Kaji: Positive Turnaround


FADE IN:

INT. SITTING ROOM - DAY

Thundering sounds from afar. Kaji sits steadfastly in a sofa corner. She looks out of the window and sees the cloudy sky.

KAJI (V.O.)

The loud noise comes from

the sky. I don't know what it

is.

Kaji pretends that she can't hear.

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

Is the sky angry with me?

It's threatening for sure.

I'm home alone.

Some sounds at the door. Kaji sees PETER returning. Quickly, Peter sits right next to Kaji and begins to pet her.

PETER

You don't know about

thundering. Don't worry,

I'll keep you company.

KAJI (V.O.)

I love Peter touching

me.

Peter types a What'sApp message to a Group Chat: She hasn't wetted the sofa yet. Then Peter takes a photo of Kaji and adds a subtitle: It's thundering outside!. He sends it.

Ding. Having read the What'sApp message: Get her away from the sofa, Peter tries to act.

KAJI (V.O.)

(Confused)

No. I've decided that

here's my safe spot.

Pausing.

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

I don't have a crate to

hide, and in fact, I don't

like any confinement at

all.

Pausing.

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

You don't wrap me with

any clothing to make

me feel secure. Even if

you did it, I don't think

I'd feel secure, and you

know I wear nothing

except my fur.

Pausing.

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

And your words can't

dampen the threatening

noise, not to mention

the strange electricity

and pressure being

around me.

Kaji's body language speaks them all.

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

. Peter, I'm not going

anywhere. I'm staying

put. Don't use any

force...

Some sounds at the door. They see their MAID returning. She first looks at Kaji.

MAID

(Smile a little)

Very frightened?

KAJI (V.O.)

I can't move at all, like

suffering from a panic

attack. Glad that you're

home too.

Using her might, the maid grabs Kaji to her room.

INT. MAID'S ROOM - DAY

Relaxing.

KAJI (V.O)

I tend to forget about

the loud noise when my

maid plays with me -

Yes, positive turnaround

from the negative.

INT. SITTING ROOM - DAY

Cloudy.

KAJI (V.O.)

I don't feel any strange

electricity and pressure

yet. I hear no loud noise

either. Hope today will

be a calm day.

Pondering.

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

How can they calm my

seasonal phobia?

Pausing.

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

They may like to serve

me something that's

really exciting and

delightful so that I'd

refocus on the positive.

Kaji looks at the pack leader, Peter and the maid.

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

Do you all know about

me? And how to do the

positive turnaround?

Meal time. Kaji is served with her usual menu.

FADE OUT.

The End
