Day 2 (Stranded)
Iām still sleepy but I have to wake up. Everybodyās up and I canāt stay lurking in my āwooden chair bedā because itās where everybody is supposed to sit. I sat still, dragging my thoughts to the present when I saw Rommel. I asked how his arm was but he just ignored me. The nerve! I ignored him from then on too. But I canāt help overhearing him complaining and talking to others about how awful his right arm felt. Tired but numb. I sarcastically told him how he could tell itās awful when his right arm was numb. Ur not suppose to feel when ur numb aight? He then snapped retorting thatās why itās awful because he couldnāt feel anything. I went to him, took my earrings and jab it in his arms hard and was surprised he didnāt flinch. I suddenly felt an ugly creeping guilt. The group was teasing him that he is going to be impotent all his lifeā. And then he gave me a contemptuous look. Thereās no one else to blame but me. The same moment I ran off to the kitchen and cried hard. What did I do to deserve all this unlucky events? I spent a few minutes there crying until Iāve bee called for breakfast. Haha! I was so scared I cause something grave to someone. Iām 21, I shouldnāt be a cry baby but I canāt help it. I just feel so awful. If the people have not waited for me to join them at breakfast I wouldnāt stop crying. Hahaha. They actually asked Rommel to come to me to say that his alright. It was such a dramatic scene Iām so embarrassed about it. Haha! So eventually I was able to collect my bearings and went to the kitchen to apologize for the wait and the public display of emotion. But just when I entered the room I was welcomed with teasing and laughter. Yeah yeah, I looked so so ugly. I was okay then, i ate away and wished I was home.
After breakfast, Vera the person we asked to buy the tickets for us, text that thereās no ferry allowed to travel because thereās a typhoon coming in a few hours.
I couldnāt believe whats happening to me. That means Iām going to be absent from work? Whoa.. crazy! I no longer want to be involved with the problem at hand. So Elvie took care of it. The rest of us kept ourselves busy with drinking the left redhorse, watching tv, sleeping, txting while me on the other hand played ādamaā with Fritz. It was a boring game because I kept on winning (haha). And we made an agreement that the person who losses at one game will drink a glassful of water. He was bloated with water already but I havenāt had my gulp yet. He quit and Rommel fill his place and all the same I was always winning though at some point I deliberately lose to him, hahaha. Iām no longer having fun so I decided to take a bath and go to sleep. Just when I got to the kitchen to go to the washroom I was grabbed by one of Elvieās agent that was so drunk. It was the craziest and so far the longest drunken conversation I ever had (considering it was my first time to talk with someone who was heavily drunk, haha). It was really scary because the tomboy who cornered me has the tendency to get violent. I donāt want to be slapped at or shoved to the wall. So she was gripping me for an hour and I got tired from agreeing at her. Smiling if she said I was frowning. Getting serious if she tells me Iām just making fun of her and tried being funny when she said Iāve been too serious. And acted smart when she tried asking where my common sense was. It was one heck of a time reversing my mood according to her comments so sheāll not hit me. She was asking me where my common sense was. And why I was so dull. She was mad with Elvie and since Elvie and I are friends shes also mad at me. It was only in the trip that Ive known her how come she was accusing me repeatedly that I was stupid I think I donāt really look like one, do i? I didnāt talk my way out because she was drunk and it will just lengthen the conversation. Nobody else can help me because she gets overly active and defensive when somebody gets near me or say near us. Help came when Vera arrived, her close friend. She was able to divert her attention away from me. I immediately bath and after that slept in the nipa hut. When I woke up the people where gone. I presumed that they went to the beach and had fun. So I went to the kitchen to help myself get lunch when I saw the drunken girl. She was now polite and kind of courteous; you know almost bowing down when she talks to you. I donāt want to be alone with her so instead of getting something to eat, I decided to leave the house. Just so I wouldnāt look obvious in avoiding her, I slowly walked out and shouted at her from the door (at least if Iāll be attack, im ready to run) that Iām going to the beach and asked her if sheāll come with me. I was thankful she said NO. haha..
Nothing much happened. Everybody was preparing for tomorrow departure back to Cebu. We had festive dinner and I volunteered to wash the pile of dishes. it was tedious work. I was so tired when I finished, I directly went to my sofa chair and slept like a log.
Day 3 (Homeward bound)Woke up early and waited for a ājeepers creepersā to drive us to Tagbilaran where weāll ride the ferry to bring us to Cebu. Before that we dropped in a store were we bought pasalubongs for our friends. Glad the weather is favorable, i couldn't wait to get home.
