what happened to them? where in the world are they?

I had one major crush when I was in elementary, another one in highschool, AND, of course, a major league level crush-crushan in college. I must admit that my kilig factor is limited to one person at a time. Only close ‘blood-compact’ friends are privy to my kaban of crushes since I opted that my private life remain p-r-i-v-a-t-e… and methinks mas enjoy pag-ganun. Imagine hording the knowledge na na kausap mo ang crush mo… you can talk to him without the tuksuhan. hyuk-hyuk-hyuk…

Exhibit A was my crush while i was still wearing a white-blouse-and-blue- duster-combie uniform. He’s one of our neighbor’s son. Magaling siyang magbike, at sya lang ang nakilala kong may BMX bike dati. The last time I saw him was three years ago. I was in Manila then to visit my Cavite bloodlines. Anyways, I met Exhibit A in the hallway of my sister’s home church in Alabang. Musta-musta lang. Ows.

Exhibit B was my high school crush. Of the three, this was my most hush-hush. Hay, ayokong mamatay sa tukso nung high school! He was one of my batchmates. I remember he plays ___ well and kasama ko sya sa school _____. Mabait kasi itong si Exhibit B, kwento ng mga kapitbahay nyang mga girlaloo friends ko. I saw his last animuy nung HS reunion namin. In fairness, just like before, una nya akong binati. Hwews!

Exhibit C, eto ang madugo. I ‘officially’ met him in Cebu pero kababs ko pala sya. Laking gulat me… schoolmates pala kami nung highschool. AND pampahaba ng hair, naaalala nya ako nung high school. Haaaay life. Magaling na arki student sya (cum laude) at athletic pa– member nga daw sya sa volleyball team ng univ nya. O di ba, di lang pang acads, pang sports pa! Too bad, neneng-nene pa ako nung nagkita kami kaya tameme-blues at taratets ako. The last (and only) time we said bye-bye was in front of the P—G office.

Naging curious din ako kung ano na ang nangyari sa kanila ngayon. So I did some research:

Exhibit A : I meet his mom last december and she happily informed me that the family just came from Manila to attend Exhbit A’s wedding. Syempre di nya alam former crush ko ang baby nya. I think he still works in one of those CALABARZON insdustrial parks . God bless sa new life mo!

Exhibit B : Medyo updated ako kay Exhibit B dahil sa mga clueless batchmates kong mga chikadora. Mahilig mangchismis sa mga happenings ng batchmates namin. And thanks also to our HS online site, pwede ko rin syang i-‘stalk’ anytime. Hehehe. He got married to a ‘whitelady’ and just recently, fly na sila to the northern climes of ______ to find gold and fairies. Meron na rin silang 2 kids. Magpakayaman ka dong!

Exhibit C : Grrr… never found a single clue about his life after cebu. Never met him again even in ___ conferences. Kahit man lang sa L.A. Gun. Stalker na kung stalker, I searched his name in the internet. I must say that this person is a very private member of the virtual world. Wala man lang sya sa friendster. Isipin mo, sa google search iisang entry lang lumabas sa name nya. At nung in-open ko ang site, di pa ako makapasok kasi its for members lang daw. Ahhh, meron palang clue…and the word is D-u-b-a-i. Hoy kahit shadow mo man lang!

What if …..? Eto naman ang sagot ko:

Exhibit A : Mas matangkad na ako sa kanya ngayon, noh. Period.

Exhibit B : Hilig nya ay puti at kulot. Besides, heartland nya ang Cebu. Ayoko dun, di masarap ang tubig. Kaya non-negotiable.

Exhibit C : Wala ngang balita eh. Wait, nasa earth pa kaya sya? Ngyaaaah scary!

****

Final verdict : Never meant to be talaga ni isa man lang sa above noh. Dahil…. dahil… dahil ang mga true loves ko (Asian version) ay sina super-dodong Takeshi Kaneshiro, si papa Paulo-memories-of-bali at si forever-gwafung Andy Lau. Hahaaay!
