Danny and Elizabeth are best friends and also roommates. Danny who woke up late was hurried to go to work. But same as everyday, Elizabeth followed every single step behind him to interrupt him to go out. Danny told her that he would be late tonight, because he had to work at a bar instead of his friend. She was depressed that he would come back late and even trapped the idea that he could meet a hot woman in the bar. But there’s nothing she can block him. She spends whole daytime just waiting for him, doing cooking, making a knit for him and so on.

At night, he came back with an unwelcome guest, Taylor, who is working as a secretary. He introduced her to Elizabeth saying they met at the bar and had some conversation just like a bartender and a guest. And they felt common things between them, so they wanted more conversation. The time was late, nowhere to go, so they just came to Danny’s house together to have a tea doing conversation. Elizabeth is sitting with them but never says anything. Elizabeth is jealous towards Taylor, because she could feel something different from Danny that he slightly opens his mind to her. The best reason that he slightly changes his mind is because of the common thing between them and the thing is both of them had a miserable memory about their first love. Taylor also lost her lover because of an unexpected accident same as Danny. Even though he closed his mind after the accident, she was trying to be happy. That’s why he was touched to her and got interests her.

After the night, he is changed. He comes back home late, wears colorful shirt, doesn’t speak with Elizabeth much and so on. One day, Danny says to Elizabeth about his real mind that he likes Taylor a lot. To Elizabeth, it is misery to endure seeing he loves another woman. So she decides to leave him. The next day, after he goes to work, she leaves him. But there was nowhere she can go. In the afternoon, she sees Danny showing Elizabeth’s picture to people looking for her near the house. She is touching at the moment and then thinks that he needs and misses her. So she tries to go back to him. But and then, Taylor comes to him and persuade him to give up finding her. Danny also agrees with her. They look happy like nothing happened, nothing sad. Elizabeth follows them behind. And she thinks that if she can’t be his lover, it is better staying near him even as a friend, wishing him to be happy. She recognizes that it is harder to leave and curse him instead of seeing him love someone near him.
