INT. SAINT MIKES AUDITORIUM / SOUND BOOTH
Minami is frozen on the spot, her eyes wide open in
realization that they had heard her.
(Internal monologue) Oh man,
what do I do? They heard me
(Internal monologue) How?
Still frozen, her eyes dart around the room. CUT to the
auditorium. The students of the Vocal club look around for
the mysterious voice they heard sing along with their
captain. Nikky walks to the edge of the stage, pointing at
the window of the sound booth room.
Oi! Who the bloody hell is up
CUT to sound booth. Minami quickly backs away from the
window. As she does, she notices the sound board. The button
labeled 'Auditorium Mic' was switched on. Minami's eyes
widen even more and slams the button, turning it off. CUT to
auditorium. Most of the crowd winces at the noise of the
microphone being slammed off. A.J now stands, looking up at
the room. Nikky addresses the group.
Hazel, be a darling and go find out
who the bloody hell that was?
Hazel shoots a despiteful look at Nikky before leaving the
club. CUT to sound booth room. Minami hastily grabs her
(Internal monologue) I can't
let them see me!
As she hurriedly leaves the room, her sketchbook falls out
of her bag. Too much in a hurry to leave, this goes by
unnoticed. She leaves the room and races down the campus
hallway. CUT to Hazel. Hazel makes her way up the stairs and
into the sound room. She opens the door and walks inside.
Whoever you are, we are trying to
She walks over to the sound board and takes a quick look.
She finds the auditorium mic and casually switches it on
before walking to the window.
Whoever was here left, Nikky.
Over the shoulder shot of Hazel looking out the window at
Too bad. They did have a nice
voice. Right then, get you're ass
back down here, Hazel. Practice is
Hazel switches off the mic and turns to leave. As she does,
she notices something sprawled out on the floor. She picks
it up to inspect. It was a black sketchbook. Inside the
cover was written 'This belongs to Kyuki Minami'. Also
inside the cover was a very old and beaten up picture of
Minami's parents. Unimpressed, Hazel flips through the book.
As she flips, an idea dawns on her face. Packing the book
her bag, she takes her leave to return to the Vocal club.
INT. CAMPUS HALLWAY
Minami slows her run down to a walk as she approaches the
end of the hall. Something catches her eye as she walks.
Squinting, she moves forward. On the exit door, the words
'Question Authority' was painted on it. Minami stands there,
making a scrunchy face. She points at the door.
She walks closer and sniffs it.
Smells fresh! I wonder if it has
something to do with the school...
Shrugging her shoulder, she exits trough the door.
(Internal Monologue) Can't
believe I hit that ON button.
I hope no one knows it was me
(Internal Monologue) Got to be
more careful next time. Maybe
I should wait to go back?
Lost in thought, Minami slowly makes her way across campus.
EXT. IAU CAMPUS
Evening shot of the campus.
INT. GIRLS DORM
***** [Removed for novel spoilers]*****
EXT. IAU CAMPUS
Students wander about from their classes as the snow outside
falls lightly on the campus grounds. A freshly rested Minami
wanders into the campus' Saint Mike's building.
INT. SAINT MIKES AUDITORIUM / SOUND BOOTH
Minami is on her hands and knees searching for her
sketchbook. As she looks, the door opens, and someone
wearing combat boots walks in.
Looking for this, love?
Startled, Minami bangs her head on the soundboard. She turns
around, rubbing her head. She is greeted by Nikky, standing
proud in the doorway, holding onto her precious picture.
My picture! I, uh, how? I mean,
Nikky tosses the picture to Minami, who scrambles on the
floor and barely catches it.
Hazel found this in here the other
day during practice.
Minami sits on her knees, holding back tears of happiness as
she holds the picture tightly to her chest. Nikky walks
inside, taking a seat on an empty chair.
Someone was singing along to our
songs. I bet that someone was you.
This is your picture after all,
Minami now stares happily at the picture of her parents,
pretending not to fully hear.
Your cute blonde friend sang like a
cannery when she recognized it.
So, naturally, it's no coincidence
your picture was found in here. You
were singing along to our practice.
Embarrassed, Minami slowly lowers the picture, eyes open
wide and face turning red.
Don't be shy, love. It was bloody
Minami looks at Nikky, her face still reddening.
I'm sorry! I... No one was supposed
to hear me. Sorry.
Look, if you want to sing with us
so badly, just join us. God only
knows we bloody need a good voice.
Only four can carry a good tune.
If it makes you feel better, Derek
convinced Freckles to join. Though
between you and me, she doesn't
have a great voice.
Tilting her head and raising an eyebrow, Minami replies.
Nikky gets up to leave.
A-something. Derek said she was
your room mate?
As she approaches the door, Nikky gives one last order.
Practice begins in 20 minutes.
Don't be late.
She leaves the room, leaving Minami alone on the floor.
INT. SAINT MIKES AUDITORIUM
Minami slowly walks into the auditorium. She takes a look
around, spotting A.J talking happily with Derek and Mark.
A.J turns around and sees Minami, waving for her to join in.
Minami awkwardly walks towards her friends. Nikky spots
Scar, you made it. Brilliant.
Alright everyone! Scar over here is
going to sing to show what she's
got, so we know what we're working
I'm going to do what?!
Just sing something short. Blondie
already did, now its your turn!
Minami stands awkwardly as everyone stares at her. A.J nods
reassuringly at Minami. She swallows, shaking slightly, and
Into the darkness...
(Internal Monologue) This is
She sings one more, a little bit louder, but not by much,
her face reddening.
Imn- ahem... Into the darkness I'll
bring you a melody, and I will your
A.J's eyes widen in admiration. To herself, she speaks.
Beautiful. Ah never...
Till your weary eyes and my
lullabies, have carried you softly
Carry with you peace and the love
of your past, and carry my love in
My daughter you're loved so much
more than you know. May your future
stay brilliantly bright.
A.J stands, mouth agape. Her eyes filled with new found
Mina... That was beautiful.
Minami looks at the ground shyly, blushing.
Just a song my mom used to sing to
Not bad, love. However, it may be a
solo, but that doesn't mean you
should sing so low that we can
hardly hear you.
From what I can hear, you could be
better than Hazel. Might use you in
the lead sometime.
Furious, Hazel storms towards Nikky, shoving her in the
What the hell Nikky? She's not even
in the vocal program!
Suck it up sweetheart. She can
carry a bloody tune better than
you, even if we can barely hear
Cyrus reassuringly touches his girlfriends shoulder, while
giving Nikky an evil look.
Calm down Hazel. There will be
Hazel brushes him off and turns to make her leave. She
purposely bumps hard into Minami as she leaves, speaking
only to her as she goes.
Back the hell away bitch.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The preview image is of Minami, drawn by the ever most awesome *ryuuen. It's part of the 'South' Volume 1 Cover I asked him to do of both Mina & A.J together (you can see part of A.J's arm to the right). Here is the original deviation: fav.me/d5tgiq2
Oh yeah, this is going to be made into a comic, drawn by the ever most awesome *ryuuen. But I'm not entirely sure on how to write scripts for comics, so I'm writing it in film script version for now, but you get the gist of what's going on.
