“As we grow older together, as we continue to change with age, there is one thing that will never change … I will always keep falling in love with you…” – Anonymous
Mhel and Merc’s first steps toward the path of love wasn’t that “magical as other stories out there”, according to Mercrischel or simply Merc. “We grew up in the same street. Have the same circle of friends. More likely pwede kaming mag-fall sa category na nodding acquaintances or what the teenagers call nowadays, “the sometimes friends.”
It was when Merc turned 18 that she felt that so-called magic, in the arms of the “snobbish and quiet” Mhel, who turned her night—her last dance into an unforgettable magical moment.
It was December of 2002 when Mhel started courting Merc and after three months, they became a couple.
As a couple, the two encountered struggles in 2006 as what Merc called a ‘dreaded long distance relationship.’ “Sabi nila mahirap daw, I swear mahirap nga…But I have a strong faith in him, na makakaya namin ito. I believe that missing someone is part of loving them. If you’re never apart, you’ll never know how strong your love is.”
The long wait soon paid off because after a year of constant texts and calls, unyielding “I love you’s” and “I miss you’s”, Mhel followed Merc in Dubai, and in that reunion, she admitted it was like falling in love with the same person again.
“I am really thankful kasi hindi niya ako sinukuan, I know that it’s hard for him as well pero nagtiis din siya. He knows my responsibility with my family and for that I fell for him again…”
“…And now that we are going to face our new beginning as ‘one’ I would never ever trade him for somebody else. And if God would ask me, if given a chance would I ever rewrite my so-called love story, I’d proudly say NO. Because Mhel is the only one who I want to spend my forever falling in love with.”
