INT. WEDDING FEAST - NIGHT

Laban stands before furious Jacob who stands between flower-decked Leah and Rachel.

LABAN
I pronounce you man and ... WIVES!

Laban's thugs erupt in laughter.

LABAN
And as a wedding gift, in accordance with the code of Hammurabi, I give Bilhah (my slave-girl) to be Rachel's maid.

Timid Bilhah blushes as the thugs cheer.

LABAN
Just in case Jacob outlasts you both!

Jacob glares at Laban, runs from the tent holding Rachel's hand.

Leah chases after them...

jacob & Rachel look back to see Leah chasing them:

LEAH
I can help!

JACOB
(to Rachel)
Run!

LEAH
(yells after them)
I know what he likes!

Leah huffs, out of breath, tearing-up, watching Rachel & Jacob disappear into the forest...
