When She Was Is, is about a girl known as Mimi; a normal, weak, diffident, ordinary girl in her quest to be special, or so she thought. She made one mistake, creating an identity online as Caroline, an opposite version of her; a sweet, beautiful, and admirable girl, meant to pull the heartstrings of the people who followed her. Yet through this identity, her normal, insignificant life is bound to change as she gets caught up with people who are meant to be special— a girl fighting against a family conspiracy, a charming prince seeking his goddess, and a tragic-fated girl who has incomparable beauty. One mistake in the past led to a twisted fate and her life never got more complicated than ever. Will she be able to take another step further?View More
THIS COULD HAVE BEEN A DISASTER, A well thought of disaster in that matter. To be honest, the journey of writing this narrative had put me in a constant strain of what if scenarios. It is like exploring a new entire world without a single idea about the consequences the realm exhibits. And, as much as I hate to admit it, romance is a weakness I would rather omit. It is a reality that my virgin mind failed to navigate freely. To simply say, this story is a fraud— a slice of life drama advertising itself as a young-adult romance. I also do have some reservations in calling it an oversimplified chick-lit story. In the end, I decided to go the most logical route and face my unyielding fear to reconsider my abstinent views towards intimate correspondence.I knew that I needed to rekindle the lost flare of my hopeless romantic heart, and so I did. I made a brave decision a
"To what floor?" I asked, as my index finger hovered over the panel.Just to be clear, a new guy went into the lift a few seconds ago. To be honest, I kinda wished that he didn't make it to the barely closing elevator doors. More importantly, I hope he didn't see me mashing the buttons to make the doors close a little more faster.Anyway, today is the day of the interview. And I believe I've accomplished pretty much everything I needed. I finished saying farewell to my hometown, moving to a new place, and now I'm finally heading for a new job. However, that will all boil down to whether I will get hired or not.The single other occupant in the elevator pushed his glasses up his nose and gave this stern look, "Hi," he said flatly.<
"Good Morning, Reverend Jaiden!" a lady in green shouts as Jaiden walks to the side of the street. "To you as well, Grace," he said as he beamed a smile."You're all smiles today, did something good happen?" she asked, trying not to appear desperate for gossip."No, as a matter of fact, I am just as happy as I'm yesterday," he said in the most sincere voice he could manage for the moment. "I see," the lady nodded as to not impede his private life.As Jaiden walks up to the church he can see a line forming to get in. For a moment he thought that this service would be for a full house.Jaiden lets out a deep breath and prepares himself for the 10:00 am sermon. Meanwhile, Pastor Ha
"Uhm, your portfolio is kinda..." he slurred, placing his open palm just millimeters away from my face, "How should I put this…""Eccentric?" I asked. He gave me a dead look and answered, "Not quite….."From there, he started snapping his finger continuously, and with a sharp pause, he pointed at me then let out a word, "Aggressive! right… that's it. Especially this promotional poster…."I moved back involuntarily, and nearly fell backward over my seat, "Aggressive? But it is for an action-fantasy movie!"He reached out to steady me, and I knew he was reaching for my hand, "Darling, we are a production company that produces movies like "Cat In The Box
The solemn ground whispered a comforting tone as the gentle winds passed by dragging the autumn leaves slowly descending on the grassy floor.It was the height of noon and the sun was shining brightly at the blue skies, staring down the tombstone erected below. For a single point, a fair maid stood in silence as she looked down the grave, etched with memories of the deceased."Mom and Dad, have you been well? Sorry I wasn't able to visit for quite a while now," The girl in a daunting uniform said as she stood up on a well-furnished grave.The wind blew gently once more, swaying the wisps of her hair. She placed a bouquet of Hydrangea flowers on the grave and gazed at the distance zooming towards a dignified man approaching her.
As I was thinking of my miserable situation, a knock resounded on my door, "It is me, may I come in?" a gentle voice called me.That time I knew right away that it was Jaiden who was on the other side of the door. I quickly opened it and saw a decently dressed man on my doorstep."What made you visit, aren't you busy with your duties in the ministry, you even had additional counseling sessions on the weekends," I asked, since I'm worried for him."Why does it seem like you don't want to see me?" Jaiden asked. "Besides, I was just ordained recently, so I don't have much work load for now. You can say that I'm still in the process of being a full-pledge Pastor.""Fine, whatever. So why
"Manong Kokoy, just park the trike at the side…." I said as I went out of the vehicle."Naku, Mimi, are you really ok?" Manong Kokoy asked me.I gave him a silent nod and flatly answered him with a question, "Should I be alright?"I never gave it a second thought and went upstairs to see Natalie and Tatay at the doorstep. I fixed my shriveled hair and smiled with my busted lips.Seeing their expectant faces made me crestfallen. "What happened to you, did you get into a fight," Tatay asked, seeing my slightly beaten up face."It's nothing, Tatay," I said to make him less worried. "Anyway, Ate! What happened
The siren of the police moving away from the palace created a Doppler effect, as the sound slowly dissipated along the distance.I stared back at the ambulance bed, and Jaiden looked at me with a gentle smile. For some reason I can sense an uneasy expression in his face, "What's the matter with you two?" I asked Jaiden and Joseph who were suddenly avoiding my gaze."Oh, is it about the spy thing? I already knew… heard everything from Athena," I said casually."Wait… then you must've heard about Athena's father," Jaiden said leaning forward towards me.I smiled at him and nodded, "I also heard about it…"
