He was 13 years old that time, living the life of a grade-6 kid who knows nothing about sex and love. He’s good at playing video games though, and internet was not hip at that time so he has more time for himself in the real world rather than the cyber one.
He was living with his mom and his 1-year old niece. His sister was not there because she has a job in another town. His daily routine is to go to school, go home and play his favorite video games. Sometimes, he plays with his niece.
It was Friday that day. He was happy for the coming weekend, who wouldn’t? He would have all the time to play all day. Just thinking of it makes him excited. After the teacher dismissed the class, he rushed to his home running. He threw his bag on the corner of his room and changed his clothes in a flash. Suddenly, he heard a loud knock on his door.
It was her mom. She wants him to go to his aunt’s house to get the stuffed toy that his aunt bought for his niece. He didn’t want, but he has to. He let a deep sigh out, and with his shoulders down, he marched out to go to his aunt’s.
The house was not that far. You could ride a tricycle, or walk for 15 minutes to find it. He chose to walk. It was 6pm when he arrived at the house. The sky was kinda gray that time, the light and dark color of the clouds was clashing with each other.
He was there. The big red house, built in front of him, was standing still. It was staring at him, saying “I am the boss of everyone here.” After all, it was the biggest house in the neighborhood. He entered, the sound of rust and age was heard as he turned the gate. He knocked at the door.
A man, with an age of 25, standing 5’9 in height, has dark-skinned color with a touppe-ish hair appeared when the door was opened. He was dead serious and kinda scary. He would be fine to play those mysterious killers on some of the horror movies. It was his cousin.The boy smiled awkwardly. He entered the house. He was told to sit down and wait.
Minutes after and his cousin came back. Holding the medium stuffed-toy. He couldn’t figure it out if it was a llama or a camel. Anyway, he didn’t care at all. All he wants is to get what he needs to get to go home and play his video game. He was about to get it and leave when his cousin stopped him.
He was informed that his auntie wasn’t there. That makes them two alone in the house. His cousin said that he should stay and wait for their aunt. “If you put it that way, then.. Okay.” the boy sat on the couch. He was surprised when his cousin lay on his lap. He could feel his cousin’s head on his privates. But then again, he was just a kid. None of these actions meant something to him. He was just a kid.
They played. They made jokes. They laughed. He liked it. He never had a brother, and his father never had a time for him so he was excited to play with an older figure of a man. Throughout their games, he could notice that his cousin furtively touched his what’s-not-touch. It was okay when it happened for one time, but then it happened again for twice and the third time. He was beginning to be suspicious, but he was just a kid. And he’s enjoying that time with his cousin.
After that, his cousin went to his room and called him. He hesitated. But his cousin pulled. He has no choice. His cousin said that they would play a video game. The boy got excited and quirky again when he heard that. But when they went to the room, all he see was a bed, a divider, a mirror and cabinet.
“Where is the video game? Do you have a playstation? Did Kuya Bryan lend you his playstation?” The boy asked, a little bit puzzled. He was referring to his other cousin who has a playstation. His cousin just shook his head, and smiled slowly. “Gameboy then? Brick game? What?” He was still enthusiastic on guessing.
“I have a better game.”
“What is it?” the kid asked.
His cousin closed the door, then turn the switch of the lights off.

The doctor put his hand on her arm and said gently, “You or the baby will survive. Not both. I’m sorry.”
Her hands went suddenly cold. She felt a big plunge right into her heart. So these things really do happen.. she thought these kinds of scenario only exists in television dramas. This is insane.
She let out a very deep sigh, so deep someone could bury a dead body on it and no one would notice. What is she gonna do? If she let her baby live, she can’t bear the thought of it growing alone without her. The father leaving them both is enough, she wouldn’t want her baby to grow into an orphanage.
She can see that the baby will grow into a rebellious man and can be one of the plague of the society. She knows those things happen to the kids who grew without parents.
But she can’t take to choose herself over the poor little creature. She have done a lot of things in her life, and yet the baby’s just beginning his. It’s unfair.
She felt lightheaded. It’s the pressure, it must be it, she thought. She felt a twinge of something in her stomach too, it must be her baby, shouting “Do what’s best, mama!”
Tears are starting to form on her eyes. She cleared her throat and tries her best not to sound she’s about to cry.
“Doctor, I’ve made up my mind.” she said.
The doctor’s smiled sadly. “So.. what’s the decision?”
She smiled bitterly as she opened her mouth to say the one thing that would change her life forever.
I love those people you can joke around with and have so much fun with and then have a deep conversation with and it’s not weird at all
The fact that the one guy throws down his bag and goes to save the guy, but then he realizes he’s too late. And if you continue watching him, he like throws his hands up and then turns away. He probably feels disappointed that he couldn’t help, but he tried. I bet he didn’t even know the guy. And that really makes me not lose faith in everyone.
