Storyboard Text

  • What's the matter, Schatz?
  • I've got a headache.
  • You go up to bed, you're sick.
  • One hundred and two.
  • He came into the room to shut the windows. He was shivering, his face was white, and he walked slowly as though it ached to move.
  • 'Why don't you try to go to sleep? I'll wake you up for the medicine.
  • I'd rather stay awake. You don't have to stay here with me, Papa, if it bothers you.
  • When I came downstairs he was dressed, looking a very sick and miserable boy of nine years. When I put my hand on his forehead I knew he had a fever.
  • When the doctor came he took the boy's temperature.
  • You can't come in, you mustn't get what I have.
  • I sat at the foot of the bed and read to myself while I waited for it to be time to give another capsule. It would have been natural for him to go to sleep, but when I looked up he was looking at the foot of the bed, looking very strangely.
  • It was a bright, cold day, the ground covered with a sleet that had frozen. ice. I took the young Irish setter for a little walk up the road and along a frozen creek.
  • At the house the boy had refused to let anyone come into the room.
