Love Degree

September. The beginning of his third year. A lonely university student drifting through life is about to be enrolled in the most difficult course of all: the course of love.

5. A chameleon in yellow shoes pointed toes inward

It was an unusual name.

Unusually, she blended in with the pale white and sterile green hospital room surroundings like a chameleon.

A chameleon in yellow shoes pointed toes inward.

Behind, metal surgical instruments glistened. My book bag sat beside them.

Her mouth became a soft shape of lovely pink.

"I already know your name," she said. "I hope you don't mind that I saw it on your student ID card."

My name was shamefully plain.

I shook my head.

I saw her blurry as she said, "Now that you're awake, you can call your family."

We said simultaneously:

"I don't--" / "I'm sure, they're worri--"

"I'm sorry."

"Thank you for everything," I said.

"You really have...?"


I was hoping she would offer me the chance to see her again.

I was expecting a further conversation.

Surely she felt it, too!

Instead she glanced at her watch, smiled and said, "I'm glad you're up. I have to run. I'm late."

The door closed, hurting my heart.
