Helia's P.O.V

I sat there in the damo waiting for you. I know it’s been two years since you have ran away from everything you ever knew, but I still hope for that araw you come home. I know you ran away to protect yourself, but I wish you would have told us why you left. So I found out for myself, and I now know you left because if you didn’t you would have been killed. I just hope wherever you are that you are happy. Also I just want you to know that no matter what I will always pag-ibig you even if you have to ilipat on. I know the araw will come when I get to see you again even though I know if I get the chance to say goodbye one madami time my puso will break the moment I looked into those Esmeralda eyes of yours and hear the words I am sorry but I have moved on and it’s time for you to do the same. The araw I first found out you went missing I bawled and ever since that night I have cried myself to sleep every night hoping I will see you again because sometimes the words left unspoken hurt the most. I sat there in the field sa pamamagitan ng the rock where I first sinabi I pag-ibig you on your birthday exactly four years nakaraan today. A part of me knows you won’t ipakita but I can try to mask the disappointment because it’s all I have left to keep my puso tied together. As the sunrise turned to sunset I gathered the box with the precious diamond I was going to give to you at graduation and a bouquet of your paborito mga rosas I bought for you for your 20th birthday yet I won’t get to celebrate it with you. I sighed and headed back to the boarding school you attended that was just down the road from mine where a memorial for you lays in hope you’ll return one year. I set down the mga rosas and light the candles as I cry looking at your senior portrait knowing you probably have changed during this time period. Once the moon fully rose I walked backed but not before I turned around and heard the rustle of the leaves on the wind. I looked at my feet and saw a small paper sisne and as I unfolded it I felt tears stream down the side of my face. The letter read I’m sorry I have caused you all this pain every araw since I left, but I did it to protect myself from the pain of watching someone I pag-ibig die or having the ones I pag-ibig mourn at the loss of a friend, so I ran as fast as I could and as far as I could. I didn’t mean to break your heart, but because it pained me too much just to see your shadow I couldn’t face you and I’m sorry but just please ilipat on for the sake of both of us. However I want you to know no matter what happens I will always pag-ibig you because I have never stopped loving you from the moment I you. I cried because she was the one who had my puso and she still had mine. She finally came tahanan yet I didn’t get to see her it was the way I sadly pictured it having to ilipat on even when I knew neither of us would. So I ran as fast as I could to that rock and saw her standing there in a little white dress with bulaklak in her hair and she smiled once she saw me in my sports coat, button down and slacks. I realized that all our mga kaibigan where their along with a priest I never thought this moment would come I finally proposed to her because she knew I wouldn’t ilipat on when I knew she was still alive because I would fight for her until the last moment I had. She sinabi yes and then we got married right there on her 20th birthday and even though it’s been a long two years I made the right choice to wait for her return. We sealed the deal with a halik and I looked into those sparkling Esmeralda eyes in the moonlight and thought to myself this pag-ibig is worth waiting for no matter how long it takes to be together again, even if she did ilipat on while she was gone.
