INT. 7TH IN FRONT OF THE DOOR TO THE BACK STAIR NIGHT
The customers of the party move to the door of the back stair with the
hurly-burly. Rob, Yoko and Jeff and his fellows are the back of the group.
Where are we going?
We haven't decided, yet.
Yoko looks at Jeff.
Can I take Takeru?
No way. We can't enjoy with him.
Rob says while holding her shoulder. Yoko becomes anxious.
When the party is over?
I don't know. Maybe tomorrow morning or next day.
Yoko looks up at Rob. Rob stares at Yoko with indecent eyes. Yoko looks
back at Jeff and his fellows. Jeff, Chan, Yuen and Li walks without words
and looks at Yoko back. Yoko shows her fear on her face.
I'll go home.
Yoko tries to escape from Rob's hand. Rob grabs her shoulder.
Hey, come on. Let's go with us.
Yoko forces to separate Rob's hand.
No, I have to meet with Takeru.
Yoko runs away to the back stair.
Jeff and his fellows start laughing.
What's the funny?
Rob turns back disappointedly.
Jeff answers with laugh. Rob keeps walking being not satisfied.
INT. BASEMENT OF THE APARTMENT NIGHT
The light of the flash light dances in the dark. The basement is wide
and the light doesn't reach at the interior. Takeru and Christine stick
together and look around.
It's hard to see. Too dark.
Where is the switchboard?
A mouse jumps at them suddenly. Christine screams and holds Takeru.
It's a rat.
Oh, I was surprised.
Takeru and Christine proceed to the interior of the basement.
It reminds us of a childhood, doesn't it?
Takeru and Christine stares at each other.
Didn't you explore something in the dark when you were a child? Japanese
children doesn't do that?
Yes, we do. When I was a child, we did something called "The exploration."
You did? There is no different among us.
Well, I did this, too.
Takeru turns off the flash light and goes somewhere.
Hey, Takeru? Don't do this.
There is no answer.
Takeru!? I didn't do such a nasty thing like this!
Christine is laughing on her face but her voice is shaking. Christine
walks toward the interior while looking for Takeru.
Come on, Takeru! If you keep hiding, I'll leave!
Suddenly, Someone holds Christine from back. Christine turns around with
her fear. Takeru is holding her. Takeru turns on the flash light and smiles.
You wanna make me angry?
Christine calms down and smiles.
Takeru stares at Christine. Christine finds Takeru's changing his mood
and is under tension. They stare at each other closely. Takeru tries kiss
to her but Christine avoids his face and finds the switch board.
Oh, there is the switch board.
Takeru is discouraged and lights the switch board.
There seems to be nothing wrong. Why the blackout happened?
Oh, yes. I remember. It's a maintenance!
Yeah, The management office takes place the maintenance now. It was said
on the bulletin board.
Oh, now we know the reason.
We miss that kind of note often.
There are no conversation again and stares at each other.
Shall we go back?
Takeru says nothing and stares at Christine.
Takeru grabs her both shoulders. Christine is confused and looks at Takeru
with her tension. Takeru moves his face to Christine slowly. Christine
avoids her face right before Takeru tries to kiss her lip but Takeru still
follows her lip. Christine freezes. An edge of Takeru's lip reaches Christine's
lip. Suddenly, the voices are coming from the stair.
I hard the voices.
You think there are someone in this place?
Takeru and Christine is surprised and hold each other. Bobby lights at
Takeru and Christine.
Oh, we're interfered with them.
Sam and Jay show their faces with their interest. Takeru and Christine
Well, well, well, You are the yellow chicken I met. What are you going
to do with a white chick?
Takeru throws the flash light to Bobby at once. The basement becomes dark
at once and Bobby and his fellows wince at the dark. Takeru and Christine
push them away and run away from the basement.
