Our counselling teacher drones on about the all the games she's scheduling for us since we're done with our exams. I am hating her voice more and more. I feel sorry for her, because I don't actually hate her, I just hate what she's talking about now. I hate games. And games would be more fun if you had friends. And I didn't have lots of friends like they do. I mean, correction. I don't want lots of friends. I just want at least one, or two.
Correction, again- I want Yusa and Pruyith. I want them to be my best friends. I want to play the useless games with them. I know if I found better friends, it would've been easier to let go of them. But I haven't. So I want them and only them. I don't care how selfish I sound. Or maybe I do, but I'm just too tired.
I glance guiltily at Laihea again. She smiles. She doesn't see anything strange with me.
