The Unbelievable Miracle

(Pops – Episode 2)

{EXT: POPS’ YARD – DAY}

POPS’ CORPSE is lying on a long table, covered with a curtain at the middle of the yard. His NEIGHBOURS surround him. GOODY (a female close friend to Pops) makes a call to an HERBALIST.

GOODY

Hello! Good morning sir, please I need your urgent attention, one of my friends passed out for about four hours ago, please sir come quickly.

HERBALIST

(Over the telephone)
Is that Goody?

GOODY

Yes, sir.

HERBALIST

(Over the telephone)
All right, I will be right there in five minutes

The herbalist arrives in a car. Goody runs to meet with him behind the gate.

{BEHIND THE GATE; OUT OF THE COMPOUND}

GOODY

Thank God you are here.

HERBALIST

(opens his car-door, steps down, moves to the side of his car and opens the back door of the car)
All right.
(To Goody)
Any improvement on his condition?

GOODY

Sir, you better come to see it yourself, I don’t know what to say.

HERBALIST

(hands some containers to Goody)
Take these things inside, I’ll be right behind you.

GOODY

Okay, sir!
(takes the containers from the herbalist and goes into the yard)

The herbalist quickly takes a perfume from a secret place (glove compartment) in his car, sprays it on his palms, returns it, and goes into the yard.

HERBALIST

(sees Pops’ corpse and walks very fast to it)
For how long has he been like this?

GOODY

More than four hours.

HERBALIST

Good! He hasn’t gone far.
(pulls the curtain off Pops face. Pops’ neighbours and Goody sees Pops’ face and cries more)
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, it’s okay. He will come back because I’m here now.

GOODY

Thank goodness!

HERBALIST

(pulls off the curtain)
Hand me the containers.
(Goody hands the containers to him. He opens one of the containers and starts examining Pops’ corpse)
