Scene 1

In the Writopia Lab, in the little room with couches.

 

SUN

Hey, Wind!

 

WIND

(Rolling his eyes at SUN)

What, Sun!

 

SUN

I hear Rain’s gonna flood the area!

(SUN nudging WIND)

Think you can stop it?

 

WIND

Any time, Sun!

 

RAIN

(laughing and bragging)

Ha! Beat me!? My floods wreck the world! I might even start it right now!

 

WIND

What! This very instant! I’ve not prepared anything yet!

 

SUN

OOOoooo! Is wind… scared!

 

WIND

No.

(WIND shivering and trembling)

Just a little cold.

 

SUN

Really? Then, I’m the Sun! I’ll warm you! Or you should have been warm right next to me… Unless you were… no, Wind, scared!?

 

WIND

STOP IT!!!

 

WIND’S face is red, and he is breathing hard.

 

RAIN

(bragging)

Oooooo! The Great Wind! Can’t you fight me?

 

WIND

(comes up with idea)

No, I can’t.

(RAIN and SUN laughing)

But Sun, can you?

 

 

Scene 2

 

SUN

(SUN is frozen. SUN pauses)

Sure I can.

(SUN gets calmer)

Better than you, scaredy Wind!

 

WIND

(WIND frowns)

I’ll be working while you two have your great Sun vs. Rain battle.

 

WIND starts push ups. RAIN and SUN are making loud noises when they fight.

 

SUN

AAHHHHH!!!

(SUN gets struck by RAIN)

 

LIGHTNING

BOOM!!!

(LIGHTNING strikes away)

 

SUN

Hey!

(SUN pushes through the clouds)

I’m going to shine my way through your nasty storm!

 

WIND  

Need some help? I’ve been practicing!

 

SUN

(breathing hard)

No, thank you, but I got it under control!

(LIGHTNING strikes SUN)

Whooo!

 

WIND

Oh really?

 

WIND saves SUN from LIGHTNING

 

SUN

Well…

 

 

Scene 3

 

RAIN

(mockingly)

What, you now want to fight to protect poor, little Sun?

 

SUN

(face burning up)

NOOOOO!!!

 

LIGHTNING

Yea! We will crush you!!!

 

RAIN

Hey, Wind, shouldn’t  you be on our side?

 

LIGHTNING

Yea. Winds are in storms!

 

RAIN

Unless… you want to help your poor Sun?

 

WIND

Well…

(pauses)

why should I help you destroy Earth?

 

RAIN

No, no. We will take over Earth, ruling Earth and its subjects together forever!

 

LIGHTNING

But then wouldn’t Earth’s subjects be dead already from the damage we did?

 

RAIN

Shush, Lightning. You work for me now, remember?

(RAIN’S face burns.)

 

WIND

Yes, Lightning does work for you, I suppose… But on the other hand, she does make a point. Who exactly would we be ruling over?

 

RAIN

(furious)

THE WORLD, DUMMY!

 

LIGHTNING

(curious)

Who on the world?

 

RAIN

Who cares! The world is great!

(burning up)

 

SUN

(whispering to LIGHTNING)

Is she always like this?

 

LIGHTNING

Sometimes.

(pauses)

Only when she’s angered like right now.

 

WIND

(whispering to SUN and LIGHTNING)

I think we know  her secret!

 

 

Scene 4

 

SUN

Really? What!

 

LIGHTNING

You seem really eager.

 

SUN

I’ll get that Rain for what she did to me!

 

LIGHTNING

Oh, right.

(LIGHTNING looking down)

I’m sorry if I hurt you badly.

 

SUN

Oh, it’s fine. I’m okay, by the way.

 

WIND

Alright, guys, we need a plan! Lightning? Any info on this?

 

LIGHTNING

Umm? You basically got it.

 

SUN

Are you sure there is nothing else?

 

WIND

Okay, let’s not scare Lightning! He could strike at us at any moment!

 

SUN

Yea, but —

 

LIGHTNING

We should hurry before Rain turns into a mega storm!

 

SUN

So you do know something!

(SUN raises an eyebrow)

 

WIND

Yea, but what’s a storm without Wind and Lightning?

 

LIGHTNING

Gives a worried glance to WIND and then to SUN

You have not seen the worst of Rain, have you!?

 

SUN

(gulping)

NO!

 

RAIN

(WHOOSH!)

I will destroy Earth and everyone on it! And rule over EARTH once and for all!!!

 

WIND

But again, who is it you will be ruling over?

 

RAIN

Ugh!!! You again! Why won’t you just let me go on with my plans!

(RAIN gets idea)

Or you could just join me.

 

WIND

Uh, yea, no thanks. I work my own way.

 

RAIN

Oh really! We could be best buds, and I really need some help right about now. So? What do you say?

 

LIGHTNING whispers to WIND.

 

LIGHTNING

She is trying to trick you!

 

RAIN

Oh, don’t listen to her. Besides, why would I do that, hmm?

 

WIND

(WIND shakes her head)

I’m not falling for your trap!

 

SUN

Yea, Wind, don’t fall into any of her silly traps! You can beat them anyway!

 

RAIN

Eerr! I was so close! Come on!!

 

LIGHTNING

You’re not getting away with us that easily!

 

 

Scene 5

 

RAIN

How will you destroy me? You’re just a worthless gang of nothingness!!! Ha!

 

WIND

No, we’re not! Sun fought you!

 

SUN shrinks down.

 

RAIN

(mockingly)

Oh, are you gonna “shine your way through me?”

 

LIGHTNING

Hey!

(stepping in front of SUN)

Stop that!

 

SUN

(shivering)

Don’t worry.

(trembling)

I’m fine.

 

RAIN

OOOooooo! Sun’s feeling strong again! Come and fight me!

 

SUN

I would… but…

 

LIGHTNING

But you hurt him!

 

SUN

Hey! I feel as good as ever!

(mumbling)

I’ll get you when I have the chance!

 

WIND

This is getting us nowhere!

 

RAIN

Yea! Where’s the real fight?

 

WIND

I think we’re waiting for those to chatterboxes!

(pointing to SUN and LIGHTNING)

 

SUN

Hey! I can be quiet!

 

RAIN

(snapping)

Then do it, you dum dum!

 

LIGHTNING

(frowning)
Well shouldn’t we have sides?

Everyone has blank expressions on their faces.

 

Sides! You know, teams!

 

Everyone says, “Ohhh.”

 

WIND

But are we not already on teams? Were we not just planning on attacking Rain?

 

LIGHTNING

I think I’m doing this if anyone has mind changes.

 

SUN

Like you?

 

LIGHTNING

NO! I’m on your side now, okay!

 

RAIN

I can defeat all of you!

 

SUN

(mockingly)

What, with your storm? Where’s your Wind and Lightning!

 

LIGHTNING

You’re angering her!

 

SUN

(whispering to LIGHTNING)

I know. It’s all a trap, though!

 

WIND

(fighting SUN)

WHOOSH!

 

RAIN falls on her back.

 

Lightning! NOW!

 

Nodding, LIGHTNING strikes RAIN hard.

 

RAIN

AAAWWWWW!!!

 

LIGHTNING

Oh no, did I kill her!

 

LIGHTNING Looks at RAIN lying on floor. RAIN flings her body at LIGHTNING, and he pushes her away.

 

SUN

Hey!

(pausing)

I really was looking forward to Rain’s death!

 

WIND

Watch out!

 

RAIN jumps on SUN.

 

SUN

Ouch!

 

RAIN

That’s right!

 

RAIN storms closer to SUN’s flames.

 

Feel the pain I felt once!

 

LIGHTNING

(just getting back up)

What do you mean, “feel the pain I felt once?”

 

RAIN

Don’t you know?

 

Everyone shakes their head.

 

Well… an old friend of mine turned against me once… and we fought hard… but I lost… and it was so painful. So now, I will show my anger by my storms that will destroy Earth and take over!

 

RAIN extends her storm.

 

 

Scene 6

 

WIND

But you won’t be ruling over anything!

 

LIGHTNING

And why show your anger like this?

 

SUN

Yea, make up with your friend!

 

RAIN

I can’t. He sent me away and said he would only forgive me if I did this!

 

SUN

Your friend is CRAZY!

 

WIND

Well, your friend would be dead by the time you would be done with your work. Did you tell him that?

 

RAIN

Well…

 

WIND

Now, we will take you to your friend, and you can explain it, right?

 

RAIN

I guess…

 

SUN

(pushing RAIN)

Come on, let’s go!

 

Thirty minutes later.

 

WIND

We’re here!

 

LIGHTNING

WOW!

 

SUN:

(nudging RAIN)

Your friend’s got quite a place here!

 

RAIN

I know.

 

The walls were shining, and the floors sparkled, and RAIN’s friend was treated like a king.

 

WIND

Excuse me, sir, my friend would like to speak with you.

 

KING

(his voice is booming)

Who comes to my feet?

 

RAIN

Hello, my name is Rain.

 

KING

Rain!? Ha! You have returned, but you are NOT the ruler of the world, so bye!

 

RAIN

But, I must say something. If I took over the world with a storm, you would be dead! So I wouldn’t get my end of the bargain! Hmm?

 

KING

(bewildered)

Well… Umm… Guards!

 

SUN

Hey! What’d we do?

 

KING disappears.

 

LIGHTNING

(whispers to RAIN)

Does he always do that?

 

RAIN

(shrugging)

I suppose.

 

WIND

There are too many guards! What do we do?

 

SUN

We run, Dummy!

 

WIND

(looking at RAIN)

Where is King?

 

RAIN

I don’t know! He Just disappeared! Right there, then out of sight! Poof! Gone! I DON’T KNOW, OKAY!

 

SUN

Geez, she just wanted to know.

 

LIGHTNING

Guys, let’s just find King, alright!

 

KING whizzes past them.

 

RAIN

He’s there!

 

SUN

(flinging her head to RAIN)

Where!?

 

RAIN

You just missed him, he was right-

 

WIND

There!

 

LIGHTNING

I’ve got him cornered!

 

SUN

(pushing through)

Really? Where?

 

WIND

Okay, what are you hiding?

 

KING

Look, Rain, I’m sorry for what I did. I was just mocking you about it. I knew I would be dead. Please, forgive me.

 

RAIN

Of course I’ll forgive you.

 

Sun, Wind, Rain, Lightning, and King lived together. Happily together.
