We were best friends like forever.
We were almost inseparable.
We do things together always.
We share a lot of things others find disturbing for a girl and boy claiming to be just friends.
We know each other's secrets even all our crushes and puppy loves.
We share even our enemies.
If someone dares you for a fight, that person needs to win against me first and vice versa.
We were Bert and Ernie of Sesame Street, Batman and Robin, Puto and Dinuguan.
That's how compatible are chemistry is! Or was as it seems.
Everyone and anyone can't imagine one without the other.
Why did you change so much?
What's with having a girlfriend made you decide to forget that you have a best friend?
I know that what is between you is on a different level that what we shared in the past.
But should it really cost my lack of invite from your wedding? And every event there after?
Can't I still be your best friend even if you are already married?
Have I done something to merit this?
Didn't you know I loved you too?
Yes, I did laugh at the three attempts of you courting me.
But my dear friend, we were just kids then.
You said you'd still wait until we graduate and finish our beloved courses.
And that we'd be best friends until then.
Then we would be lovers.
Where are you now?
You got married.
You had kids.

“Hm?” Nadistract ako sa pagmumuni-muni ko habang pinapanood ko yung magkarelasyon na nakaupo sa tapat ng table namin. Ang sweet nila, kulang na lang pitasin ni guy ang buwan at ibigay kay girl. Napasimangot ako, #ampalaya mode on.
“Punyeta! Makasigaw naman, hindi naman ako bingi!” Angil ko sa kaibigan ko. “Problema mo?” Pagpapatuloy ko. Lumapit sya sa akin at bumulong, “Huwag ka titingin kaagad, pero lingon ka sa may kanan mo…”
“Gwapo ba? Baka naman mukhang chonggo, sayang ang time ko…” Sabay lingon na rin pa slow-mo sa kanan ko. “Tssss. Punyeta ulit! Ang liit ng mundo. Bilisan mo nga kumain dyan nang maka alis na dito! Napaka toxic ng lugar na ito tonight!”
Ipinagpatuloy ng bruha kong kaibigan ang pagkain nya. Nananadya pang binagalan pa nya. Na-tense ako. Peste. Pesteng moment ito! Inabot ko ang pack ng Marlboro at kumuha ng stick ng sigarilyo. Sinsindihan ko, pagkatapos ay pinanood kong kumain ang kaibigan ko.
“Bilisan mo dyan!” Pangungulit ko at lalo pa binagalan ng magaling kong kaibigan. “Affected ka masyado, friend! Eh ano nga...
