While spending the evening together, Mars calls to invite her out to celebrate her birthday.
After turning down his request and hanging up the phone Mars calls back, asking Nola “Let me smell it?” He then begins arguing with his sister, telling her to “Shut the fuck up.” Nola is confused, believing that Mars is speaking to her. After refusing Mars again, Nola hangs up and Jamie asks who was on the phone. Nola states that she was speaking to a friend. Brushing off the discussion, Jamie recites a poem that he has written for Nola. Later, Nola tells Mars about the poem Jamie wrote for her. He laughs at the poem, calling Jamie a cornball. He proceeds to perform a rap for her. Nola gets upset when Mars refers to her as a freak. We then see Jamie in his office trying to call Nola while she happens to be sleeping with Mars. After they finish, Mars asks her if he as good in bed as her other lovers and states that she has a lot of space under her bed for all of his Air Jordans, implying that he wants their relationship to progress.
