SCENE 2
SHOMAMA’S HOUSE

(Thelma sits on the sofa staring at the ceiling. Shomama stands over her)

Shomama

Thelma!

Thelma

(Jolts)

Mum…

Shomama

You will kill yourself with this thinking. I don’t like this. You can’t help the situation, why ponder over it for so long?

Thelma

Mum… you don’t understand. I promised to be everything for my princess. Why should I start failing now?

Shomama

Welcome to life! Things don’t always go the way we plan. You should know this by now.

Thelma

I have let my princess down.

Shomama

(Shakes her head)

Justina is a good girl. She will understand. You shouldn’t be too hard on yourself. So what? You had a bad year… re strategize!

Thelma

I did not have a bad year! It was just this December. I don’t know what happened. My money just vanished.

Shomama

Think hard! The trip to Dubai and other frivolous spending must have caused it.

Thelma

(Rolls her eyes)

It is not that. One minute I have so much in my bank account, the next minute it’s all gone. Some bad business deals, that’s what Femi said.

Shomama

(Sighs)

You will be fine. When will you be going to pick Justina?

Thelma

Tomorrow…

Shomama

Cheer up. Let me make you pasta and fish sauce. (Smiles and walks away)

SCENE 3
(In front of Pinewood college)

(Thelma parks her SUV and waits a few seconds before Justina arrives with her luggage. Thelma still in the car smiles as Justina opens the passenger’s door)

Justina

You are late! Won’t you help me with these bags?

Thelma

She is already giving orders!

Justina

(Smiles)

I know you missed me.

Thelma

(Smiles)

Yes my princess. Hop in with your luggage, let’s get out of here. I’m sure you are starving.

Justina

Yes!

(They laugh hard)

SCENE 4
(DE MONDE HOTEL, RESTAURANT)

(Justina watch Thelma use the fork to play with the salad. She is not eating)

Justina

You don’t like the salad? You can order something else.

(No response)

Justina

(Snaps her fingers in Thelma’s face)

Hey!

Thelma

That’s rude!

Justina

What is going on? You are not listening to me.

Thelma

Of course I heard you. I don’t think Wizkid should release an album at the moment.

Justina

(Folds her arms)

Really?

Thelma

(Rubs her face with her palm)

Tina… please finish your food. I will drop you off at Grandma’s.

Justina

Grandma’s? Why? What is wrong? Did I do something bad?

Thelma

No… no… no… it’s not you. It’s just that… the house is a mess. I need… I mean… I’m renovating the place.

Justina

That’s a lie!

Thelma

Just eat!

Justina

I’m done!

Thelma

Fine! Get into the car (stands and leaves Justina at the table)

(Thelma hands over Justina to Shomama and exits the house hurriedly)

Shomama

(Smiling)

You should take your bags to the guest room and settle in. we have a lot to catch up on.

Justina

(Fold her arms)

I am not stepping an inch.

Shomama

(Sighs)

Your mum… she needs to sort out a few things. She will come for you soon.

Justina

No! Something is wrong and I am being left in the dark on purpose. I am fifteen not five!

Shomama

Watch your tone princess! You should try to understand.

Justina

Understand what? What are you trying to make me understand? Is there a man? Is mum leaving me like…?

Shomama

No… no… your mum will never do that to you. She loves you too much and has been by your side. She is just going through a lot and needs to sort out things.

Justina

Grandma?

Shomama

Oh! Tina!

Justina

Just say it. What is going on? You know I will figure it out on my own.

Shomama

(Sighs)

Please… Tina, just let it be. Your mum is handling the situation.

Justina

(Smirks)

Okay… I will take my bags to the room now.

Shomama

I don’t like that look. I don’t like that look Tina.

SCENE 6
(SHOMAMA’S HOUSE)

(GUEST ROOM)

(Justina lay on the bed with a phone pressed to her ear)

Justina

Bimpe, I had to borrow Shomama’s phone to call you. My phone is in the house.

Bimpe

Okay. Yeah the house is out of bounds.

Justina

I wonder when the renovation will be over so that I can storm the hood.

Bimpe

What renovation?

Justina

The house was sealed because of renovation works.

Bimpe

Was that what your mum told you? The bank sealed your house. I heard she has some financial troubles.

Shomama

(Calls from the living room)

Justina! Your mum is here!

Justina

Uuum… Bimpe, I will call you back. My mum is back. (She hung up and jumps to her feet. She walks fuming all the way to the living room)

Thelma

My princess!

Justina

When did you plan on telling me that we are poor!

Shomama

Hey! Young woman!

Thelma

Who told you that?

Justina

I just spoke with Bimpe from the neighbourhood and she said the bank has sealed our house.

Thelma

Where did you get a phone?

Shomama

Oh dear! She said she wanted to call the matron at Pinewood that she left her sweaters. I should have known better.

Justina

(Shouts)

That is not the point! Imagine hearing that you are poor from a total stranger. Everyone knows but me! I thought we promised to be each other’s best friend. Best friends don’t keep secrets!

Thelma

Its adult stuff.

Justina

Is that all the explanation you can give?

Thelma

Shut up! Don’t you dare talk to me like that! I am your mother and I deserve some respect! Do you think I am fine with all these? My money’s vanished just like that! All I need is your understanding and not all these unnecessary drama. I didn’t raise an ungrateful brat! I owe you no explanation!

(Runs out sobbing)

Shomama

Are you satisfied? She lost everything and all she was worried about was the Christmas dress she promised you! Nothing else!
