In one chat room…
Cupido : Hi there! ASL please. I’m male, 31, Philippines.
Angelheart: Female, 31, Singapore.
Cupido : What a cute name. Are you really an angel?
Angelheart: They say I have the heart of gold. I like to help people. Especially the less fortunate ones. My friends regard me as their wind beneath their wings.
Cupido : That’s great! Others find me charming, intelligent and friendly. I often bridge the gaps for friends, lovers and the like.
Angelheart: But they often called me a Drama Queen. I cried over silly things. Too sensitive to handle.
Cupido : Then I’m the Ego King. I don’t bend my principles and wouldn’t allow abusive behavior towards me.
Angelheart: Do you have a girlfriend now?
Cupido : I do. I felt comfortable with our relationship but I’m still undecided if she’s the one. Do you have special someone right now?
Angelheart: No. Just recovered from my eleven years relationship. But I have this crush on someone but he’s too busy to notice me. He’s also working for the welfare of the poor.
Cupido : I got easily move on from my past relationship. You have to think of yourself first. Don’t let anybody hurt you that much.
Angelheart: It’s just so disappointing that after a decade he would told me that he can no longer accept me for what I become. But I already accepted the fact that he’s already gone.
Cupido : That’s good. Forget him. He’s not worth it.
Angelheart: Hey, what’s your work?
Cupido : I save lives.
Angelheart: Really? That’s great. How about joining us for the cause?
Cupido : Some other time. I’m busy right now with my career. I want to prove that I can also support myself. Money has been hard lately.
Angelheart: That’s too bad. I’ve been supporting my family too. I’ve been financing my sister’s education. Money has been also tough these days but I don’t forget to share my blessings to others inspite of.
Cupido : You really have a big heart. You remind me of someone…
From the background, someone is paging Cupido’s name…
Cupido : Gotta go. My patients need me at the moment. See you around!
Angelheart: OK. I will always be just here. I worked with computers.
Cupid : REALLY? Can I ask you a question? Is your ex a doctor too?
Angelheart: Why Yes!
Cupido : (Silent, heart pouding.) I’m glad you have survived a broken heart.
Angelheart: Thanks! Hey go now, your patients need you.
Cupido sign off, slowly stand up and walk towards the hallway… wiping a tear. He had hurt her that much. She had love him that much.
