What About Love?

It was just a normal day for Atasha in the office. She’s scrolling through her facebook newsfeed when she came across a certain post from her favorite blogger featuring someone, who works in special forces. He’s a good-looking guy and she thought (maybe) they are of the same age. Right away Atasha clicked and viewed his profile. She learned some interesting things about him which made her admire him even more. It was an admiration at first sight. And by the way, Atasha found his name unique. His name is Robinhood.

Since then, she thinks of him often. She thought what if in the future, they’ll end up with each other (but at the back of her mind, she whispers: “in my dreams”). Weird because he doesn’t know her, he doesn’t know she exists.πŸ’”πŸ’”

In one event during one of Atasha’s friends wedding, she saw a familiar face. Omg, her heart started to beat faster. He was there. Robinhood was really there. Later she knew that the groom is a close friend of him. She can feel that she’s blushing but she have to compose herself and strongly hold her feelings inside. She’s looking at him from afar, he’s so handsome.πŸ˜πŸ’ž Nobody in the group know about him and no one had noticed that she’s in cloud9 that time. Nonetheless, Atasha is very happy that she gets to see him in person.

Months have passed, her feelings for him is quietly fading. It’s not impossible because you know that thing called “crush”.. She said to herself, “crush lang naman talaga and nothing more than that. Asa ka pa, hindi ka naman nia kilala.” #ouch #thathurts

One lazy Sunday afternoon, she thought of viewing again his facebook profile (to rekindle the feelings?? Lol). He recently changed his profile picture and Atasha got “kilig” because she also have the picture of the same spot where he took his and what’s more nakakakilig is they have the same caption to that picture. Only that Atasha uploaded that same photo on her Instagram account. So what do you call that thing? Atasha asking herself. Coincidence?? Fate?? (Ayan na naman, aasa ka naman bes!)πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜­πŸ’•β€οΈπŸ’”β€οΈ

Atasha took a deep breath and said to herself that whatever is in store for her and Robinhood in the future, she’s looking forward to it. God is the best planner. Atasha opened her journal and wrote:

Dear Robinhood, you’re lucky because you have an admirer who’s as amazing as me (chos!). Don’t worry self, this too shall pass. Great things are yet to come!
