Meanwhile, Yuri was back in her dormitory with
her cell phone held tightly in her hands. She dialled Simon’s
beach house number hesitantly.
Yuri waited for the four rings to pass before hearing Simon’s
voice, “Please leave a message.”
“Simon,” Yuri whispered into the receiver with her
voice choked with misery.
“I haven’t called you in a long time. How are you?
I am in love with the brother of your murderer. I can’t
control my emotions, Simon. You had always given me good advice.
Please help me.” Yuri paused so that her tears would not
She swallowed a lump in her throat and went on.
“Help me, Simon. I don’t know if I should love him
or not. Mother said a person who is deep in your heart is unforgettable.
That person was you but I’m not sure if Thomas has replaced
you or not. Please help me decide…”
Yuri’s voice trailed off as she broke down completely. She
felt burning pain in her muscles and it drained out her energy.
She squinted with pain as the telephone receiver fell out of her
hand and crashed to the ground. The power button hit the floor
and the phone shut off. Yuri slumped onto the floor and clutched
her chest, wincing in pain. She crawled to her bed and climbed

Yuri didn’t know how long she slept. However
it was school break and she didn’t have to worry
about school. When she woke up, the sun was shining
through the curtains. She still felt weak but didn’t
feel any pain. Yuri got up and dressed herself. She
was about to leave when there was a knock on her door.
Yuri opened it and found Thomas standing at the doorway.
“Oh, hello.” Yuri said quietly.
Thomas studied her.
“Yuri, you look terrible.” He said, concerned.
He reached out to touch her face but stopped.
“Uh… I just wanted to tell you that Mr. Spiel has
appointed me to study in France and… and…” he
stopped and looked down.
“And well… I just wanted to tell you that.”
He turned to walk away.
Yuri felt her heart break again. Thomas was going to leave her.
‘What should I do?’ She thought desperately.
He is going away right now, leaving me forever just like Simon.
Before Yuri could decide what to do, she ran up and hugged Thomas
around the waist. He stopped moving and stood still.
“Thomas, I love you!” Yuri whispered. Her tears fell
and she laid her head on the back of his shoulder. She tightened
her arms around him.
Thomas felt the prickling feeling at the corner of
his eye again. However, he didn’t let the tear
fall. He placed his hands on hers.
Thomas and Yuri walked along the sandy beach with
the waves crashing at their bare feet.
“I’m sorry, Yuri.” Thomas said after
a moment of silence.
“It’s ok... It’s not your fault.”
Yuri said quietly, shifting her feet.
“And plus, it’s already in the past. You’re
right; I can’t live in the past and the shadow
She felt a sudden gust of wind hit her insides and
closed her eyes and waited for it to go away.
“I’ll leave on the day after tomorrow.
My stuff is packed already.” Thomas said awkwardly.
Yuri took his hand.
“Thomas, when will you come back?” she
“In a year.” The boy replied.
Yuri thought about how long and painful that period of time would
be without him. Tell him not to go! He’ll listen. A part
of her brain was saying that. She opened her mouth but the other
half of her brain restrained her. No! If you want him to be happy,
think for him, think for his career. This is very important to
him, let him go. She suddenly felt weak and her stomach churned
with pain. Yuri put her hands over her stomach and she knelt down
while still holding Thomas’s hand. Her weight pulled him

“What’s wrong, Yuri?” he asked.
“I… I slipped and I fell.” Yuri
said before she could stop herself.
It was the lamest lie she had ever heard herself tell.
Thomas laughed and pulled her up.
“Good luck there, Thomas. I’ll wait for
you to return.” Yuri said, squeezing his hand.
He squeezed her hand in return to show his appreciation.
Yuri felt her stomach churn again and she flinched.
Thomas put his hand around her waist and she felt
better. Her vision was clearing.
“Thomas, it’s cold. I think I’ll
go rest now.” Yuri said.
“I’ll walk you to your dormitory.”
“How could you let him go?” Emily pointed
a finger at Yuri and screamed.
“I let him go because it was his wish.”
Yuri said sincerely and sat down on her bed.
“Yuri Kowan! How dare you say you give him true
love!” Emily shouted.
“If I were you, I would not leave him! If I
were you, I would always be at his side! If I were
“Emily, you’re only thinking about what
you want. How could you be so selfish?” Yuri
took a step toward Emily and asked.
“How could you say you truly love him? Have
you ever considered what he wants? You think about
what you want him to do! Not what he wants for himself!”
she stopped and glared back for once.
“There are many ways to love. You always think
that everything you do is for the best. However, it
doesn’t mean that your way is the best way.
And just because I don’t want him to leave doesn’t
mean I don’t truly love Thomas!” Emily
turned on her heels and stormed out.
“Thomas, please don’t go to France!”
She and Thomas were in an empty classroom.
“I’m your girlfriend, please don’t
leave me!” she hugged Thomas.
“Emily I’m sorry, but I have to go.”
“Then let’s get married and I’ll
go with you!” Emily went on as she tries to
stop Thomas from mentioning Yuri’s name.
“What are you talking about, Emily?”
“Why is that girl so much better than me?”
“If Yuri said this to you instead of me today,
would you say yes?”
“I’m not going to answer that question.”
“Because Yuri would never be so unreasonable!”
Emily burst into tears.
“Do you mean that loving you and not wanting
to loose you is being unreasonable? Fine, go to France!
I don’t care!” she ran out sobbing.
“Thomas, take care.” Yuri said.
They were at the airport terminal.
“Remember, I’ll wait for you.”
“Emily came to me yesterday and said loads of
nonsense. She didn’t want me to leave.”
Yuri forced a laugh.
“Well, I don’t want you to leave either.
But you’re coming back.”
They bided goodbye and Thomas turned toward the departing gate.
Yuri stood gazing after him. She didn’t want him to go.
She wanted to call him to come back. The pain that struck Yuri
got worse as she watched Thomas step into the terminal gateway.
‘Thomas, don’t go.’ she whispered in her heart
as tears started to flood her eyes.
Thomas, please don’t go, I need you. Yuri felt her vision
blacking out and she placed a hand on her head to steady herself.
Thomas, come back... Please don’t leave me. Come back.
However, the airplane had taken off. She watched the plane’s
wheels lift off the ground and Thomas was gone. Yuri felt tortured
by pain. She coughed and felt something on her hand. Yuri slowly
lifted her hand from her mouth. It was blood. She had coughed
