I am not that close to my relatives sa father side ko. Kaya ako, medyo ilag and iwas sa kanila. Though may mga pinsan naman ako and tito's and tita's na close ko, kaso pili lang. I never went outside with them, go ahead and have some fun thingy, I guess that happened just once in my life, and I bet it'll never happen again.
Mama, Papa and I were at home resting. My two siblings went to the church to hear the mass. My dad, who heard my sister's phone beep, began reading the text message. Echosera kasi si Papa kaya binasa na nya. I saw him froze on where he is standing. Lumapit sya sakin habang nagaayos ako ng gamit, sabi nya, "Shing, basahin mo nga, sino daw yung namatay?" Then I began reading the text message, sent by Mikee's friend. When I saw Kuya Ali's name on it,. and his surname, my mind went blank. Akala ko nga it was him who were involved in the car accident, but it' not. It's his parents, Tito Robert and Tita Arcelli Labastida.
Papa kept on bad mouthing the text message I just read, sabi ko wait nga, it's not yet confirmed pa naman. Or if you want, we can call your cousins in Isabela. She talked to Tita Helen, and she confirmed na patay na nga yung dalawa. Dead on the spot. ;(
I was like, no. That can't happen, unless na sobrang grabe yung impact sa kotse. Renz also told me na talagang yupi yung kotse. Kasi tatlong puno yung binangga ng car. Naawa ako sa nangyari sa kanila, why do they have to met their fate in that tragic way? Grabe lang, alam kong di ko sila close, but after hearing what had happened to them, goosebumps were like all staying in my body for half an hour, nakakakilabot. Ewan ko. :(((((
PAPA GOD, LET THE ETERNAL LIGHT SHINE UPON TITO ROBERT AND TITA ARCELLI LABASTIDA, MAY THEY REST IN PEACE. AMEN. :*
