First Time
After just a month of being together, Vince and Aliyah decide to take their relationship into a much intimate level. Being excited and nervous at the same time, they quickly go inside a convenience store to buy a condom. This is their first time ever and they do not seem to know what to say in front of the cashier. Vince awkwardly points over to the box of condoms, while Aliyah looks down shyly, trying to avoid eye contact with anyone. The cashier casually grabs the box and punches the item in the cash register. Aliyah quickly grabs the box and puts it inside her bag, trying to prevent anyone from seeing it.The two of them rush to Vince’s condominium to do what they have been wanting to do. Arriving at Vince's condo, they go straight to the bed. They kiss each other intensely until they start to take off each other’s clothes. Aliyah then grabs the condom from her bag and gives it to Vince. They stop kissing and Vince looks at Aliyah with confusion. Having thought that Aliyah knows what to do, he tries to give the condom back to her. Aliyah shakes her head and gives her the same look of confusion. Realizing that they both have no idea on what to do and how to use the condom, Vince decides to look it up online. They search it up on google and click the first link of instructions that they see. They quickly skim through the instructions and try to follow what they read. Vince tries to put the condom on but fails to do so. He tries again and it still doesn’t stay put. He hands it over to Aliyah to let her try to do it. The two keep trying but they don't succeed. Aliyah tries to stretch the condom, thinking that it's just not stretched enough. While doing this, she accidentally lets go of one end and the condom flicks to Vince's face. Vince and Aliyah look at each other and they burst out laughing. Vince motions to the door, asking Aliyah if she'd like to eat instead. Aliyah nods her head, the two quickly put on their clothes and head out of the room. As the credits roll, a short clip of the couple eating and laughing together at a fast food chain is shown.

Lila & Josh
Josh is a young man who blatantly upholds the meaning of pride and ignorance in the time of the pandemic. His girlfriend on the other hand, Lila, is solely aware of what is going on and how it can be avoided. With opposing views, Lila and Josh find it hard to reach a common ground. They are challenged by their own belief of what COVID-19 is actually all about, disproving that love has no boundaries when it comes to not accepting the facts. One day, Josh calls Lila after sending her a gift. Despite feeling touched, Lila still finds herself irritated as Josh says that he’s going out for a bit to meet a friend and dismisses her suggestion to stay home. Lila was unable to do anything about it and instead calls her best friend, Isa, to seek comfort. Lila complains about her boyfriend’s carelessness when cases of the coronavirus in the country continue to rise. Isa subtly asks if Josh knows, hinting on a secret that Lila has been hiding. After ending the conversation, Lila was surprised to receive another call from Josh, who reveals that he makes a detour and is now waiting outside of her house. He wanted to see and hug her after not being able to for 6 months due to the pandemic. He blames it on what he calls “a made up virus.” Eventually, this fueled Lila’s anger and resulted in a fight. Days have gone by after their fight but Lila was still unresponsive to Josh. He worries that something might have happened and opted to call Isa who reveals that Lila was in quarantine for days now after being identified as a PUI. Shocked and worried, Josh feels annoyed that they kept it a secret. Isa scoffs back as Josh didn’t even believe in the virus in the first place. After ending the call, Josh swallows his pride and does some research to educate himself. He hurriedly goes to Lila’s house in full gear, now wearing a mask and face shield unlike his first visit. Unfortunately, no one seems to be home. Nonetheless, Josh patiently waits in hopes of seeing her and gaining assurance of her safety. With a soft call of his name, Lila suddenly appears, returning home from receiving her negative test result. As the two express their remorse and exchange their apologies, they walk on with a brighter outlook to the situation.
