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.

10. Clifton Suspension Bridge [wip]

The twins were curious as to how their mom, Mary, had survived after their deaths & the chain-of-events enabling their descendants being so prosperous. Did mom re-marry?

Valerie agreed with husband Allan to take a mini-break to Bristol showing Elizabeth & Noah the world-famous Clifton Suspension Bridge.  

There was nothing to compare in Porterville & the thrill of walking-across the 1,352’ [414meter] span, looking-over the barrier to the river 245’ [76-meters] below & picnicking on the grass would be an amazing-experience.

Viewed at-night LED illumination brought-a-tear to Elizabeths-eye; the Porterville she had-known was pitched into-darkness on-all but moon-lit nights. Crime-free deserted dirt-roads were kinda-scary with wild-animals presenting the only-risk in the-darkness.
