It was fourteen years ago when my parents died the day before my 6th birthday. I never thought they would leave me so quickly. I was left alone with my house maids. They tried to cheer me up. They bought me many presents and candy. I was happy that they cared for me. So I stayed strong.

Ever since I was in junior high school, I was always outcast. I never knew why, but I was always happy and cheerful. Not that long ago after my first day at High school. I received a love letter shoved in my desk. In the letter it was written by an upper classmen. He told me to meet him afterschool at the track field that day. I was so happy and couldn't wait to get to know who this person was. So right when that last bell rang I ran to the track field. When I there, the gym class was still gathering up to leave. I stood there waiting for the upperclassmen to show up. When most of the gym class left one of the guys from the gym class was looking at me and asked me.

"Did you receive my letter?"

He had blonde hair, greenish blue eyes, and he was still in his gym clothes, a white t-shirt and navy blue shorts. It seems he was just running laps he was sweating a lot too. And so I answered him.

Eufie: "Yes, I did, my name is Eufie, I am a freshman from class B, and it’s nice to meet you."

Rusuke: "oh, my name is Rusuke, I am a junior from class E, and it’s nice to meet you too."

Eufie: "Do you mind me asking, but what did you need me to come here for?"

Rusuke: "Eufie..."

Eufie: "Yes...what is it Rusuke? Is something the matter?"

Rusuke: "Let's go on a date"

Eufie: "Huh?!?! Uhh..Sure!"

Rusuke: "I was wondering if you wanted to do karaoke today"

Eufie: "oh, that would be great!"

And since that day I really thought I was in heaven. Rusuke rented a karaoke room just for the two of us. At first I was afraid of sing by myself, but then bit by bit I felt like it was ok. Two weeks later after we first met. He asked me to be his girlfriend I told him yes. By then we went to many dates on the beaches, gaming arcades, to the zoo, amusement parks, movie theaters, restaurants. I was so sure we were going to be together forever.

He introduced me to so many people. It felt like I was friends with everybody at school. I never knew that Rusuke was that famous in school. But I can see why, he haves such a calm and cool personality. I started to join after schools clubs. I joined the music club. I guess it's something I think is really challenging.

On the day of New Year's Eve, I called Rusuke and asked him if he wanted to spend the evening with me. But he didn't answer. I called him three more times but he still didn't answer. Two days later it was Monday, I went to school and Rusuke wasn't there. Now I was really worried. I tried talking the kids at school but they all ignored me as if I wasn't even there. I ran around asking teachers and students about him and they all said to me:

"Rusuke? I'm pretty sure he's fine, that boy is a real slacker, always skipping"

And I thought for a second. If he is skipping, then what is he doing?
