In her handling of Colby (Tim Franklin) and Taylor’s (Annabelle Stephenson) affair, Bella (Courtney Miller) and Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) have recently been at loggerheads. Although he wants her to drop it, she insists that she must try to persuade her brother to finish it so that Angelo (Luke Jacobz) doesn’t face trouble.
Angelo approaches her as Bella is going home and claims Colby never came home last night. Nikau sees the altercation, but when he comes to her afterwards, she declines his help and asks if she is alright.
He goes to talk with her later, and she opens up briefly, but Colby emerges and interrupts them as he suggests they go for a walk to discuss their relationship. Later, he comes back to try to reach out again, but for the second time, she brushes him off.
Bella asks Nikau the next day if he wants to get a cup, but he informs her that, sick of her relentless rejection, he is no longer interested. Jasmine (Sam Frost) and Ryder (Lukas Radovich) are dreaming about the break-up and hatching a plan to repair it.
She is surprised to see Nikau following when Bella shows up at the gym after being summoned, and then they realise what’s going on. Before them, Jasmine and Ryder race to the exit and lock the door. Will the pair use the forced time alone to mend their differences, or will it just make the divide between them worse?
