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.
