Kaji: Waiting

FADE IN.


Act 1


INT. SLEEPING ROOM - DAY


KAJI waits at a bed corner. The PACK LEADER is sleeping and Peter is just waking up.


KAJI (V.O.): Not a good morning for me.


Getting up, Peter opens the door to let Kaji go out.


INT. SITTING ROOM - DAY


Walking around, Kaiji inspects into the kitchen.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Not a sound. Our maid has disappeared.


Kaji sees Peter going out.


KAJI (V.O.)(Cont'd): Peter won't be back for a while. There's no point for me to stay hungry waiting here. I had better to stay close to the pack leader waiting for her to get up.


Kaji walks towards the sleeping room without any spirit.


Act 2


INT. SLEEPING ROOM - DAY


Hearing sounds at the door, Kaji rushes out.


INT. SITTING ROOM - DAY


Seeing Peter at the door, Kaji jumps on him, sniffing aggressively his pockets.


KAJI (V.O.): Bad, no food. As I am not rewarded, I won't expect anything from you next time, saving my anxiety.


They return to the sitting room.


INT SLEEPING ROOM - DAY


Kaji jumps onto his bed spot, as Peter goes into the bathroom.


KAJI (V.O.): I know he has just gone to his garden.


We hear phone alarm ringing.


KAJI (V.O.)(Cont'd): The pack leader can't hear.


Coming out of the bathroom and hearing the alarm, Peter wakes the pack leader up.


PETER: Our babe has been waiting at your feet for food.


Reluctantly, the pack leader gets up and walks towards the sitting room.


KAJI (V.O.)(Cont'd): Peter hasn't any breakfast to share with me. And you've delayed my lunch. I know you're preparing it but I'll let you wait.


Seeing Kaji's staying put, Peter comes close to Kaji to pat her.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): It's okay. It isn't your job to serve me meals. It's always the job of our maid and that of the pack leader on a bad morning.


We hear some tapping sounds.


KAJI (V.O.)(Cont'd): I've wasted a lot of my time waiting for such a call. Now, my last name is Hungry and my first name is Very.


Jumping out of bed, Kaji can't wait to run out.


INT. SITTING ROOM - DAY


Food is put inside Kaji's meal bowl.


KAJI (V.O.): Oh, it's just another very ordinary meal. I've waited for a long time but am not rewarded with anything special. So disappointing!


Act 3


INT. SITTING ROOM - CONTINUOUS


Kaji consumes her lunch.


KAJI (V.O.): I've no choice. I don't want to stay hungry. I've to take care of my physical wellbeing.


Finishing, Kaji licks her bowl to make it shine.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): As to my psychological wellbeing, I think I've to change. I won't expect any reward after waiting, how matter how long it is.


Kaji rests by herself on the sofa.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Yes, I shouldn't get anxious or angry by waiting. It isn't good for me.


Kaji sees Peter going out again.


KAJI (V.O.): I won't wait for your return this time.


A beat.


Peter comes back with bags of food in his hands.


KAJI (V.O.): Ah, Peter is repenting...


Kaji welcomes Peter come.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): There can be good moments in a bad morning.


Peter then shares his food with Kaji.


FADE OUT.

THE END
