Last January, Tinig ng Plaridel released a call for contributions of their stories of love and loss within Plaridel Hall, the home of College of Mass Communication students. Of all submissions, seven entries were chosen for a week-long run as a pre-Valentine’s Day series.

I was rushing down the stairs because it was late and my dad was waiting for me in the parking lot. A few more steps and I’d be off the stairs, but the boy I was with stopped me. “I have the biggest crush on you,” he whispered. It was the first time anyone said that to me. I panicked, speechless, and ran away. We’ve been together for two years now.
