West Haven Beaches in my opinion have much to offer, some might disagree seeing that it is Long Island Sound rather than the Atlantic Ocean. For my money, they have some of the nicest beaches in the vicinity of the Greater New Haven Area. In particular, Veterans Memorial Park stands out as a fitting tribute to our men and women who have sacrificed their lives in service for our country and as a beautifully well manicured park along West Haven's beach lined coast. This little spot is worthy of a visit during the day or night; it is well lit during the evening hours which provides a quiet dignified serene majestic feel to this wonderful West Haven resource.

broove - You Are Just Another Me

Rhoda is taking a pleasant stroll along the coast of West Haven, A spacey synthesizer chord starts to play as a male conspiracy theorist's voice can be heard explaining some interesting facts. He say's, Within our lifetimes, We have marveled.

J56.jpg

As biologists have managed to look at ever smaller and smaller things. And astronomers have looked further and further...

J57.jpg

into the dark night sky, back in time and out in space. (Two loud and deep drum rolls are heard.)

J58.jpg

But maybe the most mysterious of all...is neither the small nor the large

J59.jpg

It's us, up close.  (Drum Roll) Could we even recognize ourselves? And if we did would we know ourselves?,

J60.jpg

What would we say to ourselves? What would we learn from ourselves?, (Drum Roll) What would we really like to see...If we could stand outside ourselves...and look at us?

J61.jpg

A simple middle toned violin starts to play as Rhoda explores her surroundings. Rhoda steps from side to side on the broken and old rock platform, Her hair blusters in the cool breeze as she observes distance and time.

J62.jpg

Rhoda sits down as she starts to discover a space and planets puzzle box.

J63.jpg

Rhoda's hair flails in the cool breeze as she concentrates on the puzzle box.

J64.jpg

Rhoda opens her puzzle box to reveal the planet Saturn..... Saturn is the sixth planet from the sun and the second largest in the Solar system after Jupiter, It is a gas giant with an average radius about nine times that of the earth. 
Saturn is big enough to hold more than 760 Earths, Saturn has the lowest density of all the planets, and is the only one less dense than water — if there were a bathtub big enough to hold it, Saturn would float. The yellow and gold bands seen in Saturn's atmosphere are the result of super-fast winds in the upper atmosphere, which can reach up to 1,100 mph (1,800 km/h) around its equator, combined with heat rising from the planet's interior. Saturn spins faster than any other planet except Jupiter, completing a rotation roughly every 10-and-a-half hours. This rapid spinning causes Saturn to bulge at its equator and flatten at its poles — the planet is 8,000 miles (13,000 kilometers) wider at its equator than between the poles. Saturn has at least 62 moons compared to Earth Two's one. Since the planet was named after Cronus, lord of the Titans in Greek mythology, most of Saturn's moons are named after other Titans, their descendants, as well as after giants from Gallic, Inuit and Norse myths.

J65.jpg

Rhoda studies the puzzle box as she turns it over to reveal it's other side, Rhoda's blue dress ripples and expands in and out as the cold air penetrates in and around the material. Rhoda's inquisitive mind is trying to find a link with the solar systems planets and moons as she would like to know how Earth Two became reality, There must be a powerful meaning for Earth Two to suddenly appear. Saturn was first visited by NASA'sPioneer 11 in 1979 and later by Voyager 1 and Voyager 2. Cassini (a joint NASA / ESA project) arrived on July 1, 2004. Launched in on Oct. 15, 1997, Cassini's mission to explore Saturn ended on Sept. 15, 2017 with a deliberate plunge into Saturn's atmosphere. The spacecraft collected and transmitted data until the very last seconds of the mission.
Total Mission Elapsed Time: 19 years, 11 months, 0 days, 3 Hours, 12 Minutes and 46 Seconds. Cassini plunged into Saturn's atmosphere and disintegrated about 3:31 a.m. PDT (7:31 a.m. EDT) on Sept. 15, 2017.

J66.jpg

Rhoda is looking at Earths moon and she is considering the fact that now Earths moon is being shared with Earth Two. The powerful gravitational forces that keep the planets and moon apart have not affected the tides in anyway. Science will now expand on this phenomena and lots of new and exciting things will be learnt about planets moons solar systems and the universe itself.

Back_side_of_the_Moon_AS16-3021.jpg

The Moon from the hidden side - Image taken by Apollo 16.

The Moon (or Luna) is the Earth’s only natural satellite and was formed 4.6 billion years ago around some 30–50 million years after the formation of the solar system. The Moon is in synchronous rotation with Earth meaning the same side is always facing the Earth. The first unmanned mission to the Moon was in 1959 by the Soviet Lunar Program with the first manned landing being Apollo 11 in 1969.

The dark side of the moon is a myth.
In reality both sides of the Moon see the same amount of sunlight however only one face of the Moon is ever seen from Earth. This is because the Moon rotates around on its own axis in exactly the same time it takes to orbit the Earth, meaning the same side is always facing the Earth. The side facing away from Earth has only been seen by the human eye from spacecraft.
The rise and fall of the tides on Earth is caused by the Moon.
There are two bulges in the Earth due to the gravitational pull that the Moon exerts; one on the side facing the Moon, and the other on the opposite side that faces away from the Moon, The bulges move around the oceans as the Earth rotates, causing high and low tides around the globe.
The Moon is drifting away from the Earth.
The Moon is moving approximately 3.8 cm away from our planet every year. It is estimated that it will continue to do so for around 50 billion years. By the time that happens, the Moon will be taking around 47 days to orbit the Earth instead of the current 27.3 days.
The Moon has no atmosphere.
This means that the surface of the Moon is unprotected from cosmic rays, meteorites and solar winds, and has huge temperature variations. The lack of atmosphere means no sound can be heard on the Moon, and the sky always appears black.

J67.jpg

Rhoda closes the box so that it becomes the shape of a square, Rhoda ponders over an image of Earth Two which is now the ninth planet in the solar system. There are 8 true planets not including Earth Two being, Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Earth, Mars, Neptune, Uranus, and Mercury. High pitched synthesizer sounds are heard infused with a somber middle toned violin.

J68.jpg

Suddenly Rhoda decides to leave the beach as her hair blows in all directions from the strong breeze.

J69.jpg

Rhoda stands up and walks away from the beach still in thought and contemplation.

J70.jpg

An hour or so has passed as Rhoda walks through a wooded area, Birds are chirping loudly including several squawking sounds. It is still relatively early in the day and Rhoda has decided to go and visit Mr Burroughs. 

J71.jpg

A piano can be heard in the distance as Rhoda approaches the old wooden house. Rhoda did not make plans to visit John she is going to make a surprise visit instead. Rhoda walks with pace towards the front door with a confident body language.

J72.jpg

The piano composition continues to play as Rhoda stands motionless from outside, Rhoda waits momentarily as she stares through the glass window contemplating (as Rhoda always does) on what she is going to say and the night ahead. Suddenly Rhoda begins to walk forward one step at a time towards the sound and her own reflection.

J73.jpg
J74.jpg

Rhoda reaches the door with something very important on her mind.

Sonatina In D Minor (Phaedon Papadopoulos)

John is playing his electronic piano in the music room, For once in his life his mental state has improved and he has started to do the things he did before the accident. Rhoda has certainly played a part in his improved state of mind.

J75.jpg

Rhoda stands motionless at the door as she listens to Johns music, She is cautious and in no rush to surprise him. 

J76.jpg

Rhoda slowly moves through the kitchen on her way to meet John, Rhoda feels the soft material of the sofa as she gracefully moves closer to the sound. 

J77.jpg

John is a fluent and accomplished piano player.

J78.jpg

Rhoda's darkened silhouette slowly appears from the kitchen doorway, She walks slowly towards John without making a sound.

J79.jpg

Rhoda is focused on the door entrance to where John is playing.

J80.jpg

Rhoda is quiet silent and calm, she shows little emotion as she edges her way closer to John.

J81.jpg

Rhoda stands motionless as she watches John play the piano, 

J82.jpg

John is focused and has not noticed Rhoda's presence.

J83.jpg

John is close to finishing the musical composition as his hands climb the scale to a crescendo of high notes.

J84.jpg

John finishes the song as he looks up and see's Rhoda standing there in silence, A big smile appears on John's face as he is very happy to see her. John say's, Hi.

J85.jpg

All is silent as Rhoda smiles and say's "Hi" John say's softly, A nice surprise.

J86.jpg

John say's, You're all dressed up as he beams with delight at the sight of Rhoda. 

J87.jpg

Rhoda say's, Do you remember that essay contest I told you about? 

J88.jpg

Rhoda continues, Travel to Earth Two? John replies, Uh-huh as he listens carefully to Rhoda's words.

J89.jpg

All is silent as Rhoda replies with happiness, I won.

J90.jpg

John is tongue tied as he hears the words, He continues to smile as he only wants the best for Rhoda, Rhoda say's ecstatically, I'm gonna go to space. John replies with encouragement as his face broadens into a wide smile of acceptance, "You won, That's great".

J91.jpg

Rhoda is full of happiness and big smiles as she looks at John.

J92.jpg

John say's with immense pride and satisfaction, That's fantastic, 

J93.jpg

John immediately stands from his stool as a massive impulsive urge fills John's mind. He say's with enthusiasm, We have to celebrate, Come here, come on we have to celebrate.

J94.jpg

Rhoda laughs ecstatically as John pulls Rhoda by her left hand through the next room towards the kitchen.

J95.jpg

John say's again, Come here, we have to celebrate. Rhoda continues to laugh with happiness.

J96.jpg

John leads Rhoda into the kitchen as he say's loudly, First things first...is to start with a drink. Rhoda lets out a huge high pitched laugh as now fun is mingled with her happiness. John pulls Rhoda over to a workbench behind the sink where he picks up a bottle of spirits. John say's, we have to celebrate as he places the bottle on the sink worktop.

J97.jpg

John say's to himself as he walks over at speed to a side cupboard, I can't believe... John turns to Rhoda after retrieving two glasses for the drink. He say's, How many people...

J98.jpg

The cupboard door slams loudly and a bang is heard as John continues, How many people wrote in? 

J99.jpg

John continues, That is... A sound of dripping water is heard as John pours the liquor into glasses.

J100.jpg

A clink of glass is heard as John returns the top to the bottle decanter. John say's with sincerity, I am so happy for you.

J101.jpg

John hands a glass to Rhoda as he takes a deep breath in preparation for his big speech, He say's to Rhoda as he raises his glass, To the coming true of your most improbable dream. Congratulations.

J102.jpg

Rhoda and John stare each other in the eyes as Rhoda raises her glass to celebrate her winning a ticket to Earth Two. A chinking is heard as John and Rhoda touch glasses in high spirits and for the occasion.

J103.jpg

A gurgling sound is heard as John quickly consumes his beverage, John raises his glass and gulps down the drink in just a few swallows, Rhoda sips her glass but does not finish the drink. Two thuds of wood are heard as the glasses are returned to the sink sideboard.

J104.jpg

Rhoda lets out a loud breath in happiness as John looks at Rhoda with more celebrational ideas on his mind.

J105.jpg

John raises both arms as he goes to embrace Rhoda around her face and neck, He say's, Next step is a feast. Rhoda splutters with laughter as John gives Rhoda a tender kiss on the lips.

J106.jpg

John say's, I'm gonna cook you a celebration feast. Rhoda replies "Yeah" as she smiles and laughs with delight. John say's Okay? as Rhoda replies with a huge smile "Okay". John gives Rhoda another kiss on the lips before breaking away to prepare the food.

J107.jpg

John say's, Okay, uh, John claps his hand's together to signal the next step of the celebration, Food, we need Food first he say's. Rhoda follows John as she giggles and beams with happiness.

J108.jpg

A couple of hours have passed as night has fallen and all is silent outside except for a light ambient breeze, A violin can be heard playing a simple melody infused with a simple piano chord as the camera pans right bringing the house into view.

K1.jpg

John's voice is suddenly heard, He say's, And...

K2.jpg

Do they know how prepared you are?

K3.jpg

I mean, with the Joan Tallis costume... for Halloween?, Rhoda replies, I will be fully trained in the Mojave desert. John replies, Oh, Well, that's comforting.

K4.jpg

John is preparing the celebration dinner as Rhoda replies with food in her mouth,  They made me sign this waiver. Basically every other line of it say's, "If you die, Rhoda points her finger at John to emphasize her words,  "it's your fault". Rhoda is amused at her words as she picks on some cheese from a plate on the table. 

K5.jpg

John laughs at Rhoda's acceptance to the rules, He replies humorously, And you seem- You seem totally Okay with that.

K6.jpg

John watches Rhoda sat at the table as she nibbles on some cheese. He is extremely happy for Rhoda and is feeling very happy himself.

K7.jpg

John say's from the kitchen sink, You know, you'll need an executor for your will.

K8.jpg

John suddenly brings two plates of food over for himself and Rhoda, John say's, Do you have one?

K9.jpg

Rhoda replies, No, but I don't have anything.

K10.jpg

John sits down as he replies, Okay, so nothing to no one. Sounds pretty easy, I think I could handle that.

K11.jpg

John continues, Um...Burial or cremation? as Rhoda moves her plate slightly with her right hand.

K12.jpg

John listens tentatively to Rhoda's reply.

K13.jpg

Rhoda replies, I think my body would probably burn up on reentry. Or be lost in space, so...

K14.jpg

John chuckles as he raises his glass and say's Okay, Ashes to Ashes...

K15.jpg

John and Rhoda clink glasses as John say's, "Dust to Dust".

K16.jpg

Rhoda smiles sweetly at John before taking a sip of the rich red wine from the glass. Rhoda holds the glass slightly away from her face as she evaluates the wines natural fruity notes. John taps on the table three times in fast succession and say's, We'll have to hold a memorial service.

K17.jpg

John sniffs as he looks down at the table, John looks back up at Rhoda and say's, Who would you like to attend?

K18.jpg

Rhoda ponders momentarily then nods her head negatively and say's, I don't know?.

K19.jpg

John raises his hand slightly to signal Rhoda's response, and then looks in silence as neither have anything to say at that moment.

K20.jpg

John watches Rhoda as she lifts her head to look at John and replies, You?, Both John and Rhoda look at each other then both look away staring at the table in complete silence.

K21.jpg

All is silent and there in no sound score, A few moments later John say's softly with sincerity, Don't go. A few seconds later John say's, Please don't go.... We're so close to something here.

K22.jpg

Rhoda just stares down in denial and deep thought as all is silent. Suddenly Rhoda starts to nod her head slightly in a negative way, She whispers with a sad and unforgiving tone , "We Can't" she say's.

K23.jpg

John replies, Why can't we? His eyebrows bunch as he looks over slightly complexed.

K24.jpg

Rhoda's mind is screaming tonight as the time has come for Rhoda to tell John the best way she can that she was responsible for the fatal accident that killed his pregnant wife and young son. She has been building up to this moment for a long time and this is going to be the moment. This relationship can go no further without Rhoda coming clean otherwise it will destroy them both. Rhoda envisions the night of the accident in vivid detail.

K25.jpg

Rhoda replies softly, You know that we can't, 

K26.jpg

John replies a little louder and more firmly, I know that we have. Rhoda's mind is still on the accident that fateful night. The images have burnt into her mind and haunt her on a daily basis.

K27.jpg

Rhoda looks away unable to find a clear solution to her problem.

K28.jpg

John 's feelings are getting the better of him and the situation, He say's with a begging expression, Stay, please?, Suddenly Rhoda stands up from her chair and leaves the table, A wooden rubbing sound is heard as Rhoda abruptly stands up not being able to look John in the face anymore. 

K29.jpg

A wooden rubbing sound is heard as Rhoda's chair slides slightly across the floor from her abrupt movement, Rhoda is facing away from John as more images of the accident begin to torment Rhoda. Rhoda's feet make a light sound as she takes a few steps away then stops motionless.

K30.jpg

Rhoda stares ahead in complete silence and confusion.

K31.jpg

John is silent as he watches Rhoda from a distance.

K32.jpg

Rhoda is thinking back to the night she was arrested and incarcerated at the local sheriff's department. Rhoda had hurt her left side temple and leg in the collision and was lucky to have not received worse injuries. 

K33.jpg

A low level synthesizer sound is heard in the background, Rhoda turns around and sits back down to face John. Rhoda stares at John without saying a word.

K34.jpg

John is motionless and he also just stares at Rhoda with a blank expression.

K35.jpg

Rhoda is in a devious frame of mind as she looks away from John and contemplates another image from the night she crashed her vehicle.

K36.jpg

Rhoda's mind takes her back to the time when she was in custody and was having her Photo taken for ID purposes. Rhoda had also hurt her lip from the collision.

K37.jpg

Rhoda was instructed by a police officer to turn face around so that another photograph could be taken of the teenage delinquent. Rhoda's height was also measured including finger prints and DNA. 

K38.jpg

Rhoda is still looking at the glassware shelf in a lost way when she suddenly turns around to face John,

K39.jpg

Rhoda say's, Let me tell you a story. The synth sound continues it is a continues spacey note with no fluctuation or change.

K40.jpg

Rhoda is thinking about West Haven High School and the real cleaning job she does, Rhoda has been deceiving John as we know but she feels awful for cheating him out of his family and now cheating him again with her own selfish actions. Her mind is some where else as she looks down at the floor in the chemical storage facility.

K41.jpg

Rhoda continues, And if, Rhoda swallows and nods positively as she struggles to get her words out, "after you still want me to stay," Rhoda pauses for a few short seconds then say's, I will stay.

K42.jpg

John is now transfixed onto Rhoda's words and facial expressions, His body language has changed from hearing the serious words from Rhoda, He looks down then back up at Rhoda as he nods slightly in agreement.

K43.jpg

Rhoda has been in deep thought and contemplation for quite some time, She has constantly thought about John and her conscience, This moment when Rhoda was walking through town is another notable time that she was contemplating a solution to her problem an action plan to initiate.

K44.jpg

Rhoda continues, It's about a girl.

K45.jpg

Rhoda thinks back before the accident and how different her life was before the fatal collision and Earth Two's arrival. Rhoda is posing in the mirror in this scene as her reflection emulates the second Rhoda the girl with two minds and actions.

K46.jpg

Rhoda continues as John listen tentatively, Rhoda say's, At the start, Rhoda nods negatively slightly to express some immaturity almost feeling sorry for her young self, she's...

K47.jpg

Naive, Her mind reverts back to the moment she left the party having celebrated her acceptance into MIT, She imagines herself getting into the motor vehicle but regrets the fate she was handed, If only she had never took the car or if only she had left earlier or later this terrible accident may never of happened. 

K48.jpg
K49.jpg
K50.jpg

Rhoda continues, Reckless.

John is hypnotized by Rhoda's words, He knows there is something building up inside Rhoda she is carefully telling John what she wanted to say but now it has turned into a very deep and meaningful expression of her mind. At the beginning she thought it would be so easy to tell John about the accident but this has proved to be impossible and now she has reached the point of no return and must finish telling John her story. A moment passes then Rhoda say's, She does something that is...

Rhoda drifts back to the moment she first set her eyes on Earth Two and the feeling it provided. The excitement and the bewilderment of the night all alone with a giant oddity that beams its light down to Earth's strangers without any warning of it's forthcoming.

K51.jpg

Rhoda say's, "Unforgivable" in a serious tone of voice.

K52.jpg

John is mesmerized as Rhoda continues, She say's, And one day,

K53.jpg

she goes to apologize

K54.jpg

Rhoda returns her thoughts to the first time she met John after spying on him at his house.

K55.jpg

Rhoda speaks with sadness denial and guilt as she remembers in every detail her visit to the old white house in the forest. Rhoda's thoughts took over as she took advantage over Mr Burroughs dilemma even though it was he who thought was taking advantage over Rhoda.

K56.jpg
K57.jpg
K58.jpg

Rhoda continues, But she loses her nerve, Tears are starting to dwell in Rhoda's eyes as she carefully explains herself the best way she can. A few seconds pass then Rhoda say's, She's weak, 

Rhoda thinks back to when she took her clothes off and laid naked and all alone in a field in freezing cold conditions. Rhoda is certainly suffering from a guilty conscience and each time she fails she takes the disappointment out on herself. She thinks she is a failure and nothing ever goes right for her so she tried to commit suicide as a means to escape and solve the problems she is experiencing. 

Rhoda continues, She lies to him.

K59.jpg

The camera lens zooms in slowly as John blinks rapidly as he tries to absorb the information and Rhoda's way of expressing herself. John's eyes look down in a kind of disbelief as he is still processing the information and he is now thinking about the situation he has had with Rhoda.

K60.jpg

Rhoda thinks about her job at West Haven High School and why she enrolled for the job in the first place. Working at the school gave Rhoda a cover for her pretend job at Maid in Haven and she feels guilty for deceiving John after all that they have been through.

K61.jpg

Rhoda continues and say's softly....And then... Rhoda nods her head slightly as she expresses her words, Rhoda say's, She thinks that she might in the smallest ways,... Rhoda has a whispering tone, "be able to make his life just a little bit better".

K62.jpg

Rhoda envisages John sitting in the garden reading a book as she slowly walks behind with some washing in hand. This scene indicates Rhoda is a kind of phantom entity that carries out cleaning chores for John as she feels sorry for his life.

K63.jpg

Rhoda continues as the tension is nearly at boiling point, Tears are quite visibly swelling in Rhoda's eyes as she say's in a whispering tone of voice, And so she wakes up every day just to do that.

K64.jpg

John is still silent as Rhoda continues, She say's, And some days she thinks it's for him, John looks down and doesn't know where to put himself as he is emotionally stunned at this point.

K65.jpg

Rhoda is close to tears as her powerful words continue, Other days, she worries that it's for herself, that it was really just a way to survive what I have done.

K66.jpg

John suddenly realizes what Rhoda is trying to explain to him, He looks at Rhoda with an inbuilt shock as the words start to bite. Everything that has happened is suddenly making sense and John is starting to piece together the complicated puzzle box for himself.

K67.jpg

Rhoda has genuinely strong feelings for John and she never intended to ignite a relationship that would end in tears. Rhoda continues as her emotions increase with every second, She say's from the heart, But I think that I do make you happy.

K68.jpg

The conversation is proving to be too great for John, He turns his head away and stands up in complete shock from Rhoda's words. Another piece of the puzzle has just slotted in to place and John does not know anymore if he even knows this woman called Rhoda. John curses himself from under his breath by saying, Oh My God as he stands and walks away.

K69.jpg

Rhoda continues, I know that you make me happy.

K70.jpg

John is in a trance like state as he walks around the kitchen table to sit down onto another chair. The chair makes a snapping sound as Johns weight is placed onto it.

K71.jpg

John is in a bad way he feels delusional and confused, Rhoda is trying her best to make the most of a bad situation. John is contemplating the accident and is piecing together everything that has happened.

K72.jpg

Rhoda is silent and tearful as she stares at John, 

K73.jpg

John is thinking back to the night of the accident, The images and events he remembers have been blotted out by the impact of Rhoda's vehicle. His pregnant wife and child were so viciously snatched away from him those last moments are so precious. John now knows that Rhoda was responsible for the accident and is a mixed bag of fireworks at this moment in time.

K74.jpg

Now John's mind is playing a movie as he thinks back to happier times. Nothing can bring back his family and Rhoda knows she can only push her luck so far with John.

K75.jpg

John is dumbfounded, John is destroyed, John feels trapped.

K76.jpg

Rhoda comes clean and admits her role in the accident, She say's, It was my fault.

K77.jpg

Now Johns mind is focused on his five year old son Amos who tragically perished from the impact, He really loved and misses his son like all good fathers would but now a blade has come between John and Rhoda. He put trust and faith into this person and now he feels betrayed. A low level clicking sound can be heard mixed with the trance synth sound, It can be described as a ticking clock sound.

K78.jpg

A pin could be heard if dropped at this point, John stares at Rhoda hesitating knowing that she is about to say something extremely hurtful but at the same time extremely brave and honest.

K79.jpg

Rhoda spills the beans and say's with a soft whispering tone, I killed your wife and your son.

K80.jpg

John has has enough but is taking the situation very well at this point of the night. He say's in a normal tone but not angry, "You better leave".

K81.jpg

Rhoda has tears to her eyes and is feeling awful for what she has just told John, But she had an insatiable desire to tell John and if she never told him tonight it would of been the next time or next but with each day that passed she carried her guilt and the worse she felt and her mind could not hide her  anguish any longer. Rhoda closes her eyes in sorrow and deep sadness.

K82.jpg

John is starting to feel very stressed as he makes his wishes much more understandable, He stares at the floor as he shouts, "Get Out"

K83.jpg

More time passes in silence but Rhoda is still sat down from across the room. John can take no more and shouts at the top of his voice for Rhoda to leave, He shouts "Get Out Now!"

K84.jpg

Rhoda sits there motionless as she jumps in fright slightly from Johns loud verbal command, Rhoda opens her eyes and just stares at John without any emotion of any kind. Rhoda was not sure what the reaction would be once she told John about her guilt but now all is plain to see. John shouts once more, Now! and this time Rhoda instantly leaves her chair and makes her way to the exit through a darkened door well.

K85.jpg

A distorted and intermittent high pitched whirring sound is infused with a middle toned synth key that plays a continuous note. John is extremely affected by Rhoda's shock treatment. His body signals indicate he is moments away from a convulsion but he raises his left hand to his forehead while taking deep breaths of air.

K86.jpg

John feels his chest area with his right hand as his heart beats rapidly from the stress and mental torture he has endured. 

K87.jpg

Rhoda is returning on the train in deep thought.

K88.jpg

(A simple synth key can be heard playing a continuous note) A television channel is broadcasting a report on Rhoda's success at winning the United Space Ventures competition which so many people entered. A female reporters voice is heard saying, The mystery flight member is 21 year old Rhoda Williams who is rumored to be an ex-convict. Her records are off limit to the public as the alleged crime occurred when she was under age. 

K89.jpg

Kim and Robert are watching the television as the TV reporter continues, There are reports of offers up to three million dollars on the web for a ticket aboard USV's flight. We're getting word now that she's arriving at her residence in New Haven.

K90.jpg

Kim raises her arms and signals to Robert that Rhoda has arrived back home and is moments away from coming in the front door. She turns and points her right hand at the door to signal for Robert to go and let her in. Kim say's with urgency and a face of concern, "Oh, Oh, Can you get that... The TV reporter continues, where Robert Hughes is standing by. 

K91.jpg

Rhoda has just arrived back home from leaving the train station, A large crowd of news agency reporters have turned up and are directly outside Rhoda's house and have also circled around the back of the house. Rhoda holds her right hand up high to try and shield herself from the blinding flashes of cameras, It is very noisy as all the reporters are trying to ask questions all at the same time. Some say "Right Here" to try and catch her attention.

K92.jpg

Another reporter shouts "Can I take your picture for the space trip", another reporter shouts, Rhoda are you going into space. Another shouts "Have you got the ticket?" Many are shouting Rhoda while another shouts out "Rhoda Williams" and creating a lot of noise and commotion.

K93.jpg

Rhoda has been taken by surprise as she never expected a large crowd of reporters to have accumulated outside her house. Rhoda is naturally introverted and shy so she is not appreciating the reporters at this moment in time.

K94.jpg

Rhoda fights her way through the crowd to be greeted by her father Robert. Robert helps her in to the house as another reporter shouts out "Just one photo"

K95.jpg

The reporters are desperate for photos and answers, They shout as they flash wildly with there cameras, they won't be going home anytime soon.

K96.jpg

Rhoda enters her house and immediately walks to the stairs so that she can get some peace and quiet from the attic bedroom, Robert shouts over to his daughter with a tone of concern, The television can be heard in the background.

K97.jpg

Rhoda turns around as Robert walks on over to speak to Rhoda, Robert say's, You could have told us? We had to find out from the media? Rhoda replies, I ju.. I just found out.

K98.jpg

Kim and Robert are very concerned for there daughter and only want what's best for her, Both parents listen carefully as Rhoda say's, I wasn't sure I wanted to go, I didn't...Rhoda stops her sentence. Kim replies with uncertainty, Are you going?

K99.jpg
K100.jpg

Rhoda replies, I'm gonna go. A reporter on the scene is broadcasting live from outside Rhoda's house and can be heard on the Williams television set, The reporter say's, The space flight will cost Trillions...We were unable to get a comment from Rhoda Williams or her family members. They are keeping a low profile and were keep you updated.

Kim replies with slight shock and distress, She say's, Oh no no Wait a minute. I mean, don't you think we- we should have a discussion about this? Robert breathes out deeply from the stressful situation.

K101.jpg

Rhoda has made up her mind and is silent and motionless as she stands on the stair case.

K102.jpg

A tap tap tap sound is heard at the back window from a keen reporter, Kim responds by saying, Oh, they're in the backyard now. Flashes of light from the reporters cameras pierce through the glass window to create a flickering light show.

K103.jpg

Robert goes to investigate the tapping sound as more flashes of light illuminate the window producing a pleasant "Air Force Blue" color scheme that reveals the contours and shapes of shrubbery and leaves. Kim follows Robert and attempts to signal him with her right hand for him to ignore the reporters as it will make the situation worse.

K104.jpg

Rhoda suddenly makes her way up the twisting stairs as Kim turns and shouts up to her loudly, Rhoda, Rhoda she shouts in an attempt to bring her back as she and Robert have not finished there important discussion with her. Rhoda defies her mother and continues up to the attic bedroom (Her only place of solitude in the entire house)

K105.jpg

Fast tapping of a wooden block can be heard that has a slightly echoed effect overlayed, A simple piano chord can also be heard infused with a low level synth key. Rhoda has laid down on her bed and is looking at an envelope that she has received in the post.

K106.jpg

Rhoda slowly pulls the winning ticket for the Earth Two flight from it's protective outer cardboard box.

K107.jpg

The illustrious and highly desirable ticket has now been revealed to Rhoda. The ticket displays a small amount of information in regards to travelling to Earth Two, UNITED SPACE VENTURES - TRAVEL TO EARTH II  - Operator (USV) Ticket No 0001 - Departure - 05 July 2012 -  - Time 0645 -(Compartment) BUS N - (Seat) 3B - (Astronaut) Group A - Arrival 0715 - Valid only for dates listed. - TRANSFERABLE - ADMIT ONE (1) - -

K108.jpg

Rhoda ponders over the impossible dream, the text sits nicely printed onto the thin papers surface not entirely expressing it's power and excitement. Rhoda contemplates what the trip will be like and who she will meet on her journey.

K109.jpg

Rhoda reads the information on the ticket then quickly slides it back into it's sleeve. A whooshing sound is heard as Rhoda pushes the ticket back into it's protective envelope. Rhoda stares at the dimly lit ceiling as she imagines her amazing trip into outer space.

K110.jpg

Rhoda rests the ticket onto her stomach as she investigates a thin booklet that contains her liability agreement amongst other important information relevant to her trip. She pulls the booklet from within another protective envelope as she begins to read the information.

K111.jpg

Rhoda flips one piece of paper down the middle to reveal a Release And Waiver Of Liability Agreement.

Rhoda ponders her journey but also she worries about her family who she will greatly miss, 

K114.jpg

A dripping sound of water can be heard including a simple piano key, Rhoda relaxes as she thinks about her exciting adventure.

K115.jpg

Downstairs in the front room the television is still switched on, A male voice can be heard coming from the speakers, he say's, Joining me now from Washington, D.C. Astrophysicist Dr. Richard Berendzen,
