For the first time in my life, I was glad that I joined London school of science. God only knows if my parents didn't agree to send me here then I would've never met Veronica. Apart from being an astronaut, now, I do have another dream and that's to be with Veronica.

She turned around wearing a satin maroon colour dress with her hair made up in soft curls and here eyes looked beautiful, because for the first time I saw them sparkling and I was instantly drawn to her beauty.

"Ve-Veronica?" I found myself stammering.

"What?" she laughed and it was when I took a hold of myself as I stood straight and adjusted my tie. She looked down at my shoes and then gradually up as she raised her eyebrow and made an eye contact with me which literally made me conscious, thinking if I looked okay.

"Someone is looking different today?" she said as she squinted her eyes with a sudden playfulness in her voice. "What's the occasion today?" she wiggled her eyebrows and that made med laugh as I shook my head and instantly, I was growing at ease. The consciousness within me long gone.

"You look amazing, " I remembered that I didn't really complimented her look and that made her smile. A genuine happy smile as dimples that I had no idea, she had, formed on her cheeks, which looked absolutely cute as she replied: "Why, thank you! I'm actually surprised that you are actually complimenting me, " she told me and that made me furrow my eyebrows, confused.

"What do you mean?" I asked thinking what she meant.

"Everytime, you either lecture me on what I do or tell me to study. Do you even remember any specific time when you actually complimented me for something?" she asked and instantly I opened my mouth to speak to my defense but suddenly and truthfully I couldn't really remember any compliments that I had given her from her side.

Alright! Noted! Compliment her more often then.

"See?" she said as she noticed the abrupt stop and knew that I failed to remember such time when I actually complimented her. "But that's alright, " she smiled and looked back at the gate where the other couples were going.

"I think we should also head out, " she told me and I nodded and it was when she gave me her hand and I took it and wrapped it around my elbow, utterly in bliss.

"Shall we then?" I asked and she nodded, looking excited.

In our way, we saw lanterns and lights decorated on each tree in the campus. Music could be heard from the distance and people cheering and enjoying was seen as we headed to the open field which was richly decorated with flowers and lights.

"Smile!" the woman photographer asked us as we stood in the artificial lavender flower entry gate. Veronica tightened her grip around my elbow and posed for the shots while I looked down at her and then back at the camera, all the while smiling like a goof.

"Lovely!" she said and Veronica looked smiling at me as I realised I had gr

ht?" I asked as she wiped her eyes and turned around to look at me.

"I am really thankful to you, Ace. Because of you I was able to score good marks in the exam and you helped a lot with everything. I must tell you everything before we graduate. It has been eating me from the beginning and I can't hold it to myself anymore, " she told me and that made me even more confused than I already was.

"What do you mean?" I sounded unsure.

"The only reason, I wanted to be your friend because I knew you were the only who could help me with my studies, " she said and I pursed my lips, nodding.

"I know, " I told her and for a moment her eyes grew bigger, "Yo- You knew?" she asked and I nodded again. "I knew it from the beginning because remember we started talking to each other because you wanted my notes and help in your studies. So I knew our friendship began with you wanting to learn more from me and honestly, it's not a bad thing. You don't have to worry about it, " I told her and she nodded.

"You don't really understand. I have a bigger problem than this and I used you as a shield, " she told me. "That's alright. Whatever it is, that's alright, " I told her as I took a step forward wanting to touch her shoulder but she took a step back as she looked straight into my eyes.

"I was the one who caused the fire in our school and I'm also the reason for why the Dean took his life, " she told me and all of a sudden it felt as if the air got knocked out of my lungs as I took in what she just said.

"W-What are you saying?" I asked unsure to what I just heard.

"You heard me right. I came here for revenge from the Dean because he ruined my sister's life. It was the only reason I was here. I had no interest in science or anything, " she said and her face had a weird expression which I couldn't comprehend.

"Veronica...I-"

"And now I'm leaving, " she said with a stern voice that had my heart breaking down into pieces.
