I almost meet my soul mate. Well, he is not really my soul mate but i like to think of him that way. You can’t blame me I’m a daydreamer ever since. So this is how our story goes.
I was out with my mom to buy The Best of Me book of Nick Sparks. But I get more than I bargained for. There was this guy who caught my eye as I enter the store mainly because he is wearing glasses. I do have a weak heart for Harry Potter look alike. Yes, he caught my eye and thought he was cute but that was it. I moved on with my book searching. Found the Best of Me but decided to stay to browse the classics section. As i was about to move to the next shelf, there he was again. Don’t get excited. We are directly across from each other but just so far away. I noticed him all right but I cared less. As I continue browsing the classics and about to get busy with the titles (I was seating for I was browsing the lowest shelf), a book fell beside me. I didn’t mind it at first for I thougth it was my mom. Then when I look at my left side there he was seating too and browsing the shelf. I panicked of course. I don’t get along with guys so well. They make my heart leap. I switch my focus on the book I was searching, found it and was about to hand it to my mother. But instead of turning to the right where my mother was, I turned to my left and had a peek of him, with his glasses, intently reading. I was lost there for a while, nearly handed him the book I was holding. Luckily, I was conscious once again, turned to my right and gave the book to mom. Then we left.
While heading to the cashier I told my mother “kagulat naman si kuya”. She told me he’s cute. And was about to leave the both of us alone but change her mind for he might be a snatcher. I told her I really hope that she did leave us. The guy looks rich anyway.
As we were finishing up my mom suggested that we look for him. I really was shocked! Why on earth are we doing that? And this came from my mom? Then, yeah, we did just it. I don’t know why I agreed. We search every aisle for him but no luck.
Imagine my disappointment. If my mom wasn’t there he could have talked to me or something. We could have discussed about books. But then again, if he tried to talk to me I would have freaked out and flee the scene. As I have said, I’m no good with guys around.
Discussing the incident with my mom actually fed my fantasy. She was as excited as I am. She was like “Akala ko makikita mu na yung soulmate mu eh. Yung mahilig magbasa ng libro” I was like “oo nga eh.. Nakasalamin pa siya and he’s interested with classics pa”. But at the end of the day she told me, if he really is your soul mate you’ll see him again.
I know this is one of my stupidest blog but hey a girl can dream once in a while. Just enjoyed a carefree conversation with my mom.
I really am not sad for Given. I’m pretty much sure that she’s up there with God already. She will be eternally happy in paradise. If her soul’s still with us, not to worry, soon she’ll be in heaven. Tons is praying for her and are willing to continue fighting for her.
I’m sad for her family, and friends, and for every life that she has touched. They have lost a lot. They lost a daughter, a sister, a niece, a cousin, a friend, and the country lost another bright mind. I do not know her personally but my heart seems to burst every time I think about what had happened to her. I cannot fathom how painful it is to those who are close and dear to her.
But I’m sadder for her perpetrators who guaranteed themselves a ticket to hell. How can they be possessed with too much evil? How weak are they to surrender their souls to evilness? I’m not sure if justice on earth would be enough to punish them for what they did. I personally want them dead. I know it is wrong to judge for we are equally humans but I can’t help myself. Anyways, I believe justice will be rightfully served, maybe not in this world. They will pay for it. I know someone who is undeniably just.
”To all the men in UPLB: Wag lampa. Let’s protect, take care, and respect women. Ihatid natin sila pauwi, samahan maglakad pag gabi na. Classmate, orgmate, dormmate man yan. Problema yung iba satin mas maarte pa sa mga sisses natin, man-up! To the women, wag din masyadong pasaway, you are the crown of creation, don’t let yourself be in potentially harmful situations, accept the offer na ihatid kayo pauwi/samahan.”
