Yumi met Ulrich at the park as soon as Odd had left her house.Though
she didn't know what he would want to talk to her about.When she got there he was already there waiting for her. Right when
she got there she asked him "So what did you want to talk about?"
"Nothing really"Ulrich said "Just i can't stand to see you around Odd."
"Too bad." she said "You didn't care about me before because you were with Sissi.but now that i'm with Odd
you seem to care.I love him.i'm not leaving him for you."
"I didn't expect you would." he said "but i do love you Yumi and i wish you'd give me a chance."
"There's no chance for us.Maybe there would have been if you hadn't been with Sissi in the first place.But
it's too late now."
"Are you sure?"he said he grabbed her and kissed her hard on the lips. Yumi pulled herself free from him and
slapped him saying "don't ever do that again.i don't want to cause any more problems with you and Odd.i'll accept you as a
friend and nothing more."
Then she started to leave back to her house behind her Ulrich was saying "One day he'll dump you and don't
come crying to me when he does."
"Like i would."she yelled back.She would have been glad to be with Ulrich before if she hadn't fallen in love
with Odd but that was only if he hadn't been with Sissi.It didn't really matter to her anymore.She loved him once but he paid
her no attention.But now that she found someone he did and she didn't love him anymore.As sorry as she was Odd was the only
guy for her now.
A few months passed and Yumi's birthday arrived. Ulrich seemed to have just disappeared after that day at
the park.They rarley saw him but they did he was usually on his own or with Sissi.He didn't speak to them unless he had to
but other than that he was gone.
Yumi woke up pretty early that morning.She found a dozen roses in her room and a neatly wrapped present.She
got up and looked at the roses there was a note stuck in the front.It read:'My dearest love.happy birthday.- Odd.'
'How sweet.' she thought. She picked up the present it was from her parents.She unwrapped it carefully.it
was a garnet colored diary.She smiled and put it on her dresser as she got dressed and went downstairs for breakfast.
Later in the afternoon she went to the park to meet Odd, Jeremie and Aelita.When she got there Odd put an
arm around her shoulder and kissed her on the cheek.
"Did you get the flowers this morning?" he asked
"yes they were beautiful.Thanks." she said
Over at the table Jeremie and Aelita were lighting the candles on a birthday cake.They sung happy birthday
to her and she blew out the candles.They ate cake and ice cream then each handed her a present.From Jeremie she got the book
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card one of her favorite books(and a really good one too) and the second book Speaker
For the Dead from Aelita.
From Odd she got a book of poems,a book like note book and a gold
pen for her own poetry.She thanked them for the gifts then they all took a walk around the park for a while before going home
as it was getting late.She went to sleep happily now that she was eighteen and they would soon all graduate from highschool
in a month or so then be off for college.
Her and Odd had been together almost a year and she felt she loved him more now than she did before.What happened
two days after you can just imagine after they've been together this long and they both loved each other very much.
