(Sound of night bugs chittering.)

(Sound of a bobby pin manipulating a lock.)

(Sound of footsteps on marble.)

(Sound of several stepped over thresholds.)

(Sound of official papers disturbed.)

(Sound of decision.)

(Sounds 2-­5 again, in reverse.)

(Prolonged sound of night bugs.)

(Sound of a distant bonfire: voices, laughter, toasting glasses, burning leaves.)
