1. A NICE EVENING
It is a nice evening. It heard a song, MY HEART WILL GO ON, which sang by Celine Dion. It is become a soundtrack of TITANIC film. In a big house, like an American, there is a beautiful girl who is making up herself in front of a mirror. She does it happilly.
It is Saturday, June 29 th. The girl whose name is Nurima Lestha Andrea, but her friends like calling her with the name Ann, will celebrate her birthday with her closest friend since they are children, Atan. They will meet in Candles Lake which is full of candles when they are there together.
Their parents had recognized them in order to make a best relationship between them.It is done by always making them together in the most of their activities since they are children. They always playing together and there is a special thing about them, that their date of birth is equal. They always make their friends happy although their heart were sad.
Atan will have his 19th birthday and Ann 17th. They began to celebrate it together when Atan were 17th. He asked his parents that he wanted to do it. His parents understood about it and give him permission. When he heared it, he was very happy. He went to Ann’s house and said it to her happilly.
Every night in my dream
I see you I feel you
That is how I know you go on
Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on
Near far wherever you are
I believe that the heart will go on
Once more you open the door
And you’re here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on
This song is still heard in Ann’s room. It is one of her favourite love songs. She had seen the film more time too.
KRIING . . . . KRIING . . . . KRIING . . . .
The telephone rang.
Ann go to the telephone table and answer it.
‘Hallo, who’s there?’ She said.
‘Hallo Ann, I’m Atan, are you ready?’ A speaker said.
‘Oh yes I’m, wait for a few minute, I will come soon . . . . ‘ She said.
‘Ok, thanks, Assalamualaikum’
‘Wa’alaikumsalam.’ She said.
Ann go to her room again. She tunr the mp3 of, take a violet bag, and leaves her room.
‘Mom, I’m going to go out now....’She said to her mom.
‘Ok my baby, Be careful.’ Mom said.
‘Yes mom, Assalamualaikum.’
She walk across a big field near her house.
Look at her face!!
Look at her eyes!!
She looks very happy, You can see a happiness rainbow on her eyes.
A boy whose high is about 175 centimetres is flamming many candles around the lake. He has prepared a small picnic for Ann.
Beside him, there are a flower, a red carpet, a basket which is full of friuts, a botlle of orange juice, a violet candle, and a bag.
He sees a beautiful girl whom is approaching and smiling to him a few minute later. He is sure that she is Ann.
‘What a beautiful girl you are.’ He said.
‘What a handsome boy you are.’ She said.
‘Why do you follow my words?’ He said.
‘Why do you follow my words?’ She said.
They are having a joke together. They laugh for a few minute.
They began to prepare a few picnic.
Atan is spreading a red carpet while Ann is opening the basket.
‘Ann, give me the bag please . . . !’
‘Ok, here you are’ She said.
They sit beside the candles and start to say something one another, that they will be randesvous forever and feeling their happiness and sadness together.
‘Happy birthday my pretty girl’ He said.
Happy birthday my brave boy’ She said.
2. I CAN’T CONTINUE IT AGAIN
The evening climb the night. There are many stars in the sky this night. The lake is like a small star when it is seen from a long distance because it is arounded by many candles.
‘When do you began to arrange it?’ Ann said.
‘At four o’clock.’
‘What ??? You spent much time to do this. Why don’t you ask me to help you? I’m sure that you are very tired now . . . ‘ She said.
‘It doesn’t matter.’ He said shortly.
‘Well, by the way, what are your plan after your age of 19th?’
‘I will get married, hehehehe . . . . ‘ Atan laughed.
‘With me surely?’ She said.
‘ Oh. . . What have you said before?’ He said.
‘ No, there isn’t a repeating news, It’s very expensive, Hehehehe.’
They are silent together.
Atan think that he must say his feeling to Ann now.
He makes himself to be sure about his mind. He has prepare it a long time ago without her knowledge. He must say it now in order to being not late. He doesn’t have any time again before his time come. He hadn’t been certain about his words which will say by him.
‘Ann, Do you bring your HP?’ He said.
‘Oh, yes, here you are . . . ‘
She gives her HP to Atan, then they listen its mp3 together.
Don’t say you love me
Don’t tell me you need me
If you weren’t gonna stay
Don’t give me this feeling
I only believe it
Make it real
Or take it all away.
A song ‘DON’T SAY YOU LOVE ME’ which is sang by THE CORRS, makes their mind become full of many unknown feelings. They keep silent.
Ann take an orange and remove it peel. Atan notice her behaviour carefully. He looks how Ann remove it peel.
Ann give some cloves to him. They eat it together without any words come out from their lips.
‘Do you like this song Atan?’ She said.
‘Oh I like it very much. It is my favourite love song in THE CORRS album, how about you?’ He said.
‘Surely, so do I.’
They are silent again.
‘Ann, I want to say something to you.’ He said.
‘What is it?’
Atan just silent. He hasn’t been sure about what will he say to Andrea.
He hasn’t say something to Ann, he just keep silent.
‘Atan, answer me please . . . !!!’ She said.
‘I won’t be your old brother anymore again,’ He said.
Hearing Atan’s words, Ann become weak because she is so surprized.
She bowed her face.
Green grass is looked by her.
She is confused about Atan’s words. How can he say it to me. Don’t he know what is her feeling of him????
‘Ann, I’m sorry, I can’t.’ He said again.
3. SAY IT’S TRUE
Many stars began to settle themselves in the sky. The night become dark because there is no stars and moon. The lake just get a shine from some candles which arround it.
‘Ann, I began to miss you not as my young sister but as a girl.’ He said.
‘ Why do you say it, Atan . . . ?’
‘ Long time ago, you aren’t like this, you become different .’ She shouted.
‘’ Ann, you must understand that once is different from now,there are many event that aren’t known by you.’ He said.
‘’ Do you understand what I says? Ann, you must understand it.’ He added.
‘’ Yes, but it because I miss you too . . . not as my old brother, but as a boy.’ She said.

‘’Oh, Ann I’m very happy to hear that. You have make my heart become wonderful.’
‘’ Atan, I’m serious, I miss you once, now, and forever.’ She said.
‘’ Lets go home now, it began to be night. Come on . . . ‘
‘’ Okay . . . . ‘ She said.
They pack what they bring that evening, then they go home together.
The candles in the lake have been fully off when they leave it. They walk together to reach their home. They have arrived in front of her house. Atan say good night before he leave Ann.
‘’ Okay, good night, Ann.’ He said.
‘’ Yes, good night, have a nice dream . . . !’
‘ See you tomorrow.’

Andrea goes to the living room fast. She sit beside her mom.
‘ Mom, I’m very happy.’ She said.
’Why ?? Oh mom has know, you don’t need to say it to me, mom can see from your eyes, Ann.’

He climb the ladder and come into his bedroom. He closed the door, then he go to the bathroom. Coming out from the bathroom, he go to sleep happily with a wish that he will has a nice dream.
The night is fully dark now. There’s no stars, moon, and many lamps have been turned off. Everyone is in theirself dreams this night. They wish tha the following day will be better from today.
5. MY PRETTY BOY
It is a nice morning. Many people ready to continue their activities today after they had a long sleep last night. It heard a song which sang by M2M when Ann is reading a magazine beside a swimming pool in her back yard.

She read her magazine again, but her mind is uncomfortable because of her Dad words. The song has bee changing to a song sang by THE CORRS which titled BREATHLESS.
Go on, go on, leave me breathless
The daylight’s fading slowly
but time with you is standing still
I’m waiting for you only
The slightest touch and I’ll feel weak
I cannot lie
From you I cannot hide
I’m losing the will to try
Can’t hide it ( can’t hide it )
Can’t fight it ( can’t fight It )
Go on, go on, come on leave me breathless
Tempt me, tease me until I can’t deny this
loving feeling, make me long for your kiss
Go on, go on
Yeah, come on…
And if there’s no tomorrow
And all we have is here and now
I’m happy just to have you
You’re all the love I need somehow
I must say it to Atan. He must know tha I will be far of him. She go out to reach Atan’s house. She began to dream that they will saparated for a long time in the future.
‘ Oh my God, what has happened to me? Yesterday, I felt a happiness and now a sadness come unfortunatelly to me.
‘ Wat’s wrong with me?’ She said herself.
She arrived at Atan’s house. She knocked the door and wait for an answer from the house.
The door opened. She sees a handsome, brave and dever boy in front of her.
‘ Good morning, Atan.’ She said.
‘ Good morning, is there anything to be said?’ He said.
‘ Yes, I want to say something to you.’
‘ Let’s go to my garden now, we talk there,’
‘Okay,’ She said
Ann feel thet she can’t say it to him. She can’t see his sadness. Her heart is sick. She is certainly difficult to leave him alone in Indonesia.
Oh my God, give me power to explain this to him . . . .
‘ Ann, sit down please…’ He said.
‘ Oh, yes thanks’ She said.
‘ What will you say to me? You can say it now, I will listen you calmly.’ He said.
‘ I feel difficult to say it…’
‘ Why?’ He said.
‘ I will go to Franch to continue my study, my Dad want me do that.’ She said.
‘ Oh, I have known it from him’
‘ I give you permission to go there’ He said.
‘ Why ?? I really want you to disturb his plan.’
‘ Ity isn’t a good thing, You must understand it Ann, I’m sure if we are mate, we will meet again althought in beyond, I’m sure.’ He said.
‘ Oh, you are very wise, I’m happy to become your girl.’
‘ Thanks, Let’s go to our secret place now.’ He said.
‘ Okay,’ She said.
They go to their secret place together. They walk in a trotoar about a half kilometres.
‘ Okay, we arrive. Let’s sit under the tree !!!’ he said.
‘ Yes.’ She said.
‘ Ann, you won’t forget me if you in Franch, will you?’ He said.
‘ You can hold my words Atan, you a boy I wanted only.’ She said.
‘ Thanks Ann, I’m sure you will be succeed there. I just can help you with my pray. I will always pray for you get your success there, and you will come back bringing your academic title.’ He said.
‘ Surely, I promised.’
Their eyes are changed to the lake in front of them. They look it carefully that they always use it to be assembled. It had becoming their secret place since they were children.
Look at Atan !!!
He looked prepare a poem for Ann. He wants her to be his first audience for hearing it.
‘ Ann, hear me please !!! I have a poem for you.’ He said shortly.
A POET FOR MY DEAR LOVE
To the very best that happen in my life
Long ago in my mind, I can see you
Face lonely and pass in time
You were gone since yester month
But the memories never would disapear
I think of you, I THINK OF YOU
Yes it’s true I can pretend. But the paint of blue
Keep beat me till the end
Yes it’s to undeerstand why you leaving me
And all we dreaming on
Dear my love, I close my eyes and see your face
I know what I can do to be with you
Long ago so far away, But the light of blue,
Still leaving with me today
You were gone since yester month
But the memories never would disapear
He stop his words, then bowed his face. He wish that Ann will receive it as a love statement for her. He wait for Ann’s answer. It’s a long time. He hasn’t hear a word from her.
‘ Atan . . . ‘
‘ Yes, I am.’ She said.
‘ Hmmmm, where do you get it from? Hehehehe’ She said with her natural smile thet can make him fly to the sky.
‘ What ??? Ann, what you say? I take it from a book? Yes, it your mean? Oh you have disturb my heart. Congratulation, and you are succed.’ He said.
Atan swing around his face to the other side.
‘ Ehmmm, I’m not sure . . . ‘ She said.
‘ But you like it, don’t you?’
‘ I like it, but you must know that I never will be gone for a long time because I still in your heart.’ She said.
‘ I know, and I will keep you in my heart. I won’t give you permission for going out from it.’ He said.
‘ Ok, now let’s listen my new mp3. I just already get it from my friend.’ She said.
Ann take a handphone from her pocket and turn it mp3 on. They began to dream again with the song sang by THE CORRS.
I stay the same
I'm a solo cello outside a chorus
I've got a secret
It's time for me to tell it
You've been keeping me warm
To sweet beginnings
And bitter endings
In coffee city, we borrowed heaven
Don't give it back
I've never felt so wanted
Are you taking me home?
You tell me you have to go
In the heat of summer sunshine
I miss you
Like nobody else
In the heat of summer sunshine
I'll kiss you
And nobody needs to know
‘ Oh my God, how about our birthday??’ She said.
‘ I have thought a good idea. When you are studying in Franch, every year in our birthday I will send you a letter and a give, and you do too. You must give me a letter and a give as a statement that you and I still connected. I promise that I will flam many candles here every year to celebrate our birthday, so we still celebrate our birthday together altought you were in Franch.’ He said.
‘ Great, It’s a good idea, I agree.’
‘ Next time when yoou come back to Indonesia, you will have been 23rd years old, and we are ready to marry. I wait you here because I’m sure we will reach it.’ He said.
‘ I’m very happy to hear that, altought we are far, we will never saparated because our hearts always connect in love.’
‘ You must certain that I wait hou here’ He said.
‘ And I will come back bringing a pride for you.’
‘ Okay, I hold your promise.’ He said.
‘ Thanks for all Atan, I feel that I am the only girl with my happiness in this world.’ She said.
‘ Go on carefully and come back safely.’ He said.
‘ It has been afternoon, It will be better if we go home now. How about having braekfast in my house?’ He said.
‘ Oh, okay’
He standed and hold Ann’s hand to be armed. They go to Atan’s house to have breakfast with his family there.
‘ Atan, what time is it??’
‘ Oh, eight o’clock?’ He said.
‘ Yeah, I have a few time only in your house because I will go to Central Bank to have a research.’ She said.
‘ It doesn’t matter.’
‘ Yes, It does.’
6. EVERYTHING I DO
Atan sit on the chair in his studying table. He is writing a diary book. He never do it before, but he doesn’t have any choises. What happen with him. Does it very important for him???
My name is Atandira Atmanegara. I’m studying in Indonesian University. This night I don’t know where will I say my problem, so I regard you as a best friend to hear it.
Dy, This morning she has said that she will go to Franch for continuing her study. It was a command from her parents, so she refuse it.
She follow their will to go tpo Franch on January next year. This is not a long time till she is gone away. It’s June, so it’s about six months again before she go. Altought I had given her my permission for going, I feel sick if I must be saparated from her. We had been together since we were children, without a saparatise time before.
Ann, don’t you know that I love you very much. I can life without you. I don’t know what will happen with my lung cancer if you don’t beside me. Some years, I always happy everyday between my sickness because of you. And a few time more, you will leave me alone. I don’t know I cann defend my live or not. Ann, I want you to become the only girl in my heart. If it is possible, I’m really want to marry with you to become your life friend till forever. My family doctor has said to me that my life still three years only and it is if there’s a miracle for me. I don’t know what will happen with me between that time.
I don’t want you know that I’m sick because I can’t see your sadness. I want you only know that I am a healty boy which never get a sickness. But, sometime I’m sure that you will know it. So, I must prapare all the thing so that when you know, you won’t be surprized.
Ann, my life for you. I life because of you and my death for you, I will wait you in the beyond cause I’m sure it will be happen.
Ann,You are my life
You are my pewer
You are my inspiration
You are my girl
You are my love
It’s hard for me to say the things
I want to say sometimes
There’s no one here but you and me
And that broken old street light
Lock the doors
We’ll leave the world outside
All I’ve got to give to you
Are these five words when I
Thank you for loving me
For being my eyes
When I couldn’t see
For parting my lips
When I couldn’t breathe
Thank you for loving me
Thank you for loving me
7. THE DAY I WENT AWAY
Part of me laught
Part of me cries
Part of wants to question why
Why is there joy
Why is there pain
Why is there sunshine and the rain
One day you were here, next you were gone
No matter what we must go on
Just keep the faith and
Let love lead the way
Everything will work go round
If you let love....
Lead love lead the way
The song is very match with Ann’s case now. She doesn’t know what she must do in all of her problems. Part of her heart wants not to leave Atan, but the other side force her to follow her father command.
She is in her bedroom now. She sit in front of the mirror. She hold her hair then she goes to the window in her room. Se sees a view in front of her.
‘ Oh, it is a cloudly morning . . . . The sun doesn’t appear . Why is it happen to me??? Why do I feel that my situation is the same as the weather now, cloudly and there isn’t the sunshine in my heart.
Atan, this day I will be go to Paris, leaving you alone, leaving our sweet memories, leaving our Candles Lake, the secret place since we are children, and leaving our happiness here.
I don’t want to do this but my father wants me to go to Franch, and you know that I won’t make him be dissapointed.
I’m very afraid to leave all of things that had been built by us. Atan . . . .don’t you hear me talking here, talking about us.’
‘Ann, will you have a sweet ending breakfast with us?’ Mom said.
‘Yes mom, I will come down soon . . .’ She said.
‘ Okay, we wait you here . . . be quickly my baby, you will fly to Paris this afternoon . . .’ Mom said.
Ann goes to the mirror again. She wears a scarf around her hair, packs her cosmetics in a bag and then she goes down to have breakfast with her family.
‘Good morning Dad . . . .’ She said.
‘ Good morning my baby, how are you today . . . you are fine aren’t you?’ Dad said.
‘ Oh, I’m very fine this morning . . . but there a thing that still float in my heart.’ She said.
‘ What is this, can I know ???’
‘ I want to meet Atan for a last time . . . you give me permission to do this aren’t you ???’ She said.
‘ Oh, surely we give you’ Dad said.
‘ Thanks a lot Dad, you are my best I had . . .’
‘ You can meet him after having breakfast.’
They continue their breakfast without any words come out from their lips. They look that they can stand their saparatise time when Ann is in Franch but actually this is really a falsehood. They can’t live without seeing their daughter in front of them but they must stand in this case if they want to look her become a succes girl in her future. They must make their child become a good people in her social life. That’s why they do this, altought they are very difficult to free her alone in Franch. Mom is the first people who will feel of lost in her the only child. She had uttered her in a difficult way. She wish that Ann won’t miss them while she is in Franch for her study.
‘ Mom, I want to go to Atan’s home now, Assalamualaikum . . . ‘ She said.
‘ Okay, be careful my baby . . .’
‘ Okay mom.’ She said.
8. THANK YOU FOR LOVING ME
Andrea is walking to Atan’s home. She wants to meet him for saying some words. She is really confused about her feel. In one time she is hapy to go to Franch, but in the other side she is only a weak girl who can’t stand her love.
TOK . . .TOK . . .TOK. . .
‘Assalamualaikum, anybody here??’
She hasn’t hear an answer from the house. Where are them?? They will accompany her going to the airport won’t they???
A few minute later, a gardener in his house approachs her. He look wants to say something to Ann.
‘ Good morning Miss Ann, what are you doing here??’ He said.
‘ Oh, I want t meet Atan . . . where is he, I don’t see him ths day . . .’ She said.
‘Oh, don’t you know that they are going to Anyer this morning ??? Don’t they talk to you about it???’ He said.
‘ Oh, they don’t say anything to me or my family that they go to Anyer. What are they doing there???’ She said.
‘ I don’t know about it, they only give me a command to say it to you.’ He said.
‘ Please . . . give me a reason why they don’t give me an information about their journey to Anyer.’ She said.
‘ I’m sorry I don’t know . . .’
‘ Okay, thanks. I will go home now, Assalamualaikum . . .’ She said.
‘ Waalaikumsalam . . .’ He said.
She go to her house sadly. Why Atan do this to her. She feel that she doesn’t do anything that can make him angry but he isn’t beside her now when she will see him for the last time. Her tears began to come down passing her cheek out of her command. She think that she must call him for asking an explanation about this case. Why he leave her without her knowledge in her day going to Franch. She walks to her home fast. She wish that he will see her when she fly on the Garuda Indonesia to go to Franch. She wish that he will become the last person who see her back when she enter the waiting room in the Airport.
She arrives in front of her house. She enters the house soon, and goes to her bedroom. She takes her handphone and dial some number. It’s Atan’s number. May be, she wants to call him to ask something she needed.
‘ Assalamualaikum.’ She said.
‘Waalaikumsalam.’ A speaker said.
‘ Atan, It’s you??? I want to say something . . .’ She said.
‘ Yes, I’m. What will you say to me, be fast please, I’m in the busy time now.’ He said.
‘ What . . . . so, I’m a disturb people in your time ???’ She said.
‘ No . . . I just feel tired, so I hope you will say it soon.’ He said.
‘ Oh, I want to know why you leave me in my last day in Indonesia. You know that this day I will go to Franch for my study. Why you don’t accompany me in my time ??? I think you will understand what I want in our last time but you were different, I don’t feel you love now.’ She said.
‘ It’s false Ann, you know that I love you don’t you??? It’s just a joking if you regard me as that.’ He said.
‘ But you don’t tell me why you go to Anyer with you family. I’m sad.’
‘ Ann, you don’t know all about me, you don’t have a right to say it to me.’
‘ What ?? you say that I don’t recognized me as your girlfriend. I know all about you Tan, Okay it’s enought. I have know that you has been not loving me this time and anymore . . . Thank you for all you give for me Atan . . . Assalamualaikum’ She said then she close the telephone.
‘ Ann, Ann, Ann, You still there ???’ Hear me please. He doesn’t hear any words from Ann, he has been aware about it, that Ann has closed the telephone.
‘ Dad, I want to go to Jakarta now. I want to see her for the last time, Dad give me permission please . . . I will be fine. He said to his Dad.
‘ But you is in you medicinal threatment now, do you will leave it ??? It’s for your health . . . .’ Dad said.
