Carry On — Page 6



*Lucy recalls an earlier conversation with Mike.*
Mike: You’ll get used to it one day, right?
Lucy: Do I need to? It’s not like a pool is just gonna sneak up behind me!

*Back in the present, Lucy walks through the woods, carrying her backpack.*

*While walking, she continues to remember her conversation with Mike.*
Mike: You don’t want to try?
Lucy: No..

*Lucy frowns.*
Mike: If you tried.. you could be strong enough to handle anything.. It’s nothing to be scared of.

*Lucy looks at something.*

*She stands by the river and gulps.*

*She takes a few steps toward the river.*
Mike: If the water’s still.. You just have to trust it’ll be okay. You’ll be okay.

*Lucy sighs, starting to sweat.*

*Lucy trembles.*
Lucy (thinking): Just another step closer..

*Lucy starts to drift off, drooping forward. She then jolts awake, looking frightened.*

*Lucy sighs.*
Lucy: Dammit.

*She glances back at the water, disappointed, and walks away.*

*Lucy furrows her brow in annoyance.*
Lucy: What’s the point, seriously..

*Augustus watches Lucy from behind a tree.*
Lucy (thinking): I don’t need his promises. I can handle it. By avoiding it.

*Augustus smiles deviously.*

Author commentary

Oliver: Self-reliance! That’s the way to do it, Lucy.

I thought we’d be seeing the turtle again. Guess not.
