From the published play "The Ghosts of Detention"
by D. M. Larson
(PENNY is the school drama leading lady)
Have you ever made a wish? I make them all the time. I watch for the first star each night. "Star light star bright, first star I see tonight... I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight..." I always make the same wish, but I can't tell what it is. Then it might not come true. I really want it to. It would change my life.
I go to wishing wells with lucky pennies... Those pennies you find that people have lost... Unlucky for them... Lucky for me... Then I toss them in the wishing well in front of the old museum. And I toss them in the fountain at the mall... Each time making my wish. Have you ever wanted anything that badly in your life? So badly that you can't imagine your future without it? I would be so sad if my life wasn't different... If things didn't change... If I was still stuck here... In this life. But I won't stop wishing... I can't... I don't want to be left with nothing... zero... give me some meaning... and make this suffering worthwhile.
