*Please note, this is a short story which takes a few minutes to read altogether. Ideally the entire story should have been uploaded on one page, but alas, being new to Wattpad back then, I unfortunately posted each scene break as a separate chapter! Changing the layout now would mean losing all the lovely comments from readers, so I have left it as it is. I hope you will still enjoy the story regardless, thank you :)
