Bashira smiles.

BASHIRA:

Sisters?

MOLLY:

Yeah.

They do a little handshake which Molly has clearly taught to

Bashira.

MOLLY (CONT'D)

You better get off to school. You're

gonna be late! I was always late... I

spent more time writing in the late book

than I did in all my other lessons put

together!

Bashira looks confused. Bashira's father comes out his house and

looks over at them.

MOLLY (CONT'D)

School.

Bashira's mood changes, she looks sad and shakes her head.

BASHIRA:

My father say no school.

MOLLY:

Why would he say that?

Badrai approaches them and growls in Pashto for Bashira to get

inside the dwelling whilst never taking his fierce eyes off Molly.

She stares back at him and sees the gun slung across his shoulder.

Bashira puts her scarf over her head and with a sad look at Molly

goes back inside her house.

JAMES (O.S.)

(yells)

Dawes!

The sound of James' voice cutting through the cacophony of the

village causes Molly to turn, see James and head back towards

him through the throng of villagers.

JAMES (CONT'D)

Excuse me a second, when did Her Majesty

die and make you the Queen?

MOLLY:

Sir?

JAMES:

You are not in charge. You do not wander

off.

MOLLY:

Sorry sir. It's just...

JAMES:

Do you realise how much danger you just

put yourself in?

MOLLY:

She'd dropped her scarf, I was just

gonna...

JAMES:

So you thought you'd risk your life to

pick it up?

MOLLY:

Sorry sir. It's just that she's become

my little friend...

JAMES:

You do not involve yourself in the lives

of the locals. They must not become

dependent on us in any way, shape or

form, do you understand?
