“You should be proud. You managed to make me fall in love with you. That’s quite a feat if you ask me.”
Mao had been in love with Charley, his best friend’s ate, since he was seven. He knew it wasn’t just a simple infatuation dahil nanatili siyang loyal sa nararamdaman hanggang sa magbinata. Ni minsan ay hindi niya naisipang tumingin sa iba. Pero ni minsan din ay hindi nagawang tumingin ni Charley sa kanya. Why, he was five years younger than her. How could a lady like Charley fall in love with an eighteen-year-old boy?
Minsan nang sinabi ni Mao ang nararamdaman sa dalaga, but she just laughed at him and told him he would outgrow the feeling. Pinagdududahan ni Charley ang kanyang nararamdaman. It hurt like hell, pero gagawin niya ang lahat upang makita nito that he was not the boy she used to know.
