Before it happened, life was all good. Afterwards, not so much. Everyone avoided me, I was the center of gossip, and all the boys snickered when I passed by, like I was some tainted chemical that would contaminate them if they got any closer. From then on, my social life and love life completely deteoriated. The few friends I had left me, making up excuses like, "My mom doesn't want me to be friends with you," or what ever else they could come up with. I ignored it. After all, ignorance is bliss. But at the moment, I was feeling anything but blissful. And that was where you came in, sauntering in with your softly-blown golden hair, and armed with a smile to woo the nation.


"I wonder how long this will go on..." I muttered to myself, hugging my knees to my chest. I was rocking back and forth on a park bench near my suburb, the only place suitable for peace and quiet these days. Only there could I think in private or write in my journal. No one dared approach my bench; ever since it happened, the news spread like wildfire and basically everyone in the city knew within two days. "How screwed up, this world is..." I whispered, leaning my head to one side.

"You bet," A voice piped up, and soon the body came into view. 'Gorgeous...' I thought, looking up, eyes full of admiration. Then I quickly set them elsewhere, thinking this boy knows about my predicament as well. Surprisingly though, he didn't. 'Maybe he's new...' I thought, hope glazing over my face. 'Possibly a friend?'  I thought, then shook away the thought. He would run away from me once he heard about it.

"Are you new?" I asked, running a hand through my hair. It was nearly midnight, and I was curious as to why this handsome boy was in this park right at this moment.

"Yes, as a matter of fact, I am. Mind showing me around sometime? Possibly with a cup of coffee?" He asked lightly, offering a slight smile. 'Hold up, is he asking me out for a date? We just met!' I thought, my heart exploding in my mind.

"Sounds like a plan," I said smoothly, contradictory to what my heart was feeling. I pulled out my phone and switched it with his and gladly entered my contact information while he entered his. 'Park Oh Hyun...' I noted, enjoying the feel of his name in my mind.

"You seem like you have a lot on your mind..." He murmured, sitting down next to me. 'Should I tell him? Ah well, he'll leave me anyways,' I thought dejectedly, and began to describe my terrifying experiences. After 5 minutes of disgusting details later, I ended it with, "Yep, so this is all from a girl who just got raped last week."

He sat there dumbfounded, his jaw hanging wide open. "I didn't know you went through all of that, I'm sorry.." He murmured, tracing his hand along my jawline. 'Even after all that he isn't going to leave me?' I thought, my eyes widening.

"I guess there is one person who isn't cruel in this world.." I smiled slightly, my eyes crinkling.

//+that was really short and rushed.. herp derp

I like this one! Especially when I can, kind of, relate it. Not that I'm a smart student but I've been stressed out lately, I understand what the characters feel.
