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.

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

One of the reasons.

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

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

Please stay. London is a good place to stay.

Tokyo is great too. Why donít you come over?

Sure - If you ask.

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

Nothing can happen between us now.

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

Ah... I almost forgot...

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

Just like what we did before?

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.
