Maria woke up with renewed energy and was feeling giddy for the morning. The windows outside were foggy, but she could see the tiny specks of snow that settled on her windowsill. She couldn't resist the tingling happiness inside her as she remembered the events that had happened the night before. It was like a dream, yet she knew that it wasn't. She closed her eyes to relieve the moment.

She walked towards her home. Everything around her was covered in snow. The flowers had ceased to bloom, which made it seem more like there was something that was waiting until the warmth came back. The houses were covered in fluffy piles of snow. The landscape was nothing but pure white that only made it more beautiful in her eyes. She loved the fact that it looked so pure. But what made her night more perfect was meeting a young man that she hadn't expected to meet.

A gust of wind blew and she was trying to chase her scarf (which had somehow set itself free) when she bumped into a pair of legs whose owner had held it in his hands. He was unusually tall, with blonde hair and messy bangs that swept to the side. His eyes were of an olive shade. He was holding a hat, which she guessed was supposed to be covering his beautiful face. She felt shy as she retrieved it from him. It hadn't ended there. They talked for most of the night, and he had told her that they would meet again. He had kissed her hand, which only made her face turn red. She was about to ask for his name when he had suddenly vanished.


Nevertheless, she thought that it was a wonderful night. She wasn't usually the type to be around someone like him, but she found it new to feel like this. But she wasn't about to chase some guy she knew for only a night. She shook her head and concentrated on the thought of meeting up with her friends once more to celebrate the start of winter break.
She turned on her iPod and played the most energetic songs to dance to while she prepared for school.

She hadn't noticed the soft whispers that echoed as she was on her way out. She took a peek in the living room and saw her parents talking. Oh, so they were awake, she thought to herself. She entered and saw that they were holding cups of coffee. They seemed perturbed, but it looked like the stocks were going down by a few dollars. Her parents were high-profile talent agents, but they were just ordinary people who loved to observe the most useless things.

"Mom! Dad! Good morning~ I'm off to school now."

Her parents were startled when she greeted them. Apparently, her parents were about to tell her something, but she checked her watch and saw that she had twenty minutes to get to school, and she was running out of time to get there. She gave each of them a kiss, and left the house as fast as her legs could carry her. She was about to take a full sprint to the school when she noticed a rose that was placed on top of the mailbox. She saw the name.

Maria.


She felt a huge grin cover her face. She picked it up and ran all the way to school, given extra energy by the man who gave her the flower. And maybe now she knew what her parents were reluctant to tell her.

"Maria! Don't you dare try to sneak that rose in your locker! What is up? Didn't you say single was better for you?"

Maria turned her head and saw Anya approach her. Her brown tresses reminded Maria of a famous movie star, but she couldn't really recall what she looked like. Anya's hair was clipped back with a black ribbon clip, which was a gift given by Maria herself. Her cheeks were tinted a light pink, as if she was about to burst from not knowing the answer to her question. Anya's green eyes bored into her soul and she flinched in response.

"It's....nothing! Just found it in front of the house."

Anya gave her a whimsical look before talking to her about some TV reality show she saw last night, but all Maria could think about was the rose that had ensued itself in her thoughts. It was only after another voice had called from the distance that she had snapped back to reality.

"Hey Maria! Anya!"

It was Ivan. His black hair looked messed up. He never combed his hair since he didn't have the time to do so. It wasn't in his body clock to wake up early. She waved as he approached them with a confused look in his eyes.

"What's wrong? Are you guys captivated by something again?"

"Apparently, Maria's got some secret she isn't telling us." Anya replied with a gleam in her eye.

"I do not! Now come on, we've got class." Maria retorted as she quickly shut her locker and walked towards her classroom.

The snow was falling gently outside as Maria daydreamed about the man she had met the night before. It was occupying too much things in her mind that even her friends bugged her about it. Now she knew that he had somehow followed her home without her knowing it. It was scary that he would be so silent, but how did he know of her name? She didn't remember telling him about her.

She was disturbed from her thoughts when their teacher caught her attention. Blushing, she straightened from her chair as he discussed some final winter projects. She sighed as she got the idea that tons of work would be coming their way. Everyone groaned and tried to protest against the fact that it was winter break, but Maria kept silent. The teacher waited for the noise to die down before he resumed talking.

"Now class, as a final paper for this course, I would like you to answer some of these questions. Anyway, this will consume all the remaining time you brats have before you claim your bells and candy canes."

He gave the papers to the students and soon enough, the classroom was quiet. The clock was ticking, taunting every one of the time they had left before they could finally get out of class. Maria stared at the words like jumbled paper. She felt like running out of the classroom and immersing herself in her music. She wanted to erase every inch of what had happened the night before. Satisfied with that conclusion, she felt less distracted and returned to her paper.

All was well until the windows had suddenly opened up and a gust of wind had scattered the papers on the floor.

Everyone panicked and desperately tried to pick up the papers and shut the windows. The teacher was questioning everyone on who had played the prank, yet no one was listening as they tried to finish the papers. The bell had signaled five minutes until freedom. The teacher warned every one of them about finishing the paper before class was over. Maria was among the students nearest the windows and so she shut them to block the cold air. All was warm and the noise was slowly dying down. Soon the room was filled with the sounds of scribbling pens.

Maria was excited. Now she could stay away from school for almost a month. All the chocolate she could have had claimed her desires. She was almost done when she noticed a smaller piece of paper stuck to the back page. She muttered under her breath as she read the words, then stopped short. This was no test item. She submitted the paper to the teacher and sat back down to read the message. The bell rang, and the students cheered, but Maria didn't jump for joy. Her attention was glued to the message.

I'm watching you every moment and I would love to see your face once more. Wait for me on the park where we first met.
