Shewa is not in a good mood but she tries to hide it.
They find a free desk and sit down

CHI-CHI
I still can’t believe your face is going to be on billboards soon.

Shewa forces a giggle.

SHEWA
I can’t believe it myself. I just cashed the check today sef.
CHI-CHI
too much money! Paga your girl o!
SHEWA
I’m… excited.

_MG_1554

CHI-CHI
so where are we going to?
SHEWA
…sure, let’s go out na – where do you think?
CHI-CHI
let’s go clubbing, just you and me.
SHEWA
haa, Chi-Chi just two of us? It’s not safe na.

_MG_1560

CHI-CHI
abegi joor! There’s nothing there, we’ll take a cab there and take a cab back – we’ll dance with random boys and get tipsy; it’ll be fun!
SHEWA
you’re crazy!

_MG_1563

CHI-CHI
I’m single.

They both laugh.

SHEWA
okay oo, if you say so. When should we go?
CHI-CHI
hmmm, maybe upper week. Shey you won’t have spent all your money by then?
SHEWA
nope, I’m keeping it in the bank, but our celebration is necessary.
CHI-CHI
yess! I can’t wait! So… gist me about the photo shoot; how was it?

_MG_1572

Shewa forces a giggle.

SHEWA
…nothing special happened… it was alright, we just did make up, I got dressed then I posed for the pictures… I got to learn a lot sha.
CHI-CHI
hmmm! My girl is now a super model oo!
SHEWA
na so, I still have a long way to go o, but I’m happy I got started sha.
CHI-CHI
…and Lumi was scared the guy just wanted to wanted to have sex with you.
SHEWA
well… there was obviously no sex.

_MG_1581

CHI-CHI
even me, I was scared the guy was a weirdo… but the truth is, you have what it takes to be a model, sooner or later someone would have walked up to you.
SHEWA
thank you dear, that means a lot.

They open up their books and start reading.

_MG_1589

A short silence.

SHEWA
I even saw Lumi this morning sef.
CHI-CHI
oh yeah?
SHEWA
yeah.
CHI-CHI
I thought you guys were taking a break?
SHEWA
we still are… he just came to my hostel and asked me to come downstairs… so I came down.
CHI-CHI
you’re really torturing him; it’s not fair.

_MG_1592

SHEWA
come on Chi-Chi, you know I’m not doing it on purpose. I’m even hurting just by seeing him hurt… it’s just not a good time.
CHI-CHI
what’s not good about now? You just got your first modeling job, so he’ll never argue with you again about it. He’s still at your door asking for you… I think it’s a good time, Shewa…. except there’s something else.
SHEWA
something else? Like what?

_MG_1596

CHI-CHI
like maybe you don’t really love him.
SHEWA
…I… don’t even know what love is because I’ve never been in love.
CHI-CHI
and you don’t feel like you’re in love right now?

A short silence.
Shewa finds it hard to answer the question.

_MG_1599

She forcefully turns her attention back to her book.

SHEWA
I don’t know Chi-Chi: I’m just not ready.
CHI-CHI
okay, okay, I’ve heard.

Chi-Chi turns her attention to her books also.
