Chapter 14: Blood as Red as Fire

"What?" She asked innocently. Isn't it obvious why I feel dumbfounded?! I know nakanganga ako sa kaniya. That's not a pretty sight but how else was I supposed to react to this?

"You're holding a gun!" I told her. Sino ba namang hindi magugulat? At ano nga iyong sinabi niya pagdating niya? Kagagaling sa kulungan?! What a bogus! Autumn is always the sweet, gorgeous and perfect girl, blazing red hair and all. And really, I would always have a hard time whenever we are compared to each other. Palagi niyang nakukuha lahat ng counting sticks kapag tungkol sa mga magagandang bagay ang pinag-uusapan. Plus, she's Daddy's favorite.

I remember that I have always wanted to go to  Arturia University. It is a prestigious school for girls. Pero kahit anong gawin ko ay hindi pa rin ako ipinasok ni Daddy doon. I was still wondering kung bakit si Autumn lang ang nasa Arturia. Hindi ba ako pasok sa qualifications na hanap ng school? O hindi ako pasok sa pamantayan ng sarili kong ama? Well, the latter part was a hard truth. My father is an arrogant perfectionist. And I honestly can't understand how Mom puts up with him. Real love. My mom is kind of a matured version of Autumn. Why can't I just be another version of her, too?

"Oh, this? It's a pellet gun," sagot ni Autumn na kinalabit ang gatilyo ng baril. Tumilapon sa malayong parte ng dorm ang isang maliit na pellet. Nakahinga ako ng maluwag. Kung totoong baril iyon, iisipin kong nababaliw na ang kapatid ko, pati ako.

"At bakit meron ka nang walang kwentang bagay na yan?" Tanong ko. Kasalukuyan na kaming naglalakad tungo sa kwarto. Mirden and Jamie were already waiting for us at the door.

"While I'm on my way here, nakakita ako ng dalawang bata. Binabaril nung isa yung kaawa-awang isa pang bata gamit ito. So bumaba ako ng kotse at kinuha yung pellet gun. What that kid did was violent, you know," paliwanag niya.

What I hated about her, maliban sa pagkakaroon niya ng kotse-- not a luxury car but it was still a red four wheels-- ay ang pagiging sobrang buti niya. Meron na nga yata siyang sure slot sa heaven dahil sa kabutihan niya. She's beautiful, kind, bouncy and a positive girl. She is at the top of her class in Arturia University at magaling din siya sa Arts. She is really perfect at mahirap ang maikumpara sa ganitong klase ng tao. Palagi kang talo. I know because I've experienced losing to her myself. And crap, it freaking hurts. Lalo na at alam mong ni hindi naman siya nakikipagkumpetisyon. The hardest part was that she is so good to me. She never treated me any less but her sister. That's why most of the time, I wanted to be away from her. And speaking of which, anong ginagawa niya rito?
