[Jess has collapsed on living room couch]
Mum, I'm starving. I worked through my lunch hour today.
Where's Pinky? She was supposed to pick you up so you wouldn't be late for Poli. Pinky, why didn't you pick your sister up from work, huh?
I went but the manager said I'd just missed her.
OK, Poli's on her way. I'll make you girls some tea.
[Pinky has taken Jess aside in the living room]
Who is he, then?
You must think I've got shit for brains, lying about a job and that!
Don't tell Mum and Dad. I kept Teet a secret for you.
He's not a Muslim, is he?
Ssh! I've been playing football for a women's team.
Huh? It's worse than I thought!
It's a tournament with real matches!
What is wrong with you, Jess? At least lie for something good! Don't you want a boyfriend like everyone else? You're quite pretty you know. Do your hair, some make-up, you'd look all right.
Leave her alone. I never wore make-up until after I was married. Jessie's a good girl now. She helped me wash all the net curtains and she made lovely aloo Gobi last week.
[Measuring Pinky] Waist, 25. Under bust, 28. Bust. 34 and a half.
[Pinky grabs measuring tape and tightens it]
Eh, that's too tight and rude!
No, Mum, I want my choli more fitted. That's the style, innit?
and a half.
How are you going to breathe?
Mum, why do I have to wear a sari? It will just fall down!
Your first sari is when you become a woman. Sari blouse and petticoat.
So bust. 27.
That's too tight. I want it looser.
Dressed in a sack, who's going to notice you, huh?
Don't worry. In one of our designs, even these mosquito bites will look like juicy mangoes!
[All women laugh except Jess]
Under the bust, 31. The waist. 31.
I need to buy shoes to go with the sari and the suits.
She's coming into line now!
I can pay for one pair. Can you pay for the other?
You need one black, and one white, to go with everything.
