"What? Army?" I asked not able to believe what Chelsea told me. We were having some pancakes and coffee in a cafe when the topic about Elliot rose and she told me that he had been deployed to the army in Afghanistan.

He chose to join army.

"That's interesting, " I said as I kept my empty cup down and looked over to find people rushing in probably trying to save themself from the snowfall.

"It's getting crowded, " I said and Chelsea seemed to agree as she hummed in response.

"So where were you heading to?" I asked as we walked past the people in the cafe and out towards the road. It was snowing and the weather was really cold. Chelsea shoved her hands inside her coat and she squirmed, shivering a little.

"Here!" I said as I offered her my gloves and she nodded no but as I insisted, she smiled and took it from me wearing it gladly and rubbing her hands together feeling the warmth. Her nose seemed to turn red because of cold and she used her hands to rub her face multiple times, feeling the warmth.

"I'm heading to my aunt's house, the next block, " she said and I nodded.

"Nice, then see you around, " I said as I gave her a smile and we stopped near the signal waiting for it to turn red for her to walk across the road. I had to go the other way, while she had to cross the road.

"Um.. Ace, " she called as I looked down at her waiting for her to speak.

"I really like your company. I hope we can get together for an outing like this more often, " as she said that I couldn't help but smile as I went forward and gave her a side hug before the signal turned red for the vehicles to stop and people started crossing.

She looked up at me one more time, before she walked crossing the road and I turned to my left walking the other way of the street.

It seemed it was already late in the evening as I sat in the town library reading a book when my eyes fell on the glass curtain wall to find it dark outside.

I thought of hailing a taxi back home because it was too late to walk back home and so I closed my book and kept it on the bookshelf and headed out of the library. Some students were in group standing outside and talking to each other while I looked around for a taxi.

There was no sign of a taxi and it was when I saw an old man stand

as quick to pour some into a glass and brought it to her mouth. Her thirst seemed to be quenched and her senses seemed to get back as she sat back up on her bed and got rid of her jacket.

"Explain!" I said once she looked up at me squinting her eyes and then shook her head as she finger combed her hair and tied it using a rubber band from her wrist.

"Explain what?" she mumbled and crossed her arms as she leaned to the headboard.

"You have just recovered from your flu and you are already drinking, " I said and she scowled. "I never drink. Its just I felt like drinking today, " she exclaimed which made me scoff at her.

"You felt like? Veronica are you ever on your right mind? Think you are lucky because I happened to be walking down the street and I saw your dangling to a stranger's arm, "

"I had my senses. Nothing could have happened to me, " she shrugged and I sighed as I sat down on the chair.

"What's wrong?" I asked once I looked at her face. She had her eyebrows furrowed as she looked anywhere but me.

"Why did you drink?"

"Out of happiness, I guess" she said and I waited for her to complete. "Or perhaps out of sadness, " she said which made me confused.

"What do you mean?"

She turned to face me in the bed and sat there quietly before speaking up "Next week, I'm marrying Simon, " she said and all I did was sit there staring at her face. "And I'm happy about it but the fact that my parents won't be able to make it to my wedding saddens me and maybe I drank because of that."
