bench by the basketball court.

SHAWN arrives at the park. He looks around the park and,
seeing nothing, scratches his head. He continues walking
around the park with a curious expression on his face.

SHAWN walks over by the swings and sits on one of the
swings, wondering to himself where this person is. He holds
his head down; suddenly a dark figure came over shadow him
like a cloud on a stormy day

hand. Until, the resounds of the voice rings SHAWN'S ears
with familiarity. SHAWN looks up and smiles at Viktor

people have got cross up in my
ambition.(pause.) I am not the guy
