The spotlight shined on to my face as I said the line from my script. To my own surprise, I had not stuttered once through the words in the thick packet my teacher had written. The next line, however, was a tongue twister. I really couldn't figure out what it was saying, even though I was the lead role. My job was to understand the words, and characters completely, despite I was the shyest girl in the play; which explained why I had private rehearsals.

"Orchid," I stopped in the middle of an exhausted-exhale and looked to my teacher, "very good today, I will see you tomorrow after school." she smiled and walked out of the auditorium.

I rolled my eyes up to the ceiling until the double doors smacked shut; zapping me back to the sad reality I live through called life. Once my head met a straight view that overlooked the ruby seats, I saw a young adult, probably around my age, sitting in the furthest seat in the back. He was in a bright yellow raincoat that reflected on the windows that were splashed with clear water droplets.

"Who," I stumbled over my words, "who are you?"

"I'm Nathan," his voice sounded weak and as if his vocal cords were being pulled and strained.

"I'm Orchid," I responded.

He didn't say anything after I told him my name but he looked up and his eyes that coughed out tears filled with happiness. I began to walk towards him as if I were being magnetically pulled. He stood up and smiled.

"Have you ever lost the love of your life?" I nodded no, "Well, I knew who she was, but then, she disappeared, and she's just..." he trailed off and sighed, "in a different world,"

"What do you mean?" my sweet voice cracked and echoed.

"I cannot say, but nevertheless, I will assure seeing you in the future. Everything will be okay, and I will explain later Orchid, but for now, I must go." he ran out of the theatre and I followed with curiosity itching at me.

"Wait!" I cried out.

He ran around the corner and I followed his action only to be suddenly surprised, considering he wasn't there anymore. I panted deeply and hastily went back into the empty theatre to go to the other side of the building. I opened the door and he was there. I smacked my head into his chest and hugged him in a tight embrace; refraining from letting him go.

"Please," I looked up to him.

His hazel eyes ached with pain and a hurting love.

"What world is she in?" I could feel the tingles in my nose, signaling I was going to tear or cry.

I was misunderstanding myself and pictures I've never seen before flooded into my mind.

"Yours," he responded and broke free.

I let go and somewhere deep down, I understood clearly why this was the way it had to be.
