I don't know

"Nerd"

"Geek"

"New student"

"Doesn’t she have a fashion sense?"

And other murmurs like that were heard. Amy ignored them. She was used to it. She walked outside towards the large tree, sat down and (you know it) read leaning against the tree. Around her, snobby and rich girls still gossiped about her, insulting her behind her back.

Amy still ignored them. She won't break so easily by simple insults like that. She won't be so soft...so vulnerable.

The hunt changed her. She became stronger...less vulnerable. Well...maybe she still stutters and is still shy but that's beside the point.

She was so absorbed in what she was reading that she didn't notice everything went silent. Then, excited murmurs. Something like...

"He hasn't changed"

"Still as handsome as ever”

"Oh my gosh!"

"Eeek...fix my hair, he might see me"

And Amy ignored them still. She is not interested in that. She is not ready to see some boy, fall in love and get her heart broken again. Then...

"Why is he approaching her?"

"Probably to insult her"

"Yea...but he doesn't talk to new students much more than that ugly girl"

"He will just annoy and insult her...He's sometimes like that"

At that...Amy suddenly felt a presence near her. She almost turned around. Almost. She stopped herself. The smell. The cologne. It is so familiar. Something she had smelt before. About 2 years ago.

Something she had smelt in the hunt. Something she had smelt in...Korea. Korea. Amy froze. Her heart almost stopped. She almost stopped smell...she smell it in Ian. Ian. It's Ian. She tensed.

What is he doing here Amy thought "ah...stupid me... of course he studied here...she's in England

Why hadn't she thought of it before?

She (still tense) hurriedly stood up. That's where she noticed that a crowd of girls were watching her...watching them.

She started walking away, away from Ian, pushing through the crowd with heads down. But something stopped her. A warm, soft hand on her shoulder stopped her. Every girl around them gasped in disbelief.

"Did he just touched her" a voice muttered in the crown angrily and jealously.\

Ian never touched a girl like that much less a new student. Amy clenched her fist shakily.

What now? Amy thought

"Hello, love" a silky British voice said. Everyone watched with mouths agape. Amy would have laughed at their expressions if it was a different situation. Ian never called anyone love. Never.

" I-Ian” Amy managed to stutter out, stupid stutter

"Why! Love, I never knew you know me so well...you haven't even looked nor glanced at me" Ian said teasingly. Everyone's mouths dropped lower.

"How could I ever f-forget Ian? How could I e-ever forget s-someone w-who c-caused me s-so much p-pain?" Amy said softly but anger is visible in her voice. Everyone was confused. How could Amy know Ian when she was new and vice-versa?

"love-" Ian started softly.

"Don't call me love!" Amy snapped "I don't want to be reminded of K-Korea"

“I’m so sorry, lo-Amy"

"Sorry? SORRY!?" Amy turned around to face him, a single tear sliding down her cheek.

"You think saying sorry will fix anything?"

"I love you Amy," Ian said. Every mouth dropped lower.

"I like you...I love you. What happened in Korea wasn't fake—"

Amy cut him off “Isn’t fake? Then please explain! You left me alone! You left me trapped in a cave forever and wait for my death! You left me alone...and y-you didn't c-came back...You never stopped you mom when she was about to kill me. You never cared f-for me”. Amy's voice started angrily but broke in the end.

"We will fix everything Amy...I truly love you" Ian said emotionally

Amy's face softened.

"I-Ian" Amy said softly “It’s not always about fixing things that are broken...sometimes...it's about starting over and creating something better"

"I want a new life. I want to live a new life...without b-betrayals...without h-h-heartbreaks... maybe I can live a life w-without y-y-you. I'll manage a life without y-you. I can do it"

Ian looked so miserable that Amy almost took her words back. She touched Ian's hand gently and squeezed it then let go.

Ian almost didn't hear it. It was so quiet that he didn't think it was meant for anybody to hear but he swear he heard Amy say “I still love you Ian...but maybe you'll find someone better". She muttered it to herself. It wasn't meant for him to hear. He felt his hopes go up but soon crushed down when he remembered what Amy first said.

Amy walked away, heads down, aware that everybody was looking at her. She bumped into someone while walking.

"OW!-Amy?!" Dan exclaimed “Why are you crying?" he asked softly

Amy suddenly hugged him tight. He almost pulled away and tease her but he knew that she is miserable. He hugged her back and patted her awkwardly but comfortingly. Amy gently pulled away and ran towards the field.

Dan stood there for a moment while everybody looked at him. Dan surveyed the crowd until his eyes finally landed on Ian. Dan snarled and pointed at him accusingly.

"Cobra..." Dan hissed angrily

"Hello Daniel" Ian said half-heartedly.

"You. You made her cry, didn’t you?" Dan said angrily.

"I didn't mean to" Ian started.

"Why don't you just stop, will you?" Dan interrupted "You already hurt physically and emotionally"

"Remember Korea? What about Australia? Or in Cairo? Japan? Africa? Mt Everest or back in the gauntlet? What about all of them?"

"It's as if you hurt her in every single country we went...Good enough reason for you to stop?” Dan stomped away angrily towards the direction where Amy just ran off without waiting for a reply.

Ian just stared at where the siblings went sadly ignoring the crowd.

"It's alright Ian" Natalie said suddenly appearing beside him.

"You still like her. I know “Natalie continued

"She still loves you. I know it. She denies it because it's true...you hurt already broke her heart. But she doesn't hate you, Ian. She still loves you and you still love her. Go for her"

Ian sighed sadly "I don't know Natalie, I don't know...”
