She was sitting at the garden. The grass was still. A smell of summer in the air. A boy and  a girl were playing hide and seek around a white marblestone crafted fountain. The girl was wearing a pink T shirt matching her sneakers. The boy was all dressed in navy blue. The girl seemed upset because she had fell down. The boy was staring at her with clueless eyes and half- open lips. She could hear their muffled voices and the soft sound of the water against the marblestone. 

She was bored with the ordinariness of life in the countryside. She would like to be on the beach. She closed her eyes and framed this moment. The sand was still. A smell of summer  in the air.  There was a boy and a girl playing hide and seek around a sand castle. The girl was upset because she had fell down. She could hear their muffled voices and the soft sound of the waves against the shore. 

She opened her eyes, lit a cigarette. She was smiling now, listening to the soft sound of the water against the marblestone,  watching a boy and a girl play hide and seek and a black and yellow butterfly flutter around them.
