Act one scene one-Intro

Intro- act one scene one. 

( Based in the middle of know where, a middle sized cottage, with an oak wood deck, at the back door. On the decking stands a small lady around 5'4, in her early 30's. her face holds a forced smile, as she looks down at the younger girl in front of her. The young girl is around 7 years old, with a wide smile. she goes up to her mother.

Standing, leaning mainly on one leg, the woman leans down hugging her daughter. Elizabeth smiles and embraces her mother, as her mother, out of the child's sight, closes her eyes tightly. Elizabeth pulls back after a few seconds, and gives her mother, Gloria, a reassuring smile and turns around facing the wheat field.

Elizabeth jumps down the six stairs then begins running off. She lets her hands glide over the tall wheat plants. Her hands are gentle and soft against the delicate stem.

Turning back, Elizabeth's small smile disappears, as she sees the door now shut and her mother gone from sight.

She turns back around and starts to again run through a wheat field. The wheat was being blown by a soft breeze as Elizabeth runs her hands over them gently. The trees stood tall,giving a looming appearance over the little girl, as there autumn leaves cast shadows down onto the ground, they danced around the golden field,like dirt over a golden rock. The sky was blue far above her. Her eyes gleamed as she looked up at the sky with contentment. 

Turning her attention back to the field, she sees an unnatural dip in the wheat. Elizabeth runs for it a slight giggle stirring in her throat. suddenly a boy, aged 17, with messy long dark brown hair and the same green eyes as his little sister, jumps from the dip and bolts into another direction, toward the sun. 

Elizabeth let out a playfully annoyed sigh and pouts, as she is forced to chase after her older sibling. she calls out gently, her voice holds a angelical like charm.)

Elizabeth:
Big Brother! wait up!
(still running, though she slows down a little)

Thomas:
what is it Beth?
(stops, panting lightly, almost inaudible)

Elizabeth:
mum says dinner's ready.
(she walks to him)

Thomas:
(stops)
alright then. 
(takes her hand in a firm strong grip, a little too tight for her)
lets go back, hm? 
(he smiles)

Elizabeth:
(nods a little) 

(they begin to walk back. the sun begins to set, the shadows stretch out trying to grasp the children, though not reaching them. finally the houses shadow covers them , as they walk toward the seemingly dissipated deck, windows all dark, all but a few downstairs, dimly lit by candles or weak light bulbs. 

Thomas pulls his sister a little faster, as the sun descends down behind the golden sheets, leaving there glow non-existing. Finally the once bright and lively farm lands, grew dark with nights comings, and the cold breeze of the midnight blue sky's set in.

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

Prime Rabel: Love the writing and explaining the whole world was simply magnificent. The writer kept the pace up and was eager to finish this novel although it ended so soon. Would be waiting and love to read its next part. Thumbs up to the writer for such a great peace and taking me back to medieval times of...

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them. Abby and Kade's story is a hard one to understand but once you're submerged in their story and love, you can't help but...

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

Alkira Joan: I love this book. this is the only book I have actually cried reading on here and I cry over everything. this book is a great intriguing short read.I would so but this if it was in hard cover.thanks for the great story xoxcan you write a sequel?

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

bansodeyari: The story is really wonderful. It has details (sometimes which are not needed). The story is plotted well. It's lengthy though, but worth reading. It is based on realty which normal people face. Overall I loved it. Peace✌️.
