Language used: ENGLISH • • • • Don't Let Go Trilogy #1 • • • • When I was just 5 years old, I used to love grandma's stories. Like, having an arranged marriage and being in love. It was magical but now that I really think about it, it's a bit silly. Why? It's simple. Less freedom. Girlfriends. Boyfriends. Sleep-overs. Parties. Journeys. You can't possibly do all of those things when your hands are tied. Besides, what if you don't love that person? And that you'll never, ever, learn to love that person? Can't you choose the person that your heart wants instead? Seriously, love is complicated. • • • • • Kira Castelle is an amiable, easy-to-talk-to, and a laid-back 17 year old lady that has sworn to put love aside and continue reaching for her dreams. Not until a perfect storm happened. When females turn 18 and males turn 21, they are assigned a marriage partner by the government. With this, they just have to wait for the country to find their compatible partner and become happy. When Kira Castelle finally turned 18, she has to meet her partner. Neal Valastro. A drop-dead gorgeous man of stone. He's the epitome of perfection and Kira's polar opposite. The problem is, will this work out just fine for Kira? Will she ever be Ready? or Not? • • • • •View More
Ferris Wheel• • • • •I looked around and saw a lot of rides, food stalls, and game stalls. There are also a lot of people.I shifted on my seat and wrinkled my forehead. It was like I've squished something that's overloaded with so many weird things.How bothersome even though I've changed not too long ago.Neal arrived with a lot of food with him like tempura and kwek kwek on a plate, lemonade juice, and other foods that have been put on a container.Slowly, I stood up and excused myself, bringing the bag with me, and went to do my thing.We happily ate and stayed there for a minute to talk about the fun things we'll do first."What do you want to ride, first?""You." I shrugged at him. Well isn't it a wise choice to let him since it is still my first time here?"Wait, what?" He
Fair• • • • •"I will pick the song since you picked the challenge."How is she so confident with all the people looking at us?"Okay." I breathed heavily. Damn, I really hope it's not that hard especially when it is still my second day today.We were now in front of the big screen while Neal was leaning on the railing that was not that far away from me.Omg. I wouldn't have noticed until now that more and more people are gathering around us if it weren't for me peeking at Neal. This is making me so goddamn nervous.Yes, I did join a dance squad before but that was all just for fun. I never danced in front of a lot of people nor do something in front of a stage. It's too embarrassing.I looked at Neal again and he was already staring at me. He gave me two thumbs up and smiled, making me feel relaxed.My gaze went back to the screen again when it showed a song which is 'Sorry not Sor
Just Dance• • • • •I silently observed both of them. The tarsier's boyfie was very nervous and shaking while Neal was very calm and cool for me but I bet that others would see him as cold and evil for having an intimidating aura around him.Even his opponent seems frightened.I covered my ears. People started to cheer loudly for Neal when his opponent has started to miss a lot and lost the match while he continued, reaching for a very high score of 550.Wow. I bet this is his first time playing basketball again since graduating high school or college and yet, he is still this amazing. He barely missed a shot as he fires them at the net with a breakneck pace.I grinned widely and approached Neal, giving him a thumbs up. He smiled at me and kneeled down, picking up the tickets that were endlessly pouring out of the machine.I peeked at
The Basketball Match• • • • •"Match?" I looked at the woman in surprise. Why is she challenging me suddenly for that? And, what match?"Basketball. I want your boyfriend and my boyfriend to have a competition right here and right now. Let's see who of our boyfriend will win." She proudly said while puffing up her chest.With that being said, she grabbed her boyfriend by the arm and kissed him in front of everyone, telling him things that are...well, things that are inappropriate. It's probably her way to cheer for him."You will do your best, right babe? Show them that you are the best of the best. That no one in this world can defeat you! Didn't you tell me before that you were better than your classmate? Who was it again? Was it Neil?" The man gulped several times while peeking nervously on my back.'Oh?' I raised my eyebrow at his actions suspiciously. Was the
Get Ready to Lose, Oldie!• • • • •There are straight, zigzag, E, C, and other routes but nah, who cares about those when there is a pretty awesome route right where I'm staring at?Ten tenenenen!The zigzag route!Wouldn't it be more challenging and fun? And besides, I don't really have to worry because I chose automatic! All I have to do is sit and steer!"Get ready to lose, oldie!" I laughed at him naughtily.He sneered. "Right back at you."I gripped on the steering wheel tightly while the race begins its countdown. When the screen displayed the 'go' sign, I quickly steered the wheel but nothing happened.Huh? What's wrong?Neal has started his while mine didn't. Oh no! What should I do!? I frowned and poked Neal's side. He stopped and looked at me confusingly, "Is t
Let's Play!• • • • •Crap."What's wrong?" Asked Neal when he noticed how restless I was, looking back at the taxi that Bia was in when it turned our way, following us.Oh shit. Did she notice me?"Kira?""A-ah, yes. I'm good.""You don't look like it.""Uhm...m-my tummy is grumbling already. I guess I'm hungry? Uh, can we go a little bit faster?" I bit my lower lip and tried to act as normal as possible. I am really bad at lying so it would be a problem if I keep opening my mouth.Let's take a deep breath and avoid questions for now.I was about to peek at Neal for being silent but sighed in relief when he went faster without asking questions. I gulped and relaxed when the taxi was falling behind.Ugh, that damned Bia! Today is a very special day and she's going to ruin it. Sigh, I just hope that she would give up and stop following us anymore.
Date 2• • • • •"Hey, sleepyhead. Wake up."I grunted irritably and slapped the hand away that was poking my cheek.Ugh. My face turned sour as I felt the heat of the sun touch my skin. Why is he waking me up? How annoying. He is putting me in a bad mood first thing in the morning and I don't like it. What I really hate the most is when someone would wake me up from my sleep.I want to wake up whenever I want to and not when anyone wants me to.He poked my cheek again so I decided to hold and clutch it, preventing it from prodding my cheek again. He laughed at my naughty behavior that caused me to frown at him.I thought that he was in a bad mood since yesterday? Well, because after making fun of him, he left me in the living room and went up the room. I saw him again in the afternoon, carrying some sheets with him. He ignored me so I i
Date• • • • •He's making me more helpless and I really should do something right away. If he thinks that he gets what he wants that easily, then he is wrong. He may be dominating me right now but it won't last for long. I'll be turning the tables and show him how it's professionally done.Something that would leave him wanting for more.Wow, Kira. Coming from someone as innocent and as inexperienced as you. Duh, I'll trust myself on this.I smiled at him seductively as I moved closer to him, kneeling on one knee and with a sweet tone, I whispered in his ear,"You're not doing it right, darling. How weak."I moved away from him to see how he would react and laughed at the view. He looked at me with wide eyes, couldn't believe with what I just said and did but reverted to his calm demeanor and sm
Childish• • • • •He sat down beside me and held my chin to face him. "I knew I was right. You should have just told me the truth, Kira. You don't want me to be in a bad mood, right, darling?" He grinned at me.This man."So that means that it's okay with you whether I am in a bad mood, too? Tsk, you don't know how mad I am today. Especially at you." I said with gritted teeth as I move away from him, crossing my arms over my chest. He'll probably think that I'm joking. Hah! We'll see.Well, what I said was still a bit true since he didn't arrive sooner when Bia was still here. I wouldn't be this mad and anxious if he didn't leave."Why's my darling mad at me?" He moved closer and wrapped his arms around my waist. I tried to move away again but he's not letting me so I let him be and pouted."Hmmph. How would I know? Why don't you talk to yourself? Maybe by doing i
