A: Hey. Kamusta?
B: Hi. I'm good.
A: Seems like you're doing okay with your life lately, ah!
B: Oo naman.
A: You're at work?
B: Nope. I'm on my way to downtown. Hahanapin ko yung kaluluwa ko. In English, soul searching.
B: What? Totoo naman ah.
A: HAHAHA. I really admire your dry wit!
B: I'm serious.
A: Well, I still find it funny. I can imagine your face.
B: Hay grabe ambagal ng jeep na sinasakyan ko ngayon. Parang inassemble lang to kanina sa talyer. I'm dying.
B: You're not helping. I might alight soon. Baka magtatransform 'to to several pieces.
A: HAHAHA. Grabe kakabagin na ata ako rito sa katatawa. Kainis ka.
A: I miss you!
A: Ay, read-zoned lang ako. Uulitin ko. I miss you.
B: Are you sick? Okay ka lang?
A: No, I'm dead serious. Miss you!
B: Heto nanaman tayo.
B: Ito. Claiming that you miss me. You know what's hard? I told you that exact statement years ago. And what did you answer? Nothing. To be honest with you, I got hurt. I got hurt after the first time we met. I thought we'd go the next level after so many years of communicating online. I know I'm partly responsible with the way you treated me because I was a jerk when we met the first time. I know I spent most of the time on my phone rather than having deep conversations with you. Truth is, I was really shy and I can't just fight the inner awkwardness in me and I truly regret it. However, I believe you don't have the right to just leave me in limbo. Umasa ako. Nauwi pala sa wala ang lahat. What happened? Are you just bored? Am I just your 'flavor of the month'? Please let me know. I need answers.
