Start:

Zarina: You did what?
Afzal: It’s not that big a deal, behti.
Zarina: How many times have you done this?
Afzal: Twice. (Beat.) Okay…. More than twice.

End:

Afzal:.... Meet him for your poor old father.
Zarina: You’re not poor. And you’re not old.
Afzal: For your lying and manipulative father. Who only loves you. And would gladly give his heart and his life for you to be happy.
