Synopsis #2

He is sitting on the bench silently. The journey seemed miraculous but that was not what he wanted. Cheers and laughter overcome any voices around him and he felt, this is the time he was alone. He could still feel, once a while, a pair of piercing eyes just stared at him. With what kind of intention, he don’t know. After all, he was forced to be here. If it was not because of the fact, he would have gone back – a place where he called home for twelve years. But what now? Even Home wanted him to come here. Did they realize what he was going to face here? Or, is that what they planned? Annoyed, he sat silently on the bench…

----------

He wondered why things can’t happen the other way. Instead of staying here and going through the portal everyday, why can’t he just stay there and come over here through the portal. You don’t understand your danger.  Yes, that was what they said – over and over again. He had had enough of danger warning conversation as though all they were concerned was his danger. He, himself, was the only one kept in the bottle, knowing nothing. He reckoned that the danger he will face here is much more terrible than he would have faced outside. No matter it is inside the dormitory, or outside – or even in class, Mafer couldn’t see what was the difference between prison and imprisoned. Even worse, when you don’t understand what was going on…

Lying down on the ‘pond’, he looked out of the window, it is only this time, when the whole room is empty, he feel safe but deep inside, he missed home a lot…
