Jason: “life after school is marriage now, or what do you think?” he said, giggling.
Queen: “come on, be serious!”
Jason: “oh, you think I’m not serious? If only you knew how I have been waiting for you” he joked.
Queen: “see, let’s talk later. I have to go now”, she brushed the topic off and hung the call.
Ahmad later spoke to Jason teasing him.
Ahmad: “hmmm, Jass Man!”

Liz: “hey Jason” what’s up? I have been trying your line since I got back I school, someone picked” she stated.
Jason: “hi! Oh, I am sorry about that, maybe I was not around with my phone.” He said apologetically.

Liz: I just called to let you know I am around, and to congratulate you. I have to go now” she said, bidding him, farewell.
Jason: “yeah, thank you so very much”. He thanked her, combing the question off. The line went off, and they both hung the call.
