Though love is life for lovers but when it breaks then it really
Sometimes the way of love doesn’t go smooth and sadness takes
the rule of hearts which is really unexpected.

promised to be with me for the rest of my life.

OLIVIA: Gael, please don’t leave me, please don’t abandon me
right now (she looks into his eyes but he pushes her away)
Gael please, I need you and someone else needs you right now.
GAEL: Olivia! Olivia it is over between the two of us can’t you get
it? How else do you want me to tell you?
I don’t need you anymore, I don’t want to see you ever again in
my life. Go to your sugar daddy. Leave my poor life alone.

(Gael hisses and pushes her down. He turns his back to leave but
he is restricted by her voice)
OLIVIA: Gael please don’t go. Gael! Gael!
GAEL: (unable to look back as tears fill his eyes) Olivia please
forget about me.

kisses her forehead. She holds his hands)
GAEL: I love you. I love you so much dear. Pump yourself up.

cheeks. This time around he leaves her without stopping or

MARY: Olivia C’mon is okay Let’s go home.
OLIVIA: Mary please go call him back.
MARY: Over my dead body.

(The two laugh)
OLIVIA’S RESIDENCE- NIGHT
Olivia and Mary are seen conversing. Olivia is crying deeply
while Mary tries to console her.
MARY: Olivia, please stop crying.
OLIVIA: Mary I wish I could stop myself.
Mary, it is very painful to be abandoned by a man whom you love
so much in this life.
MARY: But right now it seems Gael doesn’t need you in his life
OLIVIA: But I need him, my baby also needs a father….
MARY: Olivia please don’t tell me that bullshit. Is he the only guy
There are many guys out there waiting to have a beautiful
princess like you for a wife and not….
OLIVIA: Mary, have you ever been in love before, do you even
know what love is?
MARY: Yes, I have and also yes I do know.
OLIVIA: The problem is that as much as I can’t force him to love
me, I can’t force myself to stop loving him.
MARY: (sigh) I’m tongue-tied, I don’t know what else to say
Olivia, I think you need some rest.
The doctor said you shouldn’t stress yourself that much.
OLIVIA: Am not stressing myself, I am only thinking about Gael.
How is he doing right now, has he eaten or is he thinking about
me, who knows?
MARY: I just feel like hating you right now.
You are the one in danger and yet you are still worrying dead
about that nonsense who doesn’t deserve you at all….
OLIVIA: (stands up instantly & yells at her)
Gael isn’t a bad person. He isn’t nonsense… He is just angry with
me because he thinks I have been sleeping with Thelma’s
(she pauses and holds her belly) my stomach, my stomach.
MARY: (stands up and holds her) olivy are you okay?
What is wrong with you Olivia talk to me what is it?
OLIVIA: Call the doctor. (she collapses)
MARY: No no No ooo (she screams) Olivia please don’t do this to
me please. Olivia!
GAEL’S ROOM- DAY
Gael hears a knock on his door, he stands up and opens the door
as Olivia’s friend Mary comes in.
GAEL: Mary Good Morning Is Olivia back home now? Please sit
on the bed.
MARY: Actually, I am here to deliver this letter to you (looks away
and brings an envelope from
her handbag) she wrote this for you (she hands it over to him and
sits on the bed as he reads it out to
GAEL: Hi sweetheart, I don’t know why I am writing this, but I
really hope that this letter never gets
to you, because if it does that means I am dead (he pauses in
shock and looks at Mary who isn’t looking
at him) and it also means I never had the chance to show you
how much I really did love you.
You are the beat of my heart, the soul in my body.
You have shown me what love is and what it feels like
to be loved.
Every time you kissed me and our lips touched so softly, I could
feel it when our hearts get so closed they are beating as one.
You are the person I know I could turn to when I needed help,
you are the person I looked at when I needed to smile and you
are the person I went to when I needed a hug…
(he turns to Mary) Is this one of her jokes?
(no response from her, he continues)
GAEL: (tears trickle down as he continues)
Each night I could go to bed, kiss my fingers, then touch your
I would put a photo of you over my bed so you could look over
me as I slept, well, now it is my turn to look over you as you
sleep and keep you safe in your dreams.
I’ll always be looking over you to make sure you are safe and do
not worry at all your baby is safe with me Gael.
Love always and forever, Olivia.
(he kneels down and weeps bitterly)
MARY: (Not still looking at him)
she died as a result of severe Preeclampsia and it was too late for
GAEL: Baby? What baby are you talking about?
MARY: Your baby Gael. She had your child lived in her womb for
GAEL: My girlfriend? She never told me she was with my child.
MARY: (speaks in anger as she turns to him)
Yes, your girlfriend, she came to tell you, you walked out on her.
She was ill for two
good weeks after that day, did you care to look for her?
Her phone was stolen that same day you broke her heart, she
tried reaching you with my phone did you care to return her calls?
No (she shakes her head as tears fill her eyes) I hate you so
I hate you with so much passion.
(she goes out and slams the door behind her angrily)
GAEL: (screams) I caused your death. I am responsible for your
(he cries out) Oh God I hate this world, I hate myself.
I wish I had come like a tree or never came at all.
Olivia please take me with you
please my love, I want to be where you are. I want to take care of you and my baby.
Am very sorry my love.
(he bends down and cries louder)
(A voice speaks) do you really mean those word?
Gael: You are dead!!! You are dead!!! Olivia please forgive me,
am sorry don’t kill me please
Olivia: am not going to kill you.
Gael: Mary! Mary! ghost, ghost (pointing at Olivia’s direction),
can you see her? Help me beg her not to
kill me please.
Mary: Yes, I can see her.
Olivia: Am not dead. Well maybe I was some hour’s ego before
Mary brought you the latter.
Gael: How? How is that possible?
Olivia: I was on the journey when I heard a voice calling my
name, when I looked, it was my grand ma,
I was so happy to see her after so many years, but she was
angry at me so she pushed me away. I never
knew why she did that, but I kept on running back to her telling
her how much I missed her but she said
something to me that got me angry and I ran away from her
thinking she will call me back but she
didn’t and that’s how I woke up.
Gael: what did she say?
Olivia: she said” I don’t miss you” but now I know that she didn’t
mean that, she only said that to make
me feel bad.
Gael: (cried out) am sorry Olivia, I should have trusted you, I was
Mary: yes, you were really foolish
Gael: I was so foolish to ever give a third party space to come in-
I lost you once but I will never lose you again please I promise to
love you and the baby with my life.
(they both cried and hug each other)
