We have been bad uncles.


MIKE
How do we tell Bunmi her mother is
coming for her?


MX
How do we Bunmi her mother has been
away in jail because she killed her
father?


HOSPITAL DAY
Bunmi is a whole lot better from the last time, but she has never been more bored, changing the channels on the T.V as none impresses her till she turns it off and just flat looking at the ceiling.
Anjola pops in.


ANJOLA

Bunmi eating.


ANJOLA

BUNMI
Ready to go home.
A guy comes in the room.


BENJAMIN

He hands it over to her.


ANJOLA

BENJAMIN
(To Bunmi)

BUNMI
(Still lost in her stare)
You are welcome.


BENJAMIN
(Slight chuckle)

He leaves.

(Smacks her back to her
senses)
What’s wrong with you?


BUNMI

BUNMI
Really? He took all the beauty and
left you with none.


ANJOLA

BUNMI
Hahaha, you are jealous.


ANJOLA
You wish.


BUNMI
How was school today?


ANJOLA

Moment?

MIKE

BUNMI
You mean the woman that left me to
be with another man.


MX
That’s, that’s one way to put it.


MIKE
Who told you that?


BUNMI
No one had to. how can a mother
leave her baby and just disappear?


MX
Well she has reappeared and she
wants to apologies.


BUNMI
It’s a little too late for that.


MIKE
Bunmi, do not piss ne off, you are being
stubborn, and you Know I hate stubborn.

BUNMI
Uncle Mike, forget all this muscle.
Let me tell you, it’s because I
respect you that’s why I act scared
of you. No dey feel yourself.


MIKE
Bunmi, it’s me you are talking to.


BUNMI
So? I need to breath, fresh air.
She leaves.

MX
All your muscles and you cannot do
anything.


HOSPITAL CORRIDOR, DAY
Bunmi obviously pissed off, crying also as she tries to shuffle her way outside. Anjola sees and tries to reach her hand, but Bunmi does not let her, and in the process she hits a woman slightly on her shoulder, Making her bag fall.


BUNMI
(She stops for a bit)
Sorry ma.
She continues her walk outside.
ANJOLA

(Running after her)
Bunmi stop, wait for me.


HOSPITAL’S GARDEN, DAY.
Bunmi is sitting on the grass, Anjola joins sitting right in front of her.


ANJOLA (cont’d)
You walk really fast for someone
who was shot about a week ago.
Bunmi raises her crying face.


ANJOLA (cont’d)
Oh no....
Anjola goes closer holding her hand.


ANJOLA (cont’d)
What happened?
BUNMI
My mum is back.


ANJOLA
That’s good news right?


BUNMI
It is supposed to be.
The woman Bunmi hit while running comes to join them, she sits beside them, as they look at her unsure of what she wants.


WOMAN
I hope you do not mind?


BUNMI
(Cleaning her face)
Who are you?


WOMAN
A friend if you want me to. When
you bumped into me, I saw the tears
in your eyes, I could not just let
it go.


BUNMI
I am fine, Thank you. Can we leave

Anjola?
They both leave.
The woman turns on her phone, she goes to her whats app massager clicks on the contact "little brother" and in the messages is a picture of Bunmi, she tears a little as she watches her daughter walk away.
