Going to school required too much effort from me when I was studying in high school especially when I started. During my first year, the railway transit was still under construction. It means, traffic was at its maximum.
One morning, I traveled to school from our house. It was five o’ clock, and definitely, it was stark dark.
My spirit was still asleep even though my physical body was trying to combat drowsiness. I wished I could go back to bed and sleep.
Until I saw her.
I couldn’t tell if she’s a Korean or a Chinese. Her eyes were the same as mine. She’s fighting to stay awake. But hers were very attractive. She’s not looking at me, but she seemed telling me something. Her eyes were like the ocean calling out a captive. I couldn’t help but to stare at her. She never repaid my glances, but having that gave me peace. I might not survive if she would ever look at me.
I did not move in the entire journey. She’s the most wonderful sight I’ve ever seen in my first year.
That day, I told myself I would write a story about her. Maybe, something that’s fictional or maybe something that I assumed that was true. It took me many years to write something about her.
The girl who have the most attractive eyes I’ve ever seen might not be able to read this, but I just hope I’ll be able to see her again.
And that’s my New Year’s wish.
