ext. Cemetery

926354 - a year ago

Kubo walks up to a mossy gravestone, a flimsy, white paper-like thing in his hands. Kubo wrings his small hands, the paper-like thing making a rustling sound in the quiet woods.

Kubo shuffles his feet toward the gravestone, a nervous and scared expression filling his face. He places the paper-like thing onto the top of the weary, broken-down gravestone.

Kubo

Father. . .

Kubo pauses, unsure.

I don't know what to say, father. I don't really know what I am doing here.

The wind rustles the hair around Kubo's eye, forcing him to push it back. Kubo smiles nervously.

Kubo (CONT'D)

I hope you are okay, father, wherever you are. I wish you were here, with me. Then we could take care of mom together, and I wouldn't be alone.

Kubo sits quietly after that, waiting for the paper-like thing, the lantern, to light up, signalling that his father's ghost was there.

The lantern does not light up. Kubo's face saddens.

There is no sound but the leaves rustling in the trees. Kubo's eyes tear up, sadness ripping through him. He stands up with jerky movements. Anger is evident in his furrowed brows and narrowed eyes. Kubo grabs the lantern and smashes it to pieces under his foot.

Kubo (CONT'D)

Fine. Don't come. I don't care anyway.
