Storyboard Text

  • Initial Event
  • “There was still the numbers on the card. They must mean something. If he could figure out what that was, he might still impress the man. A combination? No. there wouldn’t be decimals in a combination.” (p.g 36).
  • Propels the Action By…
  • Outcome
  • Carver sneaks into Miss Petty’s office after seeing her talk with the mystery man he thought would lead him to Roosevelt. Once Miss Petty and Hawking leave, Carver finds coordinates that he decides to follow. 
  • Initial Dialogue
  • “I’m not stupid,"
  • "I didn’t say you were. Put words in my mouth and I’ll bite your fingers off..."
  • Carver’s decision to follow the coordinates propels the action because he is led to Albert Hawking and Miss Petty’s location where he then finds out that Hawking would like him to be his apprentice. But, Carver finds out that he proved himself worthy of this by following those numbers on the back of the card on Miss Petty’s desk. He only found this card because he snuck into her room after her and Albert’s departure.
  • Propels the Action By…
  • Carver had always wanted to work with a detective, which was his dream job. Finding the card, following the coordinates, and finding Miss Petty and Hawking proved him worthwhile to have as an apprentice. Therefore, Carver just might be able to pursue his dream
  • Outcome
  • Carver constantly questions Hawking’s criticism causing Hawking to get frustrated and teach Carver how he should word things or what he should do in situations.
  • "...Even the best mind can tumble into an abyss when it’s expectations are thwarted."
  • This event propels the action of the story because, Carver’s commentary on Hawking’s criticism causes Hawking to get a bit frustrated and try and give Carver a little pep-talk on how he should word things.
  • This whole cycle keeps the plot going because Carver, being the curious person he is, will probably keep making comments on Hawking’s judgement, which most likely will cause Hawking to continue to teach Carver. This will likely push Carver too improve his skills and knowledge so he can impress Hawking.
