The end of summer marked the end of our friendship.


The end of summer marked the end of our friendship.
Summer began warm and kind... But in the end... Well... Good things end eventually anyway...

"Hey John!"
And good things certainly don't happen to people like me.

"What are you moping around for? Still down about that girl"
"Come play ball with me! Summer flings long over lover boy, time to shape up and hook up!" The man laughed.

"Dummy, I dont play ball."
"Think fast!" The guy passed the ball.

"Ugh! Ha! Wait, NO, I can't be playing this now!" John complained.

The other guy only laughed.
"You used to be good at this stuff remember?" He sighed. "You should live a little."

Honestly speaking... It's all I'm trying to do.

"Dummy, Here, take this, I gotta go."
Living a little... It's all I'm trying to do... Beethoven - Moonlight Sonata

That night, after I dropped Ever of I started playing endlessly. It had been years since I last touched the piano.

When I was a young boy my father payed all sorts of people to teach me arts. One I particularly liked was playing the piano. But after my mentor had died, I stopped completely.
There was a pattern I involuntarily follow. When I take interest in something, I pursue it, but in the middle of it all, I give up or lose all hope. I end up depressed... angry... violent... unpredictable...

"Dear Ever... No... I am... no... NO NO NO!"

My smile is a mask, something I wear to hide my true feelings off.

I had asked this girl to be my friend. But I thought I could hide my true intentions from her. So I kissed her, what's the big deal? Maybe we can move on from that... Maybe she would like me too, heck, maybe we can end up together.
But... That's the worst possible outcome...

I'm sorry... Ever... I love you... But to you, this curse, this hatred, I cannot pass on.
If anyone thought I was sad about John not being my friend anymore, then they'd better think again.

In fact, it was such a relief that I gained new perspective in life. I enrolled back to the university to finish off the course I left unfinished.
"Hey! I'm Chris D'Luca, I guess were roommates."

"I'm Sofia Evergreen, I guess were stuck together then."

Both laughs.

I even made a friend first day of the new semester.
Nothing could change this blissful feeling. Absolutely nothing can flip me over. I was certain of that until... I saw my ex looking all university cleaned up. It struck a nerve how my heart beat fast when our eyes met. I immediately turned away.

"Is it just me or does this university lack 'Mandies'" Chris complained.


"You know, man candies, I've been looking around and haven't found any--oh!" she stopped.
"Mandy 3-oclock" She warned me.

"Chris, I need to ask you a favor, laugh with me."

"Laugh? Why? Oh...."

She immediately understood the situation.

They both laughed in unison.

"OMG, that's so funny."

Have you ever had the feeling of having your heart fall out of you chest? Not because you feel happy or excited... but because you fear something not good is headed your way?

"Can we talk?"

"Okay... This is awkward, I'm going to disappear for now, bye!" Chris says with a pleading look on her face, maybe she got the mental message wrong, I did not want to be alone with this person.
It was awkward... I couldn't even look him in the eye.

"Are you still mad at me?" Matt started. "I know I did all sorts of bad on you, I was a jerk, I'm sorry."
"Can we start over? I miss you... Sofia..."

I had to think for a second, but it was different now.
I closed my eyes, taking a deep breath, but when I closed my eyes... It was no longer him I see...


"You don't need to answer now..." He stopped me laughing a little. "I'll show you... That i can be the man for you..."
It was strange... this feeling... It was something I never had before... Unlike my numerous romantic escapades , this was warm and painful... It was friendship, but maybe it was also something more... But why was it so painful. I walked pass Chris and her headed straight to my room...

"'Mandy'" It seems she found what she was looking for.
"Hello? Yes, Dr. Freud? This is John... About the results? Oh..."

"Yeah, I understand, I'll come pick them up tomorrow."
"Who's that guy?"
"We have a class together, let's invite him."
Chris invited me to this get together at the back yard.

"Yeah, so a bunch of people from the university will be there, not a lot of Mandies though, so it would be cool if you'd like show up to like attract, be a MANDY attraction or something."

"I have to study." I reply.
"We're not her to study, were here to live! Come on!" Chris could be quite persuasive. I was literally pulled all the way down to the backyard.

"Look, so yeah, just chill, I'll go get some punch so don't go no where."
It's not like I had planned to escape or anything, but that one moment, I lost the ability to move. It was as if time froze me in an infinite second, leaving me breathless making everything slow down, defying the science of all things.

Blue eyes, blue shirt, the blue boy.
Eyes watching me, expression unreadable, his name I could not remember.

It took so long, but it was only a second, but I'm sure.

The guy who I saw that night... Was definitely John Riley.
Sorry about the lack of updates, my PC kinda died for a week, but I think it's OK now. Hopefully she wont disappoint me, anywho, I hope you liked this chapter even though it's a bit rushed, almost all my work is rushed do to very limited time when using the PC, but I'm glad people can still make sense of it, haha.

Thanks to all the featured CC for which if they don't exist, I'll be stuck with a colorless world of EA defaults.

Thanks for reading!
