There were only five days left before the sixty days is up. I visit her often to make her smile. However, I could tell that she is becoming weaker.
"Michael, I think its time for you to stop coming here."

Her father did not ban me from going to their house but he asked me not enter her room because she didn't want to see me. I was upset and I locked myself in my room for four days. Soon the sixtieth day of our contract arrived and I was crying in my room.
My dad came in and talked to me. The gap between my dad and I had vanished after his accident. He became a good father and I guess it’s because he realized that we only have each other in this world. I told him about what happened at Serene's place, how I felt about her and the whole story about how we met.
"Son," he said as he patted my back,
I rushed to her home after hearing what my dad said. It was raining but I didn't care. All I know was I needed to be by her side. It might have been the last day of our contract but I decided that I'll still visit her at her house until she gets better. I will also tell her how I feel.
When I arrived at her place, I saw the doctors running into her room. I ran after them but they did not allow me to enter her room so I waited patiently outside.
It was 11.30 p.m. when they told me that I could go in. I saw her lying on the bed sleeping. I also noticed that her condition has deteriorated. Her lips and face were pale and I knew she was suffering. I sat on the chair beside her bed and started crying.

"Mi-Michael?" Serene asked hesitantly.
There was a moment of silence. I didn't know what would be her response but it doesn't matter as I had told her how I felt. If she accepts me, I will stay by her side and if she rejects me, I will never give up until she loves me too. I made up my mind never to leave her again.
I noticed that she was crying. I hugged and kissed her on her forehead. I asked her the reason for her tears. She did not answer but hugged me back.
Does it mean that she loves me too?
I took her guitar and started playing her favorite song, "Your Guardian Angel". She smiled at me while I played the guitar. After the song, she told me that she hides her diary under her pillow. Could it be that she wants me to read it? I kissed her cheeks and watched her as she sleeps.
It was 4.00 a.m. when I woke up. She was still sleeping. I went to the kitchen to get a drink. I saw her father there.
"Serene…" Her father said.
What?! It can't be! He's kidding right?! I just confessed my feelings for her! It can't be true! I can't lose her!
I was having those thoughts as I couldn't accept what he said. I ran back to her room and took her diary from under her pillow. I didn’t want to read it without her permission but it’s the only way to confirm what her dad had said in the kitchen.
I opened her diary and started reading.
