Song Part 1

Dawn slowly arises and Thomas was nodding
off towards the wall. Yuri was still unconscious and
he had been with her ever since. Emily and Mr. Spiel
had left later during the night. Yuri began to stir,
causing Thomas to wake up with a start. Yuri’s
eyes slowly fluttered open. She blinked and saw Thomas
peering at her with concern written across every syllable
of his handsome face.
“Oh, hi.” Yuri said stiffly, sitting
Thomas helped her awkwardly.
“What are you doing here?”
“I want to talk, Yuri.” Thomas said earnestly.
They walked along the pretty hedges of the hospital garden.
“So…” They said in unison.
“You first.” Yuri said.
“No, you’re a girl.” Thomas replied politely.
“Have you been with me the whole time?” Yuri asked.
Thomas nodded and she sighed.
“You didn’t have to.”
“Still think I wrecked your photos?” Thomas asked
The girl didn’t reply for a long time.
“I guess not. I was so stunned the moment Emily told me
it was your quill. And it hurt so much. I guess I blew up at you.”
“It’s still true; you can’t live in a shadow
forever.” The boy began cautiously.
“And what would you know?” Yuri said coldly.
“I don’t, but it doesn’t seem right.”
Thomas said defiantly.
“And why do you even care?” Yuri snapped, flaring
“Because I care about you!” Thomas blurted out, stunned
at his own daringness.
Before he knew what he was doing, he threw his arms around Yuri.
“I… I love you.”

Yuri stood still in Thomas’s embrace, stunned.
Thomas loves her? Of all the girls who liked him,
he loved her? He was just like Simon. So sincere.
So serious. Tears stung her eyes. Not tears of anger
or sadness, but somehow tears of surprise and joy.
Her arms lingered uncertainly around his waist. She
thought she would never love again, but now, she realized
she was in love with Thomas. And she only just realizes
that now. Yuri tightened her arms around Thomas and
so did he, more confidently this time. They hugged
for a long time, each admiring the other’s daringness.
They were both stung by happiness and relieved that
they have confessed their feelings for each other.
Finally they broke apart. Yuri confessed she was tired and her
twisted back was beginning to hurt and so they returned to the
ward. Thomas sat by Yuri with her in his arms.
“Thomas, do you know which my favourite poem
is?” Yuri whispered, her voice tired but happy.
“Tell me.” Thomas said soothingly.
“My mother read it to me when I was little.
My father had died, so she chanted this poem often.
It’s called” Love.”
“Love is a legend, love is a story.
Love is a feeling, an experience, and a memory.
It’s something I can’t see,
It’s something just for two.
Yet I feel so special,
When I’m with you.
Through storm and fire,
I feel the strong desire.
Down cliffs and rivers,
So we can be together,
Up mountains and hills,
Just me and you forever.”
Yuri stopped and leaned on Thomas’s shoulder.
“That’s lovely.” Thomas said.
“I feel the same way towards you.” He smiled.
Minutes passed and Yuri slowly fell asleep. Thomas laid her down
and gently kissed her on the forehead. He then left.

“Miss Yuri, you can leave today.” Dr.
Brown informed her.
“I’m fully recovered due to your careful
treatment. Thank you.” Yuri said, packing up
“You know, Mr. Vacur is a fine young man.”
Dr. Brown said suddenly.
Yuri looked up in surprise.
“Yes indeed he is.”
“Do you really think he can replace Mr. Simon’s
place in your heart?” the doctor stopped cleaning
and looked down at his hands.
“He will never be Simon, you know. My wife died,
and though I’ve met some fine young women, they
will never replace her. Are you really loving him
or just using him as a mere shadow of Simon? If you’re
just using him, you will hurt him more than you can
Yuri looked down too. Now that Dr. Brown mentioned
it, she wasn’t sure anymore if she wanted Thomas.
She didn’t want to hurt him and use him merely
because he looks like Simon. She can’t pretend
he is Simon because he’s not. That would be
too unfair for him. Yuri suddenly realized she was
still standing in the ward. She quickly bid the doctor
goodbye and left.
Yuri reached her dormitory thirty minutes later.
Emily stood there, glaring at her.
Emily slapped Yuri across the face.
“You filthy little hag, how dare you get involved
with Thomas?” the girl snapped, her face in
a frightful glare.
“I told you to stay away. He’s mine. You
just like him because he looks like that wretched
brother of yours, Simon! You have to break up! You’re
hurting Thomas rather than loving him!” she
glared at Yuri, hate blazing in her blue eyes.
Yuri stared intently at Emily, tears in her eyes.
They weren’t tears from the stinging pain but
from the fact that Emily was right.
“I can give him real love! How can you just
come in and break us apart? We were a fine couple
before you came in! You’re so unfair to me and
to him!” Emily glowered at Yuri and then stormed
out of the room.
“Students, as you all know,” Mr. Spiel’s
voice came through the loudspeaker.
“The annual music ball is to be held in one
week. The gym will not be available due to decorating
works. Please prepare.”
Thomas looked eagerly at Yuri. He had gone to the
last ball with Emily but this year, he was looking
forward to a real nice and romantic time with Yuri.
However, she wasn’t looking his way. Was she
avoiding his eyes?
After class, Thomas managed to catch up with Yuri.
“Yuri, let’s go to the ball together.”
He said, taking her hand.
“It’ll be great.”
She didn’t reply.
“Thomas, I… I don't think I’m going
to the ball.” Yuri stammered, to Thomas’s
“I’m a little ill this week. I think I’m
going to rest for a bit.” Yuri shook free of
Thomas and walked away with her head bowed.
A few minutes later Emily came up to Thomas to his dismay.
“Thomas,” she said sweetly.
“Since Yuri’s not going to the ball, are you willing
to go again with me?” she batted her eyebrows furiously
at him in a cute way.
Thomas stared after Yuri who was well out of sight already. He
then looked back at Emily who was looking anxiously at him. He
nodded. Emily’s beautiful face broke into a smile.
“It will be a success.”
She took his hand and gave it a gentle squeeze before leaving.
