Storyline

Dobie has recently realized that Maynard is holding him back from many opportunities in life, but refuses to give up their friendship for those opportunities. Maynard, on the other hand, is oblivious to him being an obstacle to Dobie's upward mobility, that is until he secretly hears Dobie talk to others about those missed opportunities because of him. As such, Maynard encourages Dobie to drop him as a friend. As Dobie won't, Maynard goes on a campaign to drop Dobie as his friend, that campaign which works. As a result, Dobie is able to take advantage of those opportunities, at the unknown expense of Maynard's happiness as he is secretly devastated at losing Dobie as a friend. Is there any way to bring the two back together? Written by Huggo
