Isa akong psychopomp, nilalang na sumusundo sa mga taong mamamtay na at naghahatid sa kanila sa kabilang buhay. Pero hindi ito madali…

Maraming mga tao ang hindi pa handa, ayaw tanggapin ang kanilang kamatayan. At isang pambihirang puwersa ang mga emosyon ng mga tao.

Summary of the Story:

Sunny Flower, the Director of Private Psychopomp Agency, assigns Ash, one their psychopomps, in a mission to collect a soul in a hospital. He is assigned to work with Cami, a grim reaper, whom he particularly doesn’t like. Despite his being indifferent to the mission, he goes on his way to the hospital. To his dismay, Cami has already started to collect souls with full of bliss and satisfaction.

Ash proceeds to the rooftop, hoping that he won’t be able to meet any soul. But a girl suddenly appears in front of him. He knows right away that she is a soul to be collected. He is about to move towards her when the girl attacks him which makes him fall on his knees. The girl tells him that she is not yet dead. He doesn’t believe her and tries to capture her but she escapes. Ash follows her presence but to his surprise, he sees her body in a bed, unconscious but still breathing. Cami sees them and starts to attack the girl.

Despite Ash’s explanation, Cami is still insisting that it is their mission to collect every soul. To his disbelief, Cami tries to attack the girl. This makes Ash to decide to reveal his true self. Cami is surprised to know that Ash is half psychopomp, half angel. And as Ash saves the girl’s soul by taking Cami’s attack, he uses his sword to send the girl’s soul back to her body. Due to the incident, Ash is sent to darkness for his suspension – blindfolded, handcuffed, and put away in a coffin with his sword.

“Lahat sila, eh, nag-uusap tungkol sa kani-kanilang mga crush at girlfriend. Samantalang ako, nagpapanggap na lang na nakikinig sa kanila dahil rinding-rindi na ako sa mga ganyang usapan.”

Akala ni Vonn ay ikaka-macho niya ang hindi pag-amin na may gusto siya sa isang babae. Hanggang sa isang araw ay nagulat na lang siya na alam ni Robin na may gusto siya kay Cedie.

Summary of the Story:

Vonn, a junior high school student, has a crush on Cedie. No one knows about this because he thinks it is cool to be different from everyone by pretending not to care about the opposite sex. However, one day, Robin, his seatmate, frankly asks him if he likes Cedie and offers himself to become the go-between on how to win Cedie’s heart.

Vonn starts getting closer to Cedie by teaching her on their Math subject. Meanwhile, Robin has issues with her Math grades that she ends up joining the beauty pageant for their school foundation to make up for her grades. Vonn and Cedie support her.

During the foundation day, Vonn and Robin get trapped in a marriage booth and are given an option to pay a certain amount of money or to share a kiss. Despite Robin’s intention of paying, Vonn just simply kisses her cheeks.

While Robin and Cedie are away from the classroom, Vonn sees Robin’s notebook on her seat. He cannot believe what he reads from it about himself. So, despite the opportunity to invite Cedie to the Junior Senior Prom, he tells the latter he will not attend the event.

Robin overhears that Vonn will not attend the prom and just volunteers to clean the school as a retribution for not attending the occasion. While Vonn is cleaning, he sees another student cleaning, whom he realizes as Robin, just as a romantic song begins to play from the school’s speakers. They dance to the music and afterwards discuss what Robin wrote in her notebook and eventually go home together.

“Depende sa nagdadala.”

Iyan ang madalas sabihin kapag pinag-uusapan ang pananamit.

Dahil magkakaiba ang hitsura ng tao, hugis ng katawan, at maging ang hilig o gusto ng tumitingin at mismong nagsusuot nito, mahirap malaman kung ano ang bagay talaga at ano ang hindi.

Ano-ano ang dapat na magkasama? Sino nga ba ang makakapagsabi kung alin ang tama at mali? Kung sa palagay mo ay sakto na para sa `yo at komportable ka na, kailangan bang magpadikta sa sasabihin ng iba?

Ana, inside Juan’s body, is using her powers of hypnotism and curse to get what she wants. She follows the trail from the police reports. According to the reports, all suspects had their own alibis, but she hypnotizes the suspects one by one. She discovers that one of Juan’s schoolmates is the murderer. He used her sister’s life to transform himself into a better-looking man through black magic.

He tells her not to continue what she is about to do and that her mission is already finished.

Ana just returns the murderer’s face back to how it was and hypnotizes him to give himself up to the authorities. Juan gets his body back and everything goes back to normal. Ana visits Juan and tells him that she can still borrow his body whenever she wants to.
