Eventually, we lost touch of each other. And after a few years, I began to see him in a few TV and print ads as a model. He has bloomed into a beautiful man with a gym fit body to match his angelic face. I bumped into him at Gateway and I asked him if he still remembers me. He said, how can he ever forget the gay man who gave him his first sexual experience.
About a year after, I was doing a show for the Malacanang palace. We were billeted in a hotel somewhere in Manila. My stage director was boasting that a model was waiting for him by the lobby. The model was his "thing" for the night. And as we got off the elevator, I saw him, the Atenean hunk from my past. And just like most models, he has become a part of the pricey sex trade.
