CHIOMA is seen talking to a phone booth operator. Chioma is a girl of about 20. She looks simple yet beautiful. She gets the information from the call operator and moves ahead.

Woman (V.O.)

Mind how you behave while staying with that young man. He is a very powerful Christian. Try not to wear trousers or any other indecent looking dress while staying with him. When you finish your post jamb and come back here, you can become a sister again.

Chioma (V. O.)

I have not spent one hour here and my phone is gone. I wonder if this aunty Fiona’s good boy is really a good boy. He might be the one causing this whole shit.

LINDA enters the hostel gate. She is a very sexy-looking 25 year old girl. She also dressed sexually. She looks around and begins to walk towards the hostel entrance. She meets NNEKA who is washing at the entrance.

Linda

(to Nneka)

Excuse me.

Nneka

(looking up)

Yes?

LINDA

How can I get to room 60?

NNEKA

How can I have all the room number offhand?

Nneka points to the end of the corridor.

NNEKA (CONT’D)

You can start checking from there.

LINDA

(eyes her)

Well… intelligent people do have room numbers offhand. Guess… never mind.

(Pause)

Thanks.

Linda gets to the end of the corridor and begins to search for number 60. She starts from room 100 and after about 9 doors, gets to room 60.

Nneka continues with her washing before Emeka appears from upstairs. Nneka notices that Emeka is sweating.

Emeka

(proudly)

I am waiting for a girl.

NNEKA

(mockingly)

Is that why you are sweating?

EMEKA

I… was… um…

(pause)

Help me bring her to my room if she comes.

NNEKA

Yes sir.

Emeka turns to head back upstairs before IFEOMA enters. Ifeoma is a very attractive girl in her twenties. Emeka is fascinated by Ifeoma’s beauty. For a brief moment, Emeka and Ifeoma stare at each other. Ifeoma then give him a sexual smile. Emeka smiles back.

EMEKA

(smiling and whispering to Nneka)

That’s her.

NNEKA

(looks at Ifeoma)

Her?

EMEKA

(proudly)

Yes.

NNEKA

That is Sabari’s new chick.

EMEKA

Are you sure?

Immediately, Ifeoma stops in front of a door. She knocks at the door then turns to Nneka and Emeka.

Ifeoma

Hello guys.

The door opens and she enters. A boy comes out of that room. He smiles at Nneka and Emeka, them gives them a thumb’s up and enters the room again.

NNEKA

Don’t you know the girl?

EMEKA

Well… I… they both look alike.

(Embarrassed)

See you.

NNEKA

Okay.

As Emeka walks away…

NNEKA (CONT’D)

I will recognize her for you and bring her to your room.

Later

Nneka is still washing as Chioma enters. She gets to where Nneka is washing.

CHIOMA

Hello.

NNEKA

Hello. He has been expecting you.

CHIOMA

LINDA

(smiles sexually)

Now?

UCHE

Yes.

LINDA

Well…

(pause)

Don’t you have any romantic song here?

UCHE

I don’t listen to those types of songs.

LINDA

Why?

UCHE

I don’t like them.

LINDA

As he opens the door, he finds Uche standing at the door.

Sabari

(shouting)

Pastor… do you want to join us?

Uche

Not now. Can you give me a Marvin Gaye CD or Westlife or any other one.

SABARI

Come in and check…

UCHE

(cuts in)

Please just help me get one. I don’t feel like coming in.

SABARI

(smiling)

Pastor… pastor…

Sabari goes in and leaves the door open. Uche closes it. After a while, Sabari opens the door and hands over a couple of Cds to Uche.

(Long pause)

Does it require any form of literature.

CHIOMA

(surprised as she looks at him)

Of course.

EMEKA

Emeka is lying on the bed asleep. Chioma yawns as she closes the book she is reading. She looks at Emeka.

Chioma goes and wakes Emeka up. Emeka wakes.

CHIOMA

Are we not going to pray this night?

EMEKA

(surprised)

Is it part of the show?

CHIOMA

(surprised)

Yes of course.

EMEKA

Okay, you lead in the… prayers?

Chioma kneels down placing her head on the bed. Emeka looks at Chioma buttocks. Her position makes her ass tilt up in a very sexual way.

EMEKA (V.O.) (CONT’D)

I think she is very ready now.

CHIOMA

Let us pray.

EMEKA

Were you told that I am… a virgin?

CHIOMA

(looks up)

Somehow.

EMEKA

(smiles)

Okay, let’s continue from where we stopped.

Chioma goes back to her praying position. Emeka places his head on Chioma’s buttocks. Chioma doesn’t move.

UCHE

(more to himself)

Time to go to bed.

LINDA

Is it?

UCHE

(looks at her)

Yes.

Linda smiles at him and he smiles back hesitantly. Linda stands up and pulls off her top. She is wearing just her bra. Uche stares at her a long while, and then it takes a couple of seconds for Linda’s action to sink in.

UCHE (CONT’D)

I bind… I cast… The power… or powers of both your nice looking breasts and bra… I cast out of this room…

Linda is shocked. For the first time, she is really confused.

UCHE (CONT’D)

(raising his voice)

No… no… no…. Go and tell them you didn’t see me… I am invisible to your powers…

Mike (V.O.)

He might act very strange. Don’t mind him. Just do what you went to do, collect his money and come back here.

Uche continues his binding and casting.

CUT TO:

I/E. hostel corridor – nIGHT

REBECCA is coming back from fellowship. She hears Uche’s voice. She goes to check out what’s wrong. She gets to the door and knocks. Nobody answers. She knocks again. After a while, Uche opens the door sweating. Rebecca is surprised to see Uche sweating.

Rebecca

Bro. Uche, why are you sweating?

Uche

(forcing a smile)

Praying.

Rebecca tries to look into the room but Uche blocks her.

REBECCA

You didn’t come for fellowship today?

UCHE

I was waiting for my visitor… the one I told you about.

REBECCA

Okay.

They both keep silent for a while as Rebecca tries to look inside the room again and Uche blocks her again.

Good night.

G-string… g-string… you can’t entice me…

Uche looks closely.

UCHE (CONT’D)

The ass is very beautiful… I like it…

(getting carried away)

I like it… it looks succulent…

(realizes what he just said)

But it cannot… it might… but not today entice me…

Linda is becoming very embarrassed by now.

LINDA

(shouting)

What is wrong with you? That you are a virgin doesn’t make you impotent.

UCHE

I am not impotent… I cannot be impotent…

LINDA

Why did you invite me then? Have I not made enough passes?

UCHE

I invited a student into my room… not a more amorous reincarnation of Delilah…

Linda begins to put her clothes back on.

CUT TO:

INT. eMEKA’S ROOM – nIGHT

Emeka’s head is still resting on Chioma’s buttocks. They are both silent. After a while, Chioma breaks the silence.

CHIOMA

We are through.

EMEKA

Okay.

Emeka stands up and looks at Chioma. Chioma is so confused by now. She lies down on the bed. After a while, Emeka goes, lies beside her and holds her.

CHIOMA

Are you trying to seduce me?

EMEKA

Am I?

Chioma stands up.

CHIOMA

(angrily)

Are you doing this because you are squatting me till I take my exam on Wednesday?

EMEKA

(laughing)

Exam?

CHIOMA

Don’t act like you don’t know what I am talking about.

EMEKA

This your style is becoming very very boring.

Emeka goes and opens his box. Chioma is confused. Emeka collects some money and drops them on the bed.

EMEKA (CONT’D)

Take the money and leave. I thought you would be straight about this whole thing. Mike will get someone else for me.

CHIOMA

Are you confusing me for someone else?

EMEKA

Just go.

He goes and opens the door. Chioma doesn’t move.

EMEKA (CONT’D)

Please leave.

CHIOMA

Uche, this is not fair. My aunt said you were a good…

EMEKA

Uche? Who is Uche?

(pause)

Pastor?

Emeka begins to laugh. He looks at Chioma as he continues laughing.

EMEKA (CONT’D)

You came to see pastor?

CHIOMA

You are not Uche in Maths?

EMEKA

(shakes his head)

Nah nah nah…

(slowly)

Emeka, Med Surg.

CHIOMA

Which room is Emeka’s?

EMEKA

(pause)

Room 90.

They are both silent for a while.

EMEKA (CONT’D)

I will show you Uche’s room.

Chioma

I will pack my things.

As Chioma packs her things Emeka keeps looking at her. He tries so hard to say something to her but can’t seem to open his mouth. Finally…

EMEKA

Don’t um… say anything about what happened here… especially the virginity part… to Uche… or anyone…

Chioma stops her packing and looks at him then smiles.

CHIOMA

I won’t.

EMEKA

Okay.

They both stay still and silent for a while.

CHIOMA

Let’s talk?

Emeka looks at her.

Uche looks at her suspiciously not very convinced.

UCHE

Okay.

Uche looks at Emeka. He points to Sandra.

UCHE (CONT’D)

Your second girlfriend.

Uche hands over Sabari’s cds to Emeka.

UCHE (CONT’D)

She borrowed those from Sabari. Return them later.

Uche looks at Chioma one last time then leaves. After Uche closes the door behind him, there is silence for a long while.

CHIOMA

(to no one in particular)

UCHE

Okay? Your bag?

CHIOMA

Well… I want to stay with Emeka for a while.

UCHE

Why?

CHIOMA

He seems so lost. Let him help him a little. A little direction… may be.

UCHE

You want to give him erection or direction?

CHIOMA

Direction…

UCHE

And um… you think someone who can’t her direction can help someone else…

CHIOMA

It doesn’t matter. Let me just help him a bit.

At this point, Linda comes out from Emeka’s room. He gets to where Uche and Chioma are.

Linda keeps walking away.

CHIOMA

Is it not too late for her to go home?

UCHE

(calling out to Linda)

Hello…

UCHE (CONT’D)

She said it is too late for you to go home.

(pause)

You can sleep in my room.

LINDA

Okay. Thanks.

UCHE

But no huh huh huh… you know what I mean?

Aunty Fiona said you always say the truth.

UCHE

He is.

CHIOMA

Is he studying Medicine?

UCHE

Yes.

CHIOMA
