After I took a bath, I slumped on my bed and flipped the bundle of papers Lawrence gave me.
August XX 20XX
I went to Izu island to close the deal of Casa Montaña and bumped into a tall, gorgeous woman.
My eyes bulged. T-this is!
A copy of his DIARY?!
I scanned the pages. Judging from the random dates, I bet Lawrence only gave me Lance’s selected diary pages.
She was homeless, so I took pity and gave her my brother’s reserved room.
I regretted that.
I laughed despite the rejection.
August XX 20XX
My sister got herself injured, so we rushed in New Haven. Then I finally found who my brother’s mystery lover was. It turned out, she was the peacock girl who was stalking me from Las Vegas to Izu Island.
Also, the homeless girl was there.
I didn’t know she knew my sister.
It didn’t escape my notice that she likes me.
Must be a damsel in distress syndrome.
She gave me her name, Em-Em.
September XX 20XX
It’s our birthday today. I wasn’t excited since sis wasn’t here.
Though I was shocked to find Em and Zoe in our house and even more surprised that Em could play the violin so beautifully that I embarrassingly lost myself.
I didn’t understand why she ran off, though.
Even if I didn’t like her, it didn’t mean that I hated her, so I was worried and wanted to chase after her, but Jennifer held my arm.
I forgot everything else when she finally said yes.
Best birthday gift ever!
While my parents and brother were not thrilled with it. I didn’t know why they’re so against with Jennifer. She’s a sweet and kind girl. Like sister.
But then I felt guilty when I saw Em’s gift.
It was a potpourri with a panda clumsily stitched on it.
Did she do it herself?
The embroidery was wrongly done.
I love the smell, though.
Is it her smell?
November XX 20XX
Jennifer and I were together for a month now.
My friends helped me with arranging a romantic, cozy dinner under a large tree at a park near our school. I cooked her favorites and bought her this ring she so wanted for days now.
I was a bit nervous, so I brought out my Pandem. The potpourri Em gave me.
I named it with the combination of Em and panda.
Corny, I know.
I sniffed it to make me feel relax.
It always worked like magic.
Then she came.
Pretty as always.
Full of smiles, showing her dimples.
Her smile grew wider as I handed her the ring.
She kissed me in happiness until she saw our food.
It turned out, ever since we’ve gotten together, she wanted to cut down carbs.
So, guess whose pets were having the best meal of their life today?
December XX 20XX
It was two years since Jennifer and I were together.
It wasn’t a smooth relationship since we have our differences, and I was always busy these past few months. But we managed to talk things through.
I was happy when my sister said to bring Jennifer home to spend Christmas eve.
I got to say. It took a whole week of convincing for Jennifer’s family to agree to let their daughter spend Christmas eve in our home.
After the hearty, somewhat awkward dinner, I accompanied Jennifer back to her place.
When I returned home, my sister said she also didn’t like her.
I couldn’t say I was disappointed, although my sister didn’t ask to break up much to my relief.
I somehow hoped sis could see how sweet Jennifer is . . .
She might be spoiled, but she had the right to be spoiled by me.
She might act all rude and childish, but that’s how she is.
She might argue with me on a lot of things that she’s not contented with, and she always tells me what to do, and . . .
Sigh . . .
I’ll stop writing now.
July XX 20XX
Jennifer and I were back together again. She compromised that she would change and be more considerate towards me.
But I didn’t mind at all.
Just that, the way she stared at me reminded me so much of my sister that I couldn’t stand her being all pleading and sad like that.
I knew I still like her, so I agreed to get back together.
March XX 20XX
I lost count of how many times Jennifer and I broke up and gotten back, but this was the last time.
It was nearing graduation, and she was furious when I didn’t follow her command to take business management course in college.
She wanted me to put up a company of my own, saying it’s not enough just to be a celebrity and do gigs and investments here and there.
I understand her worry.
She’s only concerned about our future, right?
She’s anxious and afraid that I couldn’t give her the life she wanted.
The life she deserves.
But I didn’t want to study business, for I wanted to pursue cooking for the obvious reason that I love to cook.
She went wild.
Thus, I suggested a truce.
After I graduate from culinary, I’ll take the business course at Harvard.
She wasn’t happy.
She stomped her feet and walked out on me.
Well, I guess that’s that then.
June XX 20XX
I was very excited to start my university life in Artem.
They’re the best when it comes to any arts.
This was also where my sister graduated.
Though a little sad about my brother. He chose Zephyr Academy since he was pretty much into computers.
Good thing our school was just a few hundred meters apart. I could visit him anytime.
We’re also staying in my sister’s condo in Azure Sky, but it’s just Lawrence and me at the moment since my beautiful, kind, caring sister was kidnapped and being monopolized by a demon she called a husband.
I sniffed my Pandem and entered the University’s hall, and Jennifer’s pretty face greeted me.
Honestly, I didn’t know she’d be attending Artem University. She always said she’d be enrolling in Julliard’s.
Some parts of me still like her, but the other parts didn’t want anything to do with her.
I don’t want too much drama in my life right now since I’m very busy with our investments and sidelines. Not to mention school.
I hope she won’t approach me and plead to get back together because, honestly, I don’t know what I’d do.
I can’t stand seeing her sad.
. . .
. . .
I closed my eyes after some time of staring on the papers without blinking.
Now I know why Lawrence was begging me to save his brother.
Lance really needs saving!
I could not believe I fell in love with a guy that had severe sister complex.
I grabbed my phone and dialed a number.
Violet answered on the other side of the phone.
“Contact Artem. Tell them I want to become a music teacher there.”
“. . .”
“. . .”
“Do it now.”
I ended the call, not letting Violet retort back.
I gave up and did not pursue because I thought he would be happy with that girl.
But this time for sure.
I will have him for myself!
