In our life…why do we feel like we need to have so many things?
Appearance, career, money…
Well, I had everything.
My name was white, a graduate from medical school and who’s likely to get a promotion at my job soon. I was sure I would be the Chief Medical Officer soon. I was born in a well-off family with both of my parents as a doctor so I hoped to be the same as them.
Finally, I became a doctor just as I had wished for and I loved my job very much. I could help people now.
I also had a fiancé who came from a well-off family just like me.
I used to think that I had everything until…
I saw him… kissing with my best friend on the reunion day.
“I’m sorry, white…I…”
Ah, you didn’t have to say anything. I could already guess what you two had been doing behind my back.
I didn’t feel hurt at all, not even a bit. My head just…blanked.
I could only think that ’you have been cheating on me, huh’
‘’I think we should break up.’’ I told him.
My life was already good that even if I didn’t have a person like you in my life, it wouldn’t affect me in the least bit. I always had a reason for every decision that I made and I wasn’t so low to be with an ‘animal-in-mating-season’ like you.
“I can explain this. Sunny and I, we weren’t doing anything…”
So a kiss didn’t count as doing anything. YOU JERK!
“Wait a minute, you already have me. You can’t leave me like this and you even told me that you don’t even love this ‘plain-as-a-tofu’ woman.”
“No! White, you are mistaken. I love you so much.”
I thought you like my money more than me.
“Enough already…I’m tired to say this again. I caught you red handed like this and you still have the courage to lie straight to my face. We should treat our engagement as a thing that will never going to happen. Oh!, I will send the betrothal’s gift to your house later.”
I walked away thinking that I couldn’t take it anymore.
I didn’t feel a thing.
Not even one bit.
I was thinking that backing off was a right thing to do. It’s the best way out.
“White, wait for me please!”
I didn’t hear anything. Quickened my step, I stopped at the crossroad and waited for the traffic light to change.
I suddenly fell down by this mysterious force behind my back. When I got a glimpse of something by instinct, I could see my best friend standing right there. Someone who had been friends with me for a long time.
Why, I had already backed off. What did you want more from me?
Hi, thank you for reading this. First, I should tell you the purpose of this blog and that is to help me improve my writing skill as you can see that you will spot grammatical error everywhere or wrong choice of vocabulary. Some of you will say “why don’t you get yourself an editor and learn from them” but I want to edit and proofread it by myself before that (Noted that English is my second language). My English are not that good but I hope I will get better at it. See you next chapter!
