“We soon learn to love what we know we must lose.” (From the book The Narnian by Alan Jacobs)
This is the story of the first love that will never die.
I’ve known her, Nina (let me call her by that name) since my elementary years. She was my greatest competitor in Astronomy, Biology, History, and Population Education quiz bee then. And to be found out later that she’s going to be the greatest event ever happened.
Nina was not a typical girl. She’s smart, pretty, appealing, and good-natured. All the traits that a man wants, she’s got it. She’s so simple. I fell in love with her simplicity.
I remember the time when our classmates left us locked in our classroom. I was irascible and shouting like hell: just for the two of us be released. She was so calm, sitting in the corner of the room. I was annoyed by such quietness. It’s insulting.
Then I told her, “Bakit wala kang kibo dyan? Gusto mo yata dito tayo matulog.”
“Kahit ikaw na lang ang lalaki sa mundo, di kita papatulan.” She retorted.
“Mas lalo naman ako. Akala mo sobrang ganda mo. Maganda ka lang.” I quipped.
Then we left highschool. She went to the national university in Quezon City, while I am spending my college years in a state university in the province.
Love shall linger even in great distance.
And that’s what happened. I’ve been missing her, her presence, her laughter, her jokes, and her voice. All of those. Then It came to a point that I have told her what I really feel about her. I texted her sometime in our freshmen years in college.
