Isolated himself from people as he went to his house in a distant town, where houses are hundreds of meters apart, Howard walks close to the lake, and sat down in bench. There he closed his eyes as he feels the fresh air, and took a deep breath.

He opened his eyes feeling quite relieved. His heartbreak from his girlfriend tool its toll on him when it triggered depression. There's a feeling of hoping when he's in the city. He tried to get back to her but she declined. He did things for her even he's not "obliged" but she's already happy with the man who replaced him.

That feeling of being incomplete, losing a part of your life. Howard has been stuck in such emotions, thus he decided to go back to his hometown with his mom. As time slowly heals the wounds, his well-being improved as well. Mommy has been his only support system since he cut himself off from technology. No internet, mobile phone, and computer. His friends doesn't even heard about him for months.

In an event in the city where Howard's friends are attending, they were surprised when he'd shown up. He looks better, healthier, and happier. A woman in the corner is looking at him. The heartbroken woman with so much sadness in her eyes. She's the woman who broke Howard's heart.
