Can I use the answer "It better." in this example?
'I'm sure your dedication to the job will pay off soon,' said John.
'It better,' replied his friend.
Is this dialogue correct?
I'm not sure where I found this (It better), but I guess it means something like, "It (my dedication) better pay off soon otherwise I'm gonna be in trouble". Or "It must pay off soon, after all I've been through".
Am I right?
