"Thanks to you."
Tiffany's smile vanished as she glared at me. "Why aren't you surprised?" The tone of her voice changed, making it seem like she was pissed. It makes me laugh that I almost believe that she's a sweet and kind girl. It's funny now that I think about it; she's really suspicious since the beginning. Did I forgive her because she's pretty? I must have been really benevolent to her that she's doing all this without thinking about the consequences.
"Jade told you, didn't she?"
Tiffany's expression grew grimmer after she mentioned Jade's name. "That wench! I know she'll ruin everything all over again." She stared at me with those cold and indifferent eyes. Contrary to those bright smiles she showed us the first time, she looks filled with hatred.&
“Your wrists are both swollen. You should be careful when you move them.”I felt Kyril’s glare behind me after hearing what the doctor said. He warned me before that he’ll be pissed if I got hurt. Look at him glaring at me as if he wasn’t staring at me with his soft gaze before. “It’ll heal soon if you just be careful and apply the medicine I gave you.” The doctor smiled as she patted my back. “Be careful from now on, okay? Your wrists look so bad that it surprised me for a minute.”All I could do was let out a forced laugh. After that, Kyril insisted that he’ll accompany me till we arrived at the Okami Complex. We’re riding in their car, and I don’t think I could reject his offer since he looks pissed after what happened. Is he perturbed abo
I opened my eyes as soon as I realized that I had fallen asleep. "Kyros?" I called for his name, but he was nowhere to be found. My eyes landed on the window, and it looked like it was already morning outside. Did Kyros leave as soon as I fell asleep? I don't think so, since he thought I was already asleep when he came into my room. Am I disappointed that I woke up without him here? Of course, I am. I thought it was our chance to talk, but he left."Lili! What happened to your wrists?"My classmates were making a fuss as I rolled my eyes after getting on my seat. "Are you sure you're going to attend the training later?" Mitch asked with a worried tone. "I can tell Angelica that you won't be able to attend if you want."I patted Mitch's arm. "It's fine
“That’s right. I’m gay.”My attention went to Mitch after he admitted that. But what’s more interesting? The panicked look on Tiffany’s face since nothing was going her way.It’s so fun to watch her taste her own medicine.“What’s more? Your respectable captain’s in a relationship with a guy. And that guy is—“Wow, she’s really getting desperate.One of the upperclassmen laughed and smacked the captain’s shoulder, deliberately cutting off Tiffany. “I freaking knew it. I thought you were getting all mushy, so I didn&rsqu
Lunch break ended, and we all went back to the classroom. We have some free time for ourselves since the next teacher was absent. Taurus decided not to waste this free time and prepare the things we’ll need tomorrow for the science fair experiment. They are trying to ask permission to keep the necessities for our experiment in the science lab.“Lili.”I looked behind and saw Tiffany.Why is she calling my name as if we’re close?“What?” I didn’t care about how I acted since the others weren’t there. Now that I roamed my vision, Tiffany and I are right here.Tiffany glared at me and didn’t answer.
Lili’s POV“Are you really okay?”I looked at Kyril, tending to my wound since the nurse wasn’t there. “What?”“Was getting hurt like this part of your plans?”The tone of Kyril’s voice was similar to the one my older brother would often use when I got hurt. “No. It was Tiffany’s decision to hurt me like this.” I said, which made Kyril look up at my face. Why is he looking at me with those same eyes as before? It makes me feel uncomfortable… “Believe it or not, I’m not planning anything like that.”“Was
I didn't expect Taurus to be willing to help me with my plan. "Thank you for accompanying me." Taurus patted my head which caught me off guard. "I know it's already hard being Kyros's favorite. It's going to be okay." He said as he bid me goodbye and walked away. That was rare, but I didn't hate it. Instead, it was really great to let these things out sometimes. Miss Kyrary wasn't home, and only Ethan was there. He asked me about the school, but he didn't dig deeper as to why I was already home when it was still not time for dismissal. I went to my room and slammed my body on the bed. "That was tiring." The ceiling makes me feel drowsy, and now I don't know if I should take a bath before going to sleep. "No." I got up and looked at myself. I'm still wearing my uniform, and some blood that came from my arm stained my uniform. I should just wash this before it stays there forever. As I said, I went to the laundry room and washed my uniform after changing into casual clothes. It'd
“I thought you wanted to get along with Tiffany?” I was dumbfounded after I heard Kyros ask that before I could leave. “What? You saw how she— Do you like her now?” I was pissed. I’m the victim yet it feels like I’m being blamed. “Wait, why do you even like me?” After I asked that, Kyros couldn’t answer. I don’t know if he chose not to answer or if he just doesn’t have an answer, but either way, I’m not sure about his feelings anymore. “Leave me alone.” I walked away and didn’t bother listening to whatever he wanted to say— if he will say anything else, but he stood there in silence. “Do you want to meet Silver?” My forehead creased after Kyril greeted me with that. Did he hear my conversation with Kyros? But wait, who’s Silver? I wasn’t even answering yet, but Kyril already pulled me into his car and drove me to their house. When he said silver, he was talking about the white cat that he adopted. I can’t remember the name I gave it, but it wasn’t Silver. “Oh? Did you think I ch
“That’s right.” Hearing that causes me to feel this weird annoying feeling inside my guts. “Lily was— No. I don’t want to say it. I shouldn’t be the one saying it.” Kyril said after almost telling it to me. Why though? Why can’t he just tell me who Lily is? “Why? You can say how you met her.” Kyril must have noticed that I’m really curious about this girl named Lily. “Fine. Lily was a sick girl that I met in the hospital where Kyrara was staying before.” He said. “She wasn’t able to go out because of her fragile body. Although I was irritated with her at first, we became good friends. But Kyros came and snatched her away from me just like how he did to everybody else.” Snatched? “Was she yours?”“I mean… I didn’t mean it like that.” Kyril said. “What I meant is that I was her friend first, but Kyros came and snatched her away.”Does it mean Lily chose Kyros over Kyril? “Did you want her all for yourself?” Kyril nodded. “Let me guess, Kyros wanted to become her friend too that’s wh
