  1. MARTHA: Like that time when was it, last summer.
    EVA: No, in the winter time and in the autumn. It's so nice, it smells so clean.
    Okay, the fall then.
  2. EVA: Yes. And it's heavy, heavy frost and it covers everything and that's rime.
    And it's just frost? Is it a hoarfrost?
  3. EVA: That's it, hoarfrost is rime. And it covers everything. Every little blade of grass and every tree and houses and everything. Like it's been dipped in water and then in sugar.
    Or salt. Yeah, I know what it is.
  4. EVA: It's better than ice storms or anything like that. And everything is white and sparkling so clean when the sun comes up it nearly blinds you and it's rare! It doesn't happen every year. And that's what I'd like to be. What I'd like to do. I have a book with a picture of Jack Frost painting rime on a window pane with a paint brush. Do you fly? Do you dream you fly?
    When?
  5. EVA: Ever?
    I guess. I haven't thought about it.
  6. EVA: How high? Think about it. It's important. Everybody flies, it's important how high.
    I don't know. Just over the ground.
  7. EVA: Really?
    I guess. As high as my head. I'm always getting tangled up in wires and all.
  8. EVA: I'm way over the tree tops, just over the tree tops, just brushing against the tree tops, and I fly right over them, just brush them with my arms out. Over the whole town like an airplane. Spreading this salt frost in the autumn. I love autumn. And when the sun comes--
    Right.
  9. EVA: It'll blind you!
    I've seen it.
  10. MARY: I have a bruise there on the inside of my elbow, she holds on to me there, she pushes at me terrible, she can't help it.

    EVA: If you had a car you could drive all over.
    What do I want with a car?
  11. EVA: Are you afraid?
    What for, so I can drive around the square. Around the square, around the square. It's all they ever do; all the boys with cars. Around the square and over into Middleton to a drive-in to eat and a drive-in to see a movie.
  12. EVA: You don't want to be like--
    Everybody doesn't have to have a car. Everybody talks like that's all there is. The guys at school spend their whole lives in or on top of or under their cars. They eat in them and sleep in them and change clothes and drink and get sick and vomit and make out with their girls--it's all they even ever talk about. Evolution's gonna take their feet right away from them. Make turtles with wheels for legs out of them.
  13. EVA: I think you're just afraid 'cause of Driver.
    Well, that's another thing I hadn't thought of. They die in them too. Live and die without ever stepping outside. Why would I want that?
  14. TRUCKER: We'll have to take 'er out Sunday

    EVA: And it covers everything and that's rime.
    And it's just frost? Is it a hoarfrost?
  15. EVA: That's it, hoarfrost is rime. And it covers everything. Every little blade of grass and every tree and houses and everything. Like it's been dipped in water and then in sugar.
    Or salt. I've seen it.
  16. EVA: It's better than ice storms or anything like that. And everything is white and sparkling so clean when the sun comes up it nearly blinds you and it's rare! It doesn't happen every year. And that's what I'd like to be. What I'd like to do. I have a book with a picture of Jack Frost painting rime on a window pane with a paint brush. Do you fly? Do you dream you fly?
    When?
  17. EVA: Ever?
    I guess. I haven't thought about it.
  18. EVA: How high? Think about it. It's important. Everybody flies, it's important how high.
    I don't know. Just over the ground.
  19. EVA: Really?
    I guess. As high as my head. I'm always getting tangled up in wires and all.
  20. EVA: I'm way over the tree tops, just over the tree tops, just brushing against the tree tops, and I fly right over them, just brush them with my arms out. Over the whole town like an airplane. Spreading this salt frost in the autumn. I love autumn. And when the sun comes--
    Right.
  21. EVA: It blinds you!
    I've seen it.
  22. EVA: It's so bright it blinds you. I want to fly like that, all over the town, right over everybody. It's beautiful. Listen. Did you hear something?
    No. What?
  23. EVA: Like something rustling in the leaves?
    No. What? It was probably a rabbit.
  24. EVA: Listen.
    I don't hear anything.
  25. EVA: Maybe it was the wind.
    There isn't any; maybe it was a fox.
  26. EVA: Don't.
    Or a wolf.
  27. EVA: Ted Caffey trapped a wolf in his barn last year.
    Shot it's head off too.
  28. EVA: Oh, he did not, are you trying to scare me; it got away.
    Shot it and killed it; took its pelt in to the county agent in Middleton and got twenty dollars for it.
  29. EVA: It wasn't anything; we better get back.
    It was probably the mate looking for the one Caffey shot.
  30. Don't say that, it wasn't-- Listen!
    It wasn't anything.
  31. MARY: Gone, gone gone.

    EVA: You know what my mother says?
    What?
  32. EVA: When I come in?
    What?
  33. EVA: She says you're unresponsible, and she asks me things like where we go and all, everywhere we go every time I go anywhere with you. Everything we do.
    Where does she think we go?
  34. EVA: Oh, I tell her we just go walking in the woods; talking. She knows that but she thinks we do other things too.
    Like what?
  35. EVA: You know.
    Like what?
  36. EVA: You know. Dirty things.
    What does she think that for?
  37. I don't tell her, though.
    What would you tell her?
  38. EVA: About that. About when I have to pee and things.
    Well, there's nothing dirty about that.
  39. EVA: Well don't you think I know? I know. You don't do things like that, you don't even look! I can though; I know.
    You don't know anything.
  40. EVA: I DO TOO! I've seen. You think I'm so young because I'm so little. I'm fourteen; I can have babies already; and I've seen cows do it when they're in heat. But you wouldn't do something like that.
    Let's go back.
  41. EVA: Let's do. I know how; I can.
    When cows are in that's one cow jumping on another; you don't know anything.
  42. EVA: You're ashamed; you're not old enough to.
    You don't know what you're talking about.
  43. EVA: Boys have to be older. But I'll bet your brother could anyway. I might as well because she thinks we do anyway. You're the one who doesn't know anything about it.
    I should just to show you---don't---you don't know what you're talking about.
  44. EVA: What?
    Anything. Because you don't know anything about it.
  45. EVA: I do too. You're afraid.
    You don't know what you're talking about even.
  46. EVA: Only not here.
    Why not? What's wrong with here?
  47. EVA: You have to be in bed, stupid!
    If you think you know so much.
  48. EVA: Let go of me! You leave me alone. I will if I want to.
    You want to so bad! You think I can't.
  49. EVA: Stop it.
    You think I won't do it.
  50. EVA: Leave me alone. I'll tell.
    No you won't; you asked for it.
  51. MARY: You better go out and see, honey.
    No you won't tell; you asked for it.
  52. EVA: Leave me alone.
    You think you're so smart; I'll show you. Shut up now, shut up or I'll kill you anyway; you asked for it. You think I won't, I'll show you. Stop it.
  53. JUDGE: State your name.
    Robert Conklin.
  54. JUDGE Do you swear to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help you God?
    I do.
  55. JUDGE: There's nothing to be nervous about, Robert. We want you to tell the court, just in your own words, what happened on the night in question. Can you do that?
    Yes, I think.
  56. JUDGE: We know this has been a terrible shock to you---
    ---I'm okay, I think. See---Eva and I were walking. We do quite frequently. just wandering through the woods, talking. And we noticed that it had begun to get dark so we thought we had better start back---and we were heading back towards the main street, that would be West. And Eva thought she heard something behind us and we listened but we didn't hear it again so I assumed we were hearing things. Or it was our imagination. And it got dark pretty fast. And we were just coming into the clearing right behind the mill. Windrod's mill. And uh, we heard something again and this time we saw something behind the trees and we started running. More as a joke than anything---and then he started running too. And it was Skelly, and I wasn't afraid of him, but I knew he'd never liked my brother, and he started running too. He must have been following us all the time; everybody knows how he spies on people; I guess just as we broke into the clearing---and he came from nowhere. And he took us by surprise and he pushed me---he hit me from behind; I don't know if I passed out or not. He's immensely strong. And I heard a ringing in my ears and I saw what he was trying to do, and everything went white. And he pushed me.
