'And here is my beauty, my pride and joy, VAN DE SUPREMO! It is very rare I take her out, but this is as a moment where we need her, no? OK, hop in and do your seatbelt up. Safety first!' They hopped into the car and Pedro revved the engine.

'Ready?' asked Pedro.

'Ready,' Abby said confidently and Van De Supremo backed out of the car park and vanished down the road in a puff of black smoke.

'So,' said Pedro as they sped down the motor way.

'How do you know Jamie?'

'Friend. Next door neighbour. Our mother's died together,' said Abby, shrugging her shoulders. 

'Oh, so you are pretty close, no? Your family's, they see each other a lot?'

'Well...' Abby said and then she began to tell the whole story to Pedro, a total stranger who Jamie trusted. 

'And how do you know Jamie?' asked Abby once she had finished her story.

'Well, he is my best customer! Always buying a slice or two, he is great, no?' Abby nodded. 

'He is great.'

'So, you two, you are a couple, no?' asked Pedro, turning a left. Abby's face flushed bright red so she looked oddly like a ripe tomato.

'No, no, we're just friends,' she gabbled but Pedro raised his eyebrows.

'Then why do you come looking for him? No normal friend goes looking for another friend, do they? No, my dear, they do not.' Abby sighed. He had a point.

'He just needs help. He never gets any attention, his dad is an alcoholic who hits him and he has just been transported to a strangers home to be cared for the rest of his life.' 

'I see. So you feel sorry for him, no? You only help because you feel bad his life is not as good as yours? My dear, that is not because you are his friend but because you do it out of guilt.' Abby thought about. Was she doing this because of guilt? No. She was doing it because he needed help and it was for his own good. Not because he was too poor and pathetic to have Abby's life and she wanted him to have a nice life. They sat in silence for the rest of the journey.
