(Two days later Gloria and James returns from their getaway)
(During supper that evening)
Gloria: I wonder what we did to deserve such a mouth-watering meal.
James: My stomach is even complaining.
Gloria: It must be surprised too. (Laughs)
Thapelo: Come on, this is just a welcome home meal.
James: And we’re not complaining, this is very delicious.
Thapelo: So are you guys saying that I can cook?
Gloria: No, nobody is saying anything.
(Knocks on the door)
Gloria: Expecting anyone?
Thapelo: No, who could it be this time?
James: Maybe he invited his girlfriend, and she’s late.
Thapelo: No, come on. I didn’t invite anyone.
Gloria: Ok, I will get it.
(She runs to the door and opens)
Police officer: Good evening, we’re very sorry to disturb your lovely family time.
Gloria: Come in.
Police officer: We are looking for Abednego Tumbai.
Gloria: Sorry, Abed who?
Police officer: Abednego Tumbai.
Thapelo: Well, you must have come to the wrong address, we don’t have any Abednego in this house or know anyone in particular.
Police: We have verified the address, and we know why we are here.
Gloria: No, check it again.
Police officer: Seems like you’re also not familiar with the name, Okay. We are looking for James Ngwenya, the driver of a Yellow Mazda 323. Does that ring a bell?
(Gloria and her son looks at each other surprisingly)
James: I am James, and how can I help you gentlemen?
Police officer: Oh, thanks Mr. Is it Ngwenya or Tumbai? (Silence) Ok, let’s not waste anyone’s time. Can we please search your car Mr?
James: Go down the passage, the car is on your right.
(The police heads to the garage)
Thapelo: What’s going on here?
Gloria: And who’s Abednego Dubai or whoever they want?
James: Why are you guys asking me?
Gloria: They are here because of you.
(The police comes back with a plastic bag)
Police officer: Surprise, look what we found in your car Mr Tumbai.
(They show him the two guns and face cloth with blood)
Gloria: Guns in my house?
James: I don’t know where that came from, aren’t those yours? I swear I don’t have a gun.
Police officer: I’m sorry, but you have to come with us to our station.
James: I did nothing wrong, I am innocent. You have to believe me. Honey tell them that I am innocent please. This must be a mistake or maybe I’m being framed.
Police officer: Well, it’s not a mistake. And we both know, right Abednego? You have been on the run for far too long and there’s no escape for you.
Gloria: Can someone explain what the hell is going on here?
Police officer: We would like to stay and chat, but duty calls. Let’s go Mr James Ngwenya or is it Abednego Tumbai?
Tell us: What do you think resulted to James’s arrest?
