Poule – Part 1 of 3

FADE IN:

EXT. BACKYARD – DAY

TITLE: Saturday

ANGLE ON GATE to the MEADOW where THREE CHICKENS’ EYES watch as --

-- a New Hampshire red – we’ll call her BUFFY – struts in front of her audience, pecking occasionally at the grass.

We hear the backdoor opening O.S.

Buffy looks up – too late – as THE GODDESS picks her up --

BUFFY

(low)

Booooaaahhh -

GODDESS

The Goddess looks up from her GLASS OF PINOT GRIS to see --

EXT. BACKYARD – CONTINUOUS

-- Buffy balances on top of the fence a moment before descending to freedom.

She looks up at the house, her eye finding --

INT. KITCHEN – CONTINUOUS

-- The Goddess, watching in silence. She carefully puts her wine glass on the counter.

GODDESS

Right. That’s it.
