Scratching the dust, breathing steadily, in the back of the cave before time began we grew into the future and fought through the chaos we found there, sometimes with the upper hand, sometimes not, always wishing we were still safe in the back of the cave scratching in the dust.

The small-talk rises above the clatter of silver cutlery on fine plates and drifts across, through the open window, to the trees, where leaves rustle and twigs crack. A girl comes down from the trees - a wild, child she lives a simple life of actions & reactions, full of joy & wonder. La Contessa is from the Big House, where she lives a formal life of elegance & predictability, governed by rules & etiquette. When they meet communication & understanding are put to the test.
