Kiss in the Rain by: Daydreamer

Prologue When once in our life we stop for a while to see if theres something worth fighti ng for, we then realize, how lucky we are to have thought for it for a while and realized that indeed, there is. However, we may think again and ask ourselves i f we really need to fight for it, and then again, well get the answer Yes. Every st ory has its climax and falling action. We may not notice it because sometimes, w eve been too preoccupied about the whole thing, we even forget how things may van ish with a blink of an eye, and this is all because we take so much of everythin g. The next thing we know, there we are, mad, mad because the only thing that ma kes us so happy is taken away from us. And then we regret being happy. We wish t hat everything was just a bad dream, we forget how to act when somethings taken a way from us, yet before when we were still enjoying it, we were working so effic iently. Why is that? From experiences like those, we pause for a while, think an d go on with our lives. Afterwhich, well simply bear in mind that everything was just a nightmare, and then next, we learn to dream again. We dream to have somed ay the perfect love. The kind of love we planned, but is there really a perfect lo ve? I dont know, I dont know unless you try it yourself. I dont even know what is lo ve Not until I found this page from a notebook of my little friend.

She was little when she wrote it, but I think shes right. I finally knew what lov e is when I met this hero. And it all started because hes been my puppy love..

CHAPTER 1 Puppy love

I was walking with bunch of stuffs with me, I look so helpless, nobody cared to help, siguro kasi di nila nakita ung maamo kong mukha kasi that big box Im carryi ng is so big that it covered my face, well except for my eyes, of course. Need he lp? Oh sure! I would love to Pagkuha niya ng box, I was like o_O Mukhang ayaw mo ata eh. A-ahh, of course not! Then, lets go OMG! Its him! My crush. Gosh!!!!! Sa lahat wedeng mag alok ng tulong siya pa, ang bait ni Lord. We were walking papunta sa classroom, by the way the box was filled with things needed for our play. Thanks No problem Ms. Superwoman Superwoman ka jan. Loko Kung hindi ka ba naman nagpapakasupe r di sana tinawag mo yung mga kaklase mo para tulangan ka magbuhat nito, total, its your class project, buti na lang.. Oo na, buti na lang at nanjan ka para tulung an ako Got it, galing mo manghula Lul! Its pretty obvious you know? I know. oh here are Di ko na namalayan na nakarating na kami, ang bilis naman. Ampf. Ok, Thanks a lot Mr. Superman.. a lot! I was in cloud nine, ang ngiti ko abot tenga, I did not even notice my classmates, they were staring at me and they were laughing, I kin da look stupid they said Huy ! Wake up, hes gone na, kanina pa! You look so funny Rhi a, alam mo bang 5 minutes ka ng tulala jan?

SUPERWOMAN! sigaw nilang lahat and they laughed >_< Cut it out guys, sana sinabi ni yo no? para I did not look stupid here. Asar! Si Franco a.k.a Superman, crush ko since birth, JOKE ! Seriously, crush ko since elementary, Grade 5, natapos na la ng ang elementary life ko, crush ko pa rin siya, LOL. Patapos na ang High School life ko, crush ko pa rin siya. Ewan ko lang kung anong meron sa kanya, pero one thing is for sure, cute siya, (hmmmm, ang panget naman ng cute, pang aso, mapal itan nga) POGI, oh ayan, kamukha niya si Randy Orton-one of my favorite WWE wres tler. Yah, I watch wrestling. Going back... Hmm, siya talaga ung crush ko, hahah a, nakakatawa, Grade 5 pa ako no n ha, pero hanggang ngayon di pa ako nakakapagm ove on. LOL. And Im proud of myself kasi ni minsan hindi ko inattempt na ligawan siya, JOKE !, sino ba namang tanga, gagawa no n? Seriously, kahit gano n ko na siya katagal naging crush hinding-hindi ko siya nilandi. Hinayaan ko na lang si destiny na umeksena sa long-time-admiration ko sa kanya. Well, in that way, ma s masaya, kasi you re not expecting something eh, parang come what may , hindi ka masasaktan kasi hindi mo naman talaga sineryoso, matutuwa ka na lang ng bongg ang-bongga kasi may nangyari na unexpected na nagpakilig sa yo. SURPRISE ! Pero sa lahat ng kilig moments with him, eto ung pinakabongga, retreat namin un eh, t apos, part of it eh ung kadramahan na part, ung confession something, ikaw na ba hala kung sino gusto mong lapitan, at kung ano gusto mong sabihin, so it lasted for more than an hour, tapos, sabi agad ng principal, ok, that s enough, you ma y now go back to your rooms and sleep , eh masunurin ako kaya naglakad na ako pa punta sa room namin, and then I heard a familiar voice, tumibok ng mabilis si he art... Rhia tawag ni Franco Oh?, sino yan??? madilim eh kaya di masyado klaro , nagulat na ako, na kinabahan, na nasiyahan, na ewan, gusto kong sumigaw sa kil ig, kunwari di ko kilala ung tumawag sa akin. Ui, Franco, ikaw pala yan lumaka d siya papalapit sa akin na may open arms, about-to-hug gesture pwede pa-HUG? Oh my God ! Nananaginip ba ako oh what ?!!!! As in, si heart parang may hinahabo l na magnanakaw sa sobrang bilis ng pagtibok, grabe ! para na akong nasa heaven. Ohhh, Franco....... I hugged him so tight. sabay sabi.... May confession ako , alam mo ba, crush kita since grade 5 up to now, you made me so happy when you greeted me personally no ng 15th birthday ko- para akong mabaliw sa tuwa non kun g alam mo lang etc. Ang rami kong sinabi ha, tapos siya wala, *speechless*. Nak akatawa and pretty embarrassing, errrr. Tapos nag-usap na kami, siyempre umupo, umupo sa ground, nakasandal ako sa kanya, siya rin and our hands? we were holdin g each others hands. That moment was so magical, if I could just slow it down, I did, kung pwede pa nga ipause, basta, I did not want to end that perfect moment . At natapos na kaming mag-usap, tapos nagHUG kami ulit. H.E.A.V.E.N. Oh, after a few steps he said Rhia I will miss you.. a-ann-d. I love you. BYE ! GOOD NIGHT! Pa tapos niyang sinabi un, tumakbo agad siya, nawala ng parang bula. Ampf. Pero wai t ! Totoo ba yung narining ko? OMG! For real !? He said that !? Jusko. He said I love you. He did! I tried to slap my face as hard as I could, to check if Im ju st daydreaming again or not, but I felt the pain, so hindi nga ! Totoo nga, toto o nga ! Wow ! I was screaming like hell after that. Naglakad na ako papunta sa g azebo. Tulala. Am I dreaming or what? I never thought that things would turn ou t this way. After 6 long years??? Imagine! Therefore, there s always a time for everything, minsan nga lang delayed, BUT, when it comes to you, you ll be surpri sed, happier than how you expected. SUBARASHII! yan ung nakatatak sa isip ko af ter everything, still cant believe it happened. (subarashii- amazing)

HELLO?! Are you ok?! pasigaw na sabi ni Alex but I did not answer. Ok, I think some thing happened, lets leaver her alone, umandar na naman ung sakit nyan Hindi ko na pinansin yung sinabi ni Alex. That s it, the best moment I ve had with him, my l ongtime crush. And forever crush. Iba talaga ang happiness na bigay ni destiny pag crush lang.... its more than expected. Tapos, suprise pa. Walang lose , wa lang pain . So naiwan ako sa may gazebo mag isa, I stayed there for almost an h our, alone, pabalik na ako sa room *teeeetteeeeet* From: Jake Kami na ni Mel, Im so rry I wasnt able to hold on, masyado ka kasing busy eh. Thanks and Goodbye. WTF?! I was devastated, he fooled me, and Ive been fooled all this time. Walang hiya s iya. I ran back to the gazebo para maglabas ng sama ng loob, and I was crying wh ile running. I was crying so hard, I even punch my self cause I was so pissed of f, and then someone tapped my back and offered me a handkerchief and hugged me s o tight. Its ok, andito lang ako Its not ok ! he fcking fooled me! I looked stupid t he whole time, I was blind, Leche, do I even deserve this, my pride, its ruined, akala niya kung sino siya, he could have cut his courtship if thats so, gago siya !

I cant believe this is happening, I cant believe he did this to me, and who is he anyway? Dumbass!, leche, di ako nagkakaganito because I lov e him that much, nooo way! Never. EW! its just that, my pride as Rhia, its ruine d, sa lahat ng pwedeg tratuhin ng ganito bat ako pa?! kapal niya ah! Humanda yung g agong yun, makikita niya Franco mumbled Ano yun? still sobbing Wala, Stop crying, its not good seeing you that way, nawawala yung ganda mo, hindi ka na tuloy mukhang superwoman Psssh, loko, but thanks, you made me smile there. Buti na. Buti na lang a ndito ako?. I know. Para san ba ang pagiging superman ko kung hindi ako to the re scue diba?

Ah yun??? sige na matulog na tayo, yung eye bags mo oh, ang laki na parang balloon, tara na hatid na kita Pshhh, fine Nakarating na kami sa room ko. I hugged him Thanks ulit, youre really superman huh? Thanks Youre a lways welcome, always remember. Boku ga iru Boku ga kimi wo mamotte ageru.. Eien (B oku ga iru Boku ga kimi wo mamotte ageru.. Eien-Im here, I will protect you Forever) And umalis na siya. Hindi ko pa pala nakukwento why I was so hysterical after re ceiving that text, so Jake WAS my suitor, he WAS courting me for bout 5 months al ready, and I was starting to like him, I WAS planning to answer him soon, he WAS nice, he said convincing promises and I was stupid to believe those. Thats why Im so pissed because, all this time, he was also courting his

bestfriend, and I got no clue, I was blind.But the fact that he ditched me didnt let me feel broken hearted EW. Just insulted. After all he said, he did this?! &% !$#~@&. But honestly, right after Franco comforted me, I almost forgot what happ ened. Francos POV Gago din yung lalakeng un ah! Humanda siya pag nagkita kami, makikita niya talaga. Tama si Rhia, sa lahat ba naman ng pwede niyang lokohin siya pa? S i Rhia pa?! Wala, Stop crying, its not good seeing you that way, nawawala yung ga nda mo, hindi ka na tuloy mukhang superwoman Dagdag jan, it hurts seeing her that way, pati ako nasasaktan rin, I dont even know why, shes special to me, even if s he dont know and even if I dont show her I do. Lintek na! Bwiset talaga ung Jake n a un, pag nakikita ko talaga sila magkasama ni Rhia, may something talaga eh, ew an ko, basta, kumukulo yung dugo ko! Asar! Hindi ko matanggap-tanggap na pinaiya k niya si Rhia, LOSER! He hurt the wrong girl. Akala mo kung sinong gwapo, di ha mak na mas gwapo naman ako sa kanya no ! AMPF! He should have thought about it f irst before doing it. Hell see, hell see. JAKE! *blapak* Next time, maghanap ka ng ma s karapat-dapat lokohin! Gago ka! you should have seen her you dumbass! Kapal mo rin ha para gawin yun sa kanya dont you ever do that again. NEVER! Kung hindi, di lang yan ang aabutin mo! He was there, on the floor, di man lang nakapagsalita a t nakaganti sa mga sinabi ko Naglakad na ako and. By the way ! Wag na wag ka ng mag papakita kay Rhia, or else! At lumayo na ako. Sana nakita niyo yung mukha niya, h alos di makapagsalita! In fact, kulang na kulang pa yon sa lahat ng ginawa niya kay Rhia. Kapal talaga ng gagong yun! Anyway, pano ba to, gagraduate na kami pero wala pa akong nasasabi kay Rhia?! Naman oh! Shes too perfect, matalino, maganda, mabait, masipag. eh ako? Ang layo ko sa kanya

CHAPTER 2 Graduation

Rhias POV By the way I havent introduced myself yet. My name is Rhia Margarette La o. Im 16 years old. I was born in Japan, I lived there for 4 years and went here in the Philippines. Ive been staying here with my family, but we always visit Jap an, since my grandparents and other relatives live there. Im a graduating student , Valedictorian, campus journalist, girl scout, artist, and singer. Kiddin with t he singer, Im a frustrated singer but not a pro. My life is toxic but I try to en joy it as much as I could. Graduation Day (March 24 2011) Im excited. Yes, this d ay marks the end of my high school life, and Im up to a new challenge, its time t o say see you soon to everyone. I was anxious though. *exciting, cant wait to see everybody else* Perfect. Pagpasok na pagpasok ko sa auditorium I heard my favour ite song, Crazy for you, actually its my song for Francis, ano kayang pinapahiwati g ni destiny? Di ko na lang pinansin and I continued walking, searching for my cla ssmates. Nakikita ko na si Alex, sa sobrang excitement tumakbo ako, and suddenly bumped to someone Oh my! Im sorry Naman oh! Ang bait ni destiny, si Franco pa talaga nakabangga ko, at Crazy for you pa ang kanta ha, wait, diba graduation to? tapos na po yung prom diba? ^_^ Nakahiga si Francis ako naman nakadapa sa kanya. Ok, its not as awkward as you think it is. Sorry Francis, Gomen (gomen-sorry) U-uh, its oo-ok, pwede bang bumangon ka na? Ampf >_< Stupid me, kung di ba naman ako tanga no? Bat di ko kaagad naisip yun? Embarassing Rhia, EW. UIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, Ang sw eet ah! asar nilang lahat na nakakita sa amin. Tsss, cut it out! Oh, Rhia, congrats in advance, galing mo talaga, superwoman! Thanks Franco, youre part of it, superman R eally?! Wow, good to hear that. Anyway, ok ka na ba? Pfft. Ang ganda na ng pinaguusapan namin tapos biglang nagshift ng topic, asar! Ha? Ah, siyempre naman, si s uperwoman ata to! Bilib talaga ako sayo.ahmmm Rhia.

Franco, gtg na, tinatawag na nila ako, see you later, congrats! Ok, stupid, why di d I rush myself? I think my sasabihin pa siya eh, *stupid* So, the ceremony star ted, I was the last in line, pfft. Its kinda embarrassing, everyones standing pa to wait for the last person to march, di naman sa masyado kong finfeel yung pagk atop ko pero thats how I feel eh, but despite it, Masaya kasi ang sarap sa feelin g na pinapalakpakan ^^ Boooring, the speeches were boring, no offense pero di ak o natablan. Hihihi, excited din kasi akong magspeech eh. Oh well while the guest speaker is talking *teeeet..teeeet* From: SUPERMAN Ngayon ko lang napansin, ang g anda mo ngayon ah, nakatalikod kasi. HAHAHA. Loko lang, seriously you look stunn ing. Good luck sa speech. How sweet of him to text me in the middle of the cerem ony. Eto na naman si heart, umeeksena na naman, di naman napapakali, akala mo ma y trampoline sa katawan ko, ang bilis ng tibok eh! I secretly replied. The hell I care, kahit nasa front ako, no one can stop me from doing what I want. Gagradu ate pa rin ako kahit nagtetext ako sa front row while on going ang speech ng gue st speaker. Im breaking the rules now. ^_^ To: SUPERMAN Stop fooling around, pero thanks. You look like a pro too. By the way, get ready with the speech, may gag awin ako. HAHAHA! hihingi na ako ng sorry ngayon, total last na naman eh. Watch out. Di na talaga ako nakinig sa speech. nagtetext na lang kami ni Franco. From: SUPERMAN Oh no, is it what Im thinking? Are you dancing.. or singing??? Either of the two. Tsss. dont even think about it Rhia. Ang ganda pa naman ng panahon. What ever. HAHA. Hes such a fortuneteller, how did he know? And FYI, my voice isnt that bad to cause the weather from changing, in fact it invites it to be better. Sor ry for being such a narcissist right there, ganon lang talaga ako kafrustrated pe rformer, nagiging super illusionada. Damedesuyo! (Damedesuyo-bad!) Hindi na ako nagreply. But a thought came to my mind. So random. But I always think about it whenever my achievements build up pressure and walls. Thats what directly came to my mind, my achievements. I think its one of the reason why Franco and I did no t get along that well, hmm, we dont fight or quarrel but what I mean is I think h e looks at me like Im someone but I really dont think so. Halos lahat naman sila e h, ganonn yung sinasabi, kesyo, ganito ako, kesyo ganyan. Tsss. Gusto niyo sa iny o na lang to lahat para maging masaya ako? Im happy having these things but some times nakakasakal na eh. Sabi ko nga, it builds wall, like with Francos I guess. Cut it out Rhia, there you go again with your wide imagination. Huy! Neil said as he waved his hand 7 centimetres away from my face. Ginulat mo ako ah! Hello po, tin atawag ka na oh! Sh*it, my speech, ako na pala, thanks Neil! Crap, panic mode yun a h, everyone was staring at me already and clapping their hands, napakalate ng re action ko, it took me 5 seconds to respond and stand while they all clap as I wa s acknowledged. *stupid*

I started my speech, clich format... I greeted the important persons in the cerem ony, for formalitys sake. And went on As I reach the part where I thank my classma tes, I started to cry. Weak. Nakakahiya, in front of everyone? Oh please, cut it out Rhia, Shoot, tears were like cars on the expressway, they drop so fast and there were plenty of them. Ang talino ko rin at pati panyo ko naiwan ko sa purse na nasa sit ko. STUPID! Everyone was mumbling. Malabo na ung paningin ko kasi b arado na ng luha ung mga mata ko. It was pretty embarrassing huh, until I see so meone come close to me. Franco. He went to the stage and gave me his handkerchie f. Strike 2 superman ! Everyone sighed and clapped for that thoughtful act of Fr anco. sabay sabi YEEEHAAAAA Teka, kayo ba yung inofferan ng panyo para kiligin ng ganyan? ^^ After a minute of drama, nakapagsalita ako balik. My bad. I was used to speaking in front of the crowd and one major rule ng mga public speaker is not to apologize in public and so I did. Instead of saying sorry for that drama I sa id. Drama much? Its part of my speech actually tumawa sila lahat, though Im not do ne yet. Just kiddin. Seriously thats how emotional I am when it comes to saying goo dbye to the persons who made my high school life. PERFECT. Thats how I love every one. And they all sighed, makikita mong natouch ung mga mokong, but its true. I l ove everyone, my batchmates. Before I end my speech, siyempre may ginawa ako par a matandaan nilang ako ung Valedictorian ng batch namin. For the last time, this ones for all of you sings Sanay pag-ibig na lang ang isipin ng bawat isa sa mundo its the line I always sing, everywhere, to anyone They all moaned and stand up to giv e their best claps. Touch naman ako. Ganon ba talaga kaganda yung boses ko? talo ko pa ata si charice at jovit ah. Loko lang ^^ Natapos na yung ceremony at nagsi lapitan na yung mga parents. Congrats baby! Were so proud of you Thanks mom, thanks dad Hinanap ko na ung mga friends ko. Sila Alex, Joan, Kyri at mga classmates, es pecially si Superman na to the rescue kanina. Nakita ko na yung mga friends ko p ero si Franco hindi pa. Ampf, san ba kasi nagsuot yun? Congrats dude! greet ni Joan with a big grin. Ikr? inaasar ako nito sa nangyari kanina. Ang galing mong umart e ha, speaker ka nga, pati un, nalusutan mo of course Kyri knows I was acting. Gr eat. Pati ba yung pagrescue ni Superman, part of the speech? Whatever, you got me o k? it was all acting, I was just trying not to screw things up, but the cry was really due to my emotion and that HERO? that was.. unexpected. HEAVEN. by the way, CONGRATS dudes ! Graduate na tayo! Tingnan mo to, nirescue nga lang ni superman m untik na makalimutan bumati. Nagtatampo na ako niyan ah. drama naman ni Alex. Ano ba best, stop acting, di bagay sayo !

Nagtawanan kami, nagpapicture, at nag-iyakan. Its so dramatic, I know. Bothered pa rin ako kasi di ko mahanap-hanap si Franco. Di pa ako nakakapagthank you sa k anya ah. Nag-aalala na talaga ako kasi unti-unti ng nauubos ung tao sa auditoriu m, no! Where is he?!! Huy!, May hinahanap ka ba? Lord, ang bait mo talaga! Its Fr anco. Napansin niya siguro na kanina pa ako di mapakali. *you scared me there!* *iy akin* he teased Stop it. By the way, naka strike 2 ka na superman, THANK YOU SO MU CH!

Silang lahat nasa akin na yung atensyon, ikaw na lang yung hindi, you wer e too alone with your iPod, busy singing Crazy for you. And you stop kasi nalipat yung atensyon nila sayo, then you looked at me. Our eyes met again. Enjoy and. See you soon! -SupermanCloud nine. I remembered that kinda humiliating yet kilig mo ment. Napakaromantic naman nitong lalakeng to. Mahuhulog na ata ako sa kanya ah, but the question will he catch me If I fall? Psssh. cut it out Rhia. While I was standing and the music is playing, isa-isa na silang nagtayuan at nagbigay ng bl ue rose sa akin. What is this for? tanong ko sa kanilang lahat but no one gave me the clear answer, not even Kyri, Alex and Joan. Great >_< John was the last pers on who gave me the blue rose, with a note. Superwoman, Youre almost there. I hope you had fun. Umalis ka na dyan. See you so on. -SupermanPatience Rhia. Patience. Total, nag-eenjoy ka naman eh, so ok lang. Franco is a genius, how could he make me feel so happy with all these things? K ahit wala siya, masaya pa rin. Eh kasi naman, lahat ng nangyayari parang inungka b niya sa treasure box ko. What more kung andito siya sa tabi ko? H.E.A.V.E.N. B umalik na ako sa sasakyan. Kuya Roy welcomed me with a big grin. Malapit na tayo Rhia, chill ka lang.

Ang kulit naman ng alaga niyo kuya Roy Sinabi mo pa, ganon yun pag tinam----- What wa s he suppose to say, why didnt he finish it? Ampf. pati ba naman siya mahilig mam bitin. Naman oh! Ano po yun? Ah, eh, wala Aw, pero in fairness, kahit ganito, sobran g nakakatuwa, I could not imagine how he remember all these stuffs, never though t hes good in keeping memories too. Nakatulog ata ako sa sasakyan, pag gising ko, nasa mall na kami. I mean, nagstop na kami sa parking lot ng mall. Now what?! I pagshohopping niya ba ako? Hindi ko na alam, napakaunredictable ni Franco. Maam Rh ia? Yes, its me. Someone told me to give this to you Of course, a blue rose again WIT H a note. Superwoman, Konting-konti na lang talaga. I hope you enjoy this part. I cant wait to see you. See you soon. -SupermanGreat. Konting-konti na lang talaga. I hope so. But, Im having fun though, Im just really excited to see him kaya ako nagkak aganito. Pinasakay ako nung lalake na nagwelcome sa akin sa golf car. He drove m e inside the mall papunta somewhere. I dont know where. I almost forgot. Opening pala ngayon ng mall na to kaya ang raming tao, and they were all staring at me. * blush* Wait, if Im not wrong, ako siguro yung pinakauna nakasakay ng golf car sa mall na to. Subarashii! Ganito itsura ng mga tao o_O Nagstop na yung ride, and I m here at their movie house. Winelcome ako ng girl sa ticket booth. Welcome Ms. L ao tapos nag smile siya, yung asta niya parang ako yung may ari ng mall ah. Tapos sinamahan niya ako papasok. Capital W-O-W, as in WOW! Ang ganda ng movie house nila. Pagpasok ko walang tao.Pffft. Ako lang mag-isa, ano ba to. Pinaupo niya ako sa isang seat, special seat, kasi yun lang yung naiiba sa lahat ng seat eh. Its a fluffy couch, color blue with white stripes, the style of the shirt he wore wh en we first saw each other. Hahahayyy, what else can I say? Umupo na ako. And I started to here some voice. Sh*t. It scared me, ako lang kaya mag-isa no? or NOT . Lahat ng classmates ko nasa upperbox. Lul! *in 3,2,1* tapos nagstart na ung fi lm. I was clueless kung anong ipapalabas. Not until I saw it. res. Franco and I. Well, not together, parang pinagsama lang sa isang slide. Whe n I saw the picture of the BOTH of us, yep, heard it right, as in kaming dalawa magkasama, wow, how did we have that picture? picture naming nung retreat, ung wer e back to back and holding hands Ang ganda ng picture, hindi halatang stolen. Our silhouette looks perfect. Its soooo editorial. But what made it so special was the quote under it.

Shiet, inaatake na ata ako ditto eh. I cant breath, lec he naman tong si heart oh, di nagpapaawat, grabe, ang bilis ng pagtibok. Halos h imatayin ako dun ah. Hindi lang yun, hindi lang pictures, videos din. As in VIDE OS. Para na akong sirang plaka sa kakatanong ng How did he?!, adik siya, How did h e get these videos? di ko nga alam na may video pala yun. Im referring to our ch eerdance competition. Siya kasi yung lifter ko. Im always confident when I execu te stunts, kasi alam kong siya yung sasalo sa akin. Uhhh, those were the days. A nd what made the video amazing is kaming dalawa yung parating nakafocus. Ano ba? ! Hahaha, Stalker pala si Franco eh ! Lul! Loko lang. After an hour, wow, an hou r, inabot pala ng isang oras yun, lumapit yung babae sa akin at nag-abot ng note . Superwoman, I cant wait to see you! -SupermanYes!

Not the ordinary smile, its his killer smile, which made me more excited. Ms. Rhia, andito na talaga tayo. ENJOY! at nagpaalam n a si Kuya roy. Tumawid na ako. While I was walking, I feel like, ang bagal ng or as. I feel like I was taking small steps, Im having mixed emotions, after what ha d happened throughout the day. Wew, its like I was slowly reaching a star. Dropp ing by through stores that would provide me equipments to pursue my journey in r eaching the star. And now, Im almost there, a grasp is all it takes to reach the star. One grasp. Almost there. Almost. Rhiaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!! Napalingon ako kay Franco as he ran after me. Tumingin ako sa gilid ko and nakakita ako ng liwa nag. *BOOM*

CHAPTER 4 Chuckie Doll

Francos POV .. Help! Someone, please! Help!!!!!!!!!, call 911, Help!!!! The ambulance arrived. We reached the emergency room 10 minutes after the accident. The doctor s are trying to save Rhia at the moment. Unti-unti ng nagdatingan yung relatives niya, pati friends. We were there, waiting. I cant hold the pain anymore, kaya u malis na lang ako. I was devastated. When I saw her innocent face in that situat ion where I acted so late, I felt so weak. I tried to save her but I was too lat e. My world was devastated, my heart was torn into pieces, and my life was usele ss. I became useless. Im supposed to be her hero, to be superwomans superman. Im su pposed to rescue her, to save her life, to do whatever it takes for the one I lo ve. Even if I have to risk my own in the name of love. Oo, I love her, Mahal ko siya, I love Rhia so much. So much. It was devastating to see her in that scenar io, but, what makes it harder..hardest was the fact that I wasnt able to tell her, h ow much I love her. I havent got the chance, to tell her I love you. No, I had the chance. I always do. But I chose not to. I let it pass, I always let it pass, wh ich made me feel worst. Unti-unti akong pinapatay ng panghihinayang. I should ha vent done everything, masyado ko pang pinahaba, I could have made it simple. I co uld have simply said I love you Rhia. Now, shes gone. My superwoman is gone. I foun d no reason to live. No reason to breath and no reason to wake up each morning. Shes the reason why I face the day though it seems like there is no reason to wak e up for, her smile, her presence, its already enough, its more than enough. Shes the reason why I continue breathing, though everything around me stifles me, a glance from her effortlessly tells me, to breathe and keep breathing. Shes the re ason why this heart of mine keeps beating. A glimpse from her gives this heart e nough fuel to keep running. She means everything to me, Rhia makes me want to li ve every single day and love her more. I love her that much. I love her that muc h. But I wasnt able to tell her so. Papano na si superman? wala na si superwoman sa palibot niya. I failed. Im a failure. Nagkulong ako sa kwarto ko. I turned off my cellphone. I no longer open my computer. I dont answer the phone calls. I dont watch the tv, I dont open the radio. I did not bother to ask bout Rhias condition. Ayoko ng masaktan, takot ako sa maririnig ko. It might kill my conscience. It m ight kill me softly. Naduwag ako sa nangyari. Sinisisi ko pa rin yung sarili ko. I still cant get over it.

*tok-tok* Marion, tumawag si mommy.. she booked you a flight to Japan. she wants to see you daw Since di ko binuksan , dun na lang sinabi ni ate Cheska. My mom must h ave heard of what happened. Siguro nag-aalala na yun. Malamang. Right. I should go. Mamamatay ako sa sobrang depress if I stay here in the Philippines. What am I waiting for? I packed my things. I did not hesitate anymore, para san pa ba yu ng pagsstay ko dito? Eh wala na rin yung babaeng nagbibigay buhay sa bawat araw ko? My everything is gone, because of me. Tama na siguro tong gagawin ko, maybe in this way, I can slowly move on, forget about everything, and slowly accept re ality. Life must go on no matter what. That was one of Rhias statements in her va ledictory address. Shes right, I must go on. for her, I will. Mahihirapan ako, at masasaktan pero gagawin ko ang lahat ng to para sa kanya. Ill still be superman. Il l try to bring back superman, even if wala na si superwoman. Marion! Tara na, 6 p m na, alas otso yung flight mo, traffic pa naman, bilis na Tinatawag na ako ni Ku ya Roy. Aalis na ako. Goodbye. Nasa eroplano na ako papuntang Japan. Ill be staying there for good. Ill start a new life and Ill dedicate everything to the one I alw ays love. Rhia Margarette Lao. Francooo! wait for me, dont leave me, I love you, I always do. Dont leave me! You said youll always be there to protect me. Please. D oooont! This is Captain Matsu. Please fasten your seatbelts, were about to take off in a few minutes Amp! Nananaginip lang pala ako. But its not a good dream, it MIG HT not be, minumulto ba ako ni Rhia? or, do I really have to go back to the Phil ippines? Stop. I already made my decision, magmomove on na ako para sa kanya. Bu t one thing will remain forever, I may disappear just like a shooting star but m y heart will always stay. Ill be yours forever, I love you until forever Rhia Furank o! *here, I missed you son!* sinalubong ako ni mommy. *I missed you too mom* Are you ok son? the expression in her face changed. From excited to devastated. Tsss. Hai , Im almost ok, lets go! *Ok, lets go, I have a surprise for you* Did I hear it right Si mommy my surprise? Sus, as far as I can remember that last time he surprised me was during my 5th birthday, he changed the interior design of my room, from babys to grown ups. She made me so happy that time. Andito na kami, my home in Nih on. Walang nagbago, except for. my r.o.o.m. Eto ba yung sinasabi ni mommy na surp rise? She did not get me, di ako nasurprise. Normal lang, like my room in the Ph ilippines. Inayos ko na mga gamit ko at lumabas. Yum. I can smell teppanyaki. My favourite food. Son, halika na, *lets eat* Itadakimasu Ang sarap, I missed this ha kumakain kami. May nagdodorbell, binuksan nung housemaid namin. Oh. Its.

By the way Nika, is my childhood friend, her parents and my parents are business partners since then, thats how wed become friends, parati pa nga kaming inaasar na bagay daw kami at da pat kami daw yung magkatuluyan. Amp that was so long time ago. And Im not intere sted. Never. Hindi na kami nagkita at nagcommunicate nung sa Pinas na ako tumira . Hey Franco! I missed you Hinug niya ako, Oh well. I was surprised. but NOT in a good way. Hey Nik, long time no see. Kulang na lang sabihin ko get off me. Siguro she was expecting me to say I missed you too. No way. Never. Not to her. Kamusta na? Its been a while na rin oo, marunong siyang magtagalog, pero full Japanese si ya, she just studied the language for me. Tssss. Mom, Nika, excuse me muna, sumak it ulo ko, siguro dahil ata sa byahe, sa kwarto muna ako Ok Sabay nilang sagot. Asa aaaaar ! Sa lahat ng pwedeng magwelcome sa akin bat siya pa? That spoiled Chuckie Doll !!! She pisses me off. I almost killed her for choking her until she can h ardly breathe when I was 4 years old. Eh kasi, while nagshoshower ako after ng s wimming class namin, she was peaking at me, WITH her chuckie doll friends, WITH a camera. *&%#@!^&*!!!! Hindi lang yan yung ginawa niya sa akin, marami pa, too many to mention, ika nga nila. Gusto ko na tuloy bumalik sa Pinas. Naman oh! Hey Franco Im glad youre finally here I hugged her and kiss her on the chicks. Heeeeey, w at was that for? yung expression niya parang nagulat na natuwa na confused. Gusto ko lang Ha? Wala, sabi ko, you look stunning Ahhhthanks she said as I pulled the let her sit. Franco. yung expression niya sobrang confused, parang takot. ewan, pati ako nalilito. Yes Rhia? kinabahan ako dun ah I dont understand why youre doing all o this if this is some kind of a jjjoo. Joke? Oh please nahulaan ko na naman pero, I s ear, HINDI to joke, di ko kayang lokohin si Rhia, I love her. Franco, natatakot a ko.. I think Im falling for you bb-ut Im afraid. natigilan siya, takot nga siya, pa o di nakapagsalita.. .. and she broke the silence Im afraid you wont catch me yun la eh! akala ko naman Im afraid kasi di pwede . Naunahan niya ako. Nauna siyang mag tapat. Ano ba to?! Ganon ba talaga ako kaslow? o, Ganon talaga siya ka spontaneous? Pffft. Haahahaha natawa ako, siguro sa sobrang saya at sa maling akala niya Im serio us! Im tired of being left behind, I always end up looking stupid, Ayoko na!, Ive had enough heartaches, ayoko ng madagdagan, mas lalong ayoko ikaw ang makasakit sa a..

I cant hurt you, I will never hurt you. Rhia, di mo ba nakikita? What?! I LOVE YOU R ! .. natigilan siya. Since the first time I saw you, I dont know, but my heart alway ells me ikaw na nga, you are everything, you mean everything to me, my world tur ns because of you, ako si superman dahil ikaw si superwoman. Mahal kita, mahal n a mahal All this time, all this years, nothing ever replaced your place in my hear t, thats how much I love you. will you catch me? Im falling Franco, Ive fallen for y ou Malamang. Mahal nga kita diba? Superman will always catch superwoman. I love yo u.. so much. And then we kissed. While our lips touched, di ko lubos matanggal yun g tuwa and sense of relief sa isip ko, after 6 long years, nasabi ko na kay Rhia , nasabi ko na sa taong mahal ko yung sinasigaw ng puso ko. That moment was so p erfect. I dont wanna enn.. End it. Lintek na! Panaganip na naman! Ano ba?! Hindi ako tinatantanan ng panghihinayang ah. Kahit san ako magpunta, kahit anong gawin ko, naaalala ko pa rin si Rhia. Tinamaan nga talaga ako. Of course. Anim na taon di n yun eh, 6 looooooong years. 365 days x 6 years + 1 day (leap year)= 2191 days. 2191 days, and ni minsan di ko nagawang magtapat. Torpe! But I always plan to d o so, kaso lahat. FAIL. *flash back* 16th birthday ni Rhia yun My plan was already in action, tinulungan ako ng mga classmates niya, it was a surprise celebration . In their classroom. Lunch time hanggang afternoon yung suppose to be time span ng celebration. Walang pasok eh kasi last day na ng exam. Everything was ready. Ginamit naming yung classroom nila, pinalitan namin yung curtains ng kulay pula , its her favourite color. Balloons are everywhere, parang Valentines day, may mu sic band na rin, tapos sa gitna may red chair, yung tipong pang prinsesa tapos on the chair is a red cape, the one superman always wear. And her classmates were wearing red clothes, pati may roses na din yung 15 boys at siyempre, nasa akin a ng 16th rose. Magtatapat na talaga dapat ako non kahit alam kong nililigawan siya nung Jake. Pake ko, suitor pa naman eh, hindi pa naman boyfriend. Guys! Ready na ba lahat? OMG! I cant wait to see everything! react ni Kyri. Ok na tol, game? kinon m na ni Alex. Sige na, magready ka na Franco, tatawagin na namin si birthday girl excited na sabi ni Joan. Ok, ok sagot ko naman na kinakabahan. After 10 minutes. N akabalik na si Joan at Kyri. Wait, bat mukhang wala ata si Rhia? Theyre mumbling, nagtutulakan. Mukhang malungkot yung expression nila, disappointed, yun. Aheh..ahFfranco. Oh? San na si Rhia? I asked. Yun na nga eh wala siya. Ha????? Potek, napa ako sa narinig ko ah.

Where did she go? We called her, shes in the airport. *airplane sound* Yan, nasa ero no na siya, she got the immediate flight to Japan, nagkaemergency daw, her grand pa was rushed to the hospital, mukhang mamatay na daw eh sagot ni Kyri with a sad face. Sorry Franco. Amp. Ganon ako kamalas. Hindi ko naman masisisi si Rhia, kasi s urprise nga diba, di hindi siya aware, pati, emergency din yun kaya wala talaga akong masisisi sa kapalpakan ng plano ko. Since that incident, napanghinaan na a ko, parang feeling ko, hindi talaga pwede. Hmmm. You might want to ask kung baki t ako hesitant sa pagtatapat ng feelings ko? Everybody knows how perfect Rhia is . Well for me she is. Matalino, maganda, mabait, mayaman. Lul! Nagmukha naman ak ong gold digger sa last description. Pffft. Balik usapan, perfect catch na siya. Siguro shes everyones ideal girl. Bobo din yung Jake na yun para saktan siya. Asa r! Napanghihinaan ako kasi, sino ba naman ako? Ano ba naman ang meron sa akin pa ra magustuhan niya ako? Shes too perfect and Im, Im a nobody. Sabi nga sa favourite song niya Youre so close but still a world away. Naging paborito ko tuloy ulit yu ng song na yon. Description ko sa sarili ko? Lazy-spoiled-immature-kiddo and GWAP O. So pag pinagsama mo kami, masyadong incompatible. Amp. Basta! Ewan! Bothered pa rin ako sa mga nangyayari sa dreams ko. Halos everyday na akong ganito. Parat i kong nakikita si Rhia sa panaginip ko. Yep, dreams, not nightmares. Sana pala di na lang ako gumising. At least man lang sa panaginip nakikita ko siya, nagsas ama kaming dalawa at napagtapat ko yung feelings ko. Alam niyo kahit ganito, kah it alam kong wala na si Rhia. theres still a hopeful part of me na nagsasabing shes alive. Siguro, dala na rin ng mga good dreams with her. TEKA. Tama. Wala naman akong balita since the accident diba? I never bothered to check her condition da hil sa sobrang duwag ko. Nabuhayan ako. Maybe my superwoman is alive! Tatawag na s ana ako sa Pinas. But I realized its still 12 midnight, meaning 1 am pa dun. Amp. So bumalik ako sa pagtulog. Franco, okiru (okiru-wake up) Nika is waiting for you d ownstairs WHAT!? That Chuckie doll! Bwiset. Sinisira niya umaga ko ah. Sana di na lang ako gumising, siguro napaniginipan ko pa si Rhia. Lintek. Mag-hintay siya kung gusto niya. Hindi ako bababa. Asarrrr! I know exactly what to do. Tatawag a ko kela Rhia. Ayan na nagriring na. Di ko ma-explain yung nararamdaman ko, Im hop eful pero kinakabahan. Good morning. Laos residence, whos this please? hanep! pati ka tulong nag-eenglish. Good morning, this is Franco, Rhias friend, andiyan po ba siy a? parang nagpapalpitate ako. Wala na siya. Pag dinig ko lang sa word na WALA, paran g pinatay ako ulit. Binaba ko na agad. Sana di na lang ako tumawag. Masyado kasi akong umasa, eto tuloy. Hindi ko napigilan yung sarili ko. Napaiyak ako. Humaha gulhol na parang bata, di ko kinaya. My heart was like torn into pieces for the nth time. *someones knocking*

I did not bother to check who it is. di ko rin binuksan. Patuloy pa rin ako sa pa g-iyak. Nikas POV Franco, I did not bother to wait for you to open the doo Hes crying.. why?? ? .door, hey, genki desu ka? Are you ok? Why are you crying? Hes not answering me. W e havent seen each other for years and this is what Ill see? Whats wrong with him? Naaawa ako sa childhood friend/crush ko. I hugged him so tight. Shhh, stop crying Furanko I tapped his back. But hes not talking yet. Im still confused, its not the usual Franco I see years and years ago. What on earth is happening? Boku-no me-o mite. am I a failure? (Boku-no me-o mite-Look into my eyes) he asked. Doushite? Why are you saying that? Of course not! (Doushite-Why) Im really perplexed here. I mis sed every chance, I let it all pass and now shes gone, my love is gone He was cryin g like a child left alone in a dark room. Wait. He said. SHE who is SHE? Im sort of getting it. Hes broken hearted. Seeing him like this, I can really assure how he loves the girl.. lucky girl. But, WTH?! Whos the girl?! I cant believe she did thi s to Franco. He continued speaking I love her so much, so much that Im willing to g ive up everything I have, even my own life, but its too late, too late. shes gone. ?? ?????? hindi ko man lang nasabi kung gaano ko siya kamahal. Ok, I think understand w hat he said. He wasnt able to say how much he loves the girl? Right? Yah, whateve r, it sounds something like that. Hes devastated. Its obvious. Let it out, Frank let it out I said as he continues to cry. I have an idea. But I dont really know ever y little detail. Maybe its one of the reason why he went back here in Japan? To move on and forget SHE? I guess so. Oh well, its time to show him how much I car e. Ill help him move on. Ill make it up to him, for the years I missed. By the way . Im Nika Louise Nishima. Im 17 years old. Frank, I call him Frank, Franks childhoo d friend. His family and mine are great business partners. Thats how we became fr iends. I live here in Japan. Ive been to the Philippines when I was 5 years old, and it was my first and last visit there. I havent gone back there since that yea r. But marunong ako magsalita ng tagalog. I studied the language to have a good connection with Frank. Hes my puppy love. My crush. Francos POV Damn! Of all people na pwedeng magcomfort sa akin bat si Chuckie doll pa!? Potek. I cant believe I cried in front of her. Bwiset. Ano na kayang iniisip ng babaeng yun? Baka, tumatawa na yun sa nawitness niya. She must be so happy t o see me cry, thats what she wanted before, that Chuckie freak doll and her puppy friends always bully me, they make fun of me all the time. Lintek. Asar! Asar! Asar! Kumukulo tala dugo ko everytime I see her. I almost forgot the tragic answ er with that phone call I made.

Teka. Did I just say almost forgot? No Yes. No Because of that Chuckie doll? I almo st forgot? No, what if shes the answer to everything? Baka siya na yung hinihinta y ko para makalimutan si Rhia? CUT IT OUT! Stop it Franco. NO. Umuwi ka dito sa Japan to move on and forget the love tragedy. Wala sa plano ang maghanap ng kapa lit ni Rhia. Right. At isa pa, wala ng makakapalit sa pwesto niya dito sa puso k o. None. Not even that Chuckie freak. Never and Noooooo way! Mamatay na lag ako na walang asawa at pamilya wahg lang mapunta sa babaeng yun! Ganon ko siya kaayaw . Bumaba na ako para kumain Hey Franco. umalis na si Nika The hell I care mom?!

If you ask me how my 1st day in college went. Its a TOTAL DISASTERRRRRRRR! I hope this wont last. I desper ately hope it wont. Francos POV Nagbalik na ako, nagbalik na si superman para kay superwoman.

Pagbasa ko sa e-mail ni Alex, nabuhayan ako. Unti-unting nabigyang buhay ang dat ing Franco. Sobra ang pasasalamat ko sa Diyos nung nalaman ko ang totoo. Hindi n a ako nagdalawang isip, nagdecide kaagad ako na bumalik sa Pinas, kinausap ko si mommy, nahirapan akong iconvince siya. It took me a month and a week to make he r say yes. Desperado na ako eh, kaya sinabi ko sa kanya na pag hindi niya ako papa yagang umuwi dito, magkukulong ako sa kwarto ko, hindi ako mag-aaral at pag nang yari yun wala ng magpapatuloy sa pinakaaalagaan nilang business. She had no choi ce, I left her choiceless kaya napapayag siya. Pagdating ko dito sa Pinas, tinaw agan ko si Alex, nagulat siya at natuwa. Tinanong ko lahat ng details about kay Rhia. Maswerte ako at pareho ng napiling course yung mommy ko at si Rhia. In tha t way, malaki yung chance na maging magkaklase kami. Kasi pag nalaman ni mommy n a ibang course ang kinuha ko, papabalikin niya ako sa Japan, isa yun sa conditio ns niya bago siya nagyes. Di ko na sinayang oras ko, inasikaso ko na lahat ng re quirements, nag exam at lahat na. Yun yung dahilan kung bakit ako nalate sa enro lment. Maswerte din ako at naging kaklase ko pa si Rhia kahit late enrolee ako. Iba talaga dapat yung section ko, buti na lang at may nagdecide magdrop sa secti on nila Rhia kaya dun ako nilagay ng kung sino mang in-charge sa sectioning. Per o, kahit wala ng bakante sa section nila, gagawin at gagawin ko pa rin lahat par a mapalapit lalo kay Rhia. I have to make it up to her. Ive learned my lesson. Bi nigyan na ako ng second chance.At hindi ko na to sasayangin pa. Supermans mission is all set. I will show her how much I love her, so much than I always do before . This time, I will never let her go, I wont let our story end no more. Pero, nag ulat ako. Bakit parang ang laki ng galit niya sa akin? Inis na inis siya na para ng ang laki ng atraso ko sa kanya. Siguro nalaman niya na ako ang dahilan kung b akit siya naaksidente. Pero, kahit ganon, kahit ano pang mangyari, kahit magalit pa siya sa akin, titiisin ko. Bastat mapakita ko kung gaano ko siya kamahal. Game on. I will continue to fly. Lilipad ako ng lilipad, hindi at hinding hindi ako mapapagod sa paglipad basta bat makasama ko lang si superwoman sa pagipad ko. Pat i, oo. Alam ni Alex na uuwi ako pero sinabi ko na wag muna niyang ipaalam kahit na kanino. Rhias POV My day is over. Thank God it is. I took a shower and surfed the interne t. I want to write a note about the hell day Ive been through, gusto ko sa fb par a in case mabasa ni Franco, makonsiyensya siya sa ginawa niya. Yes! Great idea. T he moment I opened my facebook. Monsters status was first on my news feed it says Sup erman finally found his superwoman K. I dont care hmmm, Do I even look like Im a thi ng or something? Para sabihin niyang nakita niya na ako? And FYI, I did not disa ppear. I just slept like Im dying for 2 weeks. Idiot. Wait, I just said I dont car e. Why am I reacting? Isa ka pang idiot Rhia Ok lang, basta alam ko mas idiot siya Id iot! I slapped my face. Idiot. Why am I talking to myself? Idiot! Anyway, I start ed my note First day in college was H.E.L.L. Its not what you think it is, I wasnt bullied or ditched by bitches, or fell while walking in front of the crowd, not even hit by a ball or sent out from class. Oh I almost did. Its more than those things and its the worst I could possibly experience on the first day of school as a freshmen in college. What it is?

Seeing that guy who ditch me in my dreams. That dreamhunter/ monster a.k.a DISAST ER. While I was typing, nag hang bigla. Eff. Feel na feel ko na yung pagtatype e h kasi lumalabas na yung inis koAsar na notification. Franco Marion Mendoza tagge d you in a post. Tagged me in a what?! Ok, I dont care, bahala siya. But wait, I have to check it, baka its something humiliating, kasi if it is, sasapakin ko na siya the moment I see him as soon as possible, Ive had enough humiliation, and h es one of the greatest contributor, di ko na talaga to palalagpasin. Kinclick ko yung notificaition. I love you Rhia Margarette Lao.my superwoman My superwoman?! An d when did I become his possession?! Kelan mo ba ako titigilan?! Damn you Franco ! Akala ko sa panaginip ka lang nang-aasar, pat ba naman in reality?! Fudge. San a magkaamnesia ako ulit !!! Now na. Inuntog ko yung ulo ko sa pader. Nothing hap pened. Idiot. I dont know what to do. That post must be removed. What should I do ?!! This is certainly a nightmare, its worse than my dreams. Hes hunting me, stal ker nga siya! Asar, pati sa panaginip nakikita ko siya! Fudge!!!! I mean, pati s a panaginip, nagPAPAKITA siya. Monster! Sa blog na nga lang ako magpopost, para walang distorbo. And if he still follows me there, Ill commit suicide. I swear. A sar ! Ooops, binabawi ko yung sinabi ko, I wont commit suicide, not even for that disaster. No way!. Never. Hey Franco Im glad youre finally here he hugged me and kis ed me on the chicks. Heeeeey, what was that for? Gusto ko lang Ha? gusto mo lang? k inawa mo? Kapal ah, pero ok lang, gusto ko din naman eh. Wala, sabi ko, you look stunning Ahhhthanks what a gentleman. Mas nagugustuhan ko siya lalo eh. Franco. This it, sasabihin ko na sa kanya Yes Rhia? there was fear when he answered me.

Oooops, it 2 am, tulog na ata lahat ng tao and Im afraid to get out o f this room baka makakita ako ng something different, at baka mamatay ako sa tak ot kung andiyan man ung dreamhunter na yun. Nagblog ako ulit while I was typing. n apansin ko yung sa left side ng blog ko its my previous posts. Wow, blogger nga t alaga ako Ill read it, anyway I dont want to sleep yet, kung pwede nga lang, di na ako matulog forever eh, Ill read it, maybe it could help me recall my past. I cli cked the latest post. Entitled, Dear you Dear You, Yes you. I don t know what s in you. I honestly and shamefully admit, that sometimes , oh, most of the time, you make me crazy. You were just this typ ical whatever guy who does as a normal guy does, you breath, you talk, you sing, you dance(but not so great), you play and yes, you flirt. And I guess, one thin g is for sure, your confidence is boosting like a tornado, but that doesn t coun t. But I idolize you, for hitting my weakness, I was fighting to prevent this st upidity from coming out but your scent is so strong that I shall admit; I GAVE U P. You made me feel secured when I was bitter, you made me smile when I was anno yed, you made things feel imperceptible when you start talking about funny jokes and false claims and sometimes impossible promises, but these things and more, makes me want to fantasize the impossible and start thinking of the possibilitie s, and again, you hit my weakness and that was me daydreaming; looking like he ll stupid. This feeling is unacceptable, but what shall I say, its already here, I can t help but seek for it, this is something I may be happy for and somethin g I may feel gloomy for. Impermanent are all things, and so shall this be. So, D ear You, I hope you know how I am feeling now, this is nothing serious, just for fun, but please don t laugh when I say You make me feel crazy for you Franco M arion Mendoza.

You rock Franco! tiningnan ni Joan si Fra nco na nasa isang corner lang. Tingnan mo? He saved you, tapos ikaw, akala mo mae expel ka na dahil sa kanya, OA mo magreact, kahit kalian OA ka talaga best! I know , you dont need to stress that out. Last subject na. I still am thinking of how dr eamhunter saved me from the trouble that he himself caused. Why did he do that? How? forget about the how, I think sa smile niya pa lang naconvince niya na si s ir Tirso. Maybe he was softly kille by his conscience and by the stress look in my face. Good for him. Akala ko ganon na siya ka insensitive eh. Hes sort of gentl eman, yes, you heard me right. Im no joking. Hes kind and patient. Kasi kahit gaa no ko kasungit hindi niya pa ako pinatulan. Of course. Masyado naman akong magan da para saktan niya lang ng basta basta. Ok, thats enough. Detention pa pala. Gre at. I went to the sanitary engineers quarter and ask for the cleaning facilities. Yun yung punishment, maglinis sa campus, sa gym where the basketball team curre ntly have their practice at sa faculty room. Perfect, kulang na lang sa cr. Well , this would be so much better and acceptable rather than I get minus points fro m sir Tirsos subject. Anyway, Im no guilty, I myself firmly believe that Im innoce nt. Bahala na sila magjudge, manigas sila sa kakaaccuse.

Nagstart na ako naglakad papaunta sa gym. Rhia! Paglingon ko.. What now?! Ang ganda m o talaga pag nagagalit ka!, sige magalit ka lang. Fudge, what do you need? Is my t hank you not enough? Sobra pa sa enough yun, gusto lang sana kita tulungan eh. Tulo ng maglinis? Yes! I wont say no. Ahh, sige, thats good, thanks in advance sa tulong Its not what you think it is. I only said yes, kais 1st Im not a good cleaner, 2n d masyadong malaki ang campus baka di ko kayanin atmahimatay ako ulit and 3rd Ay oko maglinis mag isa, its simply boring and I will look stupid. But that doesnt i mply na gusto ko siya yung makasama ko. Stop it Rhia, youre acting so defensive. Sh oot, I think he heard it. May sinasabi ka ba? wow, ang lakas ng hearing abilities niya. Wala, lets go, lets start cleaning Ahh, sige We started cleaning sa gym. Wow, bait naman ni time ang daming tao sa gym. Kadalasan Seniors pati basketball playe r who is she? is she new here? shes pretty but meanie, I guess, 2nd day of class, nadetention? Poor girl Pare, sayang chicks na sana kaso detention? ano ba yan! s ino yang lalakeng yan? to may katapat ka na, ang gwapo oh, pinagtitinginan ng lah at ng chicks. Girls, shes a bitch, ang gwapo ng kasama niya. OMG ! Hell. I knew i t. Eff. Buti na lang at di ako mag-isa. Bahala sila, judge till you die people. Anyway, none of your whatever to say is true. Pagtingin ko sa likod, nawala si dre amhunter. Fudge. Iniwan niya ako! I hate him. I knew hes up to something. Fine, m akakapaglinis naman ako ah kahit wala siya. Crap. After 15 long minutes. Here, ha ve a break. Tapos inabutan niya ako ng kitkat, my favourite snack, credits again t o Alex for the info and ice coffee- my favourite drink. Thanks, howd you know? thes e are my favourites stalker! Research uhmm, nakasulat yan sa blog mo eh nabasa niya y ng blog ko?! Youve read it all?! OMG! patuloy na lang ako sa paglilinis, embarrassi ng >_< tapos patuloy din siya sa pagsasalita Not all, halos lahat lang, sinabi mo pa na you love coffee because of its aroma, its taste and its effects. kitkat bec ause its what your kuya eats before taking exams and Ok! Thats eough! Nakakastress, A oko na! Sana pala mag-isa na lang ako naglinis, dinagdagan niya yung problema ko eh. Fudge! Ok. tapos naglinis na din siya.

Are you ready? Tumahimik laha t ayos! di pala ako nag iisa halos lahat pala kami di nakapag-aral. Yahoo! Silence means yes Please give me the summary of the Iliad wala atang makasagot eh An s ng kamay si Rhia. Amp. Yes, Ms. Lao On the tenth year of the Trojan War, tensions rise so high among Achaians. First, Chryses, a priest, asked King Agamemnon to release his daughter but the king refused. Chryses prayed to Apollo to send a pl ague to the Achaians. After nine days of plague, the Achaians demanded Agamemnon to release Chryses s daughter. He agreed with a condition that Achilleus, the g reatest warrior of the Achaians will give him his girlfriend, Briseis. Though he was so mad, he just gave his girlfriend. He prayed to his mother Thetis, a godd ess, to connive with the other gods so that the Achaians will lose their battles and they ll realize how much they depend on him. Thetis spoils Achilleus so she talked to Zeus. The next day, the Trojans counterattacked to the Achaians led b y Hektor, their greatest warrior. After several days of violent battles, Patrokl os, Achilleus s bestfriend asked permission to take the place of Achilleus. Achi lleus agreed and even led Patroklos his armor. But Hektor, with the help of Apol lo and Euphorbos, a minor Trojan warrior, killed Patroklos. When Achilleus knew this, he experienced terrible grief and swore revenge. He asked his mother to gi ve him new suit of armor especially made by Hephaistos, the fire god. The next d ay, Achilleus joined the battle and killed many Trojan warriors including Hektor on a one-on-one battle But Achilleus isn t satisfied. For the next few days, he continually abused Hektor s body in brutal ways, even after Patroklos received a proper funeral. The gods didn t like this, and sent a message down to Achilleu s telling him to give up the body. When the Trojan King Priam, Hektor s father, came unarmed, by night, to ask for his son s body, Achilleus agreed. They ate to gether and experienced a moment of shared humanity. Achilleus granted the Trojan s a grace period to perform their funeral rituals. Then it ended with the funera l of Hektor - though we know that soon Achilleus will die. Very well said Ms. Lao, very well said. Grabe, galing niya talaga sa pagkakaalala ko, napalabas siya sa k lase nung time na eto yung topic namin Galing! Pati si sir Tirso napanganga lahat din kami sa classroom, napabilib niya Diba nga nagkaamnesia siya? Pero bakit yung katalinuhan niya di pa rin nawawala? Amp.

I mean, nagagalit lang sila sa villains not to someone like me Im Im Im her superwoman. Ako na bahala sa kanya Franco dalhin ko mu ya sa guest room.... Sige tol

Alexs POV Matalino nga, careless naman. Maswerte si Rhia kami-kami lang yung kasa ma niya, dahil kung hindi siguro natripan na to. Di kasi nag-iisip eh. Lasing na lasing na siya nakatulog na nga oh Ang gaan talaga niya. Di ko rin maintindihan ka si ang takaw-takaw! niya naman kumain pero yung kinakain niya ewan kung san napup unta. Nilapag ko na siya sa bed iwan ko muna marami pa akong dapat ientertain na b isita. Dont leave me Franco Tssss nahypnotize ata to ng boses ni Franco eh. puro Fran o na lang yung nababanggit. Haaaay. Best. ayun mabuti naman. Mahal ko na ata siya eh nong siya??? Mahal ko na si superman Sabi ko na nga ba. mahal na niya talaga si supe rman niya Sinamahan ko muna si Rhia Napaisip ako pagsabi niyang Mahal ko na si super man. Parang may sumuntok sa akin sa dibdib nasaktan ako. Oo.. tagos to the bones, parang sinampal ako ng hindi sinasadya. Come in tol, nagsiuwian na yung mga tao ako na maghahatid kay Rhia Ahh sige. ingatan mo ha Siyempre naman sige una na kami hap rthday ulit! Ingat, salamat ulit

Kinarga na niya si Rhia. Kung kanina pakiramdam ko sinampal ako ng di sinasadya n gayon naman, pakiramdam ko binugbog ako ng walang kalaban-laban. Ang sakit. Amp naman. Di ko na napigilan eh, bumigay na, nahulog na ako sa bestfriend ko. Alam ko namang mali. Maling-mali, pero eto na to eh. Di ko naman to ginusto kung pwede lang kontorolin edi sana sinabi kong NO. Pero wala talaga ehang maihirap pa dito , di ko mailabas, di ko maipakita, kelangang sikreto, kasi pag nalaman to nila, s iguradong iisipin nilang masama ako. Sa kadami-daming babaeng nagpapacute sa aki n, bakit wala akong napili? Bakit si Rhia pa? si rhia na bestfriend ko. Ang hira p nitong sitwasyon ko. Di naman ako pwede umiwas, kasi pag ginawa ko yun, magtat aka silang lahat, baka mapansin pa nila. Pero pag di ako umiwas magiging masokis ta naman ako. Sinasaktan ko lang yung sarili ko, nasasaktan nila ako ng di nila alam, di ko naman sila masisisi, kasi wala naman silang alam sa tunay kong narar amdaman. Bahala na magpapanggap na lang ako na parang walang nararamdaman, manhid na kung manhid. Sayang naman yung gift ko kay Rhia niresearch ko pa naman, 1 buw an ko din pinag-isipan kung anong magandang model ng dslr camera, amp! minalas n a naman ako. Naunahan ako ni Franco eh. Tssss, di siguro meant to be. Ewan, pina gkakait nga talaga ako ni tadhana ng happiness. OMG! Thanks Franco! Thank you so oooooooo much! Kung ako kaya ang naunang magbigay ng gift ano kaya sasabihin ni R hia? Ganon din kaya yung reaction niya? Ganon din kaya siya kasaya? Haaaay. Malas. Isang linggo na ang nagdaan simula nong sinabi ni best na mahal na niya si Fran co, isang linggo na rin ako umiiwas kela Rhia hindi naman ata nila napapansin kas i di an lang sila tumatawag o nagmemessage man lang. Ok na sana na masaya silang dalawa magkasama kaso.. yung masakit dun, eh parang kinalimutan nila ako. Latel y, si Jamie na yung dikit ng dikit sakin ewan ko nga kung bakit bumait yun. Di nam an siya nakakatulong sa pasan ko, pero at least siya, nakikinig. You would never expect someone like her to help me in this situation. Siya na ata yung huling t aong pwede makatulong sa akin pero.. tingnan mo, mali ako. Napapadalas na yung pa gtambay ko sa bar alam din ni Jamie yan Since Saturday ngayon sinamahan niya ako Lex ahan-dahan lang sa pag inom, di kita kaya buhatin tandaan mo yan. Opo maam, cheers C rs. Nakakailang bote na ako, si Jamie isa pa lang. Weak. Di pa din niya nauubos. Akala mo astig eh! di naman pala. Kahit kelan, talunan talaga ako eh. Ha? Lahat ng ni liligawan ko binabasted ako, eh ang gwapo ko naman, diba Jamie? diba gwapo ako? Oo . Kitams

Pero bakit ganon? Siguro kasi Ngayon naman di pa ako nababasted, pero siguradong dun in papunta yun, wrong girl eh, bestfriend ko Lex tama na.. Alam mo ang sakit eh, kahi ganito ako? mapagbiro at lahat na, pero sa likod ng mukhang to, isang talunan s a pag-ibig. Ang drama na no? Masochist to eh alam kong masakit na pero hinahayaan k o lang basta bat nakikita kong masaya yung bestfriend ko, ayos lang! Pero bakit ganon ? Ako na nga yung nagsasakripisyo pero, parang wala pa rin, parang hindi nila na kikita. ano? kulang pa ba? kulang pa ba?! Ako na yung nagparaya pero sa huli ako pa rin yung talo Lintek na buhay naman oh! Ilabas mo lang Alex nakikinig lang ako.. Bu ka pa nakikinig, salamat sa pagtiyatiyaga ah sana ikaw na lang si Rhia Wala yun Sana kaw na lang yung minahal ko. Rhia? tapos hinalikan ko siya. Jamies POV I cant believe I let this guy kiss me siguro dahil naawa ako sa kanya. Si no ba naman ang hindi? Tssss. Who would ever think that the Alex who always fool around and make himself look like a clown to make everyone laugh is also the Al ex who pities himself and declares himself a LOSER. Pretty ironic. Naiintindihan ko naman yung sitwasyon niya eh.. Ive been there before, but mine is better, kas i high school pa ako non. Naaawa lang talaga ako sa kanya, feeling ko nakikita ko yung saril ko sa kanya 2 years ago. Rhia is really lucky, I mean so much luckie r than she thinks she is. Maswerte siya dahil si Alex ang naging bestfriend niya isang Alex ang naging bestfriend niya. Di ko rin naman masisisi si Rhia kasi wal a siyang alam sa totoong nararamdaman ni Alex, ang sa akin lang, sana siya yung nasa posisyon ko ngayon siya dapat yung nakikinig kay Alex, kasi sila yung magbes tfriends Nung, nag-aadjust naman siya, si Alex naman yung parati nyang katuwang a h, pero bakit ngayon, parang iniwan niya si Alex sa ere? Shes super lucky. Pinagaagawan siya ng dalawang hunky hunkies as in Franco and Alex. I hope she realizes it before its too late, before Alex gives up. I want to see Rhia and tell her h ow lucky she is. I dont intend to tell everything to her, but I want to make her r ealize what she needs to do. Rhia Hey Jamie! I missed you! Have you seen Alex?

Mabuti at hinanap niya si Alex and how come she wont miss me eh halos di na sila mapaghiwalay ni Franco. Tssss. Si Alex? Wala siya ngayon eh. oo nga, wala siya di ko pa nakikita eh. Ahhh, alam mo ba kung nasan siya? Why dont you text him or call him or. visit him? Right sige, after class, punta ako sa kanila want to come? Never min know ikaw lang ang gusto niyang makita sa ngayon.. Rhia, may sasabihin ako Sure.. wha t is it? Alex needs you now magbestfriends kayo diba? show him that you treat him t hat way too, parang masyado kasing unfair eh make him realiz hes special to you act like youre a true friend asap, kumilos ka na bago mawala yung kaibigan mo Ha? I dont understand Think Rhia.

Rhias POV Weird. Whats happening? Masyado na ata akong clueless. Jamie talks like shes mad at me that was the other side of her, that wasnt sweet, that was scary. Na pansin ko nga na medyo di ko na nakikita si best after our birthday, Im trying to text Alex call pero kahit isa walang sagot. May nagawa ba ako sa kanya? The last thing I could remember is I got drunk in our party. yun lang. I mean it, siguro un fair ako kasi di ko mahigitan yung nagawa ni Alex sa akin, I admit. Ive been too insensitive na pati si best, nakalimutan ko. But this doesnt do anything with Fran co I wasnt with him the whole time medyo na busy din ako sa mga ginagawa kung dress es Puntahan ko na lang si Alex Best are you there? I knocked at his rooms door. Wala i Alex dito, wala. Pfft. Pasok na ako ah Ay hindi, lumabas ka, lumabas Best naman e umped into his bed and hes under his black comforter. His room is so gloomy What? How are you?! I missed you bat di mo ba sinasagot yung mga texts ko? Lowbat ako eh Baki Nawala ba yung charger mo para di ka makapagcharge for a week? Tsss. Ano ng kailan gan mo? Eto naman, binibisita lang kita, akala ko kasi ano ng nangyari sayo

Ahhh. K. Ano na nga bang nangyayari sayo. you smell like you dont enter the comfort r om Nagseself-meditate kasi ako, its good for the heart daw eh Sinong niloloko mo? Bak it? May sakit ka ba sa puso? Oo! Ha?! You mean youre dying?! siguro eto na yung ibig abihin ni Jamie. NO! OA, tigil mo nga muna yan sumasakit puso ko sa ginagawa mo eh Wh y?! What am I doing? Tanga, ayan oh, pinapatungan mo yung katawan ko. nahihirapan a kong huminga. Sus! Yung lang pala eh. Goodness. Akala ko kung ano na. Bigla siyang lumabas sa comforter niya tapos hinug niya ako I missed you best! Ang higpit ng yak ap niya grabeeeeeee. Ikaw ang OA. Oo na OA na kung OA, pero mas OA ka pa rin. I misse d you too. oo, namiss ko nga siya sobra Kitams! Che, hands off na nga, ang bantot mo a! Ew! Paliguan mo ako Ano ka aso? at ako ang amo mo? Pwede.. No way!

Rhias POV I was about to open the door but I saw Franco kissing a girl. Ouch. Hind i na lang ako tumuloy. Baka masira ko pa moment nila! Umalis na lang ako I just w alked I was crying while walking. I dont know why Im acting like this. I think I wa s hurt. I was hurt by that act I know I have no reason to cry or to react like th is. but I dont know! Masakit. Nasasaktan ako. Dj vu? I feel like Ive been on this sam e situation before. But the pain is much intense right now. I thought Id be happy with Franco, with my hero. worst I expected him to feel the same. I thought he lov es me too Ive become stupid I went weak. I cant believe I did unacceptable. Masyado a ong nadala sa lahat ng pinagsasabi at pinag-gagawa niya. Ive been fooled I guess. It really hurts. But I have no right to act like this hindi naman kami ah Maybe t hats how much Ive fallen for that hero. Little did I know. heroes wont be there to c atch you all the time. They might save your life at times but they cant be there t o save you when youd totally fell. Did I do something wron Thats exactly how I fee l right now. I feel like my hero betrayed me he disappointed me. He isnt here to c atch me or at least to wipe these tears or heal this wounded heart? Nakarating na ako sa school pero hindi pa rin ako tumitigil sa pghagulhol. Best?! Best! bat ka um iiyak?! Huy! may umaway ba sayo? Best! Whats wrong? Best Ive fallen for the wrong it hurts so much.. I thought hed catch me but he didnt

Alexs POV Best Ive fallen for the wrong guy. and it hurts so much.. I thought hed cat h me but he didnt sino si He?

I saw Franco kissing a girl Franco FRANCO?! HA?! grabe, tinamaan ata si best grabe ku g makaiyak halatang nasaktan nga. Unbelievable right? sobra, eh sa pagkakaalam ko, i kaw lang yung mahal nun. halos mabaliw nga yun sayo eh O. di muna ako masyado magsasa lita. Well, guess what?!.... nagsmile siya tapos umiyak bigla, ang lakas! parang ba ta. he did! baka naman hindi naman si Franco yung nakita niya It hurts best akala ko masaya na eh sobrang saya pero mali! Best. ok lang yan Its NOT OK! lagot napating sa amin ung mga tao Best Look, minsan lang ako nakakafeel ng ganong saya. I thought i t would last. I thought Id be happy forever. but Im wrong again. I thought he feels t e same way I do mahal na nga talaga ni Rhia si Franco. kung makapagsalita siya par ang di siya nagkaamnesia. I expected him to do the same. but I failed. Thats the wors part. umasa ako pero mali. mali na naman! Best. di naman ako makapagsalita kasi para i niya akong inuunahan. 20 minutes na kami dito. naubos na lang ang tao sa campus si Rhia di pa rin nauubusan ng luha. After 30 minutes umiiyak pa rin. pero wala n g sinasabi nakasandal pa rin siya sa shoulders ko basang-basa na nga yung panyo ni ya eh pati damit ko nadamay na. Did I do something wrong?! nagulat ako dun ahbiglaan eh. Rhia! ayan na si superman. Ok ka lang? nalilito ata siya tinitingnan niya din ako eh.. Obvious bang hindi! Stay away from me! Look Rhia. Im sorry, nastuck kasi ako kay .. Stop your excuses! Umalis ka nga dito! Aliiiiiiis! Grabe. galit na galit si best. ngayon ko lang siya nakitang ganito kagalit since nung nagkaamnesia siya. Rhia! Im sorry! Im sorry! Ayun na tumayo na si best! naku baka ano ng gawin nito! Stop it! Stay away from me. tinulak niya si Franco.. si Franco naman speechless. Sinenyasa n ko na lang si Franco na umalis na pati tumawag na lang sa akin Umiyak lalo si R hia.. tumakbo papunta sa akin tapos umiyak na parang bata na nahiwalay sa nanay niya ng isang taon.

Naaawa ako kay best pero di ko pa masisisi si Franco ngayon kasi hindi ko pa nama n naririnig yung side niya kahit pa sabihin nating.. karibal ko siya ng di niya a lam hindi pa ako nagtatanim ng sama ng loob sa kanya Pero sa nangyari ngayon.. paki ramdam ko may laban ako sa kanya. kung ako ang minahal ni best di ko siya paiiyakin . Tsss. Lintek, eto na naman ako. Kalimutan na lang natin yung sinabi ko Hinatid ko na lang si Rhia pauwinakatulog na siya siguro sumakit yung mata. From: Franco To l. punta ako sa bahay niyo ah usap tayo. pwede ba? u.

Hmmm, kung guilty nga si Franco sa nagawa niya siguro di na siya maglalakas-loob kausapin ako, kasi alam niyang, magagalit ako dahil sinaktan at pinaiyak niya yu ng bestfriend ko. Ibig sabihin siguro nga hindi siya guilty. Huy! lalayas ka ba?! bat may bag kang dala? ano bang nangyari? ang mukha ni Franco parang binagsakan ng mundo. Isa-isa lang Sige bat may dala-dala kang bag? bag na parang aalis siya papun g Universal studios Pwede bang dito muna ako matulog? Sige ba pero bakit? May bwisita kasi kami Ha? ganon ba talaga kabwiset ang bisita niyo? Sobra pa sa bwiset. Sino b ? SI NIKA! sino yan? Eh? di ko naman yan kilala eh.. sino ba yan? Yung kababata kong apon. Tol, mukha syang si chuckie doll Kaya naman pala bwiset na bwiset ka eh Hindi l ng yan. Obsessed ata sa akin yun eh. mas malala pa siya sa mga nanlalandi sa akin sa school. Ayos! Maganda ba yan. Chuckie doll nga diba?! Oo nga pala.

Kinwento ni Franco sa akin. pinaliwanag niya na din Si Nika pala yung babaeng nasa coffee shop na nakahalikan niya Hindi niya naman pala ginusto eh biglaan na lang daw kinuha daw bigla yung cellphone niya tapos yun na hayop din yung babaeng yun a h! Childhood friend din pala siya ni Franco pati kaya daw malimit lang pumupunta n g Japan si Franco dahil dun Ngayon naiintindihan ko na namisinterpret lang pala ni best pati magaling lang talaga siya tumiming at sa lahat ng pwede niyang makita yun pa. Maling akala. Ang mahirap ngayon. eh yung ipaintindi kay Rhia yung katoto hanan. Stubborn yun eh kung ano yung pinapaniwalaan niya yun na talaga yun mahirap baguhin yung pag-iisip niya. Franco namisinterpret ni Rhia yung nakita niya akala niya niloko mo siya well, oo, kung umasta siya parang kayo eh Naiintindihan ko yun A lex kaya nga ako andito magpapatulong sana ako dude Sige pero wag ka masyadong magmad li kasi medyo mukhang matatagalan to eh. kilala mo naman si Rhia diba.. Oo, basta a ng importante malaman niya yung totoo Tama nga yung hinala ko hindi nga guilty si F ranco. Stop cryin best Sana hindi na lang siya yung minahal ko no? Wala eh wala ka gagawa, minahal mo na ok lang yan best time will heal. Sana pala best iba na lang Sa ikaw na lang. Di mo naman siguro ako sasaktan no? Oo, hindi kita sasaktan. Hindi ko n aman talaga sasaktan si best eh. Hindi ko kaya. Lintek na panaginip. Ano na nama n ang ipinapahiwatig nun? Na iparamdam ko na kay Rhia yung totoo kong nararamdam an? Pwede pero pano si Franco? Hmmm, nasaktan na niya si Rhia.. kahit sabihin pa n ating.. di niya intention na gawin yun Kailangan ko na ba talagang ipakita yung t unay kong nararamdaman? Siguro. Ay ewan!

Nikas POV Here he goes again.. hes back in his stubborn ego he acts like I almost c aused him to death. Well in fact, I didnt. Hes such a meanie. Isnt he happy? Im here to visit him cause I missed him. Didnt he miss me? I dont think so. He seems so m ad at me. It sort of hurts. When I kissed him, he almost slap my face. He was so bitter. Didnt he like it? Though he did not slap me, based on how he reacted, I feel like its more than a slap. Why is he like this? He wasnt one when he was in Japan few months ago in fact, he have been good to me, I will never forget how he act like he really cared when I acted I collapsed. Aha I just acted. I just want to see if he really cares or not. I thought he wouldnt but he did. And I was so happy. I was just shocked when I knew he came back here in the Philippines he did nt even told me he will. He just disappeared like a snap. Was that girl hes talkin g with SHE? She is lucky. And shes also pretty. But.. no she does not deserve my pup py love, she made him cry, she hurt Frankie I wont let that happen again. I wont le t her in to our love story. What did Frank see in her that I dont possess? Does h is mom know about her? Im sure her mom wont like that girl. All this years my mom a nd Franks mom keep on saying that we should be togther when we grow up. We should get married in the right time. So theres no way that girl would be Franks. I will do anything to win Franks love. And I believe that girl dont have the guts. Frank has been my dream man since then Ive waited for years and I wont let someone grab h im from my tight grip. Not even SHE. Ill be back. Shell see. Francos POV Franco honey Nika went back to Japan hours ago.. Ahhh. YES!

Did you send her to the airport? No mom di ko nga alam na umalis na pala siya di niya sinabi eh.. sayang naman! di ko siya nahatid! Ahhh she just stayed here for 2 days were you able to bond? Nope.. Im busy with school. Poor Nika she came to see you M mp. Mas kawawa naman ako sa ginawa niya. Mabuti naman at naisip niyang umuwi na k asi kahit maghintay pa siya hinding hindi ko siya ieentertain. Pati.. mapapadali na yung diskarte ko, wala ng sagabal. Text ko kaya ang dudes.. baka may update n a, baka nakausap na nila si Rhia. To: Kyri, Joan Dudes! Good news! Umuwi na si C huckie doll. Bad news di pa rin ako kinakausap ni Rhia ng maayos. Hmm, nakausap n iyo na ba siya? Naniwala ba? Galit pa rin ba? Update niyo ko ah. Salamat! see her face and rip it off. For now.. di pa namin nakakausap si dude eh bukas si guro. Magkasama kasi sila ni Alex kanina mukhang sobrang saya and it looks nice se eing her smile at least di na siya nakasimangot. Text ka na lang namin ni Kyri pa g may update! Dont worry superman, well help you rescue your superwoman! ws magkasama kasi sila kanina why dont you give Alex a call? Ill text you kung may u pdate. Halos magkapareho nga sila ng reply. Masaya kasi wala na si Chuckie doll, wala pa daw update at magkasama si Rhia at Alex. Tama, tatatawagan ko na lang s i Alex. Siguro siya may balita na! Hello? Tol! kamusta? ang ingay naman maingay yung palibot ni Alex. nasa bar ata to eh. Ok lang. May update ba? nakausap mo na ba si R hia? Anong sabi niya? Franco, di kita masyado marinig. Usap na lang tayo bukas! Sige

Bago niya binabanarinig ko yung boses ni Rhia tumatawa.. parang ang saya-saya niya Thursday na 2 days after the incident. Pero wala pa ring nagbabago eh masungit pa rin si Rhia sa akin. Sabi naman ng dudes di daw sila makatiyempo kasi parating ka sama ni Rhia si Alex. Si Alex naman wala pang sinasabi. Napapansin ko nga napapad alas na yung pagsasama nilang magbestfriend. Nasabi na kaya ni Alex? Di ko rin s iya makontak eh pati di niya sinasagot yung mga texts ko. Imposible namang wala s iyang load o nawala yung phone niya. Ano na kayang nangyayari? Oo, nakikita kong masaya si Rhia ngayon.. kahit na wala ako. Siguro dahil si Alex yung kasama niya . Hahayaan ko na lang ba na ganito na lang yung mangyari? Bahala ng hindi na ako pinapansin ni Rhia? as long as masaya siya ok na lang? I love you BEST- Alex An thony De Leon! Thanks for making my day superb! Masaya na nga siya. Status niya yan. Pati, pagtingin ko sa profile picture niya magkasama silang dalawa ni Alex k umakain ng kwek-kwek. Amp. Bat ba nasasaktan ako? Selos. Selos siguro. Pero, magb estfriends lang naman sila diba. Pero, parang may something talaga eh. Friday na . Inannounce ni prof na postponed yung class project, yung tungkol sa thrill rid es. Masaya lahat ng binalita niya yun, pero matutuloy pa rin, next sem, yun eh ku ng kami-kami pa rin ang magkaklase. Pero kahit postponed. Tuloy pa rin daw yung island hopping. Gusto kasi daw nila magrelax. Saturday, Island Hopping Alex pwede ko ba makausap si Rhia mamaya? Ha???? Ah sige, sasabihan ko siya. Salamat. Una muna sa bus baka kasi wala ng upuan Sige. Pag-akyat ko sa bus magkatabi sila ni Rhia. Wal ng ibang bakanteng upuan bukod sa tabi nila. Pero may distansya pa rin kasi may isle eh. Di ko na lang pinansin yung nakikita ko. Medyo malayo din yung byahe na gtatatlong oras na pero di pa rin kami dumadating. Di rin ako nakatulog sa byahe . Di ko maiwasang tingnan sila Alex at Rhia. Ang sweet nila. Tawa ng tawa halatan g nagkakaintindihan talaga sila. Ngayon naman nakatulog si Rhia nakasandal sa che st ni Alex tapos yung kamay nakahug din sa katawan ni Alex. Nasasaktan talaga ako eh. Di ko maintindihan kung bakit. Gusto ko na ngang Bumaba at umuwi ng naglala kad. gusto ko lumayo. Kyris POV My heart breaks for what I see. Nakakaawa si Franc o magkatabi kasi kami parati ko siyang nakikita na nakatingin sa magbestfriends- R hia and Alex. I dont even understand whats happening. Alex and Rhia are closer tha n ever. Its no longer the closeness they have before as friends, its sort of nagl evel-up?

Though, the three of us have been friends and I should be happy when I see them happy this time, no. I am not happy with what Im seeing. Inakala na kasi ni Rhia n a niloko lang siya ni Franco. She didnt listen to what Franco has to say or even w hat WE-her dudes have to say. Ewan ko kay Alex. Rhia is stubborn, what she sees is what she believes. And you cant change her mind even if you try to explain. I swear, it hurts seeing superman this way. Its not what you think it is, hindi ko gusto si Franco. Im no traitor. I mean like. heroes dont get weak, heroes dont let others see them tremble. Nafefeel ko kasi yung nararamdaman ni Franco I was there when he planned everything for that date I was there during our high school days. I was there when he tried to get back Rhias love, even though Rhia tries to push him away. I was there to witness how he loves my dude. Poor Franco. Ano ba kasi ng ginagawa ni Alex?! Hinawakan ko yung kamay ni Franco I just want to make him f eel that things will be alright. Superman! Smile! I tried to be happy as hard as I could. Ha? Sabi ko dont be so upset always remember: It will always be alright. whe said that nalungkot siya lalo. Thank Tapos tumulo yung luha niya. Sumandal siya sa shoulders ko. Eff. My heart feels like crying.

Rhias POV Why was he crying? I was just acting. I wasnt sleeping after all. I alwa ys see him glance at us. What the eff? What does he want now?! But theres somethi ng in the way he looks at usmeus..ME. He looks like hes so sorryhes sad, hes miserabl , hes been defeated betrayed? I dont know and I dont care. Im happy now. with my best Alex, he was the one who catch me. He made me feel lighter when that epic hero d itched me unintentionally. Alex also explained to me everything he was sorry for letting Franco hurt me he said.. he knew it was coming, but he did not do somethi ng. I understand Alex he did let Franco make me feel this way because, back then Fr anco makes me so happy happier than ever. Ive heard enough I dont want to talk to hi m cause dont want to be ditched again I feel like Ive been insulted on purpose. Eff. Epic hero! Rhi wake up here we are! Okiez Im so excited! lets go! Tara ingat ah nod ka. Stupid! nasa bus pa kaya tayo Baket? sinabi ko bang sa tubig ka malulunod? sa bi ko ingat baka malunod ka sa sobrang excited

Ahhh, k. His jokes are kinda annoying but its funny it makes me smile. Nagsibabaan na lahat. Nagsettle na lahat sa kani-kanilang mga cottages. And I was getting re ady with my oh so fab outfit. Cant wait to play in the water. Dudes, Jamie and I are in the same room. Ngayon ko lang narealize na namiss ko sila. Hihihi. Hey Dud e hmmm, its as if theyre not happy to be with me in the same room. Hey! I missed you all and I hugged and kissed them. May sasabihin kami Look, if thats about that epic ero..th.. Rhia! Makinig ka muna!

Promise best Buti pa si Alex alwa re for me. I feel sorry for almost neglecting his presence before I feel sorry fo r the times I let myself be happy with the epic hero when in fact.. my best is h ere willing to give me more. I regret everything, everything with that epic hero . Sigurado akong hinding-hindi gagawin ni Alex yung ginawa nila sa akin. Hindi n iya ako iiwan at hindi niya ako sasaktan. I am ready to get wet. Yay! I dont care with what they all have to say about me being stubborn, selfish or whatever! At least I know its not true. I went immediately to that slide Im kinda pissed cause Alex wont come with me Hes afraid of heights. Errr.

It s ays on the outside To: Rhia I was curious I opened it and I realized it was from.. Franco. I love you. goodbye. P.S. I will never forget that kiss in the rain. See me later on the beachside, for the last time. Please? I love you goodbye? Oh really? You did love me? Oh please, stop acting. Lumabas na ako. Alex was there, waiting for me in the restaurant. Sabay kami nagbreakfas t, first time as LOVERS not bestfriends.

Best Ooops. my bad. Hahaha, ok lang. ganyan talaga pag nagsisimula tapos kinurot niy a ako sa cheeks. Ang weird. Parang naiilang ako. Ewan. I still cant get over of w hat happened last night. With Alexs and Francos. All in one night. Ang raming nang yari kagabi. Yung kay Alex biglaan lang naman kasi yun. I dont have a choice that time, I dont know if he will understand if I say no. Nanigurado na lang ako, kaya sinabi kong yes. I cant afford to lose another friend. Hes all I got. I was despe rate. And I myself was shocked when I said Yes bago ko sabihing yes si Franco ang nakita ko. Boom. I let Alex kiss me because I saw Franco. I thought it was Franco , whom I loved but broke my heart. And so I said to myself. Why dont I give it a try? And so I did. Yung kay Franco naman. It was a kiss for a broken heart. Ive b een longing for that kiss, little did I know, I would have it this late. I dont u nderstand why I let him kiss me Alam ko naman that time na di na pwede kasi kami na ni Alex, and Im suppose to be mad at him. When our lips met, iba eh. Ibang-iba sa na feel ko nung kay Alex. Its more of a love, Alexs was more of desperation. I feel guilty. Gusto kong puntahan si Franco mamaya wala naman siyag sinabi kung anong oras. But Ill try to see him. Hes right, the kiss in the rain, I will never forget it too. Rhia! Oh? Ok ka lang? Kanina ka pa ata tulala diyan ah Ha? Oo.. na a ang pagkain ko bumalik ako sa room para kunin yung phone ko pero pagbalik ko tul ala ka pa rin.. Ok ka lang ba? Ha? Oo. Sure? Oo. Tara, lets have a walk in the b t time as LOVERS LOVERS? oo nga pala, kami na. Tsss. Bat ba parang naiilang ako? W hile we were walking, I still cant get rid off the thought that I said yes out of desperation. Hindi rin ako mapakali.. tingin ako ng tingin sa paligid pero, di ko nakikita si Franco. Alex, wait May problema ba? I just need to go somewhere, may hahanapin lang ako.

OK. Tumakbo ako papunta sa pinangyarihan ng KISS IN THE RAIN. Pagdating ko wala si Fr anco, no signs of him. But I still can see the bottles of beer he drunk yesterda y night. I was disappointed. I feel sorry for myself. I sat on the place where h e was sitting yesterday under the rain. I cried. And I noticed something. I will always love you. Superwoman. Thanks for everything. Bye. It was written in the sa nd. He was here a while ago.

CHAPTER 17 Paalam

Francos POV Last na to. Magsisign out na ako. Wala eh, di siya pumunta. 3 AM nagis ing ako sa kwarto ni Rhia, nakikita ko siya natutulog sa sofa. Kaya umalis na ak o at nilipat ko siya sa higaan niya. May iniwan akong note. Tapos lumabas na aga d ako. Dun mismo sa lugar na pinangyarihan ng KISS IN THE RAIN. Hinintay ko siya , 7 hours. Pero wala talaga. Sabi nila, loving is letting go, kung mahal mo daw yung isang tao, pakakawalan mo siya dahil dun siya masaya, at yun yung gagawin k o. Hindi naman ako masochist katulad ni Edward ng twilight saga, kaya hahayaan k o na si Rhia, kay Alex na boyfriend na niya. Ganon talaga ang buhay. Minsan nanan alo, minsan naman talo. Pero yung sakin puro talo. Amp. Pero, ok na lang at least pakiramdam ko naman nanalo na ako kasi masaya na yung babaeng pinakamamahal ko, pati bonus na rin yung happy moments namin. Siguro ngayon masasabi kong life is u nfair, pero alam ko may dahilan yun. Ginawa ko na ang lahat. Sabi nga sa isang ka nta, I did my best, but I guess my best wasnt good enough. Ginawa ko na lahat, nagm akaawa, nagsakripisyo, nagpakasuper, nagpakahero, pero wala. Wala talaga. Ibig s abihin, itigil ko na. Kaya ito, gagawin ko na. Sana maging masaya si Rhia. Sana maging masaya sila ni Alex. Haaaay, uuwi na naman akong bigo. Sige, hanggang dit o na lang ako. Salamat sa pagsubaybay sa nabigong adventure ni superman. Pasensy a ah di nagtagumpay. Amp. Its batmans turn. PAALAM!

CHAPTER 18 vanished

Alexs POV BATMANs POV Dude! pumunta ako sa cottage ni Franco. Franco? mukhang wala na siya ah. Umalis na ata si Franco eh. Lintek! Akala niya siguro totoo na KAMI na ni Rhia. Akala niyo din siguro na ganon ano?

HINDI. Joke lang yun. Sinabayan ko na lang si Rhia. Oo, sinagot niya ako, pero binawi k o naman kaagad eh, kasi pinagtitripan ko lang si best. HAHAHA! Pero sinabi niyan g, kunwari totohanin. Gusto niya daw kasi makaganti kay Franco, kahit alam niyan g di naman talaga girlfriend ni Franco si Nika, loka-loka kasi si best, ewan ko kung anong gusto niyang mangyari. Basta yung sinabi niya sa akin gusto niya pags elosin si Franco. Tatanggi na sana ako, pero lumuhod siya sa akin, pati sabi niy a babalik siya ng Japan pag di ako pumayag. Kaya yun, wala akong choice eh. Pero kahit yung yung intention ni best, halata namang, mahal na mahal niya pa si sup erman niya. Kaya niya nga to ginagawa para sabi niya mas patunayan pa daw ni Franco kung gaano niya kamahal si Rhia. Asar! Kung pwede ko nga lang ibagok yung ulo n i Rhia sa mg malalaking bato sa beach, ginawa ko na para bumalik yung memory niya at malaman niya kung gaano siya kamahal ni superman. Lintek! Matigas yung ulo e h. Halos sumuko na rin ako sa katigasan ni Rhia. Kaso naawa ako, naalala kong na g-away sila ng dudes niya. ibig sabihin pag sumuko ako sa kanya wala na siayng ka ibigan. Ayoko naman mafeel niya yun. Feeling ko rin, habang kunwaring nililigawa n ko siya, kaya niya sinabing yes kasi ako na lang yung natitira sa kanya. Nabasa ko yung iniisip niya. Para san bat naging childhood/bestfriend ko siya kung di k o pa siya nakakabisado. Dudes! What?! galit ata sa akin eh, pati siguro sila iniisip na trinaydor ko si Franco. Amp! Nakita niyo ba si Franco? The last time we saw him was this morning You mean sooooooooo early in the morning, like 4 am in the mornin g. Ha?! Yup. Saan? Beachside, he was like so depressed, he looks soo depressed. B o yung bottles of beer and I got 15 We asked him kung anong ginagawa niya don early i n the morning with those plenty of drinks. Anong sinabi niya? He said, he was waitin g for someone Someone?

Yup, and then we asked again, why so early? He said I will wait until forever. Yup, h s answer was so random but its so deep. Ngayong umaga nakita niyo ba siya? Wala nga s abi! ang sungit naman. Why are you looking for him anyway? Basta, mamaya ko na ipapa liwanag, hahanapin ko muna siya. Ok, go. Sigurado akong si Rhia yung hinihintay ni Franco, pati dun ata yung punta ni Rhia nung nagpaalam siya sa akin kanina. Nagabot kaya sila? Ayan na si best. Papunta sa akin. Umiiyak? Umiiyak. Hes gone Sino? Fr nco. Ayan! Karma mo na yan. Asar. Diyan ka lang. Where are you going? Somewhere bast stay there! Tumakbo na ako palabas ng resort, alam kong di pa nakakalayo si Franc o.

Akala ko ba matalino ka dapat kanina mo pa yan naiisip eh. Ayan, yan yung nangya yari pag masyado kang pessimistic, nakakalimutan mong tingnan ang brighter side. Eeew, ang baduy!

OMG! I cant wait to get back to school. OMG ka jan! OA! Bahala na ang requirements na yan, kahit dagdagan pa nila, basta makita ko lang si superman! Weh di nga? kitams? mukhang nababaliw na ata eh. Sure diba bukas na tayo uuwi? Hindi, next year pa next year. Mamaya ka na mang-asar ok? mamaya na pag nakita ko na si Franco. ahhh, k. Why d nt we go home now? Sira ka ba? Of course not. obviously Im a human being Im breathi I have Two eyes, the left and the right? Tsss. Mahirap maghanap ng masasakyan best, i di tayo sure kung gano kasafe dito sa lugar na to. Helicopter! tatawag ako kay mom my! Ok, pero mag-isa ka di ako sasama, alam mo naman takot ako sa heights diba? pffft , right. So, wala kang choice kelangan talaga natin, hintayin yung bus. FIIIIIIIINNNN NNNEEEEEEEE! Ah, sige wag na lang, dito na lang tayo. errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! CHILL BEST CHILL! NO! Tapos umalis na siya, umiiyak na naman, hahayaan ko na lang muna magdra ma yun. Hobby niya yun eh, yung tingnan yung mukha niyang umiiyak sa mirror, tap os ihuhug niya yung sarili niya. Sigurado akong kinikitil na siya ng panghihinay ang. Karma na niya ata yun eh, masyado kasing madrama, masyadong creative, ayan, sumobra. Siguro gusto niyang gawing teleserye yung buhay niya. Hindi niya naman kailangan gawin yun eh, kasi kahit ngayon pa lang nagmumukhang telesrye na, sob ra pa sa teleserye, parang, adventure series ng mga superhero. Si Rhia naman kas i, di kontento sa kung anong meron siya, hindi ko naman sinasabing mali yun, per o sa nangyari ngayon, meaning, hind maganda kung masyado tayong nagpapakaambisyo so. Ayan tuloy. Nagluluksa na siya. Rhias POV

I waited for him though I know he went ahead. I was hoping he would come and see me. I waited, waited and waited, but hes nowhere to be found. I asked the recept ionist what room hes staying on, good thing she gave it to me. I rushed to his ro om, I knocked. No answers. I peeked through the window, the room was like it was nt occupied or used. It was as if hed never been here. Wala na nga siya, umalis na siya. This is all my fault. Ive been too much of a director, who tried so hard t o control her life and make it much more of an adventure. I knew the truth, but I pretended I didnt. To. to see how much he would fight for our love. Tssss. Cut i t out. Alex is right. Maybe hes just in the city. Im so excited to go home. I dont care even if a bunch of requirements will welcome me when I come back, as long a s the hope of seeing my hero still exists. I opened my facebook, hoping he had l eft a message for me. But GOODBYE? I found nothing except for that. His status. G OODBYE?. Im almost hopeless, until I realized theres a question mark after the wor d goodbye. Meaning, hes not yet sure of saying so. Hes not leaving yet! Yes! May c hance pa akong kausapin siya, may time pa ako magexplain. Wew. Cant wait to see h im. Dude! Rhia! Wake up! Narinig naming aalis na si Franco.. HA?! Where?

NO. whats wrong with him? Dude! Meet CORNICLES WOW! Thanks dudes, youre so amazing! n! CORNICLES is a helicopter. Alexs helicopter, but he dont use it, kaya naman pala ang laki ng NO niya eh. Tssss. Pero, buti na lang! buti na lang talaga! Dudes, Im really sorry sorry sa mga nasabi ko. Whatever. Sorry. Stop the drama dude. Mamaya , habulin muna natin yung superman mo. Yup, before its toooooo late. Bago, ka magluk sa sa kakaiyak. AT! sa sobrang regret. HA?! Alam niyo? Yup, Alex told us everything. cause if we didnt knew, why would we come here helping you? Ano kami STUPID? NO! Of course youre not, in fact your geniuses! Yah right. Unti-unti ng bumabalik yung mga nawala sa akin. Una yung katotohanan na hindi naman talaga ako niloko ni Franco, second the hope to be happy, third; my dudes, my friends isa na lang yung hinihi ntay kung magbalik sa akin.. si superman. My hero. DUDE! Oh? What are you still doing here, andito na tayo sa airport. Go!!!! Habulin mo na si Franco! Thanks dudes! Tumakb o na ako papasok sa airport. isang flight lang ang papuntang Japan today and its le aving in. in 2 MINUTES?! I increased my speed, I ran as fast as I could Pagdating ko sa passengers waiting area wala na. Umalis na yung eroplano.

Umalis na si superman, iniwan niya na si superwoman. I felt so weak, I feel like I cant breath anymore, I feel like I can no longer take one more step. I cried. again. But someone called my name. my other name. SUPERWOMAN. Its superman! Franco! I love you. And he kissed me. agkita na kami ni Franco! Errrr! Ah sige. matulog ka ulit believe in your dreams ok. ! so mananaginip ka na lang diyan? Wake up Best. I am awake. Akala ko ba gusto mo ng umuwi to check if your superman is still existing? RIGHT! Tama, thanks! Hindi ka na ba maliligo? Nope lets go! Ok hindi ka pa naman masyadong nangangamoy eh I know. L !!!! I hate it! Akala ko totoo na, akala ko nakita ko na yung missing piece, akal a ko nakita ko na si superman! Pero panaginip lang pala. Ang ganda na sana eh.. its like a scene on those movies. Akala ko maswerte na ako. Pffft. Its just a dr eam, only a dream. Napakaironic nga eh. Before I dont want to fall a sleep cause I dont want to see his face, his ego in my dreams. Binansagan ko pa nga siayng, d reamhunter diba? pero look, ngayon halos ayaw ko ng magising, gusto ko matulog n a lang habang buhay, kung sa panaginip ko lang makakamit ang happily ever after. Stop the drama Rhia. Its not the end yet, hindi pa ako nakakasiguradong wala na nga si Franco.

Pagdating namin sa city, its already dark. Eff. Sunday pa pala. And its 1 am. Il ang oras pa bibilangin ko para makapasok sa school. Wait. Why dont I go to there house? Tama nagbihis ulit ako. But paglabas ko, narealize kong I dont know where su perman lives. Eff again. Malas. Matutulog na nga lang ako. I woke up. I dressed up, umalis na ako ng bahay. And I arrived at school 6:30 in the morning. Wala pa masyadong tao. I cant even see at least one classmate 8:45 pa kasi yung first sub ject namin today. Inagahan ko na para makita ko talaga kung sinu-sino yung dumar ating, apti, kung andito na ba talaga yung hinahanap ko. After 2 hours. Still no signs of him, nagsidatingan na yung mga classmates ko, including my dudes and A lex. Pero wala pa rin ni anino ni Franco. Hmmm, baka hes late. I keep the hope wi thin me, I keep the optimism. Good morning. Good morning Ms. Gonzales. Hows your proj ct? Isa pa lang ang nakapagsubmit ng project. murmur. murmur. murmur. murmur. mur mur. murmur. murmur. murmur. murmur. murmur. Isa? Wow! Sino kaya yun, whoever th at person is, I salute him/her. Sino po? ayan, di nakaya ng consciousness ni Jamie . Mr. Mendoza. Anyone? may magsusubmit ba today? Prof, masyado pang busy ang raming r quirements eh. How come Mr. Mendoza able to submit the project ahead of time? Tumah imik lahat. Tama nga naman, pati pano nagawa ni Franco yun? Amazing. Gosh! Hindi pa nga siya umaalis. Wew! I just cant wait to see him. I wont be with you for so lo ng today, I have to catch up with the seminar I have to attend, so please, make use of the time, to make a research for your project. I dont want to see you runn ing at me at the end of the month to submit your late projects. Deadline is dead line. Goodbye class. Nagresearch na kami. I cant concentrate with what Im doing. Ne xt class na.. its sir Tirsos Boring yung class. I did not like the story. At the end of the class.. pare-pareho lang silang lahat, tanong ng tanong kung natapos na ba yung projects namin, kung kelan ba daw kami magsusubmit kasi daw ayaw nila ng late, and so on and so forth. And! Also in this subject, si Franco pa lang y ung nakakapagsubmit. Wow again. But where is he? Goodbye class Nagpaalam na siya. o r NOT. Wait, Alam niyo na ba ang balita? Ha? ako yung una nagreact. Like everyone, w e were curious. Its as if you dont know anything yet. So, di bale na lang, goodbye .

Obviously we dont so dapat sinabi niya Di ako mapakali, I cant go on with the whole day kung di ko nalalaman yung balita. May something eh. And its weird, si Franco yung bukambibig ng mga professors ngayon. WHY?! Hinabol ko si sir Tirso. Sir.. Yes? Ms. Lao? Sir, I was just curious ano po yung balita? You dont know too? I though you the first one to know. ha????? ???? Mr. Mendoza is gone ???? Look, he complied al rements, and since you already took the final exams for the first semester, the school allowed him to finish everything in one day, may emergency daw kasi sa fa mily business nila, and he have to go to Japan ASAP. . Ms. Lao? Ill go ahead. An ink hes coming back.

CHAPTER 19 2012

Rhias POV Is it the end of the world? Cause if its not then please kill me now. No w I sure am hopeless. Hes really gone, theres no way Im gonna be able to tell him e verything I want to. Theres no way I can tell him how much I love him, theres no w ay to show him I care and how much I care for this adventure to go on. I failed. I wasnt able to do my part as her superwoman, I wasnt able to fight for our love. Kill me now. I want to die now. Whats the reason for living? Hes gone and hes not coming back. I thought Id be happy again as soon as I see him and tell him everyt hing I want to say. Better yet, I want to have another accident and have amnesia for the second time. This regret is killing me. There are tons of I should haves a nd If onlys in my mind. Im the worst idiot ever alive, whats the point of living now? I cant put the blame on him, cause basically this is all my fault. If only I gav e him the chance to talk and explain everything, then this wouldnt happen. I cant say he doesnt love me because he left me, I know he left because he thought Im alr eady happy without him. He let me go. And Ive been too selfish to let him do so. Hindi na ako pumasok. Hindi ko kaya everything I see in this school reminds me of my hero. Pumunta na lang muna ako sa simbahan. Ill talk to God, kailangan kong m aliwanagan. I know things happen for a reason. Ate, bili na kayo ng sampaguita Ate m aganda! diba. ikaw yung kasama ni Kuya na mabait? Everywhere I go, I see Franco. T his child hes. well, heres the story. *flashback* Kuya, bili na kayo ng sampaguita.. gkano ba? 20 po Akin na yan.. eto po.. the child handed Franco one. Lahat. PO?! anded the child a thousand. SALAMAT PO! Walang anuman sige na umuwi ka na sainyo teka eto dagdag mo na, kumain ka ha! and he gave the child a hundred for a snack? wow. Ku ya, maraming-maraming salamat, huwag po kayong mag-alala, isasali ko kayo sa das al ko hihilingin ko na sana kayo na ang magkatuluyan ni Ate na maganda. he was ref erring to me. Cool child. *end of flashback* Ate maganda, ok ka lang?

Ah, oo. San na po si kuya na mabait? Ah eh wala na siya eh. Ha? naku! nakakalungko po yan.. pasensya po mukhang nalungkot ata kayo sa tanong ko, sorry ate. Ok lang ak in na yang sampaguita mo umuwi ka na ha ingat. Salamat po pati, wag na kayong malungk ot nawawala ganda niyo eh wag po kayong mag-alala, ipagdadasal ko na sana bumalik si Kuya na mabait. Bye po! Hindi ko maiwasang mapaluha sa sinabi ng bata he maybe young, he may not know our story but he cares so much. Nakakatouch. Sana nga bum alik pa siya yun din yung ipagdadasal ko eh. Bahala na madelay, kahit gaano katag al, maghihintay ako. Nagdasal na ako hindi ko pa rin maiwasang maiyak. I know its pretty embarrassing, hindi lang kasi ako yung tao sa simbahan, pinagtitinginan na ata ako eh. Kasi I was crying like yah its the end of the world. UNFORTUNATELY, wala akong dalang panyo naiwan ko sa bag ko all I have right now is my wallet and phone. Malas but someone, tapped me and handed me a blue handkerchief. Hindi ko pa ako lumilingon, I was crossing my fingers and was hoping that it could be Franc o. And when I look to see the face. its. Miss, ok ka lang? its not him but it looks like my superman. its like his long lost twin, or a brother. I dont know. Hindi eh .. Would you mind If I ask why? To cut the story short, naiwan ako sa adventure ng s uperhero ko kasi tinaboy ko siya. Wow, ang lalim pero naiintindihan ko. Ang tanga ko no? Hmmm, to tell you honestly oo pero wag kang mag-alala, malay natin bumalik yun ma y superhero bang hahayaan na lang na mapahamak yung babaeng pinakamamahal niya? eh kahit sino na nga yung nirerescue niya eh imposible namang hayaan niya lang dib a.. May point kasalamat ah. Sige miss, una na ako hmmm, ipagdadasal na lang kita. san bumalik na yung superhero ng buhay mo. Uie, yung panyo mo.. Sayo na yan. Bye! Who is he? Right What was his name? Idiot. Bat di ko tinanong. He did help me feel quite comfortable. Medyo gumaan yung pakiramdam ko sa sinabi niya. I was hopeful agai n. Wew. Pumunta lang ako sa simbahan para magdasal peroa ng rami ko ng nameet at nagsabing babalik siya.

Hindi ako susuko. Maghihintay ako. Umuwi na ako. And there lies my bag. Siguro A lex dropped it here, pati, he didnt bother to wait for me cause he knew Im in the midst of some dramatic breakdown and Im gonna do my ritual. Cry in front of my mirror and hug myself. Rhia kumain ka na.. balita ko hindi ka daw sa school naglu nch Hindi ako gutom Ate Beth. Sige ka. pano pag bumalik si superman mo? di makikita ang nangangayayat ka na.. Tsss. Busog po talaga ako Sige basta bat wag mong sasabihi hindi kita niremind ah. Tsss. Pati si Ate Beth, alam na niya. Oh well, news trave ls faster than the speed of light. I guess. But Im happy to hear all optimism in them, wala pa akong naririnig na sinisisi ako at pinapalala yung kondisyon ko its as if, nobody wants to bring me down. Wew. 2 days na akong hindi pumapasok sa s chool. I know, Im such a drama queen Pero let me be one for now. Di ko pa kasi ka ya eh. Sobra pa to sa sakit sa katawan. At least naman yun may gamot, eh eto isa lang yung gamot, tapos, nawala pa. ang mahirap pa hindi ko alam kung san hahanapin. Goodness. Why am I so unlucky? Youre always welcome, always remember. Boku ga iru B oku ga kimi wo mamotte ageru.. Eien ????? I will protect you Forever AHHH. Dont mak mises that you cant keep Franco. Oo, promise. you heard me Rhia I will protect you. F rever. Forever? Yes and I will love you Forever. there to protect me. Please. Doooont! dreaming. Hindi ko pa sila nakikita kasi Im all covered by my heavy black comforter . I get rid of it as fast as I could and Dudes!!!!! I missed you Im sorry, I know it was all my fault.. Im really really really really really sorry. From the bottom of my heart. Im deeply sorry. APOLOGY ACCEPTED!

Really?! Aw, ayaw mo? sige babawiin na lang namin. No. Gusto ko! Gustong gusto! I jus t cant believe this is happening, I thought were gonna make war already. of course not. Alex told us the whole story And guess what? What?! Youre so stupid. T_T I kn right I know. wag niyo ng istress out alam ko na. Sorry to offend you right there but a na, nakikita mo namang parang nabagsakan na yan ng mundo oh lets not exacerbate the sitch. Thanks Kyri. So whats your plan? Stay here forever and wait till your her come back rushing you to the hospital? Dude are you crazy?! You cant be like this f orever Tama napapabayaan mo na ang studies mo wake up dude! ano ng mangyayari sa mga dreams mo? Tama ulit. And Im sure your hero doesnt want to see you looking like a rot ten veggie when he comes back. Thanks for all the concerns dudes Dont let us down aga in do what is right dont just sleep here forever you may see him in your dreams but you may want to wake up and see if he shows up in reality So. go take a bath lets hav a girls day out! lets go SHOPPING! Thanks! And sure, I wont. by the way wheres es out somewhere. Yup some personal business I guess. Naks, when did he have time to anage his own personal business. Joans POV Kawawa naman yung dude namin. Siguro k ung hindi siya nagkaamnesia. mas malala pa yung reaction niya. FYI, before she us ed to cry and tell us about how she feels sorry for herself, cause everytime she feels like shes at the top of the world because of so much happiness, it just di sappears with a blink of an eye. Heres one her blog posts before well she usually writes when shes depressed.

Happiness a bird I cant catch I find my mind wander When shall this fantasy hatch? For everything seemed to be a happily never after Every search was a wicked flower Bloomed as if its forever, withered for it is momentary Now its raining hard in this dark lonely hour Smiles turned tears, fortune turned misery Why should thing s always end leaving me solitary? I stood deserted, embracing the memories of yes terday Frightened that this agony might be for eternity Freedom from this nightm are will be mine someday Response to this quest will soon rise to shine And I wi ll rejoice, Alas! Happiness is forever mine!

See. Ano na kayang nangyari kung hindi siya nagkaamnesia? Siguro nagsuicide na s iya. I cant ask why all of these things happened cause the answer is pretty obviou s, and that the bottomline is after all, its Rhias fault. So Kyri and I decided to get her somewhere she would enjoy. And that would be, with no doubt, SHOPPING. She loves it so much and shes pretty good at I, shes not Rebecca of th Confessions of a shopaholic, shes the opposite, yes she buys everything she likes but she uses i t, pays for it and make sure it wont cause her too much. Sa kasamaang palad, Kyri and I went on so excited that we forgot to bring Rhia to a new mall, We brought her to this mall where the superhero intimate adventures happen. How dumb of us . Errr. Kyri is pretty good in keeping tracks so she set the mood, she keeps on c hattering about the new trends and new release of high end clothes and stuffs, w hich! enthused Rhia and I myself. Nice work dude. So I guess, the plan is runnin g as smooth as Cleopatras skin. Rhia looks so happy, you can even never tell that shes in the midst of mourning or so. Wew. I hope this continues. Wow, we bought l ike tons of stuffs. Masyado ka naman exagge Kyri. were not halfway throught yet.. Hmm I just want to elongate the shopping time span. You mean not even a quarter of w hat Im suppose to buy.. see? it worked! Adik!, Fine total, its the end of the semeste r and Im sure marami kang savings Yup, Ikaw na ata yung pinakakuripot na babaeng nak ilala ko pag wala sa department store Aha you let yourself starve and let it be sooo oo much full with bunch of clothes.. I know. But correction, I dont let myself star ve.

Look Kyri this red dress is sooooo.. SEDUCTIVE see? sabay kami. Were certified DUDES! ry mo We went to the fitting room, so excited to se if it fits well and perfect to Kyri. but suddenly I noticed.. wait, wheres Rhia? o_O Oh shes right there looking a t someone. someone? Eff. Someone who looks like Francos long lost twin. NOOOOO! Pl an interrupted. Rhia! Oh nowsss, lalapitan niya ata eh almost almost there 3 more ste ps Wew! Thank God. Umalis na yung lalake ng di pa nakakausap ni Rhia. Lord, salam at po! Shes coming back. Eff again, this time, nawala bigla yung bright mood niya . DOOMED! Hey dudes! ok ba? o_O clears throat. Hmm, miss.. Jo is the name, can I as k your number? Funny Jo, try harder.HAHA! Is that how seductive I look with this re d well-draped dress? Kyris not getting it.. I was trying to make Rhia laugh, and I was hoping Kyri would say Hi, my number? 12345678910. Unfortunately, it did not work. fail. Guys. Im tired una na ako No, well go with you. I insist, I know you g the whole thing I dont want to screw things for you.. But Rhi Tsss, sige na anjan n yung driver, Ill be fine enjoy. k. Nauna na nga siya. Argh! Akala ko perfect na yun g plan eh. Sino ba kasi yun? Pati, why on Earth did that creature show up from o ut of the blue? Greatness. He really looks like Franco, well except for the way he dresses. Overall. Di pa nakakamove on si dude. Nagkaamnesi nga siya. Before hm m, to site an example, when that crap-trash-freak-I hope he didnt exist- Jake ditc hed her on purpose, it took Rhia less than 24 hours to contemplate on the humili ation and all, and after which BOOM! tapos! move on kaagad. Its as if nothing hap pened, and she doesnt care no more. She isnt that affected after all, kasi naman d i niya talaga sineryoso yun. parang for the sake na maexperience niya lang sa high school kaya niya sinakyan. And, after all again, hes so not Rhias type. EW. And an other fact, naawa lang din siya kaya niya sinakyan. But I swear again Rhia even t urns off her phone to avoid that effin egos pambibwiset. Sorry for being so affected . Its just that I want to tear that dumbasss internal organs and burn it to hell the moment I see his useless face. Hes face is just so thick, thicker than the th ickest layer of the earth. I hate him to death. I mean. WE. Going back. Poor lit tle girl. Bat di ba asi siya tinatantanan ng heartbreaks. Rhias POV

Im seeing him again. But I sure am not having an illusion that guy looks exactly l ike my hero. Well, except for the way he dresses. Franco wears clothes so much b etter. Effortless I shall say. My hero keeps on leaving marks on the tracks we u sed to go whenever we have some adventure. Why cant he just leave like its as if its a cleanbreak. like what Edward did, though it didnt work that pretty well. I thin k, this things, hmm, well, they arent simple, usual things that do happen everyda y are telling me something. Impossible naman kung walang significance ang lahat n g to. Spectacular idea! I want to go back to the resort, where that kiss happened . Ill ask for a miracle. Ill still be hopeful no matter what. As long as I live to breath I wont stop hoping. Kuya nakita niyo po ba tung lalakeng to? I showed him the clearest and latest picture of Franco. I know what youre thinking. it looks like hes a missing child. LOL. Hmmm, wala po Maam eh. hopeless? NO! Ah sige po.. salamat p . So I think theres no other way that hes coming back here to do what Im exactly doi ng. Meaning. Go back to the exact place where the kiss happened, sit there for a while, reminisce the kiss, and reminisce everything weve had and cry. I did as I stated. I went there. and yup, did everything I said. And I noticed something. whi le doing the. Wow. The words he wrote in the sand are still there. As fresh as I saw it for the first time.

CHAPTER 20 Spiderman

On my right side. are boys sitting comfortably and on my left. girls an d some gays sitting on the floor. Wow. I was so annoyed and pissed. Not even one of them offered one of us a sit.

They are but junkies, n ot and never gents. Eff. Sensya kung nageneral, to the person reading this, I ju st cross my fingers and hope that youre not one of them. A piece of advice, pag m ay nakikita kayong nakatayo na babae tapos kayo nakaupo na super comfy, take the initiative to give your seat to her. ok? GM And after I turned off my phone to avoid all their opposing replies. Guess Im having fun. The performance are awesom e, the performers are like pro. OUCH! Damn!

Like my savior but I cant just dump in everything I remember about my original hero. Pero may spa rk may spark kay spiderman or whatever his name is. Spark lang naman not hearts k atulad kay Superman. So I went home 12 in the midnight in this alien place riding a jeep. Walking few meters to reach the hotel.

Ako nga pala si Francis Mario Mendoza. Pam ilyar pangalan ko no? Kung iniisip niyong nagpapanggap lang ako. Hindi. Oo magkap atid kami ni Franco na superman ni Rhi. Actually kambal kami. Pero lumaki ako sa States di kami sabay lumaki pero close pa rin kami. Hindi naman talaga by chance yung pagtatagpo namin ni Rhi sa totoo, ipinagbilin ni Franco yung superwoman niya sa akin. Kasi daw. alam niyo na ata kung bakit. Naguguluhan ako eh mukhang di ata mat ch yung pinagsasabi ng dalawa sabi ni Franco, galit na galit daw sa kanya si Rhi, sabi naman ni Rhi, iniwan siya ni Franco. Ay ewan! Basta gagampanan ko yung role dito ang maging psychic ni superman Since, alam ni Franco na mahilig akong magspy at lahat lahat na na ginagawa ng mga secret agents pati sakto, kasi summer break namin humingi siya ng pabor sa akin birthday gift ko na daw hanggang bawian siya ng buhay. Naisip ko good deal na yun malaki din ang matitipid ko sa kapatid ko pa g umoo ako mahal yun magdemand eh kaya yun pumayag na ako. Tinanong ko siya kung ha nggang kelan niya gagawin to. pero ang labo ng sagot ni Franco sabi niya lang, hang gang makita ko lang siyang masaya di na ako manggugulo napaka-indefinite,

pano pag masaya na habang buhay si Rhi? Edi, di na siya magpapakita kahit alam ni ya sa sarili niya na mahal na mahal na mahal na mahal na mahal niya tong babaeng to? Oh well, wala na akong magagawa matigas ulo non eh. Tama, para may difference kami sa mga imagination niyo si Francomaporma kung manamit.

I mean, umalis na siya. Err! I hate him why does he need to leave? Di man lang niya sinabi sa akin ngayon lang ngayon na na aalis na siya. Alam ko sinadya niya yun p ara wala na akong magawa, para di ko na siya mapigilan. Hmmm, I just knew Alex f or 7 months kasi nga sa amnesia na yan but I feel like I knew him forever. Siya yu ng naging memory archive ko when I was adjusting and now hes leaving me. Ouch. Per o Ill be strong. This is part of growing up. Anyway, he said hes coming back and h ell visit me.

Oo nga naman, baka ganon nga lang. Francos POV Tsk. Kawawa naman si cookie monster. Alam ko, baduy yung tawag ko sa kanya. Anyway, alam naman talaga namin lahat na aalis yung dalawang machine guns , kaso, ayaw ilang ipaalam kay Rhia, pati, di daw nila aakalain silang dalawa sa bay aalis.

Sana di na maulit yun its just a small matter pero it makes me a paranoid baka kasi mafall si superman sa villain ni superwoman, well never know Gab is suppose to pi ck up when we get back and we were surprised. O_O Hes with some girl some girl? ATE CHESKA?! Kami na!

Minsan may girl na gustong subukin ang compatibility ni la ng kanyang boyfriend. Sabi ng girlfriend sa boyfriend niya, Baby( Ang gara noh? Hindi ba kayo nagtataka kung bakit ganito pa rin ang tawagan sa mga mahal natin kahit may edad na tayo?), para malaman natin kung talagang compatible tayo, dap at ipa-assess natin ang Zodiac signs natin. Ano ba ang Zodiac sign mo?!

Sa kasamaang palad, hindi pala ala ng lalaki kung ano ang Zodiac sign. Kaya para hindi mapahiya, sabi niya sa kanyang nobya: Ikaw muna, ano Zodiac Sign mo? Ah, ako ?! sambit ng babae. Cancer, patuloy pa nya. Kaya sabi nung lalaki, Ah yon ba? Ako n aman GOITER! See?! Its so funny! Marami pa yan eh And my Christmas eve was spent l aughing with God, thanks to the book.

Aaah, kaya naman pala eh. Isukat mo na !

They are one of a kind. Tell me, where would you ever see a group of hunkies, in terested in shopping, plus the fact that theyre not gays, its so cool. Hmmm, alam nga siguro nila ang nangyari, maybe they understand me too. Thank God. Ok ba? Turn left. One more turn wow ha, me ganun? Ok! that was the 5th outfit I tried.

Una naming pinasukan.. Topman. Theyre really amazing, ok yun g tastes nila, it will only take then a minute to choose an outfit and then theyr e off to the fitting room, tapos yun, mga 10 minutes lang kami sa store, and were done, nakabili na sila ng tig tatatlong outfit. Im so loving them, they are grea t shopping partners. After shopping nag food trip kami. sa streets, kwek-kwek dom ination, yay! Malakas din pala sila kumain ng kwek-kwek eh. After eating, hinati d na nila ako sa bahay namin. I really awe them a lot, they made my day lighter. And then I realized my life is a tele-serye, or whatever drama it is, yung nangya ri kanina it was like, meteor garden WITHOUT dao ming su. Pshhh. Wala lang, it j ust came to my mind. 1 month later Its been a month already pero wala pa rin si su perman. Is the adventure that tough to cause him so much delay on his come back? What freaks me out at the moment is he doesnt even text me or call me or e-mail me, theres no sign of him. The previous month, 1st month of the year, was the wor st month ever, di nga talaga good yung start ng year ko. Until when will I suffe r? Minsan lang naman ako nagiging masaya ah. Why do I always have to feel that t he world is against me? For once in my life, pwede bang tantanan muna ako ng mga parasites na yan? The past month, sila Mawee, Paolo at Harvey yung parati kong kasama pati ang dudes, pati sila nagtataka kung san na daw si Franco. Kahit nga yu ng mga pinsan niya eh di na alam kung anong nangyayari sa kanya. I cant be cluele ss forever! I need to act now!!! I need to do something. Dude, birthday na ni Fra nco sa 21 right. So may plano ka na ba? plan? and what should I do anyway, I dont ev en know if hes still existing. Hay nako Rhia, its time to exercise your creativity ! How will I, Im not even inspired. So are you saying na mas gagawin mong miserable y ung relationship niyo by doing nothing si birthday ng boyfriend mo? NO! There you sa id it! THEN DO SOMETHING!

Ok, ok, fine! Tsss. Wala naman akong laban sa kanila eh, kaya ko sinabing ok. Im re ally clueless, I have no idea about the whole surprise thingy as of the moment, like I said, Im not inspired, kadalasan resulta ng pagiging uninspired, failure. After a week, nakapagplano na ako, I did try my best to work out the plan. Plan lang yun, pero nahirapan ako, pffft. Everyone knows already, except for Franco, sinabi na rin ni Ate Cheska na day before his birthday na yung dating niya Nakaus ap ko na rin sila Paolo, Mawee at Harvey, theyre sure to help me sa surprise birt hday party. February 14 Happy Valentines day. Great. What should I be happy for? Marami ng namimiss na important dates si superman at superwoman. Normal pa ba to?

Pwede bang ganon na lang kami ni Franco? pwede bang di ako masak tan sa pagmamahal ko sa kanya? Can love be like this? Can love not hurt me? Why cant it be forever happy? February 19 Hay salamat, today is the day, makakahinga na ako ng mabuti, finally magrereunite ulit si Superman at Superwoman. Napagplan uhan na namin nila Ate Cheska and her angels na sabay naming susunduin si Franco . Honestly, naguguluhan pa ako. If Ill recall the last time we saw each other, it wasnt good, not even acceptable, tapos wala kaming any communication since that, and then. ngayon, susunduin ko siya. Kung ako lang, wala na yun sa akin ang nangy ari, kinalimutan ko na, ewan ko lang kay Franco, sana ganun din siya, pffft, ila ng buwan din kaming di nagkikita no, siguro naman kinalimutan niya na yun NAIA 2, 4:15 pm Ayan na si Franco nakikita ko na.. OMG! Kasama si. Kasama si Nika O_O Paran amatay lahat ng cells sa katawan ko, lahat ng blood nag-evaporate, yung bones ko , naging jelly, yung eyes ko nagpop-out, in short, gumuho yung mundo ko. Nika? n akakalabit yung kamay sa kamay ni Franco. Can someone please explain to me whats going on? Excuse me, hes TAKEN because FYI, Im HIS girlfriend. Oh no. Totoo ba tal aga to? Hi Ate Ches hey boys hi Rhia. WTF?! I cant stand all of this. I have to go! use me. Umexit na ako. Sh*t, sa ginawa niyang yun, parang sinampal na din ako ng mga babaeng galit sa akin, sobra pa ata dun eh. Hello?! Shes holding my boyfriend in the most intimate way in front of me, what was she thinking? Di ba siya maru nong gumalang? That awkward moment. errr! The worst part is. di man lang ako pinig ilan ni Franco, di niya ako hinabol. Ang totoo, umalis ako para itest kung tama ba yung prediction ko akala ko kasi pag ginawa ko yun hahabulin nya ako, that is t he most expected act from him, pero surprisingly, wala. Wala talaga. This is wor st than anything else. Bumaliktad ata yung mundo parang, noon lang, ang saya-saya namin, ang saya-saya ko. Ano na ba kasi ang nangyayari? Every question is killi ng me. Are we over? To: alex_anthony From: rhia_margarette Best. Ang sakit. What should I do know? The heroes adventure is about to end, natalo ata kami ng vill ain eh, kasi wala na kaming coordination, wala ng passion, wala na. That was jus t one mistake, I never thought it will cause me everything, everything that once made me smile. Epic ata tong adventure na to eh. I miss you. I just want you to know, Im not ok, I feel helpless. Take care there. Love lots.

*Kriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing* Rhia! Yes? Tuloy tayo bukas ah. all set na yung surpris mo Ha? Sige bye, see you! *end of call* See you? Pupunta ba ako o hindi? May maihaha ap pa ba ako sa kanila, sa kaniya? I dont have the strength to do so. I cant stand it. Hindi ako masokista, hindi ako tanga, Im no idiot, I wont let myself look stu pid in front of some girl who stole my boyfriend. Not gonna happen. February 20, 5 p.m. Gising! Superwoman! Huuuuuy! Ok, its Ate Cheskas Angels. Im not feeling we on.com Not feeling well pala ah! noooooooooooooooooooooooooo! great! Buhusan ba nama n ako ng isang balde ng cold water. not funny >_< Sorry ha, trabaho lang Anong trabah o? di yun nakakatawa ah Wala na kasi kaming maisip eh, kaninang umaga ka pa namin tinatawagan, di ka naman sumasagot, sabi naman ng maid niyo, tulog ka pa Sobra ka p a sa sleepyhead eh So?!

Good. masunurin naman pala sila eh, umalis sila sa bed k o, sabay naglakad paalis, after 3 steps, lumingon sa akin, no! Is is what Im thin king? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Eff, so binuhat nila ako papunta sa banyo, pagbukas nila sa pinto ng comfort room ko, sinalubong ako ng shower ko na hawak-hawak nila Kyri a t Joan. They did plan this. F*cksh*t. Hindi na talaga ako natutuwa!

No, no, no. in the first place, kayo , KAYO! po yung pumilit sa akin na gawin to. Pero, you chose to do it, so ikaw pa r in yung may responsibilidad sa lahat ng to Second, it would be the dumbest idea if w e let the girlfriend of the celebrant miss her boyfriends birthday. Excuse me? Mamaya ka na magsalita, patapusin mo muna si loves. WTF?! Ano daw? LOVES? ew. And 3rd, k aibigan mo kami, hindi enemy, hindi villain, hindi antagonist, hindi masasamang elemento sa buhay mo, meaning, were doing this for your own good and we DO NOT in tend to make you look stupid. So, may sasabihin ka pa? meronpa. lintek na Harvey, tin kpan yung bunganga ko. errrrrrrrrrrrrr! Wala na akong magagawa. I am forced to s how up and to make myself look stupid. Hindi ako makatakas-takas sa mga guwardya -sibil na to! What are they up to? After 30 minutes, nakarating na kami sa venue. Oh well, not bad, everything went according to my plan. Mabuti naman. Welcome to Francos 17th birthday tang juice! Wow ha, WOW. Wala naman sa plano ko na may pumuw estong usherette sa entrance eh. At kung meron man, definitely it wont be Nika. He y Guys!!!!! Masaya siya ng makita niya sila Harvey. but the moment she saw me. ang taray ng irap niya! argh! Hi Rhia. Actually di naman niya kailangan bumati kung na pipilitan lang siya eh. Please stop me baka pag di ko napigilan, masakal ko na to eh! Mukha na nga siyang aso sa choker na suot niya, baka gusto niya maging askal na lang siya pag napatulan ko siya! HELL-O! Dude. chill bulong naman ni Kyri. Nik, e with me if its ok with you? Sure as if. Ang plastic niya ah. Talo niya pa ang kapla stican ng lock and lock. Naseseal lahat ng tinatago niyang amoy. iniiiiiiiiis! Paolos POV Nasa plano na din naman yung exit ni Nika. Alam naming magkakainitan t alaga dito, pag pinagsama tong dalawa. Kahit di sabihin ni Rhia, masyadong obviou s. Yung mata niya, nang-iinit na. Kung kami lang, di naman talaga namin pipiliti n si Rhia eh, kaso utos ni Ate Cheska eh, kailangan daw talaga andito si Rhia. Pa ti kami, nag-aaalala kung anong mangyayari sa muling pagkikita ng mga superhero na to. Pati kami naaawkward, para kasing. para talagang may mali eh. Nagulat na ng a din kami ng makita namin si Nika na kasama ni Franco. Ang gulo naman ng sitwas yon. Hay nako, basta, gagampanan lang namin yung role namin sa gabing ito, sabi ni ate Cheska ang plano raw pagbatiin si Rhia at si Franco. Sana magwork. Good luck.

Rhias POV I dont know what to do as of the moment. Lets say, gumaan ng konti yung p akiramdam ko kasi I dont see any signs of Nika. Pero, still, that doesnt change an ything. Lumalabas pa rin na pinagmukha nila akong tanga. Lets dance o_O

CHAPTER 28 last dance

now playing: CRAZY FOR YOU Sure. Sure?! Did I just say that? Tanga! Bat ba ako puma yag? diba dapat, tinanggihan ko kasi nga galit ako? Great. Kailangan ba talagang yan ang song? Not funny. Franco looks like hes drunk. Tsss. Kaya naman pala inay a niya akong sumayaw. Eto naman ako, nagpakatanga, pumayag. Idiot! >_< Kamusta ka na? Wow, nice question. very nice. very. Ako? Hindi ok kaw? I was just being honest . Why? Is there something wrong? WTF?! Nagkaamnesia ba to? Seriously, sorry ah. sorry talaga Sus! akala ko naman. Bat ba tayo nagkaganito? Hindi ko rin alam eh Sh*t, wa man atang patutunguhan tong pinag-uusapan namin eh. Ano na bang nangyayari sa atin ? ok pa ba tayo? tayo pa ba? Tsss, di ko na napigilan, litong-lito na kasi ako eh , halos sasabog na ako. Once we were like birds, together flying... Never did it tell me to stop soaring For I am in action with the one who keeps me breathing.. . Suddenly we bumped into something and the next thing I knew, there we were, su ffering thats deep. Tears started to fall. What are you trying to say? ouch, my hear t it feels like its slowly torn into pieces Rhia umiiyak din ba siya? ????? Patawari o ako tapos bigla na lang siyang umalis Franco wait!!!! I ran as fast as I could to c atch him pero mabilis siya ehdi ko na inabutan. Happy birthday And there, I ended up crying in this place where Im alone. It hurts, so much. No words confirmed our br eak up, but I can feel it. Diba nga, action speaks louder than words. This is th e end of our adventure, isnt it? I quit, I give up. While Ive been trying to make this tears disappear by giving myself some hope of curing the situation, it just gone worst. Trying to prevent it from coming made it much harder, made it much painful. I know I did something. I know I went wrong but it was just one mistake , one unintentional mistake. If only pero wala na talaga, everything disappeared with a blink of an eye. Biglang nagkahiwalay si Superman at Superwoman sa ere, a ng masakit, wala ni isa sa kanila ang may nagawa para magtagpo sila ulit. After 2 hours, andito pa rin ako, nakahiga sa lupa, nakatingin sa langit, talking to m yself, looking at the stars, maraming bituin, pero wala ni isang bituin ang umag aw sa atensyon ko. Ibig sabihin, wala na yung star na hawak-hawak ko dati, nawal a na. Gusto mo?

Inabutan niya ako ng beer. Here he is, drunk. No thanks. Sige na. ang KJ mo naman. la sing nga siya. Ayoko ko nga sabi eh! umalis na ako Rhia. pinigilan niya ako. Stop it asing ka na! let go of and he kissed me, on the lips. It lasted for a second and t he rain started to pour. Ano na naman ba to?! Tama na Franco! Tama na! tinulak ko s iya papalayo sa akin. I love you and he fell in the ground. Now what?! Hihingi ako ng tulong? effffff. Tuloooooooong! Tulooooooooooong! Nakailang sigaw na ako pero wala pa ring dumarating, of course, maririnig ba naman nila ang boses ko? eh, Im in the middle of nowhereunder the heavy downpour of the rain. Iniwan ko muna si Franco sa ground. Its not what you think it is, I will not abandon him, hindi ak o ganon kasama, hindi ko naman gagawin yun kahit na siya mismo ginawa yun sa akin . Pumunta muna ako sa ball, cause I know everybodys there after a few walk, nakara ting na ako. Shoot, Am I in the right place? Why cant I see a single creature in this place? kani-kanina lang punung-puno to ng mga tao ah, where is everybody? Wh ere are they?! Ano to? palabas na naman ba to? Hindi nakakatawa kung ganon nga. I c hecked the parking lot, the only car Im seeing is mine and Francos. Sinet-up ba ni la kami? Im so not in the mood tonight. Great. So ako na lang ang magbubuhat sa l alakeng to. 500 meter walk din yun mula sa parking lot papunta kay Franco. Its ra ining, hes heavy. God help me. Parusa ba to? Hindi pa ba sapat yung pang-iiwan niy a sa akin? ~_~ Finally, umabot ako ng buhay sa sasakyan ko. Approximately, it is a 20 minute drive to Mendozas residence, thats without traffic. Unfortunately, it took me 45 minutes to reach there house, dahil sa traffic na dulot ng ulan, hal os di na ako makagalaw sa sobrang lamig, basang-basa ako sa ulan eh. Errr, Im hat ing this whole thing. Pagdating ko sa bahay nila Franco Tao po! naku naman! may tao ba dito?! Naku! Sorry po maam! naku po! ano po bang nangyari sa inyo? Long story, p apasukin mo muna kami ah Sige po Andito ba sila ate Ate Cheska? Wala po eh umalis y business trip daw po kasi siya what?! Eh, sino na lang ang andito? Ako po mabuti n npero wait, bakit nakabihis panlakad si Ate? Aalis ba kayo? Ay, opo, hinintay ko lan g si sir, may emergency kasi, sinugod sa ospital yung anak ko.

NO!!!! ha?! Maam, iwan ko na po muna kayo dito ah kayo na po bahala kay sir, pasensya po talaga Aheh errrrrrrrr! no choice, kelangan ko munang samahan tong lalakeng to. N kakastress! Bwiset! May pasok pa naman ako bukas. Ill jut get him to his bed and Ill get out from this place. As usual, just the picture of a girl, taking the shi rt of her man ganon nagising ata kahit anong mangyari tandaan mo, mahal na mahal kita . tsss, hes sleeptalking. Yah right, whatever. Talk to the hand. Ayoko na, Ive had enough, Ayoko ng maniwala sa lahat ng pinagsasabi niya. Bakit ba ganon? Nagtiwala naman ako ah, kulang pa ba yon? Should I hold on? or should I let go? Either way , parehong masakit. Kaya wag na lang. Umalis na ako, iniwan ko na siya. At least naman ok na siya, better than how he looked like a while ago. Ex-girlfriends go od deed? whatever.

CHAPTER 29 trapped

Rhias POV Why does he reminds me everything about him? Magkamukha na nga sila, ha los pare-pareho pa yung sinasabi nila. Etong blue oh, maganda Tsss. Right, imagin ation ko lang yan, masyado ko lang kasing iniisip kaya nagmumukha silang iisa. T he weird thing about Francis is how the way he looks and how he talks makes a to tal difference, he looks like a stranger, but he talks like an angel. His appear ance is so strange, but the moment I spend time with him, everything change. 1 m onth later I survived a month without talking to him. Francis was right, I need to be strong. Kaya hinarap ko, I live every day fighting to overcome whatever Im feeling. I started to accept it, I started to accept the truth. But everytime I see him, everytime our eyes meet, makes leaving him so much harder, so much hard er. Sobrang awkward. Ang galing ko nga eh, kasi natiis ko pa. Nakikita yung ex m o, everyday, close to you, inches away from you, tapos at the end of the day, na kikita mo siya may kasama ng iba, ok sana kung nakikita mo siyang nakangiti, per o, since then, since nag lie-low na kami sa isat isa, hindi ko na nakikita yung n giting suot-suot niya parati. Ang hirap mag-adjust. Change was never easy during the past month, I fight to hold on and I fight to let go. Ang gulo! Marami na r ing nangyari, which made me tougher and more independent. Di na masyado kami nag sasama ng dudes, pano eh busy na sila sa mga boyfriend nila. Yes, may boyfriend na sila. Kyri and Mawee are already together, so as with, Joan and Harvey. And me? Single. Hindi ko na rin nakikita si Francis. Last na yung sinamahan niya ako sa mall nung nag cutting classes ako. Kaya naman, madalas na lang akong mag-isa. K ahit sa bahay, wala sila mommy at daddy eh, nasa Japan. Si Gab naman, ewan. I fo rgot. Hindi na rin ako masyadong gumagala, hindi na ako nakakapag-gimik together with Ate Cheskas angels. Basta, naging boring yung life ko. Nagfade lahat ng col ors na dati masyadong bright. All I do now is focus on my studies, yeah right. N agmukha akong nerd, whatever, as long as Im busy enough to keep myself away from thinking about my miserable past, kahit pa magkandakubakuba na ako, makalimutan ko lang yun. Aside sa pag-aaral, I also keep myself busy by sewing clothes, naka 9 looks na ako since nung kami pa ni Franco pati yung pinapagawa ni Francis, tap os na rin. I wish to see him again, nakalimutan ko na kasi yung feeling na may k asama eh. Isa pa tong si Alex, 1 month na ring hindi nagpaparamdam. Wew, iniwan n a nila akong lahat. Thats how miserable Ive become during the past month. at drama rehearsals, 9 p.m. Im not feeling well, feeling ko may fever ako, ewan, basta, I feel dizzy. Kaya umupo na lang muna ako sa isang sulok. Guys, pakikuha naman nun g mga props sa janitors quarter sino ang pwede diyan? Ako na! great. Ako na I insi a Mabuti at Hinayaan niya ako, naku kung hindi, baka ano ng nagawa ko sa kanya.

The fact that he did this favour to me makes me thing theres still something between us, parang gusto ko pang lumaba n, pero natatakot akong mabigo at masaktan muli. Wala na nga bang love? tapos na nga ba lahat? Why am I not convinced that everythings over between us. If so, ho w long should I hold on? How soon should I let go? How do I completely move on? Those questions will be left unanswered until I soon forget that I fell for the wrong guy who took my heart and threw it away as if it were nothing, as if he ne ver felt the same. 2 days after Huy!

Hmmm, actually di naman ako pissed off kasi andito sila, I think i ts actually fun that theyre here. The only thing that I dont want to consider is th e way they treat each other, I mean, look at them, theyre happy together. It remi nds me of how Franco and I were like way back when were still in love with each o ther. Everytime I see them, kahit sino naman, kahit nagsostroll ako sa mall magisa, pag nakakita ako ng couple, naaalala ko talaga yung dating Franco at Rhia. N ood na tayo. Ok.. And here, dinala pala namin yung favorite food mo, cookie monster and mr. Chips with matching Ice coffee. Your welcome Right. I havent said thanks yet . What do they want from me? What do they want to see? Me smiling in awe for rec eiving these treats? Errr, yah right, these are my favourites, and Im glad they s till know about these, but the thing is, naalala ko si Franco! errr! Ano ba?! Im trying my best to move on na eh! Destiny?! So not good. -_- Sana ganyan ang love s tory ko no? Swerte ni Jamie Ang sama mo namang girlfriend, di ka ba kontento sakin?

Di maganda pakinggan sa tenga, tama na nga yan! manoo d na tayo ang sabihin mo INGGIT ka lang! Hindi na nakasagot si Paolo tapos bigla na l ng lumabas.Tinamaan naman ako dun. Inggit ka lang. Sino nga bang hindi, eh ang s weet-sweet nila, for the nth time, why do they have to do that in front of me? N abobother na naman ako, naaalala ko naman yung failure ko sa love na yan, tsss. Ka ya lumabas na din muna ako. There I saw Paolo hmm, mukhang malayo ata yung iniisi p niya ah. Pao? is it ok if I join you? Sure. may problema ata to eh.

Ok ka lang? Honestly, hindi.. I knew it. Why? hmm, tinamaan ka ba sa sinabi nila Kyri ? mmm, sabihin na nating OO. Mind if I ask why? Siguro nga naiinggit lang ako ???? o have this perfect love story masaya ako sa girlfriend ko, masayang-masaya kami Tap os? 6 years na kami, mag seseven na dapat, Grade 5 pa nung naging kami, she was my puppy love and I was hers too we were high school sweethearts, walang kupas yung loveteam namin. 6 YEARS?! Grade 5?! Joke ba yun?! Grabe naman ah, ang aga-aga lum andi nitong si Paolo, tsss. Pero bilib din ako ah, umabot sila ng ganun katagal, to think, they were still kids when they started the relationship. Wow. I mean W OW. pero, what happened? Natigilan si Paolo sa pagsasalita for about 2 minutes, mas naging malungkot yung mukha niya, and then nagteteary eye na siya. Oh no. And then one day, bigla na lang siyang nakipagbreak sakin, nabigla talaga ako, di ko lubos maisip kung bakit niya sinabi yun, eh, masayang-masaya naman kami, wala n amang nagbago, I can still feel that we love each other so much. Oh no, naiiyak na talaga si Paolo. Is this my fault? I tried to stop her, lumuhod ako sa harapan n iya, nagmakaawa, lahat na ginawa ko para pansinin niya ako, nagpaulan ako ng wal ong oras sa tapat ng bahay nila, pero wala pa rin. Di niya pa rin ako pinansin, di niya man lang ako kinausap. The next thing I knew, umalis na siya papuntang S tates. Im sorry to hear that Pao Di ko man lang siya pinigilan I never heard from he ince that day all throughout the year, nahirapan ako magmove on, sobrang mahirap, minahal ko Siya Rhia, minahal ko siya ng sobra, halos sa kanya na umiikot yung buhay ko, anim na taon din yun eh, anim na taon ang masakit, di man lang nalaman kung bakit kami nagkahiwalay, basta biglaan na lang. Sa isang iglap lang, wala n a kami. Wait, familiar ata. Sa isang iglap lang, wala na kami. Masyado ko siyang m inahal, dahil ang alam ko ganun din siya sa akin, halos binigay ko na buong buhay ko sa kanya, no wonder sobra akong tinamaan ng mawala siya sa piling ko. Isang taon na ang nakalipas pero wala pa rin naiisip ko pa rin siya. Kawawa naman si Pao lo, ang bigat nga ng dinadala niya. Bakit ba kasi bigla na lang siyang iniwan ng babae? eh, ang gwapo niya naman at ang bait pa. Hanggang ngayon, iniisip ko pa r in kung anong nagawa ko at bigla niya na lang akong iniwan, alam ko sa sarili ko na mahal niya ako. Hanggang ngayon, may bumubulong pa rin sa isip ko na hanapin ko siya at ipaglaban yung kung ano man ang pwede pangipaglaban, pero last month lang Nagkita kayo?! Oo nagkita kami, gustung-gusto ko siyang yakapin ng makita ko siy a pero

Pero ano? Hindi pwede Bakit hindi? Rhia, may anak na siya, dala-dala niya nga tapo ta ko na lang, na may lumapit sa kanyang lalake ang sakit, grabe, parang dinurog yung puso ko ng pinong-pino Oh God Ibig sabihin, umalis yung babae kasi nabuntis si ya ng random guy? WTF?! Shes stupid. Hindi ko man siya kilala, pero, I want to ri p off her head. I had a second broken-heart, mas malala pa sa first, alam mo yung feeling na, ang rami mo ng pasa sa katawan, tapos patuloy ka pa ring sinusuntok ? ganun eh. Pao, Im so sorry to hear that. I really wish I can do something.. You ca n Rhia.. I can? How? Ha? Ayokong matulad ka sakin, one broken heart is enough, masyad ong unbearable pag twice. What are you trying to say? Si Franco, bat ba kayo nagkagan yan? Ano bang nangyari sa inyo? Bat di mo subukang alamin? Subukan mo Rhia, malay natin, hindi pa huli ang lahat, baka may magawa ka pa to save what you once hav e. Thats hard Pao Its up to you basta ang masasabi ko lang, alamin mo muna bago ka s ko, hindi pa huli ang lahat, hindi pa the end. wala pa namang formality yung break up niyo diba? Oo, pero parang.. Yan, ikaw na mismo nagsabi, pero, parang Rhia, be str ng, fight. Be strong? Im trying, eh makita ko lang si Franco nanghihina na ako, an o na kaya pag kinausap ko na siya, pag pinag-usapan namin yung dating kami? Magm umukha lang ata akong tanga niyan eh. Fight? How? di ko nga kaya magpakatatag eh , lumaban pa kaya. Ano ba naman to. Kelan ba kasi ako makakapagmove-on? Hey guys, ano bang ginagawa niyo dito, nasa climax na tayo, tara na Sige, sunod lang ako. Pag dating ko sa movie room. Pffft. Climax pala ah, climax na nga, eh tulog na naman silang lahat. Ok fine, I wont spoil their sleep, hayaan ko na lang sila matulog jan, matutulog na din ako. They look comfortable naman so, iwan ko na lang muna sila. Pao dito ka rin ba matutulog? Hindi, uuwi na lang ako Ah, sige, ingat Sige,

Naglakad na ako papunta sa room ko tapos tinawag ako ni Paolo Rhia.. lumingon ako. Pa g-isipan mo yung sinabi ko At umalis na siya. Pag-isipan mo yung sinabi ko. Pao Oh? tuhin man ng puso ko pero pagod na ang isip ko. Pag ginawa ko yun, di lang isip ko ang sasabog pati puso ko madudurog. Di niya ata narinig eh. Ewan talaga! liton g-lito na ako. Basta! Ayoko ng isipin yan. Ayoko na!

CHAPTER 30 last dance

Buti sana kung ang babai t ng mga professor dito, eh ang hiraphirap pa naman habulin. Tsss. Why do I even bother anyway? Why do I act like Im concerned. Whatever, nakakainis lang kasi, d i ako makapagfocus. Loko-loko talaga siya, deans lister pa naman. Sayang naman ku ng matatanggal siya. Idiot. Natapos na ang first day ng final exams. Last day na bukas. I didnt mind going home early to cram, its not good. Kaya I rewarded myse lf by having a sip of coffee. Pagpasok ko sa coffee shop, there I saw Franco magisa sa isang table, tulala.Ayoko siyang lapitan, ayoko siyang tingnan, ayoko siy ang makita! Peroerrr, come what may! Franco. why did I even bother to approach him, wala naman siyang sinagot, tiningnan niya lang ako. errrr! Hey, listen to me?! na kakanis ah! He answered me with a blank stare. Eff! Are you nuts?

Im t rying to be good here. Fine, bahala ka jan! Sayang naman yung standing mo, bahala ka sa buhay mo! Tumayo na siya, paalis na sa table niya. Sh*t, I want to rip off his empty brain, hindi man lang siya nagsalita. Fine! Naglakad na siya palabas. Rhia Tiningnan ko lang siya Please hold on Tapos lumabas na siya. Ang dami kong sin , tapos yung lang yung sasabihin niya? Please hold on? What does that have to do with everything I said? Ang bastos niya rin ah, Im trying to be concerned at the moment, wala naman akong ibng intention ah, I did that as a concerned classmate . No more, no less. Nagstay ako sa coffee shop, tapos nanood lang ng movie sa Ip ad ko. Tapos sinundo ako ni Gab, nice brother. Hows your exams?

Nice one Gab. LOL. Natawa ako dun ah. ASSUMER. K. Fine. Hi! Im Rhia the ASSUMER. May ganon ba sa dictionary? Idiot. Kahit pala workaholic si Gab, may sense of humor din pala siya. Nerd na kung ner d. At least naaaliw ko yung sarili ko, naeentertain ako. I know its not normal s taying up to 3 in the am for studying purposes. But, its the only way, I pull mys elf over thinking about that failure, and besides, its productive enough. I earn a lot of profit and incentives. The next day. last day ng finals namin. And surp risingly, Franco showed up. Clap-clap-clap. Nagstart na kami sa first subject, o k naman, carry ko, focused na ako the whole duration ng exams, unlike yesterday, di ako mapakali. Good thing this epic hero is already here. Maaga akong natapos sa exam. 30 minutes ahead of everybody. So nagnap na lang muna ako. Since wala naman akong dapat isipin dahil tapos na ang exams. Nastress ulit ako, now what? Wala na naman akong pag-aabalahan. Meaning, Ill end up thinking over that crap, t ssss. >_< Ms. Lao. Ms. Lao.. oh my God! nakatulog ata ako, errrr!

Errr. nakakastress! >_< But if theres someone I wish I could spent time with , yung mapapasaya ako the way Franco makes me happy. It would be Francis. Nakaka inis naman, san na ba kasi yung mushroom na yun? Destiny please be good to me. K ahit ngayon lang. Siguro naman, deserve ko yan, I did my part. Di naman ako nags uicide dahil nawala yun boyfriend ko diba? di naman ako nagpabaya sa studies ko. Oo nga naman, why dont I come with them, its one way to forget about that crappy failure. Is it really? Hmmm, on the second thought, Its actually not. Makakakita lang ulit ako ng happy couple meaning, maaalala ko naman si Franco meaning, maa awa na naman ako sa sarili ko. So better not.

Id rather surf the net baka sakaling maabutan ko pa si Alex. Pagbukas ko sa fb naka kainis naman oh, kelangan ba talagag yang status na yan ang dapat kong abutan? I ts from Franco Franco Marion Mendoza is struggling to win this adventure. And wh at was that suppose to mean? Im sick of being this bothered-clueless girl. Theres on ly two things, two things that will take me out of this getting-in-my-nerves situa tion. First, tapusin to by talking to Franco, that will work, if, hell talk to me to. Second, hands off the sitch and step forward leaving all memories with him. So which is which? The first one doesnt look so much sure, like I said, it will only work if hell talk to me. The second one sounds better. hmmm, so. Ill take the second option. HANDS OFF. Ill do as what my mind told me. HANDS OFF. HANDS OFF. H ANDS OFF. HANDS OFF. HANDS OFF. Alex Anthony: Best Rhia Margarette: Hi Best! Alex Anthony: musta? Rhia Margarette: Ok lang, tapos na yung final exams. Alex Antho ny: Congrats! wun? Rhia Margarette: Bahay. Alex Anthony: wud?

Rhia Margarette: OK! chat you soon, miss you so much Madali naman akong kausa p eh. Madali din akong mablackmail. No wonder napapaniwala ako agad ni Alex. Ale x is right, I should unwind. And besides, ngayon ko lang naisip, paano ako makak apagmove on kung takot ako magsimula? Right? Right! Its time I get off this lone ly mask.

Lumingon ako. and I saw Franco. with Nika. AWESOOOOOOOME -_-

Im so proud of you . Lets dance! Sure lets party!!!

Hinila nila kami sa dance floor. KAMI, as in, Franco and I ang sama nga nila eh, ako at si Franco lang ang hinila nila si Nika naman dinedma lang nila. Meanies ta laga. The music is so cool, nakakaenergize. Nakakatanggal stress. I know Im no go od in dancing but the music makes me want to go wild! WOHOOOOO! Siksikan na kami sa dance floor, nasa likod ko lang si Franco, kaharap ko naman si Kyri, and bes ide me, sila Kyri at Mawee, and I cant see Paolo and Harvey around anyway, di ko n a pinansin, nag-enjoy lang talaga ako Suddenly, nagchange yung music, from party music to mellow. WTF?! Errr, medyo lumuwag yung dancefloor. Ayan na, ang sweet n a ng mga lovers Kyri and Mawee, Joan and Harvey, and all others. Yah, whatever. P ara akong batang nawawala sa mall, lumingon-lingon ako sa paligid ko I feel so al one, so sad. paglingon ko sa likod ko there Franco was standing too. Umalis na ako babalik na lang ako pag party music na ulit Rhia. He stopped me and he held my hand s Dance with me ??? Please Pumayag naman ako. The music was so close. During the a ni isa sa amin ang nagsasalita. All I know isa that Im dancing with my Alex, he hugged me and hugged me back. Our hearts were so close to each other. I cant but let the tears in my eyes drop. I can hear his heart beat. I can here it talking to me, I can here it crying, and I can here mine struggling. I can feel our hear ts longing for something, and then I realized, we were longing for each other. I wasnt able to hold on, naiyak na talaga ako. Ano ba kasing nangyari sa amin? Di k o naman yun natanong, pero I can feel his loneliness. His hug tells me everythin g. And I can feel the his tears dropped to my forehead. Can I not end this dance please? And he whispered something. I miss flying with you. I was wordless. I dont know what to say, I dont know where to start, but one thing is for sure, I still can feel the love we once had. The dance felt like eternity. The next thing I s aw we were on the center of the dancle floor, and the other couple are aroung us. And then I realized, this is just another drop from the heavens, and if I take so much of it, Ill end up longing for it when its gone. So, I stopped it. Mas nap aiyak ako, bumitaw na ako kay Franco. Tama na Franco And I ran away. He tried to sto p me by holding my hands I looked at him and I can see him struggling he sad nothi ng Let go Franco Lumabas na ako I dont know where to go, I cant drive yet, I cant d like this. So I get in the car and let every emotions out. Why is he doing that? Di ko na talaga siya maintindihan eh. Nakayuko lang ako nakasandal sa manubela b iglang may kumatok sa window ko. Paglingon ko. Oh Francis, you scared me. Binuks an ko yung car ko at pinaupo ko siya sa passenger seat. Its ok Rhi let it out Alex? Ikaw ba yan?

Kahit ako, hindi ko rin maintindihan si Franco eh, pinapagawa niya sakin to, bat di na lang siya gumawa nito? Pag naririnig niya naman yung mga kwento ko tun gkol sa pinagdadaanan ni Rhia, tumatahimik lang naman siya tapos yung mukha, muk hang nabagsakan ng universe. I wish he could hear my cries so that he could feel me suffer. I wish he could witness me struggle to win this battle, so that he wo uld come running to rescue me. Pusang ama! Hayop!

Baka makita kami ni Rhia Hinintay ko na lang na umali s si Rhia mabuti at di na rin siya nagtagal mabuti rin at di niya ako napansin. Na ng makita kong nakaalis na siya, umalis na rin ako at sinakay ko si Franco sa ko tse. Iuuwi ko na nga lang to Isa pa tong ang lakas ng tama hayop! Wala na atang mas aangat pa sa madrama nilang storya eh. Wala namang sinasabi si Franco, di naman siya nagsasalita pero umiiyak siya. Lintek, ang bading. Nastuck kami sa traffic, tiningnan ko siya dun ko lang narealize na dumudugo-dugo na yung kamay niya. Nak u naman! Ano sa tingin niya? Kumot lang yung sinusuntok niya? Loko-loko talaga to ng lalakeng to. Imbis na umuwi kami, sa emergency room kami napadpad. Amp! Rhias POV And there he was again. My other hero, I mean my newly-discovered hero. Hes the type of hero who comes out at the perfect time. There are those heroes w ho comes out in action and started battling, but theres also this hero, the one l ike Francis the mushroom/ Spiderman, who saves the ones who were left in the bat tle. Its like: when one is fighting, the other is catching others from falling. To elaborate that, hmmm, its just like saying, the hero who keeps on battling is so busy fighting and trying to win the action that he forgets to see who really needs his strength, is it the villain whos already weak but needs to be fought t o death or the victims whose wounds gone worst? And then the other hero who catc hes those who are falling, are the ones whom we call selfless, like Francis, I g uess. He fights but the moment he notice his co-hero is feeling the moment, he l ets it star the moment, instead of competing against who really should be praise d after the battle, he goes flying and catching those wounded victims. Ok thats i t. Ive made enough comparisons.

Ewan ko nga ba, kumakain naman ako sa tamang oras, may snacks pa ako, thrice a day. Pffft. Di masyado ako lumalabas-la bas the past few weeks, I stay home and sew, sew, sew, sew like the wind! Im tryi ng to work on this fashion debut. Madalas mag-isa lang ako kung lumalabas man, any way, lumalabas lang din naman ako to take pictures and to get some inspiration. Today Ive decided to go out and inhale some fresh air, so as to get some inspirat ion. I decided to go to this eco-park, which I heard was so good, according to t he reviews in the internet. As usual mag-isa lang ako. I dont bother calling my d udes. kasi naman wala sila. Theyre out of the country. Sayang nga di ako nakasama, I just really need to finish this collection Im working on. Anyway, nagpromise n aman ako na sasama na ako sa kanila sa susunod na sembreak. After a 2-hour drive , nakarating na ako sa eco-park. Entrance pa lang maganda na. Ok, good impressio n, I hope itll last. I started taking some pictures good thing this lens works so well even if Im far away from the object I wanted to capture. I was zooming to ca pture this fancy object, but Im having hard time to perfect the focus, kasi medyo pasmado na yung kamay ko. while I was struggling may nakikita ako. its no multo, ang liwanag pa kaya. Im seeing this familiar face, and then I realized its. its Francis! So I called him.. Francis! that was already loud but I think he didnt notice me, so I tried again this time, mas malapit na. Francis!!! Got him, I think I got his att ention already, pero lumilingon-lingon pa siya, maybe di pa niya ako nakikita.

Francis! here! Yez! Nakita niya ako! Oh my, this simply means, I wont be alone. Niz e one. Ui! Ui! and then he looked at me, lumakad ng paikot-ikot while clapping his h ands. ?????. Whats that suppose to mean? Finally! Finally what? Finally we meet? No ally we meet na hindi ka umiiyak. tsss. Right. Oo nga no! Arent you happy? hahahaha . Im glad to see you here. Ako rin hmm ano bang ginagawa mo dito? mag-isa ka lang? Na rerelax yup, mag-isa lang ako. Ikaw talaga, masyado kang emo. Ikaw rin kaya see, wala kang kasama oh Kinukunan ko siya ng pictures, perfect finally, may replica na ako s a mukha niyang biglaan na lang sumusulpot at nawawala. Ui, tigilan mo na yan camera shy? LOL Hindi baka madiscover ako mahirap na. Kapaaaaaaaaal! Ang ganda ng camera m nks. Thanks to Franco. Photographer ka? No hobby ko lang Wow, ang yaman ng hobby mo ally binigay lang sakin to.. Yaman Ni superman Oops, sensya Rhi Ok lang, Im s grats ang sarap sa tenga pakinggan.. How come? Na nakamove on ka na? kasi naman, iyak ka na lang ng iyak, ngayon ang sarap pakinggan na malakas ka na na masaya ka na. . Its good to hear that someone cares thanks Francis.

My day didnt go so boring. And for the first time, nakikita ko na ang sarili ko s a pictures. Credit goes to Francis for his shots. Masaya talaga siyang kasama. H es the strangest friend ever. I dont even know why I trust him. He gives me this i nstant happiness, which I could not see to anybody else. He opens a new chapter, and makes it interesting, and then closes it and starts a new one. Masaya na ak o na ganito na lang kami. Its not what you think it is. Ayoko naman siya maging boyfriend no. What I mean is, this kind of friendship. Kontento na ako na pasulp ot-sulpot na lang siya tapos mawawala lang ng parang bula. As long as Im happy wh enever we see each other, all is well. At least sa kanya, wala akong expectation s, meaning di niya ako madidisappoint. Pero kahit ganito kahit anong gawin ko no m atter how hard I try to keep myself busy and do stuffs to keep my mind from wand ering, I still cant refrain from thinking over our wasted relationship. Tssss. Ca use up to now I still cant answer the questions my heart always ask, I still cant find the cure to this scar. Salamat sa pag-ibig na yan. K. Huy! schtupid. kanina pa p ala ako nakatulala. errr. Oh! Ang lalim ng iniisip mo. ah. san ka inabot? sa galaxy ba? Pshhh wala, may naalala lang ako Wala, tapos may naalala ang gulo mo, kung ano ma yan, ayoko ng alamin baka Thats enough Yes maam. Rhi. Ill go ahead wow, med g mga goodbyes niya ah. nakakapanibago. Aba natuto ka na ah. Baliw. No, Im not si ks for your time, SEE YOU when? Ewan, see you. for real? nag-iisip siya kung kelan? o_O basta see you. pfft. akala ko pa naman magmemeet kami ulit. yung meet-up na pla nned talaga. Umalis na siya. Oh well, I hate goodbyes, wala naman akong idea kung kelan pa kami magkikita, it might be whenever, or if not, baka hindi na nga. Wag naman sana. Mahaba pa ang araw, so, I stayed and took more pictures. The more p ictures I get the more sources of inspiration Ill have. Hindi naman hassle kumuha ng picture kahit nasa damohan ako maganda kasi yung landscape design ng place, m asyadong convenient. Kaya ang ginagawa ko, walk-stop-take pictures, and it goes on. While I was taking some pictures may nakikita na naman ako, from my side visi on. Someones coming, a familiar silhouette, triny kong tingnan, pero I did not tu rn to my side completely. Seriously?! Franco and Nika. GREAAAAAAAAAAAAAT >_< San a di nila ako napansin Kunwari na lang akong walang nakita, I continued taking pi ctures Anyway, ilang steps na lang at malalampasan na nila ako at pag nalampasan na nila ako, tatakbo ako palayo. Thats it, thats my plan. Konting steps na closerclo serclosercloser ayan, nakalampas na sila ng mga 1 step from me. And I heard Nika th e great, say something. Frankie, magpapicture tayo.. LOL. thats so gay. FRANKIE. Po or Franco.

Excuse me. Eff. WHY ME?! Ang dami namang. errr, when I looked around, ako lang pala ang tao dito. ERRR! bat di na lang sila gumamit ng timer?! Fine, wala akong maga gawa, lilingon na ako. Goodness. Rhi-a.. Nagulat siya na nabigla na nagpapaklapast ic, kunwaring masaya na makita ako. Why cant she just be true to me?! or kung hin di niya talaga kaya, sana ayusin niya naman yung kaplastican niya yung hindi masy adong obvious. Goodness -_- What should I say?! Hi. Its nice to see you here WTF?! S ously?! Errrr! Nakakainiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis! Really?! Si Franco nasa likod lang ni Nika, he cant even look at me. Pfft. Is he that guilty? Loser. Yes uhmm, c an you take us a picture? I knew shed be asking this f*ckin favour. Pag-aaksayahan ba naman niya ako sa napakaepic niyang kaplastican kung wala siyang kailangan s a akin? Of course, thats what people do. Theyd be nice to you and after theyll take it as an advantage and then theyll abuse it. FINE!!!! ~_~ Ok. Yay! Yay ka jan! Relax Rhia Relax chill, stay cool, act as if that girl didnt steal your boyfriend, smile . show them youre happy. Ok? OK! Ang panget naman. Digicam. Tsss. Di ko mapepeke yung mukha ko, kasi diba pag dslr, natatago mo yung mukha mo, eh sa digicam, mas yadong show-off. Nakakabwiset na talaga ah. Ayan, hawak-hawak ko na ang camera. Errr, better start faking your facial expression Rhia. Or else. Are you ready. ok 1 ,2,3, smile! Eff. That 1,2,3 smile feels like forever. I cant even look straight t o the both of them. Seeing them together makes me feel so wasted. Parang yung mg a tira-tira na tinapon sa basura tapos pinulot ng mga batang-kalye. So not cool. E rrrr! Im mad but my face? sad. No! dont even think about crying. Its so not worth i t. Here Pwede isa pa? &*(%^$#@! Sure. 1,2,3 smile. I better get out from this pla e they see me crying. here, I have to go Tumakbo na ako Thanks And then I was weak ag in. The second time I took a picture of them, I wasnt able to hold a tear, pagpik it ko, tumulo yung isang luha. Kaya nagmadali na ako.

What is wrong with me? Di pa rin ba ako nakakapagmove on? Of course not, cause i f I already did, I wont end up crying here. Seeing them together, with those smil es, makes me feel like the most unlucky, unfortunate person ever alive. Their pr esence always reminds me of my failure, my imperfection, everything thats wrong w ith me! I could have been happy seeing them like that, if I wasnt dumped the way Franco did to me. Kung sana may sinabi siya, na may iba na siyang mahal, na hind i na niya ako mahal. It would be easier to accept everything. It would be easier to let go, it would be easier to move on. But he did nothing. Nagising na lang ako mula sa isang masamang panaginip at hanggang ngayon dala-dala ko pa rin. I w ent to a place where no one is, and I let everything out there. I shouted, I cri ed all I wanted is to end all of this suffering, to cut the agony. TO FORGET EVER YTHING.

CHAPTER 32 metamorphosis

Francis POV Amp. Muntik na yun ah! Kasi ganito talaga yun magkakasama talaga kami ni Franco at Nika sa park. nang marinig ko ang boses ni Rhia, humiwalay ako sa k anila. Tapos sinamahan ko si Rhia. Mabuti na lang talaga at di niya kami nakitan g magkasama, naku! kung nangyari pa yun, tapos! Sabog lahat ng sikreto namin ni s uperman niya. Masaya ako at sa unang pagkakataon, nakita ko si Rhi na hindi para ng binagsakan ng mundo ang mukha. Dun ko naapreciate kung bakit nagustuhan siya ni Franco, bukod sa masayahin siya, adventurous, maganda din siya pag masaya siy a. Pero nung makita ko siyang tulala, bumalik sa dati yung Rhia na madalas kong naaabutan, ang bilis magshift ng mood niya. Alam ko naman kung ano yung iniisip niya, kahit di niya pa sabihin, sa itsura niyang yun, isang bagay lang ang pinop roblema niya, isang bagay lang ang dahilan kung bakit siya naluungkot, nasa kany a na lahat eh pwera na lang sa pagmamahal ng superman niya, na kapatid ko. Gustun g-gusto ko talaga magkeep-in-touch sa babaeng yun, pero, naisip ko, wag na lang, kasi baka pag masyado kaming naging close, malalaman niya yung totoo. Mahirap n a, mas magiging komplikado yung sitwasyon. Kaya, were better off this way. Nagkita kami ni Rhia.. Kelan? San? Kanina, sa park.. Oh? Nagkausap ba kayo? Hindi Hindi , eh bat parang ang lungkot mo? Dude, nakita ko siyang umiyak ? Nakita ng dalawang ko yung pagtulo ng luha niya. Ewan ko sayo, ikaw lang naman makakaalam kung bakit e h. Di na siya sumagot. Basta ang si Rhia-namalungkot-na-ngayon ang pinag-uusapan, tu matahimik na si Franco. Subukan ko nga siyang tanungin kung bakit umabot sila sa ganito kung anong nangyari baka sakaling sagutin na niya ako Dude, ano ba kasi ang nangyari? alam mo, ako, matagal ko ng kinokomfort si Rhia, matagal ko ng binabal ita sayo yung mga pag-iyak ni Rhia.. pero hanggang ngayon di ko maintindihan kung bakit ko ginagawa ang lahat ng to Parang kinakausap ko lang ang pader ah. Hay nako , kelan niya kaya sasagutin yang mga tanong na yan? Ayan kasi, ayan tuloy. Ano n a? Iibig ka pa ba? Pag-ibig lang yan, pero lahat na ng paghihirap mararanasan mo . Sige tol.. iwan muna kita jan Hay nako. Pag-ibig nga naman. Ewan ko sa inyo! Chin eck ko yung fb ko. Yung fake fb ko. Wala lang, gusto ko lang. Pagbukas ko, aba! may isang message sa inbox, sino kaya to?

Hi Francis! I was scanning through your pictures, the ones youre into. And I sort of realized you could be a model. No joke yan. You just need some, hmmm, a litt le makeover and youre off to the runway. So, I was actually hoping if youd be one of my model for my upcoming fashion debut Please???? If its ok with you, see me thi s Wednesday, at the mall where you saw me, at the exact place, 10 am. P.S. Treat mo na lang sakin yan, kasi di na ako malungkot diba? Ill be waiting Si Rhia pala. Joke ba yun? Ako? magiging runway model? Nakakatawa. Makeover daw? Ang bading! Ayoko! Hmmm, pag-iisipan ko. Pero, parang ayoko talaga eh. Ewan, ti ngnan na lang natin. Rhias POV Wait. If Im not wronghmmm, I saw Franco and Francis at the same place, on the same day, but missed a split second to see them at the same time. Right? Ri ght. Bat ngayon ko lang naisip yun no? Why is my brain as slow as the snail at ra ndom times? Normal ba yun? o, talagang abnormal ako? Whatever. Maganda naman. I transferred all the picture to my notebook, hmm, I scanned it, and I found some potential inspirations, and good innovations. Napansin ko din yung picture ni Fr ancis, hmm, ang ganda ng pagkakuha ko (LOL, narcissist?), its so editorial. I re alized he could be the next icon in the Philippine Fashion Industry. LOL. Yes, h e looks sort of strange, but it just need some magic, a little work, and hell be good. Good as great. Kaya naman naisipan kong i-pm siya sa fb. I was taking chan ces, wala lang. Malay natin, magreply siya, o pumayag. Gusto ko kasi siya gawing , model sa advertisement ko for my fashion debut, hell be good on the tarp, and all other means of endorsements hell be interesting, yun bang, pag nakita mo, maiintr iga ka, macucurious, and because of youre curious, gusto mo ng alamin, and boom! pupunta ka sa fashion show ko! And please dont think, Im taking advantage of him of course not, in fact, gusto ko nga siyang imake-over to improve his look, pogi ka si siya kaso masyadong conservative basta ganun. A litter adjustments, alteration and hell be the next legend! Im crossing my fingers that hell show up. Pleaseeeee! Wednesday, 10 am As I said, Im taking chances here so, naghihintay ako dito, para di ako pagdudahan ng mga sales lady dito I checked there clothes tapos nagfifit, I buy a piece every 15 minutes. Errr, in fairness ah, ang mahal hintayin ni Franc is. 2 hours after, equivalent to 8 items err, wala pa rin siya I dont think hes comi ng. So umalis akong bigo. Pffft. Nakakafrustrate naman, pero I cant blame him any way. Fine. Makapagcoffee na nga lang. Haaay, I cant believe I spent over thousand s to wait for that mushroom. Di pa rin ako makamoveon na di siya nagshow-up, mea nie. I took a sip of coffee, and it was magic gumaan agad yung feeling ko Huy!

Francis! Youre so late! Anong late, baka ikaw! Anong ako?! Why me?! Two hours na kaya akong naghintay dun sa shop.. Pabalik-balik ako dun, pero wala ka talaga eh Wait. Of course!!!! Bat di ko ba naisip yun, the shop is like 200 sqare meters big maybe w hile I was in the fitting room, Francis was there outside. IDIOT RHIA! -_- Shoot, my bad. Im sorry. Ok lang yun, sakto! buti na lang nakita kita dito Buti nga Paalis dapat ako eh, tapos nakita kita. nagmumuni-muni na naman. tsss. right. kelan ko ba yan titigilan? yang muni-muni na yan? errr. Anyway, forget about it. Im sooooooooo oo glad youre here! Talaga? Oo kaya, for the first time, nagkita tayo ng planado.haha ah! Oo nga no.. hello?! ngayon mo lang naisip yun? weird. So ibig sabihin papayag ka na sa make-over and photoshoot? Nagnod lang siya. OMG! Is that a yes Ay hindi. Or no . Eh! Ang hina mo naman! siyempre yes, pupunta ba naman ako dito kung di ako papaya g. Hay nako Rhi, napakaloading mo talaga. Oo nga OMG! Im sooooooooooooooooo excited! like superb excited! Tara na First I brought him to this high-end shop for men there are lots of fab finds there, things I need to work his look, and rock it! Ang s aya naman nito, may Barbie doll ako. Lol. Hmmm, what do you call a boy doll? Bar bu doll? LOL. Yay, I got some BARBU doll!!! A real one! Sigurado ka ba dito? Of cou rse! Ok. Look, I wont make you look stupid ok? trust me Ill do the magic Ok. LOL masyado ni Francis, para siyang kinakabahan. Funny, ano to surgery?

Pumili na ako ng mga outfit. Those far from what hes always wearing. Nakikita kon g, dumidisagree yung mukha niya. so what? Wala na siyang magagawa, andito na kami eh. The sales lady accompanied him to the fitting room, together with the outfi ts I chose. Ako naman nakaupo na lang, waiting for him to get out with those out fit. Its so fun, natutuwa talaga ako sa ginagawa ko. Yay! 1st outfit up to the l ast, was so perfect, everytime lumalabas siya, its as if its not him, ever new o utfit makes him look even better. Natapos na kaming magshop for clothes and shoe s and it was the best shopping ever, I guess, kasi hindi ako ang gumasto. hehehe, kasi, he volunteered to pay for the clothes, kasi naman daw, magwa-one year na rin daw siyang di nakakabili ng damit. And I was like, WHAT?! that is a recordbr eaker, Hindi ko kinaya yan. I sweaaaaar. Next stop. Salon. His hair is a mess. I t needs a lot of work. I guess yun na lang yung dapat ienhance and Im done with m y Barbu Dolls makeover. I dont know whats worng with his hair, but it took us 2 hou rs in the salon. WTH?! Grabe naman yun But when he showed up. o_O OHMG! Si Francis pa rin ba tong kaharap ko? Hes no longer the nerd-looking strange-guy. He looks s ooooooooooooooo HOT. But why is he still wearing his eyeglass? Ano ba to. Matangg al nga. One more thing. Ano? Lets take this off. Pagtanggal ko sa eyeglass niya. h d at me, our eyes met each others glance. Shoot! Bat may spark! My goodness, munt ik na akong himatayin dun ah, nakakaet yung tingin niya, plus, hes so not him any more! Hes really changed! Nice work Rhia. On the second thought. I then realized, as we walk out through the Salon. Now, that hes got this makeover. He looks exac tly like Franco. EXACTLY like Franco. Naguilty tuloy ako, kasi naisip ko. I took advantage of him and made him look like my ex so that Id be happy once again. Per o that wasnt really my intention. Salamat Thats the only and last thin he said after the makeover and after we set apart from each other. Salamat.

CHAPTER 33 sick

After a week, nasubmit ko na ang layout ng tarp, invitation and pamphlets for my fashion debut. Yup. Nakunan ko na ng pictures si Francis, loots of pictures. The photoshoot with him was not so hard, as I expected it to be. I thought he would be a bit hard, stiff, emotionless,pero he proved me wrong, he was the exact oppo site, he knows how to follow instructions, he even creates his own pose, he know s how to innovate. Perfect! Siya na nga! Siya na nga ang magiging next fashion i con sa buong Pilipinas! ^_^V and I would be recognized for discovering him.Hell s ay in his future press conferencessssss, thanks to Rhia Margarette Lao, a great d esigner at a very young age for brining out the potential in me, which brought me to where Im standing right now. Tapos sasabihin ng mga nakikinig, WOW, we awe Ms. Lao a big favour, she just created a new trend in the industry and saved the ind ustry from falling apart Pagkatapos, papalakpakan nila ang pangalan ko, and then next thing they would do theyll come searching for me. Wow, wouldnt that be great?! Tsssssss. Ang layo talaga ng inaabot ng isip ko pag nagdadaydream. But the hard est part of the shoot was.. his exact similarity of Francos face, which made me un easy again for the nth time. Eff, ibig palang sabihin, Im so not over that guy. A nyway, whatever. Now, Im just so excited for my flight tomorrow, yay! Finally Im s eeing Alex. Oh yez! Oie what a courteous brother! WHAT?!!!! Di ako matutuloy WHAT? ou serious?! Alam o bang nakasalalay sayo ang buhay ko?! My instant happiness! Yo ure so not a brother. NOW WHAT?! Di rin ako matutuloy?! I hate you. Di ko napigila ng umiyak. Nakakainis ka Gab! I hate you!!! Sorry Rhi.. Nagdabog ako papasok sa ro om, like, binuhos ko ang lahat ng galit ko sa bawat steps ko, at the same time I was crying like a child left by her mom Rhia! ano pang tinatawag-tawag niya?! JOKE LAAAAAAAAAAAAANG! and then he laughed like hell. Sh****************************t! ! Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaab! Ang cute ng sissy ko pag-umiiyak. HAHAHAHAH! My brother almost killed me there, muntik na akong mamatay sa sinabi niya, sa so brang galit ko, tapos yun? sasabihin niyang joke?! WTH?! Di ko na lang siya hina bol, kasi alam ko, di ko naman siya maaabutan. Nakakainis talaga! But at least, AT LEAST, joke lang yun, meaning, matutuloy pa rin ako. Umalis muna ako sandali to buy some necessities for my long travel, so as to, get some pictures sa garde n ng mga de Leon. Bye, alis muna ako. K, wag ka ng bumalik ah Whatever, I hate you.

I love you Gab? Oh? Shut up! Take care Rhia ok? Whatever you acting-to-be-conce Hay nako, ang kulit-kulit-kulit-kulit-kulit talaga ng Gab nayan. Yes hes a grown man, but he acts like the kids in the kindergarten, pano ba siya nakagraduate? Sa ugali niyang yan? Pffft.

De Leons garden Alexs mom, is into flowers, orchids and stuffs like that. No wonde r how they have this gigantic garden. Sabi ng caretaker, sakto daw yung visit ko kasi blooming season ngayon. I know right? Magaling talaga ako tumiming. Colors are everywhere so I started to take some pictures something got my attention, its this red flower lying on the ground, its like a random flower flower that bloom ed out from nowhere, so kinunan ko yung ng picture. Nakayuko ako my head is facin g the ground and then someone. Best. Alex?! Di muna ako lumilingon sa kanya Alex? nga ba? I took off the camera from my face, and slowly shifted my glance. Wait.

Pffft. Tinulugan lang ako. Nakatulog na siya, hes sleeping like a baby, like a ch ild, and looks like an angel. Hanggang ngayon, hindi pa rin ako makapaniwala na nangayari to sa kanya. He still speaks like hes strong, but acts so weak. Inaaliw ko na lang ang sarili ko, by talking to him and stuffs like that, masyado kasin g painful yung tinititigan lang siya na nagkakaganito. Since nakatulog na si Ale x umalis na muna ako. I feel like drinking, so I went to this bar. I texted Kyri, Joan and Ate Cheskas angels, pero, ni-isa sa kanila di nagreply. I messaged Fran cis sa fb, in case hell have the time to show up. Pero, kahit wala akong kasama, pumunta pa rin ako. Anyway, I can control myself. There I was, alone, drinking. I can see guys looking at me. Pffft. MANIACS! Sige, subukan niyo lang talaga lum apit, and Ill break your bones till you suck all you pervert stares. Naka-10 bott les na ako, hmmm, it feels so good. Okay pa naman ako, I can still handle. I was about to get the 11th bottle of beer, when someone stopped me.

Francos POV Pinabasa sakin ni Francis yung message ni Rhia gusto sana pumunta ni Fr ancis kaso, di pwede, kasi nilagnat. Ayoko naman magpakita kay Rhia, kasi baka, masaktan na naman yun, at masaktan din ako pag nakita ko siyang ganon. Pero, hind i ako mapakali eh. Baliw din siya ah, iinom? mag-isa? Nakalimutan niya bang baba e siya? Ano ng mangyayari pag nalasing siya? Kaya, nagmadali na ako, baka ano pa ng mangyaring masama dun sa babaeng yun, troublemagnet pa naman yun Alam ko naman din eh na ako may kasalanan ng lahat ng to, kung bakit siya nagkakaganito. Bat ko ba kasi ginawa yun kanina? Nang maabutan ko si Rhia, lasing na ata siya. biruin mo, 10 bottles? tapos iinom pa siya? Langya! Adik pala to eh. Pinigilan ko siya. W ho are you? Get lost. Hindi niya ba talaga ako makilala? ganon na siya kalasing? Rh ia lets go.. No.. you go! Why are you doing this? Ok whoever you are secret lang n ? I met this hero who almost caused my death I was so mad at him, so mad. like the l ions groan, grrrrrrrrrrr!, but suddenly, he came at times when I needed a savior Lets go Ayoko na marinig to.

I want to rip off his head, the next thing I knew, he now dumped me, and now Im wasted. F*ck him! He wasted my love, he wasted my trust, he wasted everything I showed him, hes an asshole, idiot, dum bass! He f*ckin make me fall for him, he took my heart, threw it away as if it was nothing! he threw my love away, as if he never felt the same! I did not! Lintek, d i ko na napigilan. Napasigaw ako, napatingin siya sa akin. Lagot.. nakilala na n ya ako! L---O----L! see? I told you my story is so great, tingnan mo, diba, naape ktohan ka? HAHAHAHA! eff that epic hero. Sana mabanggaan siya ng eroplano habang lumilipad siya! I hate him!!! I hate him. I hate him. She hates me. Naknockdown n a si Rhia, mabuti na lang at pumunta ako dito. Kahit na narinig ko lahat ng sumb at niya, wag lang siya mapahamak. Dinala ko na siya sa bahay nila mabuti at wala si Kuya Gab, baka kasi isipin niyang nilasing ko kapatd niya. Pinahiga ko na si Rhia Nagising siya, tiningnan ako I loved you, but why didnt you love me back? Tapos nakatulog ulit siya. Mahal ko naman siya, minahal ko, at patuloy kong minamahal. Siguro nga, yun ang iniisip niya na sinayang ko ang pag-ibig niya, na ginago ko siya, na niloko ko siya. Sabihin na nating ganon nga, pero. hindi naman talaga. Na paramdam ko sa kanya yan, pero hindi ko yan ginusto. Oo! Gago na ako, dahil sina ktan ko ang babaeng pinakamamahal ko, at sa lahat ng pwede kong saktan siya pa. Mahirap din naman sa part ko ah, mahirap makita siyang nagkakaganyan, na nasasak tan dahil sa ginagawa ko. Alam ko, tarantado ako, walang kwenta, lahat na! Ipit na ipit na talaga ako eh. Wala na akong choice. Nung nagpaiwan ako dito sa Pinas nung pasko, nagkaproblema kami sa family, sa business. Masyadong complicated isa lang ang paraan kung papano masosolusyunan ang problemang yun.. Kailangan apruba han ang business transaction ng Nishima Corporation. Oo, company nila Nika yun. Pumayag sila na iapprove, pero sa isang condition daw Pakasalan ko daw si Nika Ipi t na ipit na sila Mommy, hindi alam nila Ate Cheska at Francis ang nangyayari, s a akin lang nila pinaalam kasi ako lang daw ang makakasagot sa problemang to. Ak o lang ang makakasalba sa sitwasyon.

Pinag-isipan ko ng mabuti pag pumayag ako, matutulungan ko ang mga magulang ko, m arami akong matutulungan, pwera na lang sa sarili kong maghihirap habambuhay. Pa g hindi naman ako pumayag, masyado kong iniisip ang sarili ko, mapapahamak silan g lahat. Kaya, yun wala na akong nagawa, pumayag na ako. Pumayag na akong maging miserable habambuhay Hanggang ngayon, di ko pa rin makalimutan si Rhia, di ko pa rin makalimutan lahat ng pinagsamahan namin. Masakit pa rin makita siyang mag-is a habang ako nakatali sa babaeng kailanman di ko natutunang mahalin. Sasabog na ata tung puso ko. Sira na ang ulo ko, durog na ang puso ko. Ewan ko nga ba kung bakit pa ako nabubuhay, eh pinipilit ko na ngang wag ng gumising, dahil bawat ar aw ng buhay ko, masamang panaginip. Bigla na lang nagkahiwalay sa ere si superma n at superwoman dahil sa isang napakasukdulang kalaban.

Alexs POV Akala ko, they lived happily ever after na.. nagtagpo nga sila, oo, tam a naman ako, pero di ko inaasahang magkakahiwalay sila ulit. Kung alam ko lang na ganon ang mangyayari, edi sana di ko na lang iniwan si Rhia pero, napag-isip-isipa n ko din, na mabuti na rin yun, kasi training na niya maging independent pag wal a na ako. Ang dami kong narealize sa storya ni Rhia. Ang dami kong natutunan sa kakornihan ng pag-ibig na yan. Pero dahil sa kakornihan na yan, narealize ko na iba talaga ang love. Nakakatawa nga eh, at naging kami ni Jamie. Hinding-hindi ko yun inaasahan sa simalat simula pa alam naman nating lahat na mortal kung kaayaw y ung babaeng yun, pero dahil sa nangyari sa amin ngayon, napatunayan ko nga na the more you hate, the more you love. Lintek, ang keso naman nun Meron pa.. sa dami ng pinagdaanan ni best, narealize ko na, love isnt being happy all the time, love c an make you feel happy even if things are wrong, it makes you be at your best wh en things

are worst, love may not be the most expensive necessity on Earth, but the feelin g you get when youre love is priceless, it may not be perfect. but its the best thi ng you could ever experience. Amp. Ok, tama na yun, masyado na akong nahawa kay R hia. Pero salamat sa kanya! Kinuwento na din ni Franco sa akin ang lahat. Oo, ala m ko na ang dahilan kung bakit nabigo na naman ang love story ng mga superhero n a to. Hindi ko naman siya masisisi, tama naman yung ginawa niya marami siyang natu lungang buhay pero yun nga lang, ang buhay ng pinakamamahal niya ang nadehado. An g hirap naman non! Nakakaawa talaga si best, kelan kaya magiging masaya yung love story niya? Bilib din ako sa kanya, kasi kahit ganon, sa dami ba naman ng pinagd aanan niya, kinaya niya pa, oo, madalas yung pagiyak at pagsumbong niya sa akin, pero despite it, hindi siya sumuko, patuloy pa rin siya. Siguro kung ibang tao y un, siguro kung ako yun, nagsuicide na ako. Ang tapang ni best. Hindi pa ako pwe deng mamatayno, no, no not yet.. May unfinished mission pa ako.

Pumunta ako sa bahay nila pagbukas ng gate, sakto! si Jamie, pero hindi man lang n iya ako binati, pagkita niya sa akin, sinara niya agad ang gate, maaga pa un, mg a 9 ng umaga.

Matapos nila akong k unan ng video, yung mga mukha nila akala mo nakakita ng treasure. Ay ewan. Isa y un sa mga tanong ko na kailanman di pa nasasagot. Kaya naman pagnamatay ako sana may makasagot sa mga tanong na ito: 1. Ano nga ba ang nauna ang itlog o ang manok ? 2. nagsasalita ba talaga ang mga hayop at laruan katulad ng mga napapanood ko sa tv? 3. Gaganda pa ba si Aling ______? 4. Kelan pa tatangkad si Mahal at Mura? 5. Pag ang sirena, tulad ni Mutya, niluto, lasang isda din kaya? Good luck sa m ga may gusting sumagot sa tanong nayan. Balitaan niyo na lang ako pag nasagot na. Nasulat ko na rin sa last will ko na dapat plastic yung kabaong ko, para see thr ough, ayoko ng may tinatago. Tapos yung suot ko, pink long sleeves, yung pants n aman, sa left side dapat kulay yellow, sa right side, neon blue. Gusto ko colour ful, para masaya. Ayoko naman na pinagluluksaan nila ako ng sobra. Dapat din hind i ako sa funeral house paglamayan gusto ko sa bar. Para, party, party. Yun lang s iguro ang huli kong habilin, eto ang huli. Ang maunang umiyak sa burol ko, siya masusunod. Kaya dapat nakangiti lahat.

CHAPTER 36 bestfriends

After we watched movie, naglunch kami, sa favourite caf namin. Sabay nagcoffee, I missed this sooooo much. Madalas na kasi akong mag-isa nagkakape. Siya lang kas i yung kilala kong mahilig din sa coffee. Kung pwede lang ako magpakaselfish, ma tagal ko na siyang inilayo kay Nika. Pero, Im not the desperate ex-girlfriend. Af ter sa mall, pumunta na naman kami sa park. Naglakad-lakad lang. Holding hands. I missed this superwoman.. ako din Mr. Chips sooooooooo much mahal mo pa rin ba ako? no, I hate this drama ayoko mapunta na namin kami sa arguments na yan. Oh look! ma y bikes oh magrent tayo.

Masaya, sobrang saya, parang yung dati l ang, kung pwede ko nga lang itigil ang oras, ginawa ko na, the moment we held ha nds. Matagal din ako naging miserable, at ngayon ko lang ulit naramdaman kung pan o maging masaya, salamat kay Alex. Ang sarap sa akiramdam yung nakikita ko ulit si Rhia na masaya, tulad ng dati, nakangiti lang siya parati, kinakausap ako ng matino.

CHAPTER 38 third world happy

Wala na si Alex No, it cant be. malakas pa siya the last time we saw each other, na gbibiro pa nga siya that time diba? diba?! Baka. baka, nasa garden lang, oo, he l oves flowers like her mom, baka andun lang siya kasama si Jamie. Tama, nasa gard en lang siya. Im sure. Nagmadali akong bumaba, kinakabahan, my heart is racing, m y tears are dropping, this is so not happening. Pagdating ko sa garden hinanap ko sila Alex at Jamie, paikot-ikot lang ako, nalilito ako kung san ako liliko sa s obrang laki ng garden, I was scared, but I did not lose hope. Maam Rhia, may hinah anap po ba kayo? Opo, si Alex san siya? Sobrang kinakabahan ako. Parang tumigil ang pag-ikot ng mundo ko, I have this urge to know where Alex really is, but I cant h ide the fear to hear that hes gone. Parang gusto na ayaw kong marinig ang isasago t sa akin. Si sir Alex po? Oo, si Alex nga.. Wala na siya. Wala na siya. And there wa a long pause. Natigil ang pag-ikot ng mundo ko, natigil ang pagtibok ng puso ko , natigil ang paghinga ko, parang pakiramdam ko, nawala din ako. WHY?! Alex whyd y ou leave me? Youre a meanie meanie! Bakit si Alex pa? Sana ako na lang sana iba na lang. Now what am I gonna do? Hes my only bestfriend, hes the only one who listens to me even if theres no worth listening for. He listens to me like no other, hes the only one who understands all of me. Alex. WHY?! Alam mo bang di pa ako ready sa lahat ng to? Yes, you keep on saying things to make me ready, but no, I wasnt prepared to hear all of it, I wasnt prepared to accept it, I wasnt prepared to let you go, I didnt expect you to leave me this early. to leave US so early Sino ng m agpapatawa sa akin? sino ng makikinig sa lahat ng pag-iyak ko? sino ng magtatang gol sa akin? lalo pat ngayon na aping-api ako. sino na ang magiging best/childhood friend ko? Sino na ang magiging Alex Anthony de Leon ng buhay ko? I feel like I lost half of my life. How can I go on now? With all of this glitches? Kahapon l ang ang saya-saya ko tapos ngayon nagising na lang ako na wala na ang isang taong pinakamalapit sa akin. Why is my life so miserable?! WHY?! WHY CANT I JUST BE HAP PY AND NOT END UP GLOOMY?! WHY?!

Saturday, de Leons residence-mini bar As requested by Alex, hindi siya sa funeral homes pinaglamayan. Hes crazy I know up to his death, loko-loko pa rin siya. As h e requested, sa bar namin siya pinaglalamayan, sa mini-bar ng bahay nila, actual ly its not mini. its as big as the normal ones. Tulad na rin ng nirequest niya, w ala masyadong mukhang parang namatayan dito. Including me. Im smiling as hard as I could, nangangawit na nga yung bibig ko eh. I never smiled this long, only for Alex. Kaya, Im pretty sure he wont hunt me at all. CONDOLENCE! read it right (di ko naman pwede sabihing, HEARD it right, kasi di niyo naman naririnig, diba?) as w e all know, pagsinabi mo yang salitang yan condolence, dapat normal lang. Dito, d ahil sa request ni Master Alex, pagsinasabi yan, parang ang saya-saya ng mga tao , parang party-party!. At first glance, di mo talaga masasabing lamay to ng isang nilalang na matalino-mabait-gwapo, ok, thats enough, Ive praised Alex so much alre ady, going back, ou can never tell that this is burial. For example, instead of drinking coffee and eating biscuits, people here are enjoying cocktail drinks an d fingerfoods. I have to admit, Alex have been the wisest dying person and the m ost organized and prepared. He planned all of this, he wrote every detail, thats how he is, I think, thats how he spent the rest of his days. Hey Jamie Hey best best st? Oo best Alex told me to call you that, from now on. Wow, sure, BEST When I greet Jamie, masaya pa siya, ngumingiti pero when it was my turn to say best, biglang n alungkot yung mukha niya. Are you ok? And now, shes crying. My bad. Sorry Alex. Pea ce tayo ha. Di ko naman sinasadya eh. Huy! stop that Jamie may rule tayo diba? dib a sabi ni Alex, walang malungkot na mukha dito kaya tahan na Gago kasi yang bestfrie nd mo eh Why? niloko ka ba niya? No he did not. In fact, he loved me more that I expe ted him to be Oh.. yun naman pala eh bat ka umiiyak jan? Iniwan niya kasi ako alam ng, ang layo ng pangarap ko sa relationhip namin? I even think of having childre n with Alex, laughing everyday with him every after stressful work, spending wee kends with him and our children. dating with him at the age of 50 somewhere aroun d the world. growing old with him. seeing our grandchildren achieve their dreams. t aking care of him, dying with him. Poor Jamie that sounds so heartbreaking.

Im sorry to hear that Jamie Its ok Im glad someone knew about my future plans but nately, wala ni isa ang matutupad Well, marami pa namang iba jan eh ooops, peace tayo dun best ah. I know, you also agree with me di ko na lang tatanungin kung agree k a rin sakin baka kasi sumagot ka pa, mahirap na. Oo, marami pang iba jan, pero iis a lang si Alex. Oh, how sweet. Grabe! Ano kayang pinakain ni Alex kay Jamie Ang swe et mo pala kay Alex no No, hes sweet, hes the sweetest, and Im gonna miss it. so muc non? Oo hindi nga lang halata sa mukha niya.. but he really is, nakakapanghinayang l ang no? Ang alen? kami masyado lang maiksi yung relationship namin it was the best dr am ever no itS not a dream aw yes, but sana dream na lang yun no? so that I can de ether to wake up or not, and if it is, Ill choose to sleep forever. Ow, thats deep. I can really feel Jamies pain with her words poor Jamie. Hes just the best thing tha t ever happened to my life. Hes the perfect prince, ours was the best love story unrevealed. It was the first time I heard Jamie talk about this kind of stuffs, s he sounds like the happiest princess now miserable because of the lost of her pr ince. The way she talks, masasabi kong walang oras na di siya pinasaya ni Alex, she sounds like the happiest girlfriend, the luckiest. It sounds like, their sto ry is perfect but gone not. when his prince charming left. It was a long chat with Jamie. I had fun listening to what she has to say, not even a part that it gone boring, every part was happy, exciting, every part was climax. It was indeed, p erfect, di ko lubos maiwasang isipin na errr I wish mine was yah whatever, never mi nd. Nakalimutan ko tuloy na nasa burial ako ng bestfriend ko feeling ko kasi nasa coffee shop ako na nakikipagchismisan sa long lost friend ko. Sunday, cemetery Its time we say goodbye oops, see you soon pala as Alex told us all in his last words, to Alex, our friend, brother, child, lover, angel, savior. I t sucks when someone dear to you leaves. Sucks. And as he told us everyone was we aring the most colourful outfits ever, and I sang during the message part. As us ual I got tons of claps standing ovation pa nga eh.

And Im his acting manager as of the moment, kaya, medyo napapadalas na din yug pagsasama namin.

Bat di sila nag-abot?! errrr! nakakafrustrate. Oh, si no yung kausap mo? tssss. Your look alike, your exact copy Sayang di ko nakita pero p kiramdam ko lang ah mas gwapo ako dun.

Siyempre mas gwapo yun kasi nagustuhan mo What a trying to say? eh ako nagustuhan mo ba ako? weird-random-outoftheblue question. ???? itams, di ka makasagot ibig sabihin di mo ako nagustuhan at ibig sabihin din, hin di ako kasing gwapo nun. What is he talking about?! Sobrang weird. Anyway, Im much more excited to see their championship game. I havent seen them play for real ka si eh just practices and thats it. But I think Im undecided if I should be excited to be Francos little nanny that day. Even if. Even if he promised me Nika wouldnt be there. Superwoman, One more thing wag mong dalhin yung bago mong syota ah, baka kasi mad istract lang ako, mahirap na. Salamat. Intayin kita ah. Tandaan mo: The game is for you. Superman. FYI. Francis is not my boyfriend. Hes just a friend. Ano na naman ba to? nililigaw an niya ba ako ulit? The game is for me? No its not, its for the legacy of the s chool and the pride of the whole student body. Madistract? Why would he? Hay nak o. Ewan ko sayo Franco Marion Mendoza. Friday, Baseball championship game As promised, I was there. I came there so ear ly wearing the v-neck shirt with superman logo on the center. I brought him a bo ttle of water, fresh from our water dispenser, and a baby towel, my red baby tow el, its special cause I bought it in this specialty store with superman stuffs i n it. I think I came just so early. Wala pa kasi akong nakikitang player eh. Eff . Masyado naman akong excited. So since, no ones here yet, so I decided to daydre am (its my favourite pass time).

*daydreams* On bat, Franco Mendoza GO FRANCOOOOOOO! sigaw naman nilang lahat. Before, he steps in to the batters plate. He looked at me. and shouted my name Rhia Margar ette Lao! I looked at him in return. This ones for you. he said that not like the no rmal way, he said that from afar, so basically, everyone heard it. WOHOOOOOOOOOO! react. I LOVE YOU RHIA! and then he bat it and it was a boom! homerun! *end of day dream* I LOVE YOU TOOOOOOOOOOOO FRANCO!!!! Huy! eff! sinigaw ko yun?! Ang dami ng ta o. as in! Sh*t! stupiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid! I love you more Everyone was starin g at me. Bwiset na daydream! Nadala ako. eff! Nakakahiya. sobra. Lahat na ng pla yers, from our school, from other universities, schoolmates, supporters ng ibang university, umpires, faculty, coaches, EVERYONE!. Hell. Alis na ako. No, you stay there and dont mind them That was Embarassing? no sweet nga eh, mas pagbubutihin ko g paglalaro, para sayo What Ever Umalis na siya sa harap ko at pumunta na siya sa fie d. I still cant get over, of course. That was the most embarrassing thing I engag ed myself into. Hindi tuloy ako nakapagconcentrate sa game. Halos di ko na maian gat yung mukha ko eh. Erfff! As usual, without me noticing it. They won the game AGAIN. As expected. Here comes the star player, whose name I mentioned a while ago. Rhia! he kissed me. ha?! Sorry, naexcite lang ako. Congrats. After I greeted him umalis na ako.

CHAPTER 40 almost

Francos POV Yun na siguro yung pinakamasayang araw ko simula ng naging miserable ito. Noon, araw-araw masaya, ngayon naman, araw-araw miserable. Amp. Pero kahit papano, masaya naman dahil sa nangyari kanina. Natamaan ko lang ng bola si Rhia tapos ganun na agad. Sana ganon na lang parati. Muntik na kami ni Francis dun ah, buti na lang umiwas siya agad. Ang hirap naman nitong ganito, bawat kilos kelan gan bantayan. Pano na kaya pag nalaman ni Rhia na magkapatid nga kami ni Francis? Dude, muntik na tayo dun ah.. Oo nga eh, mabutit napansin mo agad ako.. Oo nga.. siy nga pala, congrats salamat dude pano nga ba kayo umabot dun? Yun nga eh, kung alam ang edi sana tinanggihan ko na si Rhia, kaso sabi niya, surprise daw, ewan ko kun g anong surprise yung ibig sabihin niya Gusto niya siguro magkita tayo baka gusto ni yang makumpara tayo, ewan. Mukhang ganon nga. Napapadalas na din yung pagkukwento niy a sayo pero di na tulad ng dati yung mga kwento niya yung pagkapilay niya, yung mga ganon Napapadalas na din ang pagsasama nila. Nahawa na ata si Francis kay Rhia, mah ilig ng lumabas ngayon. Noon lang, halos kaladkarin na lang siya ni mommy para l umabas at makipagsocialize, ganun. Ngayon, halos di ko na makita sa bahay. Nagig ing close na si superwoman at spiderman, pano na si superman? Aaah, ganon ba.. Oo eh ude, si nika? Wala akong pakealam dun, wag siyang mag-alala, sinusulit ko na lang naman yung huling araw ng buhay ko, dahil malapit-lapit na din akong mapasalupa a mp. magpapakasal ba talaga ako dun? Hayop! Pasensya na talaga jan dude ah Wala eh, w ala na akong magagawa Si rhia alam mo ok siya siyempre naman. teka, wag mong sabihin ? o_O siyempre. bakit dude? Gusto ko na ata siya eh Aaaah, niligawan mo na ba?

Di ko kaya dude Aaah Tama ba yung narinig ko? Gusto na ni Francis si Rhia? Di ko main tindihan yung naramdaman ko nung sinabi niya yun, ewan, selos? konting galit? gu lat? inggit? lungkot? helpless? Hirap naman nito! Susuko na ata ako eh! Pero wala eh, wala na ata akong magagawa.

Francis POV Tama ba yung sinabi ko? Tama ba na sinabi ko sa harap ni Franco? Hind i. Mali ata yun eh. Pero sa totoo lang, oo, nagugustuhan ko na si Rhia, mahirap na hindi magsutuhan ang isang tulad niya, lahat na nasa kanya. At malaki an guta ng na loob ko sa kanya, kung di dahil sa kanya di ako magbabago for good. *kriii iiiiiiiiiing* Hey Francis! labas tayo bukas Ha? ah eh Sige na please, samahan mo ako agmall, its been a while already.. like a week and few days pero rhi No more buts see you! *end of call* Isang-isa pa yan pag siya na ang humingi ng pabor, ang hirap na tanggihan. Ang kulit niya, pero isa yunsa best asset niya, yung kakulitan niyan g di matatawaran. Sa tuwing nag-aaya siyang lumabas, natutuwa ako. Masaya kasi s iyang kasama, minsannga noon nung rhia iyakin pa siya, ipinagdarasal ko na sana ma lungkot na naman siya, para to the rescue na naman ako at mapasaya ko na naman s iya. Dating gawi pa rin kami ni Rhi shopping (siya lang), kain, sine, stroll. Yun g nagbago lang lately yung pinagtitinginan na kami. Hay nako, nakakapanibago, si Rhia sanay na sanay na, eh ako? Pinagdrive ko na siya pauwi Hoy Ano? Ikaw lalake ka, g daya mo talaga no halo alam mo na lahat ng details tungkol sakin, tapos ako, ni konting personal details, waley talaga youre so unfair. Bakit ba? wala naman akong s inasabing, sabihin mo lahat ng details tungkol sa buhay mo eh, ikaw lang yung ma daldal jan UNFAIR! Life is unfair, we all know that

Mean! Sige mayisheshare ako sayo Oh my! ano yun? Kasi dapat mysterious ka eh

Rhias POV Mysterious, Franco? ikaw ba yan? Errrr! Why are they so the same?! Why? ! I know.. sinabi na din ni Franco sakin yan Oh alam mo naman pala eh, bat di mo ina pply? Di ko kaya eh. anyway, ano na yung isheshare mo? puso ko? WTF?! cheesy much, se iously?! cheese corn totoo whatever K. I like you K. Seriously Seriously? Wew. That wasnt a good joke, that was sort of awkward. Wew, good. Di naman kita gust o eh Mahal na kasi kita Ok, joke again. Joke? Hindi Tigilan mo nga ako *breaks* stop the car?! sabi mo eh Drive again

No look at me.. Look this is so not for real, I know, isang malaking joke na naman it o, ni Francis. I never felt this way before I never felt so appreciated and loved b ut when you came, everything changed. You dont know what youre saying Alam ko naiint ihan ko lahat ng sinasabi ng puso ko if you give me the chance Francis stop. Hindi ak si supermanhindi ako hero, pero kaya pa rin kitang protektahan, hindi kita lolok ohin, hindi kita sasaktan if you give me the chance Rhi If I give you the chance, pa rang Hinayaan ko na rin na masaktan ulit yung puso ko No I promise you Lets stop th ancis. wag na natin pag-usapan to Rhi.. Stop. Tumigil naman siya sa pagsasalita, And continued driving with a disappointed face. Yah, whatever. Magkamukha sila ni Fr anco, oo, magkaugali, oo, lahat pareho, oo. Pero, hindi, I cant love him back, if I do, parang minahal ko na din ulit si Franco at Hinayaan na masaktan ulit ako. Hindi mahirap magustuhan si Francis. in fact hes such an ideal guy, but no I just cant Like I said, Im not ready yet, and I dont think I will ever be. Not to Franco, not to Francis, not to anyone else. At first yes probably because of the urge to forget Franco yes, I liked him, I almost fell for Francis, almost loved him. But then I realized, nafeel ko lang yun kasi I need some aid and I feel sorry for mys elf, its as if I compensated by frustration, my needs to Francis, who did nothin g but make me feel appreciated and secured. Masaya na ako na magkaibigan lang ka mi. No commitments, no heartaches. Away from bad things. But the fact that he pr omsed me, he wont hurt me like Franco did, he wont fool me like Franco did, doesnt make things lighter. Every words appeal to be promising, no doubt, it will easil y be broken. To be honest, since Francos uncivilized-crap deed, I find no reason to trust anybody. Now, Im afraid to give someone my trust, cause I know, itll end being wasted. So why trust?

CHAPTER 41 revealed

From: Francis Mario Mendoza Hey Rhi pasensya na sa nasabi ko kagabi. I didnt mean it like that. Lets just forget last night, pwede ba yun? Friends?

Im glad that he understands, thats one of the best thing about Francis, he knows h ow to understand, he knows where to place himself. Thats the best option so far, forget last night, and be friends again with Francis. *kriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing* May utos ako sayo hes the MOST courteous brother ever! -_- Dont you know how to say or hello first before saying something that sounds so demanding? Hi. GOOD!! Birthday na ng girlfriend ko at future sister-in law mo bukas OOMG! Youre getting married?! FUNNY! lul!!!!!!! hindi pa nga kami nagkikiss eh poor Gab. LOL much? Boo-huwhuw!

How clich, ang baduuuuy talaga ni Gab, foreve r, and thats how its gonna be. I guess? San ko naman to dadalhin? Francis POV

Amp. Bigo naman ako dun. Sana di ko na lang sinabi, akala ko kasi, ok lang din k ay Rhi nakalimutan ko tuloy kung gaano niya kamahal si Franco, kahit di niya sabi hin, alam kong ayaw niya, dahil si Franco pa rin ang gusto niya. Masama pa kaya ang loob niya sakin? Siguro nga mali yung sinabi ko, dapat makontento na lang ako na ganito lang kami, masayang magkaibigan. Supporter sa love story nila ni Fran co. Tagapakinig sa kanya, tagapasaya niya. Naisip ko din, mali yun kasi, parang trinaydor ko na rin si Franco, alam kong masasaktan yun pag nalaman niyang more t han friends na kami ni Rhi. Ang hirap naman nito. Mahal ko nga, pero di naman pwe de. Francis May kailangan ka? Wala naman, gusto ko lang malaman kung kamusta na si Rh a Ah, siya? ano bang sasabihin ko nito mp, bahala na nga.

Oo naman dude di ko gagawin yun, hanggang magkaibigan na la ng talaga kami ni Rhia na LANG. Maraming salamat dude ah. sguro kung di mo pinagbig yan yung pabor ko, mas mahihirapan ako sa sitwasyon ko ngayon. Wala yun dude, mas malaki naman yung ginawang pabor mo sa amin eh. Oo nga naman, buong buhay niya is asakripisyo niya sa ngalan ng pamilya namin. Tara na nga. hinihintay na tayo ni At Cheska sa labas Yun yun eh! Ang hirap ng sitwasyong ganito, magmamahal na nga lan g kayo, isang babae pa. Ag mahirap pa, nauna siya, ikaw naman, taga-salo lang, m inahal mo yung babae ng di mo namamalayan, isang araw, magigising ka na lang, na hanap-hanap mo na siya gustung-gusto mo na siya makasama habang-buhay, pero, lah at ay panaginip lang, at ang totoo, hanggang panaginip

AM I THAT WORST TO EXPERIENCE ALL OF THIS? WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE ALL OF THIS? I dont know what to say anymore, I dont even see somethin g worth appreciating for all of these miseries. I cant understand everything thats happening to me. All this time I was again the clueless victim. I let myself be stupid and be fooled by falling unto those convincing deeds. They are nothing b ut craps! To be happy is a mistake, you just woke up one day, and the next thing you knew, everythings gone, worst, everythings never real when you assumed its ex isting. I quit.

CHAPTER 42 18th

2 months after. A few more days, and itll be my special and most awaited day. The past few weeks, Ive been trying to manage my time wisely to see if everythings ok and ready for my fashion debut. Its the fashion show that Im most excited about, n ot the debut which will be held after the fashion show. Actually, I wasnt really in favour of the whole debut thing, it was moms she convinced me to, cause she reall y wants to throw off a party specially organized by her. Everythings set for my f ashion show, models-clear, hair and makeup-clear, 18 looks-clear, fashion enthus iasts (visitors/audience)-clear, venue-clear. Im excited to see how my efforts wa lk the runway, I organized everything, from the looks, models, make-up, and venu e. The hardest part of everything was sending the invitations to the actors and actresses of the movie industry and some famous fashion designers. I sent it per sonally; it was tough getting a schedule to talk to them personally and much tou gher convincing them to come. Luckily, 95% of those whom I personally invited co nfirmed their attendance. There are about, 500 expected audience. Wow, thats a lo t of pressure, but then again, Im just excited to show what this young girl can d o. Who knows? Since I knew the ugly truth, both of them didnt show up. Francos no longer going to school, but I dont know if he already dropped from the university . Francis never heard from him also. Its a good thing I have this fashion debut to w ork on and spend all of my time in to. It enabled me to forget about how gloomy my life was. The cotillion dance was choreographed by Jamie. Shes one of those wh o contributed a LOT to this event. Shes part of the dance too, as well as Kyri wi th Mawee and Joan with Paolo. Though theyre Francos cousins, I never had hard feel ings with them, they didnt harm me anyway, same goes with Ate Cheska who helped m e in the financial decisions of the fashion show. My escort and last dance will be no other than, my best (LOL) brother who did nothing but watched me cram and panic. Thanks a lot GAB. Sarcastically, youre the best. . This day is magic no? Ha? ? may magician ba darating? Joke ba yan? Seriously not why magic? Hello, are your ey even open dude? Of course see oh widely open wheres the magic? Errr! goodness, bat naging on top of the class? What she means dude. today is like magic, kasi everyones look is so classic, lahat nagtransform, gets mo na? Aaaah. Ano bang nangyayari sayo?

Wala C.R na nga muna tayo, I want to retouch, wanna come? No thanks *now playing, mak ta kang muli* Whys everyone clearing the dance floor? Hmm, siguro nga may magic in teresting. It was all I wanted when I first saw you, I knew I d miss it when I co uldn t see you, It all started because I m with you Why did they just say that in chorus while looking at me????? It was all I wanted when I first saw you, I knew Id miss it when I couldnt see you, it all started because Im with you Rhia Will you ance with me? Wake up honey, Happy 18th birthday. Oh! yes thanks mom! thanks! ! Thanks also for waking me up! Go get ready I know youve got tons of stuffs to do y ou young workaholic. Thanks again mom Young workaholic. No, Im not! Si Gab lang ang workaholic, and hell always be, no more no less. Oh yes! Todays the day! My adrena line is so pumped up already. gosh I want to see everything work already. Unfortu nately, that was most likely NOT the best last dream as a seventeen year old, NO T AT ALL. I am the final look. ^^ Ill be wearing the gown handsewn by me. Everywh ere I look, go, enter Happy Birthday is the most uttered word. Thanks people. I app reciate all your greetings so much. But as of the moment, the only thing that ma tters to me is the outcome of my efforts I am positive that all will be well, for I know I gave my best shot in every step unto the sewing machine. I can almost see everyone from the backstage, the seats are 93% full, which is a positive res pond to all my invitations and sales talk. Yay! Everythings set the models look so good, their aint any other ordinary-begginers they are those who walk on fashion week which made me so positive about the whole output of the show. In 3, 2,1.

And my special day was indeed, the best day of my life. Lahat ng pinaghirapan at pinagdaanan ko, dun nabayaran, in fact, sobra pa nga eh. It was a perfect day. With Francos surprise appearance, which really didnt work well as a surprise for m e, it was tolerable. Wala na akong nararadaman para sa kanya, no pain, no hearta ches, no grudge, no love, no to everything. When he talked to me, I heard everyt hing but felt nothing. This is the last time youll ever see me. Oh, then great. B eing away from him also means, being away from harm and pain.

Franc o Mendoza and I Nika Nishima is already engaged cheers! Nika. Thats it. Wow, Congrat ulations! Ooops, uhmm, dude Excuse me for a while

And here goes this feeling again. Pain. And there I was again, crying. And my he art was crushed again, from pieces to dust Ok na naman ako ah! Why let this feeli ng come out again?! Im sorry Rhi Youre here again, utos na naman ba to ng kapatid mo? what?! is this some kind of a plan again? tell me! para ngayon pa lang, alam ko na kung pano ko kayo sasakyan! Hindi Rhi pumunta lang ako dito para magpaliwanag. Mag aliwanag?! para saan pa? that was long time ago, I dont need all your explanation s, I dont need to feel how STUPID I was for believing all of your lies! Hindi yan al am ko namang di mo ako, kami, mapapatawad sa ginawa namin. may gusto lang akong s abihin sayo, please, makinig ka lang. these may change everything Rhi please do you e ven deserve a talk with me? I dont think so. Ill prove you I do, if you just listen to me Look, lahat ng pagsisinungaling, pagpapanggap, panloloko alam mo na, pero, h indi mo pa alam kung bakit. Why?! do I even need to know How much youve been abusin g my weakness?! Rhia, hindi! Makinig ka muna,please! Mahal na mahal ka talaga ni Fra nco, he changed a lot for you alam mo bang he was the BAD guy before? suwail na a nak, walang kwentang kapati, lahat na! but the moment, you entered his life, eve rything changed. I dont need to hear his transformation you changed the way he looks at things, ganon ka niya kamahal. Tang ina naman oh! mahal niya pala ako, bat niya g inawa sakin to?! Listen first siguro nga nasaktan ka niya pero, hindi niya kailanman ginusto yun, kaya nga niya pnagawa sa akin ang lahat ng nangyari noon, para kahi t papano di ka na masyado maging malungkot. And guess what?! It was the dumbest pla n ever! It made things even worst! Oo, siguro nga ganon din, pero, wala sa plano yu ng saktan ka namin pareho. Bullshit! Rhia, Franco was choiceless And so he chose to b eak my heart? dump me?! He didnt mean it. Oh come on! Nika is desperate. I dont her! I dont care about them! Franco was choiceless

So youre saying, your brother is the hero because he saves the lives of the desper ates? No. Rhi sana paniwalaan mo tong sasabihin ko, sana wag mong isipin na isa itong malaking excuse. Wow! Ang galing mo manghula, ganon mo na ba talaga ako kakilala? Rhi our business family business went black, mawawala na lahat ng pinaghirapan ng an gkan namin, at isa lang ang paraan para masalba eto, isang-isa lang, isang salit a, isang buhay. yun si Franco, Nikas family is our business partner, sila lang nag makaktulong sa amin, pumayag sila sa isang condition, pakakasalan daw ni Fanco s i Nika. WHAT?! oo Rhi naging hero lang naman si Franco, sinalba niya kami at lahat ng nagtatrabaho sa kompanya. Sinakripisyo niya ang buong buhay niya. at naging miserab le na ito. pati ang babaeng pinakamamahal niya, naiwan niya sa ere Tinanong ko kung bakit di nila sinabi ang lahat sa akin sa simula pa lang. And the reason was so dumb, ayaw daw ni Franco malaman ko ang lahat dahil ayaw niyang mas masaktan ak o. Langya naman yan oh! Does he even know how much Ive been dying to know why eve rything happened? Why in a blink of an eye, our once perfect relationship vanish ed like the wind? Ayaw niya na mas masaktan ako?! What he did was more the painf ul. Kung noon niya lang sana sinabi ang dahilan kung bakit nangyari ang lahat ng to, I could have stayed away from him long time ago, I could have stopped from w andering why we ended up like this, I could have stopped feeling so sorry for my self, I could have stopped hoping to brink what we once have, I could have stop ped my heart from bleeding! But now. I understand him, I feel sorry for him, I fe el sorry for myself. I guess, this is the end of everything about us. Dude duuuuuuuu uuuude Dude! tinatawag ka ni prof! YES PROF?! eff, wasnt able to hear the discussion h no. Joke lang dude! eff you!!!! lagot ako nito! Yes Ms. Lao? something wrong? quest ions? Uhmm None? Actually sir, there is What? What will you do if things hasnt ou still can do something, but you choose to stay idle? Thats not part of our discu ssion Ms. Lao

Im sorry prof But I can answer that if things hasnt end yet and you know you still ca do something it will be the dumbest idea to stay idle. Even if its the only way to let go? letting go doesnt mean ending things, letting go sometimes means seeing if something is still worth holding on, worth fighting for what if its already too late? Ms. Lao, is this all about Mr. Mendoza? Uhmm, yes prof If you dont do somethin et, it is. Class dismissed Ms. Lao Yes prof? Ano pang ginagawa mo diyan, go! Go omething! Thanks Prof! Mahal ko pa si Franco! I still love him, I still want him ne ar me! I still can do something, I will fight for this love even if theres a litt le left to fight for. Even if hell never fight back. Even if hell not do the same. Nagmadali akong pumunta sa bahay nila. I know hes just there. Pagdating ko gates a re closed. Alam kong andito lang si Franco, I know hes just here, yung ang sinasa bi ng puso ko. And there I was standing in front of their house, as the rain alw ays do. bumuhos na naman ito kasabay ng pag-iyak ng puso ko. Franco! I know youre t here alam ko dahil yun yung sinasabi ng puso ko, its ok if you dont show up, its ok if you wont fight back, gusto ko lang marinig mo lahat ng gusto kong sabihin! I ha ted you the moment I saw you in my dreams, you are the reason why I chose not to sleep because your ego is so annoying and I cant handle it! When I first saw you, I cant believe you were the guy I was crazy for, youre undeniably, mayabang! papa nsin! annoying! assuming! korny! But the moment I knew you, everything changed, yo u were the guy I was looking for, I soon realized, mahal na kita! You made me real ize how ones imperfection makes him perfect just the way he is, just the way you are! You became my hero, and I became your favorite victim, sometimes I choose to fall cause I know youll come rescuing me. Youre the perfect hero and youll always b e

Even if its wrong to say I still love you, even if its too late to say it, Ill say i t, cause I still do, and I dont know if you still as well, but I want you to know , how much you changed me how much you make me happy. Even if it is goodbye. I want you to know. I will always be your superwoman, you will always be my superman, a nd if theres one thing I want to do for the rest of my life. it will be flying for ever with you. And that kiss in the rain. it may not happen again. but it will forev er be in my heart

CHAPTER 44 5 years after

After 5 years. Ive been working with Margareth for already a year and its been so f ar, the greatest. Ive been designing clothes for many people, there are those who just discovered me on the papers and Jakes acknowledgement everytime he wears my clothes her little sister also made me popular, and others are the connections o f my pleased clients. And yes, we already graduated college. And dami ng nangyar i sa tatlong taon na yan, Ive been successful enough, contented with what I have, happy with everything I almost had everything except for a lifetime partner. Oh w ell, since that confession under the rain which turned out to be a self-talk und er the rain, I never heard from Franco, like he said indeed, it was the last time I saw him. Things didnt change a lot so far especially with my dudes. Their relat ionship with their boyfriends are getting stronger and stronger, in fact Kyri an d Mawee are already engaged, theyre getting married at the end of the year and Im in charge of everything, from her wedding dress to the whole outcome of the big wedding. On the other hand, Joan and Harvey are already married. 1 year married. Kewl right? Guess its all because of Franco and I back when we were still the hap py couple. Jamie is still single. Guess, she likes it being single forever, I do nt know. Ganon siguro ka irreplaceable si Alex. Best, wherever you are Im so proud o f you for being the best boyfriend you can be. Francis is also the famous man mo del in the country, my plan worked well. And the thing with Francis being honest with everything. yes, were still friends, in fact, I guess, hes been my bestfriend for almost 5 years already. Friends lang talaga, no more no less. And with me. a nd my long lost hero things didnt also change, ako pa rin si superwoman, mhal ko p a rin si superman. I still love Franco I always do. Now Im working on to put up my new store in Rome. I forgot to share that I was able to study fashion designing in Paris for a year, but I decided not to finish the whole four years. the most important thing is I already had the formal education about the thing I really lov e. I also believe I dont need to spend more time in schooling, as long as love wh at Im doing and Im with my creative ego, all will be well. Im actually in Rome at the moment, in this fountain of love, self-meditating, actually off to get some inspiration with Baby Franco. His been so loyal to me the past years, working ef ficiently like it never gone old. Thanks Franco for this very special gift. While I was taking pictures. I hear something familiar. someone reading my favorite sta tement in a book, Looking for Alaska.

CHAPTER 45 when in rome

Just like that. From a hudred miles an hour to asleep in a nanosecond. I wanted s o badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sle ep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together, in t he most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boy friend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous an I was hopelessly boring and she w as endlessly fascinating. I turned my back. slowly walking to see whos reading it a t the same time, uttering the rest of the statement. So I walked back to my room a nd collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzl e and she was hurricane. R-F-h-r-i-n-a-co Its Franco! I hugged him so tight as soon as I recognized him and he did as well! What are you doing here? You first! Pshhh, yo u first! Nagbebrath in and out. nagpapahinga ikaw? Nagpapakabusy. working on soomethi g Di ka pa rin nagbabago, hanggang ngayon Yes, workaholic pa rin ako Whys that? I e happy. and forget about everything.. Anyway, Oh my God, how are you? Ok na lang. yu pa rin miserable Ikaw talaga. I cant believe it weve finally seen in each other, ama ing no? Oo nga eh. parang may gusting sabihin si destiny Right, anyway, may kasama ka ba? Wala, mag-isa lang ako ikaw? As usual. Im alone also. Mind if I come with you? go! Kismet? Destiny? Fate? I dont know what youre currently up to but thanks in adva nce! Francos POV Tama ata yung nasa movie na when in rome tama ata na dito talaga nangya yari lahat ng magic. Di ko akalain makikita ko pa si Rhia, not in the most perfe ct place possible.

Ano na naman kaya ang gusting ipahiwatig ng pagkikita ni superman at superwoman ng di sinasadya sa ere? All throughout the years, hinding hindi ko pa rin makali mutan kung gaano ko kamahal si Rhia. Walang araw na di ko inisip, kung nasan na siya kug anong ginagawa niya, kung masaya ba siya, kung kamusta na siya, kung may bago a ba siyang mahal. Kung may pumalit na ba sa role ni superman. Kung may ba go na ba siyang superman. I wanted so badly to get out from the house and kiss h er under the rain. Oo, narinig ko lahat ng sinabi niya halos binabagabag nga ako ng sobrang panghihinayang kung bakit di ako lumabas at nagpakita sa kanya. Pero, minsan naiisip ko na rin na tama lang ang ginawa ko naisip ko kasi, useless lang pag lumabas ako at sabihin ko sa kanya na mahal na mahal ko din siya, eh alam k o naman na sa banding huli di pa rin pwede at masasaktan ko lang siya. Ayoko na s iyang pahirapan pa, ayokong magsalita na para bang binibigyan ko siya ng pag-asa , well in fact, alam kong wala ding patutunguhan ang lahat, pag ginawa ko yun, d i lang isip ko ang sasabog, pati puso ko madudurog. Siguro nga, tama na din na y un ang ginawa ko. kita mo naman, masaya na si Rhia ngayon, habang ako naman, eto pa rin, miserable. Hinding-hindi na ata magbabago kailanman ang direksyon ng buh ay ko. Shes the perfect girl, and Im too imperfect for her. At ngayon na nakita ko siya, wala akong gusting gawin kundi sulitin ang bawat minuto sa piling niya, k ung may isa man akong ambisyon sa buhay yun ay makagawa g time machine. para sa m ga panahong tulad nito. matigil ko ang oras at habambuhay kong makapiling ang bab aeng pinakamamahal ko. Sobrang natuwa ako ng makita ko siya. hindi ko rin inaasah an na isang parte lang pala ng libro ang magtatagpo sa amin. Gustung-gusto ko si yang yakapin hanggat sa huling paghinga ko ayoko ng matapos ang araw nato. Ayoko ng magising sa isang napakagandang panaginip tulad nito. Namiss kita alam mo ba? Hind i eh isa lang ang alam ko Ano yun? Mas namiss kita at alam kong di mo alam yun Oo ko rin nahulaan yun. kamusta ka na? may bago na ba? Bagong ano? Superman Youre the superman I know, you know that. and no one no one can ever replace your place in my heart. Natahimik ako bigla. Di ko alam kung anong sasabihin ko. Hindi ako kara pat-dapat sa babaeng mahal ako at mahal ko pero nagawa kong saktan, mali eh, mal ing-mali. Rhia. Im really sorry about everything Tssss, Ano ba? Magkikita na lang tay o in this perfect place, tapos yan lang ang sasabihin mo? Pasensya Strike 2 Mr. Chip s

Naalala mo pa? Of course, I will never forget that. never forgot everything actually . Ako din eh cookie monster. Si Nika. kamusta na kayo? Ganon pa rin eh kailanman d laga siya natutunan magustuhan teka nga pwede bang wag nating pag-usapan yan. mag-e njoy na lang tayo pwede? Right, lets make the most out of this day! Hinawakan ko ang kamay niya. Ive been longing for this for so long. Matagal kong hiniling na sana mabigyan ako ng isa pang pagkakataon na hawakan ang kamay niya, at lumipad ulit kami tula ng dati,at ngayon, natupad na ang lahat ng hiling ko. Reward ko na si guro to sa sobrang pagsasakripisyo at paghihirap na dinadaanan ko at patuloy kon g pagdadaanan sa mga araw na natitira sa buhay ko. Nag-ikot ikot kami ni Rhia sa Rome. pareho kaming hindi alam ang lugar. naglalakad lang kami pumupunta kung san namin gusting pumunta hinahayaan lang namin ang hangin na dalhin kami kung saan-s aan. Wala na akong pakealam kung mawala kami ok nga yun eh. kahit isang dekada pa kaming matrap sa lugar na hindi namin alam. basta makasama ko lang siya ng mataga l. Walang minuto na di ko naramdaman na ako na ang pinakamasayang lalaki sa buon g mundo sa piling ni Rhia. Para bang nastuck ka sa disyerto wala kang mainom na tu big at may biglang dumating at nagalok sa iyo ng maiinom. Tapos sobra mong saya. m uli kang nabuhay, nawala lahat ng lungkot at pangungulila, ganon na ganon ang nara mdaman ko ng makita ko si Rhia. I wish this day wont end. Ha?

Will you say that again please? SUPERWOMAN, WILL YOU MA RY ME? WILL YOU FLY WITH ME FOREVER? YES! Rhias POV And I wasnt dreaming. Everything is real. Ive been waiting for this to co me for so long. One day I woke up from a bad dream, I could not do anything but live my life with all the heartaches in my bag, I did that everyday until I woke up today. and realized I just had the best dream after all those nightmares.
