfriend.
The wrong boy is confused.
She sneaks out, boards a bus, remains uncalled for under a bed.
She sees her mother getting it on with her teacher.
He is insensitive, says whatever comes to mind.
He disappears into the shadows.
They run. Collectively. Screaming. Fighting. Kicking. Crying.
They get lost, almost cornered by a bear.
They get expelled.
