Jimmie meets Subhi

Storyboard Text

  • Jimmie sits in the dirt, watching  the fence, the lights, the cameras and the shadows for a long time. Jonah had taught Jimmie how every fence has a weak spot. It was only a matter of finding it....
  • WARNING: TRESPASSERS WILL BE PROSECUTED
  • DANGER!
  • [Subhi] .....I can't sleep. I stay awake thinking about the Night Sea and its creatures. I want the waves to make me float.
  • So I get up and take my duck outside, careful to push open the tent flap quietly. 
  • I want to see the sea!
  • Do you lot have any bikes? Huh! I knew Max was lying. So what's your name?
  • But there's no sea. Not even a puddle. Right in front of me, standing with her shoes, her flaming, pointy hair, and her book and a bag, is a girl. She smiles. She stares at me, hocking up some snot. She asks me a few questions and then leaves.
  • Is she our guardian angel??
  • Subhi, what's yours?
  • Its been 8 days since I last saw her (I haven't told anyone about her,) and this time she talks to me for real. She tells me about her brother Jonah and her name, "Jimmie!" She shows me her bone sparrow necklace that she hides inside her shirt. Then I lead her to the corner near the Alphas so that I can read her mother's book for her and the cameras won't see the torchlight.
  • Wow! He can read!
  • Shakespeare duck is right. This girl is somewhat cool...
  • As I read for her, Jimmie remains still as she closes her eyes and listens. As the story goes on, I wonder about Jimmie's mum - how many places had she visited?. When the story stops suddenly, I frown. And as Jimmie stands up to leave, there is a tightness in my chest I can't explain. I wonder when she'll be back again.
  • "This is a tale from long, long ago. Anka was born from an egg..."
  • How many places has Jimmie's mother visited? When will Jimmie be back??
