Yea, so I’m about to go eat my food. I swear if my sister ate my food I’m gonna (breathes heavily) I’m gonna die…

Korede

 I knew it was Teni.

INT. CONFESSIONAL – DAY

Teni

Oh..my..god. Here we go again, she always overreacts when someone eats her food. And I already know she’s going to blame me for eating it.

Camera- man

Why would she suspect you?

Teni

I usually eat her food. But I swear it wasn’t me this time.

INT. KITCHEN – DAY

Korede

Teni I already know it was you, you always eat my food. Case closed.

Teni

      It wasn’t me.

Teni raises her hands in a plea. 

Korede does a dramatic fall down in disbelief and acts as if she’s having a heart attack.

INT. CONFESSIONAL – DAY CONT.

Korede

And here she goes lying again. I can’t believe she has the audacity to lie. She’s a pathological..habitual…perpetual  FOOD STEALER!

Camera zooms in more on every word.

INT. KITCHEN – DAY CONT.

Korede

You know what..it might not be you.

Korede speaks in a sarcastic tone.

Korede has a stare off with Ore before speaking.

Korede

Did you eat my food, yes or no?

Dramatic music/sound effect as camera quickly pans to Ore

Ore

No.

[Boom sound] Korede clenches her chest and gasps for air.

Korede

So a ghost just ate my food.

Dramatic music plays and camera pans to everyone individually. [Music]

Ore (Cont.)

Such a big deal out of these things, like she can easily just buy another meal.

You know what.. I’m done!

Korede throws her hands up in the air

Korede goes upstairs (camera follows) she wants the camera to get out of her face as she leaves

I don’t think I’ve ever met someone as dramatic as her. 

Ore scoffs.

I know right

Teni has a disgusted look in her face.

Korede

I’m moving away..that’s the only solution to stop this madness.

Where are you going to go?

Korede glares at the camera man, rolls her eyes, and scoffs

She leaves the confessional room.
