List of Characters:
- Elijah, older brother

Setting: We are out of town for the weekend, and staying in a hotel. The room we booked has two queen beds, plus a pull-out sofa bed.
Scene 1: In the Minivan
Elijah: "Hannah doesn't want to sleep in the sofa bed, but I want to."
Sender: "Well, I want to sleep there, too."
Elijah: "Let's play rock-paper-scissors. Two out of three."
(Game is played. Elijah wins.)
Elijah: "Yes! I get to sleep in the sofa bed."
Scene 2: In the hotel room
(Sender is in the bath. Elijah tries out his bed.)
Elijah: "Ugh! This bed is not comfortable. I want to sleep in the regular bed."
(Elijah thinks for a moment, and then goes to the bathroom.)
Scene 3: In the bathroom
Elijah: (in a sweet, soft voice) "Sender, do YOU want to sleep in the sofa bed?"
Sender: "Yes, but do YOU want to?"
Elijah: "I'll let you sleep there if you want."
Sender: "OK! Thank you, Elijah."
Elijah: "You're welcome."
Everyone got what they wanted, and everyone had a good night sleep.
