Lucy walks with a piece of aper in her hand. She announces, "I'm going to count all the stars even if it kills me!"<BR><BR> She stands outside and look up at the stars. "People say I'm crazy but I know I'm not, and that's what counts!"<BR><BR> She sits on the curb. "I think I'll just sit here until it gets dark."<BR><BR> "This way I can take my time counting the stars..I can mark 'em down as they come out."<BR><BR> "Ha! There's the first one...Dum te da te dum..." She hums to herself.<BR><BR> She stands up: "There's another one...two...three..four...this is a cinch!" Lucy exclaims.<BR><BR> She runs down the block, pointing: "Five...six..oh, oh! Seven eight nine ten..."<BR><BR> She runs: "Eleven twelve thirteen! Oh, my!!" The numbers all run together as she rushes to count them off.<BR><BR> She drops her paper and covers her mouth with her hands: "They're coming out all over!" she cries.<BR><BR> "SLOW DOWN." [PANEL 11]: A number of Lucys run around, shouting out numbers: "Twenty-one, twenty-two, twenty-three, twenty-four...Thirty eight, thirty nine, forty, whew!....Forty-one, forty-two...." She gasps. [PANEL 12]: "Rats!" Lucy exclaims. She sits, panting, on the curb. The sky is dark and full of twinkling stars.<BR><BR>
