"Daddy! Where’s daddy?" Little Charleen's voice trembled and tears repeatedly ran down here cheeks. "I miss daddy, I haven't seen him for 2 days now!"
"Honey, daddy is just taking a rest" her mother's shaky voice replied. Charleen glared at her mother and knew that wasn't the truth.
"I want dady!" Charleen instantly forced herself out of her mother's grasp and ran out of the house.
"Charleen!" her mother gasped and before she could catch her, Charleen was already out of her sight. "He's never waking up again.....he's never waking up again...." she sobbed and kneeled on the ground.
Charleen made herself to the park a few blocks away. "Daddy, daddy! Where are you," she trailed off. Soon after she sat down by the swings next to a little boy.
"Why are you crying?" The boy asked as he arched his eyebrows.
"My dady, he went away. He didn't take me with him...." *sniff* *sniff*
The little boy's face frowned and he stared away not knowing what to say next.
"Do you want my daddy? I can go get him?" The boy asked.
"No! I want my dady not yours...*sniff *..dummy." She cried even harder this time.
The little boy's eyes grew wide. He absolutely didn't know why he made her cry even harder. What was he suppose to do? He doesn't want to make anyone cry harder now. What to do, what to do. Yes! "You know, my mom always told me that white tulips would make her happy."
Charleen looked up and went silent. *sniff sniff* "What? no, that will never make me happy," she replied, wiping away her tears.
"I will be right back." The boy got straight out of his swings and off he went.
"Wait! where are you going?" Charleen shouted.
"I'll be back!"
A moment past by and soon after, the boy did come back. He came back with a whole bunch of white tulips that he picked in his hands.
"Here, take it. This will make you feel better. Mommy said the color white is always to make people happy." The boy handed Charleen the flowers.
"EwWww!! it's gota worm on it!" she threw the tulips away and fell off the swing. "OUCH!!" She cried. Right on her butt she fell.
"Huh? a worm?" The boy picked up the squiggling worm. "Tsk-tsk, you're afraid of a worm?" He held it even closer into Charleen's face.
"Ahh!! stop it!" She screamed and covered her eyes.
"Sorry, sorry...," He picked up the tulips and brushed it off with his hands. "Here, no more worms see." The boy gave it to her again.
This time Charleen looked up and accepted it. *sniff* sniff*
"Ethon! honey, where in the world did you go! I've been looking all over for you!" A tall beautiful lady came running and grabbed the boy into her arms. Charleen looked up as the boy was being drawn away from her. "Bye bye...," he waved back at her.
"How could you just go off like that. You left me worried sick. Now, lets get you cleaned up. We can't miss our flight back to Korea." The boy's mother brushed off the dirt that was still left on his face and clothes.
Charleen watched as the two figures disappeared out of her sight. She looked down at the flowers she had in front of her and gave in a smile.
10 years later
It was a cloudy, gloomy day because it just got done raining. The sun was barely peeking it's self out from the dark gray clouds but not enough to keep Charleen from the goose bumps she was getting.
"BrRrrRRrr...come on sun, com out. Today's a bit too cold for you to be hiding there." Charleen shivers beneath her breath.
"Charleen wait up!!." A familiar voice called out from behind.
"Huh? Who's that?" She quickly turned around and she saw her best friend running and running. A slight smile appeared across her face and she waved back. "Shine! Hurry!" She shouted towards that direction.
"I thought you left early today already? I waited for you but you didn't come out so that's why I left. Sorry girl."
Shine grinned at Charleen and let out a little giggle looking away.
"You wouldn't believe it!" Shine stated in excitement. "I just met this new guy after school today, and oh my gosh, he was such a hottie!!."
"Oh..tee-hee..yea and?" Charleen added enjoying the same excitement.
"Well, I tripped on someone's back-pack and almost fell over and he caught me! Boy! it was so embarrassing but good thing was, we both introduced ourselves and he asked me to go out on a date with him! Can you believe it!"
"So when's the date? Tonight? Tomorrow? A week from now?" Charleen asked giving her full attention.
"Tonight, oh man! what to wear, what to LOOK like? " Shine replied as she placed her index finger on her lips and looked up into the gray clouds.
Charleen faced up to the gray clouds also when she noticed the silence between them.
"So??. Any idea?" Shine finally asked.
Charleen shrugged. "Yano, I really don't know...wear a dress?...wear heels..um LOTS of make-up."
"HahHha..GREAT! well, of course that's what we girls always have to wear right?"
Charleen nodded in agreement."Yup, sorry I can't give you much ideas because I've actually never gone on a date before." She never had time to date. Too busy with school and other things in her life. Boys never really excited her.
Suddenly Shine slapped Charleen on the back. "You silly girl, don't say that. Maybe the right one just hasn't come yet. Let fate find you your destiny lovah!!"
Charleen coughed playfully and giggled. "Yeah yeah."
"Any ways, wish me luck on my date tonight! I'll tell you all about it tomorrow alright."
"Okidoki, Have fun then."
The girls finally approached the corner to where they were to separate. Before Shine turned around she asked Charleen. "Hey, you need to me to walk home with you? Will you be alright?" Shine asked as she rested her hands on Charleen's shoulders.
"Yeah, don't worry. I'm going to pay a visit to my father. Then I'll go home after." She smiled.
"You need me to come along, I mean, it's practically a CEMETARY!!!"
Charleen laughed out loud. "You're so funny, I'll be fine. It's not that dark out. I should be fine, you go on home."
"Alrighty. Call me if any thing alright. If that bastard step father of yours even touches you I swear I'm going to call the cops. Watch over your mom too." Shine stated her last words before turning her way home and Charleen turned her way to the flower shop.
Charleen had a step father that her mother had recently married who was a major alcoholic. He would abuse his mother carelessly and every night there would always be arguments and cries. As each week ended Charleen tried visiting her father's grave before heading home. She knew if she was to go home first and if her step father was home, she was forbidden to go anywhere. Therefore, right after school was the best time.
Every time when Charleen pays a visit to her father, which is almost once a week, she would stop by the flower shop which was right around the corner. She wasn't very rich to buy a whole bouquet of flowers every time, but she'll at least buy one type of flower before she leaves.
*RING RING* (the door bell)
"Oh hello Charleen, how nice to see you again this week. I was wondering when you were coming by again." A pleasant voice waved for Charleen's attention.
Charleen faced her attention to the far end of the shop and proceeded towards that direction. "Mrs. Szuki how are you? Well, I'm here today." She beamed warmly as she made herself through the flower aisle.
After the quick greet, Charleen glanced over to the young man that was checking out at the register beside her. He also stared her way and managed to smile but that smile didn't express what was written all over his face. His eyes were glassy and sad-like, as if he just got out of the worst days of his life. A tall HANDSOME young man he was. His soft-like black hair was messily gelled and he had girly bangs that rested above his eyelid. Oh yeah, he was a cutie! He had on a dark blue collar shirt beneath his black suite and held a big bouquet of white tulips in his hands. Then finally he nodded respectfully to Charleen and excused himself silently.
"Oh, excuse me too..." Charleen quietly said bowing back. She blinked out of her daze when she realized it was impolite to stare but at the same time Charleen had caught the man's mix expression and she wondered confusedly as she place her gaze back to Mrs. Szuki.
Reading Charleen's face Mrs. Szuki sighed. "He's a quiet one alright. I believe he is from Korea. I heard he is here with his father on business matters. He does come here quite often though. Funny thing is, the only type of flowers he would buy is white tulips. Not even a different color. Just plain white."
"White tulips?" Charleen went confused as one of her eyebrows arched. "I mean at least buy colorful ones right?"
Mrs. Szuki nodded. "Yup, sure thing. But like they say, there has to be a reason to everything right?"
"Yeah you're right." Charleen smiled and stepped a little away from the counter. "Any ways, it's really not my business. I really don't know him so I shouldn't have to worry." She then searched around smelling the flowers behind her. "You got any of those pretty carnations?. I'll buy three."
"Sure sweetheart, come right this way." Mrs. Szuki came out from behind the counter and lead the way.
**Ring Ring**(Door bell again)
"Good by honey, see you soon." Mrs. Szuki waved in the air joyfully.
"Bye, oh you'll see me." Charleen assured.
Around the flower shop, just a few blocks away, was the cemetery. After a few minutes Charleen found herself dazing off again about the boy she saw at the flower shop. She never thought Korean guys would be that hot looking. Especially this one. Charleen just couldn't understand why his smile had turned into a sudden frown. Maybe she wasn't alone...maybe he had lost someone very special in his life too...
Suddenly, Charleen was knocked out of her state when she heard a car door shut.
"Huh?.." she paid her conscious towards the midnight-blue Lexus LF-A. "Whoa, nice car."
The car was about 10 feet away from her stand and she found her self solid and still. Why couldn't she move? It was him! that handsome thing! It was the man she met at the flower shop just before. Charleen's eyes grew fairly large and kept her gaze from a distance. The young man had also noticed her too and once again he nodded as to greet her again. Then he continued reaching into the passenger seat of his car and brought out the white bouquet of Tulips. He glanced at her one more time expressionless, soon had his back towards her and walked away.
Charleen nodded again nervously and went back into her own world. So, guess she was right. He must've lost someone too. "I mean that's the only reason why a person would be at a cemetery right?" A voice inside her asked.
Afterwards, Charleen finally got to her father's grave. She slowly kneeled down and noticed all the dead flowers that were still laying in front of it. "Father, I'm here to visit you again. I brought you carnations this time." She managed a slight smile and reached for her locket she was wearing with her necklace. She kissed it gently and got up. Right before she could get up a palm pressed against her shoulders.
"You lost someone special too?" the familiar voice asked.
Charleen's heart beat suddenly and she inhaled deeply as if surprised. "I'm sorry, I shouldn't talk to strangers." She quickly bowed not knowing who it was.
"You know, I lost my mom not too long ago."
When Charleen looked up, it was him! was it really that hunky boy who was talking to her? or was she imagining things? Charleen blinked a few times and stepped a few steps backwards.
"Uh, umm...sorry I don't know you. I should get going."
The boy stared at her weirdly because he was actually expecting that she would say, "I'm sorry to hear that," but no, she refused to talk to him. Before he could even say a word she was already running away.
"Uh, okay. Kind of weird but oh well. Guess I'm just a stranger. But my name is Ethon!" He shouted back. Knowing she couldn't hear him.
Ethon had noticed the girl that he saw at the flower shop was the same girl at that same cemetery too. So he thought since he saw her twice already he was going to take the chance to go meet her. Ethon wanted to tell her that she wasn't alone and life wasn't over but it didn't work out as he expected.
It was Ethon's first week back to Tokyo, Japan and the first thing he wanted to do was to go visit his mother's grave. Unfortunately, his mother was grave was at the same cemetery as that girl.
Soon before Ethon turned back to his car a bright shinny light had caught his eyes. He then peered towards that direction to indicate what it was.
"Huh what's this?" He picked up the golden locket and necklace. He then opened it carefully and peeked inside. It was a picture of a man and his daughter. Which looked exactly like the girl he saw before. Instead, just a younger version.
Ethon inhaled as his eyes grew wide. He turned his head quickly towards the same direction the girl had ran off to and shouted again. "Hey! wait! you...you..." farther and farther the girl grew from him. Ethon scratched his neck and looked at the locket again. "I guess I'll be seeing you again." He smiled and let out a sigh.

Charleen finally got home and before she turned the door knob she took a deep breath. Letting it out with worries that bothered her in the back of her head. Slowly she opens the door and she found herself in MAJOR SHOCK!
"MOTHER!" Charleen shouted and ran towards her mother.
"Charleen...Charleen....come here...please.." Mrs. Vophaski's weak voice called out as she held her bloody wrist in front of Charleen.
"What happened? What did you do?!!"
Mrs. Vophaski was too weak to even answer. Charleen took her mother in her arms and cried out, holding tightly. "Mother, how could he have done this to you?"
"I love him...I love him..." Mrs. Vophaski stated as she turned up to face Charleen.
Charleen's face turned into discuss and helped her mother up. "No! But he doesn’t love you! Don't you get it! He uses you! Can't you see?" She pointed out sharply.
"No...no!...that's not true!" At this point Mrs. Vophaski had been tortured to the point where she gets mental for a limited time. When she feels she has disappointed Charleen's step-father she tortures herself.
"Come on lets get you cleaned up...come on up..pup pup.."
Charleen assisted her mother to the bathroom and splashed water all over her mother's face.
"There, you in there?" Charleen shook her mom to get her to snap out of it.
"Charleen, what have I done?" Mrs. Vophaski looked around slowly and then back to her daughter. "Oh have mercy!! blood! blood! What did I do? Charleen, tell me I didn't do this to myself?"
Charleen nodded and still she was crying. "Yes mom, please...please promise me this won't ever happened again. PROMISE ME." She shook her mother one more time to get assurance and embraced her again. "I love you mom. Don't leave me too. Not yet...not now...not ever..."
Mrs. Vophaski forced a slight smile and she was happy to be saved by her loving daughter.
Later on that evening Charleen tucked her mother in bed.
"You sleep tight mom. If you need anything yell for me I'll be downstairs okay." She gave her mom a loving warm smile and kissed her on the forehead. Like a baby her mother went sound asleep in no time.
Charleen looked up at the time and she gasped. "Uhg!! Time! Why can't you just wait?" the time was already 9 and she was suppose to already been in bed. "Oh! homework! test! Got to study, got to study!" She raced down the stairs and went straight on to her study.
*tick-tock tick-tock* the clock ticked as the time flew by.
Charleen dared to look at the time again. It was 2 in the morning now and she still wasn't done with her homework! She groaned harshly and ripped out a piece of lined paper, crumpled it up and threw it away. Soon after she sighed thinking of her father what he used to tell her.
"Princess, why are you crying?"
*sniffs. sniffs* from little 6 year old Charleen. "Daddy, daddy, I can't get this correct. I hate doing spelling!"
"Aww sweetheart, take a deep breath...count 1..2...3 and let your frustration all out....then start over with what you were doing and then we'll see if you can figure it out."
Little Charleen takes a deep breath, "Like this daddy...1..2..3.." lets it out.
"Yes darling, now do it again."
".......Yes daddy! I did it! I finally spelt Charleen right! Yey!"
"You did it pumpkin and now you can go show your teacher tomorrow."
Her father lift her up into his lap and smiled touching her pig tails. "You know, sometimes you can't let your self be frustrated of small things like that. Life is just too short for a sweet little child like you to even be stressing" and he kisses her on the forehead.
****End of flash back****
As the thought glided through her empty mind she reached to her locket. Instantly she found herself in shock. She quickly touched her neck to feel for it again, IT WAS GONE! Charleen inhaled deeply and instantly got up. She searched around the table and even went outside with a flashlight to see if it had dropped elsewhere.
"OOoooOOoh...where could it have gone?" She asked herself slapping herself on forehead. A moment later she thought back to where she had been. "HumMm...to school...uh....to the flower shop...and?" She remembered! "The cemetery!" Charleen let out a small sigh. "Yikes, I'm not going out there at this time of the night. Guess I'll just have to drop by tomorrow."
"What are you still doing so late out you rat!" a harsh voice yelled out before she could close the door behind her.
Charleen twirled around and her face struck black. "Uhh...Sao..I'm..heading to bed I guess." Frighten and scared already she was. It was her step-father and of course Charleen couldn't accept him as a father. That's why she doesn't like calling him father.
"What did you call me!?" Drunk and crazy he came up the steps as Charleen steps back and proceeded upstairs to her room.
Ignoring her step-father's question she ran straight up to her room, closed the door tight and locked it. She knew what was going happen next if she had argue with him so when she had the chance she'll just run away, far far away.
"Charleen wake up!" Shine said as she grabbed Charleen's left shoulder and shook it back and forth.
"huMMmmMmm...stop...stop....I'm too tired..." Charleen mumbled and looked up. The image was blurry at first but when the view cleared, a sharp face was standing tall up on top of her.
"Oh!...uhh..." She jumped up and started scratching her head. "I'm sorry Mrs. Kai. I know I shouldn't be sleeping..."
Mrs. Kei grinned at the young tired girl and patted her on the shoulder. "You are needed in the office."
Charleen glanced around her room and saw that her classmates were all frowning at her awkwardly. "What?...how come every one looks weird today?" she asked her best friend.
"You need to go down to the office Charleen..." Shine replied looking down to her feet.
"Um..okay..excuse me then." Charleen walked out nervously, lost and confused.
"Poor girl....she must go through so much..." One of the girls in the classroom commented.
"I’m not sure, maybe she has family problems."
"Maybe she's just like, psycho! And needs medical attention!" A boy in the corner laughed out loud and pointed.
"Shut-up! You don't know her...and you definitely don't know what she goes through." Shine scold towards the last comment.
"Come on she's so like, WEIRD! I don't even know why you hang out with a person like that."
Shine flamed in anger and charged directly his direction. "Listen you idiot! First of all, she is NOT weird nor psycho. Second, keep your kiddish comments to YOURSELF, and third of all..."
"OUCH!!! GODD@MN!! THAT HURT!!" the boy covered his eye wailing.
"That's what you're going to get next time I hear your dumb comments." Shine then walked back as she brushes her uniform.
"ShHhh!!..KIDS KIDS...STOP!!...ah-hem, lets begin class please. Shine! Geji!! I will be seeing you two after class." Mrs. Kei stated sharply as she slams the yard stick on the book.
In the mean time, Charleen made her way down the stairs and soon approached the office. The secretary in the office had noticed her and waved for her to go in.
"Charleen, it's your mother. She just called a few minutes ago and she wanted me to tell you that she's at the hospital."
"At the hospital!!" Charleen gasped and came forth with her full attention with shock amongst her face. What was the cause of this? "I'm sorry but.." Charleen stepped back slowly as tears form in her eyes "I..I have to go.." she raced straight out of the office and was gone without a breath.
"Charleen! Wait! You can't just walk out of school like that! You!" The secretary shouted out.
She could careless if she could leave or not. Even without permission, she would still have left. It was her mother and nothing was going to stop her from avoiding situations like that.
"So how are you feeling? Better?" The gentle male voice asked Mrs. Vophaski.
"Yes, yes. I am so much better...Uh, is my daughter here yet? Have you seen her?" She asked struggling to get up.
"Mother!" Charleen finally found the room and rushed towards her mom to embrace her. "Mother, what happened? Why are you here? You're head?" her eyes were already watery and full of concerns. Her mother’s head was wrapped heavily with bandage and it looked a bit too painful. She tried hard to be the gentlest while in her mother’s arms.
Momentarily, Mrs. Vophaski broke the hug and grinned. "Oh I'm alright now but you should thank this young man who helped me." She raised her hand towards the young man that was standing aside of Charleen the whole time.
"Oh uh, thank you." She blinked away the tears forming in her eyes and bowed.
"So is this your daughter Mrs. Vophaski?"
Right before Charleen could lift her head up, she paused with her gaze at his chest. This voice, it was so familiar. Her eyes went round suddenly and she felt herself washed away when she finally indicated who that man was that saved her mother's live.
"You,” Charleen pointed, “have we met?" Staring confusedly to her mother and blushing afterwards.
"Met?..uh I believe not. As far as I recall, you ran away before I could even say a word." Ethon chuckled.
"So you two have met before?" Charleen's mother asked with glee expressed upon her face.
"Yes, uhh..I mean NO! We’ve never met mom." She denied quickly and thought. It’s him again. What kind of fate was this? To be able to meet a man more than three times in less than 24 hours? What ever fate it was, it was keeping her shock as ever. As the thoughts piled up in her mind her eyes were expressing it also. She had forgotten the silence that came between the three of them.
"We almost met." Ethon corrected with a grin that spread even wider. He was rather surprised it was the same girl again, yet he was already admiring her. He found it very cute how her eyes were growing and how she looked so shocked to see him again. He could’ve never expected to see her so sudden.
Charleen’s mother had her mouth open, trying hard to read the expression that was on her daughter’s face. For a second there she seemed as if she was going to pass out but maybe she was shock to see how handsome Ethon was. She beamed happily and attempted to interrupt Charleen’s narrow thoughts. "Oh how sweet. Perfect! Ethon," Mrs. Vophaski reached over to Ethon and then to Charleen. She took both their hands and joined it. "Meet Charleen Vophaski. This is my daughter." Then she sat back contently. She already loved Ethon, why wouldn’t her daughter too?
Ethon gave a smile and stepped forward. "Charleen, I am Ethon Sangwa. Pleasure to meet you." He brought her hand to its height, grinned, and kissed it. It was the best way to greet a girl he thought.
Charleen's mouth was still halfway open and she was still caught up in her daze...Ethon, that name....why did it sound so familiar?...why does it feel like they’ve met before? She watched him kiss her hand and as he brought his face up, she caught his wink and that melted her heart. It sent shivers that raced up her spine and she was speechless.
"Ah-hem Charleen sweetie, are you alright dear?" Her mother asked when she had realize her daughter still hadn’t come to her senses yet.
"Oh...I'm sorry." She studied the man in front of her just a little longer and finally spoke. "Nice to meet you too...Mr. UUhh...Sangwa. I'm very sorry about the other day and thank you....thank you very much for bringing my mother here. I really appreciate it." With that, she slipped her hand out of his grasp and nervously smiled.
Ethon had his eyes still locked on Charleen and he knew it was embarrassing her, but he was enjoying every feedback she was giving him. He was rather amused by all the unexpected expressions that lit among her face. "No problem. Is there something I can get you or your mother?" He asked politely and grinned even more when he found defeat in her. She had finally snapped away from his gaze and looked away.
Charleen stared over to her mom with the same question written on her face. She was having the hardest time trying to put on a smile. The feeling she had that rushed through her body was causing her difficulty. No one in her life has ever intentionally stared at her for that long and that way. It mad her nervous and she was loosing her consciousness. It was a feeling that she’s never felt before and the same feeling when she first saw him too.
"Yes, please a glass of water should do. My throat is getting very dry." Charleen’s mother replied, arching an eyebrow at Charleen.
"Alright, one cup of water comming up. What bout you Charleen may I get you anything?" Ethon beamed back to Charleen.
"No! I mean...no thank you." Charleen tittered, as a hard, forceful, smile spread across her face.
"Okay, I'll be right back then." Ethon winked again and soon he was out of her sight.
The few seconds Ethon was gone Charleen stood her spot forgetting her mother was scowling at her.
“A-hem! How rude was that?” Her mother finally got her attention. “He’s a handsome man isn’t he?”
Handsome? Hell yeah he was handsome alright. No wait, Charleen gulped and let out a breath. “Handsome? Nope, I’ve seen better.”
“Charleen!” Charleen winced at the remark.
“What?” Charleen was reluctant to react to her true thoughts and feelings. It was just how she was and she liked it that way.
“How could you say that? He was such a gentleman. Chances are pretty slim to find a young good looking man like that these days you know, so polite and nice.” Mrs. Vophaski stated looking up to the ceiling, hoping her daughter would reconsider.
“Yeah, rich and fulsome of themselves. Who needs them?” Charleen blinked away as if she could care less.
The comment had caused her mother to sigh hopelessly and a frown formed. She didn’t like seeing her mother sad so she gave in just a little to make her happy. “Alright mom fine, he was cute but not handsome. How about that, better?”
Charleen knew exactly what her mother wanted her to say. She rolled her eyes and took a breath before saying, “He’s handsome. He’s HOT!” Even emphasizing it aloud. Believe it or not, she meant it and for once, she felt good about saying it aloud. Charleen was rather content until she caught her mother giggling and already waving her hands behind her. “Come in dear. I see you got my water. Thank you.”
Crap! Charleen cursed herself instantly and already regretting everything that had just spelt out of her darn mouth. Did she just say he was hot while he was walking in? How embarrassing was that! Her eyes grew enormous and she couldn’t dare look behind her. How was she to face him? He must’ve heard EVERYTHING!
“Yes as matter fact, I brought you warm water. It’ll sooth your dried throat.” Ethon walked right past Charleen and she had no choice but to gaze at him. She didn’t want to look at him because it’ll cause her heart to thump harder and she wasn’t prepared to get into that again, yet she couldn’t resist looking at him.
“Thank you dear. Charleen….” Mrs. Vophaski gave Charleen a sharp glare. “You be good now. Be polite too. You know it’s not polite to ignore Ethon.”
“I know mother…” Charleen grumbled facing to the ground.
Mrs. Vophaski smiled and clapped her hands together. “Good you can go on a date with him then,” she insisted unexpectedly.
“What?” Charleen’s face lit with discuss. “Mom!” Not because of Ethon, because of the decision. More embarrassment! When was it going to stop?
Ethon heard the decision and amazement made him almost choke on his glass of water. “A-hem, excuse me.” He quickly cleared his throat and faced Charleen to catch her reaction. She was boiling red alright and he almost felt bad for her because there was absolutely nothing for her to hide behind. He thought he was making her embarrassed, yet her mother rubbed it right in. Nonetheless, he still thought she was cute.
“Well, Mrs. Vophaski, I doubt your daughter is ready for a date yet. She still seems rather young you see.” Ethon covered Charleen’s faceless scowl. It was just too much and he couldn’t help it anymore. Saving her from boiling even more was all he could think of though he was enjoying it as well.
“Yes, in fact Mr. Sangwa is correct. I’m still too young mother and I don’t find myself dating in this life time.” Charleen brought her senses straight forward blinking a few times, smirking away.
Ethon arched an eyebrow, paused his gaze at Charleen again. In this life time? As if, I’ll show you this life time he thought devilishly and grinned.
“Anyways, I promise to take care of Charleen for you. How does that sound?” Ethon vowed out of the blues. He didn’t know what got in to him that had caused him to vow in such a naive manner but yet he had no shame nor regrets. He just didn’t and he was quite content about it. It almost felt like it was because he was attracted to her already but he tried not to let himself fall to that extent.
This had caused Charleen’s mouth to drop to where it felt like to her feet. Her expression froze then and there. What did he just say? He’ll take care of me? No way! She stared at him but the only thing in return she received from Ethon was a smile that seemed to have never ended.
