My Eveready Moment

I live in the southern part of Luzon which is a favorite place to visit by Mr. Typhoon and Mr. Storm. When I was young, life in the province was harder than today, specially if you live in the middle of the rice paddies. I grew up prancing on the rice field and tip-toeing on the very narrow path in the middle of the rice field. My father was a postman and a farmer as my mom was a simple housewife and a farmer too. My school was far away from our house and every day I would walk for 30 minutes going to school and another 30 minutes going home. One day, while at school, the principal came and announced that everybody must go home. When we went out of the classroom, we saw that it was dark and rain had started to fall. Since I live far away, I decided to stay in the classroom and waited till the rain slowed. It was getting darker and darker, and the possibility of  the rain to stop was really blurred. So, I left the school and braved myself into the rain. As the night fell and the heavy rain still pouring, it was becoming darker and darker and I couldn't see anything on the road. My umbrella had been overturned by the wind and I was soaking wet. I was so scared but I continued to walk. 
Suddenly, I saw a prick of light, then it was becoming bigger and bigger and brighter and brighter. The light came from a flashlight. And then a familiar figure came out of the light, it was my Father! To my relief, my tears ran down on my face and mixed with the rain as I wrapped my arms on his waist and we continued to walk guided by the light coming from Eveready Flashlight that my Father always had. As a postman, he would always bring an Eveready flashlight and he would never use any battery aside from Eveready. His trust to Eveready was always strong and it never let him down. After the storm, just a week later, my father gifted me my own Eveready flashlight and of course, with Eveready batteries in. Since then, a small Eveready flashlight powered by Eveready batteries is always in my bag every where I go. It's always best to be Eveready, everyday.
