The Loner

It was year 1995 when I had my training as a transcriber in a telecommunications company. The training was held for 5 days in UP Diliman. On the very first day, this guy caught my attention. He was a trainee too. A loner I thought for he was not talking to anyone of us. He just talked if he had to ask or answer questions. Lunch time came and the loner guy ate alone. I was so intrigued by this tall, dark man. Is he really a loner or just snob? Those were the same scenarios and questions everyday until the training was over.

First day in the office. Oh, there was the guy again. So he passed the training like me. Finally I saw him smiled. From that day on, we became “barkadas”. We were together everyday; eating lunch, going home, drinking with friends. Until a common friend told me that he has a crush on me. He courted me, I answered him, were sweethearts for three years and finally got married October 30, 1999. Yes, that tall dark guy is now my husband.

Rhonnel is not a loner neither a snob. He said he was just testing the waters that is why he was so silent. And his first impression of me? Smart and “kalog” (can anyone translate this in English). Until now, there are times that we are reminiscing together and he is asking me if I too had a crush on him. My answer is always “none” but I think the first time this loner caught my attention I already fell in love with him.

    Nakakatuwa naman yung past ninyo nang hubby mo. Meron pang air of mystery nung una. Pero since you were both fated for each other, nanaig pa rin yung destiny ninyo. Now you are husband and wife and enjoying the bliss of a happy marriage. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
