Pia’s burial

Enzo dresses up in head to toe white as he heads out to the car, driving himself to the cemetary to join his relatives in mourning. He buys a bouquet of white lilies and sees his sister’s face as he places it on top of her coffin.

Then he sees their mother crying. He pats her on the back.

‘Kawa si Ate Pia.’

‘…Namatay siya sa aksidente.’

‘Gusto pakiusap siya. Bago nawala siya, meron siyang mga problema na gusto niya uusapan.’

‘Ayoko yun…’

‘Pero gusto niya kung buhay pa siya.’

Then he talks to her husband about it.

‘Namimiss ko si Ate Pia. Kung buhay pa siya, maguusap tayo tungkol sa nursing at ang mga ospital. Sinabi niya sa akin binubully siya ng mga matandang nars.’

‘Kahapon, bagong namatay siya umiiyak siya kasi naalala siya ang mga bullies sa ospital niya. Pagkatapos, ayaw niya maging nars.’

Then they see her getting buried and Enzo cries a lot until it starts raining and then they leave. But he still wouldn’t leave her, buying things that remind him of her and hoping for a glimpse of her again.

Then he dreams of her in heaven after he goes to sleep.
