EXT. NOWHERE - THE BEGINNING
A BOY and a GIRL barely visible in the dark. They seem to be

It started with a story. With two
souls who told each other tales in
the inky, twinkly, infinite black
The girl peers out into the black, afraid. The boy puts his
arm around her, smiles to cheer her.
I wish there was something beneath
me. Something soft between me and
the bottomless nothing.
How about a bed of gold dust? A
soft carpet to embrace you.
And beneath and around them, an endless golden sand sparkles
