EXT. PARK IN NOVI BEOGRAD – DAY
Ksenija is holding Nikola’s hand while she is taking him through the park, decisively, with a quick walk. Nikola’s shoelaces are untied and he is moving slowly after her.
Quit dragging your feet. Hurry up.
My shoelaces are untied. Hold on.
Ksenija stops and waits for Nikola to tie his shoelaces. He is doing it clumsily and starts to complain to Ksenija, expecting that she does it for him.
I don’t know how to do it. Can you do it for me.
You know, how! I’ve shown you so many times.
Nikola continues to tie his shoelaces.
And why don’t we go home?
I told you already – Mum is sick.
She told me to go to Dad’s.
When did she get sick?
I don’t know. This morning. She told me if you are good and if you listen to me, that I should buy you something sweet.
We have no money for it. Don’t be so picky.
I want milkshake!
You will get what I buy you and that’s it. Let’s go.
Nikola gets up and the two go on down the street.
