Straton: “Hey guys. What are you doing here? I thought you were staying back

        

Max: “We decided to come to help you on the expedition. It seems fun.”

 

Straton: “It won’t be that fun. I mean, we’ll get to go eat at fancy restaurants and sleep in an old mansion, But other than that, it’s boring.” 

 

Cooper: “And that’s why we came! Besides, I’ve never eaten out or slept somewhere else than my house.

 

Max: “Me neither.”

 

Straton: “Well, if you’re going to hang out with me, then come. It’s time for dinner!”

 

All exit.

 

Fancy building. Straton, Max, and Cooper enter. Pat is waiting for them to arrive. 

 

Pat: “ Hey, straton! Long time no see man!”

 

Straton “Pat! How’s it going!”

 

Pat: “It’s going great. Hey, did you hear what they’re dishing out today? Bass sushi, fresh from the market.”

 

Straton: “Great! haven’t had that meal in a long time.”

 

Cooper: “Well? Where’s the food? I’m starving!”

 

All sit-down. Taz, the waiter comes with the sushi.

 

Taz: “Hey guys! Ready for food?”

 

Max: “Yes, I’m starving!

 

Taz sets down food. Walks away. All start eating.

 

Max:” Finally I have been waiting for an eternity!

 

Straton: “Mmm, This is delicious, although there’s a weird taste to it.”

 

Max:” I agree it has a weird texture and taste than normal sushi.
