Carl: Yeah.... I guess.
Bridget: Hmmm? What's wrong?
Carl: Sorry. I just remembered her.
Bridget: Alex?
Carl: Yeah...sorry.
Bridget: Seriously. You can't find her? No idea at all?
Carl: Yeah, no idea.
Bridget: She's quite mean leaving you like this pondering and hearbroken.
Carl: Well, she did donate her eyes to me. If she were to tell me, I would not agreed to it. So I think I know why she's not ready to see her yet.
Bridget: But, the drawing that you showed me, the picture of her, she's really pretty.
Carl: I don't even know if my drawing and her look alike. I just felt her fave and draw it.
Bridget: Felt?
Carl: Yeah, I can't see back then so, I used my imagination and my hands to touch her face and roughly figure out.
Bridget: Oh wow. That's super cool.
Carl: It is, but....I don't know if she really looks like that.
Bridget: You don't have a picture of her?
Carl: Nope. Only the drawing.
Bridget: Okay.
Carl: Well, forget about the past. Let's talk about you.
So Carl and Bridget talk for a long time. Their relationship are getting closer. Carl went back home and to his suprise, Lee was already at his house sitting at the couch.
Carl: Lee?
Carl's mum: He was here for quite sometime already.
Carl: Why didn't you call me?
Lee: Nah, wasn't important. Anyway, where have you been?
Carl: Been chilling.
Lee: With?
Carl: Um...with..Bridget.
Lee: A girl?
Carl: Yeah...why?
Lee: Um...just wondering...what? Have you gotten over Alex already?
Carl: Lee, she's just a friend. Nothing much more than that.
Lee: I'm hearing news.
Carl: What news?
Lee: You're always out with her.
Carl: Oh come on. Do you think it's even easy to forget about her?
Lee: Carl...
Carl: Look Lee, how long have I have to stand being this way? She's not calling, no nothing from her. I don't even know if she's still out there. If she cares, she will call...but no...Nothing from her.
Lee: Fine, if you think it's like this. Don't forget who was the one making you see today.
Then Lee just took of his jacket and went out of the door. Then at Phil, Phil told Alex what happened.
Alex: Oh.
Phil: Don't you wanna tell him now?
Alex: I think he should go for her.
Phil: What?
Alex: I don't think I want this relationship anymore.
Phil: Why?
Alex: I...seriously can't face him. Each time I think about it, it makes me shivers and it's because of me...I'm always delaying. Like when I say to myself I'm gonna see him today, I always change my mind.
Phil: Alex?
Alex: It's okay Phil. He has his own life. me write my last letter to them.
So Phil follow Alex to her room. And Alex told whatever it is that she wanna write to Carl and Lee. The next day, Lee open his locker and there it was another letter from Alex.
Alex's letter: Hi. I'm writting this letter is to Lee and my dear Carl. Carl, I heard that you found someone else. I'm so happy for you. Really. I feel like I and you is the end. The relationship with you and me just won't work out anymore. I donate that eye just to let you know, I'll always love you. And Lee, please, don't get mad at this. I don't know when will I be ready to see you all but I promise we will someday meet up again. I know what I'm writting now is so sudden. But....I really really, miss you guys too. Give me time. May Carl, you find happiness. Same for you too Lee. From: Alex.
Carl also read it. Tears were forming from his eyes. He could not believe it. Alex is dumping him? But he can't get mad because the eye still belongs to her.
Lee: Seriously?
Carl: Well, if she says its the end, its the end.
Lee: But Carl. This is just a letter.
Carl: Yeah, a letter from her!
Carl with anger just push Lee aside and jsut walk away. Lee was standing there, and once again he can't believe what is happening.

Work, sad, breakdown, depression, failure.

Hey guys. It's finally been 3 months working here. The last month, I felt that I'm not really doing good in this company already. Probably and obviously duh, I'm not good in PAPER WORKS!!!Today I hate a meeting with my boss about my appraisal. And guess what? Yeah, they're gonna extend my month. One more month and see how is my performance. Well, I really don't understand this. Why am I not good at anything? All I know what I learn here is my typing skills getting damn good. That's what Jennifer also said.But anyhow, now, searching and searching like a mad dog for work. It's not to say I won't try my best staying in this company. I will try...but seriously, making them accepting me here is a little hard. I thought that I did the best I could. Did almost everything that they want me to do. I know that they can't accept my performances...but I really wanna suggest to them I'm an animation student, can't they try to excuse me a little? Sigh, I can learn but needs time like anything.But right now, I can see that there's no hope for me. The year of the tiger isn't really going well for me anyway. Which I thought it will. Yesterday also heard another thing from Afif saying that he is joining aircraft position. Military service which he applied 7 years ago and now finally they called him. And he has to go which means, if he happens to really be accepted, it is bye bye from my band and him and me too.Shuk also going away for studies. EVERYONE IS LEAVING!! Why can't I be like this? Seriously!!!I'm sick of this shit.I do good, nor I do bad, I'm still suck in this shit hole. I can't move forward...salary always around more than RM900 and lesser than RM2000. It can never go up even a RM100. I don't know why animation companies are so hard to get through to them.MAN!! I need toooooooooooooooooooooo finnnnnnnnnnndddddddddddddd worrrrrrrrrkkkkkkkkkkk sssssssooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnn!!! And I like this guy which happens to turn me down on Sat which makes me sooooooooooo sad and I'm breaking down now. It may seems this guy will leave me in darkness for a few weeks. I love him so much but he doesn't show much interest. I HATE HIM DOING THIS TO ME!! And Afif, sometimes I wonder what does he treats me as? He wants to be my guy but...always gives excuses to me. And also yesterday when I was crying after he told me about the military stuff, I hugged him and as though I don't want to let him go. I just don't want another friend of mine go. I can't bare to let another one go just like that. I also love Afif but our stories are just so sad to even begin with. I and him been loving each other for 6 years...always denying but now we know it so clearly but he can't be with me because of financial and he is not capable yet.But anyhow, I wish I can get that dream guy of mine to accept me. My last move. If this won't work, then I can say, no more hope. Anyone who can help me find a full time in art industry, please do let me know. Thanks!! PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE SOMEONEEEEEEEEEEEEEE SAVEEEEEEEE MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!~~~~~~~~~~~
