Scene 1 – MJ Intend To Get Rid Of The Evidence
MJ stare at the waves for a long time, the box in his hand. The night is especially dark tonight…dark and cold. He look sadly down at the box and took his hand away from it as it floats in mid-air, moving it outward hovering above the water. His heart is beating fast but he tried to ignore it.
From behind, a woman arms envelope him, hugging him tight in a back hug as her cheek settle warmly on his back. He knew who it was. He remember her smell, he remember her touch…as if the years had never erase anything.
Woman: Kisohn…this is all that my heart can give you, and I won’t ask for anything more. Just take this with you, wherever you go. If you never open it, I’ll understand. But just take it with you. As for me I’m going to be here, waiting for you…I know you might never come back and I know you don’t want me to. But what can I do? This stubborn heart no longer see anything but you. You know I’m good at waiting right? I don’t mind the wait (she sobbed quietly)…I can wait forever…
MJ didn’t move but the box continue hovering further and further out to sea. He close his eyes as the box plunge into the ocean. She hugged him tighter.
Woman: I love you so much…so much more than life itself.
The box stop it’s decent mere inches from the water. He turned around and look at her, full of sorrow and regret in his eyes. His hands shook as it came up close to her face. When he touch her face to wipe the tears away her image fade and she disappear. The box reappear back in his hands.
These were the last word she had said to him when they last parted…now her image is just a dream, a memory, an illusion…he no longer can tell the difference.
As he walked back with the box Ahnya appeared in front of him. She put a hand on the box.
Ahnya: you need to come home with us Kisohn…the longer you wait, the worst off it’s going to be. We can try and help you fix this. Song Yi never need to know about this…
MJ: (he took her hand off the box, resignation in his eyes) Fix it? How? How do you plan on doing that?….unless during the time I’m gone our people have perfected long distance time travel to the past? (Ahnya remain silent) then you’re 4 years too late. (He disappear)
Scene 5 – MJ Tried To Coax SY To Take Maternity Class
MJ is pulling SY out from their bedroom but she’s refusing to cooperate.
SY: (clutching both hands on the door frame) Min Joon-ah I don’t want to go…you can’t make me!!
MJ: (turn back around to look at her in exasperation) You have to go, everyone in your condition have to go (he look down at her protruding belly).
SY: no! Not everyone! Listen, why don’t we hire someone? Hmm? Have them come to the house, it’s the same thing.
MJ: no, it’s not the same thing. I’m going to be right next to you, what are so afraid of anyways?
SY: I’m not afraid! (yank her hand out of his) I’m Cheon Song Yi! Cheon Song Yi! I’m a top star right now! I can’t be seen in public like this! (Looking down at her belly again) and no heels? I have my image to keep…what will the press say? (shook head again and give him puppy eyes) let’s just forget about it, just stay with me at home huh? We’ll watch a video on it! You know I’m not good with classes anyways…it’ll be the same thing doing it from home! The Internet! (point at laptop in the corner) Plenty of information on the Internet!
MJ: (let out a big sigh) Song Yi-ah…you know I love you right? But right now you’re being completely irrational and childish. I’m going to be there if you need anything…these classes and interaction will help you when you’re in labor and help us understand how to raise and take care of our baby. Also, everyone knows you’re pregnant, it’s already in the news…no one is going to expect you to keep your figure and look like you did before.
SY: (gasp) you really think so? Is it starting already…am I getting fat at just 5 months? (Looks around at herself in trepidation)
MJ: that’s not what I mean sweetheart. (come closer and give her a big hug) don’t worry so much what people think…just worry about what your husband think…and I think you’re beautiful no matter what. (he cups her face in his hand) as a matter of fact, you radiate with beauty right now. (he leans into her ears and whisper) When we get home I’ll make sure you know just how irresistible and desirable my Song Yi is (giving her ear a little bite)
SY: (gave him a defeated grin and hit him playfully on the chest) ok fine…but you have to in turn promise me we will go to an ultrasound together.
MJ: I already told you that’s not necessary, I can see and hear her just fine, she’s doing great. Why do we need to take you to someplace to have some guy probe and touch you and tell you exactly what I’m telling you now?
SY: because I haven’t seen her…and I want to see her. (then turn and look at him suspiciously) are you by any chance jealous of a doctor?
MJ: what? phhfff…that’s ridiculous! I just told you I can tell if she’s doing good or not, beside I was a doctor at one point in my life, I already told you that…so why would you need to go see anyone else? (She disengage herself from him, stare him down with her eyebrow raised, her hand crossed over her chest, her feet tapping) WHAT?! I’m NOT JEALOUS!
SY: (walk back to her bed and plop down) well then if I you won’t let me go see the ultrasound then I won’t go to those maternity, birthing classes.
MJ: (looks up at the ceiling in frustration) ok fine! But we are only doing 1 ultrasound and that’s it!
SY: ….so does that mean I only need to take 1 class?
MJ: CHEON SONG YI!! (SY puts up her hands in surrender)
Scene 11 – HK Having a Fun Day With Ahnya At The Fair
HK: (pacing back and forth in his office) nothing happen last night…why do I need to worry so much for? (continue with self-reasoning) I’ve already put in this much effort might as well continue…(inhale deeply) but how do I get closer to her after what happen…without actually getting close? (turns to his office phone and dialed, turning on speaker) Secretary Jin can you please come to my office?
Secretary: (bow) what can I assist you with sir
HK: how do you go about…winning a girl over?
Secretary: excuse me sir?
HK: yeah you know, court a girl…without…you know…being too involved?
Secretary: you….take her to a movie?
HK: no, that’s not it.
Secretary: dinner then.
HK: already done. Anything else?
Secretary: (thoughtful for a minute) maybe just ask her what she like to do?
HK: (snap his finger and smiled) you’re a genius! Why didn’t I think of that?…good job (pat him on the back) make sure to remind me to give you a raise at the end of the month. Ok you can go now, thanks!
HK pick up his cell phone and called Song Yi…
Song Yi knock on Ahnya’s door.
Ahnya: (opens door, taken aback) you never come to my room.
SY: (hand her phone over) Hwi Kyung wants to talk to you. Ya, what’s with you people and no phone…shouldn’t you have one of your own by now?
Ahnya: (smile at SY with amusement in her eyes) so you’re getting used to the idea of me staying here then?
SY: (roll her eyes) puh! like that’s ever going to happen.
Ahnya: (shrug) you never know, one day you might really miss me.
SY: (push the phone into Ahnya’s hand) give it back when you’re done (turns and walk away)
Ahnya: hmmm, (laugh softly), I think she’s warming up to me a bit. (Ahnya walked over and sat on a chair by her desk) Hello? What? You want to do what? (unconsciously playing with the buttons on her blouse and smiling) why? I thought after what happen….(stood up abruptly)…no, no…I’m ok with it…where do I want to go? Ummm…the fair?…I’ve been wanting to… (scrunch her face) why wouldn’t you think I like it?….well, I can have fun too you know!! ….ok I’ll see you later then. (Put the phone back on the desk but continue staring at it) what? Just because I’m an alien does that mean I don’t know how to have fun?…it’s BECAUSE I’m an alien that I’m going to take this opportunity to have fun. (Looking upward talking to unseeing aliens) …and I don’t care what you think either so stop judging me, it can’t always be about work and research you know? At least let me have this before I go!
Vignette scenes between HK and Anhya having fun at the fair (new OST playing in bg):
-Ahnya trying to hit all the popping animals and laughing staring back at HK….

HK and Ahnya standing at the photo booth looking at their picture taken on the ride.
Vendor: it’s a great photo yes? You guys look so in love….why don’t you get your beautiful lady this couple keychain with the picture engrave on it?
HK: oh no, you got it all wrong we’re not…
Ahnya: oh could you? How long would that take?
Vendor: not long, just give me a moment.
HK look away uncomfortably as Ahnya looked at him with mischief, shrug, and smile.
Now they are both walking together eating some vendor street food.
HK: did you have fun today? (Ahnya nods her head while still eating and smiling). Good. (Suddenly he looked up and saw a large group of students charging towards them, he instinctively grabs her body and pushes her towards him trying to shield her from being trampled over)…these kids really… (He looked down and realizes too late that one of his arm is wrapped around her waist and the other cradling her head in a close embrace as she looked at him frozen with shock and awe. He quickly jump back away from her) erhmm….finish your food (look at his watch) we should be leaving now. (then he walk off in a hurry leaving her staring after him with food still in her mouth).
Scene 14 – MJ & SY Talk About Naming Their Baby
SY is laying on the swing as MJ sat on the grass facing her. They both stare up into the night sky. He wraps his arms tightly around her and pulled up the blanket for her.
MJ: Should we head in now Song Yi? I don’t want you to catch a cold in your condition. (she shook her head)
SY: Not yet, stay with me here a little longer. I love being out here, together with you at night, looking up at the sky…do you miss your home?
MJ: My home is with you Song Yi-ah (he brush his fingertips down her hair) you’re the only home in my heart.
SY: (she brushes her thumb over his lips)…you have some crumbs left from desert (laughs) what about a name?
MJ: what? What name? (he was distracted by her thumb tracing slowly across his lips)
SY: I don’t think we’ve discuss the name for our baby yet. My mother is already giving me a list of names to pick from. I told her that I want you to help me with the name (turn to look at him) have you thought of any yet?
MJ: (looks away guiltily) sorry love, I haven’t had the time to think about it.
SY: (pulls his face back to look at her) It’s ok Min Joon-ah, let’s think about it now…should she have your last name Do? I know it’s not your last name and your real name doesn’t have a last name…
MJ: we can use your last name, it doesn’t matter to me all that much.
SY: I’ve always known you as Do Min Joon…so, let’s just give her your last name then…so what about her first name?
MJ: Do you have anything in mind?
SY: (rubs her belly slowly) hmm…(looks back up at the night sky) since you are from another star, I want her to shine as bright as her father’s star…something that says how precious she is to both of us, a true miracle.
MJ: (thinking for a bit) how about Jin Sunhee? (he leaned down and kisses her belly softly) Do Jin Sunhee…my precious girl of brightness.
SY: (closes her eyes and sigh happily) I love it…it’s perfect. Everything is just perfect right now.
Scene 16 – The Other Woman’s Love
MJ stare at the black box sitting ominously on his desk. He didn’t have the heart to get rid of it so now there’s only one option left to do. His fingers inch closer to it then he took his hand back. What is he thinking? He shouldn’t open it…it could unleash all kinds of havoc. But the box had been appearing in his dream more and more frequently…almost as if calling out to him. He sat down on the chair, slowly his hand came back to the key protruding from the lock. He closed his eyes and his fingers held the key and slowly unlock it. The lid pop open and inside is a bundle of letters, there must be at least over 30 letters here. His fingers trace over the letters and open the bow tie. Opening the first letter, MJ nearly wept with joy seeing her hand-writing…only then did he realize how much he had missed her. He lovingly trace her beautiful handwriting that is so like her before reading the letter.
My dearest heart,
I wrote this now as a memory from when I first met you. Before you came into my life, I never thought much about writing letters. But now you say you’re leaving soon, away from me, and probably forever. How could I possibly let you go without a trace of me? So I’ve been back-tracking my thoughts in these letters, to let you know everything that lays in my heart…something to take with you wherever it is you called home. How I wish fervently that I can be your home but this world we live it, is too cruel a world for us. If one of us could leave this place then I’m happy that it is you…that you could have a chance at happiness. Don’t worry about me, I will live for you, I will live for us…and I will continue writing until the day you have to leave me behind and beyond all the years even afterward…even without you in it. I don’t regret anything and I will live on like I had promised you…to treasure every moment we shared together and every memory we have created.
Do you remember that fateful day you saved my life? I could never forget that day. When your hand touched mine and your lips called out my name I felt my whole world tilting though I don’t understand why. Even as my husband is standing next to me, holding me tight, I can’t help but look at you walking away…wanting to feel your hands on me once again. And when you collapse, my heart collapse with you….this wretched pain I feel for a stranger was more real than anything I have ever experienced in my entire life. My life…this life, which has been quite a fairy-tale, felt like a dream all of a sudden…a dream I now want to wake up from…was I such a foolish girl even from the very beginning?
MJ dropped the letter to the floor and cover his face as he silently, angrily sobs into his hands.
–Flash Back to 4 Years Ago–
MJ is standing on the balcony saying his last goodbye to SY but she’s crying, refusing to look at him. Her heartbreak is tearing him apart and he vowed to himself that he will come back. He would come back for her no matter what.
His body is disappearing…being pulled out to somewhere, he’s not quite sure where. He dissipated and reappeared again. A bit disoriented he stood up and look around. There’s lots of trees, looks like he’s in some kind of forest or Preserved Park of some sort…it looks very much like earth. This is NOT his spaceship…and NOT his home planet…so where is this? Why is he here? He heard a woman screaming. On instinct he teleported to the voice and saw a woman dangling off a cliff holding on to a slim branch as it start to snap off.
Not wanting to use his powers in case he frightens her, he lean down instead and reach his hand to grab hers.
MJ: hold on to me…I got you! (he lifted her up and away from the cliff in one quick pull. He stood up and dusted off his jacket)
She landed on the ground still sitting at his feet, her hand to her heart breathing deeply. She looked up at him and smiled with gratitude.
Woman: Thank you…(breathe) for saving…(breathe)…me…(breathe) …if it wasn’t for you I would have…(breathe)…died.
MJ stopped dead in his track and just stare down at her. He couldn’t breathe, he could hardly believe it. He rub his eyes just to be sure…her hair is different, it’s long, straight, and black…a little messy at the moment. There’s some dirt smudges on her face and little scratches here and there…but….but….did he someone move back in time? MJ is too happy for words. He kneeled down next to her and hug her tight in his arms.
MJ: Song Yi-ah, I thought I lost you (hug her tighter)…I don’t know what this means but just seeing you again….I (before he could say anymore a male’s hand pulled his shoulder and yank him away from her)
HK: Who are you and what do you think you’re doing? (he pulled SY into his embrace and kissed her forehead)…are you ok honey?
SY: I’m fine…I’m fine now, don’t get the wrong idea Hwi Kyung-ah…thanks to this man here, he saved me. I almost fell down that cliff over there (she laughs it off) clumsy me as always…(HK pulled her away from him and look at her in shock)
HK: …and I wasn’t here? I wasn’t here to save you? I’m so sorry sweetie (he rubs her hair and touch her face looking for further injuries) are you hurt anywhere else? We should take you to the hospital.
SY: (looks at HK lovingly and patted his cheek) I’m fine husband, just a little shaken up.
MJ is in complete shock looking at the exchange in front of his eyes. What in the world is happening? His head is screaming…all his body parts want to explode with anger. He grabbed her hand and yanked her back to him.
MJ: (nervous laugh) Song Yi-ah, what’s going on, why are you playing with me. (she didn’t reply but stare at him in puzzlement then stare at his hand on her arms, unblinkingly).
HK: (walk two steps over and grab her whole body back to him, looking at MJ with dead seriousness) you may have saved my wife and I’m thankful for that but don’t overstep your boundary.
MJ: sorry…I mistook her for someone I know…(turns quickly away)
HK look down at his wife, who still look dazed from the shock…he hugged her to him, his back to MJ…she faces MJ and continue looking at him curiously.
MJ took a step away. What cruel joke is this? He had barely say his goodbye to Song Yi, he could barely cope…just to land in front of Song Yi again…but….what kind of hell did he land on instead? She’s Song Yi, but she’s not his Song Yi…he could see that now. He took another step away, then another. He clutch at his heart, so this is what utter-heartbreak feels like…another step…the world is spinning out of control….his visions, swallowed in a sea of tears…another step…he clutch his heart tighter willing it to beat again….another step….MJ suddenly collapse onto the ground in a dead faint.
