Simula “Fiercer!” the photographer demanded at us. Inangat ko ang aking noo at inawang ang bibig. Nilagay ko ang aking kamay sa balikat ni Flyn. “Carrie, chin to the left!” The flashes of blinding lights from the large lightings made me close my eyes for a brief moment. I opened it only to be showered

Kabanata 1 Blown To fill my veins with salt water. To be seen by the moon as I bid goodbye to the life I borrowed. I guess it is not a bad place to die. Unti-unti akong nanghina. Sa pinaghalu-halong dahilan. Sa pagod, gutom, at uhaw. “Ang kinis talaga ng babaeng ito…” A man said

Kabanata 2 Shame “Can I have a copy of it, Doc?” I quickly said to the old doctor in front of me. Dinala ako sa isang bahay tapat lamang ng dalampasigang pinagdaungan ko. The old house decorated and styled in a very spanish way is surrounded by tall coconut trees and wild flowers and grasses.

Kabanata 3 Insult The unclosed issue between us will probably forever stay that way. Kahit ano pang paliwanag at pagtanggap ko sa lahat ng aking kamalian. And here I thought that an emergency couldn’t possibly bring back what happened years ago. An emergency I so want to keep a secret just to forget the past’s

Kabanata 4 Cheap Hindi pwedeng dahilan ang lahat ng insekyuridad ko noon para maging katwiran. At least that’s what I’ve learned. Kasabay ng tunog ng wind chimes habang naglalakad ako sa gawang-molave na sahig ng veranda, naaalala ko ang tunog ng gitarang nagsimula ng isang sayaw. For our Physical Education subject, we were tasked to

Kabanata 5 Pain Takot na takot ako noon. Paulit-ulit kong inimagine kung paano ako makakalusot dahil paniguradong pagnalaman ni Mommy at Daddy ang ginawa ko’y pagagalitan nila ako ng husto. That night, while I was in my room, I couldn’t sleep. Panay ang pakikinig ko kung may kakatok ba sa kwarto. Galit na Daddy o

Kabanata 6 Hate Katatapos lang ng huling schedule ng play namin. It’s already eight in the evening. Wala ni isang minuto kong hindi inisip na baka mapadpad si Mommy at Daddy sa auditorium. Tuwing nasa entablado ako, hindi ko magawang magconcentrate ng mabuti. Panay ang suyod ko sa audience para lang mahanap ang aking mga

Kabanata 7 Hatred “She’s not really you’re girlfriend, right?” I heard Miss Almacen, my tutor’s oddly enticing voice from behind the door. Papasok na sana ako sa library nang bigla kong narinig iyon. The door wasn’t closed kaya isang tulak ko, mga isang pulgada, ay narinig ko na agad ang mga boses. Vincent chuckled under

Kabanata 8 Safe The first three days in Batangas were all about work. My sisters did not grow tired of the sea in front of the mansion. Kaya naman ay hindi rin kami maka alis alis doon. Sa ika apat na araw naman, ‘tsaka nagdesisyong mamasyal sa bayan. Few tourist spots. Few churches we visited

Kabanata 9 Safe I silently thought about the way my life is in tangle now. Gamit ang aking mga paa ay naghukay ako sa buhangin, wala sa sariling nililibang ang sarili sa tabing dagat. The sun is setting and I have not heard from my manager. Even a bit. Vincent is still right. Kung umalis
