...a bed of leaves. The flame flickers and twirls as it slowly consumes the leaf it was born on.

CINDERS provided by the flame are lifted by air and deposited a couple feet away. The cinders RADIATE with heat and kindle on another leaf.

A couple feet away from the two small fires, a THIRD FLAME sets alight. The THREE FIRE DOTS are of equal distance from each other, appearing to form a equilateral triangle.

The camera zooms out from an aerial view of the the fire dots. HEAVY BREATHING fades in.

It's much more exciting when I'm here.

What can I say, you turn me on.

I'm trying to mitigate your intake, junior. Don't want to interrupt the growth of your soon-to-be massive biceps.

TOMA

Eat pure ass.

Want to talk to me about stuff?

TOMA

That look is making my asshole pucker in disgust

SETSUKO

I mean, that happens to me everytime I try to talk to you. What is this the third time I've tried to-

DrewDiPoto - a year ago

TOMA

-Just please, leave the subject be for now.

DrewDiPoto - a year ago

SETSUKO

Talking is more productive than punching yourself and holding yourself accountable for something like-

DrewDiPoto - a year ago

TOMA

-Please! I get it! I just want something else to think about! Do you know how many people have came to ask me questions?! My parents, grandparents, cousins, cops and even my fucking professors! Fuck off the subject!

DrewDiPoto - a year ago

SETSUKO goes silent. TOMA is upset, but clearly holding his emotions back.

TOMA (CONT'D)

Sorry. It was a bad day.

What, is your asshole still puckering? Was I really that bad, junior?

TOMA takes a sip from his beer.

DrewDiPoto - a year ago

TOMA (CONT'D)

You make me feel like a head case. And you know what, I kinda like that. Something I can say is unique about me. Would you mind playing me a violin while I loathe in my issues?

DrewDiPoto - a year ago 3 versions.

They both chuckle and take quick sips from their beers.

How do they update those English books? That's literally the the twenty-seventh edition of that textbook series.
