Tur­floop High’s res­i­dent mean girl Pretty Seakamela (Ler­ato Marabe) has been hav­ing a ball play­ing cu­pid in the cor­ri­dors, es­pe­cially with her timid friend Eu­nice (Oratile Maitisa). Pretty con­vinced her pal to go af­ter “it- guy” Nim­rod (Buhle Maseko) in early June and they hit it off im­me­di­ately… and that’s now a prob­lem for Pretty, who was ex­pect­ing her friend to be left with egg on her face. Pretty re­alises on Wed­nes­day 21 June that she wants Nim­rod af­ter “she sees his ten­der side and how he is with Eu­nice,” says Ler­ato, adding that “Pretty now thinks that she has more in com­mon with Nimza than Eu­nice. She vis­its him that same day and kisses him!” Pretty is jeal­ous of her friend but she doesn’t care, says Ler­ato. “She’s putting her friend­ship on the line to get the guy.”


With her heart and schem­ing head in com­pe­ti­tion, Pretty pre­tends that noth­ing hap­pened when she bumps into Eu­nice at school on Fri­day 23 June. “But Eu­nice al­ready knows all about the kiss. She doesn’t tell Pretty how she found out and the girls start ar­gu­ing,” says Ler­ato. The child­hood besties have never fought be­fore and the last thing any­one would ex­pect is for it to be about a boy! While Pretty feels re­spon­si­ble for start­ing Eu­nice and Nim­rod’s ro­mance, she be­lieves that she has the power to end to it too, sug­gests Ler­ato. “Pretty isn’t even will­ing to hear Eu­nice out. She re­fuses to feel bad for kiss­ing Nimza and tells her friend that it’s not her fault that he likes her too,” says Ler­ato. “It’s not like Eu­nice and Nimza are in an of­fi­cial re­la­tion­ship any­way.”


Eu­nice loses her tem­per but in­stead of slap­ping her friend, she’s go­ing to get even on Mon­day 26 June. She tells peo­ple that Pretty kissed her boyfriend and steps back as the rumour de­vel­ops. “Soon ev­ery­one’s say­ing that Pretty is sleep­ing with Nimza,” ex­plains Ler­ato. She finds out on Tues­day 27 June and “Pretty isn’t a loose girl and doesn’t want peo­ple ly­ing about her,” Ler­ato ex­plains. She can’t ask Eu­nice to help her, so she turns to Nimza on Tues­day 27. While he agrees to help clear her name, he wants noth­ing to do with her and hints that she should apol­o­gise to Eu­nice. Ler­ato says, “That’s a big ask, to ad­mit she was wrong. But…”

Pretty steals a kiss from her bestie’s guy.

Eu­nice is left heart­bro­ken.
