Next day, I took my bath as early as possible and put on my cloth. I have to meet Francis, I can’t keep him waiting.

 

I told my grandparents that I am going out and they nodded, I smiled and went out of the small house.

 

I walk toward the building and I was surprised to see him there already.

Maybe Ten minutes ago ” he replied

He gave me a bag, I checked the bag and if contain Clothes and shoes, I couldn’t believe my eye.

I hugged him like my life depends on it, this is the first time I will have someone to give me clothes.

“You are so evil, how can you do that to me!! I loved you, and you know that ” I shouted at her

 

She hugged me immediately, I wanted to push her away but something in me can’t resist her. The truth is, I still love angelica so much.

 

” Am so sorry Francis, but I love you so much ” she said

I,,,,, I really love Robert, I love him, please don’t bother us anymore. I don’t love you ” she said. I almost ran crazy when she said that, I ran out of the house.

 

I wanted to call Marilia and I remember that she doesn’t even have a phone, my life is just a waste.

 

I was walking around a garden when I saw someone who look like Marilia, is she the one?

 

She walked closer to me and I saw that she’s really the one. She look different, she’s more pretty. Her hair was arranged neatly and she was putting on a nice cloth and shoe.

 

I guess she saw me, she ran toward me and smiled

 

” hi Francis, look at me, how do I look? Am so different, thanks for the clothes ”

 

she said and smiled

 

” it’s okay ” I replied
