Sound of water dripping

Fred: Uh! Where am I? Jack? Biff? Mr. Bailey? Can anyone hear me?

Girl's voice: I can hear you!

Fred: Who's there? I-I can't see you.

Girl's voice: It's me! My name's Sally, what's yours?

Fred: Fred.

Sally: Are you okay, Fred?

Fred: I think so. My head's a little woozy, must have hit it when I fell.

Sally: Oh no! Did you get lost, too?

Fred: Well, sort of. What I mean is...

Eerie music starts

Fred: That I was camping with my Scout troop by the lake near Flatwoods. There were these lights kinda dancing in the sky.

Sally: Neat!

Fred: I guess. Anyway, we heard some weird noises and the guys double dog dared me to go look, so I did.

Sally: All by yourself? You're really brave.

Fred: Shucks, thanks. I followed the noises to an entrance of an old mine. It smelled awful there like rotten eggs, but worse. Suddenly there was this bright light shining down on me. I was super scared and ran to the mine to hide, but everything felt strange like my feet weren't even touching the ground. Everything went black and I woke up here in the dark.

Sally: That all happened to me, too! We'll just do what my dad says, "When you strayed or lost foot, do what's best and stay put!" They said they'd bring him soon.

Fred: There are other people here?
