She goes to sit on mx’s seat, Mike and MX Are really surprised to see her. 

MIKE 
You said you were coming  
Next week 

MARGRET 
I lied. I have seen her, she 
 is beautiful. 

MX 
We tried to talk to her about 
You coming, she flipped, its going 
To be difficult convincing her Meg. 

MARGARET 
Then, we don’t do that. She hates her  
Mother, maybe she might like a friend. 


Harry Enters hippie, he notices the scene and composes himself. 

HARRY 
Good evening ma sirs. 

MX 
What’s the problem? 

HARRY 
We are waiting for you 
Mr Mike. 

MIKE 
Damn, I forgot. Friday night. Who 
Is waiting? 

HARRY 
Ebuka. 

Mike smiles. 

MARGARET 
What’s happening? 



OUTSIDE THE CLUB, NIGHT 

The cheering crowd makes a circle; almost half of the crowd are drunk, with the loud banging sounds coming from the Dj’s speakers. 

Going through the hippie, drunk, noisy crowd, Ebuka is in the center leading the entire cheer with his boxing gloves on. 

HOSPITAL, NIGHT 

Bunmi and Benjamin are laughing from a previous joke. 

BUNMI 
I never knew you were this funny. 

BENJAMIN 
You have been through a lot, 
Glad I can make you smile. 

BUNMI 
Why did Anjola not come today? 

BENJAMIN 
I don’t know, school maybe. She  
Told me to come chill with you. 

BUNMI 
(Checking the clock on the 
Wall) 
It’s late. 

BENJAMIN 
It’s just Nine. 

BUNMI 
(She looks at the clock again) 
Can I take you out? 

BENJAMIN 
(being sarcastic) 
On a date, oh please don’t flatter me. 

Bunmi keeps a straight face, not impressed by the joke. 



BENJAMIN 
(chuckles slightly) 
Okay she is serious. Okay cool, 
You can take me out. 

BUNMI 
(hastens off her bed) 
Make sense, let’s go. 

 Bunmi walks to the door and notices that Benjamin is not following; she looks at him to get him up. 

BENJAMIN 
Wait, you mean now? 

BUNMI 
Yes. 

BENJAMIN 
Are you joking? 

BUNMI 
Are you coming with me or not? 
(she comes to drag him off his seat) 
Don’t worry, it is going to be 
Fun. 

BENJAMIN 
But it’s late. 

BUNMI 
It’s just nine. 

ANJOLA’S SCHOOL, NIGHT 

Department of English, Lecture room 

Anjola is the only one in the room, she is playing her guitar writing a song. 

ANJOLA 
Song* In your dreams 
In your sleep 
In your wildest imagination  
When you think... 

Sanni enters, hanging on the frame of the door, she notices, and continues singing, smiling at him. 

ANJOLA 
...Songabout me, do you have the  
Sweetest sensation 
Ohh, when you wondering around 
And you are so so down 
Do you think of my face, y jokes and 
Laugh it out 
When you are feeling so lonely 
And you want to hold my body 
Do not tell it to your mommy 
Or she might think that you’re crazy 
But boy, you know, you crazy in love with me 
Uh uh uh uh uh 
Boy, you know uhh 
You are crazy in love with me 

By the end of the song, Sanni is already beside her, they share  a romantic glare as he makes to kiss her, but he is replied with a slap instead. 

SANNI 
The hell. 

ANJOLA 
You kept me waiting for two hours. 

SANNI 
I was busy, I am sorry. 

ANJOLA 
Busy doing what? 

SANNI 
Things 

Anjola gathering her things 

ANJOLA 
You have to be kidding me. 

SANNI 
What are you doing? 


ANJOLA 
Leaving, I have to go home. 
It’s late. 

She leaves. 

SANNI 
Not even a hug, I love you. 
(he makes a call) 
Hey Tonia... yeah I am at home alone.. 
Sure...can’t wait to see you. 

OUTSIDE THE CLUBE, NIGHT 

The boxing circle. The crowd goes wild screaming to the fill of the marchBunmi and Benjamin in the crowd also, Benjamin is surprised how overwhelmed Bunmi is. 

BUNMI 
(screaming SO Benjamin can hear her) 
That’s my uncle. 

BENJAMIN 
You said? 

BUNMI 
(Pointing to mike who is already throwing 
Body punches at Ebuka 
My uncle. 

BENJAMIN 
(with a smile on his face) 
Are you trying to make me scared? 

 Mike knocks out his opponent with an upper cut causing him to fly to the ground and pass out. (Try to imagine that in slow motion, cool right) The referee checks to see if he can continue without saying a word the referee raises Mike’s hand making him the winner. The crowd screams even more calling his name. 

CROWD 
Mike! Mike! 

OUTSIDE THE CLUB, NIGHT 

The crowd is reducedless noise, everyone either going home or going back into the club, Bunmi and Benjamin going back to the hospital. 

BENJAMIN 
This is the craziest date ever. 

BUNMI 
First, it’s not a date. Second 
You are welcome. 

BENJAMIN 
Are you running away from  
Your uncles? 

BUNMI 
Yes, they can’t find me here. 

VOICE

Bunmi and Benjamin turns, its Margaret running towards them 

MARGARET 
(Trying to catch her breath) 
Wow its great to see you again. 

BUNMI

Sit with us in the garden. 

MARGRET 
Wired, that’s a good start, and a good fight too.
