Newt and Catharine had grown up next door to each other on the fringe of a city near fields, woods and orchards. There had always been playful, comfortable warmth between them, but never any talk of love. When they grew up Newt left Catharine to become a soldier. Catharine, now in her twenties, was about to marry Henry Stewart Chasens. Upon learning about this from his mother, Newt realizes that he still loves Catharine. He goes AWOL from the army and hitchhikes home to see Catharine. Meanwhile, Catharine, secure in her love for Henry, makes final preparations for the marriage——and anxiously awaits the sensible and comfortable life to follow. When Newt arrives back home, he goes to her house and knocks on the door. He says to Catharine, “Let’s go for a walk.” Catherine was surprised to see him for she thought he had long disappeared in her life. “A walk?” she asks. Newt explains – “one foot in front of the other, through leaves, and over bridges.” Eventually he convinces Catharine to take a walk in the nearby woods, as they used to do when children. Deep in these woods Newt and Catharine must resolve whether this is a short walk for old-times’ sake, or a long walk to forever.”
