Mitch has been under a lot of stress lately, so much so, that he has been...seeing things. It happened rarely at first, and then it happened more and more. It's gotten to the point that he and his family have decided to move to his old family house in the country at the suggestion of his therapist. Hopefully now with the move... Thinks will get better. He will get the much needed relaxation, and he can improve his marriage, and relationship with his step-kids.
Kadang gue lupa alasan selama ini gue selalu mengangkat tangan dan menekannya di dada, hanya untuk menahan sakit. Alasan gue selalu duduk di kafe sendirian sambil menatap hape, hanya untuk menunggu panggilan. Alasan gue berdiri di tengah-tengah pesta dengan mata yang menatap ke segala arah, hanya untuk melihat apa dia datang. Alasan gue selalu bisa menolak perempuan-perempuan yang hatinya terebut tanpa sadar, hanya untuk kecewa setelahnya. Kadang gue lupa, kalo seluruh masalah, kekecewaan tanpa akhir, dan sesak di dada gue selama bertahun-tahun hanya berpusat di satu nama. Satu orang yang mampu mencabik-cabik gue tanpa seujung kuku menyentuh kulit gue. Satu perempuan yang menari-nari di antara jemari gue tanpa pernah berhasil gue genggam. -Rendra pic cover : @choy_hg
I rushed back in and pressed my ear up against the back wall. There it was. The sound I heard. The soothing music was right beyond this wall. My eyes darted around the room until they settled on a cello case that was on its side. It was still pinned up against the wall by the shelf and some other cases. It didn't occur to me until then that it was possible the door was behind something. I moved the case out of the way, and there it was. A small door with an old style keyhole in it. I got on my knees as I lifted the key from around my neck. With a shaking hand, I pushed it in and turned. There was a loud click, and I was in. I expected to find Mr. Morgan on the other side with a smug look on his face. Or maybe even a camera crew that was a part of some lame Youtube prank channel. It wasn't any of that though. Just a piano and the one playing it. A piano and a girl.
Ang Librong ito ay tumatahak sa pang araw-araw na eksena. Ang iba ay hindi pa nakikita ng iyong mata at hindi pa naririnig ng iyong tainga. Sa mababaw na tubig ng mga salita nagtatago ang malalalim na kwento at istorya. Nakakatawa, nakakalungkot, nakakagalit, nakakadiri, nakakalito at nakapangingilabot ang mga kwentong bumubuo sa bawat alon ng mga kwentong ito. Gaya ng galit na dagat na malalakas ang alon na maaari kang dalhin sa pampang o sa ilalim gayon din ang gagawin ng mga dagli na ito.

Author's Note :) ———————- This piece could not have been finished without my sister a.k.a. Editor, and my inspiration to be a better writer. All the research I did for this piece has made me a better writer and I learned alot from the inspirational rapper/actor/poet Tupac Amaru Shackur. I also learned a lot about myself that I thought I couldn't do. There were some parts of the story I had to come up with on my own, since I couldn't find some information on Tupac's life at 17. I did find roughly enough information, to piece things together, and feel as accurate as possible. For example, I couldn't find exactly who exactly Tupac was staying with in California, so I made up a fictional family Tupac and his family stayed with. All I found is that they were family friends. As well as some of the characters were made up, like Rosé, Willian, Daisy, J Dog, and Mrs. Johnson. Tupac's mother and sister, along with Lelia Steinberg were all actual and important people in Tupac's life. Also all of the places mentioned in the story are also real, and were important places to know during Tupac's life at 17. These are some things that were fictional, as well as some things that were in fact non-fictional in my story. ———————————————————————— Thank you, for giving my short story a read it really means a lot! :)
