MICHELLE

I woke up early, 4 am palang gising na ata diwa ko dahil kami ni Aduke ang in-charge sa breakfast. We decided to cook waffles tapos nagprepare na din kami ng lemon juice ng buong team dahil sinabihan kami ng mga in-charge n med students na makakabuti daw sa amin ang pag inom ng lemonade every trainings para di kami ma-dehydrate aside from drinking gatorade.

"Good morning, good morning!" Ate Justine greeted us with a smile while holding her toothbrush. "Aga niyo today ah," singit naman ni Ate Des. Unti-unti ng nagising ang mga teammates namin pero as usual, nahuli na naman si Ate Kianna. She's always the lazy bum in the team. Si Ate KAF lang ata may kakayahan na bulabugin 'yang si Ate Kianna.

Once I'm done eating, nagdiretso na ako sa bathroom para magprepare. Pagkatapos, nilagay ko na lahat ng kailangan ko sa gym bag. I check the time and it's already 5:48 am and call time namin is 6 am. Grabe, ang gagaling talaga namin Lady Spikers noh? Insert sarcasm.

Everyone would have think na madali lang ang buhay namin mga student - athlete, they always thought that we have a perfect life which is a very big NO. We have to wake up early tapos hahabulin pa namin 'yung mga namiss naming mga school works kapag nasa training kami. Kaya every training I always bring my laptop dahil kapag may break sabay sabay kaming gumagawa ng paperworks. Nakakapagod 'yung every after training pupunta ka pa sa kabilang building to catch your first class in the morning. Swerte mo nalang kung marunong magconsider 'yung prof mo.

"Okay, Spikers. Lezz go!" sigaw ni Ate Kianna at naka-linya kami papunta sa Razon's. I don't know why pero gustong-gusto ni Ate Kianna na nakaline up kami while walking papunta sa Razon's, partida by height pa. Hiyang-hiya naman height namin ni Ate Dawn ah.

Wala pang 6 am noong dumating kami sa Razon's, balita ko male-late daw sila Coach kaya nagkwentuhan lang muna kami. Bettina sat beside me and she nudge me while looking at the different direction.

"Anong balita kay Josh and sa break up thing mo sa kanya?" she asked while peeling out the shell of the boiled egg that she prepared earlier.

"I'm still ignoring him, Betts." I confessed while looking at our phone conversation. "Alam mo, ewan ko kung tanga ka o tanga ka." Bettina rolls her eyes at napa-simangot naman ako sa sinabi niya. "Hindi mo kasi ako naiintindihan, Betts." namumuo na ang luha sa mga mata ko at parang sumisikip ang dibdib ko.

"Paano kita maiintindihan Michelle? Hindi mo naman sinasabi sa akin eh. Kapag nagtatanong ako, hindi mo sinasagot. Bestfriend mo pa ba ako?" my throat almost dried when Bettina raise her voice to me. Yes, nag-aaway kami pero hindi umaabot sa ganto.

I wanted to cry and runaway pero I need to be strong at the same time. Always.

"Betts..." that's the only thing that came out from my mouth.

"I'm sorry. I-I can't tell you right now." I said. Bettina shook her head in disbelief. "Ewan ko sayo Michelle. Pagod na ako. Kausapin mo nalang ako kapag nasa tamang pag-iisip kana," she said before leaving Razon's. Confused. That's how I describe Bettina right now.

She's not alone, I'm more confused about myself.

Sa dinami-dami ng tao sa mundo, bakit ang napunta sa akin ay 'yung isa sa mga perfect na guy. What did I do to the world para magustuhan niya ang isang tulad ko? Supposedly, dapat thankful ako dahil napunta sa akin ang lalaking pinapangarap ng mga babae. He's too good to be true. Hindi naman mahirap mahalin si Josh, I love him so much that's why I'm letting go of him.

We love each other so much and it feels like unhealthy anymore.
