Tree, Leaf and Wind Part 1

The reason I'm called Tree is because I'm good
at painting trees. Over time, I started to use
a tree on the right hand corner as a trademark
for all my watercolor paintings. I dated five
girls when I was in Pre-University. There's
one girl whom I really love a lot. However,
I never dared to woo her. She doesn't have a
pretty face, a good figure or outstanding charm.
She is just a very ordinary girl.

I like her. I really like her. I like her innocence.
I like her frankness. I like her cuteness. I
like her intelligence and her fragility. The
reason why I did not woo her is because I felt
somebody so ordinary like her is not a good
match for me. I'm afraid that all the good feelings
I have for her will vanish after we get together.
I'm also afraid that the gossips that follow
after we get together will hurt her. I felt
that if she's meant to be my girl, she will
be mine ultimately and I don't have to give
up everything just for her. The last reason
made her accompany me for three years. She watched
me go after different girls as I made her heart
cry for three years.
She bumped into us when I was kissing my second
girlfriend. She was embarrassed but managed
to smile and urged us to continue before running
off. Her eyes were swollen like walnuts the
next day. I pretended not to know what caused
her tears but laughed at her for her swollen
eyes for the whole day. She cried alone in the
classroom after everyone left for home. She
didn't notice me returning from soccer training
to get something from the classroom. I watched
her cry for an hour or so.
My fourth girlfriend didn't like her. They
once got into a quarrel. Based on her character,
I know she's not the type that will start the
quarrel. However, I still sided with my girlfriend.
I shouted at her and her eyes were filled with
shock. I didn't care about her feelings and
walked off with my girlfriend. In spite of the
incident, she still continued laughing and joking
with me like nothing has ever happened the next
day. I know that she's very hurt but she didn't
know that my heartache is as bad as hers.
I asked her out when I broke up with my fifth
girlfriend. After going out for a day, I told
her that I have something to tell her. Coincidentally,
she told me that she has something to tell me
too. I told her about my break up and she told
me about her new boyfriend. I know her new boyfriend.
He has been pursing her for a while. He is a
very cute guy full of energy, lively and interesting.
His pursuit has been the talk of the school.

I can't show her how much my heart aches but
can only smile and congratulate her. When I
reached home, the heartache was so strong that
I couldn't tolerate it. It's like a heavy rock
on my chest. I couldn't breathe. I wanted to
shout but I couldn't. Tears rolled down my cheeks
and I broke down and cried. At that point of
time, I thought about the number of times I
had seen her cry for the man that didn't acknowledge
During graduation, I read a sms in my hand
phone. It was sent ten days ago when I broke
down and cried. I haven't read it since then.
It says, "Leaf’s departure is because
of Wind pursuit. Or because Tree didn't ask
her to stay."
