Little Andrew wakes up in the morning only to find both his parents frozen like statues. He goes outside and finds out that the entire neighborhood is frozen as well. All people have been turned to stone. Suddenly his dog Ruffles starts to talk. Write a scene that shows how the boy discovers the issue and talks to the dog trying to make sense of what has happened. Make the child about 7 years old and write from his POV. Really make us feel his fear and surprise.
