"Hey," I shouted at him, but he didn't look my way. He was looking straight as he walked away from me.

It looked like a movie scene. When everything's fucked up and a person chooses to let go, but the other keeps on persevering. She'll chase him, not minding if it's already causing a scene. But this was entirely different...and complex.

I turned to face him, but the moment I did, I wish I didn't. Because the memories of the night I left, came back as I saw Jano's face.

He looked like the Jano I left that night.

I froze, holding back my tears.

Then, he left.

I wanted to cry, to scream, to shout. Anything. Just to lessen the pain, to lessen the burden of watching everyone go without doing nothing.

But the words left my mouth. Just like my heart who went with Jano.
