AWAY

I WANNA BLOG ABOUT HOW FAIRLY WELL I DO WHEN IT COMES TO WAKING UP EARLY FOR--THAT IS, FOR A STARTER. ABOUT THE "FAIRLY WELL" PART, THAT'S JUST BASED ON MY POOR OBSERVATION ;) LOL

BUT I SAW THIS DRAFT, AND I CHOSE TO WRITE ON AND POST THIS ONE.

MY COUSIN WHO'S AN INCOMING FOURTH YEAR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT, WENT AWAY WITHOUT HER PARENTS PERMISSION TO BE WITH HER BF IN TONDO. SHE JUST MET HER BF IN FB. BF FB, BF FB. IT'S ANNOYING! YES, THE IDEA. AND DISAPPOINTING COZ I HAVE WITNESSED HOW HER PARENTS DO THEIR BEST TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR FOUR CHILDREN.

ON THE FIRST DAY, MY COUSIN INFORMED HER PARENTS THAT SHE'S ON HER WAY HOME. COME EVENING, SHE FAILED TO GET BACK. THE WHOLE FAMILY GOT TERRIBLY WORRIED! IT'S IMAGINABLE, SO I WONT ELABORATE ON WHAT THINGS WE DID TO FIND HER.

WHILE SHE WAS AWAY, I HAD WITNESSED SOME EXCHANGE OF WORDS AMONG HIGHSCHOOL STUDENTS, 9PM IN CALAMBA. LADS ON A TRICYCLE YELLED AT THE YOUNG GIRLS WALKING ON THE STREET. "MGA P***** INA NYO!" ONE GIRL HAPPILY SHOUTED BACK, "HINDI P*** NANAY KO, RAKISTA!" ANOTHER GIRL EXCLAIMED, "OO NGA, HINDI P*** MGA NANAY NAMEN KUNGDI RAPPER!".
THAT ENCOUNTER BOTHERED ME SO MUCH. AT ADOLESCENCE, THEY WERE ABLE TO ACT THAT WAY. WITHOUT STRICT PARENTAL SUPERVISION ON TODAY'S YOUTH, WE WILL BE SURPRISED THAT OUR OWN RELATIVES, OR EVEN OUR OWN CHILDREN, WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO DO SUCH MISBEHAVIOR.

ON THE SECOND DAY OF HER BEING AWAY, SHE FINALLY CONTACTED ONE OF HER TITAs (ON HER DAD'S SIDE). EVENTUALLY, SHE ASKED HER MOM TO COME FETCH HER. SO MY TITAs AND A TITO WENT TO TONDO. THEY WERE SO DISHEARTENED WHEN THEY REACHED THE PLACE. THE WOODEN HOUSE WAS BUILT ON A 10 X 15 SQUARE "FEET" AREA OF LAND. I WRITE "FEET" COZ I LAYOUT DESIGNS FOR TARP! LOL! AND YOU KNOW WHAT, THAT HOUSE EVEN HAS A SECOND FLOOR! THE FAMILY NEEDS TO RAISE P40.00 A DAY FOR PLACE RENT AND ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION. THE BOY'S MOM WAS SO THIN, AS WELL AS HER FOUR CHILDREN. MY TITAS AND THE POLICE OFFICERS WITH THEM, GAVE THE CHILDREN A DOZE OF "SERMON". SO THEY FIN'LYY BROUGHT MY COUSIN BACK HERE.

THE NEXT NEXT MORNING, I SAW HER ON THE SALA. MY TITA SCOLDING HER. SHE TOLD ME MY COUSIN WONT SPEAK, AND THAT SHE INSISTED ON GOING BACK TO TONDO. ALTHOUGH I WAS READY TO GO TO THE OFFICE, I CHOSE TO STAY AND SPEAK TO HER, GIVE MY WORDS WHICH MIGHT HELP HER WHOLEHEARTEDLY DECIDE TO STAY HOME AND FOLLOW HER PARENTS' WILL.

WHILE I SPEAK, I SAW MY TITA CRYING. MAYBE BECAUSE SHE DIDNT EXPECT THAT I WOULD INTERFERE AND SAY WORDS SHE DINT EXPECT I CAN SAY. OR MAYBE SHE WAS MOVED, BECAUSE SHE GOT ANOTHER HELP FROM SOMEONE WHO LOVES HER DAUGHTER THE WAY SHE DOES. MAYBE BECAUSE SHE SAW ME (HER NEPHEW WHOM SHE TOOK CARE OF WHILE MY MOM WAS IN WORKING IN HK) TRYING TO EXPLAIN THINGS TO HER  BELOVED DAUGHTER.

ONE AFTERNOON, WHEN I GOT HOME FROM WORK, I HEARD ONE OF MY TITA SCOLD HER. SHOUTING AND FORCING HER TO ANSWER "YES." I BLEW UP AND TOLD MY TITA TO STOP SHOUTING, COZ  SUCH APPROACH IT ISNT A GOOD IDEA.
SHE GOT MAD AT ME, YELLED AND I KEEP ON YELLING BACK. IN MY HEAD, THEY WERE SO PRAYERFUL AND WORRIED TRYING TO GET HER BACK WHILE MY COUSIN WAS AWAY, AND NOW THAT SHE WAS HERE, THEY WOULD JUST CARELESSLY HURT HER. BADTRIP DIBA. SO I WENT AWAY FOR A FEW DAYS ;) LOL.
