Jing is anxious because her parents are coming to town. That wasn’t a problem. The problem was that they don’t know about her boyfriend, Kevin.
They’ve made an understanding about the logistics of the day — he has to move out. But with the clock ticking, Jing was frustrated that Kevin doesn’t seem to care.
She picks on him for oversleeping, smoking in the room, and not packing.
It’s not as sexy or common as love, but a big part of relationships is in logistics. Kevin wasn’t respecting the logistical arrangements of their relationship.
There was little love between them, they’re spending most of their time bickering: pack, pack, pack, was all Jing can think of.
She thinks he doesn’t care. But soon enough, Kevin gets the hint, and he takes matters into his own hands.
And suddenly, Jing feels a painful emptiness: she got so caught up in keeping appearances that they forgot about each other.
