Free Hugs

Please log in to read further chapters


Kai or more popularly known as the spawn of Satan only has one weakness - a girl who gives out free hugs.

"Hi, I am Ari. Would you like a Free Hug?"

Kai hates his life; the fake world that he is forced to live in, the suffocating competition that is established between him and his brother, and a father that is never satisfied.

She comes along - first as a complete stranger than as an annoying friend and she gets more mysterious every single visit.

He knew nothing about her yet she seemed to be the only one who could tame him... who could make him sane.


Whenever we lay down snapshots, we see our life through little slices of life and this story portrays exactly that.

I have laid down snapshots of Kai's life in snapshot form. I hope you enjoy these little slices of life!



There are some mentions of suicides and mental health issues.

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 28: This fic has its own charm with the simple writing style. And the characters are very interesting too

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.
