Backyard of a villa on the outskirts. On stage ANA, FRAN and a boy about ten years old. It’s noon.
Ana. (Looks at the boy ) Look at him! Yesterday he was a cowboy and today he was an astronaut.
Fran. Tomorrow he will be a sailor, for sure!
Ana. I love seeing David happy! I hope you never stop playing.
Fran. It will one day; but for now he has many toys left in this yard.
Same backyard. Twelve years have passed. On scene ANA and FRAN sitting on a wooden bench, much older and tired. It’s getting late.
Ana. (Voice broken) I miss David. Since he grew up, he hasn’t seen us again.
Fran. Honey, he’s an adult now. You have responsibilities.
Ana. I should go back and play again, even if it was for a day.
Fran. It’s complicated. Adults have little time for such things.
Ana. I know, but before I believed in the impossible.
Fran. Certain!; David should visit the backyard more often.
