OFWs Love and Life Stories

I'm secretly in love with my childhood OFW friend

Since when I was a child I know that I really like Jucay. He is my childhood friend, a classmate in elementary and high school, our neighbor.

I'm so happy every time I see him. Nobody knows that I like him. He is always top 1 in our class.

Jucay studied in Manila when we're in college, and I studied college in our province. He only goes home in our town only once a month. I'm always waiting for that time. I think I'm in love with him.

One morning when I watering the plants in front of our house, I heard a voice, "Hi Trisha, good morning!" I smiled at him and said, "good morning Jucay." I feel like I'm lucky on that day.

Suddenly my mom talk, "oh Jucay, hows your studies? Do you have a girlfriend or girlfriends? Study first before going to married life." Then they laugh together. "Hahaha, no Tita I don't have a girlfriend. I want to finish my studies before going to married life."

After so many years, we graduated from college. I work in a bank here in the Philippines. And Jucay work in abroad. Even though I have so many suitors, I did not entertain them. I know Jucay doesn't like me, but I wait until he is not getting married.

Jucay became a successful man. He builds his family a new house and also he builds his own house. He buys a car for his family and also for him. I think he has a girlfriend where he is working, in New Zealand. As time pass by, I'm always looking at his facebook account. I want to see him even in a picture. I'm a big stalker of Jucay.

He is very hardworking. After 5 years he going back to the Philippines. I'm so happy to know that he is going home. "Hahaha" as I laugh with myself. I'm crazy, he is not my boyfriend, why I'm always waiting for him?.

After work, I hurriedly want to go home. I want to see my neighbor, Jucay. When I'm in the house, I change my clothes and try to ask my mom. "Ma, did Jucay is really in the Philippines?" My mom smiled at me. "Yes, he is here awhile ago,  he gave chocolates, shirts, and bag. He asks me if where are you, I told him that you are at work."

My heart is so happy. I want to see him. I miss him. I know its not right, my mind tells me to stop but my heart can't stop loving him.

It's already at 7 o'clock in the evening. Maybe he was tired and wants rest for today. Tomorrow is Saturday, I will wake up early just to see him.

Someone knocks on the door. I opened it. "Good evening Trisha." Oh no! He is here. My face gets hot. "Ah ah, hello Jucay! Come inside and please sit down. What do you need? Who are you looking for?"

He looks at me and said, "You. I want to talk to you. I want to see you. Maybe you not believe what I will say to you. But this is the time that I want you to know that since when was a child you're the only girl that I like. I promise to myself that after I've finished my studies I will go abroad and save money for my family and for my future family."

"Every time I had to call my parents, I'm always asked about you. They said that you don't have a boyfriend. My family knew that ever since im really like you. I told them that when I become successful and you don't have a boyfriend or husband, I will tell you what I feel about you."

"I know this is the right time to tell you that I love you. Your one of the reasons why I work so hard. Can you please be my girlfriend?" I cried and cried. "I wait for you for a long time. I like you since we're young. I can't imagine that you feel the same way. Why you didn't tell me or call or chat me. I'm always waiting for you."

He hugs me tight. "Because I want you to be proud of me. I want to give you a good life. I told to myself that if God really wants you for me, even though we do not see each other, or whether I go abroad if we're really meant to be, God, gives way to us to become one."

After 3 months, we got married. I love him and he loves me. We're not young, we don't want to wait for another 5 or 10 years. And now we have 2 kids. We are not perfect but we are happy.

Being an ofw is not a reason to stop loving a person that is far from you. Put God in everything we do. God has always planned for us.
