Down from the hill came their rollercoaster ride to what they assumed is their "forever". They do believe in forever. When they love, they give it their all.
Down to the world go them. Naturingang 'Phenoms' sa hard court, but what are they really outside the court? What would they be when they face the reality of such a cruel world?
Will they still remember how the bright blue eagles fly in the skies, continuously chasing after the clouds just like what they did inside the court? Will they still be able to apply the principle they got from once being those "bright blue eagles" to survive the whirlwinds of fate?
Through joys and tears, through the laughing years, will they still remember their heartbeats as their battle song?
Win or lose in the battle with playful Cupid, through their ups and downs, will they still choose to stay with each other?
How will these bright blue eagles fly and survive against all the storms waiting far ahead, for them to reach their forever? Will they still flap their wings as mighty as they could amidst the turmoil they prudently caught sight of? Or will they just turn around and stay in their comfort zones, not being able to see the rainbow beyond the clouds?
Down from the hill, down to the world go I, rememb'ring still how the bright blue eagles fly. Through joys and tears, through the laughing years, this is my battle song. Win or lose, it's the school we choose, this is the place where we belong...
