30 EXT. Paternoster Square - DAY

Anthony and Cynthia meet by the Square. Cynthia wears a white dress under a dark jacket. Itís a bit unusual for the chilly weather.

ANTHONY
Is it because youíre returning to the university for the new term?

CYNTHIA
One of the reasons.

ANTHONY
So sudden... Just like what you did 8 years ago.

CYNTHIA
Donít mention it. I donít want to talk about it again.

ANTHONY
Please stay. London is a good place to stay.

CYNTHIA
Tokyo is great too. Why donít you come over?

ANTHONY
Sure - If you ask.

Cynthia looks at Anthony. There is a moment of silence.

CYNTHIA
Nothing can happen between us now.

Anthony tries to hold her hand, but Cynthia just moves a step away.

CYNTHIA
Ah... I almost forgot...

Cynthia takes her camcorder out and gives it to Anthony. She takes off her jacket.

ANTHONY
Just like what we did before?

CYNTHIA
Yes, but it needs to be a bit closer.

Anthony takes shots of Cynthia in the white dress. In slow motion, Cynthia moves around the trees and shows a motionless face. Yet the motionless face could not fit into the mood they are in. It is so unreal.
