Following shot: Annabel carries hot tea from kitchen
Through dining room to parlor window seat
Exterior shot of farmhouse with Annabel in window
Rhythmic sound of shoes clopping together
Noon sun burns down
On the porch steps sits a young boy banging his shoes together to break mud away
“Nathaniel!” yells the woman, “Come in out of the sun!”
Turning, the boy hollers back, “In a minute!”
Eventually, Nathaniel goes in.
Annabel sips her tea.
