Discerning The Duality Of A Triptych: Happiness

There are two things I could say I learned from this triptych. The first one, like what I said in the beginning, is that my verdict was incorrect; surprisingly, I advised Theo the wrong path to take. The second one is that Rey's belief about love, no matter how much far-fetched it may sound, could actually happen in real life. And both of these lessons stemmed from a single reason: Theo's decision.

This had been a hell of an emotion storm, and that's why I was, in fact, glad with the outcome. Theo finally knocked some sense into himself. Fortunately, he didn't pick the option of becoming miserable again in the arms of Justin. A few days after our secret conversation, Theo agreed to meet him somewhere. He told Justin upfront to get lost and to never bother him again. Justin expected otherwise, so just imagine his extreme belief after hearing that. I wish I have seen his reaction; it must have been priceless. Theo's rejection speech was so long, that his irate ex didn't let him finish and walked out on him. He was shaking the whole time, from head to foot, but it made him feel triumphant and free; feelings that he had been waiting for so long.

On the other hand, Theo couldn't stand the idea of picking up the broken pieces on his own. He wanted someone he could lean on in times like this. He needed an understanding soul to aid him in his goal. He thirsted for love. Being alone was another option he had no desire to take. So what's left then?

Yep, he chose Rey. After giving Justin a taste of his own goddamn medicine, Theo went straight to my best friend. He told him everything there is to spill. Rey remained quiet all through out. After a hearty exchange of tears and apologies, words needed not be spoken anymore. Instead, a warm and lengthy hug ended their sorrowful talk. With Rey's patience and guidance, they continued Theo's rehabilitation until he's totally moved on. It wasn't an easy feat, I tell you. But they made it. And I'm proud of them.

Afterwards, Theo began to develop mutual feelings for Rey. Though its pace was rather slow, at least it was steady. Before they celebrate their first year, they are already two almost inseparable love birds. A huge improvement compare to what they were at the start. I couldn't be happier for Rey as his efforts came into fruition.

As their relationship grew stronger, I started to hang out frequently with the two of them. Theo is actually a pretty cool guy when he's not drunk with self-destructive love (obsession would be a better term). He's very witty and has what seems to be an unlimited supply of interesting stories. I always enjoy my time with them. They are a hoot.

"Sana noon pa nagsimula kung ano man ang meron kami ni Rey. Ang tagal kasi niya umamin; wala rin naman akong idea. Eh di sana hindi na ako naghirap pa sa Justin na yun," he told me one time while we were dining out.

"Blessing in disguise na din yung narasan mo sa bwisit na 'yun. Marami ka naman natutunan, di ba? Sayang nga lang yung oras na ginugol mo sa kanya. But still, you came out of it stronger and better. Kaya fret no longer, Theo," I suggested.

"Well, naisip ko lang naman. Nakonsensya talaga ako dito dahil nadamay pa siya sa pagiging mahina ko... Siya ang pinakakawawa sa nangyari," he said while looking at Rey.

"Don't be. Alam mo ba kung sino ang pinakakawawa?" I said.

"Sino?" Rey asked.

"Si Justin. Dapat mo talaga siyang kaawaan kasi tingin ko hindi siya magiging tunay na masaya, base sa ugali at personality niya. Hindi siya makakahanap ng isang malalim at makabuluhang relasyon kung patuloy siyang magiging isang mababaw na tao. That would be his curse kung hindi siya magbabago," I explained.

"Well, may point ka. Dapat lang sa kanya 'yun. Screw him..." Theo said.

Rey laughed and said, "Bitter pa rin?"

"Tomoh. Ampalayang-ampalaya lang," I added.

Speaking of Justin, you might be wondering what happened to him. Forgive me for I have no idea. Not that I want to know, really. I never met the guy. And even of I did, I still wouldn't care. Theo never heard from him again after that rejecting him. And I'm sure that that is just fine with Theo; he wanted Justin to be as far away from him as possible.

Did Theo and Rey live happily ever after?

I guess so. As of today, they are nearing their third anniversary. They have surely come a long way. From their story, one could conclude that for every person that can cause you sorrow, there will always be another one who will give you happiness. And vice versa. Like one wouldn't exist without the other; you just have to know where to look. All in all, it was one hell of a crazy ride, with an ending straight up towards cloud nine.

  5. In agreement to your last statement, as I always say - things happen for a reason. Relationships do not work out, as they are, simply not meant to be..it may be hard to accept and see that when you're wallowing in heartache but when the right one comes along, you go "ah, this is the reason" :)

    Really nice ending to this Geosef :)
