On Sponge Cakes and Waiting

Been dormant for a loooong time now. While I haven’t come up with a new post (‘coz my brain is in semi-hibernation period), here’s another post from my blog from a long time ago that I think each of us could use one way or another. I hope. 😉 (I did edit some parts, though.)

She gave him the present she made for him in secret and in haste, trying hard not to show any emotions that hinted a feeling of sadness. Tomorrow, he’s leaving, and there’s no assurance that they would see each other again. Today, all she wanted to do was to get over the whole process of saying goodbye and start to move on. All the time they were together, she treated him like she did to everyone else she knew. He treated her more nicely — no, specially — than he treated others. She took him for granted — pretended to take him for granted. She actually felt something not so ordinary for him, too, but she’s never the type who would nurture a feeling like that or admit having a feeling like that. Continue reading
