Rebo. part - 1
every so often you would call up on the office phone on afternoons with petty inquiries. so trivial i sometimes thought you were just calling to hear me. thinking, you probably just missed my company. i was about to ignore those things running through my mind when you called again another usual afternoon..
"hello, ben. kinsa kauban nimo karon diha sa office?"
"ako lang. boss came. and as usual, was out again. murag dili na to xa mubalik. i guess..."
"okay, pwede ko nimo hulatan? muanha ko karon diha."
"why man?" i wondered.
"wala lang. naa lang koy tuyo." i felt a little strange with the way you sounded.
"sure. okay. ayaw lang kaayo pagdugay." still confused why he wanted to drop by.
he was one pleasant guy. rumor has it that two girls in his high school fought over him for his attention. yes his pleasantness was quite attractive. but it was weird because at the beginning, i never find him that way. we were then classmates. i got to see & talk to him practically almost everyday. he might be attractive but i can only see us together as friends. nothing more. nothing special. no expectations. that was all i thought.
to be continued...
