"Dammit! I said stop! “He grabbed my arm, grinding me to a sudden halt. When I turned around, his lips were pulled into a thin line stretching all the way to the edges. The playfulness was gone from his eyes, aggravation slipping in its place. "Why should I stop Tan? So you can try to get me into your bed like those girls you sleep with every day?" I questioned, pulling my bare arms around myself to shield myself from the cold chills. "Because I don't want you here Holly. I want you gone, far away from RCU. I don’t want to see your face or be anywhere near you," he blatantly pointed out, no hint of remorse in his voice. "Excuse me?" Was he being serious right now?View More
Chapter 6"Holly stop," Tan shouted behind me but I walked on, furiously blinking the tears trying to find their way out of my eyes. He didn’t deserve and a drop of them. Bastard."Dammit! I said stop! “He grabbed my arm, grinding me to a sudden halt.When I turned around, his lips were pulled into a thin line stretching all the way to the edges. The playfulness was gone from his eyes, aggravation slipping in its place. So what could possibly be the reason he had that look on his face when I was the one who got hurt by him? He couldn’t even pretend he was sorry for a damn second."Why should I stop Tan? So you can try to get me into your bed like those girls you sleep with every day?" I questioned, pulling my exposed arms around myself to shield myself from the cold chills."Because I don't want you here Holly. I want you gone, far away from RCU. I don’t want to see your face or be anywhere near you," he blatantly pointed out, no hint of remorse in his voice."Excuse me?" Was he being
CHAPTER FIVEThe wind pushed my hair back as I struggled not to grind my jaw. I was not sure if it was from the chills of the unforgivingly cold night or the chills from knowing Tan was sitting by the bar, the space between us filled by a few drunk couples grinding to the loud hip-hop music."It's okay if you don't want to do this today," I felt Alex's hand grab my arm.She was absolutely right but I had already postponed this once. I could have confronted him yesterday after calling Joon but I had cowered away like a little scared rat. The thought of seeing had been outrightly overwhelming then, freezing my insides with no mercy whatsoever. Today it had taken me every ounce of willpower to show up here and I was not about to let myself chicken out again."I'm fine. Besides we are just going to talk and hopefully I'll never have to speak to him or feel on edge when he is around," I smiled just to keep her off the fact that I was beyond being nervous. Every fiber in my body was screami
CHAPTER FOURIt has been three days since my encounter with Tan and honestly I was pretty much nervous every time I stepped in class. He never once met my gaze or batted an eyelid towards me. It should not have bothered me but the fact that even Joon had stop paying attention to me was nagging a bit. Should I just have talked to him when he showed up at my room?"Derek has been staring at you the entire class and he is kind of cute," she added wiggling her eyebrows rather mischievously."Who is Derek again?" I probed pushing my books into my back along with my laptop. The lecturer had just walked out and right now all I could think of was some spicy steak."The blonde sitting just in front of Tan," She whispered.Tan. I hated how that very name could easily make me freeze in place. It affected me in ways that nothing else could. I risked a glance at the said boy but almost regretted it when my gaze connected with Tan's instead. His eyes pierced right through me, sending a series of ti
CHAPTER THREEJoon was friends with Tan? If they were friends where had they been for the past one week since I reported and why didn’t Sarah ever mention a thing about this to me? I needed to avoid Joon if I really wanted a drama free school year. The Tan I used to be friends with was somebody different to the Tan here. Four years ago it was impossible to imagine Tan using any type of cuss word when talking to somebody older than him and yet he did boldly talked to the lecturer like that today. I was disrupted from my train of thinking by the shrill ringing of my phone. I picked it up without checking the caller ID because I assumed it was my mother.“Hello,”“Hey Holly. Its Joon,” My attention was suddenly sparked.“H-How did you get my number?” The stuttering had not been intentional.“My sister,”“Of course,” Very predictable.“You seemed to be in a hurry when you left class this morning,” He said in an easy tone.“Yeah. I had an emergency that I had to take care of immediately,”
CHAPTER TWO“You left in hurry yesterday,” Alex commented as we hurried to class the following morning. We had to arrive early enough so we could get the front seats. The fifty something old lecturer was not loud so unless you were close enough to her, you’d end up with nothing for the entire semester. I had to graduate with an Honors and not just because my parents were strict about my grades but because I wanted that. It was the one thing that could get me giddy with excitement.“I was just feeling tired,” I said, shrugging.“That’s a bummer. You missed the most epic moment of the fight,” Her voice dropped down as we entered the class. A few students were present so we managed to acquire the two front seats.“I wasn’t even enjoying it,” I admitted pulling out my notebook from my brown leather duffel bag.“I never enjoyed any of it either,”“But you were screaming pretty loud yesterday,” I could have sworn her voice had been at its highest peak.“Well, a girl has gotta do what she go
Holly's POVPunch. Blood. Another punch. More blood. I fidgeted nervously, trying to subdue the imminent urge to throw up. The sight of blood was playing around with the food I had eaten earlier and yet I kept on looking just like the rest of the students and outsiders, my face scrunched up in disgust. This was definitely nothing close to fun. This was just another harsh way of inducing nightmares.“Are you having fun?” Alex, my roommate and personal bodyguard, shouted above the ongoing roar, tagging at my arm, a look of pure glee on her porcelain face. Why did I let her talk me into this? I could have been cuddled up in my bed covers crying over some sad movie right now.“If seeing people punching each other to each other to death is the definition of having fun, then I’m totally having fun,” I shouted back.“See? I knew you’d like it,” It was either my touch of sarcasm was lost on her or she was trying not to let me ruin the night for her. Either way, she was just being Alex.My bro
