Just One Date
If houses have termites and rice fields have rats, I, on the other hand, have Clark Ethan.
Siya ang peste sa buhay ko.
A damn good-looking pest, my cousin would say. But still a pest nonetheless.
He's practically everywhere, every time, almost everyday. His mere presence pisses me off and although I've made it very clear to him that we can't be more than friends, he just don't seem to get it. I don't know what else to do so he'll leave me alone.
Until he came up with a very tempting deal.
Just one date at tatantanan na niya ako. One date kapalit ng katahimikan ko. I'll finally get rid of him after just one date.
That's why I took the risk.
But the most unexpected thing happened.
After that one date, I came to see him in a different light. I was able to discover the other side of him that I haven't paid attention to before. I realized he's not a jerk after all. He has Prince Charming potentials that I never knew existed. He's a Knight in Shining Armor waiting to happen.
And all of a sudden, I found myself wanting to see him again, aching to be with him again.
But he kept his promise. True to his words, I never saw his face again after that.
I never heard from him again.
He seemed to have moved on. I probably should, too.
Problem is...ako naman ang inlove.
