As I went home alone, I can't really stop looking at my necklace.
But what Alex did earlier is really impossible to forget. But
thank goodness he didn't kiss me somewhere else. Oh, what was I
thinking?! thinking weird things like that was way too
unexpected. I finally arrived and called Mom because I'm back.
But she noticed me frowning and asked,
"You don't seem like yourself today. Did something happen?"
Now that I think about it, there has been a lot happening and I
don't know which to start. "Mom..?" I began. "Can I ask you
"You can ask me anything, sweetie." she smiled at me.
I gasped for breath, because I was nervous. And then I said,
"What will you think if I already found the boy from seven years
ago? I mean, I've been searching for him all these years and
you're the one supporting me."
Mom widened her eyes. I knew it was an off-topic question because
I told her a long time ago that I will find him. "Well," she
began. "It's hard to say in words but, if you do found him, it's
up to you on what will you do next."
The last part nearly confused me. How? Alex was the boy so, what
will I do now? All I was focusing on is to find him and nothing
How about we'll skip to Sunday, shall we?
I woke up and I looked at the clock. 9:30!!! I overslept. I
looked at the phone and Alex texted that we will meet at the
park. Okay, it's thirty minutes until date time and I have to go,
fast. I took a quick bath and chose a black top, lavender blazer,
blue pants, and a pair of silver sandals. I tied my hair to a
ponytail so no one will notice my bedhead appearance. I told my
mom I have to go shopping and I'll be back in the afternoon. I
finally arrived in the park just in time and Alex was shocked why
I looked tired.
"I never expected you to be quick. I just got here, you know." he
"I'm so sorry. My house is a little far from here so I'd have to
run or I'll be late." I tried to smile but it broke to a sigh.
"You're wearing that necklace from before." Alex pointed at the
silver butterfly hanged by a long siver chain.
"Oh," I looked at the necklace and replied. "I just thought I
could stop wearing the bracelet for a while and change into
But I noticed Alex was frowning and I don't know why. Maybe he
thinks the bracelet was precious? Or not? "Alex..? What's wrong?"
He looked at me and laughed a little. "I'm so sorry. Nothing's
wrong at all. You don't have to worry about anything."
"You always say that." I said.
"Oh, sorry," He apologized. "I just don't know why I've been
acting this way."
"So do I." I snapped. "Alex, what are you trying to hide from
me?" I just don't want any of this to continue so I'll have to
ask him now.
"Haley, you can't be serious. Why are you asking that kind of
question to me." he tried to avoid me but I wasn't finished.
"Tell me. You haven't answered my question yet."
"Say it." I know I've been straightforward now but I just can't
stand seeing a person feeling down about something and they don't
want to share it. Alex is one of them and I must not let this
"All right." Alex sighed as he gave up. "What I wanted to tell
His reply was interrupted by a sound of a cellphone. But it
wasn't mine. It was Alex's. He got it and answered it.
"..yes. Okay." Was all I managed to hear. He hang up and looked
at me. "Haley, I'm sorry. I can't continue our date today."
"What? Why?" I asked him. "Is something wrong?"
"No, not really." he frowned. "But I just recieved a call from my
mom. She's back."
"That's great." I said. So, I'll get to meet Alex's mother but
the most disappointing thing was he never managed to finish the
sentence about what he is hiding this whole time. It's either a
good thing or a bad thing...that's what I think for today.
