Carla told herself repeatedly not to care about Terence.

But, could she really deny her love for him?

After spending a long time together, Carla and Terence knew each other like a couple. Thinking back to those happy days, she felt like she was watching a movie, remembering everything as if it were only yesterday.

Ironically, the more she tried to resist the urge to see Terence, the more she told herself that she really cared about him.

Though she didn't want to admit her love for Terence, she had fallen deeply in love with him.

The more she tried to suppress her true feelings, the more she missed him.

Carla had to admit that she really cared about him a lot, but she was afraid that she was too humble to be his girlfriend.

Despite of her sense of inferiority, she loved him from the bottom of her heart.

She actually cared about him so much, but she always assumed an air of indifference. She had masked her feelings well.

All she had left was her dignity.

She would rather keep her dignity than humbly entreat him to pity her. Even if he left, she hoped that she would be able to survive without him.

Carla curled up into a ball and covered herself with the quilt, trying to soothe herself.

Still, she felt sad with longing.

She often recalled Terence's handsome picture from the cover of a magazine where he was formally dressed and had a broad smile. The more he smiled brightly, the more she felt pain in her heart.

The feeling of heartache almost engulfed and choked her.

Sean came back from school. He called out to her as soon as he came into the house.

"Carla, Carla.

Where are you, sister?"

Hearing her brother's voice, Carla quickly wiped away her tears, combed her tangled hair and got dressed. Then she went out to greet him.

"Have you finished your class?"

She didn't want her brother to see how helpless and depressed she felt at the moment. After all, she was his older sister who was responsible for protecting him. She had to make herself strong because he looked up to her for guidance and relied on her.

"Yes, Carla. Have you been crying?"

Although Carla smiled, Sean could see the sadness in her eyes.

"No. My eyes are sore. Why did you come home so early today? I'll start dinner for you," she said, trying to change the subject. Carla hurried off into the kitchen.

Sean followed her and grabbed her by the arm suddenly to attract her attention.

"Carla, I have something to tell you."

He looked up at her and said, "I mentioned this to you last year, but you have probably forgotten about it since you are really busy. Anyway, our teacher said that seven outstanding students would be selected and sent to study in the best school in JA City for one month this year.

It's an inter-school communication program that has been running for a while now. Well, the teacher said it would be implemented this year.

The school selects seven of the best students according to their comprehensive performance and results—"

Sean blinked and furrowed his brows, looking at her. It seemed that he had something to say but stoppe

. After all, you are a girl," Sean said as he folded his clothes.

Seeing Sean behave like an adult, Carla smiled with satisfaction and felt touched, "My dear little brother, when did you become so thoughtful?"

"Of course, I have grown up. It's time for me to start taking care of my sister," Sean said as if he were a small adult. He folded the clothes neatly and packed them into the suitcase.

"I'll pack the rest. You go to bed and get some rest. I'm going to prepare some food to take on the way," Carla said while patting her brother affectionately on the shoulder.

Sean nodded, yawning. Feeling tired, he went back to his room.

Carla was busy preparing food until very late. She put the boiled eggs and snacks in a separate bag and packed it into her suitcase. In addition, she gave her neighbors the perishable items out of her refrigerator, since they were going to be away for a month.

By the time she had finished everything, it was already past midnight.

Feeling extremely tired, she went to bed.

Carla didn't hear the alarm clock in the morning; perhaps, it was because she went to bed very late.

When Sean woke her up, she found that it was already half past seven.

The teacher had asked them to arrive at the school gate by eight o'clock.

"Don't worry. It doesn't matter. Let's go immediately and take a taxi. We are sure to be there in half an hour," Carla reassured Sean who was about to cry.

"We don't need to take a taxi. I've asked Uncle Carey to wait for us downstairs." Pursing up his lips, Sean looked up at his sister.

"Really? If that's the case, then that would be even better. You've made a good decision." After praising her brother, Carla hurried to wash up.

Carla realized she had to be careful. Even if she was in a hurry to go, she closed the main circuit. She also checked the gas range all over again before leaving her house.

Fortunately, their entire luggage was packed and ready last night.

Carla quickly grabbed their suitcases and carried them downstairs. She was ready to go to the school with Sean.
