"Do not worry sweetheart..mummy knows you are hungry but master is still seemed abit furious with me. Maybe I could eat this leftover chicken" The pregnant mother carresses her stomach,lifting the leftover her husband had already threw in the trash can. She washes it clean before feeding both herself and her unborn baby. Her stomach still growls. She needed to cry but she just couldn't. She couldn't let her baby feel how devastated she is. Thats her meal for tonight. The lonely mother goes into her room adjusting the carboard bed her husband had given to her. She sleeps in anxiety.
Seems there isn't any much difference between living in a poor house and in a mantion when both lives is quite the same as to live horrifically. Maybe the only difference she could see here is that living with riches has no given of love and care. Similar to live in a huge cave alone feeding yourself with rocks and sand.The next day,the baby is coming. She begged to her husband to be sent to the hospital. Her drunkard husband refuses and same as the evilish grandmother. The mother couldn't hold back. She runs outside on her own in grief and pain. What should she do now?..take a bus? Uber? She has no money.
She couldn't stand still anymore so she dropped herself infront of the big house's porch. Just as she expected. The other households aren't that different from this family. They mind their own business even after seeing a pregnant woman is about to give birth. Suddenly, a car droves into the porch. The owner of that luxurious looking car steps off and run towards her. Her mind startled," Is that Kaoru? No,my husband is still in the house feeling drunk. But this man looked like him..urghh..! Oh god,please save my baby. I have no strength" she shuts her eyes. Her view fades. In a flash she thought she heard the man saying her name,"Haruhi,is that you? Hold on.."
Without knowing how much passed, Haruhi opens her eyes. She hears a crying infant near her. As she figured, the child is born imperfectly,with a twisted leg and arm. He looked abit too small than an average baby too. On the other side, she sees her husband and his mother. Giving her the look of disgust. The gradmother spoke "for the sake of my family's pride, I order you to get rid of that 'thing' " Haruhi's eyes widen. With her baby to be called as a 'thing', and to be get rid of..what a world this is. She feel like fainting again. Her tears drops. Suddenly, her eyes shuts back.
When Haruhi is awake again. She notices herself sleeping on a sofa. Clueless of her surrounding. But first and far most important,she glance around to find her baby..she began to worry. "Where is he.. where are kaoru and his grandmother?" Her heart drops. Haruhi uses all her strength to pop outside as her instinct tells her to go there. To see, two men having a deep fight with each other. They both looked like Kaoru. "You sick bastard! Why would you bury it!!" One of them shouted. Haruhi seeks the word 'bury'. "No.." as she noticed, a shovel on a top of mountained dirt. "My baby". One of those men who looked as similar as her husband covers Haruhi's eyes. "Damnit,you saw it" he then pulls Haruhi away from the heartless people. He felt so ashamed that these savages are related to him. He hold off his tears. They run away from the back of the house to approach the porch. Haruhi's feelings are too bolt up to feel anything.
She just stares into nothing with teardrops falls deliberately. The other man brought her to his car. Without any moment to waste,he takes her away from there. Haruhi's world had fallen apart. He doesn't care where they're heading anymore. They drove in silence the whole night and rested in the man's house with no spoken words.
That night, Hikaru assist her to take a warm shower. She obeyed. After a moment, she wraps a towel around and without hesitation, she steps barely naked out of the shower. It was a mistake for Hikaru to sit in the same room as haruhi and sees her covered with nothing but a towel. Blushing with bright red, Hikaru gets up and apologises profusely while letting himself outta the room. Haruhi made an emotionless expression and put on the white shirt with a pair of sweatpants Hikaru left on the bed.
It's been awhile since she slept on a real bed. Haruhi gets up,unware about what she exactly feels right now. This is a different house. She remembered what happened last night. But the memories is kinda blurry. Atleast,thats what she hopes. She manages to find the kitchen and saw kaoru..no,this is not him even how similar he looks. But his way of everyhting looked like hes from another dimension of her husband. He turns around and almost startled himself while holding a pan of cooked scrambled eggs. With a yellow coloured apron.. Haruhi waits for his response until Hikaru assist her to sit at the dining table while serving the eggs to her at the same time.
"I am Kaoru's twin brother, Hikaru." He spoke and sighed. "I'm sorry about everything, I am ashamed about everything, please,give me a chance to give you a new life. I've heard alot about you. You even sound so nice from the way people described you, yet you have been mistreated in such a way." Haruhi's empty expression makes her hard to read. "Why are you apologising?" Hikaru scratches his head. "Um..remember when kaoru was your childhood friend?..That.. was not Kaoru. I lied. It was me. And at that time,I asked to propose to you when we turn 18. That wasn't kaoru. It was me.I was in love with you, but you had a huge crush on kaoru at that time since he was so cool with the other kids..and me, on the other hand,..was a major nerd. So.. im sorry. I should've told you." At this rate, Hikaru knew ita possible for haruhi to hate him the most. Haruhi grabs his shoulder and a slap thundered onto his face. She cried. She has no words to speak of more. Only few words, "please take care of me, dumbass."
