"I actually L..Lo... want you to cut that hair because they really don't suit you," I said, then turning my head, and covering my mouth while pretend to hide a laugh trying to hide my blush. Oh my god Lina, why are you so useless. Why didn't you just confess to him?
And his hair, it not like I hate it but it the other way around, his medium hair keeps flowing in the wind like a prince in my dream and it keeps distracting me. I just can't keep focus when I'm around him. Also, I really want to touch his hair, I keep wondering what it smells like, whether it rough to the touch or smooth like a fur.
I am obsessed with him, ever since two years ago. The more I with him, the more I want to know about him, every time I look at him - Ideas spark in my head and I have the urge to draw him on a piece of paper.
Haru replied with a slight annoy face, his expression is so cute when I tease him about his hair.
I tease him more about on how he was late this morning, then Haru shoos me to go back home. I comply, a tinge of wistful in my heart, as I realized we had to part our ways.
I rush back home on my Motorcycle. The moment I park my Motorcycle in the driveway, I quickly run into the house and rush upstairs to my room.
"Lina dear, what happens?" My mother called out to me from the kitchen, I ignored her and head to my room.
I plunge my body into the bed, a loud metal bending noise can be heard coming from the frame because of the stress it's trying to support my strength. I buried my face in the pillow and scream, but only a muffled scream escaped. I keep on screaming feeling frustrated at my useless self. I had the chance why didn't I took it.
"Lina are you okay?" Mom said, entering the room wiping her hand on a piece of towel.
My mom took my silence as an answer. "Is it about Haru? oh honey it okay, everyone at some point in their life gets reject by their crush" Mom consoled.
"MOM NO!" I lift my head and yell.
"Lina watches your tone," Mom rebuked.
"I'm sorry, it not that I got rejected, I didn't even confess to Haru," I said, then burying my face in the pillow again.
"You didn't confess?" Mom said surprised.
"I thought today you were gonna finally confess, you even wear your lucky sock," Mom said, as I feel her gaze at the back of my head.
"I was too nervous to say it," I said.
"I disappoint in you Lina, I raise you to be brave and strong," Mom said, standing from the bed and place both her hand on her waist.
"If you don't confess to him, I will take him besides Haru is so my type, I don't mind having him here full time to help me with the housework," Mom joked.
"Mooomm, so gross. What will dad say?" I said as a shiver ran down my spine.
"Dad will understand beside he enjoying heaven right now, he doesn't mind me having a fling or two. Don't you know I'm in the market right now," Mom said, then place a finger on her butt while making a sizzling sound.
"Oh dad, look what mom has become," I said, pretend to call out to dad, Mom let out a chuckle.
"Enough joking around, I need to reheat the dinner since you came home late today," Mom said, then she exit the room and head downstairs.
After mom left the room I went to the desk facing the window, taking a seat at the chair near it. Then I move the art university pamphlet to the left and open up the drawing book. I look out of the window toward where Haru house is, grabbing the nearest pencil, I begin to draw. In my sketch, Haru is sitting on a bench with me beside him, he leans against me as our hand interlocked together.
As I imagine the sketch in my mind, a feeling of a warm as Haru place his hand on my heads resurface again and fill my heart with warmth as I remember it.
Then I look up back again to the window and I saw smoke coming out from Haru house.
"HARU!!" I scream.
I ran downstairs and toward the kitchen to get help from my mom, "MOM, HARU HOUSE IS ON FIRE!!!".
"Are you sure!?" Mom asked I nod.
"I'm going to call the fire department," mom said then quickly rush to the phone and start dialing the emergency number.
"They not gonna make it!!" I said, impatient, I ran toward the door.
I can hear my mom call out to me but I ignore it and continue running to get out of the house. After I arrive in the front yard, I look at my motorcycle "I'm not gonna to make it." I said aloud.
I focus on my center and start running, the moment I gain enough speed, I close my eyes and jump toward the sky.
Opening my eyes again, I was surprised to find myself up in the air and able to control my movement. I shake my thought away, this is no time to be surprised what I can do I need to save Haru.
I turn my body facing Haru house, and flew toward it.
With my momentum from the flying, I crashed through the back door of the house, the door break and flew apart. Fire envelop everything from the furniture to the wall of the house as I look around the house, even the altar where Haru parent picture is,
"HARU!!" I called out, nobody answer.
"UNCLE TOUKA!!!" I called out, nobody answer.
I hold my breath and begins searching blindly, hoping that they are alright, please just be alright. I try to search but the black smoke from the fire limit my vision, I begin to felt despair as I try to search for them.
Please let them be alright.
I'm begging here.
Suddenly a crow enters the burning house form the kitchen and flew toward the living room landing next to a burning beam and squawk calling me toward it. I was surprised but I know now is not the time, so I head toward the beam and shocked to find Haru underneath it.
Lina quickly lift the burning beam without thinking, she felt only the heat of the burning wood but ignore it, I lift and throws the beam away from Haru. I look at Haru back, it was blackened from the burning beam that was on top of him. A pain crept into my heart as I saw her love in suffering, I shake my thought, I need to get Haru out of here.
So I lift Haru with both of my hand and quickly get out through the kitchen door. The moment I step outside the door with Haru in my hand and into the backyard. The house begins to collapse on itself, I turn back to see the house collapse and saw the same crow flapping it wing, escaping the house and landed on top of the tree in the backyard, it squawk.
I look at the crow but my attention was grabbed by Haru, whimper "No cop, no hospital". He needs the medical treatment but I don't want to go against his wish, so I jump and flew toward my house.
As I arrive and land in front of the backyard, I saw mom worried face holding her mouth and gasp as she saw the condition that Haru was in.
"We need to get him to a hospital!!" Mom said.
"Mom no, no police, no hospital, Haru told me," I said.
"what?!" mom said "okay, okay I know someone, gets him inside," mom said.
I carried Haru inside of the house, I can hear mom talking to someone using the phone. I ignore it and focus only on Haru. I arrive in my room, laying him on the bed. I look at his burned cloth, I begin to tear it and removing it from his body.
I cover Haru lower half with a blanket, tears fall down to Haru chest as I broke into tears seeing Haru in so much pain, I fall to my knee and hold his hand.
"Haru please be alright, I can't lose someone I love again, please don't leave," I said.
"I should send you home myself then maybe I could have done something to prevent this," I said as I wipe my tears away.
Mom entered the room, "Please help Haru mom" I plead,
"Don't worry Honey, I brought someone that can help his a doctor," Mom said, older gentlemen enter the room with a bag in his hand. "Come here honey, let the man do his work," Mom said.
I reluctantly let go of Haru hand, running toward my mom, face first into my mother chest, then I sob furiously.
"He will be okay Honey don't worry" mom comfort me. I look at the doctor as he begins to examine Haru body. I wish that all of this will end over soon and everything will be back to normal.
But deep down, I know that everything will never be the same again.
