Kaji: Yesterday

FADE IN.


Act 1


INT - SITTING ROOM - NIGHT


KAJI is playing the fetching game with PETER.


KAJI (V.O.): We've just had a good night out.


FLASHBACK


INT, SITTING ROOM - THE NIGHT BEFORE


Kaji sees the PACK LEADER packing her bag. She stares at Peter.


KAJI (V.O.): Are we going out?

As Peter stays put, Kaji looks out of the window.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): It's very dark outside.


PACK LEADER: Stay home. The typhoon is still around.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): The past few days have been unusual.


Act 2


INT - SITTING ROOM - HOURS EARLIER


Kaji sees the PACK LEADER packing her bag. She stares at Peter.


PETER: Kai, Kai!


KAJI (V.O.): Got it!


EXT. STREETS - LATER


Crowded. Kaji leads the Pack Leader and Peter.


KAJI (V.O.): Going out is fun. It doesn't matter where we're going.


EXT. PET GARDEN - LATER


Arrived.


KAJI (V.O.): I enjoy the journey. I always know the way.


In the lawn, Kaji checks in her favourite spots. She checks out via a barrier's hollow space.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Yes, I use the fast track now.


Kaji strolls for awhile.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): None of my friends are here. Let's go.


EXT. STREETS - LATER


Stopping at a junction, Kaji sees a DOG and his MAID. Unprovoked, the dog begins barking at Kaji.


KAJI (V.O.): So rude. You're nearly 1/3 larger than me. Do I pose a threat to you?


Aggressive barking continues.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I'm not afraid of you! See my upright tail!


Kaji walks past, ignoring the dog.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I only fear unusual loud sounds and flashing lights.


Pausing.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Few would see my fearful look.


Recalling.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Ah, Peter - the photo addict - might have captured it.


ACT 3


Crossing the junction, Kaji sees a new FRIEND.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): He looks gentle. Let me say hello to him.


Warmly, they greet each other.


RETURN TO PRESENT


Kaji jumps up onto the sofa to join Peter.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): My yesterday emotions have all gone.


Pausing.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): I won't let yesterday take up much of today.


Pausing.


KAJI (V.O.) (Cont'd): Today is a blessing. Tomorrow is a mystery.


FADE OUT.

THE END
