ALIYA

The story

By Minna Davies

MUSIC STUDIO – DAY

BOSE is rehearsing with her sax, Mrs ANITA listening on her table.

ALIYA enter.

Mrs ANITA signals to BOSE to stop.

MRS ANITA

Oh Aliya, come over. How is your

leg.

ALIYA

My leg? Oh good. I am ready now ma.

MRS ANITA

Well. How do I say this, You where

away for a while, and a lot of

things change. I am sorry dear I was

not sure you were ready. I thought

you bailed out. So, Bose has your

place.

Aliya’s face goes dim. Lost in her thoughts

ALIYA (V.O.)

First she took my boyfriend and

now my chance. Great.

SITTING ROOM – NIGHT

ALIYA sitting on the dinning licking a bowl of ice cream.

ALIYA

My life is beautiful… And she

thinks she is better than me. Well

whatever… she can go ahead, play for

the school. I will just lick my

ice cream. I bet she is not having

one right now. Oh I am sad. I hate my

life.

Ramat enters, goes to the kitchen and comes out with a glass of

water.

RAMAT

What is wrong with you dear?

ALIYA

Nothing.

MUSA

Okay.

She wants to leave.

ALIYA

You are just going to leave.

RAMAT

I know I hurt you baby, but

If you don’t give me a chance,

All I can do is try.

ALIYA

I am no more playing for the

competition.

RAMAT

You are worried.

ALIYA

Well, yes.

RAMAT

Then do something about it.

ALIYA

What?

RAMAT

Fight for it. If you want it that bad

fight for it.

ALIYA

I can’t.

RAMAT

Let’s make a deal if you play for

your school.

ALIYA

We would leave here, leave everything

RAMAT

Leave… everything? It’s not

that easy to leave.

ALIYA

Yeah. But we can. A new beginning

She leaves.

ALIYA (CONT’D)

Thought as much.

PRESENT DAY

DANCE STUDIO – EVENING

ALIYA steps in between their rehearsals. As the door shuts,

all eyes focused on her.

ADE

From the top.

Aliya goes to sit in the corner and watched them rehearse.

ADE (CONT’D)

Aliya, come over. Hope you remember

the steps

ALIYA

I wish I forgot.

ADE

You are lucky Jane called me to

explain everything. How would your

grandma die and you not tell me.

ALIYA

(confused)

My grand ma.

ADE

Yeah she said you went for her

burial.

ALIYA

Yeah. So sad, thanks.

ALIY’S ROOM – EVENING

ALIYA and JANE.

JANE

Wow I was so worried about you.

ALIYA

Yeah. I went to bury my grandma,

JANE laughing.

JANE

What should I have said?

ALIYA

Anything.

JANE

You know I don’t lie well.

JANE phone beeps, it’s a message. She reads it and blushes

JANE (CONT’D)

Awwww

ALIYA

Why are you blushing?

JANE

Ade.

ALIYA

What, you and Ade I have been away

for how long and…

JANE

Let’s not talk about me. You never told

me about it.

Aliya became firm and serious.

ALIYA

Don’t want to talk about it.

JANE

Okay. You don’t have to serious.

ALIYA

It’s not funny Jane.

JANE

I am sorry. So

STREET – NIGHT – ALIYA’S DREAM

Aliya is walking on a lonely street and very terrified. A foot wearing a boot walking behind her, she turns the flash on her phone and hastily turns to see who is there, but the space is empty.

VOICE

(faint echo)

Hi

She turns and jumps right on the ground terrified. She looks up just to see herself all bloody with  axe with her.
