TALES OF FATIMA Episode 2
‘Fatima, wai da gaske kike?’ I asked Fatima.
‘Of course, why?’, she replied.
‘But you know our people, you know the criticisms that will follow this your decision. How did you even come to this decision in the first place?
‘I came across this advert for a movie audition. I didn’t think much of it at first. But the flyer kept reappearing in my face, and so I thought I should give it a trial. Besides, it’s not like I have any other job. And so, I went for the audition and I was selected for a minor part. I was disappointed at first, but as long as I’m getting small change.
‘Oh so, you decided this because of money? You should know better now, there is no money in the entertainment industry, It’s all showbiz’. I replied.
‘I know now, I didn’t say it’s because of the money. I meant, I don’t mind acting especially if I’ll be getting small change. And It’s like you’ve forgotten, I DO NOT HAVE A JOB!!. Well you are doing something that brings in money for you, so how will you understand?’
‘Oh come on, what are you saying? How much does the freelancing job brings in. I am as hopeless as you are. But do you think your parents will accept? You know how sensitive Hajiya can be about this kind of things.’
‘Wallahi Zainab, I don’t even know how to approach Mama with this news. Maybe I’ll make sure Baba is around when ill tell her. I am sure Baba will not mind. And I know he will help me to convince her. I’m just tired of sitting at home jobless and having to ask Mama for money all the time. I want to earn for myself.’
‘I understand you Fatima. Amma kar ki damu. I’m sure everything will fall in place. But you have to promise me something’
‘What is it?
I’m sure it might sound crazy coming from me to you, but please Fatima, if eventually you settle things and get this job please do not betray our trust. No matter what it takes, do not become desperate to the extent where you will have to be asked to exchange favors for roles.’
‘I know and I understand and In Shaa Allahu, ba zai kai ga haka ba. Thank you so much Zainab’.
‘Haba, anything for you, like always’.
