Description

This is the fifth clip from the drama 'Some Dogs Bite', which follows a group of vulnerable young people on their journey to find some stability and security in their lives. Venetia is beginning to feel a deep attraction towards H. Her best friend, Seema, asks Venetia why she is always looking for new relationships and falling for new boyfriends. Venetia jokingly makes a distinction between real friends, like Seema and boyfriends, but she cannot hide her admiration for H.

She finds H watching over Sevvie while Casey sleeps. The two of them talk again, and this time H begins to tell Venetia about his own upbringing, the importance of his grandmother and her good luck charm which he still keeps. The discussion becomes more tender and intimate, and they begin to kiss passionately, before Venetia suddenly pulls away from H. She recalls how her mother used to have sex in the same room when she was a child, and she cannot bring herself to do the same thing while the baby is there.
