And Everything Will Be As It Was Synopsis:
Bess and her lover sit together at Anderson Station waiting for the next train to Boston, which arrives in 10 minutes. The tension is thick. Bess’ lover attempts to engage in conversation. Clearly distraught Bess’ responses only lead to small talk at best. She wants to say more, but the gravity of the situation, and English not being her first language contains her emotions to a few short phrases. Bess’ lover credits her awkwardness to immaturity. After all Bess is only 21, and he is 10 years her senor. “The next inbound train to Boston will be arriving in 5 minutes,” blares over the loud speaker. Bess’ lover ditches the kid gloves stating, “the procedure is simple and in their best interest,” In that moment the innocent immature Bess is gone forever.
