Fareed: Where are you going?

Amber: I’m going to meet Peter.

Fareed: When are you going to tell Lily?

Amber: Tell her what?

Fareed: You know what – that you’re dating her ex. She’s not going to take it well.

Amber: I don’t know why she would object. They broke up over a year ago and they’ve both moved on.

Fareed: Peter has moved on, but Lily still has a thing for him. You know that as well as I do.

Amber: She never said that he was off-limits. It’s not like we’re sneaking around behind her back.

Fareed: Aren’t you? She’s one of your best friends and you haven’t clued her in on the two of you yet. If you don’t tell her soon, when she finds out, all hell is going to break loose.

Amber: That’s not fair. If there were a statute of limitations on ex-boyfriends, then we’re well past that. He’s fair game.

Fareed: That’s not how she’s going to see it. If you ask me, you have two options: break it off with Peter or tell Lily now, before she finds out from someone else. Tell her the truth and let the chips fall where they may.

Amber: That’s easy for you to say. You’re not facing Lily’s wrath. I think I’ll keep this under wraps for now, thank you very much.

Fareed: Fine, but it’s your funeral.
