Slow
I haven’t forgot about all your help. You give it to me. I was just looking forward that you could help me in this man, but I think you ain’t going to do it.

O.D. Young Fast
I ready told you, I would if I could. Like I told you before I have my razones and you have to understand that lil dog.

Slow
But I’m tired of living that same life bro. I want to change and have a new vida style.

O.D. Young Fast

Slow
Because my hyna come to me and we talk about it and she said that I have 24 horas to think about it.If I don’t make a decision I’m going to lose her and my dream is going to go away too.

O.D. Young Fast
Ooooh. That what this is all about. You ass is scared to lose the WoooF. Think like a man for once in your vida what you want and what is best for you.

Slow
I ready think about what is the best for me. And I think it’s the time to have a familia and become a great padre for my hijos.

O.D. Young Fast
I know how the game run. Be married, have hijos. I ain’t that easy how you think it is.

Slow
So if you think it’s not that easy why you married then. Why you do it? I want to experience my vida and to me like a great padre. You know I never have one.

O.D. Young Fast.
I got chu. I got chu. I know how you feel but I told you I have my razones why.

Slow
But why you can’t tell me you razones? I really need to know so I can understand you but if you don’t tell me I’m never going to know. I thought you trust me. I thought we were Karnales, I thought we were down for each other until we die. But I see it isn’t like that anymore. What happened with us bro?

O.D. Young Fast
That’s what I want to Know. Was up with us lil dog?

Slow
You tell me. Man you know this ain’t coming just right now. I been thinking to change my vida for a while now. Don’t come and act like you didn’t know

O.D. Young Fast
You know what, let me think about it.

Slow
What! I told you already. I just got 24 damn horas to make a decision and you come to me and tell me dat you need to think about it. What the hell is wrong with you?

O.D. Young Fast
Ain’t no damn thing wrong with me. For once in your damn vida let’s just think about it before we take a decision.

Slow
I’ve been thinking lately and you don’t know how I feel about her.

O.D. Young Fast
And what the hell you waiting for to tell me how you feel about her eh????

Slow
I feel I’m in love with her. Dat’s how I feel.

O.D. Young Fast
But again, Why now? And why with that hyna of all the hynas you been having?

Slow
Because that’s the hyna how I feel comfortable and she making me proud of myself and she treat me like a real dog. Not like a street dog like everyone else does. She don’t care if I’m part of a tribe, she love me for myself. Something that not alot of people do. She think I can do a lot better and still fight for my futuro.

O.D. Young Fast
Woooow. Great speech she told you. And you believe everything the WoooF tell you. And you want to know how I feel about you and the WoooF?

Slow
Yeah. Of course I do.

O.D. Young Fast.

Slow

O.D. Young Fast
Aight look Karnal, I never told you dis because I didn’t wanna hurt your feelings but since you wanna know I’ll tell you ok.

Slow
Aight. Left the crash to the side and tell me now.

O.D. Young Fast
Aight Aight Look. I don’t really like the hyna and I think if you leave the tribe you going to turn (SNITCH)________________ like others did.

Slow

O.D. Young Fast
I told you before dat you ain’t going to like it, but you was rushing me to tell you and now look how you react. I’m telling you how I feel because you asked me to.

Slow
I did ask you, but, aight continue.

O.D. Young Fast
Look ain’t like I don’t trust you. I do. Don’t take me wrong but I just, I have the bad feeling on me, and I can’t take it out of my head.

Slow
I know you trust me. But if you really trust me like you said, let me go and be happy with my hyna. I know you don’t like her but I promise you I’ll come back and show to you I ain’t going to be a (SNITCH)______________________.

O.D. Young Fast
It’s not just me. I love you a lot. We’ve been friends for a long time and I don’t want this friendship to end like dat. But you have to think about it.

Slow
I love you too Karnal, but this is about me and my future. I really want get my great wish. Be a padre and have a familia with my hyna, and be happy and never look back to my past and the old vida style.

O.D. Young Fast
I understand you and really want to help you but it isn’t just me. I have a lot of dogs on the top of me asking me other things.

Slow
I know how this is but I’m tired of this game. Please Karnal, Let me go a be happy with my hyna. Don’t think I’m not going to talk to you again, Nel, I never could leave a Karnal like you. A dog who helped me when I was going through alot of problemas. I love you and I never could turn my back to you. Look Karnal, I’m going home. Take your time to think about it, but just never forget I love you so much and you always be in my mente y corazon.
(Slow turns around to walk away)

O.D. Young Fast.

O.D. Young Fast
Now go and be happy before she leave. I love you. Don’t forget it.

Slow

(Slow walks away to his casa to tell his hyna the good news, but when he enters he didn’t find no one. He just finds a piece of paper from estrella that said:)

Slow
“Im sorry Baby I couldn’t take it anymore. I love you but you thought about it too much. I’ll always miss you and love you. Bye.”
