Farewell
It was the night before I set off.
I sat on the floor in my lovely bedroom, enjoying myself in creating a mess when I tried to figure out what to take with to college. It’s been too long that I could spend my time just doing nothing; to me that was like running into a pink elephant during the past several years.

Yet, for three years, I didn’t come to this room and reopened it once, not even just to look at those little cute collections.
I caressed it, the fragrance seemed stronger. I smiled as if I could hear my best friends Fin and Lily shouting “surprise!” and presented the casket in front me. I still remembered that I burst into tears at that time, and even the smallest piece of expression on our faces could
