boots: chloe meets tom final

tom is asleep in the recliner in the tv room, boots off, almost stuck together where they stand near the chair.

rodeo is on tv. a girl runs her horse 'round and 'round the barrels, volume muted.

carson stands in the doorway, a bag of groceries under each arm.

chloe holds one bag, positioned halfway between carson and tom, whom she stares at.

she is startled when he snores and hurries back to carson, who smiles.

chloe moves past him and into the hall, out of view.

carson lingers a moment, staring at tom, then walking out of view.

tom snores again.
