— literati challenge— FEARbetter late than never….. a good way for me to start my February bouncing back.

I was ten years old then. I was listening to a radio program “Angelito Celestial” when I heard Jan-jan (short for Johnny) shouting hysterically, “Aswang! Nakakita ako ng aswang!” I minimized the radio volume and opened the window which was adjacent to their window. I listened until tears descent from my eyes from laughing. Here is his story.

Johnny is eleven years old. He fears no one, not even the bully boys nor anyone in the neighborhood. He loves to tell and retell stories, and he produces sounds with his lips when he tells his stories that amuse the listeners.

Niight, around eight in the evening, his ate tells him to go and buy bread in a nearby store. Johnny, who is brave, takes the paper bill from his ate and walks to the store. He reached the place in one piece. He steps on a small tree trunk designed as a step-on for the small ones to reach the store window. He peaks in and when he saw someone in the store, he said excitedly, “Pabili nga po ng tinapay, yung sinasawsaw sa kape.” He smiles as he thinks of the bread he will eat.

He gives the paper bill and takes the bread. He waits for the change before he leaps off the step-on and runs to their home.
On his way home, from nowhere, someone touches his shoulder. He did not notice anyone coming near him so he turns around to see who it is.

Instead, he sees a dark face and two red eyes glaring at him with sharp teeth. He hears the creature murmur like a dog.

He suddenly jumps back and runs towards their house crying, “Aswang! Aswang!”

He jumps over their gate which is about his chest high. He kicks the door and blubbers, “Nakakita ako ng aswang! Nakakita ako ng aswang.”

His ate laughs and tries to calm him, telling there is no aswang, but Johnny is so convinced that aswangs exist – and he just saw one.

There are knocks on the door and an old woman comes in wearing a very thick jacket with the hood over her head. She is their neighbor; her house parallel to their house.

She explains:

“Nakita ko si Johnny kanina at nilapitan ko. Tinanong ko kung andito ang mama nya… e bigla nalang kumaripas ng takbo at nagsisisigaw, kaya sinundan ko sya.”

Then everybody laughs.
This story, however, Johnny failed to retell.

Nang Umibig Ako

Chapter 1

“Aray!” ang katagang namutawi sa mga labi ni Persofina nang may isang malaking katawan ang bumundol sa kanya. Napaupo siya at tumilapon ang kanyang mga hawak hawak na mga papel.

Ilang araw na din siyang naghahanap ng trabaho. Napagdesisyonan niyang tumigil muna sa pag-aaral dahil narin sa hirap ng buhay. Ayaw niyang mas lalong mahirapan ang kanyang mga magulang sa pagkayod at pagtustos sa kanya kung kayat napag-isipan niyang tumulong nalang sa kanila sa paghahanap buhay.

Ang kanyang ama ay si Pedro at ang kanya namang ina ay si Sofia. Ang kanyang pangalang Persofina ay mula sa pinaghalong pangalan ng mga ito. (more…)

She was the envy of many. She got all what she wanted – boys, things, and she was one step ahead to the limelight of stardom. There never was a time that she was ignored by boys for she was the fantasy of every Adam, and she got friends who always were jealous of her luscious beauty, thinking why they were not blessed with the same. With just a smile, she would perturb the guys… but that was until one day, when she realized she did not have everything she wanted.

She glanced at herself for the last time on the big-sized mirror before she made her way out of the house to meet her boyfriend. She was wearing an old faded fit blue jeans that showed her big sexy butt and long legs. She paired it with a red short shirt. On top of her shirt was an open black jacket that suited her well, (more…)
