BRANDY rolls onto back.

BRANDY rolls toward him.

Their heads touch.

Enter MARCHELINE, crawling, a ghost.

 

MARCHELINE: Mum.
Dad.
Can you see me?
Can hardly see you.
You look like tangles of wool.
I haven’t got any eyes.
There’s no colour.
Anywhere.
Nothing has edges.
It’s fucking horrible.

 

Phone rings. Brandy answers.

BRANDY: What? I thought –
MARCHELINE: Mum.
BRANDY: We were told tomorrow.
MARCHELINE: Mum.
BRANDY: We wanted to be there.

 

BRANDY slams down phone.

MARCHELINE: Dad.
BOBBY: What?
BRANDY: She’s home.
