Scene II: We open on Jane Sullivan in an old kitchen cooking scrabbled eggs. Jane is murmuring about when they are going to come and hook up electricity in the house. Junior and Mary are sitting at the table talking about the horses and their father. The room is quieted when Mike enters.

Mike: [Glares at Jane and sits down.] So. What's for breakfast dear?

Jane: [Looks a bit confused but responds] Why we're having the traditional breakfast, eggs, toast and bacon. Would you like yours scrambled?

Mike: [Smiles at Jane and replies] Yes, yes I would, but could you put some of your delicious sausage in there for me honey? [No response from Jane] Please?

Jane: [Turns with a plate of steaming scrambled eggs in her hands and throws them to the ground, plate and all.] Mike! Are you just not going to talk about it! It's been a week; we are all worried to death about you! You could have been killed.

Mike: [Interrupts Jane by slamming his fist upon the table.] Jane, if I down want to talk about it we won't talk about it!

Jane: Mike how can you ignore what happened? Star the calmest horse in the world tried to kill you! Then the next day he was found floating in the pond! Mike please tell us what happened! [Tears stream down Jane's face]

Mike: Children would you mind leaving mummy and I alone for a little while? Hmm? [Junior and Mary nod as they get up and exit the room]

Mike: Jane, the horse got out is all. I don't understand what all the fuss is about. Mary and I went to the old Henderson barn and found Star there. He had hurt his eyes some how and I spooked him. He knocked me down when I tried to grab him.

Jane: [Jane's eyes widen at the mentioning of the barn and she breaks into a sweat] Mike I thought we agreed we never would allow the children over to the Henderson's property, especially that barn? Grace Henderson was terrified of that barn Mike, that's why they left, she said it was haunted. Little Anne kept going in there in the middle of the night.

Mike: [Clears his throat] Jane don't be so superstitious! You know the Henderson's left because they had to be closer to the city, Anne's heart problem, remember?

Jane: [Walks to the window and looks out into the morning fog] Do you remember when we moved here? The Henderson's were a picture perfect family until last summer when they cut down those trees and found they barn. Not long after that Anne developed her condition, and now they're gone.
