The reason I'm called Tree is because I'm good at painting trees. Over time, I started to use a tree on the right hand corner as a trademark for all my watercolor paintings. I dated five girls when I was in Pre-University. There's one girl whom I really love a lot. However, I never dared to woo her. She doesn't have a pretty face, a good figure or outstanding charm. She is just a very ordinary girl.
I like her. I really like her. I like her innocence. I like her frankness. I like her cuteness. I like her intelligence and her fragility. The reason why I did not woo her is because I felt somebody so ordinary like her is not a good match for me. I'm afraid that all the good feelings I have for her will vanish after we get together. I'm also afraid that the gossips that follow after we get together will hurt her. I felt that if she's meant to be my girl, she will be mine ultimately and I don't have to give up everything just for her. The last reason made her accompany me for three years. She watched me go after different girls as I made her heart cry for three years.

She bumped into us when I was kissing my second girlfriend. She was embarrassed but managed to smile and urged us to continue before running off. Her eyes were swollen like walnuts the next day. I pretended not to know what caused her tears but laughed at her for her swollen eyes for the whole day. She cried alone in the classroom after everyone left for home. She didn't notice me returning from soccer training to get something from the classroom. I watched her cry for an hour or so.
My fourth girlfriend didn't like her. They once got into a quarrel. Based on her character, I know she's not the type that will start the quarrel. However, I still sided with my girlfriend. I shouted at her and her eyes were filled with shock. I didn't care about her feelings and walked off with my girlfriend. In spite of the incident, she still continued laughing and joking with me like nothing has ever happened the next day. I know that she's very hurt but she didn't know that my heartache is as bad as hers.
I asked her out when I broke up with my fifth girlfriend. After going out for a day, I told her that I have something to tell her. Coincidentally, she told me that she has something to tell me too. I told her about my break up and she told me about her new boyfriend. I know her new boyfriend. He has been pursing her for a while. He is a very cute guy full of energy, lively and interesting. His pursuit has been the talk of the school.

I can't show her how much my heart aches but can only smile and congratulate her. When I reached home, the heartache was so strong that I couldn't tolerate it. It's like a heavy rock on my chest. I couldn't breathe. I wanted to shout but I couldn't. Tears rolled down my cheeks and I broke down and cried. At that point of time, I thought about the number of times I had seen her cry for the man that didn't acknowledge her presence.
During graduation, I read a sms in my hand phone. It was sent ten days ago when I broke down and cried. I haven't read it since then.
It says, "Leaf’s departure is because of Wind pursuit. Or because Tree didn't ask her to stay."
