The room is dark and gloomy. Our character was lying on the bed, asleep.
The only source of light in the room was from a table lamp, which rested on top of the table. A clock on the table indicated 5:59 am, and then in a blink it struck 6:00am. The room was filled with the sound of the alarm going off on the clock; our character wakes up and shut the alarm, still lying in bed. His phone rings and the sound of his ringtone fills the room. The character wakes up from his bed and looks at his phone, flashing a private number. Character: Hello A heavy voice answers at the other end Voice on Phone: Good Morning, Isn’t it a lovely day outside? Character: What’s so lovely about it? VOP: Ah! My friend it is a lovely day, and indeed a day to do some work worthy of your talent. The Character is now wide awake, at hearing the man say his talent, a expression of disappointment and coldness arises on his face, definitely not happy to hear that he would have to use his talents again, to do some work. A work which will not let him sleep peacefully for many nights to come. Voice on Phone(VOP): Meet my man on the 5th avenue street bus stop at 8:00am, he’ll explain you, or rather hand you the package, after that you know what you have to do. OK then we shall talk again. Soon. Comes the sound of the cut tone and our Character still has phone on his ears, having the same expressions on his face. He puts down his phone and then wakes up from his bed. Thinking as he looks up the ceiling and then walks towards his bathroom. Next Scene Character is standing in the bathroom, looking at the mirror, which is completely foggy due to the steam in the bathroom, created by the hot water. VO: I don’t know how this happened, how I became someone, who I never thought off. Do you believe in destiny, well I didn’t until one day when everything changed, it just changed and I became what i am, standing here and just thinking, who will be the next victim to my talent, my talent to kill….
Character wipes the foggy mirror and looks at himself trying to find something thing in his face, maybe his old self, but he doesn’t find anything. Failed his washes his face and then walks out to dress.
Next Scene Character is now dressed up and ready to leave, he opens up his drawer to take out his gun, his hand reaches for the gun, but his eye catches the photo, which is there in his drawer. His hand now instead of the gun, picks up the photo. He eyes scanning the photo to recall some lost thoughts. The photo is his and with him is a girl, a girl who is happy, smiling and looking cheerful. And so is our character. His mind races to recall the memory he had forgotten, when this was, Flash Back “Come here you are not getting away from me this time” Girl: Really? Who’s going to stop me? You? Come on you couldn’t catch a fly” Boy: Oh.. just you wait, let me get my hands on you The boy leaps for the girl and catches her , the girl screaming and kicking. They fall to the ground, with the girl on top, and then they began laughing. Comes the sound of a click and then we are brought back to the photo, in our character’s hand. He is awaken from his dream as the clock stuck 7:00, and again the sound of alarm fills the room, he looks at his clock and then looks back again at the photo, then he keeps it back picks up his gun, and fits it in his jeans. He closes the drawer, and walks to the main door, and walks out, with us left on the room looking at the clock… 7:01 am. Next Scene He is walking down the road, lost in his thoughts, he recalling of whatever memories he still has, with the one he loved. Time had passes but his wounds had not healed, he was and still hurt and
wounded. He was now like a body without any emotions and desires, he lived now only to kill and to find some healing to his pains. As he walked down the street, after some time, a girl, chasing her runaway dog, bangs into him. He is distracted from his thoughts and he looks at the girl, the gets up and apologies to him. To which he doesn’t respond cause he is lost in her face, the face of the girl is the same that he wants to forget. The face of his love, was in front of him.
Girl: I am sorry, Boy not responding… Girl: hello… you ok.. I am sorry. I wasn’t looking were I was going. Sorry Boy; its ok.. The girl runs off after her dog, finally catching him. His eyes are now numb, was it true what he saw, did he really see the girl he loved, or was it an illusion, but it all seemed so real, but she is dead, it can’t be her… then who is she ? He now diverts himself from his route and follows her, observing her from a distance. He is lost in her beauty, as she reminds him of his love, for the first time we see a smile on the face of our character. Watching her from a distance and with a smile on his face, he losses himself to his thoughts and his old memories take over, sending him in a trance. FLASH BACK Next Scene; Under the open sky, they lay together looking at the sky, imagining the clouds as shapes and figures, looking into each other eyes, they share a few dialogues FLASH Covered in a blanket, having hot coca, they are lost among themselves, forgetting about the world that exists around them.
Our boy looks into her eyes, and he is lost in her beauty, they both want to be nearer than they are, they want to feel each other, but their minds are confused, they want to break the rules and be together, but they are afraid, but love always finds its ways, and becomes the strength. He makes his move, and goes closer to her, she too feeling his move, wants to come closer, she wants to feel his touch, but she stays put, she doesn’t move, but doesn’t reacts too. Seeing this our boy moves closer to her, touching her face with his hands, caressing her and then bringing her head closer to his, the girl obliges and comes closer, their lips are so close, they can feel each other’s breath and just then she lean forward and bites him on his cheeks and runs leaving him dazed. He runs after her, calling her name.
