Vano slept curled up on the sofa while Kenan played games on the bed. Violet cleared her throat, making Kenan and Vano open their eyes wide.“Kei?" Kenan shouted as he approached me. He pulled the IV tube closer to me who was still standing in the doorway.“Your face is very pale, are you okay?” I asked slowly.Kenan smiled faintly, then nodded slowly. Violet helped me to sit on the sofa. She then woke up the sleeping Vano and invited him to go to give me space to talk to Kenan.Kenan sat beside me, looked at me from head to toe, and breathed a sigh of relief."It's not your fault, so don't blame yourself," I said matter-of-factly.Kenan immediately averted his eyes, not daring to meet my eyes. He looked nervous. Kenan, who is always full of confidence, suddenly gets nervous when he's with me. That's how much guilt he has.I took Kenan's hand, and then held it gently, making him immediately turn and look at me deeply."This is not your fault. It's just a road I have to walk, we pass.
I'm still here, I'm still with you, when dusk greets me, I feel your presence. You are a source of warmth, comfort, happiness. Why don't you take me with you? You went and left all these memories with me.It's too fast, I'm not ready, I'm not willing to let you go.What shall I do without you, Adipati?What should I do?"Kei..."Violet's gentle voice greeted my eardrums. The girl came to me and sat beside me. I don't want to see her, the whiny me will cry again if I look at my best friend's face.Violet just accompanied me in silence in front of Adipati's grave."It's almost evening, don't you want to go home?" Violet asked quietly.I looked up at the sky which was starting to get dark, the cold wind continued to blow at us."Can't I just stay here? Adipati will be lonely here," I answered quietly."No, he will be angry and sad if he finds out you spent time in a dark and scary place like this," said Violet.Correct. If he saw me, he would definitely be furious.“Your dad and Selena a
"Mafia members who are related to the Marko family," Kenan said slowly.I stared into Kenan's eyes sharply. He said it so confidently.“They did it? So, Marko's family is behind this murder? Why does it have to be Adipati? Why don't they just target me? I mean, Marko is in prison because of me, not because of Adipati. Why are they doing this?”Kenan just shook his head weakly in response to my words."I will investigate, I will bring the culprit before you," Kenan said while stroking my cheek gently."You promise?" I insisted.Kenan nodded slowly without the slightest hesitation.“I doubt if they killed him to get revenge for Marko's capture. I'm sure there are other things that make them target Adipati,” Kenan said slowly.I shook my head slowly. I don't remember if Adipati ever had anything to do with them.“Is there anything I can help you with? How are you going to investigate this?” I urged Kenan.The man just shook his head slowly, he looked at me deeply."Calm down, we have to
"Wisnu?" I shouted, surprised to see who was coming towards us.I turned to Kenan who also looked confused.Wisnu sat down and drank the coffee that we previously ordered for the informant who contacted Kenan."You shopped for necessities for your sister?" Wisnu asked with a smile.I nod quickly."She's seven months pregnant so we bought some things," I said even though I was still confused."Someone keeps following me, so it's safer to meet in a public place like this, as if meeting a friend and having a casual chat," said Wisnu casually.I nodded slowly.“Why don't you message me with your own number? Or if you are being followed, you can say it in a message," Kenan said.Wisnu smiled so widely."I don't know, I'm afraid if my number is tapped or something, it's just my worry. Technology is so scary these days.” Wisnu said, trying to look relaxed.I nod quickly. I don't care what the reason is. I only need the information that Wisnu will convey.“Recently on campus, drugs are spread
Violet and I immediately stood up and looked around when the group of police entered the campus area. Some of them entered the Chancellor's room, and some immediately spread out and arrested several people."What happened?" Violet screamed while hiding behind my back."They came to arrest drug users and dealers," said Vano, who had just come to us with Kenan."Does this have anything to do with Adipati's case?" I asked while looking closely at Kenan.The man just nodded slowly. I breathed a sigh of relief hearing that."Unfortunately, the perpetrator of the murder is still at large, the police are hunting him in Bali, because they fled there." Kenan looked at me with a sad look.I smiled in response to his words.“Sooner or later they will be found. I am sure of it. After all, the drug suspects had been caught, Adipati's struggle was not in vain. Now just wait for them to be found!” I said casually.Kenan smiled faintly, then nodded slowly. Kenan's cell phone rang, the man immediately
The heat of the city of Jakarta immediately greeted me as soon as I left the airport. I waved at one of the taxis, and immediately got into the taxi while the driver put my luggage in the trunk.It's been more than five months since I left Jakarta to volunteer in one of the remote towns in Kalimantan. A month after the birth of the twins, a very big disaster occurred in Kalimantan. I decided to join an organization from my campus to volunteer there. Because the conditions were so bad, I decided to stay there longer than the other volunteers.I asked the driver to take me to a cafe that I used to frequent with Violet.After arriving there, I sent a message to Violet to meet me at that place.“Kei!” Violet shouted from the entrance, making all the customers there immediately turn to look at the girl. It seems like she's still as noisy as before.Violet ran to hug me tightly.“Oh My God! Are you wearing make-up?" shrieked the girl in disbelief.Oh, yes! While I was in Kalimantan, I liked
I ran as fast as I could. Almost Mr. Abdul--the school guard, closed the gate.After staying up late to do the Aster Gang's errands, I was finally able to sleep a few hours. I'm really lucky, usually, I can only sleep an hour before going to school.The reason why I was always ranked number one in school, was not because I was born smart, but because I had to study harder to be able to do the homework for members of the Aster Gang, who of course had different majors.This is where I am, at Gemilang High School. A beautiful place, but terrible.I stopped running when my name tag fell, a beautiful name written on the name tag made me feel sad.Kei Innaya Susilo, that's my name. It means a Beautiful flower growing on the rock. I should be as strong as the name my parents gave me. But in reality, it's the opposite of what was expected.I am weak. That's why they bother me. The Aster Gang. A group of fierce spoiled girls, and stupid men who always do all the girls' orders.The only thing I
I ran into my room, locking myself inside with the music playing loudly. Ah, no! Very hard precisely because only then I can cry to my heart's content. No one wants to live so miserably like this.I'm not a bad girl, I'm a good girl who never hurt anyone, but why did God put me in this position? Why?I paused and covered my mouth tightly when I heard a knock on the door. I know exactly who is behind that door. Yes, it must be Dad. I thought he was not at home as usual."Kei, have you eaten?" shouted Dad from behind the door.No, I haven't eaten, and it's better not to eat than to show my face covered in dried henna streaks. Dad would be very hurt if he saw his only daughter become a victim of bullying. And of course, I don't want that to happen."I already ate at school!" I shouted."Could you open the door?" asked Dad."No! I don't wanna see anyone! I'm on my period!" I shouted while holding back my tears."Alright, meet Dad whenever you want!" shouted Dad.I put my ear to the door t
