Few days later I was in sorrow, pain and regrets. Regrets I did not get a chance to said what I want. I was confused and hurt, Lily left without saying probably good-bye. Only with a letter that does not make sense. I looked for the necklace it was gone and I look everywhere. I gave up and I shut down from anyone not picking the phone, not opening the door. I ignored Ben, Hannah and mum. I ignored my clients and my work were incomplete and I missed several deadlines. All these night I could not dream about Lily and I tried to. I think of her but I cannot see her. She left me and I could not understand why she left.
The phone rang again it was Ben, I covered my face and I blank the call. I heard a knock on the door I did not answer. The door flew opened and there was Ben. He went upstairs and he grabbed my shirt and he placed on the wall.
'What are you doing, you should be working?' Ben yelled at me.
'I am so surprised you show up, you do have the keys,'
'I have been busy, Lily what happened to her, you need to wake up. No one want you to be like this?'
I looked up at Ben and I pushed away his hand. I was angry at myself and I was in pain of heartbroken. I took a deep breath I said, 'I don't feel to do anything now,'
'Tristan listen I should tell you long time ago about Lily,'
'Well, I don't think Lily is not fully human,'
'What you mean?'
'Long ago, when you in a coma and Ruby was in too, I saw Lily talked someone who I could not see. Apparently Lily is half human and half goddess. Maybe she decided give up her power for you but she have to pay the price,'
'What you mean by that?'
'I don't know she could be alive or she disappear. We don't know what happened to her, there is no point you mopping like this. If Lily was here she should tell you. Tristan stop thinking about me and do something for yourself.'
I pushed Ben the door and I held on the door and I replied, 'I think about okay.' Ben nodded and he gave me smile. I shut the door and I heard my phone. I picked the phone it was Hannah, I decided ignored it and there another knock on the door.
'Look Ben you can't..'
It was not Ben, this time was Hannah was at my door. She moved her hair back and she looked at me. I moved out her way to let her in.
'What do you want?' I asked.
'Nothing, I do want you cheer up Tristan, just forget about Lily for a while focus on yourself,'
'What, no I love her, you forget about her. Ben came here said something nicer. You are out of line now,'
'Me out of line, look at yourself Lily this and that. She left you and she didn't call back and the messages text her, she did not rely back. She doesn't love you.'
I gave Hannah a sharp stared and I dragged out my house. Hannah has no right to said that, she doesn't know everything about Lily. I wonder what Ben said he was right if Lily is half human and half goddess. She has to do something to pay the price for me. Whatever it is I hope I do see Lily again. I will make sure of it . First I focus on myself and I wait for her again.
One years I was came a teacher for university students for Art. The university called Whit comb University. Ben came chief in the station, well he got over Hannah and now he came really popular with the girls. Hannah opened her own flower company and they do weddings and special events. She had a help but it is secret. My mum stopped hassling me to make my decision about my love life. My love life I am still waiting for Lily. I still love her and my feelings never seem to change.
I was cleaning my room and I found sketches of Lily. I stroke the sketches and I admired them. I picked one up and it was a sketch of me and her in black evening dress. I remembered the dream there were two Lily. One Lily was wearing a white dress that she usually wears. The other one was wearing black dress. Was Ben right, Lily is really a goddess. I wish I knew the answers and I wish the dreams came back about Lily and I . I do miss her and I wanted to show her the campus and well I did as a teacher. I have no idea where she is now.
Later on I visited Hannah's flowers company. I was in her office, her wall were in warm light salmon and the desk were made in marble. Over the wall were frames awards and photos of her employees and the work she achieved.
'So Tristan what you are here, it is nice you think of me,' she was swinging her chair and she crossed her legs in flirting way. I ignored it and I decided turn around.
'Hannah I was visiting to see how you are doing that is all as a friend,'
'Come on we all know really why,' she got up and she stroke my chin. My phone rang and I looked at my phone it was Ben. Thank you save me. I picked up my phone I said, 'hey Ben what's up?'
'Are you free now because I want to try this new café across my station, you want to come?'
'Yeah of course I meet you there, text me the address.'
Hannah threw a funny look at me and I nervous laughed and I walked quickly.
'Sorry Hannah I can't stay I am meeting up with Ben bye.'
I shut the door and I ran quickly I can. I can tell Hannah wasn't happy with me. I didn't care I didn't stay with her.
Persephone appearance in Hannah's office and she appalled of Hannah's performance.
'Wonder, good show, I understand how he feel about you. I would do the same,' she said sarcasm way. Hannah snared back, 'Excuse me you haven't help get Tristan, it has been a year and Lily hasn't come back. She disappear a long time, she could be dead or in another country!'
'Dead, possible she is half human, but we don't know that,'
'What do you mean?'
Ben and I tried this new café called April cool café. It was nice and comfortable and relax. The food was great and delicious and the tea refreshing. There was so many selection Earl Grey, Rose petals and Jasmine tea.
'This is great,'I compliment about the place.
'Yeah I know, I was walking one day and I saw this place and I heard popular here,' Ben munching on a brownie. As I drinking my tea, I thought I saw someone getting tea. I saw the necklace that necklace with the blue pendant. I was going to give to Lily. It did disappear in my room . I thought I lost it. She pushed her hair and it was Lily.
'Lily,' I said and I pushed my chair. Ben looked up and he replied,' Lily what you mean she is here?'
I grabbed my bag and I followed her I run and run, but she disappeared around the corner. I looked around and I realised I end up in an alley way. I saw a red apple and I picked and I saw another one. I looked up and she turned around it was Lily. We stared each other from a small distance of a traces of apples from her bag. That girl came in my dreams helping me and improve my ideas on my work. Telling me not fear this girl she is my dream girl and only girl I will love the rest of my life. As I held the apple I know in my heart said she still be here in my life .
