MY SECRET ANGEL
By Jennifer Owens
It’s been a week that Christina and I have been in the hospital
and today we get to go home.
I already dressed up in the clothes mom brought for me.
Christina, mom and I went home together.
I just want tomorrow to reach so I can spill the beans out of
Mom decorated the house for our welcome, we ate dinner
together and I went upstairs to my room to rest.
I laid on my bed imagining how the girl with the sweet voice
would look like.
I need to find her.
We are at the frontage of our house right now.
Saying good bye to this house kinda hurts.
I looked at dad and he smiled and held my shoulder.
I smiled back at him and we hailed a cab to the new house we bought.
We did all the packing yesterday and today is the day we said good bye to the old house.
Dad used almost all his savings to buy this house though it’s
small but it’s comfortable.
Dad spoke with my aunt, my mom’s only sister that lives in
I would be traveling to Seoul tomorrow to live with her.
Dad insisted I stay there coz he doesn’t wanna loose me so I
I’ve done enough for Tyler anyway so let me not be the one to tear he and Christina apart.
I can leave knowing fully that my Tyler is safe.
I love you Tyler.
We reached out new house which is far away from our former
We entered the house and I head straight to my room.
I started unpacking my stuffs and I saw Tyler’s picture.
I looked at it for a while and remembered what he said.
“his name is too expensive and special to be called by me cuz
I ain’t worth it and no guy would take a second look at me ” I remembered those words and laughed to myself as tears kept
streaming down my cheeks.
I’m not worth calling your name but I’m in love with you.
I’ve been so stupid you know?
Falling in love with someone who will never take a second
look at me.
Going to Seoul is the best thing.
I’ll find someone better than you Tyler.
“haha haha, who am I kidding, I can never find someone better
than you coz you are my first love ” I said referring to the
But don’t worry, I’ll find a way to get over this feelings.
I wiped my tears and laid flat on my bed looking upward at the
I just kept on smiling to myself knowing that I did something good in my life
* saving someone’s life and not just anyone but my first Love’s
I kept smiling until I finally drifted to sleep.
I woke up the next day, freshened up, wore my clothes and went downstairs.
I was surprised to see Christina downstairs.
“hey” I said smiling.
“hi, I came so we could go to school together” she said
I took a seat and ate my breakfast then Christina and I drove to school.
“thanks ” I said as we got down from the car.
“for what ” she asked.
“for giving me a second chance ” I said and she was “oh it’s
“yeah it’s something, seeing that you couldn’t transfer just
blood to your mother when she was sick but you donated your
kidney to me” I said sarcastically.
“Tyler you are different, I love you and that’s why I’m ready to risk anything for you ” she said holding my left arm.
“oh and you don’t love your mom” I said and laughed.
“Tyler it’s not like that I ”
“it’s OK Christina, you and I know how much you love yourself
and I know you aren’t my donor, how can someone who
couldn’t transfer blood to her mother when she needed it
donate a kidney to someone who’s not related to her” I said smiling.
“it’s OK Christina, no grudges but thanks ” I said and left.
Christina is my childhood friend and I know everything about her.
She’s selfish and only thinks about her well being alone.
When her mom was sick, the doc asked Christina to transfer
blood to her mother but she refused saying she doesn’t have a lot of blood and that she might die.
They had to buy the blood transfused to the mother whereas their daughter has the blood needed.
So tell me, how can that person that refused to help her own
mother risk her life for me.
I headed straight to the principal’s office.
Tyler didn’t believe anything I did or say.
I have to make sure Kim lives the town before Tyler finds out.
I called my guards, you know my dad is the minister of
So he’s got guards.
I called two of them that dropped Kim home the day she was operated on.
I sent them to kidnap both Kim and the father.
I barged into the principal’s office without knocking.
“Tyler ” he said smiling.
“who was the person who sang with me at the president
daughter’s birthday ” I asked and hit my palm on his desk.
“Christina of course ” he said.
“don’t you dare lie to me, who is it” I yelled.
“it’s Christina ” he said again.
“oh really ” I asked.
I went out and dragged one of the teachers to his office.
He seems close to this particular teacher.
I held the teacher by her throat and she was gasping for air.
“tell me the singer and I’ll let her go but if you don’t, she dies and you die too and I’ll find another means to find the real singer ” I said breathing heavily.
“le… Let me….. go” the teacher struggled hitting my hand.
I looked at the principal and tightened my grip on her neck.
“OK OK let her go I’ll tell you ” he said but I nodded negatively.
“tell me first ” I said.
“it’s… It’s Kim, Kim Sertori ” he blurted out.
I was shocked at the name and didn’t even know when I let go
of the teacher.
“why do you keep on lying to me ” I yelled.
“he’s not lying Tyler, it was Kim who sang backstage ” the
teacher said coughing and holding her neck.
“yes Christina threatened me and told me not to let anyone
know ” the principal said and I ran out of the office.
So Kim was the goddess I’ve been looking for?
How could I’ve been so blind?
The person I was looking for was close to me all along.
But do I really love Kim?
I get worried if I don’t see her in school, I steal glances at her in class and I’m always happy when she’s around.
That’s love, I love her.
I’ve seen her cry so many times and some of the tears she
shed were caused by me.
How do I face the person I humiliated and told she’s not worth calling my name that I love her, will she even listen to me?
I sighted Christina and walked up to her.
I held her by the arm and dragged her by the arm to the hall.
The hall is the only place the whole school will watch.
I wanna humiliate Christina like I did to Kim.
Christina is so ev!l.
I pushed her and she fell to the floor and everyone gasped.
” I should have known Christina that you are a devil in sheep
clothing, how can you claim someone else’s voice to be yours
” I asked loud enough to everyone’s hearing.
“you made everyone believe you sang with me on stage
whereas Kim Sertori was the real singer backstage ” I said and everyone gasped again then there were murmurings.
” you didn’t give her the chance to show the world her
beautiful voice instead you took all the compliments ” I said and dragged her up.
I dug my fingers deeply into her arms and she flinched.
” I curse the day I ever met you and took you as a friend, you are not worth being called a friend nor a daughter, you are shameless ” I said and left.
I entered my car and drove to the hospital where I was
I just hope Kim is not my donor cause if she is then I don’t
know what I’ll do to myself.
I’ve really hurt Kim a lot.
I reached the hospital and went straight to the doc’s office.
“who is my donor ” I asked and he stood up from his seat.
” it it’s Christina Perri ” he said and I jerked him by the collar
” I’ll call the cops and file a case against you and Christina
already told me” I yelled and shaked him vigorously.
“But Christina was the one who told me to put her name as
the donor” he said.
“it’s good you confessed coz I’ve got a recorder in my pocket so just finish the confessions and I’ll spare you ” I lied.
“well the real donor is Kim Sertori ” he said and I slowly let go of him.
I let the tears pour down my cheeks coz I couldn’t keep them
I ignored the people asking me if I was okay as I walked to my
I got in and sat down.
“why Christina why” I cried and hit my palm on the seat.
Kim has been saving me, protecting me but I was too selfish to realise it.
How do I get to Kim now?
Kim I’m really sorry please forgive me, I need you now.
I’m already at the train station and I’m just waiting for them to move then I’ll say good bye to everything including Tyler except my dad who will always be in my heart.
