Roman watches as she leaves... As WE TIME CUT TO:
INT. SHED - MORNING
Roman lying asleep under the warm blanket. Emery tiptoes
inside, leaving a bowl of LEFTOVER SPAGHETTI beside him.
While inside the house, dire TV NEWS reportage continues:
TV NEWS (O.S.)

... the public is asked to remain
watchful and vigilant...

After Emery tiptoes out, he opens his eyes. Sees the
spaghetti. He takes a tentative bite of one strand. His
eyes open wide -- intrigued... The texture and taste so
foreign to him. Later that night --
INT. SHED - NIGHT
Emery and Roman sit cross-legged on the floor of the shed
underneath a MAKESHIFT FORT made out of DROP CLOTHS. Roman
watches as Emery expertly demonstrates making a STRING FIGURE
out of yarn with her hands.
EMERY

This one‟s called Jacob‟s Ladder...

Roman watches, positively entranced...

EMERY (CONT‟D)

Here. You try.

Emery lifts Roman‟s hands, transferring the string figure to

him. Their warm touch connecting them... The moment
interrupted by the sound of --
DOGS BARKING. Emery stands, looks out the window. Sees TWO
POLICE OFFICERS WITH DOGS on a sweep of the neighborhood,
heading towards the shed.
OFFICER 1 (O.S.)
You smell one of „em, boy?
EMERY
(to Roman, alarmed)
Quick, hide!

But it‟s too late; they‟re right outside now. Without

warning, the cops BARGE into the shed. Roman instinctively
grabs Emery, pulling her behind him, protecting her. The
cops mistake this as a threat --

OFFICER
Get away from her.
