As I walked fast along the sidewalk, stopping and waiting to cross the road, I saw you on a purple parasol. Cold sweat ran into my face after you shouted my name on the opposite side of the road. Waving, I shoutedback, saying "wana kai exam? pauli na ka?".I mean, I know that she's homeward bound, so what am I thinking, asking those questions? Still, she replied: wala naman,labang na huwatun taka".My heart raced in a skipbeat, if such condition even existed, for I can't tell what I felt that afternoon.

As I reached the other side of the road, she propped her parasol and offered me a shade, saying: "naniudto naka? dali ihatud taka nag ininsik nasad kag mata aie hehe",I was embarrassed and speechless; to think a girl offered me to company me to school, and even go as far as offering me a shade! I asked if she had taken her lunch, and she said yes, barring an opportunity to treat her. But hell! Why am I thinking of treating her for lunch when in fact, I'm on a rush for my exam starts soon.As we stroll along the sidewalk (stroll, for it was slow), we talked over things "business related" and such. Yet I find it hard to focus, for as my ears were busy listening, I can't take my eyes off her face; sweaty yet still projecting the very aura straight from that of a beauty queen!

Minutes passed fast , but it is as if my mind registered a different timezone, for it was long enough for my imagination to play and I'm experiencing a jet lag! As I entered the front gate, she waved back at me saying: pangitaa nya si ate ha? ngaon ta batchoi unya gabii hihi". Sure, why not? I said, with a big smile on the face.

The exam was due for 2 hours, but I answered all the questions and finished early; barely spending 15 mins of the allotted time! It was relatively easy, for I remembered everything I crammed the night before! My brain was unnaturally "healed", for it was a pain to memorize those codes.Was it because of the positive vibes brought by the lady in the parasol? I don't know for sure. But I wish to believe anyway. Thank you, my lady!

There is more than dust in the air.

Note: It is not advisable to use a parasol under the rays of the sun; might as well use an umbrella. There is a difference between the two. Just saying
