Just in case it's difficult to read this the script will be at the end.
Characters: Lily Evans age 9-16 and Severus Snape age 9-16
Lily: What is it! What wrong?
Severus: THERE A BUNCH OF WEIRD RED BUMPY THINGS AND THEY’RE ITCH!
Lily:WELL DON’T ITCH THEM IT’LL ONLY MAKE THEM WORSE! They’re just chickenpox its nothing to worry about!
Severus:Chicken……? Pox……? What in the blazes is that? Is it like Dragon pox? Is it dangerous? Can I use it against my enemies?
Lily: Sev Calm down! You’re acting silly!
Severus: SILLY!? I’m no-
Lily: Sev! Be quiet and let me explain. Chickenpox is a muggle disease caused by The varicella-zoster virus. Now the most likely reason you caught this is because someone around you had the disease and coughed or sneezed around you transferring the disease from them to you.
Lily: The result of this is it causes a blister-like rash, itching, tiredness, and fever. Fluid-filled blisters (vesicles), forming from the raised bumps over about one day before breaking and leaking. Crusts and scabs, which cover the broken blisters and take several more days to heal.
Severus: is there a way to keep from getting this muggle sickness?
Lily: Now the best way to prevent chickenpox is to get the chickenpox vaccine. There are several things that can be done at home to help relieve the symptoms and prevent skin infections. Calamine lotion and colloidal oatmeal baths may help relieve some of the itching. Keeping fingernails trimmed short may help prevent skin infections caused by scratching blisters.
Severus: Is there any way it can be treated?
Lily: Acyclovir, an antiviral medication, can be prescribed from your doctor.
Severus: Well that’d be nice except for one thing.
Lily: What’s that?
Severus: Well you know.. my father hates me!
Lily:aww sev don’t say that!
Severus: He’d probably get angry with me for asking and hit me with his nubs. Everywhere!
Severus: yes we’ve been over this!
Lily: sev...I want...I Need to see them!
Lily yes! i’m coming over for dinner tonight!
Severus: Lil no! I don’t want you around hi-
Severus: We’re having poptarts tonight.
