As the night settles in, Saffron sits by her bonfire, she is alone once again, but the fire burns brightly around her, protecting Saffron from the night's sky. Gazing into the flicker of the flames Saffron's thoughts are honest and deep.
Scene 7. Ext. Campfire. Night
Standing in front of the fire, Saffron holds out all of the letters she has been given and smiles. These people did not write these letters for one particular individual to read. These letters are stories to be told, to be shared, shaken and set free. They are memories and memories that can never be taken away, memories that will never lose a love or wish or a hope, they will grow, whispering with the wind and finding comfort in one and all.
The characters within this story, have not given these letters to Saffron so she could read them herself. They have been given to her so the stories can be set free. Taken to a place where they can never go, a place of trust, not sorrow or woe. With the greatest sense of release and joy, Saffron drops the letters into the fire and begins to dance. As the letters are welcomed by the warmth of the ashes, the fire crackles with joy and laughter. Saffron dances wildly as the ashes rise high above her, she dances for us, for everyone she loves, loved and will ever love. All of the characters Saffron has met within this story are now solely within her heart and dancing happily and freely around her.
Scene 8. Ext. Campfire. Morning
As dawn arrives, all of the characters on this quest wake up together around the campfire. The ground is cold and dry, but their hearts are warm and free. Mothers, Clowns, Soldiers, and Brothers, are all there, together, not lost and alone, but safe and found.
Scene 9. Ext Campfire Morning
Everyone in the camp smiles and enjoys a full, hearty breakfast. Saffron however sits alone, she looks down to her ever dissolving wings, people hug and laugh around her. The wings are now folded smaller and collapsed, looking at them, Saffron knows realises that her journey is not over; she is not home, not yet.
