When Love Returns


The alarm clock woke me up. It is exactly 6:00 am in the morning. I need to be on Quezon city before 8am for my job interview. Beside me is Dianne and on my right is Tracy. I don't bother waking them up. I hit the shower and quickly changed in to a presentable attire. Before I left the pad, I wrote a short note for the two sleeping beauties so both of them will know that their Romeo just left the house.

The Surprise Gift


"Oh my God!" These were the only words I uttered when we reached the parking area.

"What do you think? Do you like it?" Tito Joseph asked.

"What do you mean? Is this mine?" I asked back.

"You have the key right? Then it is yours," he answered.

Answering Machine



I woke up still with the headache caused by last night's drinking session with cousins and relatives.  Wall clock already showing 11am.  Still wearing a squinched vision, I tried to get out of the bed and walk my way to the shower.

The Wedding Day


From the building’s 5th floor pool area, you get a good view of the city. I can also see the very busy crowd in the city streets down below. The cool breeze sweeps my hair as I take a sip on a glass of wine. Then out of nowhere, a girl in a white bridal gown embraces me from behind.

Victoria: the Girl in Low Rise Jeans


"What are you doing here?" I asked. Quickly now, I grab the blanket to cover myself.

"Oh come on Franco, I can't believe you're still shy to bare your boyish charm", she answered as she walks towards my side table and grabs a stick of cigarette.

"Victoria, you can't just barge in to my door like that", I said annoyingly.
