Note: I can’t get this out of my head! I will finish the last chapters of Suddenly Love, promise. I just thought of posting this one, this evening!:-)
Maya tried to bury her head under the pillow, hoping that it would drown out the ringing of her mobile phone. She barely managed to fall asleep and now someone wants her attention in the middle of the night.
“Okay, okay. Arrrrggghhh, sino ba kasi ang nakaimbento ng cellphone!” Maya complained to herself and grabbed her phone from the side table. She checked who was calling, and got worried when she saw the name.
“Hello, Ruby. Napatawag ka?” Maya asked her best friend, and colleague.
“Maya” was all Ruby managed to say. All Maya can hear from the other end of the line was her friend crying. “Ruby, anong nangyari? Kalma lang. Don’t cry, please.”
Ruby tried to control her tears and then started telling Maya haltingly that she caught her boyfriend Eric with another girl inside their apartment.
“Maya, siya na nga ang nahuli ko, siya pa ang galit. He told me, kasi raw wala na akong time sa kanya.” Ruby said. “I just walked out on him, and left the apartment. Ang sakit-sakit, Maya.“
“Nasaan ka ba ngayon? “ Maya asked, as she started looking for a pair of jeans, then started dressing.
Maya saw Ruby huddled in a corner, in their favorite coffee shop, eyes puffy from crying, when she got there half an hour later. She embraced her friend as she cried on her shoulders. This was not the first time Ruby had done so. She kept ‘falling in love’, wanting to be love, with so much love to give, but unfortunately, she ended up with losers.
While Maya was comforting her friend, she saw a good–looking chinito guy glancing at them. Their eyes met. Her heart beat faster for no reason at all. She averted her gaze and the next time she checked, he was looking at his iPad screen. She and Ruby left the place soon after, and as they stood, she didn’t see the chinito guy gazing at her.
Maya brought Ruby to her place. She put her in the guest room. Ruby fell asleep as soon as her head hit the pillow. Her friend’s system seemed to have just shut down and Maya can’t blame her, with all the emotional turmoil she had experienced this evening. Poor Ruby. Maya wish that Ruby will find a guy who would love her with all his heart.
Ruby. Her mom. Her sister. All unlucky in love! It made Maya wary of relationships. She is afraid to cross the line. Many have courted her, but not a single one of them managed to sway her. Not one of them made her heart beat faster. Except…Oh, she wouldn’t think of that chinito guy. What is the likelihood that she will see him again anyway! Besides, he is a total stranger. For now, she still does not see any good or compelling reason to be in a relationship. She know it is irrational to shy away from a relationship because of what other people experienced, as each person and the circumstances they found themselves into are different from one person to another. However, she had seen the downsides of what love can do to a person. Maybe, maybe, with the right guy, she would be willing to risk loving. But is there really a right guy, and how would she know if he is the one’? She sighed, then tried to capture lost sleep. She has an early flight tomorrow.

Hello Ms. Antigone…ur new? ikaw siguro ang sinasabi sken na bago at mahusay ding writer….maybe u started nung time na naka *sacrificial mode* ako at d nagbabasa o nanonood ng BCWMH tv…(April to July), i am in contact with some writers (like Kris, Ms. Con, CJ, Maltz and AttyMayi) thru FB and emails….and also most of the ADIKS…who updates me of whats been going on in WP…someone mentioned na me bagong writer daw at magaling (cant remember kong ‘writers’ ba un hehe)….anyways, i like the plot, at kaabang-abang ang kwento mo….thank you and GOD bless!
#11 by Antigone on August 19, 2014 - 7:53 AM
Hi Ms. Myrna. Yes, I’m a new FF writer. I only started with ‘Doors’ last July 3. I have seen your posts before in FFs I enjoyed reading too. Certified adik din ako sa BCWMH. Maliban sa episodes at kung ano-ano pa na related sa show, I also read all of the FF I can get hold of. Then I thought of trying my hand at writing one. Ilang buwan ko ring pinag-isipan ang public blog! 🙂 Thank you for the feedback dito sa new story, also to SL chapters. 🙂

when you have the talent….and the guts to start with something…it will come out flowing….at maganda ang resulta…sana biyayaan ka pa ng new ideas for new plots….i like d way you write…me mga authors kasi na kahit anong ganda umaabot ng 54 ang episodes…nawawalan ako ng momentum sa stories na binabasa ko at nawawala ang gana ko….like when i was young and reading Mills & Boon ay sus pag maikli – yan carry pero pag makapal…as in i browse the pages to look for dialogues lang ng bida and yun tapos agad ang kwento hahaha…kasi prang nagiging dragging na ang story pag mahabang sobra…kaya nga i am not a fan of thick pocketbooks eh hehe….so since ngayon lang kita nakausap – i’d like to take this opportunity to welcome u as an added fave writer ko haha….GOD bless u with many more ideas to come!!!

Thank very much again for the support. I enjoy reading romance novels too. Short and very thick ones. Easier now to carry because of e-book readers. Many thanks again, also for reading ‘Doors’. 🙂
