1. Athena finally agrees to be Kenji's pretend girlfriend. From that moment, you know it's going to get really crazy. And those rules they set for each other? They'll eventually break those.

"You can hold my hand. But you're not going to kiss me, you're not going to hug me other than when Athena—look can we just call her Abigail? I feel stupid saying my own name when I'm talking about someone else."

"Fine, Abigail then. And it's not like I'm ever going to want to kiss or hug you anyway."

2. The endless petty arguments and fights, because you know deep inside they really are so fond of each other.

The rest of the day went by pretty slowly because Athena wasn't around. No one's arguing with me, no one's giving me dirty looks or shouting at me...

I kinda miss her.

 3. Their first kiss. Do we even need to tell you why?

I turned to walk off the dance floor when Kenji suddenly grabbed my hand, pulled me close, and kissed me on the lips.

4. When Kenji said I love you too in his own way. We can't breathe!

"Because I am serious about what I said and what I feel. I love you, Kenji."

He lightly poked my forehead. "You know that's like saying you can't breathe. Go home, okay? Good night."

...

I was just about to get in the car again when he said, "Athena, wait."

I stopped and turned back to look  at him.

"I can't...I can't breathe."

5. Kenji's knight-in-shining-armor moment when he saves Athena from the men who were trying to harass her.

6. The confrontation between Athena and Abigail, after the latter accused her of being a gold digger that's why she's pretending to be Kenji's girlfriend. Our heroine stands up for herself!

I just didn't have the energy for this. "Whatever, Abigail," I said, freeing my arm from her grip.

7. When Athena breaks her heart upon overhearing Kenji and Abigail's conversation during the party.

"So who do you like more, me or her?" I froze hearing Abigail asked that question.

"Of course I like you more. We were together for a long time," Kenji said.

8. That moment when Athena sees Abigail inside Kenji's bedroom. How many times does she have to break her heart? *sobs*

I climbed the stairs to Kenji's room. "Kenji?" I called again, opening the door.

Abigail was sitting on Kenji's bed.

9. That Christmas eve party at Athena’s house, and Kenji said the most heartbreaking line, ever.

He pulled away and looked at me, then held my hand tightly. "Athena...I don't think I can do this anymore."

10. Those moments before the ending. We're not going to spoil it for you, Candy Girls, but you can read the book or wait for the movie instead. ;)

    while I am reading the 10 moments of SDTG .... Nag #throwback lahat ... The day I start reading the SDTG on my phone-----ebook... This story really touch my heart.... sa lahat ng story na nabasa ko .. ang SDTG ang pinakamaganda.... itong storya na ito ang nakapag pag iyak sa akin ng sobra.. natutulog ng madaling araw dahil sa pag babasa , inuulit-ulit ang pag babasa... I think I read it 5 times already. ang pinaka masakit na part is yung nasa hospital si Athena ang Kenji was also their not visit Athena but hes there to visit Abigail.. and the most heartbreakable line na sinabi ni kenji is "Sana mamatay ka na" it really hurts you know... Everytime I remember about Athena ang Kenji's lovestory .. my heart really beat so FAST!! ang tagal ko maka move on sa story na yan hanggang ngayon di pa ako nakakamove on.... I am really excited for SDTG Movie... I cant wait to watch it...
