I was walking mindlessly not knowing where I'm heading to. Para 'kong isang bangkay na naglalakad. I don't know what I should feel anymore pagkatapos ng mga pangyayari. Mom called after she received my text na I won't back out and will fight for my place. She got mad. Threw a lot of hurtful words. Masakit, akala ko kasi  nung una sanay na ako pero 'di pa rin pala.

Hindi ko lang alam kung bakit sobrang big deal na makakalaban ako ni Dhane. I mean, ganon ba ako kalakas na kalaban para mabother sila ng ganon? To the point na pinalayas ako sa bahay through a fucking phone call. Parang wala lang ako sa pamilya nila. Ang dali lang nila akong itaboy sa buhay nila.

Sobrang bigat at sakit sa pakiramdam na 'yong sarili mong nanay hindi ka sinusuportahan sa mga bagay na gusto mong gawin pero 'yong mga taong 'di mo naman kapamilya sila pa 'yong todo suporta sa'yo.

Before the election sobrang pinanghinaan talaga ako ng loob kasi syempre anak pa din ako na naghahanap ng suporta at pagmamahal galing sa ina. Pero bakit ganon? Ang simple lang naman ng gusto ko pero hindi pa nila maibigay sa akin at pinagkakait pa nila.

I was extremely thankful though dahil sa mga kaibigan kong laging nandyan para sa akin. Na kahit sobrang shitty ng buhay ko 'di sila nagsasawa sa akin. Nananatili lang sila sa tabi ko, sumusuporta at gumagabay. Minsan para ko na silang mga ate at kuya.

The news about the election results disseminate quickly. I wasn't expecting that I'm gonna win, though I know that I did my best.

At first, I felt like ang dami kong tao na nadisappoint because of losing pero after hearing the news about the vote buying thing? It made me mad. I mean we all just wanted a fair and clean fight. We all worked hard for this after all. Tapos ano? malalaman namin na may nandaya at hindi lumaban ng patas. The school committee should definitely do something about this.

"Hey Prima!"

Hearing his voice made me stopped walking. Tinignan ko 'yong lalaking nasa likod ko. Juan was there walking towards my direction with that lazy smile of him. I was shocked nung inakbayan niya ako and just walked non stop.

"Hoy baliw ka ba? Ang daming tao!" I protested and tried removing his arm on my shoulder pero baliwala lang 'yon dahil mas malakas siya sa akin, diretso pa din siya sa paglalakad at paghila sa akin hanggang sa marating namin 'yong parking lot.

Nakakahiya. Ang daming taong nakatingin sa amin habang naglalakad kanina. Mababash na naman ako niyan ng mga fans nito sa Twitter.

"Where are we goin'?" agad kong tanong ng parehas na kaming nasa loob ng kotse niya but I didn't get any answer.

"Shet may part time job pa pala ako Juan!" I panicked but Juan on the other side just started the engine.

"Saan mo ako dadalhin ha?" I asked hoping na may sagot na akong makuha mula sa kaniya.

"Somewhere and 'bout your part time job, I gotchu" he answered and winked at me as he started to maneuver his car.

"Bulol mo saan tayo pupunta?"

"Can you please stop cursing? Just wait, okay?" I just rolled my eyes and stayed quite.

Wala akong kaalam alam kung saan kami papunta at hindi ko na sinubukang alamin because Juan kept ignoring my questions earlier so I didn't bother asking again.

I gasped nang makita ko kung saan ako dinala nitong si Juan.

Enchanted Kingdom.

"Ohmygad" was all I can say. I have never been in this place since the day I was born dahil 'di naman ako sinasama nila mama pag umaalis sila nila Dhane at Tito Ricardo. Seeing the rides and hearing the people shouting mula sa loob dito sa labas made me so ecstatic.
