This chapter, The Elixir of Life, really took the better of me. It actually had me looking back on my younger days. Yeah, childhood bestfriend/crush sucks. Never really had happy endings. Eleven years, I even waited for eleven years, haha. But now, I realized that I was just a kid by then. And he'd never been mine in the first place. Good thing, I finally moved on! And I could just use those memories for some story inspiration.

And the soundtrack for this chapter is Sober of Kelly Clarkson. Here goes for all the readers with 'Summer-Childhood-Years'.

"And I don’t know

This could break my heart or save me

Nothing’s real

Until you let go completely

So here I go with all my thoughts

I’ve been saving

So here I go with all my fears

Weighing on me

Three months and I’m still sober

Picked all my weeds but kept the flowers

But I know, it’s never really over

And I don’t know

I could crash and burn but maybe

At the end of this road

I might catch a glimpse of me

So I won’t worry about my timing

I wanna get it right

No comparing, second guessing

No, not this time

Three months and I’m still breathing

Been a long road since those hands

I left my tears in but I know

It’s never really over, no, wake up

Three months and I’m still standing here

Three months and I’m getting better, yeah

Three months and I still am

Three months and it’s still harder now

Three months I’ve been living here without you now

Three months, yeah, three months

Three months and I’m still breathing

Three months and I still remember it

Three months and I wake up

Three months and I’m still sober

Picked all my weeds but kept the flowers."

I posted the song here because I just felt that I have to. :P Lovelots Readers! You're really awesome! Patuloy akong nagsusulat para sa mga katulad ninyong hindi sumusukong magbasa ng Montello.

Belated Happy Birthday kay Ellabeyb23. Good thing that I'm taking down notes of comments and messages. Sumasabog talaga ang gmail inbox ko. And thanks to my Editor MUB sa pagpupuno ng mga kakulangan ko, like sa pagiging loser sa pagchecheck ng Social Networks. haha. And for thanks4dbrokenheart: I've read your conversations with M. Thank you for the love. I'm offering you my services on killing 'THAT PERSON' who BROKE your good heart. *.^
