EXT. PARK - DAY A MOTHER and a DAUGHTER lie in the grass, the tops of their heads touching. Their caramel hair is spread around their heads like a halo, and glints in the bright sunlight. MOTHER I used to come here when I was pregnant with you. DAUGHTER Really? MOTHER Mmh-hmm. I used to imagine what it would be like with you in the world. How we would someday lie like this. Head to head, and... just talk. The daughter giggles. DAUGHTER I like just talking. The mother looks at her and smiles. MOTHER Me too. There is a comfortable silence. MOTHER I still remember the air on the day you came to this world. I was here, in this park, ten years ago. It was late autumn, and the weather was perfect. The leaves were the colors of your hair. DAUGHTER Like they are now? The daughter waves her hands up at the trees surrounding them, whose leaves are indeed colors of gold, brown, and orange. MOTHER Exactly, sweetie. The air was brisk, the sky was clear, and I was about ready to pop! My tummy was huge! DAUGHTER It was me, right? The mother sits up and pokes her daughter in the stomach. The daughter shrieks and giggles. MOTHER Yes, you silly goose, it was you. You weren’t expected until a couple weeks later, but I felt you coming. As soon as I noticed you trying to come out, I called your father. He drove me to the hospital, and it was all waiting from there. I remember we talked about names. We fantasized about how you would grow up, what it would be like to raise a daughter. We— we were so excited. The sky darkens, and the mother’s face falls. The daughter notices and begins to worry. DAUGHTER Mommy? The mother is trying to suppress tears, but they fall faintly anyways. MOTHER The doctor’s expression was too much to handle. INT. HOSPITAL ROOM - NIGHT - FLASHBACK A flashback begins, in a hospital room with faded senses. The mother is tired and sweaty, exhausted from giving birth. A man in a white coat eagerly holds up the baby, but his face becomes grave. He faintly whispers “I’m sorry,” but the sound is muffled by the mother’s screams at seeing her limp child. EXT. PARK - DAY The mother is crying freely. Her daughter doesn’t understand. DAUGHTER Mommy? She reaches over to comfort her mother but she realizes her hand is gone, faded as if it were never there in the first place. She whimpers and cries. DAUGHTER MOMMY! The daughter is no longer there. Just simply vanished, with no sign of her ever existing. The mother is alone, sitting on the grass under a gray, cloudy sky. She absently touches her stomach with both hands and speaks through tears. MOTHER I love you.
