INT. GARLAND HOUSE - ENCLOSED PORCH - A LITTLE LATER

Henry and Bellamy are on the porch. Harold looks out over

the yard, a bit shell-shocked—

HENRY

It was 31 years ago as of August

28th.

BELLAMY

What was?

HENRY

My son. He drowned. He was playing

down by the river behind the woods.

Fell in. His aunt Barbara-- my

brother's wife-- went in to save

him. Neither made it.

Bellamy is respectful even though he feels he's being played

with—

BELLAMY

I'm sorry to hear that, Mr. Langston.

But what does that have to do with

that boy in there?

Henry turns, looks at him. Bellamy smiles, realizing what

he's getting at—

BELLAMY (CONT'D)

You're not saying... Mr. Langston,

you don't expect me to believe that

boy is...

Henry gives him a slight smile—

HENRY

Well, now, Mr. Martin Bellamy. What

you believe or don't believe is none

of my business, is it?

Bellamy reacts. Henry notices-- Lucille, getting up from

her chair in the kitchen. He heads inside—

HENRY (CONT'D)

(nervous)

Lucille?

INT. GARLAND HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - MOMENTS LATER

Jacob sits and plays with Bellamy's phone. He senses someone

above him, looks up at-- Lucille, standing there. She's

nervous, cautious. Henry's behind her, holding her arm,

worried about her.

Bellamy's behind them, watching.

Jacob looks back at his game. Lucille kneels, slowly reaches

out to touch his hair, still scared, tears welling up in her

eyes. But she stops just short of touching him. She can't.

She's just not ready.

Jacob turns, locks eyes with her. They each take the other

in for the first time. Jacob now recognizes her—

JACOB

You look different.

She smiles involuntarily. And in that smile, the ice is

broken. As if her body is telling her what her brain can't

accept, yet: it's him. She suddenly embraces him, kissing

his head hard all over, tears streaming down her face—

LUCILLE

Jacob.

She pulls his head into her bosom, rocking him, plunging

into this impossible dream. A dream she'd rather stay in

forever than wake up in a reality without her beloved child.

Bellamy watches, stunned.
