Success: I need it now.
Maureen: so what do you want me to do? Get up from my bed and get water for you?
Success: Maureen, I need that water for tomorrow. I have a 7am lecture.
Maureen: too bad, I dont have any lecture.
Success: why do you always look for my trouble?
Maureen: whats that suppose to mean? Are you calling me a trouble maker?
Success: you are acting like one.
Maureen: what? (Going close to her) are you crazy?
Success: Maureen, leave me alone oh! Maureen, leave me alone.
Maureen: (slapping her head) oh now you want me to leave you alone and you couldnt even let me rest because of one bucket of water.
Success :( screaming) Maureen, I didnt do anything to you, leave me alone.
Nina: (waking up and murmuring) oh God, why cant someone have a good sleep in this room?
Maureen: then forget about your water today or I wouldnt get it for you anymore.
Success: but I need it very early tomorrow.
Nina: success what is it?
Success: Maureen used my water and dont want to replace it.
Nina: Maureen why now? Why would you use her water? Why cant you go and fetch water for yourself?
Maureen: this is none of your business.
Nina: as a matter of fact it is, I have kept water here before and I couldnt find it later. Im convinced you took it. You have to fetch her water back.
Maureen: or what?
Nina: or Ill use any water you keep under your bunk.
