“Kiss me, and you see how important I am.” Sylvia Plath

I had a best friend when I was in elementary school. The Principal considered him the most likely to succeed child in the school. He was a very calculative person, an above average intelligence; he likes modern gadgets and a fine boy’s scout. The name of my friend is Marcus. Last September 2, 2012. At the heat of the mid term exam. Marcus parents unexpectedly visit our home. The sad news, Marcus vanishes mysteriously while riding in a commuter bus back to school, in Laspinas city. Marcus parents lost their confidence to the local police authorities, after several weeks of unproductive backwash. The parents we’re desperate and bewilder. I’m no Sherlock Holmes and my resources are very limited. What I can share to them are my childhood memories with Marcus. We used to hang out in his bed room together with other friends. As a child i have the habit of exploring other peoples stuff.

Present day inside Marcus room we found a hand written journal. The last three months of Marcus important activities before the disappearance. He wrote a lot of happy moments with her newly found girlfriend name Jenny. He describes her as a silent type sweet loving person, a devoted catholic, honest and trustworthy. She is a first year college student in journalism course. For Jenny the truth is the most important. They meet each other at the National library.

Meeting Jenny’s parents. We were surprised their daughter is a another case of missing person. The parents of Jenny are no different from Marcus folks. Their too busy managing a business, absolutely no quality time spend with their siblings. They don’t have knowledge about Marcus. They describe Jenny as introvert, wallflower, antisocial. according to them Jenny wrote a lot of manuscript about children’s adventures, she spend most of her time writing in the bed room or in the national Library.The only person they knew associated with Jenny is Lucila. A childhood friend, see meet in the national library when she was 6 years old. For the past several years she talks about her often. But Jenny’s parents doubt the existence of Lucila. They think Lucila is a made up character inside the mind of Jenny. They haven’t seen her in flesh.

I ask the parents of Jenny if i could borrow some of Jenny’s written manuscript. Jenny’s parents look at each other. Nod without any hesitation gave me the permission to take everything I want, they said the manuscript is just collecting dust in the books shelves nobody is interested to read it. It’s just a waste of quality time. When they show me the manuscripts i’m overwhelm, it’s like one set of encyclopedia britannica. I end up choosing the first, the middle part and the last volume.

Just like what the parents of Jenny claim. The author of the manuscript is a little child. Most adult will get bored after reading few chapters. She had written them for her own pleasure after returning home from his class in the evening, and had made no attempt to get them published.The content mostly are fantasy imagination graphical stories.They talk about Lucila’s childhood adventures going to places 1000 times more ravishing than the top 10 most beautiful places in the planet.

The next manuscript is a game changer it erase all my early opinions about Jenny and Lucila. Jenny wrote this at the age of 12. The content is no child’s play. She talks about Astral Projection. Travel denotes the astral body leaving the physical body to travel in the astral plane. It covers a certain discipline, how to calm & relax your body, how to set your mind, the importance of beaming your love to other people, cleansing your soul. It has minute by minute instructions. Something you have to constantly practice for a long period of time to accomplice a result. I’m may be wrong but the general notion for Astral Projection traveling is to turn your self into a child frame of mind. Not to clear to me. Innocent, free from sin, disposal of all negative things in your thought and conscience. Recharging your soul is a must for travelers. Or else you will be stranded in a suspended animation indefinitely.

The story of Lucila. A native of the province of Pampanga. She had the possession of a book written in Latin language. About Astral travelers and their experiences. By the help of some scholars she meet in the national library she successfully finishes the translation of the book. Lucila was an accomplish astral traveler. She visited several universe unknown to man. Lucila first meet Jenny at the national library. When Jenny was six at the time, accompanied by her grandpa a constant visitor of the library. While Lucila was 25. Jenny describe her as a mentor, a loyal friend, Jolly, Vocal, religious, trustworthy, patient, strong hunger for knowledge. Their friendship spanned more than a decade. They develop a sisterhood bonding. Trust to each other is their highest priority.

The last manuscript is about a plot to rescue Lucila’s trap spirit in the netherworld. Lucila refused to accept the idea of Jenny. But Jenny is very determined. She wrote in the manuscript. My devoted boyfriend Marcus will support the plan to the letter. He will match the unquestionable love I gave to him. Marcus will follow me to the depths of the unknown. My years of practice paid off I’m ready to travel. Further reading the content of the last manuscript. My feeling as if I’m a peasant in north Korea while Jenny, Marcus and Lucila are proud owner of IPhone 5 in America. They are discussing all the new features while I’m just a clueless spectator listening to their conversation. The three of them doesn’t care much about their present life.They are looking for the next one.

The National library. I’m not sure whether Lucila is an employee of the Library or just a visitor. Nobody knows her from the administration Department. But a certain Madame Mangan belongs to 3rd generation of Family working in the same establishment. Gave us some info about previous employees. Madame Mangan confirms they have no employee by the name of Lucila. But they had a popular personality back in the 1960′s by the name of Lucila Lalu. A practitioner Astral Projection. She used to tell some unbelievable wild stories. Once she told everyone she was able to reach the gates of heaven and talks to angels. The angels spoke to her, you are pure you can enter our realms. But warn you cannot go back to your friends and relatives anymore. You just have to be patient, wait for them at the right time. Lucila back out and did not pursue. In the last travel of Lucila, something went wrong. Her soulless body she vacate when ever she travel. Attracted and attacked by some dark entities who want to live again in the world of the living flesh. It happens in 1964, since then she stops visiting the library. She became a totally different person. She creates havoc among her family members and loved ones. Her boyfriend knew what inside her body is not Lucila’s soul but an evil entity. In the year 1967 the boyfriend ended Lucila Lalu’s life. I google this part of story it’s too gruesome to discuss. The 26 years disparity of the death of Lucila Lalu and the date birth of Jenny year 1993 is a big question to me.

On august 3, 2012 around 4:00 pm Jenny and Marcus registered their name in the visitors list of the National Library. It appears they never came out of the building.

I’m not yet ready to taste the lips of Lucila; I don’t know where to draw the strength to continue.

The fascinating method of Lucila’s Astral Projection traveling is not new. It is written all over the place. The only problem is most of us refused to understand.

I google the question “how to enter the kingdom of God?” what I got are the following.

English Standard Version (©2001)

And said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 18:4 Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Liv Tyler is arguably one of the most beautiful women in the world; she is certainly one of the most striking. The movie Lord of the rings trilogy made her very popular throughout the globe.

First time i saw her in the movie “Onegin” a terrific film atmospheric, great storyline and great acting. It is the type of timeless film that you will want to revisit time and time again.

I tried to draw her face when I was seven years old, but due to the limitation of my skills at the time it didn’t do any justice, 10 years had past I tried it again.

SW Investments Corporation is a holding company with interests in shopping mall development and management, retail, real estate development, banking and tourism. The SW Group was founded by Harry CY; Sr. It has become one of the largest conglomerates in the Country.

One of their biggest projects is the “Nostalgia Hotel & Mall”. Currently they are facing an adversary. The squatters in the area are hostile. The Initial moved of the corporation is to buy them out. The resident took the money they never evacuate the area. The second step demolition team composed of Police men, riot squad and construction personal. 9 crew 3 leaders of the the demolition team and chief of Police died in a gruesome way. The synopses of Police chief. he went home just like any ordinary day he enter the house shot his dog, he brings out the spyderco knife stab her two young daughters multiple times, slit the throat of the wife. Then he shot himself in the mouth. Asturias squatter town is like the tomb of Tutankhamen. The curse town is headed by two clan leaders Brothers Karamasov composed of 8 siblings and Priestess Aurora. All of them are practitioner of high level Voodoo and Witchcrafts.

The delay of the construction. Cost the corporation millions of money. The CEO of SW investment decided to respond by sending Charlie aka “The Cleaner”.

Monday morning while every single soul in the metropolis is rapidly moving in the busy street. Walking 25% faster than normal, strain to beat the time schedule in the office. Always rushed, always late. I guess that’s why they call it the human race. While Charlie and his girlfriend Gail, writing love poems to each other. Drinking their favorite hot drink at Starbucks coffee. Their young and they have all the time in the world. Charlie likes to shoot BW portraits using his film type Lieca M6 camera. Charlie enjoy eating in fancy restaurant, watching IMAX blockbuster films, picking in the gallery painting while everybody in Metro are diligently working. Charlie got a passion living in a stress free world.

Unexpected Charlie received a phone call from the secretary of Mr. Harry CY. Instructed him to read his confidential email immediately. Charlie and Gail’s world suddenly stop.

Dr. Caligari We are a man of science boy we don’t believe in Voodoo and Witchcraft. According to the autopsy reports the chief of Police died in a gun shot. But what drives him mad is a compound potion of dog rabies, lyssavirus and some unknown drugs. Dr. Caligari boy this will cost you some pain, and then he injects the astronaut green serum to the spinal column of Charlie. The process took 30 minute to complete. This will served as your body armor against any of those mambo jumbo cursed attack.

Pre-arranged Charlie move in the middle of a crowded Town of Asturia. Carrying an old luggage bag and a regular LPG gas tank. Contrary to all the monstrosity intelligence report, Charlie had received. The actual people of Asturia are gentle, polite, hospitable and religious; Brother Karamasov are compose of 8 malnourished individuals free from tattoos and violence. While Priestess Aurora was not an old Witch hag. She was a 42 year old stunning lady that looks like 24. The place was free from digital artifacts. They used rotary phones for communication, most families listen to gramophone records, they are wearing mechanical hand wind wristwatch, majority of people appreciate arts and good writings. Old school craftsmen are all over the place. Most of the things in Asturia were made by hand, and people took pride in their work. It’s like teleporting one town of people during the early 1900 to present day 2012.

Priestess Aurora welcome Charlie to her temple. Priestess said did somebody ever inform you. Entering Asturia is a one way ticket? All strangers are welcome to stay. But once they leave the vicinage of Asturia. In a span of 24 hours they will die in a frightening passion. Same thing applied to all resident of Asturia.

Disbelief Charlie responded, well that is quite a story, your just kidding me, right.

Priestess Aurora reply there are many things between Heaven and earth that cannot be explained. Situation became very serious. Let me level with you Charlie i had this gift i’m a clairvoyance. Give me a few moments I will tell you who you are. The Priestess holds the hands of Charlie, and then both of them sat down on carpet floor. She looks at Charlie eye to eye.     Volume of air pressure inside the room increases. Cold winds twirl around. You are currently working in the largest conglomerates of this country. You did killed few numbers of innocent people in the past.

Charlie react Priestess it’s actually goes with my job.

I prepare you call me Aurora. About the present, your very much in love with a girl working in the embassy, her name is Gail. Both of you loves dating while everyone is working.

About Your Luggage bag it contains a Nokia 5110 mobile phone; an old model phone but it generates a lot of electricity, a typical favorite detonator device for explosive. Some duct tape, a balikbayan box used to trap the fume. Flamethrower’s projectiles made up of gel gasoline, a high grade type rated 12 hours of continues fire, not even a firemen is capable of stoping the flames, and a regular LPG gas tank. So you want it to appear like a typical kitchen fire accident. Your real intention coming here is to burn this place, then level it to the ground.

That’s very sad.

Charlie became uneasy, faze I don’t want this anymore He resist.

Priestess Aurora tries to calm down Charlie. Please, Please I don’t want to lose the vision allow me to finish. Relax, loosen up you are not being accuse. You are here for a reason. Let me continue and look at your future, visions of things that may come to your life! She is breathing heavily. Aurora stops for a moment. Astound on what she saw, then proceed.

You will have to choose between your 22 years old girlfriend. Aurora’s voice stammer and a woman twice your age. Aurora became Wordless when her pipe dream became very visible. She stop for a few moments, she let her eyes communicate to Charlie.

Charlie says what, I didn’t understand.

Priestess Aurora’s pause. Her eyes and lips convey I’m the one. She holds her breath and said please choose me.

Charlie slowly gaze on the flawless face of Aurora then reply, I guess i have to stay then for a while.

As time past bye in Asturia. Charlie savors the stress free life. He adore every moment of his time with the wise Priestess Aurora while the high fidelity phonograph in the background plays the song of Billy Holidays in title “All The Way”.

Charlie compromised the mission.

Hi everyone it’s been a while since the last time I post a drawing lesson. It’s really cool when you can draw your own manga characters! I’m belong to the old school of artist. Before I touch my computer. I draw and sketch all the important concepts of my drawing on a piece of bond paper using a pencil. It’s like keeping a negative of a film type camera. I will decide what type of hair, eyes, skin, facial expression, outfit and perspective. It can be a hero, villain, or neutral. Then draw it on paper. As much as possible I don’t want to alter my original sketches. Once I port it into the digital format, I try to keep it as faithful as possible to the original drawings.

Guide lines on how I scale my drawings. The face of my characters is about + – size of an open palm hand in the sketch. It may change depends on the perspective. The length of the body is about 2 face size. The length of the upper arm should be equal to 1 and half size of the face. The length of the lower arm should be equal twice the size of the face when the fingers are straighten. Hips to knee 2 face ratio. Knee to foot 2 face ratio.

Then I re-draw again everything in a digital format. I used the bond paper sketch as my master reference. For iPad I used sketch book pro application. For desktop computer I used adobe illustrator. Or any drawing or paint software. I don’t let hardware’s and software’s became a hindrance to my passion. A program doesn’t mean much to me. I used pencil, ball pen, brush, my fingers, bamboo pen and regular mouse to draw. Hardware Devices doesn’t matter to me for as long I enjoy what I’m doing.

About The back story of the two characters I draw above. Unfortunately it can not be told in 3 pages or less. So let me try something. Love, Hope and Heartbreak.

Just like when they sentence them for stoning. Eco cannot accept his fate. He shouts to high heaven. I am the instrument of death let me fulfil my destiny!

The blood bursting out of his wound, mix with the chemical he pours in his body. It creates a strange reaction. It sealed his wounds like a silicon antibiotics adhesive. Then a yellow smoke with a distinctive smell rises up, it enter the nostrils of the assassins. The red veins in their eyes enlarge. It creates a strong hallucination and wiggling effect to their heads. Mr. Blunderbuss notice a changed in the physical appearance of the double axe man. He doesn’t like what he saw. He shifts his aim to double axe man and squeeze the trigger. Double axe man is decapitated. Blade master stab blunderbuss underneath his chin pressed up and penetrating the roof of the skull then twist the knife handle. The event became a killing spree among them.

Eco recovered, he escaped the animal net trap. Now he realized his strength and durability. All he needs to do is to let his hand go. How easy he butchers the bodyguards in a brutal fashion.

A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is brave five minutes longer.

By Ralph Waldo Emerson

It’s not as bad as it looks. My future mother Zenaida Cleofas under the brown river of Bocaue bulacan. The year was 1993.

The anniversary of the Holy Cross of Wawa. In the river of bocaue. Zenaida Cleofas on board the floating Pagoda. A decorated barge like a Giant crown of  Queen Elizabeth made of flowers and wooden structured.  All the passenger are dress in old tradition classic saya for ladies and barong for men’s. The scent of different flora is in the air. You can see the joy and excitement painted in their faces. Except for one boy, a native of south Philippines. He looks a bit strange. As if something wicked is about to happen.

The capacity of the Pagoda is around 200 devotees. Due to lack of discipline among the organizer they allow to squeeze in 300 people on board. The integrity of the pagoda was compromised. For Devotees who failed to climb on board. They swim and cling on the side of the pagoda. It created imbalance to the barge. The pagoda all of a sudden became very unstable it turns turtle. More than 300 devotees toss out of the pagoda into the water. Some tenaciously cling on the inverted pagoda, some devotee get panic they start pulling each other. Others end up in flood plain, the deep side of the river. Some trap under the inverted sinking pagoda. The 12 year old boy name Sajid Bulig. Jump out of the barge before the flip. The boy reaches the shore in no time.

Senaida Cleofas break away from the rest of the devotee after the flip. She was not a trained swimmer but her mind set for survival is unquestionable. She knows she doesn’t have the stamina to reach the high river bank. But By holding to a scrap  Styrofoam from the pagoda, about a size of a shoe box and a combination of mere luck She end up in the marsh area. She was able touch down her toes on top of a plastic beer case, after the Styrofoam disintegrated into several pieces. She sank for about 8 inches deep under water then she used the plastic beer case as a spring board to risen her head out of the water and renew air content in her lungs. She keeps her rhythm. She Hold her current position as long as she could until the rescue arrive. It’s a Sink and float situation.

Twelve life guard jump to river to rescue Hundreds of drowning victims. Two of them swam back immediately to the shore. The victims became desperate they swarm to the life guards like leeches. They drag them down to extinction.

Everyone was rattled and stunned with the gravity of the problems on hand. A 10 year old girl clings on a piece of wood in the middle of the chaos shouting for help. The mother desperately looking for the life guard. But nobody responded to her call. She decided to take her own life by joining her daughter to Death River. The bystander stops her.

The 12 years old elementary student name Sajid Bulig had enough of what he sees. He takes charge jump into the river. 1 dozen victims swarm on him. But Unlike the other life guards Sajid is no ordinary boy. He was fast, agile; he can hold his breath longer than an average human being. And he was not afraid of the deep. The boy took all of them to the river floor. The devotee releases their holds to sajid. The boy rises again from the river floor and snatches the 10 year old girl in the middle of the chaos. Both of them reach the shore safe. Sajid jump swam back and forth and save another 5 minors. Sajid Bulig renews the confidence of the other life guards. Several of them joined the rescue.

Just when Zenaida Cleofas about to see the end of days. Her left foot cramp. She starts to sink in the marsh.  No strength to spring board her self. Her body temperature drops.  Hypothermia is taking effect on her.  Bubble of oxygen escapes from her mouth. Out of the blue an arm of a hero pulls her up. Then assisted her to climb the river bank.

The final look at the giant Pagoda before the sank. A Waving arm of a 13 year old girl trap inside. What a perfect way to say goodbye, to her love one. The mother with tears in her eyes, and a lost for words. Looks at the life guards. None of them responded. Turn their heads down. Sajid body cold as ice shaking cover with blanket, after participating in several successful rescues. The mother of the girl turn to Sajid. She Stare at him like a mother to a son. Then she kneels holding the two feet of Sajid begging for the impossible. Sajid look down at the woman in pain. In no time He decided to do what his fellow country men will remember him forever.

Sajid made a sign of the cross. Then dive again in the cold water. He witnessed the grotesques. More the 200 dead corpses drowned under the river. Most of them Eyes wide shut. Sharp Wooden debris everywhere blocking his path. It ripped his flesh. Sajid saw the way with the help of the natural sun light. He was able to locate the girl. Sajid said to the girl. It is very unfortunate we meet this way. Please listen to me carefully close your eyes. Don’t open it until we reach the shore. The last thing we need is a distraction. Inhale all the air you can take in your body, hold your breath. We will take a deep dive, hold my hand tight flip your feet constantly, I promise we will reach the shore in no Time. With Out a warning a big piece of wood, a scrap from the damage pagoda drop like a French guillotine hitting Sajid on the head. He was bloody as hell. His vision was affected. But sajid is determined to finish the mission. He uses all his remaining strength. They dive together, cross the river of death and bring the 13 year old girl safe in the shore. Upon reaching the river bank Sajid collapsed.

The citizen of Bocaue still managed to bring Sajid to the nearby hospital but the young boy was not immediately attended by physicians. The hospital at that time was swamped with victims.

Sahjid died at the age of 12 and was declared later as a hero of the 1993 pagoda tragedy.

Boy’s have no idea how long something they said can stay with girl’s mind.

15 years ago end of summer vacation inside the Green house two toddlers are playing everyday as if the days will never end. The boy whispers to the girl when we grow up we will meet each other again at university of the Philippines. The girl kiss the boy in the cheek then the boy said promised, the girl said yes! The boy disappears the next day.

Present day. Somebody accidentally detonate my Alarm clock. Clunk clunk clunk. I heard my mother open the Tivoli kitchen radio Stevie wonder enter the scene for once in my life i have some one who needs me para ra ra ra ra ra…. My Mobile phone received 3 text messages From Jade lets have lunch, meet me at serendra park 11:00am. Something important to tell you. Jade a first year college student these coming school year while me, I’m graduating in high school. She teaches me how to draw marvel comics in exchange I teach her Manga. We play risk, Monopoly, Carcassonne and other German board games. Every summer vacation almost every year. We attended violin lessons together to the same music teacher. She makes me happy and cheers me up. Jade is the epitome of a gorgeous woman, but most of her suitors gave up on her already. Bad news she only entertains friendship nothing more nothing less. For some unknown reason Jade is a very tight person. To most boys she was label as a full pledge Catholic, a Sexy lesbian, a Man hater. But in the minds of Nonoy Manga she is one of my all time crush. Ha ha ha…

A walk in the Park. I arrived exactly 10:00 am i’m so excited I waited for one and a half hour. I call her cell phone several times it keeps on ringing nobody answers. Wow it doesn’t feel right somebody play a practical joke on me. I’m so stupid I can’t even remember when was the last time I had a real date. Now I bite the bait an invitation from a hot chick. May be too good to be true. I’m starting to doubt my self, and start to lose my poise.

I gave up on her around 12:15 pm. just when I’m about to leave serendra park somebody calls my name Nonoy. An angel in guess jeans baby pink shirt shows up. The disappointment in my face melted. She pull out her Mulan wooden comb then straighten my hair, she align the round neck collar of my Gap t-shirt. Then blow a channel perfume on me. We end up having the same fragrance. She told me sorry the traffic is heavy and she left her iPhone in her bed room. I hold her hand then we cross the street together its zero resistance. So far so good.

Getting all the right signal. We eat in the Thai food restaurant. She mixes the beef salad, then she filled my bowl with the tom yum gong soup, she unwrap the chicken pandan then put it on my plate. She toss a lot of funny jokes. I almost died laughing.

The Arcade room. I bought 25 pieces of tokens. Jade is a 19 year old teenager but inside the game center i notice the 5 year old girl inside her shows up. We play all the classic funny stuff hitting the mole creature on the head with a sledge hummer, ray gun vs. Godzilla, bump cars, foss ball to air hockey.

The moment of truth! We sat at Starbucks coffee I’m enjoying my frappuccino drink while I eat the munchies. Gee i’m a proud boy sitting beside her. While everyone is looking at us. I over heard one bystander whispered what a wonderful couple. Then Jade became too serious with a bit of sparkles in her eyes, she said I received an old fashion letter yesterday! My child hood soul mate said in the letter, it’s time he will fulfill his promised, we will study together in the number 1 University of the Country. Upon hearing that my heart as big as a honeydew Mellon stop. Drop in the floor flat like a frozen pepperoni pizza. The munchies almost choke me to death. I almost spit it on her. I pause for a while to recuperate and then i said to her “who is this boy”!!! My voice gurgled then she explained. (Please refer to the first and second paragraph of this post.)

The Bus station. She bought a ticket for one. Then we hug each other without saying goodbye the scene is a total silent. She ride the the red transit going to the university of the Philippines to meet the boy of his dream.

My summer vacation is doom. No more motivation to continue the violin lessons, the end of the era for summer board games. Who will save me now in the dance floor; all my partners will be boys again. Unlike Jade most girls have no interest on me. But I won’t let sorrow hurt me. I’m not going to carry this burden alone. I will pass it on, text broadcast my experience using my cellphone will see how people will react.

Tons of friendly text spam has arrived!!!

From Ms. Shane: I suggest that if you really love someone, grab hold with both hands and don’t let go.

From Marcus: let her know how you feel.

From Rica: Did you ever stop to think that she may have given up on you and decided to move on? Maybe she is afraid of telling you how she feels about you. Maybe she loves you.

From grandpa Yagit: I was in love with a beautiful young lady many years ago, never realized it because it had never happened before. Result was, I lost the one person I really feel I was meant to be with. You don’t want to have a lifetime of “what if…” or “I should have…”. Take it from me, it ain’t fun.

From Jonilo: Let her know before it is too late & let the chips fall where they may. Who knows, they may land right in your arms.

From teacher Catherine: I messed up once by not letting my true feelings show. I will never have the chance again. I do not know what the outcome would have been, but knowing the truth would be a lot easier than not ever knowing what might have been. Go for it.

4 Nigerian black guys! Riding in a jet black Toyota altis interrupt what I’m doing. They went out of the car the stereo is on a full volume a Michael buble version of for once in my life I have some one who needs me para ra ra ra ra ra….play. All 4 of them turn their heads look in the same direction. I’m too busy reading the text messages I didn’t realized the traffic didn’t move for about 20 minutes. I turn my self toward same direction as the Nigerians and I saw 100 meters away the red transit bus. I didn’t care what causes the traffic.

Please make my dreams come through. My walkathon, turn into jogging, jogging then turn into marathon. The adrenalin is flowing in my body. I can’t recall whether my foot is still touching the ground. But at 50 meters away the traffic is moving at 15 klm per hour I start to feel the decrease of gas in my body my breathing is heavy.  I’m almost there 30 meters away from the red bus. The traffic move 20 klm per hour the red signal light turn green with a little traffic, 5 meters away is the best I can do. With extra determination. Finally I’m toe to toe with the bus. My physical strength can’t stand the mean machine. I practically suck all the street dust and dirty smokes. I reach into my pocket grab some of the left over tokens from the arcade center and I start throwing it to jades view window. After 4 attempts I got her attention. She was surprised and disoriented to see me chasing her bus. Then I point my big thumb to my chest to say I, then I form a heart shape using my two hands to say love, then I point to her to say you. I had done all the gesture while running the marathon. Then she gave me the million dollar smile. She kiss her right palm long enough then she press it on the glass window of the red bus. Then i felt the feeling of relief. Its time to stop running and catch my breath. I stood there until the red bus transit hit the vanishing point.

The gunman didn’t hesitate he shoot the father at gun point Multiple times. The wife went out of the vehicle seek help to the bystanders in the street but nobody responded. The Gunmen Took the bag of money at will then leaved the crime scene.

Loosely base on the encounter of a real estate agent Mrs. Zenaida Cleofas with the supernatural.

Not everything that glitters is gold. When a real estate property changed hands 5 times in less than 1 year. Something must be very wrong. A series of bizarre unexplained things happened to a real estate agent the moment she steps inside the perimeter of the villa.

The powder room. Inside a very quiet 2 cubicle space. She heard strange movement, flushing of the toilet in one of the cubicle. But when she checks the compartment partition. No living soul is present. The bowl is dried to the bottom. Reserved water tank is empty, for a long period of time. Rust stain is visible but Lacking of precipitation or humidity.

The houses of cards.The hallway of the villa are very narrow and claustrophobic. Most the rooms had multiple doors. It makes it Impossible for you to locate your way back to the building exit. The place had no mirrors or sign of reflections. Most of the room are too silent and contain. Un-affected from the noise of the outside world. The smell of the rooms mostly formalin and cordite. The room temperature is freezing, air are tin difficult to breath just like in a high altitude.

Cutting edge of technology. Mobile phone doesn’t work in the area. She tries to google her way out of the situation using 3G data signal. All she got are strange looking characters appearing in her mobile phone screen. The walls had an inner layer of lead plate. The only remaining used of the cellphone is the illumination of the LCD screen. Served as a handy flash light.

The Nervous breakdown. After wondering inside the villa for more than 6 hours with no food, water and detached with the outside civilization. She realized she is no longer in control of her life. The feeling is like your mind is too occupied with problems and you accidentally chopped 3 of your fingers by a cleaver while your preferring a regular dishes in the kitchen. Or while driving in a local neighborhood a mind lapse occurred you suddenly run over a kid while he tries to cross the street. She passes the stages of Frustration, shock, Fear, and then the acceptance of reality prevails.

Gravity. To quantify the problem at hand.Things crisscross inside her mind. Imagine your are in an open sea then one of your leg cramp. Normally most people will be drowned. Due to panic. But according to the expert in the field of swimming. You still have 2 arms and another leg. If you can deal with pain in one of the your leg. You can still manage to get out of the situation. By using your 2 arms to swim and one leg as flipper. The scenario in the villa is not as bad as compared to survival in the open sea. 90% of the problem in the real world can be solved by money. Used it if you can. Buy your self out of trouble. While the remaining 10% monetary value has no meaning. Just like being trap inside the intense aversion villa.

Pulling out all the stops. It’s getting late. I have to regroup my self and look for a way out. I need to find some kind of a pattern. After a random visit to all the different rooms. She notices one of the doors is very distinctive. It has a touch of elegance. By mere curiosity she open the door. A big gray tone, moody atmospheric ballroom surprises her. On the left side an old Baldwin grand piano. It automatically plays by it self, Gymnopedie no.1 by Erik Sati without a present of a pianist. She sat on the floor and rests her back to the ballroom wall. The melody relaxed her. All The corners of the room had a pitch black shape shifters inside some unknown entities. As the melody progresses the pitch black images occupy the bigger area of the room. Time is running out.Think, she slap her face, think dammit, think, she pulls her hair, remember something significant!

The mirage. A long time ago. Grandpa was trap in similar situation in the woods. On his way home he saw the family house 200 meters away. Grandpa walks hours and hours but no matter how many hundreds of steps he takes he cannot reach the point of destination. According to grandpa he was able to free him self by accident. The only thing he can remember, His t-shirt is soak with sweat due to perspiration. He removed the t-shirt and squeezes it. Upon doing so he accidentally wear the t-shirt in a reverse manner when he wear it back. When he starts to continue his course he notice the family house is getting closer and closer as he moves alone. The story becomes folklore in the province.

The Weapon of choice. The piano music is about to wind down. The pitch black shape shifters occupy more than 90% of the area. All of a sudden she started hearing razor sharp claws scratching the wooden ballroom walls. A burst of loud scream of disturbs entities. Voices of Hate, grudges and anger all over the place. Loud Stamping in the floors and ceiling. Smell of dead animals. Unpleasant Steam coming out from a nostril of the beast. Before the piano music end she about to finish reversing all her outfit start from bottom going to the top. At the time the piano play the last note. She slowly stood up tired, her arms are weary. She Wipe the tears in her eyes and deliver her final oration. In front of the fiendish crowd. She did it at the top of her lungs. She said I have no doubt I’m going to die! But I hate disappoint all of you. Not today! I have a son name “Nonoy” and he is waiting for me. I intend to go home. I’m going to see him finish his high school course, get a college degree, he will find a decent job, he will marry a respectable woman, he will have his son’s and daughter’s, I will grow old and happy. And that’s the only term and condition I will agree upon. Before I face my creator. Out of her right palm she open a make up kit with a mirror. Then face it against them. Then she starts to march forward and recite Psalm 23.

The Lord is my shepherd,

I shall not want;

He makes me lie down in green pastures.

He leads me beside still waters;

He restores my soul.

He leads me in paths of righteousness

For His name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley

Of the shadow of death,

I fear no evil;

For you are with me;

Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

All the days of my life;

And I shall dwell in the house of the

Lord forever.

Alls quiet at the western front. At time she finished the recital. She bumps on a brass metal door nub. She turns it clockwise and a bright sun shine touch her face. She is right in a middle of an asphalt road. A High speed taxi stop in front her. The passenger door open. She ride, there are unknown characters in the plate name. But the two ending number are 23.

Loosely base on a real life story of Rica, Allyson, Shane, Marcus, Jonilo and  Nonoy Manga

On a clear day you can see forever. Nonoy Manga circa 2009. I was in 6 grade. I had a very strong affection with my best friend Allyson, the anime chick in the school.  A real live K-ON character that looks like Mio. I practically spend 90% of my time with her. We study, play, laugh, and eat together. The feeling was like in heaven. Until one morning i had a rude awakening. There is one serious problem. Allyson is not in love with Nonoy. She had no love interest with the artist. Allyson is too much attached to her newly found modern  high-tech toys and computers. Less and less of her I see every day. The days of the classic are numbered. I cry to high heaven to grant my wish! To bring my best friend back to her senses. But the Gods did not listen to me. I can’t accept how fast things had change. Everything is too late. Her eyes are all focus with Marcus. The gadget boy in the school.

Some like it hot. Even cute girls had their bad days. Marcus had zero attraction with a cartoon character looking chicks. What Marcus wants is a real woman. Like Shane middle initial “the body”.  The Best of house wife and the best of FHM model at a young age.

Reality check. The notion of Unstylish computer boy going out with the bombshell Happens only in dreams. Shane is not allures with nerd boy like Marcus. Shane love interest is the hunk Jonilo. A natural born athlete with the dexterity of Tarzan. A basketball super star that can do all sort of arial tricks.

Missing in action.  Jonilo a dynamo boy. Find home body Shane boring. Jonilo is craving for thrill and excitement for a girl. The character of Rica fits like a glove for Jonilo. Rica is a young girl with a face of an angel & a body builds for a ramp models. A natural devilish girl. A Femme fetale. Too tough for her own good. Rica is always enigmatic and unpredictable. She gets pleasure by polluting the minds of the young boys.  For Jonilo, Rica is the perfect trophy girl.

The agony of defeat. Rica was a born sadist. She will lift your spirit, then drop you like a hot potato. She rips a suitor’s heart just like tissue papers. What Rica wants is Nonoy, somebody she can kick in the nuts and scared the living day light out of the him. Rica despised the mental position of Jonilo. She find Jonilo Tarzan attitude too bravado for her taste. What Rica wants is total control. Not being dominated. The idea of a sadist and masochist always play in the depths of her mind. To Rica the Character of Jonilo had no place in her world. She quickly end the quest of Jonilo like a Ravage gladiator inside the death arena. During the middle ages the church called this practice “Excommunicatus”.

To Right the Unrightable wrong. When Rica break the news to Nonoy about Allyson eye balling with Marcus. The naive heart of Nonoy shatters, like a crystal glass pitcher with a strawberry flavored cool aid juice. Rapidly hitting a solid granite floor. Red liquid Splash all over the place. Fast forward, instead of dwelling to his bitter fate. Nonoy found a new love interest with Rica. She is like mana straight from heaven. A medicinal patch to a hole in the chest. A healing companion. In fact Nonoy’s mother gave the seal of approval. She fined Rica a girl with astonishing beauty. Highly recommended. If your criteria is purely appearance and still pictures. In the coming days. The more Nonoy learned about Rica the more Nonoy distance him self. What Nonoy cannot accept is how Rica terrorist his daily school life. The voice of Rica alone is like a buzz saw. She got an annoying personality. It is very difficult for Nonoy to win an argument. In between class Rica play around with her solid all steel mini hammer. To intimidate classmates and control the level of happiness inside the class room. In effect it terrified Nonoy the most. He doesn’t enjoy his life anymore. Nonoy practically spend most of his time in the school hiding. Either in the janitor closet or library.

Diamondiferous. To all the people Nonoy meet in his entire school life. Rica is the most organized, transparent, never a hypocrite. What you see to Rica is what you get. She can be a very successful business woman in the future.

The sum of all fears. The situation is more twisted than a pretzel factory. So we all moved on with our lives. Like little puppies. We all graduated in the six grades. Less the idea of a little romance.

The element of what might had been. 3 years had past and we decided to call each other for a reunion. We rented a private pool and have a swimming party together. During diner time we started talking about our lives and love interest. Especially during grade school days. And we realized how complex the situation then. All of us stood our ground. None of us actually back out. No body gives a damn about the feelings of the other person. My inferred proposition of syllogism. May be we are just a bunch of selfish Teenagers. Or we don’t know the real meaning of the word Love.

Imagine right before your eyes. Sea levels have risen significantly, inundating coastal cities such as Yokohama, Mount Fuji erupted in living memory, and climate change has occurred. With the seasons being less pronounced, the winters are milder and the summer isn’t scorching anymore. The reduced human population has reverted to a simpler life, and the reader is told this is the twilight of the human age.

Besides enumerating the indulgence of the Prophet Doom.

Life on planet earth is not as bad as you think. To all the lucky survivors. You don’t need to wake up 4:00 am in the morning to prefer you’re self for a big task in the office. There is no more heavy traffic in the street. You don’t need to wrestle your way in the commuters train. No need to worry about increasing prices of oil and consumer goods. No more mountain of paper works in the office station. No angry customer. No rush service. You don’t need to hide from a tax man. No expensive electric bills. No need to worry about your credit standing. A Sudden disappearance of demanding bosses.

Your new alarm clock is crowing at the break of dawn (“cock-a-doodle-doo”) a rooster.  You can wake up in bed at any time you wish. Take your morning breakfast free from high anxiety. Write your beloved poem with out a hustle. Practice your photography as long as you want, listen to birds, go fishing, paint nature, do home improvement at your pace. Read your favorite books. No war only peace. Back to basic.

Rather than get all angsty about how civilisation is slowly but inexorably fading away, the survivors enjoy a peaceful and idyllic life, full of reflection and wonder for the world around them. Nobody gets stressed, angry or downbeat; they go about their usual routines with moments of sadness or disappointment met with quiet resignation. The English phrases “life goes on,” “the good old days,” or “these things happen…” are summed up with one succinct phrase that encompasses poignancy and bittersweet sentiment.

In Quiet Country Cafe Meet Alpha Hatsuseno an android (“robot person”) who runs an out of the way coffee shop, Café Alpha, on the lonely coast of the Miura Peninsula of Japan, while her human “owner” is on a trip of indefinite length. Though she spends much of her time alone, Alpha is cheerful, gregarious, and unlike the slowly declining humans. Alpha is Immortal.

During my Greek Mythology class my professor told us to draw one mythological God or Hero. Most of my classmates choose to draw the popular one like Perseus, Zeus, Hercules, Aphrodite. While Me I choose to draw Hera. Because I find her very intriguing.

A young beautiful woman, said to be the most beautiful of all goddesses, even beating out Aphrodite.

Interesting Fact: Hera is said to restore her virginity each year by bathing in Kanathos, a sacred spring. One tale suggests Hera used magic to force Zeus into marrying her in a secret ceremony. Given some of Zeus’s later behavior, perhaps it was a secret even from him. Other tales have Zeus seducing her, in the form of a damp cuckoo bird seeking refuge in her lap during a storm.

The Story of Argus – sometimes I think the origin of these being are from another world or may be an alien being. Argus has a special ability to see everything around him like a modern CCTV surveillance cameras. No matter how strong and fast his opponent he can always telegraph an attack. He can evade and do a counter attack.

Hera almost caught Zeus with a mistress named Io, a fate avoided by Zeus turning Io into a beautiful white heifer. However, Hera was not completely fooled and demanded that Zeus give her the heifer as a present.

Once Io was given to Hera, she placed her in the charge of Argus to keep her separated from Zeus. Zeus then commanded Hermes to kill Argus, Hermes, disguised as a shepherd, first put all of Argus’s eyes asleep with spoken charms, and then slew him by hitting him with a stone, the first stain of bloodshed among the new generation of gods. In Ovid’s interpolation, when Hera learned of Argus’ death, she took his eyes and placed them in the plumage of the peacock, accounting for the eye pattern in its tail 39. Hera then sent a gadfly Greek oistros, compare oestrus to sting Io as she wandered the earth. Eventually Io settled in Egypt, where according to Ovid she became the Egyptian goddess Isis.

If you think drawing anime is difficult think again.

Learn to navigate window screen pause, forward and backward key.

Method of drawing is simple. Make a drawing guide slide 1. Used pencil. Then Copy everything you see in the screen. After slide 3 erased drawing guide. Then apply color and shade if you desire.In the coming days I will release more simple anime drawing. In the likes of naruto characters, dragon ball z, k-on, bleach, one piece, full metal alchemy, fairytale etc.

Good luck
