GOODBYE, SHIRLEY - Part2 of 7

Muli niyang tinanggal ang malaking shades, tiniklop at ipinatong sa mesa. Kagat-labing nag-angat siya ng paningin sa akin. The contact lenses made her brown eyes looked purple-red-brown. Hey eyes were asking for understanding. Asking for sympathy. Just like ten years ago, before I left her.

SISTER JULIE (OF CATHOLIC SCHOOL)

| |

First day of school.

I dropped my grade-one-daughter sa escuela. The principal wanted to talk to me, and let me sign something that allows our daughter to participate in any religious-school-activity. Although she was baptised outside a church, Methodist ang baptismal certificate niya.

GOODBYE, SHIRLEY - Part1 of 7

“Oh my… what happened? Sinong…” Napatayo ako sa aking kinauupuan, sa loob ng Ayala Twin Pizza Hut, nang tanggalin ni Shirley ang malaking Gucci shades na kumukubli sa kanyang mga mata. Hindi lang mata ang tinatakpan ng mamahaling shades kundi ang nagkulay-talong na paligid niyon.
