seafarer

Sa isang sing-along-bar malapit sa isang state university sa Southern Mindanao tumambay noon ang isang hunk na kaibigan ng kapatid ng may-ari. Sa bar na yun minsan akong boluntaryong tumutulong upang maipagpatuloy ang aking pag-aaral.

Umiinom si hunk ng san mig beer pero di ko sya narinig na kumanta. Nakikinig lang mag-isa habang kinakausap paminsan-minsa ng may-ari ng bar, normal na ginagawa nya sa lahat ng parokyano nya ng bar na karamihan ay mga negosyante, propesyonal at manaka-nakang mayayamang magsasaka, estudyante at kung minsan mga opisyales ng mga sundalong naka detail sa kalapit ng kampo.

Mahigit 26 na taon na ang nakaraan sa mga pangyayaring ito habang nagkakaha at nag ooperate ako ng minus-one. Mahilig kasing kumanta ang may-ari ng bar at marami ang nag re request na kumanta sya dahil maganda rin naman ang boses nya.

Lampas hating-gabi na kung magsara ang bar at dahil kaibigan na rin ng may-ari ang hunk ay niyaya nya itong doon na lang matulog sa guest-room, kung saan doon din ako natutulog.

In a sleepless early morning, my mind was flying last Thursday to my university with this cute guy resembling Levi Johnson who slept with me in the guest room some 26 years ago.

Thanks to the unknown, I met the same hunk who is now based in Norway through Facebook.

The funniest thing is that we never talked about what happened between us until we chatted and recalled last Thursday how wonderful that night was.

Laughingly, he teased that I don’t even know to performa satisfying bj whle asking if he was my first. I never said I was virgin for I was already long broken. Not totally wrecked, though.

My Levi quipped that he is now a “goodboy” and boasts of having two sons whom he claims of being more handsome than him.

After exchanging how our life ahs been after that exciting night I admit I never though he would succed in life.

“Bugoy bugoy lang gud sa una,” he said. “But having lived like a thug before, it has been my teen life experience that made me what I am today,” he revealeded.

“It has been those drunk and wasted days and night that me me decide to track another life. I went away. Studied and become a seaman. I have been to numerous countries and continents I never imagined like Libya, Africa, Americas and now, I toured all over Europe.

“I work 12 hours with 4 hours automatic overtime payment for 58 straight days and have 28 days vacation," he told me before he start his vacation today.

Surprised. My old flame has rekindled light.

Jokingly, he said he could feel that am starting to fall in love with him especially that he now owns two houses in Metro Manila and two residential lots in nearby Rizal and drives a new SUV car.

As I recalled him pulling up his shirt and down his jeans revealing his youthful body, and glnced on his fresh baby face in the softly lit room as he slid with his skimpy brief on bed lying beside me, he asked me what would I want should we meet again.

“Payakap,” I asked my oil rig seaman in Norway.

"Eextend mo kasi bakasyon mo para mag pang abot tayo sa bakasyon ko uli sa July."
