Storyboard Text

  • I thought Adeline might like an egg for breakfast once in a while. My number is thirty-one and hers is thirty-seven. Mama is always bringing me eggs on sundays even though i tell her not to.
  • I can’t stand eating them, especially the way they soft-boil them here, with the yolk all runny. Reminds me of snot. Yesterday I wrapped a half-eaten egg in my paper napkin and trashed it in the wastebasket in the study when no one was looking. Unfortunately Ma Mien (Horse-Face) Mother Valentino came across it and fished it out.
  • At first i denied it was mine, but she merely pointed to the number on the shell. "It's a sin to waste food like this when so many of your countrymen are starving to death!" she screamed. then she forced me to get a spoon and eat it.
  • The girls start talking about how they don't like eggs and how they tell their mum but she keeps sending them.
  • Later that day, i sneaked into the kitchen and changed the number on my egg from one to seven. thought Adeline might get a kick having her number called for a change! How was i t know she hates eggs? All i'm aware of is that she gets neither eggs or visitors on Sundays
  • They say Adeline is brilliant, but to me she's rather pathetic too. Rushing around in that infantile brown dress looking like a refugee fresh off a junk from the mainland. Never gets any letters either, though she's always first in line the mail gets delivered. I heard Monica say to her yesterday, 'expecting a letter from someone? I wouldn't hold my breath if i were you!'
  • One of the girls explains how she threw out an egg and one of the mothers fished it out.
  • Monica is just unhappy she and Adeline will be in the same class next term after the holidays. No brain likes to be upstaged. in spite of how she dresses, i think Adeline will be ok eventually. she has a sort of special spirit, and its a persons inner core that counts, don't you think?
  • she then continues explaining how she was forced to eat the egg.
  • The girls abut hat they did and how they made it seem like Adeline had received an egg.
  • The girls continue taking about Monica and how she is just upset that Adeline is joining her class after holidays.
  • After the lunch bell sounded the girls left Adeline waited a while before leaving the toilet stall, she stared at herself in the mirror with mixed emotions.
