Episode 6 – Make the Choice

AMINU’S ROOM – 9am.

Chi-Chi wakes up with Aminu’s hand around her.IMG_7277She suddenly recalls last night.
Aminu is still half-asleep.

CHI-CHI
oh my God!

Aminu wakes up.
Chi-Chi avoids eye contact with him.

IMG_7289AMINU
hey.
CHI-CHI
please get your hand off me.

He slowly lifts his hand off her.

AMINU
…what is the problem?

She wraps the blanket around her naked body and stands off the bed.

CHI-CHI
nothing. I just need to leave… I can’t believe you took advantage of me last night.
AMINU
advantage?! You were the one who took off my trousers!IMG_7298

She ignores his statement. She picks up her dress from the side of the bed.
She then goes into the bathroom and locks the door.
Aminu sits up on the bed, properly.IMG_7303The sleep finally leaves his eyes and he suddenly feels the effects of the extra champagne last night.
Chi-Chi comes out of the bathroom quite quickly, with her clothes back on.
She heads back towards the bed to get her shoes and bag.

CHI-CHI
whatever happened last night was a mistake.
AMINU
a mistake? The first time we have sex and you call it a mistake.
CHI-CHI
there’s no more ‘WE’, Aminu! We’re not going out, so this shouldn’t have happened.
AMINU
I had a great time last night.
CHI-CHI
just shut up.IMG_7310

She puts on her shoes.
She picks up her phone and puts it in her bag.

AMINU
what are you doing?
CHI-CHI
I’m leaving, what does it look like I’m doing?
AMINU
why are you so hyper? Relax na, so I can put on a shirt and drop you.
CHI-CHI
don’t worry, I’ll take a cab.
AMINU
this is just unfair; you’re not even letting me have a say in this.IMG_7313CHI-CHI
no, Aminu, you don’t have a say, this is my choice. I want something else – I want someone who is capable of loving me; I want romance in my life – I need to feel loved.
AMINU
and I don’t do that?
CHI-CHI
you can’t, Aminu. You’re not capable of loving any girl – girls are just play things for you… but I am tired of letting you use my head as your playground. I’m not going to be that weak little girl anymore. I choose to find someone who would want nothing else but me.IMG_7343

Aminu has nothing to say in response.
She picks her bag and heads towards the door.

AMINU
and I was thinking we’ll have breakfast this morning and gist and catch up.
CHI-CHI
[opening the door] enjoy your breakfast.IMG_7348

She leaves and shuts the door.
Aminu stares at the shut door, feeling sad.

CLASSROOM – 7:30pm.


Shewa is trying to do some reading.She keeps getting distracted.
She pulls out the business card again, which was given to her last night at the club, by Mr. David.
She’s trying to muster up the courage to call.
Her phone rings. She looks at it.
It’s ‘Lumi’ calling.IMG_7371This is about the tenth time he’s calling today.
She ignores his call, like she’s been doing all day.
Her phone stops ringing.
She picks up the card again, and this time, dials the number.IMG_7373It rings.

SHEWA
hello… am I speaking to Mr. David?IMG_7377DAVID
speaking. Who’s this?
SHEWA
this is… Shewa. You sent your card to me at the club last night; you said I should call you concerning a modeling job –
DAVID
oh oh! Yeah. How are you doing?IMG_20140925_222539IMG_7385SHEWA
I’m great, thank you.
DAVID
I was really hoping you would call. I already told my colleague that I saw someone for our Ad campaign.
SHEWA
really?
DAVID
yeah. We are planning to launch a new product in the market and we need a face like yours that can appeal to the youth market. So we would like to use your photographs in connection with our brand.
SHEWA
oh really? That sounds nice. What product is that?IMG_7381IMG_20140925_222515DAVID
I’ll tell you all about it. Where are you at the moment?
SHEWA
I’m… at school.
DAVID
okay. Can we meet later on today, say, around 8:30pm?
SHEWA
where?
DAVID
emmm…. at Chicken Republic, Akoka… we can have dinner while we discuss – I’ll bring along my colleague.
SHEWA
…okay… I would try to make it.
DAVID
please do. Do you have any modeling experience?
SHEWA
emm… no.
DAVID
really? So you’re a novice?
SHEWA
emm… yes.
DAVID
hmmm… oh well, let’s see what we can do about that. You definitely have the talent and there’s always a first time.IMG_20140925_222502IMG_7390SHEWA
thanks for the compliment.
DAVID
oh, my pleasure. So, we hope to see you in the evening.
SHEWA
okay. No problem.
DAVID
good. What’s the name again?
SHEWA
Shewa.
DAVID
okay Shewa, see you later.
SHEWA
you too, Mr. David.IMG_7384

She puts down her phone, smiling.
Her phone then rings. She looks at it. It’s ‘Lumi’ calling, again.
Her smile disappears.
She tries to ignore it as usual.IMG_7394She changes her mind and picks up the call.
