What I Love


FADE IN:

INT. SITTING ROOM - NIGHT

A table clock displays 10:45. PETER begins his dinner, enjoying screen time as well.

PETER (V.O.)

A friend sent me this music

video. It's a sweet tune. Let

me discern its structure.

Peter listens very carefully as his WIFE joins him for dinner.

EXT. CAR - DAY

Sitting at the driver seat waiting, Peter researches with his phone.

PETER (V.O.)

Oh, here I see something

interesting. I had a hunch

my draft could be better!

As Peter's wife getting inside the car, Peter drives away.

INT. STUDY - DAY

Relaxing on a sofa, Peter has his eyes glued to his phone.

PETER (V.O.)

That's a complicated issue.

Let me deal with it only at

a later stage. It's another

big task. I aim to accomplish

my main task today around tea

time.

Peter returns to his computer desk and begins to type.

A table clock displays 13:30.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

I can only finish my first

task now. It's mainly

factual.

Peter clicks the SEND key.

A beat.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Okay, I've done the second

one. The contents are

somewhat pre-determined.

The table clock displays 15:00. Peter's phone rings.

CALLER#1

(From phone)

Hi Peter, you haven't been

responsive.

PETER

Oh, sorry, I've been focusing

on drafting something.

CALLER#1

(From phone)

Call me back then. I've to settle something with you before the

middle of next week. You may

also call me on Saturday...

PETER

Oh, I've to appear in court

from Tuesday to Thursday

next week...

CALLER#1

Let me jot you a few lines

then.

PETER

Thank you very much!

Call ends. Peter refocuses on his work.

The table clock displays 15:15.

PETER (V.O.)

I love my punchy conclusion.

My last task is done!

Peter clicks the SEND key.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

I can go and have my

lunch now.

EXT. ROAD - DAY

Having checked a phone message, Peter types: "I'd do anything you ask me to for the good of the institution."

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Because the activities

are meaningful.

Peter then sees a Thumb Up icon on his phone screen.

INT. RESTAURANT - DAY

A bowl of noodles and lemon water on his plate, Peter's phone rings.

CALLER#2

(From phone)

Thank you for sending

me your stuff. Let's

send them next Tuesday.

PETER (V.O.)

My self-imposed deadline

is today.

PETER

Let's do that on Monday,

as I'm not free from Tuesday

onwards.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

I still have the Saturday

afternoon and Sunday

to improve them.

Peter takes a big mouthful of food.

CALLER#2

They all look good.

Peter chews the slices of lemon and swallows them.

INT. STUDY - DAY

Peter tidies up a few things. A phone notification: "We'll send you the other stuff ASAP."

Peter types back: "No hurry, I've to speak and perform tomorrow morning and won't deal with your stuff now."

PETER (V.O.)

I need work-life balance.

Peter picks up a deep green electric guitar and plays.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Oh my God, I couldn't

remember the lyrics that

I wrote! I couldn't play

the song's chords right

too!

Peter opens some store boxes and some guitar gig bags.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

I couldn't even find my

song sheets! It has been

a long time since I last

played.

Peter keeps on searching . He then opens a box file and examines the sheets inside.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Oh, here're some of my

manuscripts. I couldn't

even remember some of

the numbers that I wrote.

Many of them haven't been

recorded yet. Creativity

is what I love!

Picking up some song sheets, Peter scans and sends them.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

Let me share my songs

with the young and bright

tomorrow morning!

Peter picks up a guitar nearby and begins to play. We hear sweet tunes.

PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd)

My songs are also structured.

Some of my tunes are very

sweet too!

FADE OUT. The End
