The point was, we saw each other again after many, many years. Manang Lil has been based in Los Angeles for awhile. Marge, my cousin from out of town and I had the pleasure of her company one Friday afternoon. And it was pleasantly awesome
A been there-than that Mom, she single handedly made all the effort, moved heaven and earth, to make a better life for her and her four children. It was a way of getting out of the marriage that wasn't working any longer. It was time to go. Otherwise, what future will her children have around an unhappy situation.

I consider Marge a sister I never had. We have been friends back in college. Though she studied in another school, we were watching movies after classes, eating out when ever our respective schedules would permit.
I knew everyone she dated even the man she almost married. Allan. She loved the guy. Unfortunately, the timing wasn't right I guess. They were still young. And perhaps, pride?
Paths crossed years later. But was there any sense in reviving the love?
