Her Name Is


Down the river in the wilderness, a distance too far for my eyes to see unmistakably, a figure emerged gracefully from the ground, a silhouette wrapping her milieu, swaying with nature’s cadence. I could tell it was a face accompanied by her long locks and body with royal proportions.

She was dancing with the night. Her fluidity that joined the water facing the majestic moon, the cold wind that touched my weary face, the trees that broke the silence, and the nocturnal creatures that bore witnesses to the magic, had me enchanted.

And I fixed my eyes at what could be the satellite in her sparkling eyes, the shape was beautiful. I stared at hers for too long. I wanted to see more, and then we were locked, chained by the universal obedience called togetherness. We were face to face. My proximity caught her by surprise. She lifted her hands to mask the entirety of her face, perhaps fighting off the pressure that crept into her midst, and hiding from a stranger. But, I saw it. It was a snicker, twitching her eyes, which left my heart racing the whole night. And she disappeared, remaining without a name.

Nevertheless, there is still a today or a tomorrow when you will tell me your name in my consciousness.

  1. She was dancing with the night, probably enjoying the freedom of her anonymity, playing hide and seek. Keep seeking until she can hide no more.

  2. Her anonymity is what makes my heart grow fonder. :)

  3. You were face to face, but you didn't ask her name?

  4. If only I had known the night better, I would.

  5. Don't you have any clue?

    ReplyDelete
  6. If it isn't too much to ask, why not you. :D

  7. Let's make it simple. What's your name? Imagine we're face to face right now. :)

    1. What is that universal obedience mean?

  8. I'm sorry but the answer will cost your name. :P

    ReplyDelete
  9. Who do you expect I am? Initials

    ReplyDelete
  10. *cost you your name...

    Can you drop your initials instead? I'm just too sleepy to think. :D

    ReplyDelete
  11. You first. Who do you think I am? A name of German origin. That's the only clue I can give. :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Decode the number to get another clue. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. You should have known if you paid attention to details the moment we were face to face. But definitely I'm not a person from the past. :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Guess I'm close to getting your name. 50% of my insides are telling me I know you. Haha. May I know the number of times we were face to face? :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Doing elimination method? Hahaha.. Smart move. :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. If it's one of the means to complete the mission, I have to resort to this. :P

    ReplyDelete
  17. Why are you so curious? What if I'm not the one whom you expect?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Just can't help it. Hehe. You really do enjoy your anonymity, don't you?

    ReplyDelete
  19. :) If you were me, would you admit? Haha.. Thinking of another clue..

    ReplyDelete
  20. I would be you too, I guess, since this is a public platform. But, I have my email...... Haha. :)

    Next clue, please.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Were you able to decode the number? :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yup, telling me you're SG-based and that we've met on a few occasions. Correct me if I'm wrong. :D Not sure about the origin of your name. Hmm...

    ReplyDelete
  23. You're 100% wrong. :) I was right. I wasn't the one you expected.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You're 100% wrong. I was right. I wasn't the one you expected.

    ReplyDelete
  25. "You're 100% wrong" is just another hint for your elimination method. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I told you you were 100% wrong, so I'm not SG-based, but we've met, and still not in SG. Haha.. "This is such a difficult game". But one thing's for sure, I'm not a liar. All you have to do is to analyze the clues.. and maybe do some research, that is if you're really interested. I've given you so many clues already, and I'm putting myself now on the edge of a cliff.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Of course, I'm interested. Look how far we've come in this chatbox!? Haha. I already did a neat research, and I'm sticking to my guns. You're SG-based. Hihi.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Awhile ago, you did elimination method. Now you're doing reverse psychology insisting I'm SG-based for me to ellaborate more that I'm not SG-based? haha.. hmnn.. Okay, one more.. I know you have a sharp memory. Don't you remember any clue from something? Now my one foot already hanging..

    ReplyDelete
  29. I just don't buy "You're 100% wrong." There's technology after all. If you know what I mean. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. What if I tell you we've only met once.. and that I've been following your blog even before we've met, would you still insist that I'm SG-based? :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I appreciate that. Thank you. :)

    "She was dancing with the night, probably enjoying the freedom of her anonymity, playing hide and seek. Keep seeking until she can hide no more."

    I respect your anonymity. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Still don't have an idea? I like reading your blogs coz they remind me of "Portia". :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Clearly you're a hard nut to crack. I already rested my case an hour ago. Haha. Portia is an author?

    Thanks, 25835239. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. it seems that you two are good conversationalist. Btw, what's her name? I'm referring to your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  35. hi grace. don't get her name yet. she's a beast at hiding. haha. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Beautiful Monster by Ne-Yo? haha.. Now i know why you insisted I am Sg-based. Technology... but I'm into Global. :) So Sg would certainly appear the moment you tracked my IP address. As long as I am using "this" computer right now, it would always be Sg. Okay, believe that I am Sg-based. Good luck, monster tracker. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Clever girl. Haha. But still all these clues make me all the more confused, and translating the numbers to make sense, I only get, beh-ceb-ci which is even worse? Help me out, please. Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Writes metaphorically but decodes literally? haha.. Why don't you decode it "dually"? :) Or try reading Dan Brown's books. Maybe you can get some tips.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Use technology. It's very simple. :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Which particular technology? Not rocket science? Basin binuang ra ni nimo ha.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Why don't you ask help from Mr. Google on the theory behind that numbers? Hahaha..

    ReplyDelete
  42. Turns out it's just you, BLUELADY!!!!!!!!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Processor upgraded :) But, I know you'll have a hard time finding who I really am. :D

    ReplyDelete
  44. Where's the German name? Some clues are leading me to nowhere. But I know you, LADYBLUE. We've met last week. :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. You're wrong again. That's why I've converted my codename to another one coz you've mistaken somebody else as bluelady. My real name is of German origin. Why don't you go through the clues one by one and do elimination method?

    ReplyDelete
  46. /German/, /once/, etc...

    ReplyDelete
  47. This guessing game is as I said difficult. I have trimmed the names down to 2 or 3. But then again, I am reminded that you want to protect yourself. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Well, I know you won't post my real name here. ;) pm

    ReplyDelete
  49. Thank you. Checkmate.. that is, if your guess is right. :)
