"You're being way too self-righteous, you know?" said Super, leaning his tall frame on a chair, "It's just drugs. It's not like I'm a mass murderer."
I scoffed, "Sus! Use up more of that stuff, and you might well turn out to be."
"Haller! I can control it naman no? Hindi ako addict," he smiles, "I just don't want to stop yet."
He laughed as I threw some chips at him.
"It's not funny. You're spending way too much and you can't effin' afford it," I said seriously, "Aminin mo, madami ka na nautangan dahil diyan sa bisyo mo noh?"
Super went all quiet and then said, "It's easy for you to say those things coz you're not hooked to it. Do you think I don't have an idea as to what I'm getting myself into?"
"Yun nga eh! Alam mo naman pala?! Bakit di ka pa tumigil?" I ask him, "Every weekend halos nag-gaganyan ka! You even told me na once you stole some drugs pa from your friends."
I added, "And you got fired from your job because ang dami mong absent."
He didn't answer. Just shrugged his shoulders and lit a cigarette.
"You're probably seeing me as one of those "uncool" people who just don't get the idea of how much fun it is," I continued, "How much it makes you happy having friends to do it with and how fabulous you think your new barkada is. Aba, mas gugustuhin kong magmukhang baduy kesa matulad sa inyo no."
"It's hard to see you like this," I said to him, "Sobrang nagbago ka na. You have mood swings and your health isn't improving."
I continued, "Do you even know what your so-called partee friends say about you? Do you know what rumors are spreading about you? I may be an intrusive and self-righteous person but I would never say those things to other people about you."
He was still not talking, but I could see he was crying.
"I can't believe you turned out to be someone who would find happiness in a pill," I added.
I kept quiet. I've been called "Mudra" before by some people because apparently I like to "meddle". Mas gugustuhin ko yatang matawag na pakialamero, but I still won't be a someone who let his friend destroy his life.
Super was a good friend of mine. I say "was" because today, we don't talk much anymore. He runs around with a different crowd.
And no, you don't know him. I think.
