Nagising ang dalaga sa tilaok ng tandang. Dahan dahan siyang bumangon ng matuklasan ang kakaibang sakit ng kaniyang ulo. Nangitim ang ilang bahagi ng kaniyang kayumangging balat, habang ang ilan ay may mga tapal ng dahon. Naubo ng sunod sunod ang dalaga, at huminga ng isang malaking lagok ng hangin ng matuklasang sariwa ang hangin sa kaniyang paligid. Hinagap pa niya mula sa kaniyang ala-ala ang naganap sa nakaraan. Ang salu-salo sa ilalim ng mansiyon. Ang rehas ng bakal. Ang naamoy niyang usok. Si Camilo de Guzman na walang saplot pang-ibaba. Ang nasusunog na mansiyon. Si Ophelia. Napatayo mula sa kaniyang hinihigaan si Sining ng maalala ang kaniyang amo. Sabay naman nito ang pagbukas ng pinto sa silid. Nandoon si Lucas, may dalang palangganang may tubig at basahan.

Sobre Rojo (Episode 16): Ang mga Nagbagong Plano

Standard

This is an adaptation of Fingersmith by Sarah Waters.

In my original plan, this was supposed to be Chapters 16 and 17, but I thought those two chapters were too short, so I decided to compress them into this one.

Remember, the episodes are compiled in the Shows tab.

Please, please, please feel free to leave your comments, enjoy reading!

Next chapter would most likely come up on Friday, I’m trying to finish this before the semester starts.

Pumanhik si Ophelia sa kwarto ng tiyahin ni Camilo kung saan sila nanatili ni Sining bago ang kasal. Hindi na niya nais pang isipin kung ano man ang ginagawa nila kay Sining sa baba. Nangako si Camilo sa kaniya na hindi niya papaslangin si Sining, at iyon ay nagdulot ng kapayapaan sa kaniyang puso, ngunit biglang napakapit ang dalaga sa kaniyang dibdib. Napatingin si Ophelia sa baba. Naisip niya kung bakit ganoon na lamang kadali na ipangako ni Camilo na hindi niya papatayin si Sining. Napakadali lamang ng kamatayan, marami pang binabalak ang binata sa kaniyang lingkod.

Ngunit wala nang saysay ang bumaba pa si Ophelia at pigilan kung ano man ang balak ni Camilo. Siya ang nagdala sa lingkod sa kaniyang paghihirap, siya ay namili, at pinili niya ang kaniyang sarili. Naglakad siya patungo sa kama at kinuha ang blusa ni Sining na nandoon pa rin, inilapit sa kaniyang mukha at nilanghap ang amoy nito. Pinupog ni Ophelia ng halik ang kuwelyo, ang manggas, ang mga butones at pinaliguan niya ng mga luha ang laylayan. Isang hikbi ng pananangis ang lumabas mula sa kaniyang bibig.

Slum Book Time!

Standard

Today, I remembered that this was a blog, not merely a repository of my literary attempts (or failures), and thought that as the blogger, I should share more of myself. The reason I do not do it is because I am not out to my family. I am in the closet, not because I am afraid that they would turn away from me. Honestly, I think they would not do that. I do not want them to know because I do not like to be scrutinized whenever I ask permission to go out. I know, even if it was a legitimate girls night out, or a sleepover with friends, my mother would still think I was just with my girlfriend the whole time. The thought ticks me.

Even so, I resolved to share more of myself, without tipping you off as to who I really am. Of the facts stated below, only my name is false, the rest are true like nobody’s business. It’s slum book time!

Sobre Rojo (Episode 15): Ang Tinig ni Ophelia

Standard

This is an adaptation of Fingersmith by Sarah Waters.

I know there had been a long wait for this one, and it’s not particularly long. That is because this chapter is supposed to bridge Book I of the story to the second book.

Let me tell you a bit about what has happened to me during the time that I was not posting. I graduated from college, went to the US, and then came back, and now I am a freshman in law school. So there.

Nakita ko ang pagkalito sa kaniyang mga mata nang ihayag ni Camilo ang kaniyang pangalan. Inasahan ko na iyon ang gagawin ng lalaking iyon, ang magarbong palabas, ang mahabang pagpapakilala. Noong una ay hindi ko maintindihan kung bakit kailangan pa niyang mag-abala para sa aming pagpapakasal, at sa salu-salo matapos, ngunit nang tumagal ang panahon at lalo kong nakilala si Camilo, naintindihan kong sadyang ganoon ang kaniyang pagkatao. Bunsong anak si Camilo, at hindi gaanong napagbalingan ng atensyon ng kaniyang ama noong ito ay nabubuhay pa, kaya naman sa bawat pagkakataon na maaari ay magyayabang ito. Isa lang ang kahambugan ni Camilo de Guzman sa mga dahilan kung bakit hinding hindi ko siya maaaring maging nobyo.

Hello!

Standard

Let me begin by saying that I am NOT Geraldine Touer. I am merely the girlfriend. (:

I opened G’s email earlier today [sorry, hon!] and found that there have been LOADS of comments requesting for the next chapter. She’s busy with some stuff right now but I PROMISE you guys that I will constantly remind her from now on. I’ve also been waiting for the next part of the story and I can’t wait to read it. Don’t worry, guys. It’s gonna be worth the wait, I’m sure.

PS: Is it just me or are chapters 10 and 12 missing? Hmm

Lots of love! (:

My Apologies

Standard

So there hasn’t been an update on Sobre Rojo for a month now, mainly because I’ve been busy with the past Engineering Week. I promise, the next episode will come this Sunday and it will be written in Ophelia’s POV. To make up for all my broken promises, I bring you some pictures of the ladies I took during the 2012 Maskipaps Fashion show, and Engineering Week event I attended. Enjoy🙂ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Sobre Rojo (Episode 14): Ang Magkasintahan sa Kabilang Bahagi ng Daigdig

Standard

This is an adaptation of Fingersmith by Sarah Waters.

This is the longest chapter thus far. Also, this episode contains sexy time, which might not be suitable for immature people regardless of age.

The next episode would be next Sunday, which would be from Ophelia’s point-of-view.

Please feel free to leave your comments, enjoy reading!

Alas kwatro na ng hapon at ngalay na ngalay na si Sining sa ibabaw ng kama ni Ophelia nang matapos ng kaniyang amo ang kaniyang larawan. Naging metikuloso si Ophelia sa pagguhit ng katawan ni Sining. Ang bawat pagkakamali ay hindi pinatatawad ng pambura, ang bawat linyang paliwak ay agad na itinatama. Walang pinunasan ang dalaga sa mga butil ng pawis na namuo sa kaniyang noo at tuluyang tumulo sa kaniyang pisngi.
