Prologue

I'm just chilling at my chair when our professor looked at me seriously. "Ms. Madrigal! Ano nanaman ba 'tong nasa answer sheet mo?" Galit nanaman ata si Sir.

Napa tayo ako at tumingin ng mata sa mata kay Sir. "Po? What's wrong with my answer sheet, Sir?" Magalang na Tanong ko.

"Wala kang answer, Ms. Madrigal! Puro blanko ang nandito! Gusto mo rin bang blanko ang card mo?!" Galit na talaga si Sir.

Na bigla ako nang tumayo si Amaya. "I'm sorry Sir. Napuyat po kasi si Andi kagabi kaya hindi po siya masyadong nakapag aral." I smiled.

'And my bestfriend saves the day!' Sigaw ko sa isip ko.

Pagkatapos ng long quiz namin ay break time na kaya naman niyaya ko si Amaya na mag pasta sa cafeteria. "Salamat, Aya! You're my hero na talaga!" At niyakap ko siya pero ang tongek binatokan ako. "Aray!"

"Sabi sa 'yong mag aral ka e!" Galit na sabi niya sa akin.

I pouted. Gabi-gabi pumupunta siya sa condo unit ko para tabihan akong mag-aral ngunit tumatakas naman ako. Sa sobrang boring ko habang tinuturoan ako ng Aya ay tumatakas ako. Kunwari lang na pupunta ako sa CR pero lalabas talaga ako ng Condo at pupunta sa Bar. Ewan ko ba pero hindi ako na kokonsensiya sa mga pinag gagawa ko. Even though ganyan ako kay Aya, she never leaves me, She never gives up and she's always by my side. I love her more than this whole planet.

Nasa states ang Mommy at Daddy ko kasama nila ang older brother ko at and step sister ko. They want me to come with them pero ayaw ko dun. Alam ko namang e ho-home school lang din nila ako. Unlike din sa Older brother ko, He's a Damn freakin nerd. Oo, Nerd ang isang yun, Walang ibang ginagawa kundi mag basa, mag research at mag aral. Pero wag ka, Gwapo rin yun.

My parents has high expectations for me. Just like other kids na nacocompare sa ibang tao like, 'Tingnan mo si Ano! Si 'yan! Yung kapit bahay! Ang Ate mo! Mga pinsan mo!"' Palagi din akong na cocompare ni Daddy sa Brother ko pag sobrang baba ng grades ko. He keeps saying na ako sana yung babae dapat ako ang tutulong sa Brother ko sa pag aaral niya pero naging baliktad, Instead ang lalakeng kapatid ko ang tumuturo sakin.

Pero just like the way Aya teaches me, tumatakas din ako. Ayaw ko talaga mag aral. I hate it so much it makes me vomit and lose my mind.

"What's the point? We all die anyway," Sagot ko kay Aya. "Makakapag tapos parin naman ako Kahit hindi ako mag aaral. Masyado naman kayong nag fofocus diyan! Sometimes we need a break you know? Let's have some fun! Throw those books you're holding and grab a can of beer! We only live once, let's enjoy it while we can!" 

Pero sa halip na ngiti ang makikita ko kay Aya ay disappointment ang bumungad sakin. She really cares for me so much.

Nang iwan na ako ng parents ko at ng brother ko ay nag decide na ako na mag enroll dito sa mamahaling university. First week palang ng school ay puro zero na scores ko. Siguro nga ang highest score ko sa mga short quizzes namin is 6/20? Oo 'yan ata.

I don't have friends. And I don't want to have any. For me kasi I don't need anyone to be with me, I can handle my self. I have money, Condo unit, Beautiful dresses, Fancy bags and Syempre the looks! Or should I say... I'm the most beautiful girl in this university? Yes I am.

But I didn't expect one day to have a friend of my own. No, let me erase that... I didn't expect a damn spoiled brat like me to be the best friend of a kind, beautiful and smart woman. She's my classmate, It was when our teacher gave us an activity and I don't really know how to answer it properly. It has direction written on top on how to answer it but I'm to lazy to read those. That's when Aya showed up. She helped me and for the first time ever I actually got my self a perfect score. Even my Teacher was very shock we he saw my activity sheet.

Simula nung araw na yun ay palagi na kaming magkasama ni Aya. She's the opposite of me naman, She's also the daughter of the Mayor and she has a cafe called Cafe de Aya.

"You need to study well Andi, sometimes you need to listen to me, kung gusto mong makapag tapos at maging successful pakinggan mo ako, hindi sa lahat ng oras ikaw ang tama at mali ang pinag sasabi ko." Tumingin ako sakanya at inakbayan siya.

I sighed. "Yeah, right."

Nag order na nga kami ni Aya ng favorite launch namin which is Pasta. "I need to tell you something," Tumigil ako sa pagkain at tiningnan siya. "Diba summer break na next next week?" I nodded. "Daddy wants me to go with them to their province to have our summer there."

I looked at him sadly. "Does that mean I'm alone this summer?" I ask Aya.

She took a sip at her apple juice. "I guess so? But don't worry I'll call you and text you every hour kaya wag kang mag alala." She said. "And next next week pa naman yun. Medyo matagal pa,"

"Hanggang kailan kayo doon?"

Napa isip pa muna siya saka sumagot. "Until summer ends? I don't know." Sagot niya saka nag kibit balikat.

I pouted.

"Come on! Just promise me you'll behave and avoid going to the bars already! Wala kang makukuha sa pag ba-bar mo. There's this thing you call 'books' try it."

Bumalik na kami sa classroom namin and our teacher announced na cancelled muna ang class dahil sa Malakas na Hangin. Aya decided to sleep at my condo tonight kasi malapit Lang din naman sa university. Before we went to the condo pumunta muna kami sa Seven Eleven at bumili ng snacks for tonight.

When we arrived dumiretso na ako sa bathroom para mag shower while Aya is obviously studying again. Pagkatapos ko ay sumunod naman siya so while waiting for her nanonoud muna ako ng Netflix.

Nang matapos na siya ay sabay na kaming nanoud ng Netflix. I even forgot to mention that Me and Aya likes to watch Anime. Now, we are watching the new episodes of AOT (Attack on Titan)

"Alam mo ba end game daw si Armin tsaka Annie." I said trying to trigger Aya. "Armin even confessed to Annie! It's sweet right?"

"Not funny." I laugh, Aya likes Armin so much that I even caught her crying over Armin's Picture. "Did you know that Eren is the father of Historia's baby? Huh?" Natigilan ako nang sinabi ni Aya 'yon.

"Hindi pa alam uy! Wala pang may alam kung sino ang Ama, huwag kang advance!" Galit na sabi ko.

I stopped when I realize Aya is also trying to trigger me. We stared at each other saka dahan dahang tumayo at humarap sa isa't isa. Ang kaninang naka ngiti naming mga mukha ay naging seryoso, Naka tingin ako sa mga mata niya and so is she. Nang maging seryoso na kami ay sumigaw kami ng..

"Shinzou woo, Sasageyo!"

Sigaw namin habang naka salute ang aming mga kamay sa dibdib at tumawa ng malakas.

"Grabi! Same na same ang vibes natin, Aya." Patuloy parin ako sa pag Tawa.

"Sa Anime lang. Hindi tayo same Vibes sa lahat kasi ikaw," Tinuro niya ako. "Puro ka bar at ako naman puro libro." Napa tigil ako at tiningnan siya na kanina pa pala seryoso ang tingin sa akin.

Humiga ako sa couch. "Hayy, Aya! You're always ruining the fun! Just like what I told you sometimes you need a break!"

"Today's not the time to take a break Andi. Alam mong malapit na ang Final exam and yet you're still not serious!"

Napa pikit nalang ako. Oo, Gusto kong pumasa. I mean, Sino ba namang ayaw? May pangarap din ako pero sadyang ayaw ko talagang mag aral nang mag aral lang. "Just let me be." Tahimik na sabi ko at humiga sa couch.

Napagdesisyunan ko na sanang matulog nang maramdaman ko ang kamay ni Aya sa pisngi ko. Hindi niya ata alam na gising pa ako. "I want you to Reach your Dream, Andi you're so deep behind that it makes it so difficult for you to Reach the Above." And after that I felt a warm blanket covering my body.

She's really an angel. She's an ideal best friend. Maswerte ako dahil isa ako sa naging kaibigan niya. I don't even know what I did to deserve her. Siya ang hindi swerte sa akin... I'm not an ideal friend to everyone. But it feels different when someone really appreciates you for what you are.. not because of your behavior, your looks, the connections, money or anything. Amaya loves me just the way I am.
