Two teenagers finish the last apple in the house and then wait for something to say.

"I'm thirsty now," one says.

The other unseals a new milk carton from the fridge.

They both drink from it, holding each other, turning their heads to face the flash.

They have a certain way of standing--like the feeling of having a toy but never playing with it.
