Road trip to attend a wedding of a long lost friend

almost a reunion

semi-overcast 29 °C

4:30PM Saturday, March 27. Its windy and cloudy outside. I am all set for a long drive tomorrow to attend a wedding of a long lost friend. A member of the "mauy barkadahan". It is going to be a reunion, but why did I tag it as "Almost a reunion"? Here's why:

It was a tuesday, March 23. We were on a picknick with my family in our small lot somewhere far south. I was busy chatting and entertaining my girlfriend who came with us to join the fun when I received a text message from an unknown number. "Bin, Pua ni bai. Attend mo ako kasal inig sunday ha, 3pm diri argao.". I was surprised. It's been 2 years since we've been trying to reach this person and all of a sudden I would receive such text message from him. Without hesitation, I immediately confirm to his invitation and cascade it to the active members of Mauys. We exchange few text messeges trying to catch up with each other. I invited him to a volleyball game on Wednesday but he was busy preparing for his wedding. I updated him on few things that had happened to us. He's missed a lot, we missed him too. We hope this event will be successfull.

Few minutes later, Daot confirmed his attendance and he was as excited as I was. He said he was just on the phone with Pua discussing about his wedding. It was clear that they had interesting topics and funny topics shared just by listening to his story about their phone conversation. Yesterday, Chard also replied to confirm that he is also coming and is asking for details where we would convene so we could all go travel together to Argao. Sadly, Phraim declined. I already knew that he could not come since Sunday is his family day. I understood though, he never comes if a celebration is on a Sunday. It must have been so hard for him to refuse the invitation since this is a Major event and a posible reunion to the Barkda. I know deep inside him he is really wanting to go with us. I felt sorry for him.

I was waiting for one person to acknowledge the invitation. I've been calling her. I was patient, I was waiting for days for her to reply. I would understand if she couldn't come, but I was just waiting for her to say that. Up to this very day, I am still waiting. But it seems like I will never receive any acknowledgment from her. So I give up. How could she refuse something so important to the group? She doesn't even bother texting. What a shame. I could finally tell who's been true to the group all along. I can't blame Ikai for her grudges to the group back then. It could be because of this one person. Anyhow, I dont want to force somebody who doesn't give importance to this reunion. If she doesn't care, the hell we give a damn back to her.

This is suppose to be another mem'rable reunion for the Mauys. But unfortunately, due to a lack of desire to have this event a friuitful one. I could only come up with a heading, "Almost a reunion". On the brighter side though, my girlfriend will be coming with us. Though she's not a member of Mauys, we still think of her as part of the group.

The car is already in good condition, i hope. So everything is good to go. I'll have some few drinks tonight and tomorrow, its going to be a road trip.
