Storyboard Text

  • Why is Calvin being so nice to me? It's kind of suspicious, but at least he is a better parent than my mom Daisy.  
  • Thanks for letting me come over. I don't know where Donny is and I am so worried that he is dead. Do you know where he could be? 
  • I'm sorry Mrs. Daisy I already told you that I don't know where he is, but I'm sure he'll come to his senses soon.
  • I think that Cal is up to something. I can't shake the feeling that something isn't right. I'm going to sneak into his house and search for Donny on my own. 
  • Thanks Calvin for letting me stay, but I think I'm gonna head back home. Even though Daisy isn't as cool as you, she's probably worried and I want her to know I'm ok. 
  • I don't think that's a great idea. Look I'm done playing games. You are staying here weather you like it or not!
  • Donny, I've been worried sick about you! Look I just wanted to know if you were ok. If you want to stay with Cal, then I understand. 
  •     I thought Calvin was a good guy, but it turns out he isn't. I know we haven't had the best relationship, but I want to live with you. 
  • So Donny and Daisy ran away from the evil Calvin and called CPS on him to help the others that were living in his house. Daisy and Donny salvaged their relationship and Donny's grades improved. THE END!
