Scene 2: MJ Confronts YJ About SM
YJ: (pull the motorbike to a stop on the side of the road and look back at SM angrily) DO NOT ever do that again on my bike!
SM: what? It was only for a few seconds.
YJ: that few seconds could have cost you your life! What makes you think it’s ok to stand up and put your hands in the air on a moving bike?
SM: ok! Ok! I just got a little carried away for a moment there.
YJ: the rule is, when you’re riding on my bike your arms must always be wrapped around me for safety reasons…I don’t want to have to explain to your mother why her daughter have a big gaping hole on the side of her head (his animated hands came up to his head to enact the imagery).
SM: (grin at him from the side) what like this? (She wraps both her arms around him and squeeze tight. He momentarily at a loss for words and turn away) I guess this not only work for safety reasons but a good way to shut you up too huh? Ok, you made enough of a scene, let’s go. I promise this time I won’t let go.
YJ smile slightly and drove off.
On the other side of the street MJ held on to the groceries as he stare at the disappearing bike. He had tune in to the conversation between YJ and SM and is genuinely perplex about this new development.
MJ sat on the couch, his hands crossed over his chest staring off into space. The door open and YJ walked in humming.
MJ: you’re home finally.
YJ: are you waiting for me Hyung?
MJ: no….(pause) kind of. Your sister is taking her afternoon nap right now so I thought I’d talk to you.
YJ: sure. What about? (He walked over to the kitchen for a glass of water)
MJ: where were you and who were you with? (YJ gave a puzzle look as he took a drink)
YJ: uhh, no one I just came back from the university. Where are all these questions coming from all of a sudden hyung? I don’t think you ever cared about my coming and going before (took another drink)
MJ: are you and SM dating?
YJ: (spits out all the water in his mouth) I…how did you know I was with Se Mi?
MJ: so I was right…and you just lied to me.
YJ: (came and sat next to MJ) hyung I’m sorry. I won’t do it again. But it’s not like what you think…so don’t mention any of this to SY ok?
MJ: so you are or are not dating SM?
YJ: of course not! We are just…being friends, she’s really not my type. Do you know how much older she is then me? It would be like dating my own sister! (he did a little exaggerated shudder)
MJ: but you guys knew each other for how long now? I don’t recall you being that close to her before.
YJ: you’re thinking too much, we’re not that close, I just give her rides on my bike sometimes that’s all. (MJ stare at him for a long time, then nod his head)
Ahnya came in the door and both MJ and YJ turn to her direction. YJ stood up and quickly came to her side and gave her a hug. Ahnya was taken aback a bit but hug him back. YJ let her go shortly and looking a bit perplex just head to his room, deep in thoughts.
Ahnya: (laughs) what was that about?
MJ: (his eyes follow YJ) I’m waiting to discuss that with you…do you have some time?
Scene 3: A Meeting Between MJ, Ahnya, and Qahnki
MJ and Ahnya at an empty field.
Ahnya: (ask MJ again) are you sure you’re ready to face him?
MJ: yeah, I want both your input. At this point I need as much help as I can get.
Ahnya: (press her temple and a few seconds later the hologram of Qahnki sitting in a chair lit up) I brought Kisohn here to see you, he need to discuss some important matter with us.
Qahnki: (nod his head slowly) Kisohn…it’s been a while, you haven’t age a bit it seems.
MJ: let’s skip the pep talk shall we? I know you’ve been monitoring me and the two worlds for a long while, Ahnya has filled me in on some things. Now I need to discuss with both of you about my new suspicion in regards to what’s going on and perhaps we can all come up with a solution for this.
Qahnki: why should we? Our priory and Ahnya’s mission was to only bring you home.
Ahnya: the reason we want him back home was to fix the imbalance cause on this Earth but now the game plan has changed and you know that. Since they have created an offspring, everything is more complicated and his return home is not going to solve the problem.
Qahnki: (turn to Ahnya) you might be right but him staying is not helping either.
MJ: right now I don’t want to discuss about leaving or staying, I want to talk about the two worlds first. Once we solve that then we will talk about me.
Ahnya: I agree with Kisohn.
Qahnki: fine, let’s hear what you have to say.
MJ: I’ve been having stronger and stronger visions of the other world in my head and in my dreams, sometimes I feel like the daytime illusions I have of the other Sing Yi are actually real. All this started fairly recent. Actually to be specific, it’s about around the time my Song Yi got pregnant. If my deductions are correct it may have something to do with that.
Qahnki: (thinking for a long moment) I’m not sure should I share this information with you…I suppose it couldn’t hurt as we are both trying to fix the same problem. (He pause further) We have been monitoring both worlds diligently and for the past few months I’ve had reports of the other world moving rather rapidly into alignment with the earth here. Our team estimates it to be within a month or two. I take it that might be when the birth of your child will happen?
Ahnya: (surprise) how come you didn’t mention anything to me about it?
Qahnki: it’s on a need to know basis. (turn back to Kisohn) you’re probably experiencing this “crossings” because you’re connected to both world. From what you’re saying it looks like this child act as a bridge for you. And since she will be born to this earth, you might be permanently grounded to this earth and won’t need to transverse back and forth between the two worlds. That will be good for you.
MJ: what will happen to the other world?
Qahnki: (look thoughtful for a bit) we have our theories but nothing is known for certain.
MJ: (look over at Ahnya) have you seen Sing Yi’s gift for me recently?
Ahnya: the grand white piano? Yes…but I’m a little confuse, was that the same piano you gave to the other Song Yi on her birthday?
MJ: exactly the same…even down to the dent at the back, though the situation that causes the dent is separately different, it is there nonetheless. It’s like…
Ahnya: an inescapable fate?
MJ: (nod slowly) and just now, I found out Yoon Jae and Se Mi is developing a closer bond which had never happen before.
Ahnya: wasn’t in the other world those two were engage and about to get married?
Qahnki: so looks like one of our theories might be closely correct. While the alternate world is coming closer to align with this one, it seems to mean the fates of those in the alternate world will highly influence those in this world. When your child is born, it’s highly likely that the alignment will be complete and the existent of the alternate world will no longer be needed.
MJ: what do you mean by that?
Ahnya: (look over sadly at MJ) he means that the alternate world will simply dissipated into thin air merging its essence and life force onto this world…it won’t be a place you can go to any longer.
MJ: (swallowed audible as his chest rise and fall) I don’t’ get it. That doesn’t make sense. Song Yi…Hwi Kyung’s wife…(Ahnya flinch at the mention of HK and his relation to SY in the other world) is she…is she going to disappear as well?
Ahnya: (put her hand on his shoulder) theoretically it would seem so…is that not a good thing?
MJ: (turns his head away from both of them, his heart shook violently) yes, I suppose it is.
Scene 8: 3rd Year In Alternate World – A Discussion About Divorce
SY sat at the table eating dinner with HK just like any other day. She sip at her soup then raise her head towards her husband.
SY: (said quietly) I want a divorce.
HK: (immediately put all his silverware down) you don’t mean that.
SY: I do. I wouldn’t have voiced it if I haven’t thought about it from every angle.
HK: is it because of that guy? Are you insane? I know that you have a fascination with him but are you seriously considering a divorce with me over someone you met once?
SY: twice, but that’s not the point. No Hwi Kyung, I’m doing this for me.
HK: twice?? When? (He put up a hand) You know what never-mind, I don’t want to know. (Pause for a while) We were doing fine before he came along.
SY: no, Hwi Kyung, you were doing fine…I…I was living a lie.
HK: (look down at his food and started eating with gusto, tears falling down his plate) are you saying you never loved me?
SY: (she stare at the shaking hands on her lap…she can do this…she have to do this) of course I love you, you’ve been my friends for longer than I can remember. But Hwi Kyung, I did not realize that there’s more than just one kind of love in this world. Our love…it’s not the kind that last, I don’t love you like how a woman should really love a man.
HK: what? And I suppose you’re going to say your love for that man is the kind that will?
SY: I’m not going to pretend to know what kind of love me and Kisohn have or may not have. All I can say right now is about us. I want you to be happy, to find your own happiness because I can’t give that to you…not anymore. Even if Kisohn never came, this thing between us would have end eventually.
HK: (slap his hand on the table and scream at her) this THING you casually mention is our marriage vows, between two people…does that not mean anything to you?!
SY: (burst out with emotion) how could you say that to me? How could it not mean anything to me? Have I not given you all that I am for more than half my life? For almost two decades! What more do you want from me Hwi Kyung? I left my acting career so I can cater to your every need! I left my childhood behind so I can care for you unconditionally! (Her voice crack as her fingers twist in her dress) I just can’t do it anymore Hwi Kyung. Please…I beg you. Just let me go.
HK: (stood up and turn away from her. His tears continue it descends) so all along my brother was right…you’re only here out of pity and guilt. I had hoped…I had wanted you to feel something more. (sounds tired and defeated) I’m sorry, Song Yi. I can’t give you what you want. If we get a divorce my family will destroy you…I can’t let that happen even if you’re bent on destruction. And another thing you might want to know, the Kisohn that you treasure so much told me himself that he have a lover waiting for him back home and he will leave to come back to her…he doesn’t want anything to do with you. I didn’t want to tell you this, I didn’t want to hurt you. But you should know now what you’re getting yourself into. (he breath in a sniffle) I’m going to leave for the state tomorrow, do whatever you want. (HK left without looking back at her)
SY scream out her frustration and sweep all the plates and utensils to the floor, her face down on the table sobbing uncontrollably.
Scene 12: HK Intense Moment With Ahnya and Seeking Advice From SM
HK dazed off again for the…well he doesn’t remember how many times as he had lost count.
Secretary: erhhmm…. (clear throat)
HK: ahh, yes?
Secretary: this is the 16th time you zone out and rubbing that keychain.
HK: yes I see…(he look down at the keychain picture of him and Ahnya in his hand) do I pay you enough to keep track of my personal life too? Probably not…remind me to give you another raise at the end of this month. (look perplex and cock head to one side) why do you think a woman would ignore you just when everything was going good? It’s been two weeks…isn’t this a bit much for playing hard to get?
Secretary: if I may sir? (HK nod his head distractedly) from what I understand, did you not wait patiently for Song Yi for over 13 years? What’s so different now?
HK: (shook his finger at his secretary) you make a good point, that’s the more reason I want to find out.
Secretary: well, if the mountain won’t come to you then you should make it a point to come to the mountain (then drop the documents and left with a grin).
HK: …the mounta…this guy makes a good point! (dial phone)
Human Resource: yes sir?
HK: I need you to give my secretary a raise…give him a bonus for this month too.
HR: what? Again? (but HK already hung up the phone)
HK was just about to ring the doorbell when SY opens up.
SY: what are you doing here HK?
HK: well, I just got off work (looking around inside pass SY) wondering by to say hi and check up on you is all.
SY: (roll her eyes) if you’re looking for Ahnya just say so. She’s still here last I check. I’m going out or a little walk to the playground…be back soon. (then she left as HK step inside and close the door)
HK: (rub his hands together nervously, then walked up the stairs to Ahnya’s room. He hesitated for a bit then knock loudly…no one answer) Ahnya, it’s me…can we…talk? I need to ask you something. Hello? (still no answer. He waited. And waited. No answer. Knock again, no answer. Finally he gave up and walk away but change his mind last minute and step inside the bathroom).
HK turn on the faucet and splash water onto his face. What’s wrong with him? Why is he being so sidetracked over a kiss? What was he thinking? She’s an alien after all…he should just let things be, what good is it to probe further? He turns off the faucet, swirl around, and gasp in shock.
HK: why did you scare me like that!?
Ahnya: what are you doing here? Wasn’t I being clear enough last time?
HK: why didn’t you answer your door? (Ahnya looks annoyed at him then turn around about to leave but on instinct HK grab her wrist and pulled her back closer to him)
Ahnya: I wouldn’t do that if I were you.
HK: I’m sorry (he let her go) but I just need you to stop running away and explain to me why you’re avoiding me? What happen, what did I do? (Ahnya stare at him intensely, and then without saying a word she pop a pill into her mouth and swallowed) what was that? Why did you just swallow that pill?
Ahnya: so I can do this (suddenly all the water faucet turns on as she pulls his head down to her parted lips. Once their lips touched HK was again besieged with that tingling fever, that heated hunger that’s now multiplying itself ten folds from the two week’s long absence. He pulled her in tightly to his chest, turn around and sat her on the sink counter, angling his mouth for a deeper kiss with no intention of letting her go this time….their clothes getting wet from the spray of the faucet but neither one notice.
[camera pans outside the door and down the hallway, the only sound heard was of the running water]
–a while later–
SM: (rushed to the restaurant, then seeing HK sitting at a table, came over and sat down) so what happen? What’s the emergency? (A waiter came by and she breathlessly wave him away, then thought again) a glass of water please. (turn her attention back to HK) what’s wrong?
SM: can you be a bit clearer than that?…you look perfectly fine.
HK: Song Yi…I wanted her before…for a long, long time…that I can’t see anything else beside her, it became like a bad habit I couldn’t get rid of.
SM: (slum back in the chair) is this about Song Yi again? (glance away incredulously) ya! I thought I was stubborn all those years harboring this one sided feelings for you, but I had let you go when I realize we’re just not meant to be but why are you still hung up on her? She’s married and about to have someone else’s child! Hwi Kyung-ah you need…
HK: it’s Ahnya.
HK: I think I’m falling for her.
SM: WHAT?!! (close her eyes with frustration) say something that make sense.
HK: that’s just it, nothing seems to make sense. I don’t know how it happens, how she could get me to forget all about Song Yi when I’m with her. But I can’t fall for her…she’s an alien! What am I going to do when she leave? I’m going crazy thinking about it.
SM: that’s the emergency you call me out for? (she quickly drank the remaining water and got up to leave)
HK: what? You’re leaving already? Aren’t you going to give me some advice?
SM: yes, here’s an advice for you…next time you want advice about relationship matter please don’t call out someone who have not a clue or experience about it! And especially someone who used to have a thing for you. How could you get this old and be so clueless?
HK: (look naively shock and taken aback as SM walked out in a huff) but…who else am I supposed to talk to? Certainly not Song Yi!
SM driving in her car with full on anger, still couldn’t believe what just happened. Still seething she called YJ.
SM: Yoon Jae? Yeah…no, I need more than a ride this time. Take me out. Where? It doesn’t matter where…what about a night club? Take me to the most happening place that you youngster hang out at. What? (look at her phone) don’t worry about me just take me there!
Scene 14: SM And YJ Went Dancing But Got More Then They Bargain For
SM steps out her room and bump into her mother.
Mother: (gasp) what in the world happen to you? (she gave a stare down at her daughter and could barely recognize her. Her hair is a frizzy mess, she’s wearing street clothing, with holes…HOLES in it! netting and leather, dangling exaggerated jewelry…she grab her daughters’ hand, even black painted nails?…oh dear lord! Her eyes teared up…what happen to her refine SM?) honey…are you having a crisis?
SM: don’t worry mother, I’m going out so don’t wait up.
Mother: BUT…(SM rushed out the door) I should have gotten her married off (then grab out her phone and dialed) hi, yes it’s me…do you still have that number for the matchmaker?
YJ still shift uncomfortable on his bike thinking about the woman behind him. He wanted to turn back around for the hundredth time to look at her again to make sure his eyes weren’t deceiving him. Is this really SM? Is this the same woman who’s like a sister to him all his life? Just as pestering and annoying as Song Yi?…Always rubbing him the wrong way? Now, he swallowed again with a dry mouth as he thought about the leather covered chest pressing against his back, now it seems she’s rubbing him in all the right places.
They got to the club, most of people there were about his age but she didn’t seem to care. SM just went out and dance away to the loud obnoxious music. This is not YJ usual place to hangout but he had come here a few times with his friends. YJ continue drinking his drink and glancing at her dancing, she’s actually a pretty good dancer…he wondered how she could she end up being like this; certainly no one would have thought she’s capable of it. SM eyed him from across the room again and made a gesture with her head for him to join her, he grin and shook his head yet again. Just looking at her from a distance made his inside blush he can’t imagine being any closer to her.
SM: (ran over to YJ and order another drink…she laughs) this is great, I never felt so free and alive. Why are you here for if you’re not going to dance with me? (She down the drink)
YJ: I think you have enough to drink, I don’t want to have to carry you out.
SM: aishhhh, you’re as fun as a log. Tell you what, dance with me this last song and we can leave. Hm? Hm? (She made a cute imploring face at him)
YJ: (blush and shook his head) I don’t dance.
SM: well I don’t either, but it’s not all that bad once you start, it’s quite fun….c’mon…C’MON!!!
YJ: (close his eyes and grin back at her puppy eyes antics) just this one song and then we’re leaving ok?
SM: (straighten up with an exaggerated salute and a wide, somewhat drunk grin) yes sir!
YJ awkwardly stood on the dance floor moving back and forth as SM move all around him. Her hips, her hands, her chest, her groin…everything is rubbing up against him. He’s breaking out in a sweat even though he hadn’t moved all that much. YJ is praying for the song to be over but it seems like the seconds ticked by endlessly. Finally when the song is coming to an end, SM lean in towards him and put her arms around his neck.
SM: you don’t look so bad up close Yoon Jae…actually, you look quite handsome.
YJ: (glance around the room uncomfortably, anywhere but at her) you’re just drunk.
SM: hmmm…(laughs) you might be right, (she lean in closer) have your eyes always been this beautiful? (YJ cough)
YJ: let’s go, the song is over.
–outside the club–
YJ half supported SM as she stumble around. They walk for about half a block when SM spotted something of interest.
SM: ahhaw, look at that! (she pointed to a shop and skip over there, YJ have no choice but to follow her) did you know I always wanted one?
YJ: (looks up at the tattoo parlor) what a tattoo? I somehow doubt that.
SM: no, no it’s true! Shhhh! It’s a deep dark secret of mine, no one knows it, not even your sister.
YJ: there’s a lot of things about you that people don’t know about huh? Where do you stash it all?
SM: hmmm…it’s true. There’s some things that I don’t even know about myself until now…like how much I enjoy being around you, I never felt more at ease with anyone before.
YJ: (sarcastic tone) what? Not even Hwi Kyung?
SM: WHAT? Especially NOT Hwi Kyung!…Do you think maybe we could hang out more?
YJ: (shift from one leg to another) I don’t think that’s a good idea.
SM: you’re probably right. And that dratted person is probable right too…no one wants to be close to me…no one wants to be my lover, I’ll probably die an old maid (her eyes tear up even as she flashes him a wide smile).
YJ: (pull her closer, put a hand on her face and rubs gently) I’m sure he’s very wrong and regret what he said.
SM: (stares at him intensely then laughs and broke out from his embrace) maybe…let’s go in.
YJ: what? In there? No! Why?
–3 hours later–
SM rolls over on top of YJ, her silk nigh gown feels cool on his skin. She leans in to whisper something in his ears as his face blush bright red. She took his hand and guide it around her waist as her lips came down to kiss his chin, then his neck and just as she was about to lean down towards his lips…
Voice: hey! Wake up!
YJ: (startled awake and look into the eyes of a stranger then realize where he’s at and got up from the couch) where is she? (the woman cock her head to where SM is at laying fast asleep).
–back at SM’s house–
SM woke up the next morning in her bed with a pounding headache. Her mother sat by her bedside waiting on her. She groaned…not exactly the face she wanted to see this early morning.
Mother: why were you with that boy Yoon Jae and coming home so late? Drunk at that too! If he was any other man you would have been taken advantage of! What if the press gets news of this? Are you going to be that reckless now that we’ve come this far?
SM: can you leave? I have a headache.
Mother: here, drink this…(get up to leave) don’t think you’re getting off this easy, we’re going to talk more on this later. (SM just put a pillow over her face and groaned)
SM came out of the shower, still feeling a little groggy but a bit better. She feels achy all over too and moans. She remembers tid bits of her and YJ’s adventure yesterday and smiled to herself. As SM comb her hair the fog clears from the mirror and something caught her eye. She rubs the mirror to completely clear it. Then look closer afraid of what it might be. She touch at it gingerly and look down at her chest. Then realizing what it is, tried rubbing it off frantically but it hurts terribly. It’s now angry red, still puffy with a little blood…and even though she could only see it upside down and the backward mirror reflection of it, there was no mistaken what the permanent tattoo said.
[camera showing SM’s mother reading the papers when she heard SM scream loudly from the bathroom. She immediately stood up and run towards the bathroom]
Scene 18: 3rd Year In Alternate World Continue – SY Met MJ For The 3rd Time
Male worker: I’m sorry he’s not in.
SY: is he ever going to be here? (the man just shrug at her) thanks anyway (she walk away dejectedly)
Male worker shook his head. The director walks by and looks at SY’s disappearing form.
Director: it’s her again?
Male worker: yep. Twice a week, every week for the last two years…never fails to show up.
Director: did you mention this to Kisohn?
Male worker: yep, many times, he kept telling me to say the same thing weather he’s here or not.
Director: well, it’s not our business. He looked in her direction again and walks into his office.
From afar another pair of eyes also looks at SY’s direction. MJ felt terrible every time she comes looking for him but there’s nothing he could do but ignore her. If they meet frequently, it wouldn’t be good for both of them. But MJ followed her today…something about her posture and expression seems a little off to him.
SY walks aimlessly not know where to go or what to do. She bumps into people or people bumps into her it doesn’t seem to matter as she couldn’t really hear what they say, she kept on walking. There was suddenly a lot of honking noises which woke her from the stupor she’s in.
Cab driver: lady do you have a death wish or something? Do it somewhere else! I have a family to feed I don’t want to go to jail just yet.
SY: (walks up to him) I’m terribly sorry…can you give me a ride?
Cab driver: erhmm…ok, well get on then.
SY: thank you.
Cab driver: where to?
SY: can you just drive to somewhere that’s quiet with a good scenic view?
–arriving at destination—
SY: (gave all her money to the driver) keep the change.
Driver: this is more than I need, are you sure?
SY: yes, thank you.
Driver: ok here’s my card, call that number when you’re ready and need a cab.
SY: (she took the card) thanks again (as he drove off, SY let the card flew away with the wind. She saw the bridge and walk briskly towards it)
MJ stood afar not knowing what SY is doing here all by herself. She stands on a bridge seeming to be deep in thoughts. Without any warning he saw her dive into the water. At first he froze, couldn’t believe what he just saw and then his brain started panicking and he teleported himself under the water forgetting that once fully submerge he have no powers to guide him except that he could hold his breath for an extraordinary amount of time.
MJ look around the water for a sign of her but he couldn’t see anything. His heart is doubling over with fear, he didn’t realize how deep the water is and dive frantically further. Then he spotted her lifeless form drifting downward and push himself as fast as he could to her side, he grab her from behind but she shook him off which gave him a little shock. Angry, he pulled at her again, and again she fought him off. He look up, realizing it’s a long way to break the surface and that she might not make it if this continues. Making up his mind, he swirl her around to face him and before their eyes even reach each other, his lips closed around her. He exchanges his breath into her mouth as his arms grab hold of her, pushing them both upward.
What feels like an eternity to him might have only been mere seconds before he realize that her lips is moving under his in a kiss. When their tongues accidentally touch he felt a jolt of lighting slam into his chest. Everything seems to move in super slow motion; her hair drifting in a tangle around them, the quite hum of the water, the small particles of light moving upward with them. MJ didn’t realize until they broke the water that he was passionately kissing her back. When he did, he pulled back abruptly but SY still has her eyes close as she lean in towards him instinctively. He teleported them out of the water quickly and onto a nearby grassy knoll.
SY opens her eyes still in a daze and look into the turbulence face of Kisohn. He angrily shook her, the weather around them seems to mirror his mood. The clouds were almost pitch black with intensity, the wind blew fiercely as the sheets of rain slam down on them.
MJ: (screaming at her) DON’T YOU EVER! EVER DO SOMETHING SO STUPID LIKE THIS AGAIN! DO YOU HEAR ME?! (then contradicting his anger by pulling her into a tight hug. He kept hugging her tighter and tighter she almost couldn’t breathe)
SY didn’t respond as she’s still shock from not only seeing him again, finally, after so long and so much longing…then sharing what had to be the most magical kiss anyone could ever experience in their life time, she felt its impact throughout every particles of her being. But beside that, for the first time she had also witness him using powers she didn’t even know existed, which confuses her even more. It’s true that she had suspected something fishy when he consistently able to save her but she hadn’t expected it to be this bizarre.
SY: (when MJ finally realizes how close he’s holding her, he pulled back away while she calmly looks up at him) Kisohn, can you please explain everything to me now?
