face.He opened his eyes and struggled to sit

“No,I just want to die!”Jake shouted suddenly

and bursts into tears.

“Dieee!!?”The guys shouted in horror.

“Jemimah has left me.My Joy’s gone.I’m

empty.”Jake said with tearful voice.

“Mtcheeeew!!!..”Thomas hissed and moved

towards the T.V to continue watching the

football match.

“Why that?”Jake asked.

“Because you’re very stupid for crying over a

girl”Adam said and pulled his beard.

“You can’t understand guys”Jake said.

“We are not fools,okay but i think you surely

don’t need to cry over that girl.I knew she’s a

betrayer”Roqeeb said and folded his arms.

“So how do we help?”Adam inquired.

“Can you follow me to plead?At least she

would shy of you guys…please”Jake asked.
