Read the following extract and convert it into a continuous write-up in about 120 words:
You may begin with : George flashed a pocket torch and saw the boys looking about….
(George flashes a pocket torch. The boys look about them but not so far up stage as to notice the white models, nor do they see the skull, towards which their backs are turned.)
Tom :  (crossing R. C.). This is a queer place. I wonder if there’s anybody in the house.
George : You’ve picked three empty houses already, and you let us sing the whole of While Shepherds Watched outside the last one before you found out your mistake.
Tom : Well, that’s better than what you did — you picked the house where they had that bulldog.
George : (contemptuously). I wasn’t afraid of the bulldog.
Tom : No, maybe you weren’t: but I’m not sure that the savage beast hasn’t torn off a bit of young Alfie’s suit, and if he has there won’t half be a row! (Alfie fidgets nervously at the mention of his damaged suit.)
Tom : (down R.C.). How much money have we collected?
Ginger : (crossing C. to George). Let’s have a look under the light. (After counting coppers, with the aid of George’s torch.) Eightpence halfpenny.
Tom : (in a tone of disgust). Only eightpence halfpenny — between four of us —after yelling our heads off all the evening! Crikey! Money’s a bit tight round these parts, isn’t it?
George : I told you it was too early for carol-singing. It’s too soon after Guy Fawkes’ day.
(Faint distant scream off R.)
Tom : (startled). What was that?
George: What was what?
Tom : That noise — it sounded like a scream.
George: Nonsense.
Alfie :   (L). Let’s go home.
