Crazy love

Saturday, March 21, 2009

Imagine my surprise when I was told about what had happened to one of our classmates in high school.

I did not know what to say, or how to rationalize things, or who to blame.

She was one of the prettiest in the classroom. Modest, soft-spoken, mysterious - she had that Mona Lisa smile. She wasn't really part of the honor list but she is intelligent and very talented. She has that delicate, skillful hand of an artist - she magically transforms a simple drawing into an artwork, with her accurate touch of color and style. She was such a beauty to behold herself - she was very lovely.

In contrast to how we remember her before, she is, according to our common friend - sick, pale, and looked much older than her actual age. She didn't look beautiful at all - as if she lost all her glory. She's not even in her mid-twenties! I just could not picture out how she looked like now.

What happened to her?

As I have already noted, she was very attractive and had so many suitors. Almost everyone in my batch was in envious of her because she had this rich, good-looking boyfriend with a very fashionable car. He is just a year older. Months after college graduation and working for a while in a financial institution, her boyfriend got her pregnant. To save face, her family obliged both of them in marriage. He already had violent tendencies by then - he battered her out of jealousy. We realized she had doubts even then but maybe she thought he would change, so they had a grand wedding and everybody was invited.

We didn't hear much about her after that, except when they had the christening of their baby. A year after that, we heard that she gave birth again but the second baby died after a few days. Due to post-partum depression and death of her child, she got afflicted by Tuberculosis. Her husband also blatantly had several affairs. To make the story short, her husband maltreated her, continued to act as if he were still single and finally they separated. Now, she's fighting over her son's custody even though she's been legally proclaimed the rightful guardian. The husband's family would "borrow" the baby and she would be left wondering when they will "return" the boy.

Sigh! I did not imagine this young, beautiful, talented and intelligent lady ending up like this. I've always had aversion towards rich and good-looking playboys who know nothing than flaunt their looks and show-off their fancy stuffs. And maybe they think they can always get away because they can replace their girlfriends/wives anytime.

I don't blame my classmate. It's not pity but sympathy that I felt. She loved but her love was wasted by a man who didn't even deserve her. She's young and professional and with her skills and pleasing personality - I know she can recover. I am just very angry at the man who had momentarily wrecked her life.

I might delete this post after a while.

Sad.

Pero huwag pong lahatin ang mga lalake...

There's a moral lesson for the girls in this story. Mag-ingat sa lalaking mamahalin (kahit na sinasabing makapangyarihan at bulag ang pag-ibig).

Pwedeng pang-Magpakailanman o MMK ang kwentong ito, ang pamagat: Kotse.

Mahirap nga magmahal. Not all men are the same as not all women are the same.
