Kaji: The Fruit

Act 1


INT. DINING ROOM - NIGHT


Under the table, KAJI hears sounds at the piano chair.


KAJI (V.O.): That's a audio marker for me to jump onto it.


Observing.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): But a gang member has already occupied half of the chair.


Pausing.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): And the space here is so cramped. How can I do a high jump?


Recalling.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I believe I've got good techniques.


Act 2


FLASHBACK


INT. SITTING ROOM - DAY


Kaji, the PACK LEADER and the GANG are watching TV. They see an image running fast forward to a take-off point towards a bar.


KAJI (V.O.): Yes, speed and power.


Then, they see the image twisting and going over headfirst with the back to the bar.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Yes, flexibility and spatial awareness too.


RETURN TO PRESENT


INT. DINING ROOM - CONTINUOUS


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Being under the table, I can't use speed here. But I've power.


Flexibly, Kaji jumps up in a nearly upright position onto the chair and lands his legs on it properly.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I know I can do it! I've challenged my limit.


Kaji then stares at the GANG MEMBER.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Won't you reward me with anything?


GANG MEMBER: Look at the way she sits in the chair. Her body is larger than the space she occupies.


All smiles.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Is that all I get?


Kaji then sees fruits being put on the table.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Isn't love the fruit of our bondage?


ACT 3


INT. DINING ROOM - CONTINUOUS


GANG MEMBER: Be patient.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I'm thirsty. The one on the right seems juicy. The one the left seems sweet.


The gang member lets Kaji have a piece of the water melon.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): OMG! I know now what God eats!


Kaji takes a look of the yellow fruit on the far side.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Having tasted the red one, I won't bother with other fruits. Our bondage is sweet enough.


Pausing.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Flying up to the chair like that is a risk worth taking.


Kaji gets another piece.


FADE OUT.

THE END
