"Indelible"

Story by HaveYouSeenThisGirL 

In a world where one mistake can turn your life upside down, what would you do to reverse it?

July Isabedra is at the height of her acting career. She's loved and admired by everyone. Everything seemed perfect until the day of her 25th birthday.

She learns that her mom only sees her as a money-making machine. Her circle of friends talks behind her back. Her onscreen partner, who is also her two-year boyfriend, is cheating on her. Drunk and heartbroken, she goes live on her social media page to let out her feelings. She regrets it when she wakes up the next day and finds out that she's the most hated person in the country.

After losing her career and being unemployed for almost two years, she flies to Brisbane to attend her sister's wedding and consider her job offer. On her first night in the land down under, she runs into Kevin Sy, the lead vocalist of the popular band Runaway. An encounter that will let July Isabedra realize that indelible things can't be erased, but they can definitely change.

"YOU are . . . " Tumigil siya sa pagsasalita habang nakaturo sa akin ang kanyang kanang hintuturo. Umiiling siya na tila hindi makapaniwala sa nakikita. Ipinagpatuloy niya ang kaniyang tanong. "You can't be that July Isabedra, right?"

Humigpit ang hawak ko sa aking baso na ngayon ay halos wala ng laman dahil aksidenteng natapon ito sa puting polo shirt ng lalaking nasa harapan ko. Pakiramdam ko ay pinagpapawisan ako kahit malamig naman ang simoy ng hangin. Tila humina rin ang kanina lang na maingay na paligid at mas naririnig ko na ang malakas na tibok ng puso ko. 

After that scandal from 2 years ago, I've always feared being recognized especially by any person from the entertainment industry. They always bring up the past and they never fail to make me feel like a piece of shit. 

Halos hindi ako lumabas ng bahay sa matagal na panahon upang iwasan lahat ng tao sa mundo para sa ikakatahimik ng isipan at puso ko. 

And when I finally decided to step out of my room again and go to another country, here I am standing in front of Kevin Sy and wanting to puke at him. 

"Are you okay?" Pagtataka niya nang mapayuko ako at napatakip ng bibig imbis na sumagot sa nauna niyang tanong. Nang hindi ulit ako magsalita ay hinawakan niya ang kaliwang balikat ko at yumuko siya upang silipin ang mukha ko. Napaangat ako ng tingin at saglit na nagtama ang aming mga mata bago ako tuluyang nasuka. 

He jumps away from me just like everyone else who's near me and witnessed my mess. I can hear people cursing while throwing disgusted looks at me. I couldn't stop myself from vomiting everything I ate in that fucking airplane 12 hours ago! 

I want to run and hide from the humiliation, but how can I do that if I'm stuck in this stupid yacht for the next 20 minutes? Unless I choose to dive and swim the cold Brisbane river to escape this misery. 

Ah shit, July.  Why do you always end up embarrassing yourself?

A/N:

Hello! I can't help myself, gusto ko na isulat ito kaya i-delay ko muna 'yong side story ng Lie About Love na Like Chalk and Cheese. Isusulat ko pa rin naman 'yon pero saka na muna, ito muna kasi gusto ko na talaga siya isulat. HAHAHA!

Yes, this is Kevin Sy's story. I initially wanted the title to be "Every 30 Seconds of You" kaso naisip ko since 1-word title lang din si Voiceless, pinalitan ko ng "Indelible". Hahahaha!

If you haven't read Voiceless yet, don't worry, hindi ka naman maliligaw sa kwento dito dahil sariling kwento ito ni Kevin Sy. Pero if you want to read Voiceless, you may buy a copy na rin. I will really appreciate it! Link for my books: bit.ly/hystgbook

Update schedule? Wala po, kung kailan lang ako available since I have a full-time job + freelance. Hehe! Most likely weekends ang updates ko.
