“How many buckets of water are we going to need?” Hea Bum asked while looking at the plants with his hands in the back of his head.
“Ten would be enough,” said Jan Lee while holding the rope.
“What? Grht! That is so tiring,” he shook his head with a downed shoulder.
“Do not worry, I will be the one to carry it. All you have to do is to sprinkle the water into the plants,” Jan Lee responded.
“Uh! That would be nice. I agree with that,” Hea Bum replied while holding the sprinkler, giving him a thumbs up. “Hey! How is Angela? Did she send you a message?” he asked while grinning at Jan Lee.
“What? I do not know. Of course, she would be in her house right now or with other friends,” Jan Lee answered while raising his shoulders.
“Hmm! Anyway, we will know it. If you do not send her a message, then maybe she will call you. Hey! Jan Lee, are you numb? I think she would call you that. Hah ha! ha!” then he acts calling teasing him. “Just kidding
“Yeah! I feel you have changed right now. I noticed you have become talkative, hah ha! ha! At first, I was having a hard time getting your attention, but now, you are the one volunteering to reach out. By the way, thanks for giving me your time. I really appreciate it. You know what, it is boring here sometimes. I am tired of doing nothing. I wanted something to take away my boredom. But thanks to my pet Cathy for being with me always,” told Angela. “Cathy? Is that a dog, a cat, or a bird?” Jan Lee asked. “A cat,” said Angela while caressing the head of her cat. “Well, good that you have Cathy. If she had not been there, what would you do?” Jan Lee curiously asked her. “I do not know. Maybe, meet some friends and having fun with them. But I am not used to it. It is easy for me to think of going home immediately whenever I go somewhere,” she replied. “What? Hah ha! ha! It seems that I am not the only one possessing that character. I think I fou
“Hey! Brother. Open up. It’s eight in the morning,” said Hea Bum knocking at the door waking Jan Lee. “Grht! Ah!!! what bro?” Jan Lee responds as he yawned and stretched his arms. “Open up! I wanted to show you something,” said Hea Bum while carrying something. “Okay! Wait for a second,” Jan Lee answered as he gets up from his bed. After opening the door, Hea Bum shows something from his hand, “Do you know this one? Mama told me to bring this to the shop for repair. Can you accompany me in the town?” “Ah! Yeah sure. Awesome, that is a Polaroid camera. Where did she get that?” Jan Lee asked and took the camera from Hea Bum’s hand. “It is a gift from her friend, but there is something to repair on it. So, she told me this morning that we find a shop that can repair this one. But hey! They are in the kitchen waiting for us. Come on,” said Hea Bum giving Jan Lee a gesture to follow him. “Yeah! Okay, wait, I need to put this camera
“Your brother is waiting for you,” said Angela pointing to Hea Bum standing in front of the shop. “I will stop and stand in the middle of this street if you are not going to tell me,” Jan Lee responded and attempts to stay in the midst waiting for her response. Angela feels worried and she realizes that he is serious and eager to know what she had said a while ago so she replied, “You were asleep last night and forgot to answer my question when I asked what is your plan about us. That is why I asked you again this time.” “Ah! Now I know. I see. ...I am thinking…You will know it when we meet again,” Jan Lee answered while walking backward going to his motorbike where Hea Bum waits. “I will remember what you say. I will wait for your call,” she replied while gesturing with her hand. Jan Lee smiled, waved his hand, and together with Hea Bum rode on the bike. Angela waved her hand as well and she watches them rode away. Then one of the employees g
“Yes! Of course, I will not let you go,” said Angela with her arms around Jan Lee’s waist. Then she turns her head to Jan Lee and opens their visors so she can freely look into his eyes. In her excitement, she raises her arms and lifts them up in the air. “Wow! This is so good. I like this. Hope we can do this again,” she said and embraced Jan Lee. Jan Lee smile and feeling electrified. He does not make any reaction. But somewhat silent and thinks about his next move. While they stop as the red light signaled, Jan Lee notices the guy he saw months ago. The guy who rode his bike with flowers in his front and a gift hanged in his hand grip. He was calling a girl over his phone at that moment. When Jan Lee saw him that time, the guy was not carrying gifts and flowers anymore because the girl was in his back seat riding with him. Jan Lee shook his head and smiled. “Wow! What a beautiful incident. Good for you, dude. You did it,” he said to himself. After minutes,
“I am happy you wore the gloves I had given to you. Thanks for valuing it,” said Angela and bite her barbecue. “Yes, I like it, and it is useful to me when I drive. My mother always asked me to buy something in the town, so I always wore your gloves,” Jan Lee answered. “That is nice. You know what, it has been a long time that I did this again. Thanks to you,” Angela turn her eyes to Jan Lee. “Thanks for what?” he asked and looked at her. “Thanks for letting me here. Sometimes, it is very lonely in the house. If without you, I would not be here. This drink is so cold and refreshing,” then she put the can beside her and bite her barbecue. “Yeah, no problem. Do not worry about it, as long as I can. I am here in your side always.” Jan Lee responded and blinked at her. “But hey! This place is getting crisp in here. Did you feel it?” “Yeah, I feel it. It is getting more exciting, right?” Angela bites her lips. “Yeah! Really, but hey
Jan Lee took Angela to her house. When he is about to leave, Angela holds his left arm. “Thanks for the jacket and the ride… I will never forget this moment… I will never forget that place...Hmm, you are the most unique person I had ever meet in my life…I hope you will never change,” said Angela and smiled at him. “You're welcome, you can call me anytime,” Jan Lee answered. “So! I got to go.” “Yeah! Please, be careful. Goodbye,” tell Angela and waved her hand at him. When Angela entered her room, her mother is there hugging Cathy on her bed. “Oh no! Sorry, Cathy. I was visiting the mother of Bernie. We are from the hospital. That is why I came home late,” then she walked forward to her cat, embraced her, and stroked its long orange hair. “Hmm, it seems Cathy had a rival right now,” her mother said, meaning something to Angela. “Cathy, I have to leave you now your mother is here,” she said and grinned at her and leave the room.
"What happened sis?" Tessa asked Ally when she notice her sitting in the corner with her face down casted. "I worried about my father. We need to take him to the hospital. Shim found out that he was not taking medicine anymore. He does not even eat. Shim keep asking him but he refuses," Ally answered and sighed. "Why is he doing that?" Tessa inquires while holding her pen and notebook. "I do not know! Maybe he was thinking he is a burdened to us. But we never let him feel like that. I do everything in taking care of him. I was not mad at him. He was hurt when Jap gives trouble to our house. But we already managed it. We let Jap calmed and we explained to him what happened. He did not see my sacrifices. All he was thinking is himself. I do not understand. I worry about Shim. He is now taking care of our father. Even though, he is doing his study but still he manages his time just to give time in caring our father," Ally shook her head and cry.
"I am sorry for what had happened," Jan Lee said to Ally with his arms around her. He strokes her back and faced her."I never thought he would do this to me. He should be here. But look what he did? he even preferred to go with that woman. I was thinking of him when I needed his presence but he does not care about me. He is lying," Ally rested her head to Jan Lee while sobbing.Jan Lee felt hurt with what his twin brother did to Ally. He wanted to answer Ally's questions and reasoned out for Jim Han's sake. But he chooses to listen to her instead and let her go of her feelings. Then he holds Ally's hand and let her seat beside him in the bench. Ally continues sobbing with her face down ward. She cannot stop but let her tears flowed down her face. Jan Lee turns his face the other way and shook his head."Brother, what have you done?" he thought to himself. "You should be here instead of me. You let me clean up your mess, bro. You are too selfish," he conti
