chasing past...
 
it's been a while since she came back in this town. she was then running in some of her own created shadows but now there is no turning back. she needs to face it and deal with it. it left her alot of scars that een until now are unheald. 
 
she was sitting in the paasengers seat of a jeepney deciding where to go and check some places if theres something new in the town. there are new tall buildings now that she never seen when she was there. it even make her confuse which way to take. its about mid noon where the sun is striking above her head. sweat is slo.wly visiting her golden brown skin which really made her uncomfortable. at the near end of the way she saw a mall that was not new to her, she decided to check it if it's still the same. eyes stuck on the ground, trying not to attract any attention she walk inside the mall. a new release book of her favorite author was piled up in the shelf, she decided to check it out. grabbing a book and directly reading the synopsis like she would always do. it's all about a persons journey to meet people, know them, forget about them and know them better later. looking up at the cashier checking it if there's a lot of people in line, then she told herself it's pointless looking in the counter because she will still buy it anyway even if the line is endless. she passed at a shelf where there are charm bracelets and she told hersel that she needs to grab one like hers way back before she took off. there was a blue, green and yelow charm friendship band with a dolphine hanging, she took it off and add it to her purchases. never eaten anything, her stomach startd to grumble. she went to a foodchain where she used to eat when she was still there. still the same, the service is slow but the food is tollerable. she is the kind of person where she would settle for what she used to do even if there are still better options accesable to her. a crew of the foodchain remember her and ask her if she would still have the same order as before. she was surprise to know that after 3years he still remembers her. partly smiling she nod. after taking the number for the table she steated straight to the window, where she will be able to see all the people passing. a couple sitting next to her was talking about her. she tried to have a pereferal view of them and she was surprised to know them. she never expected them to be a couple, because when she left the girl was still with her bestfriend but because she left leaving everything behind she was  ailen to what was happeing in their lives. the guy is her classate when she was in college but only for a couple of units and the girl was her bestfriends girlfriend back then. always being shy, she didn't  turn to confirm them that it was her. maybe the couple couldn't get over it, the girl approach her in a friendly manner. ask her if she's who they are thinking. she smiled at them and nod. just to say something she mentioned the pregnancy of the girl which is obvious because of her watermelon like tummy. after having a little chat with her the couple went off. she never got the chance to ask about what happened to the girl and her bestfriend and she also figured it out that it's not the best thing to do especially the pertner of the girl is there.  few minuetes later her order came. she ate it alone, slowly chewing every bit. it took her almost an hour to finish eating. grabbing her phone stuck in her brown sling bag she started to press a couple of numbers and when it started ringing she drop the call. she know ther is no right time for her to do what she needs to do but she is still scared. scared of how she will react, what will be the outcome, she is scared of almost evrything. since she left she often feel like this, regarding this certain person. no matter how long or how hard she try to outrun this certain feeling which is really not appropriate to keep, she just can't. this is the very reason why she left, leaving everything behind with no clarity, didn't even say to her parents where and why does she have to go. but now, she decided to test what she had formed through her leaving. she wants to make sure that what she had done is the right thing to do. 
 
 
 
 
trying to catch up on things...
 
leaving was never been her greatest decision but it's the only thing she could ever think at that moment because what she feels is barely tollerable. it's toring every bit of her leaving her naked and destroyed. she needs to protect herself but now she is trying to pick up where she had left.
 
it's almost nine in the evening and she just finish scrubbing her self in the bathroom. she directly lay down on her bed with her wet hair dripping on the pillow. her phone beeped. it was her mom in the other room asking her "Issie, did you contact Andy already? she's been looking for you since you left. she's always here if she don't know what to do, hoping that you're already home."  not knowing how to face her, her mom haven't talke to her that much yet about her leaving. it was the first time did her mom told her about her bestfriend, through text, when she can just knock in her room and talk. she understands her mom. it was not easy to deal with what she had done to the people around her. her mom couldn't even decide what to do first whether to hug her, ask her what happened (but ofcourse it didn't happen, she's too scared it might just triggered her to run off again) or take her stuff and fix her food. Issie's mom changed a lot. even Issie was surprised, she was expecting her mom to yell at her when she come home or push he out of the door because of leaving and not telling anyone where she is. she answered her mom bak by yelling "not yet mom, still trying to figure out what to tell her." she picked her phone at the other end of the bed a started to text Andy, asking her if she's okay and if she's free tomorrow. Issie fell asleep waiting for Andy to text back or call. in the middle of the night she felt the urge to urinate. slowy searching or her phone while eyes closed to check the time when she saw a text of Andy that says "i hate you for leaving me! i don't know what to do. i'm even blaming myself, doubting myself that it could have been my fault." about to cry but with all force she hold it, telling herself that she's suppose to expect this. she doesn't have the right to epect people will just accpet her back with an open arms after what she had done to them. Issie slowly get up, sit in the edge of her bed for a few minuetes trying to compose herself and went o the comfort room and went back to sleep. 
 
something warm and comforting rest on her face, it was the sunlight already peeping inside her room. she turn to her left reaching for her cellphone to check the time and it was 8:30 am already.good thing she doesnt have a class. she doesnt feel like waking up and even hide under the sheets to cheat waking up. after a minute her mom called her again. she decided to move down. slowly hanging her feet first, her eyes search for her fluffy green slippers with a frog as its design. slipping her feet inside she notice that there's a lot of giggling in the kitchen. she hurried going down forgetting to tie her hair ad also tripping a number of steps. she was surprise to see the familiar feet sitting in the conter of the kitchen. hesitant to go in he kitchen when the familiar feet jumped and walked fastly approaching her. she was face to face with the person who caused her to sleep late just last night. it was Andy, having breakfast in their house.  her mom called them to sit in the table to eat. it was oly the two of them living in the house, so when she left it was only her mom who stayed in the house. when she haven't left there would be times that Andy would sleep with them. they've known each other since junior high, the're clasmates since then. Andy bite her in the shoulder and hugged her. her mom just laughed while she's about to cry because of the pain. Andy grab her hands while saying "that's for you leaving me without any explanation!, let's eat im hungry sleepy head." her mom served beacon, bread, butter, strawberry and coffee. she couldn't believe that andy was there when just last night she thought Andy would never going to talk to her again. there's just a lot of things she wanted to ask Andy but she's just confused on why Andy forgave her that easy. izze started to grab a beacon and bread and started eating. when her mom opened up about the job of Andy. she works as a writer in one of the well known magazine in the city. while eating Izzie notice that Andy is eating really fast, so she asked Andy who said she needs to be in her table because she needs to finish her pending article. she told Izzie that she's just there for breakfast and just to check if Izzie was really back. so Izzie didn't protest and just ask if she can fetch Andy after her work. Andy just smiled at her while holding a bread in her hand while moving out of her chair. her mother just kept quite while in the sink trying to wash her hands to eat. before banging the door Andy shouted "my work ends at 5pm." fetching eachother was neve an issue for them not until when Izzie needed to step back a little. 
 
hiding in poison...
 
Izzie leaving was never been clear to Andy. she felt guilty about it because she told herself that if she was just there for izzie she might have prevented it. though, Izzie never even thought to blame her but for some reason she's a part of it...
 
things between Andy and Izzie was smooth. they are best friends since they could remember. went to same school since grade school until junior high. thye have their own few fights but managed to fixed it before the sun sets down. they would even sleep at eachothers house every week. they thought things would never change between them. their life only turns around with eachother until they reach senior years. things got rough including their schedule, family matters and friends. both of them fetch eachother everyday but everything changed when Andy was casted for a school play which needs to ran for about 4months becasue it was a fund raising project. Andy was about music, arts, performances, and all kinds related to stage while Izzie wants nothing but to hide behind the curtains. during these times Izzie would go home alone, leaving Andy to practice. 
 
early morning, Andy  would hear a loud knock in her room. she would just turn to the side opposite to the door and cover her head with a pillow. Izzie would run in her bed and uncover her to wake her up. she would just tell Izzie that she would just skip class to sleep for a while cause she hadn't had enough sleep becasue of paractice. Izzie tries to understan her but deep inside she really wanted Andy to quit. Izzie never tried to disagree with Andy, she always supported Andy for what she wants. it happened a couple of times that Andy would skip class just to have some sleep and Izzie would just make her a letter to excuse her. Andy was good in what she do but failed to manage and prioritize things. after a while Izzie got used to it though she still care fo Andy and want Andy to loosen her schedule a bit. Andy never listened and even tries to add more activties in her schedule like joining in inter school dance compettion. Andy lessen their time  for eachother like they didn't do sleepovers anymore, not even going to malls and even calling and checking eachother at night. they only meet in school halls and cafeteria. they don't eat together anymore because Andy needs to go with the table of her co cast to still practice. Izzie was all alone most of the time. she wants to be mad at Andy but she just couldn't, she already felt that Andy was taking her for granted but still didn't do a thing. 
 
while Andy was busy with all her activities Izzie tries to compensate being alone, in trying out in a swimming team in school. she knows how to swim but really didn't know that she got potential until she tried out. she was about to go home when she pass in the gym and saw a flyer being passed out. she got one and went straight to her car parked in the side of the gym where there are less people passing by. she stand at the side of the drivers seat while scanning the content of the flyer. it said that there will be a try out for those who are intrested in joining the swimming team. she thought of it for a few moments then get inside her car which is still cold inside due to the hard puoring of rain. she passed by a gasoline station and also bought foods for herself and her mom. when she got hme her mom was alrready cooking. she told her mom that she bought foods and her mom shoudn't cook. but her mom insist and prepare the dinner. she mentioned it to her mom about the swimming try out if she should give it a try. Izzie is the kind of daughter that always ask her mom for approval in anything she do. she was even teased by Andy because of it. she is obedient to her mom even if sometimes she doesn't want the things hr moms wants her to do. she was raised by her mom alone and believe that she owes everything she have to her mom and needs to return the favor by doing what her mom wants her to do. her mom encouraged her and she saw that her mom would really be pleased if she tries to join. she finished her dinner and went up to her room. when she was in front of her door her phone beeped it was Andy asking her if she could make another letter to excuse her cause she have a date and needs to skip again. before entering the door Izzie asked her who was her date? is it someone she knew? but Andy didn't told her and just replied that she'll just tell her the whole story when they meet. Izzie jump into her mac which was placed in the table next to the window and opposite to her bed. she printed it out and slid it in her notebook. she went for a bath and got her ipod and stock it in her ears and slept. 
 
next morning, Izzie was walking in the hall going to her english class. she was eyeing for Andy to talk to her but Andy was nowhere to be found. as she was about to turn towards their room she bumped into a girl who smelled like a cucumber with a melon twist. dropping every book that she carried and placing her self on the floor. a voice immediately said "sorry, i didn't mean to, you came out of nowhere. really sorry, let me help you." while picking up some of Izzie's stuff and sticking out her hand to help Izzie up. Izzie also said sorry and tried to explain "it's okay, it's not your fault, im not looking in my way.. sorry.." while also picking up her stuff that was scattered around the floor. as she raised her head to look who she bumped, the bell suddenly rang. she was surprised and her eyes went directly towards the bell. the person who bumped at her automatically piled up her things at the floor and walked fastly away while saying "sorry, got to go bye.." Izzie didn't even got the chance to know her. the only thing that Izzie got a hold on about her was her clothes. likewise, Izzie run to her English class. when she enterd to door, her professor wasn't there yet. she pulled her cellphone purple sling bag that matches her nail polish as she walk going to her seat. she was seated near the wall. she texted Andy if, she will join her at lunch but got no reply. 
 
Andy's mom, mrs.Darren knocked at her door while she is still sleeping. she was awakened by her mom's high pitch voice saying, "Andy you're late and someone is looking for you, her on the phone, she said she's Sam". when Andy heard it was Sam she immediately ran down to pick up the phone with out putting her slippers on. ms.Darren was surprised by her action for a couple od days already. because everytime Sam calls she would be so atentive and enthusiastic to talk to her. Sam is also her favorite topic during dinner time. Andy decided to go to school to catch up even if she's late. she asked ms.Darren if she could drive her to school. she immediately changed her pajamas into jeans and a sleeveless. her mom went to their civic car and started the engine while waiting for her to come out. as she passed to the kitchen she snatch a banana for her breakfast and grab her overcoat as she went to the car. her hair was uncombed so her mom tossed her the brush. she checked her phone that was in her pocket it read "one new message" it was Izzie asking her for lunch, but she didn't bother to reply. her mom push the pedal hard to speed up just enough not to exceed the limit. she reached school during 2nd period and run excitedly to her history class. she went to her seat next to Sam. Sam was talking to her seatmate about going out later afternoon. when Sam saw Andy she smiled at her making her pink lips more cuter. everytime Andy saw Sam's face it reminds her od summer. it's always shining and warm. she rush to seat as her teacher also enters the room. Sam told her that she's glad for Andy to make it. Andy smiled with gladness to feel that someone was happy seeing her and she feels important when she's with Sam.
