Kandila

Gaya ng kandilang sinindihan sa dilim, ikaw ay inilalagay sa isang sitwasyon kung saan ka dapat magsabog ng liwanag. Marami mang pagsubok na susubukang patayin ang apoy mo, may mga kamay namang handang salagin ang hangin sa paligid masiguro lang na patuloy kang mag-aalab.

Kung nasaan ka man ngayon sa buhay mo, isipin mo lagi na one way or another ikaw ay nagsisilbing liwanag para sa iba. Napupuno man ng kadiliman ang paligid mo, ang isip o damdamin mo, ‘wag kang mapagod na hanapin at alalahanin ang dahilan ng kung bakit ka nandyan sa lugar na yan at ang dahilan minsan mong pagliwanag.

They talked about everything like they always used to. She knew this will be their second chance together. She already had this scenario in her head countless times before. 

After having their dinner,  he asked her to dance. They swayed sweetly,  she smelled the same scent and memories came back.  Memories of why they broke up before. 

Back to their table,  he finally said “I’m marrying her next month. We’re pregnant. ” Shocked,  she can’t think of anything to say. 

Who knew?  They’ve been seeing each other again for the past four months.  Who would’ve thought? 

Right,  she’s her best friend. She’s the bridesmaid.
