"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.

It was the night before Ethon had to leave back to Korea and he tried his best to spend as much time as he could with Charleen. While he was going to be away, he had insisted that Charleen and her mother stayed in the place that he had specially reserved for them. It was a nice luxurious apartment, big, wide and from the balcony, they could see the beautiful lights of Tokyo. Ethon was happy to have Charleen and her mother in safe hands. Nothing, nothing at all was going to harm them now.
“Ethon, something the matter?” Charleen placed her hands on his shoulders.
“Just getting some fresh air.” Ethon decided to stare off into his train of thoughts from the balcony. Just to let out his worries and frustration.
After a moment of silence, Ethon stared over to Charleen because she was so quiet. “What’s on you’re mind?” he asked.
“Nothing, just hoping you’ll have a safe trip tomorrow.”
“Tee-hee, I’ll be fine.” Ethon gave a smile that didn’t quite wrinkle his eyes and slipped his hands into Charleen’s. “You know, I’ve been thinking…” he stared off again.
Charleen turned to face him and gave him her full attention.
“I want you to go with me. How does that sound?”
“………………..” Charleen just couldn’t move her mouth to answer Ethon. Part of her was happy because he actually considered that option and the other part; she couldn’t because she was still trying to finish her last year of school. She absolutely didn’t want to miss any of her exams and fail. Soon she cleared her throat and gave him her answer. “I wish I could Ethon, but I have school that I still have to finish. I’m sorry...” She knew it would hurt him and he might take it the wrong way, yet it was the truth and she only had a few months left. School was rather important to her…or was being with her love more important? For a moment there, she was content of what she just said but why wasn’t it making the pain in her heart beat any calmer? God she was scared…scared of loosing Ethon. What if he changes his mind when he comes back? What will she do then?
Ethon chuckled and tighten his grip on Charleen’s hands. “I understand, but you’ll wait for me right?” He forced himself to understand that she had to finish school but half of him wanted her to go so badly. Facing the fact that he was not going to get to see her lovely face for one full year, he couldn’t bare to let her see his sadness of how her response had made his legs weak. He knew he was going to be sad, worried, and lonesome without her but he did it for the sake of the company and still, he couldn’t let his father down too.
“I’ll wait, that’s only if you’re coming back.” Charleen answered and smiled.
“Why wouldn’t I? Of course I will but I’m scared…”
Charleen arched both her eyebrows not comprehending, “and what was there to be scared about huh?” He was scared too she thought. Guess she wasn’t the only one, he felt the same way.
“I’m afraid you might have a change of heart when I come back and you might forget about me.”
Charleen managed a grin and tried making herself look like it wasn’t a big deal. “Don’t think that way. If you promise to come back, I’ll promise to stay right here and wait until the day you come back.”
Ethon beamed and took Charleen into his arms, “I’m very happy…I’m already wanting to come back…”
Charleen chuckled and pinched Ethon a bit on the side, “silly, you haven’t even gone yet why are you already wining.”
“Tsk-he-he, I know….God I’m going to miss you…” Ethon squeezed Charleen just a bit tighter, not wanting to let her go at all. It felt too good to have her in his arms and if he could demand for the time to stop ticking, he’ll do so yet, he wasn’t able to and that was what made him sadder as each second past.
Charleen nodded with hope in her eyes. She gazed into her own thoughts while being held in Ethon’s arms. It was sad, sad to see that after tomorrow she was going to miss Ethon, and she knew that it was going to cause her misery living without him. Charleen tried to imagine how life was going to be like without having him there to company her. Ever since she met him, her thoughts and feelings were well considered and there hadn’t been a moment where she was sad, because she had him. It felt as if he’s snatched her heart away from her and he took care of it unconditionally.
“Sweethearts, dinner is ready.” Mrs. Vophaski’s voice came through from the kitchen.
Charleen and Ethon glanced back and then to each other. “Come on lets go eat.” Ethon smiled.
The three of them sat in silence as they ate there food. No one was able to speak a word knowing how emotional it was going to be the next day.
“Mmm, this is very good.” Ethon broke the silence and took a bite of the vegetables from his plate.
Mrs. Vophaski beamed over to Ethon and replied, “Why thank you Ethon. Charleen, did you like it?”
Charleen looked up from her plate of food and hesitated, “Um, yeah…” she stared down to her food and realized the whole time she was just poking at it.
“Honey, what’s the matter? You haven’t even tried it. Go on, eat.” Her mother insisted.
“You got to eat. You can’t let your self starve like that.” Ethon stated and soon saw Charleen not even able to look at him. His smile slowly disappeared as he studied her and it seemed as if there was nothing in the world that could make her frown even more.
Charleen glanced from her mom and to Ethon. She had already seen that Ethon caught her expression and she instantly forced a smile to hide it. Quickly, she shoved spoon after spoon full of food into her mouth and chewed hastily. “Mmm, very good” she complimented and started coughing. Ethon and her mother stared off and looked at each other weirdly.
“Charleen! Fool slow down.” Ethon gasped, giving Charleen his glass of water. “Take your time, no one’s fighting with you” he patted her gently on the back.
“Thank you…” she finally answered.
“Dear, dear, what were you thinking eating so fast like that. When I say eat, I don’t mean shove it all at once in your mouth sweetie.”
“Yeah, what were you thinking darling?” Ethon remarked, smiling at her, although his heart was aching and his eyes were teary. His angel was in deep pain and there was nothing that he could do to change it. Disappointed in himself….not any one else but him.
Hearing the word darling brought tears into Charleen’s eyes. It squeezed her heart and she couldn’t help it any longer so she burst out crying out of no where. This had caused Ethon and her mom to stare at each other again. She was just smiling and talking before and now…now she was crying as if there was never going to be a tomorrow and no one was able to feel her pain. Charleen’s mother had felt guilt suddenly for not noticing her daughter’s pain and she was speechless. Ethon on the other hand, stared at Charleen and he was in shock having to replay her sudden cry and his heart ached even more as he watched each tear gliding down her face.
“I hate you Ethon….I really hate you…why is it that you have to leave….” Her cries became harder and she couldn’t help suffering from the fact any more, that he was going to be gone, away, and far from her. In addition, also for all those times she had thought she was tough and strong….well….now she was the weakest. She was bawling like a sick fool but she could care less. She didn’t’ want Ethon to leave and she hated him for leaving….
“No, please stop. I don’t want to hear you apologize. It won’t make me feel any better.” She demanded and held out her hand signing to not come any further. Charleen got dizzy from all the crying she was starting to get a head ache from thinking so much. “Don’t….”
“Charleen!” Ethon cried out and in a heart beat, caught her before she collapsed to the floor. He had noticed her ankle was not well yet and she was still having difficulties. “You’re not feeling well either…” He felt her wrist for her heart beat. “Come on, I’ll get you in bed,” Ethon attempted to lift her up but she refused.
“No! Stop it!” Suddenly, Charleen found her self hitting and punching Ethon on the chest. As hard as she could, wanting to express how much she hated him and angry that she couldn’t go with him. Her hits were with all her strength and soon after, it became calmer and Ethon could care less about the pain among his chest. He knew he was guilty and he was going to take the pain and feel the pain she was feeling too.
Ethon sighed and stroke Charleen’s hair gently. He smiled and whispered softly, “then just go with me….”
“No! No! I will not sacrifice my education to go with you! It’s not worth it!” she yelled but immediately regretted it. Was that what she really wanted to say?
The response totally hit Ethon and he was shattered completely. ‘It wasn’t worth it?’ he thought. ‘Where was she getting at now? She hadn’t felt the same way?’ In Ethon’s world, every thing was worth it when it came to Charleen. He gave her his heart and now it wasn’t worth it? Times before Ethon never wanted Charleen to see his disappointment, but then again, he was so hurt that it just slipped. He loosens his grip and soon after, he gave in to letting his hands glide down to her side.
“I guess it wasn’t worth it huh?” the tone of his voice became bitterly cold. All this time and to only realize that in the end, it was worthless? She didn’t mean it he knew it, but why? Why let his ears hear the things that will carry on pain and if not forever, for a long long time. Should he calm his beating heart and listen more to her hurt or should he act according to his pain? “I’m sorry if I ever did you wrong…..” Ethon tried controlling his pain that grew stronger and stronger but this time, his mind wasn’t with him and therefore, he had listened to the temper among his heart. He couldn’t say a word….was he just being too emotional? No, he was stabbed straight in the heart and by whom? By Charleen…the love of his life…
Charleen looked up and saw that Ethon refused to look at her. He kept his gaze in to his thoughts and moments later, he finally faced up to look at her. He smiled, but Charleen knew that behind that smile was a frown, a kind of frown she’ll never see nor understand. The wrong thing had slipped because she was angry at Ethon, angry that he had to leave her behind and she was going to be left alone, angry that he made her fall in love with him so quickly and then having to go away. There was so much left she had to tell him, express to him, and show him but it was the last night and nothing was going to turn back the hands of time. Charleen wished that if she could, she wouldn’t have ever wanted to meet Ethon so she wouldn’t have to face what she’s facing now.
Charleen was speechless, knowing that she just said something that she should’ve never said. She stared at him as he gave her his cold, never before seen, scowl mixed with a hesitant smile. Ethon clenched his teeth and continued. “Well, be happy then. I may just decide not to come back!” With that, he grabbed his jacket, and stumped out the door, slamming it shut.
“I’m….sorry Ethon….” Replaying of what just happened, it felt as if Ethon had just walked right out of her life and he was definitely going to be gone forever. ‘Now he’s never coming back, you’re a fool Charleen, a d@mn fool’ she thought. Charleen’s weak legs couldn’t stand the pain anymore and before she knew it she fell to her knees.
Mrs. Vophaski gasped and rushed over to catch Charleen. “Honey, you didn’t mean that did you?” she shook Charleen, trying to get her to open her eyes.
Charleen soon opened her eyes and replied weakly, “I said the wrong thing mom. I’m so
stupid. I didn’t mean it mom….” Her voice trailed off and she cried silently to herself.
The next morning
beep~ beep (Ethon’s alarm)
Ethon woke up heavy-hearted. He only got 4 hours a sleep since he couldn’t sleep last night. After what happened the night before, when he got home he gulped down a whole bottle of liquor and knocked himself out. Now he had a horrible hang over and his head was killing him. He grunted as making his way to the bathroom, turned on the shower, and faced himself in the mirror. Staring away, he then remembered he left Charleen last night without saying good-bye and he felt bad. Thinking back and forth, it finally hit him. The pain that poked his heart came back alive. He remembered of how she told him it wasn’t worth it to be with him and sacrifice her education for him. This had caused him to frown and his heart suffered again. He ran his fingers through his thin hair and sighed aloud.
“Charleen…..I didn’t mean it….” He whispered.
Ethon’s flight was schedule to leave at in a few hours but he wasn’t going to leave without having one last moment with Charleen. After the shower, he quickly dressed himself and proceeded out the door. His luggage and everything was already packed for him so he dragged that out too.
~Ding ~Dong (doorbell)
Ethon waited patiently for someone to come to the door. He had bought a big bouquet of red roses for Charleen as an apology. Moments later, he heard footsteps that he thought was Charleen’s and a slight smile appeared upon his face.
“Oh hello darling, how are you today?” Mrs. Vophaski stated when she opened the door.
Ethon nodded and forced a smile. He was hoping Charleen’s mother wasn’t mad at him for reacting the way he did the day before. “Good morning” he greeted.
“Come on in Honey.” Mrs. Vophaski let the door open wider and let Ethon in. Ethon searched around wondering where Charleen was. He sat down handed Mrs. Vophaski the roses.
“Here, this is for Charleen, I wanted to apologize of what happened yesterday.”
“Oh no, that is quite alright, Charleen actually went for an interview. She was called out this morning to go in at bout 8:30, so I’m really not sure when she’ll be home.” Mrs. Vophaski handed Ethon a cup of coffee.
“So when does your flight leave?”
“In about 2 hours. I really should’ve been there by now but I thought I come by and say good-bye to Charleen before I leave. I’ll wait just a bit but if she doesn’t come back in time, would you tell her I’m sorry and let her know I’ll call her when I reach Seoul?” Ethon took a sip of his coffee.
“Sure, sure I will. I do hope she comes back in time. She’s been gone a while now too.” Charleen’s mom sighed aloud.
Ethon stared at her and managed a slight smile. “Thank you.”
“For what dear?”
“For being a good Mother to Charleen. You know what’s best for her because you are her mother, and I really appreciate you being so patient with her. She’s a very sensitive person you know.”
“Tee-hee that is what a mother’s got to do right? As a matter fact, Charleen used to be a very strong girl. After her father’s deceased, she just changed. Her father meant everything to her. I do feel horrible that I wasn’t able to give her the same type of love her father had given her, but I do try my best to be both mother and father to her.” Mrs. Vophaski dazed off into her thoughts.
Ethon’s smiled once more and replied, “Either way, you’re her mother. I’m sure she’s happy to have you as a part of her life too. Even if she’s living without her real father, she has you to guide her just like her father would if he was still alive. I lost my mother not too long ago too, but I managed my ways and believed I could move on because she’s always in my heart. Not only that, meeting Charleen was so far, the best thing that happened to me and I’m thankful.”
By hearing Ethon’s touching words Mrs. Vophaski caressed Ethon’s hand and gave him a warm smile. “Thank you, thank you for being such a good person to Charleen and me. Our happiness was all because of you. We lived in misery and we didn’t know a way to get out of it. You came along and unknotted everything. We have much to repay you.”
“It was really nothing.” Ethon grinned and his phone rang. “Hello, Ethon speaking…..yeah I know, I’m coming.” He closed his phone and hugged Charleen’s mother. “Good-bye. I’ll be seeing you when I come back then.”
Ethon lift his eyes to see if Charleen could possibly be in sight, yet only to find that the coast was clear. She was no where to be found and as soon as he broke the hug he sighed out loud and smiled.
“Please tell Charleen what I said before. It’ll mean a lot to me.”
“I sure will sweetheart don’t you worry.” Charleen’s mother took a hold of one of Ethon’s hands and patted it.
“Thank you.” Ethon nodded, really hoping for the best as he glanced around just one more time.
“Have a safe trip dear. Please call if you need anything.”
“Alright.” Ethon waved and when he turned around he slowly frowned. He was disappointed he wasn’t able to see Charleen’s beautiful face one last time. Taking the elevator down, he gazed into his own thoughts and hoped for Charleen to just appear when the elevator door open.
‘Come on…Come on…..’ his mind spoke. Finally, the elevator door beeped and opened. Ethon’s heart instantly dropped to the bottom of his tummy when he saw that his wish had not come true.
Sadly, he walked out scowling to himself and before he got into the car, he paused to wait just a tiny bit longer. Maybe she might just appear and he could run o her and give her a nice long, big hug…God he missed her already. He looked around, searching desperately and just hoping that he’ll get to see Charleen. Even if he doesn’t get to talk to her, at least if he could see her face then he’ll be happy. A moment had gone by, which felt like forever, there was no sign of her. Unwillingly, he went into the back seat and instructed the driver to go. As the driver proceeded, he gazed out the window until he couldn’t see the top of Charleen’s apartment any more. “Good-bye, Charleen….” He blinked away and a tear escaped from his eyes.
