I won’t forget, the summer we met. The place was a little town tucked in between the ocean and the mountains. There, they met a transfer student. The sun is so dazzling, and the fireworks are so fleeting. The summer that will never repeat itself is passing by so fast. A story that starts in summer that six high school students experience.
