SCARLET

You're coming home to us soon… to me - Luke

That was Luke's last message to me last night. I pressed my phone on my chest. He still thought that I'll come home after I graduate. The time was getting close. The tension in my chest continues to grow.

"Hey." A pat on my back interrupted my thoughts. It was Sean.

"Hi."

Sean put a glass of red wine in front of me. "Here. Have a drink."

"Thanks." I smiled a little.

"We're about to start. You okay?"

I nodded. "I'm just thinking about my graduation."

"I heard from my brother. He's graduating too. Congratulations." He flashed a grin.

I grinned back. "Are you coming to graduation?"

"Yes. I'm Joseph's guardian."

"How about your parents?"

"They're not around here anymore. It's just me and Joseph."

"Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't know."

"It's okay. Is there something wrong? You seemed in too deep. Boyfriend problems?" he grinned.

I chuckled, "It's not like that."

"So, you do have a boyfriend?"

I shrugged. "I wouldn't call it like that either."

"Ah, so the mystery girl have a boy problem."

"Mystery girl?"

He chuckled softly. "You're too hard to read. There are times you're staring too long in a blank space. Like right now. Why did you come here, anyway? I didn't ask you before"

I laughed, "Maybe because this is the only place in Cambridge I think I could fit in. A mystery girl like me."

"I like that." He grinned again.

"Can I ask you something?"

"Go on."

"What if you received a really great opportunity—a job after you graduate, but you can't seem to leave your family behind, for example Joseph. What will you do?"

"Hmm… Well, that is a hard question. If you're asking me, I'll rather stay for Jo. But if the opportunity came like that for him, I'll be glad to send him away. He needs to grow on his own. A family is still a family, even if you're far from each other. Why? Did an opportunity like that came to you?"

I smiled and nodded. "I can't tell Mom or my stepfather. I've been away from them since I started college."

"And you're worried to tell this to your boyfriend, is that it?"

I nodded.

"Well, Scarlet." He took a deep breath. "I think you know the answer to your question. You're just afraid. You have to tell them right away so they won't be too surprised."

"I have an option, though. I can stay with them, work as an intern at my stepfather's company and—"

Sean held my shoulders. "Hey…" He looked at me, sincerely. "A real job is still better from an internship. This is the real world, Scar. You need to grow."

I smiled. "Why did you work in a company before?"

"Of course. Now, I hoped I answered your question. We need to get ready. The customers are coming." He grinned.

"Thank you, Sean."

"You're welcome. I'll see you in the stage." Sean winked and walked towards the backstage.

LUKE

"Boss, we f

more from her.

"We need more information, " I told them. "And I need to go back to Cambridge tonight."

Rebecca interjected, "Luke, but our mission—"

"You both can do this. Just keep updating me."

I brushed my finger on my scalp. This was too frustrating. I need to see Scarlet. I have to hold her again.

"Luke, can we talk?" Rebecca said.

"About what?"

"Ryan, can you leave us alone?" Rebecca asked Ryan.

"Oh, sure. I'll just make a phone call then." Ryan stood, took his folders and documents with him. We waited until he exited the room.

"Luke." Rebecca gazed up at me. "Can I ask you something?"

"What is it?"

"You're not doing this just because she's your stepsister."

"That's not a question." I looked at her.

"Do you have feelings for her?"

I blew out a deep breath. "We're in some kind of relationship."

"Do you think I wouldn't notice? I know you. We've been working together for a long time."

"Just don't tell my father."

"I know, but Luke, what if your father finds out?"

"Rebecca, stop lecturing me." I snapped. "I know what I'm doing."

No, I don't. I was too confused right now. I just wanted Scarlet.

"Do you love her?"

"What?" I clenched my jaw.

My heart strangely throbbed in my chest. My stomach twisted in an unexplainable way. I swallowed hard.

"You heard me. Do you love her?"

I looked away from her gaze. She could clearly see right through me. I massaged my temples with my two fingers.

"Luke…"

"I said that's enough."

"Okay, I'm sorry. Maybe my question is wrong. Let me ask you again. Does she know?"

I looked at her again. I shook my head and clenched my fist at the same time. "She doesn't."

"I said that's enough, " I murmured.

"Okay, I'm sorry. Maybe my question is wrong. Let me ask you again. Does she know?"

I looked at her again. I shook my head and clenched my fist at the same time.

"She doesn't."
