I have read the prompt 6 of Ms. @JonicaBradley yesterday and it gave me an idea of what to write today. The new prompt is about "Cheating". And today I will write an article based on a true story.
This is a story of a girl who fell in love in the wrong time and with the wrong man. How will she dealt with the consequences? Is she ready to face the world full of mockery? Will she accept her destiny? If you're interested, please continue reading this. (Choooorr!, Go self! Haha)
I have known Leslie since we're child. We're not close coz we're not same with interest and we're a total opposite. Her mom is my Aunt. Since a child I always heard them bad mouthing my mom and me, well actually my family. I don't know what's with them.
When I was in high school, I was being told that I am a timer. To whom I heard that word? From my Aunt. She told me and our neighbor that I have boyfriends while studying without knowing that her daughters were the one who have boyfriends and one of them was a timer. But the timer one is my close friend. Coz even she's a timer, I can say that she's a kind one, is just that she's not into commitment. Unlike Leslie who's like a decent girl but sharp tongue. She will talk not minding if she'll hurt someone or not. She hates me a lot actually. They said I will not able to graduate in high school and will married early. I told myself, let's see.
When I was in fourth year high school, I learned that Leslie was already married and will have a child. How did I know? She went to Manila after she graduates in high school, I still remember that she was studying college but only for first semester only and she stopped. We just wondered who walked in front of us, she's thin that time and have a bulging tummy. I almost didn't recognized hear. When she smiled at me and said "Hi dai!" . And there I recognized her sly smile. I asked myself, what happened? Is she married, I answered hello to her. I am just cautious coz she's been so mean to me.
Our other Aunt asked her if where's her husband, but then she said that the guy was at work and that she's only the one who went home. Later, after a month, she gave birth and I've heard from our relatives that the guy who's the father of her daughter was a married man and that they can't be together because the legal wife was looking for them. What's inside my mind that time is that 'karma' is b***h , really! All her mother told me and those things Leslie did to me bounced back to them. I was a little bit sad for her coz I see that she's changing into good one but I was wrong. She's still the old Leslie.
When I graduated in college, she's trying to be close with me like her sister. Her sister is my closest cousin and my best friend. Though, I've heard lots of hurtful words from their mom, I can't leave Leila coz she's so kind to me and the down to earth one unlike her sister. I knew why Leslie wants to be close to me even their mom. But, I didn't mind them. I see how Leslie face other people hiding the fact that her partner is a married one. She embraces it whole heatedly but I always notice that she's hurting her first born. Her anger easily burst when she sees her child. I think all her frustration and anger was pointed to her daughter. That's why here daughter don't like to be with her. Her daughter now was with her parents. They're the one who raise the child.
Now, Leila talked to me that the partner of her Ate Leslie have someone else (kabit). And Leslie was so furious, they already have two children already. So, Leslie done another mistake, she did a revenge and have a relationship with her ex Jino. I don't actually know the whole story but Ate Leila is asking for my help to advice Ate Leslie and that hit me hard and laugh. I told Ate Leila, I can't coz I know that Ate Leslie will not listen to me. But then she insisted so I did. I told Ate Leslie to stopped her revenge with her partner coz cheating will not be a solution to their problem. That they should talk. I never thought that she'll cry after what I said. She said that she can't bear the fact and never expected that her partner was having an affair, the fact that they already have two children. Behind my mind was "Seriously? You didn't expect your partner to do that to you, which he already did with his legal wife with you?" , but I contain myself not to tell that to her. I told her to stop meeting Jino cause the children will be the one to be hurt she continue meeting him. She's mad with the woman his partner have a relationship, she nagged her like she's the legal wife but she's not. We just her be. But I and Ate Laila chatted the girl and the girl told us that Leslie's partner told her that he's single and no children. Haha lol, that kind of guys will surely be toasted.
Leslie went home to our hometown but after three days she went back to her partner coz she's pregnant for her third. I don't know if they're okay now coz I was busy this days and never replied with her messages. You know, she's trying to be close with me. Now, they already have three children but the trust was gone already. I still remember that her daughter asked me why she can't go to her father's side, grandparents, and I can't answer her same with Ate Leila. I felt pity for the children. They were hidden and felt lost.
If a relationship starts from cheating, it will end up into chaos. Never expect to have peace in mind if you enter such relationship coz every time, you will always think of negative things. The what ifs and so. The insecurities will always be there. The fear that your partner will do same to you of what he did before.
The guy cheated to his legal wife, that is why Leslie is not assured to where she stands. I know she's been struggling now. Especially that the guy is a womanizer. How will she keep the relationship which starts from a mistake?
That's one of the things before why I am afraid to have a relationship. And my standards was high. Haha, I still remember the time when someone will court me, I feel all the guys were committed already that is why I close my doors. I am afraid to be found by guys like Leslie's partner.
I am just glad that I've found someone who's single and loyal haha sana di magbago chooorr!. Anyway, we should be cautious when it comes to relationship and for those guys who wants us to be with. Never put yourself in the chaos and you might be drowned and won't able to get up.
