“Very impressive background, Miss Belle” the HR department gladly told me
“Thank you for your time” ang sagot ko
At nginitian ko sila
“I supposed you can start here next week” sabi nung isang nag-iinterview
“Thank you” pasasalamat ko ulit
At umalis na ako after kong makapagpaalam. Tama pala talaga ang pag aaply ko dito feeling ko its by fate. I’m so happy kasi after looking for a job natanggap na rin ako.
My name is Belle, 20 years old.
After that job interview, I decided to go back to my apartment. This was a tiring day for me. What I want to do now is to get some rest.
On my way to my apartment room, may nabangga ako at nahulog naman ang bag ko.
Pinulot niya ito agad at nginitian ako.
“Salamat” tipid na sagot ko kasi medyo inaantok na ako, I woke up very early for that job interview and there were lots of applicants that’s why it took a long time for my turn.
“Belle?” gulat na tanong niya.
Who is he? At pano niya nalaman ang name ko? Baka kilala ko siya dati tapos nakalimutan ko na lang. I have no idea, I’m so clueless kasi parang familiar yung mukha niya it seems like nakita ko na siya dati, I’m just having a hard time remembering the exact place.
“Do I know you?” gulat na tanong ko, hindi naman siguro siya stalker.
“It’s me, cry baby” tawag niya sakin sabay tumawa siya.
Teka, cry baby? Isa lang naman ang taong kilala ko na mahilig mang asar na Cry Baby daw ako kasi lagi akong umiiyak. And one more thing, imposible na siya yun kasi the guy I’m referring to was my childhood best friend back in my hometown.
“Adam?” gulat na tanong ko
At tumango siya, niyakap ko naman siya bigla.
“I miss you” sabi ko at alam kong malapit na namang tumulo yung luha ko. It’s been a long time since I last saw him. And as far as I can remember, mga 7 years na rin.
“Don’t tell me na iiyak ka na naman? Cry baby ka talaga, hindi ka pa nagbabago” pang aasar niya
Agad naman akong kumawala sa pagkakayakap ko sa kanya, hindi pa rin talaga siya nag babago. He loves to annoy me every time.
“I hate you, you were always teasing me” sabi ko sa kanya sabay hampas sa braso niya.
“I was just kidding, don’t be too dramatic hindi bagay sayo” dagdag pa niya
“Ewan ko sayo, talk to the hand” sabi ko sabay inirapan ko siya
Natawa na naman siya
“You know what? Let’s go somewhere else, I’m getting bored inside my apartment all day” sabi niya sabay turo niya sa apartment room niya. Teka, he lives next door? Cool! At least hindi na ako mababagot sa apartment. Ang boring kasi. Same old stuffs every day.
“Okay” pag sang ayon ko naman.
“I’ll get my car keys” dagdag ko pa.
“No, I prefer to walk rather than a ride. Para mas matagal pa tayong magkasama, at makapag kwentuhan” sabi niya, I had to say that I was convinced. Sabagay, by next week I’ll be busy with work.
