Chapter 76: Chapter 32: Memories

"Hey, Sugi. Did you know the knowledge cube told the absolute truth about a person? It's said that that the cube holds every thought the person has ever made, the sounds they heard, the word they ever spoke, the feeling they ever had, and what they ever saw throughout their life up to the very moment the cube is viewed. Pretty amazing isn't it?"

"Huh? That's interesting. Would you ever allow me to see your cube one day?"

"Who knows, but I'm someone that likes to keep somethings a secret."

"Huh, we too I guess."

"We're turning 11 soon. Do you know what you want to do?"

Sugi and I were sitting on the roof of her house as the stars of the night drifts in the night. The wind blows in the cold to add a beautiful freeze. Our legs were spread a little open in the front sliding down the rooftop as our hands firmly land on the ridge of the roof holding our slightly bent backward back as our heads look upwards. The wind was nice too, dragging our hair backward in the air.

"Hum…"

Sugi put her second finger on her right hand up to the chin.

...

Sugi tilts her head a little to the left before moving it back. She opens her mouth wanting to say something but stopped. She looked over before speaking again.

"I want to be with you."

"It's a promise; I will keep."

I responded with a smile before continuing…

"Be with you is too my dream, be with you, the one I dear. Let us be…"

I was running towards the staircase building in front of us. Wall surround me like a maze as the monster rain in. I knew this was the end for me. If hear me, Sugi, listen to me for a few things...

'Tell my parents I love them.'

'Tell them I was happy and I am at peace.'

The view was blurry as if seeing through a bathroom glass door as Anna began to cry.

'For these years I was with you, I was happy… I broke our promise, I am sorry… I wished to be with you, but it doesn't look to be possible.'

'As a final gift, I give you my cube. You can burn it, kill it or do whatever. As an exchange for my small secrets, please escape…'

'Escape and have a good life with someone else, if it hurts, forget about and leave me somewhere, I won't mind.'

I want you to know something, even if you forget me…

"Sugi, I really did love you."

The world went blank for seconds before I opened my eyes and came to my senses. I was looking at her body, just a little in front of me on the floor. It was raining; thunder was loud too. I screamed to the heavens above before I quite down to speak.

"I love you too."

I kissed her lips one more time. On that day, I made a one day I made a one-way promise.

"I will escape…"

"Why couldn't you be more selfish?"

"I wanted to do what you wanted…"

"I wished I could have given you a more than what I had"

"I wished you would ask me to do things all the time."

"I wish you could have made me hate you."

"I wish we could have hated each other and never came…"

"So that I could still see you even if I had to hate you."

'You could have asked for help.'

The side of my mouth pulls downwards; it almost feels as if it was about to rip off.

It was just as one of her favorite characters once said, "the dead don't talk."
