"I’m Sorry"

At about 6:30 PM, November 2008
Overheard conversation

Guy: can we talk?
Girl: about what?
Guy: about us
Girl: as if there’s an “us” u okay?
Guy:: u know what I’m talking about, so, can we talk?
Girl: we’re already talking aren’t we?
Guy: I just wanted to say I’m sorry
Girl: for what?
Guy: for what I did…I’m sorry..

———-silence———-

Guy: I know what I did to you was wrong. I’m really sorry. And I know there’s nothing I can do to change what has happened. I’m willing to do everything just for you to forgive me

Girl: its more than “I’m sorry”. Its way beyond that. What you did to me was unforgivable. I don’t know if I can. I have always been afraid of you. I have always been at distant. So afraid you’ll do the same thing again, which you attempted to do again several times when I got here. Wasn’t it just a week ago when you tried doing it? Honestly, just by merely talking to you right now makes me shiver with fear. I hated seeing you, I hated hearing your name, I hate the thought of you. For the past months, I have mastered the art of “patintero” with you in this house. Its always about you! It was always about what you say and what you think. Even though you re doing wrong things to me, still, people believes your story and not mine. I lost all my credibility people around us. I lost my respect in you. I don’t recognize you as my relative anymore. For me, we are not related at all. You re just a stranger to me. I don’t if I can still forgive you.

———silence—————

Girl: do you still have anything to say?

Guy: just I’m sorry…I’m really really sorry for everything (tears falling down his cheeks)

Girl: so, I’m suppose to believe you’re really sorry for what you did because of the tears you’re showing now? I wonder what brought the apology and the tears.I gotta go, if you still have anything to say, save it for next time. Even though I couldn’t forgive you, I still wish you well. I guess maybe your conscience’s bothering you big time.

Guy: I hope someday you’ll find it in your heart to forgive me.

I wonder if the girl will still be able to forgive the guy for his wrong doings. It takes a lot of courage to come up and say sorry and ask forgiveness. I’m also curious as to what brought the guy to ask for her forgiveness. I’m sure there’s a reason for that. I guess for her “sorry” isn’t enough for her wounds to be healed, wounds that the guy caused her. It will take more than a million “im sorrys” before the girl be able to forgive him. Only time can tell. Only time can heal the wounds.

The guy’s about to leave…..
