RAIN

Part 1

One night, a guy was looking outside the FX taxi as he went home from work. Wishing that he's interacting with the people outside, not just a silent witness to what's happening. An actor, not a spectator.

Nagulat na lang siya ng mapansing lumagpas na siya sa dapat babaan. Dali-dali siyang pumara at bumaba sa FX. As he stepped out, the rain started to pour. He ran to the nearest waiting shed, and bumped to a woman running in the same direction, causing both of them to fall on the wet ground.

Radio, Part 1

Don't say goodbye
It's hard to let you go


That's what he heard as he stepped in the office. Mukhang busy na naman magpatugtog ang assistant ng boss nila. But he can't find fault in that. Sometimes the silence tends to be overwhelming.

He arranged his things and started working even though it's not yet 8am, trying to drown the song and bury it with the other memories attached to it.

Part 2

A few minutes and a couple of songs later, everyone was called for a meeting. A VIP was expected to arrive in a few days. This means tighter security, and lots of overtime work. It can cover for the time that he just stares at the ceiling and reminisce. Some might call it silly but hey, everyone is entitled for a few quirks in this life.

As they stepped out of the meeting room, a new song started playing.

Part 3

It's a song from The Corrs. Nananadya ata ang pagkakataon.

Smiling sadly, memories came back, of how they used to call different radio stations to dedicate songs for each other. How they sang along in duets in videoke, bar hopping and attending concerts, buying the latest cassette tapes, watching the latest music videos...

But now, his life revolves around his work, his family, his dog. He's even called a hermit by some. He just shrugs it off.

Part 4

As he sat back at his desk, he concentrated on the work at hand.

5pm arrived, 6, 7, 8, 9, and then 10. He stood up, stretched out to loosen his tight muscles and shuts down his laptop. Another day has ended. It's time to go home.

He turns off the lights and then went to the elevator. Luckily, walang multo sa building nila Smile

As he waited for the lift to arrive, he checked his cp. A number of missed calls showed up, some from his mother, a couple from friends, and one unknown number.

Part 5

He was thinking who the unknown call came from all the way down to the lobby.

As he stepped out of the elevator, he put his phone inside the special case in his bag. No reason to attract robbers especially since it's almost Christmas.

As he neared the front door, the guard called his attention.

Sir, you have an urgent message. The guard motioned to the radio placed in his station. As Fritz lifted it, a voice he hasn't heard for quite a while spoke up. Dominique's back...

tumpak! mahirap talaga. ako nga nakakailang pabalik-balik ng chapters and everytime na binabalikan ko sila lagi akong may nadadagdag. kaya para siyang constant editing din ang nangyayari habang umuusbong ang story...

kahit na ako na writer nung kwento d ko alam ang buong mangyayari...

Terminal, Part 1

Itinerary, check
Hotel room, check
Conference hall, check
Airplane, check
Terminal, check


Dominique ticked off the basic items on her list. So far, so good. She better get in touch with the other members of the team to check on their corresponding responsibilities. This project with the Prime Minister seems to be a piece of cake but based on the prior events that they’ve handled, nothing is simple. Karaniwan, kung kailan hindi inaasahan, saka may nangyayaring gulo.

She approached Teri to check the update on the plane’s current location. The PM’s scheduled to arrive in 30 minutes at marami nang taga press ang nag-aabang para ma-interview ito. Di biro ang pagpunta ng isa sa pinakamaimpluwensyang tao sa mundo para pasinayaan ang pagbubukas ng bagong branch ng Queen’s Palace Hotel.

She re-checked if everyone’s in their places, walking the long hallways of the airport. Hindi biro ang paghawak ng even na ito. Ilang tao ang kailangan ko keep everything organized, pati na rin ang ilang oras na ginugol. She doesn't want to fail in their lates project.

As she turned a corner, she was a couple of guys drinking coffee and talking with each other in hushed voices. A familiar figure caught her eye. Fritz.

As expected, hindi nila palalampasin ang ganitong pagkakataon.

She turned around and started to walk her way back to her post. Better get ready, the show's about to start.
