PAUNAWA: Muli pong nagbabalik ang diary ng lolo ko sa ayaw at sa gusto ninyo.
Nov.16, Wednesday Morning
MY FIRST LETTER TO DEAREST- I pretended to borrow her Arithmetic book on way to school only to insert my dear letter secretly.
Nov. 18, Friday Evening
She attended the Novena. At first, I saw her and try to go with her but evidently she was lost from my sight. I tried all my best to find her but my efforts are in vain. Roman accompanied her and Oh! I was broken-hearted when I learned about this. My mind was always in distress for I cannot forget such an incident. (by Roman himself)
Nov. 20, Sunday Night
TOWN FIESTA-- I am with her and her small sisters in front of the church. Oh, I am very happy by her side conversing about sundry things. Then I tried to quiz her by asking, "Did you attend the Novena last Friday night?" she answered, "Yes, and Duman is trying to accompany me always when I don't want to be accompanied." So I then realized that he was really with her that night.
A SECRET DISCOVERED-- Roman and I are conversing in the street. From him, I found out that they are engaged. But I don't know. She said canu, "IF YOU CAN WAIT, I CAN WAIT TO; BUT IF YOU CAN'T I MAY LOOK FOR MY OWN" And when R. wants something to tell her, he tries to whistle and she will then pretend to go to her aunt's house. Oh what a sad news is this to me, I who really care and love her.
Dec. 1, Sunday Morning
DEAREST FIRST LETTER TO ME-- I am buying bread and she handed it to me in a newspaper. Oh how my heart palpitated! I was thrilled with joy to receive her dear answer! So then I hurried home too anxious to learn its contents. The letter brought me a RAY OF HOPE. I then realized that she cares for me. She only prepares modesty rather than frankness. That is the very type of girl I appreciate. At night, I pretended to buy coffee in the store only to talk with her. She flatters me by saying, "On vacation I will stay in our barrio because of that affair. When I was there, I have never been troubled about that. I don't want to disturb my studies." I am about to answer her and convince her but her aunt suddenly entered thestore and our love talks was cut. Then I just went home.
Dec. 9, Afternoon
ON WAY TO SCHOOL: Dearest gave me a ticket for their cine benefit. At night I borrowed her prayer book for me to study. Then when she saw me in the street, she called Silia,their "ama" and let her give it to me.
Dec.10, Sunday after Mass
I tried to pay the ticket but she does not want to get the money even I put them in her hands. Oh! how she cares for me! Oh Dearie!
Dec. 24, Night
MAYTINES: Dearest went to the market and when she went home, R. accompanied her on her way home.
Dec. 28, Night
WHILE TAKING A WALK: I found R. in her store talking with her while Dandong is in front of her house waiting for him. Then to free myself from being seen, I went back and passed in the small street. Silently, I stood near the artesian hearing the conversation. He was giving her a gift but she did not want to accept it. That is what I learned on that very night.
Dec. 30, Night
IN THEIR STORE: I am conversing with her while she is MANIALUCSUC. I did not know why I feel no shame to her companions. Fear is unknown to me this time. Really, LOVE is the strongest thing on earth. Then the municipal treasurer came in and asked me to draw a picture to be used for the coming New Year. Then the next morning woke up early and accomplished the task.
