Miyako: Hi, John, how are you?
John: Okay. You?
Miyako: Pretty good. What’s up? Are you okay?
Miyako: What is it? Tell me. What’s wrong?
John: I like you but you have a boyfriend and I like Yumie too, but she has a boyfriend too.
Miyako: I see. I have a boyfriend, and Yumie has a boyfriend, but you don’t have a girlfriend. Do you feel lonely?
John: Yes, I do.
Miyako: But you have me. I am not your girlfriend, but I am your friend.
John: Yes, you are right. You are a good friend.
