  1. Don't Ask Me Why: Chapter 29, Part I

    "Ernest?" Tanya's voice was small.
    He jumped in his chair, but upon seeing Tanya, relaxed despondently.
    "Hello," he stood up, pretending like nothing happened, but he again started pacing involuntarily.
    Ernest was wearing all-black, and a suit jacket. Tanya always saw that as his best color. It made him seem so noble, so proper. Even now while he looked so sad, he looked so attractive to Tanya that she could barely stand still herself. Tanya slowly walked

  2. Don't Ask Me Why: Chapter 28

    Up until 8PM, Marie was frantically correcting her program error. She didn't have time to do any dressing up for the concert since she never had a chance to go back home.

    The night of the choral concert, Tanya planned out her outfit to the smallest detail: her red stilettos would not be appropriate, but her black satin shoes would do just well. A dark purple blazer, black skirt and stockings were a start, then silver earrings and her hair up in a bun. She looked absolutely professional, besides beautiful.
