being sucked by all this darkness.

As if nothing has ever existed.

Just kidding!

Nan said he'd like to take a walk.

At this hour?

It's kind of late.

It's the cat!

Don't be afraid.

I told you I didn't want to come.

I don't care about your crickets.

Do you want to stay at home with your mom?

Stop bantering with each other.

You should know very well...

...that Baos biggest fear...

is darkness.

Please, no rats.

Am I such a coward?


See who'll get the crickets first?

Where are you going?

A rat!

Look at yourself!

You were laughing at Bao.

Happy birthday.

It comes in a pair.

I bought it for the two of you.

You bought it primarily for her.

If that's what you think,

you may throw it away.

It's too dark here.

Much darker than the stage.

I think the opposite.

The stage is often very bright.

So bright that you can

never see the audience.


This has an advantage.

At least you won't feel nervous.

It won't ruin your performance.

You don't have to care about...

... how others would look at you.

You seem to be freer on stage.

Won't mind how others think of you.

One can also choose one's favorite part...

to play when one's on stage...

and play it as one likes.

That'll be heaven.

You can't play the way you like on stage.

You have partners, and a director.

Not to mention the playwright.

It's not as simple as you'd think.


how's your play,

the legend of the plum blossom, going?

It's okay.

It's just...

Bao is in trouble.

The director is very demanding.

The female lead is fussy, too.

Can I go watch your rehearsals?

It's okay if the answer is no.

I don't mean that.

We're still at the beginning.

You may come later when we dress rehearse.

Did you find any cricket?


Did you find any cricket?

Didn't see any. I'll look further.
