Chapter 2: Third Person's Perspective
Cassy hurried inside their house and went frozen in a period of time when she saw her father's head bleeding while picking up the broken pieces of bottles on the floor.
She glanced at her mother who was squatting on the sofa; a sofa that her father picked up at the street, two months ago. Well, her mother was still soaking up some beer, sitting pretty as if nothing happened. Cassy clenched her hands into a fist, but then, she handled her temper and helped her father.
"What just happened, dad?" She asked him, her eyes were filled in anguish.
Her dad smiled at her and told her it was okay, that it was just an accident, but Cassy was sure that her mother threw the bottle at him.
When they finished tidying up the mess, Cassy's father washed his face, however, while she was watching her father, she almost wanted to cry.
"Dad, you always suffer because of Mom, don't you have any plan of leaving her?" She said and her father got shocked that he quickly looked at his daughter.
She was serious, and she meant what she just said to him.
"Cassy, what are you talking about? You shouldn't talk like that, she's your mother. Please! Cassy! Don't tell those words again before your mother could hear you," he beseeched. Tears began to fell down in her eyes, and her voice was trembling as she said the phrase, "Dad, why are you too nice, when all you get in return was pain and suffering?"
Her father dried her hands and face, and strokes Cassy's head, he smiled at her, " Oh my dear Cassy, the world is really tough, but there are more like me in this world, so don't worry about me and your mother, she had depression, we have to show her love, to make things back to normal. Don't forget the past because of this," her dad answered softly.
"But Dad, this is..." she paused. "Cassy, no more buts', you'll understand someday when you found the right person for you," he smiled. "Remember, when you married the person and promised to heaven that you will love her through ups and downs, you should never break that promise. This is only part of some challenges for us, Cassy," he added and smirked.
"But it will never be like you and mom, I swear!" She exclaimed.
Her father sighed, "Cassy, you better prepare yourself for your job later, okay? Everything will gonna be fine, I promise you," he sweetly said and Cassy turned her back at her father.
"Fine, Dad!" She frowned.
Her father just smiled at her daughter as he watches her walked away, stamping her feet so heavy because of anger. Then he called her daughter, "Cassy," he shouted and Cassy faced at him, immediately.
"Just always remember the past, and you'll realize what I've told you," he grinned at her.
She doesn't have any idea what her dad meant and she just decided to keep going.
Cassy went out of their house when she finished her dinner. She was wearing a uniform from the restaurant that she was working for. Well yeah, she's only too young to start working, but it was her decision to helped her family.
Cassy and her father argued about it before, but she was too determined to take his authorization, she always begged him to allow her to work, she even xeroxed numerous pieces of papers with a written note, "LET ME WORK, DAD!" and pasted it around the house, daily, and it was a success, her father got annoyed and let her took the job, but of course, she had to take the 4 hours time job.
It was certainly not what he wanted for her daughter's life, but he further knew that what he can provide to them wasn't enough for a living, he was only working for the government to collect garbages in the cities, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and his income every month was too small, they had to pay monthly for their rent, electric bills, and other stuff.
"Going to work?" Drake said, when he saw her, she got startled and stared at him, but she wasn't in good mood, "well, yeah, where else to go with this uniform?" She exclaimed as she bent her brows.
"Okay, relax, Cassy. I'm just asking you," he mumbled.
She glared at him, "Whatever, Drake!" She said and left him, but Drake was too naughty and followed after her.
She got irritated and stopped walking, "why are you following me?" She yelled. "Just wanna make sure you get there safely," he explained. She rolled her eyes at him, and Drake knew that she was just not in a good mood.
"You have a problem, isn't it?" He worriedly asked. "Come on, Drake, I have to go to my work on time, you're bothering me," she weakly told him.
Drake apologized to her and told her that he will not say or asked her anything, anymore, but, on one condition! She must let him walked her to her workplace. She wanted to refuse to take the condition, but she had no choice because she must be at her work, on time.
An hour later, Drake was secretly watching Cassy outside the restaurant, well, half of the restaurant was assembled in glasses, that was why he can watch her from the outside.
Drake was smiling as he leaned his back on the wall near beside the restaurant. His heart fluttered as he watches her. Cassy was really a hardworking individual, that's why he loves her.
He stood outside the restaurant for two hours, he often does that, but Cassy never knew about it.
After Cassy's work, she went home immediately, the door was locked, so she had to open it with her duplicate key. She entered slowly and noticed her father sleeping on the sofa. She sighed and put a blanket on him.
She glanced at her father for a while and felt emotional. Then she remembered her mom, she went to her parents' room and saw her mother, sleeping peacefully on the bed. Her anger began to heat up her whole body, so she just left her and quietly went straight to her own room.
While Cassy was resting on her bed, trying to sleep, her father's words popped inside her brain.
She was too curious about what her dad told her.
"Remember the past?" She whispered and kept thinking about what were those words means.
She was almost gone insane that she couldn't sleep, she tried hard to find an answer, but nothing was running inside her brain.
" Waaaah! What did he mean?" Her brain screamed as she thumps her feet and hands on her bed and after a while, she rolled her body and laid her face on the pillow, she felt that her brain was in pain, thinking the same thoughts the whole night.
"Cassy, just rest," she heard her own voice and closed her eyes, "yeah, that's a great idea, I guess," she whispered.
Chapter 3: Cassy's PerspectiveI woke up and got frozen as I noticed that I was not at my house, I was inside an unfamiliar place to me, a library. I was in the middle of the place that I could see the whole room, it was a huge library and it was really stunning. In my entire life, I've never seen this huge before- it was big as a palace, and what amazed me, even more, was that it has unexpected leeways for people and the fact that it towering 4 storey."Wow, just wow," my own creation was stuck in this place that I couldn't even step my feet, I just continued to scan the whole place using my eyes. The books are really amazing, the whole place was neat and clean. But I was too curious why there's nobody in here? not even a single person, but the real question was, how did I get in here? I couldn't recall a
Chapter 4: Cassy's Perspective A random voice filled the library which woke me up, and I was shocked to see how many students were here, sitting in every corner of the place, reading different books, laughing with their friends, which made me envious. I wished I had someone like them, with whom I could share my interest, my hobbies, and hang out with, but there was just part of my dreams. I sighed but then, I remembered what happened to me.I wonder why the light didn't fetch me yet? I'm confused, I thought."Come on, Cassy, don't overthink things again, just walked around, it is much better," I mumbled.I roamed around the place and I noticed that no one could see me nor touch me. I was certainly afraid at that moment.I've tried to talk with the students that were passing by but they really couldn't see me. Their eyes never meet mine either.I wanted to cry but it was a waste of time, the fact that nothing will gonna change if I cried. So I lifted my chin up, and just watched the st
CHAPTER 5: ZON'S PERSPECTIVEI guess it was a hapless day! I was fixing the books, organizing them one by one to where it belongs. When I heard Angela's voice, my Ex-girlfriend. My heart was racing too fast, and it was competing with my mind. Honestly, I felt uncomfortable and nervous!"Haiist, not again!" I murmured.I sighed and calmed down, I went down at the ladder and tried to avoid meeting them, but I was too late, yeah, I was too late because, the moment that my feet touched the floor, they were right in front of me, literally. And it was the vastly horrible day ever.I was speechless when I saw her, I didn't know how will I supposed to approach her, and of course, also her new boyfriend.Well, it was absolutely embarrassing, because while I was feeling worried about how will I approach them,they just walked pass by me, as if they have never seen me. It was ac
Chapter 6: Zon's PerspectiveI was still shocked by what happened. I couldn't believe that people like them really exist in this world.Well, I have read an article before, about people from another world.It was about a hundred years ago, when this world we live in, faces such a situation like this, that there are few people who can travel here. It was very preposterous to believe that, who could even imagine that aside from our world, there was another world that exists somewhere? Yet, it was genuine, but according to the article, only their souls can travel here. When they were asleep, their souls leave their bodies and started wandering here. But not all people could travel in here, only a few of them.It was also actually written in our history, but as time passes by, they have forgotten about it, because no one has experienced such circumstances like it after a hundred years.
Chapter 7: Zon's Perspective I took a deep breath and went closer to her, "You came back?" I said but I guessed, she didn't hear me."I didn't expect that you can actually go back..." I hesitated when I saw her eyes, it's swollen, and she was still tearing up, and she wiped it secretly. And then I noticed some bruises on her arms, I looked at her, and then she rapidly hid her hands at her back. I wonder what happened to her? I thought as I stared at her."Are you okay?" I asked as I looked at her eyes again, to examine her emotion, but what happened next was something so unprecedented for me, my heart twisted promptly, because of her eyes; her eyes implied too much suffering, I could feel it, her emotions and her pain, they were deep, but why? "Who are you?" My mind whispered. What's happening to her in their world? And it made me crazy once again, she was absolutely mysterious.But then,
CHAPTER 8: ZON'S PERSPECTIVE- A few weeks later-Cassy came back while I was busy with my research."How was your research?" Cassy asked, and I frowned as I shook my head, for I found nothing after a month! Yeah, as in no information about them.She went near me and sat on the floor, "That's okay! We can found it soon," she smiled, and her blue eyes shine again. Those eyes again, it's so pretty."Gosh! What am I up to?!" I thought, and blaming her eyes!Well, yeah we've been seeing each other for almost more than a month, but not daily because we didn't know when could she appeared, here again, that's the problem. ******* A weeks ago ******I waited at my secret room every day, waiting for her to come bec
Chapter 9: Cassy's PerspectiveIt was a cold rainy night, and what I and that guy, named Zon's situation was really amazing, we were meeting to found out about two worlds, his world and of course, my own world, but I couldn't find anything.How amazing, wasn't it? The things you thought were a dream, was actually real? Well, we must expect the unexpected. Who knows what else could we see in the future.Beep!I heard my phone rang and when I saw it, it was Drake. I opened his message and honestly, it made me smile."Hey, how are your bruises? Next time be careful with your steps, I don't want to see you getting hurt, and how sad you did not wait for me! You went home early, however, it's fine, see you tomorrow!" He texted with a smiling emoji's every sentence from his message.Actually, I lied, my bruises were because of Berna, but I didn't want to tell him
Chapter 10: Cassy's PerspectiveIt's been days after that awkward moment with Drake and I still couldn't forget about it. Huhu, I was really uncomfortable with him, not in a negative way, but because of the fact that I knew that he was waiting for me."Hey, are you listening?" Zon asked."I'm sorry, what was it again?" I apologized and rubbed my head, and he rolled his eyes, hehe."Urgh! I've been speaking to you since recently, and you were not listening to me then?" He was exhausted and pouted his mouth."I'm sorry," I apologized to him one more time."It's okay, anyways here is the address of Anne Macney...""Really, you found it already?" I shouted and he got surprised when I stood up in enthusiasm."Hey, don't get too excited," he laughed and suddenly changed mood."Yes, but she is in a mental hospita
