We reached our destination after a series of unfortunate events, feeling glad and proud of ourselves for braving through unruly conditions. We arrived late for the mass, but just in time for the festivities. The dancing and the fireworks were awesome. As cliche and pathetic as it may sound, Katy Perry's Firework really came to mind at that moment.
When it was time to go home, we were tested yet again. Getting a ride was close to impossible. When we decided to go inside EMall's back entrance and go out the front to avoid getting wet, we were blocked. The security guard told us the mall was closed. So we were left standing outside along with more than fifty people. Just when the DJ at the radio booth started to play California Gurls, April saw a jeepney we could ride. It was full but at least there was hope now. We could trace where they came from. So we walked in the rain, singning California Gurls in the streets.
We did get to ride a jeepney after, but it only brought us halfway home. When we reached our stop we decided to get a cab so we can get home ASAP. We couldn't wait to get clean and cozy. Getting a cab seemed easier then, but most refused upon knowing the destination because they were headed the other way. After five rejections, the cab to save our asses came along. When we got in and heard what was on the radio, we just laughed. It was Teenage Dream about to end. We laughed recalling how Katy Perry's songs were played during the highlights of our night.
Last night was a struggle, but we knew it was also a test of faith. It's easy to give up on the challenge if you were alone, but the company of friends made it all bearable for us. That and Katy Perry's songs. Haha!
