At that moment Peter comes in and notices the situation. Peter goes mad and throws Tim out of his house. At school Senad is watching Barbara and Tjaša.

Barbara accepts. Senad is watching her back as Barbara is spraying the graffiti on the wall. Senad notices the headmaster coming and warns Barbara but the headmaster is already there, she caught them red handed but did not see who was spraying the graffiti. Senad and Barbara are sitting in front of the headmaster's office. Barbara is totally crushed and says that she will get trouble at home, Senad is calm and comforts her. Suddenly Barbara offers Senad money, if he says that he did it. Senad is offended and rejects the offer. The office door opens and the headmaster looks out of her office saying that one of them should come in. Senad grabs one of the bags (the viewer does not know yet that he has taken Barbara's bag) and goes inside. The headmaster opens the schoolbag and takes a pink girly pen case out first, next comes the spray. Senad is just smiling. The headmaster says that she is not surprised at all and that she knew he did it anyway, and that his options do not look too good. Senad comes out of the office and returns Barbara's bag. The headmaster tells Barbara that she can leave because she has already found the delinquent. Barbara comes running after Senad asking him to go out for a drink with her. Senad smiles.
