Scanning these files pissed me off, it ruined my day, and we rescued every one of them actually. I am just disgusted with the people behind these inhumane things. Marcus said this will be our break; I am Travis by the way. I am a fresh graduate from a premiere Police University here in the Philippines, while this “Mr. Know It All” partner of mine, graduated in Yale University. We were based here in Manila Police District. It’s our 3rd in in service in this police district, we used to to some OJT here when i was still in college, and yes, my partner has chosen to do his internship here too, THE HORROR right?

What the hell is happening with our country, I don’t actually know, but the only thing we know is that these kids’ cases were all connected. ALMOST SAME KIND OF DEATH, SAME DAY THESE THINGS WERE SENT TO US, isn’t it obvious? That those creeps behind these, IS ONLY ONE SYNDICATE? I do not know! We are still on the first part of our investigation.

DAY ONE: THE ENIGMA OF SILENCE

One night, while we are on duty, we received six simultaneous calls from different parts of Manila, kids of almost the same age bracket found without internal organs, BUT THE WEIRD THING WAS, TWO OF THEM WAS NOT THAT BAD, except for the one that wasn’t able to survive while we were on the verge of travel to a hospital.

…LEAD

We don’t even have a single detail about his matter. Until one day 13 hours after hoping of a survivor, Doctor Maniego called that one survived. God that was fast! We rushed to PGH to see if he’s okay, we asked the doctor what to do, and what is he’s condition

“Tortured, nails were all gone, he has these 34 stabs and lacerations, and I can say this is a MIRACLE, only few people can survive with that kind of state. I can say whoever’s behind this, HE’S AN ANIMAL.”

I stopped and corrected him, I said “THEY NOT HE.” I am pretty sure with that. And now, we have a lead.

…RING! RING!

 

It was my phone. My mom’s on the other line, crying.

After that moment, I dropped my phone accidentally on the floor,

 

My eyes are wet, my nose is red.

 

My brother was found dead, WITHOUT HIS HEART.

GLX- 34546: Ephraim. ( RECLUSION PERPETUA)

“I am not familiar with that word until Lavinia came.”

 

My heart was a product of a genetic modification. I am a cyborg with four emotions, anger, sadness, happiness, and an unknown one, but there is one thing that I can prove to you, I DO NOT TRUST ANYONE. I am GLX-34546, but you can call me Ephraim. I was created to replace Von, Sir Ybrahim’s child; He died because of a collision on Planet 3ZX, it was unexpected, devastating. I was created in a laboratory in GLOBILUS CITY (modern day Valenzuela), in Philippines, one of the top countries in Earth.

 

I do not know who I am. I am a cyborg, A ROBOT. They told me that normal beings used to have their likes and dislikes, But I am a metal formed as a human, I am basically numb, I neither like nor dislike anything, EVERYTHING. But my creator said that THE ONLY PERMANENT THING IN THIS MODERN WORLD IS CHANGE. I do not know what he meant when he told me that, my nuts and bolts are loosening up. I am worried.

 

Sir Ybrahim told me that as his creation, and a replica of Von, I am required to like everything that Von liked before, it includes the one I have read, POMATO, a combination of two extinct living organisms that has existed a millennium ago, it was the TOMATO and POTATO, his favorite game, the underwater newspaper dance, his favorite television show during the mid-SAURA time (Sir Ybrahim told me that before it was called NOONTIME until a new kind of SUN appeared and they named it SAURON.) “Eat Bulaga”, that has just celebrated its 1594th year (today is Numberty 43, 3605), Numberty is the 13th month and as of today we have 51 days per month. The things I mentioned were just few of his likes. And as a counterpart he also told me to dislike some things. One thing that I must dislike is the oldest existing vegetable, the AMPALAYA; I do not know why actually, they told me it was a kind of edible organism. I AM A ROBOT. I DO NOT EAT.

 

And then there was Lavinia, I do not know, every time she is near, I OVERHEAT. SHE IS NOT RECOGNIZED BY MY SYSTEM. She is so mysterious.

 

I AM SCARED.

WORRIED.

LAVINIA. Is she my friend?

OR MY DESTROYER?

RECLUSION PERPETUA.

October 12, 3600.

The butterflies of the military are searching for something, someone that will be an abomination, a persecution to whole of Philippines, a rough instrument to end the pandemonium. Every laboratory was searched, every scientist was interrogated

TORTURE

DEATH,

SUFFERINGS.

A war will happen; Luzon versus the Visayas, Philippines was never like this before. Major Allegre, The head of Luzon State is planning to take over a large part of the whole Philippines. Chaos is all over, even the modern day congress is breaking down, and they are taking sides. Philippines was separated into three different states, Luzon State, the Visayan Peninsula, and the Mindanaoan State.

In an underground laboratory, I was finished, modified, finalized, I am Ephraim, I was created to replace Von, he died because of an aircraft crash in Planet 3ZX, a spaceship collided with his aircraft. My creator is his father, Sir Ybrahim Simoun Paule, A retired scientist of DOST.

“My main purpose is to replace Von, is that really it?”

The war was caused by selfishness of few people who wants to dominate the whole country, 156 years ago, a memorandum was signed in cooperation with the “WORLD PEACE ORGANIZATION” an association of countries all over the globe that aims to create more states due of lacking funds, and because of global recession, they believe that creating more states can help all to produce goods independently that they will contribute positively to the world crisis. But 15 years ago, a conflict between the two states of Philippines happened because they started to argue about the stability of the Philippines not as three states, and today the governing bodies of two states, Luzon State and the Visayan Peninsula.

UNKOWN FEELING: IDENTIFIED

Lavinia, Sir’s assistant, my only friend.

Sir Ybrahim told me that Lavinia is a loving girl, I find her very attractive actually. As of today I am with her with a span of 4440 hours, six months almost. Lavinia is so caring; she always makes me happy, to the point where I overheat because my program only recognizes happiness, instead of recognizing the other emotions. I feel safe when I am with her. She is a SAURON ON HER OWN. SHE LIGHTS UP MY GLOOMY LIFE

Until one day, I figured out the UNKNOWN EMOTION SIR Ybrahim has programmed…

IT WAS LOVE.

FAREWELL.

And then it happened.

One rainy night, 15 armed men gate-crashed inside the mansion. Before they can even reach the entrance Sir Ybrahim whispered,

“They’re looking for you, run, hide, and make sure they will not find you, you are the key, power, the instrument of SILENCE to this PANDEMONIUM. Hide with Lavinia; I know she makes you laugh. But remember, DO NOT TRUST ANYONE.

Together with Lavinia, we rushed until we reach our safe dwelling. While we are running, I heard it, a loud SCREEH, my robotic heart leaped, and I have felt it, SIR YBRAHIM’S LAST BREATH AND IT WAS THE FIRST TIME. I FEEL SAD, but I am puzzled when he told me the phrase “DO NOT TRUST ANYONE.”

She is a spy.

One night, while being updated, Sir entered an unknown program inside me, and today with all the mixed emotions, the program operated all by itself. It was a video from my creator, he explained to me everything, he found out that Lavinia is a secret spy of AFP and she is the reason of my creator’s death. And her aim is to diffuse me.

TO END MY LIFE.

AND ANOTHER THING, HE ALSO TOLD ME THAT, I AM THE ABOMINATION, MY HEART IS A ULTRA NUCLEAR BOMB THAT WILL EXPLODE IF I WANT IT TO EXPLODE, AND THE KEY IS MY MIND.

MY LOVE

 

            MY DESTROYER.

Lavinia, she’s my only love but she’s bound to kill me, THAT SUCKS. After realizing the fact of irony, that she was the girl Sir Ybrahim has told me, TRAGEDY REALLY HAPPENS, she’s Philippines only chance, THE SAVIOR, and I AM THE ABOMINATION.

With the whole country almost washed due to bombs, and Destructive events happening almost every day, I have decided to end it all. BUT I WILL NEVER CONFESS TO LAVINIA THAT I AM THE CHAOTIC THING BEING SEARCHED. One hot sauratime, I went on top of the CLOCK TOWER OF MANILA CITY HALL, the oldest existing one, without knowing that Lavinia followed me to tell me news…

RUNNING

On top, I saw her smiling, I AM PUZZLED. And then

 

I BID GOODBYE.

 

I JUMPED.

 

I know she was shocked, but I cannot do anything, it was my last resort to change what is destined.

FOR THE FIRST TIME, I FEEL THE RUSH OF AIR, SMELL OF TRUE SENSE OF LIFE, FOR THE FIRST TIME I APPRECIATED THE LIGHT OF SAURON.

FOR THE FIRST TIME, I CRIED.

I LOVE HER, AND SHE IS NOT AWARE ABOUT IT.

“THE NEWS”

I am Lavinia, a secret agent. It’s been a month since THE WAR HAS ENDED, since I lost SOMEONE. It was tragic; I was there when he committed suicide without knowing ONE THING:

ALL THE THINGS THAT HE KNOW

 

            ALL OF THEM ARE LIES.

there is no such thing as an ABOMINATION.

 

AND NOW. I AM LOST.

“Scrapbook: Breathing Without My Air.”

STAGE: ACCEPTANCE?

It has been a year ago, a year since we have parted ways, like east and west coast, like north and the south pole, from strangers, friends, best friends, lovers, strangers, and supposedly lovers again. I met her in a motocross event; Motocross is my passion, together with my best bud Raj, but after meeting her? Everything changed, the next thing I know is, LOVING HER IS NOW MY PASSION. Even I could not imagine the complexity of our relationship. Treating one another like we are a true married couple, and on some parts, quarreling like we are two countries at war. BUT NOW? Here I am, tracing my steps back again, with the feeling of being a baby learning to walk and talk for the first time. “There is always a way out for those clever enough to find it.” That line is from a book series that is well-known all over the world, from “PERCY JACKSON: The Titan’s Curse.” There is always a way out, but the question is,

HOW WILL I ABLE TO FIND MY WAY OUT?

If “MOVING ON” is a subject taught at school, I think I will be the MASTER OF FAILURE in that subject. How can I even find my way out?! She is the key to my door. How can I call myself clever? She’s my mind, my heart, my soul. That line up there? (^) it struck me a lot of times, AND IT’S STILL COUNTING. I could not find the point of that line actually.

… Let’s put it this way.

What if you’re in my place? If she’s your life, YOUR EVERYTHING. What will you do if she leaves you? BUT IN THE MOST TRAGIC WAY.

STAGE: PREMONITIONS

“Run!!!!! Run!!!!”

I heard myself shouting, this is not ordinary I can say, my voice, I am actually stuttering, fear, tired, lack of hope… then I glance on my left side, Shey is there with me running, sweat and tears covered her eyes. We are running along a road that we don’t know, as I look back, I was shocked to see a car, fast approaching, zooming… COMING TO US. On the driver seat, I saw a familiar face…..

As I glance.

As I look.

I am shocked with what I saw.

Then light has blinded me…

BANG!

I found myself lying in my bed. Sweaty, my arms, my chest, even my eyes, it’s crying, I AM CRYING. GOOSEBUMPS ALL OVER MY BODY, I’m dreaming.

I AM SCARED.

I want to call her

BUT it has been a week.

Since we cut all sources of the communication.

It has been week since we broke up.

STAGE: CONFRONTATIONS. FLASHBACKS.

 

“I hate you.”

“I am sorry.”

“It’s over.”

She slammed the door, and then leaves. It was the last thing that I heard from her, after that, nothing. It was my fault actually, I am starting to fall out of love, but she didn’t stop loving me, every day of every week of every month of every year. It hurts to see her wait for me up to midnight so we can study the lessons for tomorrow, and me? I am outside with my friends enjoying motorcycle rides. Those moments where she looks like a dumb-ass, waiting for me to go home? IT SUCKED! I SUCK! And now she’s gone, I don’t really know how to start, AGAIN. It was a year ago since it ended; it is not a wild confrontation, BUT VERY HEART SHATTERING. Maybe one of the most heart breaking events I have encountered. IT WAS DEVASTATING TO SEE THE ONE YOU LOVE BREAK DOWN BECAUSE OF YOU.

“IT’S OVER.”

TWO WORDS, BUT THE MOST DEVASTATING ONE 😦

STAGE: T___T

 

Thursday night, I am eating supper with my family it has been a week since we have broken up. The day when I want to call her, that day that I have experienced maybe the most frightening dream. While eating, THE PHONE RINGS. I stood up almost rushing, expecting that the voice on the other line was hers. My mom insisted that she will answer it, she told me to finish my meal, and I followed what she said.

The next thing I heard…..

Mom,

Crying…

We rushed to the hospital, my eyes are so red. I am holding the scrapbook, the one that I made, the whole year, it was for our anniversary, but because of the break up, and I want to give it to her as a peace-offering,

TO SAY SORRY. BECAUSE I WANT HER BACK.

BADLY.

We asked the nurse where is Shey, and we rushed to the EMERGENCY ROOM. We run, I run like there is no tomorrow, then Tita Aleli stopped me from entering the room, she hold my hand tight with watery eyes and said,

“She’s with God now……. She will be our angel, YOUR ANGEL FROM NOW ON.”

I followed the ones who brought her to the morgue; I’m with Keith, her younger brother. I am there, just looking at her, with no tears, I’m drained, physically and emotionally. I am looking at my life; she looks like a little girl sleeping, like she has no problem, like she’s with our archangels. Then Keith poked me, he gave me this letter, from Shey…

“Dear Vincent,

 

I love you.

 

I want to be with you forever.

 

I want to be your angel.

 

I want to guide you.

 

I am sorry.

 

Your “FUTURE” guardian,

Shey :)”

 

            Shey is 16 years old, I am puzzled, I do not even know what is the cause of death. After a while I went to Tita Aleli,

“Vincent, Shey has brain cancer. She did not want you to know, She knows you are a very persistent guy, and if you know, you will not stop looking for many solutions, it was stage 3 then it had gotten worse, last May, the doctor told us that it was now stage 4 AND THE DOCTOR TOLD US THAT IT WILL ONLY TAKE 4 MONTHS UNTIL SHE BREAKS DOWN, but because of your love? It was extended. You’re the Miracle Vincent, you are Shey’s angel.”

I am speechless,

My reply?

Tears

Why Shey?

…….

 

It was a year ago, when I met Shey, the day that she became my archangel? That day when she left me?

 

IT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE OUR ANNIVERSARY.
