​SCRIPT

It’s lunch time for the lord.

Lord:           Sandayu, bring me a red snapper.
Sandayu:     Here you are, sir.

The lord took a bite.

Lord:            Sandayu, bring me another.

Sandayu didn’t prepare another fish for the lord.

Sandayu:       Lord, why don’t you take a look at the cherry trees over

there? They are in full bloom now.

While the lord was taking a look at the cherry trees, Sandayu turned over the fish.

Sandayu:      Lord, here’s another snapper.

The lord took a bite.

Lord:            Sandayu, Bring me the next.
Sandayu:      Well…
Lord:            Sandayu what’s wrong? Do you want me to look at the

cherry trees again?
