Elizabeth [Ghost-Story, A]

Elizabeth, twin-brother Noah & best-friend Jennifer walk-home barefoot having-attended 1843 Christmas-Eve celebrations at the Henry J Fate Flour-Mill. Twins are tragically-killed in a 'road-traffic-accident'.

Opening-scene; standing on the dirt-road [NO-pavement/sidewalk] a few steps away from the stone-wall entrance of the Henry J Fate Flour-Mill, camera moves-past gate-keepers [night-watchman’s] wooden-hut [on the right-hand-side] across the cobble-stones toward & through the school-room window.

Moving forward to the table nearest-lectern camera focuses-upon Jennifer & her best-friends Elizabeth & Noah listening-intently to their-employer reading closing Christmas Carol paragraphs... ‘God bless-us everyone’.
Closing the book Henry thanked the children for attending the modest flour-mill seasonal-celebrations; standing quietly, the children dutifully lined-up, thanked Henry & wife Zoë as they collected a token-bonus of nuts, flour...

Walking-home barefoot Jennifer fell-behind a few paces, holding the Royal Oak wall for-balance as she brushed the soles of-her-feet to remove stones that had been hidden under the light-dusting of-snow.

Standing upright she caught-sight of a pair-of-horses impact Elizabeth & Noah, their bodies falling-lifeless on-the-road.

Tolling of single church-bell; screen fades-to-black.

We move to 21st-century with Valerie standing by the Royal Oak wall, husband Allan walking-up behind wife of 30yrs.

Elizabeth is hidden-from-view...

Alive-&-mortal Elizabeth & Noah get to live in the 21st-century.

44. Antique-Store [wip]

Jennifer stared with trepidation at Phoebes cell [mobile] phone screen ‘My twin-daughters Phoebe & Anna visited the High Street antique-store this-morning; the associate took their picture holding a mahogany mirror, inscription on the rear clearly-reads Pure-Of-Heart I Wish To Learn The Truth‘.

Valerie did NOT hesitate ‘Were I in your position I would buy & use that mahogany-mirror; I suspect both daughters-&-yourself are magically-connected.’ ‘Had I NOT met Elizabeth & Noah, experienced the 19th-century, I would-have doubted, today, I believe’.  

‘As-it-happens Elizabeth wowed boss Henry & wife Zoë a century-&-more before Frankie Lane & here-she-is.’; Valerie loved her iPad & treasured priceless audio-video archive.

‘I carry a fob-watch for-luck, left-to-me by Elizabeth in a metal-box with photographs; Allan would-prefer I keep in safety-deposit-box. Quite-valuable, I use my radio-signal corrected wrist-watch to keep-track of-time.  

The 12-guinee receipt is safely locked-away‘.
