A Bittersweet Encounter Part 3:
The scene flashes then to 2016 at the Toretto's neighborhood in Burbank, California. Mia's brother, Dom, was hosting a night party with a lot of the kids in school. Mia watched from her bedroom window, while trying to study at the same time, as kids from her school partied in the driveway. She then noticed Zach arriving and walking inside her house, only to be stopped by Vince.
"Would you cut the sh*t already? C'mon!" Mia yelled. She rushed down the stairs and pushed Vince back from getting any closer to Zach. It was obvious that Vince was jealous of Zach. Whether it was because of his looks, his out-of-the-world talent with the basketball or his flirtatious relationship with Mia, Zach didn't really know what Vince's problem was with him. Despite this, however, he tried his best to "play it cool." He knew that he needed to get on Vince's good side if he wanted to survive in school.
"C'mon, let's go get me a drink," Mia said teasingly at Zach before proceeding to stare down Vince.
She then led Zach into the kitchen where the drinks are laid out in a bucket of ice.
"What do you want?"
"Anything light," she responded before biting her lips and gazing back at him as he took a Snapple from the bucket and handed it to her. "You know my brother likes you. Papi likes you, too."
"Well, I'd like to think it's because I'm good at tuning their cars."
"Are you also good with girls?" she said, taking a sip of the Snapple in an attempt to make it look like she's just keeping things casual with him.
"No, I'm better at basketball than I am with girls."
"You're a terrible liar, Zach," she scoffed cutely at him.
"In that case, do you wanna go out?"
"I'm sorry," she shook her head, pretending to be slightly taken aback by his proposal. "I don't go out with my brother's friends. But maybe if you score 40 in tomorrow's game, I might just change my mind," she teased before adding, "just maybe."
