The Kid does. He does his best to smile. THE KID A book?
GRANDFATHER That's right. When I was your age, television was called books. And this is a special book. It was the book my father used to read to me when I was sick, and I used to read it to your father. And today, I'm gonna read it to you.
THE KID Has it got any sports in it? THE GRANDFATHER Suddenly passionate. GRANDFATHER Are you kidding? Fencing. Fighting. Torture. Revenge. Giants. Monsters. Chases. Escapes. True love. Miracles.
THE TWO OF THEM as the Grandfather sits in a chair by the bed. THE KID (manages a shrug) It doesn't sound too bad. I'll try and stay awake.
