Greatest X

Everyone has a story of the one who got away.

Here is mine.

Raft3r met her through a blind date. 

At first glance, she appeared to be the typical kolehiyala – snobbish, gorgeous, stylish, and high maintenance. That was the attraction.

We got along great. We liked the same things. 

We were both horror movie fanatics. Isn’t that romantic?

On my birthday, I got the biggest surprise of my life.

Raft3r received a phone call from her.

Although we were dating, she never bothered to ask for my home number. So to receive a call from her was like an orgasm multiplied a hundred times over.

Raft3r asked how she got my number.

She said she looked through the phone book and called everyone listed under my last name. Our number was not even published in the directory.

She spoke with one of my uncles and introduced herself. He then gave her my number. I blushed.

Flattery is such a wonderful birthday present.

A few days later, Rafter stopped pursuing her. What’s the point? I already knew she liked me. It was time for a new challenge.

I know. You don't have to tell me. I'm a coward.

Some things are better left bitin sometimes.. that way you still leave with happy thoughts. Just wanted to say that. Wala lang..

Raft3r said...

coriander dreams, Well said. I'll remember that.

Andy Briones said...

I get your drift.

I read an interview with Madonna before, and she said that she wants someone unattainable as opposed to someone who's head-over-heels in love with her.

It's the thrill of the hunt, I think.

The Scud said...

you broke her heart. and a wasted opportunity. i remember a friend of mine who did pretty much the same thing to a guy she liked. the guy ignored her after. she was pissed. nawalan ata ng thrill ung guy when she made the first move. hehe...

Raft3r said...

andy briones, It's more of the fear of commitment. Hehe

the scud, Nix pic. Panalo! Where can I get one?

bestfriend said...

sabi na nga ba fear of commitment na naman ito

Raft3r said...

bestfriend, Patapos na ang Pebrero. Patapos na rin ang love posts. Finally. Hehe

Wendy said...

Napatawad ka na ba ng ex mo na yan? Kasi imagine baka nagdevelop sya ng kalyo sa kamay kakacontact sa kung sinu-sino na kapareho mo ng last name. Grabe ang effort, di ba? At ikaw naman imbes na matuwa e nagtago pa yata later on. Hehehe, men are from mars talaga.

Andy Briones said...

You remind me of Will, the guy from Nick Hornby's About a Boy. Ehehe. :p

Elyong said...

I don't know if the thrill of the hunt is what you like or you're just plain coward as you said.. hahah... kidding..

Your link is in my blog... find it.. there's a thrill in hunting.. hehehe..

Ganns said...

You're a strange one, Charlie Brown... I mean, Raft3r.

laieesha said...

ito ba ung naging stalker mo?? hahaha

i guess she had to keep the hunt going. keep you interested and wanting more. if she's unable to do it, i guess ok na rin na u let go. we girls are known to do everything we can to get close to a boy, so you'll find someone else who will do that... and more... hehehe

prinsesamusang said...

len said...

Unrequited effort? hehehe
I pity your ex.

Raft3r said...

the scud, I'm gonna get one. Right now. Hehe

len, You don't pity me? Tsk, tsk.

rP said...

Ting!! Now I know why a "Special friend" just suddenly disappear. One thing I don't understand with men is that they just leave you hanging. No dead end signs.

Raft3r said...

rP, We are incapable bastards. That's why.

Jas said...

baka siya rin alam niya na-pipi ka. sayang, happy siya, could have been your world's best detective!

Raft3r said...

jas, Nyahaha. Nancy Drew ba? Hehe
