Love is undefined, unbound by rules. It is something that no person could actually give meaning to until he finds that one human being who gives him the exact definition of it. But is love enough to keep two people together? Or is it just another ideology that somehow got wired into everyone's brain? Or maybe people who are in love are simply blind enough to see the reality and would rather continue living in that paradise dream?View More
"Smile for the camera". My mother said as she made a dash to find her place beside dad on the front. I felt Kelsea's nudge before the camera clicked and captured what supposed to be our new family photo for Christmas. It was the third Christmas picture that she had to nudge me supposing that was my cue to smile. As per usual, I didn't and as soon as the madness was over, I took my seat at the table and mooned over my plate of pasta. I know that it tasted wonderful as the rest of the food on the table. But I could hardly appreciate anything. I actually hadn't appreciated anything at all. I was literally a walking dead. I also felt that everyone around me wanted to say something but instead they seemed to respect my silence and ignored me for the rest of the meal. While all of them went for the gifts after eating, I decided to pick up the trash. I tugged on my sweater as the cold wind hit me while I dumped the heavy black bag inside the bin. I let out a sigh and slowly trailed m
MATTI felt sorry for her.The pain was slowly killing her from the inside and though Kyle had made that choice to save her, it was almost the same as if he had killed her instead.I can’t just not do anything.Katherine didn’t deserve to suffer.She was too good for that.But seeing her confused and not knowing what was going on made me regret interfering with her present.Did I make the right choice?I took a deep breath and sighed as I watched her from afar.It breaks my stone-cold heart to see her get killed little by little day
KATE I felt like the entire universe had fallen on me. My body was weak and it was difficult for me to open my eyes. Tons of bricks were like shoved inside my head, it was throbbing. I managed to open my eyes and found that I was lying in bed. I was back at Aunt Hilda’s and the events from last night was taking their toll on me. Groaning, I got myself up and squinted at the brightness of the room coming from the sunlight outside. Did I run a marathon last night? Why do I feel so tired all of a sudden? Well, I still have no idea what I was doing back at Aunt Hilda’s. I was supposed to be at a camp with my friends.
KATE ‘I will help you remember’. What that mysterious stranger has said seemed to bother me although I have no idea what he meant. Remember what exactly? Did he know something about me that I didn’t? The fire crackled and it danced in my line of vision. Some of the people in our circle had started to hum as one of our group strummed the guitar. They were playing a familiar song. However, my mind was elsewhere. It was bothering me that the mysterious stranger seemed familiar. All too familiar to be exact.
KATE“Whoa,” Shane exclaimed upon getting off the bus.“Right, whoa is the right word,” Anne claimed, placing an arm around Shane’s shoulder, pulling her as she took her phone out from her pants pocket.I was about to tiptoe away knowing that Anne would be taking a picture right after.However, before I could even make my escape, Claude grabbed me by the arm and positioned beside Anne, the latter had already extended her hand, her phone’s camera was already open.“In one, two, three, say cheese,”I forced myself to smile along with the three of them.“Oh my, we look so pretty,&rdquo
KATE“Merry Christmas!” everyone around me loudly and cheerfully screamed. I forced myself to join and even smiled. I had no idea who most of the guests were. All I knew was that they were relatives.Aunt Hilda was busily addressing everyone. So, I had a good excuse to be out of her sight upon taking a plate full of food, opting to stay hidden inside my room.Once I was at the safety of my private space, I let out a sigh of relief. Both Allen and Aunt Hilda would most likely not notice that I was missing. They were both preoccupied and at the moment, I was having a hard time trying to keep up with people trying to talk to me.I was no fan of large crowds, family or no, friends or otherwise. It was the reason why my circle of friends was small. I easily get at
KATEIt was already snowing. Back in California, it was already freezing cold. I stared at the photo my sister just sent together with an ‘I miss and love you’ message. I let out a sigh just as the final bell rang, indicating the end of our last subject for today.“Enjoy your holidays, everyone!” Mister Roy Filadel, our arts teacher said, bading all of us a goodbye as he walked out of the room. Once he was gone, everyone erupted into cheers.Finally, class was over for a few days and the holiday break has begun.“Oooohhh, is that your sister?” Claude said, appearing behind me. I nod, letting her see the picture more closely.“Lucky you, you were able to experience snow first hand,&rdq
KATEI found myself absently staring at the faucet positioned by my feet as I lay in the empty bathtub. The emptiness I was feeling was gnawing at me.
PART 4Broken love, broken hearts. The once sweet feeling was now replaced by bitterness and sad memories.Was the love you have always treasured worth keeping?Or is it time to find a new love?* * *KATEI raised a hand above my head, shielding my face from the harsh glare of the sun. I closed my left eye, playing and teasing my vision. Little rays of sunlight peeked through the slit I was creating with my fingers.“Kate!” For a minute, I was tempted to ignore the person calling my name. But then, my stomach betrayed me. It has been a while since I last ate. I was starving.Flashing a practiced smile, I dropped my hand and propped myself up from lying down on the bleachers of the football field of our school.I turned my attention towards the three approaching figures towards me, Annie, Claude, and Shane.From afar, I could visibly see Annie’s face scrunched in what I know was her way of telling me that I was guilty of something.The afternoon sun was high-up. I checked my watch. I o
