On that day at school, everyone were exchanging thanking gifts. Some people were happily smiling, others would flee, crying. Being rejected was always the biggest danger when offering chocolates on Valentine’s. Be it a boy or a girl, it would always hurt as much.

Jeremy gave Kath a poster of her favorite Tv show while Jacob gave him a cheap chocolate bar as a form of vengeance. The both of them laughed a lot over it and people started to call Jeremy “Mister Cheapy Pants” because all his thanking gift sucked as much.

After a long day heavy in emotions, every student went back home, either enjoying their new found love or feeling lonely and rejected. Jacob walked next to Kath. They were both awfully quiet and the silence made Jacob incredibly nervous.

Jacob laid on his bed, unable to sleep. It was already Thursday night. Soon, Kath would come to his place and he would give her his thanking gift. Only, she wanted to talk about something and Jacob couldn’t help but panic. If she is to tell him something… Something negative was a possibility and, even if it was pointless, he couldn’t help but feel nervous about it.

He’d used his whole week meditating and planing on Friday, trying to know what she wanted to tell him. Finally, he’d come to the reasoning that if she wanted to tell him something negative, he would need to eclipse her with something else.

After planning it for so long, his anxiousness had turned him into a wreck. “What if it fails? What if I can’t do it?” He thought. In the end, though, he’d accepted his fate. He’d look as natural as he could and as casual as he’d planned to be. He would give his gift to Kath and then… Then, he would “demand” his gift from her.

Jacob was standing at, it seemed to him, the top of the world. At this time of year, the rooftop was always a little too cold for his own comfort but, at least there, he was sure no one would dare to disturb his thought.

He placed his hand on the metal railing before looking down. A sigh escaped his mouth, making a miniature cloud that slowly drifted away, dissipating in the cold blue sky.

It had been a few days since he had been sick. On Monday, feeling much better, he had come to school to find Kath was still the same he had always known her. She would joke with him and Jeremy and she would have fun and laugh a lot. Strangely, this time, it was him who had become bashful, recoiling every time she came too close, getting nervous when they were alone together and even blushing on a few occasions.

When Kath sat foot in Jacob’s room, she found him laying right next to his bed. His face was red and his breath labored. She came to him and helped him up the best she could. His mother didn’t even bother to ask anything this time.

Unsure on his feet like a newborn lamb, Jacob moved to his bed and fell in. He crawled under his covers for a second and then uncovered himself. Soon, goosebumps broke the smoothness of his skin and he hid himself under his heavy blankets once more. Like this, he looked like a weird caterpillar and Kath grinned. Her mission was finally accomplished.

After all the effort she had put in to protect and support her friend, she felt all her energy had been drained. She sat at the edge of the bed and her hand searched Jacob’s forehead.

The inside of Jacob’s house was fairly dark but there was still some light coming from a few lamps here and there. Kath helped her friend, taking off his heavy coat that had stuck to his humid skin.

Still wobbly, he made his way to the fridge and took a glass that he filled with water. He offered it to Kath who shook her head no and then downed it in one gulp. Droplets of the liquid fell from the corner of his mouth and he wiped it away with the back of his hand.

He made his way up the stairs without so much as a creak. Kath was pretty impressed. She knew Jacob was pretty silent when he moved but even in his state, he did little to no noise at all. She followed him up, keeping him from falling once more at the top.

Random Freestyle Writing Session 1 part 1

Delia was 24 when she inherited her parent’s farm. Her older brother wanted to live a city life and her parents were too old to work the farm. They had retreated to a smaller house they had owned as a summer cottage since she’d been young. Since she was the only one interested in taking the family business, her parents hadn’t hesitated to give her the property.

Soon, she’d been taking care of everything. The farm house was bigger than she would have liked but she liked it still. Mainly, the farm was an apple orchard. Since very young, she had learned the craft of brewing apple cider. Aside from the 50 trees, she had also a large garden where she grew countless vegetables and a peach tree that looked older than the earth itself. She possessed a few chickens that gave her a steady supply of eggs everyday, a cow that would give milk and an old mare named Mini. Mini was a big animal, a pure Belgian horse, strong and steady and yet calm and collected. She was the perfect workhorse for a farm.

Jacob started to walk down the street when he was stopped by Kath grabbing at his wrist.

-“Wait, Jay, you can’t just walk home in that condition…” She said with worry. “What if you lose consciousness again in the street? It’s so late, you might end up laying there until the morning and with this cold it’ll kill you for sure.”

Jacob turned his head around. He peered at Kath from the corner of his eye. His face was stiff and his skin looked clammy under the light of the streets lampposts.

-“What? You’re planning on escorting me home?” He said in a sigh.

-“If that’s what it takes then yes. I don’t think I can let you go all by yourself.” She looked at her feet, moving uncomfortably.

High End Crush (KDrama) Quick Review

high-end-crush-04

High End Crush is a Kdrama about a really rich CEO falling in love with a girl that lives in the woods.

At first, I wasn’t sure about this piece. It’s actually quite short with only 20 episodes of about 15 minutes each. What’s great is that its easy to binge a whole evening with hot choco hiding under 30+ layers of blankets.

Actually, there’s a lot of cheese in this. It kinda looks like a pack of Cheetos. You know, it’s cheese but there’s also the chips factor. What I’m trying to say is that it was pretty enjoyable even if a little cheesy at times. I liked it. A lot more than I thought I would even.

Kath was suddenly stuck under Jacob’s heavy weight. His body had fell over on her and she was struggling to breathe. He was only halfway on her, though, with his left arm slumped over her. The thing was that her right feet and arm were stuck under him. She wiggled a little, trying to free herself but to no avail.

Like this, his face was just too close for comfort but she forced her eyes to wander on the pale skin under his hood. He looked all wrong, his lips were pale and he seemed to be breathing too hard. Sweat made his hair stick to his forehead. “A fever?” She thought. But she had no time to think further, she was stuck under a human body and the mass was pressing onto her chest. With every moment, it was harder to draw breath.

She tried to push but she couldn’t even move him slightly. She squirmed and twisted, hoping to move the snow enough to get away but failed. Not knowing what to do anymore, she grabbed a hand full of snow and slammed it on Jacob’s face.

Jacob was laying on his back, staring at the ceiling of his bedroom. From time to time, a car would pass the front of his house and its light beams would cast strange and ominous shadows all across the room.

It was late, way too late, but he could not find sleep. Even after having ran for so long. He was tired and his body was heavy but his mind would not give him rest. He sighed.

After that time on the rooftop, on a day that was supposed to be for love, Kath had barely talked to him. Now, it had been over a week and on a Saturday night like this one, everything was quiet.

On that Friday night, Jacob had opened the package he had received. The one from the girl was mostly chocolate that tasted good but weren’t really pretty. They were homemade, that was for sure. The ones from Kath contained homemade chocolates too, but there was also a paper inside. On the note was written “I hope we can be like this forever.” Jacob had wondered why she had tried so fervently to stop him from looking when she had gave it to him but he could not find an answer.
