EXT. PARK – DAY
MARTA (14, small, warm, loyal) is driving a pony bike. Behind her, on the same bike, sits UNA (14, cute, obedient, careful), she’s holding on tightly to Marta’s waist. Marta gets up in order to press the bicycle more easily. They reach a steep path. Marta sits.
Marta tries to press the brakes, but they seem to be broken.
Marta skilfully avoids a group of people in their way. She abruptly turns the bike to the left, off the path and on the grass. It’s still steep and the bike is shaking and Marta is doing her best to keep it straight. Una squeezes Marta and closes her eyes.
They run into a tree root, Marta tries to avoid it but it’s too late. They lose balance and fall down. Marta falls on her palms, knees, and chin, and Una’s fall is eased because she falls over Marta.
Una gets up and starts cleaning her clothes. She’s annoyed.
Marta just wipes the blood from her knee. Una looks at her, sees her “wounds” and frowns. Marta makes a hand gesture as if to say „it’s nothing, I‘m fine“.
Una smiles and sits next to Marta. They sit in silence and look at the bike, a few meters away from them. It’s ruined. The sun is low. SOUND OF CHILDREN LAUGHING AND PLAYING IN THE DISTANCE, BIRDS AND WATER FOUNTAIN.
