The Joys of Friendship
From our batch,I have not lost touch of a long time friendship with this lady . Distance and absence did not affect the friendship bond that we have developed.I used to fetch her from her house ,I borrow her books,we make assignments together.We have girl talks too as we traverse the long and dusty road to the JRI campus armed with our colorful umbrellas.
The umbrella has a story to tell,an amusing one:about young love,sweet love! The umbrella was used to cover my friend's face from the glimpse of a smitten young man who had to climb the Catholic church belfry just to see if her Lady Love and me were on our way to school in the hot afternoons between 12:00-1:00 pm.The gate of my friend's house is visible from the belfry.Once we are on our way,he will position himself across the Caltex Gas Station,patiently waiting for us and have a close up view of this lady.He is lucky if we don't notice his presence but you can imagine his desperation once my friend sways her umbrella close to her face and cover her blushing cheeks.After sometime, he will quickly ride a passing ALICIA jeep,back to school in Balanga to attend his remaining subjects.
To make my story short, my friendship with her continued,we had good times together with the BARKADA at the Central School,Julie, Emma, Josie Pascual and Annie Rodriguez.Meanwhile, the smitten gentleman pursued his intention and later won my friend's cold cold heart.So, from Guam,Washington,Hawaii,Delaware,Alaska,and New Jersey our communications did not wane.With letters and cards via the snail mail,to emails and personal chats when they visit home,the friendship continued and I bet will stay forever.Thank you Annie and Eddie for nourishing our friendship!
