FYNN PHOTO STUDIO, YABA – 12 NOON
Shewa is getting ready for her photoshoot.
The Makeup Artist works on her face.
I really like your work.
… thank you.
So how many other models are coming?
Just one more girl, Lizzy
Where is the Lizzy girl?
I don’t know o. She should have been here two hours ago. The photographer has been shouting on me because of her. As if I even know who the Lizzy girl is.
A pretty, slim girl walks in, looking very self-assured.
She smiles briefly at Shewa. She then speaks to the Makeup Artist.
Hi, my name is Lizzy. Is this where the LUCHY GREEN Fashion Photo shoot is taking place?
Shewa and The Makeup Artist look at her, incredulously.
So you’re the Lizzy? Look at the time you’re coming – the photographer is very, very angry at you.
Oh I’m really sorry. I had a little too much fun last night – I apologize. Went clubbing with my friends, we had a little too much to drink – one thing led to another – at the end, this morning I woke up in a stranger’s house at Banana Island. I would have freaked out if not for the fact that the guy was handsome and rich.
Lizzy laughs at herself, excitedly.
Shewa and The Makeup Artist stare at her, dumbfounded.
Lizzy comes back to herself when she notices she’s the only one laughing.
So… who’s the photographer?
Lizzy looks at her fellow model, Shewa, expecting an answer.Shewa then notices Lizzy is expecting the answer from her, so she turns to The Makeup Artist, who is fiddling with her makeup kit, with an angry face on.
LIZZY (to Shewa)
You don’t know?
I… I don’t know o – it was my agent that hooked me up with the designer and the designer asked me to come here today for a photo shoot with her photographer.
LIZZY (to Makeup Artist)
So no one knows his name?
The Makeup Artist finally answers, reluctantly.
Lizzy brushes off The Makeup Artist’s rudeness with an excited smile.
Really?! He’s my boy na!
Lizzy sways into the Studio confidently.
The Makeup Artist looks on, expecting to overhear Ropo screaming at her.
Lizzy enters the Studio and sees Ropo.
Ropo! My baby!
Ropo’s puts on a frown as he sees Lizzy approaching him.
I dont like this, Lizzy…
Ropo! My darling…
Lizzy gets to him and opens her arms for a hug.
Ropo looks away and continues to grumble.
Lizzy then wraps her arms around him and talks softly.
Ropo, my sweetheart. Are you mad at me?
I don’t like this, you’re late. You’re trying to ruin my Photo shoot.
Come on, baby, you know I’ll never do that.
A short silence. Ropo finally looks Lizzy in the eyes.
She smiles back at him, invitingly, and keeps her hands on his waist.
You, this naughty girl.
Yes, I’m a naughty girl… but you like it when I’m naughty.
No, not this kind of naughty – not this kind.
They both giggle.
He reaches for her waist also.
Okay, for being the wrong kind of naughty, I owe you a bottle of Brandy after the shoot.
Hmmmmm… now you’re talking. And then?
He pulls her closer into him. She giggles in response.
Shewa walks into the room.
Continues in a bit…stay tuned!
