A netizen in Ozamiz City got curious when he found a bottle beneath a pile of stones in the backyard of his apartment with something inside – a rolled-up letter sealed with a ribbon. What Chrisan Dee Aequo found turned out to be a break-up letter written in 2004. He posted it in Facebook and labeled it “The untold story of Lorben and Shiela.”

According to Chrisan, he was gathering stones in his backyard to be used for a fence when he chanced upon the bottle. The letter was written by a certain Shiela on a penshoppe stationery and addressed to a certain Lorben. Chrisan wonders where are Lorben and Shiela now.

June 29, 2004

Dear Lorben,

Wala kasi akong choice e, kaya i have write this letter para sa ending. Para makalimutan na kita, yong boses mo, yong mga advice mo. Gusto kitang kalimutan para sa future natin, ayaw ko rin kasing dumating yong time na malaman mo ang totoo. Dahil masakit. Ang totoo kasi ay nagpapangap lang ako kasi dati, i think so na lahat ng boys sa mundo masama, playboy. Iba ka pala, and di man sinasadya I feel in love with you. Every minutes, every second, every night ikaw yong nandito sa puso at isipan ko. Parang sinusumbatan ako ng konsensya dahil sa mistake ko. Minsan nga paranga nababaliw na ako.

Alam kong mali pero … di ko kayang mawala to kahit anong pilit kong gawin para makalimutan ka, kahit ifufucos ko pa ang time ko in my lessons, in watching TV, kahit ano ayaw ka paring tanggalin ng puso ko.

Ngayon lang ako nakafeel ng ganito all my life. Cute mo kasi kahit parang kuya na kita dahil you are 17 years old.. I love u pa rin.

This time ibabaon ko na sa lupa ang alaala mo kahit ilang taon pa ang nagdaan, I’m sure di ito mawawala pag di rin nawawala ang feelings ko sayo.

I <3 U and GOOD BYE.

Love and Care,

Shiela
