    I dont think I can complain.

    Tasha

    No complaints, just a day in my head I tell you,you will

    Run away.

    Gwen

    Then you need a psycho evaluation before its to late.

    Tasha

    If it can get my mum off my back ill gladly take it.

    Gwen

    What do you mean, is she mistreating you?

    TashaNot really she is just unbelievable. She wants to run my

    Whole life!like what I wear, what I watch on tv,even who

    I have to hang out with.am just sick of it.

    About you.by the time I left everybody was mocking me.

    Lukundo

    I miss you any more coz am coming back home.

    Chanda

    Longest two weeks of my life.i wish we can just get married

    Now.

    Lukundo

    judges will steal you from me ill do something really bad

    to him

    lukundo

    chanda

    For you.

    That means, just hearing you say that and my heart is all

    For you am not going to change my mind about it or turn on

    You never.just promise you always love me.

    SHE RAISES HERSELF TO LOOK HIM IN THE EYE AS HE LOOKS BACK AT HER

    Chanda

    EXT___DAMDO HIGH,SCHOOL YARD____DAY

    BACK WITH THE GIRLS WHO HAVE JUST BEEN JOINED BY BRENDA,WHO LOOKS

    LIKE SHES REALLY NOT HAVING A GOOD DAY.

    Tasha

    You look like a woman in distress, is there trouble in

    Paradise?

    Brenda

    Just some idiot whose trying to play with my mind.

    Gwen

    Relationships now that is more complicated than the hardest

    Mathematical equations.

    Brenda

    I really cant understand,some men are just plain dogs in

    Clothes.hes got a wife, a girlfriend and on top of that he

    Wants a mistress.what is it they really want.

    Tasha

    I think men are just the most selfish animals on the planet

    Period.

    Gwen,

    Curious

    So you mean you know some one whose going out wwith a

    Married person

    Brenda

    And is there any problem with that.

    Gwen

    Halo every thing is wrong,how can some one in their right

    Might go out with a married person,ethically and morally

    Its not right.

    Brenda

    Then I should be guilty as hell.

    BRENDA PICKS UP HER BAG AND STARTS TO MOVE AS A PUZZLED GWEN FOLLOW

    Gwen

    Wait a minute you mean to tell me the person going out

    With a married person is you?

    Tasha

    I think its quite adventourous.

    Gwen

    Adventourous, what can be so adventourous about breaking

    Some ones home.how would you feel if some one did that to

    You.

    Brenda

    Whats the big deal, all I know is that nothing tastes better

    Than the forbidden fruit.

    gwen

    I never imagined you of all people could do such a thingWhere is your pride,your self worth.

    BY NOW THE GIRLS ARE IN CLASS SITTED JUST NEXT TO EACH OTHER AS

    GWEN STILL INSISTS ON GETTING AN EXPLANATION OUT OF BRENDA

    Brenda

    Sometimes there is just more to life than pride and self

    Worth.

    Gwen

    Brenda

    Money.

    Tasha

    FROM WIDE ANGLE WE CAN SEE EVER STANDING BY HERSELF, WAITING

    FOR MOSES.AFTER LOOKING AT HER WATCH FOR THE THIRD TIME ALMOST

    GIVING UP THE WAIT WE CUT TO A MEDUIM,SHOT OF BOTH OF THEM.AS

    EVER GETS EXCITED AND GIVES MOSES A HUGE HUG BUT HE DDOESNT

    SEEM TO BE INTERESTED

    Ever

    I was beginning to think you are not coming

    Moses

    Casually

    So am here what is it you want to see me about.

    Ever

    Hurt

    Is that all you can say.through out the holiday you never

    Bothered to see me

    Moses

    That is because I knew you were too busy with your born

    Again nonsenses

    Ever

    I missed you, I make an effort to see you. To know how

    You are doing, and so what! is all you can say.fofrgive

    Me for being the caring type.

    SHE TURNS AND GIVES HIM HER BACK

    Moses

    Look I didnt mean to offend you, its just that this

    All born again thing is comfusing, I dont even know

    Where I stand.

    SHE TURNS TO FACE HIM

    Ever

    Oh now I see what this is all about. I thought you

    Understood Moses, sex is not what is going to make

    Our relationship stronger, its about love, respect

    And commitment to each other. Sex is such a sacred

    Thing that is why it is reserved for the marriage bed

    And I cant just give it away, not any more

    Moses

    See where the problem is. Its always about you and what you

    Want, does it ever occur to you that ive got needs of my own.

    Ever

    What is that suppose to mean.it wanst just meant to be

    are you breaking up with me.

    Bwalya

    Look am sure there is so many good boys out there,who

    Want to abstain,but for me I need action and if you cant

    Give then why should I sit around,no way ill see you

    Around.

    Ever

    Desperately

    Moses! Moses

    SHE TRIES TO HOLD HIM AND STOP HIM FROM LEAVING BUT HE PUSHES

    HER OFF.FRUSTRATED SHE REMAINS ALONE FOR A WHILE STILL IN TEARS

    AS WE FADE HER OFF

    EXT__DAMBO HIGH___ESTABLISHING_____DAY

    INT__DAMBO HIGH___PSU ROOM____DAY

    TEACHER MONICA IS TALKING TO STUDENTS ABOUT THE CONCERT THEY ARE

    PLANNING ON HAVING,ON THE BOARD THEY HAVE NAMES AND SOME OF THE

    ACTIVITIES WHICH WILL BE TAKING PLACE,

    Monica

    Ok I think we have every thing covered everything on the

    Agenda, what else is needed.

    Amos

    We just have to look into hiring a proper pa system coz

    The one we have is not dependable.

    Monica

    Any ideas of how much that will cost, just bare in mind that

    The school will have to approve, before they give out any

    Money.

    Amos

    Ill look around and see how much it will cost us.

    Monica

    Great, anything else just remember that the purpose of

    This function is to encourage positive living and behavior

    Change amongst the pupils, it has to be entertaining as

    Well as educative, in short who ever is participating

    Should have a positive message and I think this will be

    The best opportunity to get more students in the(psu)
