My Lover

Updated: Feb 16, 2020


FADE IN.


  1. INT. MALL - DAY


  2. PETER and his WIFE come out of a restaurant.


  3. WIFE: I'm going to Fusion. You do what you want to do.


  4. PETER (V.O.): (Nodding) : Let me first check if my sports dar of 30 years is still alright.


  5. INT. CAR PARK - DAY


  6. Sitting inside a red sports car, Peter starts the engine.



  7. PETER (V.O.): The last time I drove it, I couldn't shift the stick to 1st gear at all. I started with 2nd gear. After shifting the gears several times, I could shift to 1st gear again. I believe it was because I seldom drive it.


  8. Stepping on the clutch, Peter shifts the stick to 1st gear.


  9. PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd): It's Okay.


  10. Having moved for about a foot, Peter stops the car and shifts the stick to reverse. The car goes back a little. Peter repeats the process again.


  11. PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd): OK, the gear-shifting problem has gone away. There's nothing to fix.


  12. Taking out a screwdriver from the car's central console box, Peter uncovers the car's four wheels' central covers one by one.


  13. PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd): I know the car-testing mechanics prefer that. Now, the car and I are good to go.



  14. EXT. ROAD - DAY


  15. As he drives along, we see quite a number of people can't get their eyes over Peter's car and there're several others who turn their heads.



  16. INT - CAR TESTING CENTRE - DAY


  17. Seeing him and his car arriving, a MECHANIC#1 (40s) chats with Peter.


  18. MECHANIC#1 (Smiling): Classic!


  19. PETER (Smiling): It has been with me for over 30 years!


  20. MECHANIC: Yes, I was then an apprentice.


  21. Waiting room. Peter enjoys a cup of coffee as he reads a car magazine.


  22. PETER (V.O.): I've to update my car knowledge as my son is going to buy a car anytime soon.


  23. Turning the pages, Peter is attracted to an insert. depicting a Nissan Fairlady in the 1970s.


  24. PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd): I seriously thought about buying a used one in the 1970s. I didn't buy it as it was a Japanese two-seater. Then, I preferred an European 2+2 coupe.


  25. Peter reads the small prints of an article.


  26. PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd) (Shocked): Oh, the car was sold at HK$6.2 million in a recent auction in Japan - more expensive

  27. than Italian ones. And the Japanese take great pride that it was a Japanese car.


  28. Pausing.


  29. PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd): (Dreamy eyes): Mine was in the 1980s... It might become another collectors' item. But would I let it go?


  30. MECHANIC#2 (30s) then approaches Peter and passes him some papers.


  31. PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd): Again, my sports car of 30 years is fine.


  32. Peter takes a photo of his sports car before driving away.



  33. INT. CAR PARK - DAY


  34. Having parked the car, Peter re-fixes the central wheel covers.


  35. PETER (V.O.) (Cont'd): My car model hasn't been available in the market for many years already. If I do what I want to do, I'd continue to keep it. It's my lover!


  36. As he walks away, Peter turns around to look at his sports car again.


  37. FADE OUT.


  38. The End
