002 fortune

a flashback. a first date. in a chinese dumpling restaurant:

"what does yours say? let me read it"
[she takes the cookie out of his hands. breaks it with her teeth and reads it out loud.

"a heart in love is always young"
[she laughs. and then smiles]

"okay. now you read my fortune"
[cookie in her grasp. she hands it to him]

[he smiles and takes the cookie.
gently, he cracks the cookie with his fingers.
nothing. an empty strip of paper]


"nothing? what do u mean nothing?"

[he flashes the fortune]

"what does it mean then?
that i have no fortune.
that it's unwritten?
that it's in my hands?"
