Chapter 7 - The Guitarist
"Like, take a chill pill, man. Maria's gonna come for sure. Stop worrying already!" Feliks amusedly watched his friend pace back and forth the room. "Seriously, dude, you look like you're expecting your first child."
Karun stopped in his tracks and sighed. "I suppose you're right. Yao did say she had a habit of coming late most of the time. "Filipino time", as they say."
"Hmm... Like, don't Jaya and Malik come pretty late too? So... Is it like some sort of Malaysian and Indonesian thing as well?"
Karun ran a hand through his hair and looked at the blond thoughtfully. "Probably. They have "Indonesian time" and "Malaysian time" in their places too."
"LOL." The Pole couldn't help but laugh heartily. Just as he was about to open his mouth to say something else, a familiar "ding" was heard by the duo.
"Speak of the devil, that's probably Maria getting off from the elevator," said Feliks.
Filipino Identity: Part I After seeing a fellow Filipino deviant’s journal about what he saw in TV Tropes describing Filipinos' 'National Stereotypes,’ I think its time to share what I’ve learned regarding ‘Filipino Identity and Culture’ during an orientation I took for a cultural exchange trip I took a while back. During the orientation, a local anthropologist from one of the universities shared his study and knowledge about what being a Filipino is and what is their identity now.Filipino Identity: Part I1 year ago in Editorial More Like This
But, of course, one should know at least a general meaning of ‘identity’ to begin with. According to the professor we had there, “identity is a basis of selfhood and in the past, traditions have controlled the kind of person individuals should become.” Traditions are usually connected with our past; therefore he added that, since it is now modern times:
"Modernity makes identities more complex

The grainy sensation of her dry tongue rubbing against the roof of her mouth nudged her back toward consciousness. Her mouth felt like it had been filled with warm sand, course and arid. Swallowing, trying to call forth any kind of relief to her parched throat, Kagome wrinkled her face before cracking her heavy eyelids open to reveal a blurry sliver of what looked like her own bedroom. Her eyes slid closed again, and she willed herself to regain control of her senses and go investigate. But as she opened her mouth to take a bracing breath of air… nothing. Kagome’s eyes shot open again as she frantically fought against the sticky duct tape plastered over her mouth, only to find that her hands were also immobile and unresponsive. She began to panic. Even with the use of her nose, she still felt like she was suffocating in her bounds and flailed desperately to free herself. Even just one breath of air would be enough. Just o

That some of the people around you could be angels or demons? That there are people with special access to the other sides, nirvana, heaven, death. That there are other people walk around without even knowing that they have powers, or any learning about how to use them.
If you are like me, and believe in different things that reflects to this. You got to listen to my story.
My name is Thomas. And I’m a Guidance Angel.
It all started when I was 7-8 years old. I started to hear a voice; I associated it with the Greek god Zeus. I could hear a voice that always answered when I had a question.
All I remember was that he told me, there was people with this gift, not too many, but some spread all over the world. All with different talents and different reasons and tasks that they were destined to attend here on earth.

Putting up this front
As if you're happy at the world.
But I know you're out to get me.
You say you didn't steal,
Or take, or manipulate.
But I can see right through you
Even if everyone else can't.
What have I done to you?
I just wanted to be alone,
Away from you and your games.
But still you hound me endlessly.
You stalk me.
I know you're right behind
As I try to get back what's rightfully mine.
It's not yours.
Still you war with me
And even though I don't get help
I still battle on
Until I can't move forward anymore.
You may win one time,
But I'll avenge myself
And do what's right and just.
Still you'll block my path.
You stop me cold
And step in front of my way.
Before I can rebel any further
You whisper in my ear:
"Happy New Year.
Please stop fighting.
You know you can't win
So just stop. Just stop."
Tears roll down my face.
It's not grief,
Nor sadness, nor joy.
It's anger. How could you?

"Stop! Just stop the music!"
All of a sudden, instruments ceased playing and the singer's voice came to an abrupt stop. Music that had been previously been blaring throughout the practice room immediately came to a halt and was quickly replaced by a lingering silence.
Maria, or Ria as she had become known to the members of the band, could only stare at the reason why they all had suddenly stopped doing what they were supposed to be doing and, apparently, she wasn't the only one. All eyes were fixed at the young man behind the drums, they were all waiting expectantly at what the Indonesian had to say . Said Indonesian was rubbing his temples and muttering incoherently in an annoyed manner. Scowling, Jaya turned to look up at his fellow bandmates.
"Malik," the drummer practically growled. "Did you forget the lyrics again? You were slurring in that second verse!"
To Ria's surprise, the Malaysian didn't argue back. The singer merely bit his lip

You supposed the only good thing about it right now, was that you were sitting next to Germany. He was in deep conversation with his brother, Prussia. You didn't mind though, sitting next to him was enough to make your heart beat faster.
As you arrived at the museum you would be touring, you got an idea. Sneaking behind Germany, you clapped a hand over his mouth and pulled him back behind the bus again. "___? Vhat are you-"Sssst." You told him. You pulled him down into a crouch behind the bus and waited until you could hear the voices or see the feet of your classmates anymore.
Straightening up, you grinned down at him. His blue eyes widened, realizing what you'd done. "Hey!" He stood to his full height, glaring down at yo

“So… Let me see if I understand. You are telling us that our new substitute guitarist is actually a girl and that our manager lied to us about it?” asked Ridwan.
The members of the band Instant Noodles were in the middle of dessert after dinner. Karun, their manager, had bought them fresh fruits like mangoes and some melon to share as a reward for all their hard work.
“Yeah. That’s pretty much everything, ana~” Waen just smiled as he sipped his tea.

Normal people might been riled up or panicking over the news that their substitute guitarist was actually or a girl or the fact that Manager Karun hid the her true identity, but not them. They were all calmly sitting around a table, eating their fruit as if they were just talking about sports or the weather.

There are a lot of things that could be said about love, like “If you truly love someone, set them free” or a common one named “Friend-Zoned”.
For me, it is more like the first one, when I’m not looking it usually happens something. I’ve often found myself dazing around falling in love with the wrong people, or falling in love with what I don’t understand. “Boy you should know what you’re falling for” A quote so strong that I must give it credit.

The brass door knocker glinted in the evening sun as Kagome rapped it against the large, mahogany door of the Taisho residence. There the two stood, just before 6 p.m., as Rin’s squeals of joy pierced the thick, aged wood. From the corner of her eye, Kagome could see her son fidget slightly, repeatedly interlocking his small fingers and rubbing his thumbs together in an unconscious attempt at self-comfort. She smirked as she eyed him. ‘NOW he wants to act all nervous? Well, serves him right... Adorable little devil,’ she thought to herself, placing a hand in front of her mouth to stifle a giggle. The humor would be short-lived, however, as both were soon alerted to the clicking of the lock from inside.

It was never going to be easy teaching teenagers that were the ages of fifteen and upwards, but then again Zack had always enjoyed a bit of a challenge, in fact he found it the best form of entertainment for a teacher to have.
In his classes, Zack had noticed that there was always the same type of child in each class that he taught, though he was firmly against stereotyping, he found himself doing it on a regular basis.
For example, whenever he was stepping in for the English teacher, who was constantly ill, he had divided the class up into their social groups so that he found it easier to deal with them if they annoyed him.
He knew that as soon as the loud and obnoxious kids would sit near the back in a corner, this was obviously to try and hide the fact that they were on their mobile phones, but moving to the back actually did the opposite, it made you look even more suspicious.
Zack had noticed that whenever the girls entered the classroom, they would just sit together

So worried you are, I'll be back for you
Your flame is still bright, so is the darkness surrounding you.
It won't struggle against the time. The clock stops spinning
So lonely goes the solemn tear

Can I wait for you further as my flame burns out?

A single leaf decides to make its escape, falling and twirling like a performing ballerina before finished final by landing without a sound on the clear surface of the lake, as reflecting as always.
