This scene begins as a playful challenge between two actors, at first trading just words. But it soon transforms into a contest of emotion, as they try to conquer each other in proposition. The loser of this game will fall in love. Unexpectedly, their real emotions become involved and both fall in love. The audience will ask: Is this real? Or just really good acting? At this moment, it seems possible that even the actors themselves do not know, because the emotion between them is that real.
