Our protagonist unties a blue apron from around her waist with her back turned to the viewer. She steps away from a few potted plants and calls out, “Tulsi! I’m gonna take lunch!”

The inside of her locker. An orange dinosaur lunchbox is nestled against her apron, hung on a hook. There’s a picture of her posing with two other people hanging on the inside of the door- you can’t quite make it out, but it looks like a family photo. Tulsi calls back, “Alright, Vi- holler when you get back!’

A wooden shelf against a blank background. Five small potted plants are lined in a row across it. They’re pleasant shades of green, pink and yellow.

Outside Eden’s Nursery, it’s a partly cloudy day with a calming blue sky. The nursery is small and wooden with domed skylights. Potted plants and trees line the perimeter of the building. In the distant background, you can see power lines stretching over a hill-y horizon. You get the idea that this is in a small town. Vi makes her way to a picnic table out front in a sitting area, shaded by a large tree. She’s medium-skinned, with bushy brown and black hair and droopy eyelids. She’s wearing a mauve button-down shirt, denim shorts, and black high-top sneakers with white and green laces.

As she sits, she hears a voice greet her from above her head. “Hello, Ambassador Violet.” She looks up, and seeing her closer, you can see she wears small drop earrings and a Star of David pendant around her neck.
