|| One: My New Found Special Friend ||
Unang araw ngayon ng pagpasok ko sa bagong university na kung saan ako pine-enrol ulit ni mama.
And i wore a hearing aid so that it won't be a hassle to do sign language which i know only few can understand it.
And while waiting for our homeroom adviser, naguusap-usap yung mga bagong kaklase ko tungkol sa isang babae na palaging nasa top first simula noong freshmen year hanggang ngayong senior year na kung saan expected na naman daw na mag top first o valedictorian.
They were all talking bad about her, lalong lalo na yung top second daw na kung saan points lang naman ang lamang sa kanya ng top second.
She was talking about how the top first got her place because of her dad donated new buildings and rooms in exchange for points para makalamang sa top second, which i knew was just all lies because i can read her mind thinking about all different kinds of lies just to make the top first look so bad to her classmates.
Nagsibalikan silang lahat sa kani-kanilang upuan noong dumating na yung homeroom teacher namin.
She was talking about the project we're going to pass; which is due the next two weeks, after introducing me to the class, and i knew they were all uninterested.
And i can't really focus on what she was talking afterwards because this girl beside me; she was late and she just came in a while ago, was thinking about random things, and i can't stop myself listening to it.
What is love?
How does someone feel love?
Does forever really exists?
What if the earth suddenly stops turning? No. Stop thinking. I need to concentrate.
Or maybe it is now slowly turning and the scientists are just not telling us so we dont panic?
I must research and have a experiment about this.
What if it really is slowly turning? What should i do? Please stop thinking.
Should i tell them?
Ugh, im hungry.
What should i eat later?
What if i mix ketchup and soysauce? Please sto- WHAT? Ketchup and soysauce? EW.
And dip my fried fish to it?
Isang oras din ang pag-iisip ng seatmate ko ng mga weird at walang kwentang bagay.
It was like she does not want to listen to what our homeroom teacher was saying.
Pero it annoys me so much kasi i need to listen to what our homeroom teacher, i need to graduate with honors...
I was about to go out and have a snack when these group of girls who was talking about the top first came to me and introduced theirselves.
"Hello, I'm Chana Marie Sy." Sabi ng babaeng top second daw kanina, and she really look like a bitch up close.
And i'm not overexaggerating by saying that.
And it looks like she's the leader of these three girls.
"And she's Jenny Aira Santos." Turo niya sa babaeng nasa kaliwa niya.
Yung babaeng ito naman ay parang sumusunod lang naman kay Chana na 'to for popularity.
"This one's Zyka Jun Reyes." Turo na naman niya sa babaeng nasa kanan niya.
"And, FYI, the reason why we came here in front of you and introduced ourselves is not that we want to be friends with you-"
"Don't be such a feeler." Putol ni Jenny sa sinasabi ni Chana, na kung saan nagulat siya. Now she has guts to cut me off to what i am saying? Isip ni Chana.
"Ooops. Sorry." Paumanhin ni Jenny kay Chana dahil binigyan siya nito ng matalim na tingin.
"As i was saying. It's not that we want to be friends with you, but it's because as the president of this class, and also the top second, i'm obliged to welcome you here." Emphasizing the word 'President' and 'Top Second'.
"And, FYI, i hate you from the first time i saw your face, and i know there's something about you that might piss me off. So, better be careful of everything you do." Natakot ko ba siya? Well, she must be, i'm good at scaring other people off, even these two dumb girls beside me.
Bigla siyang tumawa pagkatapos niyang isipin na natakot niya daw ako.
Well, to be honest, i was scared at first. But when i knew that she was just trying to scare me so that i would not try to mess up with her, well, she's wrong, not that i'll jump out to her right now, but when she really get in my nerves, why not? Right?
"Why'd you laugh??" tanong ni Zyka sa kanya.
"Nothing, silly." Sagot nito kay Zyka sabay talikod niya sa akin at sumunod naman yung dalawang alipores niya sa likod.
I just shrugged off my shoulders and went to the cafeteria alone.
Syempre alone, i still don't have friends here, and i think i could not have one, they're all pretending here to like everyone or their friends even though they don't, then they'll talk bad about them when they're not around.
"How do you think mathematicians knew about the pi being an unending number? Is it really unending or shall we call it, infinite? Are you curious about it too?" Biglang lapit sa akin ng seatmate ko kanina, yung weird. Obvious naman 'di ba?
"Huh?" sagot ko sa kanya. Not that i didn't understand what she said but because i was shocked for asking me a random question about math, pi to be exact.
"Nothing. Camille Joyce Villareal by the way." she introduced herself to me.
And the crowd, including the cafeteria staffs, inside and near the cafeteria stopped everything what they were doing, and started talking about something, and of course, it's us.
Camille Joyce, who she prefers to be called Camyce, was really a good company.
And despite knowing that my name is now well-known in the campus because of her, it didn't stop me to be friends with her.
She really has an amazing mind, it was really a brilliant one, but weird, weird enough to make anyone avoid her.
And i'd rather stay with Camyce, who's being frank and being real with herself even though weird than to be with girls who is only pretending to be someone they're not.
I also knew that day that she was the 'oh so famous' (i qouted Chana's words) top one of our batch and the running valedictorian.
"What do you think is love?" Biglang lapit at tanong sa akin ni Camyce habang hinihintay namin yung next teacher namin.
"I don't know." seryosong sagot ko sa kanya.
"Then, what is hate?" Tanong ulit nito sa akin.
"Hate is to feel intense or passionate dislike for someone." Sagot ko sa tanong niya. Then she looked at me like she was judging me.
"Last question. How does someone define hate but not love? Mas nangingibabaw na ba ngayon sa mga tao ang hate kaysa sa love?" Curious na curious na tanong nito sa'kin. How can most people define hate but not love? I'm really curious about why. I thought she would answer differently than the others.
Then she shrugged her shoulders off at tumingin na sa harapan dahil dito na yung teacher.
Not that she wants to listen to the lectures.
And then there she goes again. Thinking about random things.
The day ended na wala akong naintindihan sa mga lectures dahil kay Camyce, instead na dapat mainis ako dahil ang kulit niya, ay i grew fond of her, dahil ang interesting talaga ng mga tanong niya sa kanyang isipan at mga iniisip nito.
I threw myself to my bed thinking that senior year will be much more interesting than i expected. Then there i heard some thoughts. No, please not again.
