Favourite scene I wrote


Lejla lays in bed, asleep. She is covered with a light sheer blanket. Tine comes in  and goes over to sleeping Lejla. He lays next to her. With his finger he  travels over Lejla’s face. 

He covers them both with the blanket. He puts the blanket over their heads – to shelter both of them from the outside world. He closes his eyes.
