Jhene is the prettiest girl in the world. She's so perfect. The only problem is she's a virgin. I've never been with a girl that's a virgin.
Is that Jhene in the window? Is she talking to me, or is she talking to herself?
Why does Rondarious have to be from the east side? Why do I have to be from the south side? I wish we were both from the same sides.
I wish we were from the same side of town. I hate how they define us by our community.
Long enough to know that you feel the same way I feel.
Rondarious is speaking to himself.
Oh my gosh! Rondarious, how long have you been standing there?
No, but seriously though, why can't we really love each other? Why can't we really be together? Because of what sides we were reared? That's so dumb to me.
Well if I can't love you because of the side of town I represent, then I will no longer be from the east side.
Jhene is also speaking to herself.
I swear to the east that I love you.
If you love me, then show me that you love me!
Jhene, I swear on my life, I love you, with all my heart.
Please don't swear to your hood. I want you to swear to something you honestly value.
So, you're swearing on your life that you love me? These are a variety of promises. I think we're moving to fast.
So, it's like that now ?
Rondarious is standing outside of Jhene's balcony. He can hear Jhene talking to herself. This is an example of dramatic irony.
I expect to be loved back Jhene.
What do you expect from me?
Jhene doesn't like the fact that they're judged by their community. She honestly thinks it's the dumbest idea. Rondarious also feels the same way. He is willing to give up his lifestyle for her.
Jhene tells Rondarious that if he really loves her he needs to show her that he loves her. She doesn't want him to put it on the side of town he's from because it doesn't mean anything her. She's looking forward to him swearing that he loves her on something he values.
Jhene now feels like they're moving too fast. Rondarious wasn't expecting her response. Finally, he tells her he was expecting a, "I love you too", back.
