Hello my loyal readers! Or are you not? Well I don't care. As long as you didn't mess with me then i'm fine thank you.

Anyway..some people did ask me when i'm going to update this story. But I can't really tell when. So, here I am to apologize for the late update. I'm sorry.

But like I said, I won't stop writing until I finish this story. I won't let my work left undone okay.

Okay. You can read this chapter now.

Oh! By the way..please inform me if you found any typos or grammar errors in this chapter. That's would be so helpful.


Camellia Waters' POV

"Ryder, did you come here a lot? I see you are very familiar with this park and people around here. Well..except for that ice cream guy I guess?" I asked Ryder, resisting to laugh at his earlier reaction

He blushed a little at my last question before letting out an awkward chuckle while scratching the back of his neck.

"Actually I had met that guy last week when I went to his stall to buy an ice cream right after I moved back here. I came to this park and bought ice cream from that stall for the fourth time already. But I didn't know that he is a gay. No wonder why he kept staring while smirking at me the whole time, every time I went to his stall."

I let out a full laugh when I heard that. But then I realised something.

"Wait..move back?"

"Yeah. Actually I am from here. But I left my parents and lived with my grandparents six years ago. And last week I came back here to move in with my parents again."

"Oh. You must have been coming to this park a lot before you left your parents. Am I right?" I guessed, giving him a smile.

"Y-Yeah.." he stuttered before continued.

"What about you? Is this your first time coming to this park?" he awkwardly asked me with a forced smile making my smile dropped.

I have touched a sensitive subject didn't I? I frowned at the thought but changed it into smile again seconds after not wanting him to notice.

"Yup. This my first time coming here. I love to go to a park. But this isn't the park that I usually went to. If I want to enjoy my time alone, I would go to the park near my house." I said with a small smile on my face as I remembered the memories with my family at the park that I usually went to.

I shook my head a little and inhaled then exhaled not wanting to shed any tear in front of Ryder.

A second passed, I turned towards Ryder giving a wide grin as I thought about something I loved to do.

"How about we go grab some food now?"

That was the only thing I know when I was stress or sad or nervous or depressed. Eat.

He chuckled at my excitement before nodding a little.

"Okay. Let's go then." he said, getting up from the bench before pulling me up to him with a little too much force making me stumbled then crushed to his hard body.

I yelped.

"I'm sorry. You really need to eat more protein." he mumbled at the last part but I heard it nonetheless.
