“Farewell mother, I am shutting you from my life from now on.” Wayne left before the sun had set. It was pitch dawn, he carried his backpack and walked outside the house. He didn’t look back, his memories from his home were nothing but fear, pain and suffering. The young man partially limps as he felt the pain from the beating that he got. It swollen badly, but he kept walking away. He finally got a place to rest when he reached the closest terminal. The young man waited for a ride. He sat on empty bench with flickering lights above. He sighed and laid his body. It was nothing but peaceful, he thought about freedom. The young man sees himself like a bird who escape the cage of abuse.
“Sir are you heading somewhere?” It took a while before a tricycle arrived.
“Yes, take me to my sanctuary.” Wayne picked up his belonging and told the driver his address. The young man got in, he was brought the place were told
Give her a chance “I wonder why he’s absent?” Jill wondered. The girl sat on his chair with the same pose he usually those. It was the old corner in t he back close near the windows, the young man stares in the window while girls that passed by wonders what goes on inside his head. She ignored the random blabbering of her teacher and sulked while thinking of him. April noticed her gloomy friend and decided to sneak beside her. She sat on Jill’s friends; her blank state best friend didn’t notice her until she tapped her shoulder. “Are you okay?” She concerningly asked. Jill stared at the window for a second, she thought about the days they used to hang out, the fun memories, and dates. The girl realized the ephemeral and couldn’t to pout because of it. Everything can turn upside down, life is short, and consistently moving. She sighed and ignored April’s words. Agitated, the impatience friend wanted to smack her in the head. But realize the love sick she had, she already had a glim
I’ll love you until I can Jill reached the address that Anastasia sent. The girl wondered how she knew about it this place, and how come Wayne told the little girl before herself. It’s her first time A sense of jealousy spark inside her, she pouted before she approached the gates. There must be some reason why’s she’s here? The girl pondered. She had the gist that the two started living, and her reaction was flushed and slightly annoyed when she thought of it. “I better find it out myself.” She shook her head and opened the gates. Everything felt surreal, yesterday was a painful rejection but a light of hope when he said it was possible. That alone gave her hope to keep going, the two hasn’t started to confess yet, and thus she believed that she had a chance. He was probably tried to be nice, but that didn’t faze Jill. She loved him for a long time, and he couldn’t simply just back out. Unless he
Grateful The midterm was just two days ahead. Students cramping to review to finish the project before the deadlines was a common sight to see. April was one of the tardy student who only does her school requirements few days before the given sate. Alongside with Hori and Joy, the two kept bugging Jill. It was 7 am in the morning. The number of students walking in the pathway keep growing. All had the same depressing eyes, exams weren’t a fan favorite in the school, except for smart ass students. But majority of the student in their school was bunch of students having no clue on what they wanted in the future. Joy sighed when she saw Aizen on the school grounds. She was avoiding him for weeks, and somehow hope that he would come visit her out of concern. Thus, she realized there’s no point of chasing him, the guy he likes clearly has no feelings for her. But deep inside Joy feelings remained solid, but not bright enough for her to confessed. The girl sulk and went back
FORGIVENESS THAT HE THOUGHT HE COULDN’T GIVE There was still an hour left before he met his father, but Wayne wanted to leave already. The class was still ongoing as he waited. He was bothered with questions, he did say that he wanted to talk to him, which was something that rarely happens. He assumed that he already went back and heard the news, but what now? Will he call him to come home or disown him? He was troubled the whole time. The classroom was quiet, there wasn't much to do. The teacher writes the lesson on the board, while students copy it without question. Jill noticed the weary Wayne, she tapped on his shoulder to ask what’s wrong. “Are you okay? You seem troubled. Do you want to share your problem?” Asked Jill. The young man looked away, avoiding the answer to the question. But he knew Jill would keep buzzing about it, and so after 20 pokes on his cheeks he opened up. “My fathe
