It needed no reply, for I was on my way to the football field. I immediately saw his car parked in an awkward direction.
"Did you just arrive?" I asked.
"Actually, I'm trying to work on how to get out of parking. I always suck at crammed parking spaces," he said with a very cute childly expression, the one where you need to give the kid some assurance after getting three stars instead of five.
"I figured. You parked okay, should I maneuver it for you?"
"Better. I'll stay outside. I'll be driving the minute you get me out of this trap."
So, he brought me to Tagaytay, the second of Luzon's three summer capitals. We drove to his place and stayed at the rest house. We dined and after eating, drove some more. We filled ourselves with the cold and the scenery, however foggy.
Our second to the last stop was a coffee shop. There, I met his childhood friends, and his best friend. Fridays are their chill out days, and his best friend told me that James rarely brings a friend to drink coffee and have a chat with them. I remember and quote @IMGoryo tweeting me,
@green_breaker ayiiiii! ikaw na! (sabagay, ang batayan ng mga taong may maayos na handling sa relasyon ay ung may set of childhood friends)
I asked why, and he said that a sense of commitment with long-time friends is an indication of a good relationship with one's lover. With that, I felt vindicated! Plus, he rarely brings a friend!
We laughed a lot, talked about a lot of things. But I hope they didn't have weird questions running on their minds, like, Close friend nga lang ba? Both of us hide in the closet, well, for me, I have my middle finger out sometimes. LOL
Back to the house, and had something up.. I was sitting on the couch and he approached me, saying,
"We have the house for ourselves," with an evil grin. Honeymoon? After that, he drove me home, I slept on him during the trip. He tried bugging me by playing loud rock songs, we had a pillow fight and eventually I fell asleep. Boo. Talo siya. Hihi.
Have a good night.... :)
