Jump, Again

He looks like Will from The Inbetweeners

His friend doesn't seem to have a face at all

They are on holiday, somewhere warm

They aren't talking much

Not arguing or anything

but there is something not being said

They don't seem to be having much fun

They are mostly just lazing about in the sun


Jump to their hotel

then immediately to a large Georgian House

They are with a family - a couple and two young children

The house is in a street with other Georgian houses

No two houses are the same

but they are all in a minor state of disrepair

with pieces of rendering missing

revealing brickwork underneath


Jump to the approach road to Heathrow Airport

They are hurrying, walking with suitcases

Jump back to the house

He is saying goodbye to his friend and to the family

They are all walking away carrying luggage

whilst he sits in a large upstairs window

with no glass or curtains

watching them go

Excellent. I shivered when I got to the end. Really effective combination of what is and is not said,
