Demi eyed me playfully. I knew he was finally there. I rolled my eyes for my friends. She laughs while waving on Alforo. I prayed a few times that Klaud would have appeared, but it just failed. Watching Demi lamented on me, making me stiff, especially since I saw Alforo glance at me. I didn't stare at him and just focused on my drink. I am already sipping when I caught his gaze on me.
"Will you watch later?" one of Alforo friends asked.
My decision was complete, but Demi was ahead of me. I frowned at her as her lips parted. I drifted my eyes on Alforo who's watching my every reaction. I looked away and turned to Demi laughing.
"Of course!" she muttered.
I breathed slowly and stopped talking. I am thinking of a good reason to excuse myself for their game. I knew he was there and I could not avoid that. I stared at my juice when I realized something. Klaud was busy, and all I knew was that he was able to say excuse properly. Maybe I should just say that we're got to see each other.
I'm all smiled when my gaze darted at Alforo. I don't know how he will feel, especially since he caught me grinning for no reason.
"Alforo don't forget your story!" Rondier smirk.
An unusual foreign feeling made me gasped for air. I kept my disposition and did not express any opinions.
"What? You don't like, Cynthia? Haidy?" his friend teased him.
"Spill it, Alforo?" Demi hissed.
I was surprised there. Demi smirked while twisting her lips, looking at me. I glared at her and looked up.
My irritation subsided. He's always making anyone astonished by just looking at them. I noticed that at first, so I did not want to be with him. Whenever he's near, I'm uncomfortable.
"Who is it?"
His eyes bore to me. I caught the puffiness of his eyes facing me. To sense that I'm always out of my comfort when his gazed were on me, I'd ever find myself allured at him.
My throat dried up as I just lowered my gaze. I know it's rude that way, but I think its better. Because I also do not want him to approach me. And I draw a line assuring myself for it.
The afternoon after class. I'm spacing out for no apparent reason. One thing that made the air acidity is when Demi tore her eyes and held my hand. She didn't even hear my idea! Damn!
I let him pull me into the sea of people. I know it's not a big deal for our school to watch this game, but little by little you still found yourself watching some. I was filled with so many yells, noise, cheer. I immediately found Alforo's eye. My heart raced, and just like it, a demon on my system awakens. I even noticed his stare at me for a long time.
Demi laughs as she steps closer to greet, Alforo. Alforo gaze fixed on me. His lips twisted.
"She doesn't want to go, unless if it's Klaud...: Demi spilt.
He laughed as Alforo turned to me. His glanced were too long; that's its kind of intimidating.
"Just cheer for us, Riani. Or Alforo!"
I could not smile back because I felt like I was hanging in the air. I'm not cheering for him! My cheeks warmed when I saw everyone staring at me. I sighed defeated. I gave a sour smile while the anxiousness in my chest was like a drum.
We're not close enough. I am not used to calling him by his name. It still sounds new to me. Demi screamed as I just stared at them, empty. I could feel the tension, especially when Alforo stared at me for a while. His hawk-like eyes made me numb in a different way. I can't quite imagine why I feel this way. It's odd to felt something for him.
Everyone is gone wild for a few seconds. I kept watching everything while I was shocked by Alforo lying down. Fuck! I was not paying attention, and it seems that he sprains his ankle. I did not expect that! Damn!
It was a very fast game. Our school win but instead of celebrating they're so concerned about Alforo. I almost choked when Haidy approached behind Demi. She was on Alforo right side while I was struggling if I'll be staring or not. Haidy touches Alforo's arms, seemingly serious but I feel his caress indicates something else.
I couldn't stand staring at the two of them. Others are curious and just stare. I even saw Cynthia staring at Haidy while Alforo glanced at her.
"There's nothing to worry about, Alforo. You're still handsome in my eyes." She said enthusiastically.
My face turned red, and I almost choked on what Haidy said. Her friends yell, and instead of getting along with, the irritation on me builds up even more. I never had the chance to eyed Alforo. Only once after seeing his smile at what Haidy said.
I averted my gaze as our eyes met. He licked his lips, and a hidden smile irk. I didn't wait for Demi to talk to Alfred and I knew she didn't notice me either.
I sat on the bench as I watched a silhouette behind me. I thought someone was passing by, but I was surprised to see Alforo dressed up. I shook my head, blinking twice to say I'm not hallucinating. I was too caught off guard to see him here with me alone.
"What are you doing here?"
He didn't answer. He just looks at me with his usual perpetual scowl. I am too stunned, especially when I see him struggling to sit.
He smiled cockily, holding my palm.
"What are you doing here, alone?"
I rolled my eyes. "You didn't even answer my question, Alforo…"
His lips twisted, watching me in awe.
"Just go back there, Alforo ..." I said.
He smiled teasingly, something that caught my attention. My eyes rested on him. His expression was soft, and I noticed how shallow his deep eyes. Fuck! My face heated when my eyes were stayed for too long.
"Why?" the leer on his eyes makes me stiff.
The trembling in my chest was like a drum at what I heard. Something very foreign to me, it seems wrong to feel like this. It was as if a tickling sensation lording my senses. And if only I didn't notice the ghost smile on his lips, I wouldn't be enlightened.
"Just go back there! In your fling Alforo!" I stuttered.
His brows furrowed.
"I don't have flings, Riani…"
I cleared my throat when I realized the side of his lips rose and curved. I looked away from him and looked behind me. But I saw nothing, we are alone here on the bench, and it felt surreal for me. Gradually I realized what I had been said. I simply stared at him. I watched the twitch of his lips."What? You were treated with a kiss, Alforo?" I asked gently.The bitterness d
It's so unrealistic, surreal. His eyes were a bit daunting, and it reflects like mine. It felt futile, to imagine those unrelenting nightmare. I immediately noticed Alforo's critical stare at me. Though, I made a serious straight face to lighten up my mood.I did not look at him, but his few glances did not escape me. This time, the urge of determination to repel his gaze sent chives on me. But there's always one thing, I can't figure out what. His jaw clenches when I finally darted my eyes on him.
The next few days were a bit tough, though I can always call Klaud for help though he's been busy for an immersion. I did not deny that either because the next day, he came voluntarily.It was then a fine lunch break, I mingled with Alforo's group, while Demi was noisy next to me. I did not immediately realize that Klaud was coming to our table. He's in a white long-sleeve and black slacks that made me watch him in awe. I smiled at him as my eyes traced his tiny motion."Sorry for my absence guys!" he said Alfred laughed as I glided my eyes up to Alforo who seemed to have lost his appetite as he watched Klaud's hand behind me. The traced of uneasiness with his stare obviously making it more foreign.Demi shook her head. She turned to Alforo, who was staring at Klaud and me."Your immersion is over, Klaud?" Demi asked.Klaud looked at me. "Not yet,""When will that end? Demi grinned teasingly. I sighed then smirked at my friend. My lips parted as I saw Klaud's momentary stare at me.
Words are powerful that it blurred what you should literally feel. It concealed those thoughts that keep running to you. Alforo's watching me with hawk-like eyes, it's menacing but alluring at the same time.He turned to me intently, in the dark, I could see him still looking at me with those piercing eyes. I cleared my throat as I strayed the topic.
The day ended smoothly. Alforo's gaze was on me as I bid my goodbye. Somehow, I find ease and comfort with him. I can't deny that. But what made struggling is a nightmare with him. And it seems it's not just a usual dream, and it's connected, but the image of it blur immediately.My eyes found Alforo. He's wearing his jersey with a number six on it. He caught me staring, and it's too bad he chuckled teasingly. He turned to me immediately. I'm with Demi whistling at Alforo. I woke up early on Saturday. I have done my routine. I went down and turned to Mommy. She smiled, looking at me while I'm too preoccupied."Where will you go, hija?" His gaze remained on me. I saw the moment his eyes softened at what he heard. The serene of the wind caressing my back made me gasp, not because of the cold it brought but because of Alforo reaction. "Seems familiar?" he chuckled.I ave

The paintings on our wall made me feel ecstatic. I smile as I watch one of our longest maids here. She's old, yes. But still managing to serve us. My eyes found her staring at me. The freckles on her eyes as she smiled at me made me wondered for something.Can I saw my parents still living with that age? I sighed for a moment. I don't know why that suddenly entered my mind. But the thought of that sent chills on me. I don't want to think about it, but it's too good that someday you'll be practical to accept things you didn't want. I sighed."How are you hija..." her voice was always soothing.I smiled sweetly. "I'm fine, La.""How was your vacation?" I asked nonchalantly."It's still the same." she chuckled."I rested somehow," she added.I nodded and approached her completely. My eyes then glided at the painting she's cleanin
