“ ‘I keep thinking about this river somewhere, with the water moving really fast. And these two people in the water, trying to hold onto each other, holding on as hard as they can, but in the end it’s just too much. The current’s too strong. They’ve got to let go, drift apart. That’s how I think it is with us. It’s a shame, Kath, because we’ve loved each other all our lives. But in the end, we can’t stay together forever.”
— Never Let Me Go, by Kazuo Ishiguro
Ang sarap balikan nung nakaraan. Nung hayskul pa lamang kami. Walang iniintindi. Puro saya lang. Puro kalokohan. Tawanan na kala mo wala ng bukas, tsismisan ng walang lubay. Tampuhan pero maya maya lang okay na ulit. Ang saya diba? At nakakatanga lang pag naaalala mo yung nakaraan at gustong gusto mong balikan yun. Nakakabobo ngayon. Nakakamiss sila. Nakakamiss ang hayskul layp. Lagi nalang ako nakabukaka.
