Friendship. That was all I wanted to have with my best friend, Sien. Noong una ay matindi ang pananaw ko na kaibigan lang ang kaya naming maituri sa isa't isa dahil doon kami magkakasundo, we're best at being friends only. I don't want to cross the borders of my feelings. Because love, if failed, ruins friendship.
Hindi ko naman plinanong tumaliwas sa pananaw ko, e. Pero nangyari. I loved him, but he didn't reciprocate his feelings. Madaling magmahal, mahirap makuha ito pabalik. I wasn't the one of the lucky one's who was loved back by her best friend.
Come college, we drifted away. Lumayo na ako para makalimot, pero siya itong balik ng balik. Habol ng habol. Hanggang sa nauwi kami sa isang pustahan.
"If our group wins you'll let yourself love me again, Cazandra Mae."
"And if my group wins?"
"Ikaw, how are you willing to gamble?"
"If my group wins, you'll have to leave me alone."
And so we gambled for love.
