139. INT. MR. BEN’S RES. NIGHT
BEN in the BED ROOM working with his LAPTOP while his WIFE sets the MEAL on the DINNING TABLE and after that, she goes to inform her HUSBAND.
Honey, diner is ready.
Ignores her initially as he continues working with his laptop.
Are you blind? Can’t you see I’m busy?
But honey, you’re a married man; you shouldn’t be bringing your work load home. I’m your wife; I have got feelings, you know?
Sometimes I wonder why I was so stupid in the first place to marry a woman like you, tell me what’s the joy of being married to you. For over a decade of marriage now, you can’t even conceive let alone give birth.
Honey, why are you talking to me like this? Am I God that gives kids? You know it’s not my fault. The doctor has certified me fertile.
You’re the one that has the problem not me. For your information some years ago before I married you more than five girls have had abortions for me, I’m healthy man and you know it.
…He angrily leaves the bed room.
God! Why have you forsaken me? Why have you decided to shut your ears to my cries and pleas… answer me Lord! …. I’m tired of being labeled barren… remember you word says ‘none shall be barren’ I’m your daughter. Please harken to my voice of supplication please Lord.
140. INT. SWIFT COMMUNICATIONS. DAY
The BOARD of DIRECTORS convene in the COMPANY’S CONFERENCE ROOM for a meeting with the MD/CEO
Sincerely, it hurts me so badly to sit here this morning to tell you that this company is on the brink of Collapse. All the strategies that we applied to save her, all failed abysmally; the most painful, being the recent advertisement campaign that we paid quite a reasonable amount of money.
Mrs. Williams, I must tell you, you contributed to this problem we’re into now.
