1,234 letters

It’s not about “me” loving “you.” Don’t think of it that way.

This essay is one of the 1,234 letters that I have written for you. I do not know when, where or even how I will give it to you. I just wrote it addressed to you in advance hoping that you, my future partner, would admire my love for you.

It’s a cycle, a cliché scene in my mind wherein the boy-meets-girl setting ends up not-so-happily-ever-after. It’s common for you because you’ve experienced it time and time again. Kinda sucks, right?

Kumusta ang mga Diyos sa kabundukan ng Benguet?

Magkikita tayong muli, naway pagpalain mo ako sampu nang aking mga kasama.

Soon enough, the nightmare showed its real face.

Dead bodies along the way, flattened houses, uprooted trees. Devastation.

This is something unheard of even with this country facing 20 to 22 typhoon on average per year.

This is the outdoors Julius. Leave love for the meantime. XD
