S1/E15: Aliya The Story By Minna Davies



The street is dark. Sound of dogs barking. Aliya is walking and very terrified. Foot wearing boots walks behind her. She turns the flash on her phone and hastily turns to see who is there but the space is empty.

SCHOOL HALL - DAY
Students from different schools rushing in.
Aliya is in a corner with her sax watching the time ticking on the wall, and the door for her mom. Just then she sees Musa comes in hanging on the wall. Surprised to see him, she goes to him.

ALIYA
What are you doing here?

MUSA
Is that the way you should greet?

ALIYA
I am sorry, I was expecting mom.

MUSA
Well mom is not coming.
She said I should take you home.

ALIYA
What home?

MUSA
Mine.

ALIYA (V.O)
She left me, we had a deal
And she left me. She is just
A coward, I hate her.

PRESENT DAY

CLUB HOUSE - EVENING

Audience screaming as a hip hop beat fills the atmosphere.
The opposing crew dancing and wowing the crowed till the music fades.

MC
All right, My god, is it hot in here
or what?
Crowd screams.



MC (CONT’D)
I can't breathe, all that screaming
would give me a heart attack. Okay
we have seen them dance, stunt,
jump off of the roof, I think these
two are crazy. But there can only
be one winner. Is it the Green Crew?

Audience scream.


MC (CONT’D)
Or the Bliss Dance Crew.
Audience scream.

MC (CONT’D)
Okay seems like it’s a tie.

Aliya pushing herself through the crowd to her crew.

ALIYA
Sorry... excuse…

She finally gets there. Her friends are happy to see her.

OMA
Aliya...
Ade looks back.

ALIYA hugs Oma an says hi to her dance mates, then walks to
Ade.

MC
There is only one thing to do. One
last round would decide the winner.

ALIYA
I am sorry.

ADE
You shouldn’t have come.

ALIYA
Please...

She stares at him with a pity face.



ADE
OK... but I would punish you after
this.

ALIYA
Whatever.

The dance crew rejoice.

MC
The Bliss Dance Crew would go
first.

ADE
All right people this is it.
(to Aliya)
Let’s do this.

Music comes up
They dance and then the Green Crew. Mc standing between them.

MC
So is it the Bliss Dance Crew
Audience scream louder.

MC (CONT’D)
And we have a winner. The Bliss
Dance Crew.

They rejoiced, hugging one other. Jane runs to Ade and gives him a tight hug.
Aliya meets with Musa.

MUSA
I am proud of you.

ALIYA
Thanks uncle.

Music fills the atmosphere as they drink and merry

ALIYA’S ROOM, NIGHT

Sitting at the edge of the bed she has her mom’s letter in one hand and her phone on the other. She dials her mom’s number; the buzz of it ringing makes her more alert.

RAMAT
Hello.

Her mom’s voice from the phone.

ALIYA
Why did you not tell me?

RAMAT
I don’t understand you love.

ALIYA
Why you had to stay.
I thought you left me,
I didn’t know you were protecting me.

RAMAT
You were too young to
Understand then. I am sorry I lied

ALIYA
Don’t be. I love you mom.

RAMAT
Me too.

STREET - NIGHT- ALIYA’S DREAM
The street is dark. Sound of dogs barking. Aliya is walking and very terrified. Foot wearing boots walks behind her. She turns the flash on her phone and hastily turns to see who is there but the space is empty.

ALIYA
(Terrified)
Who is there?

VOICE.
(faint echo)
Hi... kill me... don’t kill me...
kill... die.

ALIYA
Who is there?

She turns and jumps right on the ground terrified. There is a
man with an axe right in front of her with his hand dripping
blood as well as the axe. His face is not seen.

MAN
Save me.

Just immediately he is axed and he falls by Aliya side. She screams. She looks up just to see herself all bloody with axe with her.

GIRL
You are next.

She screams awake only to see her mom siting at the edge of her bed in the dark

RAMAT
Ushh, don’t worry love I am here.

ALIYA
Mom, What are you doing here?

RAMAT
Starting over, I hope it not too late.
Come closer.

Stretching her hand for a hug, Aliya goes in.

RAMAT
It is alright now,
Mommy is here.

Stroking her hair to calm her down, just oust side the window is a man in the dark staring with little girl with him.

LITTLE GIRL
She is not ready yet.

MAN
She is.

With him is the axe Aliya has been dreaming about.

MAN
Its time.
