Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber entered the venue dressed down, all smiles, while greeting the crowd. The day was June 11, it was raining hard. But the radiance from the two young stars made the gloomy day turn bright.
The gathering was made to mark another first for MayWard. The two inspired a writer, who goes by the name LilMisSkrengge, who wrote a fan fictionbased on their love team -- that is now turned into a book by ABS-CBN Publishing. Under the publishing group's NoInk label, "Lost Souls" is its first-ever online novel adapted into a book.
Thought Picks: The magic of Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber
In the story of "Lost Souls," Maymay is a wandering soul lurking around the Earth, searching for a way to properly bid goodbye to her boyfriend Bobby. Maymay, however only has 24 days to accomplish her mission, and so she sought for the help of the best psychic in town -- Edward.
Maymay and Edward then search for means to talk to Bobby. They tried and tried but nothing seems to be working.
The clock is ticking for Maymay. Will she ever complete her mission, or will Edward be the reason she'll remain a wandering, lost soul?
MayWard: With LOVE
Back to reality -- Maymay is feeling overwhelmed by the fact that she and Edward were the reason that a writer was able to craft such a beautiful tale.
"Masarap sa feeling na umabot pa talaga sa libro 'yung paghanga sa aming dalawa. Hindi lang kami nagbigay ng pag-asa sa inyo para matupad 'yung pangarap niyo, meron din pala sa inyo 'yung may mga talent na tinatago tapos kami 'yung naging dahilan para mailabas 'yun," she said.
She continued, "'Pag narinig namin 'yung ganyan, kapag nada-down kami, bumabalik kami kung ano ba talaga 'yung misyon namin para sa inyo, at 'yun ay ang magbigay ng inspirasyon sa mga taong natatakot na ilabas kung anong meron sila."
If given the chance for "Lost Souls" to be turned into a movie, will we get to see MayWard play the roles?
"I started thinking about it, of course very honored po ako kung mangyayari 'yun," said Edward, adding he knows that it will be a huge deal.
Here's proof that MayWard is the 'next big love team'
The rainy afternoon was filled with wonder, both from the massive support the two are getting, and how these two have kept their feet on the ground despite everything.
As Maymay put it, "Wala kami kung wala kayo. 'Yun ang totoo. Kaya maraming salamat sa patuloy na pagmamahal."
MayWard's real-life story is definitely turning out to be filled with adventures and love -- and we will be happily leafing the pages on every chapter. <3
