JAPANESE LESSON

JAPANESE LESSON

Shiken Haramitsu Daikoumyo

He leans over to the still figure in bed (shadows keeping her from view) and kisses her.

YOUNG MAN

(walking over to the laptop)

I found a new pair of sticks for you.

They say they were made from lava rock.

He turns off the Japanese lesson and walks over to the windows, fully opening the curtains to fill the room with light.

Taking a pair of chopsticks from the inside of his coat pocket he sits down by the bed and places them in his love’s nonresponsive hand.

YOUNG MAN

The old lady I bought ‘em from

says you can sometimes still feel the heat.

His hand cupped around hers, he looks at her. (We slowly tilt up to her face as the MUSIC starts.

She’s young like him, but in a vegetative state, her mouth hanging open, eyes staring out into nothing. He gently brushes her hair from her face.
