Even though it was very heavy, I tried to open my eyes slowly. I felt a sharp pain in the back of my head. My feet also hurt a lot. I saw the white walls of the room around me.Kenan's face is the first thing I see right now, followed by the panicked faces of my father and... Steve?What is this?"Which part hurts?" asked Kenan, panicking."All," I said with difficulty."Do you remember the license plate?" asked Steve.Car license plate? Ah, I remember. A car was speeding towards me. I tried to avoid it, but not that fast to survive. It happened so fast; how could I possibly remember the license plate?"I don't remember the license plate, but I saw a unique picture on the car," I said quietly."What picture is it?" shouted Kenan and Steve together."Draw a black rose," I said weakly.Dad pulled the guys away from me and gave them a hard look."Let Kei rest first, okay?" cried Dad emphatically.Kenan and Steve were silent and sat quietly in the waiting room."Are you okay, honey? Which
I stared at the Aster Gang as they passed my class. There was nothing suspicious about their movements.I don't want to be prejudiced; it's just that, apart from them, who else would want to harm me?"Kei," Tiana called while giving me banana milk."You like this, right? Sorry for not being able to visit you," Tiana said quietly."That's ok!" I said it modestly.Well, I don't care whether she visits me or not; as I told her before, I don't consider her a close friend anymore, so who cares what she does?The class suddenly fell silent when someone appeared at the entrance.Steve waved his hand at me; he then walked unsteadily toward me.Tiana, who was standing beside my desk, immediately shifted away from me."Nice to see you here! Last night, I went to your house, but your dad wouldn't let me in because you were already asleep!" Steve exclaimed as he sat beside me.I remember someone ringing the doorbell last night. When I asked Dad, he said that the salesperson who came was offering
I had just opened my eyes when there was a knock on my bedroom door. When I looked at the clock on the wall in the corner of the room, I was surprised to find that it was late at night.I jumped off the bed and opened the door.Tiana and Via stood in front of my bedroom door and panicked."What?" I looked at the two of them in turn."Clarisa..." Tiana gripped my sleeve tightly.Clarissa? What else now?"She hasn't come home for several days; you know that she can never sleep anywhere other than her room, right?" Tiana spoke quickly."If she disappears, shouldn't you or her family report it to the police? Why did you come to my house instead?" I looked at them, annoyed."She went missing after delivering Lenny's assignment," interrupted Via."Then you should ask Lenny! Why are you even here?" I said it quickly."No one dares talk to Lenny but you, Kei!" Tiana exclaimed, frustrated."So?"Tiana and Via looked at each other; they then knelt in front of me. They begged, even whined, for m
I cover my head with the pillow; at least they're all asleep, even if it's only a few hours, while I?I haven't been able to close my eyes until now; don't they pity me? Why is it so noisy?I threw down my pillow and straightened my body. The three girls who had controlled my room were still sobbing and sharing sad stories when Clarisa was kidnapped.It's not that I'm not sad or unable to sympathize with the problem; it's just that I'm really sleepy right now."Hey, you can continue this drama at Tiana's or Via's house! Look at my eye bags! I really need enough rest now!" I exclaimed, annoyed.The three girls looked at me; they then cleaned my bed and immediately took Clarisa away from my room.Look at that! They didn't even thank me.And they call us friends? Are they kidding?After they left, I immediately closed my bedroom door and locked it.To hell with school, I have to close my eyes now.***When I woke up from my sleep, I winced in confusion to see a place that was clearly not
I dropped the paper bag I was carrying when I saw who was in front of me.Marko? Why is he so different?Lizbeth screamed for me; the girl then ran over to me and jumped into my arms."William is here! The three of us can play!" Lizbeth exclaimed happily.I put Lizbeth down and walked slowly to meet Marko. To be honest, I almost couldn't believe my eyes. Marko, who usually looks like a bad boy, is now dressed neatly like a good boy.This is very strange."Lizbeth, please help the others prepare food," Marko asked Lizbeth.The little girl nodded cheerfully, said goodbye to me, and then walked quickly into the orphanage."What are you doing here?" Marko snapped."I brought some vitamins." I lifted the paper bag I brought, showing it to Marko."Don't take too long; get out of here quickly!" exclaimed Marko quietly.I shook my head weakly. I usually come at this time and come home at night. Why is Marko controlling me now?"I'll be back when it's time to go home!" After saying that, I got
That afternoon, I got ready to go to the park. Kenan and I had promised to meet at the park in the city center."You're leaving, honey?" asked Dad while noticing my beautiful appearance."Yeah. I have a promise with Kenan, Dad," I answered."Kenan? Why don't you hang out with Steve?" Dad asked."Come on!"I rushed to go. After walking a little towards the main road, I stopped a taxi that happened to pass by."I finally arrived," I said.I sat on a park bench, thinking about a birthday present for Daddy. Since my mom died, I only have Daddy; he is everything to me."Kei!"I turned toward the source of the sound. It turned out that Kenan was already standing there, waving his hand at me. I was so happy to see him while I waved back his hand. Recently, my relationship with Kenan has gotten closer. Yeah, although he still likes to hide things.Kenan seemed to sit beside me, smiling. "Sorry, a little late. I had to queue a little while buying gas.""It's okay. I can understand. Besides, yo
The next day, exactly at noon after school, I decided to meet Kenan at his school. Even though we went to different schools, the distance between our schools was not too far."Kenan must be pleased with the appearance. This morning, I made quite a few sandwiches. Kenan likes sandwiches. " I'm looking at the plastic container where there were several sandwiches in it.With enough fast steps, I can soon arrive at a shop across from Kenan's school. I can't wait to see him.When I was about to step toward Kenan's school, I was stunned by the footsteps but I was able to continue. At this time, I saw Kenan standing near the school gate and getting ready to accompany a girl on his motorcycle.The girl wore the same uniform as Kenan. That means they are in the same school. It's only natural that they could get that close.Who is that girl? Why does Kenan seem so familiar with that girl? I'm starting to think too far ahead. I cannot imagine what is in my mind coming true. I've always liked Ken
I gaped in disbelief at what had happened to our living room.OK, I know it's my birthday, but balloons and a big cake? Did he forget that I no longer celebrated birthdays many years ago?"What is this?" I asked Dad, who was busy preparing some dishes for the table."I have to attend an important meeting out of town; I'm sorry for not being able to celebrate your birthday. I prepared this so you can celebrate it with your friends," Dad said as he came closer to me.Dad smiled broadly before finally hugging me tightly."I have missed a lot, not realizing that you are already a very beautiful girl! If your mom were alive, she would be very jealous because you are much prettier than her!" Dad looked at me with a gentle gaze.I can't hide my smile. I'm pleased to hear it. I know my mom is very pretty, so it's nice to hear Dad compliment me like that.But the thing is if I have a friend I can invite,Dad took a card out of his wallet and gave it to me."Gift," Dad said with a warm smile."
