Sandra helps her friend get over herself

Inside Tiawo and Kehinde’s home

We hear the sound of the television in the background. Taiwo calls out to Kehinde to hurry up. Footfalls as Kehinde arrives. She apologises for delaying but that she needed to get her makeup right for the party.

Taiwo complains that she always makes him late. He tells her to give her the car key. Kehinde wonders why. Taiwo replies that he’s driving. Kehinde says he has no license to drive. Taiwo asks if she expects that he would allow he, his younger sister, to drive him when his friends are coming with them. Kehinde replies that she is the one that passed the driving test and not him.

She would not allow him. Taiwo replies that she knows very well that he can drive the driving test that he failed notwithstanding. It is not cool for her to drive him. His friends will mock him. He asks for the key. We hear a scuffle as they struggle. Kehinde protests that he’s injuring her. We hear sound of keys jingling. Kehinde cries out in pain. Taiwo dangles the key and tells her that she needs to stop trying to engage him in

Kehinde says that their dad would hear of this. Taiwo bluffs that their dad has gone out and so what even if he did know. His phone rings. He picks it up. It’s his friend. He says they’re on their way. He tells her to make up her mind whether she’s coming or not.

On the Itagigi Highway

Music is playing from the car stereo. We hear excited voices singing to the tune of Korede Bello’s “Na God Win”. Kehinde is seating in the back seat. We hear her cautioning Taiwo not to overspeed. Taiwo laughs and asks if she’s afraid. One of the friends tells her to be calm as there is a difference between a man driving and a woman driving. Moreover, they’re almost late for the party. Another friend raises his voice agitatedly that Taiwo should slow down as there is a road safety vehicle ahead.

Taiwo quickly tells is friend who is in the front seat beside him to strap his seat belt before the road safety people see them. We hear the sound of a road safety officer off mike telling Taiwo to park. Taiwo panics and tells Kehinde to please give him her driving license quickly. One of the friends tells him to speed off. Kehinde shouts that he should park. We hear

Kehinde shouts that he should park. We hear sound of siren drawing closer and a voice saying commanding Kehinde to park. Another friend screams out that Kehinde should watch out. We hear sound of tyres screeching as Kehinde applies the brake. This is followed by a crash and screaming voices of Kehinde, Taiwo and their friends. The music of Korede bello plays on.

On the Itagigi Highway- along the road-side

We hear Taiwo’s agitated voice calling for help. Sound of car doors opening and closing. The siren gradually stops. We hear the voice of the road safety officer calling for an ambulance with his walkie-talkie. He reports that there has been an accident on the Itangidi highway involving some young people and a girl needs urgent medical attention. Taiwo is heard crying and calling Kehinde’s name frantically.

The road safety officers say they need to tear Kehinde’s clothes so they can try to locate the wounds and stop the bleeding. They proceed and give her aid.
