“This is not something to understand, but it something to prove.

Do you know what is it?

It’s called Love.”

 

It’s not something to understand because  it can’t be explain by a mere word & complicate. Only can be prove yet there are always challenge for it, one of them, make your partner understand what you try to show them.

May I ask you something?

When did you show your love? Or for whom is it those love? The answer is not always the same, since every perspective are different.

 

Love is not only coming from those who you think is the one for you, it can be also from your family & your best friends.

 

Even if you show your love in Valentine’s Day, Don’t Stop There, show your love & smile everyday.

 

But it different story when you can’t even tell the difference between love & admirable feeling. Between love as a friend or love as opposite gender, is it really love or just misunderstanding with complicate feeling that can’t be describe or even to explain.

 

How she could explain that to herself, when she never thought about it before. It is embarrassing to ask her sister or even ask her crush for what happening. Pretty obviously that we’re talking about Echa or rather known as Enchi The Bunny.

 

And talking about her crush, it been over a month since the last time they talk to each other, to be precise it just after watching the Big Christmas Tree together. Even she could see him in front of The School Gate, where the Student Council correcting the uniform from each student. But it’s almost like there is no chance at all to talk to him.

 

Inside Class 2-C, Lunchtime.

*Sigh*

As Echa sighing & laying her head on her desk, one of her friend coming at her,

“Hai,,hai,,” – waving to Echa that look trouble.

“Oh Hi, Terra.” – she respond with low voice.

Then she ask,

“What is with that respond? And what is it this time?” – with smile she sit on empty seat in front of Echa.

As Echa seem don’t understand with her tone,

“What do you mean Terra?” – confused

“Oh come on, I’m talking about that boy, your crush.”

Hearing that Echa got shock & panic,

“Wach, Terrrraaaa,,, SSSShhhhh,, Not so loud! It embarrassing you know.” – she said with blushing a steam are coming out from her head.

“Hhmm? Why? You still use your uniform, what are you embarrassed about?”

*Huff*

(Sometime I really can’t understand how she can joking like that.) – Echa thought.

 

For you to know, Terra is a good friend of Echa, since she is a Class Representative from Class 2-C, you can say that she is quite reliable. Though she is also in category that being called tomboy, hidden tittle given by the boy within the classroom. She got those kind of category since she always protect the weak & act like a boy, but most of the time she protect only the girls. And back to normal after the problem is solved.

 

As Terra don’t get any respond from Echa, she throw another question at her,

“So, is there any progress with him?” – with a straight face.

Surprised with the question that she got panic,

“Progress? What progress, Terra?”

“Come on, you know what I’m talking about. You already talking about him over a month, right? And I got tired hearing you always talking about him, that’s why I ask you ‘is there any progress with him?’”

With blushing & whisper voice she answer Terra question,

“N,,No. There is no progress at all.”

“You must be kidding me.” – she said with cold-sweat.

“No I’m not, but for started I’m not sure if this is exactly what you told me. So I feel awkward to even greeting him.”

“So, if you said it’s not exactly what I thinking is, what is it then?”

“I don’t know.”

With bored eyes,

“Picture the following.”

“Huh?”

Without waiting her respond, she said,

“You and him alone in a classroom.”

*Blush*,

“Arg..” – Echa blushing,

“You and him alone at the movies.”

As Echa face getting more red & she try to look at another way,

“Arghhmmm,,”

“You and him alone on an uninhabited island.”

Echa start to panic,

“Please, stop it Terra. If you continue any further I’m afraid my heart will explode.” – she blushing.

“That’s what I have been trying to say to you, that kind of reaction is called ‘Love’. You have been fall in Love with him.” – trying to explain.

“But,,”

“Just greet him like you usually do, you meet him every morning, right? And he also come to your club to help your club, right?”

*Little bit down*,

“Hhhmmm, Yes I meet him every morning but, my heart beating so fast that my mouth can’t say a single word. And about that, President Sheila said he got busier with Student Council stuff & he also have some project in his hand. So, basically he have been absent since then.”

“Okey, but you still meet him every morning, right? Just come at him, and greet him like you greet your lover.” – said Terra little bit annoy, losing her patience.

“I told you already, it’s not that easy to just greeting him suddenly, that way will created another misunderstand, that is for sure.” – said Echa Panic.

 

As Echa trying to stop Terra from giving her funny idea that’s bad for her heart, Terra remember something,

“Echa, today is February 5th, right?”

Casually answer,

“Yes.”

“Then, how about giving him a Chocolate on Valentine’s Day?”

As Echa shock with her idea, she shouting at her,

“Heeehhhhhh?!?!?!”

Hearing her shouting, she closed her ears with both of her hand,

“Ow,,ow,,ow,, You don’t need to shouting like that Echa. In that case, we can ask Sheena whether he like chocolate or not. Since she is also member of Student Council.” – after she said that, she immediately walk to Sheena.

“Wait, Terra,,,,” – Surprise hearing her idea, she try to stop her.

But before she could stop Terra, Terra already call for Sheena that preparing the paper before she going to the Student Council Room,

“Sheena, Sheena, did you listening to our conversation?” – ask Terra casually.

“Yeah, you guys talking pretty loud. It difficult for me to ignored your voice.” – said her with little bit annoyed while ignored us.

 

Sheena is the Secretary of Student Council. With her long sides hair & her dark green eyes, she look so elegant & beautiful. But behind those beauty, it come a cold presence that no one dare to approach her when she is in that state. Even though she is not a class representative like Terra, she have more authority in the class. The reason is because many of them admired her & in the same time, they scared, whenever she have a bad mood. This is also why Terra hated her & the real reason why Echa try to stop Terra.

 

*Giggle*,

“Come on, don’t be so cold like that. Hey, do you mind if I ask you something about your Vice-President?”

As Echa still try to stop Terra, she standing behind her back, trying to pulling her,

“Terra, stop it. It’s embarrassing.” – whisper Echa with blushing.

“Ssshhh,, be quiet will you.” – Terra said to Echa without feeling guilt.

*Little bit annoy*,

(Aarrggg,, Don’t act like a class representative in this situation, though it is what you are but my heart is on the stage here.) – Echa thought while blushing.

As Sheena looking at them with curious eyes, she ask,

“About what?”

“About whether he like chocolate or not?” – answer Terra casually.

But suddenly the way Sheena look at them turn into a cold & scary look,

“Forget what I said, don’t make any chocolate for him or even try to give him directly. Now if you excuse me.” – as she said that, she turn around & walk away.

Confused with her answer Echa & Terra looking at each other,

“Eh???”

And out of curiosity Echa ask her,

“Wait, Sheena. What do you mean by that?”

 

But Sheena not listening to any of her words and just walk away like that. With Terra that annoyed with her attitude she said,

“Hemd, yeah just go away! who need your help anyway!!” – she shout,

“Echa you don’t need to bother about her, I forgot that there is a rumor about both of them are dating. Maybe she want to give him something by herself, that’s why she is so pissed, I guess she being dumped by him. That sound more reasonable for her temper.” – Explain Terra with annoyed eyes.

*Confused*,

“Both of them? What are you talking about Terra?”

“Oh that, Panda & Sheena of course, what else?” – answer her casually.

*Surprised*,

“Eh? Y-You mean she is his ex-girlfriend?”

“Yeah, that’s why she warn us that way. Aaarrggg, it annoying to talk about her, I never get along with her anyway. Now I get hungry, let’s go to Cafeteria, Echa.” – she said while get more annoyed.

“(But you are the one who try to talk to her.) O-Okey.” – after she said that, she look at the way Sheena walk to & think,

(Why I have a feeling that was more than a warning.)

With Terra that already going ahead, she turn to Echa & ask,

“Echa you coming? If you still thinking about the Valentine’s Day, don’t worry I will help you, I hear home-made chocolate are more romantic than obligatory chocolate. Though I’m not confidence with my cooking skill either.” – giggle.

“That make me worried, but thanks Terra.” – as she said that she turn around & walk following Terra.

“Hahaha, no problem. that’s what it called friendship, right.” – She said with smile to Echa.

 

As both Echa & Terra going to the Cafeteria, back to Sheena that walk to the Student Council Room,

(If you insisted to give him chocolate, don’t say that I did not warn you.) – she thought with a bit down expression.

 

Meanwhile, inside the Student Council Room.

Angela the President of Student Council is sleeping. As she laying her head on the desk, with her long layered hair as black raven silk that covering her, she let Panda do all the paperwork,

*Yawn*,

“Hhmm,,Pao, did you finished yet?” – she ask as she awake with her head still laying down on the desk.

*Ignored*,

*Tap, Tap.* – Panda answered her by ‘Tapping’ his pen twice to the table that mean yes.

“Why you taking so long to finish that many paperwork.” – ask her with bored eyes.

*Ignored*,

“……” – he continue his work.

“Pao, I’m bored. Tell me a joke, that’s an order.” – said her with bored eyes.

As Panda Notepad are in front of him, he write something,

[Sorry. Still busy. Order are invalid. Try again next month.] – he give the notepad to her.

“Haha, nice try you Little Panda. I’m not a computer.” – say her with dry laugh.

As Panda ignored her childish side, he stay quiet & do his work,

[……]

“Seem I can’t disturb you for one bit, huh? You are too serious on this.” – she said with lazing around.

As Panda turn away looking at Angela,

<Most of this paperwork is your job not mine.> – said Panda with sign language.

“Your face, & your sign are not telling the same thing. Anyway I’m bored, cheer me!” – she said while leaf up her head from the desk,

“Oh! What do we have here?” – she said while she notice something out from Panda bag & taking it.

*Ignored*,

“……” – as Panda ignored her, he continue his work.

“Oh, PSP. I thought bringing game console in the school is forbidden? Did you break your own rule, Little Vice-President,,” – *Giggle*

*Ignored*,

“……”

“Hey, while you still busy with those paper can I play this?” – ask her while she taking his PSP out of his bag.

*Tap.*  – Panda answered by ‘Tapping’ his pen once that mean yes,

(As long as you can be a little quiet.) – he thought.

“Hhmmm, what is this? Elysium Legends? Is this a failure project?” – she ask while she play.

*Tap, Tap.* – answer Panda by ‘Tapping’ his pen, & continue his work.

“Then, you must have a reason to bring this to the school, even though it against the rule.” – she said trying to guess.

*Tap.* – he answered by ‘Tapping’ his pen.

“So, what is this game? Fighting? Adventure? Sci-fi? Well I hope this is RPG game.”

<It’s RPG game.> – Panda said with sign language using his right hand.

“Oh, really?” – she said with smile,

“But wait, why you only created 9 avatar only in this game?” – she complain.

<Prototype.> – Panda said with sign language.

“Arrgg,, Okey, I will test them then. You don’t mind, do you?” – she ask.

*Tap.* – Panda answered by ‘Tapping’ his pen.

 

As Panda continue his paperwork & Angela who continue playing game, they keep the conversation in strange way. While Angela keep talking about the game, Panda only answered her by ‘Tapping’ his pen, between ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. Since Angela is Panda childhood & for her their conversation is more or less like a game that fun being played only for her.

Few minute later, someone coming to Student Council Room,

*Door Open*,

“I’m sorry, I’m late.” – a girl with many book & paperwork coming into the room.

“Katherine, you are late.” – Angela said while looking at her.

“I did already said sorry, right?” – she said while putting all book & paperwork on the table,

*Huft*,

“I’m beat.” – Katherine said with taking sit & look little bit tired.

“If you are already beaten up while you just coming here, do you want me to beaten you up?” – ask Angela with bored eyes & scary smile.

“Arg, No. Thanks.” – Katherine answered with scared,

“Hhmmm,,” – she turn around look at Panda direction.

<Welcome.> – Panda said with sign language & smile.

*Blush*,

“Ach, yeah. Thanks.” – Katherine answered with little blush.

“So, why you are late? And why that paperwork with you? That supposed to be Sheena part, right?” – Angela ask while playing game.

“I’m sorry, but my brother currently sick, & since my mother is a nurse, I thought it would be easy. But actually not, & because his condition getting worse he is now being nurse in the hospital.” – Katherine said trying to explain.

“Yeah, I know. Your homeroom teacher said that today morning.” – respond Angela casually.

*Cold sweat*,

“Arg, then why you ask?” – little bit annoyed.

*Giggle*,

“To know whether you are lying or not.” – she answered with smile,

“And how about the second question? Why Sheena paperwork with you?”

“Oh this, I got this from Sheena herself. I met her on the way here but she got order from the teacher to go to the first year building, & she ended up giving her paperwork to me.” – explain Katherine.

“Hhmmm, is that so.” – said Angela while playing game & sound like she don’t care.

“Hahaha, yeah. But, by the way Angela, where is your paperwork?” – she ask while she just realized that Angela only playing game.

“Little Pao doing it for me.” – she answered casually with focus on games.

*Cold Sweat*,

“Arg, don’t you think you supposed to be doing your own paperwork, Angela?”

“Hhhmm, Maybe. But I’m too lazy to do that & too bored to doing any paperwork. So, I leave everything to my Vice-President.” – *Giggle*,

“Anyway, he look like he doesn’t mind about it, right Little Panda?”

*Tap, tap.* – Panda responded with ‘Tapping’ his pen.

As Katherine notice what Panda doing she said,

“Eee, isn’t that mean he do mind about that?” – trying to remember what Panda mean.

“Well, leave him. He will finish all the paperwork in another 20 minute anyway. And it all his fault anyway.” – she said.

“What do you mean?” – Katherine ask.

“He is smart & a good  guy, but the moment I turn away, he helping a club activity without my permission. Knowing his project still much to do & not to mention his position in Student Council. So I think something like this is a piece of cake for him.” – Angela answered with little bit annoyed & wreak her emotion to the game.

*Giggle*,

“Oh I know what mean, are you jealous that you can’t keep him for yourself, Princess?” – ask Katherine trying to tease Angela a bit.

*Pissed*,

“I do. Have problem with that?” – Answered Angela glaring at Katherine.

*Cold Sweat*,

“Hehehe, I’m sorry for trying to teasing you.” – she said little bit scared,

(Woah the way she glaring at me is scary.) – she thought.

 

As Katherine having conversation while doing her paperwork perfectly with Angela who is still playing game, Panda trying hard to focus & ignored those two.

 

20 minute later,

*Tap, Tap.* – Panda trying to call Katherine by ‘Tapping’ his pen.

“Hhmmm, yes?” – she noticed.

<I’m finish with my paperwork, give me half of yours, I will help.> – Panda said with sign language .

“Real,,,”

*Glared*, but before Katherine finish her words, Angela cut her word & glaring at Katherine again,

“You don’t have to, I will help. You need to finish your project, right?” – said Angela little bit serious,

“Here your PSP, I’m lost many time in that dungeon, it really difficult game you created there. But, I’m having fun. That’s the important part, right?” – she said looking at Panda.

<You sure?>

“Yeah, pretty sure.”

<Then I will take my leave.> – he said with sign language while putting his PSP in the bag.

“Hey, before you leave, can I ask you something?” – she ask with different tone.

<What is it?> – Panda answer with a calm expression.

“Where are you going last Christmas?” – looking at him with curiosity.

As Panda looking at Angela, he throw another question,

<Just how many time you will ask me about that & answering you with the same answer every single time until you satisfied.>

“Come on, don’t be stingy.” – she sullen.

*Sigh*,

<It already 341 time you asked about it. Well whatever, I’m going with Enchi to watch Big Christmas Tree.>

As she change the way she looked at Panda,

“Did you guys dating?”

<No. She just want to return the favor & I just want to repay her phone, since her phone are broken because of me.> – answered Panda casually with sign language.

With ominous aura surrounded her, she say,

“I hope you present on Valentine’s Day, Little Panda.”

<It’s not that I’ll be absent on that day.> – he responded.

“This will be interesting.” – She said with malicious smile.

 

Meanwhile Katherine that being ignored as a third person between them, doesn’t have any chance to talk at all. Where actually she enjoy the conversation between both of them & having little bit fun looking at how Angela jealous. As for Panda, with his personality, he is too good to not knowing that she have the plan for him, to be played with.

 

Everyone in Class 2-A know, that Angela also had a feeling for him. Since she always so strict & devilish to whoever break the rule but so childish & friendly with Panda. Even for Sheena, her childhood friend, can’t do a thing but smile at how she behaves. Yet she always sad, by the fact that Angela never holding back to show her ugly side to someone she doesn’t like. Whoever it is, stepping back from them are merely a mercy for Angela, The President of Student Council.

 

As the days are passing by, Valentine’s Day has arrived.

Lunch Time, In front of Class 2-A, are become crowded place, the reason for this ruckus is no other than there are so many girls that trying to get in to Class 2-A. But they are being held by 4 boys which is not letting them to go in. Their purpose actually not far from the event on that day, the only problem is the person who they try to give the chocolate, is only one person. It’s for Panda.

 

Eventually one of the boy that holding the door shouting,

“Aaarrggg, girls please, calm yourself,,” – with trying to holding them to get in, he shouting,

“Meg, are you done yet?”

Since it crowded she respond with shouting too,

“Not yet! And can you please make them quite? I can’t concentrate here.” – as she continued where she leave before,

“Okey, now how I can solve this question again, Panda?” – ask her with pointed her finger to the question in the math book.

With Casually he using sign language,

<Page 93, inside the yellow box there’s a formula, you can use them as the second formula and combined with X to find Y. Then you need to,,>

As Panda try to explain math to Meg, she interrupt him,

“Wait, wait, wait, Panda. If you excuse me.” – she turn slowly & shouting,

“can you guys please shut up!” – she get annoyed by the crowd that trying to get in.

Since, one of the boy that holding the door is Ursiblue, he try to confront them with sweat on his head,

“Ladies, you hear that, right? Our class have study session now, so can you little bit quite.”

“No, Let me pass, I want to give my chocolate to Panda! Let me Pass!” – said one after another with the same line.

Realize that no one is listening to him, he look at Meg with a depress expression,

“No one care.”

She got annoyed,

“Yeah, maybe that’s because you are too soft!!!”

 

Meanwhile, two girl are standing not so far from Class 2-A. As Terra shock seeing the crowd in front of Class 2-A,

“The Heck! Are you sure about this Echa? Where you are going to is a war zone, I mean look at those girls, it definitely a war zone.”

As Echa carry a small  box covering with pink fabrics & a nice red ribbon she said,

“Y,,yes, I will give this chocolate to him.”

Little bit worry,

“On the first place, why you don’t give that chocolate to him in the drama club? You don’t need to pass those war zone thing, you know.”

“Maybe you are right, but he leave a note on his locker yesterday that saying, [Sorry for the disturbing, I’ll leave everything to you.] At first nobody know what he mean, only President Sheila do. But then today morning there are so many chocolate box & bouquet of flower in front of Drama Club, it was mean for him. Now everybody know what he mean.” – Echa trying to explain.

*Surprised*,

“Heh? What he is? Is he a super stars or what?”

“Yes, he is, or rather it’s not only him, anyone who play the main role or get a character to play, they all have a fans now even from outside of the school.” – answer Echa casually.

“Wow. Wait, don’t tell me you also got many chocolate from your fans too?”

“Yes, but I share the chocolate with the rest of the member, since I can’t finish it alone, do you want some?” – ask Echa casually.

*Cold Sweat*,

“Ack, No Thanks. Now let’s go there, I’ll open the way for you.”

“Thanks, Terra.” – she said with smile.

 

But before Echa & Terra getting close to the crowd, a loud voice can be heard from the inside of Class 2-A,

“Hey look! I saw Panda running to the backyards!!!”

 

Hearing that, all girls respond,

“Heh, really?” – then one girl trying to get out from the crowd & start to run with shouting,

“I will be the first who give Panda the chocolate.” – following by,

“Don’t even think about that!” – then the other said,

“I won’t let you to do that!” – said another girl, then they start chasing the girl who running first one after another until the door is free to pass.

 

After all girls are gone, the boys who holding the door with a heavy breathing & their annoyed eyes directed to Meg, as she respond,

“What?”

*Ursiblue annoyed*,

“Why you don’t do that from the first place?”

“Don’t blame me, you guys look almost dead holding them anyway. Thanks would be good, and ,,,oh!” – just before she could finish her word, she saw Echa coming in into their class.

As she nervous because of everybody inside the class looking at her,

“Em, Excuse me.” – say Echa with a low tone.

“I’m sorry but we are having,,” – before Meg finish her word, Panda pat her back then with a sign language,

<It’s Okey.>

With worried eyes,

“Are you sure about this?” – ask Meg.

<Yeah. Meg, look at her finger. She have been trying hard. It would be rude to decline a home-made, right?> – said Panda to Meg using different sign language that he use in Drama Club.

“Just don’t push yourself.” – said Meg warn him.

With Echa getting close to Panda,

“I’m sorry, did I disturb your study session?”

“Nah, don’t worry about that,, Hhhmmm,, Enchi, right?” – said Meg trying to remember Echa name.

“Agh, my name is Echa, but I’m fine either way.” – said Echa little bit embarrassed.

“Okey. So, why are you here again?” – ask Meg casually.

“I,,I,,I’m here to give the chocolate. T-To Panda.” – said Echa embarrassed.

“Alone?”

“Ah no, I’m with my friend. But she said she want to make sure that the other girls keep distracted.”

*Cold Sweat*,

“Yeah, I guess that would be the best move. Good job Enchi friend.” – said Meg with cold sweat.

As Panda take a look at Echa finger that full of band aid,

<Enchi, What happen to your finger?> – ask Panda casually.

“Th,,this? Ah don’t worry, this is nothing. I just careless & accidently touch a hot pan 2 days ago.” – explain Echa with little bit panic & think,

(Though, I actually did that because I overthinking about the chocolate, but it’s impossible for me to say that, am I.) – as she trying to give the chocolate to him, but she blushing beforehand,

“P-Please, accept my chocolate.” – said Echa while giving him the chocolate.

<Thanks.> – with smile Panda accept her chocolate.

 

*Stare….*

As Panda notice that Echa have been staring at him,

<What is it?>

“Please, try it.” – she shy,

“I’m not sure that will be good, but I try my best to make it.” – she said.

<Okey, I will try one.> – after he said that with his sign language, he take one piece of chocolate from the box & put it in his mouth,

<It was delicious.> – he said with his sign language & smile.

As Ursiblue suddenly show up from Panda back,

“Really? Then I guess I will take one.” – as he stealing one chocolate from Panda, he suddenly make a funny face afterward,

“Uurrgghh, it salty. Panda, are you sure this chocolate is delicious or you just can’t,,”

“Blue!!!” – Just before Ursiblue finish his word, everybody shouting on him & startled Echa.

“Oops..” – as he realized what he have been trying to say,

“Pao, I didn’t mean to,,”

<It’s okey, Blue.>

As Echa confused & doesn’t understand why they are shouting on Ursiblue in the same time or even why he try to apologize to Panda, then she ask,

“What’s going? Wha,,”

 

But before she could throw another question to everyone, she look at Panda face, Panda expression, she remember that look. That expression is what she saw when they are going to the Aquarium Park.

 

As Echa worried over Panda, she try to ask him,

“Panda, are you alrig,,”

Before she could finish her word again,

“Pao, what are you doing here! There are so many worksheets in Student Council Room, I need your help.” – Sheena is calling Panda from outside the class.

With his expression still the same, he answer with sign language,

<I’m coming.> – as he passing everyone like it was nothing happen, class become awkward for a moment.

“Uummm,, What is going on?” – ask Echa that still confused & trying to break the awkward.

“Okey everyone, who is hungry? It lunchtime, don’t waste your time,, let’s go to cafeteria!” – shout Ursiblue trying to distract & dodge the question.

“Yeah good idea.” – said one of them,

“I’m coming with you buddy.” – respond the other student.

“Hei wait, how about my math problem?” – ask Meg panic.

“Don’t worry I already have a note from what Panda explain.” – said the girl beside Meg.

“Thanks, then let’s go.” – said Meg, and following her, everybody else leave the classroom.

 

As everything happen so fast, without Echa realizing she have been left alone in the classroom. With nothing but a question, ‘What is going on here?’

 

Back to Panda that walk alongside with Sheena,

“Are you alright?” – ask Sheena worried.

*Cough, cough*

<Yeah.> – answer Panda while he covering his mouth with handkerchief.

As Sheena take a look at Panda handkerchief, she see a blood,

“You should not push yourself, Pao. Do you want spew that chocolate?”

<No, thanks.>

*Huff*

“You are really persistent, huh? As your cousin I’m worried, you know. Here, take this.” – said Sheena give a mineral water to Panda.

<Thanks.>

“It was Angela who ask me to buy the drink for you & give it to you. I don’t know what is her reason, until I saw what happen there.” – explain Sheena.

<Why I’m not surprised hear that.> – said Panda with his expression still down.

“Sorry.”

<It’s not your fault.>

“Thanks for trying to cheering me, but it doesn’t change the fact that I let thing happen. Sometime I don’t understand her as her friend, why she played you around yet she care to you.” – Sheena confused.

<That’s one thing that I agreed with you.>

 

Along their way, they continue their conversation as they continue their step. Many  student misunderstanding & think that Sheena is Panda ex-girlfriend which is still chasing after him, though actually she just like Wolfrik, care to Panda like a real relative. She is Wolfrik cousin, and she seeing Panda like a big brother, she is the second daughter of famous restaurant, the place where Wolfrik & Panda have part-time job.

 

Maybe it is true that she is Angela childhood or even the longest friend that can stand with her behavior. She do can’t understand her as a friend but, she really do understand what exactly she is. Rather than hated & sarcastic the person who have the same feeling like her to Panda, she chose to played them so that they fall into despair & tear them apart slowly. And that’s is how ugly her ugly side.

When you show your love

February 5, 2018, When did you show Your Love (Bunny 7).jpg

“May I ask you something?

When did you show your love? Or for whom is it those love?

The answer is not always the same, since every perspective are different.

Love is not only coming from those who you think is the one for you, it can be also from your family & your best friends.”

 

It’s happen all the time, whether you realized it or not. But the moment you fell deeply in love & seeing them as the one for you, at that moment you forgot who support you all the time, & who always being there whenever you had a hard time. Sacrificing one best friend for the person who can’t love you back the way you love them are tragically stupid.

Bunny Diary Chapter 06; Lion & Wolf

Bunny Diary Chapter 6; Lion & Wolf.jpg

Imagine that the whole years are just like a book, with 365 page, 12 chapter & 2.628.000 words each chapter, what do you think? Every end of the years we close one book and open the new one in every beginning of the years.

 

Don’t you think it’s funny? To think the last thing you see in the last years was also the first think you see in the new year’s.

 

What is your resolves in this year?

 

It been the same question over and over again, each years that passing by whether you like it or hate it. Either you wasting your time to whining & give up or you keep trying each years until eventually you reach your dream. It all your choice.

 

The question is only, whether you willing to do it or not.

 

Let’s go back to December 24th, 2004, 09:00 morning, Panda room.

*Yawn*

As the light shine on the person in bed from the windows, he turn himself to the right side of his bed with his eyes still closed while saying,

“Good Morning, Brother.”

 

Few minute later.

Since there is no answer from his little brother, as he open his eyes to looking why he don’t get the answer, he see the bed from the other side of the wall is tidy,

“Brother!!!” – he said surprised that his brother not in his bed, he get up & accidently shouting.

Then a voice from a mature women can be hear from the outside of the room,

“Wolfy, if you already wake up, get yourself down.” – she shouting from the first floor.

“Yes Mom.” – he answered as he standing beside his bed because how shock he is, he found a notepad on Panda pillow that was supposed to mean for him.

[I’m going out, sorry I switch off the alarm clock.] – what is writing on the notepad.

With a expressionless eyes,

“Oouu, and thanks to you I’m wake up late, Brother.”

 

Little Note about Wolf-Boy & Panda, in every morning.

Every single morning, or rather every single time when Wolfrik say ‘Good Morning’ to Panda, he always throw the alarm Clock to Wolfrik face. Or at least something to throw at him, it doesn’t matter what it is. The reason is, Wolfrik will start scream, shout, or even repeat what he said when Panda do not respond Plus (+), he always waking Panda 2 hours before the time that already being set on the alarm clock.

 

As Wolfrik going out from his room, he walk to the direction of stairs. Panda room & his room are a single Roof Room with two bed that separate by the small table in the middle.

 

Hear the Wolfrik step going down from the third floor his Mother shout again,

“Wolfy, you better go shower. You not shower for 3 days, I will prepare breakfast for you.”

*Yawn*,

“Thanks Mom.” – he answered with little sleepy.

 

But the moment he step his foot on the first floor, the bell door ringing,

*Ding-Dong, The Bell Door Ringing.*

“Oh there is a guest coming,,,”

Before she finish her word,

“Don’t worry Mom, I got this.” – he said as he going to the door.

“Thanks, Dear.”

As he opening the door,

“No probl…..Ach,,you?? Why you are here?” – as Wolfrik surprised for the second time, he couldn’t finish his words properly and the reason he got so surprised is because the guest that coming is his girlfriend.

“Hey, is that the first think you saying to your girlfriend early in the morning??” – she said little bit annoy by Wolfrik reaction.

“S-Sorry Sheila, please come in, it must be cold outside.” – he letting her going in with cold sweat.

“Despite how rude your attitude toward me, you still care, huh?” – she said while going inside.

“What are you, saying something like that, An Old Lady?” – he said.

“Thanks you.” – she smile.

“Ah, You are welcome.” – he said with cold sweat.

 

The way she respond was not something to be surprised by Wolfrik that already get used to it. Since it’s Sheila principle to keep smile & say ‘Thanks you’ to whoever try to bully, rude or even mocking to her. But kindness or calmness is not the thing here, she always saying stuff like,

*Giggle*,

“Smile & be Happy in front of your enemy, it will burn them anyway.”

 

Laugh about something like that is not normal, but what to do, what she was saying is just right. Anger & Sadness just make your enemy happy, can’t blame the reality about it now.

 

As she chat with him, Wolfrik Mother that still in the kitchen ask,

“Wolfy, who is coming?” – she ask shouting.

But before Wolfrik could answer, Sheila already did,

“Aunty, it’s me. Sheila.” – as she try to going to the living room.

Two small children peeking from the living room door, as soon as they see Sheila going to their direction they shout,

“Wach! Everyone Run, Sheila The Lion is coming! The Lion is coming!” – they run & shout to warn the other.

*Giggle*,

“Hehe, you think you can run from me? I’m coming for you, Roar.” – she said while chasing the kids.

With bored eyes he watching how his girlfriend behavior,

“Seriously, why you are even here, Sheila.”

“Oh welcome, Shelly.” – greeting Wolfrik Mother to Sheila.

“Thanks Aunty.” – as she stop chasing the kids.

By the time Wolfrik going to the living room, 3 children are running to him,

“Good Morning, Wolfy Brother.” – they said together.

“Ah yes, Good morning for you too. Hhhmmm? 1, 2, 3,, only 3? Mom, where is everyone?” – Wolfrik ask by the time he realized that usually everyone will running toward him every morning.

With cooking,

“Don’t worry, your Father & Shelly Father are winning a free ticket to the Amusement Park, & right now they are having fun with them.” – his Mother explain.

“I’m more worried when those two old man are together. In the end of conversation is always talking about married.” –  he responded with cold sweat.

*Giggle*,

“Oh don’t worry, even so you don’t hate it right?” – Sheila said with smile at him.

“If you try to make fun of me, you already win the contest.” – he said little annoy.

“Hehehe, you are welcome, Darling.” – she said with smile.

“But, why Eric, Erin, Amy, & Chichi not coming with the other? And why you are even here?” – ask Wolfrik still wondering.

“Again with that question? Is it wrong for a girlfriend coming over to her boyfriend house?” – she ask back.

“Amy & Chichi want to help me with preparing the dinner tonight, as for Eric & Erin will coming along with you guys.” – explain Wolfrik Mother.

He getting more confused,

“What is with that plan? Is somebody coming tonight? And coming along? With whom? To where?”

Wolfrik Mother & Sheila looking each other, then Sheila look at him,

“Wolfy, did Panda not telling you anything?” – Ask Sheila.

“I don’t think she leave any note for,,,” – before he finish his word, he remember that Panda leave one notepad that he still holding in his hand.

 

As he take a look at Panda notepad again, he see that Panda writing something on the back too, as he turn the notepad there is a note that saying,

[I message Sheila to come over, study is good but you need to relax some time to time. Especially when you shut-in for over a month to study & make her worried. Also all member in Drama Club got her temper, already. Calm her down, I pray for your life.]

 

With little relieved & annoy from his message,

“Sorry to make you worried, Brother. Anyway where he is right now? Did he going to the Amusement Park too?” – ask him to Sheila.

“Nope, he going somewhere else.” – she said casually as she try to hide something.

“You know something, don’t you?” – he ask suspicious.

“Nope, I have no idea what you are saying.” – she said while looking at other direction.

“Okey, if you don’t want to tell me, there must be a reason, right? And so, where did you want to go?” – ask him.

“Before that, you need to go shower Wolfy. And finish your breakfast then you can go.” – complain his Mother looking at him still a mess.

“Oh I almost forgot. Aunty, Mom said she will coming over around 15:00 o’clock.” – Sheila said to Wolfrik Mother.

“Yeah, thanks for telling me that. Or actually it’s fine if you don’t tell me about it, because she already send me a message. Even though she is busy with her job, she always have a chance to give a message to her friends. You have a wonderful Mother, Shelly.” – Wolfrik Mother said with smile to her.

“I know.” – she answered with a big smile on her face.

 

And so, women conversation is began while waiting for Wolfrik & the children ready to go. Nobody know what they are talking about, even the children don’t understand. After Wolfrik finish his breakfast, they start to get going to their destination, the Mall.

 

Eric & Erin are the twin with different gender, they born in the Christmas Eve, that’s why they always wanting to watch the Big Christmas Tree inside the Mall Squire. They never wanting any present from other except watching Christmas Tree, you really don’t want to know their reason because even they doesn’t know why, they just want it.

 

For Sheila, she really doesn’t mind about it but, for Wolfrik it always become a little misunderstanding when he going out with his Girlfriend together with Eric & Erin.

 

In front of Ice Cream Store inside the Mall.

As Sheila standing with Erin that holding her right hand waiting for Wolfrik & Eric that buying some Ice Cream for them,

“Sorry to make you waiting.” – say Wolfrik with holding two Ice Cream following by Eric, “We’re Back.” – with two Extra Large Ice Cream too.

“What is with that Ice Cream, I thought you don’t have enough money to buy extra-large for them?” – Sheila surprised seeing the Ice Cream for those two.

“Here is yours Ice Cream. Well don’t worry about it, I got it for half price.” – giving Vanilla Ice Cream to Sheila.

“Thanks. But how you get the half price again?” – she still don’t get it.

“The Worker remember that this day is Eric & Erin birthday, and since we always visit this Store, they giving us a half price. Also,,” – Wolfrik little blush.

“Also what?” – Curious.

*Blush*,

“Also they saying thing like, ‘Oh so you bring your Wife this time, good for you sir. Today we have a special event to give the customer who coming as Couple a discount, would you like to try it Sir?’ so basically they think that you are my Wife.” – he said with his face turn into red.

Happy hearing that Sheila embrace her left hand to him with smile,

“Oh come on, I know you are happy to know that people think that way about us.”

“Urgk.” – his face getting more red.

*Giggle*,

“Come, it is not the time to be embarrassed about small stuff. It’s our children birthday today, we can’t let it pass by just like that, right?” – she said while pulling his hand to walk around the mall.

“Please stop joking around.” – he said with expressionless face.

 

As they walking around the Big Christmas Tree, they keep holding hand each other, since it is crowded & not getting separated. To make both Eric & Erin able to see the Big Christmas Tree, Wolfrik carry Eric & Sheila carry Erin on their shoulder.

 

Around the Big Christmas Tree.

“Sorry, Sheila. I make you to do this with me.” – he said with feeling sorry.

“Nah, don’t worry about it Wolfy. I just take it as a lesson & learn from it for our family later on. And maybe, I adopt both Eric & Erin as our children, you don’t mind don’t you?” – she said with smile at him.

*Blush*,

“What the?” – as he surprised hearing that, his face turn into red.

*Giggle*,

“What is? You should be lucky to have me until the rest of your life, Dear.” – giggle.

Remembering something,

“Yeah, I’m the luckiest man to have you right beside me. Until I remembering something about the first time we date.” – he said with cold sweat coming from his head.

Confused,

“Hhhmmm, What happened?” – she try to remember.

“You don’t remember? It was like this,,,” – Wolfrik remind Sheila.

 

3 Years Ago, Inside the Orphan house.

*Sign Language.*

<Brother, you look happy today. After you really down yesterday, what happen?> – Panda ask with curious.

“Oh you notice?” – he said while smile at his phone.

<Well to be honest, you really creep me out by smiling at your phone the whole time. So, what happened?> – little bit scared.

“Hehehe, sorry about it. Oh yeah, something really good is happening today. Yesterday I just nervous to confess, but starting from today morning we are officially dating.” – with lovely dovey aura coming surrounding him.

<I don’t follow it. Confess? Dating? Who you dating with?> – Panda getting more confused & curious.

“Sheila. Our childhood friends, you remember her, right?” – try to explain.

Shock hearing that,

<You must be kidding me!> – Panda said with scared.

Confused,

“What are you talking about, Brother?”

<Did you forgot already? She always try to put a girl clothes on me & Paola! And push us to play on stage with the rest of us.> – Panda said with fear by their traumatize.

“Eh? Sorry about it.” – he respond as he just remembering those accident.

<Now she is your girlfriend, she will use this opportunity to ask me to play in her club activity.> – Panda said with Cold Sweat.

“I’m really sorry about it, brother.” – he said feel bad about his Brother & Paola.

<<But as long as you are alright with her, & can make her happy, maybe I will be safe from her. And I’m Happy for you too, Brother.>> – said a voice from his phone with smile.

“I don’t know if I should say ‘Thanks you’ to you or what, with the way you saying right now. Oh please, keep it secret from Mother & Father, okey. I will tell them when the time is right.” – he said while whispering.

<I’m not the one you worried about, but Chichi & Paola that play with me is running to the living room, just now.> – he said with Straight Face.

“Oh damn, Pao. Why you didn’t say it sooner? And don’t say it with those ‘straight face’ it confusing.” – panic & try to chasing Chichi & Paola that run to tell Wolfrik Mother about it.

 

And so something similar happened within the whole week, starting with ‘You must be kidding me?’ and ended up with the reason why they are in shock. It’s not a jealous or something that look impossible, but it’s just their traumatic causing by her. Now their traumatic story become his story & his traumatic. How tragic.

 

Back to the present.

“Wolfy, did you listening to me? Wolfy!”

Realizing that he have been spacing out,

“Sorry I was spacing out in the middle of story, what you were saying again?”

“I said, how old is Eric & Erin?” – she ask with curious.

“Oh, about that. If I’m not wrong, Pao said they are 5th years old this years.” – try to remembering what his brother told him.

“So you don’t remember, huh?” – with bored eyes.

“Sorry, sorry, I can’t remember all of their birthday. It was Pao who always remind me about it. Ah talking about him, I think I see him passing by just now with a girl. Is that his girlfriend?” – looking back from the way he walk before.

As Sheila notice he want to looking for his brother, she pulling his hand back,

“Nope, let him have some fun will you. He already big, you don’t need to worry about him that much. Anyway, we need to bring Eric & Erin to home, they already fall asleep here.” – she said while pulling him.

Little bit down & worry,

“Yes, you are right.”

 

As he walk together with her, he letting go his worried & believe what she said to believe his brother will be alright.

 

Meanwhile, on the second floor of the mall, not far from the Big Christmas Tree, someone is watching Panda from the balcony. As everyone can see her long Black hair & White Scarf around her neck combined with her Black Coat is standing there, alone. No one dare to get close to her, no one dare to hitting her, or even ask for her number, no one. With her cold eyes, her glasses & stared are become one, as she put despise look with jealousy she said,

“Hhmmm, this will be Interesting. Don’t you think so, Panda.” – she said with Malicious Grin.

 

In the other hand, one week after The Christmas Eve, approximately 2 hours before The New Year’s come, Wolfrik stuck with Sheila, again.

 

In the New Year’s Festival.

With her hand clingy to him,

*Blush*,

“So, why I’m stuck with you again, Shelly?” – he blushing.

“Hhhmmm, why you ask? Is not it pretty obvious, that because you are my boyfriend.” – she said while getting closer to him.

With his face turn into red because Sheila so close to him that he can feel her warm from his right hand,

“Arg, please stop that.” – he said with his face turn to red.

*Giggle*,

“Nope, I know you like it. I just wondering if nosebleed will come soon, hehehe.” – She said with smile,

“Anyway, you are so focus on study until you forgot to take a rest, everybody know about it.” – as Sheila say that, she little bit down because of worried.

“Yes, I’m sorry to make everyone worried over me. Especially you, I’m sorry.” – feel bad.

“I don’t need your ‘sorry’, I just want to know the reason why you are so focus on study. I know since we are a third-years, it is good to spend our time to study but, you are focus on something else besides study. What’s it? Maybe I can help you. You don’t need to burden it alone on your shoulder, Wolfy. You have me.” – say Sheila that look at his eyes to seek answer.

“Yeah, you are right. I can’t just lock myself without any explanation & make everyone worried even though they just try to help. I’m sorry, Sheila.” – he said while pat her head.

As she little bit annoy by Wolfrik habit which always been that way from the beginning she said,

“You should! So what is it that make you this way. Is it job interview with my father? Or something else.” – she ask.

“No. Maybe half of it, but no. I just need to catch up with him. You know all his story, right? That’s why you always make him as your superstars, so that he distracted from the truth. Thanks for taking care of my brother, Shelly.” – he smile at her.

“He’emd.” – she is nodding.

 

As they stop by & sit on the bench, under the tree they continue their talk,

“So, are you going to University? Or Going to work?” – with drinking her drink.

“I don’t think it’s as simple as that.” – he answered with serious.

“Why?” – Confused.

“Because it’s like a Cram Schools, but it’s actually University. They ask me to come at their place every weekdays, & there will be a test every months, though it already start from 6 month ago. It’s pretty nice of them, giving me money as long as I attend the class everyday. But in the same time, I can’t stay as it is, so I will have part-time job with both My Uncle & your Father, Shelly.” – Wolfrik try to explain.

With her eyes trying to understand, she ask,

“Are you really going?”

“I’m sorry. But yes, I will. They already giving me the exception to come along, so I can’t let this chance down easily. Are you gonna be alright when I’m gone?” – worried.

With her spirit she standing up & pointed her finger to him,

“Of course I’m not! But if you are going to give up halfway, I will gonna beat you up till dead, do you understand?”

“Huh, ah yes Ma’am.” – he said with scared

“Even I’ll be lonely here. If that is the only way, then I just need to work as hard as my Father, & reach the top like my Mother, right. So, just wait for me & I will come to you.” – she said with smile.

*Giggle*,

“Yeah, I will be waiting for you. Thanks, Shelly.” – he answered her smile.

 

With both of them smile to each other, time is flowing fast as The Fireworks is already start.

 

Wolfrik standing to stay beside Sheila & holding her hand, as she looking at him, he whispering,

“I really do love you, Happy New Year’s, Sheila.”

As she blushing & smiling at him,

“Yeah, I know.”

 

And so with those two holding each their feeling together, promise that mean to kept as it written on the new chapter that just began.

 

Even a Lion is just another kitten when they are in love. Even a Lone Wolf is just a lonely animal that need love. All can understand what it mean, the only problem are how they seeing things.

 

That’s the only thing that keep them together, & another thing that keep coming as they grow to love each other even more. For them everything is already clear, the only thing they need is just to step forward to which fate will bring to them, they never know.

With love everything is acceptable, the difference, region, age, even the gender. Many doesn’t understand, many just laughing, yet they seek the same thing. Sometime all you need to understand is closed your eyes, ignored those who laugh, & listen for who they really are,,

Bunny Diary Chapter 05; Voice Present

 

If you can sing a song, what would you sing along, I wonder.

If you don’t have any voice to begin with, what would you sing on the Stage, I wonder.

Each of decision is always begin from wondering of what will happen after you deciding.

 

Either it led you to the right way or another way, the future is always like a mystery, full of endless possibility. The past is history, where you either remember all of them as a lesson or forgetting all of them as tears. But today is a gift, that is why it is called present.

 

Friday, December 01st, 2004.

It’s been a few month after that accident with Panda, the idea that everyday will back to normal afterward is not suit him at all. Since the last show from Paola manuscripts were a big success, President Sheila decide to make Panda as the main role in every Stage that being organized.

 

He agreed in term the practice will be scheduled after he finish the Student Council stuff. But, even he have much less practice than the others, how he play are always outstanding than the other who have a lot of practice.

 

17:30, inside Drama Club.

As Echa coming inside,

“Sorry it took me awhile to get the drinks.” – she said with bringing 2 mineral drink,

“Panda?” – Echa ask once more since there is no respond from him, she call him with a low sound.

 

As she looking at Panda who sleeping in front of the Stage, on the floor, she make slow step to him.

 

And sit beside him, as she looking at how Panda sleeping,

(Wach,, He sleeping so deep. When he sleep, he really like a normal student, huh. Maybe I will let him sleep, and wake him later before I’m going home.) – she thought.

 

Few minute later.

(But, when I look at him closely, he really cute.) – she thought as she smile with leaning her chin into her hand while looking at how Panda sleeping.

 

Without she realizing there is a notepad in front of her, as saying,

[Just how long are you going to staring at me while I’m sleep?] – as Panda give a notepad with expressionless face.

*Blush*,

“Waahhh,, S-S-Sorry,, I don’t mean to staring at you while you sleeping.” – she said with surprised.

Using Sign Language,

<Just what you are thinking, you smile while watching me sleep just now.> – Panda suspicious.

As she blushing,

“No, it nothing. Really. Oh, here is your drink.” – as she give the bottle of mineral water to him.

<Thanks.> –  Panda said as he sit & lean his back on Stage.

 

Maybe it surprising to know that Echa able to understand sign language now, but that’s one thing, the way they are right now is the other thing.

 

As Echa looking at him taking his drink, she remembering how they are meet for the first time. Few month ago, or at least one week after the show, President Sheila announce that Panda will also play the role alongside with her. So everybody need to understand him at least little bit, that is what President Sheila told us.

 

Especially Echa who is right now always being put together with Panda, as she thought,

(Thanks for that I able to understand his sign languages, but somehow why everybody manuscripts are turn into love story & all base on both of us recently.) – she thought with cold sweat,

“Panda, why you look so tired today?” – she ask as she noticed him pushing himself too much recently.

<I’m not.>

*Giggle*,

“You are pretty bad at lying, Panda.” – she smile.

<You keep asking me the same question from start, are not you?> – he ask.

“Hehe, and you keep answered me with the same answer every single time. At least tell me the reason, we’re friend right?” – she said with smile.

As Panda looking at her,

<If I said it was because of you, what would you do?> – with smile.

Surprised with his smile that only show in stage Echa blushing,

*Blush*,

“Whach,,, (Oh my, oh my, he smile at me, but wait,) Wait, you do that on purpose are not you?” – she annoy after she remember he is pretty naughty sometime.

*Giggle*,

<You got me there.> – he smile as both of them laughing to each other.

 

Few minute later after their laugh filling the empty room, though the only laugh that can be hear is Echa laugh.

“Panda, I’m sorry for our Club President behavior & thanks for your effort to helping us till where we are right now.” – she said with her gratitude tone.

<Don’t worry about it, I know how she is.>

“No, really. I really appreciate your help, Panda. Even in The Halloween Event that usually flat, you & Paola were helped us with ‘Ghost Ship’ Show, and it was the second success from our club. We never had so many request from Mall & the others school for our show before.” – she said as she show her gratitude to him.

<You are welcome, though in this situation Sheila is not at wrong.> – he with smile.

“Eh? What do you mean Panda?” – she suddenly got confused.

Suddenly he write something on his notepad,

[Remember the show you have in Springs to attract the freshman?]

“Yeah, but why you start to write again Panda?” – Echa got more confused.

[It’s easier to make you understand. That time I just walk around accompany Paola, & since some of your member got injured from a small accident there. Sheila give you a task to find a replacement, fast! so that’s how you drag me along though the one who want to play actually Paola.] – with bored face he give the notepad.

 

“Is that what really happened?” – she embarrassed since she doesn’t remember about it.

*Giggle*,

<Yups. I have been trying to avoid her for at least half year, but in the end you catch me.>

“Then, is there anything I can do to apologize?” – Echa ask with feeling responsible for dragging him to the club.

<No need, Enchi.> – he said with smile.

As Echa try to convince him, she using sign language too,

<No can’t do, if it’s not because of you, we’re not who we are right now. President Sheila also always told us about you, so at the very least, let me show our gratitude to you.> – she smile.

*Giggle*,

[Your sign language are pretty mess up, but if you that insisted then are you free on December 24th?] – Panda smile as he give Echa a notepad.

With cold sweat,

“Sorry about that, but yeah I think so, why?” – she ask.

As he smile at her,

<Go out with me.> – he said casually.

*Blush*,

“Heh?” – With that as her respond, she blushing.

 

But, the way Echa was blushing is out of her own personality.

Even she doesn’t know what is happened with her in that moment, since it’s not like she feeling embarrassed or have fever, but she just did.

 

She had this kind of weird feeling from the start, to be exact just after seeing Panda smile at Paola. Smile which is not hiding anything, smile that was not for himself, but a smile for the happiness of others. Echa never saw that kind of smile in someone before, not with eyes that full of satisfaction or even from Panda himself, not until that moment.

 

Though in the end, she doesn’t bother with all those strange feeling & thinking that she had toward Panda, as she understand it is just an admirable feeling. From her, to Panda.

 

December 24th, 2004, at 10:00.

As Echa waiting for Panda in the promised place, she hear the voice that she never know before from behind,

<<Sorry I’m late, did I make you wait that long.>>

Which confused her & think that this person is mistook her with somebody else, she turn to him and say,

“I’m sorry, I think you have the wrong person,,,,W-wait, Panda? You can talk!” – as she surprised seeing Panda behind her.

*Giggle*,

<<Sorry. Did I startle you?>> – he smile.

As she looking from where did that voice coming from, she look at his smartphone,

“You can talk with your smartphone?” – she wonder.

*Giggle*,

<<Not quite, right. This application is just convert words into voice. With a little bit improvement of Panda style, of course.>> – Panda smartphone voice.

“Cool, then why you don’t use that in school, Panda?” – she ask casually.

<<Did you forget I’m Student Council member? I can’t break my own rules, Enchi.>> – Panda smartphone voice with his eyes looking at her strangely.

*Giggle*,

“Hehehe, sorry, I forgot about that.” – she said with smile.

<Stay still> – as Panda give her a sign language to stay still, he getting close to her & put something on her ears.

“Eh, what is this for Panda?” – ask Echa as she recognize it’s Bluetooth earbuds that he put on her ears.

As the voice are getting clear,

<<Shall we go?>> – with smile he give his hand to Echa as it mean to hold each other hand.

 

And so, they are walk together to their first destination, the Aquarium. But they are not holding hand, as she know that Panda only teasing her before. Though it is enough to make her blushing.

 

Inside the Aquarium, as they talking to each other like there is no tomorrow Echa notice that something is off with Panda, he watch those fish like they are so beautiful. Maybe it’s true those fish are beautiful, but there is another deep meaning within his eyes that she can’t tell by words.

 

“Panda, are you alright?” – Echa grabs his right arm as she worried.

As he realized that he make someone beside him worried, he turn to her & pat her hair,

«Sorry, I didn’t mean to make you worried.» – with smile.

“Are you sure?” – she ask once more to make sure.

«Yeah, I’m pretty sure about it, since I’m hungry right now.»

“Wait, don’t tell me that you look at those fish so deep because you want to eat them?” – she surprised.

<I can’t?> – Panda said with sigh language & innocence face.

Annoying with Panda,

“Of course you can’t eat those fish! At least you need to cook them first & even you did, don’t you eat only bamboo usually?!!” – Echa shouting.

«Ok, ok.» – as a voice coming from her earbuds, he change to sign language & get closer to her,

<But Enchi, Sssttt,, can you not shouting, you are disturbing the other you know.> – he said whispering to Enchi.

 

As she try to looking around & notice that they become the center of attention, Echa face turn into red because of embarrassing, she grabs Panda hand with saying,

“Let’s go.” – and they running.

 

Few minutes later, out of the Aquarium close to shopping district.

“Can you stop that? Why you still laughing anyway.” – she said annoyed seeing Panda still giggles all the time.

*Giggle*,

«Hehehe, sorry I can’t believe that you actually saying that you want to cook those fish out loud.» – he smile.

Annoyed,

“Are you satisfied?” – she said with angry face.

«Oops, sorry about it. Let’s go eat here, I really hungry with those laugh.» – Panda said with pointing his finger to one of small family restaurant.

As he drag her to go to that small family restaurant, she remember something important & stopping him with both of her hand,

“Ah Panda, can you leave it to me, to order the menu I mean,,” – she said as she remember that Panda is Mute, but before she finish her sentence, Panda typing.

«Enchi.» – a voice from her earbuds.

“Yes?” – she responded.

*Giggle*,

«Just how long do you want to holding my hand?» – with smile.

*Blush*,

“Ah, I’m sorry.” – as she immediately letting his hand go & blushing since she keep holding his hand for a while. But as soon as Echa letting his hand go, Panda going to the cashier,

“Wait, Panda.” – she said trying to stop Panda realizing that he is going to the cashier, running.

 

“Welcome, is there something you did like to order, Sir? Oh Pao, it is really you! It rare to see you at this hour, hey everyone Pao is here!!” – greeting one of the worker & following the rest of them that wanted to see him, even theirs chefs also greet him.

Confused with what is happened, Echa can’t say a single words except think,

(What is going on here?) – she thought.

<Hey, you guys better get back to work before the manager back.> – he said using sign language & bored eyes.

“Hahaha, as strict as always, hah. Don’t worry, she just leave the restaurant for meeting, so it gonna be fine.” – said the worker who greeting Panda first.

<Are you trying to dig your own grave? There are CCTV to watch how you guys work.> – Panda said with straight face.

“Wach, you are right. Thanks for remind me, Pao. So, what’s your order?” – he ask with smile.

<Like usually.>

“Sure thing, Sir. So how about the girl, what she order?” – he ask casually.

<Why you still standing there? Come here, & order what you want to eat.> – Panda said with smile.

After Echa finish with her meal order, she pulling Panda shirt because she feel being leave alone & curious,

“Hey Panda, do you know those guy?” – she ask whispering to Panda.

<Yups.> – he respond casually.

Realizing that Echa whispering something to Panda, the worker respond with energetic,

“Oh you are on dating, hah? Hey everyone Pao have a girlfriend now!!” – as he shouting again to tell the others worker & start a ruckus again that make both of them startled.

With Echa & Panda get annoyed,

<She is not my girlfriend!> + “He is not my boyfriend!” – they accidently answered him with sync.

“Oho, but you guys pretty synchronized you know. So, what’s your girlfriend name? Even I’m little bit sad by the way you are not telling me about this. At least let make a celebration for it, what do you think, Pao?” – he said while not listening to Panda with confidence smile he had.

Little bit suspicious,

“Panda, don’t you think he remind you with someone?” – she ask with cold sweat.

*Sigh*,

«Yes. You are not mistake, He is the Third Brother of Ursiblue.»

Echa respond with tired eyes,

“No wonder he is not listening at all. Is all of them like this?”

<You can tell by that specific annoying trait they have.> – he said little bit annoy.

 

As both barely can escape from Ursiblue Brother, they get assault of question from each worker that passing their table, both Echa & Panda are tired, mentally.

 

2 hours later.

“So tell me, Pao. If you not on dating, then what you guys doing?” – he wonder.

*Sigh*,

<As gratitude. Just hangout. That’s all.> – Panda said as he already tired explaining to him for two whole hour but seem nothing is going in his head, Panda try to answer him as simple & short as he can.

Surprising thing is he actually understand with that kind simple answer,

“Oh really? Then are you,,”

Before he could finish his word, Echa cut his line as she could see that Panda is really tired already,

“Hhmm, can I ask you something?”

“Oh, of course Enchi, don’t be shy just ask anything you want to know about Panda.” – he said casually.

(Eh? Why he also calling me that way too now?) – she thought little bit annoyed,

“I just want to know, how you meet him?” – Echa ask casually without thinking.

 

And with her question, they spend the next hour listening to nothing but his story. Yet there are 3 thing that Echa learn from those story, first, although he is Mute, he is good at teaching. So he open a small kindergarten to teaching those children’s who is poor & that’s how he meet Ursiblue brother & the rest that wanted to help him to do so. Especially those worker inside the small family restaurant, the manager, and the others.

 

Secondly, in order to collect the money for the kindergarten equipment before the government help, he going to various part-time working like the rest of them did. No wonder sometime he look so tired after school. But somehow Echa understand that there is something more than that, since she know him for quite a while now.

 

Lastly, Echa learn that Panda is actually an orphan. Which make, the guy who called him brother is Step-brother. Yet as Echa listening to Sheila story every single time, about Wolf-Boy, she can tell that his character doesn’t bother much about it. Blood-related or not, once family is always family.

 

The thing she ask is just to save Panda, but seem it become personal information & privacy that should not be talking about without Panda permission. And that led to this awkward moment, that happen the moment they leave the restaurant.

 

Half-hour pass since they leave the family restaurant & now going to their final destination, the mall.

 

«Enchi, if I take a picture of your face right now, I think you are no difference with Rudolf.» – Panda said trying to break the awkward moment between them.

“……..” – with silence she smile.

As he smile back at her,

«Don’t let it yourself going down like that, we’re here because you want to repay your gratitude, right? So if you don’t having fun, it’s really not fun you know.» – he said with patting her hair.

*Blush*,

“Okey, okey, just stop patting me like a bunny.” – she said with blushing she putting Panda hand away from her head.

*Giggle*,

<But, you are Enchi The Bunny. You should be happy about it, a little.> – giggle.

*Annoyed*,

“Ah again? You know, sometimes I don’t know if you want to cheer me or teasing me.” – she making a annoy face.

*Giggle*,

<I like both.> – Panda said with innocent face.

Annoyed,

“Hey,,,”

 

So, when they finally arrive at their destination, they spend their time together in the mall where usually a Big Christmas Tree was there. Many couple are coming only to watch how beautiful the Christmas Tree are, except Echa & Panda isn’t a couple here. And what is more, they spend the entire time fighting & joking, which is attract people’s attention without they intentionally.

 

There are also another reason why ‘Big Christmas Tree’ event are popular among the couples. It’s because every couple that come to ‘Big Christmas Tree’ event will get a free-random-present from the sponsor & owner of the mall himself.

 

As the event are ended at 00:00, the air are getting cold & late, Panda accompany Echa all the way to her home. Even actually, his home is exactly opposite from direction to Echa house.

 

The way to Echa house, close to the bridge.

«Oh, here is your Christmas Present before I forget, Merry Christmas.» – giving his present to her.

“Thanks you, Panda. Here, I have also a present for you, hope you like it.” – she said as she exchange the present & exciting,

“Panda, can I open the present?” – she ask while she guessing, shaking, & wondering what is inside of the present.

<Of course.> – he responded with smile.

And so when she open the present, she is as surprised as she could be,

“Panda, what’s this?!?!”

<Smartphones.> – answered her casually.

“I know it, in second thought I can’t accept it. It must be expensive.” – she said as she try to return the present to Panda.

«Enchi, it’s Christmas. You can’t return the present to the person who just give to you, except you throw it or just burn it if you don’t want it. At least it make you warm, right.» – he smile with eyes little bit scary.

“From the way you are saying, don’t tell me you already planning this all the time? You know that I didn’t do that kind of cruel thing, are you?” – she ask with suspicious eyes.

*Giggle*,

«Yups, if I didn’t doing it this way, you will try to return the present just like now.» – he type with smile.

“Yeah but,,” – she feel awkward with the present, before she can finish her words Panda give another voice speak to her earbuds.

«If the price that you are worried about, don’t worry I buy it on advertisements, so it quite cheap & it was also half of my fault that your phone is broken, at least it will make me happy if you just accept it.» – he typing with smile.

“Then I can’t complain about anything, huh. Thanks, Panda.” – she said as she answer his smile.

 

In front of Echa house.

“Thanks for tonight Panda.”

<You’re Welcome.>

“Oh almost forgot, your earbuds,,” – before she could take it off, Panda stop her.

<It was mean for you.>

“Huh? Really? Is not this earbuds is expensive too?” – she ask to make sure.

<Not at all.> – he said with smile.

“Is your phone dead?” – she ask noticing that he using sign language rather than typing, as somehow Echa don’t want to end the conversation either.

<Yeah, low battery.>

“Thanks again, Panda.”

<Just how many time you need to say thanks, Enchi.> – he smile.

“Sorry.”

*Giggle*,

<It’s only between ‘sorry & thanks’ you have been saying the whole time. But better you going in, your parent must be worried & it’s getting cold outside.> – he said with pat her hair.

“Okay.” – as she can’t look at him in the eyes for some reason & not complain when he pat her hair.

<Then I will be going back, see you.> – he said while he turn his back & walk away.

As she rise her head, she shout to him,

“See you next year, Panda. You better getting fat by the time we meet again, because you look skinny. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!!” – after she shouting that, she just running away inside her house.

 

As Panda looking at how she is running,

(Is she looking for a fight or what? Oh well, whatever. At least I do what I want to do for today.) – he thought with little bit confused, and then continue his step.

The opposite thing is happening to her,

*Blush*,

(Oh my, just what happened with me?) – as she still standing in front of the door she lying her body on, she blushing so red that steam are coming out from her head.

As her Big Sister notice the noise,

“Yo, sister. So, how is your Dat,, wait, what is happened to you? Why you are so red? And steaming?! Are you alright, Enchi? Enchi, are listening?” – her sister ask with panic seeing Echa in those condition.

 

From here onward, everything is not the same as before. As Echa feel something strange happen to her, the mysterious aura behind Panda past are getting nowhere to be reveal. Where the love is not close enough to be called love without a single drop of the darkness.
