A REASON FOR EVERYTHING…
Nothing ever happens for no reason… for everything under the sun has its reason… a purpose.
Jaime and Betchay’s young love was pure and true… but just like everything else in this world, nothing is for sure. Life played a trick on them, leaving them both brokenhearted. But, while one decided to forgive, thus freeing herself from the chain of pain…theother resolve to self-condemnation, and locked himself in guilt. Their failed love was the reason why the universe mapped another story that would bring them back together, for a different reason.
Julianna was the trick that life played on Jaime and Betchay. A lonely soul looking for love, she sought it from Jaime. But to Jaime, she was the reason for his failure… and soon, she, too become entrapped in a cold world he created for himself.
Chito was the hero, the one who saved Betchay from destruction, literally and figuratively… he literally saved her from jumping to her death… and figuratively, brought her from her demise. He became her reason to survive and live again.
Joaquin. The reason why Betchay gave up on Jaime. The reason why Jaime married Julianna… the only reason that kept the two together… The reason that would bind them together, forever.
Chichay. She is the fruit of a true love. Who would teach a lonely boy to believe in magic… who would show an unloved boy what love is. She is the reason the boy would learn to live again, dream again, believe again… but, she’s also the one who would bring about his death… and his resurrection. She is the dot that would connect all the dots in this circle of circumstances.
A SEASON UNDER THE SUN…
Like everything under the sun, there is a season for everything.
A time to love… Betchay and Jaime started a tale of love that would end in despair…
A time to hurt… Both dreamed for success and a blissful life together… but was forced to go their separate ways… one reached for success… the other a blissful life with a new love.
A time of chaos… A marriage without love… that bore a son who would grow up feeling unloved, unwanted. It was a tumultuous time where peace or love doesn’t exists.
A time for chance meeting… the sad little rich boy met the happy little poor girl… became best of friends… parted ways… only to meet again…
A time to grow… two clashing cymbals… from two different worlds… they became friends… fell in love…
A time to fall in love… just like his father who fell in love with her mother, they embarked on a journey that would test their will and question their heart.
A time to fight for love… again and again, they fought… they fell… they rose again… only to fall again…
A time to let go… one had to give up, but only to keep the other alive…
A time of chance meeting, again… when one has forgotten, fate sent the other… to bring back what was lost.
A time to heal… finally, after all the pain, hatred, confusion… comes forgiveness… then, healing.
Yes, life is but a cycle of never ending season… winter… spring… summer… autumn. Year in and year out, it’s always turning, always changing. It is full of sadness… and laughter… trials and triumphs… It’s up to us how to live those seasons.
TRUTH SETS US FREE
Finally, the secret that’s been weighing her down… is out! Julianna confessed and asked for forgiveness… And what a relief! All the baggage she’s been carrying seem to have been lifted from her. And all the lies she’s made up seem not to matter anymore. If only she didn’t allow her fear to control her, if only she trusted somebody, but she decided to keep it from everybody, not knowing that by hiding it, she was covering it with layers and layers of more lies… that soon, the small sin had become bigger than it really was!
She asked for forgiveness and it was granted to her. That was simpler than she imagined. Maybe it would be easier now to forgive herself!
With forgiveness, comes freedom… peace… and love. The family that she has been dreaming has become a reality. Dreams do come true, after all!
Like pieces in a puzzle, the last piece found its place. And the picture is complete.
THE BEST ENDING EVER
The best proposal ever was, for Joaquin, a tribute to that first day they met again… uhm, well, that would have been the third time, if we are going to count that day she bumped into him! A homage to that special day that would turn his life upside down… not to mention hers!
Joaquin: ”Chichay, best magic ever… will you marry me?”
Chichay: ”Ugh! Bad joke! Bad joke!”
Joaquin: ”Ibaba nyo ko! Ibaba nyo ko!”
Tampipi Boys: “Baba! Baba! Baba”
Chichay: “At nagsama ka pa talaga ng mga padrino mo?!”
Chichay: “Bahala ka! Isusumbong ko kayo ke Papa Bear!”
Papa Bear appears out of nowhere
Chichay: “Pati ikaw?”
Papa Bear: “Eh naniwala ako sa magic di ba?”
Chichay: “Anu ba yan eh…”
Joaquin: “Sorry… sorry na… gusto ko lang naman ng… best proposal ever…”
Chichay: “Puro ka best! Puro ka best! Pano kung nasaktan ka dun?! Pano kung nalaglag ka?! Pano kung… pano kung ano… Pwede naman kasing mag-propose ka, o habang nagaabang tayo ng jeep. Habang kumakain ako ng cake, ilagay mo yung singsing dun! Habang naunuod tayo ng sine, kahit ano! Di naman kasi importante yun, eh… Ang importante sa akin, yung best ending ever natin… At ang best ending para sa akin, yung magkasama tayo hanggang sa tumanda, hanggang sa malaglag na lahat ng ngipin natin, hanggang sa magrebelde na yung mga robots, hanggang sa tumigil umikot yung mundo. Basta ayokong mawawala ka sa tabi ko.” This was probably the best- answer- ever that Joaquin ever heard and would ever hear! This kind of speech was, in the past, a Joaquin line, something only he would say… but today, he heard it from Chichay! And he knew he didn’t even have to ask… because she already answered and it’s what he wanted to hear. Still…
Joaquin: ”Sorry na ha?… sorry na… sorry na pooo… sorry na pooo…O sige, titigilan ko na tong mga best, best, best kong anu-ano…pero, ibigay mo na tong isang ‘to sa akin. Yung sinasabi mong best ending ever.”
Chichaycried with a groan and laughter
Joaquin: “Chichay? Will you marry me?”
Chichay looked at her father and the Tampipi boys and got a nod and a thumbs up!
Chichay: “Oo na!” with a cry, she threw herself at Joaquin!
Joaquin: “I love you”
Chichay: “I love you”
Ahhh, the moon shone on them that day… probably smiling down on these two lovers who once made a promise on a moonlit night … No …you can not see the moon on a broad daylight… but it’s there! @}—-
