“So you did not go?” Ari seemed pleased to see that.

“And you did not either?” Kai asks with a smile forming at a side of his lips.

“Don’t you smirk at me, boy,” Ari gave a knock on his forehead with her finger, “I stayed because I wanted to see what you are going to do. You have finally interested me enough to stay.”

Kai pause a little to meditate on that. So he wasn’t interesting before? But then he couldn’t possibly deny that. He was a literal potato, only doing something when he was bullying or hanging out with his gang in the dark alleys. So maybe he was finally doing something good?

“Would you like taste mine?” Kai asks, changing the topic. He showed her his cup of ramen. They were having ramen at a convenience store.

“Nope. Yours is super plain. I only eat extra spicy. Here, taste mine.”

“Nope! I don’t want to die from burnt.”

“Suit yourself…” Ari says slurping her extra spicy noodles making Kai chuckle. He likes such moments really.

Nothing profound just something simple that makes him very happy.

“Kids,” A worker in the store comes up to them with an exasperated look on his face, “I told you already not to sit on the floor. There are seats over there!”

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: Its sad how kai never tried to reach out to her...

Chapter 66: I kinda hate myself for not discovering this story sooner. Reading this reminding me of someone who I used to know. Anyways thanks you for writing such an amazing story.

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.
