Episode 6 to 10
episode 6
*the next day morning*
(scene opens with kemi in her room folding up
some cloths as mercy walks in with a sad face
,already dressed for school)
kemi:- my daughter,what is it this time?
mercy:- daddy has refused to drop the balance
for my ssce fee.
kemi:- (exclaims) has it gotten to this level?
mercy:- mun,are you to be asking me such
dont u talk to your husband.
all this while,u keep telling me that he'll soon
realise.when will that be?
is it until i repeat the ssce exam or when i drop
out of school?
i need answers mum.
kemi:- i do talk to him..but he doesnt listen.. if it
was that i gave birth to u before or after
meshach,he would have sent both of us out
saying u are a bastard..but u are lucky that you
both came at once..so just accept what fate has
to offer and let God do his wonders..
mercy:- all what u just said is rubbish
,mum..honestly,its rubbish..will fate bring money
for my exam?
or if u give me the money from your own
pocket,will daddy kill u?
kemi:- i wish i could,but 50,000 isnt a small
ammount..if i have,i'll give to u..
mercy:- so you're indirectly saying i wont be
priviledged to write this exam,right.
kemi:- lets just pray and hope your father turns
mercy:- okay o..
(she walks out and stands by the lobby outside
kemi's room)
mercy:- (soliloquising) is it a crime that i was
born into this family as a girl?(stays quiet and
restless for a minute)

remould me.as long as i'll be trained to stand for
myself,becausenwith the way thing are going in

episode 7
(@ school)
meshach: guys i'm having a lot on my mind now.
simon:- what can be on your mind? you're drunk
david:- yh..and drinkers dont think.especially
when drunk..
moses:- you fools,no one is drunk here.if u are
drunk,u wont even have consciousness for the
words u speak.. this discussion is far too
reasonable for drunkards.
meshach:- i'm serious guys.my sister isn't
feeling real good.she's probably thinking and
crying somewhere as usual right now..
simon:- you seem really worried about her tho..
david:- the poor girl
moses:- she must be really having a hard time...
meshach:- dad said i shouldn't bother to think of
her anymore.
david:- i'm not surprised tho..your dad is a royal
offspring.so its obvious that they value male
children ober the females.
meshach:- thats true.i never thought of that
moses:- (jokes) who knew david can ever say
something this good
david:-(offended) what is that suppose to mean?
meshach:- guys calm down..lets just go out to
the field and play a little.

didn't feel alright..

dami:- and i don't think i own any certain amount
to give to u.
dora:- neither do i.

ghetto today u will experience how we fight for
ourselves on the streets.are u going to come
