how come hindi agad na-recognize ni Ted and Richard si Jake/Mark?

it was just a year since they haven't seen each other...

perhaps they thought that Jake died in the San Jose tragedy... but still, there should be an instant and familiar reaction...

just wondering...

this just means that jake/mark had reconstructive surgery. with all probability, his face could have been extremely disfigured. it is possible that he drifted off to that resort frequented by foreigners, the one where the river empties to. amnesia could explain why his memory is clouded. and his new identity may have been instigated by monica, the identity re-engineering expert.

u have such an amazing talent.... i have read ur story from the start. you could say that im your fan now. maganda ang twist na ginawa mo sa story... at first, kala ko, yung story is full of sex.. pero nagkaroon din ng substance habang tumatagal... naappreciate ko yung story as time past by. alam kung my pagkataboo ang story na ito kung ipupublish mo ito as a book. pero siguro, kung makaapas sa standard ng mga publishers... maybe, pwede sya maging book series... i hope to see a new and better story pagnatapos itong first mo.
