I wrote this during college for my elective class for literature - Creative writing which was taught by my idol and favorite author Gerardo Torres, author of Pink Men in Love and Pink ang Kulay ng Pag-ibig. A shorter version of this story is included in the book A Treat of 100 Short Stories published by Anvil. What is interesting about this is that this maybe a prophetical story. I never knew back then that I was HIV positive and yet the story I made was about it. Maybe I somehow knew that I already have it. Maybe my subconscious is the one who gave me the push to write this. This may be a little sad and depressing but this happens. People do commit suicide after they learn they are HIV positive. We have the society to blame for all the stigma, the hate, the disgust and the fear. We must all put an end to that!
