Selena: we are twenty two now, do you feel anything new?
Demi: (looking through the window) see that tree in the backyard? I feel as old as it is

Joe: (smiles slightly) you mean, you wanna be my girlfriend?
Demi: (nodded through her tears trying not to cry) yes Joe I would like to be--- your girlfriend
Joe: (smiled a bit and held her hand in his) I have always dreamed that you will be mine someday
(He moved closer to her, stroke her wet cheeks. Demi was trying not to cry but she lost control on her eyes. He leaned his face closer to her and after hesitation she did the same. There lips were so close that she could feel his breath against her lips, they were even closer when he smiled, opened his eyes and planted a kiss on her forehead making her open her eyes in surprise)
Joe: (whispered in her ears) and dreams are just for sleeping (he looked at her and sighed) you will never be mine dems
Demi: (by those words Demi's tears got heavier and she started crying)
Joe: your heart belongs to someone... he is dead but he is darn lucky
Demi: (hugged Joe and cried to his chest, her voice was cracking) thank you... thank you
Joe: (smiled) one day you will be with someone else and you will be happy trust me... but there is no rush
Demi: (she looked up at him) you heard me right, thank you Joe... you always know what to say
Joe: (wiped her tears)
Demi: that doesn't mean. We will never see each others again right? Cuz seriously Joe I need to have you around but as a best friend. I have never had a guy friend before I really need to have you around Joe
Joe: well then I am glad to be your first guy friend
