Prologue

When I think back to the best times I had in my teenage years, the first person that always comes to my mind is Ellen Rose. She was a very strange girl, almost as if she was an alien from another planet. But then again, I guess I was as strange as she was, only at a different level. I was a loner back in those days. I didn't know how to make friends, and I usually withdrew from others. My father was lawyer and he didn't have time for his only child to grow up. He always left me alone with a babysitter until I was old enough to stay by myself. My mother died at child birth when I was only three years old. She is currently buried with the unborn child at the local graveyard, near a cherry blossom tree. I usually visit them on the weekends, whether rain or shine. But enough about me for right now. Ellen is more important than my cheap melodrama. You see, she was the first and only friend I had back then. She could make you smile just by simply smiling herself. She sent me gifts and letters and postcards every day. I know you have a confused look on your face right about no, so let me start from the very beginning...


Author's Note: Hello, everyone! New story time! Yes, I know that I left my previous story, "Sarang and Ai" unfinished, but do not worry, I'll come back to it another day. In the meantime, I thought of this story after I read a book called How to Say Goodbye In Robot (Good book, by the way. I recommend it to those who like bittersweet endings). I also am currently reading Lucas (another bittersweet ending) before the school year ends. I hope that you like this story as well as the other one. If you have any questions, comments, and/or concerns, please put it in the reviews. Thanks for reading!
