I sat on one of the few chairs on the balcony, with my eyes on the building before me. I slowly puffed out smoke from my mouth. Yep, I hadn’t stopped smoking
There she was, walking around her room carrying a basket. It was Apple, Apple Sun. It seemed like more than a year had passed since we had stood in this balcony together. How much amazed she was that day to see the view to her bedroom. “So you always see me?” he had asked.
Before I knew it my mind was digging into the memory where she was dancing. How perfect her steps and turns had been. She had looked like a princess in a fairy tale. A true perfection. I still wondered why she never entered dome dance competition since she was really good in dancing, guess I too could draw but had never entered any drawing competitions let alone a competition of any sort.
Maybe her dancing was the same as my drawing talent. I found my mind digg
I stared at the flying moth that was going round and round the light bulb. “If it wasn’t ’for that boy my daughter wouldn’t be here,” my mother said from the other side of the room.“Yeah, I sometimes wish I could see him, but the nurses said he never mentioned his name, he only dropped her near the hospital gate ,” Plot replied.“Do you think he was one of the kidnappers?” my mother asked.“I doubt,”I sat upright avoiding trying to ignore their conversation. My eyes stared at the smaller dresser which was a few meters from. The broken mirror with few photographs reminded of the day she broke it. How angry she had been that day and how much she had regretted breaking it. Her leg moved out the duvet cover. She placed it in the floor. Slowly she walked toward it using the bed for balance.Crutches were starting to ignore her. She needed to get back to her feet. She still had unfinishe
HUNT MESMICK’S KILLERSI stared at the wrecked up door before me. I took one last breath before slowly moving my hand to it. I knocked twice then waited. The laughter inside caught my ear. as I knocked again.I heard footstep approaching the door as my body started sweating. What was I doing? Why was I here? What was I going to say to him?He pulled the door open as his face appeared. “Siren,” he said in pure shock.“Hi,” I nervously said forcing out a smile. “Can I come in?”“Sure, yeah please,” opening the door for me.I walked pass him as the cigarette smoke entered my nose. The sight of most in the room created by the smoke caught my attention not that I minded. “The bandages, they are gone,”“I got them removed yesterday,” I replied walking toward the couches which I recognized were occupied.Three familiar faces caught my attent
NEW PATH?Hendrik’s body hands strangled me.“Now die bitch,”His grip got tighter and tighter, as I tried pulling his huge hand off my neck. “St…”My eyes rapidly opened as the sound of railing sirens filled my ears.I gently moved the blanket off my body, while I stepped on the floor. I slowly forced myself up. Crazy enough my body didn’t feel that aching anymore.I took baby steps heading to the door. I pulled the door open and walked inside the dark sitting room. The memories of Jin running around the sitting room while pulling my long skirt flashed in my mind.I quickly shook that memory off my head as I walked to the balcony.Cold wind blew my hair as I stared at the k-building which was a few meters from the L-building I was in.My eyes rushed at every corner of the flat window visible to my eyes, but there was no sign of her.“Sh
CLOSURE I stared at my mother who was folding the few clothes in their baskets.“Can I take a break?” I asked.“You can eat here,” she replied handing me my lunch box.“I mean outside,”She rose an eyebrow.“I won’t be long. Please.”She let out a sigh. “One of the girls will go with you,”“No, I will be fine on my own. You don’t have to worry about me, plus I am healing,”“Fine, but two minutes,”I smiled shortly as I got up.“Two minutes,”“Yes mother,”I walked out the crowded shop. I leaned against the wall as I slid my hand in my jacket’s pocket. I came out with a cigarette and lighter.Slowly I burnt it but as I slipped it inside my mouth. The scent of smoke filled my nose. I rested my head on the wall as I stared at the blue sky.I
LET ME SAVE YOUWe stared at the view of the Mino city. “it’s been long since we sat here,” I began.“Yeah,”I turned to face her. “Are you really getting married?” I asked in a more serious tone.I noticed her face turning pale. “You don’t want to, do you?”“I have to go,”I held her hand. “please get me down,”“Apple, I can help you,”Tears gathered her eyes. “How? How can you help me Siren?”Her voice sounded sad and hurt at the same time.“How can you help me if my grandfather has already arranged a marriage for me? A marriage with a man don’t even know?”My eyes widen. “Let run away,” my voice came out unclear.“Run away?” she asked.“Yeah, let run away from Mino city let go far away,”“How abo
FAMILY I walked up the stairs, feeling tired. A woman walked pass we me almost knocking me down. “Aah,”“I sorry,” she said picking up one of my crutches that had fell on the floor.“I am fin,” I replied that us when I recognized her.Long nevy black hair, eyeshadow and a red lipstick. She wore a shirt red dress, revealing her tiny thighs. “lola,”Her eyes widen. “Sister Siren,”“You okay,” I asked reaching my hand to her small face, which I recognized had a few bruises.The broken lip was what caught my eye. She jerked back with tears gathered in her eyes.“I am sorry?” before running up the stairs.I felt my heart shatter into a million pieces. I was sure she was also in the same trouble as I was, having to have sex with every men in order to get a place to stay.I needed to help her, help her get out of that li
MY ARTThe smoke slowl skid out my lips which were pressed into a thin line. Their eyes seemed to move with me as they passed by. “Hi pretty,” a black haired man said passing by.After that sentence I felt my stomach hurt. It was just disgusting for someone as old as Plot to make that remark, especially to someone who was young enough to be his daughter. Something about his eyes seemed shady.The footsteps approaching caught my attention as the cigarette on my hand dropped on the ground. It had to be him, Jack.A familiar face appeared instead of Jack. “shit,” I mumbled pulling my hoodie up.“Siren, what are you doing out here so late?” she asked, almost pulling out her pistol from her coat.Shit April had just saw me. What was I going to tell her about being out at night.“Hi,” I nervously said.“You almost scared me you death,” she said with her with
