I stroked her face and dahan-dahan ko siyang hinalikan sa labi. Isang luha ang kumawala sa kanyang mga mata. I squeezed her hand and wiped that tear again. Tiningnan ko ulit si Mariel. She was asleep – just like that.  Continue reading

Sa Kanya – Chapter 8: Ralph’s POV

008 : RALPH’S POV

Life in college was hard. I was a nursing student and well, everyone knows how hard it is to be one. Duty starts at 6am and ends up at 2pm. Sometimes, if you’re lucky, you’ll get to have a 10pm shift to 6am. Then you can sleep all day. Pero hindi e, random masyado. But then it was fun kasi jologs kaming lahat sa batch namin, moreover sa section namin. We balance our study and fun. Minsan nga, may mga katropa ako na pag nagduduty eh ang pupula na ng mga mata.. yun pala nakainom. Ganoon. Di maiiwasan yun.  Continue reading

[Mikel]

We went to EK and just enjoyed the day. Grabe yung mga rides na sinubukan namin. Ako nga eh mejo nasusuka na, pero si Mish, full of energy parin. Pero finally, tumigil narin kami sa kakasakay at kakasigaw sa mga rides. We even went to the Horror House at ayun, kung pwede lang siya kasuhan ng abuse, why not. Pano naman kasi no, everightime na may sumusulpot na “mumu”, as what she calls it, eh pinupukpok niya ng sapatos niya, which was really a pain in the body.Sabi nga ng iba, disiplinahin ko daw yung girlfriend. Ngumiti nalang ako sa kanila at hinila siya palabas.  Continue reading

It’s been 5 months since nagkasama kami ni Mikel. And honestly, kahit pasaway siya at mejo matigas ang ulo, nasasanay narin ang sarili kong kasama siya. And.. well, I found out something.I think I’m starting to like him.

I’m just liking palang naman him diba? Tsaka wala pa naman akong naaapakang tao e. Hindi naman ako nagfliflirt sakanya or anything.  Continue reading
