“Yuri,” Dr. Brown informed Yuri who
was waiting outside the emergency room anxiously.
“The situation is grim. Thomas was shot severely in the
stomach and a whole part of his liver is ruined. The only way
to help him is for someone to transfer part of their liver to
“I’ll do it.” Yuri said instantly. Dr. Brown
“I was afraid you would say that. But you have to understand
that you have leukaemia and if you transfer your liver or part
of it to Thomas, it will shorten your life span.”
“Please, Dr. Brown… Please, I have to help him!”
Yuri begged. The doctor sighed.
“Well, alright. I see you truly love him.”
“Please don’t tell him I did it.” Yuri said.
The doctor looked astonished.
“But why would you not want him to know of your love for
him?” he asked.
Yuri looked away.
“I have hurt him enough. I don't want him to know that I
sacrificed part of me. He’ll regret and feel bad for the
rest of his life. Just say that you cured him, please.”
The doctor sighed for the third time.
“Well alright since you insist. Please come to the operation

The next day, Yuri’s operation to transfer
part of her liver to Thomas was successfully completed.
Thomas was still unconscious but Yuri was awake and
getting ready to leave.
“Thank you, Dr. Brown. Please don’t tell
Thomas. Take good care of him.” She said.
Just then the door opened and Thomas entered. His
face was pale and tired. Yuri gasped and hid herself
quickly in the closet in the doctor’s office.
“Thomas, what are you doing away from your bed?”
she heard Dr. Brown ask.
“I’m alright, Doctor. Thank you. I expect I will be
able to leave in a few days?” Thomas asked.
Yuri thought his voice sounded hoarser and more strained then
Suddenly Yuri felt pain rapidly streaming through her bones and
muscles. Her whole body felt immensely weak and rubbery. Her vision
was blacking out. Yuri fell with a loud thud as she couldn’t
control herself. Thomas turned as he was heading out for the door.
Yuri was saved by some quick thinking from Dr. Brown.
“Oh, damn it. It must be the books in my closet again. And
I just restacked them!” he said exasperatedly.
Thomas smiled wanly and left. Yuri began to cry. She wanted Thomas
to know she loved him, but she didn’t want to hurt him anymore.
The doctor helped her out and let Yuri cry.
“Hi mother. How are you?” Yuri said into the phone.
It was night back at the dormitory and she was calling her mother.
“I’m fine Yuri dear.” Susan Kowan’s voice
“I’m…“ Yuri considered telling her mother
about her situation, but decided against it.
“I’m alright, mother. Can I ask you if you could ever
forget father?” she asked quietly.
“No Yuri, I will not forget your father ever.” Mrs.
“I will not, and I cannot. Because once someone is deep
in your heart, you will never be able to forget him.”
Yuri felt tears roll down her cheek.
“Thanks, Mother.” She whispered.
“I’ll talk to Thomas then.” She added vaguely
before she knew what she was doing.
“Thomas who?” Susan Kowan suddenly demanded.
“Him?” cried Mrs. Kowan to Yuri’s great surprise.
“You have to break up. You cannot be with him.”
“Why? Do you know him, mother?”
“N-No. Well yes, Yuri. I’ll fax an article to you
right now and then you’ll understand.”
They chatted for a while longer before Yuri hung up. She watched
the fax machine as an article was printed out. She read it, and

December 28th, 2001
Mr. Leon Spiel came to Sacramento for some meetings
he had to attend in the name of his father, Mr. Aaron
Spiel. It was then that he lost his young life. Late
in the night of December 14th, his car collided with
that of Simon Kowan’s and he was sent directly
to the hospital. Simon Kowan was killed instantly
after the crash. Leon had received a severe bump in
the head and a variety of cuts but was in no big danger.
He was sent back to London, England two days later,
where he lived with his father and adopted stepbrother,
Thomas Vacur. However, four days later, it was said
he developed a tumour from a bump in his head and
he died a week later.
Yuri looked up, stunned. So it was Thomas’s
brother who had killed Simon. Leon had killed Simon.
Thomas was as good as the murderer of her brother.
Thomas bumped headlong into Yuri after music class
the next day. She looked up at him firmly.
“Yuri, let’s not break up.” Thomas,
said, grabbing her arm.
She looked up at him and gave him a look. He wasn’t
quite sure what it meant.
“I’m sorry, Thomas. We were never meant
to be together. We can never be together either.”
She swung free of him and walked away. As she did,
a piece of white fax fell out from her bag. Thomas
picked it up and read it. As he did, his eyes widened
in horror and he understood. His brother had killed
Simon, the person Yuri had loved the most in her life.
“Father, how did Leon die?” Thomas asked Aaron Spiel.
The man stopped in his tracks and looked at Thomas in surprise.
“Why do you ask?” he asked sharply.
“Tell me!” Thomas exclaimed.
“Don’t you know he died of cancer?” Aaron Spiel
“He killed Simon Kowan, Yuri’s brother, and then developed
tumour from the crash, right?” Thomas cried.
His father froze.
“How did you find out?”
Thomas shoved the fax into his father’s face. The man read
it and sighed.
“I knew how much you love Yuri and I didn’t want you
to know.” Mr. Spiel said.
“How did things become this way?” Thomas yelled.
“Why is love so unfair? Now she will hate me forever. I
am the brother of Simon’s murderer!”
