Me Was Intoxicated
"You're crazy." Matt said over the phone.
"No I'm not." I answered slurring my words a bit.
"Wait... are you drunk?"
"Noooo... Well... I had a drink but I'm not drunk."
"So you're intoxicated?"
"Yep." I answered laughing.
Me being in the uninhibited state that I was, I wouldn't stop talking.
Kwento ako ng kwento sa kanya.
He was laughing at me.
"Alright it's time for you to rest." he said.
"No! I'm still talking to you... I like hearing your voice." I answered. Naglalambing ako sa kanya.
"Go close the lights in your terrace and close the door."
"I dont wanna."
"Go on. You need to rest plus it's getting late. Also, close the lights in your room narin."
"I dont wannaaaaaa. I'm scared of the dark plus I'm alone."
"No you're not. I'm right beside you." he answered.
"No you're not. There's no one beside me."
"Well close you eyes and imagine that I'm right beside you."
I fell silent. He's never said that to me.
"Go on close the lights na." he said.
I closed the lights in my terrace and locked the screen door.
"Now close your eyes."
"Alright. If I had magic powers, I'd teleport you here every night."
"I'd really like that." he answered.
There was a moment of silence. I was kinnda sleepy already.
He started singing all of a sudden.
It was my favorite song.
He reached the second chorus.
"I'd sooner buy...defying gravity... I think I'll try defying gravity..." he sang.
"It's kiss me goodbye I'm defying gravity" I corrected him.
"Close your eyes and go to sleep you crazy man."
That's when I realized that he was singing me to sleep.
Took me long enough to realize it.
I was a bit surprised.
He sang another song I also liked.
I was falling asleep.
He finished the other song.
He fell silent for a few seconds.
"Goodnight... hug...hug..." he suddenly said.
He didn't drop the line.
He just stayed on until he eventually fell asleep.
I fell asleep as well.
With a smile on my face because someone tried singing me to sleep.
Something no one has ever done to me.
