Scene 2: Present Time Alternate World, altSY’s Adjusted Life
[camera on a big photo hanging on the wall of MJ and SY in front of a piano smiling. MJ suddenly teleport in front of it as a bullet hit him on the shoulder, landing him roughly on the floor]
SY: (rush over to him, her voice in a panic) Kisohn? Is it really you? Why are you back?!
MJ: I’m here to save you (he looks at his bloody shoulder) I’m not doing such a good job so far.
SY: why Kisohn? Did I not tell you to forget about me?! You’re not supposed to be here! (she hug his body to shield him and whisper desperately in his ears) leave NOW! Hurry!
MJ: (pull her back as he look at the sticky blood dripping from her head, down to the side of her face and her dress torn at the shoulder and side hem. He was so livid he didn’t even feel the pain on his shoulder anymore as he gently pushes her aside to stand up) I’m not leaving without the guarantee of your safety.
48 HOURS EARLIER
SY: (smile down at the old woman) grandma let me help you take that home.
Old lady: thank you child…my arthritis is acting up again (SY pack all the loads of groceries into her bicycle basket as she walk the bike alongside the old woman) if you weren’t married I would have send my grandson to ask for your hand.
SY: (laughs) your oldest grandson is twenty. (The old lady shrug)
Old lady: age is just a number (she nudge and wink at SY) when will we have the pleasure of meeting your husband? It’s been almost two years, aren’t you lonely without him?
SY: awh (she confirm with a smile), but I have him everywhere at home so it doesn’t feel too lonely.
Old lady: still, you’re at the peak of your years and shouldn’t remain alone like that, what about kids? A man’s career should be second to his wife and family.
SY: it’s ok I don’t mind (she change the subject) when are you going to make that delicious…(their conversation fade out)
SY: (preparing some food on the table, then look at the life size pillow doll sitting on the chair with a smiling picture of MJ) I know these are not your favorite dishes but we have special guests coming tonight…awww, don’t pout love, I’ll make it up to you later aw? aw? (She blew him a kiss when she heard the knocking) I’m coming! (SY open up the door and threw herself in SM’s arms as the two hug each other tightly) I missed you! It’s only been a few months not seeing each other but I missed you dearly.
SM: then you should move back home with us already. Why keep hiding yourself here? (She pull out and look at SY) these days there’s rarely any talk about you or Hwi Kyung anymore so please come home.
SY: (close the door and turn away) I told you already the reason why. Where’s Yoon Jai? He’s not coming with you this time?
SM: no…he’s getting ready for his entrance exam…again.
SY: hmm, still want to be a professor huh?
SM: (laughs) you know how stubborn he is.
SY: yes…that’s why you love him (SM shrug and smile). Let’s have dinner, you must be hungry and exhausted. Just wait until you see what I made for you!
–a while later–
SM ate as she shifts uncomfortably from side to side. Her eyes dart back and forth from SY to the life size doll with Kisohn picture posted on the head, sitting directly across from her.
SY: you think I’m crazy.
SM: (put down her chopsticks and grab SY’s hand) no, no I don’t think that. It’s just…I worry about you. I mean just look at this place! Nothing has changed a bit. Your walls are still filled with pictures of you and him together, you still have this doll at your dining table, and that giant piano is still taking all the space in your living room. Song Yi-ah don’t you think you should start getting rid of some of the stuff and I don’t know, try and move on? It’s been almost 2 years.
SM: I know that. I know he’s not coming back and I should move on with my life. But I don’t want to, I don’t think I’m even capable of that. Without all this (she look around the house) I wouldn’t know how to cope. To everyone else it might sound crazy that I talk to him every morning, every night, and at every meals but it’s what kept me sane. I think…no, I know he probably married by now and thinking up of how we live our lives together, it makes me happy.
SM: But that’s his own life now, you still have yours to live. I’m not saying I can fully understand or accept everything you told me but…if it’s true then he’s married now to another you, he had moved on. It may be you there but it’s not the you here. I don’t want my Song Yi to just survive…I want you to live this life as your own. I feel so bad that you’re just…wasting it away on a few short memories when he’s happily married elsewhere. It makes me really angry.
SY: As I told my mother and father countless times before…know you all care and worry about me but believe me, I’m much happier living like this then with anyone else or any other way. This feels real to me. More real than when I was actually married to Hwi Kyung (she look down and continue eating as she finish her thoughts) sometimes, all it takes is a few short memories to last for a whole lifetime. Some people can live their entire life and never experience such beautiful memories as I have…I’m very blessed (she sniffle and wipe her nose then continue eating)
SM didn’t know what else to say to that so she just smile sadly and continue eating.
Not long after SM left there was a knock at the door.
SY: (opens the door and took a step back in surprise) Oppa…how did you find me?
JK: I followed SeMi. I’ve been debating for months and months if I should search you out or continue waiting for you to come back or call me. But you never did…so here I am.
SY: I’m sorry I left so abruptly Oppa but since me and Hwi Kyung split up…I just didn’t think it was appropriate to keep seeing you. Hwi Kyung is your brother and I’m your friend…I know how hard it can be for you to be in the middle. Please understand my decision.
JK: should we continue talking by the door or are you going to let me in? (SY hesitated and he walked in, then turns around angrily) what is this?
SY: that’s…why I didn’t want to invite you in. (sigh) This is Kisohn (she point out to one of the picture) you remember the person I mention to you before right? This is the man I love. Look, I’m really sorry about your brother…
JK: where is he? (SY gave him a confused look) this Kisohn, where is he?
SY: not here (she softly whisper)
JK: I’ll wait. I want to meet him face to face.
SY: I don’t think that’s possible. He’s not here as in he’s never coming back (she didn’t think it was possible but JK looks even more livid)
JK: THEN WHY ARE YOU HERE ALL BY YOURSELF WITH THESE (he gesture to all the pictures surrounding her) …WHEN THIS MAN CLEARLY DOESNT EVEN WANT YOU!
SY: Oppa, this is not your problem to be concern about and you don’t know the whole story behind all of this.
JK: (push her roughly against the wall) then make me understand Song Yi! Why do you choose my brother to marry? You should have listened to me! he wasn’t the one for you. I told you that before. And now…now this? This…this guy was never in your life…I WAS THE ONE IN YOUR LIFE! I was there right alongside with you watching you grew up! WHY? Why is it NOT ME?? Why!??! (His grip on her shoulder tighten and SY flinch)
SY: (her voice shook as she tried to stay calm, this is a side of him she’d never witness before) Oppa…you’re hurting me.
JK: (doesn’t seem to hear her) I loved you, you know that?! I loved you for almost half my life!
SY: (taken aback and shock) I’m sorry Oppa, I always thought of you as my own older brother but nothing more. I didn’t know…and for that I’m sorry but I don’t…I can’t ever love you that way.
JK: (he shook her) DON’T SAY THAT! DON’T EVER SAY THAT! (he leaned his body in closer to her as he tried to kiss her lips but she moved her head, he angle after her head in the other direction but she just move the other way while trying to push him out. He kept forcefully trying to kiss her and she finally gave one hard push, he stagger back a bit and was about to close in on her again when she slap him hard across the face. It seem to have woken him from his anger as he stood rooted to the floor looking down).
SY: (still shaking from fury and fear as she ground out) our friendship and relation ends as of right now. Please don’t ever come back here again.
JK: (panic) I’m sorry Song Yi, I didn’t mean that. I promise it won’t happen again.
SY: I’m sorry Jae Kyung Oppa but it’s for your own good as well. It will just get awkward between us. Please, just leave.
There wasn’t anything else he could say so JK storm out the door and left. SY close and lock the door. Only then did her legs buckle and gave out as she slid down the door still in shock.
Scene 5: MJ Enlighten Conversation with JSH
MJ: (look at the girl up and down) You’re….you can’t be, my daughter’s not even born yet!
JSH: may I come in?
MJ: (looks conflicted but let her in, still continue looking at her in puzzlement) how is this even possible?
JSH: you don’t look too good father. And look at this place. (she blink her eyes and everything in the background rewinds back in time before MJ came back as both her and MJ stood unmoved from the present time looking on as the background righted itself into its place)
JSH: the same way you stop time father…just more advanced. I can manipulate time in layers.
MJ: I need to sit down (he went backward and sat on the pristine couch) am I dreaming?
JSH: (laughs) no father (she came closer to him and touch both his hands) can you feel that? I’m real. I told you not to worry too much even if mother kicked you out but you didn’t listen to me.
MJ: (gingerly touch her face) I don’t know what to say…I don’t know how to feel seeing you so…grown up when you’re not even born yet. You’re so beautiful…just like your mother.
JSH: I’m sorry I had to make my appearance now, and it’s confusing for you but there was no other way.
MJ: wait..if you are from the future…then you can tell me, right? Our family will be ok right? Your mother…she will forgive me right?
JSH: that is why I’m here. All of it will depend on you and mother. But right now you need to go save her.
MJ: save her? (He stood up abruptly) why? What happen I was just with her…
JSH: no…I’m not talking about mother here, I’m talking about the one in the other world.
MJ: (sat back down in frustration) Jin Sunhee-ah…she’s not your mother. Your mother is here. Besides, I don’t belong there and I don’t want to ever come back. It’s best if we just forget about it. Is it not true that your birth will obliterate the other world? So it is pointless, I don’t want to leave your mother. That other world will take care of itself.
JSH: is that what you think?…what you believe father? Why do you think you see her at night and as the time is approaching closer she’s manifesting into your reality? It is not her that’s haunting you. It’s your own awareness and conscience and it’s getting stronger and stronger. You know what you have to do.
MJ: no…it can’t be, the two world are moving closer that’s why she’s able to….to communicate with me. You can go save her! But I can’t leave your mother at a time like this, I can’t!
JSH: (shook her head) no father. There is no one that’s connected between the two worlds but you. No one can go there and no one there can come here, not even myself. You’re the only one capable of it. She needs you.
MJ: I need you! I need your mother! I need to be here when you’re born…to be the first person to look at your face. There’s a chance that won’t happen if I leave…I can’t take that chance.
JSH: father (she held his hands gently and look up at him)…your love for us is vast and I love you very much for that but don’t hide behind your fear…your fear will destroy us. I know you are afraid that mother would not forgive you if you leave now but if you don’t leave…do you think you can live in peace with us, knowing what you know about mother in the other world and what happen to her? It will destroy you…slowly but surely. And that will destroy us all.
MJ eyes became teary as he look up at the ceiling trying to control his conflict.
JSH: I can’t help you further; the decision is all up to you. I’m here to just remind you this: have more faith in mother. I will help you with all that I can but you need to let go of your fear and have faith in her love. If you can’t do that then all will be lost.
Scene 9: SY Conversation with HK and Ahnya
SY woke up the next morning. She turns over and there was her note, untouched on MJ’s side of the bed. She picked up the note, look at it for a few minutes then took it and pressed it to her chest, crying into her pillow.
After a bit longer SY decide to get up out of bed to go to the playground park, hoping she might see that little girl, Sunny, again. She wants to see her smile…somehow seeing her smile seems to take all her worries away.
SY walk quietly around the corner then stop short as she heard voices in the living room, she went back behind the wall listening.
SY’s mother: …and you think this is my fault how? She gets that stubbornness from you!
SY’s father: yeah but she’s been living with you not me so that harsh unforgiving nature she learned it from you. (SY’s mother sneer at her husband)
HK: mother, father…(bow) please let’s not argue about this. I think SY is right in how she react to MJ…I mean how could he do this to her? If only he wasn’t an alien I’d…(looks embarrass) well, I just know if it was me I would never betray SY’s trust like that.
SY’s mother: (pat HK hand) dear, that’s sweet to say but you’re not married yet. Those who’s not married thinks that marriage is the end all…the happily ever after. But actually it’s just the beginning if a very tough journey (she glance pointedly at her husband) There are much worse things that can happen then what Do Min Joon-shi did in the past. Not to say that he’s faultless and I would give him a beating if I see him. Still, Song Yi is taking it a bit to the extreme here, especially now when she needs her husband by her side the most.
SY’s father: but can you fault her? She loves him too much. They say the more you love the harder you fall…
SY: (walked out from her corner making sure they heard her) what are you guys doing here?
SY’s mother: ahhh you’re up. Hwi Kyun’s been waiting for you for over an hour.
HK: (smile) it’s nothing…you seem to need the rest, I can wait.
SY: aren’t you supposed to still be on your trip? What are you doing here?
SY’s father: he’s worried about you…we all are sweetie.
SY’s mother: while he’s waiting we fill him in on what’s been happening.
SY: I see.
SY’s mother: (looks at her husband) well, we better get going to the market for some food. I’ll be cooking for tonight, (turn to look at HK) stay for dinner ok? (He bow his head in answer. Then she took her husband’s hand and walk them both out the door)
HK: so…how are you?
SY: surviving. Look, I didn’t mean to disrupt your trip, you shouldn’t come home early just for my sake.
HK: you may be married but you’re still my best friend.
SY: (smile at him) thanks. You want a drink? I’m thirsty (she gets up but he stop her)
HK: let me, you need your rest.
SY: (pulled out of his hands) I’m not an invalid, just pregnant. Besides, I’ve been lounging about in bed all day, I could use some exercise. (SY walked to the fridge with two glasses, then suddenly look thoughtful for a moment. She came back to HK and placed the two glasses on the table.
HK: ya, Song Yi what’s the meaning of this? (He stares at the two glasses, one water and the other ice)
SY: what do you prefer more? water or ice?
HK: why are we talking about this? Don’t you want to discuss more important matters? Like what should be done about Min Joon and your marriage? I really want to punch his face in, tell me…can I do that? I will do it if you want me to.
SY: this is important…is ice better then water? Or water better? (she kept looking at it perplex)
HK: (felt impatience, took the glass of ice and pour it into the glass of water) why can’t it be both? (He hand her the glass) now it’s nice and cold.
SY: you can’t do that! You can’t just mix them together like that!
HK: why not? I just did. And isn’t it better this way? You can have both. Are you going to drink it? (She just stare at it repulsively) no? (He shrug and drank the content)
SY: ughhh you men are all the same! Go home Hwi Kyung.
HK: but…we haven’t talk about your issue yet!
SY: we just did!
HK: we did?
Ahnya: (appeared out of the blue) yes Hwi Kyung I think it’s time you leave.
HK: Ahnya!…(he stood up in surprise and about to walk over to her but stop short) we need to talk…(SY sneer at him for switching side so fast)
Ahnya: I’m not here to talk to you Hwi Kyung. I’m here to talk to Song Yi.
SY: (to Ahnya) where have you been? Hwi Kyung went on a trip and you suddenly disappear now he’s back and you’re back too…are you guys synchronizing with each other now? (Smile sarcastically then thought to herself then her eyes became round with shock and stare from one silent person to the other) you! (pointing at HK) you! (pointing at Ahnya) you guys…(pointing back and forth)
HK: wow, erhmmhem look at the time! I’ve been here longer then I thought. Song Yi, looks like you’re not ready to discuss the issue yet. Let me know when you’re ready, I have some important work matters I have to attend to, tell mother sorry for me I can’t stay for dinner. (He gave a look at Ahnya then took his jacket and bolted out the door)
SY: (turn over to Ahnya) well, that got rid of him pretty fast didn’t it? Care to enlighten me about your relationship with him?
Ahnya: why? It’s my private matter. I’m here to discuss with you about Min Joon and what’s been going on.
SY: why? It’s my private matter. (She threw back at Ahnya)
Ahnya: is it? Private? As far as I know, every member of your family knows and so does all your friends.
SY: that’s right. And you’re neither one of those so my affairs don’t concern you.
Ahnya: I’m not concern about your affairs, I’m concern about Kisohn’s.
SY: rightttt…how could I forget he’s your life partner isn’t it?….my husband’s your life partner and now my best friend…your what? Lover? You aliens really know how to two time really well.
Ahnya: careful with your words and actions Song Yi…you’re walking the fine line of becoming an embitter person.
SY: and who’s fault would that be?!
SY: ME?! did you even realize what just happen here? That Min Joon lied to me? Had an affair with someone else? Broke our trust and bond of marriage? (Her tears start falling again) broke my heart at this crucial moment when we were supposed to be happy and excited about the birth of our baby? How do I not feel bitter and angry? How is it MY fault?
Ahnya: you always have a choice in everything…even in how you feel.
SY: you’re telling me about feelings? You? The alien species that doesn’t believe in family and relationship?
Ahnya: what? You don’t think we can feel deeply like you do? Then why did you marry Min Joon if that’s how you really feel? We are not robots….yes, it’s true that we live in a society that doesn’t believe in deep feelings and emotions. We do not live to create bonds but to be a student of the universe. That doesn’t mean we are incapable of such emotions…if anything our feelings are magnified even more when we choose to open ourselves to it. Min Joon loves you more than anything on this earth, more than anything in this universe…as his wife you should know that.
SY: so you’re here to defend him and his actions.
Ahnya: no, I’m here to enlighten you about his actions. Did you once stop thinking about yourself and thought instead of Kisohn? About what he have to struggle with? (stare at SY’s silent face) I didn’t think so. Did you once wonder what it was like for the other Song Yi? What happen to her? How she is when he left her? (SY remain silent) I didn’t think so either. The people of this earth preach about love, that if you love someone fully, you give yourself to them unconditionally. It’s not you that you first worried about, it’s them and their wellbeing. Putting that person first before your own needs and wants, that’s the purity of love. Your love is still steep in selfishness.
SY: so you’re saying I should just roll over and let Min Joon do whatever he pleases? That’s not what I imagine a relationship is about.
Ahnya: no, that’s not what I’m saying. I guess you have to figure that out for yourself (turn to walk away but stop and turn her head slightly to SY) this is a concept that the other Song Yi grasp very well, so I will continue my hope that you’re not completely hopeless (she disappear)
SY: Ahnya! Wait! You knew about the other Song Yi? You knew? (SY threw the couch pillow to the area where Ahnya was just standing at, then look to the side perplex, letting out a frustrated sigh as she rubs her temple)
Scene 11: The Departure of MJ
MJ teleported in front of his house, as he stood outside in the dark, silent night looking up to the window of his wife’s bedroom. He stood there for a long time.
[camera pan in scenes of MJ looking up at the window in different angles as he narrates in his head: Song Yi-ah, I’m taking a leap of faith. I’m still afraid of losing you, and I’m not sure if I’ll ever shake that feeling completely, but I will put it aside and do what I know is right in my heart. I will go on believing that whatever may happen from now on, we will get through this together. I love you…my wife (He turns away to leave but look back at her window) I will be back before you know it…wait for me]
–in the alternate world–
SY lay in the grass hugging the doll closer to her. She looks up at the night sky.
SY: do you think maybe one day you can take me to your home? Awh, I want to meet your family. What? why not? You don’t think they will accept me?….cha….Kisohn, you underestimate my charm. I got you to acknowledge me didn’t I? It only took three years but I did it right? (She hugs the doll tighter and point to an unknown star) let’s go there for our next anniversary. It’s time you show me some of that alien power of yours. (she pouts at the pillow) keep that up and you’ll be sleeping on the couch tonight…at least humor me and say yes.
–in the normal world–
SY: yes! I said yes! So stop nagging me Yoon Jai! (she close her bedroom door and sat on her bed rubbing the belly) why did my doctor have to call at a time like this? I just finish telling Min Joon I didn’t want to see him not more than 2 days ago. Aishhhhh! This is so embarrassing. Why can’t I go to my checkup without the father? Why? Why? (She held on to the phone, then threw it on the bed, then picking it back up) tsk, it can’t be helped. (dialing MJ’s number but no one picked up. She opens her door) Yoon Jai! You know where my husband is? Can you drive me there?
–on the drive to the honeymoon house–
YJ: so does this mean you’ll forgive Min Joon?
SY: we’re just simply going to the doctor together. I said nothing about forgiving him (she plays with the hem on her skirt nervously) are we there yet?
–at the honeymoon house–
MJ: did you have a good sleep last night?
JSH: I don’t have a problem sleeping, how about you father? You look much better this morning.
MJ: surprisingly, it’s the best night rest I had in a long while. I’m glad you decided to stay for the night. I’m not sure if it’s because you’re here with me or…that I made my peace with my decision. (He walked out the door first and turn around to look at his daughter standing by the door frame as the morning light shine on her. He reaches out to lightly pinch her cheeks) don’t grow up too fast darling, wait for me.
JSH: (shifted her eyes and look down at the slight slope below and saw SY and YJ in the car looking at them. She moved in closer to MJ and gave him a tight hug) I love you father and remember what I tell you…save her no matter what it takes.
MJ was so surprise he didn’t know whether to hug her back or not. Then settle for patting her back and rubbing her head.
SY: let’s go Yoon Jai
YJ: but we just got here…maybe, it’s not what you think…we should go and…
SY: I’m not in the mood to face another of his women. Let’s go.
YJ: but…(SY gave him the death stare so he turns the car back around and drove off scratching his head and mumble under his breath) why Min Joon why at this crucial moment? Aishhh! (He hit the steering wheel in frustration).
As MJ walked back in the house JSH disappear and reappear below the slope where the car was just at moments ago. She looks at the road and at the car driving further and further away, then disappear.
Scene 14: MJ Request A Favor From Ahnya
Ahnya: So this is where you’ve been.
MJ: why are you looking for me?
Ahnya: I want to see how you are doing, things doesn’t look too good for you at home. Though I’m not expecting you to look half as good as you do now. You don’t look very distress to me.
MJ: I was. But I have since made peace with the situation.
Ahnya: (raise her eyebrow at him in disbelieve) is that so.
MJ: you actually came at the right moment; I have a favor to ask you. I’m leaving to the other world to save Song Yi….and I need you to promise me you’ll take care of my wife here until I come back.
Ahnya: you can’t be serious? I just tried my best to help you out with your wife and if she was swayed just a little…all of that will be gone the moment you leave! Do you want to go back to your wife or not? She’ll never forgive you if you leave now, you have to know that! Or…are you not planning on telling her?
MJ: just keep close to her. If and when she ask about me or to see me, if I’m not back yet you can tell her the truth. I’m not going to lie to her any more. I’ll take whatever consequences will come with it…but I will continue to have faith in her, in us.
Ahnya: I can’t let you do this Kisohn. You’re risking your marriage, your family, your life even…for Song Yi in another world that…would disappear soon anyways! Why would you do that? Is your wife and baby less important than her?
MJ: I have to go…I don’t expect you or anyone to understand my decision. But it’s because I love my wife and Jinny that I’m doing this. (he let his mind and body relax and follow the pull of the other world as everything black out and he disappear)
Ahnya: what? Kisohn! Kisohn! Who’s Jinny? Kisohn!! Min Joonnnnn! Come back!! (she kept yelling at the silent room with no answer back)
Scene 17: The Struggle Between JK, SY, and MJ
Song Yi is sleeping in her room when she heard a loud bang. She immediately got up and came out of the room then stop short in complete horror. Oppa Jae Kyung is standing by her busted front door with a gun in one hand and big container of gasoline on the other.
SY: oh my god what are you doing? (He put the bottle down and stumbles towards her, she baked away looking around for any weapons around in case she needs it but couldn’t find anything of use. He stop within a few feet if her and sway to and fro, his voice slurred)
JK: I’m here to save you. No need to thank me. (He turns to the side and shot a picture of MJ and her as it come crashing to the floor)
SY: oh my god…you’re mad! Stop it! Stop it! (She ran towards the broken pictures on the floor, she turns towards him and yelled) GET OUT OF MY HOU…(she stop mid-sentence as she realize he’s pouring gasoline on her piano and furniture. She ran towards him) WHAT ARE YOU DOING? STOP IT!! Stop it please! (she cried) this is my home! (She yank at his arm but he push her roughly away as she fell, hitting her head on the side of the table. Her vision turn black and blurry, she shook her head a few times and felt something sticky run down the side of her face. As the image start to sharpen she saw JK drunk face close to hers)
JK: are you ok? Did I hurt you? You shouldn’t make me hurt you like that. (she tried to scoot away from him but he’s holding tight onto her shoulder. SY pulled away from him hard and ripped the shoulder of her nightgown dress. She tripped and fell down as he pulled on the helm of her dress. SY kicked his fingers with her other leg. He pulled her to him as she tried to pull away from the other direction. Her hem torn and a piece of the fabric are now in his hand. He threw it away and point the gun at another picture). WHY DID YOU MAKE ME ANGRY LIKE THIS! (He shot another frame of MJ as it fell down) I will destroy this place…then you will come home with me!
SY: I’m not going anywhere with you! (she screamed back at him)
JK aim his gun at another picture by the far end of the wall. He shot it as a man appeared out of nowhere and fell down.
–present time in alternate world–
MJ: (gently push SY aside) I’m not leaving without the guarantee of your safety (he look at JK). You again. You’re trouble everywhere you live.
JK: (shook his head to clear his drunkenness and stagger a bit closer. He squint his eyes) So you’re the bastard! (He aim his gun again at MJ and shoot. MJ froze time but he couldn’t do it completely, weakened from the loss of blood, as the bullet continue moving in slow motion towards them)
MJ quickly move SY out of harm’s way just as time resume again and the bullet hit the wall. JK look momentarily confused as MJ jump on him to wrestle the gun out of his hand. It landed to the far corner. JK regain his momentum, saw MJ’s injured shoulder and attack it with force, pressing his elbow into it.
MJ screamed in agony as he saw the chandelier above them. He uses his last remaining power to break it as it fall down and land on JK’s back. JK stopped what he was doing, his face in shock. MJ push him out and tried to stand up. He stumbles over to SY.
MJ: are you ok?
SY: My head hurts a lot but I’ll be ok. What about you? (she touch his face and look about him checking for injuries, he smiled at her and shook his head. She hug him to her) thank god you’re ok, I was so worried…I…(her fingers felt something warm and sticky, she feel his back further and pull her hand out. His blood is all over her shaking fingers. She look down at his back, there was blood everywhere). No! No! How could this happen? (MJ fell down slowly dragging her along with him)
MJ: (look over at JK) I didn’t mean to kill him (SY look over at JK as well and saw that the middle pointed crystal centerpiece of the chandelier had pierce through JK’s back)
SY: I don’t understand…how could you get the same injury as him when it didn’t even touch you?
MJ: if he (he breathe laboriously) die, I kill him…I die with him….same way.
SY: WHAT?! No!!! NO!! (she sob and panic) that can’t happen…that can’t!
MJ: it’s the rule of the universe…no one can break it, one specie…cannot kill…another, it’s….forbidden.
SY: don’t say this Kisohn, I don’t believe you…(but her streaming tears contradict her) you’re going to be fine. There’s no such stupid rule…there can’t be! Tell me you’re lying!
MJ: if there is no such rule…the universe will be in chaos with wars. The human world would have been long invaded and conquered. (He choke momentarily as the blood pour out his mouth then his eyes started to close)
SY: (screamed at him) DON’T YOU DARE! KISOHN! DON’T YOU DARE DIE ON ME! You have to get back to your wife! Please I beg you…she’s waiting for you…
MJ: (he grip her hand tightly) my wife, I’m sorry my wife…I’m sorry Jinny, I let you down (his eyes close as tears fall out from both end)
SY: (took her hand away from MJ, she look around thinking hard then ran over to JK) you can’t die…don’t die, please don’t die! (she ripped her bottom dress and stuff the fabric to his wound then she tried to pull the chandelier away from him)
JK: (in a raspy whisper) stop, don’t do it. If you take it out I will die sooner.
SY: (stood up feeling helpless, standing between both men as their blood continue pouring out…she sobbed and screamed in agony) GOD, WHAT CAN I DO? WHAT CAN I DO?!! (She sat back down and huddle her knee to her face, crying as her whole body shook…suddenly she looked up, her teary eyes focus. She glance at the far corner and spotted the gun. SY ran over and picked up the gun, came back and stood next to JK. Her hand shook uncontrollably as she points the gun at his back.
JK: (hand came out and touch her foot) Song Yi…I love you…I’m so sorry…
SY: Oppa, I’m sorry too, please forgive me. (she closed her eyes and pulled the trigger)
A moment later SY opens her eyes and look down at the dead JK. She drops the gun, gave a horrified sob then looks over at MJ and ran to him. MJ’s eyes are shut and his body felt cold to her. She hugged him tight and rubs him up and down his back.
SY: Kisohn, my love…please wake up…stop toying with me! (tears, blood, and snot smeared and mingle on her face, her voice crack badly) you didn’t kill him…you didn’t kill him, I did…I DID! So wake up damn you! You have to wake up! (she pulled out and shook him, then slap his face but there was no response. Not knowing what else left to do she pressed her quivering lips to his, her voice low and hoarse) please don’t leave me…please don’t leave me…please don’t leave us (She held his lifeless body, rocking back and forth as the camera pan out further and further and finally fade out to black)
