Oookaaaayy. This is not going to be a long post.
Seems that I’ve forgotten already how to blog.
But anyway, regarding my previous one-liner, here’s the thing.
This forced engineer…
is in love.
Holy crap, no, infatuated. Oh, shit. I don’t want to admit to myself how attached I’ve become with this person so that I may prevent myself from sinking deeper.
But oh well, there it goes.
Now, here’s the other thing.
I had no idea…
he was hitting on my friend.
HAHA. I found it funny and frustrating in some way. Gah.
Then, being a small world it is, he probably had no idea that the girl and I were friends, and that we were talking about him. (Yes, I told the girl I liked him, and said that I didn’t want some guy to get in between our friendship, so I decided to just let it go.)
Until came Friday afternoon, my phone rang. BTW, I had to get a new SIM because stupid Globe is a fucker for life. So, it was him. I was hesitant to answer because 1) I thought it was just a dropped call and 2) I kept on thinking about my friend whenever I think of him. But, the stupid me forgot that my phone automatically accepts a call when it’s slid up. So…
Me: (1…2…3…) Hello?
Me: (1…2…3…) Oh, bakit?
Him: Wala, bakit, masama bang tumawag?
Me: Eh bakit ka nga tumawag?
Etc, etc. until…
Me: Oo, ano ka ba, hindi mo maalala?
Him: Sorry, I forgot. I’ll just make it up to you.
Me: Yeah? Like how?
Him: Go out with me on a date.
Me: (1….2…3…) So you think that THAT can compensate for you forgetting?
Him: I don’t know. But I just want to go out with you.
Me: Oh… You don’t have to.
Him: Consider it a courtship thing.
Him: What? Okay, sige, I got it, busted na ko.
Me: I can’t go out with you.
Him: Why not? Are you engaged to someone?
Me: No. But I am aware that you are seeing C.
Him: (1…2…3…4…5…) Not anymore.
Me: It’s okay, I know about it. We already talked.
Him: What did she say?
Me: That she likes you.
Him: She doesn’t like me na.
Me: And so you’re turning to me?
Him: No! (sighs) Okay, listen. Nauna ko siyang makilala, we got to talk and spend more time together. But had I known you first, there wouldn’t be C and me.
Me: I don’t want things like this ruin our [C and mine] friendship.
Him: Okay, I’ll clear things up with her.
Me: And tell her what exactly?
Him: That I like you.
I have no clue how to deal with this stuff. Okay, maybe it left me a little kilig at first, but once I found out about him and my friend, it left me…. confused. Okay, I like him, but I’m scared. About a lot of things.
Gah, here goes the forced engineer again. I hope someone would hit me in the head so I’d shake this off.
I almost marked my own blog as spam. HAHA.
