Kinwento sakin ni Lola Lucy kung bakit namatay si Carl, pangalan nung lalaki, kwento nya sakin ay matagal na daw nakatira dito yung lalaki. Magtatatlong taon na rin yata. Sa Moon University rin pala ito nagaaral. Lagi daw syang kinikwentuhan ni Carl nang kung ano ang nangyari sa araw nya. Minsan nga kung ano-ano na lang daw basta may maikwento lang. Sabi pa nya sakin ay kay Carl daw talaga yung pusa kaya lang nung namatay si Carl naiwan daw itong mag-isa kaya kinupkop na lang daw nya. Sabi pa nya ay magiisang taon na daw patay si Carl at bukas nga daw ang death anniversary nito.

"Ano po ba ang nangyari kay Carl?" napabuntong hininga si Lola Lucy sa tanong ko.

"Tanda ko pa nung araw na yon. Dinalhan pa nga nya ako ng hinog na mangga. Alam nya kasing paborito ko ito. Pagkabigay nya sakin nung mangga ay umalis din kagad sya. Tinanong ko kung saan sya pupunta ang sabi nya ay sa langit daw." pinahid ni Lola Lucy ang luhang kanina pa lumalabas sa mata nya.

"Langit? Alam po nya na mamamatay sya?" nailing si Lola Lucy sa sinabi ko.

"Hindi. Pupunta kasi sya sa babeng nililigawan nya. At para sa kanya langit iyon. Ilang buwan na syang nanliligaw sa babae kaya lang mukhang pinapaasa lang sya nung babae pero etong si Carl ay matigas ang ulo ayaw paawat. Tapos nung kinagabihan nalaman ko na lang na nasa hospital ito at critical ang kondisyon. Ang sabi nila ay nabugbog daw ng mga siraulo sa daan. Sobrang laking pinsala ang natamo nya."

"Kinailangan pa syang operahan sa ulo dahil yun ang pinakanapuruhan. Pagkatapos nun ay wala na akong nabalitaan sa kanya. Hindi ko alam kung nakaligtas ba sya o ano. Hanggang sa isang araw may lalaki akong nakausap. Kinukuha nila ang mga gamit ni Carl. Ang sabi sakin nung lalaki ay hindi daw nakaligtas si Carl sa operasyon dahil bigla daw tumigil ang pagtibok ng puso nito. Kawawang bata. Sobrang bait pa naman nya. Kung nasaan man sya ngayon ay sana masaya sya."

Time Check: 10:00pm

Natapos ko na lahat ng kailangan kong gawin. Pinayagan naman ako ni Lola Lucy na gamitin yun mga gamit na nandito since wala naman daw gagamit. Nalinis ko na ang buong apartment at naayos ko na rin ang mga gamit ko. Pagkatapos ay kumain na rin ako. As usual, cup noodles. I guess I need to feed myself for a week with just a simple cup noodles. Well, better than nothing. Wala akong pera ngayon kaya kailangan kong magtipid. Sa tingin ko makakakain lang ako ng matinong pagkain after a week. Every weekend kasi ang sahod ko sa pagiging assistant librarian.

After kong makakain at makapaligo ay nahiga na ako. Kinuha ko yung laptop ko. Yeah, shocking right? I have a laptop but I don't have money. How ironic. Anyway, gift kasi sakin ng parents ko to nung nag-seventeen ako. And after a day my parents passed away. Parang pinalampas muna ni God na matapos ang Birthday ko bago Nya kunin ang parents ko.

My parents burned to death along with our house. I was at the playground that time. I used to spend my leisure time in the playground. Reading teenfiction books with an earphones plugged in and my favorite music was playing. That's life for me. No worries. No problems. Until I saw a grayish-black smoke coming from our house and the deafening sound of a loud sirens coming from many firetrucks and ambulances. I started from zero that time. Lucky for me my laptop was with me that time. And that's the only thing that left from me.

Pinunasahan ko ang luha ko na kanina pa pala tumutulo. Sa tuwing maaalala ko ang nanyari dati sobrang nalulungkot ako. Laging sumasagi sa isip ko ang nakaraan. Siguro totoo yung sinasabi nila na kapag sobrang saya mo daw asahan mong may mangyayaring nakakalungkot sayo pagkatapos. Kaya minsan hindi ako nagpapakasaya ng todo-todo. Mahirap na.

In-on ko na lang yung laptop ko. Manunuod na lang ako ng mga movies na nandito. Buti nalang ay nakahiram akobsa kakilala ko ng usb na may mga naka-save na na movies. Nilagay ko na yung usb at inantay na magload ito. Nang matapos na ay tiningnan ko isa-isa yung mga movies na nakasave.

Sinister

The Hill

Paranormal Activity

The Ring

Coming Soon

Langya! Puro mga horror to a! Ano ba yan! Sabi ko yung mga Rom-Com eh! Nakuu. Si Ivy talaga kahit kailan lutang. Alangan namang panuorin ko to e gabi na. Baka mamaya e. Ay ewan. Don't get me wrong. I don't believe in ghosts. Ghosts aren't real. They are just bunch of stories that made by the elders to scare their children when they are so stubborn. Just like my mom. Great. I remembered her again. The pain still pangs my heart whenever I remember them.

Sigh.

I was about to close the window-(An: The windows in the laptop. Not in the house.  XD)-when I noticed another movie on the far away corner.

Warm Bodies

Na-curious ako sa title. Siguro naman hindi ito yung mga SPG type na movies. I clicked the movie. I ready myself to stop the movie if ever that it's some kind of SPG movie. But to my relief it's not. It's a zombie thingy movie. But the zombie doesn't  looked like a zombie. I mean, he's a zombie but compared to other zombies, he look like a normal human.

The thing is, he's growling and it's their way to communicate to other zombies. Then one day, he ate the brain of one guy and the information, which was in the brain transferred to him. Even the thought of loving someone transferred to him. So absurd and at the same time romantic. Well, except to the fact that he was a freaking zombie. Yes, it was romantic. He did his best to proved them that he's changing. He's changing into human. A normal human.

But still, it's so absurd that I couldn't get over with it. And there's this one question that keeps on bugging  me. Does he really love the girl? I mean, in the first place he just ate the brain of the other guy which was the girl's boyfriend, right? So na-transfer lang sa kanya yung thought na mahal nya si girl. Tama ba ako? Hindi ko alam kung hindi ko lang naintindihan yung movie o sadyang inaantok lang ako dahil past 12 narin? Ay ewan. Don't mind me. Anyways, sorry to those who love that movie. I like the movie too.  Please don't hate me. It's just that I don't believe in that kind of movie. Specially when zombies involved. Ugh! Enough of this. May kanya-kanya tayong paniniwala. Pinatay ko na yung laptop at nahiga. Tiningnan ko ulit yung orasan ko.

12:12am.

Great. Masyado akong nalibang sa pinapanuod ko. Sigh. Kailangan ko pang gumising ng maaga bukas dahil kailangan kong magpa-enroll for sure maraming tao bukas dahil last day of enrollment na. I was about to fall asleep when I felt someone's gaze fixed on me. I opened my eyes to see what or who it was.

"What the hell?!"
