By the Time the Sun Rises

inspired by the play ¨'night, Mother¨ by Marsha Norman.

Serena has given up hope. She cannot have a good life. The only person she has to live for is her mother....but now she may end up giving up on her, too.
¨Goodnight, Mama. By the time the sun rises, I'll be gone.¨

11. 11 - The End

Serena is sitting on the bed with Father's pistol in her hands.

She stands, bringing the pistol to her temple.

Her eyes are fixated on the clock.

 

Mama turns the knob to Serena's room.

7:59

 

Mama sees the gun, sees Serena's hand, sees Serena's head.

¨No!!¨

 

8:00

 

Something smacks against Serena's hand just as she pulls the trigger.

 

The gunshot shatters the sky, and Mama's scream is abruptly cut short.

 

Serena stares, wide-eyed, at what lays on the floor in front of her.

 

Mama's body.

 

Serena screams, brings the gun back to her temple,

and squeezes the trigger.

 

 

The shot is loud enough the hit the moon, bounce off, and be heard around the entire planet Earth.
