This is another story. Papunta na kong Cavite galling Calamba at nagkita kami nila Benny at Prince sa SM to eat dinner. Nag-decide kami na sa Burger King nalang kumain kasi dun lang may vacant na table. Masaya we had small talks which develop our friendship. (Di ko na crush si Prince, friend lang pala talaga yung tingin ko sa kanya.) Tapos nalaman nilang nakapasa nga ako dun sa Lasallian Pop Band so pinapakanta nila ako. Eh nahihiya akong kumanta dun sa BK ang daming tao sa paligid. Edi sabi nila sa Quantum nalang daw, edi punta naman kaming Quantum. Tapos bumili kami ng tokens, pinakanta nila ako dun sa public videoke hindi dun sa private. THE FAK. I picked, “That’s What You Get by Paramore” nung kumakanta na ko. Grabe, nakakahiya. HAHAHAHA, chinicheer nila ko pero patigil-tigil ako tapos nararamdaman ko ang dami ng nanonood. After nun, ang lamig ko binigay ko nalang dun sa mga babae yung kanta. Nag-basketball nalang kami. Pagkalabas naming ng Quantum, sabi nila ang galing ko daw. Edi ako humble lang. HAHAHAHAHA, SHET. TAE, AKO BA TO. Tapos ayun, umuwi na kami. Nakauwi ako mga 9 pm na. Buti nalang fiesta pala ditto samin sa Cavite kaya hindi ako napagalitan kasi maingay pa sila eh. HAHAHAHAHA. And that is also one of the best days of my life.
It’s been a while since I last wrote here. Well, my college life gets exciting as time goes by, I don’t know where to start but let us first go back on June 24th, my birthday. It was a fine and simple day. I woke up got ready for school my first greeting was from my best friend Darlynne. Sobrang na-touch talaga ako sa mga sinabi niya and I know na it’s from the heart and true. Then my relatives here in Cavite also greeted me. When I got to school, I was with Dave and Edrian, two of my blockmates, they did not greet me and t’was fine naman. Maybe they don’t know at that time when I reached the shed. Mark shouted, “Happy birthday, Kate Leen!!” then they sang all together. I thanked them and invited them over but they refused to come. When I entered the room, Prince greeted me and followed by everyone. HAHAHAHA. Huge wave of zombies were greeting me. Joke. Then on REED, they also sang and greeted me on opening and closing. Gahd, that was so embarrassing. On our dismissal, to my surprise my lovely blockmates gave me a present and it was much appreciated. I don’t know what to say but I’m thankful. I went home and I was very happy that I was able to spend time with my family on my birthday. Happy 16th birthday to me, I’m already 16 so close to 18. Yay!
The Next Day
They still have a hang-over on my birthday. HAHAHAHAHA, they still greet me. My class today is just English and I’m great. I’m still alive but I’m barely breathing. WHAT. HAHAHAHAHA. I have my audition on Lasallian Pop Band at 5:30 pm. So I have to wait after my class, we were supposed to go to SM but they’ve decided to just play Dota, so I have to hang-out with my girls on 7-11, wasting time away. On my way to my auditions, I saw Kyle so I called up to him and we hang-out with his friend at the CBA building. After a while I went to the audition, I was the 3rd auditionee. When I got there, I feel the chills all over my body. I have never been that nervous all my life. I sang Demons and it was epic… fail. I also sang Someone Like You and That’s What You Get which is a little better than Demons. I already felt like giving up. I cried my way out, I called Prince I was really crying hard and he was there cheering me up. I called Benny and Rhenz so I would feel better. I went to Kyle and told them I was fine and not to worry and I’m already going home even if I really don’t feel like going home. I walked to Gate 1 with my eyes on the floor I almost bump to everyone all the time cause I wasn’t looking on my way. My eyes are clouded with tears. Benny texted me and we meet up at one of the shed in front of the CTHM building. I was still crying when he saw me I can see that he’s already freaking out so he tried so hard to make me smile. We didn’t realize that it was already 6 pm and it was dark, the lights were open at the La Salle which made it more breathtakingly beautiful. We walked to the Gate 3, because we wanted to see La Salle at night, we walked through the bridge and it has lights on the side which made it more cinematic. We walked through the square, the oval, the grandstand, the ULS. It was a dreamy day; it was one of the best days of my life. We also walked through the Kadiwa Park which has lights on every tree, fountains and falls. It was very enchanted with Benny!! Hahahahaha, cutiepatootie ever. We run to the nearest jeep so we could finally go home. I got home almost 8 pm but it was all worth it.
I never thought that college would be this wonderful. I was elected vice-president because my blockmates think I am smart, but I don’t really think that I am. So, I’m enjoying the new chapter of my life now.
WHAT. I’M SO KILIG. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
This day akala ko normal lang ang araw na to. Kumain kami sa labas nila tita bago kami pumasok magpipinsan. Akala ko malalate na ko. Kasi kailangan ko pang maglakad ng sobrang layo para lang makapunta sa room ko. Juskopo. HAHAHAHAHA. Edi ganto ganyan. English lang yung subject naming today tapos later mag-eexam na kami sa Heraldo Filipino ni Kyle. Nung English time, nagkaroon ng activity. We need to make a short skit na nagpapakita ng pag-misuse ng English words. Sakto magka-group kami ni Prince. What the fak. Tapos dun sa scene surprise. Hahahaha, lumapit sakin si Prince tapos nag-request siya na magpicture daw kami, sabi ko, “I’m sorry I don’t take pictures with strangers.” Pero inside, gusto ko talaga, gahd. After nun, hinanap namin ni Rhenz kung saan nagpapainquire for varsity. Tapos hanap hanap. Nung natapos na, hinanap naman naming kung saan makukuha yung module 2 sa English. Edi punta kaming library, pagkalabas namin, umuwi na si Rhenz kami nalang ni Kyle. Sakto nakita namin si Angelo, pupuntahan niya daw mga kasama niya, edi sumabay na kami maglakad kasi dun din naman ang daan naming papuntang Admin building. Nakasalubong naming sila Prince, tinanong ko siya kung kelan siya mag-eexam kasi nag-apply siya for feature section. Tapos sabi ko ngayon na kami mag-eexam sumabay nalang siya. Yieeee!! Hahahahaha. Tapos kain muna daw kami, edi lumabas kami para kumain. Lima nalang kaming magkakasama kasi umuwi na yung iba. Magkatapat kami ni Prince tapos marami kaming napagkwentuhan, sobrang happy!! Tapos pumunta na yung dalawa sa dorm nila edi kami nalang tatlo ni Kyle at Prince. Pumunta na kaming Admin building para mag-take ng exam! Grabe sobrang haba ng exam, nakakahilo. Mga mag-5 na kami natapos, hindi pa naming tapos sagutan. Kung tinapos naming yun, gagabihin kami. Katabi ko si Prince magsagot, my golly!! Hahaha. Edi napagusapan naming ipasa na kahit di pa tapos, wala na din naming point. Hinintay namin si Kyle sa baba ng admin building tapos kami lang nakaupo dun sa hagdan. Grabeeee. Tapos nag-selfie kami dun! May picture na kami, odiba? Bongga. Textmates na din. HAHAHAHAHAHA. Tapos ayun, sabay-sabay na kaming lumabas sa gate 1. Pagkauwi ko ng bahay, nakangiti ako mukha daw akong tanga. Tinatawanan nila ako. HAHAHAHAHAHA, yoko na pls.
I’m so happy. I went home early kasi ang aga ng dismissal namin. Pero dumaan muna kami nila Rhenz and Bryan sa mga booth ng clubs to join. I joined sa Heraldo Filipino Literary Section, Pointes and Flexes and Lasallian Pop Band. Tapos bumili ako ng book naming sa Trigo at Algebra. Pagkauwi ko, punta daw kami dun sa pinsan ko. Edi sunod lang ako. Then suddenly, tumawag sila Simon sabi nila punta daw silang Dasma pero nagjojoke lang naman sila. Sabi ko sige punta sila. Tapos itatry daw nila. Haha, pinilit ko silang pumunta. Nagkaroon ng thunderstorm. HAHAHAHA, natuloy naman sila ni cutie pie Alain. Tapos sobrang namiss ko talaga sila. Kaya when I saw them tumakbo ako. HAHAHAHAHA, sabik sa tao? HAHAHAHA. Tapos ayun naghanap kami ng makakainan. Kumain kami tatlo sa Burger King, tapos nagkwentuhan na about stuffs and college. Masaya lang ako kasi dumaan sila dito sa Dasma to visit me. Aw, cutie patootie talaga.
I’m lost in my own silence. When I got out of the bathroom, I’m all alone in this empty house. I’m so scared, I don’t know where they went and it’s been hours they’re still outside. I don’t know what to do, I need to calm myself.
I spent most of my day crying. I don’t know why but I don’t want to go to school anymore. I don’t want to see him. I don’t want to talk to anyone. I hope Monday won’t be so bad at me at all.
These were the moments I can’t forget with him or let’s just call him Prince:
Kilig moment #1
Lumabas kami ng DLSU-D para kumain kasi puno na sa canteen tsaka hindi masyadong masarap yung pagkain. On our way palabas, mahaba pa yung lalakarin so nag-usap muna kami ni Prince. I found out na marami kaming similarities, and my god he’s so perfect, his type of songs, movies and books. We’ve talked about a lot of things. Then nung nandun na kami sa kakainan namin. Ang haba ng pila, and we have to look pa for table. So, kami nung iba naming kasama looked for one. Tapos nung nakahanap na kami, nakapila na sila. Pipila pa dapat ako sa likod pero tinawag niya ko, sabi niya “Kate, dito ka na oh.” Tapos nasa unahan niya ko. Yieee. Tapos edi um-order na ko, umupo na ako sa table namin, nauna ako tapos maya-maya tumabi na siya sakin. Edi kumain na kami kasama yung iba naming kasama. Nung tapos na kami kumain nag-ayos pa ko. Tapos may policy nga yung DLSU-D na “Clay Go” edi kami naman sobrang bait naming oh sila lang. Haha, niligpit naming yung kinain naming tapos nilagay naming sa rack. Kinuha niya na din yung pinggan ko kahit hindi naman kailangan. Sobrang gentleman niya talaga. Ugh.
Kilig moment #2
Pabalik ng room, magkausap nanaman kami kasi mahabang lakarin nanaman, tapos habang nasa room kami. Magkatapat lang kasi yung seats namin, palagi ko siyang nahuhuling nakatingin. My god ang cute niya talaga with those dimples. Sino ba naming babae ang hindi matutunaw. I’m dying, save me.
Kilig moment #3
Meron nanaman kaming afternoon break, napagod ako dun sa activity naming kaya bumili muna ako ng water sa nearby canteen. Eh ako naman si clumsy, natapon pa yung tubig ko so I have to go sa Animo Shop para mag-refill ng water dun sa fountain, nadaanan ko siya dun sa court. Tapos nung pagkabalik ko lumapit ako sa kanila, kunwari manonood din akong basketball. Tapos tinanong niya ako, “San ka galling?” tapos sabi ko, “Bumili lang ako ng tubig.” Tapos nag-usap nanaman kami about stuffs. Tapos tinanong niya ako, “Saan ka lumalabas?” sabi ko, “Sa Gate 1. Ikaw?” he replied sadly, “Sa Gate 3 eh, malapit kasi dun yung hotel ko.” Sabi ko, “Ah.” Grabe ang dami na talagang weird thoughts na pumapasok sa isip ko pero I don’t want to assume agad.
Kilig moment #4
Medyo inaantok na ako sa classroom. Tapos nung malapit na mag-uwian nakita ko yung mga babae na kinakausap siya, tapos ang kikire. Tae, parang kumikirot. Hahahahaha! Ayoko nito pls. Nung uwian na, nag-aabang siya dun sa pinto kasama yung iba naming kaibigan. Wala akong sinabihan ng bye, kahit nagsasabihan na sila nun. Nakatingin siya sakin, sa isip ko siguro he was expecting na magba-bye ako sa kanya. Eh irita ako gawa nung mga babae, I went straight sa may papuntang Gate 1, sa may clinic para kuhanin yung medical result ko. Tapos nagulat talaga ako!!! Nakita ko siyang naghihintay sa labas ng clinic. Naisip ko, bakit kaya siya nandito eh pwede naman siyang dumeretso na sa Gate 3, magkaiba naman yung direction namin. Tapos pagkalabas ko, nakangiti siya!!! Mamamatay na ata ako sa bilis ng tibok ng puso ko, namumula nga ata ako nun eh. Tinanong ko siya, “Oh? Bakit ka nandito?” Sabi niya, “Ah, tinignan ko lang kung may I.D na ko. Eh sarado pa.” sa isip ko sus nagpapalusot ka lang eh. Sabi ko, “Ah ganun ba? Sige, bye! Ingat ka J” Sabi niya, “Bye. Ingat ka din..” as I watch him walk away parang nanghihinayang ako, sana pinasama ko muna siya papuntang Gate 1 sigurado may sasakyan din naman siya dun eh. Pero still, nakakakilig!!
Pero at the end of the day ayoko pa ding umasa. Nag-pray nalang ako na sana hindi matuloy yung nararamdaman ko kasi natatakot ako eh. Natatakot ako sa ganung feeling na nafafall out of love. Mas gusto ko na friends lang kami and ayoko na talagang masaktan. Kaya nga sa Monday, I’ll try to avoid him as possible as I can.
“Well, look who I ran into," crowed Coincidence.
“Please,” flirted Fate, “this was meant to be.”
