The cloud is bursting out in tears again drenching every visible things in the field. I can sense the coldness by the shivering sound coming from the street dog that just passed by. I roamed my gaze in the park, children are in a haste to find shelter, a mother bird is singing a panicking song flying to and fro obviously looking for its little one. I let out a deep sigh, I’m leaning on a bench right now, I closed my eyes tightly, praying that someone will come and see me, join me watching the rain like before. Patiently waiting for someone to stare lovingly at me again.
I want to see a familiar silhouette in the rain so badly. Memories played at the back of my mind, tears started to stream on my rosy cheeks as I’m wishing that I can turn back the time.
I started to love the rain when I was in first grade. It was one of the rare days that my mom would come to school and fetch me. Waiting outside the classroom holding an umbrella and a raincoat for me. While other parents will bring two umbrellas, my mom will only bring one, reminiscing the idea that we’re sharing under one umbrella makes me giggle. Sometimes, she’ll even let herself get drenched in the rain making sure that I won’t get a tiny drop of rain. I love how she carry me when the water is high. I just miss my mom. But one day, she killed herself in the hospital.
“I can't leave you. This time, I'll stay” Brylle uttered.
Jasmine distanced a bit, but I got confused because she didn’t inch out to leave. She’s getting something from her bag, then leaped towards me.
My screams were swallowed back to my throat as she poured something in my face. I felt an intense pain directed from my eyes.
“If I can’t have Brylle, then no one should HAHA. Hmmm, but it seems like he’s into you AGAIN! So I just decided to put a corrosive solution in your pretty face,Vien” I trampled to the left edge of the bed, I felt comfort as the hand of Brylle caught me.
“How could you do this to me, mom?!” I wailed from the top of my lungs, still grunting from the pain.
Yes, Jasmine is my best friend, and she’s my mom.
“I’m tired of swearing but I know that you once fell in love with me, Brylle. Away from the fate that separated us long ago. There’s one flare that melted our love story, I want you back, Ricardo!” she crazily shouted, obviously addressing it to Brylle.
“I never believed them saying that you’re a psycho, mom! But now! You proved it to me that they’re right. Dad Ricardo is not Brylle! How could you let insanity of love drive you to destruction! Yes, they hold a strong resemblance with each other but they are two separate individuals” grasping for more air, I held on to the table beside me “Dad died long time ago, can’t you move on?! you saw this man that I fell in love with, but you tried every trick to destroy us, showing your plan and belief that dad reincarnated in him. That’s a crazy idea!” she’s laughing while I’m saying those words. I felt weakness wrap me up as I lose consciousness.
I slowly opened my eyes when the memory stopped playing in my head. My damp lashes caused a blurry affect in my vision.
The heavens seemed to open up as a familiar figure is walking going to my direction, my heart leaped in happiness as I tried to fix myself abruptly. Seven….six….five… four more steps and he’ll be barely inches away from me, but my whole system shook, a whole bucket of cold water drenched my inner soul and rattled as the scene unfolded before my eyes.
With a brown staff in his hand, he just walked and continuously took another unsure step without sparing a glance at me. With a shaky hand, I picked up the picture that he unconsciously dropped.
A girl’s arm hooked in the man’s arm, I can see genuine happiness between them clearly shouting out forever.
I gently strode my long legs towards him, “Hey, babe! I’m here” softly pinching his cheeks, “I told you that it’s way more better if you have me leading you the way. You’re such a hardheaded kid, you insisted to go inside the shop saying that you can, reasoning out that it’s just fine because there’s not a lot of costumers inside” he just smiled sweetly and said nothing. My heart slowly melted as I stared to my man, he held on to that photo as if holding a treasure so precious and priceless. That made my tears finally regain the power of gravity. I cupped his face and planted a kiss in his forehead, travelling my hands to his waist to lock him in my warm hug.
That blind man wrapped in my arms right now is Brylle. On the picture, appeared the both of us genuinely in love with each other before, up until now, and to infinity.
A part of me already died three years ago. But no one seems to notice. Maybe I’m just really good at hiding.
“Love recognizes no barriers, I know it is hard to remember all the gorgeous memories we had when all the wilted petals of flowers blocked the way, but the only thing that I know I could do was to love you, and love you more- like the way I did when we first laid in the same bed. You gave me a second chance to see the world again through your eyes saying that you’ve laid enough stares to the beauty of your world while in the hospital, which is me. You donated it to me thinking that I can’t take care of our children if I’m blind. I now quit writing in the book of singularity, and sign in as a collab engineer of a home that will be built between you and me” I cried through Brylle’s precious eyes as we kissed each other in the blessing of the Lord, the crowd merrily cheered us as we stood together hand in hand- me and the main character of my life book.
Disney said that everyone has their happy ending, so if it's not yet happy, then it's not yet the end.
I closed my eyes to inhale the merry scent of air inside the hall.
"It's the end... So it means both of you can already face the end all because it's already a happily ever after...." A frightful voice crashed the harmonious atmosphere.
I really thought that it was already a happily ever after, well, it was, before my mom appeared, on her left hand was a loaded gun.
The next thing that happened changed my whole life.....
I opened my eyes, unstable as I took in an unfamiliar view. Wandering my vision and thought. Curtains are half closed. A single chair facing the table. Neatly painted peach walls.The sun raised in majesty bringing in the surrounding's real color, it dyed the clouds a bright orange. Trees are quiet from rustling winds. The light penetrating from the dusty window kissed my pale skin. I woke up barely breathing in heavy air."Brylle!" I cried, I suddenly sat up on my bed. Wait it's not my bed.Where am I?Have I been here before?Is he here?Dazed and cold, I strode my fingers on the soft edges of the silk covering. I heard a loud resou
"Life is not a fairytale, if you lose your shoe at midnight, you're drunk!" A pack of students cracked out in laughter after that statement. They were chatting merrily when I threw a gaze on them, but they suddenly stopped the moment that they noticed me.Weird.It's almost 11:00 am when I reached the school. Stares were everywhere as I walked on the corridor along the rooms of first year students. I reopened Alyana's phone to check here schedule today and perhaps, slid away with everyone's eyes. Crap! How can I survive this day? I don't really plan to attend school. Like hello! I'm already 26, unfortunately I'm stuck in a 21 years old body *urgh* I already threw the idea of schooling away! Long long time ago.FlashbackNervousness and uncertainty wrapped around my whole body, but a familiar scent took me back to reality. I breathed in a familiar scent of fried egg, cooking spices and herbs. My door was gently opened by a little gir
My seat was positioned on the second row of third column. Leisurely drumming my fingers in the chair desk with a pad of paper whilst my feet stretched, just heels touching the floor. The room was filled with thick cold air hissed out by the aircon that took a neat spot on the ceiling.I threw a glance at the man behind me, he's the same man that sweetly wrapped his arm around my neck just a moment ago. He's wearing a mischievous smirk after pulling his head back to seal a good sitting posture, his remarkable bluish eyes were fixated to the new student. My eyes traced down to his lips, that's the very lips that breathed out a whisper to my ear. It's sexy huh?I shook my head a little to slash out the idea as I returned my attention to the dreamy eyed guy who's currently introducing himself."Uhm....I hope to have a good time with y
I'm happily looking at the demon's bridge, mesmerized how it creates a perfect circle with its reflection, I took out my camera to take another shot. As the flash made another click. I felt someone's presence."You also find it beautiful, do you?" a stranger said, giving me a tamed look."Yeah" I replied shortly, turning my gaze back to the fantastic view. I did not expect to have company at the moment. But it felt just fine to have someone to talk to.Amazed by the perfect engineering of the bridge, human touch can't be traced from the sharp design, it appears to be naturally formed. The builder of that bridge might have spent a lot of time planning and finally launching the work. Ticks of the clock.I opened my eyes only to find out that I'm at the hospital.I can even smell the fumes coming out from the only God knows what kind of machine beside me."Alyana? Hey, you are awake, yey!" it was the small voice of Rave. She was about to leave, probably to call a nurse or to inform dad, but I grabbed her arm, "W-why, Alyana?" her voice was shaky, thinking that I gripped a little hard, I relaxed my hand."You don't have to be afraid, sweet heart. I just want to ask...w-what happened? Why am I here?""Last night, when you are heading to your room, you are looking too seriously at something in your palm. Then after that, you wailed 'aaaahhh' and then you suddenly fainted" her eyes glimmered in tears, "And oh.

Life holds a lot of mystery. Truths that one can know only by revelation, but still cannot fully understand. The puzzle of how we are created, how plants and animals work magnificently in nature, and the list goes on, which science, from decades and centuries ago tries to explain. But still, everything points out to a powerful being called God in every end and conclusion.In my case, traveling to another body of a different time was a big box of mystery.To decades ago, I wanted to be the most popular writer even after ages will wilt off. Researching too much and filling my brain with facts and ideas, I didn't even enjoyed my school life, because every now and then, acceleration program will always be on my side. I never thought that environment, almost everything, would change highly in just the interval of twenty years. I saw random names of writers and scientis
Time can really be playful sometimes. It can be an enemy or a friend, well, it depends.The clouds in the sky was clustered like grasses and stones.The weather hailed a mellow ambient.I glanced at the device infront of me: 3:00 PM. I sighed and laid my head on the head rest of the car. I ran my hand over my jaw and tried to steady my thoughts. I wanna focus at the moment. I can't take out the possibility that Brylle might be here, on the current generation, but I can't neglect the probability that he might not.Hero subtly looked at me."Do you have any problem?" He managed to say that while controlling the car to take a sharp turn on the right."I just want to ask, why aren't yo
It was a rainy afternoon. When I'm spending my time in my usual routine: reading inside the library."HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA REALLY BRO?! YOU MUST BE INSANE""Ssshhhhhh" every student inside the hall hissed in chorus.I plugged my earphones and played my favorite piano piece which is the 'Tiger'"She's a nerd, bro! Don't tell us you're willing to hang out with a girl like that, HAHAHAHA"My focus was altered.One more time, bastards, I'll make you crawl out in this library."HAHAHAHAHA, YOU'RE A TOTAL IDIOT, BRYLLE---""Don't you know how to read? I think that signage was big e
