Mikaila excuses herself from her first boyfriend. She covers her face with her hand and walks into the kitchen. Leaning against the counter, she starts to cry. Her friend slides off the sink and asks her what’s wrong. She says her second boyfriend wasn’t supposed to come. He was going on vacation with his parents for the week. Her friend says he’ll get over it. Mikalia shakes her head, saying she told him he loved him last week and had mentioned she was okay with being serious.
