[세부에서생긴일] Part 6 of 7: Cebu Annyeong!

Did we really meet them? Met all of them? Especially Suna Unnie?

All the hardships and tiredness suddenly disappeared. We met them. We met them well!

Everything happened so fast. A few days ago I was just in school, trying to meet deadlines while enjoying SOAW every weekend. I have never imagined that I’d get to meet Suan Unnie once again. And in our country of all places. And I have never even dreamed of seeing Lee Dong Wook nor Eom Ki Joon nor Seo Hyo Rim in person.

I didn’t sleep that night. I was busy posting online and answering calls and text messages. I was overwhelmed with congratulatory greetings by friends. I also can’t sleep. At the same time Wennah is going back to Manila early that morning.

We took different flights back because Wennah needs to go to work that day. I took the next day’s flight because we thought that they’ll be coming back to Korea by the 19th (which is true anyway since their flight left at around 1:00am of the 19th), so I want to be in Cebu the entire 19th. I don’t have classes that day anyway.

I sent Wennah to the airport then finally managed to sleep after returning to our hostel. I woke up late. I should be studying and preparing for an exam, but I decided to sightsee in Cebu since I haven’t been there and I don’t know if and when I’ll be coming back.

I first went back to those who have helped us locate them in Imperial Palace and gave them some gifts. Then I started going around town. I had fun. I would have to thank Suna Unnie. If not for her, I wouldn’t have travelled to Cebu. It was fun but it was very tiring going here and there with my heavy bags.

At night, I went to the airport and boarded the plane.

And suddenly a familiar feeling started seeping in. It was the exact feeling I felt when leaving Taiwan last year. My heart suddenly feels empty, as if a part of it was left somewhere in Mactan International Airport. How can an unfamiliar place like Cebu suddenly turn into something special? I didn’t know how am I going to say goodbye to a place that let me create another wonderful memory with my special person? So, Cebu, I’m not sure when I’ll be coming back, but just like Taiwan, please take care of a portion of my heart that I left there.
