A few days ago, I asked my readers to guess the name of the next SCU Campus Girl. But no one really got it right. So, now let me reveal the name of the next SCU heroine. Actually, the heroine was inspired by a real person and the next SCU story was inspired by a true story as well.
So, this is what happened. Last year, I facilitated a contest on Facebook. I asked the participants to share their most memorable moments with their high school crush. A participant shared her story and earned a lot of likes. Unfortunately, the contest was only asking for a certain “moment” or scene, not a (summarized) story so she didn’t win the contest. But since I found her story cute, I told her that I wanted to write a novel based on her story.
Below is her contest entry:
So, there, Meg is going to be the newest SCU Campus Girl.
Well, I’m currently working on the novel. Wish me luck!
UNOFFICIAL/WORKING TEASER OF SCU 20: MEG, THE MYSTERIOUS GIRL:
Isang blogger si Meg. Ang blog niya ay nagpo-provide ng free love advice. Sinasagot niya ang e-mails na natatanggap mula sa online blog visitors at pinapayuhan ang mga ito. She was born romantic. Kahit no-boyfriend-since-birth, pakiramdam niya ay may innate knowledge siya sa pag-ibig. She might be hopeless romantic but she had realistic views about love.
Kilala siya bilang “Miss Terry” pero walang nakakaalam kung sino talaga siya. Sa takot na makuwenstiyon ang kanyang credibility bilang isang “love guru” kapag nalaman ng mga tao na siya ay isang college student na walang experience sa love, pinakatago-tago ni Meg ang tunay na identity.
Hanggang isang araw ay biglang nakatanggap si Miss Terry ng e-mail mula sa crush niyang si Patrick! He was seeking advice about his recent breakup with his ex.
“Should I win her back or should I let her go?” tanong ni Patrick.
Kung hindi si Patrick ang lalaking iyon, malamang ay ipu-push niya itong i-pursue ulit ang ex pero dahil may pagtingin si Meg rito, ang isinagot niya ay, “Let her go and find a new love.” Pagkatapos niyon ay sinimulan na niyang mag-da moves para ma-fall sa kanya si Patrick without revealing who she really was.
Could she make him fall for a woman without a face and with a fake name? Or would this result in her first heartbreak?
