I always stare at you from afar a beauty gliding in ice, ever since I first placed my eyes on you I ve been captivated by your grace and the way you move inside that rink of ice and how everything else seems to come to a stop whenever you slide and spin, what is it that you chase after inside that head of yours? And who is it that your eyes seem to see that no one else could? It started while I was walking by the skating rink in the mall, there she was gliding an angelic face yet eyes burning with desire and compared to the others she seemed to be effortlessly moving about. A snow queen, I sat and watched her practice it felt like I am being drawn into her world like there s no one else around. Without me realizing it s been hours that I ve been sitting there, as I look at my watch I realize I m late for an appointment, I hurriedly headed towards the place I was supposed to meet my uncle. I arrived and see my uncle at the far end table of the café, he waves at me and I walk towards him. We order and he tells me that we re waiting for someone else, a few talks, desserts and a cup of coffee. The person that we were waiting for still hasn t come, I excuse myself and head to the men s room. I wonder if that girl is still practicing. I return to the table surprised to see the very girl I was watching and thinking of is right there sitting, talking to my uncle, could she actually be the one we re waiting for? I politely ask if I can join in and my uncle introduces us to each other.Her name is Beatrice Hill, and it seems that we were attending the same college but never came across each other, it was quite the surprise. I never was able to say a word while the two of them were talking, I could only listen to her sweet voice and all the things she is saying. How I wish it was me that she was talking to and smiling at.Over an hour passed and their conversation was done, we all left the café and we gave her a ride to her house. In the car we were both seated at the back seat, it was sort of an awkward moment. I didn t know how to open up a conversation with her, I looked at her and was surprised that she was also looking at me. She suddenly said that she remembers me and that we had a class together when we were just freshmen. Beatrice: Di ba classmate kita before sa trigo? Paul: Cigurado ka? Bakit parang hindi kita maalala? Beatrice: Panu mo naman ako maaalala ehh, once a week ka lang kung pumasok. Paul: Teka, binabantayan mo ba kung kelan ako napasok? Beatrice: Parang ganon, kasi whenever you re around buhay ang class. It was funny how she would remember something like that, and well I guess the only reason why class would be fun when I m around is because I m always trying to make my friends laugh and pull out a few jokes with the prof since we re drinking buddies. Amazing how she could still remember it when it was a couple of years past.
Beatrice: Sorry hindi kita agad nakilala, your hair kasi mahaba na siya. Paul: Well ganon lang talaga, ako din naman hindi din kita agad natandaan. Beatrice: Pero alam mo mas bagay sayo yung short hair mo before. We just talked about the past throughout the entire ride to her house, the funniest things that happened, awkward moments during class, disappointments, nothing special. We just reminisced about that class back when we were just freshmen and now only a couple of months left and we ll be graduating. It was fun talking about the past with her and well it was great just chatting with her, hopefully we could do it again. When we got to her house and as soon as she got off she said that we should hang out since it was nice talking to me, she even gave me her phone number. On the way home I was staring at her number on my phonebook. What to do? Send her a message? Call her? Do nothing? Thoughts of what to do struggled in my mind even when we got home I kept on staring at her number wondering what I should do. I wanted to send her a message but what if she doesn t reply? Give her a call, what if she s busy? I didn t know what to do so I just placed my phone on my desk and took a shower. After my shower I went down to grab something to eat, I looked at the fridge but before I opened it I saw a post it from my mom asking me to buy the groceries. I grabbed my hoody then went to the grocery I was almost there when I realized I left my phone on my desk, doesn t matter I rarely get any messages or calls anyway.I got to the supermarket and bumped into my friend Sarah she s also buying groceries so we decided to stick together. We were chatting and telling jokes while picking out stuff sand something great happened. Over at the frozen goods section I saw Beatrice, I wanted to say hi and maybe start a small conversation but I held back and just pretended I didn t notice her and went on shopping with Sarah but as I was about to walk back to her, she suddenly calls Beatrice. It seems they were high school buddies. Sarah: Uy! Bea! How are you na? Beatrice: Uy! Sheng! Eto ayos lang naman. Ikaw? Sarah: Lukaret still hahah. Let me introduce you pala kay Pao. Beatrice: Magkakilala na kaya kami ni Pao. Di ba Pao? Paul: Yup. My uncle introduced us kanina. Beatrice: Bakit nga pala hindi ka nagtext man lang knina? Sarah: Naku! Yan si Pao magte2xt? It would be a miracle Bea. Beatrice: Bakit naman? Sarah: Tell you about it nalang later. Let s go to the coffee shop near here, we have tons to talk about and catching up to do. Pao una na kame sa cashier ha. Paul: Cge. Madami pa ko kailangan bilihin. Kita kits nalang. Sarah: Cge. Bye bye. Beatrice: Magtext ka later ha. Wait ko text mo.
I continue on shopping, but I was puzzled as to why she would be waiting for me to text her? And what could it be that she and Sarah talk about.My head was going crazy so I just focused on shopping. After I finished I decided to go home. On the way I passed the coffee shop they went to and saw them talking, I was really curious as to what it was that they were talking about. When I got home I placed all the stuff I bought to where they should be. I cooked dinner and ate then left some for mom on the table, after cleaning the kitchen I headed to my room to do some assignments and my paper that s due by the end of the week. I fell asleep halfway of doing my paper work, when I woke up its already 5 am, I need to fix breakfast for me and mom, as I get up I look at my phone and remembered that Beatrice was waiting for me to text her. Good morning. Sorry ngaun lang nakapagtext, See you in school. After sending that short message I went down and made breakfast then woke mom up to eat. While eating she said that she d be out of town for a couple of days, she said I should go out with some friends instead of just staying inside all the time. I just said I can t since I m busy with a lot of school work. After breakfast I took a shower and prepared myself for class. As soon as I was about to go out of the house I receive a text from Beatrice. What time start nang class mo? Sabay na tayo pumasok. Should I reply? Or should I just pretend that I m on my way and was too busy to notice that she had texted me? Now I didn t think I would reply but something made me want to reply and come to school together with her, so I replied and said I d pick her up at her house. I arrive at her house to see her waiting for me at their gate with her mom. Paul: Good morning po Mrs. Hill. I m here to pick Beatrice up po. I m Paul Galvez po. Mrs. Hill: Nice to meet you Paul. Ingat kayo ha. Take care of Bea. Paul: Opo Mrs. Hill. Beatrice: Grabe ha. Tagal ko naghintay ng text mo. Paul: Sorry Beatrice, Nakatulog kasi ako while doing my school paper. Beatrice: Ok lang. Bea na lang. How was your sleep naman? Paul: Ok lang. Sa desk ko na ako nakatulog. She really is quite the chatter box, telling me all sorts of stuffs that she did, what she likes doing, her favorites, the classes she s taking but she never mentioned anything about ice skating which I found weird, so I asked her about it. Beatrice: Ahh my older sister kasi wanted to become a professional ice skater pero sadly she had an accident at ngayon hindi na siya pwede mag-skate. Kaya I learned to skate for her and hopefully make her dream come true. Paul: How about your dream? Ano ba gusto mo gawin? Beatrice: I want to dance. Ballet. Gusto ko maging famous ballerina someday.
Paul: Why not pursue your dream? Beatrice: Kasalanan ko kasi kung bakit hindi na makapag-skate pa si ate, kaya I m doing this for her. I was surprised to hear her say that and the look on her face was so down that I didn t know what to say to her to ease the pain that she s feeling. I know one way to make her laugh though, I remember her saying it to me yesterday the one moment she laughed so hard before. I farted and well it was effective it made her laugh and she was making fun of me and teasing. Seeing her happy face makes me feel funny inside like I m getting tingly from the inside. When we got to the school we parted ways since she had a different class. Getting to class I was too early and nobody else was in the room so I sat and slept. I was woken up by an object hitting me lightly on the head it was our prof and she tells me that our class would start soon so I should wake up and get ready. It was my usual day, classes, eating lunch, then classes again, after my last class I decided to head to the mall to chill for a bit before going home. Once I got to the mall I headed to the ice skating rink to see if she s already there, but she wasn t so I sent her a text message asking her if she still had class and she replied telling me that her classes don t end till 6 o clock. I wonder if she would practice today? Well she probably will. While walking around I was thinking of what she said earlier about her sister and ice skating, if I were to base things in what she said she probably doesn t like ice skating but if I were to base it on how she looked on the ice it surely seems that she is in love with the sport or is she really driven by guilt. My phone rings but before I answer the call I check to see who s calling first and it was her. I answered the call and she asked where I was, so I told her I was at the mall just chilling out before going home, she asked if I wanted to watch her practice. My answer was a definite yes, I couldn t pass up the chance to watch her since she s fun to watch. She told me to wait for her at the rink and if I could, I should bring a cup of hot choco for her. I went to the café and there was this really thin lady just staring at the window while drinking a cup of coffee probably, but what struck me about her is that she resembles Bea, they sort of look alike. I ignored it for it might just be a coincidence and headed to the rink to wait for Bea. It took her a while to arrive, the hot choco was a little cold. Bea: Sorry. Yung prof namin late na nagpalabas. Paul: Ok lang, no need to apologize. Here s your hot choco. Bea:Wow mainit pa huh. Hahah. Paul: Well kung napaaga ka mainit pa talaga sana yan. Hahah. We talked while she was finishing her drink, well she was asking a lot of things, like what I did in class, how did my classes go, did I eat lunch, what I did here in the mall. She apologized a lot for asking too many things she just said that she wants to know everything about me. I was surprised when she said that so I asked her why she wants to know. Bea: I like the way you looked at me kasi that time when I was practicing. Paul: You saw me? Bea: Para saan pa ang mga mgagandang eyes ko kung hindi ko mapapansin na there s someone looking at me di ba?
I couldn t say a thing, all I could do was smile at her. After our conversation she started warming up and after a couple of minutes she had changed into that beautiful snow queen once again. I was once more under her spell but there was something different now, each time she passes me she would smile at me sometimes wink, or wave. A few hours passed and I noticed the lady back at the café, the one who looked like Bea pass by, I heard Bea calling for someone. Bea: Ate! The lady then approaches and smiles at her, a warm and gentle smile they seem to be talking, for a couple of minutes and Bea was laughing so was the lady.It s her big sister, no wonder they looked alike but something s weird if her sister doesn t seem like she s had any accident, she looks perfectly fine just thin. Her sister then waves at her and walks away and Bea returns to practicing. It s funny how I could just sit here and watch her. I never thought I would be doing something like this, but what I never even thought would happen is that the snow queen I admired would be my friend. She finished her practice just before the mall s closing time. I asked her where she would want to eat. Bea: KFC. Heheh. While walking towards the place we would eat I noticed she was holding her right leg from time to time. We got to KFC and I asked her what she wants to eat, as I order I asked her to sit and wait for me. I notice that she s still holding her leg and she seems to massage it, it must be hurting. Walking towards her with the food she suddenly takes her hand off of her leg. While we eat I asked her if she s feeling ok or if she s tired. Bea: I m ok. It s nice eating with you pala. How come I don t see you with your barkada that often na? Paul: Busy lang kame kaya we can t hang out as often as we want. Bea: Ganon ba talaga? You can tell me naman kung ano talaga yung reason. Paul: My nasabi ba si Sarah sayo? Bea: Nasabi niya na ikaw daw lumayo sa kanila dahil kay Jessica. Paul:Hindi ko lang talaga kaya pa sila harapin ngayon. Besides masakit yung nangyari. Bea: Alam ko masakit, but still it s not worth throwing away your friendship dahil sa mga nangyari. Paul: The moment they chose to be with each other they chose to throw away our friendship na. Bea: Look bestfriend mo si Lloyd at you guys were like brothers right? Paul: That s it nga ehh. We were like brothers pero he stole my girl. Bea: It s just a girl. She s just a girl Pao. Let it go. Paul: Bakit have you ever been betrayed? How can you talk like that? Do you know what you re talking about? Bea: Oo. I ve been betrayed before, I know what you re feeling right now. Kaya believe me it s best if you let go. Paul: How do I let go. . .How do I let her go. . .How could I. . .How. . . She holds her hands out to me and she says.
Hold my hands, I promise to make everything better. I won t let you go. We ve only seen each other recently we hardly talk to each other before, we didn t even know each other existed until recently. Now she s telling me these things, can I trust her? What if I get hurt again? What if she also leaves me for somebody else? Bea: Don t worry Pao. I m not like her. I won t hurt you. I won t ever betray you. And there s my answer, Ok. . .I will trust her. . . Paul: Cge. . .Pero I have one condition. . . Bea: Ano yun? Paul: Don t ever leave my side. She smiles at me. I won t ever leave your side Pao. After eating and that conversation we walk to the taxi stand but before we get there she said she wants to stay a while more and so we head to the back of the mall to the bayside. She is still holding her leg from time to time. Paul: Masakit ba? Come on. I carry her. Weird she s light but she s not thin, don t get me wrong she s not fat but she s just too light, I thought she would at least weigh more than Jess. I walk to the bayside with her on my back she was talking and telling me a lot of things, when we got there I placed her on the bench and asked how her leg feels. Bea: Medyo ok na. Thanks Pao. We both just stare at the sea and the lights on the horizon, she moved closer to me and placed her head on my shoulder. She told me that it s her first time here with someone special since her ex didn t like going out. She told me about the things that happened between her and her ex, they were living together and one day she was surprised the door of their condo was locked from the inside. She was surprised and so she knocked and a girl opened the door. Bea: She was wearing Kim s shirt. . .I didn t think of anything bad kasi maybe she s a relative pero when Kim went out of the shower with a surprised look on his face it said it all. Paul: What did you do? Bea: I smiled at him lang then packed my things. Paul: Didn t he try to patch things up?
Bea: He tried, pero ayoko na. He did it once he could certainly do it again. Paul: Why haven t you taken off that ring? You re still in-love with him right? Bea: Ahhh this? She took it off and throws it at the sea. Bea: I promised myself I won t take it off until I have found someone who would fill the hole inside me. We continued on talking until she stopped. Why did she stop talking? She fell asleep. That s why I carried her again and I headed to the taxi stand, when I got there lucky there was still a taxi available. I was looking at her face while she sleeps. Driver: Magkapatid ba kayo sir? Paul: Hindi po. Driver: Ahh magkamukha kasi kayo sir. Ano niyo siya? Girlfriend? Paul: Ndi ko pa po alam kung girlfriend ko na siya pero special po siya sa akin. Driver: Bakit hindi niyo siya tanungin? Paul: Mahirap na po manong baka masira kung ano man meron kami ngayon. Driver: Pero pano sir kung may gusto na pala siya sa inyo? I wasn t able to answer the driver, it s impossible, her liking me is like saying I m someone worth liking, besides there isn t anything about me that s likeable,not my face, the clothes I wear, my attitude, me as whole, there isn t anything that she could possibly like. I still couldn t believe she would throw away the one thing that reminds her of her ex, she s had it till today and yet she threw it away just like that.She must ve been really tired today, just look at her face. She s fast asleep, I never noticed it but she doesn t look her age, I guess we really do look like siblings. Arriving at her house I rang the doorbell twice and her mom comes out. Mrs. Hill: Aba! Ginabi na baby girl ko. Paul: Sorry po. Hindi ko napo napansin kasi yung oras. Mrs. Hill: Ok lang yon. Paki pasok nalang siya sa loob nang bahay. Paul: Ok po. Wow the inside was totally different, when you look at their house from the outside it looks really plain but the inside was like a traditional Filipino house, really amazing. I wonder who did the interior design. Mrs. Hill: Halika tuloy ka lang, sa taas pa room ni Bea. Her room was on the third floor, lucky she s light or else I wouldn t be able to carry her. When I got to her room her mom turned the lights on and asked me to place her on the bed. Her room was like a little girl s room not the typical room a senior college student would have, I guess it s too be expected since she s the youngest and she s the baby here, but still she s a senior why would her parents treat her like a
little princess still? While walking down the stairs her mom and I were sort of talking, well she was, I was just listening. She explained why Bea s room was still like that. Mrs. Hill: She was living na kasi with her fiancé after she graduated from High School, kaya her dad and me decided to keep her room exactly the way it was plus hindi naman siya ganon kadalas umuwi dito. Paul: Ganon po ba? Mrs. Hill:Uuwi lang siya ditto kapag New year or kapag nag-away sila ni Kim. Naikwento na ba niya sayo yung nangyari sa kanila? Paul: Opo. Mrs. Hill: Mahal na mahal niya yun si Kim, I won t ever forget kung paano siya halos mawala sa sarili dati. Please Paul huwag mo sana siya saktan. Kung kaibigan lang siya sayo then stay as friends na lang, madali siya ma-fall sa isang guy, lalo na may something siyang naikwento about sayo before. Paul: Opo. Ano po yung naikwento niya? Mrs. Hill: Crush ka kasi niya dati pa, nung 1st year ata siya. She s always saying na meron daw siyang nakakatuwang classmate. Pero she can t say it to Kim kasi seloso yun, kaya sa amin nalang niya kinikwento lagi. So she has a crush on me? Weird girl. Out of all the guys in school, why would she have a crush on me? What could she possibly have seen in me? The conversation with her mom was ok, I was still too shy to talk, so all I could do was listen. When we got downstairs she offered me a drink but I refused saying I have to go since I still have class tomorrow. I went out, said farewell and apologized for staying out too late with Bea. When I got home, mom was already lying on the couch so I had to carry her to her room and change her clothes, she s drunk, probably had a bit of celebrating to do at work. After I made sure she s comfy I went to my room and checked if my email. 1 new mail I wonder who s it from, when I looked. It was from Bea. Pao, Wala na pala akong load, sorry nakatulog ako, nakakahiya you had to carry me to my room. Nasa bahay ka na kaya? Reply kung nasa bahay ka na. Bea I m tired, I ll just reply tomorrow morning. My morning was the same as always fix breakfast for mom and me, eat then go to school. I checked my phone before going out it s the same no messages and no missed calls, how long has it been like this? If I m not mistaken it s the second year that my phone hasn t been busy, before my friends would always send me messages, and if course she would too and she s the only one who calls me. Now after that incident my phone has stopped ringing. Just as I arrived in school I receive a message.
I don t have any class today, how about you? Tambay tayo mamaya? It was from Bea, so she doesn t have class today. That explains why she wasn t worried about going home late. Hang out later? I ll think about it, I m not in the mood to hang out today. Besides I want to sleep since I didn t get enough sleep. After all my classes are over I texted Bea. Sorry, not feeling well today. Next time nalang. I went straight home and finished all the things that I needed to do, then I took a nap. I was woken up by the nonstop ringing of my phone. It was annoying, I tried to ignore the first two calls but on the third I answered with a grumpy voice. Bea: Ok ka lang ba? Paul: Oo. Please mamaya ka na tumawag masakit ulo ko gusto ko matulog. Then I ended the call, turned my phone off and placed it in my drawer. She called just to ask if I m ok? What is wrong with her? She s acting like a girlfriend. I don t like it when someone disturbs my sleep. Before I go back to sleep I remember what she said last night about not letting me go and not hurting me. I open my drawer, grab my phone, turn it on and called her. Paulo: Sorry, masama lang talaga pakiramdam ko. Bea: Ok lang, uminom ka ba nang gamot? Sino kasama mo diyan? Anu ba nararamdaman mo? Paul: Slight headache lang, wala ako lang tao dito sa bahay. Hindi na kailangan magtake nang gamot just need to rest.Grabe mga tanong mo huh, parang GF na kita. Bea: Heheh sorry naman! Single ka naman single din ako pwede nang tayo di ba? Heheh Paul: Pwede?? Akala ko kasi tayo na because of what you said last night hahah. Bea: Heheh utot mo Pao! Mahal mo pa ex mo ehh. Maybe pwedeng magging tayo kapag nakapagmoveon ka na. Paul: Wow huh. Parang ikaw hindi huh. Bea: Heheh. I wasn t able to go back to sleep since we talked for hours on the phone, we just stopped when mom arrived. Before going to bed I sent her a text message asking if she s still awake and if she would want to go to school together tomorrow. She replied. Gising pa ko, sure pero dapat huwag mo na ako paghintayin nang matagal ha! Heheh. Before I knew it we were already hanging out every day and going to school together if she happens to have class, we even eat together and go home together, of course I accompany her whenever she goes skating. We even spend the weekends together, what do we do? We just waste the day away hanging out, eating out, teasing, watching dvd s and sometimes she comes to my house to disturb the silence and cook for me, well she s not the best cook but it s edible somehow. I ve already met her dad and
older sister and she met my mom. Are we a couple? Nope. We just enjoy each other s company, there s nothing romantic about us, even people who see us together mistake us as siblings. No intimacy here folks. Well exam weekarrived and I had to help her study, her mom was teasing about her not being the smartest but she s hard working. While I was teaching her I never realized she had fallen asleep, well it s late anyway. I left their house but before I did I made her a reviewer and a few extra s to help her study. Days passed and we were both too busy, that the only time we got to be together was during the first day of the exams since we re going to school together. Paul: Kamusta pag-review mo? My pumasok ba sa utak mo? Hahah. Bea: Heheh yabang mo! Meron naman kasi ok yung ginawa mong reviewer, cute din nung mga side notes mo heheh. Paul: Dapat masmataas makuha mo sa akin huh. Bea: Heheh Naku! Don t worry talagang masmataas mkukuha ko sayo. We separated in school, while taking the exam I couldn t help but think how she s doing, I rushed answering the first test and when I finished I asked the proctor if I could go out for some air. I went to her room to check how she s doing. Surprisingly she seems to be doing well, she doesn t look too stressed, after seeing how she was doing I went back to my room. As soon as my exams for the day was over I headed to her room. I waited for her to finish and asked how she did. Bea: Madali lang yung mga test. Mas mahirap pa yung reviewer na ginawa mo ehh. Paul: Wow huh. Edi pwede na pala ako magging Prof? Hahah. Bea: Heheh hindi bagay sayo magging prof! Before going home we stopped by the coffee shop first to relax. Two more days of exams and I could rest peacefully. While we were talking she suddenly points out the window and I see my ex with my best friend, yup I still consider him my best friend after all we ve been through a lot together. I notice that they re heading towards us. What could they want? As they get closer I realized that I m ready to talk to them and I m ready to let the past go. The first to approach me was Jessica and she kissed me on the cheek, a sort of hello. I then waved at Lloyd and asked him to come nearer, when he did I lightly punched his shoulder like the way I used to before things happened between the three of us. Paul: Kamusta na? Na miss mo ba ako? Lloyd: Ungas ka talaga. Paul: I want you to meet Bea nga pala. Jessica: GF mo? Bea: Yup. She answered Jessica s question?? She s my girlfriend?? Really?? Lloyd: Ganda naman niya dude. Jessica: Oo nga. Ikaw pala si Bea, heard a lot about you from Sarah.
Paul: So how are you two naman? Lloyd: We re good. We re thinking of getting married na after college. Paul: Ahh talaga?? Congrats dude! Heheh. I m the best-man right? Lloyd: Of course! May iba pa ba? Hahah. After a few more conversations Bea and I left them with smiles on our faces, as for her saying she was my girl-friend, well I had to ask her if it was only a joke or if it is true. I for one sure would be surprised if it was true since I never could notice her falling for me or anything romantic between us. Paul: Bea, what you said earlier about you being my girl-friend. What was that about? Bea: Heheh wala naman akong sinabi na girl-friend mo ako huh. Paulo: Hay nako! Heheh. Bea: What if girl-friend mo nga ako? Ayaw mo ba? Paul: Pwede na din.Hahah. Laughing and teasing as we were going home, it s confirmed she is my girl-friend now. It s sort of weird since it was like all of a sudden but I m happy since whenever I m with her I have nothing to worry about. It s different with her than when I was with Jessica, speaking of which I was a bit surprised that they re planning on getting married after college that s only a few months away. We arrived at Bea s house and she asked if I wanted to come inside but I said I had to go home, as I walked away she shouted. Uoy evol I! What the heck was that?? Latin?? French?? What language could it be?? I was really puzzled. I was thinking of it even when I was reviewing for the exam. I couldn t take it anymore so I called her up and asked what it was that she shouted earlier. Bea: Hahah uoy evol i. Paul: Ano nga yun?? French ba yun? Latin? Bea: Secret! Hahah. Paul: Grabe naman. Bea: Isulat mo un I love you then read it backwards. I wrote it down on a piece of paper and read it backwards as she said. Paulo: Hahah! Yun pala! Bea: Ayy grabe, now mo lang nalaman yun? Paulo: Oo hahah. Akala ko it was French or Latin. Our conversation went on for hours, but we were sort of reviewing over the phone. When we decided to sleep it was about 3am. I ll only have a few hours to sleep but no problem, I m excited to see her
tomorrow. Well it was a very atrocious day, exactly the opposite of what I was hoping for. First Bea was busy and we couldn t go to school together, after taking the exam I headed for her classroom but she wasn t there, I sent her a text message asking where she is but she didn t reply. Second I had to attend another meeting in place of my mom, I had to see a lot of people that hate me and I got scolded by my grandfather as well, as I was walking out I overheard people talking about me and my mom. Finally the worst that could happen actually happened something that I thought would happen only in my nightmares, I went over to Bea s place since she hasn t replied to any of my messages and wouldn t answer her phone as well, a few blocks from their house I saw her with this guy in front of their house and her mom was there as well. I was curious so I walked towards them smiling. Paul: Good evening po. Mrs. Hill:Oh Paul! It s a little late na. Paul: Napadaan lang po tita, I was worried po kasi since Bea didn t come to school. Bea: Sorry. Kim usap lang kame saglit ha. Kim: Sure take your time. I see it was him, No wonder she s forgotten about me this day. Maybe they ve patched things up between them, but what becomes of me now? Of us? What a stupid question, of course I m out of the picture. Why would she need me anymore right? When he s back in her life, while we were walking I sort of get the feeling like I know what she s going to say. Bea: Pao, sorry ha. Paul: Heheh ang serious mo naman! Sorry saan naman yan? Bea: Pao, sorry talaga. Paul: Hindi ka pumasok kanina. Magkasama kayo the whole day? Bea: Yup. He came to our house this morning, gusto niya makipagusap. Paul: Ano naman napagusapan niyo? Bea: Madami din, he needs me kasi right now Pao. Paul: Heheh ang serious mo talaga. Smile ka muna. Bea: Pao sorry talaga. I still love him, akala ko hindi na, pero when we were talking I realized it. Paul: You realized na siya talaga gusto mo makasama right? Bea: Sorry Pao. She started to cry, what a silly girl. Actually I wanted to cry as well but maybe deep inside I knew that a day like this will come. If ever Kim comes back then I surely would be kicked out of the picture but it s ok, after all if you look at it they re more suited for each other. Another reason for me not able to cry was that everything s a real big shock that my tears just won t fall. It was really painful though, just as when things were just starting between us then this happens, I was finally able to move on with her beside me but then her past comes back and well I m tossed aside. Paul: Heheh oh? Bakit ka naman umiiyak?? Ok lang yun Bea. It s ok. I m ok. So stop crying na. Gwapo ni Kim pala hahah. Bagay talaga kayo. Siguro tuloy na wedding niyo right?
Bea: Heheh sira! Baliw ka talaga Pao! Pero yup tuloy na, wala pang date nga lang. Paul: Invited dapat ako ha! Hahah. Can I ask one last favor from you? Bea: Huh?? Bakit last?? Paul: Basta! Heheheh. Ok lang ba panuorin pa din kita mag-skate? Bea: Oo naman. We hung out for a few minutes more, then I told her she needs to go back. When we got to their house Kim was waiting at the door, I wanted to hug Bea one last time but instead I held out my hand and smiled at her while saying. Congrats. You ve found your happily ever after. After we shake hands I looked at Kim and waved, he just nodded and smiled at me. He s one lucky guy, I envy him, I wanted to beat him up till I m satisfied but what for right? She chose him. After that things went back to normal, well not really the last day of the exams didn t go well for me, and basically the rest of the semester, but since I my family had strong connections and not to mention I m actually one of the top students, I got away with just a few excuses and some projects. Graduation day was sort of stupid for me so I didn t attend it besides I had to go somewhere in place of mom and meet a few people. A few months later it was Lloyd and Jessica s wedding I wasn t able to attend since I was making sure the business deal in Sidney goes smoothly. I m actually a business man now, well it s sort of a family business so I had no other choice. My life after college? It was nothing worth mentioning, I just sort of poured my attention into the family business and after my grandfather passed away, my uncle succeeded him as owner, it was supposed to be me but I didn t want it. My mom got married again after a few years, the wedding was simple.She s now living in Spain with my new dad. Well as for me I bought a condo near the office since I rather became a workaholic but every time I m free I would go and sit by the ice-skating rink. So what happened to Beatrice Hill?? She didn t continue on being a figure skater but followed her dream of becoming a ballet dancer. Of course I watched her first show, well every one of her shows, but we no longer talk to each other. She was still sending messages, emails, and calling me up till after graduation and when my grandfather died she was at the funeral. She was also there when mom got married. I was the one who sort of distanced myself from her, I didn t want any more conversations with her, I m afraid that I might break down or ask her to be with me. To be honest I was never ok with her going back to Kim, I wanted to keep her all to myself but I can t since I m not the one she really loves. Then one day I received a wedding invitation from her, how did I react? I was crushed inside but I was also happy for her since she d be married to the person she really loves, but tragedy strikes when she was on her way to pick up her wedding dress.Shegot into an accident, but don t worry she didn t die of course but she needed a heart. Well guess who gave her a heart so that she could live? None other than me,It was sort of my wedding gift to her, besides this way I ll always be with her. Besides I ve already given her my heart before just this time it s literally. I have no regrets, well maybe a few. I regret that I wasn t good enough for her. I couldn t love her enough for her not to choose Kim over me. There are a lot of things I wanted to tell her, but maybe those things are better left unsaid. This is my story it s a happy ending but not a fairytale ending. I fell inlove with a snow queen and now I m forever with her.
