INT Inside the shop
SALMA is checking the dresses closely one by one.
Excuse me, don’t you have black wedding gowns?
Are you kidding? What kind of a pride would wear something like that?
me, anyway, can I try this dress?
Yes, for sure, what is your size?
GO ahead and try it, it should fit you perfectly
SALMA goes in the change room; she takes off her clothes and puts the wedding gown on. She then goes out to check it in front of the mirror.
Beautiful, isn’t it?
Yes, it fits perfectly. When is the wedding?
SALMA pays the bill, she moves towards her car with the sales person following her with the wedding gown.
INT HOUSE 6pm
SALMA enters the house with the wedding gown in a big bag in her hand. She notices the salon’s lights on and some men voices in there.
MOTHER comes out of the Salon, she grabs SALMA from her hand and whispers in her ears
Where have you been?! Yalla rush dress quickly. Abu Omar is waiting to see you
SALMA goes to her room, places the wedding gown in her closet then comes back to the Saloon to meet her groom.
Abu Omar is chatting with her FATHER, he looks as old as him with a long mustache and big belly.
SALMA cold like a corpse slowly approaches and shakes hands with him.
this is my daughter SALMA. This is Abu Omar.
Both her father and mother give her warning look
Hi SALMA, how are you?
Fine, thank you
How is your work? Sounds like a tough job. Do you always come home late?
Poor women, these days they have to work as hard as men and still take care of their homes
SALMA, Abu Omar’s Wife passed away 2 months ago.
He is looking for a wife, and he just came today here to propose to you.
Abu Omar is a respectful man. We love you a lot and think that you would be in safe hands with him.
What do you think?
OK. When is the wedding?
FATHER and MOTHER looks at each other. Abu Omar smiles.
