S01E06: You Made A Black girl blush by Minna Davies | #YMABGB




Bunmi takes the card. 

BUNMI 
Margaret? 

MARGARET 
Yes, sounds familiar? 

BUNMI 
Yeah. 

They both stare for a while. 

BENJAMIN 
Your uncle is coming. 

They both take off. 

16 YEARS AGO... 
NEW YORK. PRISON. DAY 
Visiting hours, Margaret sitting, waiting, she hears footsteps behind her, getting closer, she know it’s coming to her but she does not flinch. He stops just behind her. 

MARGARET 
I know its Sam, you still use 
The same cheap perfume. 

He walks to sit in front of her. Sam is an American in his forties, a business man and always keeps a straight face. 

SAM 
Hi to you too. 

MARGARET 
What are you doing here? 

SAM 
I came to collect my reward, 
The one you stole from me. 

MARGARET 
I don’t have it. 

SAM 
Where is she? 

MARGARET 
I don’t know. 

SAM 
You don’t know where you two year 
Old daughter is. Am I a fool? 

MARGARET 
Apparently you are not. 

SAM 
You and your stupid boyfriend played me. 

MARGARET 
No, you and my stupid boyfriend played  
Me. I only played back. 
SAM 
Dean was so smart, he put  
everything in her name, everything. 
the house, the money. And he  
wagered it all, I won, it means I own 
everything, and she... she is the key to it. 

MARGARET 
My daughter cannot be part of this. 

SAM 
I am not going to harm her, I just need 
What is mine. 

MARGARET 
I don’t know where she is. 

MARGARET stands and leaves him. 


HOSPITAL, MORNING 

Bunmi on the bed, Mx and Mike are with her, a doctor enters. 

DOCTOR 
How are you feeling now Bunmi? 

BUNMI 
Ready to go home. 

DOCTOR 
Great, because we are ready to 
Let you go. 

MX 
Thank you very much Doctor 

Bunmi eagerly getting her things ready, Anjola rushes in breathing hard, she had obviously ran to get there on time. 

ANJOLA 
Sorry I a late. Good morning everyone 

BUNMI 
(smiles) 
You can help me with my stuff. 



DOCTOR 
Alright sirs, can I see both of 
You in my office. 

Mx, the Doctor and Mike leaves. 

BUNMI 
What happened yesterday? 

ANJOLA 
I am sorry. 
(joking with her) 
So Benjamin came around yesterday. 

BUNMI 
(Blushing) 
It was nothing. 

ANJOLA 
And you are blushing, come on, I know 
You like him. 

BUNMI 
(smiling) 
No I don’t 

ANJOLA 
Can you stop smiling already, 
You would make me blush too. 

BUNMI 
I am so happy I am leaving, now 
I can go back to my life. 

ANJOLA 
What life exactly? 

BUNMI 
(Looking at Anjola, lost) 
I don’t know, I am eighteen and 
I really do not know.  

ANJOLA 
You mom? 



BUNMI 
Let’s not talk about her. 


PRESENT DAY 

OUTSIDE THE CLUB, NIGHT 

MARGARET coming outside the club, walking on the pedestrian, two guys walking behind her, she notices them and pays no attention at first, but they move a little faster, she immediately senses danger and tries to run, they run in pursuit of her, before she could move father, one immediately grabs her, holds her tight so she can’t move, but she is restless, fighting her way through. The other guy holds her leg, they cross over to a car by the other side of the street and shove her in. the car is dark, she tries to fight her way out of the car, screaming 

VOICE 
It’s been a while Margaret  

The voice calms her calms her screaming. 

SAM puts on the light in the car; she is surprised to see him. 

SAM 
I knew you would lead me right 
 to her, all I had to do was wait.
