INT. N’S ROOM – MORNING

N wakes up and looks at the alarm clock: 7:15.  N JUMPS OUT of the bed.  “It’s 7:15!” she shouts.

N wakes 8 up, but 8 does not get up. 

INT. N’S ENTRANCE – LATER

N tells M, “Good bye.” as M walks out the door.

INT. N’S BEDROOM – LATER

N has tears in her eyes when she tells 8 who is still in bed that, “You are not getting anything good out of this.”

INT. N’S DINNING ROOM – LATER

N starts to work on the translation of some German texts at the dinning table.

INT. LESSON ROOM – AFTERNOON

N sits in front of T. Textbooks in front of them.

N’s smile grows empty and weary.

The clock RINGS 1 time.
