B : Thanks.
B : I’ve been in this town for about a year…
A : Which town?
B : This town, right here.
A : Ah, I see. A year, huh?

A : Interesting. Please continue.
B : Being in this town has opened my eyes and had a profound impact on me…
A : Do you mean it had a significant effect?
B : Exactly. It has broadened my vision, changed my interpretations, and helped me break free from melancholy.
A : I see. Can you elaborate?
B : We’ve grown up, moved on from unnecessary drama.

A : I understand.
B : They say, “Things can always get worse.”
