“Why did we stop?” I woke up from my nap when I noticed that he parked the car. We were on our way back to Manila and he knew that I’d like us to beat the rush hour and arrive home before my curfew.
“To enjoy the view.” He smiled and looked at me before he opened the door, and it was only then that I noticed the beautiful sunset from my window. I grabbed my shawl, stepped out of the car and felt the gentle breeze on my cheek. I can see he was enthralled, capturing the scene with his lens.
“Take your time.” I whispered this to myself as I watched him. I breathed in, looked at the sky, enjoyed the moment and let go of thoughts about how things would unfold.
