My eyes scanned through the notice board where the exam results were on. Ace Knights, first position. My lips formed in a thin line as I took in my marks that I had scored. Five points less than full marks. Why? A sigh escaped my mouth as I thought about how I got to eat that remaining five marks. I was continuously dozing off in the exam hall and it was all because of....because of...something I don't even know.

"Congrats buddy, you are the topper, again, " Jung grinned as he made his way towards me while I stared at him lost in my own thoughts.

"Ace?"

"Hello!"

"Hey! Ace!" Jung's voice broke me out of my state and I looked at him baffled by his sudden raise of voice. "Yes?" I asked as he narrowed his eyes at me. "You don't really seem happy for being the student who has topped the exams, " he looked skeptical for a second but before I could answer his question, a look of understanding got his expression and his eyes widen up the size of saucer as he glared at me. "This is the problems of people like you. Just unsatisfied with whatever you have!" he huffed and I shrugged at him.

"Ace, do you not understand? You are the topper. Topper! You have only five marks less than the full mark while the second person in line is one-fifty marks less than you. Do you understand the difference? You are on different level in terms of scoring marks, " he said and that made me turn around to look at the exam declare paper to find the person who came second was none other than Veronica Sullivan.

"Argh! I'm so vexed with you, " he called out and it was when I noticed Veronica standing in the corner with her arms folded over her chest. Minutes later her eyes fell on me and she gave me a small wave with a smile. "It's not the marks that I'm after, it's the knowledge, " I said as I ignored her and turned around to leave.

I was just in the middle of my research when I felt someone sliding the chair next to mine. From the fragrance, I could tell that it was Veronica. But, I concentrated more on my book rather than her intoxicated, mind-diverting fragrance, and all of a sudden, I felt that annoying increase in my heart beat.

"Ace?" I heard her whispering to gain my attention and all I did was to adjust my eyeglasses as I concentrated on my book.

"Are you like, ignoring me?" she asked in an uncertain tone.

"What's wrong? What did I do?"

"Ace?"

"I came here to thanks you. It was only because of you I could score the second position, " her voice didn't really mirror her words. She was expressing her gratitude but her voice seemed to have some other emotion and that made me look at her.

"Alright, " I said with a nod.

You chose to do that on your own. Whatever it is...still you hose to break the rules. So, what's the difference between you and me now?"

"Hu? Mr. Ace Knights?" she challenged and it was enough for me to take a sigh as I packed my bag ignoring her. "You know what? Just forget it! You are just so rebellious that it is really hard for me to make you understand, " I said and she stood up from her chair, aggressively.

"Look Ace, " she begun but I cut her off in the middle as I stood up throwing my bag over my shoulder as I looked at her face while she seemed to be seething in anger. The girl somehow resembles my father's personality a little and that made me sigh.

"Forget it Veronica! I helped you with your studies and now when the exams are over I think we should concentrate more in our own lives rather than thinking about others. I am sorry that I followed you but believe me I wanted your safety and till the very last day, I thought you would stop wandering alone in night but now that you know, I think I'm going to stop following you. It is upon you now, what you want to do. I wanted to give this advice and it is what I did. Because, seeing you score second position surpassing all those old students, I thought you have the ability to do something in your life. You do have the ability. But believe me, if you keep on getting into troubles, nobody can save you, " I said and turned to leave. I could still feel my heart beat beating vigorously against my chest but this time it was not because of what I felt for Veronica but because I was out patience and I was exhausted from talking too much, without breathing.

All I had in my mind, as I walked away was that Veronica would look on what I just told her. But if she didn't then god only help her.
