Chapter 17: Cassy's PerspectiveAfter a few weeks, I finally moved on about what happened to Drake, he kept sending me messages, telling me that he was okay, that I didn't have to worry and just kept myself busy with my studies. Well, it was popping out inside my head sometimes but I tried to ignore it, just what my Dad said.And Berna? Of course, she didn't stop teasing me, but I was lucky that she has to prepare herself for the volleyball tournament, that was why my whole schooldays lately was so silent, for the very first time. No one was spilling of waters to me or to my foods, no one was blocking my paths and of course, no one was molesting me.Berna was the captain of their team, that's why she had to focus on each member more than the others. How I wished they had an unending tournament, but that was only a dream. Once the tournament was done, everything would be back to normal.After schooldays, I

I wanted to ask her things to puzzled up what was really happening to her, and where she got her bruises but she brought a topic first before me, haist, a sighed."Why did you break up?" She asked and I curved my forehead."You mean, me and Angela?" I asked."Who else, you just said she was your first and last girlfriend, you can't break up to someone who is not your partner, unless you lied," she said and each word was said in a hard stressed, wow, she did that for the first time, she was irritated, I guessed. Haha, but she doesn't look scary."Well, do you want to hear about what happened, it's a long story?" I smirked at her."If only you wanted to share,"
Chapter 19: HER STORYZon's Perspective"My life?" She whispered too weak and I could see her fake smile."My life is something you don't want to experience. I am one of the poor in our class that been bullied by our classmates. No freedom, no happiness, no friends, except Drake, who is always there beside me, to protect me, but he transferred to another city because of some reason. It never easy, bruises everywhere, but what could I do?" She sighed.So, it's the reason why she has bruises last time, but they were too big, I wonder how students could do such things to her. I looked at her with sympathy."Why don't you transfer also?" I asked."I can't, my father has no money to support me, and my only opportunity is that school, I am one of those scholar students, the school is supporting me, but then I still need money for my projects, that's why I am working at night."

Chapter 20: The MountainCassy's PerspectiveI just followed Zon without any idea where were we going. The night was beautiful and peaceful.It took a few minutes before we went to a big house, he entered and I just followed him inside."Wait for me here, I'm just going to change my clothes, is that okay?" He asked and I nodded my head. He left me here alone, and I couldn't stop myself not to roam my eyes, his house was too big and well, I was suspecting that he really did love the color white, everything I could see was black and white, just like his private library.Later on, something caught my attention, there was a wall with numerous types of medals and certificates. It was all Zon's achievements, and there I found out that he was a top student, he also competed in various competitions both sports and academics. Well, there was a photo of him and an old man on the top of his achievements, I guessed it was his father."What are you looki
Chapter 21: Her SmileZon's PerspectiveI just let her whimper as my heart was jerking.I just watched her cried and let out her grief. How I wished she realized what family meant for. How I also wished that my family was alive.After a few jiffies of crying, Cassy went near the fence and leaned her hands on it but then she frowned for she couldn't touch it. She was staring at the skies and the beam of the moonlight was flashing on her face, and I could see the color of her eyes clearly. And then she grinned in mitigation.It was the first time I saw her smiling without any agony or sadness in her eyes. I was stunned by how hilarious she was."Thank you, Zon! You enlightened me," He called out my name sincerely.The wind was drifting her hair to the left side of his head, we were speechless, only our eyes were disseminating. She was beautiful in my eyes at

I whispered smiling, and then, I heard a cry again.I went out of my room and I knew already that the lamenting voice was from my mother. When I looked at what she was doing I just stared at her. She was crying like a kid on the sofa, gripping her knees, astonished, and quietly drinking her random beer, as usual. "Haiisst!" I sighed.I wasn't sure what to feel about her but I remembered what Zon told me and I sighed then I just stared at my mom. I covered myself on the curtain that was attached to my room's door. I was secretly observing how much did she change until I heard her humming."Hmmmm...hmmmm...hmmmm," she was giggling alone as she hums.
