VP: What the?
He glances down to see a butterfly knife sticking out of his chest.Sighing, he falls down dead, mouth open in disbelief.
GARO (smiles): Dumbass. When I make up my mind to kill you, there’snothing left for you to do but die.
He reaches down to get his sword when suddenly Violent Rhaspody’s dead hand shoots out and grabs him, he stares at it in horror as Rhaspody’seyes suddenly open! He struggles as a thundering drumming starts in hisears, louder and louder!BEEP
INT. The Dorm Room- MORNING
The alarm clock blinks 7:00, a hand shoots out from off the screen and slams on the snooze button, a heavy sigh comes fromover at the bed. The camera lifts up reveal Garo, with sleepy eyesstarring blankly up at the ceiling, rubbing hisforehead with one hand as if to shake off another night of inadequate rest.
GARO (VO): Name’s Garo, college student.
Garo gets up and sits on the bed, looking down at thebottom of his bed. A camera cut reveals that atattered hooded sweater lying on the ground, on top of which is a wooden bokken, worn-out and blood-stained.
GARO (VO): That is, college student by day. At nightit’s a different story.
He gets up and begins a Taijutsu form to wake himself up
GARO (VO): Even in my dreams I can’t escape them. A ninja never reallyrests. It’s been two years since my fight with Rhapsody during myfreshmen year. you know work is getting to you if someone you killedstarts appearing in your sleep.
He pauses, thinking back to his dream.
GARO (VO): Sigh, I can’t complain, everybody’s got their problems, minejust involve around scaling rooftops and clandestine assassinations. Iguess I’m just a little tired of this ninja life, afterall- I’ve beendoing this ever since grade school…
Garo finishes his form. We follow Garo into thekitchen, where he opens a box of cereal and gets amilk carton to prepare breakfast. Sunlight pour infrom the window. He sits down to eat looking sleepy still. The camera zooms out
