Maybe all Filipinos already heard the mysterious place called Biringan. It was said that this place only chooses people who wants to see it, and if you're the chosen one, I don't know if I'll call you 'lucky' or 'ill-fated'.
Maria was a province girl in Samar. She's very smart and has been a good daughter to her parents. Her school was an hour away from her home, and since she's living in a province area, there were no available transportation, except walking.
Every weekdays, she had to wake up early just to get ready for her school. Her parents were both farmers, and Maria was their only daughter, so she's been her parents' happiness.
"I have to go now, ma pa", uttered by Maria as she was running away from them. She woke up late and had to run fast for her to reach her first subject. She saw his friend Diego, who as well her classmate, and immediately called him as he was also running ahead of her in the road. "Hey, Diego wait for me!", saying while she was catching her breath from running.
"Lucky we didn't miss our first subject, Diego", as they were entering their room. Diego and Maria has been friends since they were 3. Her mom and his mom were once a colleagues, but Diego mom died while giving birth to him, while his father left him after a year her mother died. Diego was raised now by his grandparents who now served as his parents. "Maria, I can't walk with you after class. Francisco asked me join him to look for spiders. I'll wager, Francisco will lose our betting game", as they were preparing to end their last subject. "Treat tomorrow Diego if you'll win against Francisco".
They were dismissed at 5 in the afternoon. The estimated time to reach home was on or before 6 p.m. Maria was used to walk every afternoon with Diego, but Diego couldn't walked with her, she took her steps faster.
After 20 minutes of walking, she heard something very noisy from the background. There were lots of big trees surrounded on the road, and since she's living in the province, it was expected that the road will be emptied after 6 pm, so Maria had to go home fast. But, she got caught when she heard many people laughing. She heard loud musics, people singing, like these people were having a big party.
Out of curiosity, Maria followed where the noise came from. As she got closer to the place, she was shocked and amazed at how good the village was.
"I didn't know there is a place like this in our province", as she was saying it in owe. The place was surrounded by good looking people. The place was dazzling, like it was literally very bright that you could hardly see it.
She was hiding behind on a big tree while looking at them dancing and laughing gracefully. "Do you want to join? ", heard a soft voice from her back. "Oh, sorry, I was just looking around and got stuck here, I'll be going home, bye", said it with a mix of panicked as she hurriedly ran away from the girl, without even looking at her. But, for some reason, the girl mysteriously was in front of her already. She was shocked, but she got lost in mind when she noticed how good her features were.
"Hi Maria, I am Carolina, I saw you earlier looking at us and I want you to come join us."
Carolina was smiling at her, she had these angelic features that will make everyone lures into her command. Maria was still in owe seeing how beautiful Carolina was, that she didn't noticed how did Carolina knew her name. She had this porcelain- morena-like skin, her eyes were brown, her lips was perfectly heart shaped, and her hair was long.
"Maria, they are waiting for you", and she finally realized how she got called by her name.
