Song Part 1
| 4 | 5
Emily Radley sat in music class with
her beady eyes focused on Thomas. How she loved his
icy glare and his silvery blonde hair. The time ticked
by slowly as Emily spent thirty minutes staring at
the side of Thomas’s face. She noticed him glancing
towards Yuri several times and her eyes narrowed into
‘He never even looked at me.’ Emily thought
angrily, her glint filled with jealousy.
What’s so great about that Yuri girl anyway?
Emily had always been known as the Princess of Beauty
to all her schoolmates and her wealthy background
was most admirable. Most boys wanted to have Emily
as their girlfriend. And yet, Emily thought glumly,
the only boy she loved never even showed the slightest
interest towards her. But somehow, Emily Radley was
going to get what she wanted, even if her father’s
money couldn’t buy it.
Emily took out her most expensive quill and slid
it into Yuri’s schoolbag carefully and slowly.
The girl glanced around to make sure no one was watching
before she burst into a fit of fake tears. All heads
turned to her.
“Miss Radley, what’s wrong?” the teacher, Ms.
“My quill! My most expensive and precious quill is gone!
It was a gift from my grandma, before she died!” Emily sobbed,
pretending to look devastated.
Everyone began to look around for her pen.
“Everyone turn your bags inside out.” The teacher
Everyone did so obediently. Emily saw with grim satisfaction that
Yuri looked dumbstruck when the quill fell out of her backpack.
“Yuri Kowan, how dare you!” Emily cried, pointing
a menacing finger at Yuri.
“You are a thief!”
Everyone threw loathing looks at Yuri and the teacher scolded
“Miss Kowan, you must understand that thievery is strictly
forbidden and will not be tolerated at this school. I will have
to report this. Do you have anything to say?”
Yuri looked at Emily in disbelief but did not say anything. Emily
sneered at her.
“No, this is unacceptable, Ms. Spinner. I will take the
punishment.” Yuri said after a moment.

Thomas stared at Yuri in astonishment. He saw Emily
‘Why hadn’t she denied it?’ He thought,
Long after class was over, Thomas watched Yuri wash
the blackboard and scrub the tables. He stood waiting
until she was done, then stepped up to her.
“Want to go for a walk?” he asked quietly.
Yuri looked up in surprise.
Yuri and Thomas walked along the sandy beach in silence.
They both stared at their feet and the sand and were
careful to avoid each other’s eyes. Finally,
Thomas broke the silence.
“Why didn’t you deny it and speak the
truth? Look at your hands, they are blistering and
red from all that work and yet, why did you not tell
the truth to avoid such pain?” he asked, finally
finding his voice.
It was his first time taking a walk with a girl and
he never knew it would be so awkward. For a moment,
Yuri didn’t reply, as if thinking of an answer.
“Emily Radley is not someone you would want
to mess with. She is stubborn as a rock and wouldn’t
give up until she gets her way. If I don't give up,
she will think of more ways to accuse me.” Yuri
“You know, she seems very attracted to you.”
Yuri added as an afterthought, or perhaps to change
Thomas’s face darkened instantly.
“That’s none of your business.”
He said shortly.
“I’ve known Emily for a long time and
she is not quite my type.”
Yuri fell silent.
“It’s getting cold, let’s go back
Thomas suggested after another moment of silence.
Yuri nodded and they started to walk back to the school.
That night Yuri dreamt of Simon again. She dreamt that he had
come back to life and they were reunited. Her heart was filled
with happiness. They were to be wedded. On the happiest day of
Yuri’s life, just when it was the moment for Simon to give
Yuri her ring, Emily came up and stabbed her in the back. She
felt intense pain and saw Simon fading away - Yuri woke up screaming
and sobbing. It was then that she realized she was still in her
dormitory and that Simon was dead. It was close to midnight and
to Yuri’s enormous relief, Emily had not yet returned. Her
thoughts drifted to Simon and her heart sank.
‘Why did she have to think about him?’ She thought
All she wanted was Simon’s life back.

Just then the dormitory door opened and the figure
of a boy came in. Yuri sat up with her eyes slightly
unfocused. As her vision slowly cleared, she gasped.
It was Simon.
“Yuri, are you alright?” Simon said.
“I heard you screaming.”
Yuri threw her arms around Simon’s neck.
“Simon, why did you have to leave me like that?
You really… Really scare me when the police
officer said you died in that crash!” Yuri murmured,
hugging him close to her.
Her tears were mingled with sweat from her dream and
she held him tightly.
Thomas was totally surprised. Yuri clung onto his
neck and broke down completely. He didn’t know
why he didn’t shove her off and snap at her
to come back to reality, but he didn’t. He just
let her hug him and weep.
“How could you leave me like that? Do you know how much
I missed you? I thought about you every night, Simon. I love you
so much.” Yuri wept and her voice was shattering.
Thomas didn’t speak.
“Simon, please don’t leave me again…”
Then, to Thomas’s astonishment, she pressed her soft lips
on his and kissed him softly.
‘She is in so much pain and suffering.’ Thomas thought
She must’ve loved Simon with all of her heart. Tears slid
rapidly down Yuri’s face from her half opened eyes. Just
then, Yuri gasped in surprise and stopped kissing Thomas.
“I… I’m so sorry, Thomas.” She apologized
Thomas continued to stare at Yuri.
“It’s alright.” He said, beginning to blush.
“I’d better go now.” he said awkwardly.
Yuri blushed and nodded. She draped a robe around her shoulders
and escorted Thomas downstairs.
“Could you tell me who Simon is?” Thomas asked.
Yuri looked at him and shook her head sadly.
“I’m afraid not, Thomas,” she said quietly.
Thomas’s smile faded.
“You know, it’s better if you stopped living in the
shadow of that dead boy!” he said stiffly and his lips pursed
in a thin line.
Yuri turned to Thomas in disbelief.
“How I live my life is my business, not yours!” she
“Use your brains, if you have any.” Thomas shot back.
“What good is it to live your life thinking Simon will be
back, when he will never?”
The girl felt a fresh wave of tears flow down her face.
“And what would you know about love, Thomas Vacur?”
she snapped coldly.
“I bet a block of ice like you have never loved anyone in
your life! How would you know how I loved Simon?”
Thomas didn’t answer. Yuri stared furiously at him for a
moment, and then stormed back to her dormitory. She slammed her
door shut. Emily had not yet returned. Yuri was glad. She was
getting sick of the girl’s taunting. Yuri stood fuming for
a long time as hot tears sting her eyes bitterly.
