Today is May 12 and it is the birthday of a friend.
Well, I consider him as a friend as we were able to reconnect a few years ago thru Facebook.
He was a crush of mine?
Well, we had a mutual understanding of sort or we were just friends, I guess.
Okay, I think he was a Puppy love at my very young age of 15 and 16 and 17.
Well, he sort of made my world more colorful.
Anyways, I had a memory of one of his birthday parties, the first and last one that I was able to attend.
He invited me, so, I attended.
I was very excited and nervous and I did all those preparations to look good and smell good,(huh!)
So, we went to his party. He was surprised? Anyways, he greeted me and OMG, I got a peck on my Left Cheek, a seconder one at that or maybe, it was not even a second.
I forgot if I did bring a gift? Maybe not? I was already a big gift (hahaha!).
Anyways, the dreaded part? Yes, the dreaded one—he introduced me to his girlfriend!!! Imagine that!
I kept him in my heart for two years and we were even “pen pals” as he was working abroad already, we had a seven, almost eight years gap—thus my codename for him (CloudEight).
I was shocked and wanted to leave the party right away.
My friends sort of sympathized with me and just tried to cheer me up.
I could not remember if I was able to eat. (hahaha!)
Anyways, we lost contact after that. I had a real boyfriend when I reached 18. That boyfriend of mine is my husband now. (happy endings, huh!)
So, just a couple of years ago, CloudEight and I was able to reconnect. Yeah, we are both matured already. No hard feelings anymore as I realized how a gentleman he was for taking care of my feelings. He did not take advantage of me at all. I must admit, during our first conversations thru messenger, I was sort of joyful.
Today, I remember him.
He passed away a year ago because of a very painful accident. He was in public service. He was just trying to help one of his neighbors but he turned out dead. It was very sad.
I know he is in heaven now. He was a good man.
CloudEight, my prayers for you, now that you are in heaven. I also ask you to watch over me also and be one of my angels.(if it is not too much to ask)
Thank you for all the memories—all the colors that you contributed to my teenage years.
