His Smile Worth Billions

Chapter 29 HER ONLY WAY TO ESCAPE



Emaya couldn��t believe she did it. She made her only ray of hope, the love of her life smile.

Emaya always felt over the moon whenever she made someone smile, but when it��s Ash who is smiling, She felt extremely happy and she was forced to think had she ever been happier in her life? She felt fully and wonderfully alive and it all happened just because of his small, brief smile.

��That��s the best birthday gift ever!�� Emaya exclaimed with joy.

Ash stared at her tenderly, a sudden warmth rushed down his body after a really long time.

Seeing her truly happy also made him feel content and pleased.

She was smiling her brightest smile yet this time it looked completely different, it felt real. She wasn��t faking her smile for the first time. There was a light in her eyes that no one has ever seen before. Ash couldn��t help but stare into her bright eyes, her lips which were curled into a wide, toothy smile.

When she said she wanted nothing else from him, she really meant it.

She wanted to see him smile. So did Ash, he also wanted to see himself smile, however it felt impossible.

Now that he looked at Emaya, a ray of hope ignited in his soul. She was his only ray of hope, yet he didn��t know he, himself, was also her ray of hope.

Both of them snapped out of their daze as soon as Miss Olivia entered the classroom and all the students greeted her.

She had her warm smile plastered on her face as usual, it only got wider when Emaya offered her the last cupcake.

��Oh, so it��s your birthday today?��

��Yeah,�� Emaya shifted her gaze away from Ash as nodded happily.

��Well, Happy Birthday sweetie, enjoy your day,�� Her tone was soft as ever, it was the reason all students loved and respected her.

��Thanks, I��m enjoying it.��

Emaya placed the last cupcake in front of her, asking with a polite smile, ��I��ve made cupcakes for everyone, would you like to try?��

��Sure, how can someone say no to cupcakes.�� She said as she walked towards her, slowly taking a bite and praising how delicious it actually was.

Miss Olivia walked away to begin her class and all students paid attention to the lesson except for Emaya whose mind was lost in her thoughts, the image of a little smile on Ash��s aloof looking face was stuck in her head. The smile not leaving her face.

She noticed Ash��s eyes were still on her, she turned her head slightly raising her eyebrows at him. His usual cold looking expression was back on his face.

��What about you?�� Ash asked with a straight face out of nowhere.

��What about me?�� Emaya asked as she pointed at herself.

��Why didn��t you eat it?��

��Oh, haha that��s okay, I made them for others anyway.��

��Don��t you want to eat them?��

Emaya adores him for his sudden innocent tone. She finds it extremely adorable when he is concerned for her.

Emaya rested her elbow on the desk and propped her chin in her hand, staring at him affectionately as she replied, ��There was the only thing I wanted, and I��ve got it.��

Ash blinked, staring at her blankly before it came to him what she was talking about.

Ash looked away then after a moment, he lowered his long lashes and shook his head as he huffed a small laugh.

His lips parted slightly as he smiled. Though it was a small smile, it was wider than before.

Emaya was stunned as she noticed a large dimple appeared in the upper part of his right cheek.

��Wait- Do you even know how dizzyingly, heart-racingly beautiful you look when you smile? You better keep smiling like that!�� Emaya felt her heart was going to explode, she couldn��t take her eyes off of his dimples no matter how hard she tried, at the end she gave up and stared at his exceptionally handsome face.

��Ash....really,�� Emaya paused as she leaned her head down on the desk, placing her cheek on her hands, gazing at him with a brightest smile, ��Your smile worth billions!��

His dimple that played at the corner of his mouth when he smiled was extremely beautiful.
Emeye couldn��t believe she did it. She mede her only rey of hope, the love of her life smile.

For some reesons, even though Deven wes e humble person, he didn��t went him to be close to Emeye. He didn��t know why it wes bothering him so much. Wes he being jeelous? No wey!

Then... It��s not mine. It��s hers. Her smile worth billions.

.

.

.

The half day eventually passed like this and it was now the break time. All students hurried towards the cafeteria, Emaya also got up from her desk as she saw her friends walking out. She asked Ash to come along with her however, he shook his head, refusing.

��Hey, stop skipping meals! Let me bring it to you.�� Emaya offered him a gentle smile before catching up with others.

As she was about to head out of the classroom, she stopped at the doorway as she met with Daven.

Freyah��s eyes suddenly lit up as soon as she saw Daven, she smiled cheerfully ��Hey!��

��Hi,�� Daven replied and quickly walked forward to Emaya, without looking at Freyah.

Freyah was at a loss for words as she stared at the boy. Diana noticed the change in her expressions and hurriedly blurted out, ��Let��s go I��m starving! Emaya would follow.��

Freyah��s smile disappeared, she didn��t want to stay in the class either and left without a word.

��Hey Emaya! Happy Birthday!�� Daven said with a beautiful, genuine smile as he took out a small present, ��here.��

��Thanks Daven!�� Emaya said excitedly, they were close friends and she was now even more comfortable around Daven however, she was slightly taken aback when she saw the gift in his hand, she didn��t expect him to bring a present for her.

Even Daven bought me a gift? What��s going on?

��Ayo, you didn��t have to-��

��Why? You��re my friend, of course I had to buy you a gift.�� Daven��s tone was extremely warm and polite that somehow bothered Ash.

The closeness between Emaya and Daven was what was bothering him. He was now the only one who didn��t buy her gift. He was the one whom Emaya is willing to give her everything yet he couldn��t give Emaya a small present.

For some reasons, even though Daven was a humble person, he didn��t want him to be close to Emaya. He didn��t know why it was bothering him so much. Was he being jealous? No way!

Emaya accepted the gift from him gratefully.

��Too bad, you didn��t get to eat her delicious cupcakes,�� Diana jumped in.

��Aw really?�� Daven laughed a little, raising a brow at Emaya.

��Uh... I��m sorry. I should have saved one for you.�� Emaya scratched the back of her head.

��Haha, that��s okay. It doesn��t matter,�� Daven laughed it off.

��Well, I just hope you��ll like the present, I��m not good at picking gifts.��

��Hah, Emaya please do. He gave me a headache asking what you��d like,�� Diana heaved a sigh.

��Haha, of course I would like it,�� Emaya smiled.

Emaya always gets along with people around her but Daven keeps getting closer to her. It felt odd but she felt happy, at least he stopped giving her weird looks.

However, there was someone who didn��t seem to like it at all. Ash sat there quietly, looking away from them.

��C��mon Emaya let��s go! I��m hungry! Let��s have lunch together�� Diana clung onto Emaya��s arm, dragging her along with her out of the classroom.

��I.... Um,�� Emaya glanced back at Ash, uttering the words before Diana cut her off and quickly left the room.

Ash didn��t look at her, he turned his head only after she left.

Daven began to follow them before glancing at the boy staring at them.

Ash slowly turnad his gaza back at har, thara was still a hint of smila on his faca as ha raisad his brow, asking, ��Smila.... Worth billions?��

Frayah was at a loss for words as sha starad at tha boy. Diana noticad tha changa in har axprassions and hurriadly blurtad out, ��Lat��s go I��m starving! Emaya would follow.��

Frayah��s smila disappaarad, sha didn��t want to stay in tha class aithar and laft without a word.

Emaya accaptad tha gift from him gratafully.

Their eyes met for e brief moment before Ash coldly flicked ewey his eyes.

Deven furrowed his brows end left.

He��s weird.

On their wey, Diene elbowed Emeye, esking in e low voice, ��You elso like Ash?��
