Jergen Camince Carbonell. Matunong ang pangalan sa unibersidad. Sikat at kinikilalang 'terror' at walang sinasanto-may it be in campus premises or not. Student Council President and Straight A student. She doesn't need anyone or anything to prove her worth. Matapang, matabil ang dila, at madalas pinaiiral ang init ng ulo-dahil doon, maraming palihim na galit sa kanya.
People thought that someone could tame her. But no one could. The curse inside her brain is the undisputed culprit. Sa mata ng isang matalino, dapat ang lahat ay perpekto.
"I thought you were somehow different," kalmadong saad ni Jee sa kabila ng pangingilid ng luha sa kanyang mga mata.
Napalunok si Matteo. Umiling siya at nagsusumamong tumingin kay Jee. His puffy eyes almost melted down the walls in her heart. But she can't afford to be stupid.
"At this age, I'm only interested in consistency, stability, respect, and loyalty, Matteo."
Pumatak na ang luhang kanina pang pinipigilan ni Jee. "Unlike the other girls, I don't ask for anything of you. Just spoil me with loyalty. I can finance myself."
Matteo looked torn and broken as he watched Jee's tears helplessly fall down. Gusto niyang lumapit at yakapin ito nang mahigpit. Ngunit hindi iyon ang nais ni Jee mangyari. He didn't want to get her more upset. For the first time in his existence, he felt weak and worthless.
"Iyon na nga lang ang hinihingi ko, hindi mo pa maibigay," malamig na saad ni Jee.
