Storyboard Text

  • POPPY!!!!
  • I need to find her...
  • I must find her! Lights come back, come back?
  • ¨Poppy!¨ Lina called. ¨Poppy!¨ Her voice rose to a shout. Such a little baby couldn´t have gone far, she thought. 
  • And then the lights flickered, and flickered again, and went out. She stumbled,  caught herself, and stood still. She could see absolutely nothing.
  • Terror swept through her. I must jut stand still, she thought. The lights will come in a few seconds. they always do. But she thought of Poppy alone in the blackness, and her legs went weak. I must find her.
  • Lina: POPPY! Doon: Yeah, we found her before the blackout, so we brang her to our shop Lina: Thank you so much.
  • She took a step When she didn't bump into anything, she took another step, and the fingers of her right hand crumpled against something hard. The wall of a building, she thought. Keeping her hand against it, she turned left a little and took another step forward.
  • The lights suddenly turn on. Lina sprang up. There was the street again, and people looking upward with their mouths hanging open. All around, people started crying or wailing or grinning in relief. Then all at once everyone started to hurry, moving fast toward the safety of home in case it should happen again. 
  • "You shouldn't leave her alone," the flute player added. "I know," said Lina. "You're right."
