004

“Chu, tama ba to?”

“Alin?”

“Yung.. tungkol kay-”

“Kay Ralph ba?  Anu ka ba no? Ikaw yung nakipagbreak noon sa kanya, so okay lang iyan. Mas awkward kapag ikaw yung nasa lagay ni Ralph..”  Continue reading

Under the Rain – Chapter 4 to Chapter 7

Chapter 4

Nabigla ako dun habang hawak-hawak niya parin yung braso ko. And hey, hindi lang ‘hawak’, sobrang higpit ng pagkahawak na parang mapipisa na yung maliit at maganda kong kamay.  / I couldn’t find my voice, nakatingin lang ako sa kanya, trying to read his mind.   Pero wala e. All I can see is anger na ewan kung ano. Anong amin lang to?  | He looked at Aleck so fiercely, kaya nagsimulang maglakad si Aleck palayo. I even looked at Kyla na nandun din sa kabilang room. She just nodded na para bang ‘go ahead..’ as if alam niya kung anong gagawin ni Kai sakin.

Hinila niya ako papunta sa benches dun sa soccer field. Wala na masyadong tao since wala na rin masyadong practice. Ewan ko ba at parang nainis na rin ako. Kinuha ko yung braso ko sa pagkakahawak niya.  Continue reading

Under the Rain – Chapter 1 to Chapter 3

Chapter 1

It’s been a year narin since pumasok ako sa soccer team. And kahit isang taon na ako dun, hindi parin niya ako napapansin.  Minsan nga sinasabi ko sa sarili ko na tigilan nalang, pero anong magagawa ko? Puso ko na yung nagdesisisyon.

So eto ako ngayon, napahuli ang uwi kesa sa mga kaibigan ko. Tinapos ko pa kasi yung game sa field habang bigla namang umulan. Kaya sabi ni Coach, umuwi nalang daw kami. Let’s call it a day daw. Tumakbo naman ako sa girl’s dressing room, hindi na ako nagshower since mababasa rin naman ako pag umuwi ako e. Nagbihis lang ako at tumakbo sa gate. Dun ako naghintay ng masasakyan. Dala ko yung payong kong pink at binuksan ito habang naghihintay.  Continue reading

Teaser – Epilogue

Epilogue

Everything started with a tease. At sino bang mag-iisip na yung tuksuhan na yun e mapupunta sa pagmamahalan. Siguro teasing was my way of talking with her. At yung panunukso ko e kinainisan niya. Pero, come to think of this. Kung hinde ko ba siya tinutukso noon, magiging close at mapapamahal siya sakin? Would that change everything i have now? Hinde ko alam. Ang alam ko lang, I’m really happy to be with her.  Continue reading

Teaser – Chapter 20

Chapter 20

Gio’s POV

I first met her at my birthday party when I was 5. It was really change because she was introduced to me as my fiancé. Weird but true. She was so cute and pretty and smart. At a young age, I fell in love with her. Well, hindi naman talaga in love, more of a crush. Yeah. I got a crush on a girl at the age of 5.

I really didn’t know how to deal with her since she’s so smart and pretty and well, I’m just another torpe. Sometimes, umiiyak ako habang papasok sa bahay kasi I hadn’t got any chance to talk to her. Sabi ni Mommy, if I like somebody daw at natotorpe akong kausapin siya, teasing could be another way of talking to her.  Continue reading

Teaser – Chapter 16 to Chapter 19

Chapter 16

Pumasok si Mommy sa kwarto ko. Umupo siya sa gilid ng kama ko at hinagkan ako.

“Nathalie.. I’m so sorry.. Hindi ko alam na nasasakal ka na pala sa mga nangyayari.. tama ka, siguro, its time to clear things up.”

At yun nga, nag-usap kami ni Mommy tungkol dun. Humingi siya nang tawad. Pagkatapos ng araw na yun, my parents gave some time to be with me. Kahit busy sila, may nilalaan na talaga silang oras para sakin. And that really felt good.  Continue reading

Teaser – Prologue

Prologue

It was 4 years ago when I last saw him. It was 4 years ago when he left without saying goodbye to me – officially. And I miss him. I really do. Everything about him. And I’m here, waiting – for four years. Hoping that he’ll come back and still feel the same way about me as he felt 4 years ago.

I opened the box that is in my closet. Here are my tears again. Falling unstoppably. I saw the only picture i got na kasama siya. Natawa ako. We looked so funny back then. teasing each other. Walang araw na hindi kami nag-aasaran. That started when we were still in kindergarten. But things changed when we reached our last year of high school.

“Ikaw? Pakakasalan ko? Hahahaha! Are you joking? Never as in n-e-v-e-r!”

“Hahaha. Don’t think something bad. Hindi rin ako pakakasal sa iyo. HellO? dami kayang magagandang babae diyan – mas maganda pa sa iyo. And look at your body o? 23-15-10? Ang payat mo no! Di tayo bagay!”

“Eh ano kung payat ako? Eh ano? maganda naman ako.”

“Bloahwa!!! Masusuka ako.. wait lang..” tumakbo siya kaagad sa labas ng room and kunwari nagsusuka.

Lanhiya talagang lalaki. Nilait pa ang pagkababae ko.

“Tapos na?” tanong ko sarcastically.

“Yuck! Mas malala ka pa ata sa kinain kong panis na tinapay kagabi.”

“You know what? Aaminin ko, guwapo at mayaman ka, pero alam mo kung anong kulang sa iyo?”

“Hindi, kaya nga sasabihin mo e.”

“Sheeeshh… respeto!”

“Yeah, right. At sino ka naman para respetuhin ko?”

“Well, ako lang naman ang mapapangasawa mo balang araw.” I confidently said.

“Yeah right.”

The Ghost in the Cabinet

When I was still a five year old girl, my brother would always scare me by the story about the ghost in my cabinet. He said that when Dad bought our house, there was a little boy who hanged himself inside the cabinet. At first I thought, it was a very bad joke. But my brother reassured me that what he’s saying was totally true. How can that be? He has never even seen the ghost boy at my room nor did I heard or felt it.
