"THINK AGAIN MAN!"
FADE IN:
EXT. STREET-DAY
A blue Subaru, with a young woman, SHIRO, and man, BOB, drives past a middle aged slender man carrying seven sticks. The woman and man are laughing inside the car, with SHIRO’s laugh echoing as they drive past the man. The MAN is startled and drops his seven sticks, which scatter across the ground.
The car continues its journey zooming past a young, scruffy looking BOY carrying seven chics in a brown box. He stares at the car wistfully.

INT. BLUE SUBARU-DAY
BOB, A 28 year old dark skinned, broadshouldered, bulky guy in a rugby shirt is at the wheel. besides him is shiro, a 24 year old, light skinned plump pretty girl with curly hair leans back in her seat, next to him.

SHIRO
(chuckling)
..yeah I don’t know what was up with those two! Different wavelengths!

BOB
(grins and nods in agreement)

THE CAR SPUTTERS A LITTLE BIT. BOB LOOKS DOWN AT IT IN CONCERN. SHIRO IS LEANED BACK IN HER CHAIR WITH HER EYES CLOSED.

SHIRO
(Giggles)
Yeah…their own world…
(pauses and closes her eyes)
Lunch was fun, not just them, you and the food. Mmm that chicken was crazy..

BOB
(looks at her inquisitively)
Oh. You mean you liked it? Yeah it was okay.

SHIRO
(Opens her eyes wide)
Okay! Okay! No that chicken was crazy!

BOB looks at her curiously and opens his mouth to speak but is interrupted by Shiro


SHIRO
It was so amazing it tasted like..
(Interrupted by BOB as…)

THE CAR’S ENGINE SPUTTERS EVER SO SLIGHTLY.

BOB
Shit!

BOB Hits the steering wheel and clicks his tongue

SHIRO
(Looks at him quizzically)

BOB
Sorry…you were talking about the…the… what as it again?


SHIRO
(Pouts and sniffs)
It’s fine.
(Leans forward abruptly and smiles before she speaks)
Anyway!
(Tilts her head)
Was talking about the chicken. Last time I had chicken that good was when we were…we were…
we were…(pauses and squints)


BOB
(Looks at her out of the corner of his eye, and glances around the car with a slight frown on is face)

SHIRO
(Speaks abruptly, almost shouting, which makes a pensive Bob almost jump in his seat)
At java! Java! Remember we were outside…you were in blue, I was in pink…that day was great as well! Apart from the food! Wow! That was a while back! A while…
It was…
(pauses)
(speaks unexpectedly and loudly once again, BOB jumps slightly)
Feb this year! Feb? Wasn’t that like our first date? Wow? Seven months? That’s almost a year!

SHIRO hesitates slightly when she notices BOB is staring blankly at her

Not a year… almost…really…


BOB stares into the distance as he parks in front of a gate abruptly. His face furrows in concentration.

BOB
Yeah Feb was seven months ago…

BOB stares blankly in her general direction

SHIRO’s smile slowly turns into a cross between a smile and a frown.

We go back to BOB who is still staring blankly past her. He turns abruptly and hoots the horn.

We are now on SHIRO’s face, whose smile is frozen on her face.


SHIRO (V.O)

Oops! Maybe I shouldn’t have said that…”

BOB shrugs his shoulders and looks down and changes the radio station. As he turns the dial, we see SHIRO observing him out of the corner of her eye as she pretends to look out of the window.

SHIRO (V.O)
“Maybe he's been feeling trapped… maybe he thinks I want a lot more, do I?”

BOB finds a station and sits back abruptly.

BOB
Yeah, it’s been seven months!
(he looks around the car, with a slight scowl on his face)

SHIRO chuckles nervously.

SHIRO (V.O)
But, hey, I don’t know if I want this… I like my space…What are we doing anyway, it’s not like this is heading towards marriage? Or is it? Kui did get engaged after like six months…


As SHIRO thinks this, BOB restlessly looks around the car with a distant expression, looks down again past his steering wheel, frowns, and then hoots again.


BOB smiles at SHIRO briefly, then looks down again at the piece of paper dangling from the bottom of his steering wheel, growing more and more agitated the longer he looks down. Meanwhile we hear SHIRO’s V.O.



SHIRO (V.O )
He’s ok, no he’s not, He’s not jazzed. I shouldn’t have said that. Or maybe he’s just nervous. Or maybe he didn’t like the chicken? I think he said that once. So if we ever get married no chicken?


Dogs bark behind the gate, the sound of chickens clucking increases behind there as well. BOB hoots again.

SHIRO
(speaks abruptly)
You know chicken isn’t that important to me…

BOB looks at her, slightly bewildered.

SHIRO sticks her head out of the window

SHIRO
Njuguna open the gate!


BOB looks at her, shrugs and looks down suddenly again, scowling.

SHIRO (V.O)
Now he thinks I’m crazy! I shouldn’t have said that. Why did I bring up the seven months, and chicken? Chicken? Ok fine, he’s not prince charming, but I’m also kind of acting crazy. I like him though…but he thinks I’m crazy now!


BOB looks around the car, looking down past SHIRO and shakes his head and clicks his tongue.


SHIRO
Njuguna!

BOB opens his door suddenly and looks at it.

SHIRO (V.O)
What’s he doing? Leaving?

BOB closes the door and opens it again.

SHIRO (V.O)
Phew! He’s not? No, he is? What’s he doing? Say something Shiro!


SHIRO
(speaks suddenly, loudly and fast)

Bob! I’m sorry I’m acting all, you know… The seven months thing, I mean its great we’ve been together that long, but I only brought it up because I remembered the chicken…and even though you don’t like chicken you’re great..”

BOB stares at her blankly

BOB
(speaking slowly)
Ok.

SHIRO
I know, I know there’s no prince charming on a horse...It’s going to be a guy like you, the guy who doesn’t like chicken…but it’s cool..you know.”

BOB stares at her blankly

BOB
(speaking slowly)
Ok. I agree.

SHIRO
What are you thinking?

BOB
(Looks confused for a second)
I’m thinking that (pauses)
You’re right. Right?

SHIRO
(sighs)
Phew! I’m glad you get it!


A scruffy man opens the gate, two dogs bark happily at the car. Chickens cluck somewhere inside the compound.


BOB drives qickly into the compound and turns around.

SHIRO
Thanks for lunch babes. Thanks

BOB
Cool! No problem!

SHIRO looks at him expectantly.
BOB looks back at her.
SHIRO looks at the door.
BOB looks back at her.
SHIRO sighs and opens the door with a slight pout.

EXT: SHIRO’S COMPOUND - DAY

BOB drives off with SHIRO waving at his car.

As soon as BOB leaves, SHIRO calls her friend on her cell phone.
Seven chickens, cluck next to her feet.

SHIRO
Mary I think I blundered today with Bob.

INT: BOB’S CAR – DAY

BOB is just past the gate when he stops the car and looks back down at the steering wheel. His phone rings.

BOB

We! You guy, this thing is not working!”

EXT: SHIRO’S COMPOUND – DAY

SHIRO is still standing talking on the phone.

SHIRO
You don’t think he thinks I’m too much?

INT: BOB’S CAR – DAY

BOB

It’s only been seven months!

EXT: SHIRO’S COMPOUND – DAY
SHIRO is still standing listening on the phone.


INT: BOB’S CAR – DAY

BOB
Seven months!”

EXT: SHIRO’S COMPOUND – DAY


SHIRO
I hope the time thing won’t piss him off.
INT: BOB’S CAR – DAY

BOB
Seven months is not long you know…wait I have another call. I’ll call you back.

EXT: SHIRO’S COMPOUND – DAY
SHIRO is still standing listening on the phone.

INT: BOB’S CAR – DAY

BOB
Sema boy! What’s good? Was on the line with Mwangi! I’m having issues with my baby!


EXT: SHIRO’S COMPOUND – DAY
SHIRO is still standing listening on the phone.


INT: BOB’S CAR – DAY

BOB
Remember Feb? Si that’s when I first took her there...and now she’s letaing issues!”

EXT: SHIRO’S COMPOUND – DAY
SHIRO is still standing listening on the phone.


INT: BOB’S CAR – DAY

BOB
She’s not acting right! And I’m handling her well… Only seven months ago and now all this! Aki I’m never going to take babie to Mwangi’s !


BOB grabs a hold of the white piece of paper dangling form his steering wheel and looks at it. We see the car service details on the piece of paper.

Ati he serviced it! The steering wheel, the clutch! The passenger mirror is crooked! It’s all messed!

What a con! Where are you?
(Pause)
Watching the game? I just dropped Shiro so I’m those sides. Will fika in a few.”

EXT: SHIRO’S COMPOUND – DAY
SHIRO

I just wish I knew what he was thinking.

INT: BOB’S CAR – DAY

BOB
Oh Shiro? Well…hmm
(pauses)
Shiro, Shiro is really crazy…

The man holding seven sticks passes by BOB’s car, seen in his rear view mirror.

BOB
She’s crazy about chicken

EXT: SHIRO’S COMPOUND – DAY
The seven chicken circle Shiro’s feet clucking, as she still listens on her phone.




















FADE OUT.
