Caught Off Guard

Calling it a night after meeting a friend over post-work snacks and stories weeks ago:

FLICKERLIGHT: Ihahatid na kita sa inyo ha?

ME: Dyan? (pointing to his motorcycle)

FLICKERLIGHT: Oo.

ME: Ay, it's okay. I'll commute na lang. I can manage.

FLICKERLIGHT: Ano ka ba? Single ka na ngayon. Wala nang magseselos kahit makita tayong magkasama.


Okay. He has a point. :-D And I had to throw a split-second "what did he say?" stare.

In the end, still insisted on my decision of commuting as I have fears of riding a motorcycle; much more doing it without a helmet. But whenever I recall this incident, I can't help but shake my head in funny disbelief. And I will not be ashamed to say that I liked how he looked as he waved goodbye, and the way he steadily  glanced at my direction as the trike whisked me away to bring me home.

Call it dreamy, even such a scene from your usual sappy movie. But in my own words, seeing him like that moved me.
