I hate You Because I Love You – Chapter 7

Chapter 7

“Maya, ano bang meron sa inyo ng best friend ng kuya mo? Kayo na ba?”
“Huh?”
“Hay mayabels, tigilan mo ko. May scheduled dinner kayo, naggogrocery kayo magkasama, chinicheck kung nasa bahay ka na. Declaration at confirmation na lang ang kulang.”
“Eh wala nga Emman. Friends lang talaga.”
“Ang showbiz ha.”
“Emman, alam mo namang crush ko si Ricky matagal na.”
“Kaya masaya ka na sa ganyang set up.”
Maya nods her head.

-interruption-
“Grabe ka Maya ha. Ikaw pa ata nanligaw ah. Aray nay!”
Teresita kicked James, surprising him.
“Istorbo ka eh. Patapusin mo ung kwento.”
“Yan tayo nay eh, pag kayo pwede mag-interrupt kami hindi pwede.”
“Ewan ko sayo.”
The rest laughed at the two of them, enjoying their bantering.
“Hay naku kayo talagang mag-ina. Patapusin nyo na kasi magkwento ung dalawa.”
“Nay, kuya, konti na lang po, malapit na.”
Maya who was sitting comfortably beside Ricky spoken up. Ricky kissed her on the temple unconsciously.
“Ewe ka pare.”
“OA mo James ha. Parang di mo ginagawa sa asawa mo yan.”
“Nay, asawa ko nga di ba. Normal un, magboyfriend pa lang ung dalawa.”
“Huwag ka ng makialam, kinikilig ako sa kanila kaya tumahimik ka na dyan.”
Arturo looked at his son warning him not to argue anymore, though they both know James was only teasing his mother.

-Onto the story-
“Maya, I have a brilliant idea.”
Emman’s face was lighting up that Maya’s interest pique.
“Ano na naman yan Emman?”
“Grabe ka Mayabels ha, parang ang tingin mo puro lang kalokohan naiisip ko.”
Maya just smiled.
“Anyways, ito na nga naiisip ko. Oplan pagselosin si Mr. Singkit.”
“Paano? At pano ka nakakasiguradong magiging effective yan”
“Maya, it’s very obvious na may gusto sayo yang best friend ng kuya mo. I think a little push would go far.”
“Eh pano kung hindi effective yang naisip mo.”
“We’ll cross the bridge when we get there.”
“Hay Emman, ewan ko. Kinakabahan ako.”
“Just trust me. Akong bahala.”

Maya’s and Ricky’s Dinner day.
Text message exchange:
R: hi, good morning. I’ll pick you up at 6
M: naku, sorry nalimutan ko. May date ako later.

Ricky was on his way to his car when he received the SMS of Maya.
“What?! Oh no this is not happening.”
Ricky was quite in panic, then he made a call.
“O pare, napatawag ka.”
“She’s going on a date pare!”
“Woah. Calm down pare. Ikwento mo nga ng ayos.”
“Ryan, today should be our dinner day pero I just received a message from her na nakalimutan nya at nakacommit na sya for a date with someone else! I’m hating this. I’m hating this day.”
“Kumalma ka nga pare. Ganito. Isn’t she like under your care? Bakit di mo simplehan ng tanong where is she supposed to go tapos sundan mo. Para makita mo ung guy. Sinabi ko na kasi sayo na sabihin mo na agad. Patumpik-tumpik ka pa kasi, may nakapasok tuloy.”
“I’m not letting that.”
“Okay pare, balitaan mo ko what happens after.”
“Sige pare, salamat.”

Ricky did what Ryan had advise him. He was restless until the time of the Maya’s date. He went ahead of time and made sure that he will be on the farthest table so he could view them from his advantage. At exactly 7, Maya arrived with her date. Ricky was looking at the man, trying to figure out if he is an acquaintance or a colleague. But to his dismay, he wasn’t.
Ricky to himself:
‘he should have pulled out the chair for her. She should be sitting first before him. How ungentlemanly.’
‘why is he not asking what she prefers. KKB pa ata to.’
‘now that’s definitely being rude. Texting while on a date. Babaero pa ata to.’

On the other hand.
“Sino yang nagtext.”
“Si Emman, ang kulit nga. Sabi nya baka nasa paligid lang si Richard mo at nagmamasid. Hahaha Pag nagkataon, baka mapaihi ako. Kayo talagang magkaibigan, walang magawang matino.”
“Grabe ka Wilson ha, yang lovey-dovey mo ang pasaway. Siya nakaisip nito.”
“hahaha. Tingin mo effective tong naisip nyo?”
“Di ko alam, pero sigurado ako galit yun kasi schedule nga ng dinner namin ngayon.”
“Uy, first LQ.”
“LQ ka dyan.”
“hahaha, sige na kumain na tayo bago pa pumunta si Emmie dito.”

Ricky:
‘now I’m not liking this. Magkasundo sila at nagtatawanan as though matagal na silang magkakilala.’
‘I need to do something.’

Ricky left the restaurant stealthily or so he thought.
“Si Ricky ba yun?”
“Ano un Maya?”
“Ah wala.”

-present-
“So ikaw pala talaga ung nakita ko sweetheart. Hahaha. So effective nga ang plan ni Emmie.”
Ricky raised both his hands conceding on Maya’s statement.
“Why Maya, natagalan pa rin ba bago nagsabi si Ricky?”
“Hindi naman po tita, kaya lang kasi same routine kami after that. Hindi siya nagtanong about the date. As in parang wala lang.”
“At un ang akala mo. Naisahan ka niya.”
“It’s not that bro. Syempre ayoko na isipin nyang dahil merong nakipagdate sa kanya kaya lang ako nagparamdam.”
“Hindi nga ba ganun un?”
“Ang kontrabida mo James.”
“Nay, hindi naman sa ganun. Syempre, lalaki ako at alam ko ung mga ganung style.”
“Bakit ganun ka ba kay Alex?”
“Syempre hindi nay. Ako niligawan nyan.”
Alex hits her husband on his head.
“Hon, joke lang un. I love you.”
James cheekily grins that Alex had no choice but to smile as well.
“Ewan ko pano ka natitiis ng asawa mo James.”
“Gwapo ako nay eh.”
Teresita had to laugh at her son and shake her head.
“Ewan ko sayo James, ang kulit mo.”
“So back to the story, when and how?”

If Only – Baby Princess No More?

If Only – Baby Princess No More?

“Sunshine, come here na please. We have to get ready for the mass.”
That was what Maya overheard when she was about to open the twins’ room.
“Nikki, anong problema?”
“Hi mom. Si Sunhine po kasi mom ayaw pa magpabihis. Look at Sky, already done.”
Sky run to his mom.
“Mommy, handsome me.”
“Of course baby. You’re very handsome like daddy and kuya Luke.”
He grinned at his mom. Then her husband peeped in the room.
“Are we ready guys?”
“Daddy, ilabas mo na si Sky, tutulungan ko lang si Nikki sa prinsesita mo, mukhang may topak.”
Ricky raised his brow.
“Well, that’s new. That’s usually mr. grumpy.”
“Well not today sweetheart. As you can see, ready to go na po si mr. grumpy.”
Ricky looked at Sunshine and was surprised to see her only in nappy.
“Come here Sky, let’s go out and see kuya Luke and ate Abby.”
Sky willingly went to his father. Maya then turned to Nikki.
“Anong problema Nikki? Come here Sunshine.”
“Mom, she doesn’t want to wear the dress I prepared so I asked what she wants.”
“Okay, so anong problema sa pinili nya?”
Nikki pointed at what Sunshine has picked to wear and Maya had to control herself for fear of triggering further Sunshine’s bad mood.
“Baby, why do you want to wear that gown?”
“Ish pretty.”
“Yes baby, it’s pretty but you cannot wear that in church. But you can wear it on ate Nikki’s birthday. Then we’ll put a princess tiara on you. Do you like that baby?”
It seemed to sit well on Sunshine that she happily nods her head and smile.
“Hay, thanks mom!” Maya laughed at her and kissed her on the temple.
“Mukhang nagmana talaga sa’yo ate. Namimili na ng susuotin.”
“Oh mom, I think mas matindi si Shine.”
They talked while dressing up Sunshine. They head in the living room where the rest of the family are.
“Okay na mommy?”
“Yes daddy. Nagdadalaga na kasi ang baby princess mo.”
Ricky had a horrendous look.
“What?!”
Maya laughed out loud, Nikki and then the rest of the kids. Sky run towards Maya.
“Mommy, carry!”
Ricky immediately forgot the issue at hand and intervened.
“Sky, daddy will carry you.”
“But I want mommy.”
“Mommy cannot carry two babies.”
Sky frowned not understanding what his dad was saying.
“I’m not two.”
The older kids laughed at Sky’s remark while Maya was holding her laughter.
“Sky, mommy is carrying another baby in her tummy. Our baby bunso.”
“NO!!! I’m baby.”
Maya glared at Ricky, indicating him to stop already.
“Skyyy, of course you’re baby too. You and Sunshine. Let’s go now or we will be late. Sky, go to daddy please, he’ll carry you. Mommy’s bag is heavy.”
This seem to appease Sky and went to his dad. Nikki hold Sunshine’s hand and they all went to their van to attend their mass. After which, they will go to the mall for some family bonding.

[A/N: baka sabihin I’m too biased with Sky..hahaha :D ]

If Only – Cravings

If Only – Cravings

“Dad?”
“Yes Luke?”
“May problema po ba kayo ni Mommy?”
Ricky looked at his son. Reminiscing about when he was still a little kid.
“Dad?”
“Sorry son, may naalala lang ako. Ah, regarding your question, wala naman kaming problema ng mom nyo kaso parang laging galit sa akin.”
“Di kaya pinaglilihian ka nya dad?”
Ricky looked at Luke, realizations dawning on him.
“You may be right son.”
“Dad gusto mo tawagan ko si mom tapos tanungin ko kung anong gusto nyang kainin? Baka makatulong sayo dad.”
Ricky smiled.
“Thanks son.”
Ring..ring..
“Luke?”
“Hi mom! Ask ko lang po sana baka may gusto kayong ipabili, dadaan po ako sa supermarket.”
“Ah talaga Luke? Sige, pwede ba magpasuyo ng mangoosten?”
“Sige po mommy. Bye!”
“Thank you Luke! Bye.”
Luke looked at his dad and Ricky shook his head and smiled.
“Thank you son.”

Home
“Hi Mom!”
“Hello Luke!”
“Ito nga po pala ung pinapabili nyo. Pasensya na po ah, konti lang.”
“Naku okay lang anak. Thank you ha. Siya nga pala, bat di kayo sabay ng daddy mo?”
“Eh may dadaanan pa daw po sya.”
Then they heard his dad’s car.
“Nandito na po pala si dad.”
The twins came running out from their room.
“Dahdi, dahdi!”
Sky shouted. Sunshine following behind.
“Naku ang kambal miss na miss ang daddy nila.”
“Hay naku mom, they were shouting in their room when they heard dad’s car.”
“Joma, dito na lang. Thank you!
The kids kissed their dad to greet them.
“Sweetheart, ano yan.”
“For you sweetheart. Straight from Davao.”
Maya’s interest was piqued and excitedly check on the barrel.
“SWEETHEART!!!”
Ricky was alarmed.
“Ah, sweetheart? Why?”
Maya hugged her husband and peppered his face with kisses.
“Sweetheart! Thank you! Thank you! Ang dami nito. Tapos from Davao talaga.”
Ricky released a sigh of relief knowing his wife appreciated his efforts. Ricky kissed her on the lips.
“You’re welcome sweetheart.”
“Me! Me! Me!!!!!”
“hahaha.. napakaseloso naman talaga ni grumpy Sky. Come here buddy.”
Sky went to his dad who carried him and kissed him on the cheeks. Then he turned back to his wife.
“Am glad you liked my pasalubong sweetheart.”
“Sweetheart, hindi ko like. Love ko! I love you and thank you!”
Ricky smiled, feeling victorious.
“So okay na tayo sweetheart?”
“Bakit? Okay naman talaga tayo.”
“Okay.”
Luke was silently smiling. Crisis averted. His dad looked at him, thanking him silently. He nodded for acknowledgment.

-The night before-
“Ricky, sabi ko ayoko kitang katabi. Dun ka sa kwarto ni Luke matulog.”
“Sweetheart, ano bang meron? Ano bang nagawa ko?”
Maya was glaring at him.
“Ewan ko sayo Ricardo. Basta wag ka dito matulog sa kwarto.”
Then Maya sauntered to the bathroom to clean up.

-inside the bathroom-
Maya was pouting, huffing.
“Nakakainis! Di nya matandaan na gusto ko ng mangoosten, tinanong pa nya ko.”

-last night-
“Sweetheart, do you have any cravings?”
“Gusto ko ung violet ang kulay na prutas. Ung bilog.”
“Ah, sweetheart, parang ang hirap nyan ah. Di mo ba alam anong tawag dun?”
“Hindi ko matandaan sweetheart eh. Basta masarap un.”
“Ummm, wala na bang ibang clue?”
Maya glared at him and turned her back at him. Ricky was surprised so he embraced her from the back.
“Okay sweetheart, magpapabili ako bukas.”
Even though he has no idea what he should be buying he has to assure his wife. She’s pregnant after all.

The following day.
“Hi sweetheart, here’s your pasalubong.”
Maya was very excited to see what her husband bought only to be disappointed.
“Hindi naman yan sweetheart ung pinapabili ko eh.”
Maya’s mood turned sour and Ricky was in panic as he really has no idea what his wife wants. He bought grapes, duhat, and plums.
“Ah sweetheart, I’m sorry. “
Maya huffed and turned her back at him.
“You’re in big trouble Ricky.”
Indeed he was, he’s just lucky he got great kids.

-present-
“Grabe sweetheart thank you talaga. Ang sarap. Gusto mo?”
“It’s okay sweetheart, para sayo talaga yan.”
Ricky was enjoying watching Maya eat mangoosteen and she was teaching the twins how to eat the fruit as well.
“ummy mommy.”
“Mukha nga Sky, andungis mo na. hahaha”
Sky laughed along his mom. Sunshine on the other hand was eating like a princess, she uses spoon.
“Hay Sunshine, you’re just like ate Nikki.”
“Mom!” Nikki jokingly protested. And the family laughed.
“Is it yummy Shine?”
“Yes mommy.” She answered and smiled at her mom.
The older kids were enjoying as well eating the fruit.
“Sweetheart?”
“Yes, sweetheart? You want anything else?”
“Ummm, eh kasi di ba galing Davao to.”
“Okay? Gusto mo pa bang magpaorder uli ako ng mangoosten?”
“Ah no sweetheart.”
“Eh anong gusto mong paorder ko sa Davao?”
“Durian.”
The older kids’ eyes bugged out. They never go near the fruit section if they see durian on stock. Ricky on the other hand was excited, he secretly loves durian. He just couldn’t buy some since he knows their kids are no fan of this fruit.
“Sure sweetheart. Papabili ako ng marami.”
“No!”
Their kids shouted in unison. Ricky was controlling his laughter.
“Ah okay.”
Seeing their mom’s forlorn face, they panicked. Good thing Luke was fast to recover.
“Ah mom, ang ibig po namin sabihin wag masyadong marami kasi baka mabulok po. Sayang naman. Eh malalaki po di ba ung mga durian from Davao.”
Ricky had to cover with a cough his laughter.
“Ah, tama ka Luke. If ever naman, pwede na rin ung sa supermarket. So, sweetheart, makakabili ka bukas?”
“Sure sweetheart, whatever you want.”

Mommy happy, everybody happy too. 

I Hate You Because I Love You – Chapter 6

Chapter 6

-Rewind, 5 years ago-

“Maya, sigurado ka bang ayaw mong sumama sa amin. Mag-isa ka lang dito.”

“Okay lang po ako dito tay. Papasyal na lang ako dun. Oh di ba, sosyal pasyalan ko.”

“Hay naku kang bata ka talaga.” Her mother quipped. “Hay, mamimiss kita. Ingat ka dito. Tawag ka lagi.”

Teresita embraced her daughter tight as her father looked on.

“Maya, pakabait ka dito. Baka puro party atupagin mo.”

“Grabe ka kuya para namang nagpaparty ako.”

“Alam ko naman, niloloko lang kita. Pero mamimiss kita kulit.”

James embraced his sister.

“Ingat ka dito ha. Tawag ka lagi.”

“Kuya, mahal un, kaw na lang tumawag.”

“Hai..kaw talaga di na makausap ng matino.”

“Hahaha, napakaseryoso mo kasi kuya. Hindi ako sanay.”

“James!”

They all looked where the voice came from.

“Oh pare, nandito ka rin.”

“Hinatid ko sila mama, papunta na silang China. Hi tita, hi tito.”

“Wow! Akalain mong sabay pa alis namin.”

“Ah ngayon na rin ba? Kala ko bukas pa. Kaya pala natawag ako sa inyo walang nasagot. Ingat kayo dun pare, tawagan na lang tayo.”

“Sige pare. Oo nga pala, ipapakiusap lang din sana, baka pwede pakitignan-tignan tong kapatid ko.”

“Maiiwan si Maya?”

“Oh bakit parang ayaw mo? Di naman tayo magkakasama.”

“Wow, taray, nagtatanong lang po ako.”

“Teka, teka, baka magaway pa kayo. Pag may time ka lang pre, check mo lang sa bahay although andun din pa rin naman si Doris.”

“Walang problema pare.”

“Oh Richard ha, pasuyo na lang sa anak ko. Pagpasensyahan mo na lang pagsusungit.”

“Opo tita Tessie, tito Art, makakaasa po kayo.”

“Sige Richard, mauna na kami, tinatawag na ung flight namin. Basta anak, tatawag ka lagi at magiingat ka dito.”

“Opo tay. Ingat din po kayo doon.”

One last hug before Maya’s family depart.

“Do you need a ride?”

“I can manage.”

“Can’t we be civil with each other? Tutal binilin ka sa akin so most likely madalas tayo magkikita.”

“Hindi mo naman kailangan sundin un, di naman na ko bata para bantayan.”

“Your family means well. Can’t you for the sake of their peace of mind just follow?”

“Whatever!”

-Present-

“Naku anak, pasaway ka talaga, nagmamagandang loob lang si Ricky. Pero paano kayo naging okay?”

“Nay, naman kasi, iniinterrupt mo agad. Nagsisimula pa lang ung kwento, syempre di pa magkasundo agad.”

James’ quick response making everyone laughed.

“So, pwede na nila ituloy nay?”

“Naku James, mababatukan kita. Syempre gusto ko dun sa magandang kwento agad.”

His mother’s response causing another bout of laughter from everyone.

-Back to the story-

Maya conceded and rode with Ricky.

They have eventually formed a pattern where she and Ricky would have dinner for at least once a week. Ricky would check on her every night to make sure she is home safe. If time permits, they would do their grocery together on Saturdays or on a weekday.

-interruption-

“So paano naging kayo?”

“Hay nay, excited. Antayin mo na lang.”

Another laughter. Arturo reached for his wife’s hand and kissed it.

“Tere, hayaan mo ng matapos ung kwento. Dadating din dun sa gusto mong part.”

Teresita sighed, “Hay, nakakainis kasi. Di ko man lang nasubaybayan ung lovelife nila.”

“Mas okay nga un nay eh.”

“James, babatukan na talaga kita.”

“hahaha. Peace nay!”

[A/N: working on some chapters while watching rewinds for inspiration.. enjoy! And thank you all for reading. :) ]

I Hate You Because I Love You – Chapter 5

Chapter 5

Ricky knew his friend has doubts with him, so he followed him as they step out of the house.

“Bro..”

But before he could finish what he was about to say, James faced him and hit him on the face. It was too late for Richard to react that he felt the hard blow and would have drop down had he not regained his balance.

“Sorry bro, mahal ko talaga kapatid mo. Maintindihan ko naman kung di mo matanggap sa ngayon pero sisiguraduhin kong maipakita sa inyo na karapat-dapat ako sa kapatid mo.”

James heaved a deep sigh before speaking.

“Pare, di ko maintindihan. Bakit kapatid ko pa? Kilala kita. Di ba may nakukwento ka noon na gusto mong ligawan pero hindi mo maligawan kasi..”

Ricky just looked at him and realization dawned on him.

“Oh my! Don’t tell me?”

“Bro, matagal na kong may gusto kay Maya. Di ko lang masabi kasi kaibigan kita. Kaso nung nagmigrate pamilya mo at parents ko at naiwan kami pareho ni Maya..”

“Sinamantala mo.”

Ricky shakes his head. “Hindi pare, I took it upon myself to take care of her. Feelings aside, I made sure that she is well taken care of. Na alam nyang may kasama sya dito. Kung nadevelop man siya sa akin, kasi naglakas loob na akong aminin ung totoo.”

“Tama siya kuya.”

Both were shocked that Maya was already out and listening to their conversation.

“Hindi naman nya pinilit ung sarili nya sa akin. Kusa kong naramdaman na mahal ko na siya. Matagal ko na siyang crush kuya, kaya ako lalong naiinis sa kanya nung mga teenagers na tayo kasi akala ko kapatid lang ang tingin nya sa akin.”

“I know.”

“What?!” Maya and Ricky simultaneously asked.

“What do you mean brod?”

“Alam ko na may nararamdaman kayo para sa isa’t isa. Siyempre gusto ko kayong dalawa ung makadiskubre.”

“Eh bakit mo ko sinapak?”

“Ano..”

“What!? Kuya!”

James cringed.

“Eh nagulat kasi ako. Madalas naman kaming magkausap sa phone pero di nya sinasabi.”

“Syempre pare gusto ko personal kong sasabihin kaya nga sinigurado kong andito ako sa dinner na to.”

“At kuya, wala kang karapatan sapakin ang boyfriend ko.”

“Hay. Yan ang ayaw ko eh. Dapat tayo magkakampi.”

Maya had to laugh at her brother’s tantrums, knowing full well he was only teasing.

“But kidding aside, I am happy that you two ended up with each other. At least I know na maaalagaan ka Maya.”

“I love you kuya!”

“I love you too kulit.”

“Kuya! Ano ba yan, ang tanda na natin para tawagin mo ko nyan.”

James pinched her nose before responding, “Sis, you will always be my kulit.”

“Aww, ang sweet mo talaga kuya kaya kita namimiss.”

Maya hugs her brother who then teased her.

“Hmmmm..hindi kaya sinagot mo si Richard kasi namimiss mo ko?”

“Kuya!” “Pare.”

“Hahaha, kayo naman di na mabiro. Pero seriously I’m really happy for the both of you. Pare, ingatan mong mabuti tong kapatid ko. You know how much I love her at pag niloko mo alam mo na.”

“You have nothing to worry about. She’s in good hands. I love her dearly and I will make sure that she will always feel loved.”

“Yiii. Tigilan mo nga bro. Kinikilabutan ako.”

Maya and Richard laughed. James gestured for a hand shake with Richard who accepted eagerly. Maya then went to Richard’s side and touched his face tenderly.

“Sweetheart, okay ka lang?”

“I’m ok sweetheart. Don’t worry, nothing that a kiss and hug won’t cure.”

“Haaaa! Tigilan nyo yan! Andito pa ko!”

And they shared another heartily laugh.

“O, tapos na kayong magusap na tatlo? Pumasok na kayo at magkwento na kayong dalawa. Malaki ang utang nyo sa amin.”

I Hate You Because I Love You – Chapter 4

Chapter 4

At Lim’s mansion.

“I think Ricky’s here.”

Donya Esmeralda opens the door.

“Oh Maya! You made it. Oh hija how I missed you. Kumusta ka na? Come in, come in.”

Donya Esmeralda engulfed Maya in a big hug.

“Namiss ko rin po kayo tita.”

“Hi Ma.”

“Hi son, nandyan ka na pala. Let’s get inside at nang makakain na. Kanina pa sina Teresita dito.”

Donya Esmeralda walked ahead as Ricky ushered Maya inside.

Maya went to her parents to greet them.

“Bro!”

“James, pare.”

“Buti di ka busy.”

“Eh si mama pinapaguilty ako. Kababalik nyo nga lang naman di pa ko magjoin sa dinner.”

“Well at least it worked son. Kami rin ng papa mo kababalik lang ni hindi mo nadadalaw.”

“Ma, I’m here na nga po para makabawi.”

And laughter filled the air.

At the dining table. Don Roberto and Donya Esmeralda were sitting side-by-side, in front of them were Teresita and Arturo. On the other side, James was seated beside his wife, Alex leaving Maya and Richard to sit together. Laughter and beautiful stories filled the night. All throughout dinner time, Richard was very much solicitous to Maya. An act that was never missed by their parents but chosen to keep to themselves their observation until..

“Wait lang guys, something is wrong here.”

Everyone halted and all had the same wondering face, waiting for James to elaborate.

“What do you mean son?”

“Tito Roberto, ako lang ba nakakapansin, pero ang tahimik nina Maya at Richard. Ceased fire ba kayo?”

Maya swallowed an invisible lump on her throat while Richard put down his utensils and looked at everyone on the table. All looking at the two of them.

Richard laughed before answering.

“Grabe ka naman James, para naman kaming mga bata parin para di magkasundo.”

“Oo nga naman anak.”

“Nay, hindi un eh, may iba talaga eh. Hindi normal na magtagal silang magkatabi na hindi nagtatalo.”

Everyone had to laugh at that.

“Hon, ano ka ba, tigilan mo na nga, namumula na si Maya oh.”

“Okay, I believe it’s time we tell you guys the truth.” He heaved a sigh before continuing.. “Ma, Pa, Tito Art, Tita Tere, Bro James, Maya and I, we’re in a relationship.”

James wasn’t expecting for that bombshell that Alex had to close his mouth with her hand. When their mothers recovered, they shrieked with glee. Both Roberto and Arturo could only shake their heads and smile. While Richard took Maya’s hand under the table as though creating a solid alliance waiting for their family’s reactions to subside.

“I knew it, I knew it. When I opened the door and saw Maya nagulat ako, pero mas nagulat ako nung makita kita Ricky. I was wondering na but my happiness to see that you both have arrived, nakalimutan ko nang itanong. And kanina ko pa kayo pinapanood kumain. Ricky was being very solicitous with you Maya, hindi ko na pinansin kasi baka mailang pa kayo. Hay, mga anak, I’m so happy with this news.”

“I second the motion Esmie. Grabe! Kinikilig na ko kanina. Akala ko ako lang nakakapansin. Grabe mga anak, kelan pa at paano?”

“Before we answer your questions tita, Pa, tito Art, James? Is this ok with you?”

“I have nothing against with this.”

“Okay na okay ka sa kin Ricky, at least kilala ka na namin.”

“Bro?”

James motioned with his finger to wait. And then he laughed shocking everyone. He was really laughing so hard that he was already holding onto his stomach.

“Hon, okay ka lang?”

In between laughs, he told them what he thinks.

“Grabe! <hahaha> I didn’t know you both had it in you <hahaha>. Okay na ko, now tell the truth. Anong meron at magkasundo na kayo?”

Richard and Maya looked at each other.

“Kuya, kami na nga ni Ricky. Boyfriend ko siya, medyo matagal na.”

James turned serious realizing that his sister really has a relationship with his best friend.

“Pare usap tayo.”
