big plans at the bath house.
INT:- MEYAKU ONSEN - EVENING - PRIVATIVE ROOM/PUBLIC SPRING

The Meyaku onsen looks like a traditional Japanese hot spring bath house. The MEYAKUS are a large extended family spanning five generations, are mainly in the other part of the large building. In one of the private rooms that can be open up to the public natural pool are; ANN 33, HARU MEYAKU age 55 The head of the clan, and SANA MEYAKU His time travelling grate granddaughter.

                             SANA

         Both Pavil and Francoeur have asked us to try to reduce the amount of toxic radioactive heavy metals left over from military style reactors.
         They are both accept the risk of removing that many people from the time line.

                             HARU

         Do we accept the risk.
         Pavil as only just been restored.

                             SANA

         They will be Chinese and Americans the risk here in Japan will be minimal for at least four generation.
         Pavil was still there he just stopped being a traveller.

                             HARU

         But what about the technological changes you want to cause.
         They will hit us immediately.
         Nearly all of the worlds floating cities use this technology.

                             ANN 33

         There are lots of alternative technological solutions.
         Toroidal fusion.
         piezoelectric fusion.
         pyroelectric fusion.
         linear accelerator magnetic bottle laser fusion.
         and several others.
         Its pyroelectric fusion we will use to make the bomb.

                             HARU

         But lots of people know this technology.

                             SANA

         Lots of people know this technology because they learned it in the army. Then when the military discarded them they took that knowledge with them.
         If the military use a different technique then lots of people will know the new cleaner way.

                             (Ann 67 appears)

         their going to do it what ever you say.
         I know because it was my first action, age twenty nine.

                   (Ann 67 makes the wall to the public spring pool disappear. She goes out, takes of her dress, and get in the water.)

                             SANA

         Not so. Venerable ancestor I trust you to decide in the best interest of all of your descendants, not just your immediate family.

                             ANN 33

         This will be sixty sevens last mission.
         The mission is a complete success with no loss of life, except sixty seven is never seen by us again, after Amita twenty sevens party.
         Knowing that she still thinks it wroth while.

                             HARU

         Ok.

                   (Sana puts on an ancients bronze torque)

                             ANN 33

         Your not still using that old thing?

                             SANA

         I am going to be making two hops onto two submarines in two different oceans nearly a decade apart, without any real knowledge of where or when, I will take all the help I can get.

                   ( Sana disappears.)
TT FADE OUT          


                   (Sana reappears looking shocked)

TT FADE IN          


                             SANA

         Done.

                   (She hands Ann 33 a bit of paper)

                             SANA

         There. Their are three hundred and eighteen men, sixteen women, and a pig to be dragged from A to B. before you can scuttle the subs and blow them up with small hydrogen bombs.

                             HARU

         Two subs will be enough?
         To totally discredit this technology.

                   (shouting from out side)

                             ANN 33

         YES

                   (They go out side and look up at New Tokyo. A kilometre high, two kilometre wide dome. Sat on top of a stubby looking one kilometre tall cylinder.)

                             HARU

         Its hard to believe a city that big could fly.
         Float in the sky.

                             ANN 33

         Its obvious, once you understand the significance of cube square law.
         A summer thunder shower might drop a millimetre of rain over a square kilometre. Doing the maths, that's one million square metres, times point zero zero one metres of rain, that equals one thousand cubic metres of water. Each cubic metre of water weighs a ton.
         A fare weather cumulus of a quarter the size will hold less than one hundred tons.
         The grater the volume a thing has the easer it is to make it float.

                             SANA

         He doesn't get it.
         Grate grandfather, it is like this. If you make a balloon twice as big, it will weigh four times as much, and hold eight times the volume. If you make it one hundred times larger it will weigh ten thousand times as much. But it will hold a million times the volume.

                             ANN 33

         Most of the weight of new Tokyo there, is the air inside it.
         Despite all of the people and all their property, air makes up most of its weight.
         If that air is even slightly lighter than the cold air outside, then because there is just so much of it, the city will float.

                             HARU

         I see.
         I see the city floating.

                             SANA

         Honourable grandfather I must leave I have my duties to attend to.

                   (Sana disappears)

TT FADE OUT          


                             ANN 33

         I must be on my way as well. We are going to have a party in nineteen ten, to welcome Amita twenty seven to our group.
         Sixty seven remember you have to start the recruiting of Amita twenty seven before we can have this party.

                   (Ann 33 disappears)          

TT FADE OUT          


                             HARU

         They really don't know about...

                             ANN 67

         No and you won't tell them!



CUT          

INT/EXT:- NEW TOKYO - MEYAKU PALACE - GARDEN - MID MORRING

ANN 69 and Haru Meyaky now aged 72 are cuddling on a large day bed in what is otherwise an immaculate Japanese garden

                             ANN 69

         See lover, I told you I would rewrite history so that you and I could live out the rest of our lives together in luxury.
