I stared at him unbelievably. I can't figure out if he's telling the truth or not. I tried to read him but his face was just so blank. How could a stranger know me? Hello? We just met!
"Are you kidding me?" I said as I raised my brow and cross my arms at the front of my chest.
"No," he replied.
This man testing my patience!
"Then how? How do you know me? It's impossible that we already met before because I don't remember anything." I said when I realize something. I gaze at him in disbelief. "Are you my stalker or something?"
"No.." then he shook his head again.
I felt embarrassed at the moment. However, I still don't believe him. He is also weird and strange! Did he just let me stay here so he could just stare at me all day? This man is giving me a cringe. He didn't even bother to tell me his name!
Ynnah "So, what would be our topic?" I asked while crossing my both arms and legs with my prepared notepad and pen that were placed above the table. We are here in the school canteen discussing about what will be our topic in the case study that we will both do. "I like cases about murders and any other crime issues, but that wasn't educational enough so we should think of other recent issues or topics that related to our rights. How about, human rights crisis in the Philippines? Was that fine with you?" he said while scanning his phone. This man was very strange! Does he really like those cases of murders? Goodness! Even a bleeding wound, I am still frightened to look at. "That's fine with me." I said as I jotted down on my notepad about the ideas he had said. "Do you have any social media account? I'll just add you so I can send to you the case link, later." "No, I
Ynnah "Francine!" I get up immediately when someone squealed and shook me by the arm. The moment I opened my eyes, my older brother's face is what I saw forthwith. Fear is written in his eyes. I get my ass up soon as I roamed my eyes around my whole room in so much fear. Dream. "Hey, are you okay?" I shifted my gaze to my older brother who was now sitting next to me while busy stroking my back. "Brother!" I threw myself at him immediately as I cried out of fear. As I hugged my brother, I couldn’t help but look around. I roamed my eyes around my room once again and then my gaze shifted to the glass door. No shadows, no Eros. No one was around except me and my brother. Thank goodness it was all just a dream! "It's okay, princess. Hush now, it's alright," he said soothing me while still caressing my back.
Ynnah "Eros, where do you really intend to take me?" I don't know how many times I have repeated that line since we left the university. And in those few times, I knew he was also annoyed by my unending questions. It's been an hour since we traveled and I still have no idea where he will take me. I took a glimpse of him when he didn't even bother to answer my question. He just stared at the road while his face is dull and no emotions at all. Well, what's new anyway? When I made sure he had no intention of answering my qualm, I just irritatedly leaned against the backrest of the passenger seat while my two arms were wrapped around my chest with my lips protruded when the nightmare from last night popped out on my mind out of a sudden. Is it real? I asked myself and gazed at Eros who was still focused on the road. My dream is so terrible which seems
Ynnah I got up up so early in the morning so I preferred to went to school early than before. Our instructor isn't there yet as there's still thirty minutes before our first period so, I decided to checked our case study on my laptop first and reviewed it, because there might be typos and grammatical errors ahead so, it's better to be certain. And maybe because there are missing and excessive explanations and evidences so it's better to be sure so that we won't have difficulty in explaining later. "Ynnah, are you done with your case study?" asked one of my classmates who had just arrived which I nod in response. "Yep, I just reviewed it. Why?" I asked as my eyes still fixed at my laptops monitor. "When you are done reviewing your case study, can you take it to the Deans office afterwards? Ms. Arado ordered that, and she's also asking your presence," he said and handed me three thick books.
Ynnah Shit! What should I do? Fuck! Why now? "Hey, are you okay in there? It's almost 20 mins," who else is knocking? It's none other than Eros. He was the only person I am with from earlier in the hospital until now here in the public comfort room of a park we passed by while we are walking to go home. And guess what? Is it because I am so unlucky that every time I am with him, my period comes at the wrong time? Gosh! That's why my stomach hurts, feeling like I'm painful cramps because, it's actually the third week of the month. Ugh, why am I so unlucky today? What am I going to do now? I'm sure I will going to have a red stain and get embarrass to other people if I just ignore it. I should have ordered Eros to buy a - something you know? A girls thing? Oh my goodness! That man will definitely st
Ynnah "Remember to read the pages 123-143. We will discuss all the topics under that scope next meeting." Our professor said. "That's all for today. Class dismissed." I heavily sigh as I eyed our book's table of contents for a few seconds. Our professor's asking us to read almost around hundred pages that will be our topic next meeting. I don't know how he will maximize our time to teach four topics in three hours, if even now that he only teaches two topics it will take three hours, how much more if he will teach four topics in that short period of time? I was pulled away from my thoughts when someone pasted a sticky note at the top of my book. 'Eat lunch with me.' I read on what was written there. I averted my gaze at the man standing at the front of my desk as I took a deep breath. I am not surprised anymore that it was Eros, but I felt somethi
Ynnah "Are you okay?" my older brother asked when I calmed down. "I already asked Manang to burn those box with the dead cat. Don't worry, from now on I will watch over you. I will never allow this to happen again." I smiled at him as I felt how worried he is about me but he didn't have to do this thing. I don't want to bother him anymore because I know he is also busy with school and modeling. I don't want to bother my brother just because of what happened earlier. "Francis, you don't have to worry like this. I'm okay, so don't bother watching me. Also, I'm already a big girl. I can handle myself alone." I said as I gave him my assuring smile but he just gave me a dull gaze which means, he is not agreeing on what I just said. "I am your brother, Francine," he sternly said. "Yes I know but, I just don't want to bother you anymore. I know that you're a busy person." "You don't bother me
Ynnah Days had passed since I received the death note and paperbag containing the box with the dead cat. And a few days later I was already able to go and enter that palatial mansion of Eros. And right until now, I am still wondering about how it happened that he was the only one living in that oversized house? Are his parents dead? If not, where are they? Abroad? On vacation? Business meetings? I want to ask him about those things but I don't think I'm in the position to interfere in anyone's life. But what amazes me more, with the sheer size and cost of their belongings in the mansion is that neither a guard nor an assistant doesn't have it. And the painting, why do I feel there is a deep meaning behind that painting. And what bothers my brain even more are Calisse and Xander. What do they have to do with the mysteries that happening in my life
