“Do you write??” I jolted as my friend ask this question.
“Damn! Heira ! I said don’t touch anything!” I ran to her and I saw her holding my old notebook.
“Woah! Oh! You write poem too!” She exclaimed .” You write pretty well although your handwriting is a bit of a mess..but they are good read, Kate.” She said looking amazed.
Did she just compliment my writings? Oh! That was first! It feels good and I think I just blushed.
“So, you wrote these?”
“A-ahh.. Yes, but I already stop writing. This is from way back then.” I answered , reaching out my old notebook in Heira’s hands.
“What do you mean “why?”, I need to stop .” I sarcastically said.
“Because I’m supposed to do something else. Something that is more important than this.”
“I don’t get it. You’re a writer , r-right? How can you just ..stop?”
“Well, that’s life.” I sigh. “I just need to stop to focus on my future.”
“You can do both.” She said as if she’s suggesting me to write while studying Math.
“Hmm..who would dare to be call a ‘writer’ when day and night she holds a calculator on her right hand and a survival table on her left? Tell me.” I challenge her.
“ME!” She chuckled.
I frown a bit and smile thinking that she’s just joking around.
“Come here! I’ll show you..”
After an hour or so..
“So, would you like to do a collab?” Heira asked.
“Hmm..Let me pick a good usernane first.” I said totally forgetting the pain of the past.
After all, writing is my first and forever love. It was painful to write at first but that how love is..maybe there’s a pain but it will all be worth it in the end.
