Stargazer – He’s Electric

He just crept up and took me by surprise

And I used to hate him and his styles of whatever…

Surprisingly, I’m smiling more and more.

The long week was finally over. It was freaking hectic and toxic and yeah I’d say TGIF! I was driving smoothly to that affluent place Peachy told me last night. Peachy was my coolest hang out buddy for five years now. She’s so easy going, always free, loyal, freaking funny and yeah drama free. Above all, she’s a true friend I would always say. She’s smart, she’s perky and she’s Peachy. Goodness, I sounded like cheering.


So I was there finally…in Tagaytay Highlands. It was my first time in the place and I instantly fell in love with it. The elite place was of course ninety percent green, and the second coldest place in the country. I live in a tropical country by the way so when I say cold, it means I’m in the hills. The place was so classy and exclusive and it felt like I was in LA. On a spot, you could view the famous lake in there where a little volcano silently lives in the center. I could see the pretty houses and could smell the luxury of living in there. Peachy always knows real pleasure and leisure I thought while strolling over there to find our villa.


I enjoyed strolling around and because of too much fascination, I forgot the time. Oh heck it’s almost nightfall. I told myself. I was about to phone Peachy when my steps brought me to the most stunning place I’ve seen that night. It’s a lovely slope spot where the grass was freshly mown. Did I say I love that scent very much? I don’t know why but perhaps I was a sheep before this lifetime. Oh geez whatever.. because all I knew was to lie down in there and have a perfect view of the sunset.


Oh this is more beautiful than a HD theater I chuckled to myself. I lay down there and took advantage of the heaven moment.


“I found the jewel…” Someone interrupted. I could have sworn I felt like I fell down from where I was when I heard that voice. “Here you are, cupcake. Peachy asked me to look for you.”

I blinked thrice and almost yelled, “J..Jake?” Of course it was him. Who else could it be…He’s so good at showing up on perfect timing. Perhaps sneaking up. I might as well get used to it now.

Without any word, Jake lay down on the grass beside me. “Wow, this is a pretty view.” Said he, smiling.

“Yes it is. Probably one of the most beautiful I’ve seen.” I added.

“Well, yea but I know a moment more beautiful and magical than this.” He said. I was looking straight at the lake and the sunset but I could sense he was smiling when he said that.

“Give me twenty-five minutes and I’ll tell you after that.” He replied teasingly.


Twenty-five minutes..What’s with his crazy head this time? I wondered.


We then sat down and talked about what he’s doing in the Highlands. He told me he met Peachy last week in the Highlands and he happened to own a house in the place. Peachy though owns a little villa. So apparently, my bestfriend secretly knows Jake might be with us.


Jake looked at his watch and lay down again. I lay down and inhaled the fresh air. I wondered how many minutes have passed. Then he spoke, “It’s about time.”

“Time to what?” I asked.

“Just close your eyes and open them when I say.”


I sighed..”Okay.” What’s with this guy that I follow whatever he says? I closed my eyes and just let my other senses relish the moment. For a while there, I felt nothing but him lying close to me. I could hear nothing but his breath…and my heartbeat…and the air kissing my skin. My other hand was on the grass and I felt a bolt of fire when it touched his. I wanted to open my eyes and wake up somehow but I didn’t want that moment to vanish. His hand moved closer and his skin brushed against mine. I could have sworn, I felt like I was standing at the edge of a cliff. I got so weak in the knees. I felt his hand locked to mine…then he spoke, “Open your eyes.”


The sparkling stars greeted me when I opened my eyes. And he’s right. It’s more beautiful and magical than what I saw at twilight. The lights from the city were mesmerizing, too. At that moment, I couldn’t ask for more but thank this guy…


He just crept up and took me by surprise

And I used to hate him and his styles of whatever…

Surprisingly, I’m smiling more and more.

He’s electric and I can’t help but smile…

Hi Fehl. I have waited for a long time to see the ongoing saga with Jewel and Jake. Things have changed with them, and nice to see Jewel more easy with him. Not sure I feel the same about him (due to the basic off-hand-ish treatment he gave her previously, but I can't help saying that...)

I am surprised he is becoming this nice guy around her. And she is tolerating him. The series deals with love-hate in an interesting way. I agree totally about his perfect timing. He has a habit of arriving at the key moment when she is at some point of solace in her world. You have a way of getting my interest, Fehl. Peachy sounds interesting, and the area sounds like a Philippine sort of Beverly Hills there. LOL. Oh wow, I'd love to visit that place. Volcano island? Is this real? This is awesome.

Love the hub, can I say I love your new avatar too... :)

Oh thank you for the great comments Prof. A :)

Hi Cathy! Sorry if you had to wait..LOL I can see you love Jake so much :p It seems that hate always follows love and vice versa. They always mash up like a couple LOL Yes, the place is real. It's in my dear country. Google Tagaytay Highlands and see how pretty it is. The volcano in the lake is real, too. You always love my avatar LOL Thank you. XO

Hi alwaysexploring! Happy to see you again. :) Cheers!

Cassy showed me this in her Travel book. Oh wow, as in WOOOOW! That is so weird, yet so awesome. I hope it is one of those quiet and dormant kinds of volcanoes. It better be if you live near it. The water around it looks so blue, it's awesome. You should put a photo of it here, Fehl. Take care. (Yes, your eye patches for keeping out the sunlight are great. Heh.) XO

Your writing just brims with emotion...... Not all of us can manage that. It´s a beautiful connection between the author and the reader. You sure have a gift.

Jess, thank you! :)

Hi Cathy! Oh wow Cassy has really been to a lot of places. Lucky her! The volcano is so extraordinary to be there yeah. That's what makes the place even more enchanting. If I had millions, I'd buy a house in the Highlands. It's just so captivating. Yup, the little volcano is quiet for a while. Maybe it would wake up on the next century so it's safe to live nearby. Planning to make a hub bout the place so see you there. Oh good to cover my eyes for a while..they're dangerous LMAO XD

Mik, thank you and happy to see you :)

Hi Dim! Sometimes me wonders too why I write this way LOL At one time, I asked someone to edit one work of mine. He just told me, it was better this way. Revising it would change the meaning and the emotions so I don't care anymore if it needs revising or whatever :) Glad to make that connection. It's a writer's joy :) Love you my friend XX

Crap, I commented here the other day and my comment ain't here. Oh well, happy to pop in and say how much I love this new direction you took here! Things are mellowing out with Jewel and the guy Jake. I seem to remember this place, I ate with friends at a restaurant near here and we were very high up, it was a cliff or hill top, and a bunch of cafes all nestled together. There is some animal zoo or sanctuary nearby. This is a totally awesome place! You'll have to give me and Cathy a guided tour some day! Heh! Cheers, moi friend! XO

Nice. I felt the connection between the 2 of them and then to close your eyes from day to open them to an enchanting magical night is just wonderful. I missed the first ones but i will defintelly be going back and read them. Astra was right, you are great! Feel free to check out my stuff as well. but you got yourself another follower :)

Oh and the lyrics on that last picture are from a song by Emilie Autumn called Opheliac. I love her music its very different.

Oh I gotta kiss Astra for referring me to you :) OMG, I never knew those quotes from the photo were used on a song Opheliac. Thanks for telling me, Nikki. I saw the whole lyrics, it's beautiful. Those quotes BTW are originally from Shakespeare..From Hamlet to be exact. :) Happy to see you here. XO

Kiss her for me too! lol

Yep I love that song, idk if thats your kind of music, but if you ever get the chance you should check her out. Shes very gothic and plays the violin. Ah Shakespeare I love em but the only quotes I remember are mainly from Romeo and juliet. I wrote a poem called "Wherefore art thou?" if you want to check it out and Emilie Autumn has a song called Juliet. It inspired me to write that poem.

blaise25 5 years ago from close to you... Author

lol OK I will kiss her for you. :)

I love her lyrics. There's always some edge of ancient poetry or peculiar feeling.. Her music is electrifying though not my usual type. But WTF I love the way she writes her songs. She plays the violin, that's so sexy. I'll check out your poem. :)
