Gossip Girl: Good Will Hunting


Rise and shine, Upper East Siders. Are you ready for the latest piece of gossip? I hear Kane has his eye for a pretty dark haired it-boy. But it looks like this boy is giving him the ditch.

I didn't like Will immediately. There were no electric sparks, no swooning under the stars, no tingling of the skin. Will and I had bumped into each other on several occasions and yes, he is good looking but he belongs to another group of it-boys and in our world, we tend to be polite and feign disinterest in each other.

As is often the case, we share common friends, common ex-dates, and the likes. But when I got to know him more, I realized he was charming, intelligent, witty: one of those rare guys you can actually date.

"I just saw Black Swan. It's quite intense," I told him once.

"It is. It's a really great film," he replied

"So are you more of the white or black swan," I asked him playfully.

"Hahaha. Hmmmmmm... I'd have to say both. But I'd like to focus more on the white," he said, laughing.

"Well… so far, all I've seen is the black swan, the seducer of men," I teased him.

Over time, I learned he studied at the De La Salle University, has a degree from the Asian Institute of Management, and works for his family's business. But I noticed that he was getting to be more and more distant.

"Honey, nakakainis. (I hate it). He would sometimes reply to my text five hours later! Five!!! Argh!!!," I said to Vackie.

"Ay hindi happy. (That's not good.) Dapat you should be telling me you were fucking five hours later," V said laughing.

"I know! I mean, WTF! Nakakainis! (It sucks!)"

"Isn't it ironic that of all the men in your life, the one you actually like is the one who may not like you back?"

"I know. Hay. Ang guapo kasi niya. (He's sooo good looking.) And he fits the profile of guys we like; someone well-bred, well-mannered, well-educated, well-read. Sigh. Quel dommage."

One day, I decided to ask Will about what was bothering me.

"Hey Will, I noticed you haven't been responsive to my texts. Is everything okay? Uhmm, do you have a boyfriend?"

"Hey Kane, I am still single. I'm sorry I'm just very busy right now. I am applying for a new job kasi plus I have school. Good night :)"

I thought carefully of what to say to him next.

"It's alright, Will. I guess things are hectic for you these days. I was hoping to get to know you better. Perhaps… another day. =) Good luck on the job hunt. I hope you do well."

"You okay, honey? So I guess this is it huh," V said after I told him what happened.
I turned my head and looked at him.

"Of course not," I replied. "I'm surprised the thought even crossed your mind. Don't you know by now that I always have a plan B?"

"OOohhh. Do I smell a scheme?" V said, the beginnings of a smile playing on his lips. "Do I get to play a part?"

"Not this time. This one requires the skills of Arlan."

The next day…
"Honey, I need your help with a scheme," I told A.

"Ohhh. What kind? Is this for a takedown?"

"Relax. This one is much simpler. All I need you to do is to get Will very drunk the next time we see him at the club."

"Ah Hahahaha. Gusto ko yan. (I like that.)"

"You know the drill. One drunk girl equals one easy girl."

A wise man once said, "It's better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles." But some warriors just can't give up the fight. And so they push the boundaries and break the rules just to win the war.

Be careful K. Everyone knows even the best laid plans can fall apart in the Upper East Side. And when it does, things can get ... dirty.

"...well-bred, well-mannered, well-educated, well-read. Sigh. Quel dommage."

He have a blog?? Didn't think so. You, K, DO, so the above quote should be about you.

Um, sounds like a cad to me! Get him liquored-up, have you way with him, and move on!

"no electric sparks, no swooning under the stars"

Does it really have to be this spectacularly grand?

But I'm digging this whole drama. Smiles.
