Past month have been the juciest part of my diary, memoirs upon memoirs are in litany on different dates, the day on the plane have indeed turned a blessing. I and Uduak are having something that you can from a distance call a honeymoon, her company is bright, informative and progressive. We got through the audtion her aunt offered, I will be taking a role! who would have ever thought about it? that my first shot at movie making will be on the Emem Ottong's set?! My mom is right again, of course, I am loving Calabar!
We are on the set now, and I am seeing a whole different side of Emem; she is raging seriously, she is pissed at her lead role players, they are both late, three hours kind of late! she have used the F word about 100 times, yelling at everyone, the woman is a beast at work, the fissure between she and late comers cum this brouhaha!
After a while on phone, she turned back staring at me, "can you take a romantic role?" she asked with the most fierce face I have seen in my life; I answered saying "I will try" - showing her chauvanism to work intergrity, she called a supposed client that they should not bother, she was going to cast me and Uduak; this made me fearfully happy!!
The movie started and I was impressing Emem from the look of things, it was a wonderful story line. I was enjoying both myself and the work, this is my dream coming through in the most unbelievable way, Uduak and I was simply displaying the already acquired chemistry, she was good on set and I was enjoying her accent, it was simply our real life on camera.
The kiss scene came on, Emem took the pain to extensively explain how she wants it to be, she emphasized strongly on passion been the cogent part model of the scene, my hearbeat began to race, everything around me especially the career that I swore to love. "Action!" I heard, and the kiss started from the entrance.. We were wrapped in each others arms and barged the door open, the pace was ligtening fast..I tasted her lips and I forgot totally I was in front of the camera!
