Yey, it’s my after meal cubicle siesta. Our manager is two seats from my left, with a supervisor behind me. Who cares? I closed my eyes and felt my world’s spinning hard. It’s just a physical exam. D*mn. After three years of self predictions, I finally decided to avail our health benefits. I’m too dizzy to think of anything. I closed my eyes surrendering to the pain I’m feeling. Now I imagined my own will and testament.
I’ll give my celphone and silver jewelries to my younger sister who mock for it zillion times now; my perfume to mom since she always wants a baby scent; my “B” bag to an ever loyal friend, Juliet. Ok, that’s the only precious possession I had.
“Nakakatakot, ang lakas!”
a girl from the other department screamed.
I opened my eyes and a colleague hold my left arm, terrified. The building’s swaying for about a minute or two.
It was a magnitude 6.1 earthquake. Thank God that’s all that happened.
