i immediately shift and flip the book of the page nicol said and started reading

i shut the book

''When someone you love dies...one must commit suicide?''reiji boredly asked as she continue reading the book shes holding''how ridiculous "she added

Only when you really love someone,been looking at her for such a long time you will never get tired of her"nicole said and looked at me

''Tearjerker! "

''beyond the boundary

"If you know the world was going to end tomorrow ,you probably would feel like doing much of anything right

What if the world will turn its back at you what would you do?''

''Oh you mean like that in the book? ''

nicol nodded

''i dont know....maybe i'll do things like going out on date maybe

"Was that a joke?"

bicol shook his head "No it isn't"

" eh"I asked. There was a long pause, silence in the room. The only thing that could be heard is my heart beating nervously

"Yeah,just forget about it you look dumb you dummy”he said and left the room

**

I had a long day yesterday.but atleast im done with my book report.I'm so glad claudia was there to help me.

I also learn from gabriel that yahiro used to clean the only music.room.in.the general.department building that's why i decided to clean it myself.so.that yahiro don't have to

its.my way to say thank you for saving.me

i took my handkerchief and starting to wipe the dirt off the keys when i.suddenly.feel a presence behind my back so i turned around to.see who it was

oh it was reiji''i said in disappointment and ignored her

i still don't like how he dragged me away.i wonder why reiji reacted that way

i never saw her like that before

''what is it?''reiji pouted and looked annoyed

she walked in front of me and stared at me with a smile

''go-good morming reiji''i shyly greeted her

''let me help you"reiji said with as smile as she leaned her face close to mine

i looked at her confusedly but she just giggled and took the handkerchief from my hand and she started cleaning the piano key

I feel I'm self conscious towards Reiji right now....maybe it's because of her new look ?

i felt awkward so i gently jump backwards and pretended i'm trying to arranged the chair near the window.which is not far from the piano

I glanced at Reiji, who was busy wiping the piano.

she was sweating and still catching her breath.the music department is far away.not to mention we are currently in the fourth floor.she.must have run all the way here

why do i feel like this towards her.was it because im being self conscious when she's around

i imagined how she pulled me away from cecilion during the concours.her hair was tied up and even shes a girl...she looked really handsome ...especially how she play .her music.is very warm and gentle

''she seems really jealous about something.or am i imagining things?''

i felt sorry for reiji and i want to make it up for her

i walked towards her direction and handed her a towel''ah reiji use this''i said shyly and turned away my gaze''i mean,if you're barehanded,your skin will get all roughi always carry a spare pair anyway and they're cheap''

katarina''she said as she reached out the towel i gave to her

''im happy to have you helping me out''i said when the door knob started to twist

in shocked i grabbed reijis hand and pulled her to hind behind the bookshelf away from the piano

my heart is beating so fast in nevous as i saw yahiro walked close to the piano and run his fingers.to it to see if theres dust

"why do you like yahiro so much?"reiji asked in a gentle low voice

"huh??...well...by the time i realized..before i knew it already started feeling this way"i said as i looked down

"im the same..."reiji responded with a gentle look on her face as she stared into my eyes

i noticed reiji's long eyelashes and beautiful eyes and at that moment i lost with her beautiful hair gently swayed by the wind synchronizing with the window curtains''its beautiful''i said without even thinking

"katarian....your feelings...i'll help them come true''reiji wink as i let her outta my grip and walked towards yahiro

''hey yahiro!"

"katarina already cleaned that pianos key"eiji said in an annoyed tone

"thank you..katarina campbell"yahiro said as he keep scrubing the piano keys "but i cant be relax unless i do it myself "he added

but right then i loud echoed throughout of the hallway

what was that?

it came from behind the building

let's give it a look

when we rushed on the we heard the explosion

gabriel and a black hair guy beside him

gabriel luke what's going on?''reiji.yelled in panicked as we saw gabriel fighting some unfamiliar guys

''what are you?stay away from me you moron don't come any closer''

what

it wasted no time in rushing towards me and yahiro wasted no time and jump.and kicked.the guy who was about to attack me

''how come delinquents like them can intrude the academys boundary?'gabriel's face seen to take on a dark shadow ''and how dare he tried to attack princess''he added.in whispered

whats going on?y

his expression was just like it had back then when i fist saw him

ab expressionless doll

you gotta be kidding me

reiji pulled me and covered my with her back''why are they show up here?i panicked asked

that is when yahuro tuee and turned behind him''ah that's what this all about''said in an ice cold tone

''yo yahiro''

who?!

''the king of illegal deals himself''yahiro.responded

''you're watching us aren't you?show yourself''with yahiros call, a boy with light skinned boy with an average height with his black long wolf haircut that reaches to his shoulders show up of the bushes

how did you know?''

rindou!''i called him out

he glanced to me and let out a gentle smile

''so this is rindou?''gabriel said as he glared at rindou

''save us the trouble of finding him''reiji said

we heard everything from paxley.could you just come quietly without putting a fight?”reiji said

''you betrayed me yahiro?''rindou asked as his eyes widened

Chapter 30:black sheep

The air seemed to become thick with tension as rindou raised his head and glared at yahiro in disbelief

no that's not true!!''i couldn't help but shout

“Katarina''rindoi whispered as his eyes shocked to see me

“rindou please listen”

it is understandable that you would think he betrayed you but yahueos is not betraying you at all”ii said as tears form in my eyes”he just want you to realize so please”

Rinodous eyes visually softened as he saw the tears escape from my eyes.

|katarina ''yahiro place his hand on my head

yahiro i'm so sorry i spoke out of” i said.i made the situation worst.i hide everything to protect him but at what cost.am i going to get expelled?

its okay.thank you for that” he whispered with a smile on his face”thus is something i should have done”with that he gently pat me on the head and step in front

let's end this alright

you can't be serious”rindou said, crossing his arms over his ches

i don't want you to dig a pit for yourself any longer

you're choosing them over me?”He said firmly, making me gulp.He caught me staring at him“i see...because of that girl right?”

''katarina reminds me of someone who is dear to me''my chest tighten at yahiros words

“why you're so naive”He sniffled as he slowly sat up, looking at Namjoon and Jin with sad eyes you even play piano for her which the thing you really hate more than anything in this world”

“piano is what brings your life in despair right?”

''don't put a fight let's deal with this peacefully''gabriel said as he was about to attack rindou when took a small bottle.from his pocket”sorry but i can't afford to get caught yet”

i heard a shuttered glass and the whole area.was covered the smoke

it took other students attention and cane in rish to see what's going one

rindou''i worriedly called out his name but as soon as the smoke slowly vanished.rindou is.nowhere to be seen.as well as the other delinquents who attack gabriel

what had just happened

gabriel run towards me and held my hands

are you okay princess?'”he worriedly asked as he worriedly looked at me with his beautiful emerald eyes as his hair swayed by the wind with every single stand like honey mixed with the most precious golds.

I looked up with a smile on my face as i nodded”thank you gabriel”

''damn that boy''reiji kicked.a stone and sends it through the air

“whats going on''i heard one of the student whispered

''aren't they the supreme council''

Where does that smoke screen come from?

''i wonder why the president is here.as well as his captain''

''yeah even the vice president is here.there must be something going”

“We gotta fix this mess gabriel;”reiji said to gabriel seriously crossing her arms over her chest as she glared at yahiro and him away from me”check katarina later”i heard her said sa she waved goodbye at me

I timidly flash a smile and take a look over at yahiro,starting over in the direction of rindou had disappeared in which a fainted.look on his face”yahiro?”i called out

“sorry i was just thinking about things”he responded shaking his head

“Are you alright?”

im fine”he said with a comforting look on his face.but i'm not buying it.

“You don't have to pretend you're ….Rindou was your friend, right?”

“yeah''he whispered and with that.yahirp look into the distance as if he were reminiscing something''i could call randel the first friend i've ever made and the man who taught me how to play piano because he want me to play the piano on his behalf”

“He must be someone important to you”

he is but he wasn't a good friend”

What do you mean?

things were rough you could say,we did a lot of things to survive

we survive together ...through the heck of a life we had''

What do you mean by heck of life?

“i grew up in slums''yahiro shortly responded

''you did''i asked in surprised but yahiro flash a gentle smile on his face''you look pretty surprised''

“im sorry but yes i am''i whispered as i looked away”i thought you came from a rich family”i added

“i bet you wouldn't expect someone from the slums to be a student at one of the worlds greatest music academy”

“everyone around us either nobler or rich”

and as for me living in slums i'm not going to get people threatening me normally

i was forced to play piano in such a young age to earn money however,after that one fateful.incident on stage my mom starting to hate piano and forbid me to even touch to see it

so that's why he dislikes music students but Yahiro...and randel went through many hardships, as danger steps in their way.

i felt a stabbing pain in my chest.he gently took my hands''but my love for piano still burns inside me and thanks to you i was able to play ''yahiro held.my hands tightly

i almost felt like like id stayee from his strength as he look at me with his beautiful colored.mismatched eyes shining like stars in daylight

''will you pity me katarina?...''

i want to help you if you're suffering..were friends right”i found myself, muttering comforting words to yahiro

“friends huh?''with that yahiro gently let go of my hands''don't you think the word friend id just so bothersome?

especially when it comes to love?''

i looked at him confusedly....what is this guy talking about

“nothing let's go''with that yahiro pulled away from me

love...is something i wouldn't be under dadt yahiro”i thought to myself as The wind caressed my face, ruffled my hair, it was like a dream that I hoped to never wake up fro

i kept catching glanced yahiro.i didn't know and i couldbt tell just how sincere he was

Whenever I look at yahiros face,my heart starts racing...even the first.time i ever saw him.With another blow of the wind that swayed my hair and clothes to the side, He looked at me deep into my eyes,with his beautiful eyes…like jewel. not even looking any other direction

there's,something about him familiar to me as if we've been together all our lives
