Snippets from Cedric Maca*
Cedric: Putang ina, oo! Malay mo she just thinks you’re being friendly. You need to let her know because otherwise, she’ll just think you’re a good driver, errand boy, fuck buddy (FUBU), etc. Once I was just being friendly to a girl, then suddenly she said, “Yes, sinasagot na kita.” Hindi ko masabi na hindi ko siya nililigawan. But what the fuck, wala naman ako girlfriend that time, okay naman siya. Sige na nga!
~ Episode 1: Courtship
Cedric: When we were having family problems because of my dad’s infidelity, I realized that I wanted to have my own family. It felt right that time. I was so down and I knew that my epicurean princess would understand and make me feel better. We had been together for almost 5 years. I thought it was the perfect time to pop the question. I fetched her from her lola’s house and dropped her at La Salle.
We were in my car when I asked her, “Nana, can we get married na? I only have this much money. I can only give you a simple wedding, not the grand wedding that you dreamed of.” I don’t exactly remember how it went but this is the line that struck me the most, “I still want to finish my Masters. Sorry, hindi mo maibibigay yung luho ko.”
I was stunned, something inside me snapped and I was silent. I was thinking, “Five long years meant nothing?” I practically gave her my life, my money, and most importantly my time. All wasted.
