Meeting His Brother

I filed a half-day leave of absence yesterday to accompany my fiance’ on his annual medical exam. I chanced upon an old acquaintance in college and I introduced Miel to her. My classmate was not surprised to know that I’m no longer with my daughter’s father.

After that, we went to Miel’s brother’s apartment. It was my first time to meet him and he’s almost two years younger than I. It was awkward to call him “kuya” so I addressed him in his first name. Just like Miel, he is mild-mannered. I think that we can get along well. They’re just very simple people with no pretensions or illusions of grandeur.
