almost a surprise

tired and soaking wet from the heavy downpour, i went down to have dinner at half past eight. it would be another ten-minute walk to the canteen and for someone who has been work-laden the whole day, i look forward to having a sumptuous meal before retiring and calling it a day.

as i walked past the lady guard, i heard her call my name.

sir john stanley, may package ka.

she handed me a big lbc-printed plastic bag. earlier in the day, i received a message from someone asking me if something has already arrived in the mail. this is what he's talking about then.

thanks.

as soon as i entered the canteen, i opened the box to see what's inside. i couldn't suppress a smile as i saw his gifts. he's such a sweet fellow. and his timing is just perfect.

a curious colleague stopped by my side for a while to look.


"pare, uso na pala yan ngayon? lalake na binibigyan ng ganyan..."

i remember answering him with a non-sensical hehehe. my mind started wandering already as happy thoughts surged inside.

i called him up to say thanks. babawi ako sa weekend, i added.

ten-minutes after our conversation, my phone was ringing again.

sir, you're needed back now.
