“And that was when your aunt found me under the cliff,,, it’s a miracle I survived”
Brittany reach for my hand on the table, she look so sad, as if she’s imagining being in my shoes.
“I’m sorry, Rora, you’ve been through a lot. I didn’t know you how much you suffered”
“Hey, don’t be like that, it happened a long, long time ago,,, I don’t feel sad anymore.
I just want to find my parents murderer and get justice for them”
Then she pulls my cheek and glares at me.
“You liar, so you lied about going to the General’s mansion just to make money!”
“Ouch! Ouch! C-can you let go?” I winced.
She lets go of my cheek, I rub it gently to numb the sting.
“I didn’t want to get you involved, that’s what I promised your aunt,,, but now I had no choice but to let you in on everything”
“Now, that I know, I will be extra careful and I won’t let you take reckless decisions”
She look outside the window and gasp, it’s dark outside like it’s gonna rain.
“We have to go back home” she said and stands up, packing her bags.
“My clothes are on the line!”
She pulls me up from my chair.
“Yes, I’m not as dirty as you” she mocks me.
Ok, I’m not dirty,,, it’s just I don’t like washing clothes, if my clothes are dirty, I just dump that set and buy new ones.
I don’t like stressing myself, is that called dirtiness?.
“What about my hat,,, aren’t we going back to buy it?”
“Rora! If my clothes got wet because of you, I swear I’m gonna inherit your whole wardrobe!!” She threatened me.
I gasp dramatically.
“Alas! That would be my worse nightmare!” I cry out as they do in the movies.
“Then let’s get moving!”
I nod and rush after her.
Brittany parked her old toyota in front of our apartment and we alight.
She rushes to open the door as I struggle to get off with my twelve shopping bags.
“Britt, you are such a meanie, you didn’t even think of helping me”
“As if I didn’t advise you not to buy so much stuff”
I roll my eyes.
“I need them”
“Then help yourself”
“Meanie!” I murmur.
“I heard that!”
“I meant for you to hear it!”
I struggle with the bag as I walk,,, but God is smiling down at me.
I see a hand grab some bags from me, I breath out in relief.
“Thank yo,,,,,,” I swallow my words and my smile falters as I see my helper’s face.
He smiles at me, his pearly white teeth sparkle as he smiles.
Wait,,,, smile? Dean?
I quickly realize who exactly is standing in front of me.
“Phoebe!” He called me.
My name roll off his tongue so perfectly,,, I didn’t know my name could sound so delicious.
“Phoebe, it’s you, it’s really you. You are alive! You are really alive!” He said.
And before I knew what’s happening, I’ve been engulfed in a very tight,,, life squeezing hug.
I try to pull away but I can’t,, I guess I’m too weak.
“Ow! Ow! Ow!” I wince but he wouldn’t let me go.
“I thought you are dead, I was so sad and heartbroken,,, I was lost Phoebe, I thought I wouldn’t see you again, I thought I lost you forever!” He said still not letting go.
I start coughing, I feel life slipping away from me.
He quickly lets go and look at me all over frantically.
“Did I hurt you?” He asked.
I step away from him and snatch my bags from him, I manage to hold some but the others fell on the ground.
“What are you doing here?!” I gritt out.
“You left the mansion in a hurry,, so I came to take you back”
“Take me back? So that you can punish me?”
He shakes his head.
“No, no, I didn’t know your identity then,, I’m sorry, had I known it was you I wouldn’t have make you suffer”
I scoffed. So hypocritical.
“Yes, General” I said firmly. “I know I shouldn’t have left like that, but I’m coming with my resignation letter tomorrow,,, I will no longer be your personal doctor”
“I didn’t come for that,, I came to make some things clear between us, there’s so many things I have to tell you”
“There’s no need,, it has already been made clear ten years ago!”
“No, Phoebe, it didn’t happen the way you saw it, just let me explain everything to you”
“What is there to explain? I don’t need your explanation,,, I just need you to stay away from me, let’s just be Aurora and the great General.
We should forget Phoebe and Dean once existed,, just let Phoebe remain dead in your memory!”
I head towards the door but he rushes in front of me and blocks my way.
“How can you say that,, I know you are mad at me but just give me a chance to explain”
“General, I’m not mad at you,, you were just a teenage boy when it happened, what could you have done then,,,, nothing.
I only blame myself for caring too much about you back then, had I not cared for you, had I not insisted on seeing you, my parents would have been alive till today.
I caused their deaths, and I have only myself to blame for that”
“My Phoebe listen to,,,,, ”
“I’m not your Phoebe, not anymore!”
Gone are the days I get goosebumps when he calls me that,, now I have a mission that needs my focus.
“You are my Phoebe, wether you accept it or not”
Ok, I won’t say, that didn’t make me blush but I hide it.
“Just let me explain what really happened”
“No! I don’t wanna hear it,, just stay away from me, that would do me good”
He stays silent, then sighs.
“Ok, I know you don’t wanna listen to me, but you have to come back with me to the mansion”
“No, I’m not going back to that place. I’m doing fine here”
“Please, don’t be stubborn, you can ignore me when we get back but please, come back”
Just then Brittany speaks from the door step.
“Rora, are you coming, it will start raining soon!”
“Give me five!”
She nods and gets back in.
“Stop calling me that, I’m your Dean”
I shake my head.
“No, you are not, Dean is long dead”
“My Phoebe, I didn’t,,,, ”
“It’s gonna rain soon, if I were you I’d head back to my mansion now”
“I’m not going back without you”
“Humph! As you wish”
I head for the door, some of my bags falling but I didn’t bother picking them.
I stop at the door and turn back, my face collide with his hard chest and I glared at him.
“Stop following me and go back home!”
“Home is anywhere you are, you are my home”
“Then don’t blame me for my next action” I said.
He frown in confusion, before he could comprehend what is happening, I slammed the door on his face.
I hear him bang on the door from outside.
“My Phoebe, I’m sorry, open up let me explain!”
“Go back home!” I told him from inside.
I lift myself from the door, ignoring his pleas and head towards my room.
Brittany stops me, she eyes me suspiciously and I frown.
“What?!” I asked.
“Who is that guy?”
She gasped loudly, her eyes bigger than the size of an orange.
“Hmm-mmm!” I hummed.
She rushes to the door and holds the knob but I stop her.
“What are you doing?!” I asked her.
“Opening the door, we can’t leave him outside, it’s gonna rain anytime soon!”
“He wouldn’t be stupid to stay under the rain, he’ll leave before it rains”
“Are you sure?!”
I nod, then we hear Dean’s voice.
“I’m sorry, my Phoebe, just open up! Hear me out! You can beat me when I’m done, you can vent your anger on me, just let me explain”
He continues banging on the door and pleading.
“I don’t think he’s ready to leave, let’s let him in” Britt said.
“No! Ignore him, he’ll leave soon!”
She looks at the door with pitiful eyes, she sighs and nod.
I yawned tiredly, I guess I ate too much at the restaurant.
“Britt, I’m gonna go take a nap”
“Ok, I’ll go put my clothes away”
I roll my eyes.
“You are just the housewife material”
She laughs as I stride to my room.
I toss my shopping bags in a corner and fall on my bed with as s soft moan escape my mouth. I close my eyes and wait for sleep to swallow me.
We are kissing like crazy.
Like our lives depended on it.
His tongue slides inside my mouth, gentle but demanding, and it’s nothing like I’ve ever experienced. And I suddenly understand why people describe kissing as melting because every square inch of my body dissolve into his.
My fingers grip his hair, pulling him closer. My veins throb and my heart explode. I have never wanted anyone like this before. Ever!.
All I want is him,,,, Dean, my Dean.
The weight of his body on top of mine is extraordinary. I feel him, all of him, pressed against me. And I inhale his shaving cream, his shampoo and that extra scent that just,,,,,,, him.
The most delicious smell I could ever imagine.
I want to breathe him, lick him, eat him, drink him. His lips taste like honey.
His face has the slightest bit of stubble and it rubs my skin, but I don’t care, I don’t care at all.
He feels wonderful.
His hands are everywhere, and it doesn’t matter that his mouth is already on top of mine, I want him closer, closer, closer, closer!
It was perfect until a blinding light came.
My eyes snap open and I quickly sit up. My hand moved to my lip as I look around, as if I’m looking for him.
“So it was just a dream?” I asked myself.
It was a dream but it felt so real,,,I kinda feel sad knowing it was only a dream.
Why? Why did I even have that kind of dream?
Dean is the last person I wanna see, so why am I making out with him in my dream?
I shake that thought from my head,,,, maybe I’m hungry hence that stupid dream.
I will never get intimate with Dean, not in this lifetime or next, it will never happen!.
Right at that moment, my door burst open and Britt rushed in.
“Rora! Rora!” She called panicked.
“What?!” I asked. “Is that bastard Eric back?!”
I quickly stand up, I’m so ready to kill him today.
“It’s not Eric, it’s the General”
“The General? What happened to him? Isn’t he gone?”
“He refused to leave”
My eyes quickly move to my window, it’s dark outside and it’s pouring heavily, with thunderstorm and lightening.
No, don’t tell me he’s still outside, under this rain.
“Where is he now?!”
“He is standing outside, under the rain”
“Why didn’t you inform me earlier?!”
“I just saw him”
I push her our of my way and rush out.
I open the main door and see Dean standing outside with my fallen shopping bags in his hands, he is drenched and shaking seriously.
“Dean!” I called.
He raised his head, he smiles when he sees it’s me.
“M-my Pho-ebe, you’re here!” He said in a hoarsed voice.
“Are you crazy?!”
“Why didn’t you go home?! Why did you decide to stay under the rain?!” I scold him.
“I just want to explain things” he said.
Suddenly something wet drops on my hand, I touch my cheeks and realize I’m shedding tears.
Why am I crying?
“Don’t you value your life? Do you wanna get sick?” I cried.
Oh my God! Why am I suddenly so emotional,,, I can’t remember when I last I she’d a tear.
“Don’t cry, my Phoebe, I just want to make you understand what happened that day,,, please let me”
I couldn’t stand him staying under the rain no more,,, I can listen to him if that is what he wants.
“Come in, get out of the rain!”
“Are you gonna listen to me?”
“Just come in first”
“No, not until you promise to hear me out!”
Why is he being stubborn,, can’t he see the rain is not good for him?
“Fine! Fine! I will listen to you, just come in”
“Really?! You are gonna listen?!”
“Yes, I swear I’ll listen, just come in already!”
He nods, his smile grows wider as he comes in.
I pull him in and shut the door.

|| Aurora (Phoebe) ||
Dean steps out of the bathroom, dressed in one of my big t-shirts and male boxers,,, I love sleeping in them.
He enters my room and shut the door,,, he looked down at the clothes with a frown.
“You don’t like the clothes?” I asked him.
“Whose shirt is this?” He asked me back.
He pass me a look that says “I don’t believe you”. He sits on my bed with a cute pout, making my mind race back to the dream I had this afternoon.
I shake that thought off my mind.
“What did you make your face like that? You don’t believe me?”
He didn’t say anything, he simply scoffs.
Why do I feel like he’s acting like a child now.
“I swear I bought these clothes, I love sleeping in big t-shirts”
Wait,, why am I even explaining myself to him. Wether he believes me or not shouldn’t be my problem.
“I believe you!” He said.
I find myself sighing in relief.
We stayed silent for a moment until I broke it.
“So,,, you said you wanna explain what happened,,, you can start now”
He suddenly starts to shake.
“Cold!” He said.
How foolish of me,, I left the AC in my room on, forgetting there’s a kinda sick person in my room.
I quickly turn off the AC.
He shakes his head and continue shaking.
I rushed to my closet and bring out more blankets, I cover him with them and step back a little.
He nods and starts shaking even more. I frown and look at him worriedly, I reach out to check his temperature.
“Are you running a temperature?”
Unexpectedly, Dean caught my hand and pull me in, I fall on him. He sits me on his lap and hug me from behind.
“What are you doing?!”
“Now I’m not cold!” He said.
I try to get away from his hold but he didn’t let me, he’s so strong.
“You said you wanna explain and I gave you the chance to, then what’s the meaning of this,,, why are we suddenly hugging?!”
“My Phoebe, calm down, I will sure explain, but I can’t do that when I’m cold”
“But I’ve turn off the AC, I covered you with lots of blankets,,, aren’t those enough to keep you warm?”
“No, your body heat is all I need!” He said.
|| Ian (Dean) ||
I smiled in satisfaction as I wrap my arms around my Phoebe’s waist,,, I pull her even closer to me.
I hear her huff.
“I don’t have any body heat!” She said angrily.
“Of course, you have!”
I can imagine her rolling her eyes.
“You are just being childish!”
“Anything to get you in my arms” I whisper in her ear.
I can only show different emotions in front of her,,,, it has been that way since we were kids.
She was the only one that could get me to smile,,, though I love my brother and I smile at him too,,, but Phoebe has always been different.
“Are you still gonna explain?” She asked.
“I’m listening then!”
“So, I didn’t know why Mom wanted me to join the army”
10 years ago,,,,,
(Teenage Ian/Dean, 16years old)
“Dean, I can’t complete my homework” Phoebe complained.
“Hey, Phoebe, come, I can help you” Javier told her.
She shakes her head and tug on my pants.
“Please, Dean, help me” she pleads.
“My Phoebe, I’m busy, I have to finish knitting this purse before Mom gets back”
She starts crying, she sits on the floor and starts whipping her body on the floor.
I sigh, she is such a drama queen.
“Fine, fine, I will help you!” I told her.
She quickly stands up with a wide smile.
“Thank you, Dean, you are the best!”
I simply smile at her.
Just then, Mom got back, she stops in front of me.
“Dean, come with me!” She orders and head straight to her room.
“My Phoebe, I think I will help you later, Mom wants to see me” she nods.
“I will be right back!”
But little did I know that it ain’t gonna happen.
I head straight to my mom’s room.
“Mom, you wanted to see me?”
“Yes, I have been making some arrangements for you”
“Arrangements for me? What arrangements?”
“For you to join the army!”
“Why do you want me to join the army?”
“You won’t understand now, but just know I’m doing this for your own good”
I can’t join the army, if I do, I won’t be able to see Phoebe anymore.
“If your father finds out what I did he won’t forgive me or spare you, joining the army will be good for you”
“What did you do?!” I asked.
She sighs and look away from me, she shakes her head as she speaks. Tears brimming in her eyes.
“I can’t tell you that now, bit know that it’s very bad, what I did is unforgivable!”
“I won’t join the army without knowing the reason”
“You us no choice, Dean!”
“It’s either you join the army willingly or I will never let you see your friend ever again!!”
“I won’t go, I don’t want to join the army!”
She stands up angrily.
“Fine, don’t blame me for being heartless then!”
“What do you wanna do?”
She ignores me.
“Guards!” She called, two of her guards rush in.
“Keep an eye on him, don’t let him out of this room,, and don’t let him meet with anyone,, especially Phoebe!”
“What? Mom! Mom, you can’t do this”
“Watch me as I do it!”
Then she walks out leaving me in the room, I tried to follow her out but the guards held me down.
A week later,,,
I watch from afar as Javier and Phoebe play around in the garden, she smiles so happily, she look so carefree.
I wish I was the one making her smile, I wish Mom wasn’t forcing me to join the army.
I wish I was the one playing with her.
I couldn’t watch anymore, so I walked away.
Three days later,,,,
“Mom, I have decided to join the army!” I told my mom.
“That’s my good boy!” She smiles.
When I get back, I can be with Phoebe and no one would disapprove.
Right now I should just focus on my training.
The next day,,,,,,
I jerked up and my eyes snap open, my door open and my maid rushes in.
“Young sir, we have to leave!” She panicked.
“Leave? Why?” I asked, feeling confused.
“It’s chaotic outside,, everyone is trying to protect themselves”
I sprang up immediately.
“Where’s my family?!”
“Master Javier have been excorted to the safehouse,, ma’am said I should take you there”
Thank God Javier is safe.
“Then where is my Mom and dad?!”
“Your Mom is fine, but your dad is trapped in his room, we don’t know if he’s still alive!”
My dad is trapped in his room? How come?
I rushed out with my maid running after me, telling me to go with her to the safehouse but I didn’t listen.
I stopped at my dad’s door, some guards are trying to open the door. Finally, they succeeded in breaking it down.
I ran in and I stood frozen in my place,,, I drop to my knees, my didn’t know how to react to this,, no sound came out of my mouth.
I just stares blankly at my dad’s body dangling in the middle of his room.
The guards brought him down and lays him on the ground, his body stayed still and pale.
“How is he?” My maid asked, as if it’s not obvious enough.
“He is dead!” One of the guards reported.
I open my mouth and finally a sound came out.
I screamed loudly,, I screamed my lungs out.
Then a movement catch my attention, I stand up and follow the man in black. He jumps through the window and I jumped too.
He head towards the woods at the back of our mansion and I follow him too. He stops at the entrance of the woods and turn to me, I thought I’d see his face but I didn’t, he wore a mask.
“Who are you? Why did you kill my dad?!” I growled.
“Aren’t you scared that I might shoot you, boy!”
“I’m not scared of death,, tell me who you are and why you killed my dad!!”
“Boy, I’m not here to kill you, in fact we did this for you, boss wants you to have a bright future and we are just here to clear the way for you!”
I fist my hands.
“Bullshit!! Who is your boss? Why did he decides to kill my family just for my future?”
“You don’t have to know my boss,, just know you are very important to him!”
Then he rushes off into the woods,, I would have chased after him if not for the panicked and desperate voice I heard.
I followed the sound of the voice and it leads me to a horrified scene.
My Phoebe’s parents, laying on the ground in the pool of their own blood.
My Phoebe no where in sight.
No, no! How did this happen? Why were they killed too? They were just workers here in the mansion,, they shouldn’t be caught up in this mess!
My Phoebe! My Phoebe!! Where’s she? It was her voice I heard,,, where did she go?
“Phoebe!! Phoebe!!” I called.
But my voice just echo back to me.
“Phoebe! I’m here now, you don’t have to be scared. Come out, it’s your Dean! Phoebe!!”
Still no response.
Wait,,, did she try to escape? That might be the case,, I look around, there’s only one path. I decided to follow the path.
“Phoebe!!” I called her name as I run along the path.
Finally it leads me to an open space, I look around and my eyes lands on a man in black, he seems to be carrying something on his shoulder.
I run closer,, about ten feet away,, then I noticed it’s Phoebe that was on his shoulder.
“Hey! Stop there!!” I called.
The man stop and turned around.
“Put her down!” I order him.
“Lad, this is not your mansion where you order people around!”
“I don’t care, put her down!”
“You are so lucky boss ordered us not to kill you,, but he didn’t say we can’t hurt you!”
He aims his gun at me, but I didn’t flinch away.
“It’s either you give her to me, or shoot me dead, either way I’m not leaving without her!”
It happened so fast, one second I saw Phoebe on his shoulder and the next second, I saw her body falling down.
I lung forward to catch her but the man caught me and pushes me on the ground. I quickly stand up and tilt my head, looking at the direction her body was falling.
“Don’t look, lad, you can’t save her”
I glared at him.
“I could have caught her if you didn’t stop me”
“You couldn’t have, there’s a cliff underneath, I bet she is dead already”
I roared loudly and lung at him, I start punching him as hard as I can. But he hits my head with his gun and I lost consciousness.
Few hours later,,,,
I woke up and look around frantically, I realized I’m still in the open space, I rush to the edge of the cliff.
“Phoebe!! Phoebe!! Are you alright!!” I screamed but I got silence in return.
“Phoebe! I’m sorry, I was late, please say something, let me know you are alive”
Still no response.

“I really didn’t abandon you, I came but I was too late!” He told me.
“Wait,,,so you weren’t the one I saw?”
“No! I was chasing after one of the killers in the woods, I only came when I heard your voice”
I frown,,,,but I thought I saw him that day and he ignored me.
“My Phoebe, listen, I don’t know why they deceived you, I don’t know why they made you believe you saw me but one thing I know,,,is I can never and will never abandon you.
Even if it’s a life threatening situation, I will always try to be by your side” he promised me.
I look at him, he’s been through so much, I thought I suffered. But he suffered even more than me.
And here I was casting blames on him,, trying to console myself by saying he didn’t try save me. I was wrong all along.
He reaches out and wipe my tears,,,,,,tears?
I’m crying? Again?
“Don’t cry, I’m sorry, I didn’t arrive in time and I made you suffer,,I’m so sorry, please forgive”
I pull away from his hold and stand up.
“I-i will be in the kitchen, I will make some soup for you, it will help with your cold”
“I told you, I don’t need anything but you!”
“I will be right back!”
“But I,,,,,,” I rushes out and shut the door behind me.
He has told me everything,,,now it’s clear to me, he tried his best.
But now it is my fight alone,,I can’t let him get involved anymore.
I will send him back to his mansion after I make him the cold soup.
