Happy You Near!

Happy You Near!

EXT. VERANDAH, OVERLOOKING FARM – NIGHT

[An old man sits in a large cane armchair. At the railing, stand an old woman, a woman, and a young girl, looking out over a city skyline hemmed by gum trees and a snaking river.]

[In the quiet, a bug zapper cracks gently.]

[The old man grabs the hand of the old woman and gently tugs her back into the chair with him, folding her in his arms.]

OLD MAN: Happy You Near.

[He rocks the old woman in his arms back and forth as they both laugh.]

OLD WOMAN: Oh, Ken!

[Fireworks spark in the distance.]

[The small girl looks up at her mother and smiles. The mother smiles back and puts her arms around the young girl to pull her close as they look out at the now sparkling skyline.]

THE END.
