[Zinzi wants to dump Mpho. Mpho has no idea about Thabo and Zinzi kissing.]
Zinzi: Mpho, what did you say about me and Thabo?
Mpho: To who? What’s going on?
Zinzi: Nothing, case closed.
Mpho: Why sudden change of behavior?
Zinzi: We can’t see each other anymore. Mmathapelo loves you, better be with her. She is my friend I can’t do that to her.
Mpho: Why are you saying this? I never once cheated or made you cry. We were happy yesterday.
Zinzi: I love you. Understand why I can’t be with you. Mmathapelo will find out about us soon.
Mpho: She moved on before we could even date. We can’t let others be between us.
Zinzi: (crying) No don’t call me anymore. Mmathapelo loves you.
[Thabo and Mpho are sitting outside their rooms. Joined by a few schoolmates.]
Mpho: Eish Thabo, Zinzi dumped me.
Thabo: Why? Did you tell her about those girls who have a crush on you?
Mpho: Bro do you really think I can do that? I love this girl more than anyone could.
Thabo: Don’t worry, she will come back.
Mpho: I hope she does. I really love her.
Thabo: I will talk to her for you.
[At night Thabo and Zinzi talk via a call.]
Thabo: My love.
Zinzi: Hey love, I dumped him earlier today.
Thabo: Yeah, he was with me. He told me everything. He was like a lost puppy.
Zinzi: I love you babe. I would do anything for you.
Thabo: I want you to tell him that you want to be with him now.
Zinzi: Okay, I want to call Mmathapelo and makes sure that she and Mpho date again.
Thabo: No don’t do that, he’s got to many girls already.
Zinzi: You mean he was cheating on me?
Thabo: Yes, with Mmathabo and others at school.
[Thabang and Mmathapelo try to take big step in their relationships. Mmathapelo had already got another new boyfriend. She got her boyfriend from her friend Zinzi.]
Thabang: Babes, I want us to make promise to each other.
Mmathapelo: Really? I know you’ve got girlfriend.
Thabang: We are no longer dating. You are the one that I want to be with.
Mmathapelo: Okay, let’s try.
Thabang: Yes babes. Tell me that you love me.
Mmathapelo: I love you. (She gets a phone call from Zinzi) Let me take this call, it is Zinzi.
Zinzi: Hey choma.
Mmathapelo: Hey, I’m with my man here.
Zinzi: Oh say hi to him.
Mmathapelo: Thabi, Zinzi sent her greetings.
Zinzi: I want to ask you a favour.
Mmathapelo: Anything for you my friend.
Zinzi: Do you still love Mpho? Move away from Thabang.
Mmathapelo: He is gone already. Love is a big word. I just want him back.
Zinzi: Oh, he told me that he wants you back too.
Mmathapelo: Mhh, this sounds serious.
Zinzi: Yeah my friend. Another bank.
Mmathapelo: (laughing) I will chat with him on Facebook.
Zinzi: Do that dear.
[Over the night Mmathapelo thought it through and decided to text Mpho.]
Mpho: Hi, How are you?
Mmathapelo: I’m fine thanks and how are you?
Mpho: I’m better.
Mmathapelo: Tell me something…
Mpho: I’m blank you tell me.
Mmathapelo: Me too. Did you love me?
Mpho: I did love you.
Mmathapelo: Do you still love me?
Mpho: I can’t say no or yes. I do care about you.
Mmathapelo: Okay, if you want me back just know I’m available.
Mpho: Only if I see that you are ready for a good relationship. No cheating involved.
[Mpho is simultaneously chatting via Facebook.]
[After ten minutes Zinzi show her true colours.]
Zinzi: Is that the best response you could give?
Mpho: Why do you hate me that much? I left someone to be with you. Avoided others to love you. And now it’s like all I did was to hurt you. I’m sorry for everything.
Zinzi: Do you think you are perfect?
Mpho: No, I’m trying to be a better person. Remember the day you sent me love messages with another guy’s name?
Zinzi: What about it?
Mpho: It shows how you love that guy and I didn’t ask you. I didn’t want to lose you.
Zinzi: It is over between us, case closed.
Mpho: I’m not asking you to take me back. Tell me what wrong I did!?
