This storyboard does not have a description.
There was once a very beautiful woman, who had many admirers, but was stuck in a marriage with an old carpenter.
When Nicholas - who was a scholar in Oxford and secretly loved Alison- needed somewhere to stay, they took him in- which made hime beyond joyful.
But as time went on, Nicholas and Alison gave into each other - and when the old man was out, they slept together. Among Alison's other admirers, was a man named Absolon - who tried to kiss Alison but Alison loved Nicholas.
I WILL SAVE OUR TOWN, WHAT SHALL I DO?
We need 3 giant tubs to fit in so that we can sleep through the flood in them!
You need to help! A flood bigger than god's is coming our way! you are the only one who can save it!
Absolon came to the window and asked her for a kiss. Alison said yes but stuck her behind out of the window. As Nicholas and Alison broke into fits of giggles, Nicholas brought out a poker and when Nicholas stuck HIS behind out the window next, he cried in pain!
After the three giant tubs were prepared and hung from high up, Nicholas and Alison left the old carpenter asleep in the tubs and slept together in his bed.
With Nicholas's cry of pain,the old carpenter thought this was a cry for help because of the flood so he cut the ropes that held the tubs up. The tubs crashed to the floor and the old carpenter was badly injured. He went around the town asking many about what happened about the flood and saying that everyone should pray for the day it does come. Nicholas and Alison told everyone that the carpenter was crazy, and they all believed him.
