“Yes I am fine, sir.”
“Well you looked cute sleeping.” He said with a bright smile.
That smile somehow brought back the feeling of guilt, the past and most important person.
“So Mr. Rey are you planning on staying here all day?”
“Hu? What time is it?”
“Well, everyone left already. Its just you and me here.”
OH shit I forgot to pick up Fuci. Well its not like I pick her everyday. But she asked me to pick her up today. I really fell asleep.
“Umm, Sir if you don’t mind I will also be taking my leave.”
I was in a hurry. I needed to get there.
“Oh, okay. Good night Mr.Rey.”
I went out running.
When I reached Fuci school there was no one there. I asked around and got the same responds. School had finished 2hr.
Where the hack is fuci. Than I got a call from my house phone. I picked up and was relive to hear Fuci voice on the other side.
“Dad, you don’t need to pick me up from school, a nice uncle picked me up.”
“Fuci, I am really sorry, father forgot about picking you up.”
“Dad, don’t worry. I am not mad.”
I could sense sadness in her voice but she put on a strong face for me. My heart broke knowing that she did that for me.
As I was walking back home my mind went back to the time where I was happy, everyone around me was happy.
Back then I met a boy who was soon to be my best friend but due to my stupid ass broke that happy moments.
I first saw him when I was 15 year old. He used to constantly get bully due to his body. I liked it tho I thought that he was cute. One day some boy started picking on him calling him names.
That day something in me snapped, I went there and punch that boy. After some rough fighting the teacher stopped us.
Due to my parents being one of the most important figure in the school they left me without any punishment.
After that I started noticing the boy looking at me more often. It somehow made me happy knowing that he was looking at me.
One day he came up to me and thanked me. Then suddenly we started hanging out more often. I felt like I could be myself around him, he then became special for me.
Just like that we were happy. Until suddenly people started calling him gay and things. Still than I was there for him. It was new to me. I didn’t know what that meant.
Just as summer holidays was around the corner, he asked me to meet him at the school roof top. I didn’t think much of it at that time.
When the school was over I went up the roof to find him. I asked him why he called me on the roof top.
He looked nervous. And suddenly he said he liked me. I could have jumped with joy but something in my head told me not too. Saying that my parents will be disappointed, and I wont have a good life.
It was enough reason for me to run back home not being able to say no or yes to him.
After that incident he never called me nor did we meet. I thought that I might see him at school after the holiday. At the day of the school I wake up excided thinking that I will be finally will be able to see him again.
But to my surprise he didn’t came that day. I waited for two days for him to come back. After that I went to the teacher to ask about him but they said he moved.
It hit me hard. Knowing that I was the reason he left. After that I didn’t do that great. Until finally she came in my life.
“Dad, where are you going?”
I finally came back to reality when I heard Fuci. I looked behind to find my dear daughter smiling happily at me.
But I could feel that it was all an act.
When I went inside the house, it was cleaned like always.
Then suddenly Fuci kicked me and started hitting me with her small hand. It didn’t hurt at all, but for her I started acting like it really hurt.
“Ouch, princess it hurts.” I said falling to the ground.
“Dad, are you okay? I didn’t mean to hit you.” Fuci said.
I woke up and tickled Fuci who was now laughing hard. It made my heart feel happy seeing her.
“So Fuci, who was the uncle who dropped you here?”
