The Diary

It was jazz an ordinary day.
The skies were clear, the birds were chipping. Angganda-ganda ng araw! Nasa SM ako noon at katatapos ko lang mamili nggroceries. Timing naman nasafoodcore si Angel Locsin, nagpro-provoke ng movie nya.Grabe, andaming fans,pull-packed talaga! Dahil fans nya rin ako, nakipilana rin ako.

Then suddenly, out of the loo, may bumulong sa akin ng: 'Indaaayyyyy. ..'
Huh? It sounded like a familiar sound. Who can it be now? 'Dodong!' sigaw ko.
Napalakas yata voice ko. Kasi the other fans turned their backs to theirbehind at napatingin sa amin. Sabi ko 'Sorry, I didn'tmean to be loud andproud.' Hinawakan na lang ni Dodong ang kamay ko atlumayo kami from the crowd.

'Kamusta na Inday? Do you come here open?' tanong nya. 'Bihira lang, Dodong. I'm just droppings by. Ethnicang schedule ko eh' sabiko. Memories came flushing in my mind. How can I forget toremember Dodong? Siya na may mata ni Piolo, dimple ni Aga, at bigote ni Rex Cortez. He's everywoman's dreamboat. I was just starting my tour of dutykay ate noon nangunang makilala ko si Dodong. Contraction worker siyasa ginagawang bahay satapat namin. Naging kami for a while then after thatwere not an itemanymore.

'Tanghali na Inday. What did you say we have lunchtogether?' tanong niDodong.
'I don't mine' sagot ko. Sa restaurant, nilapitan kaagad kami ng waiter.'What's your odor sir?' sabinung waiter kay Dodong. 'Do you have porkshop?' tanong ni Dodong. 'Yes sir' sabi nito. 'Our porkshop with a resistanceto the teeth of boastof our chef. Domestic careful selection of pork withlittle fat of femaleliking is used. The exquisite cooking which repeatedtrial and error and wascompleted. It also has healthy vegetables with saladfeeling fully' dagdagpa niya.

'And you mam?' sabay tingin naman sa akin. Hmmm..mukhang masarap yung porkshop. Pero I'm cuttingdown on my carbon kayapinigilan ko. 'I'll just have water, thanks. Liquidate diet ako eh.'sagot ko.

Pagkatapos kumain, nagyaya si Dodong manood ng sine.Teka teka, this isgoing too far. Besides, it's a long, long, way to run. 'Reality chess, Dodong. May asawa na ako, si Jay. As amother of fact, I'mhappily married' pagmamalaki ko. 'Di na pwede yung tulad ng dati. Sorry pero I didn'texpect you still havemore feelings than I expected. I don't want yougetting the way. Past isfast. Therefore, cause and defect.' dagdag ko pa.

Tumahimik sya. Parang may language barrel na namagitansa amin. The secondsthat passed seemed like fraternity. Di nagla-on,nagsalita na rin sya. 'I don't care less!' sigaw ni Dodong.
Shocks, give me a brake! The nerd ng taong ito parasigawan ako! To thinkit's his other woman that caused our separation to part.

Kinabahan na ako. I felt speedbumps all over my bodyand was having panicattach. Tinalikuran ko siya at nagmadali akong lumakadpalayo. Pero sumunodpa rin siya like a monkey on my butt. Hanggang samakakita ako ng securityguard. Biglang nawala si Dodong.

'Excuse me kuya, pwedeng magtanong?' sabi ko sa mamangguard. 'Of course miss, I can help you with my pleasure.'sagot niya. 'Saan po ba ang exit? Could you point me to the righterection? I got lostin my eyes.' 'Diretso lang.'sabi niya. 'Then turn right anytimewith care.'
'Thanks for your corporation' sabi ko.

Buti na lang nandun si kuya. Pero saglit lang, I smellsomething peachy. AsI turned, nakita ko na namang nakasunod si Dodong!Delaying static lang palakanina ang pag-disappear nya.
'Nyahahaha! You can run but you can hide, Inday. Nomatter where you go,there you are!' pananakot nya.

Oh no, is this the end? This is too much, I feel degradable. My world started falling afar.
Then suddenly, Jay come from behind! Dodong was caughtto the act! In the matter of minute, it's all over. I'm out of arm's way.

'Thanks Jay, my love. But how did you.?' bago pa manako matapos, sabi niya:
'I was in the neighborhood. Fans din ako ni Angel eh.I heard you shout butat first I didn't give it a thought. Pero nang makitako kayong magkahawakng holding hands, then I give it a thought. I know something is a missed.'

From then on, Dodong did not brother me again. Infact, he didn't evensister me. As in platonic at wala na talaga.

Pero kami ni Jay, heto, shoot sailing pa rin angrelationship. Lalo pangayon, open na kami sa isa't-isa at walang exhibitions. I feel I'm on cloudline.

~~ Hope this page from the diary brought a little smile on your face.
