This will be the Last

How ever perfect a love story can be there would always be imperfections. Dilemmas that places them wherever they may be.

You'll never know how it ends.

Kathy.

Ang name na yan eh kadugtong na ng pangalang Kenneth. Well. Sa istoryang ito, wala nang iba pang Kathy kundi si Katherine lang. Kathy na hindi naman talaga niya pangalan, Kathy na bininyag lang sa kanya ng isang lalaking di niya akalaing mamahalin niya.

Nasan na nga ba sila? Si Kenneth nandun sa hospital at binabantayan si Tricia. He's actually JUST there. He thought it's a perfect place to think. Place where tranquility is at its best. Pero ano nga bang iniisip niya? Alam na. It's always been her.

It was approximately 21 hours ago since she left. And he hasn't eaten anything yet. Gusto niya munang maialis ang sarili sa conundrum na kinagagalawan niya ngayon. He couldn't struggle away no matter how forceful he was, but wait! He isn't forceful, in fact he is weak. He was drained from energy and hopes. He thought everything would be fine, he never expected at least any of these. Napaka-unfair! Lagi nalang bang may crisis pag dating sa kanila? Bakit nga ba naging ganito? He can't just blame Tricia for taking position into the scene, though it's obvious na isa siya sa culprit.

Napaka-immodest naman kasi kung magagalit siya sa taong ngayon ay unconscious pa. Kahit wala siyang kasalanan he feels sorry for her. Wala naman talaga eh. It's Tricia's decision that placed her kung ano man at kung nasan man siya ngayon. Tricia's parents just received the news by Kenneth's explanation. Hindi naman nagalit ang parents ni Tricia dahil in the first place eh alam na talaga nila, being the guardians, ang ugali ni Tricia. She changed, even Tricia admits that. Pero mahirap bumalik sa dati diba. Hindi ganun kadali yun, it would consume a lot of time.

The door silently open. "Hey. You should really go regain your strength."

"I don't have any showbiz appointments in line, Andrew. So it's fine."

"Who says I'm talking about your world? I'm referring to her."

Nanlambot si Kenneth. Her name right now? Yeah, it haunts him.

"Look, Kenneth. Hindi ko hahayaang mawala ang pinaghihirapan ko ngayon dahil lang sa nangyari. Kath might have broken down emotionally, pero gagaling din yun. Well sana. So get the crap out if here and... I don't know. Rehearse what you will be saying, doing, anything. Just make sure it will work."

Kenneth pushed a smile, "I don't know why you're doing this, or I don't know if I'm right about a thing. But thank you."

Without hesitation, Andrew smiled bak and patted his back. There's no rivalry in his dictionary. Mabait yang taong yan eh. Di lang halata at ayaw din niyang ipakita.

Sa totoo lang din naman, halata rin ni Kenneth na gusto ni Andrew si Kath. At he's more than thankful na hindi siya nagbarge in sa kung ano mang meron sa kanila, look, tumutulong pa nga para magkaayos diba. Despite of all that, Kenneth thought of how painful it was for Andrew. If only there's a way he could pay him back.
