The Festival of Hearts...

I feel like flying ing the sky when I'm with you...

The cold night was fast approaching as we walk across the streets of the busy town... Every one was running around, everyone looks happy, as if their problems slowly drifts away with the cold mists that covered the land... It was getting late, but we were still awake... The loud screams and uttered laughters were heard even though it was noisy outside...

Zai and her brother asked me to go with them at this carnival that every year, visits this small but lovely town... Of course, I didn't decline... For the first time, I experienced something new... Something that would change my life... Excited at the same time, nervous, we went to the carnival... Didn't mind the time... It was getting late, but we didn't care...

Everone was laughing around, having fun... Others were dissapointed, for some of them lost at some of the games... Lost their 5 peso coins... Some were singing their hearts out at the videoke bar right beside the rides... As we came closer, my heart started to pound hardly... My eyes opened wider when we approached the main attraction of the carnival... The Ferris Wheel...

This ferris wheel was different, it was beyond normal... It had this certain touch that made the people come back for more, or rather... DIDN'T came back for more... What was different? Well, this ferris wheel spins a lot faster than any normal carnival ferris wheels... When I said a lot faster... I really mean it.. It spins for about 20kph and when it rolls back down, as if you were falling down... As if the gravity pulls you back at the main land...

At first I was having 2nd thoughts... Who wouldn't? The ride was so scary to begin with... As I sat at the ground, waiting patiently and thinking of what might happen... She slowly sat beside me... Comforted me with her sweet voice... I must admit, she made me feel better... Finally the ride stopped... And it was our turn... I can't believe I'm doing this...

We took our seat at the ride where only 2 persons can fit... She sat with me... It made me feel better, and stopped the hard poundings of my heart... As the ride slowly fills up the empty seats, I can already feel the adrenaline and the blood slowly pumping up in my head... I felt my face was looking pale... She saw it... I should know for she was laughing...

"Bakit ka tumatawa?"
"Wala lang, natatawa ako sayo..."
"Bakit? Anong nakakatawa?"
"Namumutla ka na oh!"

I tried my best not to look pale... I even laugh with her just so the dizziness would go away... Then... Something happened... Our seat stopped at the heighest part of the ride... There were no customers around so I concluded that we will stay here for a while... Then, all of my worries seemed to fade away... I was not scared anymore... Right there at the top, every seemed to stop... The view there was magnificent... We saw the whole town...

"Ang ganda..."
"Uu nga eh..."

I wanted to tell her that I'm not really looking at the view... I was looking at her... But then I was too shy... And dizzy at the same time... Then I held her hand....

"Kinakabahan na ko..."
"Ok lang yan, wag ka kabahan, kasama mo ko...."
"Waaa.. Ayan na gumagalaw naaa..."
"Haha, uu nga yeheeyy!"
"Grabe ang saya mo ah..."
"Haha, ayos lang yan, ayaw mo non, first time mong sumakay dito, kasama mo pa ko"
"Uu nga eh... Ang saya saya ko nga eh..."
"Hehe.. O edi, hindi mo ko malilimutan! :P"
"Uu nga noh.. Hehe.. Bahala naaa! WAAAAHH!!"

Then the ride started its horror... We fell down at 9.8m/secĀ²... Free fall... And then up again... Continued its cycle... I never stopped screaming... And she never stopped laughing at me...

It was the most embarassing, yet.. The most memorable experience I ever had... She's right.. I will never forget this...
