He stood there, his hand on his heart as it did a drum roll. An involuntary smile curved into his lips and he had to breathe in deeply to compose himself. He opened the door again, making sure to carry a good nonchalant face but he did not even had any time to show that off as he was literally crushed into a bear hug. Boy, he had missed this.

 “Oh you dork!” She exclaims after letting go of him. She faced him, her palms on both sides of his cheeks. “You’ve grown!”

He says nothing simply letting his eyes trace her lovely features. They were all the same but somehow so much prettier. The best thing, however was that he towered over her, unlike the years before where she was either taller or the same.

“I’m going in,” She says, before he had recovered and marches in. Kai stands there for a long time, reflecting on the scene that had just happened, before a crash is heard from his room and he had to go.

Ari… She was back, like she always does. But somehow this time seem more different. Why? Was it because he had been wishing for her to come back or was it that he was madly alone for a long time now or was it that this was probably her first visit like this after his mother’s dismiss?

Chapter 66: I finished this in one go. And I'm thinking what to comment, actually reading this makes me think hard. About Ari, about Kai and all life stuff. lol. anyway, this hurts knowing if only Kai reached out to her, by then this won't end like this. But then again, its in human nature so I understand Kai. He is selfish to only think of his own problems but he is already drowning in his own demons to see that others are suffering as well. But I'm happy everything turns out well for him in the end. And I also salute Ari, she fight long enough though she decided to give up and rest in the end. She is brave enough to at least help and be there for Kai even if she is also drowning in her own demons.

Thank you for this one and I hope you are okay now. If in any case you need someone just to listen to you and has no one else, you can PM me. Cheers for more great work Ms. Author 💙
kind of scared to continue reading this one because of mental health issues and all of those disclaimers XD but I'm also excited what I will find out while reading this. I'll comment again once I finish reading this one. :)

Chapter 66: This hurts

But I'm grateful for your final message. Life is precious, no matter how difficult at the time. I didn't end up as Ari but I did have a time like her. It's hard not to drown in our own pain and miss that of others. I feel reminded to see beyond myself.

I hope you (and fellow readers) always take care <3
Chapter 66: I hope you are fine now. Please always be happy.
