    The Oak Garden Building | Short Story 2021

    As I gaze out my window at the sky while watching my children sleep,  the brisk winds remind me of a building that I once lived in,  wherein I saw, sensed, and were horrified,  an encounter with which I'm not comfortable speaking.  Fortunately, everything turned up okay. My name is Herman, but my friends called me Er, and the following is a story of what occurred to me 23 years ago. I have had a passion for writing since a kid. Now my guardian thinks I can go even farther. Consequently, they help me submit an authorship application and enrol in further linguistic, writing, and journalistic courses. Little did I realise that I'd be given a job to help me improve my abilities while simultaneously taking part-time writing courses to support my income. I was a young twenty-year-old at the time. Too young, yet inquisitive and willing to try new things. As a young author, the chance pushed me to go outside my comfort zone and acquire essential experience.  Pay attention to the sound

    The stories about Jane - Part 3 (Ending) | Short Story 2020

    You could hear a pin drop ...

    Yes, she, Jane was shocked when she met with Bresley's parents for the first time. She doesn't know how to react, either wanting to shout, cry, or get out of that house. But surely, she was astonished, irritated and angry when she seeing his parents.

    "That was my father, was... a long time ago", said in her heart, then her eyes began to tear up.

    They all were started to look at each other.

    What's more irritating was her father doesn't even recognise her, his own daughter.

    Jane just stood there, saying nothing, and can't even look at her father. A moment later, she gathered herself and said;

    "I'm sorry, but I had a thing to do, I am sorry, but I need to go back right away. I'm sorry, Bresley. You had such a lovely family." 

    "What?" said Bresley. 

    She just storms out of their house while Bresley trying to chase her.

    But Jane let go of Bresley's hand and run out from their house.

    She doesn't care how far she walked or how much money wasted to travel to get to her home. With tears running through her cheeks and felt agitated, she just walks, grabs a Uber, and returns to her home. 

    As she arrived at her home, she runs to her mother and hugs her. 

    Her phone was ringing at that time, Bresley was trying to call her, but she ignores it.  

    She didn't tell her mother anything. She goes to her bedroom, locked the door, and just stares at the ceiling while remembering what was happening on that day.

    The next morning.

    Jane came out of her room. Her mother was preparing some breakfast. 

    Out of the blue, Jane asked her mother.

    "Do you miss dad? Mom?" Jane asked. 

    "Why suddenly asked?" Susie answered. 

    "Nothing, it's been 7 years,  and for 7 years, we had to do all by ourselves." 

    Susie interrupted, "but we still make it, right?"

    Jane asked with an angry tone, "Don't you feel angry? what would you do if you saw him again?"

    Things get dissonant. Her mother puts the coffee mugs. Then, Susie continues.

    "Sometimes I get angry. I know this had affected your life; you don't deserve this. You are a smart kid. But, honey, he is still your father, and I still loved him. But we can't force someone to change for us, right? I respect his decision, and if I had the chance to see him, I am glad. Glad to know that he's okay."

    Jane can take any longer, she spills the truth about Bresley, and his father was her father too.

    Susie takes a sip of a coffee and respond;

    "Your biggest gift that God gave me. He had his own life; let him be. Although he hurt you, he still your father after all. Don't let that thing get into your friendship with Bresley. He's a good kid; he doesn't deserve to be treated like that; the problem with your father is just between him and me. Don't let that ruin your friendship."

    Jane became silent, but whatever the reason is, she understands it. She knows her mother's message to her was, grow from that pain. 

    It does take time for that pain to be healed, but remember the long journey she was with her mother, reminds her that that biggest crisis doesn't make her quit just like that; but instead, she grows from that and can support her mom her family. Things might get awkward for her and Bresley and how she will react to her father. Above all, the thing that catches her strength is to never let the past destroy her will.

    How the conversation started 12 years ago |

    There's a quote says by a famous person, "If you find someone you love in your life, then hang on to that love." - Princess Diana. Twelve years ago, I had a crush on one person. He played the guitar at the church. He was a best friend to my other friend, so I'm not really close to him. He was funny and sometimes quiet too. I was interested in his character. I was 16, and he was 18 years old at that time.  Well, you know what people say, love is blind for a kid, and I realise that I was still underage at that time. Having a relationship is not my kind of thing when I was still 16 years old. But still, having a crush is not a crime. So, I kept that feeling until I was at college. At the age of 18, I got an offer to school away from my hometown.  Because I kept my feeling for so long, sometimes when I return to my hometown for a semester break, I will give him a present. Looking back on that memories, it was funny, though. He was 20 at that time. Sure did, I tried to
