The next day at a soccer match with another school, Nozi walks to the pitch and sits next to Joseph on the bench.
JOSEPH: Nozi, hi. What you doing here?
NOZI: I’m covering the match for the school newspaper.
JOSEPH: (disappointed) Oh!
NOZI: I’m meant to speak to other team mates too; mind if I ask you a few questions?
JOSEPH: Sure, but I don’t play much so I don’t think I’ll be much help.
NOZI: I’m also doing a survey about the dance. Who are you taking?
JOSEPH: No one.
NOZI: Why not?
JOSEPH: Honestly, I don’t know how to talk to girls. I haven’t got a date.
NOZI: I’m a girl and you’re talking to me, aren’t you?
JOSEPH: Yes, but you’re different.
NOZI: I better go take some pictures. Bye!
JOSEPH: OK, I’ll see you.
Nozi walks off as Athi approaches.
ATHI: What did she say?
JOSEPH: Nothing, just asked questions for the school paper.
ATHI: Oh wow! That’s some serious let-down.
JOSEPH: I’m such an idiot.
The whistle blows and the coach calls Joseph on to the field.
COACH: OK, Jansen. We’re one man down and we need you to get in there now.
JOSEPH: But, coach …
COACH: Jansen, there’s no one else. Just get in there. You don’t have to do anything – just be on the field or else we’ll lose the match.
Tell us: why do you think Nozi asked Joseph about who he was taking to the dance?
