Molly: But Sethu, stop hurting yourself bro. If she loved you, she wouldn’t have left you.

Sethu: How do I remove these feelings buddy? You know, sometimes I just feel like I do not deserve to be in a relationship. I feel like I cannot love, and I feel like I am a loser when it comes to love.

Molly: Stop saying that Sethu. You are a great gentleman. She cheated on you, and all you need to do is to move on with your life, and …

Sethu: And what?

Molly: (Smiling.) I’m here to bring your smile again. You are my buddy, and I can’t let you suffer. C’mon, get up.

Sethu: Going home already?

Molly: No, we are going to the mall.

Sethu: To do what at the mall? I don’t have cash, same as you.

Molly: Do you remember the black Nike sneaker you wanted?

Sethu: Yes …

Molly: Come, let’s go and get it.

Sethu: It costs R3 000, buddy, and I don’t … Wait, you had R3 000, and the money was for you to travel with friends to Gauteng … Did you …?

Molly: Why should I go to Gauteng while my buddy is going through a lot? Gauteng will always be Gauteng, and I will go there when I have time. Now, stop asking many questions, and let’s go and buy the sneaker

(They leave to go buy the sneaker.)
