[Things became tense between Thabo and his stepson Zero.]
Zero: Mom can I have ten rand?
Marth: For what reason, for smoke?
Zero: Did this thing of yours tell you that?
Marth: Who is the thing you are talking about?
Thabo: I’m your father son.
Zero: You are nothing to me.
Thabo: Now you are out of order.
Zero: Yes, I’m out of here.
[Thabo visited his parents to talk about his life and his stepson.]
Sharon: You have your own children, Lizzy and Thandi.
Frans: Yes, those are your real children.
Thabo: Please my parents let’s not be on that, it is in the past.
Sharon: How can you say that? They are still alive.
Thabo: I don’t even know if they still remember me, they were young. Only Zero knows me.
Frans: Son, I can take you to them.
[Thelma and Thandi are playing outside when they get unexpected visitors. Lizzy shocked.]
Frans: Hi, children. Can we speak to someone older than you in the house?
Thandi and Thelma: Aftermoon sir, Lizzy is in the house.
Lizzy: Thelma who are you talking to?
Thandi: This old man wants to talk to you.
Lizzy: Thandi, Thelma get in the house now.
Thabo: I am sorry my child.
Thandi: Don’t worry, she has been like this since my parents died.
Thabo: I am your father. The blood parent.
Thandi and Lizzy: You are a liar.
Lizzy: He left us alone. He didn’t care about us.
Thandi: WHAT ABOUT MY MOTHER, DID SHE DIE?
Lizzy: Yes, I am sorry I lied.
[Thabo and Frans arrives home. They find Sharon sad and Marth was there too.]
Thabo: What’s wrong here?
Sharon: Where is your father?
Thabo: He is coming.
Frans: Wow, Marth is nice to see you here.
Sharon: And she got bad news too.
Thabo: What do you mean, are you ok?
Marth: Yes I am.
Sharon: Zero is arrested for theft.
Marth: I should have given him that money. It’s all you fault.
Thabo: I did not think…
Marth: Yes, that’s your problem – you do not think.
Thabo: I’m sorry. Let’s get him out.
Marth: Like even if you care about him.
Sharon: Calm down, both of you.
Frans: Let’s think, maybe we can find a solution.
Let’s chat: What do you think will happen next?
