Okay. I guess you're old enough now for a jaunt like this.

Come on, you said the sandbar. Are you giving up?

Are you sure you'll make it? You look pretty tired to me.

TONY!!!

When he went under I tried to find him... But I couldn't. He just ... disappeared!

Oh Joel!

Will you sit with me until I fall asleep?

Of course.

I guess you're old enough now for a jaunt like this.Tony challenges Joel to climb Starved Rock with him. Joel is secretly scared and decides to ask his dad if he can go, knowing his father will say no. To Joel's surprise, he says he can go. Joel now feels trapped, not wanting to look like a coward, but not wanting to go either. Rising ActionCome on, you said the sandbar. Are you giving up? | Are you sure you'll make it? You look pretty tired to me.On the way, Tony changes his mind and wants to go swimming in the Vermillion river. They are not allowed to go swimming because the currents are really strong. The boys agree to race to the sandbar. Joel is a good swimmer but when he looks back, he realizes Tony cannot swim very well at all. They stop halfway, but Tony insists they finish the race. ClimaxTONY!!!Joel makes it to the sandbar first, but when he looks back for Tony, he is nowhere to be found. At first Joel thinks he is hiding, but then he realizes that Joel is a bad swimmer and he went under. He goes back in the river to try to find Tony, but gets sucked back in himself. He is able to reach a log and pull himself to safety. A teen boy stops to help Joel look, but they don't find Tony. Falling ActionWhen he went under I tried to find him... But I couldn't. He just ... disappeared! | Oh Joel!Joel is torn with going home and telling his parents the truth, or making up a lie. He lies to his parents as well as Tony's parents, saying he came home while Tony went to Starved Rock. But when the police came, Joel told everyone the truth of what happened. DenouementWill you sit with me until I fall asleep? | Of course.After telling the truth, Joel is overcome with guilt. His father sits with him and tries to comfort him.
