Hmmm she's pretty and simple and if your going to look at her clearly she looks like waiting for someone or should i say she is.... Waiting for her lover, but her lover is not always coming for her........... " " YES I KNEW IT!! THANK YOU GOD FOR HAVING THIS SMART BRAIN! " The boy took his stuff and start painting the girl. But there is another girl who came and talk to the girl and it looks like she is a friend of her and she is compeling the girl to go, but the girl looks like she doesn't want to go, but her friend is pleasing her to go. then a later on they leave the park together.

She need to act like she's waiting for someone but what is she doing right now??, oh God i need to finished this day before the lady goes back to my shop" The girl is still writing on the paper. Then daryl just let the girl carry the paper and he start to paint the girl. A later on the friend of the girl came again and she looks like she is scolding the girl, then a few minutes later they leave the park again. But daryl is a little bit happy because he already paint the girl but he needs to put some perfect background for the girl. After he go home he stare at the bench and he imagine the girl. "oh, what are you thinking daryl? She will never likes you, you looks like a beggar so don't ever try to talk to her" he said to himself then he go to his house then he take a bath then go to his bed. He lay on his bed and start to stare at the ceiling of his bedroom while thinking about the girl. "she looks so nice and simple and also humble, but why do i like her? I don't really know her and i know that she doesn't care about me, about my life and to my work also, *sigh* i shouldn't attract with that kind of girl, and i should finish my painting to gave it to the lady, and after that i need to forget that girl and focus on my own life, yes you're right!.

She always straggling on the hospital just to came here and to see you. I wish that you confessed at her at first, so that my friend will be happy because you talk to her, my friend always saying that to me that she wishes that she could talk to you even once after she died, but it's too late for that" Daryl was speechless, he didnt know what to do, besides he repented because he didn't confess to the girl, the friend of the girl leave while she left daryl standing alone, until he remember that he should finished his painting. Then he go to his favorite spot then start to finish his work while crying. A later on he get back to his house but the lady didn't go back so he decided to close the shop then he go upstair on his bedroom while carrying the paper that the girl gave to him. He open it then he saw himself on the paper while he is painting.

Love Yunique ??"

After reading the letter, daryl was covered by his tears on his face, he is sobbing while saying.. "i will *sob*...... I will *sob... " He didn't expect that he is going to cry a lot even though he didn't talk to that girl at once, he didn't know why he is crying so hard and besides he repented that he didn't confess at her. The morning comes then daryl got up with a swollen eyes and you will see the sadness on his face he go to the bathroom to wash up. A later on he hear someones knocking so loud at his shop so he go quickly downstairs to look who it is, then when he see who it is he got shocked and open the door. "oh it was you ma'am" "yes and this is my father or should i say the mayor" "oh.. Hello mayor, nice meeting you" "so where is the painting, i need to see it now" the lady said" "oh here it is! " " so what's with that girl? *confused look*" " This painting is based on a true story, as you can see the girl sitting on the bench looks like waiting for someone while carrying a piece of paper. As you will look at the face of the girl he look so pale but still has a beautiful smile she want to be look pretty when she's going to see the guy that she likes, but behind those smile she's hiding the hurt that she feels every time. That girl was so very tricky, the way she walk, the way she sit, and the way she smile was so tricky *sob* that the guy didn't recognize that she is suffering from her disease. The paper was drawing by her and the drawing was the guy, she always waiting that guy on that park to give that drawing with a letter for the guy. The trees behind her symbolizes the time when she is waiting for that guy, as you can see the leaves of the tree is going all down piece by piece. It means that the girl is waiting the guy since the tree was standing tall and beautiful with a lush fruits on it until the time goes by the tree goes weaker as her, and the tree gets withered but the girl was still there she didn't give up until she doesn't giving that paper to the guy until she got a right time to confessed to that guy. But she didn't attain to do it because she died and dont have a power to fight her disease. As you can see the hair of the girl was so beautiful and so shiny that the guy was tricked again by her, because her hair was just a wig, that she always wear to hide her bald hair. I name this art as YUNIQUE, because that was the name of the girl and besides her name was so unique that my art looks more peculiar than my other works." " OH MY GOD, dad can we bought that painting???. Please????? " " ok dear, so how much is that huh? " " this... This painting was not for sale! " "but! What do you want? An expensive fee?! Ok i will buy that paintings at 10,000!" "nope! I will not sell it. Never! " " but why?! Do you want me to close your shop??! " " i dont want to, but if its that you want *sigh* go ahead" The mayor closed the shop and cast away daryl from their town. Daryl bought a frame for his yunique. He finds a place where he can sleep but he only found a place where there's no person and he sleep there for a while. A few months later daryl doesn't already have a home and he turn to looks like a beggar his beard gets longer and his skin covered by a dirt and some people is gaving him a food or drinks. Daryl stare at his paint. "what did you do to me yunique huh? *chuckles*.. *sigh* you said that i will be a successful person someday and i will have a big big shop huh? I think, we're just going to be like this forever, is that okay to you? I can't give you a big house a good life huh? Why did you admire me? I am just a worthless person *sob*" The people was chatting about him and thinks that he is crazy, because he is talking on a painting. The other took a picture of him then uploaded on social media. Until it goes viral then there is a guy who get interested on the painting, then go ahead at daryl's place. He saw daryl was so misreable so he took a pity on him. "hey! I like your painting" "I'm not going to sell this!" "no! I just want to help you, if you only want, i will lend you my shop and i know that you are really good at painting, so you can sell your stuff there" Daryl gets up. "really?! " " yes, besides i have so many shop that i couldnt handle it one by one" "are you really serious that you will trust your shop to a beggar like me?? " " who says that you're a beggar huh? *chuckles* you should take a bath and start a new day" He smiled then daryl go with him. "why do you want to help me? " " because when i saw your painting i get interested on it. And i know that you can help me also to recognize my name and my shop" A later on daryl saw the shop and it was so beautiful and its so big. He was so amazed and jump excitedly because of happiness and he said to himself that, he will start a new day. He paint and paint and paint until the number of his costumer gets bigger. Daryl feel so better now. 60 years ago daryl was 73 years old and his name was so popular right now and he has a big big shop. Daryl visited yunique at the museum. Yes the other of his paintings are in the museum. He look smiling at the painting of yunique and he heard a child saying.. "oh teacher, that girl was yunique right? " " hmm yes, why?? " " i like her story, and they said that the guy who is yunique's admiring is the one who paint her there" "yes you're right angelo, the painter of that painting was fell in love with yunique also, that's why he doesn't sell yunique with others even though he lost his only shop, the painter turns into a beggar but because of that painting, he became a successful person and he is now a popular artist in asia and he is Mr. Daryl hartist, Mr. Daryl was so loyal at yunique that he marry her.. " " huh? Excuse me ma'am, how did Mr. Daryl married yunique,? as i know yunique died that she doesn't talk to Mr. Daryl even once" - a girl interupted. "hmm as i know Mr. Daryl took a priest and other person as a witness of their wedding, and as we can see the hand of yunique on the painting has a ring that my grandmother told me that when she first saw that painting, yunique doesn't have any ring on his hand. " " ohhh im so jealous at yunique!, i wish i could met a person who looks like Mr. Daryl" Daryl was smiling while listening at their story. Daryl was so thankful for yunique because he knows that, yunique helps him to be a person right now. Yunique granted her promises to daryl, but daryl still repenting on what happened, that he should talk at her even once because he didnt know what kind of voice yunique has. Daryl is an old person now who is very popular on his country and he proved to the person how he loves yunique and he is content on what he is right now.
