A Sad Smile

[Description: When you can see that your friend is miserable because of someone else, what can you say?]

** ENGLISH **

Hey. Thanks for meeting me here.
(Nervous chuckle) I really don’t know how to say what I want to say…

I can tell that you’re not happy…
I guess you already know what I’m talking about, don’t you?
It’s pretty obvious to the rest of your friends too.
In the morning, your eyes are red, and there are dark rings under them.
And we can hear you crying in the bathroom, even when you’re trying to be silent…
I- No, we all care about you. I just want you to remember that.

Our Home

[Description: What happens when the world goes dark? I can’t bring myself to return to the home we shared.]

** ENGLISH **

In this house is where we made so many memories.
It was where we cooked and ate together.
You said that you’d become the best chef.
It was where we watched those adventure movies we both loved so much.
I said that we’d travel the world like that someday.
Best of all, it was where we promised to get married.
You got down on one knee and asked me to marry you.
Of course, I said yes.
But now you’re gone.
I put all of our pictures in an album.
All your clothes are left in the closet.
I wish every night for you to return.
But you never can.
A single picture of you alone sits in this house, next to the altar and incense.
Our home holds all of the memories we made together.
But it’s so hard for me to be here when you’re gone.
I want to leave, but I don’t want to forget my memories.
So please…
Please come back to my side…
Please return home.
