Ivy: Thanks. Princes, you can seat in as well. *[Princes settle in the second office chair]* I want us to come up with a fitting name for the new infant in our home.
Princes: Every time I look at the baby, I quickly remember the flower call Daisy. In the midst of other children, the infant appears like the flower.
Winnie: I agree with Princes. Daisy is a fitting name and I know it’s one the baby girl will grow up to like.
Ivy: That was quick. Princes, it’s like you’ve been doing some thinking ahead of us. I also like the name Daisy. Princes, you’ll please call in our lawyer to get ready an affidavit that will be in the file.
Winnie: I have to get back to my role, the young ladies and gentlemen are waiting for the mentoring talk on choice of career.
Princes: Madam, there is an adoption application for a child from this home that requires deliberation.
Ivy: Thanks for reminding me. When you put a call through to the lawyer regarding the affidavit, tell him I need to see him with regards to the application for adoption as well.
**[Winnie left to the hall where the teenage children are already gathered for there motivational talk]**
Ivy: Princes, I notice you’re very fond the new infant or should I say Daisy.
Prince: Your observation is correct madam. I wonder how a young lady will abandon such a lovely baby at the hospital. If I have my way, I’ll make such lady pay dearly for bastardly act.
Ivy: Its ok. I’ll put you in charge of ensuring Daisy’s needs are met at all times.
Princes: Madam, this is additional to my job as your PA. That means I should be expecting a pay rise.
Ivy: *[Smiles]* I could almost read you that you’re going to come up with that. Anyway, be rest assured you’ll be getting a pay rise but you do the job first.

Nurse 2: Oh know madam. The doctor has instructed us that no one should be allowed to see the baby in his absence.

Bimpe: Ok. You nurses most be doing a good job, I’ve not heard the cry of my grand daughter since I came into the hospital.
Nurse 2: Thank you madam.
**[Nurse 1 left the hospital reception as a patient needs attention]**
Nurse 2: *[Soliloquy]* Oh my, doctor has not informed this woman that the baby has been taking to a welfare home. We almost let the cat out of the basket. The news may shock her. I think I should inform the doctor so he can get himself prepared *[Stop soliloquy to address Bimpe]* Madam, the doctor will be informed that you’re waiting to see him.
Bimpe: Thank you my dear. *[Soliloquy]*I’m surprise at this kind of instruction from the doctor. I should ask them to give me his number maybe these nurses are just toying with me. Tinu, Tinu, Tinu how I wish you had come back home with the baby. You brothers and sisters were all looking forward to your return back home *[Soliloquy stops at the entry of two police inspectors into the hospital reception]*
