Chapter 13 – His Dad

Mara’s breathing paused when she kissed Jun Xiong. She had no idea where her courage came from. She only knew that the precious touch of his face would stay with her forever. I hope he feels the same way as I do

Her eyes were fixed on the ground. Mara was too shy to look at him. With a racing heart, her thoughts were focussed on the kiss alone.

“May I send you back?” Jun Xiong offered.

“Yes.” Mara nodded her head meekly and smiled. A bubble of happiness was warming up in her heart. She never thought that she would ever feel this way.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

A week had passed. Mara had focused all her strength in searching for Jun Xiong’s family. The first 3 days had been especially gruelling. She was totally clueless. She had been questioning Jun Xiong’s old neighbours for his family whereabouts. Each time she asked, the answer had remained a disappointing no. As Jun Xiong explained that his relationship with his neighbours were a far cry from amiable, he stayed at a distance whenever she was questioning them.

By the fourth day, they got lucky. One of his neighbours spotted Jun Xiong’s Dad at East Coast Park. They swiftly followed up with this lead. For the next few days, they were camping at East Coast Park. All in all, a week had passed and they were still at East Coast Park.

“I don’t think he’s ever coming here again.” Jun Xiong sighed dejectedly.

“No. I believe he will. Look up. It’s a starry night. He might just come here to look at the stars.” Mara’s faith was still strong. Seeing him gloomy depressed her deeply.

“I hope you’re right.”

“It must be the case. My sixth sense tells me he’ll come tonight. How about we get ice-cream and wait for him?” Mum said ice-cream can make us happier, Mara thought to herself.

“I don’t feel like eating one now. You can go ahead to buy. I’ll wait here for you.” Jun Xiong smiled. Well, at least he’s smiling

“Ok. I’ll be right back.” Mara strolled away from the beach towards a make-shift ice-cream cart.

“Miss, which flavour do you want?” The vendor asked her.

“I want a… “ Mara’s voice broke off… She had wanted a chocolate ice-cream but she could not continue with her order. Her heart made a leap and she nearly squealed with joy.

Mara came face-to-face with Jun Xiong’s Dad.
