FADE IN:


INT. SMALL ROOM - DAY

BILLY sits in a chair and stares at the trees outside the window. 

The INTERVIEWER (O.S.) clears her throat. Billy snaps out of it and then turns to look directly at-- 


THE CAMERA


BILLY: We were about half-way to our destination when I started seeing her. First time, she was sitting on my bed. I about shit my spacesuit. Just sat there and stared at me with those big, green eyes. And I thought to myself... what if it's like that movie in space with these things from some hell-dimension haunting the crew... and killing them one after another. (shakes his head) I started seeing her everywhere. Bathroom...hallways. Back and forth like fucking déjà vu.


INT. SPACE STATION - FLASHBACK

Going over some data, Billy looks up to watch a BLACK CAT walk past the door frame one way... and then come back the other.

END FLASHBACK.


BACK TO SCENE

INTERVIEWER (O.S.): Why didn't you tell any of your crew?


BILLY: Didn't want them to think I was loosing my shit.


INT. SPACE STATION - FLASHBACK

Billy, Helen, and William are having a very bland-looking meal together at a small table. The cat has joined them but they all seem to pretend it doesn't exist. Awkward silence.


The cat starts to give itself a very personal bath. 


William is suddenly deeply engaged with his food. Billy nods to some imaginary tune or has finally accepted that he's lost it. Helen gawks at the cat and then shoves a spoonful of blah into her mouth.

END FLASHBACK.


BACK TO SCENE

BILLY: Felt like the fucking pink elephant in the room. Except black... and not as big.


INTERVIEWER (O.S.): Did you know that it was Ted's cat?


Billy's face freezes for a looong pause. Then--


BILLY: What?


FADE OUT.
