When her boyfriend is walking in the door, he notices all the fabric on the livingroom floor. He closes the door and continues to walk in the kitchen to see if Charlene cooked dinner. He immediately realizes that there is no dinner or anything cooked. He walks back in the livingroom very upset. Her boyfriend says, “Charlene, there is no dinner ready for me. I just got home from work. I can't believe this. All you do is sew at that sewing machine.” Charlene stops sewing and listen to her boyfriend speak to her. Charlene's boyfriend continues to say, “You will never get far with your designs. You should find you a job and let this sewing thing be a hobby, this is not a reality. We have bills to pay.” Charlene looks at her boyfriend and replies back, "Thank you for not believing in me. This is my dream and I will become a great and successful fashion designer one day. You suppose to be my support system and I get no support from you at all. Since I can't get any support from the person, I thought who had my back. I think we should just break up. I will not lose my focus and plus, I don't need a man who can't support me.” Her boyfriend is angry and says, “Well, I'm glad you said that because I am cheating on you anyway. I was going to leave you but I didn't know how to tell you.” Charlene continues to sew her design and glance at her boyfriend and says, “Bye.” Her boyfriend starts to gather his things and walks out the door.

I haven't seen you since high school. You look great. Here is my business card.” Charlene took the business card and put it in her purse and says, “Thank you and you still look the same.” Andre replies back, “I will like to meet with you tomorrow around 4pm.” Charlene is very confused about meeting Andre.
