#ProjectFlashPiction Day 11: George Town

08:48 Posted by Cindy Wong Dela Cruz No comments
     "Give me that coffee, and you hold this, we better run NOW, or we miss our flight!" We rushed to the aircraft and successfully found our seats. We got last-called again. Every time I travel with Jamie, we always "almost miss the flight." Our routine usually goes:

Check-in >> Eat >>Get coffee >> Rush to our flight.

     Ever since it has always been Jamie and me, we travel to different places since we were young. Now that we're in our 30's, our old habits remain the same. This time, a getaway to Malaysia, a place where I decided to confess how I feel about her. I decided a long time to get out of the "friend zone." Unlike our flights, I always miss the chance to tell her the truth. That evening as we were exploring George Town in a rickshaw, she noticed my anxiety.      
     "Hey, what's wrong?" she asked touching my forehead. "Are you sick?" I swallowed, started feeling nauseous. 
     "Jamie, I have something to tell you." We stared at each other's eyes. I figured this is going to be a significant risk to our friendship. But what the hell? It's now or never. "I-I..." I stuttered. I can't say it. The cat got my tongue AGAIN! I so want to kick my ass right now. 
      She smiled and to my surprise, pulled me gently towards her. "Jacob, just shut up and kiss me please."

Project Flash Piction is an everyday writing project by KB Meniado based on pictures. This time, photo was taken while in George Town, Penang.

About Me

My photo

I love traveling and being immersed with different cultures. It has cultivated my love for learning and has exposed me to different perspectives. I'm a travel specialist during the day, while writing has always been my first love (considering my love of books, of course). I am an editor of Lapis sa Kalye (Hindi ito ang normal mong nababasa)**a Facebook page which promotes Philippine Literature, one of the writers of the published book - **PENDULUM. I was also the Editor in Chief of our online magazine which published free literary works. I also post my works in Wattpad reaching more than 70k reads.

And when I need a real breather, I take pictures and edit them. I'm still developing my style in this area, I don't usually follow Photography rules, I just try to have fun along the way.
