The First Time We Met

"carissa."

"yes sir? how can I help you?"

"how about ikaw nalang ang mag-handle dito sa new student natin? halika at sumunod ka sa registrars office, isabay mo na siya sa classroom mo at ang pagkaka-alam ko ay classmates kayo." pag eexplain ni sir mateo.

Sir Mateo is one of the 5 heads of our School. if I should describe where we get out knowledge from; our second home. "Prestigious School for the Heir or Heiress" ang ipapangalan ko. wala manlang ka normal normal na tao dito. lahat kami dito ay  malaki ang responsibility at malamang sa malamang ang expectation ng parents, we have to meet it.

First things first.

The name of our School is

"School of Hope and Knowledge"

because as you can see, we are the Children of hope because of the knowledge that they fill us as we learn, as we practice how to use our power as a privileged Child here in the country.

There are 5 headmasters, each of them has their own special ability, capability but one responsibility. at kami 'yon oh and they rank syempre sa money na laman ng bangko nila. which is for me, is stupid. kasi hindi naman nabe-base sa pera lahat. sa totoo lang diba?

na tigil yung train of thought ko nung napatigil si Sir Mateo para buksan  yung pinto ng registration office.

pagkabukas ng pinto, may na-aninag ako. siya yata yung new student? pero bakit siya naka pony tail? naka boy's uniform naman siya? I was curious.

hanggang sa nakita na ako nung head ng registrar's office at pinalapit ako.

"carissa, what nice timing! halika dito at ipapakilala kita kay Zach."

" --Zach this is Carissa, Carissa. this is Zach. he just got here from HongKong, stay with him until he's comfortable and met new friends, okay? he speaks minimal tagalog so, ikaw na bahala." pagpatuloy niya.

I extended my hand for us to shake hands. syempre manners ni ate mo girl diba.

"Carissa, Nice to meet you zach"
pero....
"Zach." HINDI NIYA INEXTEND YUNG KAMAY NIYA.

so syempre ako naman, I decided to just smile it off. "so uhm, zach. shall we?"

"what time does school end?" he asks
"school starts at 8am and ends at 3pm" sagot ko

sabay tingin niya sa watch niya. and I think mga 10 palang ng umaga. since tapos na first class namin, we need to hurry up for the next one. ugh hassle. strict pa naman yung next class namin pero ang bagal niya maglakad. ang bagal niya mag everything!
parang on purpose lahat eh.

"zach? we should hurry up for our next class. I'll tour you later at lunch or after school okay? I need to hand your registration form to our teacher, so she could introduce you."

"okay. lead the way, Miss."

man, this is going to be a long day. I thought to myself.
