The Encounter

For the first time, I was caught off guard.

Thursday night. I was on my way home, after such a long stressful day. I rode a jeepney to get back to my place. It was a fast ride, from Pasig to Kalentong. It felt like I was in some drag racing circuit. Cool wind in my face, and to think I was alone in the jeep. (Well, technically I had company since the driver was there, so I wasn’t really alone. LOL)  It was already around 9pm, and my mind was practically drifiting again to some parallel universe when someone rode the jeep

And that was when she swept me away.

Oh yes, she did.

Honestly , it was the first time that I ever took notice of a girl. She wore this short skirt, a blue crew neck tee, and this smile that, as much as I hate to admit, made me stare at her for the longest time. She was on the other side of the vehicle. And I had a good view of her from my side. She went near to my place to ask me something. I think it was how to get to Acacia Lane.

Out of the blue, this sudden urge of my testosterone made me speak in such a gentleman way, I still can’t figure out how I did it. It was like, “Shit? Of all the girls that were trying to get me straight, this stranger hits me on the spot!” kinda thing. And then I realized, maybe I can find someone like her, and try getting myself straight. ooooh, I think that was too much for me at the moment.

Maybe I was just being to weird. Maybe I was just overreacting because of this beautiful girl infront of me. Maybe, just maybe, I needed a break and I had to get home fast. Oh yes, the last few minutes that I would get to stare at this wonderful sight, since we were already at Puregold Shaw.

She held her phone, as if she was talking to someone. I was listening to DJMax OST’s on my phone when she signaled the driver to stop. Out in the window, I saw a tall and handsome guy under the street light. She thanked me for the last time and I said welcome. She dropped off and I saw her hold hands with the guy while crossing the street towards the Jollibee branch there.

I totally loathe them. My gosh! 

I flipped my hair, rolled my eyes and thought ‘He’s kinda hot’.
