AUTHOR’S HOUSE - EXTERIOR
[ELLIE knocks at the door. There is a pause, then AUTHOR opens it.]
Oh , Ellie. I’m so sorry for what happened, please forgive me.
It’s ok- no time for chat...can I come in?
Oh- er...sure, just wait a second.
[AUTHOR goes into house and puts a piece of paper underneath her pile of books]
Ok, it’s good. Come in.
