On a door glass we see reflected a large car on fire (crashed after a truck? a mech?). Flames lazily feast the black burnt remains of the saloon. We realize that the smudge in the background conforms to the pillars of a parking. But we are no more in front of a reflection, it is a real view (since everything is flipped horizontally now). There has been some serious incident over there for sure. The melted shape of the vehicle is no more recognizable. Part of the ceiling has even collapsed onto it because of the heat diffusion.


A silhouette is slowly moving away from the crash site. At a first glance it is only a blurred vision, but if we focus our attention we see there it is a person standing, or… dragging another one. The former is woman, the latter is who we suppose to be the driver. He is badly injured. They take cover after a pillar. There are two persons around. The woman probably performed the same action with all the three passengers. Finally, she kneels near the man she has just rescued as he holds his mangled leg. He’s leaning on the floor, the woman tries to stop all his bleeding with a jacket.

KONOKO (we do not see her face yet)
Definitely, you are not going to die, John
JOHN (whispering)
My staff?
KONOKO
Fine. I’d say --
JOHN
You were supposed to hate me, Ms. Hasegawa.
KONOKO
Will you do me a favor, instead?
JOHN
You already owe me one... (gasps)
KONOKO
Spare your parlor tricks, and tell me where it hurts you. (as she undoes the first knot and she ties up again the jacket around his leg, this time more tightly.)
JOHN
TCTF will not come down here. You will have no justice. Would you leave me without?
KONOKO
I thought you were similar to my father.
(panting)
I thought you were it ( it??? geyser) to die.
Pause
But Mr. Grieve persuaded me you are something more.
JOHN (amazed)
who...
(he reflects, then closes his eyes: after a while he realizes)
There is a thing I wish to say, Mai.
KONOKO
What, John?
JOHN
Next time, I’d like to see you smile.
KONOKO (cheers up? Does only John see her face? Or can we too from our position?)
Does she answer "You already made me do so."?
Pause
JOHN
Where are you going next?
KONOKO
I am seeking no place. Indeed there’s nothing left for me.
V.O.
"maybe another story will let me in"
KONOKO stands up, and walks away. There is more people coming in (a couple of mercs and civil personnel), but they seem to ignore her, they are concerned with JOHN BLACKWATER and the remaining wounded ones. A staff member has probably called them for help with a comlink.
We take the view on Konoko’s face as she leaves the compound.
V.O.
Every time I look at my reflection, I see in [it] a hundred women I could have become. And I wonder which version you may love instead of me.
I see my face,

Same view of Konoko, but the background has changed : it is an open space, a wasteland. She wears rags.

I look at my shoulders,
my chest, my breast.
I do find nothing worth now for you.
Do I like myself?
I noticed every scar on me. My body can heal my wounds but cannot conceal their lines.
Is it really all I got from you?
Zoom into her right eye: as it suddenly blinks, the camera movement is reverted
