a call

Hello! Going back to the city that is full of smug and filth! This is my last day here in a perfect gateway that I call “secret place” and I am packing my things now. But of course I need to take a peek on my site, just a quick peek before i take the tedious 9-hour ride. Just a while ago, I was pretty busy looking for my things that has been scattered all over the pad then my cell phone rang , It’s my friend Kim. I knew that there’s something wrong with him 'cause he would never make a ring unless it’s very necessary or when he badly needs a thing. “where are you?”, he murmured. Though I was very excited to tell him where I was and how much fun I had, I kept my tone sympathetically but logical in approach, not mushy. I said, “What’s wrong”, “are you okay”, what happened”? I bombarded him with questions which for the fact that I knew he couldn’t even utter his problem.I sensed his gloom. Then I told him, “See you when I get there”, an assurance that I’d talk to him or even help him out, if I could. “Got to be going”, I said and I bid goodbye as if was really busy. But before I hang up the phone, I listened for a nick of time. He was still on the line, “all right, he isn’t really all right”, I thought. So I said “buddy are you okay” in a sincere tone. He replied, “I want someone to talk to, I was suspended from my work, I just want to resign”, in very dull tone that sounded like a kid who would cry in front of his mum. He’s not good and I felt the loneliness on the other end of the line. I told him to wait for me and we’d have a talk. Then he agreed and he hung up the phone. There are things that I realized from this matter - first, in real friendships though you’re not with a continuous communication, it will always be there, the bond that cannot be broken by the span of distance and time; secondly, how to listen and to be sensitive even on the phone, life might be at risk and your voice might be the real help; and lastly, how work define our personality. All right more thoughts to spill out but I really need to go now, haroo! Haroo! Need to finish packing. See yeah later alligator,lol.

yup, agree pre, there are talaga friends na even 1000yrs pa kayo hndi magkita(lol),kahit minsan nga nawawala na yung communication but then, parang nagkkaintindihan lang,andun pa din yung friendship,andun pa din yung thrill, parang wla pa din nagbago, that anytime you need each other andun pa din kayo para sa isa't isa..yun nga you may have lots lots of friends but too few lang yung matatawag mo talagang tunay na kaibgan.. keep it up pre!(parang nobela na to ah,wakokok,lol)
